Shop • GoSee Tip : 'Milli Bau – Seidenstrasse'. With a VW Van on the Silk Road, Milli Bau's journey shows almost 20 years of cultural and contemporary history in a book which just appeared at KERBER Publishing

12.09.2017 • In 1956, journalist and photographer Milli Bau embarked on a journey to explore the countries of the Silk Road traveling in a VW T1 bus converted into a house on wheels. It was not until 1974 that she returned to Germany after spending longer periods of time in Iran and China – taking home with her countless texts, objects, and more than 15,000 photographs.

Her journey took the following incredible course: It began with a boat trip on the 1st of January, 1956, from Hamburg to Beirut and continued by van along the old Silk Road to Xian (China). She traveled to Syria, Jordan, Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, India, and Nepal until she reached China. Milli Bau spent a longer period of time in some locations but only passed through others.

The tales of her journey are accompanied by photographs which she took with a twin lens Rolleiflex. Holding the camera in front of her belly, she portrayed her subjects up close to achieve a proximity and, by doing so, a particular intimacy characteristic of her photographs. Diary notes along with...

Shop • GoSee loves ... 'What Sort Of Life Is This', the book by young Danish photographer Albert Elm, published at The Ice Plant

17.08.2017 • What does the world look like? What feelings does it stimulate? Why do we photograph it so urgently? Since 2009, Danish photographer Albert Elm (born 1990) has pursued his curiosity about human existence with a restless energy and intrepid wanderlust, crossing far-flung time zones, boarding the Trans-Siberian Railway, traveling alone in Dubai, China, India, or just walking through his neighborhood in Copenhagen.

'What Sort of Life Is This' remixes Elm’s distant and local journeys into a bright, bewildering panoply of narrative fragments and surreal compositions that feels both global and personal, fractured yet strangely complete. Photographed using a 35mm film camera (color and black and white) and referencing numerous styles and genres, the work explodes with the spontaneous color and complexity of life—tender, violent, lonely, joyful, bizarre. Equalizing the exotic and the banal, the book treats every picture as if it were made in the same mystifying place: the world itself.

Shop • Gianluca Galtrucco 'For Your Consideration – Los Angeles as a cinematic mirrage - a Hatje Cantz illustrated book full of sit-com, glamour & kitsch, between reality and artifice

16.08.2017 • Like no other city in the world, Los Angeles encourages the observer to play with illusions. 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 has created dream tableaux and in which he has simply carried existing situations to extremes. Sometimes the titles provide the key; at other times, they only enhance the disorientation. Many of the words and names allude to the world of cinema, underscoring how thoroughly Los Angeles has been shaped by its best known industry – and how many movies shape our view of the city in turn. As much showman as lensman, Galtrucco urges us to suspend disbelief and to trust his imagery. That way, everything can fall into place. Hatje Cantz presents on GoSee a preview between hollywood glamour and...

Shop • The VIERI Jewelry 2017 campaign by Marco TRUNZ c/o SONJA HEINTSCHEL

14.08.2017 • At the end of the 1930s, the grandfather of Guya Merkle, Rudolf Merkle, founded jewelry wholesaler Rudolf Merkle in Pforzheim, the stronghold of the German jewelery industry. Inspired by his Italian wife Eva Gaietta, a relative to the royal house de la Serra, the jewels created by the company increasingly became more and more elegant. When Eddy Merkle suddenly died in 2007, the faith of the company was entirely undecided. His, then 21-year-old, daughter Guya Merkle decided to change the company according to her ideas completely. At the Baselworld 2013, she launched the brand VIERI. Already connecting tradition with the modern age by choosing the new brand name: VIERI was the second name of her father. Since 2015, VIERI is based in Berlin and uses the creative vibe in the city to adjust internationally. The new campaign was phographed by Marco TRUNZ c/o SONJA HEINTSCHEL. vieri.com

Shop • GoSee loves LGBT: San Francisco - The Daniel Nicoletta Photographs presents you true heroes who anaged to change the world for us all – both in drag and not

01.08.2017 • In 1975, the then 20-year-old Nicoletta worked in Milk’s famous camera store in the Castro district, one of the first gay districts in the US at all. Nicoletta's photographs of equally convincing and charismatic human rights activist, Harvey Milk, who became one of the world's first officials to openly express his homosexuality, are probably among his most famous photographs.

Milk dedicated his work to a world with equal rights and that at a time when the growing visibility of the LGBT movement was up against widespread hostility and systematic discrimination. Milk himself was murdered in his office in the City Hall in 1978, only one year after being elected. Despite the tragic death of Harvey Milk and the impending tragedy of the AIDS epidemic, Nicoletta remained faithful to his commitment as an unrelenting documenter of the LGBT movement. The illustrated book documents the chaos on the streets of San Francisco in this pioneer era – which ultimately led to the right to marriage for everyone almost all over Europe, another important step towards the final equality of all...
