Willa Cather

There are only 2 or 3 stories in the lives of human beings that are repeated as cruelly as if they never happened, and (...) there are 2 kinds of people : those chasing pleasure and those running from pain (and from all kinds of everything)

Nobody gets to escape their pain it is there when you brush your teeth at night and it is there before breakfast it comes up fierce and sharp and lay in your blood The most you can hope for is one good day because on a good day you get to tell yourself “I can fix this, today can be different�

I am building a fort like when I was seven with the pillows and the chairs my aunties cats hairs and a safety blanket with its holes where the light came through I’ve got the string I’ve got cookies and milk I’ve got scarves of silk

but this one extends to the beach and lets the seagulls nest on my belly

this one runs down to the woods and nuzzles with the deer this one won’t be interrupted by ‘dinner’s ready’ or ‘turn off the telly’ this one is ‘no trespassing’ for both our safety you won’t even see it or me within it’s my new safe shell in my own little hell

Alan Aubry During the years preceding the end of Apartheid, some Afrikaner’s politicians and activists were interested in creating a white province, a fallback in a system they knew doomed to disappear. This idea of a white province was rejected by the ruling and opposition parties negotiators while finding an end to Apartheid However, a small part of the Afrikaner ideologists had already bought an almost deserted and derelected settlement from the Department of Water, so they could create a private town for the white descendants of the “Great Trek pioneers”. An enclave with the intention of allowing the Afrikaner’s community to live separately and in an independent way towards the other populations sharing the same territory. Today, this town called Orania has 700 inhabitants and would extend over some 8000 hectares of mainly agricultural land. Numerous inhabitants came for ideological reasons, some for work or safety.

Some Afrikaners are convinced of it, in this countryside has begun to resurrect South Africa, their South Africa.

Federico Fellini - unknown italian women hoping to get a part in one of his films -


Errol I started collecting sneakers about three years ago. In search of more knowledge I turned to internet forums, full of details, stories, descriptions and ethusiastic collector’s vibe.

http://www.errolphotography.com

Being a photographer, one day I found myself struck with an idea to start to document some of the collectors and a selection of their shoes. This was around 7 months ago. I’ve always been interested in original people who are driven to be or have something different. People who have the ultimate need to stand out of the crowd rather than blend in. I wanted to go right across the board, mix in the top-shelf collectors with a domestic passionates. People with a genuine interest in sneakers, but with no intention to make it a main subject of their life.

It was very important to show the ‘normalness’ of the collectors. Rather than arranging “fashion” shots, I chose to achieve it by shooting in the house or flat, where more often than not what is in the background becomes just as important as the subject. Although primarily my project is about sneaker collectors at the end of the day it is also a bit of a glimpse into real life.

Pierre Boulat Les cadets de West Point - Beast Barracks – U.S.A. – 1957. La leçon de danse


This 1st and largest international Russian photo festival will be devided in 3 themes: “Vive la France!” “Retrospective” “Perspectives”. 2010 is the Year of Russia / France, so Moscow will organize some large-scale retrospective of photographers and agencies such as Magnum, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Martine Franck, Elliott Erwitt, Sarah Moon (who will present a video about one of the most «photographic book publishers» Robert Delpira, etc… This year, the Moscow Biennale takes a look into the archives of the largest International Photo Festival "Les Rencontres Photographiques d'Arles", whose work has lasted for forty years, identifying the most interesting and significant personalities in the world of photography. The exhibition "Moscow / Paris" at the Moscow Museum of Modern Art will present the work of French and Russian photographers who have received the support of the Municipality of Moscow and the Municipality of Paris for the past 14 years. One of the most anticipated project of the Biennale is a retrospective of the German photographers Bernd and Hilla Becher (collection Kunst Palace, Dusseldorf), who have largely determined the modern photographic vision. Commissioned by the French Ministry of Culture, the CNAP (National Center for Plastic Arts) will show "Mosaic", on the theme of youth. The Photomuseum of Sundsvall will show "Ten Photographers", a project dedicated to the 50th anniversary of the existence of this Swedish group. The "Time is within us" will unite the Istanbul Museum of Modern Art and Fotomuzeem Thessaloniki, for an exhibition from Russian, Greek and Turkish photographers. The "Moscow House of Photography" has prepared a retrospective called «Reminiscences», with artists such as Valeria Schekoldina, Alexandra Borodulina, Andrew Bezukladnikova and Juozas Budraitis. «Manege» will show a unique retrospective of Paolo Roversi. And "Factory" will focus on French photographers from Chateau Saut d'Eau, who became famous thanks to the Internet portal flickr. The festival will present projects from Russian authors-photographers Ivan Mikhailov, Natasha Pavlov, Margot Ovcharenko, Natasha Zhdanova, as well as a video program with the participation of Tatyana Ahmetgalievoy, Julia Lebedeva, Aline Gutkin, Gleb Kosorukova.

Paris - Moscow Photography 10 years of trade residences between the City of Paris and the House of Photography in Moscow.

Capital of the world, Paris draws its cultural vitality and creativity in trade and cultural diversity. This openness is reflected by an active policy of welcoming artists or cultural events. In this spirit, an ambitious program of residencies

crossed with other capitals has grown over the past ten years. The privileged relationship established with Olga Sviblova, director of the House of Photography in Moscow, and the complicity of Culturesfrance, help French photographers, often fascinated by Russia, to live and work in Moscow for several weeks. In return, the new eyes of young Russian photographers have made at the discretion of their stay, a new light on Paris and France.

The opportunity is now given, as part of the France - Russia Year and the cultural protocol that links Paris and Moscow, to show the rich images born from these exchanges. After the Museum of Modern Art in Moscow, the exhibition will be held at the CitĂŠ Internationale des Arts in the heart of Paris.

Boris Kudryanov - Miroir de la guerre, Grozny, 1996

Exposition présentée dans le cadre de l’Année France-Russie 2010, et organisée par le Centre Multimedia des Arts Actuels de Moscou.


www.france-russie2010.fr

De la photographie russe, l’on connaît essentiellement les prodigieux travaux avant-gardistes menés par Alexander Rodtchenko, El Lissitzky, Gustav Kloutsis et la revue Lef, sous la forme de photomontages à la gloire du bolchévisme, et de photographies relevant de la Nouvelle Vision, plongées, contre-plongées, plans rapprochés, obliques, fragmentations, etc. Mais aussi, hélas, les produits formatés du réalisme socialiste, lorsque Staline prit le pouvoir et liquida toutes les avant-gardes au profit d’un art et d’une photographie dont la seule fonction était de louer le régime et le Petit Père des Peuples. Pendant des décennies, ce fut le silence, l’oppression, la chape de plomb, même si l’on peut imaginer que certains eurent le courage, au risque de leur vie, de résister. Ce n’est qu’avec la « Perestroïka », à la fin des années quatre-vingt, qu’apparut enfin au grand jour un art non-officiel, émanant de la culture underground. L’individu l’emporta peu à peu sur le collectif, tandis que tout était à réinventer : nouvelles formes, nouvelles thématiques, nouveaux modes d’expositions, dans les journaux, les galeries, les Biennales, à l’étranger enfin. Il devenait urgent de se défaire des vieux oripeaux idéologiques, d’affronter le vrai visage de la Russie, loin des mirages du communisme dur, loin des discours officiels formatés, et d’en rendre compte par l’image. Le documentaire – parce qu’il se veut une lecture fidèle de la réalité – fut incontestablement l’une des formes visuelles privilégiées, ainsi que la Street photography, qui rendait compte, dans une sorte de vivante immédiateté, du flux énergique des villes. Citons Alexander Abasa, Yevgeny Kondatov, Yuri Kozyrev, Vladimir Mishukov, Georgy Pervov, Valeri Schchekoldin, Vladimir Siomin, Aleksander Sliusarev, Vladimir Viatkin, Mikhail Yevstafiev, et peutêtre surtout Igor Mukhin, qui se montre particulièrement attentif à la dialectique complexe entre les vestiges d’un communisme défunt et l’émergence agressive d’un capitalisme libéral très offensif, de même qu’aux paysages urbains, aux gens, aux visages et aux plus jeunes... Tous s’attachent à décrire et à analyser un pays en proie à des mutations souvent contradictoires. Mais si la forme documentaire est très puissante dans la photographie russe contemporaine, elle n’exclut pas ce que l’on a pu appeler la « photographie plasticienne », une photographie qui revendique son appartenance à l’histoire de l’art et refuse les cloisonnements académiques. Ainsi en va-t-il de ces artistes qui utilisent le medium photographique bien plus qu’ils ne se disent photographes, tels que Serguei Bratkov, Olga Chernijshova, le groupe Fenso, Vladimir Kuprianov, Vladislav Mamyshev-Monro, Ilia Piganov, Arsen Savadov, et surtout Oleg Kulik ainsi que le groupe AES+F. (...) Le corps, banni par le stalinisme comme toujours susceptible de verser dans la pornographie, fait retour dans l’image. Il le fait aussi sous la forme plus « glamour » de la photographie de mode, qui se déploie depuis les années quatre-vingt-dix autour de Vladimir Fridkes, Vladimir Glynin, Mikhail Koroliov, Yevfrosina Lavrukhina, Vlad Loktev, etc. Si l’exhaustivité ne saurait être le propos de cette exposition présentée par la MEP, il n’en demeure pas moins que se donnent ici à voir la polyphonie et l’extraordinaire vitalité de la photographie russe contemporaine.

Porque extravagante es deambular por senderos, que a veces no conducen a parte conocida - esperada alguna


, Sandra-Vanessa Liegeois k_kouette@yahoo.fr

With views

A marine landscape  is like a window with a view. The pictures from the collection With views are also paintings in which one can see and feel the human intervention in its omnipresence on the European seashore. From the couple washed ashore to the ligthouse we discerne far away, all these traces reveal our actions on the coasts and on the environment. In an eclectic way, I make the inventory of what seems to be the identity of a time, a time when the presence of men is everywhere touchable. From the simple landscape to the portrait of a place, I try to intertwine scenes and postures. I want to express the close link uniting mankind and the environment, as an heritage. There is a strange feeling coming from so many connections between places so different.  Everyone can recognize a familiar place. But, in this case, are we in Brittany or in Galicia, in Corsica or in Sweden, close to the sea or facing the ocean ? Maybe we are, for a moment, only facing ourselves.

Alan Aubry Down memory lane

After a serial work on objects or urban areas, I faced the South Africa of my childhood, using photography to

expose a part of my own history. My father worked on numerous constructions sites abroad, in particular in Cape Town from 1979 to 1985, building a nuclear power station. I arrived there at the age of five, left at the age of eleven and only came back at the age of 32.

Christto Sanz Siempre mi mirada ha sido capturada por las cosas que están fuera de su lugar, en caos, como en caos perfecto; desorden perfecto que solo ocurre una vez. Lo irreverente que despierta conciencias, la sorpresa y lo irracional que se parece tanto a los sueños o a la vida misma. La belleza que podemos encontrar en el monstruo dormido, en la pared rayada de historias urbanas,Pero más que todo en la belleza de la cicatriz, indestructible como la huella imborrable de la fotografía que emana en

el interior del sujeto. Ese interior que es evidente en su retrato, interior que es fracturado, mutilado y construido por su entorno. Cuando digo sujeto, muchas de las veces me refiero a mi mismo, a mi autorretrato, entiendo al sujeto como una maza repartida o esparcida pero que al final son un

todo.Mi trabajo explora los traumas o situaciones de la psiquis, los momentosde crisis e ideas que se hacen parte del proceso creativo del artista. Me interesan los mundos íntimos y los transcursos de la identidad añorada.
