Helga Paris: Fotografie

Helga Paris: Fotografie

Helga Paris (born in 1938 in Goleniów, Poland) occupies an outstanding position in German photography. Her oeuvre exhibits the poetry of a Henri Cartier-Bresson as well as the austerity of an August Sander or Renger-Patzsch. Paris, who has lived in Prenzlauer Berg in Berlin since 1966, has chronicled the long history of postwar East Germany. For more than three decades…

Lee Friedlander The Nudes: A Second Look

Lee Friedlander The Nudes: A Second Look

Lee Friedlander’s exploration of one of photography’s most enduring genres began almost by chance, in the late 1970s, when a teacher colleague at Rice University in Houston lined up a regular schedule of nude models for his students. Almost immediately, Friedlander found that he preferred to photograph the models at their homes, and ingeniously deployed household objects such as bedside…
Mitch Epstein: New York Arbor

Mitch Epstein: New York Arbor

Mitch Epstein’s new work is a series of photographs of the idiosyncratic trees that inhabit New York City. These pictures underscore the importance of trees to urban life and their complex relationship to their human counterparts.

Lisa Elmaleh: Everglades

Lisa Elmaleh: Everglades

In the 1800s, the Everglades were viewed as a landscape to develop and conquer, to alter permanently. To date, more than half of the Everglades have been repurposed for urban and agricultural use. “Freshwater flowing into the park is engineered,” reads the brochure given to all visitors of Everglades National Park. “With the help of pumps, floodgates, and retention ponds…
The Life and Work of Sid Grossman

The Life and Work of Sid Grossman

Sid Grossman (1913–55) and his work were largely forgotten after his untimely death in 1955.

Grossman was one of the founders of the famous New York Photo League and a notoriously…

Lucía Peluffo: Somos uno. Somos dos.

Lucía Peluffo: Somos uno. Somos dos.

The book explores the relationship between two people. One of them, the author. It shows us different aspects of a “love story”. How the way we perceive things does not always reflect the truth. We do not always know where we are standing, so we need to explore. How loneliness appears after a choice we make, why not a journey,…
Guido Argentini: Argentum

Guido Argentini: Argentum

Color and texture radically influence how we perceive shapes. While looking for an innovative approach on a 1995 Miami photo shoot, photographic master Guido Argentini was moved to coat a model in silver makeup. The result was as beautiful as it was intriguing– the subtly grayish tones highlighted angles and surfaces in a way that was other-worldly. Inspired by the…

Chien-Chi Chang: Jet Lag

Chien-Chi Chang: Jet Lag

“Today is Monday, so this must be Zurich.” For those who travel a lot, the world becomes a steel-and-concrete construct of interchangeable flight crews, hotel rooms, and check-in counters. In this jet-setting life, the most important thing is that the power adapter fits. For Jet Lag, award-winning photographer Chien-Chi Chang (born 1961 in Taiwan) has created succinct black-and-white images of…
