Shop • GoSee loves... Attila Szüc's 'Specters and Experiments' - surrealistic scenarios and melancholic dream sequences in oil

18.01.2017 • Hatje Cantz presents with Attila Szüc's 'Specters and Experiments' the extensive oeuvre of the Hungarian master of the uncanny (*1967 in Miskolc). Szűcs, who is among Hungary's most important contemporary painters, works with old newspaper clippings, postcards, photographs, and film stills, adding new meaning to these traces of the collective memory in his works.

Besides issues concerning the culture of remembrance and memory research, the tendencies of East and Central European painting and the artist’s early experiences with totalitarianism have influenced his art. The incursion of the uncanny into the familiar manifests in the large oil paintings: ghostly, absent protagonists; peculiar furniture; and everyday objects stand isolated in deserted spaces, melancholic in their lack of relationship to anything else. The masterful use of light and shadow, in combination with unexpectedly harsh colors, reinforces the surrealistic impression of these scenes. Dream and memory dissolve into each other, creating a fascinating state of suspension in Szűcs' s visual...

Shop • FRED HERZOG 'REALITY IN COLOR' – the pioneer of color photography uses modern colors to tell stories from the streets in the 50s to the 80s. An illustrated book with previously unreleased photo material at Hatje Cantz

11.01.2017 • Hatje Cantz presents a new FRED HERZOG monograph with more than 230 photos, the majority of which have never before been reproduced, and the hitherto most comprehensive publication on the oeuvre of this significant photographer, who emigrated from Germany to Canada.

Fred Herzog (*1930) is known for his unusual use of color in the fifties and sixties, a time when art photography was almost exclusively associated with black and white imagery. The Canadian photographer worked almost exclusively with Kodachrome slide film for over 50 years, and only in the past decade has technology allowed him to make archival pigment prints that match the exceptional color and intensity of the Kodachrome slide. In this respect, his photographs can be seen as a pre-figuration of the New Color photographers of the seventies

“I imagined how I might have to show people fifty or a hundred years later what the city used to look like,” the photographer tells us.

FRED HERZOG - MODERN COLOR
Texts by David Campany, Hans-Michael Koetzle, Jeff Wall
2016. Approx. 320 pp., approx. 230 ills. ,...

Shop • Where and how do cars sleep in Los Angeles? Edition Lammerhuber presents 'Sleeping Cars' by reportage photographer Gerd Ludwig

06.01.2017 • Gerd Ludwig :"There are more than seven million registered vehicles in Los Angeles County, California/USA. Images of traffic jams are omnipresent. But where do all those cars go to rest? These photographs examine where LA cars are spending their nights. In middle-class neighborhoods people often have 1-2 car garages but rather use them for storage. So cars are left on the streets to park overnight, often getting covered during holidays, or when their owners are out of town. The series shows cars that have a presence. They command their space. They are mostly loners and shy away from being too close to others. Many sleep in covers, wearing them like nightgowns, though some sleep in the nude. Some take daytime naps, a few lucky ones sleep in pairs."

GERD LUDWIG has been working for National Geographic for 25 years. His focus on environmental issues and the socio-economic changes following the dissolution of the Soviet Union after the end of the Cold War. Ludwig's photos are exhibited worldwide in exhibitions and have received awards, including the Lucie Award as "International...
