Photographer Jean Gaumy invites us to discover another facet of his work on ports, which he has come to know very well over time, a set of polaroïds with poetic views of industrial zones of ‘Le Havre’ docks.

Born in 1968, Kanagawa, Japan. Started to take pictures at the age of 24, influenced by the work of Sebastiao Salgado. The first exhibition titled “Futashika-na-Chizu” was held at Ginza Kodak Photo-salon, Tokyo, in 1999. Since then, his work has appeared in many publications in Japan. This year Ogawa won the prestigious Newcomer’s Award from the Photographic Society of Japan for his Slowly Down the River work, from which a couple of these come. The work centers around the construction of the Three Gorges Dam in China, and the profound changes wrought by this massive development. Book

Takanashi was one of the founding members of the short-lived avant-garde group Provoke, known for their grainy, blurry black and white aesthetic, and those pictures, like that of the other “Provoke” artists of the time, were grainy in the extreme, poised between carefree and careless, and without any focus. In contrast to the “Tokyoites” photos, the images were generally long distant scenes, landscapes in a way. The angles are skewed, sharpness definitely a bourgeois concept. You got the feeling they were taken out in the country, from speeding cars, no doubt traveling “towards the city”. X

We all may share the same sensual image of the environment. What we perceive, feel, and
reflect upon, however, may be as unique as every single person… ~ Charlotte Thoemmes

Natural environments and urbanized areas inspire my images, in which I present questions that range from identity to mortality. In my imagery, I attempt to explore places where a dialog emerges between the inner world of people and the environment . There I intuitively create my dream-like visions, make the unseen apparent, paint with light and shadow. In my images I’m not trying to frame my own subjective construction of reality, but rather try to animate the recipient to question their own perception. I want my images to provide a space where the viewers can project their own associations.

Experimental working techniques, either in-camera or in the darkroom often lead me to push the boundaries of photography. I create images with multiple exposures and selective haziness to capture feelings of loss and transformation through time. By painting on the light-sensitive paper or directly on the negative I create additional layers that were unseen by my eye, but felt emotionally. Photography provides possibilities to capture memories of the physical and the emotional state of people and places.

Azurebumble : ‘AI : Series’ (Photography Book)

::

::

Recently, I’ve curated a number of image series by photographers from ‘Flickr’ on my blog ‘Aesthetic Investigations’. Subsequently, I thought it would be interesting to document these works in a book. Therefore, i’ve arranged a collection of ’39’ abstract and minimal photographic series by these ’32’ artists. A selection of pages from the book can be viewed below, a full book preview can be seen: HERE

Thank you to everyone who contributed their images to this project.
