My work is featured in GUP Magazine #48 — MIXING IT UP!

Let’s not play this too safe. It’s easy to talk about photography like it’s just one thing, but that’s not really an accurate picture. Not anymore. There’s lens-less photography, there’s camera-less photography, there are photographs manipulated far beyond the ‘moment’ they were captured, there are artists who work with photographs without ever taking a single shot themselves. Art is meant to push, and within the field of photography, there’s a lot of heated pushing and shoving.

GUP#48, Mixing It Up, is filled with images and projects from artists that are pushing photography's definition, from lens-less photography to camera-less photography, to artists who work with found imagery. The issue also features an interview with Noémie Goudal by Nora Uitterlinden and a long-read article by Editor-at-Large Erik Vroons on interfering with photographs aesthetically to arrive at a new truth.

Photographers highlighted in the magazine include: Laurence Aëgerter, Alejandro Chaskielberg, Marcus DeSieno, David Fathi, Amy Friend, Kazuto Ishikawa, Sophie Kahn, Seba Kurtis, Louviere + Vanessa, Mark Page, Alison Rossiter, Ksenia Yurkova, among others.

You may have noticed the new website

I have been working on getting a new site up for quite a while. Finally, something has materialized. IT is a bit glitchy and not completely finished, but it is here. More additions and alterations to be made soon! 


10.Oceans and Silkworms
Curated by Marcie Bronson

Opening Reception

Inspired by a small found archive of personal photographs, documents, and objects, Amy Friend presents a new body of photo-based work that considers how identity comprises both fact and fiction. Composing images by overlaying fragments of the archive with anonymous secondhand photographs and her own original photographs, she infers narratives from the minimal details the remnants provide. Ambiguous and morphing, these composite images at once explore and confuse the history they reference, and Friend uses this to reflect how we understand and interpret the people around us. When anomalous threads appear and begin to unravel the fabric of stories we think we know, we call into question what is accepted as truth. So little can say so much, and even greater is the unexplored mystery of the spaces between what is known.
