Shop • COPACABANA PALACE by Peter Bauza as an illustrated book at Edition Lammerhuber and an exhibition & award at Fotofestival Visa pour l’Image, France

04.09.2016 • Visually stunning, passionate and true to life. Copacabana Palace is the story of a never completed housing project in Rio de Janeiro, named after the famous luxury hotel on the even more famous Copacabana Beach. Peter Bauza lived eight months together with the residents of Copacabana Palace to create a unique photo document.
„Paradise is here, hell is here, madness is here, passion is here.“ This statement of the renowned Brazilian composer and singer Francis Himes about Rio became Peter Bauza‘s motto when he photographed the people of Copacabana Palace. The six blocks of this uncompleted housing compound have become a place of shelter and hope for some 300 'sem teto, sem terra' families without roof or land. Peter Bauza’s superbly perceptive pictures form a highly poetic tale of their lives, their everyday moments of joy and sadness, their needs and illusions, but also of beauty and strength and the co-existence community that has emerged in these precarious circumstances. Copacabana Palace is a typical example of the fight for survival of millions of Brazilians in similar...

Shop • Confrontation between modern and ancient times : Imperium Romanum. Opus Extractum II - Alfred Seiland documents the influences of Roman culture, architecture and art in the 21st century. As a photobook at Hartmann Books

03.09.2016 • In the year 2006 A.D. Alfred Seiland set out on his project ”Imperium Romanum“. What started as an interesting assignment (by the New York Times Magazine) to accompany the shoot of the HBO Series ”Rome“ in Cinecittà, turned into a thorough, longterm photographic research of the remains of Roman culture, architecture, landscape, and art in the early 21st century.

“Under the supervision of world-class scientists, every piece of prop was literally remade as authentically as possible. So silks from India, brass works from Morocco etc. Were used. Finally, the artifacts took up two-thirds of Cinecittà, and that in breathtaking quality: You had to knock against the backdrops to tell real marble from imitation. You can imagine how fast I decided to photograph only these sensational backdrops,” says the photographer in an interview with journalist Andreas Langen about the beginning of project.

Using his brilliantly imaginative, sometimes ironic photographic language, taking buildings, landscapes, and artefacts of the Roman Empire as a point of reference, Alfred Seiland creates an...

Shop • R.I.P. Billy Name. We say goodbye with the book 'Factory – Andy Warhol' from Stephen Shore, just released at Phaidon Publishing

02.09.2016 • One of the most important witnesses of the Warhol era has just passed – photographer Billy Name, who is famous for giving Andy Warhol’s loft the complete silver look. The mother of all studios was known among insiders as the Silver Factory.

In the new Warhol book 'Warhol: Factory' by photographer Stephen Shore which was recently released, Billy Name himself speaks about what went on there: “Andy and I were hanging around together. I had an apartment on the Lower East Side, where I had haircutting salons. Hundreds of people would come, and I’d be cutting someone’s hair. Andy came. When he first started making films, he made films about what a person was famous for,” Billy, whose real name was William Linich Jr., recalled. “I was famous for giving haircuts, so he said, “Would you let me do a film of you doing haircuts?” [Haircut, 1963] I had covered my entire apartment in silver foil and painted everything silver. Andy said, “Well, I just got a new loft [the Factory]; would you do to it what you’ve done to your apartment?” I said, “Oh, sure, let’s do it.” So, I started doing it....

Shop • Gudmundur and Geirfinnur, Iceland’s most mysterious murder case. Looked into in the book 'Sugar Paper Theories' byJack Latham, published at Here Press, book launch on 6 September in der Photographers’ Gallery

31.08.2016 • Forty years ago, two men went missing in southwest Iceland. The facts of their disappearances are scarce, and often mundane. An 18-year-old set off from a nightclub, drunk, on a 10-kilometer walk home in the depths of Icelandic winter. Some months later, a family man failed to return from a meeting with a mysterious stranger. In another time or place, they might have been logged as missing persons and forgotten by all but family and friends. Instead, the Gudmundur and Geirfinnur case became the biggest and most controversial murder investigation in Icelandic history.

In the 1970s, theories about the disappearances fixated on Iceland’s anxieties over smuggling, drugs and alcohol, and the corrupting influence of the outside world. The country’s highest levels of political power were drawn into the plot. But ultimately, a group of young people on the fringes of society became its key protagonists. All made confessions that led to convictions and prison sentences. Yet none could remember what happened on the nights in question.

Now a public inquiry is uncovering another story,...
