Manic Shooter reimagines the aesthetics of early shoot 'em up video games. In-game screenshots of brightly coloured projectiles and spaceships, serve as raw material for the visual interpretation of Alain Vonck. This series of lively and evocative abstractions is complemented by the words of Guillaume Ladvie. Translated from French into Japanese and English, the poem deals with the dark and universal themes of war. This dialogue between words and images draws an ambiguous portrait of violence, lost between shadow and light.

AESTHETIX - by Tyrone Williams - £20
AESTHETIX is a new experimental body of work from Northampton-based photographer Tyrone Williams. 
This book is a maximalist exploration of the photographic image. Texture, light and colour are emphasised to become as equal of importance as the subject. In re-distributing these values, the images are pushed closer towards abstraction and take on a hallucinatory quality.
