Jimmy Kets

The quality of the images on the portfolio site of the Belgian photographer Jimmy Kets is pretty mixed. But there are some really nasty views on our everyday life.

“Whether he is an artist or not, the photographer is a joyous sensualist, for the simple reason that the eye traffics in feelings, not in thoughts.”

Walker Evans, 1903 – 1975

Renato Abreu - The Cleaning Ladies

At Renato Abreu’s series “The Cleaning Ladies” I like the selected subject and the decision to avoid largely clichés of portrait and reportage.

Jan Brandes - Im Dunkel leuchten

“The main aspect of this work is the collation of various old and new forms of adoration and their confronting in a series of photos. On these grounds the question of the extent to which they are similar, different or have specialized, how interchangeable or unique they are, shall be highlighted.” – Jan Brandes about ‘Im Dunkel leuchten’

Elinor Carucci’s work, drastic – self-centered – close, is widely known and always worth a look.

Album #2 – Same/Same

Posted by PF at 7:00 ...

Album #2 - Same/Same

Album #2 examines the question of the singularity of photographs. (…) With »Same/Same«, we curated positions of photographic and theoretical works dealing with the found similarity / the conscious doubling / the coincidental identicalness / the admiringly cribbed, copied, replicated / the supposedly similar / the photographed photographed / the hardly different / the questionable original / the revisited / the twin image.

The second issue shows artwork by Claudia Angelmaier / Fleur van Dodewaard / Simone Haug / Sascha Herrmann / Nadine Kolodziey / John MacLean / Falk Messerschmidt / Jarkko Räsänen / Sertan Satan / Björn Siebert / Corinne Vionnet and features interviews with Barbara Probst and Joachim Schmid.”
