Michael Slogsnat - Heimatphotographie

In photography the province is often neglected compared to the supposedly more attractive city. Michael Slogsnat’s long-term project “Heimatphotographie” focuses on the little-known region Bordesholm between the cities of Kiel and Neumünster.

The long-term project wants to tell of the political, social, cultural and economic contexts in the region Bordesholm. What is currently visible in the project blog “Heimatphotographie” oscillates between postcard idyll, document and provincial curiosity and whets appetite for more.

Friday Quote: Arthur C. Danto

“The object turns into art by the possibility of its interpretation. Does it not allow interpretation or does not need interpretation, it can not be the subject of art.”

Lay Flat 02: Meta – Now Available!

Lay Flat, founded in January 2009 by Shane Lavalette, brings together emerging and established artists together and is specialized in publications that are just as much art objects as the work featured in their pages.

The current issue “Lay Flat 02: Meta” was edited by Shane Lavalette and Michael Bühler-Rose. It brings together a selection of contemporary artists whose photographs are conceptually engaged with the history, conventions and materiality of the medium itself.

Cat’s Birthday

Posted by (PF) at 7:10 ...

Katzengeburtstag

Stray Cats is not only a U.S. band with a mix of rockabilly, punk and new wave, but also one of the few German blogs on Photography: StrayCats, the weblog of the photographers collective BerlinPhotoWorkshops.

For a year now StrayCats presents its own inspiring sound, mixed with photographers, projects, events and exhibitions. Congratulations!

“Rockabilly went deeper than the blues. He had his own face, his own outfit, his own hair style and a sound that crashed into the feet. Rockabilly was striking, hard and complex. Rockabilly had all the things we liked.” – Brian Setzer
