Desert Birds
€ 25.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Ein Cockpit weist in eine endlose Wüstenlandschaft; eine Gangway steht inmitten einer verlassenen Weite, zeigt gen Himmel und scheint auf Flugzeuge zu warten, die nicht mehr fliegen, auf Passagiere, die nicht mehr kommen. In den kilometerweiten Wüsten im Südwesten der USA stehen hunderte von stillgelegten und ausrangierten Flugmaschinen auf Halde und blicken ihrem Schicksal entgegen. Während man ihnen sonst stets in der Betriebsamkeit der Flughäfen dieser Welt begegnet, als Zentren in einem Geflecht von Aktivitäten, trifft man sie hier in der absoluten Einsamkeit. Kein Mensch weit und breit, keine Infrastruktur, keine Bewegung. Nicht künstliche Materialien wie Beton, Teer, Stahl oder Glas prägen die Szenerie, stattdessen Sand, ein paar vereinzelte Gräser und Steine. Werner Bartsch konzentriert sich in seinen Fotografien auf das Neue, das entsteht wenn gewohnte Beziehungen von Objekt und Umgebung aufgelöst werden. Seine Arbeiten zeigen die Widersprüchlichkeit zwischen dem Objekt Flugzeug und dem Kontext der Wüste sowie die Spannung, die sich aus diesem Widerspruch ergibt. Das ganz spezifische Zusammenspiel von Farben und Formen,die Stimmung des Lichts und die Endlosigkeit der kargen Flächen ergänzen sich zu einer einzigartigen Ästhetik, in der die Faszination, die von diesen Orten und Objekten ausgeht, spürbar wird. Diese Fotografien sind keine Bestandsaufnahme ausrangierter Fliegertypen, keine Dokumentation von Lagerplätzen und Flugzeugfriedhöfen - sie sind eine Hommage an unzählige Stunden in den Lüften und weite Reisen, an Pioniergeist und menschliche Imagination. Die Aufnahmen für die Serie ´´Desert Birds´´ entstanden auf den großflächigen Flugzeuglagerplätzen im Südwesten der USA, die normalerweise strengstens von der Aussenwelt abgeschottet sind und für dieses Projekt die Tore öffneten.

The Asylum of the Birds
€ 27.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Asylum of the Birds is a new body of work by Roger Ballen, one of the most original image-makers of our times. Ballen has always sought to push the boundaries of photographic practice and has created an aesthetic and artistic vision unlike any other contemporary photographer. The images in Asylum of the Birds have been photographed entirely within the confines of a house in a Johannesburg suburb, the location of which remains a tightly guarded secret. The inhabitants of the house, both people and animals, and most notably the ever-present birds, are the cast who perform within a sculptural and decorated theatrical interior that Ballen creates and orchestrates. The resulting images are painterly, complex and surreal. They are richly layered with graffiti, drawings, animals and found objects. In a world where photographers seek to avoid definition, and whose work is often banal, Ballen is a true original who not only defies genres, but has defined his own artistic space as well.

Airtropolis
€ 39.90 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Airtropolis, das neue Projekt des Fotografen Werner Bartsch, beschäftgt sich mit dem urbanen Raum eines Großflughafens, zeigt Details aus diesem komplexen Kosmos und bewegt sich frei in eingezä untem Land. Die Fotografien nehmen Bezug auf seine mit großem Erfolg publizierte Serie Desert Birds (Kehrer 2010), die sich mit den Flugzeugfriedhoefen im Südwesten der USA auseinandersetzt. A hnlich wie Desert Birds ist Airtropolis keine Bestandsaufnahme des Offenkundigen, sondern eine subjektive fotografisch teils sachliche, teils abstrakte Interpretation. Die modernen Flughafen-Metropolen sind Knotenpunkte einer globalisierten Welt. Die kontinuierliche Bewegung und ständige Positionsveränderung stehen ganz im Zeichen unserer Zeit. Jeder internationale Hub hat ähnliche Herausforderungen: stetig wachsendes Passagier- und Frachtaufkommen, Terrorabwehr nach 9/11, Fluglärm und Treibhausgase. Gleichzeitig aber ermöglicht es uns dieser Ort, Distanzen räumliche sowie geistige zu überwinden, fungiert als gemeinsames Universum zahlloser Menschen unterschiedlichster Kulturen und ist Ausgangspunkt eines Jeden für Aufbrüche in eine andere Zeit.

Simply Beautiful Photographs
€ 23.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

National Geographic Simply Beautiful Photographs takes readers on a spectacular visual journey through some of the most stunning photographs to be found in National Geographic´s famed Image Collection. Award-winning photographer Annie Griffiths culled the images to reflect the many variations on the universal theme of beauty. Chapters are organized around the aesthetic concepts that create beauty in a photograph: Light, Composition, Moment (Gesture and Emotion), Motion, Palette, and Wonder. Beyond the introduction and brief essays about each featured concept, the text is light. The photographs speak for themselves, enhanced by lyrical quotes from scholars and poets. In the chapter on Light, for example, we read these words of whimsical wisdom from songwriter Leonard Cohen: ´´Ring the bells that still can ring. Forget your perfect offering. There is a crack in everything. That´s how the lights get in.´´ And then the images flow, of light entering scenes through windows, clouds, and spotlights, from above, alongside, and behind, casting radiance upon young ballerinas and weathered men, into groves of autumn trees and island-dotted seas, revealing everything it touches to be beautiful beyond expectation. To illuminate the theme of Wonder, Griffiths chose a wish from Andre Bazin: ´´If I had influence with the good fairy...I should ask that her gift to each child in the world be a sense of wonder so indestructible that it would last throughout life.´´ This thought is juxtaposed with an exquisite vision in white, a frame filled with the snowy-pure dots and rays of a bird´s fan tail. And on it goes, picture after tantalizing picture, alive with wondrous beauty. When she created National Geographic Simply Beautiful Photographs, Annie Griffiths set two goals: to maximize visual delight, and to create a book unique in the world of publishing-one in which many of the photographs could be purchased as prints. She has succeeded on both counts. Many of these stunning images are available for order, and there can be no doubt as to the visual delight. You must open this book for yourself, and take in its radiant beauty.

In Endangered , the result of an extraordinary multiyear project to document the lives of threatened species, acclaimed photographer Tim Flach explores one of the most pressing issues of our time. Traveling around the world-to settings ranging from forest to savannah to the polar seas to the great coral reefs-Flach has constructed a powerful visual record of remarkable animals and ecosystems facing harsh challenges. Among them are primates coping with habitat loss, big cats in a losing battle with human settlements, elephants hunted for their ivory, and numerous bird species taken as pets. With eminent zoologist Jonathan Baillie providing insightful commentary on this ambitious project, Endangered unfolds as a series of vivid, interconnected stories that pose gripping moral dilemmas, unforgettably expressed by more than 180 of Flach´s incredible images.
