Goodnight Godbless, A Celebration Of Life

“Good Night God Bless, a phrase often heard in hushed tones. It is these four words, that resonate memories of my beloved Grandfather. Many years after his death his words came to me when I was sleeping, this moment, joint with the birth of the first male in our family in four generations are what inspired me to begin this body of work.”

Tom Roche’s Black Blood

There will always be subjectivity when thinking about the past. Whom upset whom, the uncle we don’t talk about, the rose tint of nostalgia always making an appearance. We cannot understand our past unless we understand embracing the unknown and speculative thinking. In what way does thinking about the past change how you see the present. How do certain stories alter the remembrance of the past?

Stefania Orfanidou’s Pendulum

“Pendulum is the approach of a return journey to the city of L’Aquila in central Italy. My relationship with this place started 12 years before I was born, when my parents met each other accidentally there. I grew up listening to their narrations about this city, I visited it with them as a child, and I moulded their story in my mind.

Sarko Mutafyan’s Epicenters

“I became quite dissociated from my surroundings, even when I used to call Bulgaria my home. As I was growing up I remember looking at other people and thinking how they had both nuclear and extended families, more close knit communities and much better understanding of the culture and society in which they belonged to. And that was always something that seemed to be missing for me.”

India. Far-flung and famous for its food, colourful festivals and fast-growing population, the Asian Subcontinent has unsurprisingly become a popular destination for holidaymakers, entrepreneurs and big-businesses alike.

Robert Rutöd’s Fairy Tales

Born in 1959 in Vienna, Austria. Robert Rutöd has pursued a career in what most people dream of as a creative. An early pursuer of painting eventually led to working on short films, where he wrote and directed various films over nearly a 20 year span. With an internal passion for photography, Robert had been working on different projects throughout his whole career. In 2004, he returned to photography full time and began working on both short and long term projects. We got to chat to Robert around his career and his latest long-term project, Fairy Tales.

‘Giant above The Cherries’ With Petar Petrov

‘Giants above The Cherries’ is a metaphorical farewell to the town of Kyustendil, Bulgaria – Petar Petrov’s hometown and where he spent the first 19 years of his life. The series touches upon Petrov’s connection with the places and people, the scenery, and the pervading sense of abandonment. Woven into the work are narratives that explore specific issues associated with the place itself; the infrastructure, the youth, resources, culture, ethnic discrimination, and the transition from a socialist to a capitalist governing. We got to chat to Petar about his project and the book that he made to go alongside it.
