Alessandro Imbriaco wins the European Publishers Award for Photography - British Journal of Photography

Alessandro Imbriaco wins the European Publishers Award for Photography - British Journal of Photography | Visual Culture and Communication | Scoop.it

"The European Publishers Award for Photography was established in 1994 to offer photographers a chance to see one of their "substantial, completed and unpublished photographic book project" released in five editions across five European countries.

Previous winners have included Bruce Gilden, Simon Norfolk, Paolo Pellegrin, Jacob Aue Sobol, Klavdij Sluban and Davide Monteleone among many others. This year, Italian photographer Alessandro Imbriaco was selected from a shortlist of seven photographers, which included Kurt Tong, Luca Desienna and Fernando Moleres. Moleres was shortlisted for his project Behind Bars, Juveniles in Sierra Leone Prisons, which BJP reviewed last year.
Imbriaco won the prize for his work on Rome's housing problems. "This led him to explore the peripheral and hidden spaces of the city," say the judges. "The Garden is one of those places. It is a small swamp under a flyover on the ring road circling the eastern outskirts of Rome - a failed nature reserve that ended up protecting other living creatures: Angela, a six-year-old child, was born here and grew up here with her parents Piero, from Sicily, and Luba, from Russia."
Imbriaco's book will be published at the end of the year by Actes Sud in France, Blume in Spain, Dewi Lewis Publishing in the UK, Kehrer Verlag in Germany and Peliti Associati in Italy.

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.

The art of critical art | rekto:verso

The art of critical art | rekto:verso | Visual Culture and Communication | Scoop.it

These times call for opposition. At least, that’s what political theorist Chantal Mouffe has been saying for years, and she is the living proof. While consensus politics rules, the renowned philosopher defends the importance of disagreement and explicit ideological conflict. She asserts also artists have a role to fulfil: ‘Critical art makes us realize that there are alternatives.’

NHK Hybridcast making broadcast TV interactive with HTML5 | Visual Culture and Communication | Scoop.it

Hybridcast is an infrastructure system being developed by NHK, with a view to commercial use in 2013. This system combines broadcasting with the Internet, to enable a variety of TV-centered services.

 

At this year's NHK Science & Technology Research Laboratories Open Day, NHK exhibited prototype receivers, developed together with manufacturers, as well as the service concept.

 

If used in conjunction with sports broadcasts, updates about the players and the game can be synchronized with the broadcast timeline and superimposed on the screen.
