dienacht Publishing proudly presents: Deep Inside by Tatiana Tcherkezyan

Feeling offcast. Flecks of ash fill the air. Slowly, they lie down to my feet. Somewhere inside there is something that destroys, it attracts those indifferent and closed. Others. Those unable to coexist, emotionally impenetrable. The same as me. Deep inside there is the void where light disappears.

The regular edition is sold out. A few copies of the Special Edition with Print are still available (for a preview of the print, please check the last image of the slideshow).

Hard cover, open thread stitching, laser engraving on the cover, 11 x 15,5 cm, 52 pages including 4 fold-out pages, full colour, print run: 90 copies + 10 Special Edition with Print, signed and numbered

Ekaterina Anokhina: Inner Mongolia (2nd Edition)

If the paper of the first edition made the book look a coal mine, the paper of this second edition makes it look like a desert storm.

“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)

Calin Kruse – You scared the shit out of me, so I’m leaving

Erotic fairs are probably the only events where all social classes and ages are gathered in the same place.

The visitors – exactly from the hick town where all the pictures were shot – brim over with bigotry. Because on one hand there is the hypocritical tolerance and openness at night, the meat market – and the gazes! – under the cover of eroticism. On the other hand the smooth smugness reveals in the daytime – lived family idyll and dominical church going included.

It is all about schizo provincialism. The abandon and unleashing of the bourgeois which seem enormous at first, in closer inspection keeps exactly within the defined limits. Because in this loud, piercing, adrenalized carnival of drives, the excess is planned. Like that everything is in best order. In the garden plot, on the parking lane, in the frontyard – and in fact also on the erotic fair.

A zine I like: Rodrigo Miragaia – Twisted Swan

Twisted Swan is a book of tensions. Clarity and visual pollution. Identity and concealment. Kindness and aggressiveness. An artificial lake, made at our image. There are repeated attempts to achieve results. Processes. Obsessions. Trifles. A certain desperation. Urgency to act. Urgency of living. Photographs of photographs. Generations of photographs. Images degrade. Lose the illusion. They disappoint. But gains a new body, with wrinkles and scars, an imposed time. The image becomes opaque. The perspective is a triangle. There is now only a smear of ink and traces of an abusive handling. A new silence.

Luca Lupi: Landscapes | Portfolio

The project, Landscapes, consists of a series of photographs taken from the sea that represent large areas of the coast. Views together the images suggest a continuous view of the coast as a single extended landscape, seemingly real, the photographic in fact they are not consecutive but far from each other and different places and subjects such as: walls, trees, cities, forests, beaches, industrial zones, but all connected to the same height of the horizon and from the same point of view.

The images are “modular”, they could be moved and rearranged in different visual sequences to form endless landscapes. The objective of the project is to reflect on the complex and continuous transformations of the places, the relationship between the built and the natural giving form our contemporary world.

Fabien Pio: The blurred colors of past days | Portfolio

Fabien Pio is a french photographer, former student at the Fine Arts school of Montpellier.

My pictures are made of daily wanderings, in order to use the photographic medium as a way to write the simple things of life, like a diary, an everyday notebook. And through this, trying to evoke a cinematographic and literary language, according to an essential place to the narrative of the pictures. This is like an autobiography, representing oneself through the others and the things that happen to everyone, based on a latent reality, or maybe an underlying fiction, at the same time intimate and universal, sketched between dream and reality, an everlasting ambiguity in between presence and absence.

Miron Zownir: The Valley of the Shaodow

Place and time are irrelevant in Miron’s book. Pictures, taken 30 years apart, face each other and look as if between them were not decades but a pan shot. Also if they were taken in New York, Berlin, Bucharest or Moscow is completely marginal. The pictures tell about abysses and hidden things – or about normality, depending on the point of view. About bloody party excesses and calm, nearly classical street scenes, sex orgies and religious ecstasy, victims of alcohol and dead or alive celebrities, misery and vitality, beggars and performing artists. Sounds as if all this could not be reconciled but however: Miron Zownir manages, and shows by this unity how similar we all are. No matter what we are, where, and when. It is one of the greatest books about people, I have seen for a long time.

Gustavo Alemán: (No) Soy de aquí

The area Gustavo comes from (Murcia) must be a bizarre place with problems of identity and absurd countrysides. Or, even more likely: Gustavo is a sharp-eyed observer who reveals things not matching easily but giving distinction to our every day lives, without us recognizing them.

You cannot put your finger on why his pictures are attractive and repellent at the same time. It is more about a feeling – you instantly understand what he wants to say; somethings does not fit in; and: human being per se are strange beings. The pictures as well could be a Hispanic version of Michael Schmidt’s pictures in “Irgendwo” [“Somewhere”]. Anyway it is fun to dunk into the book, also because it sharpens the personal perception of our environment.
