Jest
Ilaria Turba :: Jest

From my family photographic archive

from 1870s until now.

This book is full of true lies.

 

Ok, understood so far. Ilaria Turba deals with the archives of her Italian family, with pictures dating from 1870 to the present time. Hmmm, but didn´t we have that already? Yes we had. But we did not have anything like JEST. Miss Turba has not sorted thematically or chronologically, nor is there any story.

More Cars, Clothes and Cabbages
Torsten Schumann :: More Cars, Clothes and Cabbages

The ludicrous story about a black dot and a passport control that starts the book already says a lot about Torsten Schumann and his view of the world. His images even say more. Namely, that life in the so called civilized world is full of curiosities.» read more

Labour disputes in Rheinhausen. On November 26, 1987, the Krupp Stahl AG announced plans to close down the steelmill Rheinhausen in the Ruhr area, Germany.

Bangkok Struggle
Peter Truschner :: Bangkok Struggle

Bangkok. This name is loaded. Sex tourism, night markets, construction and high-tech boom. Not of any interest for Peter Truschner. When he was in Bangkok in 2011 and 2013 for several months, he stayed in the neighborhoods where traders, craftsmen and workers live, people whose lives are dominated by hard, strenuous work without any prospect of prosperity. Work, eat, drink, sleep - often without a solid roof over the head - an endless cycle.» more

Ginostra
Benedetta Großrubatscher :: Ginostra

The question of whether it is possible to photograph the singing of the cicadas, the feeling of a cooling air draft in the midday heat, or the scent of lemons on a damp stone, I would have answered recently with No. Now I know better.» more

In 2012 Thomas Hoepker´s book ›Champ‹ has been published by Peperoni Books. Three editions are completely sold out.

Private Rooms
Fred Hüning :: Private Rooms

Pictures, pictures, pictures - the Internet is packed. But what sense does it make to show the free accessible online images as print on the wall or in books?» more

Sunny
Dagmer Kolatschny :: Sunny

Why is this book named ›Sunny‹? The facades are dirty gray, windows are dust blind and splintered, the staircase needs a new paint, rooms are empty, chairs have toppled or stand unused in the corner and outdoors the weeds grow. Berlin. » more

In Still Air
Dana Stölzgen :: In Still Air

Dana Stölzgen has made a tremendously tender book.

Time seems to stand still in the landscape shots, close ups and interiors exactly as in the portraits of young girls, adult and old women.» more

System
Jens Liebchen :: System

Jens Liebchen's book ›System‹ is a delight with a false bottom. The pictures show a magical winter wonderland, a deserted, pristine snowy landscape with beautifully sprouted trees, that emerge, individually or in groups, filigree, snow-covered and delicate green on the branches from the soft white and gray surroundings. A natural spectacle of perfect beauty. So it seems - but it is not that simple.» more

Itoshima
Juliane Eirich :: Itoshima

Juliane Eirich knew Japan already from previous visits, when she returned in the summer of 2011 in order to work here. But this time things were much different. A few months earlier the earthquake had destroyed the Fukushima nuclear power plant. The enthusiasm and curiosity for the foreign country mingled with a subliminal feeling of fear and threat.  » more

History of the Visit
Daniel Reuter :: History of the Visit

The minimalistic aesthetics of this book remind me of a sophisticated piece of electronic music. It´s not the rhythm or the melody that drives the piece forward, it´s the sound that fills the room while layers of the same but offset played patterns generate complexity.  » more

one circle
Fred Hüning :: one circle

Fred Hünings Trilogy of personal works in one book. » more

25 Weeks of Winter
Ekaterina Anokhina :: 25 Weeks of Winter

With only few very different and wonderfully sequenced images, photographed in black and white or color, indoors and outdoors, abstract and concrete, grainy and out of focus or cristall clear, Ekaterina Anokhina creates a powerful poem about the painful separation of two lovers and makes the symptoms of one of the worst diseases palpable.  » more

Post Mortem
Patrik Budenz :: Post Mortem

Today, death has mostly vanished from public perception.

Bottrop-Ebel 76
Michael Wolf :: Bottrop-Ebel 76

Michael Wolf is worldwide known for his work about ›life in cities‹ and some of the most significant series have already been published in books: ›Tokyo Compression‹, ›Hong Kong Inside Outside‹, ›A Series of Unfortunate Events‹ to mention a few.

And now ›Bottrop-Ebel 76‹ which is quite a different story. As a student Michael Wolf has photographed the series in 1976 in the small coal-mining village in the Ruhr-District, Germany and submitted it for the exam to his teacher Otto Steinert at the Folkwangschule in Essen - at that time as a classical social documentation sorted by categories such as ›building types‹, ›working population‹, ›youngsters‹ or ›festivities and associations‹. Now with the distance of more than 35 years the work has been looked through carefully again and put together for the book in a much more free manner.» more

Tokyo Compression Three
Michael Wolf :: Tokyo Compression Three

The third edition of the photobook classic.

With "Tokyo Compression" Michael Wolf struck a nerve.

The first two editions of this book are sold out. » more

Rented Rooms
Torben Höke :: Rented Rooms

Torben Höke travelled for three months through India. He sat in buses and trains, sometimes for as long as 35 hours a stretch. He rambled from Calcutta to Varanasi to Bangalore further in the South and then back to Calcutta again. He saw poverty and wealth, Rolls Royces and rickshaws, splendid temples and the hippies of Goa, overcrowded trains on their way to the mega-metropolis of Mumbai and buses that teeter on rocky slopes as they travel through the dusty hinterland. In short, he saw much of the contradictory beauty and sprawling size of India, yet there is nothing of this in his pictures. » more

Am Boden
Denis Brudna :: Am Boden

He does not really like New Year`s Eve, says Denis Brudna. Not the programmed party mood, not the fireworks, after which you can set the clock and, actually, not what is left from all the drinking, popping, being merry. The garbage.?? Actually.?? » more

Champ
Thomas Hoepker :: Champ

Ali was the greatest. A great sportsman, a controversial thinker, who, with his appearances in and outside the ring enthralled people but also offended many. A polarizing figure, unforgotten until now. Thomas Hoepker had the opportunity to spend time with Cassius Clay aka Muhammad Ali and take photographs » more

Tumulus
Roger Eberhard / James Nizam :: Tumulus

Dark green and brown tones prevail in these images. Untouched undergrowth, interspersed with moss and ferns. Rainforest. And yet people have left traces. Crumbling into decay, wood huts are to be seen in some pictures, more or less shaped piles of planks, beams and wedges on others. Mysterious remains of bygone bustle already overlaid and penetrated by the returning nature, photographed rich in detail but inexplicable. An idea of eternity is blowing through these images.» more

Rodina
Irina Ruppert :: Rodina

The desire for security and belonging is one of the dominant feelings. Everyone is longing for home, but when childhood is gone, one finds it only and mostly unexpectedly in the memory, it does not matter if one stayed or left. Irina Ruppert came from Kazakhstan to Germany with her family at the age of seven. Now, decades later, she is drawn towards the east. Instinctively, over and over again. Because of the memory – or the idea of it. » more

Lost in Time
Marc Theis :: Lost in Time

Not another industrial ruin, one is tempted to say. But this time the situation is different, because in the images, which Marc Theis has taken on the abandoned Continental-site in Hannover, the different time levels interlace to a peculiar dialogue of generations. » more

Die Deutschen Vietnamesen
Stefan Canham/Nguyen Phuong-Dan :: Die Deutschen Vietnamesen

Germany and Vietnam are connected by a special history. Both countries were separated for a long time, both are reunited again nowadays. In different epochs after World War II, there have been migration shifts from Vietnam to Germany for various reasons. In an artistic-photographic manner, the book deals with the present life situation and everyday life of those Viet Kieu – the foreign Vietnamese. They all brought a piece of Germany to Vietnam and preserve the long-time relationship to Germany on the most different levels. » more

Tokyo Compression Revisited
Michael Wolf :: Tokyo Compression Revisited

With "Tokyo Compression" Michael Wolf struck a nerve. His portraits of people who are on their way in the Tokyo subway, constrained between glass, steel and fellow travelers, have won many awards and were shown in exhibitions around the globe. The first edition of this book was sold out after a few weeks. And the topic kept haunting Michael Wolf as well. He returned to Tokyo in order to immerse in the subsurface insanity once again and this time even deeper. Now with "Tokyo Compression Revisited" the second, completely revised edition of the classic is published, with many so far unreleased images and an entirely new "hidden track" at the end of the book. » more

Real Fake Art
Michael Wolf :: Real Fake Art

Strange, this is how these pictures appear at first sight. In front of typical Chinese urban backdrops young Chinese men and women present oil paintings by American and European artists from different epochs. Rembrandt, Van Gogh, Andy Warhol, Ed Ruscha, even photographs by Lee Friedlander, William Eggleston, Bernd and Hilla Becher or August Sander can be found among the works. What stands behind all this?» more

Quæstiones medico-legales
Patrik Budenz :: Quæstiones medico-legales

Every evening TV-shows like CSI, Crossing Jordan or Quincy show legal medical experts at work and the field of forensics also have long since entered the German crime series. But the medical image of forensic medicine has only little in common with reality. In fact, only few people have realistic ideas of how things work in the autopsy hall or the forensic laboratories and what else belongs to the legal medical’s everyday life. The photographer Patrik Budenz wanted to find out more. On the basis of the medial image, he accompanied the forensic medicals during their work at the site of crime, in the section room, in the laboratory and at their desk. » more

Autonome Bilder
Amin El Dib :: Autonome Bilder

Amin El Dib makes art with photography and you have to take this literally: For him, the medium is nothing more and nothing less than the material, whose exploration defines his oeuvre. What unites him with the artists of all time periods and media, is the radicalness of his approach; from basic considerations about the materiality and mediality of photography he defines the limits, which he exceeds – especially in order to know where they are.

Toyko Compression
Michael Wolf :: Tokyo Compression

Michael Wolf's latest pictures have also been generated in a big city: Tokyo. But this time Tokyo’s architecture is not the topic. Michael Wolf’s “Tokyo Compression” focuses on the craziness of Tokyo’s underground system. For his shots he has chosen a location which relentlessly provides his camera with new pictures minute per minute.» more

Clackastigmat 6.0
Oliver Möst :: Clackastigmat 6.0

Oliver Möst is a spectacles wearer. He is shortsighted, without cut glasses in front of his eyes he sees everything blurred – and that badly. Primarily because of that, he is bothered by the question, in how far the things he sees equal the things others see, with or without spectacles. Because the world does not provide pictures, we create them ourselves.

Portraits from above. Fotografien von Stefan Canham, Architekturzeichnungen von Rufina Wu
Rufina Wu, Stefan Canham :: Portraits from above - Hong Kong's informal rooftop communities

Self-built, informal settlements on the roofs of high-rise buildings are an integral part of Hong Kong’s urban landscape. The rise of rooftop communities is closely linked to the migration history from Chinese Mainland to Hong Kong. With each of China’s tumultuous political movements in the 20th century, like the Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolution, there was a corresponding wave of Mainland Chinese migrating to Hong Kong.

as yet unseen interior views of industrial production.» more
