Philippe Caladre and Jason Langer pair well with reflective tones. Melancholic invented history balances against an alluring film noir sentiment.

After having traveling the world by ship for 16 years Philippe Caladare began his career as a photographer. For health reasons he returned to land and began his life as a photographer. In videography and photography Caladare's work has the humor of film noir. His last series Ghost Station took interest in portraits of abandoned service stations. The new series, Fiction Factories borrows from real and imagined. Cement factories are borrowed from and recreated. The game between real and imagined is pushed and the monstrous industrial giants begin to act as monuments to imagined histories.

Jason Langer, seemingly quiet and largely patient, continues to construct a body of work of marked coherence. Interested in photography from a young age, Langer studied at the University of Oregon and gained influence from Arthur Tress and Michael Kenna Langer. Langeur brings us into a nocturnal world. We pass through darkness to discover forgotten time and romantic plane. Subtle surrealism, seductive ambiance, alluring scenes entice our curiosity.
