Recently, I’ve curated a number of image series by photographers from ‘Flickr’ on my blog ‘Aesthetic Investigations’. Subsequently, I thought it would be interesting to document these works in a book. Therefore, i’ve arranged a collection of ’39’ abstract and minimal photographic series by these ’32’ artists. A selection of pages from the book can be viewed below, a full book preview can be seen: HERE


Thank you to everyone who contributed their images to this project.

brancolina :: URBAN STORIES photo book

Urban environment is a genuine hub of various activities and cultural expressions, ‘cityscapes’ conjure up multifarious visual associations, memories, and experiences that together signal the city’s distinctiveness. For this series I photographed urban scenes with authentic details that triggered my thoughts and aesthetic feelings by geometric juxtaposition of urban elements and
architectural semiotics .

The city is a symbol, and there is symbolization of the city, but it is in the image itself, apprehended through and by discourse, that what the city represents for man is revealed and expressed. Raymond Ledrut (‘The Images of the City’)

azurebumble :: hypo-x-series : a digital photography curation

Almost 3 Years on photography book “Hypo-x-Series”‘ has now been released in ‘Ebook ‘format. For those who possess an iPad or iPhone a version is now available for £1.49 (non profit).


“This book is the result of an online collaboration between 111 international artists and photographers, where by simply utilising the infrastructure of the photo sharing website ‘flickr’ we have managed to communicate, interact and gather together a stunning collection of over 400 abstract and aesthetic photographic works!

For this project I have reorganised a series of virtual online curations toward interconnected progressions of sensual, thought provoking and emotive works. Selected carefully each double-page spread features a self-contained visual duet, these pairings are also integral to the flow of the sequence as a whole. This continuity allows the viewer to visit any page at will and embark on an intriguing journey into a complex and ethereal world of delicate changing moods.

A space involving unexpected movements of colour, shape and form, minimal tonal progressions with gentle transitions from dark to light and warm to cool, subtle textural, linear and conceptual relationships and occasional mysterious figurative apparitions. Ultimately inviting emotional responses via the poetic adventures of the imagination and the senses.” Azurebumble (Alan Wilson)

various artists :: EIN MAGAZIN ÜBER ORTE NO. 8


The eighth edition of EIN MAGAZIN ÜBER ORTE No.8 is published, the theme is Paradise.

“The paradise does not exist. This is clear. That is a shame of course, the idea that a fulfilled, carefree existence would await us is too beautiful. But there is also one good thing about it. Because that way the paradise has become a projection surface for everything that is bigger, fairer, more transcendent and more livable than reality. Utopias concerning the paradise are allowed and also earthly moments, which appear heavenly, exist occasionally.

To follow others, when they ponder about the ephemeral term in texts and images, is very inspiring. All the more when in the latest Ein Magazin über Orte clichés are skipped and very different approaches are spread in a flowing current of thoughts and feelings. Dreams, wishes, hopes from the wide-ranging perspectives of many known and some less known artists and authors. What pleases me most is that the long deceased Kevin Coyne gets a chance to speak through his poem Skinhead in Heaven:

›Nobody is objecting my presence.
I don´t have to knock anybody about.‹

A state that is unattainable on earth for the time being.” (edit from

brancolina :: window stories, photo book

This book is a collection of visual stories written on windows. I was looking for interesting details, signs of human presence and reflections on window panes, those differences in repetition that add a touch of inconsistency to the strict order of a facade’s structural design and lend it a spatial dimension.

“Modern life is such that, confronted with the most mechanical, the most 
stereotypical repetitions, inside and outside ourselves, we endlessly extract from them little differences, variations and modifications. Conversely, secret, disguised and hidden repetitions, animated by the perpetual displacement of a difference, restore bare, mechanical and stereotypical repetitions, within and without us.” G.Deleuze, Difference and repetition

Concept, layouts and photography: Brancolina
Size: 20x25cm (10×8″)
80 pages, 40 photos
