“Nuno’s images are gorgeous, intensely personal, beautifully abstract, and totally cinematic.
They’re like stills from a classic film that doesn’t exist, or memories from a life-changing journey you never took.”
Gary Hustwit (Filmmaker, director of “Helvetica”)
State of Mind is a photographic series, and ultimately a book, about the individual quality of mysterious strangers.
The images were captured over a period of several years traveling in countries such as Japan, Portugal, Hungary, Malaysia, Spain, South-Korea, Romania, Russia, Taiwan - and what emerged is a visual narrative on the poetic quality of individuality and what it means to be lost in thoughts.
The State of Mind series is about the “thinking moments” and the uncertain atmosphere surrounding the people and places encountered on the way.

His first book is a deeply personal photographic essay on growing up in a small village in the north of Germany and a meditation on the relationship contemporary Germany has with its past. Documenting the quiet, precise way in which people conduct their lives, the obsession with making everything new and the almost fearsome stability Ebeling takes us into the life of a hard-working German village. In ‘Land without Past’ contemporary portraits of family and friends are interwoven with images of everyday life in the village from the war years, bridging a gap in personal history.

Kievbound by Mariya Ustymenko (Antler Press)
Kievbound is a selection of black and white photographs recently included in Mariya Ustymenko’s small publication with Antler Press, Cornwall (2013). Created in the artist’s native city of Kiev, Ukraine, during her teens and early twenties, these images are gathered and reassessed to convey an intimately personal story of growing up. Set against the backdrop of rapidly changing city, the series explores the ever present feeling of transience and the subtle connections that exist between the key characters of its narrative – people, animals, and buildings.

The summer ended, but it remains in our memory most clearly. Even though the photographs included in the book come from different periods, they are linked by a common, nostalgic mood. Regardless of the passage of time, we remember summer holidays in a similar way. Time influences the shape of our memories, and it doesn’t spare photographic materials, exposing their fleeting nature mercilessly. In idyllic photographs there appears rapture.

Fleur van Dodewaard - 131 Variations
17 x 22 centimeter / 288pp + inserted map / colour / hardcover / EN / Design: Hans Gremmen /
“131 Variations” is a reinterpretation of Sol Lewitt’s “122 Variations of Incomplete Open Cubes”. Van Dodewaard set about recreating and photographing the piece seeking to produce an exact copy. But in the process things went wrong: some cubes went missing, others appeared double and previously unknown variants arose. With her “131 Variations” Fleur van Dodewaard demonstrates that the 122 variations listed and presented by Lewitt did not represent an exhaustive spectrum of all conceivable possibilities. Accordingly, the “failure” consciously introduces moments of arbitrariness, inconsistency and irrationality into this aleatory process to allow for an element of coincidence, thereby challenging mathematical logic.

Photographs Taken at One-Hour Intervals During a Walk from Galveston Island to the West Texas Town of Marfa and Architecture for Travelers
by Joshua Edwards

Broken Spine review:
Joshua Edward’s 40 day journey through the landscape of Texas is diligently documented in his new book (Photographs Taken at One-Hour Intervals During a Walk from Galveston Island to the West Texas Town of Marfa and Architecture for Travelers) which is part of the Architecture for Travelers series. Presented in the format of novel, this book could be read as both prose and poetry in that it is both a literal document of his trip and a visual mediation on the redemptive qualities of self-reflection in the landscape. The book travels with him as he starts at his birthplace and finishes at his new home, with his partner, and a future ready to unfold. It functions as a personal vision quest, contemplating the transformation of the self into the future through a confrontation with the environment of ones past. As the book ends, I want thank Joshua for letting me accompany him on this quest, and wish him the best of luck moving forward. He seems to have found something on that journey, that is his to keep, but this book allows our own experience as well, a space to confront our own inner landscape and question our future.
Architecture for Travelers is an upcoming collection of poetry and prose written during a year at the Akademie Schloss Solitude and during a walk across Texas. Many of the poems were made for collaborations with Charlotte Moth (artist), Alan Worn (architect), Lynn Xu (poet), and Peter Jakober (composer). The book will be published in November 2014 in a bilingual German/English edition by Edition Solitude in Stuttgart, and poems from it have appeared or are forthcoming in the Los Angeles Review of Books, Poets & Writers, Oversound, a chapbook from Private Line, exhibitions in Les Arques and Gourdon in France, and a choral performance in Graz, Austria. You can also pre-order copies of Architecture for Travelers at the orders page, from Amazon, or from Small Press Distribution.
Joshua Edwards directs Canarium Books. He’s the author of two collections of poetry, Imperial Nostalgias and Campeche, and the translator of Mexican poet María Baranda’s Ficticia.

This hand-bound photobook deals with the neighborhood of Scampia (Naples) which is mainly known as a stronghold of the Camorra mafia. But this book doesn’t show gangsters or junkies, it shows the everyday life of people who don’t have anything to do with all this.
It describes a rough reality which is why I didn’t want it to be a precious object. This is why I overrun the covers with a car and printed it on recycled paper. It comes in an edition of 100 copies.
You can find more info and a video of the whole book on my website www.nicobaumgarten.net

"Light and time are photography’s most fundamental elements. Light and shadow create form; time determines their recorded values. Through manipulations in the photographic process, these images captured on film are presented in ways unique to the medium. They illustrate details both seen by the human eye, and those seen only by the camera.”

Essay by Marvin Heiferman
Disquiet illuminates the ways in which the outside world infiltrates and colors the events of our lives – shaping and molding our moods, actions, hopes and fears. It is a metaphoric journey that examines the first two years in the life my son, weaving intimate family pictures with images of the political and economic turbulence in American society between 2010 and 2012. Relying on a comprehensive visual approach, including environmental portraiture, landscapes, still lifes, and news images, Disquiet creates a multi-layered story of beauty, tenderness and unease.
The book made a number of “Best Books” of 2013 lists, including lists from Photo Eye, PDN and Conscientious. Vince Aletti wrote about the book in Photograph Magazine, and Jorg Colberg of Conscientious called Disquiet ”truly magnificent” and said that it is “as much a personal body of work as it is a piece of social engagement.

DELIBERATE OPERATIONS reflects the EIC’s view of how it conducts considered and sustained operations in space and sets the foundation for developing other fundamentals, tactics, techniques, and procedures. These operations are designed and/or spontaneously realized to reveal or conceal certain features of the environment. This volume serves as a record of those interactions and a guide to other practitioners.
For this document to mean anything, it must come alive in classrooms, homes, workplaces, public spaces and daily practice. Learn from it, adhere to it and continue to help us adapt it to the complex and competitive environments in which we operate.
Victory starts here!
