Shop • The image, of an image, of an image ... Sofia Borges – The Swamp, published by Mack Books, wins the First Book Award 2016

23.05.2016 • “Reality as mud as dense as air” reads the spine of Sofia Borges’ book The Swamp, and equally, the series of photographs that she presents is as leaden as it is impenetrable. Spanning a seven-year period, it largely records Borges’ countless visits to natural history museums, zoos, aquariums and research centers, where the artifice of reality became her point of focus. For Borges, displays such as habitat dioramas serve as the ultimate form of representation, where objects have the virtuous task of representing “themselves” – a type, genre or group that is inherently bound to language through layers of history and meaning. As a motionless walrus lies in its plastic Antarctic locale and the beady eye of a fossilized bird catches your glance, what glares back at you from the depths of The Swamp is not the thing itself, but the image, of an image, of an image.

“What I seek are images, which, in their very artifice, are able to present themselves as a problem”, Borges has said. Beyond the comical absurdity of museological spectacles that spawn the living dead, The Swamp takes aim...

Shop • Billy Sullivan – Still, Looking. Works 1969 – 2016. A portrait of the New York underground and art scene in oil (Edition Patrick Frey)

23.05.2016 • Since the early 1970s Billy Sullivan has accompanied New York’s underground, art and fashion scenes with his camera, using the resultant photographic material as templates for oil paintings, pastel drawings and elaborate multi-part slideshow installations. Sullivan shows his friends, family, lovers and muses, as well as the worlds and demimondes in which they move: clubs, ateliers, rumpled hotel rooms, and elegant beach houses. In Sullivan’s imagery, which dispenses with any chronological order, the underground scene, the cultural elite and high society are always very close together, as are surface and abyss, the lust for life and the transience of youth. This distillation of Sullivan’s photographs, paintings and drawings showcases an ongoing dialogue between camera and paintbrush that characterizes his work.

Sullivan’s pictures are intimate, sensual and minutely observed. In his latter-day paintings, moments captured by his camera forty years back look as though they’d taken place only yesterday, defying the passage of time. They are unabatedly existential in their...

Shop • GoSee Tip Otherworldly Lifestyle & Fashion – the avant-garde fashion & style compendium explores new trendsetters and visionaries

13.05.2016 • 'Fashion from another planet. Unwearable, subversive, radically post-human, alien.' Gestalten Publishing presents with 'Otherworldly' avant-garde garments, styling, fashion photography, and young designers who are light-years away from the mainstream. Other rules apply to the fashion of the future.

Otherworldly celebrates a fashion avant-garde located in the quadrant of the galaxies futurism and fetish. The book presents designs, among others, from Alexander McQueen, Martin Margiela, Lucy McRae, Peter Popps, and Iris van Herpen. Co-Editor of the book is fashion avant-gardist Theo-Mass Lexileictous.

Shop • GoSee Tip : It's real street photography! Masahisa Fukase 'Hibi' - overpainted photographs of street asphalt details (Mack Publishing)

11.05.2016 • The series titled HIBI by Japanese photographers was created for the exhibition of the same name in back in 1992. Now finally, the photos of street asphalt which were later overpainted by Masahisa Fukase are getting attention again. Michael Hoppen Gallery just exhibited HIBI at the ARMORY SHOW in New York, and the unique collection of photos has been released by Mack Publishing in an illustrated book. A must-have which is sure to be sold out fast.

Fotobuch Publishing tells us how the works were made: “Hibi literally comprises a series of street photographs by renowned Japanese photographer Masahisa Fukase. Each of the black and white images painstakingly attend to the road’s surface – the worn road-markings, the fading lines and arrows eroded by the city’s innumerable inhabitants, a web of fissures in the asphalt. In 1992, Fukase printed and painted the works for a solo exhibition, 'Private Scenes ‘92', held at Nikon Salon in Tokyo. He overlaid a set of bromide prints with fluid drawings in brightly coloured inks and on every image the physical presence of the artist is...
