DoBeDo Newsletter #020

DoBeDo is happy to announce the release of Tshirt #020 in the ‘DoBeDo Photographers Series’ – ‘Paintings’ by Harley Weir. 

Paintings, an image from Weir’s new book of the same title – which is being published by Loose Joints – presents an image that digresses from the artist’s traditional photographic practice. Rather than confronting the concerns of trust, power and permission that weigh heavily upon her work produced for the fashion industry, Paintings shifts her attention onto the rhythm, colour and form of surfaces. This image, alongside the rest of the collection, is the result of consistent visual studies made by Weir throughout the past three years. 
The Tshirt is embroidered on the front with Harley’s initials HVW and has a full colour print on the back.

It is available to buy here. This Tshirt can also be purchased here (at a discount) as part of the DoBeDo Photographers Series Tshirt Subscription.
It is also available to buy as a special package along with the book on the Loose Joints website.

DoBeDo contributor Sean Vegezzi is releasing a new book, ‘DMYCC’, which documents the artists’ decade-long engagement with a cavernous underground area constructed beneath Lower Manhattan. DMYCC is comprised of the book, an hour long video piece and his first ever collection of prints. 

As New York City experienced aggressive development and hyper-securitization of public and private realms, Vegezzi and his friends were drawn towards undefined spaces to pursue their own forms of autonomy and release. From early adolescence onward they leveraged this piece of failed architecture into an alternate social forum, stage, club, and studio space. Over the years we see DMYCC develop from a contaminated space with non-functioning utilities into one treated with dust control chemicals to improve air quality, a working drainage system, primed walls, repaired electricity lines and lighting systems.

The book is presented as a loose chronological narrative, with the images in DMYCC eventually forming a comprehensive mapping of the territory; ranging from early evocative analogue photographs of youthful explorations through to video stills, receipts, and architectural floor plans; concluding with full-scale photographic surveys that challenge bureaucratic structural reports in both detail and formal composition. 

DMYCC is available to buy online here. The publication of DMYCC is also accompanied by the release of a collection of prints made available by the artist. More information is available here.

DoBeDo contributor Jamie Hawkesworth has an exhibition, Landscape with Tree, at Huis Marseille in Amsterdam. 

Hawkesworth’s approach to photography is grounded in the subtle, elegiac and playful heritage of British documentary photography. With his works exhibited across the 14 rooms of the beautiful Huis Marseille, Hawkesworth aims to create a photographic experience in synergy with the architectural setting, and in anticipation of your engagement with the works.

In Landscape with Tree you can explore the spectrum of experiences that Hawkesworth has sought out with his camera of the past ten years, and the places this has ultimately taken him. The exhibition manifests his sustained and transitory intimacies, planned and unexpected journeys, and wonderful immersions. 

The exhibition open until 3rd December 2017, at Huis Marseille
