Alternative Landscapes, 2012.
This montreal-based photographer has created the series ‘Alternative Landscapes’ due to the need of something else, because he actually hates landscapes. Thus he decided to stage his own vision of landscape and created an art installation where he lit various outdoor locations with a glowing little light square. By the way: the pictures aren’t photoshopped: Paillé suspended a 1×1 m cube for his beautiful illumination that have kind of a poetic space and time purpose.
KEN DOMON [Hiroshima (Kenko-sha), 1958]
The first major Japanese book to tackle the horrors of Hiroshima. Beautifully printed in deep gravure with Joan Miro’s distinctive cover. As one of the most important memorials to the Hiroshima bombing, Domon’s book employs respectful, yet unflinching gravure images to document the bombing’s atrocities. With his direct, unflinching approach, he was the first to undertake a major project on Hiroshima. The series deals with the physical destruction of the city, but focuses mainly on the lives of the hibakusha (the atomic bomb survivors).
