Certainly Tunbjörk, the acclaimed Swedish photographer – winner of the 2003 Grand Prix Terre D’Images at the Festival de Biarritz, author of seven collections of published photos – has done something no one else ever thought to do: travel the globe, slip into the offices of stockbrokers and insurance agents, and take photos of empty office cubicles. “In the course of these assignments, I photographed a lot of empty interiors: welfare offices just after family therapy, empty reception rooms,” said Tunbjörk. Getting permission to shoot inside corporate headquarters did indeed take some convincing. Lawyer’s Office, New York, 1997 In each he found the same sterile walls, dust-free desks and well-vacuumed cubicles. “Other photographers, they have to go to esoteric locales to come back with interesting pictures.

Old Work — ALYSSA MINAHAN lesbian a la mode. Happy birthday to my most favorite girl! She’s my complete opposite and I’d be completely lost without her. Favorite, I love you beyond words. Someday, you will find someone, who won’t sigh at words like commitment, and whose jaw won’t clench, when you ask them to stay. Someday, you will spit out the word ‘love’ so often, that it will follow water down the drain and into the earth, and you’ll see your work shining on the pavement. Someday, you will be able to make your rent, and still have a few bucks left over to waste on this month’s boyfriend; waste it on yourself. Someday, you will believe in something so deeply, that it alone will be enough to make your feet touch the hardwood floor every morning. Someday, you’ll laugh at all the moments, which at the time, made you feel as if there was nothing to live for, the moments where tomorrow’s chances of occurring, seemed slim to none. Someday, the thoughts that lied in between your hair and the pillow sheets will finally reach your reality.

radar FOTOGRAFIA En el extenso marco que ofrece el 25º Festival de la Luz se inaugura este martes Asylum of the birds, de Roger Ballen. A poco de llegar a Buenos Aires para presentar su última serie, basada en el cielo y los pájaros, la tierra y un grupo de refugiados en un psiquiátrico, Radar recorre su trayectoria y dialoga con este fotógrafo universal radicado en Sudáfrica, que sostiene que su obra no busca capturar la realidad sino transformarla. Desde que comenzó a hacer fotos, en su adolescencia, Roger Ballen se pregunta qué es el arte, qué es ser fotógrafo, qué es ser humano. Sin definirse más que como alguien viviendo una experiencia humana, dedicó años a formarse y a desarrollar carrera como geólogo. Cierta popularidad de Ballen surgió de su alianza creativa con los músicos sudafricanos de Die Antwoord. El video de “I fink u freeky” posicionó mundialmente tanto a la banda como al director gracias a la combinación exacta de sus imaginarios. Blinded. 2005 Nació en Nueva York, en 1950.
