GoSee Recommends : Elias Wessel – There Must Be More To Life. Or: What is Amanda Lepore swallowing?

There it is, set out like a kid’s picture book, with thick cardboard pages, brightly coloured prints and no words. The cover image, a portrait of a blonde boy could also come across as infantile – if it wasn’t for those big pouty glossy red lips. Our perception is questioned, our curiosity awoken and Elias Wessel has our full attention: his new book ‘There Must Be More To Life’ is out now, published by Norman Beckmann Verlag. It is all about self-discovery and reinvention, and of course Amanda Lepore.

Amanda Lepore performed in front of Elias Wessel’s camera at the Jane Hotel in New York City. She appears alternately humorous, mournful, glamorous, innocent, and sexy, presenting exaggerations of the everyday (never in terms of her appearance, her she remains untouched as her perfect self). The images sometimes have a slight pornographic vibe, however they do fall into, even rather quickly and softly, the funny and surreal.

The artbook conceptualized as a children-picture book in close cooperation between the artist and book designer Philipp Hubert at Hubert & Fischer, feels like a theatrical play staged in four acts: the floral curtains are raised, she is by herself, on the phone, spends the evening lounging on the sofa. Curtain down. What is she swallowing? Next act with interior introduction. She is no ...

GoSee book recommendation: Theo Gosselin ‘Avec le coeur’. Young, free & immortal – daily life as a colourful road trip. The second edition by Éditions du LIC and a sneak peek here on GoSee

Theo Gosselin symbolises a new generation. With his camera, he documents his life, his daily routine, visiting festivals and his friends. Naked, around the campfire or the morning after. The 22 year-old has built up an impressive Facebook following of 77,500 people within a very short period of time. His daily pictures and posts reach thousands of ‘likes’ within a few hours – any brand’s dream. Some of his most memorable and beautiful moments are included in the photo book ‘Avec le coeur’, which has just been published as a second edition by Editions du LiC.

The photographer says: ‘my favourite subjects are the uninhibited young people who are my friends, photos taken from the inside, in the privacy of our travels together, our adventures, our evolution in this strange world. Love, friendships, and our appropriation of nature and the urban world. Young, free and immortal’

Theo Gosselin was born in 1990 in the French port city of Le Havre in Normandy, where he grew up with the sea, the wind and the sound of electronic guitars. Inspired by art, music and cinema, he decided to study art, graduating in 2012 as a graphic designer in Amiens. Five years later, he worked more and more with photography, which was to be his full-time career. In August 2012, he produced his first film, ‘Goodbye ...

GoSee Recommendation: the explosive beauty of the moment. Christian Weber's 'Explosions' monograph

Christian Weber's "Explosions" is a compelling monograph that uniquely illustrates the photographic medium's ability to capture fleeting phenomena. The images summon the majesty and ambition of American color-field paintings while evoking the experimentation of predecessors like Eadward Muybridge. The works clearly eschew forensics in favor of picturing a world of dynamic form and beauty.

SCHORN & WEGENER photograph Esther Grether’s private collection. Hatje Cantz presents the works in ‘Affinité Élective – Wahlverwandschaft’

For the first time Swiss entrepreneur Esther Grether presents her legendary private art collection, which has only been available to selected guests and friends thus far. ‘Affinité élective’. Wahlverwandtschaft. Die Sammlung Esther Grether’ is the title of this book, published by Hatje Cantz Verlag. A collection of work from the 20th century by Pablo Picasso, Paul Cezanne, Salvador Dali, Francis Bacon, Alberto Giacometti, Eva Aeppli, Louise Bourgeois and Bruce Nauman among others. Esther Grether is a major shareholder and administrator of the Swatch Group. Her family’s assets are estimated by ‘Forbes’ magazine to be the equivalent of about 1.6 billion Euros.

The photographs by SCHORN & WEGENER show how the rooms submit to the works of art and they highlight the collection’s independence of categories and values in the representation-based art market. When viewing the great pictures we only have one question - how can we arrange a meeting with Ms Grether?

Hatje Cantz’s poetic description reads: ‘due to the intimate affinity of the works themselves, the collection, like almost no other, impressively represents a life lived in devotion to the masterpieces. The title of this first extensive publication on the collection echoes this dual distinction: an elective affinity is what ...

Edition Lammerhuber : THE LONG SHADOW OF CHERNOBYL. Photo book on life with nuclear power plant disasters including essay by Michail Gorbatschow

Publisher Lois Lammerhuber says: ‘bad news sell worse, but there are topics that are so important that we have to publish them against all odds’. And the book in question certainly has some bad news in store for us. ‘THE LONG SHADOW OF CHERNOBYL’ deals with the dramatic long-term consequences of the biggest nuclear catastrophe in history.

Therefore the author of the book, National Geographic photographer Gerd Ludwig, came up with the idea of starting a Kickstarter campaign to inform about this important project and invite people to support this book project out of solidarity.

This picture book – supported by an essay by Mikhail Gorbachev - stands as a complete document of this man-made disaster – and helps to remember the countless victims of Chernobyl, and to warn future generations of the deadly consequences of human hubris.

On Sunday 26th April, 1986 a nuclear power plant in Chernobyl near Pripyat, Ukraine, exploded. It was the world’s worst nuclear disaster to date.

Almost exactly 25 years later, on 11th March 2011 a tsunami hit the Nuclear Power Plant in Fukushima. The actual consequences of what occurred are only beginning to show in full scope today. To mark the third anniversary of Fukushima, the book THE LONG SHADOW OF CHERNOBYL reminds us which consequences we have ...
