The Washington Post – Same difference: Photographs of 32 hotel rooms in 32 countries reveal few variations

by Rebecca Powers

"Enter Swiss photographer Roger Eberhard, who spent a year documenting 32 Hilton hotel rooms in 32 countries. The result: a postcard, of sorts, in the form of “Standard”, a book that’s as quiet as a readied room. [...] Like the photographs, the book’s essays examine the ubiquity of one-night homes. Does the sameness serve a purpose, much like the practicality of a travel wardrobe? Or does it reflect a growing global monotony?"

British Journal of Photography – Show: Ina Jang's Utopia

by Susanna D'Aliesio

"Delving into the depiction of women in Korea and Japan, Jang found a striking stereotype in the so-called gravure (or glamour) magazines popular there – women who are shown as girlish and submissive, sporting pink cheeks and a school uniform “even if they were older than 25”."

VTph Visual Thoughts – Rinko Kawauchi. Halo

"Ein warmer, süsslicher Sandelholzduft umweht mich, sobald ich die Fotografien der japanischen Fotografin Rinko Kawauchi betrachte. Herangetragen wird er von einem sanften Windhauch aus der Ferne. Im Diesseits finden wir die Spuren des Alltags, hier finden die Dinge statt – im Hier und Jetzt – nicht später und auch nicht an einem anderen Tag. Der Shintoismus, die Ur-Religion Japans, gibt der Natur, ihren Elementen und ihren Göttern Raum."

British Journal of Photography  – Seba Kurtis' new work on migrants goes on show

by Donatella Montrone

'“Nobody wants to leave their homeland,” reflects Seba Kurtis of the current refugee crisis along the Mediterranean coastlines, arguably the biggest humanitarian crisis in a century. “Sometimes you just have no options.” The Manchester-based photographer is in the unique position of being able to convey the migrant narrative from both perspectives – having left his native Argentina on a tourist visa shortly after the nation’s financial collapse in 2001, he made his way to Tenerife, where he found illegal work on construction sites. “You’re treated like a second-class citizen because you don’t have ‘the right’ to be there,” he says.'

Something Curated – Must-See Photographers At Photo London 2017

by Alexandra Sara

"Lieko Shiga’s work is based on a sense of unease with the mechanics of daily life. She deftly explores the vulnerability of the human body; if the bodies were not suspended or propped up, they would seemingly fall or collapse. For Shiga, photographing the body is more than just a documentation of the physical world, but also a means of choreographing an emotional and psychological inner world."

Regarding Design Magazine (re:D) – One Life. Jun Ahn

"One Life, a photo series by Ahn Jun, MFA Photography '10, employs apples as symbols of human existence, pulled by the forces of destiny and chance. Viewers encounter Ahn's "decisive moments" – striking, ambiguous vignettes of artfully framed apples suspended in midair in natural landscapes and on urban streets. Taken together, the images bid us consider life and its uncertainties."

Daily Photo News – Exhibition: 'Halo' by Rinko Kawauchi

"Another part of the series depicts the festival ‚DaShuhua’ in the Hebei province in China. The festival has been around for many centuries and originated when people began to throw molten iron against the city walls. The sparks coming off and forming a rain of light served as the poor people’s equivalent to beautiful yet expensive fireworks. 'For those who live in poverty, every day is a battle in its own way — perhaps it’s only natural that this ritual reminds one of a struggle.' [...]"
