Author update: back in 2016, architect, educator, and researcher Georg Windeck published “Construction Matters” with powerHouse Books, examining the way that architects understand and respond to technological innovation through the creation of new types of spaces, and the materials through which an architectural idea finds its physical realization.

Now, he’s spearheading the pilot study abroad program for the College of Architecture of IIT Chicago for architecture students from Berlin!

A Time Before Crack — by Jamel Shabazz

Once upon a time before crack, Jamel Shabazz was on the scene, working the streets of New York City, capturing the faces and places of an era that have long since disappeared.

A visual diary of the streets of New York City from the mid-1970s to the mid-80s, Shabazz's distinctive photographs reveal the families, the poses, and the players who made this age extraordinary.

Excited to have 3 winter online classes start next week!
Very much looking forward to welcoming back many talented members of the FotoFilmic family to our virtual classroom for yet another thrilling season of mentoring, learning, sharing and supporting emerging and mid-careers contemporary photographers and their practices around the world!

The course unfolds a period of 12 weeks and is ideally suited to photographers looking to start new projects, or re-boot the narratives of existing ones. If you haven't yet, learn more at the link below, and get in touch soon if interested in gaining loads of feedback and lasting artistic guidance from Brian to rocket 2022 forward!

‘Dads’ a book by Flemish photographer Bart Heynen portrays gay fatherhood in America.

Bart Heynen currently lives in Brooklyn and traveled across the U.S. to photograph gay dads with their kids. Why did he make these portraits? In an interview Heynen said he felt a bit lonely as a gay dad since all the other families he knew were straight families. He also thinks it’s important for his kids to see other families with gay dads. Heynen hopes that the book will dispel some of the hurtful stereotypes that still linger around gay fatherhood.

‘Dads’ seeks to show the full spectrum of fatherhood in the U.S. : married couples, single fathers, widowers, … The book also includes several surrogates, who helped some of these gay dads’ dream come true.

➡️ ‘Dads’ is available now
