Picture of Lago

Publisher's Description

“…I know it happened, and I have enough information about it to reconstruct the whole scene to my own satisfaction, but the person to whom it happened is somewhere so far off that I only know it’s me because I can see his face, and because I’m the one remembering.” John Darnielle, Wolf in White Van

In Lago, Ron Jude returns to the California desert of his early childhood as if a detective in search of clues to his own identity. In a book of 54 photographs made between 2011 and 2014, he attempts to reconcile the vagaries of memory (and the uncertainty of looking) with our need to make narrative sense of things. Using a desolate desert lake as a theatrical backdrop, Jude meanders through the arid landscape of his youth, making note of everything from venomous spiders to discarded pornography. If one considers these traces to be a coded language of some sort, Jude’s act of photographing and piecing them together becomes a form of cryptography – like a poetic archeology that, rather than attempting to arrive at something conclusive, looks for patterns and rhythms that create congruity out of the stuttering utterances of the visible world. According to Jude, “these harmonies, when we’re lucky enough to find them, are probably the closest we can get to discovering actual ‘meaning’ and grasping the potency of place.”

Publisher's Description

This beautiful book presents a meditative, arresting, and dazzling collection of 250 black-and-white images of Japan, made over almost 30 years by the internationally renowned photographer Michael Kenna.
A rocky coast along the sea of Japan; an immense plain of rice fields in the snow; Mount Fuji towering over misty wooded hills; silent temples devoid of people but brimming with Buddhist deities; a Torii gate mysteriously emerging from moving clouds and water—these are a few images from this remarkable collection of photographs by Michael Kenna, whose black-and-white work is highly renowned.

Forms of Japan, brilliantly designed by Yvonne Meyer-Lohr, is organized into chapters simply titled, “Sea,” “Land,” “Trees,”, “Spirit,” and “Sky.” The quietly evocative photographs, often paired with classic haiku poems of Basho, Buson, Issa, and others, provide a contemplative portrait of a country betterknown for its energy and industry. Gorgeously reproduced to convey the enormous subtleties that exist in Michael Kenna’s traditional black-and-white silver prints, the photographs in this book include both well known and previously unpublished images from all corners of Japan: Hokkaido, Honshu, Kyushu, Okinawa, and Shikoku.

Picture of Lost Rivers

Publisher's Description

Lost Rivers is an exploration of Taipei, Taichung and Tainan's forgotten rivers, streams and waterways. Once dominant forces in carving out their surroundings, these rivers have now become neglected backwaters in the race to urbanise. Neglected, decrepit, the city is built over them and around them. Through them we see how the race to urbanise can affect our world.

Picture of Our Ocean's Edge (Special Edition -  Signed)

Publisher's Description

Special edition of 100 copies, each with a signed and numbered original archival pigment print, presented with a signed copy of the book in a custom clamshell box.

California made history with the creation of the nation’s first statewide system of ocean parks − a network of 124 Marine Protected Areas stretching from Oregon to the Mexico border. Like national parks on land, MPAs are magnificent in beauty and wildness while providing protection for wildlife, solutions to climate change, and recreational resources for all. Soon after the system was established, photographer Jasmine Swope set out to capture the essence of the marine parks. Her quest took her up and down California’s 1,100-mile long coastline. The result is “Our Ocean’s Edge,” a photographic documentary project coupled with original narratives written by author Dwight Holing that celebrates these fragile seascapes while increasing awareness about their natural benefits and inspiring conservation action. This beautiful clothbound monograph comprises 55 plates beautifully printed in duotone, and opens with a foreword by Wallace J Nichols.

A special edition, featuring a signed original photograph presented with a copy of the book in a custom clamshell box, is also available.

Swope's photographs have the soft look of richly worked, large-scale graphite drawings. In addition to her chosen printing technique, it is achieved through lengthy exposures that blur contours, enhance atmospherics and blend the motions of waves and birds into gentle near-abstractions. One result is to recast familiar sights, recorded in millions of snapshots of tourist scenery, into something alien and almost extraterrestrial. Rocky outcroppings rising above foggy gray swirls of luminosity might be on some far-off mountaintop or even on a Hollywood backlot. They're like mysterious landscapes glimpsed on another planet. That they're actually close to home makes the visual estrangement salutary. Swope's camera can only show the world's surface; however lovely the outward appearance might be, the complex but largely hidden dynamic of a habitat is what matters. Her photographs deftly evoke the presence of more than the eye can see.

Picture of Primordial Landscapes: Iceland Revealed

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

Publisher's description

Primordial Landscapes: Iceland Revealed elegantly explores the diverse and raw beauty of Iceland’s extraordinary landscapes through striking images by photographer and naturalist Feodor Pitcairn and the inspired words of geophysicist, author, and poet Ari Trausti Guðmundsson. This collection illuminates topographical phenomenon shaped and crafted by the most powerful natural forces on earth: rain and glacier melt form thunderous waterfalls and rivers that carve at the earth’s surface; arctic snow and ice peppering the land and sea with striking shapes and patterns, feeding the climate and water cycles; lava flows from active volcanoes that build vast, textured landforms where life can begin and take hold. These are the beautiful and extraordinary results of our planet’s most fundamental geological processes.

Pitcairn’s passion for photography lies in his desire to convey the truest account possible of the natural environments he explores and strives to protect. Each Primordial Landscapes image was made with a digital Hasselblad camera, delivering superior color, detail, and clarity. A map and index provide intriguing geological and cultural information about the content of the photographs.

Publisher's description

Throughout its complex past, Barcelona has managed to maintain its unique features: its famed architecture, monuments, style and spirit. Barcelona offers a visual chronological journey through the city with its stimulating mosaic of iconic images, many never before published, from past and present. The book begins in 1870, moving from the Expo to the crazy nights of 60s intellectuals to the energy of 1992. Finally comes a portrait of Barcelona through the lens of multiple generations: the images of local photographers such as Catala-Roca, Colita, Pomés and Masats, but also international greats such as Cartier-Bresson, Erwitt, Avedon, Koudelka, Newton and Parr, are accompanied by text that contextualizes them historically. Famed Barcelona figures, of course, make appearances as well: Picasso, Miró, Dalí, Ava Gardner, García Márquez, Cortázar and others are here captured in this beautiful tribute to a city and its cultural history.

Picture of Tough & Tender. English seascapes

Publisher's description

No matter where you are in England, you are no more than a few hundred miles from the sea. There is an unexplained attraction to the edges of the land. England is an island nation and the sea has a mysterious power on the psyche. People are drawn to the seashore. The Sea is expansive and allows the mind to be free and the imagination to slip off to far away places. An island is, however, confined. This juxtaposition encourages an interesting mix of people. English summertime is short; not always sunny. Seaside towns are full of the old Grandeur of long ago. They are fragile places; joy is tinged with the sadness of the passage of time.

The photographs and portraits express a great deal about the uniqueness of the English. They have resolution of spirit and strength. They have courage to sunbathe on rocky coasts, laugh in the pouring rain and stand in the mud when the skies are forever grey. Tough and Tender together.

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.
