PUNTO de FUGA A new experimental photo-book platform that emerges in 2015 during a highly uncertain but quite inventive period for book publishing. Founded by the twin brothers Laura and Antonio Carbonell, PUNTO DE FUGA is working on creative ideas for sharing a photo-book contend with a solid network of bookmakers (publishers, graphic designers, printers and photographers) from Europe.

Penelope Umbrico, Solar Eclipses, RVB, 2017


One book that has definitely entered our research for the Book Observatory. Next year will be extremely exciting, a new format for this project in being developped. Eeyes open!

In the meanwhile, you should visit RVB Gallery and take the book from their catalogue! Here is the text:

Penelope Umbrico’s project Solar Eclipses is made up of a collection of collages created using images of solar eclipses found in the New York Public Library Picture Collection. She creates these collages by placing the images on a scanner and arranging them to get as many as possible into each copy. This book is a collection of photocopies of those original images created on the library scanner. Umbrico’s approach to the project mediates on the duality between physical experience and the digitising of images printed on paper. The process of searching through the library’s collection today seems absurd in light of the facility and accessibility brought by the digital internet age, thus as the collection is gradually digitised, the material form of paper - a reflective medium requiring an external light source to be seen, and that often represents light in the image it supports - is now seen depicted online via the medium of the screen. Reflective paper becomes projective light. Umbrico chooses to focus on the solar eclipse at the library as the epitome of this relationship between the reflective and projective. The dynamic of the eclipse is the negation of natural light with that whose visibility is dependent on it. Thus her process reflects the same fascination with the photocopier itself as an “eclipser”: its light escapes around the paper it scans, creating the densest black – an inverted eclipse. White becomes light, and light becomes black.

Jiehao Su, Borderland, British Journal of Photography, 2015

Borderland (2012-2014) portrays a wandering journey in China, with the personal memories attached to the separation from native land and family. It began as a response to my mother’s death and has both geographical and psychological implications. The work is an attempt to rebuild my self-awareness through an autobiographical portrait of my homeland China.

Chers tous,

Les rencontres sur Les Architecture en Ruines chez Volume le 03.02.2017 et au Carreau du Temple le 04.02.2017 approchent!

Les projets ne cessent de nous parvenir!

En guise de reconnaissance pour ces architectures en ruines que nous n'allons pas évoquer pendant les deux jours, voici une série de portfolios d'images: décombres, nuages de fumée et fragments envahissent notre pensée.

- Quelles représentations du paysage émergent de cette approche de la ruine?
- Existe-t-il une pensée de la modernité suffisamment audacieuse pour aborder dans toute sa complexité la vie et la mort des architectures en ruines?

Dear all,

Before the 3rd of February we will be sharing an amount of images, portfolios, readings and other sources liked with the matter of the destruction of ladscape. PUNTO DE FUGA wants to dig into this topic that has since the 1970's made clear that modernity was contantly being re-built up upon its own ruins. It's its main constitution, a destruction provoqued and contained. What are the new landscapes of this disruptive and violent self destruction? Take a look....

Rencontres cinématographiques: projections et discussions


Pour la première fois dans sa courte incursion dans le cinéma, Punto de Fuga a réuni un corpus d’œuvres cinématographiques qui font l’aller-retour entre l’exercice de simulation d’un désastre qui est attendu ou anticipé et celui, plus inquiétant, de la destruction réelle, sans décor, enregistrée dans son état pur.

Dans la plupart des films choisis, la guerre, la catastrophe et la destruction programmée du paysage laissent entrevoir un nouveau Panorama Zéro, une nouvelle terre d’abandon du paysage. Que ce soit par la constitution de narratives du quotidien de la guerre dans The day nobody died, film d’Adam Broomberg et Oliver Chanarin, par l’enregistrement de simulations d’essais nucléaires faits par the Critical Art Ensemble ou par l'enregistrement des démolitions urbaines, l’œil du cinéaste semble se poser sur ces paysages fragmentés où plus rien d’exceptionnel ne semble arriver. L’œil avide du cinéaste est attrapé par ce temps arrêté.

Chers tous,

Nous sommes ravis de vous annoncer le programme de la rentrée. Le vendredi 03 février Benoit Fougeirol et Marie Sommer vont exposer leurs dernières séries photographiques. Dans ces deux projets, la ruine fait face à deux réalités que tout oppose : la première intitulée Tentatives d’épuisement I II II est celle, imperceptible, des ZUS (Zones Urbaines Sensibles) que le photographe dessine comme une cartographie d’un non lieu, un paysage rigide, fragmentaire et aride que l’œil sensible du photographie Benoit Fougeirol expose à une forme d’épuisement et de banalité inquiétants. La deuxième série s’intitule Circular Ruins expose les débris de ce qui était à l’époque de Tito, une importante école de Sciences Politiques, le cœur de la propagande Yougoslave laissé à l’abandon après la division du pays. Ici, Marie Sommer revient sur les traces d’une fin d’époque.

Dans ces projets photographiques, les temps de la ruine se confrontent : le premier parle de la ruine en gestation, de ces non lieux urbains dans lesquels chaque toute rue fait écho à une autre rue, les unes et les autres s’annulant pour ne décrire qu’une seule réalité, celle de l’isolement urbain et du fragment; la deuxième, renvoie au passé récent d’un bâtiment brutaliste, la bibliothèque Kumrovec, le lieu de l’abandon et de l’oubli d’une histoire récente, celle de la division de la Yougoslavie.

Le Vendredi 03 Février PUNTO DE FUGA invite ces deux photographes à entrer en dialogue avec d’autres. Une séance de signatures de livres va suivre. Plus d’informations sur notre événement Facebook bientôt !

Sian Davey, Photographe et psychothérapeute, Arte, 2016

"Sian Davey est photographe et psychothérapeute. Son sujet, c'est sa famille et principalement ses deux dernières filles, Alice et Martha. Avec une acuité saisissante et beaucoup de justesse, elle se saisit d'instants du quotidien qui disent les états d'âme et les doutes de ses enfants. Cette enquête intime se déroule dans le décor verdoyant du sud-ouest de l'Angleterre, dans le comté de Devon, entre Cornouilles et Dorset".

"The old world is dying and the new cannot be born;
in this interregnum a great variety of morbid symptoms appear.”
Antonio Gramsci

Reading back some essays about what it means to look at an image, what are the contexts and the philosophical conditions of seeing when it comes to talk about photography, some of this very widespread "po*******hy" of the image that is saying how difficult it is for us to understand its constant decompostion and loss of meaning in photography.

Without making any judgment about this facts, in a period where we are surrounded of captions and unnecessary images of terror, private stories, every day diaries and advertising where our bodies and our necessities and most of our subjectivity is interacting in complex ways with this saturated invasion of photography, we have to wonder: what is this new world of the image about? How could we take distance to this voyeuristic and obsessive intrusion of power and politics in our private existences?

This book is already giving a first visual interpretation. Its a most have, definitely. Its a reactive book. One that certainly Godard and Pasolini would look at.

BOOK RECOMMENDED #4:Amaury Hamon Missing BearEcal 2014http://amauryhamon.fr/missing-bear/A book about a disappearance. I...


Amaury Hamon
Missing Bear

A book about a disappearance. If it seems that this project has much of the aesthetics and the close-up captures of the Evidence by Larry Sultan & Mike Mandel it there is a very imperceptible element that gives to this social portraiture of a missing person, a more intimate and more evocative aspect of a set of images that do not prove anything but rather give the images all their expression. This series are not about saying what happened, the obvious absence of any reliable answer is there from the start, giving the line of what the image is not allowed to approach.

What is amazing about this photographic series, is that here the disappearance is what matters, this very contradictory state of mind where what lacks, the presence of memory, gestures and portraits are at the same time the expression of the absence of the person we look at, Timmy Aka Bear. It's not relevant if we get to know this man, what is more important here, is that the photographs are the direct expression of this personal search, this very intimate space where the past and the present are entering one same space and time line: that of a personal memory looking for meaning.
Maybe its all about that: letting the unbearable become acceptable to our eyes. The man is gone, but there is so much left of him anyhow.

The photographer describes the book as follows: A journal about the disappearance of Timmy AKA Bear, lost at sea. This book is made after a one week photography & editorial project, in collaboration with Clément Gicquel, Giacomo Bastianelli and Carmen Grange. Under the supervision of Robert Huber and Nicolas Haeni.
