Publisher's Description

From the passion of young love to the heartbreak of former lovers, from the tenderness of parents with their children to the timeless bond of old married couples, the 150 color and black and white images in this album come from all over the world, and span the history of photography. Here are photos from Henri Cartier-Bresson, Elliott Erwitt, William Henry Fox Talbot, Julia Margaret Cameron, Brassaï, Weegee, Mary Ellen Mark, and William Eggleston, as well as little-known photographers who have caught revealing moments in out-of-the-way places and hidden rooms.
"Here love's iconography is expanded to include a heart-shaped balloon floating over the city of Jaipur and three babies crawling in a row across colorful, plaid blankets.... In some of the book's most surprising images, lovers pull the viewer's attention into the background of a picture that otherwise calls one's attention to discord or isolation."—Publishers Weekly

Publisher's Description

From the end of the Pacific War in 1945 to the Tokyo Olympic Games in 1964, Japan underwent an extraordinary transformation; from a defeated and devastated empire, mired in ancient martial traditions, it embraced modernization and mass production to become a rising economic power. This moment of radical change generated an enormous creative energy, which also influenced the evolution of Japanese photography from social realism to a subjective and increasingly personal style. This album presents 150 exemplary black and white images from leading photojournalists and street photographers, capturing Japan's changing view of itself in that remarkable time.

Picture of Both Sides of Sunset: Photographing Los Angeles

Overseas deliveries  Please note that, as this is a heavy item, overseas postage will be charged at twice our standard rates.

Publisher's Description

Los Angeles is a city of dualities—sunshine and noir, coastline beaches and urban grit, natural beauty and suburban sprawl, the obvious and the hidden. Both Sides of Sunset: Photographing Los Angeles reveals these dualities and more, in images captured by master photographers such as Bruce Davidson, Lee Friedlander, Daido Moriyama, Julius Shulman and Garry Winogrand, as well as many younger artists, among them Matthew Brandt, Katy Grannan, Alex Israel, Lise Sarfati and Ed Templeton, just to name a few. Taken together, these individual views by more than 130 artists form a collective vision of a place where myth and reality are often indistinguishable. Spinning off the highly acclaimed Looking at Los Angeles (Metropolis Books, 2005), Both Sides of Sunset presents an updated and equally unromantic vision of this beloved and scorned metropolis. In the years since the first book was published, the artistic landscape of Los Angeles has flourished and evolved. The extraordinary Getty Museum project Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945–1980 focused global attention on the city's artistic heritage, and this interest has only continued to grow. Both Sides of Sunset showcases many of the artists featured in the original book—such as Lewis Baltz, Catherine Opie, Stephen Shore and James Welling—but also incorporates new images that portray a city that is at once unhinged and driven by irrepressible exuberance. Proceeds from the sale of the book will benefit Inner-City Arts—an oasis of learning, achievement and creativity in the heart of Los Angeles' Skid Row that brings arts education to elementary, middle and high school students.

Contributing photographers and artists are Robert Adams, Iwan Baan, John Baldessari, Lewis Baltz, Sara Jane Boyers, Tim Bradley, Matthew Brandt, Charles Brittin, Mauren Brodbeck, Michael Butler, Craig Carlson, Oscar Castillo, Sam Comen, Kevin Cooley, Zoe Crosher, Bruce Davidson, Raymond Depardon, Tomas T.

Overseas deliveries  Please note that, as this is a heavy item, overseas postage will be charged at twice our standard rates.

Publisher's Description

Gorgeous and wide-ranging, this collection of works by established and up-and-coming photographers showcases new developments in erotic photography.

The invention of photography gave artists a new means of expression—and a new way of depicting the human body. This elegant, compelling collection of images from new and established photographers demonstrates how technology has altered the genre—not only in terms of technique, but also composition, theme, and content. This incredibly diverse collection features the works of more than 30 artists from around the world, including Evan Baden’s explorations of the ways youth culture views sex, intimacy, and privacy; Noritoshi Hirakawa’s erotic and intimate portraits, which challenge mainstream conceptions of sexuality and heterosexual desire; David Bellemere’s dreamlike works, which are inspired by 1970s aesthetics, nature, light and the female body shape; and Ana Kraš’s surreal photographs that seem like they were taken coincidentally. At once cutting-edge and tasteful, this compelling volume presents a wide range of erotic photography.

Picture of Revelations

Publisher's Description

Published alongside a major exhibition, Revelations explores a radical expansion of the visual field brought about by early scientific photography, and the ways this informed and inspired photography's applications within modern and contemporary art.

Early scientific imagery such as X-Ray, photomicrography and experimental high-speed photography exposed and surpassed the limits of human vision. In doing so, it revealed important formal possibilities to artists, and spoke to them in clear and articulate terms about man’s changing relationship to science and technology. Drawing on the National Collections held in Bradford and London, and further international collections, a selection of photographs, book spreads and other documents demonstrate new modes of representation established by early scientific photography and their profound impact on the histories of photographic art.

Overseas deliveries  Please note that, as this is a heavy item, overseas postage will be charged at twice our standard rates.

Publisher's Description

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 deluxe, lavishly produced volume is based on a col- lection 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 pro- paganda 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.

Picture of Landscape in my Mind: Landscape photography today. Hamish Fulton to Andreas Gursky

Overseas deliveries  Please note that, as this is a heavy item, overseas postage will be charged at twice our standard rates.

Publisher's description

Landscape in my Mind is a pictorial journey through the landscapes of current art photography. The exhibition covers the whole gamut of current positions in international landscape photography from Hamish Fulton to Andreas Gursky. Always a network of connections between man and nature landscape presents itself as a mental projection level of the perception of our surroundings – both close and distant.

The works of art function as 'distorted' mirrors of perceived reality; they are not pure documentations produced at the click of a camera but hybrid tableaus between fiction and abstraction, metaphors of the view of the world and beyond. Typically, the photographs are 'pictures painted with the camera' in large format, which exude the self-confidence of New Photography. Blurring effects and compositional qualities enhance the tableau’s painterly and pictorial value. Consequently, artists such as Elger Esser or Jörg Sasse, for example, see themselves more as 'picture composers' rather than photographers. Rather than the objective perception of landscape as found in say Thomas Struth, these images elicit emotions in the observer, including feelings of being overwhelmed, melancholy, disquiet and dread.

Some of the artists in the exhibition present landscape photography as an experience and adventure, and resort to manipulative means in doing so. 'Global landscapes' produced as digital collages and enriched using found footage from the Web. Others destroy the illusion as when Thomas Ruff reveals images in pixeled resolution to be nothing more than digital information. Moreover, we have never set eyes on Mars. Roland Barthes’ pronouncement on photography that 'this is how it was' is annulled given the full spectrum of manipulation and fiction. Landscape photography as a painterly construction of reality.

Picture of Eyes Wide Open: 100 Years of Leica

Overseas deliveries  Please note that, as this is an exceptionally heavy item, overseas postage will be charged at three times our standard rates.

Publisher's Description

A note in a workshop log proves that at the latest in March 1914, Oskar Barnack put the finishing touches on the first working model of a compact camera for 35 mm standard cinema film. He had not merely invented a new camera – the Leica (= Leitz/camera), not introduced until 1925 due to the war, in fact ushered in a paradigm shift in photography. The Leica made it easier for amateurs, newcomers, and emancipated women to take pictures, but, more than that, it also enabled a whole new way of seeing things – a faster, more dynamic view of the world from new angles. Just in time to mark a milestone birthday of the legendary compact camera, and for the first time in this thematic breadth, this volume with about 1.200 images offers a wide artistic and cultural history of the Leica from the 1920s to the present day.
Essays by international authors examine topics including the technical genesis of the Leica, its influence on photojournalism, and its significance for a wide variety of avant-garde currents in art photography. Heretofore unpublished documents from the archives of the Leica Camera AG round off this multifaceted 100-year cultural chronicle.

Photographs by: 
Michael Ackerman, Jane Evelyn Atwood, Ilse Bing, Edouard Boubat, René Burri, Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Mark Cohen, Bruce Davidson, Michel Vanden Eeckhoudt, William Eggleston, Richard Fleischhut, Robert Frank, Lee Friedlander, Alberto Garcia Alix, Gianni Berengo Gardin, Ralph Gibson, Bruce Gilden, René Groebli, George Grosz, Ara Güler, Elisabeth Hase, Fred Herzog, Frank Horvat, Thomas Hoepker, Barbara Klemm, William Klein, Robert Lebeck, Saul Leiter, Ulrich Mack, Ramón Masats, Susan Meiselas, Jeff Mermelstein, Joel Meyerowitz, Will McBride, László Moholy-Nagy, Victor Palla, Alexander Rodtschenko, Paolo Roversi, Erich Salomon, Jeanloup Sieff, Klavdij Sluban, Louis Stettner, Christer Strömholm, Sabine Weiss, Kai Wiedenhöfer, Tom Wood and many others

Publisher's Description

An examination of European portraiture since the 1990s, this book shows how major changes in the continent’s political and societal realms have inspired photographers to capture a new identity—both collective and individual.

The 1990s saw a resurgence of the portrait genre of photography, especially in Europe, where the collapse of communism and the solidification of the European Union raised enormously important questions about national identity and shared historical and cultural values. This volume delves into this important development, featuring full-page reproductions of work by Rineke Dijkstra, Jurgen Teller, Thomas Ruff, Nikos Markou, Anders Petersen, Clare Strand, and others from dozens of countries around the continent. Taken as a whole, these portraits comprise a new genre—one that represented a break from postmodernist strategies and which allowed for experimentation and the exchange of ideas.

Publisher's Description

The real world is full of cameras; the virtual world is full of images. Where does all this photographic activity leave the artist-photographer? Post-Photography tries to answer that question by investigating the exciting new language of photographic image-making that is emerging in the digital age of anything-is-possible and everything-has-been-done-before.

Found imagery has become increasingly important in post-photographic practice, with the internet serving as a laboratory for a major kind of image-making experimentation. But artists also continue to create entirely original works using avant-garde techniques drawn from both the digital and analogue eras.

This book is split into five sections – Something Borrowed, Something New; Layers of Reality; All the World Is Staged; Hand and Eye; and Post-Photojournalism – which cover the key strategies adopted by 53 of the most exciting and innovative international artist-photographers of the 21st century.

Publisher's Description

By documenting the everyday workings of the city, Magnums photographers capture the essence of Parisian life. Their photographs show the city as it lives and breathesfrom fashion shows to underground jazz clubs, from the bustling metro to outdoor cafés, and from the Art Deco Fouquets hotel to the working class Goutte dOr neighborhood. Even celebrities appear as ordinary citizens encountered in their own milieufrom former President François Mitterrand to novelist Marguerite Duras, singer Edith Piaf to actress Catherine Deneuve, fashion designer Christian Dior to artist Giacometti. The citys rich history and traditions are inherent in images depicting the bravery of an unknown female resistance fighter, the exuberant joy upon the Liberation of Paris, the eroticism of burlesque dancers, or the excitement of the final lap of the Tour de France. Crusty baguettes, buttery escargot, glasses of wine, and abundant butcher cases attest to the gastronomic pleasures of the city, and all of the monumentsthe Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dameappear like cast members at curtain call. This book celebrates the myriad aspects of Paris in a volume as captivating for the lifelong Parisian as it is for the armchair traveler.
