Publisher's Description

North America’s pristine, remote, and very much endangered lands as seen through the award-winning aerial photography of Jim Wark. The expanse of North America seems boundless, and its wild lands encompass some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. Though timeless in their majesty, some areas are at risk of vanishing or changing forever, and Jim Wark’s passion is to capture many of these beautiful regions before they are developed or environmentally impacted-and lost. From the lush coasts of the Great Lakes to the jagged peaks of the Rocky Mountains, from the deep crevasses of Utah’s Canyonlands to the picturesque valleys of the Appalachians, this breathtaking volume captures these remote gems with glorious vistas and unique and detailed perspectives only available from the air. 

Piloting his high-wing bush plane for unobstructed camera work and unique low-level angles, Wark’s artistic eye for detail makes this book an incomparable trip to the last North American wildernesses.

Picture of Designs on the Land

Publisher's Description

For more than three decades, aerial photographer Alex MacLean has visually documented the history and evolution of the American land. From Massachusetts tobacco farms to a decimated Queens neighborhood, and from the fog-shrouded Berkshires to a field of abandoned B-52 bombers in Arizona, many of these 400 color photographs of deserts, forests, junkyards, and housing developments display an abstract beauty and cultural relevance. A trained architect who is closely involved in landscape protection issues, MacLean fashions aesthetically pleasing images which can nonetheless serve as a caution against the effects of pollution and urban sprawl.

Picture of Tree Stone Water (Signed)

Publisher's Description

After visiting Japan during the 70’s and 80’s, and after the disappointment to see that even regional cities had been developed to the point where they all resembled a mini-Tokyo, Gerry Johansson (b. 1945, Swedish) decided to focus his creative energy on capturing the environment surrounding the Japanese people, as opposed to the people themselves. He chose not to merely record the bustling modern development of Ehime Prefecture, the core of Shikoku, but to also capture the exceptional natural beauty of the region. He took his camera to the rocks and mountain streams of the Nametoko Valley, deep inside forests teeming with the energy of life, and to the waters of the Seto Inland Sea.

The book is divided into three chapters, according to the book’s title. Photographs taken in Ehime Prefecture, Japan, September and October 1999.

First edition of 375 copies, numbered and signed.

Picture of Both Sides of Sunset: Photographing Los Angeles

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

Publisher's Description

Los Angeles is a city of dualities—sunshine and noir, coastline beaches and urban grit, natural beauty and suburban sprawl, the obvious and the hidden. Both Sides of Sunset: Photographing Los Angeles reveals these dualities and more, in images captured by master photographers such as Bruce Davidson, Lee Friedlander, Daido Moriyama, Julius Shulman and Garry Winogrand, as well as many younger artists, among them Matthew Brandt, Katy Grannan, Alex Israel, Lise Sarfati and Ed Templeton, just to name a few. Taken together, these individual views by more than 130 artists form a collective vision of a place where myth and reality are often indistinguishable. Spinning off the highly acclaimed Looking at Los Angeles (Metropolis Books, 2005), Both Sides of Sunset presents an updated and equally unromantic vision of this beloved and scorned metropolis. In the years since the first book was published, the artistic landscape of Los Angeles has flourished and evolved. The extraordinary Getty Museum project Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945–1980 focused global attention on the city's artistic heritage, and this interest has only continued to grow. Both Sides of Sunset showcases many of the artists featured in the original book—such as Lewis Baltz, Catherine Opie, Stephen Shore and James Welling—but also incorporates new images that portray a city that is at once unhinged and driven by irrepressible exuberance. Proceeds from the sale of the book will benefit Inner-City Arts—an oasis of learning, achievement and creativity in the heart of Los Angeles' Skid Row that brings arts education to elementary, middle and high school students.

Contributing photographers and artists are Robert Adams, Iwan Baan, John Baldessari, Lewis Baltz, Sara Jane Boyers, Tim Bradley, Matthew Brandt, Charles Brittin, Mauren Brodbeck, Michael Butler, Craig Carlson, Oscar Castillo, Sam Comen, Kevin Cooley, Zoe Crosher, Bruce Davidson, Raymond Depardon, Tomas T.

Picture of Night Walk

Publisher's Description

Twenty-five years after his seminal 1988 book, Invisible City, Ken Schles revisits his archive and fashions a narrative of lost youth: a delirious, peripatetic walk in the evening air of an irretrievable Downtown New York as he saw and experienced it. Night Walk is a substantive and intimate chronicle of New York’s last pre-Internet bohemian outpost, a stream-of-consciousness portrayal that peels back layers of petulance and squalor to expose the frisson and striving of a life lived amongst the rubble. Here Schles embodies the flâneur as Susan Sontag defines it, as a “connoisseur of empathy ... cruising the urban inferno, the voyeuristic stroller who discovers the city as a landscape of voluptuous extremes.” We see in Night Walk a new and revelatory Ulysses for the twenty-first century: a searching tale of wonder and desire, life and love in the dying hulk of a ruined American city.

Picture of Bay Bridge: The New East Span

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

Publisher's Description

With his Bay Bridge: The New East Span images, photographer Tom Paiva has richly documented the latest chapter in the history of spanning California’s East Bay. In the late 1920s, economic and social changes in the Bay Area, including the increasing popularity of automobiles, prompted the California legislature to establish the California Toll Bridge Authority and charged it with connecting San Francisco and Alameda County. The groundbreaking ceremony for the longest bridge in the world at that time took place on July 9, 1933, and presaged a nearly three-and-a-half-year project at a cost of $77 million. When it opened on November 12, 1936, the Bay Bridge caused “the greatest traffic jam in the history of San Francisco.” During its first year of operation, the Bay Bridge was crossed by nine million vehicles.
The 50th anniversary of the completion of the Bay Bridge, which actually includes both a suspension bridge and a truss bridge, took place in 1986. Three years later, the Loma Prieta earthquake damaged the East Span, even though the epicenter of the 7.1 earthquake lay nearly 90 miles south. After 53 years and many millions of vehicles safely transported, the bridge was showing its age, prompting plans to create a more enduring structure.

In 2002, the 11-year construction project on the new Bay Bridge began, involving a complete retrofit of the suspension bridge and the replacement of the truss bridge with the world’s longest self-anchored suspension span. Photographer Tom Paiva, on an aerial assignment in the Bay Area, happened upon the initial phase of the project and knew that he had to become part of it Assigning himself the task of recording the creation and the construction of this monumental structure from his vantage point, Paiva believed that his unique vision would offer a valuable, yet complementary, view of the $6 billion enterprise. His quest was to contribute a lasting document that would honor the visionaries—past and present—who could imagine and create these imposing, yet beautiful, man-made spans.

With “Bay Bridge: The New East Span”, Tom Paiva has produced a masterful body of work, documenting one of the most daunting, and finally triumphant, engineering feats of our generation. This beautifully produced, oversized monograph pays fitting homage to its subject, and all of those who were involved in its creation.

Picture of City of Darkness Revisited

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

Publisher's Description

Though demolished 20 years ago, fascination in Kowloon Walled City just continues to grow, fired in part by the many urban legends that forever swirl around this extraordinary community. Designed and edited by Greg Girard and Ian Lambot – the team behind City of Darkness: Life in Kowloon Walled City – City of Darkness Revisited aims to question those myths and explore the reality behind the Walled City’s extraordinary development. With the benefit of new photographs, drawings and documents, many previously unpublished, the true story is revealed to be every bit as fascinating.

First published in April 1993, City of Darkness: Life in Kowloon Walled City remained in print for almost 20 years, an extraordinary record for book of this kind. And so it might have remained but in 2013, with interest in the Walled City continuing to grow, another reprint seemed inappropriate. It was time, we decided, to produce an all-new edition and bring the story up to date.

Picture of Mark Ruwedel

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

Publisher's Description

Over the past three decades, Mark Ruwedel has examined the intersections of representation, cultural memory, and the shifting perceptions of space. His work is an epic account of North American civilization, extending from topologies of urban architecture to large-scale projects such as “The Ice Age” and “Westward the Course of Empire.

”Ruwedel represents landscape as a site where radically different scales of time intertwine. Picturing the earth as an enormous historical archive, he describes his work as “an inquiry into the histories, cultural and natural, of places that reveal the land as both a field of human endeavor and an agent of historical processes.” Ruwedel spotlights traces of human activity—whether an ancient footpath in Death Valley or a rotting wooden trestle abandoned after the failure of the Vancouver, Victoria and Eastern Railroad—in relation to geographic and geological upheavals that have shaped the earth’s surface. Ruwedel thus historicizes nature’s transformation of human structures into relics on their way to obliteration.

Picture of Imaging Eden

Publisher's Description

"Though they were ceded to the federal government in 1821, it was not until the beginning of the twentieth century that the Everglades were systematically depicted in photographs. Imaging Eden presents an overview of the pictures that have formed our understanding of the Everglades, one of the most contested and unique environments on the planet, and new approaches to photographing the vast wetlands system. Using vernacular images as well as works by such celebrated photographers as Walker Evans, Marian Post Wolcott, Eliot Porter, James Balog and Clyde Butcher, Imaging Eden provides a framework to contextualize four contemporary commissioned projects. Amsterdam-based artist Bert Teunissen, American photographer and artist Gerald Slota, Korean-American Jung Jin Lee and Magnum photographer Jim Goldberg working in collaboration with Jordan Stein have been tasked with discovering the Everglades on their own terms, through their widely differing sensibilities and with their unique visual vocabularies."

Picture of Mysterious Opacity of Other Beings, The

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

Publisher's Description

Since the publication of Richard Misrach’s best-selling and critically acclaimed publication On the Beach, he has continued to photograph at the same location, building a body of work that has been exhibited as On the Beach 2.0—a reference to the technological and optical developments that have made the intensely detailed, exquisitely rendered depictions possible. The Mysterious Opacity of Other Beings focuses less on the abstraction of water, sand, and mote-sized figures, instead honing in on the gestures and expressions of bathers adrift in the ocean, at play or in poses ranging from relaxation to transcendence.

Misrach has rarely ventured into portraiture; this work is his first to focus exclusively on the human figure. Each photograph features one or more individuals crisply rendered from a distance, as they seem to levitate among turquoise waves, isolated from everything save the shifting patterns of the ocean. There is ambiguity and a sense of the uncanny in the figures suspended in the water: are they approaching the shore or moving away from it? Each image is presented both as full frame and as a series of enlarged details that enable the viewer to lin- ger on each individual’s complete surrender of their body to the sea—a seductive melding of human and nature.

Saudade Moon is a wonderful and immersive journey across Brasil.

The images in this book penetrate the heart and soul, the very existence of this country.

Through the photographer which filters reality into his own style we see Brasil and its people in an unprecedented, remarkable and penetrating way.

The photographs in this book individually and combined create an ephemeral visual poem that agitates the senses and ignites emotion.

Picture of Voyages Italiens

Publisher's Description

Bernard Plossu has been travelling the length and breadth of Italy for over forty years: “It’s a need, a passion, I feel good there. I go everywhere, on foot, by car, by train, from the mountains of Piedmont to Apulia, from Cuneo to Bari, from Turin to Palermo, from Bologna to Cagliari. All of it attracts me! Everywhere, I photograph the landscapes, people, atmospheres, architecture, present, past, future, poetry...”

Bernard Plossu has selected over 150 colour using Fresson processing (matt carbon prints) and black and white photographs for this book, many of which are published here for the first time. Far from the usual shots celebrating the high temples of Italy, Bernard Plossu alternates points of view between street scenes, deserted or buzzing marinas, landscapes taken from moving trains, majestic and serene landscapes from Lake Garda or the Maddalena Pass to wilder natural environments, particularly on islands.

Picture of Landscape in my Mind: Landscape photography today. Hamish Fulton to Andreas Gursky

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

Publisher's description

Landscape in my Mind is a pictorial journey through the landscapes of current art photography. The exhibition covers the whole gamut of current positions in international landscape photography from Hamish Fulton to Andreas Gursky. Always a network of connections between man and nature landscape presents itself as a mental projection level of the perception of our surroundings – both close and distant.

The works of art function as 'distorted' mirrors of perceived reality; they are not pure documentations produced at the click of a camera but hybrid tableaus between fiction and abstraction, metaphors of the view of the world and beyond. Typically, the photographs are 'pictures painted with the camera' in large format, which exude the self-confidence of New Photography. Blurring effects and compositional qualities enhance the tableau’s painterly and pictorial value. Consequently, artists such as Elger Esser or Jörg Sasse, for example, see themselves more as 'picture composers' rather than photographers. Rather than the objective perception of landscape as found in say Thomas Struth, these images elicit emotions in the observer, including feelings of being overwhelmed, melancholy, disquiet and dread.

Some of the artists in the exhibition present landscape photography as an experience and adventure, and resort to manipulative means in doing so. 'Global landscapes' produced as digital collages and enriched using found footage from the Web. Others destroy the illusion as when Thomas Ruff reveals images in pixeled resolution to be nothing more than digital information. Moreover, we have never set eyes on Mars. Roland Barthes’ pronouncement on photography that 'this is how it was' is annulled given the full spectrum of manipulation and fiction. Landscape photography as a painterly construction of reality.

Picture of Godrevy SIGNED

Signed copies

Publisher's Description

Godrevy light flashes across St Ives Bay in Cornwall, England, warning ships of a treacherous submerged reef. Built in 1859, it has figured in paintings by several generations of the St Ives school of artists. It was an inspiration to the young Virginia Woolf, who visited it during childhood holidays and later used her memories in her novel, To the Lighthouse. Michael Marten’s photographs aim to place the lighthouse in the context of its landscape and seascape, its geology and weathers. He is interested in multiple approaches to a subject, as opposed to the idea that one particular moment and viewpoint can adequately portray a place or a scene. The book is based around a series of triptychs, which consist of separate photographs taken one after the other. The purpose is to get away from a »standard« panoramic landscape and surprise the viewer into
looking more carefully.

From 2010 to 2014, photographer Nick Hannes travelled the length and breadth of the Mediterranean shores, documenting various contemporary issues such as tourism, urbanisation and migration. While he was working on this project, the region continuously hit the headlines: crisis in Greece, the Arab Spring, boat refugees on Lampedusa, wars in Libya, Syria, and Gaza. One thing is for sure: the Mediterranean was centre stage once more.

Nick Hannes' images capture the paradoxes of this region and the spirit of the time most significantly. They put things into perspective. Serious and moving in one moment, hilarious and ironic in the next.

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

Publisher's Description

During World War II, Adolf Hitler gave the order for a line of defence to be constructed along the coasts of the western front. Ranging from the French-Spanish border to the north of Norway, this Atlantic Wall is a series of bunkers, barricades and coastal batteries.

Over the past year, Stephan Vanfleteren photographed this 'wall' of more than 2600 kilometres in his well-known black-and-white style. He planted his tripod on various beaches in Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany, climbed cliff faces in France, sailed between the fjords of Norway and stood in the surf in Denmark to photograph the ruins of the largest military structure of the previous century.

Vanfleteren shows with this series of photos his wonder for the untamed architectural beauty of these concrete structures and he shows the power of nature as it slowly reclaims these structures that were once considered impenetrable.
