“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

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.”

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.

Collected: self portrait is a self-published book of found photographs, which capture the presence of their photographer through shadows and reflections. Understood as flawed and imperfect on their own, the images as a collection celebrate an intrusion originally described by Lee Friedlander’s Self-Portrait series.
