Picture of she dances on Jackson (Signed)

Publisher's Description

The reprint of this hugely successful 2013 book coincides with a retrospective of the work of Vanessa Winship at the Barbican Art Gallery in London from June to September 2018.

In 2011 Vanessa Winship was the recipient of the Henri Cartier Bresson Award which funds an artist to pursue a new photographic project. For over a year Winship travelled across the United States, from California to Virginia, New Mexico to Montana, in pursuit of the fabled ‘American dream’. she dances on Jackson presents a conversation, a lyrical and lilting interaction between landscape and portrait exploring the vastness of the United States and attempting to understand the link between a territory and its inhabitants. For Winship this relationship is inextricable; places accrue particular meanings according to the people she meets, what she sees, and by what's happening to her personally. Each human encounter, sound and smell adds extra dimensions to her work and the resulting photographs.

she dances on Jackson marks a progression. Stylistically similar to her previous work using black and white film and a large format camera, Winship’s portraits remain arresting and unnerving but this body of work reveals her to also be a skilled landscape photographer. For Winship photography is a process of literacy, a path by which she understands life. Her intimate approach enables the reader to glimpse the world as she sees it, if only for a moment.

Picture of The Tree of Life is Eternally Green

Publisher's Description

An intimate notebook of documentary work undertaken in Romania, exploring the country's landscape and integral connections its inhabitants have with nature. Martínez and Sáez travelled more than 6000km photographing mostly in rural areas, meeting with local people along the way. Their exploration encompasses winter through summer seasons, with the guiding theme that since the first inhabitants of Europe populated fertile Romanian lands, the spirit of Romanian society has been instinctively linked to the land.

Romania has a complex history where its people have struggled to claim territory, faced brutal oppression, communist nationalisation, and foreign exploitation of resources and agriculture. The central region of Transylvania was claimed at the end of the First World War, extending the country’s wealth of natural resources from the border with Ukraine to the Danube Valley. Industrialisation increased exponentially from the 1950s to 1980s and the effects had a massive impact on the economy, social progress, and the landscape. But Romanians have been resilient in the face of progress and adversity, and since the fall of communism in 1989 the country has seen an intellectual revival and a return to practicing long-held traditions. For over 15 years in a conflict in Roşia Montană, public administration and environmental organizations have confronted a mining company in a fight to keep their natural environment free from continued over-exploitation.

In The Tree of Life is Eternally Green, Martinez and Saez focus on identity and history from a perspective that transcends socio-political issues, and dispels stereotypes associated with Romanians. Their record is seeped in the natural environment and celebrates Romanian people, their traditions, the untamed landscape and the country’s rich flora.

Picture of Out of the Darkness

Publisher's Description

In 1966, Joel Meyerowitz took an initiatory journey around Europe. Upon his return to New York, he submitted his project to the Head of Photography at MoMA, leading to his monographic exhibition My European Trip. Meyerowitz toured around Spain in 1966 an 1967 and took hundreds of pictures that comprise an exceptional document of 1960's Spain. He admits that this time in Spain was precisely what marked his creative turning point as a photographer-indeed this is the one period when he takes both colour and black and white photographs before fully turning to colour photography.

Picture of Exit

Publisher's Description

Isabelle Graeff (born 1977 in Heidelberg) became known in 2010 for her series My Mother And I. For this project she spent years accompanying her mother with a camera, in order to question the relationship between mother and child. The photographs for her project Exit now expand the search for identity to an entirely new country. Between August 2015 and June 2016 the London-based photographer observed with a compassionate eye the crisis of a country whose population has been painfully divided since the Brexit referendum at the very latest. A country divided between people whose gaze is directed outward and people who are looking inward. A country that has again begun a new search for an identity that already exists in all of its mystical beauty, because its nature remains untouched by social developments.

Graeff traces these upheavals, changes, and developments with her camera. The critic Niklas Maak has written an insightful essay about this, which contextualizes the images on various levels.

Picture of The Gamblers

Publisher's Description

The Gamblers has been a long running project for Martin Amis, who has made pictures of racegoers over a number of years. RRB is pleased to be finally bringing this work to the public in book form in 2018.

Martin Amis’ photobook The Gamblers is the culmination of his long-term project photographing at racecourses across the South of England. The Gamblers is an affectionate portrait of the racing crowd, a well-informed tribe of racing enthusiasts, from a quirky mix of class and social backgrounds, who come together to find the next winner. Martin immersed himself in the racing crowds, camera at the ready, often betting himself as he sought his next subject. Despite covering so many races over more than a decade with a variety of cameras and shooting strategies, Martin has skillfully collected his images into a single story. Filled with moments of gentle humour, The Gamblers will take you from highs to lows, through moments of tension to the frenetic and jubilant energy of the holding the winning slip. “One of my fondest childhood memories is my regular trips to the races with my father. I loved to watch the horses race, but I loved even more to watch the motley cast of characters betting on them. The stench of beer and tobacco would fill the air, bookmakers’ chants of the latest odds cut through the gamblers lively conversations as I helped my father place his bets. I loved every moment and continued to gamble and enjoy horseracing into my adult life. As a photographer, it was a very obvious subject to focus my camera lens upon. - Martin Amis

Picture of Errance

Errance consists of vertical black and white photographs of empty, unidentifiable roads and places. The format restricted Raymond Depardon to taking certain photographs and not others, and to moving away from the people he met during his travels. However they are not landscape pictures either. “They are stills from an imaginary film that could have been made. Only instead of being horizontal, this movie’s screen would be turned on its end.” A sort of corridor with too much sky and too much ground that reveals a viewpoint without deforming it.

Publisher's Description

How should we live on this planet? Can we lead fulfilling lives whilst sustaining the environment on which we depend for our wellbeing and sustenance?

In a world increasingly dedicated to material consumption, driven by a sense of entitlement to exploit nature without limit, these questions have become critical.

Settlements is a photographic record of a small number of communities and individuals, based in Britain, who are quietly building and exploring alternative land-based, low impact ways of living, that address these issues and dilemmas.

Taken between 2004 and 2015, the photographs chart a period in their evolution and growth seen through their homes, infrastructure and community portraits. They are accompanied by introductions written by the communities, and texts by the author that explore connected historical and contemporary issues.

Together they reveal a way of life that challenges the mainstream, suggesting different narratives for the future and contributing to our collective imagination.

Picture of How to make a book with Carlos Saura & Steidl

Publisher's Description

This documentary film shows the story of creating Carlos Saura’s Vanished Spain, a book of Saura’s photos of Andalusia and central Spain in the late 1950s, and published by Steidl in 2016. As a young man the great Spanish film director Saura didn’t quite know what he wanted to become: a motorcycle racer, flamenco dancer or a photographer. 60 years, 40 films and numerous awards later, film has proven Saura’s focus yet his passion for photography runs like a thread throughout his career and life. Indeed his studio in Madrid today resembles a photographic museum, packed with curiosities, vintage Leicas and self-made cameras.

When publishers Hans Meinke and Gerhard Steidl set out to publish Saura’s largely unknown photographic oeuvre, they did not anticipate discovering the compelling landscapes, villages, bullfights and people of another era that comprise Saura’s personal portrait of 1950s Spain and transgress the propaganda imagery of the Franco regime. Neither did they expect the twists and turns of creating the book with Saura, an artist who resolutely calls himself a “photographic amateur.” How to make a book with Carlos Saura & Steidl reveals how photos become a photobook, and leaves open the amusing question of who of Saura, Meinke and Steidl were ultimately the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in their two-year-long creative process.

"Timing is of the essence but a serious amount of good luck and a decent quality crystal ball are necessary" - Carl De Keyzer in The Guardian

When it comes to foreign visitors or artists, North Korea must be the most restrictive country in the world. Nevertheless, Carl De Keyzer managed to cross the entire country in 42 days, divided into three journeys. In his latest book, Magnum photographer Carl De Keyzer points his lens at North Korea, officially the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, the last communist state in the world from an ideological, political and cultural perspective. De Keyzer is one of very few photographers who got almost-unlimited access to the country. He photographed more than 200 different locations, many of which had never been captured on camera before. The 250 photos that form his 'Grand Tour' - taken on marches, at the shooting range, in the subway and in family homes - are a testament to this country's uniqueness.

Carl De Keyzer has been a member of the renowned photo agency Magnum since 1994. His pictures have been published and exhibited all over the world. Regular themes in his work are the permanent threat of decline in a modern civilisation and the impact of power on daily life.

Picture of On Abortion

Publisher's Description

"this heartbreaking book is a must have" - Rémi Coignet

"splendid cohesion between text, ephemera, photography and design" - Rob Hornstra

Under ‘natural’ circumstances, the average woman would get pregnant about 15 times in her life, resulting in ten births. Seven of those babies would survive childhood. For centuries, people have searched for ways to delay or terminate pregnancy. Today, safe and efficient means of abortion finally exist, yet women around the world continue to use ancient, illegal or risky home methods: Every year, 47,000 women die from botched abortions.

Across many countries and religions, millions of women are still denied access to abortion by the law or by social coercion. They are forced to carry pregnancies to term against their will, even minors and rape victims, and for many the pregnancy is not viable or poses a health risk. But all can be criminalized for trying to abort.

On Abortion is the first part of Laia Abril’s new long-term project, A History of Misogyny. The work was first exhibited at Les Rencontres in Arles in 2016 and awarded the Prix de la Photo Madame Figaro and the Fotopress Grant. Abril documents and conceptualizes the dangers and damage caused by women’s lack of legal, safe and free access to abortion. She draws on the past to highlight the long, continuing erosion of women’s reproductive rights through to the present-day, weaving together questions of ethics and morality, to reveal a staggering series of social triggers, stigmas, and taboos around abortion that have been largely invisible until now.

Laia Abril is a visual artist, photographer and bookmaker from Barcelona. After graduating in Journalism, she enrolled at FABRICA – the Benneton artist residency; where she worked at COLORS Magazine as a creative editor and staff photographer for 5 years. Her projects have been shown throughout Europe, in the United States, and in China and have been published in media worldwide. Her work is held in many private and public collections. Her first book with Dewi Lewis Publishing, the critically acclaimed The Epilogue (2014), was shortlisted for the Paris Photo-Aperture First Book Award, Kassel PhotoBook Festival and the Photo España Best Book Award.

Picture of Battleship Island

Publisher's Description

In July 2015, MAKIKO was granted rare permission to photograph the restricted zone of Battleship Island, shortly after it was recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage site. The tiny, fortress-like island (also known as ’Hashima’ or ‘Gunkanjima’) lies just off the coast of Nagasaki. Ringed by a seawall, and covered in tightly packed buildings, it was once the most densely populated place on Earth. Now it is a ghost town – completely uninhabited for more than forty years.

From 1887 onwards, its network of undersea coalmines became important during Japan’s rapid industrialisation. But it also has a dark period in its history: from the 1930s through to the end of the Second World War forced labour was introduced. The 2017 Korean film The Battleship Island depicts a fictional story based on the plight of Korean miners brought there. The island also featured as a dramatic location in the 2012 James Bond film, Skyfall.

Abandoned in 1974, all that now remains is the dramatic sea wall that surrounds it, and its tightly packed, concrete buildings, undisturbed except by nature. In the book, archive photographs break the eerie silence of the island’s contemporary landscape and through the memories of a former resident of the island, MAKIKO brings her imagination to bear on what life was like there as a child – a place described to her as a childhood paradise.

MAKIKO is an international award-winning photographer and author. Born in Japan, she has lived, studied and worked in Japan, France, UK, North America and Switzerland. She studied photography at the International Center of Photography in New York and since 2006 her work has been exhibited in Japan, North America and Europe.

Designed by leading UK book designers SMITH DESIGN, Battleship Island is MAKIKO’s second book; her first, Beautifully Different, was a collaboration with Dr. Rebecca Landa of the Kennedy Krieger Institute, to raise awareness of high-functioning autism.

Picture of War is Only Half the Story

Publisher's Description

with poems by Nobel Laureate, Wislawa Szymborska
texts by Clare Cavanagh, Donald Weber and Sara Terry
and photographs by more than forty Aftermath Award winners

“The end of war does not mean peace. It is simply the end of death and destruction. Every story of war includes a chapter that almost always goes untold – the story of the aftermath, which day by day becomes the prologue of the future.” – Sara Terry / Founder, The Aftermath Project.

“War is Only Half the Story” is a ten-year retrospective of the work of the groundbreaking documentary photography program, The Aftermath Project, which for a decade has supported post-conflict storytelling by some of the world’s best photographers. As a grant-making educational non-profit, The Aftermath Project was founded to help change the way the media covers conflict – and to educate the public about the true cost of war and the real price of peace.

Using the post-conflict poetry of Nobel Laureate Wislawa Szymborska as themes for each chapter, “War is Only Half the Story” draws on the work of 53 Aftermath Project grant winners and finalists from around the world to explore post-conflict stories that all too often go untold.

Sara Terry is a documentary photographer and filmmaker, and a Guggenheim Fellow in Photography, who began The Aftermath Project while working on her first post-conflict photography project, “Aftermath: Bosnia’s Long Road to Peace”. In a post-9/11 world, she wanted to encourage other photographers to concentrate on post-conflict storytelling.

Aftermath Project grant winners featured in the book include Jim Goldberg, Nina Berman, Jessica Hines, Stanley Greene, Kathryn Cook, Justyna Mielnikiewicz, Danny Wilcox Frazier, Adam Patterson, Rodrigo Abd, Donald Weber, Simon Brann Thorpe, Monika Bulaj, Luca Locatelli, Isabel Kiesewetter, Bruno Boudjelal, Louie Palu, Juan Arredondo and Davide Monteleone.

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

Publisher's Description

Garry Winogrand—along with Diane Arbus and Lee Friedlander—was one of the most important photographers of the 1960s and 1970s, as well as one of the world’s foremost street photographers. Award-winning writer Geoff Dyer has admired Winogrand’s work for many years. Modeled on John Szarkowski’s classic book Atget, The Street Philosophy of Garry Winogrand is a masterfully curated selection of one hundred photographs from the Winogrand archive at the Center for Creative Photography, with each image accompanied by an original essay.

Dyer takes the viewer/reader on a wildly original journey through both iconic and unseen images from the archive, including eighteen previously unpublished color photographs. The book encompasses most of Winogrand’s themes and subjects and remains broadly faithful to the chronological and geographical facts of his life, but Dyer’s responses to the photographs are unorthodox, eye-opening, and often hilarious. This inimitable combination of photographer and writer, images and text, itself offers what Dyer claims for Winogrand’s photography—an education in seeing.

In December 1974, Paul Trevor came to Liverpool as a member of the Exit Photography Group: three young photographers collaborating on a project to document life in Britain’s inner cities. Paul stayed for six months photographing the hardships faced by people, particularly children, at a time of economic decline and social unrest. In 1982, some of his photographs were published in Survival Programmes: In Britain’s Inner Cities – a book of Exit’s work that is now regarded as one of the most significant documentary projects of its time. In 2011, National Museums Liverpool organized an exhibition of Paul’s work, most of which had remained unseen and unpublished. The show at the Walker Art Gallery attracted 64,000 visitors. People expressed their reactions in the Gallery’s comment books. Four books were filled. Here is a small sample:

‘Social documentary at its finest. One of the best collections I have seen’.

‘My mum once said she felt guilty for all the things I didn’t have as a child. I never felt like I’d missed having anything. These photos remind me why. Thank you.’

‘Fantastic, emotive, honest, humorous documentary of Liverpool. A beautiful piece of history.’

‘A rare and beautiful discovery for me. Your book is wonderful and must rank among the greatest books of street photography I have ever seen.’
