Unseen

We still have a few copies remaining of this remarkable project. If you haven’t watched this film we made with Shahrzad, please do.

“My body changed in every aspect, so I started to look at myself through my camera”. (🇳🇱 below) This video accompanied a limited edition artist' book (‘Half Light’) by Iranian photographer Shahrzad Darafsheh, a 37 year old artist who was battling cancer in Tehran at the time. Right now, she is in quarantine, like many of us. ‘Half Light’ offers us a window into her life and experience through her sickness. It invites us into a country which many of us have no knowledge of, or visibility into. It’s also an experiment in storytelling as the experience varies depending on what language you read the bilingual book in. When read in Farsi, from right to left, the result is very different from that which an English reader will experience. Darafsheh’s work was on show in the booth of Ag Galerie in Iran during Unseen 2019. Buy this limited edition book on Gnomic Book.

🇳🇱 “Mijn lichaam veranderde in elk opzicht, dus begon ik door mijn camera naar mezelf te kijken”. Deze video vergezelde een limited edition kunstenaarsboek (‘Half Light’) van de Iraanse fotograaf Shahrzad Darafsheh, een 37-jarige kunstenaar die in deze periode tegen kanker vocht in Teheran. Op dit moment is ze in quarantaine, zoals velen van ons. ‘Half Light’ biedt ons een kijkje in haar leven en in hoe zij haar ziekte ervaarde. Ze nodigt ons uit in een land waar velen van ons weinig over weten. Het is ook een experiment in het vertellen van verhalen, aangezien de ervaring varieert afhankelijk van de taal waarin je het tweetalige boek leest. Wanneer je het boek in het Farsi leest, van rechts naar links, is het resultaat heel anders dan wat een Engelse lezer zal ervaren. Darafsheh's werk was te zien in de booth van Ag Galerie in Iran tijdens Unseen 2019. Je kunt dit limited edition kunstenaarsboek kopen op Gnomic Book

We missed being able to go to book fairs this year, so we made our own, on the internet. It's called Virtual—Assembly, it's happening next weekend, and we have a world-class lineup of live artist discussions over videoconference and over 40 of the most interesting publishers from all over the world presenting their latest books. We're still accepting submissions for new publishers until next Tuesday, so if this sounds interesting, drop us a line! [email protected]

Mike Osborne, Federal Triangle - Collector Daily

Thanks to Loring Knoblauch for this insightful review of Mike Osborne's Federal Triangle on Collector Daily.

"It repeatedly catches us jumping to increasingly polarized and unrealistic conclusions, like scenes out of a spy thriller, and yet, we can’t seem to help ourselves. Osborne has smartly crafted images that amplify this tension, turning the whole project into a very dark comedy at our own expense. But it’s not paranoia if it’s really happening, right?"

Federal Triangle, by @_mike_osborne_ is one of @time’s best photobooks of 2019. @sunilphoto, in a wonderful interview with Osborne for @americansuburbx, writes: “Osborne’s imaginary triangle covers the area between The Capitol, The White House and the National Mall. It is something of a “Bermuda Triangle” of opaque political activity, that to the onlooker is visible only under close surveillance. In making this work, Osborne does exactly that, with his camera searching for evidence to support a theory bordering between the slightly paranoid and the surely absurd idea that there are sinister powers at play hidden from the ordinary person." Thank you Sunil!

Abendlied, by @birthepiontek, is one of @time’s best Photobooks of 2019. @kelli_connell writes for @strangefirecollective, “Piontek’s images have no titles. The depth of feeling in her photographs cannot be easily articulated. A string of words woven together might rob her photographs of a multitude of feelings and gasps and grief that cannot be grounded by language. The only words appropriate, and so profoundly included in the book, are found tipped in its pages, a personal letter written by @nhmcelroy to Piontek:

Time is fluid and cracked, f**ked up across the eras and objects, the 70’s, the war, the person you believe yourself to be…and your sisters and father and nieces and nephews are liquid and sloshing, aged, timeless, somehow rhyming with one another but never quite themselves.”

Thank you Kelli and Strange Fire for a lovely review!

Thank you Kelli and Strange Fire for a lovely review!

We are thrilled to welcome Kelli Connell to the Strange Fire team as our newest book reviewer! Her first feature, focusing on Birthe Piontek's "Abendlied," published by Gnomic Book in 2019, launched today.

"There is nothing straightforward about losing someone you love to dementia. For seven years Piontek created this work, together with the help of her mother, who battled the disease, and her family who was there to witness its effects and support one another. In Piontek’s 'Abendlied' we see a grief so beautiful it is painful. Her images, and their sequence and pacing in the book, sing."

"The path of paranoia leads us to a pizza parlor, armed to the teeth and utterly convinced of the righteousness of the mission. At the other end of the spectrum, we’re left with doubt, uncertainty, and a recognition of our own limitations."

Federal Triangle // Mike Osborne - published by Gnomic Book, reviewed by Bucky Miller.
-
"A lone figure casually dressed in dark clothes charges up marble steps and into an infinite sea of tremendous columns. He wields the long-nozzled gun of a pressure washer, hose trailing behind and out of frame like an astronaut’s oxygen tube. This looks to be a worker on his way to do some federal power spraying, and the bland ostentation of the stage proclaims his a futile and dumb labor..."
