Le nom qui efface la couleur
Text: Sylvie Durbec
24 × 20 cm. 104 p. Hardback
Translated Description: The series Le nom qui efface la couleur revolves around possible, the possibility of being one thing or another, falling or flying, to stay or disappear … and, in general, the intrinsic freedom that man possesses and places you in a world of contingencies, forcing him to choose between them. The project was carried out in Le Blanc - the place where the color fades - where you can see the cracks in that territory so often forgotten your granite background and their fleeting appearances. Le nom qui efface la couleur is almost an abstraction, a mental state in which to explore the limits of photography, a threshold where attending generating a new kind of place, more vague and ambiguous but also more committed to a land filled with feeling, metaphor and language. The series Le nom qui efface la couleur was made during a residency in Nature Humaine, in the region Centre of France.
Original Publisher’s Description : La serie Le nom qui efface la couleur gira alrededor de lo posible, de la posibilidad de ser una cosa u otra, de caer o volar, de permanecer o desaparecer…, y, en general, de esa libertad intrínseca que posee el hombre y que le coloca en un mundo de contingencias, obligándole a elegir entre una y otra. El proyecto se llevó a cabo en Le Blanc – el lugar en el que se desvanece el color – donde se pueden contemplar los resquicios de ese territorio tan frecuentemente olvidado, su fondo granítico y también sus apariciones más fugaces. Le nom qui efface la couleur es casi una abstracción, un estado mental en el que explorar los límites de la fotografía, un umbral desde donde asistir a la generación de un nuevo tipo de lugar, de carácter más vago y ambiguo pero al mismo tiempo más comprometido con un territorio colmado de sentimiento, metáfora y lenguaje. La serie Le nom qui efface la couleur se realizó en el transcurso de una residencia de artista en Nature Humaine, en la región Centre de Francia. via - http://www.edicionesanomalas.com/?product=le-nom-qui-efface-la-couleur-2

Summary: Overnight Generation is a post-clash reportage over the complex shades that being young adults can assume in the contemporary Sarajevo. A research on a fascinating, complex, and often unknown european capital, plagued by what has been acknowledged as the longest siege in modern history.
It appears to be a common belief that Sarajevo is recovering from its post-war trauma, but is that true? And what happened to the children of the conflict? Unlike other efforts that have been done to explore their lives, Overnight Generation does not aim to illustrate the physical damage done to them during the armed struggle, but rather portrays the character of a more subtle violence: the ordinary drama of a post-war existence; a subtle curse that follows every one of the young citizens who had to hide his or her best years behind the curtain of the conflict, and grow up overnight, while the rest of us were sleeping.
Overnight Generation is a book which intent is not to allocate blame, but rather to portray the efforts of a group of fellows, that sometimes could not have the chance to do things better, but in most of the cases exceeded all the expectations. It is a tribute to Sarajevo and to its young citizens: an insight into the lives of those affected by the war, an analysis on how its consequences have grown into a generational disease.

STATE OF MIND
Dimensions: 287 x 200 mm
Pages: 112 (79 photographs)
Publication date: December 2013
Limited edition of 500 copies
“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.

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.

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
Edition Solitude, Reihe Projektiv
Publisher: Akademie Schloss Solitude
Designed by Gou Dao Niao
8.4 x 5.4”
256 pages, 177 B&W images
1st Edition, 1000 copies
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 Marfa. 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.
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.”

Lack of everything that’s important.
I try to think of the „road.” I can’t. I’m utterly exhausted. I’m only really going because of the weather. The prospect of wind, snow, and my flashes on the beach kept me awake. And also I’m scared of a few days of thinking only about Her, and here I’ll have the Baltic. My Baltic. Instead.
„Swell” is a story of a break-up and of unaccepted loneliness. About going back to the same places and memories that we can’t forget. At first it was supposed to be a documentary project about the Baltic Sea. So a plan was drawn up, the form was thought through, and the places to be visited were marked on the map. The photographs came about during trips together. The last joint photo was taken a little later-and a portrait on a negative ruined by the lab technician. The project no longer mattered, and the outings to the sea were now only an escape from daily life. Over a dozen colour „postcards” have survived from the first trips. They are the beginning of this story. There is no end yet. We’re about half-way.

«Know More» –
by Norbert Bayer,
18,5 cm x 23,7 cm,
Risography print by Ourpress,
1st edition 300 copies,
«Know More» is the name of an artist book by Norbert Bayer. Know What? No More? It reads like a Surrealist novel minus the text, which is to say it does not read like a novel exactly but like a mysterious fictionalization of life, or like an unveiling of the wondrous qualities that life actually has — if you are able to access them. A series of photographs present an odd succession of images that compel one to string them together in a sort of rhyme: plant fronds, feathered metallic ground, the edge of nothingness, the edge of a cornice, a battered coffee table, the people at the party… plants in a window, plants in a market… a curtain curled up with its shadow, two bananas spooning, a pair of shoes with their tongues hanging out. From beginning to end, each image is framed in Masonic mystery by a diamond that seems to zero in on something. But on what? And why? It’s a game Bayer has played himself, and each viewer must play it in turn, uniquely. It will never end the same way twice.
