Berris Conolly: The Sheffield Photographs That I Hear in My Head

“We propose that what “X” is to “Y” is how “Z” was accomplished. We lack the details of a true oversight and our compunction to rely on discourse written from outside observations can be careless”.     When we reflect on history or movements that occur between eras, it is often hard to perceive the […]

Guy Tillim: Things Come Together

“It is this binary position that implies the view that African colonization created only victims incapable of looking after themselves, impotent against their oppressors and incompetent without.”

Mark Power: Good Morning, America Volume II

  “From there it is all ticker tape and pumpkin pie. From the position in front of its double, it’s the smell of Baltimore’s burning brownstone wires and antiseptic hand sanitizer ironically left on the church pew”.     “That is no longer considered autonomy. That friend is unfettered barbarism”. No stronger words have been […]

Walter Keller: Beruf: Verleger. A Tribute

“So, when we consider respect in the medium, we can limit our discussion by looking at who is contributing to our world and who is not. Publishers by and large are the unsung heroes of the day”.     A friend of mine recently commented on the lack of risk-taking in publishing. I took some […]

Ken Grant: Benny Profane And The Right To Refuse

“The intrepid photographer, whether war photographer, journalist or documentary photographer believes their position to be in accord with the act of producing a record- his or her position to remain neutral so far as to let vultures eat at the doubled over haunches of starving children, to let the blood run from 96.8 to a […]

Jules Spinatsch: Semiautomaticphotography

“Economically speaking, the transactions and values associated with perhaps what we may call “surrogate images” will inform society without society’s intervention into the process”.     The process by which images manifest their own destiny, exchange their own value within the larger network of artificial intelligence and non-human computation is in retrospect, going to be […]

Lena C. Emery: Yuka & The Indeterminate Forest

“When I consider Japanese forests, I am always distracted by Aokigahara and in doing so, I have to place our protagonist there amongst the Durkheimian realities that it ensues”.     It somehow seems pertinent to have left this title too long to review having been caught in the deluge of books landing on my […]

Aaron McElroy: One of These RED Days

“You felt perhaps as though you could finally move that leaden ass sack of yours through the last ten feet of ticker tape parade to come out the other side in a low-tar lifestyle and you did just that”.

Ingvar Kenne: The Ball Interview

“A friend familiar with what I do suggested I have a look at Bachelor & Spinsters Balls – rural gatherings originally designed to overcome distance and loneliness in the bush.”

Redefining Photography | Andreas Gursky

Driven by an interest and insight into ‘the way that the world is constituted’, as well as what he describes as ‘the pure joy of seeing’, Gursky makes photographs that are not just depictions of places or situations, but reflections on the nature of image-making and the limits of human perception. Often taken from a […]

Janet Delaney: Public Life Matters

“The current political narrative that paints immigrants as invaders has been a part of our national conversation for a long time. I want people to be reminded that there is a long and deep history of immigration that forms the basis of our country’s strength.”

Darren Harvey-Regan’s Chalk Muse: Reflections on Time in The Erratics

“The plinth and the chalk are symbiotic vehicles for vision. One bleeds into the other with precision, which given the cleanliness of the image is something to consider-to strip away millions of years of aggregate bio-mass and reduce it and time to the constraints of light and human hand presents a challenge to the eye”
