Schermafbeelding 2021-08-14 om 11.48.14

The Australian exhibition from 2016 was the fundament of the exhibition held at the Kunsthal to celebrate 25 years of fashion by Viktor & Rolf. Even the layout from this exhibition publication was used, but…….extended!

Beautiful and spectacular additions by the worlds best photographers and designers. Contributions by Anton Corbijn,, Cindy Sherman, Herb Ritts, Inez & Vinoodh, showing pieces worn by Madonna, Tilda Swinton and many others. I have seen many books on Fashion , but this is without a doubt one of the most spectecular ones and now available at www.ftn-books.com

Tracey Moffatt (1960)….. from Australia!

Schermafbeelding 2017-11-06 om 14.43.52

There are not many Australian artist ( born in Brisbane) who have become known for their works outside  Australia, but Tracey Moffatt is certainly one of them and build a reputation in the nineties as one of the most prommissing photographers. If you ask me to describe her works i would say it is a cross between Cindy Sherman and Erwin Olaf , possibly influenced by both but also original and a very gifted photographer/ video artist. I will show you some examples so you see what i mean.( left is Moffatt)

Still…. i like her works and therefore i have collected some books at www.ftn-books.com which are for sale.

Here is an impression of the presentation she gave at the Venice Biennale 2017

Rhythm by Peter Pontiac and Ray Ahn

rhythm

Because i have a lifetime admiration for Peter Pontiac i always have carried a large inventory on the artist, but what i neglected to buy for my collection is the “Rhythm” book by Peter Pontiac which has a great part of his comics in one publication. Because of an order by an Australian customer i found one with a colleague and i must say i am very impressed with this publication. It shows in over 400 pages exactly what makes his work stand out from others from his generation. Bold, controversial and in many cases it shows the raw world the main character lives in. Beside the stories this book is beautifully published and does grace to the stories by Pontiac. I told my customer that i had found the book for his collection and beside the fact that he was delighted he pointed out an Australian publication on Ray Ahn / THE ART OF RAY AHN which is still available in a limited edition of only 200 copies at www.starmanbooks.com  for Australian Dollar 375,–
