Joel Meyerowitz's introduction to photography illuminates how photographers transform everyday scenes into meaningful moments

Aimed at children between the ages of eight and twelve, Seeing Things is a wonderful introduction to photography that asks how photographers transform ordinary things into meaningful moments. In this book, acclaimed and beloved photographer Joel Meyerowitz takes readers on a journey through the power and magic of photography: its abilities to freeze time, tell a story, combine several layers into one frame and record life’s fleeting and beautiful moments. The book features the work of masters such as William Eggleston, Mary Ellen Mark, Helen Levitt and Walker Evans, among many others. Each picture is accompanied by a short commentary, encouraging readers to look closely and use their imagination to understand key ideas in photography such as light, gesture, composition—and, ultimately, how there is wonder all around us when viewed through the lens.
Joel Meyerowitz (born 1938) is an award-winning photographer whose work has appeared in over 350 exhibitions in museums and galleries around the world. He is a two-time Guggenheim Fellow, a recipient of both National Endowment for the Arts and National Endowment for the Humanities awards and a recipient of the Deutscher Fotobuchpreis. He has published over 15 books and divides his time between New York and Italy.

Now in an English-only edition published for two parallel exhibitions at The Museum of Modern Art and Bard College, Imponderable features highlights from the incredible magic and occult collection of New York–based artist Tony Oursler (born 1957). Since the late 1990s, Oursler has been amassing a vast personal archive of objects and ephemera relating to magic, the paranormal, film, television, phantasmagoria, pseudoscience and technology. For Oursler, the archive functions as an open visual resource, historical inquiry and—most intriguingly—a family history. One of the collection’s many digressions records the friendship between the artist’s grandfather Charles Fulton Oursler (a famous early 20th-century author and publisher) and magician and escapologist Harry Houdini, and a historic interaction with Arthur Conan Doyle, who, beyond his Sherlock Holmes series, was an important advocate for spiritualism and the paranormal.
This beautifully produced publication features up to 1,500 objects from Oursler’s collection, including photographs, prints, historic manuscripts, rare books, letters and objects. Additional topics include stage magic, thought photography, demonology, cryptozoology, optics, mesmerism, automatic writing, hypnotism, fairies, cults, the occult, color theory and UFOs. Thirteen essays by renowned art historians, science specialists and international scholars provide a deep insight into this unique material.

“So many people take those simple snapshots of life, but there’s something about Eggleston that no one can match.” —Sofia Coppola

The eminent American photographer William Eggleston (b. 1939) was a pioneer in exploring the artistic potential of color photography. Eggleston made a name for himself with his eccentric, unexpected compositions of everyday life that were nonetheless rife with implied narrative, elevating the commonplace to art. This sumptuously illustrated book features Eggleston’s masterful portraits, including many familiar and beloved images as well as some previously unseen photographs from his long and productive career.

Many of Eggleston’s poetic photographs portray life in his home state of Tennessee, and the people he encountered there. Eggleston frequented the 1970s Memphis club scene, where he met, befriended, and photographed musicians such as fellow Southerners Alex Chilton and Ike Turner. He also photographed celebrities including Dennis Hopper, Walter Hopps, and Eudora Welty, and became a fixture of Andy Warhol’s Factory scene, dating the Warhol protégé Viva. Over the past half century, he has created a powerful and enduring body of work featuring friends and family, musicians, artists, and strangers. In addition to the lavish reproductions of Eggleston’s portraits, this volume includes an essay and chronology, plus an interview with Eggleston and his close family members that gives new insights into his images and artistic process.

Born in Antwerp in 1941 and a member of Magnum Photos since 1982, Harry Gruyaert revolutionized creative and experimental uses of color in the 1970s and 1980s. Influenced by cinema and American photographers, his work defined new territory for color photography: an emotive, non-narrative, and boldly graphic way of perceiving the world.

In 1972, while living in London, Gruyaert created the striking series TV Shots by turning the dial on a television set at random and photographing the distorted images he saw there. A later series, Made in Belgium, portrays his ambivalent relationship with his homeland in a palette of saturated tones. In his most recent work, he embraces the possibilities of digital photography, taking further creative risks to capture light in new ways.

Gruyaert’s images are autonomous, often independent of any context or thematic logic. This volume, the first retrospective of his work, is a superb overview of his personal quest for freedom of expression and the liberation of the senses. 80 color illustrations

In The Portrait Machine Project, Brooklyn-based New Zealand photographer Carlo Van de Roer (born 1975) explores the idea that a camera can reveal otherwise hidden facets of a subject’s character, and their relationship with the photographer and viewer. Van de Roer uses a Polaroid aura camera, developed in the 1970s in an attempt to record what a psychic might see. His subjects--friends, family, artists Miranda July, Terence Koh and Aurel Schmidt, author James Frey--are connected by sensors to the camera, which translates biofeedback into information about their characters and how they are viewed. The camera depicts this information as color in the Polaroid and as a printed description and diagram. In this, his first book, Van de Roer prompts us to question what we expect from a portrait, particularly when it’s of someone we think we know.

The Living Surface: An Alternative Biology Book on Stains is an intriguing look at the work, artistic practice and materials used by Dutch designer and artist Lizan Freijsen (b. 1960). Her practice has evolved from painting, mixed media and public spaces to photographic research where her fascination with dried stains from everyday environments take a central place. Within the framework of a master’s study in design research (2014–16), Freijsen rekindled her interest in the lost craft of hand tufting, incorporating these organic patterns in her handmade carpets, tapestries, blankets and other textiles, which have been crafted over the last eight years. This publication features the timeconsuming production of carpets by means of this hand-tufting technique, combined with form and color studies; an overview of her extensive photo archive of stains, fungi and mildew cataloged by location; and a section that lists their CMYK formula.

While working on his celebrated book Cloud Studies on the history of scientific cloud photography from the 1880s through the 1960s, Leipzig artist/photographer Helmut Völter discovered the untouched archive of cloud studies by the Japanese physicist Masanao Abe (1891–1966). Fascinated by the quality, uniqueness of observation concept, precision and formal rigor of Abe’s photographs, Volter publishes them here for the first time in this both elegant and expansive publication. In the 1920s, Abe built an observatory with a view of Mount Fuji from which over the course of 15 years, he recorded the ever-changing cloud formations surrounding the iconic mountain. Abe ingeniously combined several film processes in his longterm study—photography, film, stereo-photogrammetry, stereo-film, drawings, maps and meteorological measurements—to discover more about the invisible air streams around Mt Fuji. Volter reproduces a variety of images by this passionate cineaste who saw photographs, moving pictures and stereo recordings as the ideal form of scientific evidence.

Representations of animals are ubiquitous: from advertising hoardings, newspapers, books, magazines, and television shows, to the hundreds of thousands of images uploaded every day to the Internet. During the last twenty years, artists, too, have engaged with the animal in an effort to articulate more “beastly” visions. How can animals as autonomous creative entities take possession of an unshackled imaginative space cut loose from the human? Beastly/ Tierisch has an innovative, visually daring design, superimposing a selection of artistic works onto a host of pictures from the Internet. This rich image material is supplemented by four essays: about animality and the history of photography (Duncan Forbes), the political and philosophical animal (Slavoj Žižek), the virtual zoo of the Internet (Ana Teixeira Pinto), and the changing identities of animals under anthropogenic pressures (Heather Davis).

Hello, Robot.: Design between Human and Machine investigates how robotics is becoming part of our everyday lives, demonstrating that design in its traditional function as a mediator is indispensable if robots are to become a visible reality and not just remain hidden in washing machines, cars and cash machines.
The volume clarifies where we already encounter these intelligent machines and where we may come across them in the near future: in industry, in the military and in everyday settings; at nurseries and retirement homes; in our bodies and in the cloud; when shopping and having sex; in video games and, of course, in film and literature.
In a series of in-depth essays and interviews, experts such as the science-fiction author Bruce Sterling, novelist Douglas Coupland, architect Philip Beesley, and the design duo Dunne & Raby explore the question of how we deal with our environment becoming increasingly digital, smarter and more autonomous. They highlight our often ambivalent relationship to new technologies and discuss the opportunities and challenges that are posed to us as individuals and as a society in this context.
Hello, Robot. broadens the scope of the discussion to the ethical and political questions with which we are faced today in the light of technological advances in robotics, while confronting us with the contradictions that are often found in the answers to these questions.

Since 1995, Hendrik Kerstens has been photographing his daughter, Paula, creating moving portraits in the spirit of Vermeer. Born in The Hague in 1956, Kerstens is a self-taught photographer whose work has been shown in more than 40 exhibitions across Europe and the United States. His work is in major museum collections and is frequently featured in the New York Times magazine, and has inspired tastemakers as diverse as Elton John and Alexander McQueen. (McQueen used Kerstens’s now-iconic portrait Bag as the invitation for his fall 2009 collection.) Here, Kerstens lovingly portrays Paula as a self-possessed young woman (with a sense of humor), as well as projecting onto her his fascination with the Dutch Master painters of the 17th century. The resulting portraits seem at once contemporary and timeless. Kersten’s beautiful, haunting images, filled with “Dutch light,” express both paternal love and a deep respect for craft. Essays by photography curators Martin Barnes and Deborah Klochko examine the Paula images, considering them as an ongoing, three-way dialogue between photographer and sitter, and photographer and audience, and also discuss Kerstens' influences his larger body of work.

"I took these photographs around 1963 and 1964 at Nagisa Hotel in Zushi, Nagisa Hotel in Shinagawa, and Chigasaki Beach. The subject was my girlfriend, her initials Y.O. Back then I worked at a design firm in Ginza, Tokyo, and I photographed them in seven or eight sessions we had on my days off. It was my hope to have them published in the monthly magazine Camera Mainichi, but Shoji Yamagishi, the editor, did not approve. It has been 50 years since then and my wish has finally been fulfilled."

In the first project under this initiative, photographer Renato D’Agostin, acclaimed for his photo essays of the world’s great cities, turns his lens on Los Angeles. As a first time visitor, he re-thinks LA from a place of instinct, illuminating the relationship between architecture and humanity to create an intuitive emotional narrative of the city.

Accompanying D’Agostin’s photographs is an essay by celebrated critic, urban and media historian, and novelist Norman Klein. Having authored several seminal books on the subject of LA, he now explores light as an invisible yet omnipresent character in our collective memory. From the post-war suburban blur to the rise of feudalism, Klein charts the emotional architecture of LA and its evolution into “New Byzantium” – a crossroad between worlds.

Hippie Modernism examines the art, architecture and design of the counterculture of the 1960s and early 1970s. The catalogue surveys the radical experiments that challenged societal norms while proposing new kinds of technological, ecological and political utopia. It includes the counter-design proposals of Victor Papanek and the anti-design polemics of Global Tools; the radical architectural visions of Archigram, Superstudio, Haus-Rucker-Co and ONYX; the installations of Ken Isaacs, Joan Hills, Mark Boyle, Hélio Oiticica and Neville D'Almeida; the experimental films of Jordan Belson, Bruce Conner and John Whitney; posters and prints by Emory Douglas, Corita Kent and Victor Moscoso; documentation of performances by the Diggers and the Cockettes; publications such as Oz and The Whole Earth Catalog; books by Marshall McLuhan and Buckminster Fuller; and much more.


While the turbulent social history of the 1960s is well known, its cultural production remains comparatively under-examined. In this substantial volume, scholars explore a range of practices such as radical architectural and anti-design movements emerging in Europe and North America; the print revolution in the graphic design of books, posters and magazines; and new forms of cultural practice that merged street theater and radical politics. Through a profusion of illustrations, interviews with figures including Gerd Stern and Michael Callahan of USCO, Gunther Zamp Kelp of Haus-Rucker-Co, Ken Isaacs, Ron Williams and Woody Rainey of ONYX, Franco Raggi of Global Tools, Tony Martin, Clark Richert and Richard Kallweit of Drop City, and new scholarly writings, this book explores the conjunction of the countercultural ethos and the modernist desire to fuse art and life.

Africa in Stereo analyzes how Africans have engaged with African American music and its representations in the long twentieth century (1890-2011) to offer a new cultural history attesting to pan-Africanism's ongoing and open theoretical potential. Tsitsi Jaji argues that African American popular music appealed to continental Africans as a unit of cultural prestige, a site of pleasure, and most importantly, an expressive form already encoded with strategies of creative resistance to racial hegemony. Ghana, Senegal and South Africa are considered as three distinctive sites where longstanding pan-African political and cultural affiliations gave expression to transnational black solidarity. The book shows how such transnational ties fostered what Jaji terms "stereomodernism." Attending to the specificity of various media through which music was transmitted and interpreted-poetry, novels, films, recordings, festivals, live performances and websites-stereomodernism accounts for the role of cultural practice in the emergence of solidarity, tapping music's capacity to refresh our understanding of twentieth-century black transnational ties.

The late 1950s and early 1960s saw a large number of central and sub-Saharan African countries gaining independence, and one of the key ways in which they expressed their newly established national identity was through distinctive architecture. Parliament buildings, stadiums, universities, central banks, convention centers, and other major public buildings and housing projects were built in daring, even heroic designs—markers of the bright future these nations envisioned after independence.
         
African Modernism is the first book to take a close look at the relationship between these cutting-edge architectural projects and the processes of nation building in Ghana, Senegal, Côte d’Ivoire, Kenya, and Zambia. Presenting some seven hudnred color photographs by celebrated photographers Iwan Baan and Alexia Webster and insightful analyses of the interactions of architectural innovation and developing national political and social cultures, African Modernism will be of interest to historians of architecture and Africa alike.

Uncommon Places By Stephen Shore
80 USD
Originally published in 1982, Stephen Shore's legendary Uncommon Places has influenced more than a generation of photographers. Shore was among the first artists to take color beyond the domain of advertising and fashion photography, and his large-format color work on the American vernacular landscape inaugurated a vital photographic tradition. Uncommon Places: The Complete Works, published by Aperture in 2005, presented a definitive collection of the landmark series, and in the span of a decade has become a contemporary classic. Now, for this lushly produced reissue, the artist has added nearly 20 rediscovered images and a statement explaining what it means to expand a classic series. Like Robert Frank and Walker Evans before him, Shore discovered a hitherto unarticulated vision of America via highway and camera. Approaching his subjects with cool objectivity, Shore retains precise systems of gestures in composition and light through which a hotel bedroom or a building on a side street assumes both an archetypal aura and an ambiguously personal importance. An essay by critic and curator Stephan Schmidt-Wulffen and a conversation with Shore by writer Lynne Tillman examine his methodology and elucidate his roots in Pop and Conceptual art. The texts are illustrated with reproductions from Shore's earlier series American Surfaces and Amarillo: Tall in Texas.
At age 14 Stephen Shore (born 1947) had his work purchased by Edward Steichen for The Museum of Modern Art, New York. At 17 Shore was a regular at Andy Warhol's Factory, producing an important photographic document of the scene, and in 1971 at the age of 23 he became the first living photographer since Alfred Stieglitz 40 years earlier to have a one-man show at the Met. He has had numerous one-man shows, among others at The Museum of Modern Art, New York; George Eastman House, Rochester; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; and The Art Institute of Chicago. Since 1982 he has been Director of the Photography Program at Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, New York.

A striking photographic testimonial to the people of Tierra del Fuego, a society defined by magic, spirits, and communion with nature

A German missionary sent to Tierra del Fuego in 1919 by his congregation, Martin Gusinde was a major Americanist and ethnographer from the first half of the twentieth century. While his mission was ostensibly to convert the native peoples among whom he lived, Gusinde did just the opposite, eventually becoming one of the first Westerners ever to be initiated into the various sacred rites of the inhabitants of Tierra del Fuego. In the course of four sojourns made between 1919 and 1924, from the canals of Western Patagonia to the great island of Tierra del Fuego, he learned and wrote about the Kawésqar, Yamana, and Selk’nam peoples. Gradually, the missionary became an anthropologist.

Fascinated by what he saw, Gusinde took more than one thousand photographs, all produced using a portable darkroom. Gusinde captured some truly extraordinary images that his contemporaries were unable to: feather-clad bodies sporting high headdresses made of bark, wrapped up in guanaco furs, or entirely covered with ritual paint, populating a landscape battered by wind, rain, and snow―the heart of a natural world that Darwin had celebrated, not long before, for its wildness. A dazzling visual experience, Gusinde’s photographs are a monument to the memory of the Tierra del Fuego people as well as an exceptional anthropological document. 100 + Tritone illustrations.

In a fleeting fourteen year period, sandwiched between two world wars, Germany’s Bauhaus school of art and design changed the face of modernity. With utopian ideals for the future, the school developed a pioneering fusion of fine art, craftsmanship, and technology to be applied across painting, sculpture, design, architecture, film, photography, textiles, ceramics, theatre, and installation.

As much an intense personal community as a publicly minded collective, the Bauhaus was first founded by Walter Gropius (1883–1969), and counted Josef and Anni Albers, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, Oskar Schlemmer,Gunta Stölzl, Marianne Brandt and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe among its members. Between its three successive locations in Weimar, Dessau and Berlin, the school fostered charistmatic and creative exchange between teachers and students, all varied in their artistic styles and preferences, but united in their idealism and their interest in a “total” work of art across different practices and media.

This book celebrates the adventurous innovation of the Bauhaus movement, both as a trailblazer in the development of modernism, and as a paradigm of art education, where an all-encompassing freedom of creative expression and cutting-edge ideas led to functional and beautiful creations.

The Sick Rose is a visual tour through the golden age of medical illustration. The nineteenth century experienced an explosion of epidemics such as cholera and diphtheria, driven by industrialization, urbanization and poor hygiene. In this pre-color-photography era, accurate images were relied upon to teach students and aid diagnosis. The best examples, featured here, are remarkable pieces of art that attempted to elucidate the mysteries of the body, and the successive onset of each affliction. Bizarre and captivating images, including close-up details and revealing cross-sections, make all too clear the fascinations of both doctors and artists of the time. Barnett illuminates the fears and obsessions of a society gripped by disease, yet slowly coming to understand and combat it. The age also saw the acceptance of vaccination and the germ theory, and notable diagrams that transformed public health, such as John Snow’s cholera map and Florence Nightingale’s pioneering histograms, are included and explained. Organized by disease, The Sick Rose ranges from little-known ailments now all but forgotten to the epidemics that shaped the modern age.

This publication reissues a beloved photobook classic—acknowledged as such by Martin Parr and Gerry Badger in the third volume of The Photobook: A History—that has been out of print since the hardcover edition was published in 2010. As photographer Jason Fulford (born 1973) recently learned firsthand, mushrooms have a way of growing and spreading wherever they touch ground. It all started when a friend of Fulford's gave him a box, found at a flea market, full of photos of mushrooms—unassuming pictures taken by an unknown but almost certainly amateur photographer, apparently as notes for some mycological studies. Fulford's art photographs (aside from his well-known book Dancing Pictures, which depicted people getting down to their favorite songs) are usually of staid, quasi-mute objects: a smashed Dorito chip overrun with ants, two bronzed doorknobs spooning, the blank back of a street sign. Yet these mushroom images got stuck in Fulford's mind, like a bad song sometimes does, and they started to grow in his own work. The Mushroom Collector combines some of the original flea-market mushroom pictures with his own images and text by the artist about the project.

The road trip is an enduring symbol in American culture. Ever since cars became widely available, the road stretching over the horizon has represented a sense of possibility and freedom, discovery and escape—a place to get lost and find yourself in the process. The American road trip has appeared prominently in lit­erature, music, and movies, but it has had an especially powerful influence on photography. As photographers have embarked on trips across the United States with the express purpose of making work, they have created some of the most important photographs in the history of the medium: from images by Walker Evans, Henri Cartier-Bresson, and Berenice Abbott to Robert Frank’s seminal 1950s odyssey, The Americans. From Stephen Shore to Ryan McGinley, hundreds of other photographers have continued the tradition.

The Open Road is the first book to explore the photographic road trip as a genre. It opens with a comprehensive introduction, which traces the rise of road culture in America and considers photographers on the move across the country and across the century, from the early 1900s to present day. Each chapter explores one body of work in depth through informative texts and a portfolio of images, beginning with Robert Frank, and including such renowned work as Garry Winogrand’s 1964, Joel Sternfeld’s American Prospects, William Eggleston’s Los Alamos, and Alec Soth’s Sleeping by the Mississippi. The Open Road is a visual tour-de-force, pres­enting the story of photographers for whom the American road is muse.

Tucked away in London's edgy Soho district, Polpo is one of the most irrepressibly buzzing restaurants in town. Critics and food aficionados have been flocking to this understated bacaro where Russell Norman serves up small dishes-think tapas-from the back streets of Venice. A far cry from the tourist-trap eateries of the famous floating city, this kind of cooking is unfussy, innovative, and exuberantly delicious. The 120 recipes in this book range from salads and snacks to small main courses, drinks, and desserts, including asparagus with Parmesan and anchovy butter; warm duck salad with beets and walnuts; crispy baby pizzas with zucchini, mint and chilli; scallops with lemon and peppermint; soft-shell crab in Parmesan batter with fennel; fizzy bellinis and glasses of bright orange spritz; panacotta with poached rhubarb; and warm autumn fruits with amaretto cream.

The recipes are accompanied by luminescent photography within a dazzling design, including a distinctive stripped-away spine to reveal colorful Japanese stitching--a feature that also allows the book to lie open flat on a chef's workstation. Polpo captures the unfrequented corners, bustling bacari, and sublime waterways of Venice as they've never been seen before.

During his travels through China, Peter Bialobrzeski (born 1961) became aware of the constructions known as “nail houses”--derelict houses earmarked for demolition, whose owners refused to vacate. In Nail Houses or the Destruction of Lower Shanghai, the artist gathers photographs of these isolated structures, often captured in the evening hours, when brightly lit windows convey a sense of the domestic comfort these homes provide for their owners, despite their condition. Bialobrzeski stands up for these stubborn homeowners, compelling the viewer to face uncomfortable questions and underscoring the right of every human being to a home and a feeling of security. Following the publication of Case Study Homes and Informal Arrangements, this striking volume completes the Habitat trilogy.

ohn Berger’s explorations of the relationships between the individual and society, culture and politics, and experience and expression through the written word, films, photographic collaborations and performances are unmatched in their diversity, ambition and reach. His television series and book Ways of Seeing revolutionized the way that art is understood. Now, Understanding a Photograph gathers the photography writings of one of the most internationally influential authors of the past 50 years. Understanding a Photograph is arranged chronologically, leading the reader on a thought-provoking journey through selected essays from hallmark works such as “About Looking” and “Another Way of Telling,” as well as previously uncollected pieces written for exhibitions or catalogues that discuss a wide range of artists--from August Sander to Jitka Hanzlová. This collection of some 25 texts has been carefully selected by novelist and essayist Geoff Dyer, who has also written a critical study of Berger’s oeuvre.
John Berger (born 1926) is a novelist, poet, screenwriter and critic. He is the author of numerous works of fiction and nonfiction, including To the Wedding, About Looking and G., for which he was awarded the Booker Prize.

In the last decade there has been a major reappraisal of the role and status of the photobook within the history of photography. Newly revised histories of photography as recorded via the photobook have added enormously to our understanding of the medium's culture, particularly in places that are often marginalized, such as Latin America and Africa. However, until now, only a handful of Chinese books have made it onto historians' short lists. Yet China has a fascinating history of photobook publishing, and The Chinese Photobook will reveal for the first time the richness and diversity of this heritage. This volume is based on a collection compiled by Martin Parr and Beijing- and London-based Dutch photographer team WassinkLundgren. And while the collection was inspired initially by Parr's interest in propaganda books and in finding key works of socialist realist photography from the early days of the Communist Party and the Cultural Revolution era, the selection of books includes key volumes published as early as 1900, as well as contemporary volumes by emerging Chinese photographers. Each featured photobook offers a new perspective on the complicated history of China from the twentieth century onward. The Chinese Photobook embodies an unprecedented amount of research and scholarship in this area, and includes accompanying texts and individual title descriptions by Gu Zheng, Raymond Lum, Ruben Lundgren, Stephanie H. Tung and Gerry Badger.

Publisher's Description:
Travel memoir comfortably sized for your back pocket & photo etchings.
In 2006, I (Erik Bejamins) spent six months in Florence, Italy as an American student abroad. Eight years later, I returned for six weeks to teach, walk, watch, think, eat, and learn. Butts of Florence is a collection of writing and photographs taken during this six-week stay. Formal black and white photographs of the butts of various Florentine sculptures punctuate writing that adopts the forms of diaristic entries, appropriated letter writing, travel guide tips, restaurant reviews, and poetic prose. Together, the text and image present the arc of a hungry, critical, introspective, romantic, and grateful visitor. This work was intended to be completed with quickness and spontaneity, being sent to print before the last mosquito bites had healed.
Working with master printer, John Greco, at Josephine Press in Santa Monica, it seemed appropriate to counter the lo-fi casual’ness of the publication with an object appropriate for the walls of the Getty.
On the day you depart, there’s not much time for romantic, heart-tugging reflection. Your ride leaves at 6:30, continuing the small and consistent waves of anxious pin pricks. You make it to the airport on time, early even, able to enjoy a last cappuccino immediately followed by a macchiato. The euro centesimi, pulled from a sandwich bag you found in a back pocket of your suitcase. The ziplock probably used to safely transport some kind of electronic device you didn’t even end up using. It’s really not until the plane has been taxied out and churns to a start on its own accord that you begin to think. Hit with the consequences, longings and excitements of the departure home. In the air, still diagonal, you look out, holding sight of every familiar architectural landmark you can find. Terracotta roofs and that yellow I never got the name of. Desperately, you look for the bigger markers that make their way onto the usual postcards: the dome, the river, the palatial garden. Such ideal vantage point, though out of your control. A roll of the dice from the Lufthansa Gods—right window? Left? Aisle seat? Still, you look desperately. And then, the Cascine, the Arno, the trickle of bridges, the Cupola and all of Oltarno. For a moment, the whole place, from such perspective that you can block it all out with your thumb. The Munich-bound plane banks left and the city in miniature falls below the oval window and is replaced with direct, blinding sun.

Since winning the Turner Prize in 2000 for his 1990s oeuvre of portraits and snapshots, German-born photographer Wolfgang Tillmans has increasingly gravitated towards the abstract and material-specific properties of his medium. Following Blushes, the Freischwimmer series and the monochromatic Silver series, his most recent abstract works--of which the creased and folded Lighter series is perhaps the most significant--treat the photograph, and especially photographic paper itself, no longer as a reproductive medium, but as a material object. In Tillmans' "paper drop" photographs, the paper's physical folds and curves are photographed to produce geometric, tactile compositions. Other works oscillate more elusively between photograph and object, always thriving in the interplay. "For me, the abstract picture is already objective because it's a concrete object and represents itself," Tillmans observes; "the paper on which the picture is printed is for me an object, there is no separating the picture from that which carries it. That's why I like to show photographs sometimes framed and sometimes not, just taped to the wall." These most recent works are gathered for the first time in this book. Lighteralso includes an extensive section of installation views--taken by Tillmans himself--that offers the reader a direct experience of the artist's visual cosmos as presented in recent exhibitions, including his last retrospective, which was seen at various major venues in the United States.

“Illustrated People” is the translation into book form of a performance by Thomas Mailaender. He applied to the skin of models 23 original negatives selected from the Archive of Modern Conflict’s collection before projecting a powerful UV lamp over them, thus revealing a fleeting image on the skin’s surface. Maileander then photographed each of his models before the sun made the image disappear. The book comprises the resulting shots combined with a series of photographic documents found in AMC’s collection.

Photography exists by the virtue of light, but the landscapes in Awoiska van der Molen’s photographs loom out of the darkness. Her monochrome photographic works arise out of a desire to penetrate deeply into the core of the isolated world in which she photographs. Van der Molen is known for her monochrome landscapes. She stands out as someone who remains rooted in the riches of analogue photography and printing. She plays out these roots in an extreme manner by creating monumental pieces that combine intentionality in choice of subject and photographic craftsmanship.

In 1966, German artist Gerhard Richter (born 1932) embarked on a series of paintings: uniform grids of colored rectangles or squares in a chart configuration against a white background, inspired by industrially produced paint chips. With the exception of only one other painting, this marked the artist's first use of color and a turning point in his career.
This comprehensive catalogue is the first publication dedicated to the original Colour Charts, both those created in 1966 and those made in the '70s after a five-year hiatus. Featuring new essays by Dietmar Elger, head of the Gerhard Richter Archive; Hubertus Butin, curator and author of several key texts on Richter; and Jaleh Mansoor, professor at the University of British Columbia, whose research concentrates on modern abstraction and its socioeconomic implications, this is a handsome tribute to one of Richter's most groundbreaking bodies of work.

Acclaimed for his black-and-white photographs of 1960s youth culture in Bamako, Mali, Malick Sidibé (born 1936) is today the African continent's best-known photographer. Sidibé was recently awarded the Venice Biennale Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement (2007)--the first time this award was presented to a photographer--and the Infinity Award for Lifetime Achievement (2008), in recognition of his contribution to documentary photography and the historical record. Malick Sidibé: La Vie en Rose provides a survey of this work, focusing primarily on Sidibé's images of Mali's buzzing youth culture and family life in Bamako in the 1960s and 70s. Laura Serani's foreword contextualizes Sidibé's work in a wider survey of African photography; the book also includes an interview with the photographer by Laura Incardona and an appendix with Sidibé's famous "chemises" (photographic dossiers), which documents his working methods.

How did the Japanese see themselves from 1931 to 1972? Even more importantly, how did the Japanese
want the rest of the world to see them during those four pivotal decades? This controversial, unprecedented
book, selected from a massive private collection of magazines and newspapers, takes an in-depth look
at the information, news, photos and advertisements used in Japanese propaganda books, illustrating
the radical sociopolitical evolution of the nation and culture throughout that period of the 20th century.
Propaganda is defined here as publications promoting political, military and cultural ideas, ranging
from national magazines such as Nippon and Front (with a feature on Japan s crack airborne paratroop
units ) to corporate documents that include a beautifully designed brochure on the facilities for the 1964
Tokyo Olympic Games. The Japanese have been notably slow to acknowledge the excesses and atrocities
of the militaristic regime that led the nation into World War II; this elegantly designed book combats that
resistance and opens a door to show what the government and corporate communicators were feeding to
the public at the time. It also reveals the roots of Japan s unique modern design aesthetic in the work of
some of the nation s finest graphic artists.

Iconic Japanese graphic designers and photograpers featured include Takashi Kono, Fumio Yamana,
Yusaku Kamekura, Goro Kumada, Shihachi Fujimoto and Hiromu Hara in graphic design and Ihei Kimura,
Yonosuke Natori Yoshio Watanabe, Ken Domon and Hiroshi Hamaya in photography.

During the 1960s and 70s, thousands of monuments commemorating the Second World War – called 'Spomeniks' – were built throughout the former Yugoslavia; striking monumental sculptures, with an angular geometry echoing the shapes of flowers, crystals, and macro-views of viruses or DNA. In the 1980s the Spomeniks still attracted millions of visitors from the Eastern bloc; today they are largely neglected and unknown, their symbolism lost and unwanted. Antwerp-based photographer Jan Kempenaers travelled the Balkans photographing these eerie objects, presented in this book as a powerful typological series. The beauty and mystery of the isolated, crumbling Spomeniks informs Kempenaer's enquiry into memory, found beauty, and whether former monuments can function as pure sculpture.

This unusual volume is a selection of images from the projects, books and saved references found in the hard drives, stored files and archives of T. Adler Books. The collection draws from the seemingly disparate worlds of surfing, fashion and style, fishing, music, fine art, rock climbing, travel and adventure. The photographs, paintings, ephemera, illustrations and contact sheets are arranged in pairs and sequences suggesting subtle connections and parallels. Iconic historical images, works by well-known contemporary artists and photographers, and beautiful outdoor photographs blend and share page space with found paintings, incidental vacation snapshots and NASA imagery; works by classic photographers such as Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange and Jacques Henri Lartigue share space with contemporary photographers Craig Stecyk, Ed Templeton, Tim Barber, Dewey Nicks and Thomas Campbell; a portrait of JFK seated in a sailboat eating an ice cream cone is paired with a 1905 photograph of the launch of the steamer Frank J. Hecker; formal portraits of John Muir and Duke Kahanamoku and open ocean photos (above and below the surface) by Wayne Levin and Corey Arnold are scattered throughout the volume, alongside paintings by Maynard Dixon and Robert Overby, nineteenth-century Cyanotypes by Anna Atkins and a handpainted sign by Stephen Powers. Iconic surfing photographs by Don James, Ron Church, Steve Wilkings, Leo Hetzel, Jeff Hornbaker, Art Brewer, Jim Russi, Jeff Divine and Jim Driver are mixed with dramatic climbing images from Glen Denny, Mike Graham, Allen Steck, Johannes Mair and Jeff Johnson. But it is the editor's imaginative sequencing and pairing of these photographs that provides the unique pleasure of this book. A fresh, blue-sky and water-drenched elegance carries the volume along, resulting in a melding of tone and composition, gestures and cultures, associations and connections that reinforce the individual images.

In 2001, Rinko Kawauchi launched her career with the simultaneous publication of three astonishing photobooks--Utatane, Hanabi and Hanako--firmly establishing herself as one of the most innovative newcomers to contemporary photography, not just in Japan, but across the globe. In the years that followed, she published other notable monographs, including Aila (2004), The Eyes, the Ear (2005) and Semear (2007). And now, ten years after her precipitous entry onto the international stage, Aperture has published Illuminance, the latest volume of Kawauchi's work and the first to be published outside of Japan. Kawauchi's photography has frequently been lauded for its nuanced palette and offhand compositional mastery, as well as its ability to incite wonder via careful attention to tiny gestures and the incidental details of her everyday environment. As Sean O'Hagan, writing in The Guardian in 2006, noted, "there is always some glimmer of hope and humanity, some sense of wonder at work in the rendering of the intimate and fragile." In Illuminance, Kawauchi continues her exploration of the extraordinary in the mundane, drawn to the fundamental cycles of life and the seemingly inadvertent, fractal-like organization of the natural world into formal patterns. Gorgeously produced as a clothbound volume with Japanese binding, this impressive compilation of previously unpublished images--which garnered Kawauchi a nomination for the Deutsche Börse Prize--is proof of her unique sensibility and ongoing appeal to lovers of photography.

Jason Nocito's new series of books entitled End Or: begins with End Or: Absolutely Empty to be launched February 29th and produced monthly over the period of a single calendar year. Over the duration of the project Nocito aims to create a series of books, as yet largely undefined, printed digitally at Puritan Press in New Hampshire in an edition of only 50 signed and numbered copies. Each book will be produced in an identical trim size that will serve as a document of the artist's working process. By adopting this experimental form and rigorous schedule Nocito is seeking to challenge himself to explore new and unexpected ways of refining his personal practice and evolving attitudes toward editing, sequencing and design. The first book in the series End Or: Absolutely Empty is a muse book devoted to his wife, Megan withEnd Or: ATM to follow in March, it will be a compilation of hundreds of portraits of ATM machines all over the city. At its culmination in 2017 the first ten numbered copies of each twelve volumes will be slip-cased, the rest sold individually as they become available.
Note: This is a very rare  publication for which Dashwood Books will be the exclusive distributor of the series and has consulted with Nocito and designer Camilla Venturini of Ordinary Books in its overall conception and production.  But we here at Kanimambo Books have a couple copies for the right collector.

In Transition Menu, the self-professed "ex-designer" Martí Guixé (born 1964) demonstrates how even food can be a design item. In this publication, Guixé presents his theories on food design by chronicling the fictional character, Mar López, who, over the course of her career, transitions from chef and restaurant owner to food designer. The book showcases a variety of elements of the fictional food designer including her CV, kitchen concepts and menu design, with color photographs of each of the food items on López’s menu. Guixé describes how each component transcends a conventional approach to food to become a designer item. Each dish is presented in conjunction with a short essay that describes its modern look and functionality. Transition Menu expands upon Guixé’s research on food design and includes his personal theories, thoughts and notes regarding the subject, by which he seeks to challenge and reappraise the parameters of conventional culinary habits.

Black Sun By Shezad Dawood
63 USD
Black Sun is a term with multiple meanings,  it represents the eclipse of the day, but is also a symbol of esoteric or occult significance used in various belief systems. The book is formed of a central text written by Dawood (running from front to back) which is punctuated by numerous guest contributions.
The multiple notions embedded within the black sun—relating to eclipse, transfiguration and alchemy—are explored in this beautifully conceived artist book by Shezad Dawood. Black Sun, the title of the British artist’s third book, is a term with myriad meanings; it represents the darkening of daylight, but is also a symbol of esoteric, mystical or occult significance used in various belief systems. Accompanying a traveling exhibition conceived of and curated by the artist, the catalog’s extensive essays examine structures that, much like the black sun itself, deconstruct our everyday modes of seeing. A cumulative set of esoteric symbols announce the start of each new phase of the narrative, a palette of typefaces drawn by Eric Gill provide the voices and a classic Jan Tschishold grid proportioned near the golden ratio holds the content together. The book features texts by Shezad Dawood, Tom Trevor, Megha Ralapati, Gerrie van Noord, Kodwo Eshun and Camilla Palestra; and works by artists including Ayisha Abraham, Desire Machine Collective, The Otolith Group, Tino Sehgal and Wolfgang Tillmans.

Thomas Raat is a conceptual artist. His book an inquiry into meaning and truth… and more investigates modernist book covers, specifically those originating from from 1940 to 1960. He stripped all texts and logos from his research subject's covers, creating large wooden oil painted panels from their remaining forms. The accompanying essay by John C. Welchman unravels how Raat’s work straddles the boundaries between abstract painting and visual construction. Titles of Raat's original literary and visual research return as picture titles within, expanding upon Bertrand Russel's 1940 publication covering philosophical meaning and truth. Employing typefaces native to 1940-1960, a time period defined by its outpouring of faces, it is set in grotesque bold. Hidden within its Japanese folded pages are 'word clouds'; arrangements of frequently occurring words from Russel's 1940 publication, which, when unfolded, reveal hidden poetry.

The photographs in 'Fish-Work: The Bering Sea' capture moments from Arnold's grueling retreats as a crew member aboard a fishing boat to the Bering Sea. With scenes of boat life so vivid that some shots can induce fear or seasickness, the artist's perspective also reveals the tender soulfulness of a fisherman's extended life at sea. His skillful compositions depict the simultaneous bravery, toil, humor and gumption that 'fish-work' demands. Yet the series also illuminates the aesthetic sublimity that can only be experienced, ultimately, by those willing to risk their lives where the sea breaks its back. Having survived several seasons afloat these icy and unforgiving waters, we are lucky that Arnold has taken time to document his artistic impressions of this rare lifestyle and extended us a vicarious glimpse. Corey Arnold's work has been exhibited worldwide. Recent publications featuring Arnold's work include the Juxtapoz Photo Book, Esquire, The Sunday Telegraph, Rolling Stone, Outside, The Paris Review, and PDN's 30.

Stan Douglas: The Secret Agent surveys three recent works by Stan Douglas (born 1960), all dealing with the politics and culture of the turbulent 1970s. The video installation The Secret Agent, which lends this monograph its title, transposes Joseph Conrad’s 1907 novel to Lisbon during the upheaval following the Carnation Revolution of 1974. Disco Angola compares two roughly simultaneous moments—the hedonistic glamour of New York nightlife in the ’70s and the Angolan Civil War—in a series of eight staged historical photographs set in New York and Angola. The third work, Luanda-Kinshasa, is a six-hour jazz film set in 1974, constructed around 11 songs recorded at the legendary 30th Street Studio where the likes of Miles Davis and Glenn Gould worked. Stan Douglas: The Secret Agent includes original scripts, film stills, production shots and extensive archival material to illustrate these crucial works from Douglas’ oeuvre.

Not long ago, photographer and bookseller Melissa Catanese was sorting through the vernacular photography collection of Peter J. Cohen, helping to organize and edit this massive curated archive (a trove of 20,000+ prints) into a series of single-theme catalogues. Along the way, she pursued an alternate reading of the collection, drifting away from simple typology into something more personal, intuitive, and openly poetic. The result — her magical artist book, Dive Dark Dream Slow — is rooted in the mystery and delight of the 'found' image and the 'snapshot' aesthetic, but pushes beneath the nostalgic surface of these pictures, re-casting them as luminous transmissions of anticipation, fear, and desire. Like an album of pop songs about a girl (or a civilization) hovering on the verge of transformation, the book cycles through overlapping themes and counter-themes—moon/ocean; violence/tenderness; innocence/experience; masks/nakedness—that sparkle with psychic longing and apocalyptic comedy.

Melissa Catanese lives in Western Pennsylvania. Her photographs are in the permanent collection of the Museum of Contemporary Photography (Chicago). She is the founder of Spaces Corners, an artist-run bookshop and project space located in Pittsburgh, PA.

Berlin-based photographer Satoshi Fujiwara's Code Unknown series takes its cue from the film of the same title directed by Michael Haneke, whom Fujiwara admires. In this series, Fujiwara surreptitiously photographed subway passengers and limited the “codes” for reading the resulting images by framing and digitally processing them and making the subjects' identities nearly illegible. Fujiwara’s bold series is also an attempt to resolve the contemporary photographic problem of “portrait rights.”

Fossil Fuels By Lloyd Stubber

Not unlike the Silverstone Classic or the Historic Grand Prix of Monaco, the Phillip Island Classic in Victoria represents Australia’s premier racing festival for historic cars. Each autumn, racing and motoring enthusiasts travel from around Australia to the Phillip Island Circuit, which is perched on the southern coastline of the small landmass that gives the track its name, around two hours southeast from Melbourne by car. Historic vehicles – ranging from sedans and sports cars to open-wheelers – compete across several categories, and while competition is enthusiastic, the event is hinged on the adage that ‘the cars are the stars’ rather than the drivers.

Young Melbourne-based photographer Lloyd Stubber has been accompanying his father Ray, uncle Paul and sister Marlo to Phillip Island to document the race, its enthusiasts and his family’s place in it over the last three years. Fossil Fuels serves as a repository for these images. Shot between 2013 and 2015, the photographs that populate Stubber’s fourth publication not only speak of the action and aesthetics of old-school racing – the blazing paint jobs, brash slogans and exacting attention to detail – but of the various subcultures and family histories that inhabit it.

Toute arme forgée contre moi sera sans effet by Colin Delfosse.
Kinshasa is a stormy and turbulent city. Crowded bars, small boutiques and crappy hostels surround the main road to the city centre. Hundreds of vehicles pile up in a huge traffic jam where pedestrians, cyclist and bikers wriggle into. The sweat and dust stick to your skin. Noise is everywhere: the humming noise of engines mixed with zouk music played by old radio speakers. The Congolese roar is astonishing. Voodoo wrestling is probably the most striking expression of this daily madness.
I encountered this thrilling spectacle by accident when I was shooting a project about mining in the province of Katanga. In the former flourishing colonial town of Kolwezi, a car passed by with a wrestler standing on top. On the banger roof, a half naked face-painted man, was dancing to a bellowing orchestra. A group of street kids was following the motorcade in a dust cloud. I thought this subject would reveal a fun and positive side to a country hurt by war and poverty. The wrestling matches are a far cry from the horror, and provide escapist excitement for people living in the poorer neighbourhoods of the big cities, predominately in Kinshasa.
Back in the Congolese capital few months later, it didn’t take me long to find those athletes again. If voodoo wrestling is completely unknown in the rest of the world, it’s a very popular spectator pastime in DRC. Most people remember of TV shows where Edingwe, a terrifying hero of the 90s, disembodied his opponents and chewed on their insides.

In the dark and muddy streets of Matete district, the atmosphere was warm and full of music. The boxing ring was trembled by the collision between the fighters. But what struck me more than anything was the theatrical performance. Beyond the fetish and other magic objects, the Congolese wrestlers were fantastic actors. Authentic showmen, doing magic dance and physical exploit to hold the public spellbound. This urban theatre circled by a rope borrows from traditional dance as much as the pantomime histrionics of American wrestling, an amalgam of two disciplines that seem to come from opposite spectrums to create a new one: Voodoo Wrestling.

Shukyu is a fresh Japanese magazine focused on the intricacies of  Futebol (aka soccer) culture and design. As with most other things made in Japan, its made with the highest scrutiny and detail with a effortless nod to minimal design. 

Issue one is titled the 'Roots Issue'. All text is in Japanese, but the greatest thing about both 'The Beautiful Game'  and "Timeless Design' is that it operates on a higher universal language where things just work or they don't, no in-betweens.

Incredibly clean photographs by Nao Tsuda, Hideki Makiguchi and Jurgen Teller (amongst others) make it a visual feast. An exploration into classic Japanese football Journals delves into the roots  of japanese soccer culture. Explorations of football kits and ball designs, the meaning of the sport in the art world (wooden ball sculpture anyone?) and the social den graphics of the people involved (portraits and investigations into Brazilian football fans and employees) will have you re-think of the game's undeniable significance miles away from corruption scandals. 

This is an important game beyond money and this publication regards it as such. 

This first  issue will surely become a collectors item.

“If looking at photographs is a pleasurable activity, it is pleasurable in a complex, transformative, frequently unsettling sense. It is not pleasure unalloyed, for no profound pleasure is pure... Like many truly enriching pleasures... photography has its dark, troubling, even dangerous aspects.” —Gerry Badger
The Pleasures of Good Photographs is an intellectual and aesthetic excursion led by Gerry Badger, one of the field's eminent critics and popular writers and the author of more than a dozen books including both volumes of The Photobook: A History. In this new volume of essays, Badger offers insight into some of his favorite images, artists and themes, drawing upon nearly three decades of experience writing and thinking about photography. With deep discernment and a readable blend of scholarly finesse and wit, Badger elucidates works by dozens of photographers, from Dorothea Lange and Eugène Atget to Martin Parr, Luc Delahaye, Susan Lipper and Paul Graham. Among the broader topics discussed are the photobook, where Badger believes “photography sings its loudest and most complex song,” and Photoshop's role in art-making. An interlude at the heart of the book pairs the author's evocative meditations with nearly a dozen particular images. Alongside some of Badger's classics, The Pleasures of Good Photographs showcases primarily new essays, making it an important addition to the canon of photographic writing.

Ukiyo-e of the late Edo to Meiji periods conveys the sense that people in Japan at the time held a deep interest in photography. Likewise, photography from this pivotal period of cultural change is clearly influenced by ukiyo-e and early modern painting traditions. From both visual art and photography emerged fascinating works that boldly intertwined ideas and traditions to reach beyond their respective frameworks, engendering new forms of visual expression. This superbly investigated and illustrated publication illuminates these facets of Japan’s cultural modernisation, which arose from the encounter of West and East through prints, paintings, photographs, and more.

Nowhere in the world have architects built homes as small as in Japan, and nowhere have they done so with such ingenuity and success. How to Make a Japanese House presents 21 lessons in how to design a single-family home from three decades of architectural practice. From the Western perspective, in which more space is better space, small interiors may once have seemed undesirable, but Japanese architects have long excelled at overcoming the limitations of building in densely populated areas and creating brilliant effects of spaciousness with minimal square footage. As urban areas across the world grow only more dense in population, a knack for the economic handling and design of domestic space has clearly established itself as a key virtue of contemporary architectural practice. Through a rich array of research, interviews, drawings and photographs, How to Make a Japanese House demonstrates that Japanese homes present a radically different way of thinking about architecture, and provide inspiration for dwelling on a smaller scale.

This is beautiful compact reproduction of the lost and forgotten  New York Transit Authority Graphic Standards manual, was  originally masterfully designed by Massimo and Lella Vignelli.
Very few copies existed in modern times but when Jesse Reed and Hamish Smyth (of Pentagram)  found a copy in the basement of the Pentagram offices as young designers, they became enamored and realized this was something the world needed to see. They set about a Kickstarter campaign and successfully made a modern canvas hardcover version (the original Kickstarter copy was larger at 13"x13"), this copy being sold here is also a hardcover at a more portable compact 10"x10". 

The Vignelli's painstaking work of organizing the mess that was the New York Metro's maps and graphic systems in the 1960's into a uniform , clear and beautiful design that could be understood by the masses is  a rare of example of design perfectly executed. 
This book is for the lack of better words , a forever book. One that will be passed down and forever referenced by designers. This book is certainly a necessity for any graphic designer, craftsman or architect.

Billy Monk worked as a bouncer in the notorious Catacombs club in the dock area of Cape Town during the 1960s. He captures the raw energy of the club, its decadence and tragedy, its humanity and joy.

Billy Monk later moved to the West Coast and lived in Port Nolloth periodically until his death in 1982. His estate is represented by The Stevenson Gallery in Cape Town and Johannesburg, South Africa.

The internationally acclaimed photographer David Goldblatt notes: "Monk's non-judgmental, even cool-eyed awareness of the photographic possibilities of the bizarre pervades the work, and yet this awareness is never denigratingly exploitative. There is a strong empathetic spirit throughout."

About two decades ago, Hendrik Kerstens decided to fully and exclusively devote himself to photography. Paula, his daughter, quickly became his favourite subject. Kerstens photographed her almost obsessively, recording her every day, as if trying to capture every moment of life for eternity. His portraits, remarkably following the Dutch art historical tradition, show her strength, but also her vulnerability. The styling, framing and lighting reveal his fascination with the 17th-century Dutch masters, and the astute observer will immediately recognise the manner of Vermeer skilfully translated in graceful, delicate plays of light. In all, 60 portraits of Paula are published in this volume.

This picture book is a small window onto a large world. It shows everyday life in the most varied corners of the African continent, one that does not exist in the coverage provided by Western media. There is nothing spectacular or sensational about this everyday life, but it is always there. It is colorful and also banal, sometimes even contradictory, but it is always precious and genuine. In I love to dress like I am coming from somewhere and I have a place to go, Swiss photographer Flurina Rothenberger shows us a reality far from the usual stereotypes and clichés. Local and immediate, this project was made over the last ten years during the course of both personal and professional trips. Having grown up in West Africa, the artist is well aware of the ambiguities, mores, and specters of this vast continent and its 54 countries. In her sober portrayals of everyday life, whether she is quoting writers, activists, musicians, or economists, she provides an urgently needed contribution to how we view Africa–but not explicitly, and instead subtly. Because the African continent is itself subtle, hard to penetrate, and decidedly complex. Flurina Rothenberger’s first artist’s book, published in 2004 by Edition Patrick Frey, devotes itself to this complexity. I don’t know where I’m going but I’m on the way shows us the everyday life of the West African community in Zurich. It is an everyday life defined by having been torn asunder in various ways, one which rails against the many prejudices. Whether close to home or far away, Flurina Rothenberger dismantles stereotypes by documenting the actual realities she witnesses.

This is a book of pictures of modernist New Zealand homes.

These houses aren't new, they’re old and lived in. They can be a little dusty, slightly worn around the edges and all have what antique dealers like to call “patina”. But they’re perfect in the minds of the people who live in them because of what they represent, which when designed, was a better way of living.

The idea for the project wasn’t so much to document the houses in purely architectural terms, but to give an idea of the way these houses were and are lived in, as well as showing details of the designs and the materials used in their construction. The use of native timbers throughout these houses has given a unique feel to the interiors. In the Martin house, for example, John Scott used rimu for cupboard doors and matai, a wood which darkens with age, for the handles.

I also wanted to look at the way these houses fitted into their surroundings. All of the Wellington homes are connected to native bush, attracting tuis, fantails and bellbirds amongst other native birds. The owners of the Einhorn house, which backs onto the Karori bird sanctuary, sometimes see rare hihi feeding in their garden. The front of the Manning house is surrounded by an enormous pohutakawa tree which, from inside the house filters views out towards Auckland’s harbour bridge.

The title of the book comes from a phrase in an email from Bruce Martin giving directions to his home at Bridge Pā. Filled with a lifetime’s of pottery both from Bruce and Estelle’s work, together with gifts from potter friends, the Martin’s home highlights the particular mix of craftsmanship and design which is reminiscent of all the homes shown in this book.

Mary Gaudin is a New Zealand photographer living in Montpellier, France.

Initially curated for the 55th Venice Biennale and comprising images from Dutch photographer Viviane Sassen’s earlier publications Flamboya (2008) and Parasomnia (2011), in addition to previously unpublished photographs, this series can be seen as offering a point of departure from which to explore Sassen’s aesthetic and imaginative world, revealing key elements of her visual vocabulary, just as the title suggests. By building collections of related images, combining them in a certain way, Sassen explores narratives that go beyond the isolated image. The men, women, and children appearing in her photos, seemingly casually posed, are more compositions than individuals.

Walter Pfeiffer’s Scrapbooks from 1969 to 1982 are a very unique Wunderkammer. Pfeiffer’s polaroids and photographs alternate with miscellaneous objects – newspaper clippings, postcards, packaging, tickets – and brief punning notes. Pfeiffer assembles all of this into a large collage full of surprising references and comparisons that is both a visual diary and creative foundation of his artistic work. In his Scrapbooks, Pfeiffer’s keen view of Eros, Zeitgeist and popular culture, his disrespectful humor as well as his appreciation for the poetry in the mundane and banal, are sharply revealed. They offer a view into Pfeiffer’s meandering and playful universe and are a contemporary document that captures the Zeitgeist of the 1970s and 1980s with ephemeral elegance.

Japanese photographer Masao Yamamoto (born 1957) trained as an oil painter before discovering that photography was the ideal medium for the theme that most interested him-the ability of the image to evoke memories. Small Things in Silence surveys the 20-year career of one of Japan's most important photographers. Yamamoto's portraits, landscapes and still lifes are made into small, delicate prints, which the photographer frequently overpaints, dyes or steeps in tea. Edited and sequenced by Yamamoto himself, this volume includes images from each of the photographer's major projects-Box of Ku, Nakazora, Kawa and Shizuka-as well as installation shots of some of Yamamoto's original photographic installations. In the words of Yamamoto himself: "I try to capture moments that no one sees and make a photo from them. When I seen them in print, a new story begins."

Imaginary Club by Oliver Sieber

For many years Oliver Sieber has been asking young people to appear before his camera, people, whose clothing is associated with a specific subculture, be it punk, skin, Teddy boy, rockabilly, goth, etc. Many are extravagantly styled, yet while sometimes the look is an elaborate act, other times an individual figure’s appearance strikes the artist’s interest. Despite the narrow frame and the precision of the photographic depiction, the form of Sieber’s portraits lends the models a certain freedom. Seemingly lost in their thoughts, staring into the distance, they exude an autonomy, a presence within themselves at the moment when the image is made.

Retinal Shift investigates the practice and mechanics of looking, in relation to the history of Grahamstown, the history of photographic devices and Subotzky's own history as an artist. The works draw on archival portraits from the last century, found surveillance footage, as well as Subotzky's own photographs from various series that he recontextualizes. The opening work in the book is a self-portrait that Subotzky made with the assistance of an optometrist. High-resolution images of his left and right retinas sit side by side. Says Subotzky: "I was fascinated by this encounter. At the moment that my retinas, parts of my essential organs of seeing, were photographed, I was blinded by the apparatus that made the images."

Photographs Not Taken is a collection of photographers’ essays about failed attempts to make a picture. Editor Will Steacy asked each photographer to abandon the conventional tools needed to make a photograph--camera, lens, film--and instead make a photograph using words, to capture the image (and its attendant memories) that never made it through the lens. In each essay, the photograph has been stripped down to its barest and most primitive form: the idea behind it. This collection provides a unique and original interpretation of the experience of photographing, and allows the reader into a world rarely seen: the image making process itself. Photographs Not Taken features contributions by: Peter Van Agtmael, Dave Anderson, Timothy Archibald, Roger Ballen, Thomas Bangsted, Juliana Beasley, Nina Berman, Elinor Carucci, Kelli Connell, Paul D’Amato, Tim Davis, KayLynn Deveney, Doug Dubois, Rian Dundon, Amy Elkins, Jim Goldberg, Emmet Gowin, Gregory Halpern, Tim Hetherington, Todd Hido, Rob Hornstra, Eirik Johnson, Chris Jordan, Nadav Kander, Ed Kashi, Misty Keasler, Lisa Kereszi, Erika Larsen, Shane Lavalette, Deana Lawson, Joshua Lutz, David Maisel, Mary Ellen Mark, Laura McPhee, Michael Meads, Andrew Moore, Richard Mosse, Zwelethu Mthethwa, Laurel Nakadate, Ed Panar, Christian Patterson, Andrew Phelps, Sylvia Plachy, Mark Power, Peter Riesett, Simon Roberts, Joseph Rodriguez, Stefan Ruiz, Matt Salacuse, Alessandra Sanguinetti, Aaron Schuman, Jamel Shabazz, Alec Soth, Amy Stein, and others.

MARK BORTHWICK is among the generation of photographers who in the '90s broke through the conventions of fashion photography. Integrating elements of architecture and design, he knows how to turn a static photo into a performance. His work is about the movement of the model, and the serendipity of accidental clutter is as important to his images as the garments.

Michael Wolfs adopted home of Hong Kong is rife with subject matter. Within this bustling metropolis, there is always more for the German photographer to discover, especially in the often overlooked details at or just above eye level. In this photo series, Wolf carefully filters out the urban noise to focus on those things left behind whether intentionally or not. Dozens of mops and gloves positioned to dry form a strange parade, while colourful articles of clothing, perhaps blown off balconies and clotheslines, dangle from wires, pipes and neon signs, stranded in an in-between space, part of the city yet removed from it. Brilliantly framed, the images represent frozen moments and histories.

Sixteen images from the period 2000-2012 were selected for this book by Elspeth Diederix and designer Katja van Stiphout, each of which is preceded by an accumulation of studies from Diederix's huge archive, forming a collection of images that belong to the same cloud of works. Each photographic study can be seen as a forerunner of the sixteen images, which Diederix had previously qualified as final. In addition, a number of images which had not yet undergone the stage of research and study were specially finalized for this publication.
