"Maplewood, NJ is the first of a 6 section series which explores the personal decay of the "hometown". At times both ode and eulogy, Max captures the quite xenophobic urges that arise when the familiar turns foreign. Maplewood, NJ: Prologue contains several black and white images of relevant people and place of this project that the artist took two years ago. "

Sound Clash

Edition of 100

"These photographs were taken at the Caribbean carnival in Notting Hill, between 2009 and 2012. A place where the culture is very much felt and music is the absolute protagonist. Caribbean rhythms, ska, reggae, dub are just some of the genres heard in the UK, and more specifically at the carnival. I took the photos before the sound systems began to pump music: the calm before the storm. A couple of hours later and the atmosphere would have been totally different and thousands of people would be huddled under these sound totems, symbolising the street culture linked to the carnival."

"Our concepts and rationalizations might have lent themselves to abandon the state of despair at times, they too fulfill the sense of hollowness. Whereas the subject of our search is the real, our understandings are muted, transformed and reconstructed. Much like Jack Gilbert denounces it in the opening of his stunning The Forgotten Dialect of the Heart: “How astonishing it is that language can almost mean, and frightening that it does not quite”. For this series I xeroxed black rectangles on top of Thomas Struth’s photographs (from the book Dandelion Room) using painters tape to protect the colorful flowers from being obliterated."

Edition of 520 - signed and numbered
£25 + p&p

"Ghost is the soul or spirit, it can appear translucent or as barely visible wispy shapes, almost invisible to the naked eye" this sentence resonates truth in more ways than one when it comes to Alex Partola's new book. Through his photography he manages to capture the plight of a misunderstood community that craves the freedom of artistic expression while seeking no personal recognition. The artists he photographs are shadows not only in the dark, but also to the art community that so adamantly rejects their premise.

"A4-sized documents create a map of our lives that expand in all directions, not just our geophysical presence but our socio-economic footprints, our corporeal frailties and interpersonal relationships. It heralds both our very beginning and our exit with bureaucratic efficiency. We become both author and subject of paperwork that circulates between the institutions of our public and private selves.From the real to the imagined, everything crosses the proportions of A4. This is even truer of the pages I have found on the street. A ubiquitous feature of our urban environment, they lie stained, ripped and embossed by traffic. Rejected or misplaced, these documents litter the streets with unwanted and unneeded information, oblique fragments of life waiting to be pulped into the ground."

"The ABC of Popular Desire is a visual index of the most popular internet searches made between January and May 2013. Based on data provided by meta search engines, the compilation reveals internet users' real interests; sports, celebrities, entertainment, new products, catastrophes, crimes, and the occasional political event. Arranged in alphabetical order, the survey turns out to be an unpredictable mix of photographs that were, like the news agenda itself, hot one day and forgotten the next. For many, the absence of expected searches may be surprising, but this could also indicate that the data we receive from the search engine is as biased and tailored as the results of the searches we perform."
