Evzen Sobek - Life in Blue

“The project looks at leisure-time activities carried out for decades by groups of people on the banks of that reservoir in the south-eastern tip of the Czech Republic, in a specific environment, where they have decided to set up their second home with bizarre architectural artefacts or just came to spend their holiday in the local recreation facility of Merkur campsite.” – Evzen Sobek about ‘Life in Blue’

“It’s fascinating how you can treasure thoughts and opinions in an image. It’s always interesting to see how I develop and how images can change – photography is a constant process for me and that’s why it never gets boring.” – Jana Voigt

Jana Voigt mixes portraits with indoor and landscape photography. Her work deals with the vagueness of a new arrival when the familiarity with the environment is still missing and everything seems somehow equal.

Jana Voigt is currently studying photography at the HGB Leipzig. An interview with her is available here.

Robert Knoth’s haunting images of Chernobyl and elsewhere bring the often repressed consequences of nuclear hubris back to our consciousness.

Elise Boularan - Lapsus Prompta

The series “Lapsus Prompta” by the French photographer Elise Boularan remains pleasantly uncertain.

“I like to do images full of ellipses and silences, falling to pieces until the enigma. Using indefatigably the ambiguity, telling an intimacy.”

On the occasion of Ruhr 2010, Essen as European Capital of Culture, the Savings Banks Finance Group has pooled some money and asked Thomas Weski to accomplish something special for the Ruhr area.

For the exhibition “Ruhr Views”, Thomas Weski invited the photographers Hilla Becher, Laurenz Berges, Joachim Brohm, Hans-Peter Feldmann, Andreas Gursky, Jitka Hanzlová, Candida Höfer, Matthias Koch, Elisabeth Neudörfl, Jörg Sasse and Thomas Struth to provide their distinct view on today’s Ruhr area.

I miss some young guns in this heavy weight line-up, but anyway doubtless a must see of the season. “Ruhr Views” is on display from 24th April to 24th September 2010 in the SANAA building in Essen.

Christophe Agou – White Light

Christophe Agou - White Light

Christophe Agou’s ongoing series “White Light” is a powerful and joyful example for a subjective black and white photography.

“The White Light series comes from personal experiences and sensations of ecstasy, awareness and love for life. This is a project that is both, personal and documentary, in which the intuitive, the imaginative, light and existence are essential components” – Christophe Agou about ‘White Light’
