Automobile Fairs

Posted by (PF) at 0:10 ...

I’ m not interested in cars. So I never visited an automobile fair. In fact I don’t like cars although I use them occasionally. If possible I prefer to use public transportation.

But the photography of Stefan Abrams, who photographed visitors of automobile fairs in his series “Auto Show”, is absorbing.

Please check the work of the Dutch photographer Jacqueline Hassink as well. She photographed auto fair hostesses in her series “Car Girls”.

Göran Gnaudschun

Posted by (PF) at 15:42 ...

Goeran Gnaudschun, born 1971, studied at the Academy of Visual Arts Leipzig and was a master student of Timm Rautert. He lives and works in Potsdam.

Within the series “Longe – 44 Leningrad” (1994-1996) and “Vorher muesst ihr uns erschießen” (1996-2001) documents Gnaudschun in a subjective style his personal surroundings as a member of a punk band and a squatter in Potsdam.
In “Portraits” (1996-2001) he uses the camera as a specific tool to provoke a reaction in his counterparts. This mode of operation is continued and improved in the series “Reif” (2001-2003) and “Neue Portraits” (work in progress). Goeran Gnaudschuns portfolio is available as PDF here.

“While doing a portrait a fragile state can arise when humans apparently discover themselves. For a short moment it seems to be possible that the inside and the outside forms a unity. It takes place between tension and release, between control and self-abandonment. It is transient and the photography is the only remembrance at it.” – Goeran Gnaudschun

“I see photography as an adventure. I like to discover where my boundaries are and what I can do with each person I met.”

Friday Quote: Franz Kafka

Posted by (PF) at 20:27 ...

You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.

Franz Kafka, 1884 – 1924

Alison Jackson – Confidential

Posted by (PF) at 8:35 ...

I don’t like Paparazzi photos at all, but the faked celebrity shots of the British artist Alison Jackson are a funny thing.

Her work has now been published by Taschen in the book “Confidential“.
