Picture of America in a Trance

Publisher’s Description

Niko J. Kallianiotis's first monograph, America in a Trance dives into the heart and soul of the Pennsylvania industrial regions, a place where small town values still exist and sustainable small businesses once thrived under the sheltered wings of American Industry. It was here, to the cradle of American industrialism that immigrants from tattered European countries once crossed the Atlantic for a better future. Some, like Kallianiotis, still do.

Born and raised in Greece but now a proud Northeastern Pennsylvanian, Kallianiotis has called this place home for roughly twenty years. Those decades have taught him how beliefs from both sides of the fence in the current political climate have a direct effect and interest in these towns. And yet, Kallianiotis achieves a certain level of neutrality within the work. Whether it is the hard Pennsylvania coal towns to the East, the shadows of looming steel stacks to the West or every faded American dream in between.

Through the use of light and color, an illumination of hope, the photographer explores his own relationship with the land. Within 'America in a Trance' there is the silhouette of what once was, streets and storefronts thriving, and the echo of that time still ringing in the bricks of the houses and churches.

Picture of New York

Publisher’s Description

This is a special edition hardcover photobook featuring the early works of Masao Gozu.

In “Windows”, the series Gozu began shooting shortly after moving to Brooklyn in 1971, Gozu photographed the people in New York’s immigrant quarters as they looked out of their apartment windows at a passing parade. The two other series included in the book are also portrayals of life in downtown 1970’s New York: in “264 Bowery Street” Gozu repeatedly shot a doorstep and the people using it as a resting stop over several months and even years while the “Harry’s Bar” series shows glass windows of a bar and the guests sitting behind them.

Picture of Politics of Seeing

Publisher’s Description

This book presents Dorothea Lange’s inspiring and influential photographs, which brought the plight of 20th-century America’s poor and disenfranchised into the public eye.

Dorothea Lange’s photograph, Migrant Mother, is one of the most indelible and recognizable images of the Dust Bowl era. Lange’s career stretched far beyond the Great Depression, driven throughout by her compassionate advocacy for the people and land of California. This riveting book opens with Lange’s Bay Area portraits of the 1920s and ’30s when her photo studio formed a hub for San Francisco’s bohemian and artistic elite. It offers a generous overview of her work with the Farm Security Administration, where Lange was the only female photographer documenting the impact of the Depression and Dust Bowl on the west coast, working alongside the likes of Walker Evans, as well as her pictures of Japanese Americans forcibly displaced into internment camps following Pearl Harbor. It also includes images from her wartime shipyards series with Ansel Adams, postwar projects on the injustices of the American court system, loss of a community through the damming of the Putah Creek, and a photo series on Ireland. Accompanying these superbly reproduced images are thoughtful essays by curator Drew Johnson, critic Abigail Solomon-Godeau, and writer and curator David Campany, which offer appreciations of Lange’s work as an artist and humanitarian, charting the legacy of her exceptional photographic oeuvre.

With contributions from Drew Johnson, David Campany, Abigail Solomon-Godeau

Picture of Camp de Rivesaltes

Publisher’s Description

“FLORE refused to create something beautiful on a site that has witnessed so many crimes. And yet these are remarkable photos. A surprising contradiction that speaks to the gamble she took, and the challenge that she faced: it is important to remember that this is a space in time, a place that makes an impression on each visitor, and one with a long timeframe embedded into the landscape. The approach is somewhat reminiscent of the impressive architectural statement delivered by Rudy Riciotti, who designed the Camp de Rivesaltes memorial: he understood that rather than imposing his building on the site, the site should impose itself on the building. Hence a memorial buried two-thirds underground; that starts off at ground level and then stretches for 200 metres before reaching the height of the bunkhouses.

The site is already heavily laden with emotion. The role of artists and scientists is to lend meaning to these emotions, to enhance them with an understanding of the history and its narratives, because the classic numbing effect induced by an emotional shock excludes any opportunity for analysis or interpretation. FLORE has moved this to another dimension. I got to know her soon after I first encountered the memorial project…I have crossed paths with FLORE several times since the 2000s. She roamed the camp, searching for traces of the past, for images and landscape, as if she sensed the urgency of such an intervention, of this listing and conservation.

There is a unique feature to the Camp de Rivesaltes: although there were over 200 internment camps in France during the dark years of 1938 to 1946, it is the only one to have left a mark on the landscape. There are of course other highly important sites, such as Drancy – the transit camp for the deportation of French Jews – or Milles (near Aix-en-Provence), which house important memorials. They even contain period graffiti and murals. But the buildings have either been destroyed or have simply regained their original function, such as a high-rise apartment block, or a tilery. When you are aware of this history, the emotional burden is intense; when you uncover visible traces, the depth of the site’s past is revealed. At Rivesaltes, you can imagine this as you wander the landscape of dilapidated bunkhouses with an endless horizon. But is it truly possible to imagine what happened?

The Camp de Rivesaltes is unique in that it spanned the two greatest tragedies of the second part of the twentieth century in France: the Second World War and the Algerian War. In particular, it saw the administrative detention of Jews, Spaniards and Gypsies during the war and the deportation of the Jews in a site that became the interregional deportation camp for the southern zone between September and November 1942. Remember that people were placed in administrative detention not because they had committed a crime, but for the possible threat that they posed to society or to the State. Troops passed through this vast 600 ha site during the Algerian War,
and National Liberation Front prisoners were actually imprisoned there for several months. The Camp is infamous as the site where some 22,000 harkis – French Army auxiliaries who served in Algeria – were kept.

Initially housed in the banishment camp after the Evian Agreements, between 1962 and 1964, some were then kept in “hameaux de forestage” – communities on the outskirts of forests – with certain families still on the site in the early 1970s. Other groups have passed through the site, such as German prisoners of war after the Liberation and, more recently, returnable migrants locked up in a detention centre. But they all have one thing in common: they were displaced against their free will, abandoned there for years, and regarded as outcasts.

FLORE’s photographs capture and convey this in its entirety. Look at them closely. And marvel at art’s capacity to convey the reality of suffering and exclusion”.

Picture of My Journey (Ryojin)

Publisher's Description

"My Journey (Ryojin)", 60 black and white works were selected from her images taken from 1968 (around the time when she started photography) to the 1980s. Some of these works have never been shown to the public - Sceneries from train windows, fishing boats at the port, photobook for Tamiko Nishimura's latest street performer in Asakusa, Uchinada sand dune under heavy snow, her neighborhood and people around her, etc.

To Nishimura, journeys are always followed by snapshots and she constantly photographs as if she is travelling, even when she is in Tokyo. She calmly focuses on each encounter and develops the images in the dark room - It is a stance that has never changed for her in the past several decades.

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

Publisher’s Description

Fleetingly flashed, meticulously observed, packed with intoxicating energy, shock frozen, voyeuristically charged, dramatically overstated, romantically wild, tragic, comical, broodingly absent, and strangely horrific – the street, that urban space experienced directly and mundanely as an urban living environment, is by far one of the most scintillating and multifaceted subjects of photography.

The exhibition Street. Life. Photography, organized in conjunction with the Triennial of Photography, features fifty-two photographic positions with roughly 350 works from the F. C. Gundlach and Falckenberg collections, as well as numerous loans and cooperation projects with contemporary artists. It is divided into seven thematic groups: Street Life, Crashes, Public Transfer, Urban Space, Lines and Signs, Anonymity, and Alienation. Emancipated from Henri Cartier-Bresson’s decisive moment, new narrative tendencies of Street Photography brush aside the concentration on photographic testimony. Photo-historical icons and contemporary positions mutually charge each other and, in a deliberately subjective overview, provide information on social phenomena photographically manifested on the street over the past seventy years.

Picture of Scrublands

Publisher’s Description

While hitchhiking across the length and breadth of France, Antoine Bruy met men and women who, in Ardèche and Lozère, aspire to live in the most self-sufficient way possible. Inspired by this approach, he volunteered within a network that lists initiatives based on biodynamic agriculture and permaculture. He was hosted in communities that enabled him to meet these men and women, in France, Romania, Switzerland, Spain, or the United States –  sixteen locations in all are present in his work, scattered over two continents. In these locations where Bruy travels with no more than his backpack, he photographs both nature, whose infinite nuances he meticulously captures, and habitats, disparate assemblages, characterised by their simplicity and rusticity. He also creates portraits of men and women who have chosen to isolate themselves in these places.

Picture of American interiors

Publisher’s Description

American Interiors depicts the psychological repercussions of war and military service through images of the interiors of cars owned by USA veterans.

Through working with veterans over a five year period, Casteel became aware of the subtle indicators of past traumatic experience. He also recognised that the condition in which we live can often be a signifier of our well­-being, and that even the state of car interiors can be seen as a manifestation of human interiors.

American Interiors explores the area between “the circumstantial and the evident” and it is in the space that separates the slickly produced military recruitment ads from the statistics about rates of veteran homelessness and suicide that this work resides. Casteel balances the empathy he feels for those who have survived the military experience, with a deep sense of outrage towards America’s industrial military complex and the institutionalised violence of warfare.

Publisher’s Description

Handsomely illustrated and grand in scale, this book features images by American photographer William Wylie (b. 1957) taken over the course of five years. The photographs reanimate the ancient city of Pompeii, showing the ongoing cycles of deterioration and preservation that mark it as a living landscape. Wylie captures Pompeii’s former grandeur, including its terracotta reliefs and wall paintings, while also drawing attention to the signs of an active excavation site, from plaster casts in glass cases to ceramic fragments in storage facilities. His elegant compositions and command of light and shadow highlight how natural phenomena, pollution, and human intervention are continually reshaping the city. People, however, are notably absent in the photographs. Wylie beautifully documents Pompeii’s present by engaging with the tenuous relationship that the archaeological site maintains with the past.

Picture of Mexico Between Life and Death

Publisher's Description

During fourteen trips between 1993 and 2010, Harvey Stein photographed in Mexico, primarily in small towns and villages and mostly during festivals (Day of the Dead, Easter, Independence Day) that highlight the country’s unique relationship to death, myth, ritual and religion. This book is the definitive expression of Stein’s intimate relationship with the people and culture of Mexico.

The images show fragments of what Mexico is, a country of incredible contrasts and contradictions. Mexico is about piercing light and deep shadow, of stillness and quick explosiveness, of massive tradition and creeping progress, of great religious belief but with corruption as a way of life. It is a land of ritual and legend, of vibrant life and dancing skeletons, a country next to the United States yet so far away, and with over 50 percent of its population under 20 years old but where old age is revered. In these masterful photographs, Mexico – Between Life and Death, Stein explores these unsettling disparities.

Picture of The New Colonists

Publisher’s Description

The New Colonists, a project in three parts, begins by presenting the uncanny suburban town of Mars in Pennsylvania, USA. Steeped in midnight tones, her quotidian documentations of gas stations, football fields and fast food joints transport viewers to a time, place and feeling of all American life, but more importantly, human life. The work is imbued with a sense of western normality - whilst hinting to an otherworldly undertone beyond these images.

Interrupting the quietness of small town America captured in the book are 5 additional sequences of images, which are inserted into this suburban narrative, chronicling the research and individual scientists who are attempting to make colonising the red planet a reality.

Placed at key intersections in the book, Alcazar-Duarte’s contrasting documentary images capture everything from the top space travel technology in the European Space Agency, to the terrestrial ‘Mars Yards’, where robotic rovers are put through their paces in artificial landscapes of rock and sand. Meanwhile, would-be astronauts are tested against the rigours of a future Mars mission, confined for months at a time to enclosed habitats in inhospitable places such as polar deserts, Hawaiian lava fields, or even an industrial estate outside Moscow.

These efforts take place in the most down-to-Earth of locations and circumstances as well as the most sophisticated, but all of these scientists are, or will be, leading the construction of a new future in a far land.

The third component of the book consists of an “Augmented Reality Portal”. Using an app designed by Paul Ferragut, readers are invited to search for and discover embedded footage and sound within the book’s pages. Through this ‘portal’ viewers encounter a new knowledge. The videos feature 3-D animations of spy satellites and space colonies by Levan Tozashvili as well as narration from Dr Ian Crawford, Professor of Planetary Science and Astrobiology at Birkbeck. Within this interview Crawford presents his ideas on Space colonisation. And the notions of “space law” and “space ethics”.

The New Colonists celebrates the zeal, creativity and resilience of the people behind the initial efforts our society is making towards this next phase in History. It encourages us to look to the far future with eyes wide open, with an imperative need to resolve legal loopholes, allowing space exploration to proceed in a peaceful and balanced way.

"As well as focusing on this high-cost, high-stakes and high-tech endeavour, the book is also about the everyday, as embodied by the town of Mars, Pennsylvania.By examining these two seemingly opposite subjects, Alcazar-Duarte renders "normal" life strange and extraordinary, and the rarified world of science accessible an d fallible. The book's third layer is an "augmented reality portal" – an app designed to allow readers to discover information about space hidden in its pages." -Bruno Bayley, Vice Magazine

Picture of I Called her Lisa Marie (Signed)

Publisher's Description

Liz named her daughter Lisa Marie, just like Elvis Presley’s daughter. French photographer Clémentine Schneidermann met Liz in Newport, Wales, a few miles away from the world’s largest festival to “the king”. Each year Liz joins tens of thousands of fans at the seaside resort of Porthcawl to celebrate the life and music of their icon, Elvis Presley.

From 2013 to 2017, Schneidermann joined too, creating portraits of fans Alison and her son, Steve, Samantha and Ian – among many others, for her series I Called her Lisa Marie. Schneidermann spent a lot of time with these people, using her camera to capture the poignancy of this flamboyant gathering where the life and music of the king offers a moment of solace.

Schneidermann is based in Cardiff, and travelled with the Alison and her son from Wales to where it all began in Memphis. She met the pair at the festival, where Alison’s son was performing under the stage name Johnny B. Goode. Schneidermann documented their pilgrimage across the Atlantic, creating Johnny B. Goode, a visual travel diary that is presented with I Called her Lisa Marie here in her first monograph.

Picture of The Month Before Trump (Signed)

Publisher’s Description

A special edition limited to 100 copies. Includes a 7"x 5" signed & numbered print as well as the book.

In the month before the 2016 presidential election New Zealand photographer Harvey Benge spent time in San Francisco and New York making the images in this book.

In many ways these 59 photographs represent a time capsule – places, people and scraps of visual information – that is an affectionate and sometimes critical look at this mash up of a society that in October 2016 was at an existential watershed. This work does not pretend to be an objective look at America, it is simply Benge’s subjective view. The images are filtered through Benge’s own sensibilities, formed by his country’s own brand of politics where socialism is embraced and not a dirty word. And, of course, the states of California and New York present just one aspect of what it means to be an American.

There is no judgment here, just Benge’s desire to understand and attempt to tap into something resembling truth. There is a sense of profound sadness here too, of futility and a feeling that not much lies behind the fake news, the hard sell, or the glossy surface of things. Despite all of this there is resilience and resistance. Stoicism is in the air and there is a feeling that things will come right.

Well known for his many photobooks, Harvey Benge has twice been a finalist in the prestigious Prix du Livre at Arles Photography Festival, France. He has exhibited his work extensively in both public and private galleries in Britain, throughout Europe, and in New Zealand. Benge is also involved in curatorial projects and runs a series of ongoing photography workshops with international photographers at Auckland’s AUT University.

Picture of Niagara

Due to publish September 2018

Publisher's Description

In the follow-up to his critically acclaimed debut monograph Sleeping by the Mississippi, Alec Soth turned his eye to another iconic body of water, Niagara Falls. As with his photographs of the Mississippi, Soth’s pictures of Niagara are less about natural wonder than human desire. “I went to Niagara for the same reason as the honeymooners and suicide jumpers,” says Soth, “the relentless thunder of the Falls just calls for big passion.” Working over the course of two years on both the American and Canadian sides of the Falls using a large-format 8x10 camera, the photographs are rigorously composed and richly detailed. Soth depicts newlyweds and naked lovers, motel parking lots and pawn shop wedding rings. Throughout the book, Soth has interspersed a number of love letters from the subjects he photographed. We read about teenage crushes, workplace affairs, heartbreak and suicide. Oscar Wilde wrote of the Falls, “The sight of the stupendous waterfall must be one of the earliest, if not the keenest, disappointments in American married life.” In Soth’s Niagara, we see both the passion and the disappointment. His pictures are a remarkable portrayal of modern love and its aftermath.

Picture of The Great British Seaside: Photography from the 1960s to the Present

Publisher's Description

Many of us in Britain look back with fondness on memories of paddles in the sea and picnics on the promenade. Yet the seaside can also be a place of faded glory and acute deprivation. These tensions have provided fertile ground for documentary photographers who have sought to capture the ambiguities and eccentricities that define a day at the British seaside.

Featuring works by some of Britain’s best-loved photographers – Tony Ray-Jones, David Hurn, Martin Parr, and Simon Roberts – this book explores our changing relationship with the seaside over the last six decades and holds up a critical and affectionate mirror to a much-loved and quintessentially British experience.

Published to accompany the 2018 National Maritime Museum exhibition The Great British Seaside: Photography from the 1960s to the Present, this book showcases over 100 photographs, including material from each of the photographers’ archival collections, newly commissioned works, and never-before-seen images.

Dog’s Best Friend, A Pet Project marks Friedlander’s first monograph centering on his dogs--one of his career-long interests--and, in many instances, their relationship to their owners. From the publisher: “His pictures show the role these precious pets play in our day-to-day lives. We see dogs as companions, objects of affection, waiting alone in their gated yards, in parks, and in cars – the usual breadth of situation that Lee Friedlander is known for. Not much misses the roving eye of Friedlander... but this title is sure to delight as it is filled with the warmth and humor of the human condition as it interacts with the favored pet, all framed and juxtaposed in the stunning style of Lee Friedlander.”

Picture of Gap in the Hedge (Special Edition)

Publisher's Description

Built in 1928, ’Bwlch-y-Clawdd’ (Gap in the Hedge) is a mountain pass (450m) that connects the Rhondda Valley - In South Wales - to the town where I was born and still live, Bridgend. It is also connected to the Afan Valley via the A4107, which leads through to the coastline and industrial town of Port Talbot. The Bwlch road itself is the A4061, which stretches approximately 25 miles.

Not only did the pass offer a lifeline to the isolated valleys, and present greater job opportunities for the local people but it also provided an essential shortcut for valley based industry; predominantly coal related. My parents used the pass themselves to make their own move to Bridgend in 1966; starting their own business there shortly after.

Loosely based around nostalgia, ‘Gap in the Hedge’ reflects on a journey I used to make with my Mother to visit relatives in the Rhondda Valley, every Saturday when I was a small boy. It was my first taste of a road trip and I can recall almost every inch of the journey. I’d sit there in the front seat of my Mother’s little red car utterly absorbed and mesmerised by the forests, terraced houses and falling rock warning signs. The journey seemed to take forever, but we were only ever around 30 minutes from home.

This series not only attempts to document the beauty of this iconic piece of South Wales landscape, but also explores the relationship that the people - whether locals, tourists or workers - have with the landscape and environment. And ultimately, what lies ahead for this part of South Wales following Brexit and the abolition of EU funding. The immediate villages of Nantymoel and Cwmparc - both of which are former mining communities - either side of the mountain, are incorporated into the project, as the pair both sit in the shadow of ‘The Bwlch’.

Publisher's Description

Before becoming the critically acclaimed filmmaker responsible for such iconic films as Dr. Strangelove and The Shining, Stanley Kubrick spent five years as a photographer for Look magazine. The Bronx native joined the staff in 1945, when he was only 17 years old, and shot humanist slice-of-life features that celebrate and expose New York City and its inhabitants.

Through a Different Lens reveals the keen and evocative vision of a burgeoning creative genius in a range of feature stories and images, from everyday folk at the laundromat to a day in the life of a debutant, from a trip to the circus to Columbia University. Featuring around 300 images, many previously unseen, as well as rare Look magazine tear sheets, this release coincides with a major show at the Museum of the City of New York and includes an introduction by noted photography critic Luc Sante.

These still photographs attest to Kubrick’s innate talent for compelling storytelling, and serve as clear indicators of how this genius would soon transition to making some of the greatest movies of all time.
