ART GoSee Book Tip : Michael Joseph 'Lost & Found' - the story of American wanderlust, told through portraits of travelers, appearing at Kehrer Publishing

07.02.2024 • Lost & Found’ documents a contemporary American subculture of young travelers through raw, striking portraiture and intimate storytelling. These travelers, as they are referred to, abandon home to move around the country by hitchhiking and freight train hopping in a nomadic, transient existence outside of mainstream society. On their personal journey, driven by wanderlust, escapism, or a search for transient jobs, they find a new family in their traveling friends. The high of freedom, however, does not come without consequence.

Like graffiti on the walls of the city streets they inhabit and the trains they ride, their bodies and faces become the visual storybook of their lives. Their clothing is often a mismatch of found items. Jackets, pants and vests are self-made like a patchwork quilt, using fabric pieces of a fellow traveler’s clothing embellished by metal bottle caps, buttons, safety pins, lighter parts, syringe caps, and patches.

Joseph’s black and white portraits are made in public, on the street, using natural light. His portraits reveal the human condition. They capture...

ART GoSee Tip : Barbara Wolff ‘NEW YORK, SIDEWALK CLOSED’ black & white photographs from New York (2023), appearing at Publishing House LUNIK Berlin

29.01.2024 • Following the success of the ‘METROPOLIS, BERLIN’ photo book – which received the German Photo Book Award in Silver in 2021/22 – photographer Barbara Wolff and Publishing House Lunik Berlin are now presenting their second photo book, ‘NEW YORK, SIDEWALK CLOSED’.

The photographs were taken during a month-long stay in New York in June, 2023. In almost timeless black and white photographs, the photographer shows us the New York of today, as a post-pandemic city that is rising after a dark and destructive time. For her stay, she chose accommodation in four of New York’s boroughs, enabling her to find perspectives in the transition between different environments. She wandered around the big city with light camera equipment – at times accompanied by local photographers who contacted her through her daily Instagram posts. And precisely these followers pushed her photo stories forward.

A much photographed city, she was nonetheless able to wrest her own images with her very own take on the breadth and depth of New York. Indeed, the precision of her imagery reveals many levels of New York...

ART GoSee Book Tip : JBE Books publishes three books with raw photographs by Lina Scheynius – in a limited edition including a signed print

20.12.2023 • Intimacy – in all its depth and truth; too raw for social networks, finds its place in three new books, with the distinctive signature of Lina Scheynius. Following publication of the boxed edition containing her first 11 photographic autobiographies in 2019, Lina Scheynius returns to JBE Books to publish the books in individual volumes: Opuses 12, 13 and 14 of the My Photo Books collection. These books are an invitation to witness the everyday, but also to encounter and transcend many formal constraints.

With sincere honesty and an informal naturalness, Lina Scheynius captures scenes from her everyday life. In a revealing, voyeuristic approach, she documents intimate moments, private relationships or even herself. The result is a unique, deeply personal visual diary symbolizing the zeitgeist of our time, whisking viewers away and into the artist’s intimate space. The refreshing sexual subtext and the explicit yet gracious nudity of her imagery challenges conventional theories on the passive and objectified role of women.

Lina Scheynius’ rawest book, where urgency meets decay and...
