Kiritin Beyer – Kutch Interiors Kutch is a mysterious land, not easy to comprehend, surrounded by the Gulf of Kutch and the Arabian Sea in south and west, while northern and eastern parts are Pakistan and Rajasthan, India, the land is isolated and rests on a vast expanse of salty clay and a flat desert. The Kutch culture and identity is a fusion between numerous nomadic tribes. as a result of this cultural diversity the culture of the Kutch and peoples have created a strong craft and art tradition. Each element of their everyday life centers around art and beauty, the mud houses are called Bhungas. The design of many traditional Bhungas demonstrate the ecological, social and the aesthetic aspects of the region through color and imagery, Bhungas are a true wonders of art, the inner walls are inlaid with tiny mirrors and the ceilings are a vivid mixture of colorful strips. We live with style in our everyday life, chasing the ideas of fashion on a high-end scale but for the Kutch style is a way of life, traditionally they live to create something unique and wonderful.”Kiritin_Beyer_02 Kiritin_Beyer_01

Daniel Gentelev – Into the night “This series began in wandering in the nights of the city that i temporary live, Berlin. I was exposed to random places and events that i attended by watching people going out and change their characters and i have been observe by their desire and trasformation. Nights in the big cities is always a seductive place. I just can say that is very much it. you walk, you hit one place or another and you get hint about something and it’s has to catch your self instinct. The unknown is always work much better for the process.”Man with red mask _ 2015 Horse racing _ 2013

Allan GraingerIn This Place  “These tableaux are of celebrated cultural locations in Europe. Well known places generally have a collective cultural consciousness. People arrive at these places with some idea of what they will find there. It is this perception that I want to challenge by presenting to the beholder things that might escape natural vision, or to quote Walter Benjamin ‘to allow the camera to introduce us to unconscious optics. I mostly work with the tableau form as I consider this to be the most effective means of constructing a visual mapping of a place. I am interested in the way people move through or inhabit a space, and how their presence impacts on or reinforces the meaning of a place. My tableaux bring together a coexistence of circumstances that would be impossible to find within a single frame. Each tableau is in fact a kind of ‘electronic montage reenactment of a public performance.

Ani ZurFertility “In ‘Fertility’ series the author turns to mythology and daily graft of ancient women in Slavic culture to reconsider the role of a woman in the modern society. Brought up in matriarchal family, the author have been  hooting women from her nearest round-up, relatives and daughters for 4 years; she also appears as a hero in the one of photos in a try to live out the ancestors’ experience, to feel the sacral dispensation of a primeval woman, to retrace her secret connection with the Earth. Also being partly a try to find self identity, the work on ‘Fertility’ series makes the author to reflect on ‘female mission’ and an intuitive part of a female self, gradually lost with civilization development. Images does not only demonstrate bare female essence, opening it layer by layer; they reveal the uncertain perceptions about female purpose in the modern world.[…]”8 1
