Hi everyone, this is @laurahospes taking over @lensculture for the week! In the upcoming days, I’m going to show you a selection from my photo installation titled “Face.” The installation was made for my first solo exhibition called "I Survived Another Day" in the Netherlands and contains 48 self-portraits that look directly into the viewer's eyes. The photos are all part of my series UCP, which I made in 2015 when I was admitted into a psychiatric ward. This series also won the LensCulture Emerging Talent Award.

This self portrait was made during the first months of my hospitalization. As you can see, I have bandages around my wrist, because I tried to commit suicide by cutting them. The emotions I felt were so complicated that I could not even put what was going on into words. Making self portraits was my only way to get relief from these aggressive, fearsome emotions that were raging through me. So I did just that, and I made 20,000 self portraits in that year alone.

This is Nicolas Polli @nicolaspolli taking over the LensCulture account this week. I will be sharing works from my series ‘Ferox – the Forgotten Archives,’ a project showcasing the incredible archives from IEMS. A new book of these findings is now available through @ciaopress. “…We discovered the XYZ2O6 formula that contains some elements that do not exist on terrestrial soil. These elements aren’t present in any meteorite analysed so far…”

The discoveries made on the AACH 006 structure has allowed us to understand the Martian origin, but has at the same time ruled out the possibility that the meteorites are from Mars…”

I will be sharing works from my series ‘Ferox – the Forgotten Archives,’ a project showcasing the incredible archives from IEMS. A new book of these findings is now available through @ciaopress. “…There are several different kinds of trajectories from Earth to Ferox. Transfers based on conic sections are the most common type. A bi-elliptic transfer is one in which two ellipses, both with the sun as one focus, are drawn one tangent to Earth’s orbit…”

initial images of Ferox. The instrument had two opportunities to take pictures of Ferox (the first was on 24 March 2006) before FRO entered aero braking, during which time the camera was turned off for six months…”

Obrist at the Laboratory of IEMS at 05.31 PM were published, documenting the analysis of extracted particles of material of Ferox, they were expected with curiosity. And, even at this moment, it cannot be proclaimed with certainty that crucial chapters of science have to be amended…” #photography
