Lovisa Ringborg – The Limbo Pictures

Posted by PF at 7:00 ...

Lovisa Ringborg - The Limbo Pictures

“In ‘The Limbo Pictures’, Limbo is used as a metaphor for a middleworld where everything is undefined and judgment is therefore impossible. The characters are isolated in their own situations without the existence of a Before and After, they therefore have a total lack of perspective on the own situation.” – Lovisa Ringborg

Lovisa Ringborg, born 1979 in Linköping, studied at the University of Photography in Göteborg. She lives and works in Göteborg/Sweden.

Friday Quote: Mikhael Subotzky

“For me, photography has become a way of attempting to make sense of the very strange world that I see around me. I don’t ever expect to achieve that understanding, but the fact that I am trying comforts me.”

Kai-Olaf Hesse leads in “City- and Landscape Photography” towards individual visual solutions. In “Photo book or photo series?” Kai-Olaf Hesse argues with forms of presentation and it’s context.

The Neue Schule für Fotografie Berlin offers “The photo book” with Jens Liebchen, an introduction to the process of making a poto book.

Reiner Riedler – Fake Holidays

Posted by PF at 7:00 ...

Reiner Riedler - Fake Holidays

“When wishes are out of reach, simulation is taking over our leisure time and our holidays. Imaginary worlds are created, often under massive technological exertion, in order to offer us experience as reproducible merchandise. Although the quality of these adventures on demand sometimes proves to be rather dubious, the boom does shed light on one thing: the yearnings and dreams underlying people’s daily lives.” – Jens Lindworsky about Reiner Riedlers project ‘Fake Holidays’.

The book “Fake Holiday” is availavble here. Reiner Riedler, born 1968, lives in Vienna.
