is their preoccupation with light – “chances are, if you believe the light,” Wessel has said, “you are going to believe that things photographed existed in a world”. He moves back and forth between the east and west coasts, and has extracted some of his richest subject matter from Los angeles where there is, according to him, a greater “physicality of light”. the other crucial part of his work is the imagery of the urban or suburban environment –people sitting, standing, reclining in public spaces, some sculpture-like without the ceremony, others isolated and aimless, and empty phone booths or abandoned objects with their own ambiguity and dignity. there can also be an uncomfortable edge to these images of what was or could have been, but still there is always a charm which is like an amuse bouche, initially pleasant then developing into something surprisingly superb and full of depth. these quiet, mannered images build their effect upon the viewer through their smooth composites and graphic unity with an easy mildness which satisfies and lingers. in 1971, Wessel received a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation fellowship and in 1973 his photographs were exhibited at the Museum of Modern art in new York. Wessel’s work was also included in New Topographics: Photographs of a Man-Altered Landscape at the international Museum of Photography in rochester, new York in 1975. Wessel’s photographs are held in the collections of the art institute of chicago; center for creative Photography, university of arizona, tucson; Fogg art Museum, Harvard university, cambridge, Ma.

Art changes the view on reality. The sensitising and extension  of our perception of the assumed known reality is the  fundamental approach of Andreas Gefeller’s photographic  work. The present lot, Parkplatz 1, belongs to his series  Supervisions, in which the artist questions, in his large-sized  colour photographs, the deserted space constellations he  found. This series consists of shots from urban spaces,  which enable not only views of public places and areas, but  also provides bird’s eye views of enclosed spaces. Yet the  impression of classical aerial photos from a great height  emerges eventually as a delusion of our normal viewing  patterns. With the help of complex photographic techniques,  Gefeller manages to create ‘possible’ and ‘impossible’  perspectives. He fixes his camera onto a tripod attached to  his body at the height of two metres. With the camera being  perpendicular to the floor, it scans step by step the previously  marked field. Finally, hundreds of photos will be assembled  together and result in the overall picture. The detailed and  highly dissolved view of the scanned surface as well as the  several optical breaks, which are created though perspective  mismatches, nonetheless reveal an unusual creation – the  awareness of which can only be developed by the observer’s  close attention. Through the use of extreme image sections  as well as the loss of control and significant points, the  designed supervisions are transformed into abstract pictorial  compositions.  Gefeller questions not only the objectivity of photography as a  medium, but also nouns such as reality and alienation. Mostly it  is time that influences his composition. This becomes obvious  in the present lot , in which one can see the fading daylight and  the growing darkness both at once.

The present lot, conceived by Candida Höfer as part of the  Brussels series in 2006, shows many of the characteristics of her  work in her use of formal elements such as line and blocks, and  light and colour. The concert hall itself is a superb example of an  Art Deco building designed in the early 1920s by Victor Horta,  the acclaimed Belgian architect. In this particular building,  however, Horta, who is usually known as a master of Art  Nouveau, shows his versatility as an architect by designing with  the geometric forms of Art Deco as he continued to work in the  era of modernism.  It is not surprising that Höfer’s eye for structure has been excited  by this building – the way she realizes light and visualizes pattern  is perfectly offset here. She loves the composition of the  building, the sleek and curving forms, horizontal lines and  rhythmic repetition of shapes which she records objectively, yet  not without warmth, with her camera. As usual, there are no  people present to disrupt the quiet order of the structure, but it is  precisely this purity of the carefully composed scene, with its  suggestion of desire, idealism, even innocence, that itself  becomes the human element in the image.

JApANEsE pHOTOGRApHs Diversity of expression Photography began to play a vital role in Japanese culture soon after it was introduced to the country around 1850. the spread of photography throughout Japan mirrored the westernization of the country although the actual documentation of the photographic inauguration came much later. identity as a society has been a clear defining influence and factor in the formation of this specific and seductive area of photography especially during the post war years. two schools of photography grew and flourished – one bore witness to the former atrocities of hiroshima and nagasaki advocating a harrowing realism and the non-staged image, while the other, looking closely at the landscape and the traditions of Japan, allowed people to once again become familiar with their homeland. along with developments in photography after the war, there was a general artistic explosion in film, dance, theatre and literature – separate art forms fused and bled into one another, and it was the ‘photographer’ eikoh hosoe who stood at the centre of these. hosoe’s work today is freshly immediate and radical, a visceral mix between theatre and documentary, intensely unforgettable – his name is immediately mentioned along with perhaps the best-known Japanese photographers of the day offered in this section, daido Moriyama and nobuyoshi araki. a member of ‘Provoke’ – the periodical/manifesto which was first published in tokyo in 1968, and explored photography and text, a response to 1960s Japan, which remained unknown in the West for many years – Moriyama is an advocate of the ‘bure’ and ‘boke’ style. his out-of-focus stream-of-consciousness images seem to vibrate off the page, we see an image through what is dark rather than what is light. everything to Moriyama is strange – a cherry blossom, people in the street, a still dog, a woman waiting for the act of sex to begin, paralysis coated by his lens. of Moriyama’s work, nobuyoshi araki wrote: “i was so jealous of Moriyama’s nudes in the second issue … i wanted to join them but i wasn’t allowed … So i worked alone.” Like daido, araki photographed female nudes in his early years, the most poignant ones being of Yoko who later became his wife. although there is the intrinsic culture and subject matter linking both photographers, the way they use the camera is poles apart. daido controls how much we see whereas araki wants us to see everything, things perhaps that we have been conditioned not to view face on, and then to look closer still. araki confronts life, presenting a flower, an anus, a plate of food with the same questions, synergy and lack of hierarchy.

PROPERTY fROM THE JAcOBSON/HASHIMOTO cOllEcTION Tom Jacobson was an impassioned lover of Japanese photography who pioneered the pursuit and collection of Japanese works in the postwar era. His love for this specific genre of photography began through acquiring a set of rare journals which set him and his assistant and eventual partner on a fantastic journey, travelling through Japan to search out works which often meant meeting directly with the families and estates. The result was an eclectic, wonderful and in many ways unique collection of photographic works which reflect various styles and influences and a distinct preoccupation with detail, structure, form and texture. The following lots are all from this collection, and most of the works are believed to be unique and acquired directly from the artists or their families
