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..."

The Austin, Texas-based photographer chats to us about his recently-released book Federal Triangle. Produced over three years while Mike was equipped with a press credential, the series provides a brief insight into how “the proverbial sausage gets made.”

Mike Osborne - Federal Triangle

Een ondoordringbare plaats van mysterie, gevaar en desoriëntatie. Banaal maar intrigerend, en soms donker komisch, deze glimpen van macht leidden tot een cascade van vragen.

Federal Triangle stelt dit soort vragen in beeld. Alledaagse scènes zijn getint met de mogelijkheid van geweld en samenzwering. Terwijl ze meer achterhouden dan ze onthullen, nodigen de foto's projecties uit die spreken van de angst, twijfel, disfunctie en absurditeit van het huidige moment in het Amerikaanse politieke leven.
