Levi Mendes: Swedish Mountains

Levi Mendes: Swedish Mountains

Getting lost along your path is a part of finding the path you are meant to be on. SWEDISH MOUNTAINS is the name of my new series which I invite you to take a look and travel with me through the unique landscapes that northern Sweden has to offer. I walked with backpack and my tent during one week through…
Victor J. Blue: Cities in Dust

Victor J. Blue: Cities in Dust

Victor J. Blue’s panoramic photographs of the destroyed cities of Raqqa, Syria, and Mosul, Iraq, navigate a landscape of devastation from aerial bombardment scarcely seen since World War II. Between October 2016 and October 2017- from the beginning of the campaign for Mosul until the end of that for Raqqa- the US-led coalition dropped 46,683 air-released munitions in Iraq and…
Unlimited: Recent Gifts from the William Goodman and Victoria Belco Photography Collection

Unlimited: Recent Gifts from the William Goodman and Victoria Belco Photography Collection

This exhibition celebrates a major gift of photography, donated over a period of several years, from Berkeley collectors William Goodman and Victoria Belco in memory of their daughter Teresa Goodman. While the exhibition features some historical photographs, such as pictures by the early twentieth-century French photographer Jacques-Henri Lartigue (most of whose work was made between the ages of eight and…
Ron Kusina: Wonders of the Vermillion Cliffs

Ron Kusina: Wonders of the Vermillion Cliffs

These images were made while exploring the North Coyote Buttes region of the Vermillion Cliffs Wilderness, located along the Southern Utah/Northern Arizona border in the U.S. Images of “The Wave” and the “White Pocket” are included. This area is now accessible only by permit, and I feel exceptionally fortunate to have been successful in being selected to visit the area.…
Henri Foucault: THE BODY, INFINITELY

Henri Foucault: THE BODY, INFINITELY

Though the artist will exhibit for the first time at the Galerie Thierry Bigaignon, Henri Foucault’s work is already well-established. This show, starting on April 4th, will thus be a great opportunity to discover or rediscover the artist’s specific universe – that of a photographer-sculptor or sculptor-photographer – through a selection of new works focussing on the body. As an…
Elliott Erwitt: Sequentially Yours

Elliott Erwitt: Sequentially Yours

What happens next? This irksome little question is key to story-telling. Whether ancient bards or trendy filmmakers, narrators have to keep us guessing. Yet, we often forget that life itself is a chain of unpredictable instants – each with its unique character. Even when seconds apart, experiences can be distinctly different. You never know what’s around the corner; until it…
Oliver Abraham: Freedom of Speech

Oliver Abraham: Freedom of Speech

Gallery Julian Sander shows a series of portraits of extraordinary contemporary personalities by Oliver Abraham. Among them are journalists, musicians, philosophers, representatives of the “New Left” as well as artists and writers. Everyone deals with the topic of surveillance and press freedom and expresses their political attitude artistically. The photographs are accompanied by a text by Noam Chomsky about independent…
Jeniffer Andrea Tobón Bedoya: The life knots

Jeniffer Andrea Tobón Bedoya: The life knots

These photographs were taken during a process of change, where I experienced a depression, due to this; I managed to show through the photographs the changes, tests and knots I had to release. I realized, the challenges that we all have to live day by day and how we can overcome them. Followed by this, I sought to show in…
Jason McGroarty: Totem

Jason McGroarty: Totem

Through Totem I wanted to capture the heart-stopping moment when the wild breaches the barriers of the city and reminds us that the line between humans and wildlife is not as clear-cut as we would like to believe in, and that in the animal kingdom, the only thing we can count on is unpredictability, that the unexpected should be expected.…
Phil Penman: “Street” on Kickstarter

Phil Penman: “Street” on Kickstarter

Leica photographer Phil Penman understands New York City as a “kind of living thing in itself.” For over two decades, he has kept his fingers on the pulse of the city as a portraitist of local personalities, fine art photographer documenting the cityscape, and a paparazzo, chasing the celebrity buzz. From the mundane to the sublime, the grime and glamour,…
Fred Mayer: ZURICH PANOPTIKUM

Fred Mayer: ZURICH PANOPTIKUM

Fred Mayer shows vintage prints from his three-part series «Zürcher Panoptikum», originally published in the weekend edition of the Neue Zürcher Zeitung in 1972, accompanied by a text by Hugo Loetscher. Whether publishers, artists, street sweepers or loiterers, they all appeared in front of Mayer’s camera. Following the principle of US photographer Irving Penn, Fred Mayer did not portray his…
Nofar Horovitz: Ties of perception

Nofar Horovitz: Ties of perception

I decided to express in this project my view of humans and their desires, the glass walls that we erect in our way when we are prevented from achieving our dreams and ambitions. Compromising on the mediocre, the norm, the ordinary instead of setting ourselves goals that we perceive as daydreams, with only a rare chance of fulfillment. Relinquishing before…
Taca Sui: Grotto Heavens

Taca Sui: Grotto Heavens

In the five years since his first exhibition, Odes (2013), Taca has traveled extensively throughout China in search of remote locations that resonate in Chinese history through their association with important religious and philosophical traditions. In Odes, he presented a body of work that was inspired by the ancient poetic heritage of China, specifically the Book of Odes (Shi Jing).…
George Digalakis: Silent Waters

George Digalakis: Silent Waters

Minimalism, both as a philosophy of art and life, has deeply influenced my work. I draw inspiration from various objects, like the sea and the sky and from my emotional response to them. It is in the simple feelings that they evoke to me—vastness, quietness, tranquility, symmetry, and balance—that I find beauty. The water, an element I am deeply drawn…
André Kertész: Window Views

André Kertész: Window Views

Following his move in 1952 to a 12th story apartment overlooking Washington Square Park, the 56-year-old Hungarian emigrant André Kertész would begin a series of modernist masterworks shot from his window that he would continue until his death in 1985. From the privacy of his home, Kertész honed his lens on anonymous city dwellers, capturing fragments of passersby on the…
Albert Watson: INK

Albert Watson: INK

Kahmann Gallery is proud to present works from Albert Watson’s newest project, ‘INK’. Watson has reimagined his own work, by incorporating and superimposing textured ink patterns on top of work he created separately. Watson delved into his own archive to find works he could reimagine and give a literal new layer of meaning by using the very special technique. Here…
Patrick Desgraupes: Voodoo Spirit

Patrick Desgraupes: Voodoo Spirit

It was in Togo and Benin that Voodoo was born, but from the 17th century, black people enslaved spread Voodoo in America and in the Caribbean. For historians, the immense suffering of slaves deported to America is undoubtedly at the origin of the transformation of Voodoo on the American continent, towards practices more related to witchcraft or Satanism. In the…
Karl Blossfeldt and Jim Dine: Poetry of Plants

Karl Blossfeldt and Jim Dine: Poetry of Plants

Nature continually beguiles us with its wonders – the proliferating vegetation with myriad plant species and forms, their spatial disposition, the light that plays across them and the overall effect – and capturing them photographically is at the heart of the exhibition. The works on view manifest close observation and sensitive perception of flora and the verdant environment as documented…
Vahid Babaei: The wind will carry us

Vahid Babaei: The wind will carry us

Wind is fertilizer. Wind is offspring of many legends and historical stories. Wind sometimes covers, sometimes naked. Involving human feelings with natural phenomena is full of enjoy for me. Concealing human feelings behind a mask and compelling contact thought, and think about who are they? How they living? and what do they think about? ‘The wind will carry us’ was…
Oscar Rejlander: Artist Photographer

Oscar Rejlander: Artist Photographer

Often referred to as the “father of art photography,” Oscar G. Rejlander has been praised for his early experiments with combination printing, his collaboration with Charles Darwin, and his influence on the work of Julia Margaret Cameron and Lewis Carroll. This exhibition is the first major retrospective on Rejlander, highlighting new research and a selection of works brought together for…
