Publisher's Description

This book documents a hitchhike along China’s Cross-Desert Highway, a road built in the mid 1990s to help the extraction of oil. It stretches for more than 500km from north to south across the Taklamakan, one of the world’s most inhospitable deserts. The journey records the road and its people - truck drivers, cotton pickers, oil well workers and prostitutes, whose lives are caught up in the dependancy and desolation of the prospering oil industry.

Picture of Hidden Islam SIGNED

2nd printing Sept 2014

Publisher's Description

From the introduction by Martin Parr:

Consider these facts. In Italy the right to worship, without discrimination, is enshrined within the constitution. There are 1.35 million Muslims in Italy and yet, officially, only eight mosques in the whole country.
One consequence is that the Muslim population have accumulated a huge number of makeshift and temporary places of worship. These are housed in a variety of buildings including lock ups, garages, shops, warehouses and old factories.
This shortage of places to worship is particularly acute in north east Italy – where the photographer Nicolò Degiorgis lives – home to many anti-Islamic campaigns headed by the right wing party Lega Nord. The dull images of the many and diverse buildings that house the makeshift mosques are printed on folded pages. You open up the gatefold to reveal the scenes inside the mosques, shot in full colour. The size of the gatherings varies, from large crowds who sometimes pray outside to a small room full to bursting, or to intimate groups of two or three Muslims.
Degiorgis provides a fascinating glimpse of hidden world and leaves the conclusions about this project entirely in our own hands.

Picture of Disco Night  Sept 11 SIGNED

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

Publisher's Description

Disco Night Sept. 11 is a chronicle of America's wars from 2006-2013. The photographs shift back and forth from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to the USA, unsparingly capturing the violent, ceaseless cost, but also the mystery and the madness, the beauty and absurdity at the core of each conflict. The narrative is complemented by nineteen gatefolds which elaborate on places and individuals.

Photographs are fragments, sometimes only loosely tied to important experiences. An extensive text records some of the missing pieces. The stories that precede and follow the moment of the photograph, conversations with soldiers, anonymous graffiti that's part confession, part boast.

Disco Night Sept. 11 is an expansive yet intimate account of this defining era of history.

See here for further details and selected images.

Picture of Down and Out in Moscow

Publisher's Description

In summer 1995 Miron Zownir traveled to Russia. Focused on street photography he took pictures of homeless, dying and dead people. According to Zownir, he experienced Moscow as "the most aggressive and dangerous city I've ever been to." Yet even Russian militia couldn't keep him away from depicting the blatant social and moral decline in the former Soviet Union. Zownir's images from Russia are bitter and brutal, and highly distressing to view. The human tragic of radical poverty, that they reveal, ultimately climaxes in the utterly undignified act of dying in public. "It was Dante's inferno," Zownir would state when he returned to Berlin after three months of a terrifying descend into the lower depths of the Post-Soviet society.

Since more than 30 years Miron Zownir is known as one of the most radical contemporary photographers. His images from the western cities like Berlin, New York and London or the post-communist east-europe were shown in several international shows like the Fotomuseum Winterthur in Switzerland. Miron Zownir's photographs were shown next to Nobuyoshi Araki, Nan Goldin, Robert Mapplethorpe, Weegee, Larry Clark, Robert Capa and many more.

Picture of Hackney Photographs 1985-87

Publisher's Description

Located in east London just north of The City, Hackney has a long history stretching back to Tudor times. During the 1980s when Berris Conolly took these photographs it was an area that had been in decline. This was a decade of turmoil in both national and local politics with issues of social justice never far from the headlines. Today the concerns increasingly revolve around the gentrification of areas of the borough and the disparities of wealth that this exemplifies. 

Berris Conolly photographed the places that he knew and that formed his everyday environment. Using the A-Z, he walked, cycled or drove down every street, marking off the grid squares as he went. There was no conscious or formal theme to the project, other than to record mainly the streets and buildings rather than people, though inevitably people did start to appear in some of the images, either as figures in the landscape, or frequently at their own request. Often he would set up the tripod to take an empty scene and passers-by would ask to be photographed, possibly drawn by the sight of a large camera and tripod. “Are you from the local paper?” was a common question. The resultant archive comprises over 1500 images.

After many years in advertising photography Berris Conolly began focussing on documentary landscape in the early 1980s, leaving commercial photography completely by 1985. He moved from London to Sheffield at the end of 1988 to work on a commission for Untitled Gallery (now Site) to document the city, working as one of several photographers on a two-year Regeneration Project, which culminated in exhibitions across the city in 1991 to coincide with the World Student Games. He subsequently joined the management committee of Untitled, assisting with the exhibition and events programme through selection, commissioning and curating exhibitions. After setting up a landscape gardening company in 1994 he didn’t photograph for the following ten years, before picking up a camera again in 2004. By this time digital imaging had largely replaced film and traditional darkroom printing.

Picture of Gomorrah Girl

Publisher's Description

“In this book there are portraits of girls whose destinies can still change if not the destiny of the area in which they are growing up. Annalisa was one of them. She kept a diary, in which she wrote that Naples was becoming too dangerous to live in and how she was dreaming to escape.”
- Valerio Spada

Gomorrah Girl tells two stories in one, the problems of growing up in a crime-ridden area and the murder of Annalisa Durante, a young woman caught in the crossfire of a Mafia shootout.

The stories are brought together through innovative, book within a book, design. Bound together are Spada’s photographs documenting adolescence in the land of Camorrah (the name for the Mafia in Naples) and pages detailing the police investigation.

Old Photos 1947-70

Ed van der Elsken dove into his extensive archive in the late seventies to compile a book of his black-and-white images of Amsterdam, the city in which he had always lived, with the exception of 1950-1954. He often worked in the neighbourhood of his house on Koningstraat, taking photos on the Nieuwmarkt, Zeedijk and Waterlooplein. Atmospheric images of the fifties, the riots during the turbulent sixties, lots of people, young people, but also architecture and degradation in the old city centre. From the foreword by Ed van der Elsken: ‘My Amsterdam. My Amsterdam-ers. Often friends that you’d say “Hey mate” to, or “Hey, me old mucker”, or “Hi love”. People from respectable neighbourhoods, the Nieuwmarkt, the Zeedijk, the wallen, the Nieuwendijk, the Haarlemmerstraat, the Jordaan, the Jodenbuurt, the Kinkerbuurt, the Pijp, the Eilanden, Wittenburg, Kattenburg. People that never go to the Apollolaan or the Goudkust, or perhaps only as the milkman, or as a burglar.’

Picture of Tales from the City of Gold

Publisher's Description

In his most wide-ranging photographic project to date, Larkin explores the vast waste dumps created by Johannesburg’s historic gold-mining industry, territory where history, economy and contemporary South Africa collide. 


His sensitive landscapes of life on these incongruous manmade monuments, remnants of Africa’s most successful mining story, highlight the ignored realities of these spaces, and the denial of the environmental legacy which it has left behind.


Jason Larkin (b. 1979 in the UK) is regularly internationally published and recently was awarded the Arnold Newman New Portraiture Award. He was nominated for both the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize and Prix Pictet photography awards for Cairo Divided, a freely-distributed publication. Exhibitions include the Brighton Photo Biennial, Farnsworth Art Museum, Maine, and Flowers Gallery, London. This publication was supported by Falmouth College of Arts, UK.

Picture of Testament

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

Publisher's Description

Testament is a collection of photographs and writing by late photojournalist Chris Hondros spanning over a decade of coverage from most of the world's conflicts since the late 1990s, including Kosovo, Afghanistan, the West Bank, Iraq, Liberia, Egypt, and Libya.

Through Hondros' images, we witness a jubilant Liberian rebel fighter exalt during a firefight, a U.S. Marine remove Saddam Hussein's portrait from an Iraqi classroom, American troops ride confidently in a thin-skinned unarmored Humvee during the first months of the Iraq war, "the probing eyes of an Afghan village boy," and "rambunctious Iraqi schoolgirls enjoying their precious few years of relative freedom before aging into more restricted adulthoods."

Hondros was not just a front-line war photographer, but also a committed observer and witness, and his work humanizes complex world events and brings to light shared human experiences. Evident in his writings, interspersed throughout, Hondros was determined to broaden our understanding of war and its consequences.

This unyielding determination led Hondros to take dozens of trips to Iraq and Afghanistan, even as the news turned elsewhere. During these "routine" trips, Hondros examined and observed daily life in these war-torn societies. His inventive Humvee picture series frames the ever-changing landscapes of these countries, offering a glimpse into the daily lives of those most affected by conflict.

"One of the ongoing themes in my work, I hope, and one of the things I believe in, is a sense of human nature, a sense of shared humanity above the cultural layers we place on ourselves [which don't] mean that much compared to the human experience." —Chris Hondros

As a photographer working in the world's most difficult and dangerous places, Chris Hondros had the distinctive ability to connect his viewers with people embroiled in far-flung and sometimes obscure conflicts. He recognized the shared humanity among those affected by war, regardless of culture or beliefs, and he was determined to share their challenges to the wider world in the hope of provoking thought, raising awareness, and fostering understanding.

In the introduction to the book, Getty Images co-founder and CEO Jonathan Klein writes, "Chris believed that his work could and would make a difference. He dedicated and ultimately lost his life in pursuit of that belief. I have no doubt that Chris was correct. Images can and do influence public opinion, galvanize people and societies, and force governments to change. They bring much-needed focus and attention to the suffering of people who are otherwise unable to communicate their plight."

Picture of Bikeriders Photographs

Publisher's Description

First published in 1968, The Bikeriders explores firsthand the stories and characters of the Chicago Outlaws Motorcycle Club. The journal-size title features original black-and-white photographs and transcribed interviews made from 1963 to 1967, when Danny Lyon was a member of the Outlaws gang. Authentic, personal, and uncompromising, Lyon’s depiction of individuals on the outskirts of society offers a gritty yet humanistic view that subverts the commercialized image of Americana. Akin to the documentary style of 1960s-era New Journalism, made famous by writers such as Joan Didion, Hunter S. Thompson, and Tom Wolfe, Lyon’s work demonstrates humanitarian interests, advocacy, and “saturation reporting.” The importance of his work and our interest in the subject is reinforced by Lyon’s immersion in his subject.

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

Publisher's Description

The acute observation, wit and colour of Martin Parr's work since the mid-1980s has established him as one of the most successful and popular contemporary photographers and a leading member of the prestigious Magnum agency. The only comprehensive monograph of Martin Parr's entire career to date, this second edition has been updated with completely new photographs and three new chapters assessing his most recent photographic work, as well as his expansion into the fields of curating, collecting and editing.

Beginning with Martin Parr's early black and white work, and moving through the development into his signature colour-saturated photographs, this newly updated monograph provides a complete overview of the acclaimed Magnum photographer's career to date. By placing the everyday at centre stage, Parr is best known for his sharp and witty visual chronicling of British (and later, global) idiosyncrasies. Parr's photographs have received popular acclaim, provoked controversy, and been applauded for their critical observations of the world we have built and inhabit.

Val Williams charts Parr's development as a photographer, from his early inspirations and outings with his grandfather, through his student days in Manchester and experimentation with documentary and art photography, to his sharply critical observations of the effects on global consumerism on our daily lives. Williams assesses contemporary reactions to his work as well as the social contexts in which the photographs were made. While she worked in close collaboration with Parr, having full access to his archives and based on extensive interviews with him, she retains a critical distance with which to evaluate his work and his public persona as a 'controversial' photographer.

Each illustrated chapter text is followed by an extensive section of spreads of his work. The book also offers a holistic view of his practice - with sections on his publications and collections of souvenirs and ephemera that have continued to inform his photographic practice.

Publisher's Description

In 2003 a sudden development of severe Environmental Illness forced Thilde Jensen to leave her life in New York City. The ensuing years were a lesson in basic survival.

Retreating to the woods for sanctuary, Jensen would have to wear a respirator whenever she returned to civilization. To her surprise, an otherwise invisible subculture of people who shared this isolated existence began to emerge.

She later travelled the desert of the American Southwest, where many with Environmental Illness live as refugees from a chemical and electrical world they can no longer inhabit.

The Canaries is an intimate journey through a hypersensitive dimension of reality, where old cars, aluminum foil, masks and home-made phones become key necessities for survival. The book is an authentic photographic documentation of life on the edge of modern civilization, but reads almost as fiction set in the borderland between dream and nightmare.

Picture of Moments in Between

"Moments in Between is an impressive example of the new, artistically aware photojournalism. It deals with the murderous break-up of Yugoslavia following the erosion of the communist bloc...Lasthein, typically, does not look at these vicious conflicts directly, but like a nineteenth-century photographer he documents the landscape of war rather than the war itself. In a series of luscious, even lyrical landscapes taken in Serbia, Croatia, Kosovo, Bosnia and Macedonia, he documents an urban topography and a social landscape blighted by war -- scarred buildings, wrecked cars, piles of rubble; yet on the streets daily life continues as routinely as possible -- women shop, children play, men work. This is the reality of a war zone: long, uneasy moments of no fighting, menaced by the continual threat of further violence. Thus Lasthein deals with the poetry rather than the hyperbole of war. He is concerned 'with daily life in the shadow of a war. Between shellings, after ethnic cleansing, or before a shot is fired.'"
