Picture of Elemental

Publisher's Description

Elemental tells a pictorial story of the sea, and its power. In its first part how it effects the man made objects placed within it, and secondly how it shapes our very planet at a natural erosion and shaping perspective. The images within this book are an effort to capture the essence of change, of making and remaking, of time and tide and the stories they leave behind. Each year the harbour residents watch the boats being winched out of the harbour to sit by the edge of the ocean during the wild winter months. I see the stories of time spent in the water. Each boat, so different in colour and size, left with a different pattern, telling a different tale of the ocean. The landscape changes with each tide of the ocean. North Cornwall’s coastline can be harsh and rugged, with ever changing patterns, colours, shapes and pathways. Each walk uncovers new treasure created by Mother Nature. Erosion peels back layers of Mother Natures story. The rocks, as they move with the ocean, share the ancient stories of their landscape, created over time

Picture of Remote Scottish Postboxes Postcards

Publisher's Description

Remote Scottish Postboxes is Martin Parr’s first major contribution to landscape photography. Between 2004 - 2010, Parr and his wife holidayed on the Scottish mainland and outlying islands of Orkney, Shetland, Barra, Lewis and Islay, stopping frequently to capture the local Postboxes. Through Parr’s photographs, these isolated, red outposts of civilisation each take on a character and personality of their own, against the lonely yet beautiful Scottish backdrop.

“When you are in the middle of nowhere, in a bleak landscape and in wild weather, these little post boxes are strangely comforting, a sign that other people are around, that life is going on, and that you are connected to the world” - Susie Parr

Remote Scottish Postboxes is presented in two ways; as a hand- stitched, 88 page book, in which the postboxes are accompanied by maps and co-ordinates of their locations and featuring a short text by Susie Parr, and as a Postcards book, comprised of 12 unbound postcards. Both books are designed by Victoria Forrest and are presented in a specially produced box.

Publisher's Description

Hong Kong Yesterday presents a singular vision of this enigmatic city by award winning photographer, Fan Ho. Black and white images capturing life in mid-century Hong Kong range from quiet voyeuristic tableaus to chaotic crowds, most focusing on the city’s inhabitants. Businessmen, families, dockworkers, alleys, markets and street scenes are all rendered in a style that is simultaneously abstract and humanistic. Fan Ho was born in Shanghai in 1937; he immigrated to Hong Kong as child and passed away in 2016.

Picture of Pictures from the Hoo Peninsula

Publisher's Description

The photographer Michael Collins, armed with a large-format camera, has spent years discovering traces of the past contained in the marshland landscapes just outside of London. The Hoo Peninsula is situated between the estuaries of the rivers Thames and Medway, one hour by car from central London. This narrow stretch of land is mainly made up of sand and clay hills. Nature there seems strangely inanimate, and the landscape is full of contrasts.

But technology and industry are encroaching on the grazing sheep, the saltmarsh and the mud flats. Pylons dot the wilderness, in which shipwrecks have become an integral part of the scenery. Michael Collins visited the Hoo peninsula over several years, producing pictures inspired by the landscapes of 'plein air' painting. With their rich details, they deliberately follow the tradition of nineteenth century record pictures - archival images that were commissioned by the government to document the progress of industrialisation.

Text in English and German.

Picture of Stations

Publisher's Dsecription

Oscillating between fantasy and reality, Noémie Goudal’s images explore both real and fictional geography, creating ephemeral spaces that question the nature of the image and its representational qualities. The series Southern Light Station continues to explore these subjects. Basing off of the symbolic spherical shape in reference to infinity and perfection, Goudal constructs her installations out of paper, wood and mirrors. Suspended in the sky, shot from high viewpoints or in isolated locations, these objects question our perception of the intangible nature of the infinite sky.

Picture of Faraway/Nearby

Publisher's Description

What is it like to return to the place of one’s childhood? When one returns to the countryside, far away from the hustle and bustle of the city, far from one’s own life and creative work? Jan Töve’s photographs of his home region are lyrical dabs of memory, the wide-eyed absorption of changes, a laconic stocktaking of a present-day somewhere. For a period just short of ten years (2007–16), the Swedish photographer and publicist returned time after time, at different points during the year, portrayed landscape as well as inhabitants, and discovered an individual rhythm. He was interested in how people deal with their surroundings, traditions, and the challenges posed by nature. In this series, Töve, who has produced numerous publications with photographs of nature and landscapes, found new structures and forms, for instance a recurring red that runs through the entire book—perhaps the signal of a defiant situatedness, a want-to-be-and-stay-here.

Publisher's Description

French Photographer Chrystel Lebas retracing the steps of famous botanist and ecologist Sir Edward James Salisbury (1886-1978). Salisbury’s glass negatives from the 1920, where used for his research and served as an important tool for Lebas to (re-)visit the Scottish landscape. In ‘Field Studies: Walking through Landscapes and Archives’ she combines her own large panoramic photographs, with the negatives and texts of Salisbury. Lebas uses long exposures, mostly photographed at dusk, when colours become subtle. The photographs are printed on large size fold out pages, which show all works in great detail.

‘Over 100 years later, Chrystel Lebas adopts this same state of travel, transported by Salisbury’s historic photographs. Her subject is—just like Salisbury’s was—the study of landscape environments and their inhabitant plants. Through photography and film Lebas traces the continual encounters between the forces of the wind and the sea with humans, animals, and plants.’ — Extract from Bergit Arends essay

Picture of Tokyo (Signed)

Publisher's Description

"Tokyo is one of my favourite cities and I was keen to produce a series of photos exploring what makes it such a special place. The mixture of different cultural elements and influences in Japan's capital city seems to have produced a style which is unique to itself. Combining inspirations ranging from ancient Far Eastern traditions to playful retro-futurism, the benign lunacy of the stage show in Kabukichuo's Robot Restaurant is a great example of this.

In searching for subjects, I was particularly drawn to the tiny yakitori restaurants and bars that are clustered together in the alleys and archways around some of the main train stations. The people who frequented these places were especially interesting; once they left the main streets and entered these tucked-away areas they seemed to let their guard down, relax and become happy. It felt as though each of these small pockets of hospitality provided a sense of community within the otherwise anonymous lifestyle of the vast metropolis."

Picture of Holga

Publisher's Description

Michael Kenna is internationally renowned for producing evocative black-and-white images of nature and the urban environment. Often photographing at night or in the early morning hours, the majority of his photographs involve long time exposures with the camera on a tripod. However, some of Kenna’s more quirky, whimsical, and unpredictable images have been photographed with inexpensive, hand-held, plastic Holga cameras. These cameras generally produce relatively lowfidelity images, with marked vignetting. Precisely because of these attributes and its portability, Kenna often carries a Holga camera, even when he is not specifically photographing. For this beautifully produced book, Kenna has chosen his favorite Holga images, many never seen before, from his vast archive of negatives. Despite their low-tech origin, these refined and artful photographs bear the hallmarks of Kenna's brilliant work.

Picture of Desert

Publisher's Description

“And now, over twenty years later,” Jungjin Lee notes, “when I examine these works, I encounter the same experiences and energy I had felt then and there. Transcending time and space, everything is still, my mind is perfectly quiet, and I know I face ‘eternity and the absolute.'” In this body of work produced over five years in the early 1990s, Lee captures the vast American Southwest and transforms it with liquid light and diluted light-sensitive emulsions to create images that are as uncontrollable and natural as the landscape she depicts. Desert comprises four series of works (each bound as a separate book and presented in a unique slipcase), all of which contain monochromatic images of arid lands. Stratigraphy etched into rock faces, massive stones, cave-like precipices, and anthropomorphic fauna showcase an extensive compendium of the desert’s many faces and textures. Each image focuses on the landscape’s formal qualities, eschewing human presence, simultaneously evoking late 19th-century photography, while epitomizing the stark modernity of Lee’s lens. Certain images provoke a sense of the infinite in their vastness, while others fix upon particular features, deftly transitioning from the macro to the micro.

Picture of Iconic China

Due to publish October 2017

Publisher's Description

Luca Campigotto’s journey in China begins with a search for a mythical past and arrives at the chaotic present of the megacities.

The photographs collected in 'Iconic China' present an image of the soul of a country in which extraordinary futuristic skylines of cities projected into the future blend with traditions and atmospheres that stretch back thousands of years: the silences and the remoteness of the Great Wall; the archaeological miracle of the unearthed terracotta army; the ancient quietness of the rivers in the south; the dazzling whirlwind of unstoppable urbanisation.

Campigotto’s large-format images transform themselves from view to vision: the classic and contemplative look borrowed from great nineteenth-century photography comes to terms with the contemporary world, immersing itself in the colours of the urban night. The precision of the compositions—always imbued with references to paintings and the cinema—and a skilful use of light, bring order to the vastness and complexity of the scene.

Picture of Tenancy

Publisher's Description

A major new work, Tenancy is comprised of 43 photographs by Robert Adams made in Nehalem Bay State Park, Oregon, between 2013 and 2015, with short texts by the artist. The book’s theme of tenancy expresses the idea of “temporary possession of what belongs to another”—specifically, the natural environment. Adams’ recent photographs of the landscape reference the current and imminent threats of clearcutting, environmental degradation, and natural disasters along the Northwestern coast of the US.

The black-and-white photographs include poignant images of massive tree stumps on the beach—a product of the cutting of first and early second growth—as well as shimmering stretches of coastline protected for endangered birds previously thought to have abandoned northern Oregon.
In Tenancy Adams writes, “Each year thousands of people visit the Spit and the adjoining town of Manzanita. Their reasons for coming are personal, but if one watches as they leave their cars and stare seaward it is a fair guess, I think, that many are looking to escape illusion and to be reconciled.”

Picture of Cuba Archive: Photography from 1990s Cuba

Due to publish September 2017

Publisher's Description

Tria Giovan first traveled to Cuba in 1990. Over the next six years she took twelve month-long trips, traversing the island numerous times, and making more than 25,000 images. Immersing herself in Cuba’s history, literature, and politics, she photographed interiors of homes and businesses, city streets, rural landscapes, signs and billboards, and, most of all, the people, creating a compelling body of work that captures the subtleties and layered complexities of day-to-day Cuba born from complete engagement and informed perspective.

'Cuba: The Elusive Island', published by Harry N. Abrams in 1996—a collector’s item—first brought together 100 of these images, along with a selection of writings by some of Cuba’s most important writers. Twenty years later, Giovan re-edited the images, while working to preserve the original 6 x 9 color negatives. Through this intensive re-examination, a new, more complex view of the historical significance of this work has emerged. Images previously disregarded or missed now stand out as a record of elements that no longer exist, and of a Cuba poised on the brink of change.

The selected images featured in 'The Cuba Archive', many of which have never previously been shown, reveal Cuba at a pivotal point in its fascinating history, and bear witness to an inimitable, resilient, and complex country and people.

Following in the footsteps of Kūkai, one by one, I visit a sacred ground for each of my desires,
and one by one my sins and my worries leave me.
The pain that occupies my heart, too, slowly fades.

Picture of Thomas Annan

Publisher's Description

Thomas Annan (1829-1887) was the preeminent photographer of Glasgow in the mid-nineteenth century, a period when the rise in industry and population dramatically altered the landscape of the "second city" of the British Empire. Often working in conjunction with civic projects, Annan produced numerous series that underscore the transformation of the city and its environs, though he remains best known for one series in particular: a group of enigmatic photographs of central Glasgow alleys, or "closes," on the verge of demolition.

These haunting images, made between 1868 and 1871, and sometimes regarded as precursors of the documentary tradition in photography, represent the notion of progress that underpins much of Annan's oeuvre. Annan's publication history serves as the organizing principle for this book, which considers both the breadth of his body of work as well as the multiple formats in which his photographs appeared and circulated. Featured here are seven examplesincluding private albums and commercial booksthat focus on subjects as varied as the city's streets and closes, the Loch Katrine aqueduct, Glasgow College, the cathedral, and the country estates of the landed gentry, and highlight Annan's extensive engagement with the city of Glasgow. Plates from each of these works are faithfully reproduced in full color, and an introductory essay by the leading authority on Annan surveys the life and career of this little-known but influential photographer.

Picture of Everglades

Publisher's Dsecription

In the 1800s, the Everglades were viewed as a landscape to develop and conquer, to alter permanently. To date, more than half of the Everglades have been repurposed for urban and agricultural use.  “Freshwater flowing into the park is engineered,” reads the brochure given to all visitors of Everglades National Park.  “With the help of pumps, floodgates, and retention ponds along the park’s boundary, the Everglades is presently on life support, alive but diminished.”

In Everglades, Lisa Elmaleh returned to her native South Florida.  In a project that lasted from 2008 until 2016, Elmaleh examined her native landscape, photographing the flora and fauna of the Everglades, the only ecological system of its kind.  Inspired by early landscape photographers of the American West, Elmaleh spent her time in the Everglades using a large format 8×10” camera and the wet collodion glass negative process, a nineteenth century process requiring the images be exposed and developed on site in a small portable cardboard darkroom.  In this way, Elmaleh hopes to preserve an essence of the Everglades, a land we are rapidly losing without knowing the magnitude of our loss.

The Everglades project was the winner of the Aaron Siskind Foundation award, the Puffin Foundation Grant, and the Everglades National Park Artist Residency (AIRIE).
