“The discos of Lithuania were once Soviet offices, detention centers, weapons storage, rare Lithuanian mushroom-packing plants… who knows? One can dream of their former incarnations and feel that, no matter how grim, they are being violently shoved into history by the hungry young bodies Andrew photographs.”

FÁBRICA. Daniel Blaufuks. Pierre von Kleist Editions.

“One cannot walk through an assembly factory
and not feel that one is in Hell.” – W.H. Auden

‘Fábrica’, a new book and film by photographer Daniel Blaufuks, is a collection of images composed into an expanded scenery of memory, a walk through the abandoned spaces of one of the largest factories in Europe in an once flourishing industrial region, that never recovered from the loss of the textile market to the Chinese exports.

Blaufuks worked the book and the film (which comes with this edition) as a documental piece, collecting different kinds of memories, crossing old photographs, manuscripts and objects with images of the present state of the building interiors and surroundings.

The result is a reflection not only on the idea of a ‘factory’ in itself, most generic and abstract, but also about forgetting and abandonment, thus creating a significant memento about labor and the disappearance of the working class in Europe in the last century, which is one of the reasons for the present crisis in the region.

* This title was co-published with Guimarães 2012.

Rien. André Cepeda. Pierre von Kleist Editions

Dark alleys, blocks of cement, tired naked bodies, strings that lead to nowhere, abandoned tubes.
Rien, the new André Cepeda book, is an immersive experience.
Page after page we are led into a void where all things seem to have lost their name, creating a restless and suspended time. More than looking at physical spaces, we feel as if in an endless present tense. There is Emptiness, but a desired one.
Cepeda makes the beautiful more white than black large format photographs look spontaneous and free.

A book about the process of photographing, about film.
A desire to touch and enlighten all things around us.

André Cepeda (b. Coimbra, 1976) Lives and works in Porto, Portugal.

Someone Loves Someone Else. Harry Mitchell. fourteen-nineteen

Cairo, April 2012

“The ‘street’ in Cairo is symbolic, now almost a byword used to describe the general mood of the politically active, a barometer for a movement’s next motion. This mood became my point of departure, whilst I looked to the city – how it inhaled and paused, before the next exhalation.”

Ma Almeno Ci Sei Tu Amore Mio – But At Least You Are Here My Love. Nico Baumgarten.

Scampia is a neighborhood in the outskirts of Naples and is mainly known as a stronghold of the Camorra mafia. Most stories about Scampia deal with gangsters or junkies.
In “ma almeno ci sei tu amore mio” (but at least you are here my love) I show the everyday life of those, who don’t have anything to do with all this. It’s a tough reality for them: Finding work is an almost impossible task, many of the flats are contaminated with asbestos and it’s hard to convince the own children of the fact that it’s not cool to work for the mafia.
In such a rough environment havens – even only mental ones – have a special significance. Religion and music play an important role, but love seems to be more meaningful than anything else. At least this is what the writings on the walls of this neighborhood testify, and which are the leitmotiv of this book.
