Shop • Gianluca Galtrucco 'For Your Consideration – Los Angeles as a cinematic mirrage - a Hatje Cantz illustrated book full of sit-com, glamour & kitsch, between reality and artifice

16.08.2017 • Like no other city in the world, Los Angeles encourages the observer to play with illusions. At every street corner one wonders if they are still in ordinary life, have stepped onto a movie set, or have entered a heat-induced mirage. Italian photographer Gianluca Galtrucco, resident of the City of Angels for many years, discovers comedic and dramatic images throughout L.A. and its region that blur the boundary between reality and artifice.

It is not clear in which of his pictures Galtrucco has created dream tableaux and in which he has simply carried existing situations to extremes. Sometimes the titles provide the key; at other times, they only enhance the disorientation. Many of the words and names allude to the world of cinema, underscoring how thoroughly Los Angeles has been shaped by its best known industry – and how many movies shape our view of the city in turn. As much showman as lensman, Galtrucco urges us to suspend disbelief and to trust his imagery. That way, everything can fall into place. Hatje Cantz presents on GoSee a preview between hollywood glamour and...

Shop • GoSee loves LGBT: San Francisco - The Daniel Nicoletta Photographs presents you true heroes who anaged to change the world for us all – both in drag and not

01.08.2017 • In 1975, the then 20-year-old Nicoletta worked in Milk’s famous camera store in the Castro district, one of the first gay districts in the US at all. Nicoletta's photographs of equally convincing and charismatic human rights activist, Harvey Milk, who became one of the world's first officials to openly express his homosexuality, are probably among his most famous photographs.

Milk dedicated his work to a world with equal rights and that at a time when the growing visibility of the LGBT movement was up against widespread hostility and systematic discrimination. Milk himself was murdered in his office in the City Hall in 1978, only one year after being elected. Despite the tragic death of Harvey Milk and the impending tragedy of the AIDS epidemic, Nicoletta remained faithful to his commitment as an unrelenting documenter of the LGBT movement. The illustrated book documents the chaos on the streets of San Francisco in this pioneer era – which ultimately led to the right to marriage for everyone almost all over Europe, another important step towards the final equality of all...

Shop • GoSee MUST HAVE : Sanne De Wilde 'The Island of the Colorblind' - the impressive visualization of the world of the color blind, appearing as an illustrated book at Kehrer Publishing

12.07.2017 • What our eyes see clearly is blurred before their eyes until it becomes a diffuse mass. Colors do not exist in their perception, and when others enjoy the sun in the cloudless sky, they retreat to their huts. Normal daylight even blinds the inhabitants of Pingelap so much that they can hardly see anything else. Only the light conditions at night are adequate for those with the sight disorder so that they can go about their lives also outside.

In the late 18th century a catastrophic typhoon swept over Pingelap, a tiny atoll in the Pacific Ocean. One of the survivors, the king, carried the rare achromatopsia-gen that causes complete colorblindness. The king went on to have many children and as time passed by, the hereditary condition affected the isolated community and the islanders started seeing the world in black and white. This phenomenon was first described by neurologist and writer Oliver Sacks.

Portraying the islanders (who by their fellow Micronesians are referred to as blind) and their island resulted in a conceptual selection of images that mask or emphasize the...

Shop • Sublimity and exploitation: on the relationship between humankind and nature. The works by Korean photographer Han Sungpil on GoSee, published in a book at Hatje Cantz

12.07.2017 • In his works of art, Korean photographer Han Sungpil confronts the themes of environment, energy production, and humankind’s impact on nature. The three series in this book of photographs are distinguished by their surprising perspective, which goes beyond the visual vocabulary normally found in environmental documentations. Whether it’s a painterly French landscape featuring nuclear power plants, presented as a scene of idyllic perfection, or a search for the relics of whale hunting and coal mining in the Arctic and Antarctic, Sungpil’s photographs tell, artfully and critically, of nature’s sublimity and humankind’s overexploitation of it. Photographs of abandoned trawlers, whaling stations, and industrial ruins set in front of monumental, ice-covered landscapes shift the focus to the exploitation of ecological resources, leaving the viewer speechless. Sungpil was awarded the Ilwoo Foundation’s prize for his moving works of art.
