With the recent independent and self-publishing boom much of the focus has been on books, but there has also been some interesting stuff going on next door in the world of photo-magazines. Berlin-based Album released their first issue at the end of last year with work by Victor Balko, Clemens Bechmann, Oliver Dignal, Lena Ditlmann, Max Eulitz, Egor Kirpichev, Timo Klos, Marie-Luise Marchard, Jan Nikolai Nelles, Patrick Raddatz, Pujan Shakupa, Stefan Stark, Thomas Weyand and features an interview with the Finnish photographer Ville Lenkkeri. All of the work was new to me and I found it to be a really interesting mix (although the Dusseldorf school casts a long shadow in this issue). I particularly like the magazine’s XXXL broadsheet newspaper format which gives them the opportunity to experiment with the design and to go big when needed (but, mercifully, not just for the sake of it).
Album has just put out a call for submissions for its second issue: »Same / Same«, which “examines the question of the singularity of photographs: how new and unseen can pictures still be today? Which artistic possibilities lie in the doubling of motifs? Which concepts play with repetition and recognition?”. More info on their website.
Makarapa and Vuvuzela
128 Page Book, 10 x 8 inches (25cm x 20cm)
100 color photographs from the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.
Printed 4 color offset, perfect bound.
Limited Edition of 250, hand numbered and hand signed.
In June and July of 2010, South Africa hosted the largest and most popular sporting event in the world. This is the first time that the FIFA World Cup (European Football) has been held on the continent of Africa. Sixteen years after the end of apartheid this event represents a particularly important time in South African history, where South Africa was able to stage a massive “coming out” party for the rest of the world.
This series of photographs focuses on South African national identity expressed through portraiture of football fans as well landscapes of football fields around the country. South African soccer fans are particularly “colorful” and are known for their trumpeting of Vuvuzelas and their outrageously adorned headgear. These incredibly artful creations, known as Makarapas, have their origins in the mining hardhats that were once synonymous with black migrant workers of the apartheid-era. Today, these mining helmets have been transformed into colorful symbols of national identity now donned by both blacks and whites.Ian van Coller | Makarapa and Vuvuzela | World Cup 2010 | Doring Press | 2011 | self-published | PhotoBook |
