Vandret Publications is proud to announce our latest book, Hired Hand, containing photographic works of young artists Stuart Bailes (UK), Bea Fremderman (US), Ingo Mittelstaedt (DE) and Athena Torri (US).
Their elegant landscapes and still lifes are re-appropreated – collaged, juxtaposed and presented alongside internet stock photographs to make up a softspoken picture poem in which brute force and a slight caress suggest an undefined plot.
Also available as special edition with a signed and numbed archival pigment print made by Flemming Ove Bech and Johan Rosenmunthe (designers / editors / publishers).

"And your visions
are your exile in a world where a shadow has no identity, no gravity.
You walk as if you were someone else.”
J Carrier has had a nomadic lifestyle, moving from Washington D.C. to Ecuador, and then to Africa and the Middle East, every move taking him further from his friends and family. During his time in Israel, Carrier began to feel an affinity with the migrants who had landed in the dusty city of Tel Aviv, relating to their experience as an outsider, someone far from home.
Elementary Calculus, through a series of portraits, landscapes and still life photographs, observes the publicly private moments of these peregrine foreigners as they attempt to connect back to their homes. In his documentation of migrants and refugees in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, Carrier explores the distance between reality and desire – the want for what was and the hope for what will be – and traces the manner in which we navigate the points between the unknowns. His photographs resonate with the sense that in a foreign country geographical distance loses its physical measure and home feels like a hazy memory, a half-remembered dream.
Carrier’s subtle yet striking images of Israel and the West Bank throw up more questions than they answer. What does this influx of foreigners mean in a nation that is defined by ethnicity and competing claims of ownership? And how does this complex situation affect these new varieties of refugees? Is there promise in this land for them?
After graduating with a degree in biological sciences, J. Carrier became a drummer in a punk-rock band. He spent most of the past decade living and working in Africa and Israel and now lives in Brooklyn, NY with his wife. He won the fine art award in the New York Photo Awards in 2010, was the Grand Prize Winner at the National Geographic Traveller / PDN “World in Focus” awards in 2010, and was nominated for the Santa Fe Prize for Photography in 2011.

Curated by Marco Delogu
Text by Paolo Caredda
Photographs: Roberto Schena
Graphic Design: Alvise Renzini
Publisher: Punctum, 2012
112 pp.; 51 color photographs; Ita./Eng.
Year of publication 2012
SP67: 13 kilometers of o provincial road from Apparizione, a neighbourhood on the borderline of Genoa, to Calcinara, four houses in the inland. Around here, “Dark Nord Wind” is the name given to the North Wind when it carries rain and storms. The author spent three years to cover these 13 kilometers. More or less, it is the right amount of time if someone wants to catch the mysteries of a Place. His car parked, he descended deep into the woods, uninvited.
Expecting to retrace someone else’s steps, studying the plants, amidst the fog, in the night.
Three years of following his subjects, climbing, meeting the local inhabitants. Eating fast before the storm arrives. These are memoirs of an explorer who desires to extract the sublime where others wouldn’t think to look for it: in a stretch of road, in an encounter with a wild pig, in a frozen night.
Two short stories by Paolo Caredda form the prologue and the epilogue.
A map of the territory provides a geographical reference to those who are interested, with their imagination, in reconstructing the author’s journey. And for those who live in Genoa, this visual essay becomes an inspiration for discovering all the hidden places portrayed in these photographs.
Roberto Schena, born in Genoa in 1960, now lives and works in Milan. He has taught visual arts and semiotics of design, and has been involved in the production of music videos, commercials, low-budget films. He now works for a commercial agency. His work as a photographer has evolved over the last eight years. Schena’s visual work focuses on landscape photography as interpreted through a timeless, dreamlike vision.

Album, Magazin für Fotografie
The white, the erased, the disappearing, the disintegrating, the scattered, the neboulsly shapeless, the dissolving, the outshined, the invisible, the not yet visible, the minimal, the rudimentary, the diminished, the disguised, the indepictable, the long forgotten, the lost.
Photography is the everlasting fight against disappearance. It serves as evidence, as a recourse and reminder; a trace of the past, a chemical inscription of brief moments. Through an incident of light, a juxtaposition of light and dark emerg– es on the film-stock’s coating. The very light which makes everything visible is likewise capable of annihilating it’s own traces. Where are the limits of the depictable? Where does the depicted image begin to dissolve?
The artists of issue #3 are Ben Alper , Viktoria Binschtok , Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin , Ezio D’Agostino , Goekhan Erdogan, Altan Eskin , Nicolai Howalt , Daniel Müller-Jansen , Jim Reed, Simone Schulz, Eva Stenram , andStephan Tillmans .
The texts have been written by Jon Feinstein, Sandra Groll, Kristina Lykke Hansen, Jule Hillgärtner, Christian Janecke, Christof Maul, Lars Mextorf, Walter Benn Michaels, Marc Ries, and Philippa Snow.

“As I Was Following You”
Coming to grips with a shattered reality, I tried to make an excursion into the uncertainties of urban life, playing with the echo of imaginary world. My subjects accept the failure of order; they sense their own inability to control the world and yet, they keep trying.

july 19, 2012, 6 p.m. - july 19, 2012, 9 p.m.
For the launch of the Copeland Book Market Chopped Liver Press (Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin) will set up a screenprinting facility producing hand-made ‘Chopped Liver’ posters printed on random pages of the International Herald Tribune. They will also screen the film Black Market.
Black Market takes its name from the eponymous film Al Suq al Soda, or Black Market. Directed by the surrealist painter-turned-filmmaker Kamel el-Telmissany, the film was banned shortly after its release in Egypt in 1945, and has since all but disappeared. What is more, this rare copy of the film, a recording from television, has been partially erased by another film – an unknown porno probably made in the 1970s or 80s. The two films share the same strip of magnetic tape, but sit uncomfortably together and transmit inverse aesthetic, moral and political positions. www.choppedliver.info “

A Part is inspired by a relationship experienced primarily through photography, crystals, and digital communication. Regardless of an uncertain future, two people battled to connect over space, time zones and sporadic meetings. Represented as a selection from an ongoing archive of text messages, photographs and screen grabs, this book aims to reconcile with the intra and interpersonal experiences of magic, time, change, expectations and the idea of being together.
