01.08.2017 • COMMON ERA presents 'Birduals' on GoSee – a collaboration between Serial Cut and still life expert Paloma Rincón, presenting stuffed birds in a graphical surrounding. "The animals depict the duality of life and death. Their bright feathers and proud poses reveal an unreal sense of vitality and lightness, whereas the copper portion, a consequence of trespassing the golden ring, shows a static figure evoking a heavy copper statue. The three stuffed animals used in this project died of natural causes and were handled with love and care,"the photographer says about her latest project, which was published by DLTD-SCENES.

'I am a Madrid-based photographer working worldwide, from commercial assignments for big companies to more experimental and personal projects. My images showcase interesting worlds where different languages blend together inside fine and detailed graphic compositions. With an accurate use of technique, my dynamic still lifes play with reality, where the beauty of handcraft recovers its magic. '

23.07.2017 • Coming in with a big bang, PIRELLI presents a preview of the 2018 calendar, which was realized by star photographer TIM WALKER, for which he got ladies of color including stars the likes of Naomi Campbell, Lupita Nyong'o or Sean Diddy in front of the camera, whom he staged with the usual attention to detail against a surreal backdrop à la Alice in Wonderland. Creative Director at his side was Shona Heath. The first edition of the photo calendar of the Italian tire manufacturer was published in 1964. Over the years, the PIRELLI calendar became the epitome of erotic photography. Photographers such as Peter Lindbergh, Bruce Weber, Herb Ritts or Karl Lagerfeld have designed the calendar to this day.

“His 12 months evoke the fable first published in 1865 by the English mathematician and writer reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the well-known pseudonym of Lewis Carroll: Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Inspired by this fantastic narrative, Tim Walker's images are tableaux vivants full of allusions to unlikely situations, to illusory proverbs, cited with a constant reference...

Art • GoSee loves ... 'Exploring Desires' - the collage-like, surreal portraits with a touch of drama by Matthieu Bourel as an exhibition at PAVLOV'S DOG in Berlin

12.07.2017 • The gallery for contemporary photo art presents works by artist Matthieu Bourel, who cuts, combines and puts together, what doesn't belong together in the first place - following the tradition of the Dadaists. “His visually powerful collages catapult us into a world, of which we don't know if it's a reminiscence of a bygone or the prophecy of a forthcoming one – it's solely the artist's world. The artist takes refined twists and turns beyond any straight visual narrative and cleverly evades an interpretation. Among others the analogue process, physical contact with the raw material is important for the artist when creating his own visual worlds.” the gallery tells us about his works.

“The most important thing for me is to appropriate things, to make them somehow special. So that the power doesn't come from the source, but from what I did with it. That's the most important thing in everything I'm doing.” says Matthieu Bourel, who describes his work as "data-ism", a term which references to the permanent data flow we are constantly exposed to. Artists deal with that in their own...

Art • 'The moment when a person changes into an image...' the classic sibling portraits by Finish photo poet Nelli Palomäki - as an exhibition at Gallery Taik Persons and in a preview on GoSee

22.06.2017 • Gallery Taik Persons presents the exhibition 'Shared' by Nelli Palomäki, successful graduate of the Helsinki School and Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture. 'Shared' explores the complex theme of siblinghood, in its manifestations of human relationships and familial bonds. The portraits focus on children and young adults as subjects, who are shown solemnly engaged in situations and constellations. Once friend, once foe; closest allies, most rivaled competitors – the subtle hierarchies of power between siblings are continuously shifting. A heartfelt embrace can turn into a heated wrestle within seconds: This is the shared life of siblings.

Through her portraits, Palomäki aspires to capture these facets of shared siblinghood in all its physical, psychological, and emotional complexity. Though nearly every portrait is carefully planned and staged beforehand, an element of the accidental is always retained, thus animating the work with unforeseen results and revelations, and carrying a magic life of its own. Here, the act of posing presents a crucial moment, in...

Jocoy obsessively photographed what was in front of him – in bedrooms, bathrooms, strip clubs, at punk shows at Mabuhay Gardens, alleyways and bars. Jocoy found outlets for showcasing his photos in his own punk/art zine, Windows and Orphans, as well as in seminal SF zines Search and Destroy, Research, and Punk Globe.
