We can never fully know a person, a place, or a story, however, if I were an angel, then I could listen to every single person, I could get to know you – at long last – I could understand you all; understand everything. Perhaps though, it’s in the mystery of in-comprehension, and of not knowing, where the magnitude of life resides. That incom- prehension that renders both the world and humans unpredictable, illogical, and full of vital, and at times explosive, energy. Maybe we don’t need to know the true inten- tion and nature of a beautiful gesture when something is just beautiful and that’s it. In fact, often it would be better not to seek out answers or explanations because this is what life is: sometimes authentic, sometimes fake; sated or miserable, overf lowing or empty. Wenders’ angels knew this all too well, so well they decided to become human.
They wanted to touch life with their own hands, to savour every tiny detail of what, before, was just the product of a sight that was real but sterile, like their own vision in black and white. The first time that I arrived in Łódź, it felt like I was in East Berlin, and, like the angels, in almost four years of brief but intense travels, I have collected the traces of what touched me. I was seeking photographs that were words; light, sparse, evanescent, evocative. Snapshots that illustrated not only my Polish present but also the present – and in a certain sense the past – of a place that made me feel like an angel, a place that made me feel at home.

In the era of social networks, insatiable kings of our connected lives, encouraging self-disclosure and selfie culture, Vincent Ferrané's photographic series "IRL Corps " presents the individualized and embodied body in everyday reality ("In Real Life") where it takes on a political dimension by challenging society through the dissemination of its image on digital media. Rather than a grand narrative, the image producer engages in conversation with nine people with vibrant sensitivities who bare themselves, revealing their openness to the world as much as an initiation into being: between universality and specificity, Aimé, David, Hosanna, Manouchka, Moon, Niamh, Nicky, Violette, and Zoé have turned their bodies into screens and their digital networks into modes of writing and exploration, sometimes serving as a Safe Place, an Icon, or a Trojan Horse. Their utopian seclusion celebrates differences, intimacy, non-conformity, and dreams of large-scale inclusion in a relationship of immediacy. By reversing the roles of the perceiving subject and the perceived world, the experience of "Corps IRL" invites us to see through them, according to them. Through a questionnaire echoing their images the interpreters of " IRL Corps " reveal certain aspects of their personality, their tastes and personal preferences to describe themselves succinctly.

Max Miechowski’s Land Loss follows the artist’s deep interest in the British landscape, exploring themes of time, community and resilience. These absorbing portraits, landscapes and delicate details are captured with Miechowski’s characteristic sensitivity, presenting a quiet space of contemplation. In the work, natural cycles and geological erosion act as gentle and sometimes abrupt reminders of loss and impermanence. As Miechowski learns by observing this seaside community, “we too are as temporary as the cliffs”. At a time of social and ecological upheaval, Land Loss reconnects us to the environment, and creates an extended metaphor where great uncertainty, compassion and care is carried by the landscape. Recalling his experience of visiting, photographing and witnessing this changing community.

The images in this book, collected under the title Works for a Cosmic Feeling, create a map, and an ode at the same time. They map out the universe of the author, the constellations that guide him and inspire his wonderings, the pathways and crossroads where he gets lost and finds himself back again. Just like god and the devil being hidden in details, Barile’s images oscillate in a constant flux of conscience, a rigorous yet abstract system of reference that includes and connects, builds and constantly destroys. There are no certainties nor statements, rather associations, at times vertigo. Just like in a quantum system, the narratives included are drenched in probability and chance. Nature is what encompasses all things, whether dissected in its traces and remains or triumphant in its decadence and complexity.

“There is a secret bond between slowness and memory, between speed and forgetting. A man is walking down the street. At a certain moment, he tries to recall something, but the recollection escapes him. Automatically, he slows down. Meanwhile, a person who wants to forget a disagreeable incident he has just lived through starts unconsciously to speed up his pace, as if he were trying to distance himself from a thing still too close to him in time. In existential mathematics that experience takes the form of two basic equations: The degree of slowness is directly proportional to the intensity of memory; the degree of speed is directly proportional to the intensity of forgetting.”
Milan Kundera, Slowness
