Leftover / Removals
Hardcover ISBN: 3868285229
In her series Removals, Finnish photographer Maija Tammi looks at the most common diseases by showing their raw evidence just a few minutes after operations. A removed gallstone, a goiter in a kidney bowl, looking like rare gems. "People find them really visually pleasing when they don't know what's in the photo," Tammi says, "They sometimes change their mind when they find out." In Leftover, "portraits" of used radiation therapy masks, collected from hospitals, deal with the fear of sickness; both defined and undefined. The intriguingly designed double book Leftover / Removals combines both series into a parallel story.

Tim Parchikov has developed a conceptual approach out of his travel experiences, capturing the world with an uneasy and curious eye, rendering it at the same time hyper-real and yet pictorial. TheSuspense project is the visual manifesto of the new "lost" generation of young people who, at the turn of the century, acquired complete freedom of information and movement as well as the illusion of all-pervasive communication, yet forfeited an integrated system of value judgement and were unexpectedly confronted by complete isolation. Their lives turned into a lonely journey in search of lost self-identification. Any halting point and encounter with reality during this journey became a form of suspense.
