Portraits that catch the eye, and also create a lasting impression: with works from four series now on display at the Ernst Leitz Museum (26 June 2024 – 22 September 2024), it is clear how brilliantly Bryan Adams masters photographic communication with his subjects, as well as with the general public. Born in Canada in 1959 and currently living in London, the artist has, since the nineties, pursued a rapid and very self-confident career as a photographer, in parallel to his successes as a singer, songwriter and producer. His interest in photography, which he developed as a teenager and initial ..read more

Disconnected from space, time and any specific location, the photographer captures moments of everyday life that are often overlooked – a pause to take a breath, a lull between activities, or a shift from one emotional state to another. Her project reveals the universal presence of the ephemeral in our lives. The poetic and associative images invite the viewer to ponder on these daily impulses that define the rhythm of our existence. The photographer spoke with us about the idea behind the series, which she produced in Arles, southern France, in 2021. How do you find your topics and narratives ..read more

After reading a UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report, which warns that if global warming rises by 2.5 degrees Celsius, the Camargue will sink into the Mediterranean, the French photographer decided to portray the landscape and its inhabitants. He considers his project both photographic and literary: he juxtaposes his documentary images with ballad-like texts, where he allows space for his mental associations. He spoke with us about his point of view, about complementing his photography with writing, about the common clichés related to the Camargue, and about the people he ..read more

In the intense black and white photographs, he embarks on a visual journey into the past, in search of meaningful places. He spoke with us about his role models, his idea ..read more

From the earth, to the rivers, and to the ground water: in the areas in France where uranium was once mined, it will take thousands of years for the natural environment to overcome the past. With a Geiger counter in her hand, Letizia Le Fur moved through radioactively-contaminated parts of the country. Her pictures reveal the dangerous beauty of a nature where the damage perpetrated can often only be recognised by numbers. What is the state of nature today and what does nature mean to you? Today, nature is in a precarious state, bearing the burden of past industrial efforts such as uranium min ..read more

In 2022 and 2023, the Italian photojournalist Ciro Battiloro spent a number of weeks in rugged Normandy. He wanted to document the daily lives of fishermen there – a guild that fights for survival in general every day. In addition to the impressive imagery he returned with from his visits, he acquired an amazing insight: spirituality and handicraft are knotted together like a fishing net. He spoke with us about intimacy whilst taking pictures, rhythmic rituals, a traditional handicraft, and unfavourable weather conditions. Your photography seems to place you in the classical humanistic traditi ..read more

His desire is to freeze and sublimate the present moment in an authentic manner: Aurélien Longo’s pictures speak of a city where the pace is constantly changing throughout the day. As he explores Tokyo, he captures the ever-changing pulse of urban life there. What makes Tokyo so special for you as a photographer, and what fascinates you about street photography? Compared to the various cities I visited across Europe and the United States, visiting Tokyo was certainly the most culturally immersive experience I’ve had to date. As a westerner, being exposed to Japanese culture and lacking the cod ..read more

Todd Hido has been developing his series for over 25 years – series which he prefers to present in book format and at exhibitions. Time and again they capture stories that seem both familiar and unknown, both appealing and unsettling. His style has become unmistakeable: mysterious suburban scenarios; roads and landscapes devoid of people; photographs taken primarily in gloomy weather. On occasion, rare interiors or portraits slip into the flow of images. The photographer captured his motifs predominantly in the USA, not far from where he lives; but his new photo book also took him from the Haw ..read more

Without water, there is no life. The statement is as straightforward as the relationship between this vital element and people is complex. Renowned photojournalist Ian Berry has been dealing intensely with the subject of water for the past decades. “Water tells a tale as it goes” is a Japanese saying, which Kathie Webber – journalist and Berry’s wife – uses as the opening words for her accompanying text, adopting this Zen-like wisdom to point out the subtleties of the nature of water. The essential hallmarks of the photographer’s visual language are his intense emotionality and his direct test ..read more
