Shop • Anja Niemis 'Darlene & Me' - or the beautiful schizophrenic relationship we have with ourselves. The exhibition at Little Black Gallery in London and now also available as limited edition photo book 'Photographing in Costume'

The relationship a woman has to herself can be so extremely complex, that it can only be depicted in a double act. In her latest photo series, 'Darlene & Me', Norwegian photographer Anja Niemi tells the story of a fictional woman and her inner self: in conflict, exuberance, in emotional turmoil, having fun or in company. In the idyllic setting of a 1950s dream villa in the California desert. Currently on show in London at Little Black Gallery and in collaboration with her alter egos in book debut 'Photographing in Costume'. GoSee presents the first schizophrenic images.

The artist describes the story herself: "Darlene & Me started with the content of a suitcase from 1959, that left me thinking about the relationship we have with ourselves. The case belonged to a beauty counselor named Darlene and contained makeup samples, brochures and the receipts from her sales. Most of the samples appeared to be untouched, but there were clear traces of her fingers in the two lipstick colors Strawberry Festival and Princess Pink. In August 1960 Darlene sold a jar of Liquid Beauty and one Temptress’s Hairspray, both were to herself. After that she made no more sales. The case left me with a feeling of a woman’s failed attempt at success, and a strong sense of who got in her way. The woman I envisioned became the only character of my next series, ...

music • Marcus PALMQVIST portrays American band 'Future Brown' for the RODEO mag Winter special

The Winter issue of RODEO magazine starts off with a 'Future Brown' special. The members of this American band, captured by Marcus PALMQVIST, grace the cover of the Swedish magazine individually and as a group: Fatima Al-Qadiri, J-Cush, Asma Maroof and Daniel Pineda. We present the beautifully foggy images here on GoSee. Of course the group was in charge of the soundtrack. We recommend: have a listen!

About - Future Brown is the new project from longtime friends Fatima Al Qadiri, Asma Maroof and Daniel Pineda of Nguzunguzu and J-Cush of Lit City Trax. Taking their name from a color that doesn’t exist in nature, Future Brown is steeped in diasporic sounds, forming their own signature takes on urban music. Working in unison on every studio production, their mutual love of global beats and vocalist-driven music forms a fabric derived from their myriad influences.

Their initial single, “Wanna Party,” featured rising Chicago MC Tink and led to a PS1 x Pitchfork performance at the MoMA gallery. Drawing from their Grime ties in the UK, Future Brown hit up friends Prince Rapid, Dirty Danger of Ruff Sqwad and Roachee (formerly of Roll Deep) to feature on “World’s Mine,” the first of two tracks with ...
