“Knowing that she was about to die, my aunt said that she would have less regret about leaving this world if she knew that she would still be able to send letters. I feel that my camera acts as an antenna – to receive signals carrying urgent messages from the lost lives and objects that fill the air all around us. I also believe that it is this frantic whispering of death that pushes me to take these photographs, and enables me to continue living…”  – Akiko Takizawa : Artist Statement

“I don’t know much about my philosophy which is still being defined, but to tell the truth I don’t think it really needs to be defined. I mainly use the pinhole camera, a technique that I have used now for over 20 years. The cameras and hand holes are all made by me, this is one of the reasons why I decided to use this technique since it allows me to build my own visual space/photo space in full freedom and to use all the sensitive materials provided by polaroid and fuji, from photo paper to digital. I can also use long exposure times and see life and things from a different point of view, giving me time to think and understand better… The common theme of my photos is often the journey, where the photos can be used as a clipboard memory, hence on returning from my travels I can re-elaborate my ideas and seek common themes to link the images together.” Luca Baldassari

“I was born in Prague, Czech Republic. I started taking photos five years ago and most of all, i like minimalist landscape photography. For my work i use classic medium format camera and the roll film.” – Lukáš Peterec

Luis Mallo’s large-scale urban landscapes (most made in his Brooklyn neighborhood) are cleverly realized perceptual puzzles. In each photo, chicken wire, slats, net or fencing of some sort occupies the picture’s foreground, interrupting but not entirely obscuring our view of the factory, parking lot or construction site beyond. Like a curious passerby, our eye is drawn to the open spaces and tears in these heavy-duty scrims, and Mallo invites us to fill in the entire landscape based on the strips and swatches we see. Both thwarting and redirecting our vision, the work is as perverse as it is engaging.

“Why black and white?” I think it’s because I grew up in a black-and-white world. Television, movies and the news were all in black and white. My heroes were in black and white and even the nation was segregated into black and white. My work’s an extension of the world that I grew up.” Cole Thompson

The image is spirit, matter, time, space, time for eyes. Traces are tests of ourselves and the sign of a culture that lives constantly rhythms that govern memory, history, standards of knowledge.” – M.Giacomelli
