Picture of Beach Therapy (Collector's Edition)

Publisher's description

This Collector’s Edition includes the book 'Beach Therapy' with a fabric cover conceived for this edition and this print signed and numbered by Martin Parr: 'St Ives', Cornwall, England, 2005, Pigment print, 9 x 6 inches. The photograph has been printed in 2018 in a limited edition of 90 copies plus 10 Artist Proofs.

During his long career as a photographer, Martin Parr has always photographed on beaches, particularly in the UK. He has often used the beach as a laboratory to experiment with new cameras and techniques. So far example, when he changed from black and white to medium format colour in the early 80s his first major project was about New Brighton, a run down seaside resort near Liverpool. In recent months he has started exploring the beach with the aid of a telephoto lens. This lens is rarely used in the world of art and documentary photography so it is a challenge to find new ways of using it. Often this involves incorporating the vegetation on the perimeter with the beach as a backdrop, both in and out of focus. So over his long career he has tried everything from a close up macro lens, a medium format wide angled camera and finally this latest offering with the telephoto.

Picture of Mongolia

Publisher's Description

'Mongolia' is a project which Frédéric Lagrange began in 2001 and has spanned over sixteen years, during which he took thirteen trips in all four seasons, covering vastly different regions of the country.

This book is his visual portrait of Mongolia and her people captured in detail in a genuine, human form through a compilation of landscapes and portraits. The book offers the viewer an intimate look and visual journey into a still largely unknown and intriguing place. The book is intentionally printed in large format, to maximize the impact of the smallest details and the different emotions of everyday life in the countryside and cities. The entire selection of images have been shot on negative film which offers a painterly quality with grain and with vivid colors.

As far as Lagrange is aware, this is the only body of work about Mongolia that offers such an extensive coverage of the country.

Publisher's description

The first definitive monograph of color photographs by American street photographer Vivian Maier.

Photographer Vivian Maier’s allure endures even though many details of her life continue to remain a mystery. Her story—the secretive nanny-photographer who became a pioneer photographer—has only been pieced together from the thousands of images she made and the handful of facts that have surfaced about her life. Vivian Maier: The Color Work is the largest and most highly curated published collection of Maier’s full-color photographs to date.

With a foreword by world-renowned photographer Joel Meyerowitz and text by curator Colin Westerbeck, this definitive volume sheds light on the nature of Maier’s color images, examining them within the context of her black-and-white work as well as the images of street photographers with whom she clearly had kinship, like Eugene Atget and Lee Friedlander. With more than 150 color photographs, most of which have never been published in book form, this collection of images deepens our understanding of Maier, as its immediacy demonstrates how keen she was to record and present her interpretation of the world around her.

Picture of My British Archive: The Way We Were 1968-1983 (Signed)

Publisher's description

The Way We Were 1968-1983 is a look at British society through the eyes of leading British photographer Homer Sykes – his personal view of ‘life’ as he encountered it as a young photographer setting out in the early years of his career.

This was a time when British society was going through a period of enormous change. This is reflected by Sykes as he embraces everyday life, with a gentle and seeing eye; a knife throwing striptease tent booth at The Derby in Epsom, through to a kite-flying middle class family battling against the wind and rain on Brighton promenade. The book covers poverty in the East End, rich kids and their parents at society balls, teddy boys, factory workers in the north of England and New Romantics at the Blitz Club in Covent Garden, when Boy George was just George O’Dowd and there was still an Alternative Miss World. Skinheads hang out in upstairs bars, while Catholic youths riot in the streets of Northern Ireland. He also chronicles many of the social issues of the time and the demonstrations that brought those problems to public attention: “I attempted to get behind the more obvious news image; I was looking for other moments, that gave depth and understanding to those people’s predicaments."

Homer Sykes published his first book in 1977. Since then he has published more than fifteen other books and has featured in magazines worldwide. His last book Once A Year was also published by us. Homer has exhibited widely, with his first show being held in 1971 at the ICA in London. In 2014 the prestigious Maison Robert Doisneau museum in Paris gave him a one man show, their first ever for a British photographer.

Picture of Real Life Dramas

Publisher's Description

The rediscovery of a great American photographer.

When Mary Frey’s book READING RAYMOND CARVER was released in 2017, many people rubbed their eyes in astonishment: Why don’t I know Mary Frey? What happened, that more than 30 years had to pass before these grandiose pictures are publicly shown?

It’s not exactly like that. For the black-and-white photographs taken at home and in her immediate vicinity in Massachusetts between 1979 and 1984 Mary Frey has been awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship. 1987 and 1991 her color photographs on the same subject were shown in New York at the MoMA. And then? Silence. Mary Frey has continued to photograph, she taught at several Universities, some museums and collectors have her pictures in their collections, famous photographers have been inspired by her work, but she never took care to push her own career as an artist.

But now something is happening. Mary Frey is the rediscovery of the moment, her pictures too good to be overlooked. Photographed in large format on film, technically perfect, between snapshot and enactment, intimacy and distance. Charged banalities with children, adolescents and adults, middle class, USA, 35 years ago. No reportage, a psychogram. Funny, sad, true and hyperreal.

Picture of Shomei Tomatsu

Publisher's Description

"Shomei Tomatsu is the pivotal figure of recent Japanese photography." John Szarkowski

Casting a cold eye on postwar Japan, the raw, grainy and impressionistic photography of Shomei Tomatsu practically defined Japanese photography in the second half of the 20th century, greatly influencing Daido Moriyama, Nobuyoshi Araki and Takuma Nakihara. His best-known images are his portraits of people and street scenes from the 1950s, when the country struggled to recover from World War II and US military presence was ubiquitous; his photographs of 1960s Japan; and throughout his career, his images of Okinawa, where he died in 2012. Tomatsu's most famous single photograph is probably Melted Bottle, Nagasaki, 1961, which depicts a beer bottle rendered grotesquely biomorphic by the nuclear blast that devastated Nagasaki on August 9, 1945. The American photographer and writer Leo Rubinfien described Tomatsu's Nagasaki images as "sad, haggard facts," noting that "beneath the surface there was a grief so great that any overt expression of sympathy would have been an insult."

This book, which accompanies a major retrospective at MAPFRE in Barcelona, elucidates the rich visual universe of Tomatsu, including his best-known images and previously unpublished work. It is the first comprehensive survey to be published since his death.

Picture of Trilogy

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

Publisher's Description

Trilogy, by Lu Nan draws together three series of the photographer’s work created over the course of 15 years; The Forgotten People, a haunting study of the living conditions of China’s psychiatric patients, On the Road, a document of the daily lives of Catholics in China and Four Seasons, a chronicle of the lives of rural peasants in Tibet. Collectively, the projects are part of one major work presenting three stages of inner life – suffering, purification and peace of heart. Previously only published in his native China, this is the first English language publication of the renowned photographer’s work.

In 1989, Lu Nan began work on The Forgotten People, and over the course of two years visited nearly 40 mental institutions across ten provinces and major cities, alongside individual family homes. There is a stigma surrounding mental illness in China and the result of this is a lack of trained medical professionals and a deeply inadequate healthcare system, with families often taking the responsibility for care. The photographs are often difficult to view but Lu Nan balances the harsh conditions with moments of tenderness and humanity, aiming to document those cast aside by the mainstream with a careful and honest empathy.

The second section of the book On the Road, depicts the lives of Catholic believers in China. During the Chinese Cultural Revolution (1966–76), the demonstration of religious life was forbidden in China—worshippers were arrested, imprisoned, and sometimes tortured for their devotion, Catholic homes were raided and Bibles were confiscated. This series was created between 1992 and 1996 when Lu Nan visited over one hundred churches and religious pilgrimages to document believers. The images focus on how the Catholics practice love and faith in daily life beyond the physical building of a church, and the lives of a population dedicated resolutely to their faith in the face of discrimination and hardship.

The final section of the book, Four Seasons draws upon Lu Nan’s photographs of the daily lives of Tibetan peasants whose livelihoods depend on the whims of mother nature. This series was made over the course of seven years and nine separate trips, with Lu Nan often living with farmers and their families, to capture the rural existence through harsh unforgiving winters, planting season and autumn’s harvest.

Picture of Sunday: a Portrait of 21st Century England

Publisher's Description

A 128 page photographic book documenting twelve different Sundays from a variety of backgrounds across England.

Sundays evolve as we age; our childhood memories are often held dear and as adults, we associate Sunday with the chance to relax and switch off from work and the world.

However, the last few decades have seen a huge shift away from traditional churchgoing, while consumerism and digital culture have changed the way we use our time. So what impact have these changes had on our ability to relax and be with ourselves? And how does the way we spend our leisure time reflect the nature of society in 21st century England?

This book provides the reader with the opportunity to pause and reflect on what value they place on their leisure time in an ever increasingly fast paced world.

Picture of Small World (Signed)

Publisher's description

First published in 1996 Small World is one of the most popular and most important of Martin Parr’s books. This revised and extended edition includes more than 40 new photographs as well as featuring many of Martin Parr’s most iconic images.

It is a biting, very funny satire in which Parr looks at tourism worldwide, exposing the increasingly homogenous ‘global culture’ where in the search for different cultures those same cultures are destroyed. The issues that Parr raised two decades ago when the book was first published are even more relevant today.

Whilst Parr’s larger-than-life troupe of tourists appear willing participants in an omnipresent consumer culture they are also bemused victims – at the mercy of larger social forces and locked into their insatiable craving for spectacle. Small World‘s citizens become a symbol of western society’s prosperous freedoms, declaring their power and their rights to travel, to choose and to consume.

A member of the prestiguous MAGNUM photo agency Martin Parr is one of the best known photographers in the world today. He has published innumerable books and his work has been exhibited and published worldwide

Picture of Displaced: Manzanar 1942–1945 | The Incarceration of Japanese Americans

Publisher's description


Edited by Evan Backes. Foreword by Pico Iyer. Introduction by Nancy Matsumoto.


"This sorry episode has been illuminated in books and documentaries. But I've never felt its emotional texture—the unexpected mix of dereliction and upstanding hopefulness—so vividly as in this set of photographs taken by Ansel Adams and Dorothea Lange and five others, among them an artist incarcerated at Manzanar." –Pico Iyer

In the weeks following the bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, American suspicion and distrust of its Japanese American population became widespread. The US government soon ordered all Japanese Americans (two thirds of them American citizens) living on the West Coast to report to assembly centers for eventual transfer to internment camps, openly referred to by the New York Times as "concentration camps." Within a few months of Pearl Harbor, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066; soon after, the War Relocation Authority (WRA) was established and by the end of March, the first of 10,000 Japanese evacuees arrived in Manzanar, an internment camp in the Owens Valley desert at the foot of the Sierras. Families were given one to two weeks' notice and were allowed to pack only what they could carry. Businesses were shuttered and farms and equipment were sold at bargain prices. Upon arrival at Manzanar, each person was assigned to a barrack, given a cot, blankets and a canvas bag to be filled with straw in order to create their own mattresses.

Dorothea Lange was hired by the WRA to photograph the mass evacuation; she worked into the first months of the internment until she was fired by WRA staff for her "sympathetic" approach. Many of her photographs were seized by the government and largely unseen by the public for a half century. More than a year later, Manzanar Project Director Ralph Merritt hired Ansel Adams to document life at the camp. Lange and Adams were also joined by WRA photographers Russell Lee, Clem Albers and Francis Stewart. Two Japanese internees, Toyo Miyatake and Jack Iwata, secretly photographed life within the camp with a smuggled camera.

Gathered together in this volume, these images express the dignity and determination of the Japanese Americans in the face of injustice and humiliation. Today the tragic circumstances surrounding displaced and detained people around the world only strengthen the impact of these photos taken 75 years ago.

Picture of Across the Cut

Publisher's description

Krass Clement’s new work stems from a short visit he made to Bristol in June 2016. He had been invited to speak at Photobook Bristol and also to discuss a potential future publishing project. He had not planned this book but it developed during his stay. Unlike many of his other works, he started editing and sequencing his images as soon as he returned to Denmark. The time in Bristol coincided with the run-up to the UK referendum on future membership of the European Union. The notion that Britain may leave the EU troubled Krass Clement  deeply, and no doubt it influenced his mood and perception as he was taking the photographs.

The ambiguities of being left behind, loneliness, feelings of limbo and powerlessness are present in all of Krass Clement’s books and are not place-specific, but nonetheless few show this as powerfully as his images around Bristol’s Cut.

The Cut is an artificially constructed waterway which was built in the early 19th Century to help to create a floating harbour. It is about 3 kilometers long and divides Bristol, with the traditionally more affluent part being located on the North side. Most of Krass Clement’s pictures were taken on the South side.

Picture of Past K-Ville

Publisher's description

Mark Steinmetz’s Past K-Ville continues the poetic journey that began in 15 Miles to K-Ville. This new collection of photographs dates from the mid-1990s and was made on road trips throughout the American South: Memphis, Atlanta, New Orleans, Chattanooga, and Athens, Georgia. Spray-painted rumours of romance punctuate a world comprised largely of teenagers and young couples. The work was made while Steinmetz received support from a Guggenheim Fellowship.

"I love the South for its warmth and chaos. The vegetation down here grows rampant; the light is softened by humid air. The people are for the most part friendly and they are comfortable in their bodies. They tend to be more open to being photographed by a stranger. The unexpected happens here a lot." - Mark Steinmetz

Picture of Mongrelism

Publisher's description

The Mongrel Mob of Aotearoa New Zealand is notorious for extreme violence, and they have long been regarded as the nation’s monsters. In layers of apparent contradictions, their icon is the British bulldog wearing a Nazi helmet, while their members are largely indigenous Maori. The Mongrel Mob’s symbols arose as both a goading response to a history of colonial subjugation of Maori, and a proclamation of war against the (white) state.

‘Mongrelism’ offers a communion with this impenetrable fraternity. Monumental portraits illustrate Mob members’ assertion of membership and pride in their identity. Artefact studies and brutal first person narratives are drawn from the Mob corpus, mirroring the landscapes that bare the brooding environments where Mob members live. ‘Mongrelism’ examines how the gang brands itself to itself to uphold its hierarchy and history, and find core values usually lauded by society: perseverance, resilience, and loyalty.

The publication takes the form of a gang handbook. The order and grouping of images is the result of consultation with members and hews to their geographic, familial and hierarchical relationships. An unedited Mob voice dominates the written section.

Rotman’s images have become a part of Mob history and their visual mythology. Ongoing consultation and engagement has been integral.

Rotman is a fourth generation white New Zealander, his forebears were among the first to settle in the region that became the epicentre of the Mob genesis. The process of colonisation and the atomisation of indigenous communities can be argued to have resulted in the Mongrel Mob. In Mongrelism, as in the history of the nation, the narratives intertwine.

‘Mongrelism’ is the recipient of the Prix du Livre Images Vevey 2017/2018

Publisher's Description

Initially inspired by Swedish masters such as Christer Strömholm, as well as Stephen Shore and William Eggleston, Lars Tunbjörk (1956–2015) was one of the great and truly original European photographers. Tunbjörk's international breakthrough came in 1993 with the photobook Country beside Itself. Celebrated by Martin Parr and Gerry Badger as "an acute observer of modern life," Tunbjörk's color images amplified the mundane and the absurd in a quietly surreal fashion using the hard light of flash photography, which became his signature style and influenced a subsequent generation of photographers. His best-known photobook series include Office (2001), which depicts office workers in bizarre chance positions, and Home (2003), in which everyday items such as flowers or armchairs are made to reveal a quiet absurdity in Swedish suburbia. With more than 250 images, this volume constitutes the most substantial overview of his work.

Picture of Women's Market

Publisher's Description

Between 1978 and 1999 British photographer Tom Wood spent his Saturday mornings at Great Homer Street Market, a retail market, just far enough outside the centre of Liverpool for it to have it’s own unique, more relaxed identity. Complete with his Leica and out of date film, Wood made vibrant and real photographs of the shoppers as they hunted for bargains and met up with friends and family.

“I was first introduced to Great Homer Street market in 1975, by a girlfriend with family in Dingle, Liverpool. At that time, I bought two double breasted Worsted wool three piece suits and a three buttoned pin stripe suit with turn ups, for a total of four pounds. I thought, “what a great market!” It was vast then down both sides of the street, but by the time I began to photograph the second-hand clothes had all but disappeared. Yet the market was still crowded with the same mothers and daughters who for generations had frequented “Greatie” - Tom Wood
