collaboration To acknowledge the team efforts that often go into works of photography, GUP #38 is all about a revival in the wisdom of ‘1+1=3’. The contemporary practice of photography demonstrates that the medium can be so much more than just the physical end product of solitary artists’ endeavours. Of course, collaborations between artists is nothing new in itself, but there seems to be a trend emerging in photography which suggests a collective rethinking of the individual enterprise. There are many ways to manifest the idea of more than one ‘author’. Besides the most straightforward approach of multiple photographers working together, collaborative photography can also include a joint effort with the model, a performer or someone working in another discipline. It can even mean a contribution from you, the audience! Additionally, we’re happy to include 64 pages, making for five extra portfolios excerpted from Foto Folio: a retrospective publication highlighting some of the best magazine features since the mid-1960s, arriving from five renowned Dutch photographers. The Foto Folio books will be launched this autumn, but we can already bring to you a sneak preview! Erik Vroons, Chief Editor

Dream in the forest

© Ata Kandó

by Ata Kandó

Hardcover with dust jacket 44 pages 215 x 270 mm xpublishers, 2013 ISBN 9789081892827 € 40 Dutch with English/Hungarian insert

In 1957, Ata Kandó’s book Droom in het woud (Dream in the forest) was published, a photo-fantasy featuring her three children. Ata travelled with them through the European Alps to shoot the series. The stunning, dreamy and sometimes mystical scenes are shot in perfect black and white and, mainly because of this, the book sold out and has been a collector’s item ever since. Now, to celebrate Ata’s 100th birthday, we are privileged and honoured to re-issue the book in a limited edition of a thousand copies, with English and Hungarian translations. The book is available now for pre-order from, and will be publicly available from September 1st through GUP Gallery and various renowned international bookshops.

Photofile Eikoh Hosoe, Kamaitachi by Marc Feustel Over the course of a career spanning more than fifty years, Eikoh Hosoe has developed a genuinely singular photographic vision. His style integrates several different disciplines: theatre, dance, film and traditional Japanese art are all essential components of his work. It is at the crossroads of these various disciplines and through his collaborations with the artists from these different worlds that Hosoe finds inspiration and the essence of his greatest series. Perhaps his greatest collaboration of all took place with the dancer Tatsumi Hijikata, one of the founders of the avant-garde dance movement known as Butoh.

Hosoe began his photographic career in the 1950s, a time when documentary realism was the norm in Japanese photographic circles. In the post-war years, the ‘objectivity’ of documentary photography provided photographers with an essential way of bearing witness to the effects of the massive destruction of the Pacific War and particularly the horrors of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. This was a time when the identity of the Japanese nation had been thrown into question following the country’s defeat in World War II, the destruction of the myth of the emperor and the US occupation that followed. In the face of such turbulent changes, many young photographers of Hosoe’s generation felt the need to develop new photographic approaches to account for the new world in which they suddenly found themselves. But while his contemporaries sought to renew the documentary genre to present a personal and subjective reality of the real world, Hosoe chose to completely abandon the dominant documentary style to develop an approach based on a deep sense of experimentation and freedom. His photographic method was characterised not only by its blend of dreams, fantasy and reality, but also by a revolutionary baroque visual style. In a country known for its minimalist, at times austere aesthetic, Hosoe’s images shook up the Japanese photography scene. By using mythology, metaphor and symbolism, he has created images beyond the limits of traditional photography. But what set Hosoe even further apart from his contemporaries was his ability to draw on other art forms to create a deeply personal hybrid. Throughout his career, he has drawn inspiration from many artistic disciplines, but it is dance – and particularly Butoh – that has been at the heart of his greatest series of photographs. Thanks to the celebrated writer Yukio Mishima, Hosoe met Tatsumi Hijikata, one of the founders of Butoh dance. >>

Billy & Hells

The Astronaut's Wife

Anke Linz (1965, Nürnberg) and Andreas Oettinger (1963, Munich) met in the mid-1980s and, shortly after, began collaborating creatively. Since 1995, the two have worked together under the name Billy & Hells. Inspired by the photographs of Irving Penn and Helmut Newton, Billy & Hells initially worked in the field of fashion photography. Their portraits include elaborate, hand-painted backgrounds and draw inspiration from countless samples of fabrics, colour compositions and clothing that generate the distinct mood for each portrait. The typical usage of colour and composition in their images results in an awkward beauty, arriving from a signature visual style that was discovered via a typical lab-accident story: by forgetting to take a black and white negative out of the developer, they inadvertently produced an intense image with colours that appear simultaneously rich and muted. What they basically stumbled upon is a process of combining a black and white slide, made from a colour negative, with a colour picture - making for a beautiful photograph with fantastic effects that is now widely known as the ‘Billy & Hells’ technique.

They always hint at a subtly ironic and idealized cliché. For all their technical perfection, the archetypal characters depicted in their photographs—mothers, soldiers, cowboys, nurses, and teachers—retain a touch of dingy melancholy and are somehow a little trashy and a bit too colourful. Beyond the idiosyncratic processing, the work of this creative duo ultimately stands out for its distinctive sense of edginess and mystery. Seamlessly blending past and present, reality and fantasy, their photographs become a nostalgic diary, purposefully left open for interpretation.

Billy & Hells are represented by Morren Galleries in The Netherlands. They have exhibited in Tokyo and Berlin, among others. The work Sophia featured in the London National Portrait Gallery’s advertisement campaign for the exhibition of the Photographic Portrait Prize 2007.

Billy & Hells – 1977 (The Astronaut’s Wife series) Photo on dibond, Available in 3 dimensions



Byzantine Tania Shcheglova (1989, Ukraine) and Roman Noven (1984, Ukraine) are two emerging photographers operating together under the name of Synchrodogs. They have been experimenting with high quality cameras since their perhaps not-so-innocent youth, but have collaborated officially as a duo since 2008. It’s all about mixing and blending ideas but, as they claim themselves, there is nothing in one’s mind that the other one could not ‘read’. Juxtaposed or blended with the overwhelming forces of nature, their works have a strong physical presence. Synchrodogs relate closely to an animalistic lifestyle but many of their works should also be seen as an appropriation of the typical Ukrainian taste(lessness), which they tend to bend towards some specific elegance.

Synchrodogs, have been featured in international publications such as Dazed & Confused (USA), Vice (USA), Neon (Germany), L’Imparfaite (France), Novembre (France/Switzerland), S magazine (Denmark), I Love Fake (UK), Vision (China) and The British Journal of Photography (UK), as well as exhibited all over the world. Byzantine is their first monograph.



inPUT out PUT Stefan Friedli (Switzerland) and Ulrik Martin Larsen (Denmark), better known as the interdisciplinary artist collective PUTPUT, explore the banality of objects and playfully turn the ordinary into the extraordinary. Through distinctively staged still life tableaus they always attempt to give new meaning to these objects; to capture the previously unseen, in a way that is reminiscent of the 1920s Surrealist Movement. How can we be convinced to reconsider objects that at first glance seem so quaintly familiar? Subtle connections are created between the artefact and its purpose, calling for a double take. They take household cleaning paraphernalia and plant them amongst various potted flora. Or, in a much more immediate way, replacing the frozen body of a popsicle with a scour sponge. The two work at an increasingly trafficked intersection where photography, styling, art and design meet, which allows creators to control both the product and the way it’s presented – both the input and the output, as it were, which is where their clever studio name comes from.

onorato & krebs

raise the bar The new book of Taiyo Onorato and Nico Krebs (both 1979, Switzerland) is a combination of two series made in Berlin in which they make an anachronic reference to architecture and socialist iconography. Shot using an 8X10 view camera, they skew our perceptions by constructing outlines and frames of buildings from scrap wood that stand in the foreground but line up exactly with the background scene, far in the distance. This Building Berlin / Constructions series was photographed in Berlin’s empty lots between 2009 and 2012 and is a relatively laborious act of trompe-l'œil aimed at teasing out how photographs represent the three-dimensional world. Raise the Bar also incorporates stills from Blockbuster, a 5 minutes, 16mm black and white film, made in Berlin in 2012.

Onorato & Krebs are viewed by many as one of the most promising teams in contemporary photography. Their work provides intelligent and often ironic commentary on the history of photography, and on a meta-level hints at the dimensional characteristics of the medium. They both studied photography at the Zurich University for the Arts and have worked together since 2003. In 2013, they won the FOAM/Paul Huf Award for their oeuvre so far.

keller / wittwer

Passengers During a residency in Poland in the winter of 2010-2011, Dagmar Keller (1972, Germany) and Martin Wittwer (1969, Switzerland) were initially looking to start a project photographing Socialist architecture, but discovered instead a tangential subject: passengers looking through the frost and mist of bus windows. These people arouse a feeling of recognition and of intimacy, yet they stay covered with a film of remoteness. They seem to contain some of the melancholy that accompanies traveling, the movement from one place to another. Few things are as exciting as the idea of travelling somewhere else but commuters are not so much consciously travelling, or on a journey. They are rather just transmitted, as light or sound. This phenomena has fascinated photographers ever since Walker Evans captured passengers on the New York Subway with a 35mm camera hidden under his coat and Keller and Wittwer, who photographed individually at different bus stations all over Poland, added another valuable contribution to the genre.

Hardcover 156 pages 275 x 190 mm Spector Books, 2013 ISBN 9783944669021 â‚Ź 34

Passengers has won the FotoBook Dummy Award for 2012. Dagmar Keller and Martin Wittwer have collaborated together since 1997, creating extensive photographic cycles, film and video installations. As an artist duo, they have presented their work in numerous solo and group exhibitions.

Distant Place Five Polish photographers, Agnieszka Rayss, Adam Pańczuk, Rafal Milach, Jan Brykczynski and Michal Luczak – all members of Sputnik Photos – focused on the same thirty-kilometre-long stretch of the Vistula River, located in Warsaw. This effort, aimed at the local Polish citizenry by the Copernicus Science Centre, resulted in five completely different photo-stories showing what the Vistula is truly like: for some, it is a magical place or a refuge; for others, it is a rubbish pit for discarded people and objects. These photographers create specific micro-worlds: they show little snippets, fragments of reality, leaving the interpretation to the audience. The photographs represented in this portfolio undoubtedly capture something of that natural beauty, but they go well beyond that, as well. The photographers add to the surroundings of their photos something of the inhabitants of the forgotten river, and the tools that were left behind as well as the industry it still inspires (however gruesome that industry might be).

The Zeran Port. Special Water-Diving Rescue Team working with the River Police in Warsaw on criminal cases (extraction of objects and bodies from the river). Two weeks ago we pulled out the body of a man who had jumped off the Poniatowski Bridge. He had the tram stop in the middle of the bridge, opened the doors, came out and jumped – says Piotr Sikorski, Section Diver for 7 years. In 2011, the River Police recorded 26 death cases in connection with the river. Objects are pulled up from the river bottom, whereas bodies usually drift freely just beneath the surface.

No Olho da Rua No Olho da Rua (In the Eye of the Street) is an artistic experience initiated by Julian Germain, Murilo Godoy and Patricia Azevedo. The collective has now been operating, as and when resources have allowed, since 1995 and thus has created a unique archive – an extraordinary range of personal photographic histories, made across many years, by youngsters who would otherwise have no photography in their lives. The project is a collaboration with approximately 75 young people living on the streets of Belo Horizonte, Brazil's third largest city. They lead dangerous and nomadic lives, out in the open, in makeshift huts or under bridges, trees or canopies and sometimes in abandoned houses or factories. They gather together in groups for safety and companionship. Julian, Murilo and Patricia supply the cameras, process the films, give them their photographs and then talk with the youngsters about the images and experiences. Using basic materials such as point and shoot cameras, tape recorders, notebooks and pencils, the work lies not only in the photographs, audio and texts produced by all of the participants, but also within the processes and relationships established.

Julian Germain (1962, UK) is a British photographer based in North East UK who has published and exhibited widely internationally, and is known for taking a collaborative approach in several of his projects. Patricia Azevedo (1964, Brazil) is a Brazilian artist based in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, who works in collaborative projects exploring relationships of language, territory and power. She also collaborates with the British artist Clare Charnley and their joint works have featured in a number of exhibitions. Murilo Godoy (1962, Brazil) is a Brazilian graphic designer and photographer based in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. He runs the design agency Flux and has been working for many years on a project to record hand made vernacular signage throughout Brazil.

Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin are artists living and working in London. Together they have had numerous international exhibitions. Broomberg and Chanarin are Visiting Fellows at the University of the Arts London. Their work is represented in major public and private collections including Tate Modern, The Museum of Modern Art, the Stedelijk Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum, Musee de l’Elysee, The International Center of Photography and Loubna Fine Art Society. Most recently, they have been awarded the Deutsche BÜrse Photography Prize 2013.

broomberg & chanarin

The Polaroid Revolutionary Workers Over the last two decades, the South-African born artist duo Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin have been using a wide variety of means in their practice, which has often concerned itself with how history and current events are perceived through images. One of their latest works, The Polaroid Revolutionary Workers series is a good example of how they manage to re-evaluate and challenge the classic ideas of photography as a tool for documenting the social condition. The result was raw snaps of some of the country’s most beautiful flora and fauna from regions such as the Garden Route and the Karoo; an attempt by the artists to subvert what they say was the camera’s original, sinister intent. In 1970, Caroline Hunter, a young chemist working for the Polaroid Corporation, alongside her partner Ken Williams, stumbled upon evidence that her multinational employees were indirectly supporting apartheid. The radical notion that prejudice might be inherent in the medium of photography itself is expressed in this presentation of flowers and plants as encountered in South Africa, on salvaged Polaroid ID-2 systems. The camera included a boost button designed to increase the flash when photographing subjects with dark skin, and two lenses which allowed for the production of a portrait and profile image on the same sheet of film.

merkelbach: archive revisited

Merkelbach: Archive Revisited

The Amsterdam City Archive preserves the archive of Jacob Merkelbach, who ran an exclusive portrait studio in Amsterdam during the mid-twentieth century. The subjects include film actors, stage performers, models and many Dutch celebrities of the time. It’s unusual for so many of the portraits to have been preserved intact, and the archive functions as a wonderful insight into the cultural elite in Amsterdam between 1913 and 1969. Along with the Merkelbach Studio portraits, the Amsterdam City Archives presents three series of portraits by contemporary studio photographers. Erwin Olaf makes carbon prints of his portraits of Jewish Amsterdammers. Petra Stavast photographs experienced and novice Amsterdam actors, using one of the first mobile phones with a built-in camera. The duo of Blommers and Schumm take a few of Merkelbach’s portraits as their starting point for portraits made up of objects they found in their studio. In this portfolio, a selection of the original Merkelbach glass-negative portraits are juxtaposed with works by these contemporary photographers.

© Merkelbach / Stadsarchief Amsterdam

The Merkelbach Studio was founded in 1903. A selection of the more than 40,000 portraits in this archive will be presented at the Amsterdam City Archives, September 13, 2013 – January 5, 2014. A publication, edited by Anneke van Veen and designed by Els Kerremans, will illuminate the history of nearly 1,000 photographs in the Merkelbach Archive. Each book has its own unique cover! Many portraits from the archive remain anonymous, and a website has been founded for the contemporary citizens of Amsterdam to help identify these people:

kravets / morina / yushko

grozny: nine cities Since 2009, in the aftermath of an all-too-fresh conflict, Russian documentary photographers Olga Kravets (1984), Maria Morina (1982) and Oksana Yushko (1975) have covered Grozny, Chechnya. Grozny: a city that ceased to exist, a city of war, a city of religion, a city of men and women, a city of servants, a city of strangers, a city of oil and a city of normalcy. In joining their efforts, these photographers each offer their personal point of view on the complex, and sometimes forgotten, burning Chechen conflict. Applying a concept from Thornton Wilder's book Theophilus North, the series centres on the idea of nine cities being hidden in one; nine levels of existence hidden within the city. In their sub series 'City of Men' they attempt to unveil some dark secrets of the place, reinvented rather than reconstructed.

Olga Kravets, Maria Morina and Oksana Yushko are members of Verso Images, a collective of emerging photographers founded in 2009, interested in social change in the former USSR. Kravets defines herself as a lens-based artist and journalist at large. Morina is currently working on several projects in the Ukraine, combining still photography and video, and her first full-length documentary film in Russia. Yushko stays dedicated to classic photojournalism. All have been shortlisted and winners of several grants and awards. The installation of Nine Cities is a result of collaboration with visual musician Jose Bautista and curator Anna Shpakova.

On June 26, prizes were awarded for the first time by the brand new Selection of Dutch Photography (SO 2013) – formerly know as the PANL. SO 2013 is a new initiative by PANL to reward personal vision, style and interpretation rather than a series of photos from a project or assignment. GUP collaborated with PANL and attended the award ceremony. We were pleased to see Carla Kogelman bring home the gold. Since Carla is no stranger to us – she was featured in our book New Dutch Photography 2013 – we feel privileged to show you her amazing black and white photography in this issue.

Jury statement The submission of Carla Kogelman had immediately convinced all five core jurors. A series of photos that go straight to the heart, with a lot of emotion in the images. The way of telling that’s shown in these photos is clearly related to Ed van der Elsken: the series tells of life but the subjects are contemporary. A real art of poetic photography. The composition of the images are beautiful. More importantly, the series as a whole is fabulous, in a timeless way. And that is ultimately SO 2013.

Five photographers combine their vision in an unprecedented image of time


Š C. Barton van Flymen

c. barton van flymen

C. Barton Van Flymen C. Barton van Flymen is an extremely diverse photographer. He started his career as a news photographer and emerged into a sublime portrait and sports photographer. Loved for his autonomic vision and razor sharp eye for catching the right moment on the lens. His best works are black and white and his subjects are extremely diverse. He is persistent when he shoots socially challenging subjects. He has photographed for de Volkskrant, Nieuwe Revu and Avenue.


bart van leeuwen

Bart Van Leeuwen

Every single photograph shot by van Leeuwen is visually fascinating. He started out as a pop and portrait photographer and preferred creating black and white images. He mainly worked for underground magazines at the time. His fashion photography always carries a movie-like or storytelling quality. Not only did he shoot a lot of fashion and portrait photographs for editorial magazines, he also did a lot of advertising and commercial photography for sponsored magazines. His motto: 'photography is an excellent medium to give the illusion of importance to seemingly insignificant matters.'

boudewijn neuteboom

Boudewijn Neuteboom Neuteboom was an innovator and a trendsetter within fashion, beauty and illustrative photography. His influence on his models was one of a kind. With precise preparation he managed to create opportunities for experiments and provoked new techniques. He was one of the first to manipulate slides of film (coarse grain). He preferred to shoot without a tripod; his free style of photography became his signature. His photos seemed to have been born seemingly without effort.

bart nieuwenhuijs

Bart Nieuwenhuijs ‘Photography is the joy of seeing’. Very diverse photography is what characterizes the work of Nieuwenhuijs. He has always refused to specialise. With his uniquely broad vision he has approached every subject of interest as a challenge. His autonomic approach of culinary photography is surprising and fresh. He has shot food, interiors, reportage and fashion. His work is recognisable by its technical perfection. He is the master of light and composition.

Van der Velde is well known for his travel and reportage photography. ‘The world is his studio’. His photographs look natural. Even though he has also made a lot of staged work. He has shot a lot of reportages of journalists and famous writers like Jan Cremer and Jan Donkers. He prefers to work alone and can be very serious while adding the right twist of humor. One photograph of van der Velde can tell a thousand words.
