trade fair installation • Wolf-Gordon NeoCon & Ad campaign sequel by karlssonwilker inc.

Four highly motivated sales pros from Gilford Fabrics set up Wolf-Gordon in 1967. Mel Wolf, Bernie Gordon, Tony Prota and Frank Carr knew one thing for sure: vinyl wallpaper was the market of the moment. And they were right. The second generation is now at the helm. At the turn of the 21st century the company focused on high-end design. The licensed design collections by the likes of Laurinda Spear, Karim Rashid and Petra Blaisse. Let’s look at Patty Madden’s 'micro-engraved Textures', they are both full depth and luxury. Wolf-Gordon’s design identity, paired with their stalls at various auf trade fairs, their advertising and sales promotion .... all these speak a clear language – that of an unconditional love of design.

In 2012 Wolf-Gordon initiated a sculpture project at Merchandise Mart, Chicago, during NeoCon®. "That year, and in each subsequent year, the Company has designed, fabricated, and installed diverse, product-clad structures that celebrate the building’s civic space, during the NeoCon trade show." says Wolf-Gordon. And karlssonwilker inc. have been supporting them since the get go.

Hjalti Karlson elaborates: "Following the precedent set in 2012, Wolf-Gordon’s 2013 campaign was based on the sculpture that would appear mid-year at the NeoCon Design Fair. From January until ...

Maydan - Hundred Portraits a photo project by Émeric Lhuisset on the protests in Ukraine, that got the world’s attention

Majdan Nesaleschnosti is the central square of Kiev, capital of Ukraine and became the centre of the country’s protest movement last year. On 21 November 2013 the first demonstrations began, escalating into enduring violence and war. In Febrary French documentary photographer Émeric Lhuisset (1983) travelled to Kiev, where he shot portraits of protestors and asked each of them two questions, asking them to write the answers: “What would you like to see happening now?" and "What do you think will happen?".

In "Maydan – Hundred Portraits" Émeric Lhuisset shows us the faces of the revolution. The protests united thousands of Ukrainians who were fighting against the corruption of their government and the unpopular influence of new Russia by hitting the streets to demonstrate. The situation escalated when protestors were shot by their own authorities and more than 100 people were killed. This event became known as the "Heavenly Hundred". Photographs such as those by Émeric Lhuisset ensure that this won’t be forgotten any time soon.

In the introduction to the book French art critic Adrien Goetz writes: “The strength of these images goes with the force of these words, scribbled by each, but in the name of all”. We have a short video browse of the book, as well as ...

Olympus France presents seven young photographers from École Nationale Supérieure de la Photographie Arles at PHOTO OFF

OLYMPUS France supports new photographic talent and presented two stands worth of up and coming graduates of École Nationale Supérieure de la Photographie Arles. Several of the photographers were there and happy to chat with us.

We spoke with Jonathan Lang from OlympusFRA about the initiative: "Olympus is involved in a unique way in Imaging business: in science, research, healthcare, industry and of course photography. We work deeply since years in order to raise emerging talents within artistic photography. Supporting young photographers is one of the basics of our sponsorship policy. This is why Olympus has a close partnership with the Photography National School. This support does not stop once the studying programme ends, we continue to follow closely these young artists. We do our outmost in order to maintain this support over time. We want our commitment in photography to be full of substance, we want to share our expertise and stimulate creation. It's very important for us to support artists in their success but also when they face difficulties. Sometimes through micro sponsoring: paying rent, a flight ticket, or maybe just by being there to talk and to ensure them that our confidence is still strong. This is the way Olympus is involved: with strength and loyalty.

At Photo Off we have presented seven artists, all coming ...
