I travel the World to witness life on the streets and to document it. For me this is a combination of two passions: Traveling & Photography. It’s not about cameras, settings and locations. It’s about the eye, the moment and having fun. I use an Olympus OM-D for all my photos…” Thomas Leuthard

Kevin Kemner : “Illustro Divum di Nevada” (Photography)

::

Reflecting the spontaneous and temporal quality of the condensation trails, the images are recorded with an iPhone, the camera I almost always have ready at hand. This is in opposition to the larger traditional film formats I prefer for documenting architecture and the built environment. Images have been cropped to a square format. Since the contrails usually happen for a short period around dawn almost every image was shot within sight of my home. K Kemner

Prior to moving to Las Vegas in 1995, the image I had of the southwestern United States was one of an endless landscape of canyons embraced by an equally endless sky of vertical cumuli. Having been raised in the Midwest this was an image formed from afar, largely through the works of iconic figures such as John Ford and Ansel Adams. On arriving here, however, I discovered an entirely other landscape not reflected in the images that I had become familiar with, a landscape of great scale and openness countered by an endlessly vacant sky; the landscape of the Great Basin and Mojave Deserts.

It is the sky of my new home, Nevada that I find most remarkable; often cloudless for weeks the Mojave sky makes one aware of subtleties in the emptiness, observant of things otherwise omitted in the tradition of classic western photography. Such are the condensation trails, threadlike clouds formed by the passage of commercial airliners that appear overhead from late fall to early spring when the air is cold and dry, a linear rather than billowing cloudscape. Having the appearance of being organized, the abstractness of the condensation trails leads one to seek hidden narratives, search for meanings as they are inscribed on and then dissipate in the sky. Introduction – “Illustro Divum di Nevada” Series

This work is part of an ongoing record of the sky above Las Vegas from 2008 to the present.

Cathrin Schulz : “Poolside” Series (Photography)

::

POOLSIDE is a series which is part of a long-term project called AUTHENTI©ITY of AMERICA documenting my vision of America as a German Photographer. Immersing myself in the urban scenery of the United States I perceive its authenticity and diverseness’ and embrace it in soul places. With POOLSIDE I sense a piece of Atlanta’s soul, discovering a part of its culture. The series’ subject matter is a community pool. A location of diverse social environments. It was a collective, public experience to capture it. The energy of the pools, a flat continuation of water obscuring what’s below the surface, was a distinctive emotional atmosphere, sensed intuitively: solitary, still and private. [artist statement]

I spend a lot of time finding the perfect place, the purest energy. I return several times to capture an unusual situation – without staging a setting. The images are captured with one and the same camera, no filter, usually short exposure times, same lens. Through the formal reduction and accentuation of particular colors in my photographs, and by using a reduced visual language, careful choice of motifs and precise cropping of the image, I condense singular moments in their own authenticity. The clarity is intensified further through digital manipulation. By heightening contrasts, colors and saturations, I allow individual details and structures that would otherwise escape our attention to emerge in palpable relief. The black background provides a blank canvas, and isolates the subject from time and distance. The aesthetic qualities of my subject matter are placed in the foreground. ~ [ Cathrin Schulz : Process ]

In October of 2011, a small group of filmmakers, photographers and musicians traveled to the remote countryside of Iceland to document their experience with the landscape, traditions and people encountered along the way. The end result is a series of improvised, collaborative musical vignettes – based on field recordings and visual material collected on location – amidst documentary footage of the journey to a uniquely breathtaking place. The feature-length film and accompanying soundtrack features work by thirteen contemporary classical composers and electronic producers. ~ Extract : Vimeo

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.

Berndnaut Smilde : ‘Nimbus’ Series (Probe – Exhibition)

::

Probe is an exhibition space, with walls no higher then 1,10m and a surface of 6m2. It’s a test lab, an artistic skinner box. Its small and practical dimensions enables artists, to create works on scale, that are unthinkable in real life. The architecture of the space is flexible and wholly subservient to the exhibition: walls can be extended, doors can be removed, a floor made of glass, mirrors or wood, even the lighting situation can be fully controlled. Albeit a physical space, Probe is only accessible on the internet. The registration of the exhibition is the exhibition. Probe’s flexible dimensions proposes questions, as to the nature of space, seeing for example, that Probe can be wholly absorbed by the installation it contains. Exterior or interior, architecture or sculpture become relative notions. Probe can also be used as an exhibition making tool. The height, size and sequence of several works can be researched without having to drill a hole. Sketches used as dummies, scale warps achieved in seconds.

::

Berndnaut is fascinated by anything in between… Corridors and clouds, not yet there
and not yet solid. What if a sculpture were to be nothing but thin air, smoke or scent?
We’d discuss the merits of one cloud over the other or would we just shut up in awe.

Interview with Artist

1. How different was it to work in the space of Probe compared to other exhibition spaces?

I usually make a maquette of the space I’m going to work in. A maquette helps me to control and visualize an idea. It provides a clear overview. Probe itself is a model space, and worked for me in the same way: The manner of working is very direct and functional, and being so close to the subject changes the conception of materials and reality. The space is being emphasized. You create an ideal situation and therefore I think the model can stand for an idea. Working in Probe provides an additional point of view to exhibition making and that is an almost god-like position in which you have control over everything. I think it is similar to why people like model-train-landscaping. It’s having total power.

2. What did you want to create in Probe?

I imagined walking into a museum hall with just empty walls. The place even looked deserted. On the one hand I wanted to create an ominous situation. You could see the cloud as a sign of misfortune. You could also read it as an element out of the Dutch landscape paintings in a physical form in a classical museum hall. At the same time I wanted to make (for once) a very clear image, an almost cliché and cartoon like visualisation of having bad luck.

3. What obstacles did you run into?

The idea I had was going to be an ephemeral work. It would only exist as a photo. I thought this would work very well with the idea of Probe, as the exhibitions only exist in the form of documentation. I didn’t realize there is in fact a very physical aspect about Probe’s presentation. The 9 different perspectives of documentation make it possible for the spectator to wander around the space and create the opportunity of visiting the exhibition. Therefore with every shoot we had to make a new cloud and keep in account approximately the same lighting and position to create the illusion of physically walking through the space.
