The challenging project of Bleu is to translate Alix Marie’s three-dimensional approach to photography into book form. Marie’s practice merges sculpture, photography and installation. Her work explores our relationship to bodies and its representation through processes of objectification, fragmentation, magnification and accumulation.

altblog – Paul Mpagi Sepuya – Darkroom

For Paul Mpagi Sepuya, his medium is as much about disclosure as concealment, the role of the photographer ultimately one of control. Central to his practice is the undisguised and frequently experimental use of mirrors, which draws the viewer’s attention to the images’ photographic artifice, complicating the experience of looking at a subject, while also engendering a mystifying effect.

αστάρια | Amorces,
 notre co-édition avec l’artiste Michel Mazzoni, est officiellement présentée en France, à partir d’aujourd’hui, par les Éditions Énigmatiques au Cosmos Arles Books.

« αστάρια » (Amorces) est un projet auquel Michel Mazzoni a travaillé pendant des années, par étapes successives, et parfois dans le même temps que l’édition de ses autres livres. Ce nouvel opus éclaire la genèse respective des précédents autant qu’il nous montre la quintessence de la recherche de l’auteur comme pratique artistique. C’est aussi bien un retour qu’un nouveau commencement avec des allées-venues inattendues. Dans ce livre, les images se côtoient sur le principe du télescopage et de l’écho avec des fac-similés de textes scientifiques. L’utilisation d’un papier bible permet de révéler le fantôme de chaque image.

  • Édition limitée à 300 exemplaires — 48 euros

Images that have been published in American newspapers and magazines from the 1920s to 1970s are Thomas Ruff’s source material for his press++ series, images that in themselves have even more diverse archival origins; the police, NASA, press agencies and press departments of institutions, to name a few. From the 1930s onwards, most of the photographs were no longer sent by mail from the press agency to the newspapers but instead sent as a wire and were then printed out by the newspaper, therefore showing the structure of the wire transmission.

To produce these works, Ruff scans the front and back of each photograph and combines them digitally, taking into account the original image as well as crops, touch-ups, date stamps, scribbles and smudges. Each of these marks varies in line, colour, and implement used; a red stamp, an inky blue fingerprint, a biro squiggle. Ruff has commented how photo-editors at the newspapers had little respect for the photograph, significantly altering the look and meaning of the original with their retouching and comments. Despite how invisible the hand of the editor is typically made to seem, here they are placed front and centre.

altblog — Cléo Totti
In the recent book ‘Cannibalism: A perfectly natural history’ by American researcher Bill Schutt we can read that cannibalism is not that unusual as one would expect. Humans consumed each other for centuries and not only on some far away exotic island but also here in Europe. And the reason of doing so was not only overpopulation or starvation which makes it even more odd. But also in the natural world animals from every class eat each other…
With works by Aline Bouvy, Joachim Coucke, Olga Fedorova, Indrikis Gelzis, Erin Jane Nelson, Anna Solal, Cleo Totti and Tom Volkaert.
