Title: LICHTQUELLEN Photographer: Jonathan Cuadros Publisher: Pogo Books Date of publication: March 2017 Pages: 48 pages + 4 folds Dimensions: 200mm x 280mm Edition: First Edition of 250, hand-signed & dated by the artist ISBN: 978-3-942547-59-8 Popularly a standard-bearer for freedom in post-cold war Europe as well as broiling youth culture Mecca, the Berlin in “Lichtquellen” is a black-and-white ghost town. In this visual diary, monuments, balloon animals, and passersby are transfigured by the “dark grainy abyss that one can only find in the city’s notorious winter tristesse” into alternating signifiers of isolation, hope, and sometimes humor. Cuadros’ debut collection displays a blend of shadowy urban nightscapes, candid portraiture, and off-the-cuff snaps as he explores the visual poetics of (film) photography.
Title: HORSEHEAD NEBULA Photographer: Matthieu Litt Publisher: Self-Published Date of publication: 2016 Pages: 128 + cover Dimensions: 160 x 195 mm Edition:300 ISBN: N/A Horsehead Nebula:
Over there, there are so many horses
that they don’t even bother to name them.
This area of the Faristan, wild, unknown and so fantasied about,
is a mix of beauty and harshness, landlocked between the trenches
of the mountains.
It’s a quest for the sublime, for distance, but also for the imagery
and beliefs related to its pursuit.
It’s like making a waking dream come true.
Like catching the feelings of this terrestrial paradise,
where the borders are as entangled
as the mountain ranges that define them.
It’s a state between imagination and conciseness,
between the quest and the sense of already having seen
these spaces where the people are forged by their environment.
A hesitation between mirage and the reality of what is appearing on the horizon, probably because we are more open to being surprised.

The often overlooked, unnoticed or ignored wooded places that are passed by as we go about our lives; scruffy patches in the corner of fields, by the roadside, behind industrial estates, all remnants of a once heavily wooded and valued countryside – forming parts of the edgelands; land now abandoned with no perceived use.
Every book is personally signed and hand bound by Joseph, thereby completing the creation of work from his initial moment of seeing.
