Each Line One Breath in Gold & Black By John Franzen

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 10, 2015

Franzen had a creative inner world as a child, moving around Germany until settling in Belgium at six years old. There he spent time in nature and began to study art. After school he worked as a woodcutter and nature-pedagogue, and his life as an independent artist is mainly marked by an intimate, self-paced career.

The Caretaker by Amir H. Fallah

Juxtapoz // Friday, July 10, 2015
Amir H. Fallah makes portraits that have nothing to do with the way an individual looks. After choosing a subject—a friend, acquaintance, or, in the case of his Nerman exhibit, someone who was a complete stranger when he began, Fallah excavates the person’s life. He visits the home, taking in furniture and décor and combing through the possessions, mementos and other treasures that speak to the values and relationships that define the inner self. Given the billion-dollar industry that serves people’s concern with how they present their outer selves, it’s a subversive approach, made all the more so by Fallah’s practice of covering his subjects in fabric, drapery, or other materials, so that we don’t see their physical features at all.
