At every street corner one wonders if they are still in ordinary life, have stepped onto a movie set, or have entered a heat-induced mirage. Italian photographer Gianluca Galtrucco, resident of the City of Angels for many years, discovers comedic and dramatic images throughout L.A. and its region that blur the boundary between reality and artifice. It is not clear in which of his pictures Galtrucco ha …16.08.2017 // ADD article TO MY GOSEE // 8 items in this article // SHOW article

Hatje Cantz presents a new FRED HERZOG monograph with more than 230 photos, the majority of which have never before been reproduced, and the hitherto most comprehensive publication on the oeuvre of this significant photographer, who emigrated from Germany to Canada. Fred Herzog (*1930) is known for his unusual use of color in the fifties and sixties, a time when art photography was almost exclusively associated with black and white imagery. The Canadian photographer worked almost exclusively …11.01.2017 // ADD article TO MY GOSEE // 12 items in this article // SHOW article
“Nearly nine decades of life and seven decades of a career in photography: the visual autobiography Frank Horvat | Photographic Autobiography is anything but an ordinary photography book,” says the publishing company Hatje Cantz about its new publication. “Instead, it's an intimate witness to a chequered past, a loving memorial to enduring snapshots and an impressive documentary of the history of photography.” “In order to take a good picture, it’s not enou …12.12.2016 // ADD article TO MY GOSEE // 20 items in this article // SHOW article

The project was on exhibit just recently this spring at Gagosian in New York. Taryn Simon described her idea for the “impossible bouquets” in an interview with Vogue as follows: 'I was interested in the idea of the men who feel they can control the evolution of the world with their language and assertions and the flimsy paperwork that they are about to sign. And nature is just this castrated, decorative thing that sits between them. It’s a race against time. What is going to la …06.04.2016 // ADD article TO MY GOSEE // 11 items in this article // SHOW article
In 1987, with CVJ – Nicknames of Maitre D's & Other Excerpts from Life, Julian Schnabel wrote a type of pictorial autobiography, retracing from the first-person perspective the artist's path to success.

Once again artist Taryn Simon surprises us with yet another pursuit. This time she was on a secret mission… In 1936, an ornithologist called James Bond released the definitive taxonomy of birds found in the Caribbean, titled Birds of the West Indies. Ian Fleming, an active bird watcher living in Jamaica, subsequently appropriated the name for his novel’s lead character. He found it to be perfectly ‘ordinary’, and ‘masculine’. This co-opting of names was the f …02.04.2014 // ADD article TO MY GOSEE // 18 items in this article // SHOW article
