Picture of Civil Dawns, The

Publisher's Description

British artist Darren Almond has been known for his works using variety of media, including sculpture, films as well as photography. This The Civil Dawns consists of 2 photographic series. “Civil Dawn@Giverny” is a series of photographs taken in the Claude Monet’s garden at Giverny in the winter and summer, while “Civil Dawn@Mt. Hiei” photographed foggy Mt. Hiei. Images of both series are captured by exposing to the momentary light of the break of dawn. Releasing its brilliance, “Civil Dawn@Giverny” depicts momentary, spontaneous faces of flowers in Monet’s garden at the very moment a day breaks. Those pictures, photographed with large-format Polaroid, which apparatus is discontinued already, seem like homage to the Impressionist.
“Civil Dawn@Mt. Hiei” is a series produced in Japan, where Almond has taken particular interests in its culture and drawn his inspiration to works. He has visited Japan several times since 1990s and created numbers of works adopting the ideas he got through sceneries seen and incidents encountered during his visits. The morning twilight Almond pictured charms us with its gentle lights, recalls our nostalgia, although no humans are appeared in the pictures. Time is unchanging and eternal – while his masterwork, installation of timepieces, symbolically implies accurate passage of time, Almond contrarily sheds light on the twinkling of momentariliness in these series. Coloured with 2 pigments from the original prints, these two series are mingled and presenting another fascination here in this book.

Publisher's Description

The texts and images presented here are part of Blossom, a collaboration between the artist Thomas Demand and writer Ben Lerner. The images relate to a detail from a photograph of Katherine Russell, widow of Tamerlan Anzorovich Tsarnaev leaving her home in Boston, that first appeared in the New York Times on 4 May 2013.

Thomas Demand’s work lures the viewer into a reality that is not what it appears to be. Carefully contrived from paper, these imaginary worlds are sculpted, photographed and destroyed. The traces which remain are events in which the protagonist is removed, scenes that are both familiar and out of reach. Demand’s work has been shown extensively across the world and is included in most of the significant private and institutional collections. Recent books include The Dallies (MACK, 2012) and Model Studies (Ivory Press, 2011).

Picture of The Gardener

Publisher's Description

'The Gardener’, is the winning project of the inaugural Syngenta Photography Award. Photographed by Jan Brykczynski, it is an extension of his previous projects in which he travelled to the outer corners of Europe to explore the lives of people in rural areas. This new work looks at how city dwellers try to connect with nature.

The book documents urban gardens in Nairobi, New York, Warsaw, and Yerevan in Armenia. Brykczynski approaches it as if the world were a single village, whose inhabitants seek to meet similar, and very human, needs. His focus is on low-income communities where people respond to a basic need rather than any passing fad. When they create their gardens, improvisation is all. The residents of these neighbourhoods make use of what is available – often re-using materials entirely out of context and in truly original ways.

His particular interest is the way in which these spaces are arranged and in how structures for cultivation are created spontaneously. In some places these are an expression of group collaboration, in others they highlight individual imagination and the inventiveness of their creators. Yet there are surprising similarities across different continents, evidencing a collective consciousness and a common humanity.

Picture of Giverny Polaroids

Publisher's Description

"Except for painting and garden­ing, I’m useless", Claude Monet wrote to a friend, preferring a life in Giverny, 3 km away from ­Vernon on the Seine downstream from Paris. He went there in 1883, initially remodelled the home and garden complex and made an ­ornamental garden out of Clos Normand. Later, in 1893, he bought a large area across the street, now the Chemin du Roy, where he could create his famous water lily pond and the Japanese bridge, which would be the key motif in his work from 1897 until his death on 5 December 1926. The street is partly the reason why there was no other view of the bridge for Monet, and it is said that he had his gardeners wiped the dust of the lilies every day, until he finally had the road asphalted at his own expense. Darren Almond, born in 1971, now lives in London and works mostly on elaborate photographs taken under a full moon. He has progressed through his participation in 1997 at the legend­ary exhibition »Sensation« via the Pavilion at the ­Venice Biennale in 2003 and not least by his nomination  in 2005 for the Turner Price to become one of the outstanding British contemporary artists. After his exhibition at the Villa Merkel and the resulting cassette »Nocturne«, this publication, which contains new photographs of Monet’s garden, emphasises the sculptural floral motifs in Darren Almond’s photographic work. Also, the individual flower photographs can be separated from the book block, which is protected by a translucent plastic cover, in which a small signed picture of a polaroid with the ­famous lily pond has been inserted.

Picture of Mushrooms from the Forest

Publisher's Description

Photographer Takashi Homma takes us on a journey deep into densely wooded areas in search of the many different types of fungus that grow there. More the collection of a curious wanderer than a serious hobbyist, the unidentified mushrooms are photographed against sterile white backgrounds as if recently plucked from the forest floor, with soil, bark and even small creatures still attached. The fungal portraits are interspersed with images of the forest itself, as if providing a natural context – a sense of actually being there – with surroundings of lichen covered trees, dense leafage, and the natural interplay of shadow and light.

Picture of Encyclopedia of Flowers: Flower Works by Makoto Azuma

Publisher's Description

Encyclopedia of Flowers is a visual exploration of the breathtaking floral arrangements by Makoto Azuma—encounters of unusual, sometimes exotic plants that wouldn’t typically occur in nature. With his meticulously composed photographs,
Shunsuke Shiinoki exposes the flowers’ tenuous existence, their fragile forms, continuous metamorphoses, and inevitable decay.

In a contemporary manner, Encyclopedia of Flowers immerses the reader in a universe of extraordinary beauty while at the same time addressing dichotomies such as durability and vanity, artificiality and nature, hybrid culture and environmental change. This volume by the Japanese “haute-couture” florists includes an introduction by Makoto Azuma and an index identifying all of the more than 2,000 featured species with their binomial names.

Picture of Proof (Signed Copy)

Publisher's Description
Anthropomorphism has long been a trademark of van Dongen's work. However, what distinguishes the pictures assembled in “Proof” is their illustration of the unexpected and breathtaking effect of time on untreated master proofs. Though some of these Polaroid images are no older than a few years, they all seem to have been pulled from an exquisite, moldering time capsule. Unstable chemicals have randomly burned, flashed and splashed his fine images. The result is spellbinding. Perky blooms and sensual bouquets simultaneously relay a wisdom of age and mortality. Ron van Dongen’s photographs have been the subject of numerous monographs, and are widely exhibited and collected in the United States, Europe and Asia. This first edition of “Proof” is limited to 750 copies for international distribution.

Picture of Seeing Trees - Discover the Extraordinary Secrets of Everyday Trees
Publisher's Description
For many, the tree is a symbol of longevity, integrity, and enduring beauty. But how many of us have truly seen a tree? How well do we know the intimate details and secrets of that old familiar oak in the backyard? In Seeing Trees, author Nancy Ross Hugo teaches us a whole new way of watching a tree. And in breathtaking shots of striking detail, photographer Robert Llewellyn shows us why it's worth it.

On every page we see the miracle of seeds maturing, leaves unfurling, and flowers emerging. But moreover, this book teaches us what to look for when we slow down and take the time — what we can see in the scars of a leaf, the twig structure, and the pattern of the bark. With profiles of the most familiar and beloved species, including the American Beech, the Red Maple, the Southern Magnolia, and the Tulip Poplar, Seeing Trees opens our eyes to a tree's shy magnificence, and invites us to deepen our relationship with these earthly treasures.

You can view images from this book on the Timber Press website.

Picture of IAN HAMILTON FINLAY - Two Gardens - SOLITUDE AND RENUNCIATION
Publisher's Description
The sacred grove of antiquity was an enchanted spot for quiet contemplation, where mortals could commune with the gods. This tradition continues to resonate in the two extraordinary gardens created by the Scottish poet, artist and gardener Ian Hamilton Finlay (1925–2006): Little Sparta on the windswept heaths of Scotland’s Pentland Hills, and the garden Fleur de l’Air in the midst of ancient olive terraces in Provence, France. The Little Sparta garden was begun in 1966 and today harbors some 275 poetic artworks and sculptures. Its name alludes to Edinburgh’s epithet: »Athens of the North«. In 2004, Scottish artists and art experts chose Little Sparta as the nation’s premier artwork.

Little Sparta is open to visitors during the summer months, while the newer Fleur de l’Air, created in 1994, remains closed to the public. Hungarian photographer Sam Rebben captured both gardens in lovely images that invite viewers to immerse themselves in the interplay between nature and culture, and in the exceptional garden poetry of Ian Hamilton Finlay.

Picture of Tree in Photographs
Publisher's Description
Visual artists as well as writers have long extolled the presence of the tree. From the origins of photography to the present day, photographers have considered the tree, with its strong graphic form and evocative power, to be a popular subject. Through the works of artists such as Robert Adams, Eugène Atget, Anne Brigman, William Eggleston, P. H. Emerson, Gustave Le Gray, Eliot Porter, Alfred Stieglitz, Paul Strand, William Henry Fox Talbot, and Carleton Watkins, this book spans the history of photography from the mid-nineteenth to early-twenty-first century to address the image of the tree in its many connotations—as graphic form, symbolic icon, and role model for the beauty of nature.

The selection of eighty-one images carefully culled from the J. Paul Getty Museum's permanent collection of photographs and reproduced in color presents the tree in various contexts: the single tree; trees in the urban landscape; uses of trees; tree reflections and shadows; and details, abstractions, and conceptual views of trees as conceived by contemporary artists.

Even though all the works are found in one small nation, their strengths are universal and the ‘Close’ collection uses local examples from all corners of the country to celebrate the important role of gardens and land art in international arts and culture.

The book includes portraits of and written contributions by many of the artists and designers who’s work is shown in the collection including Andy Goldsworthy, Charles Jencks, Alec Finlay, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Douglas Coltart, Laura Ford, Anish Kapoor, Shane Waltener, Peter Liversidge, Antony Gormley, Marc Quinn, Bridget Baines, Eelco Hooftman, Nigel Sampey, Rolf Roscher, Chris Rankin, Andy Sturgeon, James Alexander Sinclair, Arabella Lennox-Boyd, Jinny Blom, Penelope Hobhouse, Angelika, Dowager Countess Cawdor, Gerald Laing and Xa Tollemache.
