1KM by Raimond Wouda, Céline Clanet, Jan Stradtmann from Landscape Stories on Vimeo.

“Altevie Technologies asked three international photographers to ‘photograph the Italy of Altevie‘ and to do so by using one simple rule: look for the public space dedicated to leisure that was closest to the headquarters of one of its clients, so long as it was within one kilometer radius of it. Raimond Wouda (The Netherlands), Céline Clanet (France) and Jan Stradtmann (Germany) photographed sports fields and places of social interaction through witnesses that are able to stimulate new visions, perspectives, and hypotheses.

At the source of the project is the will to tell the work of Altevie Technologies without necessarily exposing their clients’ brands but instead by constructing a narrative of nearby places – the areas of leisure, seen as the reverse shot of the ones dedicated to work.

The result of this process is 1KM: a work of photographic research that investigates the public spaces neighbouring big businesses, factories, utilities, and R&D centres of Italian excellence. There is a bit of everything along this journey: monumental spaces, open landscapes, parks with leisure facilities, improvised sport fields, hidden corners, historic arenas, youth and sport centres, self-managed spaces… An unexpected journey, able to tell stories that represent us deeply.” (text: 1KM web page)

Pavlov's_Dog_Still_HuntI’m pleased to invite you to the Still Hunt magazine launch at gallery Pavlov’s Dog in Berlin on Sunday, 22nd of January 2017 at 5 pm. During the presentation I will give a short overview about the history of automatic camera systems – and a brief journey into hunting and modern animal-monitoring-systems will exemplify my artistic approach and interest to adopt this imaging technology for the work Still Hunt. Furthermore Davide Giorgetta and Valerio Nicoletti (Kaspar Hauser) will speak about the photographic storytelling of Still Hunt, designed in the form of a variable magazine format.

"Still Hunt"

Interview_LSThe current issue of Landscape Stories Magazine features an interview with Celine Clanet, Raimond Wouda and me about the upcoming book publication 1KM. The book will be launched in January 2017.

“1KM è un libro, un atlante, un diario di viaggio, un Grand Tour Contemporaneo, e anche una rete che connette persone, luoghi, esperienze, immagini, storie.” (text: 1KM web page; picture: screenshot Landscape Stories)

Calamita, Jan StradtmannFor the next 10 days I will post on the Instagram account of the CALAMITA/À project. The posts are releted to my recent activities in the area of Vajont and the continuation of my work Third Nature. Please follow their account here.

Corrupted_filesI am pleased that some pictures of the Still Hunt series are part of “Corrupted Files”.

“Corrupted Files is an innovative and unique journal that breaks with traditional structures of research journals by publishing, without separation or distinction, the research by students and staff at Ravensbourne alongside that of external practitioners and researchers.

This new issue focuses on concepts of – and angles on – conflict. The conflict issue dynamically brings together a broad range of interpretations and treatments of the concept of conflict, through writing as well as films, photographic projects, animation and painting.

The launch will take place between 5.30 pm – 8 pm at the NOW Gallery, next to North Greenwich station (speeches to start 5.45 pm). The hard-copy version of Corrupted Files, designed by the talented graphic designer Anna Barisani, will be available at the launch, and the NOW Gallery’s intimate cinema will screen the journal’s animation and film contributions.” (text: Corrupted Files web page)
