Unseen Photo Fair 2014: Discover Unseen Talent in Amsterdam

"Unseen is not just about pinpointing and facilitating emerging talent but also making sure that a market is created for these young photographers and their work." – Pjotr de Jong, creative director of Unseen, Amsterdam

This week we had a peak into creative director Pjotr de Jong's family home in The Netherlands and had the chance to hear his thoughts on how the Unseen Photo Fair came about.

Taking place until 21st of September, we recommend stopping by if you’re in Amsterdam, as we think it’s definitely worth the trip. Find more info about the fair here and read our interview with Pjotr here.

Spotlight on: Villa Sarabhai by Le CorbusierVilla Sarabhai is the house that Le Corbusier completed for Madame Manorama in Ahmedabad, India, in 1955.
The architect’s technical response to the climatic conditions of India is brilliant in multiple ways, for example the roof is covered with earth to become a garden with a lawn and charming flowers.
However, a particularly beautiful detail is its external slide and stair combination. Made of concrete as a single entity, the slide goes from the first floor terrace straight into the swimming pool while the stair is an extracted zigzag to its side. Find more pictures here.

Photos of the book

Window Seat - Jennilee Marigomen
Published by New Documents 
Edition of 500
Hardcover  / 22.8cm x 29.7cm / 64 pages / $35
Special edition of 25 with 8” x 11” print / $125
Printed in Korea
Window Seat is a sequence of simple and beautiful gestures that both acknowledges the metaphor of photography-as-window and consciously resists reading the world metaphorically. Rather, Jennilee Marigomen’s photographs show the benefit of careful attention to the overlooked and often ephemeral beauty in our everyday surroundings. 

The succession of objects and scenes slowly reveal the project’s context: one comes to recognize the seaside town’s whitewashed walls, sunseekers, blue sea, and bluer swimming pools. Yet even as street signs and warm light hint at a geographical referent for the work, the images in Window Seat continually veer away from a unified narrative, documenting neither a place nor a journey, in service of the beautiful particular. Within the project, the world’s pieces are celebrated through fragmentary, isolated, and quietly beautiful frames untasked with telling a larger, linear story. Rather, the sequence of images suggests that the world is made up of neglected sites imbedded within, and constitutive of, the everyday, which the keen sensibilities of a talented photographer can animate, arrange, and make deeply compelling for the viewer.  - Nich McElroy

From early examples of books by Edward Steichen, to publications by Alec Soth and Tierney Gearon, photobooks for children are not a new phenomenon. Last year, The British Journal of Photography featured a report on a new wave of childrens’ books. It identified that, although children are engaging with the language of photography at an increasingly young age, it may be a difficult medium to use for the making of childrens’ books, as such publications encourage young readers to use their imaginations to build stories, and photography cannot escape its indexical or direct link to the world of fact. With this in mind, it is clear photography needs to be employed by childrens’ book makers in engaging and creative ways, teaching children not just to look at images but how to read them too, be them factual or fictional. Enter Jason Fulford. His typically playful approach to image-making has seen him create books that are puzzles; books that play with word association and books that invite us to solve visual conundrums. In This Equals That – his new book for children made in collaboration with graphic designer Tamara Shopsin and published by Aperture Foundation – he works with a similar formula. The clever pairing of images build a small encyclopaedia of visual associations and equations, and encourage readers to think about number, shape and colour and the lovely ways in which fragments of the world mirror each other and slot together. Though made as a childrens’ book, This Equals That is a puzzle that we can take pleasure in solving at any age, as we consider how the colours of flowers reflect those in stained glass windows, or the curve of an orange relates to a small hole in the sand.
