Photography

In need of any ideas while staying at home this winter? Why not read this exceptional – and loooong – interview about five friends who used their spring lock-down time rather wisely for the last refinements of their magazine. The very first issue of Superposition is about nothing else than the 'Hardcore Home'. This wild hodgepodge of absurd and compelling home narratives with an architectural touch – and a beautiful layout - will take you into the hidden, obscure notions of your beloved Home sweet Home!

Please note: You are about to enter the cosmos of Mirage. A sensual exploration of a feeling, maybe an attitude, embedded in paper and created by the German Graphic Designer and Art Director Frank Rocholl who happened to stand in front of the Kloofhill house, Cape Town. Its owner, South African Filmmaker and Photographer Henrik Purienne, remembers: „Eye for detail for sure. Casual chat. Common interests.“ That was that. What followed were four issues of Mirage (2009-2014), JamaisVu. Mirage Anthology. (2016), a side project by Purienne Jeux de Peaux (2019) all filled with vast horizons, deep blue seawater, endless Summer pool-side days, beautiful women, fast vintage cars, timeless design classics…Sounds too cliche? Well, we agree. But though, Mirage is filled with outwardly alluring phenomena it does prove that beautiful and glossy doesn't equal superficiality. Buy

While temperatures dropping and leaves already start to fall, we got gifted with a printed never ending summer! After years Mirage Magazine is back with a fifth issue and we could not be more excited!⁠ There is something about the hedonistic lifestyle of the 60s and 70s: The French Riviera, Brigitte Bardot, Gunter Sachs, a seemingly never-ending fun, unfussy, intellectual but easy, moonlight baths, parties, naps in the hammock, artists, musicians, driving a classic car along the coastline, sailing, dancing on the terrace, reading by the pool - and everything in front of a backdrop of modernist architecture and eclectic interiors. ⁠Mirage Magazine, the brain child of Henrik Purienne, mixes nostalgic pictures from this wild era and contemporary photoshoots of beautiful woman with the same easiness into a bohemian futurism of glistening skin.⁠ Btw we still have some of the mirage books Jamais Vu left.⁠⠀ Buy...

When would be a better time to think about what beehives look like in other countries than while enjoying your Sunday roll with honey. Anyway, if you thought hives were these wooden boxes all over the world, you couldn't be more wrong. There are small houses with straw roofs, fully carved wooden soldiers with open mouths as entrances, vertical clay hives and baskets hanging in trees. And all this so that you can enjoy your bread with honey. And butter. Buy...

Drain pipes seem to be pretty straight forward. They catch the rain and purge it away from the house into the garden or onto the street. But as closer they get to the ground as more random their form becomes - going around corners, following stairs, twisting, circling, breaking off...

It's big, it's beautiful - it can only be Carcy. As always, the new issue is filled cover to cover with stunning photographs that ask us to reconsider our received ideas of beauty, intimacy and eroticism. Not only that.

We're looking forward to experiencing them.⁠ Buy...

Wild, rocky cliffs along deserted coasts, empty streets between abandoned houses captured in the break of dawn...

Brooklyn is one of the most dynamic and ethnically diverse places on the planet. In fact, it’s estimated that one in every eight US families had relatives come through Brooklyn when settling in the country. ⁠Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb have been photographing this New York City borough for the past five years, creating a profound and vibrant portrait. Alex Webb has traversed every corner of the borough, exploring its tremendous diversity. This parallels his work made in the past forty years, traveling to photograph different cultures around the world—all of which are represented in the place he now calls home. Contrasting with this approach, Rebecca Norris Webb photographed “the city within the city within the city,” the green heart of Brooklyn—the Botanic Garden, GreenWood Cemetery, and Prospect Park, where Brooklynites of all walks of life cross paths as they find solace. Together, their photographs of Brooklyn tell a larger American story, one that touches on immigration, identity, and home.⁠ Buy...

In Ukrainian trains, it is a tradition that after boarding, passengers put on more comfortable clothes, change their shoes into slippers or lie barefoot, have dinner and a drink - and all this in cramped compartments. ⁠With her experience as a train conductor, Julie Poly has captured the essence of travel on Ukrainian trains. Documentary photos of train decorations and staged photos of models representing typical passengers of the Ukrainian railway - Julie Poly calls this approach "pseudo-documentary", because the inspiration for the staged photos comes from real people and situations. Among the passengers are soldiers, business women, gigolos and athletes, mostly girls, on their way to a sports competition. Most of the photos in the book can be described as erotic. This is due to the specific atmosphere in the Ukrainian trains and their perception by the artist. "I believe that travelling by train in Ukraine is a rather erotic experience. Nowhere in the world you will find trains where half-naked people travel together side by side," says Julie Poly.⁠ The notions of privacy and personal boundaries are dim in the train light...
