Anastasia Markelova – Rehearsal of Death

Anastasia Markelova - Rehearsal of Death

“The theme of death is close to anyone mediating on what is waiting ahead. Contemplating death, desolation, the indifference of beloved and emptiness, the author has posed a question: what will be left after we are gone?”

Anastasia Markelova lives and works in Moscow.

“I buy photo-books like crazy. Lately it seems I get more inspirations from books than from visiting galleries.”

picture perfect @ berg19 in Berlin

Under the title “picture perfect” displays berg19, space for photography, work of Andrea Kroth, Jonas Holthaus, Tim Kubach and Luke Hoffmann until 20th February 2010.

The phrase “picture perfect” is used when suddenly opens up a perfect view. But the photographers approached this term in a more figurative sense. They do not explore classic beauty, but the moment when everything comes together.

Freya Najade – If you are lucky, you get old

Freya Najade - If you are lucky, you get old

“I made the decision to do a project about elderly gays, since I felt nobody really thought of old people as being homosexual. But also in general in my surroundings and every day life old people seemed to be invisible. (…) Having so little knowledge about the elderly, I went out to retirement communities in the U.S. to find out more. (…) To not create just another segregated and enclosed group I eventually decided to open the project up and to focus on both straight and queer seniors.” – Freya Najade

Freya Najade, born 1977 in Germany, studied Photography at the London College of Communication. She lives and works in London.

Inge Stolwijk – De Proeftuin

Posted by PF at 7:00 ...

Inge Stolwijk - De Proeftoin

“The Dutch town Woerden has been statistically established as the Most Average Town in The Netherlands. For this reason Woerden is often chosen as a platform to perform several tests and researches among the citizens, of which the results are carried out throughout the country.
Recently however, things seem to be changing. The town is working hard to build up a new image for itself.

Nowadays, nothing seems to be more important then being a unique and authentic person. But is being average just about being gray and generic?”

Inge Stolwijk, born 1985 in Woeden / Netherlands, studied a Documentary Photography at the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague.

20/20 - Kannst Du es sehen?

Photo: Marco Philippi

 

What about here in 10 years? With this question in mind 12 photography students from the Ruhr area and Berlin explored the homeland of the others.

The results are on display at the Neue Schule für Fotografie in Berlin until 24th February 2010. My personal favorite is “Alter, Alltag, Kulturhauptstadt” by Marco Philippi.

Friday Quote: Nick Turpin

Posted by PF at 7:00 ...

“I go to the busiest, public places to discover something very personal and private. It is an inescapable truth that the resulting photographs are as much about my inner state as they are about the external world they were made in. They are all self-portraits.”
