Strasbourg : Joseph Heinrich Darchinger Wirtschaftswunder

Strasbourg : Joseph Heinrich Darchinger Wirtschaftswunder | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

La Chambre in Strasbourg, France, is holding an exhibition of the color work of Joseph Heinrich Darchinger, the first since his death in 2013. It was no more than eight years after the surrender of the Nazi government when Dardinger set out on his photographic journey through the West of a divided Germany. The bombs of World War II had reduced the country’s major cities to deserts of rubble. Yet his pictures show scarcely any signs of the downfall of a civilization. Not that the photographer was manipulating the evidence: he simply recorded what he saw.

Checking into Honeymoon Hotel with Juno Calypso's alter-ego Joyce

Checking into Honeymoon Hotel with Juno Calypso's alter-ego Joyce | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

“I build sets and create scenes for her,” Juno explains on her website, “imaginary bedrooms in which I perform critical studies into modern rites of seduction and beauty, and the laboured construction of femininity. Objects once perceived as radical, innovative, fun and nutritious – an electronic anti-wrinkle mask, computer equipment from the 1980s, baby oil, a tin of cold meat – have become joyless and oppressive. Joyce appears alone, consumed by artifice; her glazed appearance acting as a mirror to the exhaustion felt whilst bearing the dead weight of constructed femininity.”

New York: 31 essential items by Neil Winokur | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Neil Winokur is an archetypal urban specimen, late twentieth-century model. Born in Queens, New York, in 1945; educated in city public schools and at the Bronx campus of Hunter College (where he got his BA in 1967 with a major in math and physics), Winokur has lived in New York nearly all his life save for the requisite hippy year (1971 in his case) in San Francisco. “I function best here,” he says.

Newly discovered studio of the week! Introducing Studio-Set

Newly discovered studio of the week! Introducing Studio-Set | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Jasio Stefanski and Lauren Thorson are Studio-Set – a creative duo who have been working together since 2012, and who now have a host of commissioned and self-initiated projects to their name. They’ve made work for the LA Art Book Fair, a Polish Film Festival in New York and a Museum of the Portuguese Language in São Paulo, and each time they switch up their style, darting from brightly coloured printed posters to animated GIFs, with some happy book design thrown in for good measure. They might still be working out in which of these styles they’re happiest, but for the time being we’re glad to be able to revel in all three, and to give credit where credit is due to the studio’s flexibility.

Things things things! The best things sent to us by good old fashioned post | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

The area around my desk has all but been taken over by all the great stuff everyone sends us. It’s been really tough picking out the best bits and pieces but the situation was fast becoming something of a health and safety hazard and imminent danger has a way of making everything much clearer. This month there’s everything from a card game to a photography magazine to a loo roll of design criticism (what?). Here’s Things!

Taos, New Mexico: the lost album of Dennis Hopper

Taos, New Mexico: the lost album of Dennis Hopper | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Drugstore Camera feels like a stumbled-upon treasure, a disposable camera you forgot about and only just remembered to develop. Yet in this case the photographer is Dennis Hopper and the photographs are never before published. Shot in Taos, New Mexico, where Hopper was based following the production of Easy Rider in the late 60s, the series was taken with disposable cameras and developed in drugstore photo labs.

Libération nouvelle formule, mirage ou réalité augmentée ?

Libération nouvelle formule, mirage ou réalité augmentée ? | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

« Dans un monde boule­versé par la révolu­tion numérique, les journa­listes de Libéra­tion ont décidé de se réinventer » c’est en ces mots que quelques jours plus tôt, Laurent Joffrin, le direc­teur de la publi­ca­tion, annon­çait le lance­ment de la nouvelle formule de Libération.

« Boule­versée » est proba­ble­ment le terme qui définis­sait le mieux la situa­tion de Libé depuis quelques années. Libéra­tion pourtant figure de proue d’une presse papier ambitieuse toujours prête à questionner son média, a pourtant totale­ment raté sa révolu­tion numérique. Tout un symbole !

ECAL Library's insight:

Libération French newspaper, yet figurehead of an ambitious press media always ready to question his medium, has yet totally missed his digital revolution.

As is to be expected, the new issue of The Gourmand is brimming with the good stuff. With a particularly North American tang, in the latest offering from the epicurean biannual readers will find everything from an essay on John Cage’s lifelong obsession with mushrooms, a short piece on Yoko Ono’s food instruction pieces and Black Panther founder Bobby Seale’s BBQ bill of rights, to a home visit with legendary food writer Claudia Roden. “As always,” David said, “we met some incredible people, collaborated with some great artists, ate a lot of very good food and drank too much.”

Mesmerising photographs from the sky to bring some perspective to your day

Mesmerising photographs from the sky to bring some perspective to your day | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Benjamin and his team create and share one “Overview” – the site’s name for each image – every day, to highlight the impact we have had on the Earth. “We work with Digital Globe’s database of satellite imagery and then add an artistic orientation to bring out the mesmerising aesthetic that this perspective provides. Each Overview ultimately starts with a thought experiment. We consider the places where man has left his mark on the planet and then conduct the necessary research to identify locations (and the corresponding geo-coordinates) to convey that idea.”

Meryl Meisler : Purgatory & Paradise, Sassy '70s Suburbia & The City

Meryl Meisler : Purgatory & Paradise, Sassy '70s Suburbia & The City | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Meryl Meisler's Purgatory & Paradise: SASSY '70s Suburbia & The City juxtaposes intimate images of home life on Long Island alongside NYC street and night life – the likes of which have never been seen. Quirky, nostalgic and a bit naughty, it’s a genuine cultural capsule of a decade that captivates today’s generation. The photos and stories illustrate Meryl’s coming of age: The South Bronx, suburbia, The Mystery Club, dance lessons, Girl Scouts, the Rockettes, the circus, school, mitzvahs, proms, weddings, gay Fire Island, the Hamptons, feminists, happy hookers, CBGB, Punks, Disco, After Hours and Go-Go Bars, Jewish and LGBT Pride, street life, home theatrics, holidays, friendship, family and love. She had to photograph it all to make sense of it, hold onto the time, release and now finally share it. The ’70s were sassy, but also sweet, and so was Meryl.

Photographer of nudes and Parisian passers-by David Luraschi's Bookshelf | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Paris-based photographer David Luraschi is as adept at photographing undulating hills as he is sprawling nudes, and he brings his unique perspective to both. You might know him best for his series of photographs of people spotted on the streets of Paris photographed from behind – a project that started on his Instagram and has since been splashed about all over the internet.

This week we asked David to show us his five favourite books and his selection was as diverse as his subject matter. Here he is!
