Centers of Gravity
Photographs by Terri Weifenbach

These are photographs of sparrows. Weifenbach took these shots in her backyard.

In turning through the pages, the sparrow photographs only continue on and on. But in doing so, I begin to feel a longing — like my chest is gradually tightening.

The guise of the sparrow suddenly comes into view while we live out our every day; when projected through Terri’s eyes, though, they almost act as mirrors — reflecting our own lives back to us.

The Mechanism
Photographs by Mårten Lange

By way of black-and-white photographs that capture different sections of certain cities, this body of works instills one with a curious sensation that they are in floating in the air. Lange’s work reminds us of our sadness in this world ― modern-day society, with its advancements and its dangers ― together with its beauty.
