Burning banalities

Christina Hagen: Jungle Basilisk

Intimate portrait of an iconic photographer

Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato .: Mapplethorpe: Look at the Pictures.

The aspiring street photographer

: Chinese Fan Photography captures the lives, dreams and hard work of individuals in an expanding metropolis.

Photo book – an expanding language

: The photo book fills a void that the digital display space cannot fill, and therefore becomes even more important for a generation flooded with images.

The living image as recognition

: The use of photography and film for ethnographic purposes is nothing new. But live images are more than just entertainment and storytelling.

The banal emptiness of war

White trash

: People look at the lens, yet it is as if they would rather give way and retreat to the courtyard, to the field, the family, the intoxication, the church, the sleep.

The photographic meeting

: «I'm not looking for a documentary look – I would rather interfere in the reality of the people I am going to portray. It is in the meeting between me and them, where the boundary between fiction and documentary is unclear, that I can create something honest, "says Hilde Honerud.
