through houses, bowling alleys and planetariums,

mountains and Laundromats, etc., entrances

Captain Martin watches
the waves go by.
That’s his entrance

Although the internet offers an almost inexhaustible source for art photography I enjoy a lot to hold a printed magazine in my hands. The quality of the printed images is mostly superior to JPGs from the net. The influence of a professional editorial staff is often advantageous as well.
Here my subjective and certainly incomplete list of magazines that I like. Some of them I read regularly. Others I just flip through from time to time.
PHOTONEWS – großformatige Zeitung für Fotografie: Berichte und Informationen über die Fotoszene.
ProfiFoto – Magazin für professionelle Fotografie: Fototechnik, Portfolios und Infos.
Eyemazing – Magazine devoted to international contemporary photography
foam magazine – International photography
Camera Austria – Fotografie im Kontext zeitgenössischer Kunst.
Source – Magazine for contemporary photography in Britain and Ireland.
Aperture – Creative photography from acclaimed masters to new talent.
Foto 8 – Challenging and inspiring photo photojournalism.
zoom – Art, Creativity, Technology
Blind Spot – Source book of photography-based fine art.

Andreas Gefeller’s series “Soma” (published at Hatje Cantz) shows holiday resorts of Gran Canaria with long exposures by the unnatural light of street lamps and floodlights. Gefeller’s view on these holiday flats, pavements and pools is strangely attractive. “Soma” is Gefeller’s final work at the University of Essen with distinction by professor Bernhard Prinz.
In his series “Supervisions” (published at Hatje Cantz) Gefeller shoots natural parts of the landscape, parking decks and golf course greens, from slightly above the ground and digitally cobbles together his final images from many smaller photos.
In result Andreas Gefeller shows things as they have never been seen before
Andreas Gefeller, born 1970, lives and works in Düsseldorf.

Albrecht Tuebke, born 1971 in Leipzig, studied at the Academy of Visual Arts Leipzig and has been featured in Getty’s “New Photographers 2006“. Albrecht Tübke’s work is focused on portrayal of men in our contemporary society.
For example the series “Citizens” shows passers-by in London. Tuebke afforded them the opportunity to stage themselves in front of his camera. In result Tuebke’s photographs are intimate documents of the interaction between reality and projection.
Albrecht Tuebkes latest book “Portraits” (details at Amazon) gives a fair overview of his work.

Joerg Fauser (1944-1987) was an outstanding German author in the second half of the twentieths century.
In the beginning he wrote weird stuff for the literary underground, influenced by the Beat generation, but later he switched to detective stories to convey his personal view on German reality.
After twenty years now his unfinished novel “Die Tournee” has been published in the Alexander Verlag Berlin. (details at Amazon).

Lana Turner has collapsed!
I was trotting along and suddenly
it started raining and snowing
and you said it was hailing
but hailing hits you on the head
hard so it was really snowing and
raining and I was in such a hurry
to meet you but the traffic
was acting exactly like the sky
and suddenly I see a headline
LANA TURNER HAS COLLAPSED!
there is no snow in Hollywood
there is no rain in California
I have been to lots of parties
and acted perfectly disgraceful
but I never actually collapsed
oh Lana Turner we love you get up
