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 (Signed)

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 Complete with his Leica and out of date film, Wood made vibrant and real photographs of the shoppers as they hunted for bargains and met up with friends and family.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

Picture of Players: Magnum Photographers Come Out to Play

Publisher's Description

In order to go beyond the rules and the veneration that have characterised the development of photography since its beginnings, it is necessary to transgress, to invent, to play and to flirt with freedom. In this sense, there haven’t historically been many authors who have dared to question the medium and turn it around, which confirms the impression that, as a language yet to be fully consolidated, photography hasn’t been in the mood for jokes. But there are always authors, specially in the newer generations, who break the rules without vindications, just out of curiosity, seeking to have and portray fun.

Revolving around this idea, Players—a volume to accompany the exhibition of the same name that will take place as part of the Festival PHotoEspaña 2018—presents a selection of woks by Magnum photographers that have a playful approach, either because they play with the photographic medium itself, or because they portray fun and leisure.

Photographers: Abbas, Christopher Anderson, Olivia Arthur. Bruno Barbey, Jonas Bendiksen, Ian Berry, Michael Christopher Brown, Cartier Bresson, Thomas Dworzak, Bruce Davidson, Karl de Keyzer, Raymond Depardon, Bieke Depoorter, Carolyn Drake, Elliott Erwitt, Martine Frank, Stuart Franklin, Leonard Freed, Cristina García Rodero, Bruce Gilden, Burt Glinn, Jim Goldberg, Harry Gruyaert, David Allan Harvey, David Hurn, Richard Kalvar, Hiroji Kubota, Guy Le Querrec, Erich Lessing, Alex Majoli, Peter Marlow, Steve Mc Curry, Susan Meiselas, Trent Parke, Martin Parr, Paolo Pellegrin, Gueorgui Pinkhassov, Mark Power, Eli Reed, Marc Riboud, Moises Saman, Alessandra Sanguinetti, Jerome Sessini, Jacob Aue Sobol, Alec Soth, Chris Steele Perkins, Dennis Stock, Matt Stuart, Mikhael Subotzky, Larry Towell, Peter Van Agtmael, Alex Webb, Patrick Zachmann.

Picture of The Crash

Publisher's Description

In 2008 the financial crash hit the City of London. Panic filled the air and people working for the giant money machine seemed oblivious to a photographer working quickly and quietly in their midst. Now, over a decade later, these images question what we have learned... if anything at all.

Stephen McLaren moved to Bethnal Green in 1996, became a photographer, and quickly realised he never wanted to live anywhere else in London other than the East End. Stephen has written a number of books on photography, including 'Photographers’ Sketchbooks', and currently works as a photographer and writer in Los Angeles.

Picture of Public Matters (Signed)

Publisher's Description

Capturing the spirit of protest and parade, Public Matters brings together photographs made by Janet Delaney in Reagan-era San Francisco. At this turbulent time in the mid eighties, Delaney was living in the primarily Latino neighbourhood of the Mission District. She would spend the weekends photographing public gatherings, from the annual Cinco de Mayo parade, to the Peace, Jobs and Justice marches, which rallied against the U.S. invasion of Nicaragua. If political governance was regressing, the West Coast city was a place where, as Delaney remembers, ‘progressive ideas would always be upheld.’ Celebrating multiculturalism and collective struggles for social justice, Public Matters surfaces at a juncture when the message of building bridges is needed now more than ever.

In the vintage glow of her sun-drenched images, Delaney leads us in and out of crowds – among demonstrators, fair-goers, cross-dressers, union organisers, beauty pageants, dancers, salesmen, mothers, kids, and market punters – searching for as many intimate moments as she found collective voices. Fearlessly upbeat, her photographs nevertheless intimate a time when, as Delaney recollects, people ‘were reeling from the shift to a conservative government. The demands of the 1960s were addressed in the 70s: the end of the Vietnam war, women’s rights, environmental issues, gay rights, to name a few. Then when Reagan was elected all this came to a halt.’ And as soon as the streets were filled with placards – ‘babies are for loving, not for bombing’; ‘Hatred can never cure the disease of fear, only love can do that’ – Delaney was there, in the middle of the maelstrom, making pictures of public matters.

Picture of Liberty Theater (Signed)

Publisher's Description

Liberty Theater by Rosalind Fox Solomon brings together her photographs made in the Southern United States from the 1970s to 1990s, never before published together as a group. Solomon’s images depict a complex terrain of social and emotional issues inherited over generations: a world of class and gender divisions, implied and overt racism, competing notions of liberty, and lurking violence. Journeying through Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, and South California, Solomon draws attention to cultural idiosyncrasies, paradoxes and theatrical displays: a Daughter of the Confederacy sits in costume with a china doll from her collection; a dead tree stump, fenced and suspended with wires is elevated to the status of a Civil War monument; African American boys examine a vitrine of guns as two white police manikins loom behind them. Poised between act and re-enactment, the animate and the inanimate, Solomon’s images reveal how history becomes a vernacular performance and identity a form of theatre.

Picture of New York

Publisher's Description

The starting point for Evelyn Hofer’s New York is the 1965 book New York Proclaimed, which features an in-depth essay by V. S. Pritchett and photos by Hofer, and enjoyed great popularity upon its original publication. New York Proclaimed is an example of Hofer’s perhaps most important body of work, her city portraits: books that present comprehensive prose texts by renowned authors alongside her self-contained visual essays with their own narratives. The newly conceived New York focuses on Hofer’s photos of the 1960s as well as until now unpublished images from the early 1970s.

In Hofer’s photos of the street and (semi-)public spaces, people and architecture become symbols of a particular time and place. She immersed herself in New York society and captured these aspects of the everyday—inconspicuous and subtle, yet all the more enduring for being so—in images that invariably reflect the zeitgeist. New York contains a new essay by John Haskell which posits possible stories behind Hofer’s photos and draws connections between images taken over the course of ten years.

Picture of The Quiet Pioneer

Publisher's Description

More often than not, when discussion turns to the pioneering days of modern photojournalism, a number of names instantly spring to mind; Cartier-Bresson, Brassai, Doisneau and Kertesz are just a handful who are synonymous with the genre. However, arguably one of the founding fathers of reportage is inevitably missing from the list. A man who was at the very forefront of this photographic revolution and who, like those mentioned above, did much to change the world of photography. Kurt Hutton – arguably every bit as influential and ground-breaking as his counterparts – did much to usher in the new era of photo-documentary and was one of an elite band of photojournalists to first utilize the Leica in Britain, fundamentally changing how we viewed our world in the process.

The ‘revelatory experience’ – when one comes across Kurt’s imagery for the first time – seems to be a regular occurrence and happened again recently with none other than the Leica company itself – needless to say, an exhibition is now touring Leica galleries across Europe as a result. It is baffling why Hutton is not mentioned in the same breath as those ‘greats’ listed above but after a hiatus of some 70 years since the last ‘Kurt Hutton’ book, we can at least take another small step in establishing Hutton as one of the true giants of 20th century photojournalism.

Picture of Birdmen (Signed)

Publisher's Description

Pigeon racing is a unique sport with its roots deep within traditional working-class communities. it thrived among Britain’s miners, shipbuilders and iron and steel workers.

Reaching its peak by the early 1970s with over 2,000 societies and 130,000 members, as the decade progressed and heavy industries collapsed, communities were torn apart and the number of Birdmen fell to under 60,000.

Zak Waters realised that the sport was changing and began documenting the fast-dwindling community with all its humour, anxieties and passion. Birdmen is his record of the slow death of a culture that has changed almost beyond recognition.

Rod Adams, legendary writer on all things pigeon, has contributed witty and insightful stories about the sport and the characters that made it so special.

Picture of Japan Somewhere

Publisher's Description

This latest publication by French photographer Maki includes images taken between 2001 and 2015 during many visits to Japan. The high-contrast black-and-white photos, from streetsnaps to portraits, landscapes and the occasional erotic image, paint a manifold picture of Maki’s extensive experience of Japan while avoiding the common mistake of needless orientalism.

Says Russet Lederman in her essay “A Journey to Japan Somewhere”: “Maki approaches photography as a series of open-ended encounters experienced from both inside and outside Japanese culture. (...) "Japan Somewhere" travels both figuratively and literally into Japan’s back alleys.”

Picture of Housing Plans for the Future

Publisher's Description

This is the latest of Donovan Wylie’s books with Steidl that explore the architecture of the Northern Ireland conflict. While Wylie’s earlier publications including British Watchtowers and Maze (on Belfast’s Maze prison) document disappearing military structures, Housing Plans for the Future focuses on the legacy of architectural containment in urban areas today.

Wylie took these photos during walks through a number of social-housing neighborhoods in inner-city Belfast, which look eerily similar. While the built environments at first appear benign, even mundane, sustained looking reveals how they purposely control vision and movement. Walls block vehicle access, houses are inverted to face away from neighboring communities and minimize potential antagonism, and excessive street lighting ensures visibility in what Wylie calls “a prison of sorts … a completely thought-through system of social control.” These defensive structures, built in the 1970s and ’80s and still populated today, are a powerful and largely unrecognized legacy of the Northern Ireland conflict.

Picture of The Sweet Flypaper of Life

Publisher's Description

“The people in these photographs had no walls up. They just accepted me and permitted me to take their photographs without any self-consciousness.” —Roy DeCarava

The Sweet Flypaper of Life is a “poem” about ordinary people, about teenagers around a jukebox, about children at an open fire hydrant, about riding the subway alone at night, about picket lines and artist work spaces. This renowned, life-affirming collaboration between artist Roy DeCarava and writer Langston Hughes honors in words and pictures what the authors saw, knew, and felt deeply about life in their city.

Hughes’s heart-warming description of Harlem in the late 1940s and early 1950s is seen through the eyes of one grandmother, Sister Mary Bradley. As she guides the reader through the lives of those around her, we imagine the babies born, families in struggle, children yet flourishing. We experience the sights and sounds of Harlem as seen through her learned and worldly eyes, expressed here through Hughes’s poetic prose. As she states, “I done got my feet caught in the sweet flypaper of life and I’ll be dogged if I want to get loose.” DeCarava’s photographs lay open a world of sense and feeling that begins with his perception and vision. The ruminations go beyond the limit of simple observation and contend with deeper meanings to reveal these individuals as subjects worthy of art. While Hughes states “We’ve had so many books about how bad life is, maybe it’s time to have one showing how good it is,” the photographs bring us back to this lively dialogue and a complex reality, to a resolution that stands with the optimism of the photographic medium and the certainty of DeCarava’s artistic moment.

In 1952 DeCarava became the first African American photographer to win a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship. The one-year grant enabled DeCarava to focus full time on the photography he had been creating since the mid-1940s and to complete a project that would eventually result in The Sweet Flypaper of Life, a moving, photo-poetic work in the urban setting of Harlem. DeCarava compiled a set of images from which Hughes chose 141 and adeptly supplied a fictive narration, reflecting on life in that city-within-a-city. First published in 1955, the book, widely considered a classic of photographic visual literature, was reprinted by public demand several times. This fourth printing, the Heritage Edition, is the first authorized English-language edition since 1983 and includes an afterword by Sherry Turner DeCarava tracing the history and ongoing importance of this book.

Picture of We are Indestructible

Publisher’s Description

Danish photographer Mads Nissen has documented the civil war in Colombia since 2010. More than 50 years of conflict between the government army, guerrilla rebels and paramilitary groups has led to the internal displacement of 7 million citizens, leaving visible scars on the landscape and people of Colombia. We are Indestructible is the culmination of Nissen’s work, providing a portrait of a war-torn country navigating the complexities of newfound peace.

The photographs in the book journey from the offices of President Juan Manuel Santos to the forest encampments of the FARC guerrilla, from lush mountain ranges to dangerous slums on the outskirts of Colombia’s larger cities where 95% of the population are the displaced. Colombia is the main producer of cocaine in the world, fuelled by demand from the US and Europe. The economics of this drug trade, intertwined with poverty and inequality, in a county with an ingrained history and culture of violence, has fed the cycle of unrest. Looking beyond the causation and politics, Nissen’s project presents a compelling picture of the main actors as well as the ordinary citizens whose daily lives are caught in the middle of the violence, cocaine production, guerrilla fighters and gang members. Amongst the photographs in the book are textual ‘voices’ representing those portrayed, copies of paramilitary-issued propaganda ‘death threats’ and botanical illustrations by Colombian artist Lisa Anzellini, depicting new species discovered in former conflict zones since access has been re-established. We are Indestructible provides a glimpse of the multi-layered seams of Colombia’s past, present and future.

The longest running civil war in recent history, which has left over 200,000 dead, grew out of partisan conflicts in the 1920s. By the 1960s, the conflict escalated into a complex civil war – pitting the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) against the Colombian Army and paramilitary groups often linked to drug cartels or domineering land owners. In 2010, Juan Manuel Santos was elected to the presidency and started secret negotiations with representatives of the FARC – yet when a final deal had been agreed upon, a referendum narrowly voted “No”. Santos went back to Havana to thrash out a new deal with the rebels and clinched an agreement that was unanimously approved by both houses of parliament in November 2016. In reality, this newfound peace was won on paper only and the coming years would show the true value of political accord when pitted against and the practicalities of reconciliation in a country with a deep-seated history of conflict.

Mads Nissen was born in Denmark in 1979 and graduated with distinction from The Danish School of Media and Journalism in 2007. After graduation, he moved to Shanghai to document the human and social consequences of China’s historic economic rise working for Time, Newsweek, Der Spiegel and Stern amongst others.

In 2015, his photograph of a gay couple from Russia was selected as World Press Photo of the Year and his work has received more than 60 awards, in 2018 he was named ‘Photographer of the Year’ for the third time in Denmark. In 2016, he was commissioned by the Nobel Peace Center to photograph Colombia’s President Juan Manuel Santos and the country’s struggle for peace.

Alongside his long-term projects and exhibitions, he has worked for the Danish daily Politiken since 2014. Two monographs of his work have been published previously, AMAZONAS (2013) and The Fallen (2010). Nissen is represented by Panos Pictures in the UK; Prospekt in Italy and by Laif in Germany.

Picture of Ex Offenders at the Scene of Crime: South Africa and England, 2008–2016

Publisher’s Description

Criminals and alleged offenders at the the scene of the crime or arrest that changed their lives

The origins of this book lie in David Goldblatt’s simple observation that many of his fellow South Africans, regardless of their race and class, are the victims of often violent crime. “I have asked myself,” says Goldblatt, “not least in the fear and fury of holdups with knives and guns, who are you? Are you monsters? Are you ‘ordinary’ people—if there are such? How did you come to do this? What are your lives?”

And so began in 2008 Ex Offenders at the Scene of Crime, for which Goldblatt photographed criminal offenders and alleged offenders at the place that was probably life-changing for them and their victims: the scene of the crime or arrest. Each portrait is accompanied by the subject’s written story in his or her own words, for many a cathartic experience and the first opportunity to recount events without being judged. To ensure the integrity of his undertaking, Goldblatt paid each of his subjects 800 rand for permission to photograph and interview them, and any profit from the project will be donated to the rehabilitation of offenders. Ex Offenders also features Goldblatt’s portraits and interviews of subjects in England, made in collaboration with the community arts project Multistory.

Published in a limited edition of 750 copies, the book comes with a handmade wooden support.

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 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
