Marco Bohr – No Ball Games

Marco Bohr - No Ball Games

“This juxtaposition of imagery is a parallel to the sociological contrast I hope to have captured in these children’s lives. With the title ‘No Ball Games’ I am referring to an omnipresent plaque commonly found in the estates forbidding one of the last things that are left to do. Perhaps unconsciously, the ‘Game’ therefore turns into a form of resistance. The ambiguity of the photographs – and more importantly the ambiguity of their lives – is an honestly meant invitation into a world full of paradoxes and uncertainty.” – Marco Bohr about ‘No Ball Games’

Alana Celii - Odd Sympathy

“I feel that within all my works the themes that tie them together are archiving, memory, beauty, and Americana. To a degree, all of my projects have been a variation on a theme.” – Alana Celii

Phillip Toledano - Bankrupt

“At the beginning of 2001, I began taking pictures of recently abandoned offices, and the things people had left behind.
This project was more than photography for me. It was economic archaeology. There was something very strange about walking into a recently abandoned office. The heavy, Pompeii-like stillness, punctuated by the occasional sound of the air-conditioning, turning itself on.” – Phillip Toledano about his series ‘Bankrupt’

Friday Quote: Matt Stuart

Posted by (PF) at 7:00 ...

“People say street photography is somehow old-fashioned and cliched, but, if that’s the case, so is portraiture or sports photography; you might even say so is photography itself. Sure, we’re recording the everyday world in much the same way that street photographers have always done, but times change and things move on, and street photography is a record of that at ground level. That is why it is so important to resist calls for it to be banned or controlled.” – Matt Stuart

“The photographs describe two views of a contemporary landscape — one is from a Romantic 19th century tradition where the grandness of the land is cherished; the other confronts modern spaces that at times seem completely incapable of living up to a standard set by Western explorers.” – Mike Reinders

Alex Leme - Literary Ghosts

I always had a heart for public libraries and understood them as a place of shelter and a treasure of knowledge. So it is not remarkable that I really like Alex Leme’s series “Literary Ghosts” about these wonderful places.

Paul Kranzler - Land Jugend

The series “Land Jugend” of the Austrian photographer Paul Kranzler shows amazingly well why most of us, who came from a small town, went on to bigger cities.
