    Renato D’Agostin – Harmony of Chaos

    Renowned for his unique style, exhibited worldwide, featured in prestigious private and public collections, and the subject of numerous best-selling publications, Renato D'Agostin's work has held a very special place in the world of photography over the years. With his new series, Harmony of Chaos, the artist raises the bar even higher, discovering new horizons. In Harmony of Chaos, Renato D'Agostin depicts the vibrancy and claustrophobia he felt in the streets of Shanghai. Far from a simple portrait of the city, he draws from this sensory experience a series that highlights the DNA of postmodern cities at large. The photographs emphasize the anonymity generated by urban structures in a controlled vocabulary that constantly plays with scale. The series gives us a glimpse of the rapid changes that have occurred in these cities and questions the place of Man in these new megacities. Theo-Mario Coppola, who wrote the preface to the book, describes the atmosphere of the series perfectly: "Abstractions of cement, blown by the wind, drowned in fog, the dense and moving facades stand out, without foundation, without sky, like immense painted backdrops of a theater set. The actors - the passers-by - come and go in this fluid mass where one moves to live. Their appearance is furtive. Their actions are made up of simple gestures, reduced to the choreography of silence and the harmony of chaos.

    Paul Cupido – Mukayu (Book + First edition)

    "An empty room will be filled with light by its emptiness. This is how the concept of "Mukayu" is defined by the Chinese philosopher Zhuangzi. Paul Cupido's recent, poetic and very intimate photographic work in Japan is inspired by this concept of "Mukayu", which also refers to "non-existence", to "things as they are". Mukayu is part of the larger philosophical concept of "Mu", which has been a source of inspiration for Paul Cupido since his first artist book Searching for Mu. Mu could be translated as "not having" or "letting go". Through his images, Paul Cupido explores the themes of emptiness, metamorphosis, transience, and ephemerality in relation to our emotional experiences. His images, true visual poems, sometimes melancholic and surrealist, question our relationship to reality and our ability to dream. His desire to understand and embrace nature permeates his work, which is nourished by his native island, Terschelling, and the bond between its inhabitants and nature. The double-booklet system allows for a multitude of image associations, printed on 4 types of paper. Mukayu is a book that offers an emotional experience, just like the artist's organic works, that can be felt, like a meditation.

    Margaret Lansink – Borders of Nothingness – On the Mend

    In Borders of Nothingness, Dutch photographer Margaret Lansink (b. 1961) explores the transitional ambiguity of her adult daughter's decision to suspend all contact with her, photographing landscapes and naked women whose ephemeral presence questions the same torment: is this the moment you left? Over time, Lansink and her daughter reconnected in an attempt to mend their relationship. Lansink then revisited and reinterpreted Borders of Nothingness to materially reflect their emotional efforts to heal. Inspired by the Japanese method of repairing broken ceramics with gold leaf, she gathers her images, tears them apart and then glues them back together with gold leaf to give hope to the possibility of recreating a bond that is all the stronger and more beautiful for having once been broken.

    Albarrán Cabrera – Pale Blue • 95.00

    Pale Blue · is a tribute to an emblematic photograph and an emblematic character, the astronomer Carl Sagan.

    This photograph is the one showing the planet Earth, taken on February 14, 1990 by the space probe Voyager 1 at a record distance of about 6 billion kilometers, part of the Family Portrait (set of photographs of the solar system taken that day). It is called A Pale Blue Dot, after the title of a book inspired by this photograph, written in 1994 by Carl Sagan, because the Earth appears in it as a tiny blue dot. The book Pale Blue - by Albarrán Cabrera is a symbolic journey starting from the origins of the planet Earth. The different layers of this Earth help humanity to better understand its own origins and evolution, and this "memory" seems to want to tell him that their destinies are inseparable, but that it is the responsibility of humanity to "preserve and cherish this pale blue dot, the only home it has ever known. Limited edition of 500 numbered copies.

    Miho Kajioka – So it goes

    This edition is a revised and simplified version of the 2019 Nadar Prize winning book so it goes. In this book, Miho Kajioka presents work relating to the concepts of time, memory, and place. As in her previous works, the series reveals intuitive images of fragments of her everyday life, in different eras. Miho Kajioka's interest in this subject was sparked by reading Kurt Vonnegut's novel Slaughterhouse-five. Miho Kajioka has long been fascinated by the chronology and meaning of events. According to her, photography captures moments and freezes them; displaying impressions is like playing with the sense of time and getting lost in that chronology.

    Casper Faassen – Recollection

    I remember drawing the athletes I admired, sunsets on vacation, or paintings like Rembrandt's "The Night Watch". Since my early childhood, it has been a way for me to assimilate moments of connection, to understand what makes these impressions precious. And today, in searching for 'life' or 'stillness' in a still life, I feel more than ever that I am stopping time, by enclosing these objects that belong or once belonged to collectors, artists, scientists or museums. By their mere presence, each object brings its own story. By focusing on the time, spirit and value of these objects, I began to integrate Japanese beliefs and philosophies such as animism, kintsugi or mono no aware into my work. Between my studio in Leiden and working on my collection and Japan, I inevitably crossed paths with Dr. Philipp Franz von Siebold who had lived in Leiden and Dejima in the 19th century. He had started collecting flora and fauna for scientific purposes but soon his project had grown and he had created his own Japanese cultural center: The Siebold House. And although I do not physically own most of the objects in this book, they are now all part of my collection: I surround myself with old Jomon vases, rare ginger pots from the Edo period, and wisteria plants brought to the Hortus Botanicus garden in Leiden by von Siebold. I rework, add my language, question and admire. I remember.
