Khichdi (Kitchari) by Nick Sethi selected as one of the best photo books of the year by the NY Times Magazine

A photo book is a stubbornly old-fashioned technology. It allows for some experimentation, with scale, paper and color, but it is ultimately a sequence of photographs printed on paper and bound into a portable volume. In a time of a torrential flow of online photographs and omnipresent video, such material simplicity is almost quaint. But a form invented in the mid-19th century remains one of the most vivid ways of conveying the power of images...

I still wanted to be part of that scene, especially once my friends started going on tour. I always loved touring because it was a means to get in a van and leave South Florida, which is pretty isolated. So I started roadie-ing and selling merch, and I decided to take photos as a way to participate. I ended up really...

I was putting all of this together and thinking through what it would mean to look after my own milk in none so vexing pornographic terms. The...

How to Do The Flowers by Ruth van Beek featured in ASX

Wednesday October 10, 2018

By Brad Feuerhelm

"Ruth Van Beek’s practice involves an unashamed focus on craft, abstraction and archive. The work as it has evolved has taken on a new persistence in which she compels to produce form that is not easily given over to representation. If you are of a certain generation you will be able to read the work or at least the genesis of its flow by association to children’s television, gardening and cooking books on your grandparents shelves and a number of hazy monuments to mimcry that they produce"...
