  • kengo sato

  • Kengo Sato (Japan), a passionate amateur by his own definition, fell in love with analog photography in 2005 when he stumbled across his grandfathers cameras (Nikkormat, Mamiya) while going through some old boxes. He was immediately amazed by the overall organic feel of photos captured on film which he found impossible to replicate with digital cameras. Researching analog techniques, he discovered lomography and soon realized its potential after acquiring a few cameras. Although he still may lack some technical specialist knowledge, his trial and error learning process has created him a personal guideline through his own experiences and interpretations, and thanks to hundreds of films he has invested on.

  • Kengo Sato focusses on lomography because this technique offers him lots of possibilities and manual freedom, and permits him to create images he has in his mind, trying to replicate the nostalgic feeling he wants to transmit somehow. He loves to manipulate cameras by covering the light meters with fingers or duct tape and using accessories that allow him to play around with his images without having to use photoshop effects. He uses color flashes, splitzers, holga kits, expired films, rewinding used films to reload onto other cameras for multiple exposures, etc ... There is something around these formats impossible to get from digital photography. Trying out all the brands of films has also been a huge inspiration, as each film shows a different life and color depending on the camera, the film iso, the shutter speed and the light available at certain time of the day. He declares that up to this day theres nothing that can compare to the excitement he gets when processing a film and ascertain if he gets close to what he intended to capture. As can be seen in his series, Sato has a thing for multiple exposures where he transmits a certain feeling to the beholder.

  • francisco reina

  • Latentis, hidden, undiscovered, Francisco Reinas images uncover views of everyday moments. Results of modern, social and global concerns. Focusing on the average human experience and interaction with power.

    His projects reflect a concern with the progressive construction of social reality by social media, discernible not only in the increasing importance of images, but also in the gradual incorporation of a simulated world into different realms of daily life, such as politics and culture. His critical realism comes from these reflections and is achieved by metaphors.

    Images are the centre of his work, but not icons. These depictions are constantly filtered through his personal experience and view of the world, and repeatedly questioned as materials and emotional entities, as both presence and memory.

  • Francisco Reina (Seville, Spain, 1979) explores through his photos the liquid modernity of our present world. This liquid modernity, a concept developed by sociologist Zygmunt Bauman, details the mechanism that blew apart the supposed stability of our world. The certainty of our shelter is deflating at breakneck speed. Distress, uneasiness, and uncertainty dominate our day-to-day reality and no action could be worse than remaining static or attempting to return to our false sense of security, where speculators make, unmake, destroy, alienate, corrupt and swindle mankind.

    Francisco Reinas photos depict our world falling apart in front of us. He speaks not of the individual himself, but as a piece of a corrupt and poisoned paradigm. What he transmits is nameless, shapeless and impossible, but we are all aware of it.

    Nature, with its unpredictable and oppressive enormity, dominated humanity for centuries. Today its the political, economic, and social powers who arrest, repress, and box us in. No way out.

    Despite their harshness, Reinas photos amaze with their ability to salvage the beauty in the filth that surrounds us. To offer the observer obvious and naked truth without relinquishing fantasy is neither trivial nor contradictory. His images, pure allegories, must be pondered and felt simultaneously, and so the conflicting universe they portray and the narrative ferocity they underline.

  • Timeless, original, revolutionary.

    Absolutely exciting project produced by imPrintMGZN in collaboration with Mara Mutebox

    on her visit to Amsterdam last summer. Timeless, original and revolutionary, the 3-word mantra invoked by Eiko Ishioka as her three criteria by

    which to judge the quality of works, came as the perfect inspiration.

    Eiko Ishioka was the first female designer to receive the prestigious Nissenbi Grand Prix for

    graphic design and art direction in Japan in the sixties. When she moved to New York she focused

    on other disciplines and is actually better known for her work as Costume Designer for Bram Stokers

    Dracula (1992, Academy Award), Tarsem Singhs The Cell (2000), The Fall (2006) and

    Immortals (2011) and for the Beijing-2008 Olympics, amongst others.

    inspired by Eiko Ishioka.

    Sally Fenaux, founder of imPrintMGZN, developed most of her professional career in costume design and met Mara Mutebox back in 2005 when they were updating their digital photography knowledge at the Istituto Europeo di Design.

    Eiko Ishioka passed away last January 2012, and this is imPrintMGZNs tibute to her and her extremely creative legacy. From early in her career she always imposed herself a quality test of the work she produced: Is my work able to stand the test of time? Is my work new and original? Is my work expressing a novel way of looking at things, revolutionary and not a version of someone elses idea?

  • matthew soltesz

  • Occasionally, I would hop a train and just take it to the end. Living there was overwhelming at first; everything moves differently, like being on the sea. Walking the streets was like an old surrealist film; anything could be coming around the next corner, and it would be normal for that place. Eventually, though, I began to perceive a pattern; a logic to it all. But it is a old logic that is born from the jungle, and impossible to fully grasp as a westerner. For all the time I have spent in South-East Asia, there are many things that I will never understand. There is still mystery in this world, and that is the beauty of it.

    This set of photographs was taken in the spring of 2011 in Thailand, Cambodia, and Java. It may be the heat of the sun through the thick air, but everything in South-East Asia seems to be amplified. There is an intense, pervasive energy of movement and spirit, and at the same time the stillness that exists there is the most striking that I've ever experienced. I was living in an empty warehouse in the Chinatown slum of Bangkok for seven months, away from all but the slightest trace of western culture that seems to have crept into most of the world.

  • Matthew Soltesz, a photographer and sound artist, was born and raised in rural New England. He holds a B.A. in Photography and a B.A. in Middle Eastern History from the University of New Hampshire and the School of Oriental and African Studies in London. He has spent the past seven years travelling and working in Europe, South-East Asia, and across the United States, recording sound and shooting film. He is currently based in New York area.

  • garri frischer

  • When Garri Frisher and her team create images, their main interest is to produce something that results not only visually pleasing, but something that hopefully

    raises at the same time a thought within the observer. The ISAK series were created as

    some sort of subtle gender questioning. This was achieved with the simple means of

    having a masculine male model wearing soft and feminine hairdos. Nothing really over the top, just a friendly and gentle wink at

    what society categorizes as feminine versus masculine, and creating with this argument

    a pleasant tension in the imagery.

    Garri Frisher (28, Gothenburg, Sweden) is involved with photography since she got her first camera at the age of fifteen, and started working with photography three years later. For two years she was assistant to Marco Grizelj and Kristian Krn at their AORTA agency ( Then she went to London where she studied for three years at the University of the Arts London - London College of Fashion, and received a BA (Hons) in Fashion Photography. Worked as picture desk assistant at Wallpaper an GQ Magazines, while persevering on her own portfolio on the side. After four and a half years in London, Frisher returned to Sweden in 2010 where she got an Advertising education, and now she works as the in-house Art Director at a Swedish fashion brand.

  • kantfish emanuele giusto

  • With his images, Emanuele Giusto pursues the more than real concept. He regards the complex reality system as a set of unique microcosms. Werner Eisenbergs Uncertainty Principle states that when we acquire certain information through observation, at the same time we loose unavoidably some other information, by physical law. When our attention focuses on one reality, the surroundings get inevitably more or less blurred. Giustos analysis is the product of his unique look, where his intuition plays a fundamental role.In his series the more than real concept concentrates on the burning man, the Garden of Delights, that huge human artwork where sixty thousands people build a town in the heart of the desert and stuff it with three hundred giant art pieces. There, new lines of logic are born and find each other, and profit from their coexistence and exchange. The worlds most incredible experimentation. For 25 years about 600.000 people took part in this its not what you get, its what you share participative philosophy. This concept contributes to the success of the newest mentalities, like the open source movement. Mental attitudes typical of the global and technological world where the community regards you more by what you share than by what you own.

  • Emanuele Giusto (Italy) is a visual artist, creative director and reporter. He creates Reports, Books and Photos for media, institutional, advertising and art contexts. He is currently based in Madrid.With KANTFISH ( he produces videos and animations for FAO United Nations. His articles and reports are being published in LEspresso (Italy), El Pas Semanal (Spain), The Guardian (UK) and Foreign Policy (USA), and his photos are distributed by the Associated Press agency.

    Books published: Around Europe for 30 Euros (Feltrinelli Editore) and photo-book Angola (Grupo Planeta).

    Mescaline, ou dautres tentatives de realit.

    A collaboration between artist Mara Mutebox and writer Mara Sevilla, inspired by the life and work of Francesca Woodman.

  • She said:

    -Hi, Vince, hi and the last hello melt away-. This is what I am. What you cant see.

    The holes are a skin of black threads with a diamond shaped reflection in the mirror. Come around, fear is a kind of resistance.1. Slim down, mistreat your body. Massacre your skin. I want to see whats inside. The papers fall off the wall like the change of seasons. Like a reptile, like you do.

  • 2. The stuff should be properly exposed. The best conditions are those of a preventive asphyxia. It accidentally occurs:

    -Then at one point I did not need to translate the notes. They went directly to my hands.

  • 3. And a chunk of glass left by someone on this floor the smell of death in our room, you know well-. In the vision, the white clothes appear tainted with ink which seems blood which seems nothing.

    She shouts at herself:-I think I tried too hard to see why I do that i do- we are the walls of our dismantable home.

  • 4. The birds experiment with you. A black coat, thats all they see.

    -Ive turned into a tree, into a branch. I can climb. A pinhead eye waiting for the decay of the furniture, the moment when endless lightspots devastate this place. Diabolic fractals take over the plane landscape scene: where the quite blue of the sea spreads out, an odd creature dwells. Its tentacles can embrace.

    -These things arrived from my grandmother: the odd geometry of time. Notebooks full of empty hulls.

    Written by Mara Sevilla.

  • Looking at myself I see me grow.

    Addicted to women and our fight, to addictions. Addicted to the ego, others and mine.

    Rendered to ink, titanium and surgical steel, perforations, experiments. Experiment with my own body to create my own work, my own destruction, and carefully I observe the creation of others, the future of smoky waves that explode and burn, without a trace, only to learn. Liliths daughter, I take my sin, I like it, I believe in my life. I enjoy art, bodies, feelings, and the possibility to take them up to the maximal hedonistic height, evasive, and at the moment ... continuously lost.

    Every night inhaling a torn combination of notes, books and pictures.

    by Mara Mutebox

    Mescaline, ou dautres tentatives de realit.

  • Looking at myself I can see how I continue to grow. Dont know whereto, but always surrounded by physical and visual stuff. Elements who enable me to blow out my ideas and to make them come true, into something that can arouse the primitive instincts of a beholder, and not a passive one as I see it. Interact, with myself, with you, with a crowd. Interact and transmit, virally, my passion for visual addictions.

    Wearing Sylvia Plaths words your limitations will crucify you, Im just trying to defeat every limitation that shows up in front of me, and do it in the most visceral way possible, spitting out my art. Cant do it any other way.

    With my brain always crowded with sentences and images accompanying each other, and they splinter, unite, merge, inhale. Who am I? Really, I dont know how to describe myself. Photography has been my escape, sort of therapy, introspection. Art, which I suckle since birth, gave me a new birth. I created an identity. An identity within its own world of still and ethereal images.

    Mara Mutebox (1988, Segovia, Spain) has been exploring artistic imaging for years from a great variety of perspectives. She studied Audio-Visual Communication, only to understand images are her true passion. Studied Fashion Photography at the Instituto Europeo di Design to organize her photographic self-tuition, always chemical till then. Today shes a Fine Arts student, unhurried, exploring all available techniques. Mara intermingles always literature with her activities, and even more so with her photography. With a camera at her fingertips all the time, she got to work for the film industry, to exhibit, to carry out cooperative projects with other artists, from all scopes and countries. She is currently based in Madrid and investigating her new passion: ink and tattoo art.

    As someone observes my photos Im getting naked, beyond my skin. The tattoo on that skin fills me, helps me to give reality back to images that sometimes turn out too dreamy and loose their meaning. Hence Ive chosen a word like mescaline to straighten all this out. I need to create as much as to breath. And I see far too complicated to decide right now where my work is going to. Fetishist of light, of the erotism of shapes, of the sensuality of motion, of the punctum of a look. As a material Diogenes, I recycle all thats around me, including myself. As an emotional Diogenes, Im a sentimental bulimic. Every single piece I produce is an expulsion of all that hurts or thrills me. Transforming it into beauty fascinates me. The beauty of the disobedience of my feelings.

  • defotomeisjes

  • Event photographers extraordinaire. A better description of De Fotomeisjes is almost unlikely. This dutch collective of six young female photographers is notorious for their unique ability to reproduce in their images the very best moments of every situation. They go out, blend in and capture great moments, emotions and atmosphere. Their core business is producing journalistic reports of events in the broadest sense of the word. In fact they reshape every assignment into a great visual story. Born out of the baffling fact that people always feel the need to pose and smile as soon as theres a camera in sight. Born out of their love for the moment. The spontaneity of their images makes humanity so much fun. The vivid colors and the dynamics are characteristics of their work, with an obvious mystique that creates a first-class souvenir in each photo.

  • pablo lpez jordan

  • Pure Fiction is the first photo-series created by Pablo Lpez Jordn for exhibition, and is build up by twelve black and white digital compositions. The series explores the movement, the shape and the dimensions of the body. His inspiration procedes from the ufo culture, a social movement from the sixties and seventies, based on the beliefs of afterlife and alien reality, a source of phony and bogus photos, like the fake one on the I want to believe poster. His aesthetics recall x-rays images, evolving into animal or alien shapes, with a few surrealist strokes, and exploring the multiple dimensions theories via his photographic art. The series show a chronological account of rescue and ascension up to the afterlife where the body gets transformed and freed. Pablo mixes reality and fiction using a moderately purist technique, and only a few of his images were retouched digitally.

  • Pablo Lpez Jordn (1978, Spain) is an audio-visual artist from Murcia, and a photographer by inheritance. He holds a degree in Communication Sciences and his work embraces video-art, video-poetry, sound art, sound installation and live installation, exploring the creative improvisation, asynchrony and error to analyze nature and human perception from a social and emotional point of view. Member of the artistic network [aadk] Aktuelle Architektur der Kultur. Exhibits: Empire Gallery (London), 10 Gales Art Gallery (London), Espacio Cultural (Bilbao), Contemporary Art Museum (Istambul), and Centro Negro (Murcia).
