Benoit Grimbert’s ‘A1: The Great North Road’ | The Photobook Club

Benoit Grimbert’s ‘A1: The Great North Road’ | The Photobook Club | Visual Culture and Communication | Scoop.it

The first Paul Graham photographs I saw were images taken from his ‘Troubled Land‘ series. I was about twenty, and I remember the impression of contemporaneity and novelty (in comparison with other photographers working at that time in the field of landscape photography) that these subtle colored images produced on me.

Interrogations: terrifying real-life photographs from Ukraine - lens culture photography weblog

Interrogations: terrifying real-life photographs from Ukraine - lens culture photography weblog | Visual Culture and Communication | Scoop.it

Canadian photojournalist Donald Weber first went to Ukraine during the Orange Revolution of 2004, on assignment. Following that first trip, he soon returned, and spent the next six years in Russia and Ukraine trying to photograph contemporary life, and its hardships, as well as the vestiges of a still-powerful, hidden system.

Interrogations is the result of his personal quest to uncover the hidden meaning of private, unpleasant encounters with unrestricted Power. It is a simple, elegant book that sears itself into your memory.
