What is it ?

A group dedicated to photography as a purely graphical expression

Photographism.
"Photographism" is a photographic form of expression where the image render or shape are the priority. The contents and subjects are here to get a result, not to be shown for themselves. It can be Kaleidoscopic works, diptychs, geometrical shots, animated pictures etc...

The purpose of this group is then to show contemporary art that uses photography as a way to produce images that create their own "graphical" reality.

Only admins suggest works to galleries... though anybody can join or watch of course.
You can also suggest others works to our admins by notes or whatever ;)... but please, don't suggest yours :)

Journals
3 BooksI have spent the last few months doing a real deep dive among the material I have collected over the past five years. I have sorted, thrown away and found a lot of unprocessed material. An exciting inventory that has resulted in several new pictures, but also several book projects. Three books are now complete, and I thought I would present them to you., Office Part of my “urbex-adventure”, this time it is all about office interiors 30X30 cm/20 pages with 20 high-res photos. Matte paper with Lay Flat technique. ,,,,, 2020 I remember that the last thing I did in 2019 was to travel the subway and take photos. My friend Malin and I had just started a joint project where the Stockholm metro would be at the center of a book project. I remember that we devoted so much energy to this, partly on our own, partly with joint tours and interesting discussions about ideas and aesthetics, about finding that situation when our completely different orientations as artists could nurture each other. But then the pandemic struck, and everything had to be put aside. In a relentless moment, everything stopped. In my mind, photography is first and foremost about exploring, about being able to move freely in both thought and feeling through the urban landscape, it is about looking for that which arouses the desire within oneself, the desire to tell, describe, transform, use and develop something that hopefully also evokes something in a viewer. But as I said, the pandemic put an end to this and in 2020 I hardly took a single photograph. But I did other things, I returned to my roots as a painter, I tried to find a way to use that experience in combination with other experiences I have accumulated over the years, with the digital toolset, with photography, with the feel of painting. And part of this effort is represented in this book. The images are emotional repercussions in how I experienced the year of 2020. 28x28 cm/26 pages and 25 high-resolution mixed media images – Matte photographic paper with Lay Flat technique.,,,,, Xplore - Chapter 1 This book project is not about abandoned places; it is not about urbex or urbanexploration. Well, yes, it is about exploration, of course, but isn’t that the fundamental basic of art; to explore, whether it is about exploring ideas or emotions or the concept of reality?​Urbex as a genre within photography seems to be about the places as a self-contained idea; it seems to be all about documenting these places and presenting them straight upto the world, saying: “I have been here”, without any real or obvious idea of why that is so important to tell, other than the sport of it; to be first on site, preferably the one and only. Well, I have never been particularly interested in sports, nor to be the one and only, and I am certainly not interested in being the first on site (that would be a contradiction to my basic idea as an artist). So, I do what I always do; I explore, for the thrill of it; I walk the beat, but I always try to use my explorations to make art, and I do think that art is the way, regardless of where my camera is aiming, continuing to focus on why not where.So, this book is about abandonment as an idea, not the abandoned places. It is about what we leave behind. It is about life in retrospect, about remembrance and how this affects me and hopefully you emotionally. I feel that human life or our activities as humans never is as clear as when we are ruled out and the focus is set on the traces we leave behind. This is what I try to convey; a sense of life in emptiness, an afterlife, or life after, if you will. 28x28 cm/26 pages and 25 high-resolution photos – Matte photographic paper with Lay Flat technique.,,,,, © 2021 by Samuel Poromaa
Fickle Friday: Quiet LightLISTEN TO THE SONG,I used to fall asleep to you talking to me I don't listen to anything now Nothing to do with us I'm just so tired of thinking about everything ,I'm not afraid of being alone I just don't know what to do with my time Between you and me, I thought it would all last a little while longer ,But I'm learning to lie here in the quiet light While I watch the sky go from black to gray Learning how not to die inside a little every time I think about you and wonder if you are awake ,You don't know anything I think about you way more than anything else ,I'm not that spiritual I still go out all the time to department stores Everything I need, but none of this is getting me anywhere good Between you and me I still fall apart at the thought of your voice ,But I'm learning to lie here in the quiet light While I watch the sky go from black to gray Learning how not to die inside a little every time I think about you and wonder if you are awake ,And I'm learning to live without the heartache it gives me Nothing I wouldn't do for another few minutes Learning how not to cry every time there's another sad unbearable morning But sometimes there's nothing I can do ,I can't help it It's you that I think I hear in the quiet light Am I crazy? You're nowhere near me, guess I don't know what I'm saying ,Just call me, I'll come to where you are alone in the quiet light I'm always thinking you're behind me And I turn around and you're always there ,But I'm learning to lie here in the quiet light While I watch the sky go from black to gray Learning how not to die, inside a little every time I think about you and wonder if you are awake ,And I'm learning to live without the heartache it gives me Nothing I wouldn't do for another few minutes Learning how not to cry every time there's another sad unbearable morning But sometimes there's nothing I can do,Thank you if you made it this far I thought I'd start the year right, by surprising you with a Fickle Friday. Yes, surprise, as it has become a rarity for us to publish these. The new Journal editeor isn't my biggest complaint, it's mostly the new way of finding deviations which makes it so hard for me. So I hope to be able to surprise you with these once more a little more regularly in this new year. Yet I'm glad we gave this series the name "Fickle", as it excuses me from making them anything other than out of pace Given that the Fickle Friday was always as much a part of Mouselemur as it is of Tandemfeaturs, and I can't post the same journal on both walls anymore, I have decided to grace them both with their own. If you want, you can check the other here -> ,Fickle Friday: Quiet LightJanuary 1, 2021LISTEN TO THE SONG I used to fall asleep to you
