Artist edition

In Novem­ber 2018, black­print edi­tion launched its col­lab­o­ra­tions with inter­na­tion­al con­tem­po­rary pho­tog­ra­phers and emerg­ing artists.

The “artist edi­tion” is ded­i­cat­ed to the con­tem­po­rary pho­tog­ra­phers and artists. In a col­lab­o­ra­tion we trans­form select­ed art pieces into lim­it­ed and col­lec­table editions.

Each exclu­sive art­work cho­sen by black­print edi­tion is devel­oped with the artist. As with all our black­print edi­tions we choose the paper very care­ful­ly for our artist edi­tions and we make and take care of the design of every detail of the artwork.

The artist edi­tion does not exceed the num­ber of 7 copies and 2 AP for over CHF 1000.- and 60 copies of art­work under CHF 500.–

Take Out! edition

We want­ed to offer an even more afford­able qual­i­ty lim­it­ed edi­tion, already framed and ready to hang.

The first serie, “dunn”, spe­cial­ly cre­at­ed by wonow for black­print is an orig­i­nal series of micropho­tographs print­ed on a beau­ti­ful awaga­mi bam­boo paper from Japan.

Each copy is framed in a pre­mi­um frame with anti-reflec­tive muse­um glass and passé-partout.

The for­mat of each edi­tion is 14.8 × 21 cm (5.8 × 8.3″) in a mag­net­ic wood­en frame of 30 × 40 cm (11.8 × 15.7″).

As all black­print edi­tions, each copy is num­bered and this edi­tion does not exceed 200 copies.

Olli Bery

About

Ini­tial­ly pho­to reporter, Olli Bery built a sin­gu­lar pho­to­graph­ic act that spans a peri­od of ten years (2012−2022). The pho­to­graph­ic oeu­vre thus cre­at­ed is dis­tin­guished by its nar­ra­tive inten­si­ty, the con­stan­cy of its research and the ele­gance of its timelessness.

Diego Brambilla

blackprint edition - Diego Brambilla

About

Diego Bram­bil­la is an Ital­ian artist, based between Lon­don and Zürich, who grad­u­at­ed from the Lon­don Col­lege of Com­mu­ni­ca­tion with an MA in pho­tog­ra­phy in 2015. Pre­vi­ous edu­ca­tion includes a BA in Soci­ol­o­gy and a diplo­ma in Film Direction.

Delib­er­ate­ly mix­ing real and imag­i­nary, he stages fic­tion­al sce­nar­ios and exper­i­men­tal­ly com­bines pho­tog­ra­phy with sculp­ture. Draw­ing upon con­tem­po­rary nar­ra­tives about nature, the human body or sci­ence, his work chal­lenges those con­cepts as cul­tur­al prod­ucts and inves­ti­gates their abil­i­ty to recon­fig­ure the mean­ing with­in a con­struct­ed imagination.

His work has received the Pho­toX award and it has been select­ed and short­list­ed for sev­er­al com­pe­ti­tions such as Athens Pho­to Fes­ti­val, Voies Off Arles and Pho­togrV­phy Grant and it has been exhib­it­ed many times in Lon­don and in Milan. His work has gained the atten­tion of the media and it has been fea­tured in many mag­a­zines, print­ed and online, such as Fish­eye Mag­a­zine, GUP, Wired (US and Japan), Dai­lybest. It has been pub­lished in the Paris Opera book­let and got fea­tured on Rai3 (nation­al Ital­ian television).

Alexander Bühler

Alexander Bühler - Portrait - blackprint edition

About

Alexan­der Büh­ler is a Swiss artist, with a paint­ing degree from Chelsea Col­lege of Fine Arts, Lon­don. After leav­ing col­lege he has been trav­el­ing exten­sive­ly in Asian, Europe and lat­er in Latin Amer­i­ca. The trav­els and adap­tion process­es involved, have con­tin­u­ous­ly chal­lenge his artis­tic prac­tice, to explore new tech­incs and forms to relize and pro­duce his ideas. Dur­ing the CCA-Kitakyushu res­i­den­cy in Japan, he cre­ate a unique video instal­la­tion called “A moment of truth” (2010), for the solo show “Arche­types and Line” in Lon­don at Stu­dio 1.1, one hun­dred small paint­ings where shown, hung onto 3 col­or fields paint­ed onto the exhi­bi­tion walls. Alexander’s work is very much a med­i­ta­tive process, an inter­nal enquiry which nev­er­the­less takes his encounter with the out­side world as its start­ing point. In try­ing to under­stand, bump­ing into the phys­i­cal world, as it were, he grad­u­al­ly becomes aware of cog­ni­tive process­es which then evolve with­in the mak­ing of the work itself. Cur­rent­ly he is devel­op­ing his solo show pre­sen­ta­tion “Bichos” at Lagos in Mex­i­co City, where is cur­rent­ly part of the stu­dio pro­gram. Along­side his new print­ing edi­tion for black­print, Alexan­der will also be present with his work “Tem­po­rary Vacan­cy” (2018) at the Kunst:Szene Zürich 2018 and will par­tic­i­pate with a/b Books, of which he is the founder at this years Vol­umes 2018 at the Kun­sthalle Zürich!

Klaus-Martin Gareis

blackprint edition Limited Artist Edition featuring Klaus-Martin Gareis

About

Klaus-Mar­tin Gareis is an auto­di­dac­tic pho­tog­ra­ph­er. In 2004 he start­ed exper­i­ment­ing with ana­logue equip­ment and devel­op­ment pro­ce­dures and over the years cre­at­ed his own work process includ­ing oil colour to cre­ate unique large scale works.
While the pho­tog­ra­phy itself always stands for the begin­ning of a com­plex process towards and fin­ished work, the main goal for each sujet is to find its own metaphor­i­cal lan­guage, empha­siz­ing each pho­tog­ra­phy uniquely.
Over sev­er­al years KM has explored the so called alter­na­tive devel­op­ment process­es for ana­logue pho­tog­ra­phy. Sev­er­al promis­ing process­es are hard­ly to man­age any longer these days like some of the Bro­moil Prints you find in the Objects sec­tion. The now set­tled pro­ce­dure is based on Lith and Poly­chrom Devel­op­ers used in a form to pro­duce rather erro­neous and chaot­i­cal­ly results instead of exact and accu­rate prints. Using in some cas­es old and long expired pho­to­graph­ic paper, the com­bi­na­tion by itself results already in a kind of unpre­dictable print.

Kurt Haefeli

blackprint edition - Kurt Haefeli

About

Gesteine, ver­wit­tert und von Bran­dung umspült, abge­lagert in einem schöpferischen Prozess der Natur, als Zeitzeu­gen der lan­gen Erdgeschichte. Von visuellen Rhyth­men und Kom­po- sitio­nen in Gesteins- und Eis­for­ma­tio­nen lässt sich Kurt Hae­fe­li inspirieren.
Steine, auskristallisierte Min­erale, haben auf uns Men­schen eine fast magis­che Wirkung. Bere­its als Kinder kön­nen wir uns der faszinieren­den Vielfalt von For­men und Far­ben kaum entziehen. Wir wollen sie sam­meln, auf­be­wahren und besitzen. Diese Lei­den­schaft pack­te auch mich als Fotografen. Sie lässt mich Gesteine, die manch­mal an japanis­che Zen-Gärten erin­nern, auf den für Island typ­is­chen Sanderebe­nen und an Küsten suchen, ent­deck­en, fokussieren, ins rechte Licht rück­en und mit der Kam­era ein­fan­gen. Manch­mal geschieht dies wie in einem Fluss der Begeis­terung. Ich ver­liere mich beim Fotografieren der Gesteine, tauche ein in eine unmit­tel­bare Erfahrung. Es ist wie ein Ver­schmelzen mit der umgeben­den Natur. Auss­chnitte, Ver­schlusszeit­en und Blenden wäh­le ich dann wie automa­tisch und vergesse dabei die reale Zeit. Natür­lich gelingt diese Art der Fotografie nicht ohne Vor­bere­itung und Pla­nung. Gezeit­en, Bran­dung und Licht­stim­mungen verän­dern sich in ver­schiede­nen Rhyth­men, müssen beobachtet und analysiert wer­den. Oft braucht es viel Geduld, langes Warten und dann in kurzen Zeit­fen­stern schnelles Handeln.

Thom Kubli

Thom Kubli blackprint edition

About

Thom Kubli (CH) works as an artist and com­pos­er in Berlin. His works address the human con­di­tion in the light of dig­i­tal change — between myth and dig­i­ti­za­tion, spir­i­tu­al­i­ty, and arti­fi­cial intelligence.

His draw­ings are sim­i­lar to tech­ni­cal sketch­es but imply a spon­ta­neous, per­for­ma­tive ele­ment. The sub­jects are inspired by the vibrant ties between art, tech­no­log­i­cal devel­op­ments, and the pecu­liar­i­ties of human inter­ac­tion. Thus he cre­ates a graph­ic space of spec­u­la­tion about struc­ture, dynam­ics, and emotion.

Kubli’s sculp­tures and instal­la­tions have been shown inter­na­tion­al­ly, e.g., at the New Muse­um of Con­tem­po­rary Art, New York City, at Ars Elec­tron­i­ca, Linz, at Eye­beam, New York City, at the File Fes­ti­val, São Paulo, or Lab­o­ra­to­rio Arte Alame­da, Mex­i­co City. His artis­tic research includes col­lab­o­ra­tions with the MIT Media Lab, Boston, the Rens­se­laer Poly­tech­nic Insti­tute, Troy / New York, or the ZHAW Zurich.

Alexander Sporre

Alexander Sporre portrait blackprint edition

About

The work of Alexan­der Sporre address­es the philo­soph­i­cal — and often poet­ic — dimen­sions of suc­cess and fail­ure as well as the illu­sion of a know­able and ratio­nal self.

After suf­fer­ing an unex­pect­ed case of burnout a few years ago, he was sud­den­ly struck with an inten­si­fied per­cep­tion of per­son­al fail­ure. Dur­ing his slow jour­ney towards recov­ery, he real­ized that per­haps these feel­ings of defeat were instru­men­tal in reveal­ing the essen­tial­ly illu­so­ry nature of the self.

Ever since his recov­ery he has been doc­u­ment­ing his direct sur­round­ings in an effort to see beyond the veil of our per­ceived real­i­ty. In his work this is expressed in imagery of an imper­fect and lyri­cal nature. Sporre explores the bound­aries of the medi­um through exper­i­men­ta­tion with (un)conventional devel­op­ment process­es. Com­bin­ing both dig­i­tal and ana­log tech­niques, he seeks to be con­tin­u­ous­ly surpised by the beau­ty of imper­fec­tion. Sporre trav­elled many times to Japan, where he recent­ly had his first solo exhi­bi­tion. His sec­ond one is expect­ed in Jan­u­ary 2019.
Alexan­der Sporre grad­u­at­ed from the Pho­to Acad­e­my, Ams­ter­dam in 2017.
