“Whenever I move to a new city on my own, I have the same sort of experience within my first few days. I go to a bar, I sit down, stumble my way through ordering a beer in whatever language is spoken (often with lots of hand gesturing) and take a look around. Inevitably, I end up with a similar scene in front of me: a couple fighting, a couple in love, an awkward date, an older man alone. In the same bar there will always be a group of young people laughing, enjoying themselves, fully comfortable with who they are and what they are doing, or at least appearing so. This is who I’m always most interested in. How did they get to be friends? What moments have they shared together to lead to that round of laughter? Who has hurt who? Do they know it? A complex algorithm of trysts and adventures, mistakes and triumphs leading to each quip, each kiss, each stare.” – Gabi Manga

The HOMOurban series developed during the years of 2007 and 2012. With its visual form, it is a continuation of the strong tradition of the snapshot, but also of Czech documentary photography from the seventies and eighties. Imrich Veber hovers around the unclear border between tendencies that are most often designated as social or subjective documentary; he does not use the technology of today, and so the form of his photographs point to an unanchored timelessness. We find here the crampedness of urban space, the solitude of an individual in the middle of a crowd, absurdity, melancholy, estrangement, an element of the miraculous – all of this – as what usually tends to characterize similar city snapshots in the tradition of documentary photography. And we may even find something more.

dienacht Publishing proudly presents: “Inner Mongolia” by Ekaterina Anokhina.
“And where is it, this place?”
“That’s the point, it is nowhere. It is quite impossible to say that it is located anywhere in the geographical sense. Inner Mongolia is not called that because it is inside Mongolia. It is inside anyone who can see the void, although the word ‘inside’ is quite inappropriate here. And it is not really any kind of Mongolia either, that’s merely a way of speaking. The most stupid thing possible would be to attempt to describe to you what it is. Take my word for this, at least – it is well worth striving all your life to reach it. And nothing in life is better than being there.”
“And how does one come to see the void?”
“Look into yourself.” said the baron.
(From “Chapayev and Void” by Victor Pelevin, translated by Andrew Bromfield)

Trier West is considered to be a disadvantaged suburban area with a high rate of unemployment and a lot of low cost housing which was developed from a former barracks.
In spite of various social problems, Trier West is a very lively neighborhood, not least because of its many young and restless people. All know each other, families stick together, and the inhabitants love their neighborhood.
Social life takes place on the street with the neighbors and in the summer months -people sit in front of their houses and chat with passers-by. Kids rush up and down the streets with bikes and greet everyone passing their way, and feed upon the demolished gumball machine.
The street called Trierweilerweg is a kind of passage between downtown Trier and Trier West, which you walk through to get to the low cost houses. I lived in this street for two years, and during this time I documented the everyday life of the 150 meter street section I could see from my window.

“During 2012 I walked over 3,500 kilometres with the aim of creating a body of work which would explore the idea of long-distance walking as a form of meditation and personal transformation. My intention was to create a series of quiet, meditative images, which would evoke the experience of being immersed in nature and capture the essence of the journey. The images seek to engage the viewer in this walk, and to communicate a sense of the subtle internal and psychological changes which one may undergo while negotiating the landscape.”
