Berlin’s Galerie für Moderne Fotografie is hosting “Unknown Female Photographer” a mini-retrospective by German-born, Paris-based photographer Katja Rahlwes. The works are a mix of old and new, striking portraits and the uncannily alluring still lifes that are her signature. A return to basics after ten years working mainly in the fashion industry. Katja began her career as a stylist in the late 90s Parisian fashion scene, contributing to magazines like Purple and Self Service. But she wanted to do more than dress the models, and by 2005 was a photographer in her own right. A restlessness marks her career, evolving from Studio Berçot student to stylist to photographer. And now, to an independent artist questioning the ever-faster and more immediate fashion system. Check more pictures from the exhibition after the jump.

WONDERPLANT SERIES BY SARAH ILLENBERGER

Wonderplants is the new amazing print series by Sarah Illenberger. Created on a six-week trip to Portugal together with fellow creative and friend Lisa Cepeda, it was made using only the resources that were available, so just the plants , stickers and tape found in local stationery and DIY stores. “Over time I gathered more leaves from the Botanical Gardens in Porto and Lisbon and applied geometric shapes. They were inspired by Portuguese tiles and african fabrics,” Sarah says. The combination of these visual references forms a series that feels both graphic and tribal, have a look at the complete series after the jump!

LINA SCHEYNIUS SOLO SHOW AT TAKA ISHII GALLERY

From December 13th to January 31st, at Taka Ishii Gallery — Tokyo (Japan)

Christophe Guye Galerie announces Lina Scheynius’ upcoming solo exhibition “Exhibition 03″ at Taka Ishii Gallery in Tokyo from December 13 to January 31. This will be Scheynius’ first solo exhibition in Japan and it will include about 16 works. Born in Vänersborg in southeast Sweden in 1981 and currently based in London, Lina Scheynius became a photographer after a career in modeling. After working as a model – a photographic subject and target of idealistic and conceptual projection as well as alteration – Scheynius began shooting photographs out of a desire to reconstruct the relationship between “the looker” and “the looked at” and a continued interest in photographic expression, which candidly mediates that relation. Have a peek to some of the photos on display!

AMIRA FRITZ’S WILD NOTHING EXHIBITION

From September 18th to October 11th, at Galerie Für Moderne Fotografie — Berlin (Germany)

Galerie Für Moderne Fotografie presents “Wild Nothing” an exhibition by Amira Fritz. In this series people has no place, it’s almost as if civilization never penetrated this far. The forest appears mystical and forbidding, the water glitters icy, the undergrowth seems impenetrable. Maybe that’s why Fritz’s deep and dense images practice a peculiar attraction for the viewer. Amira Fritz still works analogously and in the darkroom, filters give their recordings colored veil, double exposures, they can look washed out. “Wild Nothing” is reminiscent of Henry David Thoreau, in his work “Walden, or Life in the woods.” It says: “Nature puts no question and answers none which we mortals ask. She has long ago taken her resolution”. Amira Fritz’s photos know of this plan.
