Our dear author André Cepeda has a fine solo exhibition going on at Museu do Neo-Realismo in Vila Franca de Xira (PT) and it is mostly about RIEN.
For those not able to make it, here’s a small tour:
Pierre von Kleist editions is proud to announce its new book:
RIEN by André Cepeda
Dark alleys, blocks of cement, tired naked bodies, strings that lead to nowhere, abandoned tubes.
Rien, the new André Cepeda book, is an immersive experience. Page after page we are led into a void where all things seem to have lost their name, creating a restless and suspended time.
More than looking at physical spaces, we feel as if in an endless present tense. There is Emptiness, but a desired one.
Cepeda makes the beautiful more white than black large format photographs look spontaneous and free. A book about the process of photographing, about film. A desire to touch and enlighten all things around us.

*** THE PIER by Nils Petter Lofstedt ****
This book documents a street art project embarked upon by photographer Nils Petter Löfstedt and Erik Vestman. Having discovered a cavity under a pier in Malmö, Sweden, Löfstedt and Vestman worked for 5 months to convert this anonymous concrete interior into an inviting room.
What they created has been called “Sweden’s most secretive and at the same time widely discussed street art projects.”
