Art • 'Glamour & Innocence' - Monika Mohr Gallery Hamburg presents Liesje Reyskens's dangerously colorful world of photography

02.09.2015 • Reality? Phantasy? Where do we draw the line? According to Belgian photographer Liesje Reyskens – we may never know. The Genk Design Academy graduate presents her multicolored works through the end of September at Hamburg's Monika Mohr gallery – seductive yet full of humor, but also mysterious and deeply abysmal. Sometimes a single blink of the eye and brief focus on the motif is enough, ... and suddenly, behind the suger-coated wall, a much bitter reality appears than was anticipated at first, trustful sight; we have the photos for you on GoSee.

'Glamour & Innocence' - Liesje Reyskens . Monika Mohr Gallery, Hamburg . Through 29 September . Open Tuesday through Friday from 12am to 18pm .

Art • Philip KARLBERG presents his personal photo project 'Debris' on GoSee - prints are on sale for a good cause in the MINK MGMT. Art Shop

02.09.2015 • “I love being out in the nature. It makes me feel good. Unfortunately, even at the most remote places, I often find a lot of litter and waste. One day, I came up with the idea to not only collect the litter I find, but to also make it into an art project. After months of collecting, I finally completed the project and shot these three still lifes in my studio. I decided to call it 'Debris'. If you would like to buy prints of any of these images, all profit will be donated to The Swedish Society for Nature Conservation," photographer Philip KARLBERG tells GoSee. Where can you buy them? Just drop by the MINK MGMT. Art Shop; all prints are available for purchase there.

Art • GoSee loves...Wessel + O'Connor Fine Art presents David Graham and his picture of America: 'colorful, sometimes surreal and often bizarre'

20.08.2015 • Wessel + O'Connor Fine Art is pleased to present the first exhibition with the work of noted photographer David Graham. In the course of his 30 year career, David Graham's work has captured impressions from the very unique country America, where the 'Land of the Free' slogan is behind nearly every artistic expression. David has tirelessly traveled the US to capture the sometimes surreal, often bizarre but also quite colorful scenery. Elvis, Betty Davis, George Washington... He met them all along the way but also encountered the ordinary insanity of daily life – which is very photogenically depicted in his photos and , at the same time, suspiciously normal.

David Graham lives in Newtown, PA. He received a BA from The University of the Arts in Philadelphia and his MFA in Photography from the Tyler School of Art. He studied under Ray Metzker and was mentored by neighbor, Emmet Gowin. He has taught at Moore College of Art and is currently on the faculty at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia. His work is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art; the San Francisco...

Art • Hurry up! The graphical beauty of Los Angeles and New York from a bird's eye view still on through 22 August - Jeffrey Milsteins 'NY LA' in the Benrubi Gallery, NYC

19.08.2015 • Some say that the best perspective is from above because it is easier to oversee everything. The views of New York and Los Angeles, which Jeffrey Milstein photographed from an altitude of 1,000 - 2,000 feet, open completely new perspectives and photographic formations that go beyond a mere overview. The urban streetscape emerges from the bird's eye view into elegant graphical patterns and fine-lined grids due to its strictly plane structure. As if the artist was catapulted above his daily routine to stop and perceive the beauty of hgis surroundings in a totally new way. Benrubi Gallery is showing Jeffrey Milsteins 'NY LA' through 22 August, 2015, in New York.

Art • Jacob Aue Sobol - 'Arrivals and Departures'. An investigative journey on the Trans-Sibirian Railway. Exhibition at Yossi Milo Gallery, New York

18.08.2015 • Between 2012 and 2014, Jacob Aue Sobol took what is for many a dream trip on the Trans-Siberian Railway. Past Moscow, the Mongolian capital of Ulaanbaatar, Beijing and the rural areas and barren countryside. He photographed the ever-changing landscape from his window seat and documented his encounters with the inhabitants of the places where he left the train. The consistently black & white photographs paint a richly contrasted, personal and very honest picture of a travel route which is far too often overly romanticized. The Danish artist describes his travels as "An Investigation of the emotional states did control us, inspire us, and keep us moving." Through 28 August, 2015, almost 60 prints follow the most impressive moments of the journey at New York's Yossi Milo Gallery. 'Arrivals and Departures'.

The Danish artist describes his travels on the Trans-Siberian Railway as "An Investigation of the emotional states did control us, inspire us, and keep us moving." And also far away from his home, Jacob Aue Sobol captures life's main ingredients: people, places and their...

Art • 'Newton. Horvat. Brodziak.' on display until the beginning of November at the Helmut Newton foundation. A creative reason to visit Berlin in Fall 2015

13.08.2015 • Since the beginning of June, 2015, the Helmut Newton Foundation is presenting the three-part exhibition 'Newton. Horvat. Brodziak'. In previous years, 2006 and 2007, the display of Helmut Newton's work was augmented by that of famous colleagues, each time in a show featuring a combination of three photographers. The format for such displays derives from the German-Australian photographer himself when he established the foundation. And in selecting Frank Horvat and Szymon Brodziak, the curators have chosen two photographers whose work oscillates mostly between fashion and portrait photography.

Horvat (b. 1928) is eight years younger than Newton, and, like him, spent decades working for the most prestigious magazines. He has created an equally remarkable, autonomous body of work containing numerous iconic images. In this exhibition he is represented by nearly 200 small-format images from different genres spanning more than six decades, which all stem from his long-running project 'House with 15 Keys'.

The young Polish photographer Szymon Brodziak (b. 1979), recent winner of...

Art • GoSee loves... 'Selections from a Survey' – Todd Hido presents his new series at Casemore Kirkeby in San Francisco

29.07.2015 • Todd Hido: 'Selections from a Survey' is Casemore Kirkeby's first exhibition and celebrated its premiere at Paris Photo L.A. in May, 2015. Casemore Kirkeby is a new galllery project in San Francisco in a joint venture between Julie Casemore and Stefan Kirkeby focused on contemporary photography.

The gallery tells us about the project: "This installation, drawn from Oakland-based Hido's ever-expanding archive, invites viewers to dwell on the images and ideas that have followed him throughout his career, continually finding new manifestations in his work. This selection focuses on Hido's primary model Khrystyna - a tacit partner in his cinematic narratives, and a shape shifter in the nightscapes, interiors, and psychological landscapes that she haunts. The result is a deeply personal collection of imagery, often drawn from Hido's own biography and his childhood home of Kent, Ohio – the place that has guided his sustained inquiry into the darker aspects of American suburban life, investigated through the lens of his own imperfect memory. The selection includes several new, never...
