Photographer Inês d’Orey was commissioned to photograph the interiors of the typical food and wine industries of the Douro region of northern Portugal. The Douro is more than terraces, stone and river. Amid the stunning landscapes of this region are industrial areas where the agricultural bounty is processed for local consumption and export. d’Orey captures the stoves where the Mirandela sausages are smoked, the assembly line of a cheese factory in Lamego and the storage rooms where hams mature. At Peso da Régua and Santa Marta de Penaguião, there are old and contemporary deposits, where the wine patiently ages.

Photographer Vincent Delbrouck integrates his personal, contextual and fictional perspectives to produce lasting impressions of the countries he chooses to explore. Working with various media and materials, he uses literature and images to create a type of “poetic documentary”–fictionalized autobiographies, in effect, that viewers can incorporate into their own personal narratives. Over the last several years, he has been working in Nepal. Previously, he had been in Cuba, where he assembled, recycled and recomposed fragments of his eight-year experience there into a series titled Beyond History (Havana 1998-2006). Delbrouck, who was born in Brussels in 1975, has exhibited his work in solo and group shows throughout Europe, the United States and México. His monograph, Beyond History, was a finalist for the Book of the Year Award at Les Rencontres d’Arles Photographie in 2009.

The first-ever international exhibition of PDN’s 30 will be opening tonight at Ricoh’s Ring Cube photography gallery in the famous Ginza District of Tokyo, Japan. Each year for a special issue of PDN, the magazine’s editors select “30 Emerging Photographers to Watch” from a list of more than 300 photographers nominated by editors, curators, gallerists, art buyers and creatives.
The exhibition at Ricoh’s Ring Cube Gallery will include prints from each of the 2011 PDN’s 30 photographers, and will introduce the Japanese audience to PDN editors’ latest selection of talented emerging photographers in the fields of editorial, commercial, fashion, photojournalism and fine-art photography. PDN’s senior editor Conor Risch will be present at the exhibition opening this evening.
“I found this wonderful jumping spider in the brush looking at me as if he wanted to have a conversation.” Lyndon Johnson‘s arachnid portrait was included as part of The Great Outdoors 2011 online gallery.
