Photography // Saturday, April 05, 2014
In his most recent series Kachalka: Muscle Beach, Ukranian photographer, Kirill Golovchenko documents a massive 6 square mile, open-air public fitness space in Kiev, Ukraine. As you can see in Golovchenko’s photographs, many of the bodybuilders wear no shoes when using the archaic-looking machinery that has rusted over the years and is unpadded.

The work of Peter Granser

Photography // Friday, April 04, 2014
Peter Granser’s ‘Sun City’ is an upbeat look at the latter part of our lives. Often growing old is looked at as a negative concept where one might spend most of their time sitting around too tired to do anything and dreaming of grandchildren. Granser breaks this stereotype in his book, which documents a retirement colony in the American Southwest. These photographs show lively and eccentric characters partaking in activities like shooting and swimming. He also photographs the landscapes of well-kept flamingo-laden lawns and prim hedges. The book is a celebration of aging and shows these whimsical elderly people enjoying their nostalgic tastes together. Granser has done several projects about growing old including a more melancholy book about Alzheimer’s disease.

His book Gangs Story (banned by French court) was the result of 20 years of work in which he documented the Hell’s Angels, Skinheads, postitutes and even serial killer Guy Georges,who in turn kidnapped Morvan for three days.
