(Please scroll down for english version) Das Buch zur Triennale der Photographie Hamburg 2018. Seit 1999 gibt dieses große internationale Festival (mit ca. 80 Ausstellungen und über 300 Künstlern) alle drei Jahre einen Überblick über zeitgenössische Entwicklungen künstlerischer und dokumentarischer Fotografie. Die großen Hamburger Ausstellungseinrichtungen (Kunsthalle, Museum für Kunst & Gewerbe, Deichtorhallen etc,) nehmen mit eigenen Ausstellungen an der Triennale teil. Der Untertitel des Buches ist auch die inhaltliche Klammer, der von Krzysztof Candrowicz kuratierten Veranstaltung. Die Welt im 21. Jahrhundert ist geprägt von sich ständig beschleunigenden Veränderungsprozessen, die Menschheit befindet sich aktuell in einer gewaltigen Umbruchsituation. Digitalisierung, Klimawandel, Migrationsströme, Bevölkerungsexplosion und Globalisierung verlangen nach neuen Lösungen und Denkansätzen. Unter dem Motto ´´Breaking Point. Searching for Change´´ greift die 7. Triennale der Photographie Hamburg diese Debatte auf. Welche Antworten können Künstler in die Diskussionen einbringen? Welche Aufgaben hat die Fotografie? Die in diesem Buch versammelten Arbeiten sowie die Texte der Autoren und Museumskuratoren haben sich diesen Herausforderungen angenommen und reflektieren das Thema ´´Breaking Point´´ höchst komplex, anregend und ideenreich. The book to the 2018 Triennale of Photography Hamburg. Every three years since 1999, this large international festival (with ca. 80 exhibitors and over 300 artists) presents an overview of contemporary developments in artistic and documentary photography. The large Hamburg exhibition institutions (Kunsthalle, Museum für Kunst & Gewerbe, Deichtorhallen, etc.) participate in the Triennale with their own exhibitions. The book´s subtitle is also the contextual focus of the event curated by Krzysztof Candrowicz. The world in the twenty-first century is characterized by constantly accelerating processes of change; mankind is currently undergoing an enormous phase of upheaval. Digitalization, climate change, waves of migration, population explosion, and globalization demand new solutions and ways of thinking. Under the motto ´´Breaking Point: Searching for Change,´´ the seventh Triennale of Photography Hamburg takes up this debate. What answers can artists contribute to the discussion? What are the tasks of photography? The works collected in this book as well as the texts by the authors and museum curators have taken up these challenges and reflect on the subject of the ´´breaking point´´ in a manner that is highly complex, imaginative, and inspiring.
´´When I was born, I came home to my grandfather´s house. His name was Morris Cohen. He was my mother´s father. I lived with him for three years until my parents built a small little house and we moved away. But from the time I was born until he died when I was 19, I either spoke to him or saw him every day. He owned a hardware store that catered to plumbers, electricians, woodworkers, contractors. It was an early version of a contractors´ supply store. It was called ´The Save Supply Company.´ He was a very large man, and he felt he could do anything with his hands. He made tables, he fixed automobiles, he was an electrician, and he was lousy at all of it. But through sheer force of will, he forged ahead.´´ Jim Dine
In the summer of 2013 photographer Catherine Balet and her friend, the stylist Ricardo Martinez Paz, were at the Arles Photography Festival in the South of France. Balet had often been amused by Ricardo´s resemblance to Picasso and had always intended to recreate Robert Doisneau´s famous image of the painter with loaves for fingers. The publication of these initial images on their Facebook pages aroused such enthusiasm that it prompted them to develop the work. Now three years later the series extends to over 120 images spanning the whole history of photography.

From 1977 to 1985, Goldberg photographed the wealthy and destitute of San Francisco, creating a visual document that has since become a landmark work. Through the combination of text and photographs, Rich and Poor s mass appeal was instantly recognizable. In 1984 the series was exhibited alongside Robert Adams and Joel Sternfeld in the Three Americans exhibition at MoMA, and was published the following year by Random House. Out of print since 1985, Jim Goldberg s Rich and Poor has been completely re-designed and expanded by the artist for Steidl. Available for the first time in hardcover, Rich and Poor builds upon the classic combination of photographs and handwriting and adds a surplus of vintage material and contemporary photographs that have never been published or exhibited. The photographs in Rich and Poor constitute a shocking and gripping portrait of America during the 70 s and 80 s that remains just as relevant today.
One of the foremost American photographers of the twentieth century, Harry Callahan explored the expressive possibilities of both color and black-and-white photography from the outset of his career in 1938. Following his retirement from teaching at the Rhode Island School of Design in 1977, however, he decided to dedicate his practice exclusively to the color medium and pursue travel to foreign locales. The twenty-three photographs in this publication, taken in Morocco in 1981, are the product of Callahan´s shift to a strictly chromatic palette and demonstrate his continued interest in the visual intrigue of the everyday urban landscape and the passersby who occupy it. Depicting his familiar subjects of architectural facades, random patterns of street activity, and isolated fi gures lost in thought, the images transcend Morocco´s exoticism by exploring the formal and pictorial potential of the country´s environment.
When a few of these photographs first appeared in the National Geographic magazine January 2009 issue, they were hailed as an arresting reminder of the hundreds of species teetering on the brink of final extinction-more than 1,200 animals and plants in all. Now, in Rare, Joel Sartore and National Geographic present 80 iconic images, representing a lifelong commitment to the natural world and a three-year investigation into the Endangered Species Act and the creatures it exists to protect. This book will give readers not only a broader understanding of the history and purpose of the Endangered Species Act, but also an intimate look at the very species it seeks to preserve. With stunning up-close portraits on every page, this important volume evokes sympathetic wonder at the vast and amazing array of plants and animals still in need of protection. Itself a creation of particular beauty, Rare offers eloquent proof that a picture really is worth a thousand words as it shows us, one after another, scores of uniquely remarkable and seriously threatened life-forms. It is a compelling story and a many-faceted, brilliant jewel of a book.
These three volumes of Tom Wood´s new work, Landscapes, are drawn from the artist´s extensive unseen and unpublished landscape work. The first volume concentrates on Wood´s photographs made in response to the West of Ireland, County Mayo, the landscape of his birthplace and childhood and an area he has returned to as an artist almost every year since 1975. Taken over decades, views of this wild and remote landscape, many of them glimpsed from the car, bus or train during his journeys there, are combined with fragile fragments of surviving family photographs, video stills, and intimate and affectionate portraits of day-to-day life within a rural community. The second volume consists of Wood´s landscapes predominantly made within Merseyside, where he lived and worked for 25 years, from 1978-2003. In this more urban environment, his landscapes encompass pictures of people´s homes and gardens, parks, wastelands, and the river Mersey. Wood moved to Wales in 2003 to address what he has referred to as ´´the matter of landscape.´´ His open and experimental approach to photography means he is constantly pushing its formal and conceptual possibilities. Selected from the photographs he has been making in Wales, the third volume is the most formally abstract of the three books and includes many photographs taken with a panoramic camera - complex, optically rich pictures with multiple points of view and focus.
