Athens Love by Ren Hang published by Session Press featured in Dazed and Confused

Monday March 14, 2016

By 

"Photographer Ren Hang’s affinity with nature and the nude form continues in his latest book Athens Love. Continuing to produce work outside of his native home of China, where he is often censored or in trouble with police who threaten to arrest him, for his latest book Hang trips to Attica and Athens in Greece. While his last book NEW LOVE was shot in New York, here Hang swaps skylines and cityscapes to shoot his friends gazing into glistening lakes, obscured between rocks, swamped by daffodils or amongst cactus and aloe vera plants..."

by Cris Blanco

"Born in the city of Chang Chun (China), this photographer takes explicit and direct pictures, disregarding taboos. REN HANG’S work is closely linked to eroticism and the emotional and vivid element of the skin. Winning the Third Annual Terna Prize for Contemporary Art in 2010, he has shown and published his work both in China and abroad, and now his second monograph is coming to light. “Athens Love” is a compilation of the pictures he took during his stay in the Greek capital last spring. We tell you how, when and where to see it..."

Now Here Then by Huger Foote featured in Salon Litteraire

Monday March 7, 2016

By Jean-Paul Gavard-Perret

"Le monde de Huger Foote est un monde où tout chaloupe. Fureteur, le photographe retient ce qui n’intéresse personne. Il déambule dans divers lieux grevés de traces et de résidus : fruits jetés, traces de pneu dans un cloaque, herbes folles, parpaings, tréteaux, tuyaux etc. Tout cela crée un kiosque étrange que l’artiste réunit dans ses albums d’images. Aux cités impériales l’artiste préfère les zones moins fastes, brillantes ou touristiques. Il aime les moments ou les lieux en creux là où commence ou finit un monde. Pour en suggérer l’éphémère la photographe  froisse ou lacère au besoin ses photos..."

Japanese Performer Eiko Otake featured in the Ny Times

Wednesday March 2, 2016

By Brian Seibert  

"At 9 a.m. on Monday, if you had peeked through the storefront window of Dashwood Books on Bond Street in Manhattan, you would have seen a body on the floor, sleeping or possibly dead. Slowly, out of tattered Japanese robes emerged whitened feet, gnarled and aged and terribly exposed.
It was a startling sight, and no less unsettling if you knew those feet belonged to the dancer Eiko, whom you had come to watch..."

Now Here Then by Huger Foote featured in Photobookstore Magazine

Wednesday February 3, 2016

By Robert Dunn

"With the photos in Huger Foote’s brilliant new book, Now Here Then, the passing—no, the inescapable effects, the ravages—of time is central to the meaning of the book. These thirty-six photos were taken decades ago, initially shot with a sense of serendipity, of letting fate help Foote capture the strongest images possible; then time stepped in, the prints messed-up back then while being edited, tossed into drawers, nearly forgotten, then pulled forth three years ago and carefully turned into the stirring work under review here."

Hugo Guinness featured in T Magazine

Monday February 1, 2016

By 

"The British artist and Wes Anderson collaborator Hugo Guinness has a soft spot for animals. He has painted pooches, cats — and at least two bunnies (his daughter’s); designed a rhinoceros doodle for a Coach wallet in 2012; and embarked on a Google safari to sketch exotic toads, serpents and bears, which were compiled into a book released last year ($25, Dashwood Books)..."

Now Here Then by Huger Foote nominated by Swedish Newspaper: Helsingborgs Dagblad as one of the best photo books of the year

"7. "Now here then". Huger Foote. Förlag: Dashwood Books.En personlig resa som spänner över lång tid. Bilderna är ofta dammiga och skadade som om de glömts i en kartong i väntan på att monteras i album. Det är inte viktigt för Foote att prata högt, hans språk är mer introvert, och han talar med en dämpad och subtil närvaro. Det som vid första betraktelsen kan upplevas som ytligt eller svårtillgängligt ger vid en närmre granskning en djup inblick i Footes liv och upplevelser. Ett känsligt tyst bildspråk som i dag nästan känns exotiskt. Och som en programförklaring i....
