Alexandra Serrano – Between Finger and Thumb

Alexandra Serrano - Between Finger and Thumb

Between a finger and a thumb lies the corner of our world, the intimate space of our being.
The distance with which we measure the substance of our past. Years of entanglement made up of scattered oddments and embellished anecdotes. Tales of broken threads which we desperately hold on to, for they are our only support, the strings on which we hang, our safety net.
In the mist of our fragmented childhood, home becomes the only thing that binds it together, a common ground to which we may anchor our fleeting souvenirs. – Alexandra Serrano

Corinne Silva - Badlands

“Increasingly visible in the Almerian landscape is plastic, innovatively used and reused. In the wilderness beyond the synthetic architectural fortresses of industry and leisure lie the improvised dwellings of African migrant workers, made from salvaged plastic. In ‘Badlands’ I use plastic to examine the authentic and artificial as well as product and waste, and by extension, wasted humans.” – Corinne Silva

Andy Sewell - The Heath

“Hampstead Heath was once part of the countryside surrounding London and is now a green fragment deep within the urban landscape. It is a place of ancient trees, tall grass and thickets dense enough to get lost in – if only briefly. I go to the Heath to be somewhere that feels natural, yet I know this is no pathless wood. The Heath is as managed as any other part of London but managed to feel wild.” – Andy Sewell

Klaus Pichler – One Third

Klaus Pichler - One Third

Klaus Pichler uses classic still lifes to illustrate in brilliant images a serious problem of our western society: wastage of food. A wonderful example that concerned photography can be disturbing, beautiful and thoughtful at the same time.

“The series ‘One Third’ describes the connection between individual wastage of food and globalized food production. Rotting food, arranged into elaborate still lifes, portrays an abstract picture of the wastage of food whilst the accompanying texts take a more in-depth look at the roots of the issue.” – Klaus Pichler

Fiona Essex - We Are Here

“‘We are here is a photographic series that seeks to portray the diversity of people taking part in Marches, Protests and at the recent Occupy Assemblies. This work hopes to give evidence of how people can come together peacefully by focusing on unspectacular yet engaged moments at these gatherings of people.” – Fiona Essex

Augustin Rebetez - Mervelier

I’m not sure if Augustin Rebetez’ wild image mixtures always work, but they create a crescendo of collisions that produce, at best, something new.

Anna Dasovic’ use of historical images and documents in her project “Vredenhof 1939-1945″ looks really interesting.

“World War II left deep scars in the Dutch collective psyche. Physical proof, which shapes the memory of this, can be found in countless places. One of these places is the Wadden Island Schiermonnikoog, a small island just of the north coast of Holland.”
