charity • 100 photos for press freedom. Peter Lindbergh supports Reporters Without Borders

What does a fashion photographer have to do with press freedom? When a big name like Peter Lindbergh comes into play, then the question becomes irrelevant. Because every bit of support that draws attention to heroes armed with just a camera, is more than welcome. Reporters Without Borders documents crimes against press and information freedom worldwide and alerts the public when journalists and their co-workers are in danger. Their experiences in 2014 range from the distressing to the harrowing. They have been fighting for increased security and protection of journalists – as well as combatting censorship online and offline, the use and export of censorship software and last but not least against restrictive media laws, be it East, West, South or North.

The new photo book ‘Reporters Without Borders’ contains 100 images by German fashion photographer Peter Lindbergh. It does not, however, show various catastrophes, instead it presents a beautiful theme in many variations: women. From photogenic classics such as Kate Moss, to actresses like Nicole Kidman, to legends such as Natassja Kinski and Tilda Swinton. Peter Lindbergh has over 40 years of experience, mastering the art of capturing the fashion world without getting swallowed up by it. Similar to Reporters Without Borders he keeps a healthy distance, which makes him the ideal celebrity ...

GoSee Recommends: Reading the Landscape - Olaf Otto Becker sharpens our gaze and awareness of disappearing landscapes. An opulent picture book plus collector's edition at Hatje Cantz

In his most recent series of works, READING THE LANDSCAPES, which was taken in the jungles of Indonesia and Malaysia with a large-format camera, the master of landscape photography presents a photographic juxtaposition of intact forest and merciless eradication. And despite the controversial topic, Olaf Otto Becker manages to take us on another fascinating journey into nature.

When I am photographing I try to imagine exactly how this particular view might look in fifty, one hundred, or even five hundred years. How will it have changed?’ asks Becker. ‘What traces do people leave behind? How do we treat nature?’ Olaf Otto Becker (* 1959) presents idyllic places in the breathtaking photographs from his Habitat series: paradisiacal images from the Malaysian and Indonesian jungle, romantic water meadows, liana slung trees, ecological niches for countless creatures – untouched tropical rain forests.

In the second part of his series he juxtaposes this with pictures of what happens when international companies deforest entire swathes of land and create huge tree-less spaces. Soil erosion quickly follows and leaves no living things behind. The photographer shows us artificial ‘forests’ in his last series, which architects design worldwide to make urban spaces greener. Is this what our future looks like?

GoSee Tip : Hong Kong in the ‘50s and ‘60s. An unbelievable journey through time with early street photography by award-winning Chinese master of photography Fan Ho

Chinese photographer Fan Ho spent the 1950s and ‘60s on the streets of Hong Kong, which are now completely unrecognisable, due to the economic boom. He captured pictures of people’s everyday life that now seem like silent contemporary witnesses from a displaced world that has mostly been repressed in our collective memory. Kids playing at the abyss, child labour, patriarchy … an oppressive reality of life. This makes the pictures look even more painterly today. The pictures are part of his new book: ‘Fan Ho: A Hong Kong Memoir’.

Since his relocation from Shanghai to Hong Kong in 1949, Fan Ho has documented the cities constant change with pictures of these daily life situations. But back then that was no easy feat in this not very art-conscious city – even his neighbours weren’t used to the constant clicking of the shutter, so ubiquitous in our world today. Fan Ho told South China Morning Post about one of his spontaneous ‘clicks’ in an interview: ‘with a knife in his hand, a pig butcher said he would chop me. He wanted his spirit back.’


About - Fan Ho. Award-wining photographer Fan Ho has won 280 awards from international exhibitions and competitions worldwide since 1956. Ho has been elected Fellow of the Photographic Society of America, Fellow of the Royal ...

illustration • HOLLY BLACK presents the new novel ‘The Darkest Part of the Forest’. Cover design by TOBY & PETE

100 % handmade. CGI and animation duo TOBY & PETE created the cover of the new HOLLY BLACK novel ‘The Darkest Part of the Forest’. With very elaborate detail work they arranged every single leaf to achieve the desired spooky typography.

About - The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black. Children can have a cruel, absolute sense of justice. Children can kill a monster and feel quite proud of themselves. A girl can look at her brother and believe they’re destined to be a knight and a bard who battle evil. She can believe she’s found the thing she’s been made for. Hazel lives with her brother, Ben, in the strange town of Fairfold where humans and fae exist side by side. The faeries’ seemingly harmless magic attracts tourists, but Hazel knows how dangerous they can be, and she knows how to stop them. Or she did, once. At the center of it all, there is a glass coffin in the woods. It rests right on the ground and in it sleeps a boy with horns on his head and ears as pointed as knives. Hazel and Ben were both in love with him as children. The boy has slept there for generations, never waking. Until one day, he does… As the world turns upside down, Hazel tries to remember her years pretending to be a knight. But swept up in new love, shifting loyalties, and the fresh sting of betrayal, will it be ...

Heinrich Heidersberger Light Harmonies. The Rhythmograms. Luminous rhythmograms situated somewhere between mechanical drawing and photography

The rhythmograms by Heinrich Heidersberger (1906–2006) are complex curved compositions of pure light that weave abstract figures, organisms, and spaces. Heinrich Heidersberger created these intricate light patterns during the fifties and sixties, capturing the invisible and elusive worlds of time and motion in a single frame. He drew the rhythmograms using an enormous deconstructed photographic machine of his own design. Outfitted not with a camera but instead with an ingenious, room-sized mechanical apparatus to trace the geometry of delicate waves and oscillations, the machine reproduced the elegant orbit of a single ray of light on a photographic plate. Widely known as an architectural photographer of postwar modernism, Heidersberger’s little-known rhythmograms comprise a fascinating bridge between the work of early modernists and the future of algorithmic art and architecture. This is the first critical study of his rhythmograms in all of their delicate detail. A selection of his rhythmograms were on show at Petra Rietz Salon Galerie, Berlin. The book, edited by Andrew Witt, is out now.

Heinrich Heidersberger- Light Harmonies. The Rhythmograms Edited by Andrew Witt, Texts by Andrew Witt and more., graphic design by Neil Donnelly ISBN 978-3-7757-3774-6, € 39,80, 2014. 120 pages, 76 duotone illustrations, 24,70 x 30,70 cm, HATJE ...
