Knapp, Gottfried
Albrecht Ade's 'photages', created with special light techniques, have nothing in common with the 'photocollages' or 'photomontages' of the 20th century. When artists as different as El Lissitzky, John Heartfield, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Raoul Hausmann or Hannah Hoch constructed futuristically bold, surreal or satirical images from photographic materials as a response to quotations from reality cut out and then stuck into Cubist 'papiers colles' by Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso, they worked mainly with someone else's material, with trouvailles. In contrast, Ade uses only his own material for his combination images, and his method for mounting images, for 'editing them into each other', does not need of scissors and paste either. He cultivates the usually involuntary effect of double exposure, a hazard from the days of analogue photography. He controls the chances of pictorial superimposition and confusion, artfully and purposefully arranging his own, deliberately positioned images among and on top of each other, using a technically elaborate matching and omission process. Ade, as well as teaching at the Stuttgart Akademie der Bildenden Kunste, has intensively promoted cinematic animation techniques in his years as director of the Stuttgart Festival of Animated Film, and since 1990, as founder-director of the Filmakademie in Ludwigsburg, has allowed animated film and camera arts to develop in the greatest possible breadth, in fact has helped to win the Ludwigsburg model the highest artistic respect in the film world. This all suggests how inventively and ingeniously his creative output mingles artistically creative and elaborately technical ideas and fascinations. Photography as a creative method for fine art - something the pioneers of photography dreamed of in the 19th century - becomes reality in Albrecht Ade's 'photages'. The text is in English and German. 97pp.

Baird,David M.
Autumn leaves dry in the sun, curling to make endless abstract patterns of curved surfaces and shadows. Or are they leaves? A closer look with Dr David M Baird reveals not leaves but layers of mud, which have shrunk into leaf-like shapes as they dried. Baird's amazing photographs show that intriguing patterns and textures are all around us. In "Beauty in the Rocks" the esteemed geologist, writer and poet takes readers on a photographic journey around the globe, finding beauty and form in settings as exotic as the Galapagos and as close to home as Yoho National Park. His intense, artistic images and accompanying text give mood and meaning to the changing earth and encourage readers to observe carefully the world around them, recognise what they see and understand how it came to be. From the hexagonal 'organ pipe' patterns in Northern Ireland's Giant's Causeway to the 'hoodoos' in Yoho National Park to the wrinkled surface skin of cooled liquid lava on James Island in the Galapagos, the wonders captured in this book will engage and enlighten anyone with an interest in the natural world. 144pp.
