Until I Gush Forth

My name is Manuel Esthaem, I'm a photographic artist based in Linz Austria. My work has been part of various group exhibitions around the world, as well as numerous online and print publications. Most recently my work has been shown in the If You Leave Showcase 2016 in London. 

Until I Gush Forth is my first ever print publication and will be printed in a limited edition of 100. Every copy will be signed and hand-numbered.

I've spent the past few months working on this new body of work that deals with the topic of the unknown. It is a meditation on living with the unknown as a constant companion. On the liberating but often times paralyzing and reality-altering feelings of what it means to wander along a vague path with no set destination. Staged photographs are set up against alienated snapshots and together create a visual poem that talks about a topic that's familiar to anyone. 

Most of the images were shot on black and white film which I personally hand-developed.

About Esthaem

Self Portrait with Odin, 2016
Self Portrait with Odin, 2016

Esthaem (b. 1992) is a photographic artist based in Linz, Austria. He holds a BA in Graphic-Design and Photography from the University of Art and Design Linz and is currently studying Visual Communication.

Drawn to nature, life itself and the human body, he uses the latter and treats it as a sculptural object, allowing him to explore topics such as identity, intimacy, (de-)construction of sexuality, gender as well as the self through his photographic work.

He wanders along the narrow path of theory and its discourses, photography as art and his personal point of view, all while maintaining a distinct photographic vision which is often being referred to as „visual poetry“.

His images are a mirror of his own constructed reality, portraits of difficult to grasp subject matters that aim to translate his analysis of the world into aesthetically pleasing imagery full of fragile moments, sensuality and symbolism.

Risks and challenges

I am and have been extremely passionate about this project, the series itself, the design of the zine as well as the screen printing of the banderoles are finished, the only thing that's left is the printing of the zine.

I am very determined to make this project come to life and if it gets funded, I will be able to send out the rewards by the end of March.
