“I view achitecture as man himself. After all, achitecture is constructed by man. Architecture is a monument to the passion and effort of those who create it. The growth of architecture is derived from the life of its occupants. Considering architecture solely as a machine is cold. As occupants go about their daily lives, their emotions and experiences are stored within the architecture, providing it with warmth and a chance to breathe. As Le Corbusier said, achitecture is a “machine for living.” Man expects to be protected by architecture, whether it be in order to think, to cry, to dance or to sing freely.”

-Excerpt Tamami Iinuma House of Architecture

Published by Post/limArt and designed by Yoshihisa Tanaka, Tamani Iinuma’s House of Architecture presents a photographic approach to the architectural creations by celebrated modernists Le Corbusier and Kunio Mayekawa. Within, Iinuma’s photographs present a visual abstraction of form and subject, where both man as architect and building as structure stand side by side as an interdependent unit in continuous dialogue with its built environ. House of Architecture is an elegant and considered presentation of Iinuma’s imagery, allowing both image and subject further space for engagement within the structural form of the photobook.

The publication includes texts by Thibaut de Ruyter, Yuzuru Tominaga, Tadamoto Oshima and Tamami Iinuma.

All text available in Japanese and English.

This book is an attempt at grasping an important part of Květa Fulierová’s archive, which holds a selection of negatives and printed black and white photographs stowed away in envelopes, marked according to themes and sorted chronologically in chocolate boxes. These photographs pertain to the everyday of a family; of her shared household with Július Koller from the period starting in the eighties, when Květa’s grandsons were born, and ending in their adulthood and the passing away of Július Koller in 2007.

In my series Killing Me Softly (2004), I recreated the suicides of famous woman artists, placing myself as the model. Back then, fifteen years ago, it was the suicide of Sarah Kane which induced me to deal with the theme of suicide. In the most recent photographic work Dospar, Liebespaare (book title Tomb Of Love), i shift the attention to couples who committed suicide together. This time I solely have the position behind the camera and I work with non-professional actors, who were instructed by me, staging the death of ten couples and families.

Stasis is the first publication by artist duo Jessika Thörnqvist and Kim Ramberghaug and is made up of a selection of images from the period between 2011 and 2015. It contains paradoxical moments of change and transition when the world and its things are not given, but appear more ambiguously – in their making or dissolution. Capturing moments when light not only illuminates, but itself becomes presence – as reflection, mist, shimmer, haze, shadow and spectra – this literal photography documents a collection of deflected gazes. Instead of being presented as facts to be accepted, these images could rather be characterized as traces of looking away – looking away at the coloured shadow on the wall, or keeping the head turned to the angle at which the sunspot stays in view.

Performed as negation of habitual patterns of attention and perception, these exercises are done with succinct gestural eloquence so that the most transient perceptual objects are approached in a noncoercive relation. The photos in Stasis convey whole experiences of emphemeral phenomenality where reality is suspended, and replaced by something more immediate and sensuous. As Rei Terada (2009) has described, enforcement of the right to look away coincides with a deeply ethical position. The absence of grammar for some feelings reflects a prevailing, and deeply internalized, unfreedom, the alleviation of which only happen on the edge of the aesthetic.

Reasons to Be Cheerful by Chloë Delanghe deals with the problematic of portraiture and the supposed weight of image making. The book is a fragmented portrait of the artist’s mother Sally Kovacsik. The first chapter, composed of portraits made by Sally’s husband Geert Delanghe, shows her just before and after childbirth. The second chapter, on the contrary, juxtaposes family portraits with objects, rooms, letters and notes. Each image of the book functions as contained gestures, seeking both remoteness and closeness. Moreover, photographs of Welsh castles repeat this conflicting movement. Reasons to be Cheerful is a disorientation of images, a fragmented portrait.

Jon Rafman: Nine Eyes. New Documents.

In The Nine Eyes of Google Street View (2008–), Jon Rafman employs a new approach to the strategy of artistic appropriation, extracting screenshots from Google Street View’s vast online archive to create singular photographs that range from the lyrical to the abject. Selected from the larger collection of images that comprise his ever-expanding project, the images in this volume illuminate in multiple dimensions our mutually constitutive relationship with images and testify to the importance of Nine Eyes in an increasingly codified, image-saturated world.

Rafman’s photographs appear alongside essays on the work by editor Kate Steinmann, Joanne McNeil, Sohrab Mohebbi, and Gabrielle Moser, as well as a text by the artist himself, written in collaboration with Sandra Rafman.

Edited by Kate Steinmann. Designed by The Future.
