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.

Publisher's Description
‘Where I Find Myself’ is the first major single book retrospective of one of America’s leading photographers. As the title indicates, it is organized in inverse chronological order and spans the photographer's whole career to date. It covers all of Meyerowitz’s great projects: his work inspired by the artist Morandi, his work on trees, his exclusive coverage of Ground Zero, his trips in the footsteps of Robert Frank across the US, his experiments comparing colour and black and white pictures, and of course his iconic street photography work. The text is all by Joel Meyerowitz himself and the book coincides with a major retrospective show in Berlin.

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.

Picture of The Street Philosophy of Garry Winogrand

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.

Publisher's Description
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.’

Picture of Nordic Noir

Publisher's Description

Captivated by the Scandinavian lands from a residence in Norway, Sébastien Van Malleghem has since advanced his travels from Denmark to Iceland, passing through Finland and Sweden. Nordic Noir is the visual recital of this contrasting trek.

With breath-taking and timeless landscapes, scenes of life and harsh portraits, the series is closer to a constellation than a linear path. In the explosion of emotions that is the series, the photographer finds the right balance between the sublime and the banal, between the grandiose and the intimate.

Leaning towards reverie in this work, Sébastien Van Malleghem’s eye remains sharp and keen; just as well when the scenery lends itself to pure contemplation, to the exhilaration of large spaces, to the experience of solitude where he captures a carefree and unbridled youthfulness that lays itself unreservedly open in front of the lens.

A graduate of the school ‘Le75’ in Brussels in 2009, this young photographer already has several reportages hailed by international critiques under his belt. His incisive and sombre visual writing, along with an unswerving commitment and determination, make him one of the most compelling young talents of recent years.

Since 2008, he has been producing projects at an almost dizzying pace. Among them are “Police”, adventures of a night squad; “Prisons”, a true immersion in the prison system; “The Ruins of the power”, a foray into post-Gadaffi Lybia; “The Last shelter”, on junkies, the homeless and others left to the streets of Berlin; and “Deposito Temporal”, in Mexico’s morgues.

In “Nordic Noir”, a series started in 2012, in parallel to his other works, his documentary style gives way to a more poetic and introspective dimension.

Picture of The Recent Past

Publisher's Description

In 1972 James Ravilious moved with his wife to North Devon, her childhood home. Soon afterwards he was hired by the Beaford Centre to start a photographic archive recording the landscape and people of the area. This part of Devon clung to its traditional life for longer than many other parts of Britain, and although his photographs were taken as recently as the 1970s or 1980s, they capture a way of life that is vanishing, or has vanished.
 

At first his brief was purely documentary, but his work transcends mere record. By confining himself mostly to a radius of ten miles from his home, he was able to develop an intimacy with his subjects that is rare among photographers. Nearly everyone in this book has a name.


James Ravilious took almost 80,000 photographs for the Beaford Centre, creating an archive that may be unique in its comprehensiveness; but his artistry and empathy also caused it to contain some of the greatest photographs ever taken of rural life in Britain.

Publisher's Dsecription

Josef Koudelka started using a camera in panoramic format in 1986 while participating in the photographic mission of the DATAR, whose objective was to “represent the French landscape of the 1980s”. He thus criss-crossed France, then the entire world, to take stock of modern humanity’s influence on landscape. This book, with an original, raw binding and an imposing format, gathers 40 panoramic photographs selected by the artist with the complicity of François Hébel.

These images bear witness to major human works, ranging from factories to quarries, or enormous mining complexes and abandoned zones. They carry the reader into inaccessible and little-known areas, between sublime and disarray, to witness the imposing reality of industry that we try now to erase.

A text by François Hébel gives an overview of Koudelka’s photographic journey and his fascination for industrial landscapes over 30 years whereas François Barré’s essay contextualizes this ensemble into the history of landscape.

Edition of 750. Signed copies.

Travelling is the broadening of horizons in hope of betterment. In the story of American settlement this process is both physical and metaphorical. Settlers struck out in search of new horizons; visions of a landscape from which they hoped to enclose a new life. The Oregon Trail was one such journey.

Now the landscape is fenced, with the people in it, the terrain has been charted and limitless opportunity capped, but yearning remains. In a sense America has never stopped travelling west; whilst the pursuit of happiness leads toward an ever-receding goal, people wait for greener grass.

Picture of The Englishman and the Eel (Signed)

Publisher's Description

The Englishman and the Eel is a journey into that most London of institutions, the Eel, Pie and Mash shop. Today, these simple spaces hold within them the memories of a rich, largely undocumented cultural heritage of generations of working-class Londoners in a city whose only constant is change.

Stuart Freedman grew up in East London in the 1970s, then a byword for poverty now a metaphor for gentrification. The streets were navigated by pubs, rough, cheap cafés and Eel, Pie and Mash shops. Often elaborately decorated with ornate Victorian tiling, many sold live eels in metal trays that faced out onto the street to the fascination (and sometimes horror) of passersby. Inside, warmth and comfort. Steam. Tea. Laughter. Families.

Now few in number, the shops are havens for what the East End once was – but this is no rosy description of the Cockney – that music hall, heart-of-gold caricature but an affectionate and serious look at what that culture and its people have evolved into. The Englishman and the Eel is not an encyclopaedic record of every shop. Rather, a document of the most interesting and significant ones to make a book that is a tribute to a timeless institution. For Stuart Freedman the eel and its decline is a metaphor of the cultural change that has enveloped the East End. What remains is a tenacious and rare creature – endangered – but still surviving.

With unique access to the most intriguing and enduring legends of our time, Harry Benson: Persons of Interest is a compelling masterpiece of photojournalism and portraiture.

Celebrating Benson’s 60+ year career and featuring photographs spanning his early years on London’s Fleet Street to his arrival in New York in 1964 with the Beatles, to marching with Martin Luther King during the Civil Rights movement, to being present at RFK’s assassination, to scores of Hollywood and music and sports legends, and right up to the present as the only person who has photographed the last twelve Presidents from Eisenhower to Trump, Benson’s unparalleled magnum opus is to be published following the massive success of the Magnolia Pictures documentary film, Harry Benson: Shoot First (2016).

Picture of Framing Community: Magnum Photos, 1947 – Present

Publisher's Description

Founded in 1947 on the shared belief in humanist values, the Magnum photo agency has mostly focused on a transient world in times of unrest, collapsing social structures and polarising politics. This volume is being published to mark the 70th anniversary of the agency. A careful selection of images from this cooperative photo agency sheds new light on Magnum according to one important theme: community.

Community is marked by diversity, conflicts and ruptures, and yet we cling to the sometimes nostalgic-seeming idea of the harmonious coexistence of man. This volume celebrates this history with over 100 photographs from Magnum taken over the past 70 years. It features pictures of dramatic events of world history to quiet, private insights into our daily lives. The works in this volume prove the long-lasting power of Magnum, showing the empathy and engagement of photographers as they framed distant and unfamiliar communities.

With photographs by David Seymour, Josef Koudelka, Susan Meiselas, René Burri, Alessandra Sanguinetti, Carl De Keyzer, Alec Soth, Bruce Davidson, Paul Fusco, Larry Towell, Thomas Hoepker, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Jim Goldberg, Alex Webb, Bieke Depoorter, Peter van Agtmael, Bruno Barbey.

In this book, the authors explore and discuss the development of one of the most interesting and dynamic of photographic genres. Hailed as a landmark work when it was first published in 1994, Bystander is widely regarded by street photographers as the ‘bible’ of street photography. It covers an incredible array of talent, from the unknowns of the late 19th century to the acknowledged masters of the 20th, such as Atget, Stieglitz, Strand, Cartier-Bresson, Brassai, Kertesz, Frank, Arbus, Winogrand and Levitt to name just a few. In this new and fully revised edition, the story of street photography is brought up to date with a re-evaluation of some historical material, the inclusion of more contemporary photographers and a discussion of the ongoing rise of digital photography.

For the last seven years, Jim has been photographing the lives of people in his community who, through physical and mental problems and a failing social security system, face isolation and loneliness in their daily lives. His work covers difficult subjects such as disability, addiction and self-harm, but is always with hope and dignity, focusing upon the strength and resilience of the people he photographs.

Picture of Preston Bus Station

Publisher's Description

It was while living in Preston in 2010 that the city’s imposing Brutalist bus station, built by Ove Arup and Partners in 1969, first caught Hawkesworth’s eye. “I did a project with Adam Murray, an ex-tutor of mine, where we spent the weekend at the bus station and produced a little newspaper filled with portraits of the teenagers we saw there”.  A few years later when Hawkesworth heard of plans to demolish the iconic building he determined to "move back to Preston for a month and spend every day in the bus station taking photographs. The station is one big loop, and I just walked around it all day, every day, just waiting for people to pop out at me. I tried not to think about it any more than that, it was just whoever would catch my eye in a particular moment. It was a centre for Megabus so if a bus comes from up North, it goes through Preston to go South, so there was always an influx of really interesting people coming through the station. When I found someone, I’d ask to take their portrait and that was it. To a certain extent, I was trying to be spontaneous about it; whether it was an old man, a kid with a funny haircut or interesting shoes – I just let anything be photographed.”

After seven years since Hawkesworth began the project his first monograph Preston Bus Station will be published this fall by Dashwood Books while he prepares for a major exhibition "Landscape with Tree, 14 rooms by Jamie Hawkesworth" at Huis Marseille, Museum of Photography in Amsterdam.

Publisher's Description

In the process of decommunisation, Ukraine has toppled all its Lenin monuments. This book documents the inglorious fate of these Soviet statues, following their often violent removal.

Photographer Niels Ackermann and journalist Sébastien Gobert have scoured the country in search of the remains of these toppled figures. They are found in the most unlikely places: Lenin inhabits gardens, scrap yards and store rooms. He has fallen on hard times –  cut into pieces, daubed with paint, turned into a Cossack or Darth Vader. Yet despite every attempt to reduce their status, the monuments retain a sinister quality, resisting all efforts to separate them from their history.

From Cornwall to Lancashire, Spencer photographed teens goers as they drank, danced and fell in and out of love and lust.

“Today we stay younger longer and become grown up sooner. The successes of making any sort of story around youth is to recognise that we’ve all been there at sometime in our lives. Being a Teenager is life a concentrated moment of the human condition - all of the successes and pitfalls all being played out in one messy drama.” - Ewen Spence

Picture of St Kilda: The Silent Islands

Publisher's Description

Rising up dramatically from the Atlantic Ocean, the island archipelago of St Kilda is often celebrated as the most remote location in the British Isles.

Forty miles from the Outer Hebrides, the main island of Hirta contains the highest sea cliffs in UK, and the remains of a village famous for its evacuation of 1930.

While this marked the end of a way of life, the islands have often been obscured in myth and romance. With a series of images made over several years, and following many visits out to the islands using a camera which once belonged to Fay Godwin, Alex Boyd’s new book seeks to challenge these perceptions.

Documenting the wild and now deserted landscape of the island of St Kilda, Boyd illuminates much about the island’s shadowy history and about the communities which have inhabited it.

This book of stunning photography contains a preface by Murdo Macdonald HRSA, a hard-hitting essay on the myth and reality of St Kilda by the islands’ archaeologist, Dr Kevin Grant, and poetry by the acclaimed Gerry Cambridge.
