Picture of Salt Pans

Publisher's Description

Salt Pans is Edward Burtynsky's  newest book in his acclaimed ongoing series of photographs exploring different industrialized landscapes across the world. Consisting of 31 aerial photos of the salt pans in the Little Rann of Kutch, the project is the result of months of intricate negotiations and preparations. These striking geometric images, taken in an intense ten-day period during which Burtynsky photographed from a helicopter, present the pans, wells and vehicle tracks as abstract, painterly patterns: subtly colored rectangles crossed by grids of gestural lines.

And yet the reality behind the ironic beauty of Burtynsky’s pictures is a harsh one. Each year 100,000 poorly paid Agariya workers toil in the pans, extracting over a million tons of salt from the floodwaters of the nearby Arabian Sea. Furthermore, receding groundwater levels, combined with debt, diminishing market values as well as a lack of governmental support, threaten the future of this 400-year-old tradition and the lives dependent on it.

"The images in this book are not about the battles being fought on the ground. Rather, they examine this ancient method of providing one of the most basic elements of our diet; as primitive industry and as abstract two-dimensional human marks upon the landscape."

Publisher's Description

Lee Friedlander (b. 1934) is best known for his images of the social landscape, in which the banal features of roadsides and city streets become a vivid backdrop for human interaction. In this extraordinary compilation, Friedlander turns his attention to the natural landscape. Western Landscapes features more than 175 images of the western United States, Canada, and Mexico, taken during the 1990s and 2000s. The selection encompasses mountains, deserts, icy plains, and forests alike, capturing the majesty of crashing waves and towering peaks as well as the humble beauty of mottled stones and tangled twigs. Friedlander also showcases in crisp black and white some of the most prominent and treasured American national parks—including Yosemite, Yellowstone, the Grand Canyon, and Zion. The iconic grandeur and isolation of the west provide a counterpoint to Friedlander’s portraits and scenes of modern American life, illustrating another equally compelling dimension of national identity.

Publisher's Description

Edward Burtynsky has achieved global recognition for his spectacular, large-scale photographs which depict the impact of human activity upon urban and natural environments around the world. They cover such subjects as mines and quarries, the oil industry, ship-building and ship-breaking, water as a resource under threat worldwide, and an emergent China.

Curated by William A. Ewing, this volume, the first comprehensive survey of Burtynsky’s multi-faceted work in over a decade, includes both iconic images and previously unpublished photographs.

Relinquishing the project-based lens through which the photographer’s work has previously been presented – the major monographs Oil and Water being the most recent examples – it presents Burtynsky’s photographs in free-flowing sections which combine and contrast work from throughout his career. This original approach provides a sense of both his visual language and his exploration of the dilemmas at the heart of our globalized world. Each section is interspersed with selected texts which work in concert with the images to provide a context and greater understanding of Burtynsky’s view of the world.

With an introduction by Ewing and an afterword by academic Joshua Schuster, Essential Elements provides an entirely new way of seeing Burtynsky’s work for those who are already familiar with it, as well as an accessible introduction for those encountering his photographs for the first time.

Picture of Last Stop, The

Publisher’s Description

The Last Stop does far more than capture the remarkable, effective design of our nation’s road stops. It preserves a moment in time that is quickly fading, a unique period in the American travel experience when the journey was just as important as the destination. It’s clear these modest structures did far more than provide picnic tables, they shaped our collective experience of golden-age car travel across the vast United States.

While driving in 2007 on a solo road trip from California to central Texas, photographer Ryann Ford was struck by a recurring sight: humble, solitary rest stops. A nondescript blur outside the car window to most, the quirky rest stops on Ford’s journey seized her attention – mock adobe dwellings in New Mexico, depression-era stone houses in Arizona, faux oil rigs in Texas. What was the story behind these playful pieces of Americana?

After doing some research, Ford was alarmed to learn that these rest areas were currently being closed and demolished all over the country. With countless commercial options at nearly every highway exit, and states needing to cut expenses, many felt that these old rest stops were no longer necessary. Upon learning the news, she immediately felt an urgency to capture as many as she could before they were gone forever.

Ford spent years on the road ducking under fences, stepping over fallen trees, and hiking through snow to reach some of these iconic rest stops; in doing so, she learned that they are so much more than toilets and tables – for the past several decades they have given millions of travelers from around the world rest, relief, hospitality and nostalgia.

States Ryann visited and featured in the book are: New Mexico, Texas, California, Arizona, Utah, Nevada, Oklahoma, Missouri, Illinois, Minnesota, Iowa, Kansas, South Dakota, and Louisiana.

A Few Points Regarding the Shanghai Shoot

Beginnings: In the past thirty years, China, Shanghai in particular, has seen great development, one of the greatest shifts in thousands of years. But one must never forget why he set out in the first place, simply because he went too far. In this large scale urban reconstruction, many things have been lost, to the point that many people have begun to ask, where did we come from? What are we doing? Where are we going? Thus, we need to use artistic methods to connect those disappeared memories of the city, to explore those meaningful tangents in this cultural rift.

Concept: I have always wanted to seek out a certain philosophical relationship between the majority and the minority. This relationship seems to figure importantly in modern Chinese history. Our photo shoot this time is split into three historical phases: the black-and-white Republican era, the red classic era and the golden contemporary era. During the black-and-white Republican era, a minority of foreigners and Chinese compradors influenced the majority through their modern lifestyle. In the red classic era, the ideals of a minority were realized through the majority, and the foundation was laid for today’s soaring growth. The golden contemporary era is one where minorities and majorities influence each other and depend on each other, realizing the Chinese dream of economic strength.

Methods: This photography project mainly employs three methods. The first is capture photography. What is capture photography? In this method, we have our actors and extras randomly play out their assigned roles in a chosen setting, and when they reach the desired effect, we order them to freeze. We then make slight adjustments in positioning for greatest effect, repeating the process several times until we are satisfied enough to take the picture. This method allows for a union between people and place, creating a vivid image rather than a dull, arranged effect. The second is the living news drama method. The “living news drama” is a dramatic form with its roots in Shanghai opera. It arose in the years of Japanese occupation, when Shanghai leftists, aware that much of their audience was illiterate, produced plays to promote the resistance against Japan. Today, we use this method to act out the stories in their various settings and to interact with audiences to effect a passage to history, creating a cultural image of Shanghai past and present. The third method is both real and virtual, akin to the regular, cursive and wild scripts of Chinese calligraphy. Global photography today always pursues super-realism and fineness, like the regular script of Chinese calligraphy. We use varying speeds and actors to create photographic images that rest somewhere between the real and virtual, much like the cursive script of calligraphy, in an expression of our pursuit of history and the memories of a city.

Picture of Song for Windows, A

Publisher's Description

Inspired by the short documentary Haru, yksinäisten saari (Haru, the Island of the Solitary) from 1998, Takashi Homma (b. 1962, Japanese) traveled from his hometown of Tokyo, the most populous metropolitan area in the world, to the remote island of Klovharun, located in the Pellinki archipelago, Finland. There he documented the primitive island and its single cabin where Swedish-speaking Finnish novelist Tove Jansson (author of the Moomin book series for children) and her life companion, Finnish illustrator Tuulikki Pietilä, spent nearly a quarter century of summers together. This publication - a board book with rounded edges - pays homage to the late author. All texts are written by Tove Jansson, taken from The Summer Book, first published in 1972.

Picture of Rouge

Publisher's Description

One of the world’s most acclaimed photographers working exclusively in black-and-white, Michael Kenna has traveled the world to create stunning, magical images of nature and manmade objects. Known for the ethereal tone and incredibly nuanced detail of his photographs, Kenna is also a chronicler of environmental degradation. His images of an auto plant outside of Detroit, Michigan, are some of his best-known works. Long out of print, Rouge has been brought back to life with a spectacular new design, an authoritative essay by art historian James Steward, and many previously unpublished images that were part of the original series. As the city of Detroit struggles to reclaim its heritage as an American commercial and artistic hub, these photographs resonate more than ever with the stark realities and hidden beauty of the industrial landscape.

Publisher's Description

[…] traditional American landscape photography has become a rather moribund photographic trope [...] a sanctified, cliched reverence has become the norm. In Halpern’s California work, I see him removing himself from the comforts of the past and endeavoring to strike out afresh, rethinking his conditioning and antecedents to break free of this particular mould. — Chris Killip

Beauty and its implication of promise is the metaphor that gives art its value. It helps us rediscover some of our best intuitions, the ones that encourage caring. — Robert Adams

The early settlers dubbed California The Golden State, and The Land of Milk and Honey. Today there are the obvious ironies – sprawl, spaghetti junctions and skid row—but the place is not so easily distilled or visualized, either as a clichéd paradise or as its demise. There’s a strange kind of harmony when it’s all seen together—the sublime, the psychedelic, the self-destructive. Like all places, it’s unpredictable and contradictory, but to greater extremes. Cultures and histories coexist, the beautiful sits next to the ugly, the redemptive next to the despairing, and all under a strange and singular light, as transcendent as it is harsh.

The pictures in this book begin in the desert east of Los Angeles and move west through the city, ending at the Pacific. This general westward movement alludes to a thirst for water, as well as the original expansion of America, which was born in the East and which hungrily drove itself West until reaching the Pacific, thereby fulfilling its “manifest” destiny.

The people, places, and animals in the book did exist before Halpern’s camera, but he has sewn these photographs into a work of fiction or fantasy—a structure, sequence and edit which, like Los Angeles itself, teeters on the brink of collapsing under the weight of its own strangely-shaped mass.

Publisher's Description

In 2014 the English newspaper The Guardian declared grey as the “colour of the decade”. In his latest publication Tom Jacobi, photographer of our best-seller “Wo Gott wohnt” (2000), reduces “our world to the essential; our blue planet is in reality a grey one. No colour pyrotechnics, no distraction, pure introspection and meditation. It is a miracle,” observes Bryan Adams. From Europe to Africa, from Australia to the Antarctic and from the USA to Patagonia we follow the long-standing Art Director of Stern on his journey to the timeless beauty of nature. Monumental, moving and penetrating into the very heart of things, we encounter landscapes which teach us to gaze in wonder and awe.

The definitive collection of Bernard Plossu’s iconic colour photographs of the American Southwest.

Bernard Plossu has been called ‘the most American of French photographers’ by his friend and colleague Lewis Baltz. Although he is best known for his work in black and white, often capturing a bohemian world of free-spirited adventure, Plossu has also shot in colour throughout his career.
This book showcases 88 bold and cinematic colour photographs, many of which are previously unpublished, dating from the 1970s and early 80s, when Plossu was resident in the US. Strikingly rendered using the Fresson carbon printing process, these images depict an unmistakably American landscape of motels and rodeos, deserts and highways; a realm that is both rugged and dreamlike, haunted by the mythic imagery of the Old West. They combine to form a memorable and atmospheric collection of work by a supremely talented photographer.

For more than 10 years Albertina D’Urso has followed in the footsteps of Tibetans forced to escape from their homeland, many of whom crossed the Himalayan range by foot, to defend their cultural and religious identity, their traditions and their language from Chinese repression. In Out Of Tibet she has documented their new lives throughout the world – including several areas of India, as well as in Nepal, Taiwan, New York, London, Paris, Zurich, Rome, Brussels, Amsterdam and Toronto.

It is a moving exploration of their culture and traditions in the country where they now live. Portrayed in their homes, during their private moments or at celebrations of Tibetan culture, D’Urso focuses on their emotions and their continued attachment to their homeland. It is as if she is bringing together, visually, the many Tibetans in exile who are displaced all around the world – a unique de facto state with no land. His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Lobsang Sangay (Prime Minister of the Central Tibetan Administration) have contributed forewords to the book and many of the Tibetan exiles contribute their own thoughts and experiences.

The wild beauty of the French Atlantic coast captured in atmospheric images.

With its spectacular forms and lines, France’s Atlantic coast holds a unique, understated beauty. The photographer Marco Paoluzzo has captured austere, almost bleak scenes of sand, cliff and sky. Silhouettes that imply the presence of humans. The sea stretches desert-like from Dunkirk in the far north of France to Biarritz in the south. A lighthouse, a tree, a ship, the spray of the Atlantic – the photographs read like an ancient saga and seem to harbor endless secrets.

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 city of Ordos in China, only exists since a few years, but is already a ghost-town. One of countless new city projects in China, Ordos is the biggest, the most megalomaniac, and the worst situated one: in the middle of inner Mongolia’s vast steppe, in a region lacking water and trees. Originally, Ordos was set to welcome at least a million inhabitants but repelled by its harsh climate and exorbitant prices, barely a few thousands ever settled. There is no activity in Ordos, except building Ordos. Relentlessly, high-rise condominiums reproduce in the hostile plain, while the wide avenues in the blank city center stay empty. The skyscrapers of the hypothetical Central Business District are not even connected to the power network. Ordos is a gigantic real estate bubble, of a breed that could ruin the economy of a whole country, but the Chinese government ploughs on with its chimera. In the meanwhile Ordos, the city, where everything is better and bigger, still awaits the essential: its inhabitants.

Adrien Golinelli (b. 1987) lives and works in Switzerland. In his works, that amongst others include essays on Bhutan, Afghanistan and North Korea, he combines fine art and documentary photography.

Publisher's Description

With Houses Rooms Voices, Stefan Koppelkamm not only collects basic elements of urban space. The catalogue also uses them to stage a game with different times. It focuses on the Local Time project, which the photographer initiated in 1990. Shortly after the fall of the Berlin wall, he travels through eastern Germany and captures houses, streets, and squares in black-and-white photographs. Ten years later, he seeks out these places a second time and takes pictures of them from exactly the same position. The changes are remarkable: social and economical transformations permeate each of these images. Supplemented by contemporary urban impressions—enormous window façades and huge billboards—as well as urban sound collages, Koppelkamm creates a panorama that embraces not only space, but time as well.

Picture of Mud | Sand

Publisher's Description

Mud|Sand… a notation that appears frequently on the Ordnance Survey map of the Bristol Channel. It is also a pretty succinct description of the coast here.

When the sediment rich waters of Britain’s longest river merge with a sea that is subjected to the second largest tidal range in the world, it is inevitable that some remarkable coastal landscapes are formed.

This series of photographs explores the unusual and often maligned aesthetic of a coastline defined by miles of mudflats and salt marsh. It is a landscape rich with patterns that are constantly remoulded by tidal forces, and wet surfaces that reflect whatever drama is being played out in the skies above.

Picture of Fragile

Publisher's Description

‘The work in this book is an attempt to reconcile some of the conflicting aspects that are of interest to me in the landscape. The images here are an investigation into how the most fragile elements seem to have their very existence challenged and their vulnerability magnified when set against the strength and solidity of their surroundings’.

Valda Bailey is a freelance photographer living in Sussex who first became passionate about photography when she was 14. Her approach to photography is greatly informed by her background in painting and her influences come as much from artists as photographers. She is largely motivated by colour and form and the tension and dynamism that these components can bring to an image.

Her objectives are to portray an interpretation of a scene rather than a literal representation. She makes her images using camera movement and multiple exposure – two techniques which help to create abstract shapes and blur extraneous detail.

She has spent time in New York under the expert tutelage of noted street photographer, Jay Maisel and has been greatly influenced by his teaching about light, colour and gesture.

Her work has been featured in broadsheet newspapers, national and international publications and she has recently been invited to teach for Light & Land Photographic Workshops run by Charlie Waite. She has exhibited most recently in London and last summer was the first woman to be invited to join six other photographers to exhibit at the biennial Masters of Vision in Southwell.

She has images in private collections worldwide and her work has been purchased by notable members of the art and photographic community.
