tasj PORTRAIT Eriberto Oriol and Estevan Oriol 2012 – $10
This edition of PORTRAIT is a longer, more up to date, glossy version of the eight page black and white issue we published on the Oriols in 2011.
In the opening pages of the inaugural FLASH, you will find Snapshot, a portfolio of profiles on the project-packed schedules of twelve photographers for whom 2012 holds major museum retrospectives, award ceremonies, book releases, shows at galleries and festivals around the world and more.
Photographers aren’t only getting support from the institutions, though; as the reports on the springtime sales at Sotheby’s, Christie’s and Phillips in At The Auctions reveal, the collector’s market for photography of the 20th and 21st century is only continuing to grow, with thirteen world auction records set across the two sales at Phillips alone.
The focus in the succeeding section, Showtime is less mercenary; here, the emphasis is on the high level and wide variety of photography that has been presented in galleries and museums this year, one such example being cover artist Juergen Teller’s exhibition at Lehmann Maupin Gallery in February. The features on Mona Kuhn, Thomas Ruff and Francesca Woodman expand on this theme, exploring in detail the bodies of work these photographers recently mounted at Flowers, Haus der Kunst, SFMOMA and the Guggenheim, respectively.
The issue is rounded out by the first installment in the new Album series, the tasj Bookshelf, a peek into Estevan Oriol’s overflowing camera bag, an interview with Ben Shapiro, director of Gregory Crewdson: Brief Encounters, and some words by Jonathas de Andrade on the works he contributed to The Ungovernables: The 2012 New Museum Triennial.
