KIDS & ART PHOTOGRAPHY • GoSee loves… Achim Lippoth 'Geschichten über das Kindsein/Storytelling' - children photography beyond all clishés between melancholy and enormous energy. Exhibition & monograph

15.03.2017 • Not just cute: children in a world of their own

Photographer Achim Lippoth (*1968 in Ilshofen) discovered his subject – childhood – while studying art. Geschichten über das Kindsein/Storytelling presents a comprehensive view of Lippoth’s practice. The sensitivity of his photographs make it possible to understand the world of children, and their naturalness is touching, taking viewers back to their own childhood experiences. With great respect for their emotions, their frankness, and their dreams, Lippoth shifts the focus to his young protagonists. Here, adults take on the roles of extras, at most. Lippoth’s visual vocabulary does not include staging his photographs, nevertheless, the children’s poses anticipate their eventual arrival into the world of adulthood. Far from reinforcing clichéd roles or being patronizing, Lippoth’s photographs, through their careful use of light and captivating close-ups, tell stories of feeling carefree in childhood as well as the stories of the families and of belonging.

Shop • GoSee Book Tip : Retracing Our Steps Fukushima Exclusion Zone 2011 – 2016 by Carlos Ayesta and Guillaume Bression – the in-depth documentary on the epic disaster in an illustrated book published by KEHRER

08.03.2017 • These unusual photos stimulate contemplation about the consequences of an nuclear disaster of this magnitude. What remains of an area where 80,000 inhabitants had to be evacuated from one day to the next? What do former inhabitants think about returning to their ghost towns? For the latest series, titled 'Retracing our Steps', the photographers asked former residents to return to their shops or schools and re-open the doors of their buildings which were once so routine. They were invited to behave like normal in front of the camera – as if nothing had happened. These surreal and yet plausible photos are both a mix of what is normal and strange in the aftermath of a historically significant nuclear incident.

“This photographic work is our contribution to the narrative of a historic disaster. The accident is far from over, both at the power station and among the nuclear refugees. And we hope to continue to testify to this sad but multifaceted chapter in the history of the Fukushima region,” as it says in the introduction by Carlos Ayesta und Guillaume Bression

I thought it would be fun to do a book in my way.” TASCHEN tells us about the book: “Blending old-world charm with a rebellious edge and a sly subversion of traditional gender roles, Heimat bursts with fresh, provocative eroticism, tied up with wit, laced with an...

Shop • 'Buzzing at the Sill' – a book about America in the shadow of wars by reportage photographer Peter van Agtmael as an illustrated book at Kehrer Publishing and as a book tip for you on GoSee

27.02.2017 • “Buzzing at the Sill is Peter van Agtmael's (*1981) work about coming home from years of covering war in Iraq and Afghanistan and trying to understand his experiences and his country. A student of history at Yale during the September 11 attacks and the invasion of Iraq, his sheltered life was uprooted by the realization that he needed to cover the wars. The work is a stew of reflections on war, memory, militarism, identity, race, class, family, surrealism and the landscape. It is both about the limitations of photography and an homage to its power,” is how Kehrer Publishing describes its publication, which we are delighted to introduce on GoSee.

Only one week after it was released, Buzzing at the Sill made it onto TIME magazine's list of the best photography books in 2016. It is a sequel to Disco Night Sept. 11, van Agtmael's previous book on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan that was shortlisted for the Paris Photo/Aperture Book Award and was named a Book of the Year by The New York Times Magazine, Time, Vogue and American Photo.

Peter van Agtmael was born in Washington DC...
