Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Dieser bemerkenswerte Band würdigt einige der bewegendsten und inspirierendsten Kulturen der Welt. Mit Bildern von Prominenten wie Heidi Klum und den Black Eyed Peas. Als Zeugnis des Zusammenwirkens von Künstlern und Kulturen zeichnet dieses Buch die Spuren einer mehrjährigen kreativen Reise nach. Der international bekannte australische Fotograf Russell James war von der offiziellen Entschuldigung seiner Regierung bei der indigenen Bevölkerung des Kontinents tief bewegt. Darum machte er sich auf, den Kontakt zum ursprünglichen Erbe seines Landes zu suchen und über die kulturelle Kluft hinweg zur Versöhnung aufzurufen. Der Wunsch, seine eigene Fotografie mit der traditionellen Kunst der Aborigines zu vereinigen, trieb ihn an. Seither hat sich das Projekt zu einer Reihe internationaler Kooperationen und Partnerschaften ausgeweitet, die den beteiligten Künstlern wirtschaftlichen Nutzen bringen und das öffentliche Bewusstsein für die weltweit am stärksten bedrohten menschlichen Gemeinschaften und Kulturen steigern.

“Nomad Two Worlds” is a book that is not easy to categorize. It looks and feels like a “regular” coffee-table book, but it turns out to be much more than that. It combines elements of travel, fashion, and art photography with some original art and socially conscious message. It is the brainchild of Russell James, a displaced and itinerant Aussie photographer with an unusual and interesting life story. The impetus for the book came from the attempts to reconcile Australia’s two heritages that have for generations been at odds with each other: the ancient aboriginal culture and the recent colonizing European one. The clash of these cultures has often been painful and at times violent, and has left the deep scars on the Australian psyche. It was James’ hope that through photography and art he can bridge the gap between these cultures and bring them closer to each other. Over the years he has branched out to the other potential areas where there is a disconnect between the marginalized culture and the modern world, and in particular Haiti and the native North America.

Most of the photographs in this collection have been altered with the original art by a few of James’ collaborators. If you are looking for a pure photography book you may be disappointed. This is not to say that there is anything wrong with James’ photographs; to the contrary, they are very fascinating in their own right and his raw photography talent clearly comes through. However, the main aim of this book is to present a particular narrative – a merging of two worlds into a unique juxtaposition.

I loved this book at first sight... I am found of everything that's Australian and these pictures do have THE Australian Spirit. No surprise, Russel James and Hugh Jackman being among the Australian greatest artists.
Plus, it supports a wonderful association involved in the aboriginal cause.
So I bought one book for myself - and another one as a present for my best friend Annie's birthday.
2 happy women, thank you Mr Russel and Mr Jackman, we love you.

I love everything about Australia. The people, the art, the culture, the entire continent. This is a beautiful artistic book, that tells the story of it's native people, and how the people that came to settle there had no repect for them or their land. It is also the story of two men, from totally different worlds, who would have never been friends, came together through art and culture, had avery unique and unbreakable bond. It is now how the different stories of two people's cultures, have become the the one nation of Australia. The artwork in this book is incredible just like the story. This is not just a book to throw on your coffee table. This is a beautiful story of the people of Australia, and is not to be missed.

This offers a remarkable collection of Russell James's photography: portraits, natural world, and figure - which, itself covers a wide range. Within figure, some models appear floating weightlessly, textured with sand, or elegantly posed. Then, in the next section, many of those photos appear again, plus some new ones. This time, though, primitive, hand-drawn designs overlay each one. Energetic geometries appear, often in earth tones, suggesting a rend in the fabric that separates photographic reality from dream-time. This sense is deliberate, a collaboration with one of Australia's native people, and an homage to the culture that suffered so badly under Eurpoean rule. This blending of photography and painting goes even further in the section titled "Haiti." Energetic painting covers more of the visual space in many pieces, little to none in others.

As a whole, this body of work offers more mystery than not. It evokes vivid symbols - but symbols drawn from a culture very different from mine, leaving me to wonder, in many cases, what the artists hoped to convey. Mystery isn't altogether a bad thing, though, and I don't look for every image to reveal itself easily. The combination of photographic technology with ancient art forms kept alive says plenty, though. It reminds the viewer that, no matter how advanced the mechanism used in creating an image, it's still a human creation drawn from the pool of primal feeling and experience that's as old as humankind.
