For one weekend every year, photographic tastemakers from around the world gather in Amsterdam for the Unseen Photo Fair, a two day-long celebration of a medium which, though still in its relative infancy, has revolutionised the way we communicate. It’s an opportunity for artistic dialogue, expression and debate, and serves to launch the careers of innumerable young contemporary photographers even as it pays tribute to the careers of other long-established ones.
With more than 54 galleries participating this year, the depth and breadth of works on display is greater than ever before, making the weekend an exceptional opportunity to start your own collection. In celebration of this fantastic event the AnOther team has picked out ten of its favourite pieces, including images by the likes of Albarran Cabrera and Mark Peckmezian, to whet your appetite.
Timotheus Tomicek, World, 2013
Cloud shots taken from airplane windows are a dime a dozen for the Instagram generation, so it's refreshing and enchanting in equal parts to see a photographer take our own self-publicising imagery to a new and distinctly more philosophical place. Timotheus Tomicekis fascinated by the limbo presented by air travel – a strange kind of semi-presence which exists far above earth and yet utterly apart from it – and with the word “WORLD” scrawled haphazardly in eyeliner on an airline window, this separation is simultaneously reinforced and diminished.
