Northern Ireland will have to leave the European Union due to UK's Brexit although a majority of its citizens voted to remain. There is a serious concern that Brexit will threaten the Peace Agreement of 1998 that ended the armed conflict between Protestant Unionists and Catholic Nationalists who live in homogeneous neighbourhoods that are divided by walls still today. Photographer Toby Binder has been documenting the daily life of teenagers in British working-class communities for more than a decade. After the Brexit referendum he focused his work on Belfast in Northern Ireland.
The images of the book Wee Muckers - Youth of Belfast were photographed in six different neighbourhoods of Belfast. On both sides of the "Peace-Walls". Each neighbourhood will be presented in one separate chapter showing the daily life of local youngsters. Problems they struggle with are similar - no matter which side they live on. And whatever the effects of Brexit will be, it's very likely that they will strike especially young people from both communities.
Includes previously unseen images from Anton Corbijn's photographic oeuvre Luxuriously bound with silk screen and foil blocking Accompanies an exhibition in Knokke-Heist, from 4 April 2020 to 5 July 2020 In MOOD/MODE, leading international photographer and filmmaker Anton Corbijn presents images from his extensive body of work in which he explores the crossover between photography and the world of fashion - in the broadest sense of the word. Corbijn's portraits of figures such as Alexander McQueen, Tom Waits and Naomi Campbell have now achieved iconic status. As visual director behind Depeche Mode and through his decades-long collaboration with U2 and others, he has made his mark on the way we look at an important aspect of contemporary culture. With MOOD/MODE, Anton Corbijn shows that fashion is everywhere. The book contains some 100 photographs, many of them published for the first time, and its world première will be in Knokke-Heist, running from 4 April to 5 July 2020. Anton Corbijn, born in 1955 in Strijen (NL), lives and works in The Hague (NL). Corbijn was born in the Netherlands, but lived and worked in London for 30 years. He is best known for his black and white photographs of actors, musicians and artists, though he cannot be seen as a celebrity photographer - rather as someone who captures personalities that intrigue him. Some of his photographs have become iconic images of modern pop culture. Besides his photographic oeuvre, Corbijn has designed stages, directed music videos and directed feature films. In 2007 he made his film debut with Control, about the life of Joy Division singer Ian Curtis. In 2014 his film A Most Wanted Man was released and in 2015 his new film Life - about the friendship between actor James Dean and photographer Dennis Stock - had its premiere. The artist has had major solo exhibitions at institutions such as the Bucerius Kunst Forum in Hamburg, Fotografiska in Stockholm, FOMU in Antwerp, Gemeentemuseum in The Hague, S.M.A.K. in Ghent, Kestner Gesellschaft in Hannover, Groninger Museum in Groningen, Münchner Stadtmuseum in Munich, Museum Morsbroich in Leverkusen, Museum Moderne Kunst in Dresden, Foam in Amsterdam, Museum Bochum, Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, Palazzo Fortuny in Venice, Galleria d'Arte Moderna in Bologna, Castello di Rivoli in Turin, Moscow Museum of Modern Art, amongst many others.
During fourteen trips between 1993 and 2010, Harvey Stein photographed in Mexico, primarily in small towns and villages and mostly during festivals (Day of the Dead, Easter, Independence Day) that highlight the country's unique relationship to death, myth, ritual and religion. This book is the definitive expression of Stein's intimate relationship with the people and culture of Mexico. The images show fragments of what Mexico is, a country of incredible contrasts and contradictions. Mexico is about piercing light and deep shadow, of stillness and quick explosiveness, of massive tradition and creeping progress, of great religious belief but with corruption as a way of life. It is a land of ritual and legend, of vibrant life and dancing skeletons, a country next to the United States yet so far away, and with over 50 percent of its population under 20 years old but where old age is revered. In these masterful photo series, Mexico - Between Life and Death Stein explores these unsettling disparities. Send an email to email@example.com to purchase the book directly.
