Jason Fulford & Tamara Shopsin, the exhibition @ Micamera | Milano | Lombardia | Italia
Jason Fulford and Tamara Shopsin The Beach Ball and the Crab exhibition opening on Friday, September 15 at 7pm through October 14, 2017 Love it regardless of logic (…) for only then will I grasp its meaning. ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov This exhibition, the result of a friendship between Micamera and the artists Jason Fulford and Tamara Shopsin, is also an invitation to dance harmonically through life, with the tension of crab claws on an inflatable ball … The Beach Ball and the Crab is the family crest of Jason and Tamara. This exhibition exists through a series of relationships: between husband and wife; between (his) photography and (her) drawings—in both cases spanning over a long period and sometimes reaching back to before they even knew each other and relevant in their courtship; and between eternal love and constant change, as it is in a relationship and as it will be reflected in the exhibition. After all, it is about finding a balance between logic and emotion: not too much on the logic side, not too much on the sentimental side, playing with form and using humor, Fulford’s photographs being more open-ended, metaphors, and Shopsin’s typically witty illustrations being more like puzzles that give pleasure when solved. Following Ed and Deanna Templeton, this is the second time we work with a married couple on discovering common threads and the secret of long lasting love relationships. And after Todd Hido and Marina Luz, this is the second time Micamera shows a selection of works based on photography and drawings. A special limited edition of wine is also being produced for the show, with a custom label designed by Jason and Tamara. Jason Fulford and Tamara Shospin will teach a workshop over the weekend (Sept 16+17), all info here JASON FULFORD (1973) is a photographer, co-founder of J&L Books, and a Guggenheim Fellow. He is a frequent lecturer at universities, and has led workshops across the United States, in Japan, Italy, Poland, The Netherlands, Germany and Spain. His monographs include Sunbird (2000), Crushed (2003), Raising Frogs for $$$ (2006), The Mushroom Collector (2010), Hotel Oracle (2013), and Contains: 3 Books (2016). He is co-author with Tamara Shopsin of the photobook for children, This Equals That (2014), and co-editor with Gregory Halpern of The Photographer’s Playbook (2014). Fulford’s photographs have been described as open metaphors. As an editor and an author, a focus of his work has been on the subject of how meaning is generated through association. Jason Fulford and Micamera have known each other for some time now. We have been Hotel Oracle’s cellar in 2014, hosted a reading related to Contains: 3 Books in 2016, and High Anxiety performance at the HEY NOW space in Reggio Emilia in 2017. See Jason Fulford’s books at the bookshop TAMARA SHOPSIN  (1979) s a graphic designer and illustrator whose work is regularly featured in The New York Times and The New Yorker. She is the author of two memoirs: Mumbai New York Scranton and Arbitrary Stupid Goal. She is also designer of the 5 Year Diary, co-author with Jason Fulford of the photobook for children, This Equals That and a cook at her family’s restaurant in New York City.

MICHAEL KENNA - ABRUZZO
Michael Kenna| Abruzzo  exhibition opening and booksigning Wednesday, October 18 at 7pm prints on view through November 4th Abruzzo, located in southern Italy, is known as the ‘green region of Europe’ because of the system of parks and nature reserves covering more than one-third of its territory. In Abruzzo, Michael Kenna found a cultural identity that elsewhere, for the most part, has been lost to globalization and instant communication. On four separate trips between 2015-2016, Kenna photographed medieval ruins, ancient villages, mountains and seascapes, and a countryside rich in traditional cultivation. The resulting monograph, ABRUZZO, published by Nazraeli Press, coincides with a major museum exhibition curated by Vincenzo de Pompeis that opened in July, 2017 in Loreto Aprutino, Italy. The exhibition will run until October 31st. (link to the exhibition). Il libro Michael Kenna | Abruzzo Hardcover, 32 x 30 cm 80 pages, 65 photographs b/w English 78,00€ buy your signed copy here After Retrospective Two at the Scavi Scaligeri Museum in Verona in 2005 (an exhibition curated by Mauro Fiorese, that started with a conversation at the bookstore in Milan) Michael Kenna has exhibited the series Monique’s Kindergarten at Micamera in 2008, with a dedicated installation realized in collaboration with Marta Motterlini and Antonella Orlando, and Ilaria Turba’s tubeLAIR video.

As one of 6 children born to a working class Catholic family, he initially aspired to enter the priesthood but his passion for the arts led him to The Banbury School of Art where he studied painting and then photography. Later he attended The London College of Printing and began working as a photographer and artist. He experienced New York in 1976 and was astounded by the number of art galleries which showcased paintings and photography. He moved to San Francisco, California in the late seventies and now lives in Seattle, Washington with his family. He continues to photograph around the world. Michael Kenna’s prints have been shown in numerous exhibitions internationally, and are in permanent collections such as the Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris; The Museum of Decorative Arts, Prague; The National Gallery of Art, Washington DC; and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.

Micamera Photography Masterclass
Micamera Photography Masterclass Seeing is Believing with Joakim Eskildsen, Hannes Wanderer, Giulia Zorzi Micamera organizes a long term photo learning class for a limited number of students. We have been organizing and hosting workshops for many years now. They have been the starting point for a number of works we have then seen published and exhibited, and for many collaborations. We always intended Micamera as a breeding ground for visual culture, a place where you can find books for your inspiration, meet other authors and people who share your interest in photography and art. Now, while keping the ‘classic’ workshop structure, we felt the need to organize a long-term class, that would meet on a regular basis, allowing the students to work on their projects in between. It will consist of 5 weekends over a period of 8 months + 5 individual, dedicated meetings, to be organized according to the students’ needs (in Milan or via Skype). From the definition of each participant’s visual language and photographic approach, to the realization and editing of the work, from postproduction to sequencing in the book, from making the book dummy to the possibility of transforming it into a published and distributed book, the workshop at Micamera will cover all the different aspects involved in the making of a personal project. The workshop will be led by a photographer: Joakim Eskildsen – a publisher: Hannes Wanderer (Peperoni Books) and a tutor: Giulia Zorzi (Micamera), to accompany the students all the way to the realization of a personal project. CALENDAR: 25-26 March with Joakim Eskildsen 29-30 April with Joakim Eskildsen 3-4 June with Joakim Eskildsen 23-24 September with Joakim Eskildsen 28-29 October with Hannes Wanderer (Peperoni Books) + 5 individual meetings with Giulia Zorzi, to set according to your needs where: Milano, Micamera / via Medardo Rosso, 19 language: English how many students: maximum 13 tuition: 2000€ info: [email protected] or [email protected] Giulia Zorzi: +39 02 4548 1569 (Micamera) or +39 335 6817 917 (mobile) TEACHERS JOAKIM ESKILDSEN – PHOTOGRAPHER ——–Joakim Eskildsen (portrait) and an image taken in Val Trebbia in 2012   Joakim Eskildsen will teach the first 4 weekends. Eskildsen has already taught at Micamera: in 2012 he led the first edition of our summer camps along the river Trebbia. It requires discipline to stay optimistic. I try to collect photographs of a world that I can believe in, that gives me hope and moments of magic. – Joakim Eskildsen ——–Joakim Eskildsen, two images from American Realities I shoot very few images – surely much less than any person around –  though I am constantly interested in the possibilities. Slow is good for me. When I will be gone, I wish I could have left behind something testifying all what I thought was wonderful. So I concentrate on things giving me strenght. We are here, and the world is an amazing beautiful place. If we keep looking at the wonderful things in this world maybe we will save it. Love must be romantic and passionate. Without feeling, I do not wanna live, I do not wanna look at things. (from an interview to GEO magazine) ——–Joakim Eskildsen, two images from The Roma Journeys   Joakim Eskildsen Joakim Eskildsen (born 1971 in Copenhagen) studied the art of producing photographic books with Jyrki Parantainen and Pentti Sammallahti at Helsinki’s Art and Design University and then went on to create various successful projects, achieving fame in 2007 with his book The Roma Journeys”, an account of his six-year journey inside the world and culture of the Roma people. The book is the result of an extensive project realized together with writer Cia Rinne and features an introduction by Gũnter Grass and a music CD. A photographic work evoking the tradition of great photojournalism, which stands out thanks to the strong characterization of both its aims and contents. Joakim Eskildsen has published 9 books, and 3 more are in the process: future publications: Home Works – (due in 2019) Nordic Signs –  new and revised edition of the first book, published in 1995  (due in 2018) Cuba – (due in 2017) published books: American Realities, book, texts by Natasha del Toro and Barbara Kiviat, Steidl Publishers, Göttingen 2016

A world I can believe in is a retrospective that presented the author’s work as a process, from the contact sheets to the work copies, exhibition prints and sketch books of seven book projects – the exhibition was hosted at the National Museum pf Photography in Copenhagen, Denmark (May 2016 – January 2016), at the FO.KU.S-Foto Kunst Stadtforum in Innsbruck, Austria (March-May 2016) and at Strandverket, Marstrand, Sweden (March-May 2016).   HANNES WANDERER – EDITORE Peperoni Books (Giulia Zorzi and Hannes Wanderer in 2015, in Milan) Hannes Wanderer is the founder and director of Peperoni Books.
