SUSAN DERGES: SHADOWS ON THE WALL - CAMERALESS PHOTOGRAPHY FROM 1851 TO TODAY, MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS, HOUSTON

Drawn from the permanent collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, 'Shadows on the Wall' presents 50 evocative images created with light and chemistry but without the use of a camera.
The images reflect a range of techniques as visually diverse as the movements of art to which they belong—recording the precise outlines of botanical specimens, the alchemy of the darkroom, or the abstraction of form. Although sometimes simply made, the photographs explore the complex relationship between reality and representation.

The exhibition runs from 31 August - 30 November 2014

AWOISKA VAN DER MOLEN: REVIEW OF 'SEQUESTER' BY CONSCIENTIOUS PHOTO MAGAZINE

"Thankfully, Van der Molen’s landscapes have now been turned into a book, Sequester ... However, it’s one thing to make a nicely printed book and quite another to be able to translate the experience of standing in front of the prints into book form ... If the prints, when viewed on a wall, draw the viewer in, the book does the very same thing ... evoke emotions and feelings.

Easily one of the best photobooks in a long time."

DIANA MATAR AND AWOISKA VAN DER MOLEN: BOOK SIGNING, PARIS PHOTO 2014

Diana Matar and Awoiska van der Molen will be signing copies of their newly published monographs 'Evidence' and 'Sequester'.

Diana Matar's 'Evidence' tells the story of absence in relation to the personal loss felt through her father-in-law's disappearance. A compilation of six years of work, the book contains archival images and diary extracts alongside Matar's beautiful and powerful photographs.

Sean O'Hagan writes of Awoiska van der Molen's first photobook 'Sequester', "it is laden with an inordinate sense of silence. Her monochrome landscapes ... alert us in their meditative way not just to the thereness, but also to what James Joyce called the “whatness” of things."

'Sequester' has been shortlisted for the 2014 Paris Photo Aperture Foundation Photobook Awards.

Book signings for both publications take place on Friday 13 November, Paris Photo, Grand Palais.
