Jeff Wall









Influential photographer Jeff Wall makes large-scale color images that seem to capture people engaged in everyday life, but are in fact largely staged. Interested in the filmmaking of the postwar era, particularly the unconventional narrative structures of Neo-Realism, his best known work involves constructing elaborate mis-en-scènes, which he photographs and then displays in wall-mounted lightboxes. “I wanted to exaggerate the artificial aspect of my work as a way to create a distance from the dominant context of reportage, the legacy of Robert Frank and the others,” Wall explains. “I saw something else in photography, something to do with scale, with color and with construction, which might be valid along with the more established values that had come down from the 19th century and had been extended by the great photographers of the 20th century.” Wall’s practice is varied, and for many years has also incorporated smaller, documentary photographs and, since 1997, black-and-white pictures.

Martin Parr on Oxford







From Vice:

Martin Parr's new book both confirms and challenges the many preconceptions about one of Britain's most famous institutions, the University of Oxford. A "training camp" for the nation's leaders, Oxford embodies all the contradictions and oddities of British society at large, according to Parr.

Oxford by Martin Parr, with an afterword by Simon Winchester, is released on the 7th of September, 2017 by Oxford University Press, and a selection of the work will be on display at the Weston Library, Oxford, as part of Photo Oxford 2017, from the 8th of September to the 22nd of October.

Lars Stieger - Falésias









Growing up by the sea and during his studies as a photographer on the Antarctic expedition ANT-XXIII/9 Lars has developed a close relationship with the ocean and his endless horizon. Since then he is trying to regularly photograph extraordinary landscapes confronting the viewer with the force of nature and the stark contrast to the everyday urban life. Moreover Lars photographic work is inspired by science fiction topics or motifs such as the feeling of abandonment and unfamiliar desolate environments. He is looking for structures that stand out from their surroundings as strange or unnatural.

Kyle Thompson was born in Chicago on January 11th, 1992. He began taking photographs at the age of nineteen after finding interest in nearby abandoned houses. His work is mostly composed of self portraits, often taking place in empty forests and abandoned homes.

His work encapsulates the ephemeral narrative, a nonexistent story line that only lives for a split moment.  These images show the collapse of narrative, as there is no defined story line with a beginning and end; instead, these images create a loop.  This fleeting moment lives on in a constant unchanging state.  By diverting the view of the face, the images become more ambiguous, the viewer is no longer able to tie a defined story line to the image.  

He is currently based in Portland, OR

A Little Life


Peter Hujar, Orgasmic Man, 1969

Esta fotografia de Peter Hujar está na capa de um dos meus livros favoritos dos últimos anos, "A Little Life", de Hanya Yanagihara, de 2015. Ainda está por traduzir, creio.


From The Washington Post:

As a critic, I find myself in a strange position with Hanya Yanagihara’s “A Little Life.” Her doorstopper novel, about the lives of four college roommates who remain life-long friends, is one of the best new books I’ve read this year. And due to its exceptionally graphic depictions of physical abuse, sexual abuse and self-harm, and the way those depictions infect the narrative like a cancer, it’s one of the few pieces of art that I could be convinced deserves a content warning even for adult readers. I want to tell you all to read it. But I would also completely understand and sympathize with people who heard tell of both the greatness and pain of “A Little Life” and decided to let Yanagihara’s considerable achievement pass them by.

Jimmy De Sana






Jimmy De Sana (November 12, 1949 – July 27, 1990) was an American artist, and a key figure in the East Village punk art scene of the 1970s and 1980s. De Sana's photography has been described as "anti-art" in its approach to capturing images of the human body, in a manner ranging from "savagely explicit to purely symbolic". William S. Burroughs wrote the introduction to his collection of photographs Submission which was self-published in 1980.
