The series “Easton Nights” began in late 2015 as an exercise in night photography, inspired mostly by the poetic shots of George Tice.

The exercise soon evolved into an obsession, not just with the night or night photography, but with stages and places which we all create and where we act every day. The night spotlights, isolates and minimalizes what we see; and stripped of its makers, our fabrications awake with an animism, which  hypnotizes, fascinates and engages. It does not reveal the macabre often associated with the night, but a beauty and elegance of our man made environment.  Sweaty Toyotas take precedent over Cadillacs; signs and poles lean in soft repose, and a plastic rubbish can takes on sculptural importance that would make R Mutt proud.  Its’ geometry, complexity, and layers built on layers, are all intended to contain, protect and organize, while the street lighting spotlights our doors which seem as portals to other worlds. The scattered words act like endless Edward Ruscha paintings, sometimes humorous, sometimes serious, but always telling. It is a world painted with its own color wheel, visually rich and virtually endless; this is our creation.

Easton Nights is a story which grew from the unique and uncommon valley in which the city lies; and is told with theimages of unpeopled landscapes taken at night. Here, in the small hours, the world we see as mundane, cascades into dream.  It is a story about Easton, a story about the Lehigh Valley, a story about Pennsylvania, and a story about small town America. Through hundred of hours, wandering the silent streets, Ydeen has interacted with our unseen worlds which present themselves, through his camera, as places which are at the same time surreal, romantic and magical, but also mere captures. The beauty is real, and a romantic mirror of ourselves.  It is our story.

Turin; You Do Not See by Riccardo Surace

Turin; You Do Not See by Riccardo Surace

The project titled What You Do Not See, Unordinary tells the story of the City of Turin, my city, seen through the eyes of passersby. All photographs have been captured with a long exposure technique; in other words, I mixed then history of the city with my own history, my life experience. In fact, after five years spent fighting a disease, my artistic purpose is primarily that of representing the all too familiar feeling when, as a young man wandering through the city, one feels invisible, and yet still he is thoroughly involved in its daily frenzy.

Fragments by Anne-Marie Giroux.

Fragments is a project within a project. Since 2020, I have been working on an installation project entitled Drifts Drifting Phase II which will be presented at Espace Produit Rien in Montréal in April 2023. The installation proposes a questioning of human and artistic drift, theme that I have been exploring since 2014. Adopting a critical and mocking approach on the relevance of the very essence of the art object, I also question the relevance of being an artist, and particularly, the relevance of being a woman artist.

Til All Is Correct by Louise Fago-Ruskin

I like to think of my Great Uncle Moszek hovering  somewhere between floors 8 and 12 of Nalewki Street  9 in the Warsaw ghetto. It is a safe place, this imagined placement of his body. Down below the streets of the ghetto are not safe. A German soldier has been killed and revenge is about to be sought. Boots are  heard on the ground, moving ever closer to number 9.

Nudes for the women I’ve met by Dragos Dumitrescu
