Markus Andersen’s photographs feature the city of Sydney as an abstracted backdrop for a fragile human presence, one dwarfed by overwhelming architectural development and consumerism. In these moody black-and-white images, people scurry about and are literally exposed by light. Struck by shafts of illumination between buildings, they are like insects coming out for food.

With a title taken from Dylan Thomas’ famous poem (‘Do not go gentle into that good night …. Rage, rage against the dying of the light’), Rage Against the Light features analogue and digital photographs in which Andersen captures bleak city vistas inhabited by people who are often solitary and lost in thought. He admits to being drawn to the ‘darker side’ of this city but his images are also marked by flourishes of whimsy and irony.

The introductory essay in Rage Against The Light is written by Sandy Edwards, curator and co-director of the highly respected Stills Gallery in Sydney. Edwards also works as an exhibiting artist/photographer and is the founder of ARTHERE, an organisation that provides services to photographers throughout Australia. The essay Baby, it’s cold outside was written by the book’s Editor, Andrew Gaynor. He is a freelance curator and writer based in Melbourne.

Rage, rage against the dying of the light’), Andersen’s photos feature the city of Sydney as an abstracted backdrop for a fragile human presence dwarfed by overwhelming architectural development and consumerism. In these moody black-and-white images, essayist Sandy Edwards notes that ‘people scurry about being literally exposed by light. They are struck by shafts of it between buildings like insects coming out for food.’ Andersen’s subjects are often solitary and lost in thought. Others are frozen by the camera as they rush to their next destination, huddled against the relentless presence of an unforgiving built environment. Andersen admits to being drawn to the ‘darker side’ of Sydney but his images are also marked by flourishes of whimsy and irony. As Edwards writes ‘it is reassuring to feel the artist’s presence in the images.’ Markus Andersen’s art practice encompasses documentary, conceptual and street photography across all forms of analogue and digital formats. He has held solo and collaborative exhibitions in New York, Paris, Toronto, Istanbul, United Kingdom and Sydney. The essayist Sandy Edwards is Curator and co-director of the renowned Stills Gallery in Sydney. She also works as an exhibiting artist, writer and independent curator. T&G Publishing is committed to producing high quality books featuring the work of Australian contemporary photographers. Previous subjects have included Lewis Morley, Martin Parr, Ingeborg Tyssen and Brad Rimmer. Many editions have completely sold out and the Max Pam book Atlas Monographs won the ‘Best Photography Book of the Year – International Category’ award at PhotoEspaña 2010.
