Nan Goldin: The Other becomes The One

“Instead of seeing Goldin’s re-edit as encompassing the visibility of any specific group, it invites reconsideration in an approach delinking the narrative of otherness towards what I see as a photographic project of genuine care.”

Guillaume Simoneau: All Lies Beneath A Placid Surface

“Simoneau and his use of the plastic documentary, those metaphorical images that punctuate his book in their sublime manifestations of beautifully drawn and dark passages of smoke rolling across the tree line and the sickly arachnid all but giving up on the stalk of a flowering plant of unknown taxonomy lend to the feel of […]

Pier Paolo Pasolini: Bodies and Places, Dis-articulation and Distance

Voyeuristic, atavistic, altruistic”.

Gordon Parks: Collected Works of an Alien Afloat In Genius

” Gordon Parks was first described to me as a renaissance man for his enduring and unfailing talent behind a lens.

Alessandro Calabrese: A Failed Entertainment
