Japanese photo of the twentieth century

September 20, 2015

“Japan tales place” can bee seen at Etnografiska Museet Stockholm until spring 2016.  Treasures from the Japanese island reveal a 10 000 year old cultural history. For almost 450 years west has drawn inspiration from it. “Japan takes place” is a mosaic of exhibitions, films, activities and photography focusing on Japanese aesthetic and Japanese rooms.

The piQmo eyes was of course drawn to photography. A century ago these portraits would have been sold in postcard formats. By this time photography had become part of the lifestyle of Japan´s new middle class. Meeting spots for new photographers as well as professional photographers became a normality at that time.

In these portraits of young Japanese woman you met European mentalities and material with local ones. To pose seated in a photography was the new trend. The models wee often actress, prostitutes and geishas. They experimented with the expectations of orientals, fans and tourists. Many types of Stories, thoughts and feelings are stirred by these portraits.

Enjoy the lovely photos.

Soledad Lowe works by appointment to create one of a kind jewelry, often privately ordered higher end statement pieces. Alongside her design work, Soledad regularly gives lectures and consults for auction houses.

Soledad was moved by an image by Shafiur Rahman, maybe as a reaction to current events unravelling in Syria.

Her own description of the image:
A moment of reflection and a sense of peace that these men have in the mist of their surroundings.

Your choice Louise von Stockenström

We like to hear what photos and photo art people on the street and our followers like at piQmo. Why we do this? well, we think its important to keep our ear to the ground.

We started with the lovely Louise von Stockenström, also piQmo customer. She chose one of those she has in her home. “Storm” in the Seven Seas serie by Saga Wendotte.

What do you like about the photo Louise?
“I like the simple playfulness in the photo. It´s calm but yet a storm. And just a grip of the fabric will change the whole scenery. My son can look at this photo for hours. We have it at home. I will keep my eyes at Saga Wendotte. I think her photo is very interesting. There is always an element of doubt and you do not really know what it is you feel”

We like to hear what photos and photo art people on the street and our followers like at piQmo. Why we do this? well, we think its important to keep our ear to the ground.

Therefor we ask people on the street and piQmo followers what photos they like in piQmo gallery. This is of course interesting for those buy a lot of photo art to see where and how the emerging photo art market is moving but also for those who are new to photo art who want to gain knowledge and see what kind of photo art people on the street buy. This is a way for both parties to see the photo art market trends from those that buy it and from piQmo´s experience and focus on the new talents.

Caroline af Ugglas as the known-un known photographer in piQmo gallery

For the first time ever you can see one of Swedens most beloved artist, Caroline af Ugglas, showing her photos in piQmo gallery. Luckily Caroline said yes when we asked her if she wanted to participate in our project “known-unknown photographer”. The project aims to famous people not associated with photography taking their own photographs and showing them with piQmo gallery were they also are sold.

Her photo art will be displayed in piQmo gallery and for the first time at Affordable Art Fair in Stockholm October 1st. We are showing three of her photos and they are limited in 25 each.

In common with Caroline af Ugglas we think art should be reachable for everyone and we want to give everybody a chance to buy with reasonable prices.

Photograph. The word literally means “drawing of light”. In this sense, the starting point of the series is a photographic one. Yet, the works can also be perceived as paintings – almost monochromatic with only subtle shifts in colour, making them vulnerable to the changing light conditions of the day.

We like the rough process. The artist has used light sensitive pigment and applied it onto large sheets of heavy, white paper. After preparing them in a darkroom, she took them to the beach and exposed them to sunlight. Then rinsed them in seawater and laid to dry on the beach to absorb the blue sea, the blue horizon and the blue sky, all at once.
