New Arrival: Waterfall Magazine 4-The Spectacle of Now

2012 / 03 / 28

The Spectacle of Now 世界奇观

以前的人选出了七大奇观,冠冕堂皇,彷彿他们内心中都有一把丈量世界的尺。对照之下,现在活着的我们反而显得不知所措。不知所措,我很喜欢这个词,原意为不知道该将手脚放置在哪裡。距离人类登陆月球的四十二年之后,我们每日每日无所适从地登录所有自己拥有的帐号;无所适从地读着报纸、看着电视;无所适从地等待世界末日来临。

因此,即使这本的主题是作「世界奇观」,即使我稍微提及了最初被划定的七大世界奇观,即使用日常生活的物件开启得以一窥当代艺术样貌的小窗,即使你认知到原来利用控制雷射光束可以使日光灯管发出独一无二的声响来,即使规划了一间台湾汽车旅馆的写真记录,或者,即便是瀑布尚未有自己的app。但这一本「世界奇观」或许是也不是你所想像的那样。

不只是一本杂志、不只是一本书、不只是一本摄影集,它是一本瀑布。– 主编 Shauba Chang

Waterfall,瀑布杂志,来自于台湾,却保有世界性视野与调查度的独立杂志。瀑布着重于日常生活中带给人们美感体验与感动的瞬间与细节,希望将自身的生活体验为基点建构出人们对日常美感的敏锐度与欣赏。

瀑布(Waterfall)于2006年创立,最初以促成国际间当代艺术文化创作的交流为自许。作为一个艺文平台的起点,起初于网路形态的方式发行杂志。每期定有一主题,以邀请与募集创作的动作同时进行编集,作品类型涵括摄影、插画、设计、短文与长篇小说等。创作之外,瀑布以日常问谈的形式与艺术家进行交流,无论是信件的来往或者相约聊天,都试图在生活中探索创作背后的真实。除了艺文创作,不定期有数个专栏轮替撰稿,以散文形态与读者分享一种音乐类型、一处风景、一间咖啡店、一位作家或者只是一首歌。

New Arrival: alter:sg from Singapore

2012 / 03 / 27

来自新加坡的独立杂志alter:sg。相信平凡事物仍有值得被重新挖掘之美。或许新加坡这个只有704平方公里的小岛国并没有什么太特别之处,但正是这片土地给居住在这里的居民所带来的快乐生活,让人觉得这里仍有值得被挖掘的地方,这里的景色仍有被重新审视的价值。

这本杂志由新加坡本地的四个年轻人办起来,是一本新加坡独立导游手册,主要介绍当地的特色小店和设计,体现新加坡人生活的方方面面,同时也会定期举办一些好玩的活动,带领读者领略新加坡那些有趣的小角落。

随书赠送A4折叠海报,一览新加坡好吃好玩的旅游最酷推荐。

New Arrival: Head Seeds

2012 / 03 / 18

Head Seeds is sort of a poem or a parable.

It concerns about the relationship between body and mind. It begins with a plenty of heads which are floating in the air. And then they meet with the bodies. When a head is on a body, thoughts start to grow. And when the thoughts are too large to be held, they will leave the old body and begin their new journey until encountering with next new body.

about the artist: Wang Mengyang was born in 1987 and now is living in Beijing, China. Sichuan Fine Art Institute, BA oil painting, 2006-2010. Beihang University, School of New Media Art and Design, MA Illustration , 2010—2013.

Days to Drjeeling, zine 007 by Justin Waldron.

在大吉岭的日子。Justin的第七本手作zine,在印度东北部的大吉岭里的风景和童趣,遥远的,纯洁的画面。Justin的zine总是让人深深收感染。这种情绪会一直萦绕在内心,握着小小的书,就会不自觉的想到,原来自己并没有漠然,原来自己还会向往陌生的地方。那种美好和温柔,是他所有的zine带给我的感动。

Justin的小小手工摄影书与季节的更替保持着一致的节奏,这位纽约生,纽约电影学院毕业的年青写真家,拍下的摄影作品好有镜头感。采用喷墨打印技术,手工装帧。朦胧模糊的基调,电影初始开场的画面。50本限量制作,是温暖可爱zine的完美代表呢,香蕉鱼书店少量引进。

New Arrival: 克拉美丽 Karamay

2011 / 12 / 04

Karamay is the first photobook published by 1416 OFPIX workshop&studio from Beijing.

帕孜来提,哈力奇古丽,阿地拉,热米拉,伊米提,牙森… …这些词语是他们的名字,第一次看到时你得逐字逐句地念出,并不像普通汉族名字那样顺口。他们来自新疆维吾尔族的克拉玛依,摄影师袁洁的故乡。
袁洁的个人作品集《克拉美丽》,由北京摄影书工作室OFPIX于今年九月出版。限量100本。面向读者只有50本在售。每一本都附摄影师亲笔签名和独立编号。

“袁洁所拍摄的是她故乡克拉玛依的维吾尔族人。作为一个生活在克拉玛依的汉族人,她的观察是以内在人的身份,但同时也是一位外来者。 摄影师对身边这些熟悉的陌生人的审视依然带有几分好奇,但这种观察并非发生在民族,种族,疆域和权力这样的话语环境中,而就是一种人与人之间的打量,正是这种目光的存在,使得观察者也得以走近被摄对象。
袁洁的拍摄并非只是一种中立状态的“记录”,《克拉美丽》这个标题体现了她的态度。“单一”是独裁的恶果,那只能生成乏味无聊的同一和统一,“美丽”来自多元。

袁洁的作品是OFPIX出版的第一本书,我们关注那些有“眼光”的摄影师,他们的观看有着独立的态度,并与世代息息相关。”

New Arrival: Taciturn Heart

2011 / 07 / 03

摄影师Marcelo Gomes以模糊为摄影语言,将摄影主题如一朵彩色的花朵般绽放,盛开。Marcelo的摄影以虚静为美,失焦或是偏移的创作手法,如在无声的交流,沉默寡言的心,摄影师的心。

香蕉鱼书店新书上架:http://a-perfect-book-for-bananafish.com/books/140

The photographs of Marcelo Gomes are not classical or rooted in formalism; rather, they disembark from the tropes of photography and enter an extraordinary realm of spontaneity and reconfiguration of frame. Often out of focus and off centered, the subjects of phenomena, humans, and nature are captured with remarkable vibrancy and colorful hues. Taciturn Heart is Gomes’ second book.

摄影师介绍:Marcelo Gomes,生于巴西的年轻摄影师。2003年移居纽约后,任职于Index magazine。工作中认识了自己的摄影导师Mark Borthwick,之后开始自由摄影师的工作,并形成自己独特的摄影风格。Taciturn Heart是独立出版社hassla为Marcelo Gomes出版的第二本书。第一本为Love and Before, Green and After

Born in Brazil, Marcelo lives and works in New York. He attended the University of Iowa on a full athletic scholarship (basketball) and graduated with a B. A. in Political Science. In 2003 Marcelo moved to New York and began working at Index Magazine where he met photographer Mark Borthwick. He assisted Mark for two years before starting to shoot on his own in 2008.

New Arrival: Fro st by Hiroshi Kiyonaga

2011 / 06 / 18

东京住独立摄影师Hiroshi Kiyonaga的初次写真集[Fro st]。只身踏入北方之地,寂静的冻结期北国,霜雪覆盖下的原野,优雅、天真和坚韧,仿佛与世界隔离。脱离场景的惯常表达,清永洋的摄影作品让自然的原色通过光与影,细腻地述说一个落雪下隐匿之事,富有戏剧化。残忍、凶猛、铺天盖地,人与自然的对抗和融和。在时间和地点,天气和温度构造的情结里,切断的镜头忽而闪现,时间凝固在冰川中,树枝上,寒霜里。

香蕉鱼书店:http://a-perfect-book-for-bananafish.com/books/145

Frost is the first independent book by Tokyo-based photographer Hiroshi Kiyonaga and contains the images he captured on his journey to the north-east region of Japan during the quiet mid-winter. The landscapes in Frost appear covered up, as if submerged by the blanket of snow. The book’s images are highly effective in showing nature as both pure, immaculate and innocent; and yet at the same time, as a severe, treacherous and unforgiving force. Kiyonaga’s photographs also capture the strong sense of humanity which continues to exist even in this harsh and remote environment. Rather than depicting nature in the more usual dramatic artistic terms; as a force of grandeur, ferociousness, cruelty and confrontation, the images in Frost provide a more stark and honest representation of the wild and unadorned reality of nature.

摄影师介绍:清永洋(Hiroshi Kiyonaga),1978年生于日本福冈。1998年毕业于九州艺术工科大学,2003年起成为自由职业摄影师。经常合作的杂志包括:「OZmagazine」、「MACPOWER」、「カメラ日和」、「日経WOMAN」、「GOETHE」、「Number」、「Re:S」。同时也多活跃于网络平台作品的发表和群展中。

Author Profile:

Hiroshi Kiyonaga is a Tokyo-based photographer, who has predominantly shot for magazines and textbooks, journals and essays. Since graduating in 2003, Kiyonaga has worked primarily as a freelance photographer.
