Picture of Across the Tibetan Plateau - Ecosystems, Wildlife, and Conservation

Publisher's Description
The beauty and diversity of Tibet is staggering: from Mount Everest to the world's deepest gorge, from tropical jungles to arctic-like tundra, from trees twenty feet in diameter to vast herds and solitary specimens of some of the least-known animals on the planet. The remarkable photographs in this book, such as those of a newborn Tibetan antelope or the elusive red ghoral, celebrate the wild places and the exquisite animals of the country.

Across the Tibetan Plateau is the most comprehensive photographic portrait to date of a little-known and seldom-visited land the size of western Europe. It brings American, Tibetan and Chinese scholarship to bear on the natural history of Tibet, and describes an extraordinary conservation accomplishment that has gone virtually unnoticed by the outside world. As a result of this project, the animals and landscapes shown will be saved for future generations.

Picture of Mallorca: Island in Progress
Publisher's Description
With his striking new book Mallorca: Island in Progress, German photographer Marc Räder has landed on a Spanish island known primarily as a Mediterranean holiday hot spot. Over the course of four years, he watched the drastic changes of landscape and architecture, and the annual flow of some ten million tourists over the island. Like an archaeologist, he digs with his camera through the different decades of a paradise being changed by the parameters of global capitalism. Räder’s “docu-fiction” style turns the ordinary landscape into pictures which resemble fantastic architectural models, putting into question the veracity of his medium. The island of Mallorca has become a laboratory of tourism, a temporary paradise: a European melting pot which struggles from overusage, environmental destruction, and growing demands of established and recently-arrived inhabitants. Marc Räder’s work has been widely exhibited in the United States, Europe and Asia, and is included in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York.

Picture of Iron Beauties
Publisher's Description
Michelle Keim grew up in rural Ohio, an area more known for its rolling pastures than industrial parks. While in college at the Columbus College of Art and Design, she became fascinated by the industrial landscape and its overbearing presence. Keim started photographing active industry in the Midwest in 1992 and moved to Chicago three years later to get closer to the great steel metropolis of Gary, Indiana. The industrial landscapes have led Keim to explore the fascinating concept of power, an overwhelming force that is inherent in the utilitarian structures she shoots. The scale and function of industry rivals the sublime beauty associated with natural forms and forces. Keim accentuates this relationship by photographing at night, which eliminates details in the massive forms. The ultimate goal for Keim is to emphasize the force and drama with which active industrial structures rise up from the contemporary landscape. Steel mills and power plants contain the same tense beauty and spectacular power as volcanoes and electrical storms, and serve as a reminder that industrial age technology is powerfully in the present. Michelle Keim’s first monograph, Iron Beauties is published in a first edition of 1,000 copies.

Picture of World's Wild Places
Publisher's Description
There is no price that you can put on wilderness. In recent times a handful of globally super-rich have sought to buy vast tracts of remote land in a bid to capture the experience of wilderness, including Bill Gates. But even Bill Gates now admits that true wilderness is beyond price.

This book is as close to true wilderness as we may ever find ourselves able to come. The World's Wild Places is the culmination of ten years spent by one man waiting for dawn or dusk to spread its wings across impossibly remote lands at the furthest extremes of the Earth. Few match the power of Colin Prior's panoramic photography, and in this, his most ambitious collection of work and in some ways the most private, he presents an unforgettable record of the fast disappearing wild places of the world.

The searing sands of the Namib, the oxygen-starved Atacama desert, the gargantuan splendour of Monument Valley, the remote fastness of Torres del Paine, the heart-stopping Karakoram, the ethereal beauty of Norway's Lofoten Islands - all the great wild places of the Earth are captured, for the first time, in this unique volume.

For the past decade, Scottish photographer Colin Prior has journeyed more than a million miles seeking out the world's last wild places. His photography has won numerous awards and his previous books include Highland Wilderness, Scotland: The Wild Places and Living Tribes .

Picture of A Few Streets, A Few People
Publisher's Description
In Our Man in Havana Graham Greene wrote that ‘to each man a city consists of no more than a few streets, a few houses, a few people. Remove those few and the city no longer exists except as a pain in the memory, like the pain of an amputated leg no longer there.’

In this, his third book, John Comino-James shows us the world that is contained within just a few streets in the very ordinary neighbourhood of Cayo Hueso in Havana, Cuba. Through portraits and candid observation he builds an honest and intimate record of a small and tight-knit community. This is not the Havana of the tourist, but a city in which people go about their daily lives, dealing with the everyday realities that have resulted from decades of political isolation.

In a powerful and beautifully written afterword Comino-James intersperses his experiences of several vists to the area, with fascinating information on the history of Cuba and the city of Havana.

Picture of After the Flood
Publisher's Description
In late September 2005, Robert Polidori traveled to New Orleans to record the destruction caused by Hurricane Katrina and by the city’s broken levees. He found the streets deserted, and, without electricity, eerily dark. The next day he began to photograph, house by house: 'All the places I went in, the doors were just open. They had been opened by what I collectively call ‘the army,’ of maybe 20 National Guards from New Hampshire, 15 policemen from Minneapolis, 20 firefighters from New York... On maybe half of them or a third of them that I went in, I think that the occupants had been there prior. And some of them did leave certain funeral-like mementos before they left. Maybe right after the waters receded they had the chance to just--to go back to their place and just see, and realize there’s nothing worth saving.' Amidst all this, Polidori has found something worth saving, has created mementos for those who could not return, documenting the paradoxically beautiful wreckage. In classical terms, he has found ruins. The abandoned houses he recorded were still waterlogged as he entered and as he learned (by trial and error, a process that including finding a dead body) the language of signs and codes in which rescue workers had spray-painted each house’s siding. He sees the resulting photographs as the work of a psychological witness, mapping the lives of the absent and deceased through what remains of their belongings and their homes.

Picture of Paris Mon Amour

Publisher's Description
At once cosmopolitan metropolis and venue for a pensive stroll, Moloch and emblem of the modern, Paris has been a source of inspiration for countless artists and writers down the ages. But not least it is the home and constant muse of a relatively young art: photography. Since the earliest days of the daguerreotype right up to our time, renowned photographers such as Joseph Nicéphore Niepce, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Doisneau, and Jeanloup Sieff have lived and worked in the city of lights. Over the years a love affair developed between Paris and photography, giving rise to a remarkable record of the metropolis and a telling history of a new art form. This volume takes the reader on numerous walks, camera in hand, through the streets of Paris. Atmospheric black-and-white photos, shot by great photographers over two centuries, reveal the dramatic and the tranquil, the historic and the everyday—in the capital’s parks and gardens, boulevards and backstreets, passages and arcades, bistros and nightclubs.

Picture of Ratcliffe Power Station
Publisher's Description
Ratcliffe-on-Soar Power Station is located in Nottinghamshire, England. Michael Kenna first began photographing the power station in the early 1980s, and over the past several years he has visited the site many times, producing a body of work as ominous as it is beautiful. The Ratcliffe photographs take on the tonal quality of a partially lit ecosphere unique to the photographer and his subject. A brilliant manipulator of half-light, Kenna’s grainy, spatial topography epitomizes the gray skies of Northern England that were the ubiquitous backdrop to his childhood. Kenna’s Ratcliffe photographs create the impression of an atmospherically foggy day, registering the homeostasis of a mood that is a dominant characteristic of his work. Beautifully printed in duotone on matt art paper, Ratcliffe Power Station is published in a first edition of 3,000 copies. Introduction by Jeremy Reed.

Picture of Twenty Year Retrospective

Publisher's Description
In association with its original Japanese publisher, Treville, we are pleased to announce a new printing of Michael Kenna: A Twenty Year Retrospective. The Nazraeli Press edition features a larger format than previous editions, with high fidelity tritones printed 1:1 from original prints. It will serve as a companion book to Kenna’s Volume Two, to be published by Nazraeli Press in 2004. Born in the industrial north of England, Michael Kenna has lived in San Francisco since 1980. His mysterious photographs, often made at dawn or in the dark hours of night, concentrate on the interaction between natural landscape and man-made structures. His work has been shown throughout the United States, Europe, Australia and Japan, and is in such permanent collections as The Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris; The Museum of Decorative Arts, Prague; The National Gallery of Art, Washington; and The Victoria and Albert Museum, London. In her foreword, Ruth Bernhard describes Kenna’s prints as “exquisitely seductive, spiritual experiences, akin to poetry and music.” An essay by Peter C. Bunnell considers Kenna’s background and development, providing a thoughtful introduction to the 130 images that represent the twenty-year period from 1974 to 1994.

Picture of Beyond the Imaginary Gates
Publisher's Description
There are now precious few places left on earth with which we do not feel familiar, if not from first hand experience then at least from the perspective of the armchair traveller and fewer still where the camera has not yet prescribed our vision. An unrivalled collection of images of one of the last unsullied wildernesses in the world: the vast, uninhabited spaces of north-east Greenland. These beautiful, majestic and poetic landscapes exist in one of the harshest environments on earth. Roy traces the historical background with a brief outline of Greenland’s early exploration. He documents the poignant traces of the Inuit tribe their winter houses, summer tent circles and graves and enigmatic stone mosaics and the structures left by the European trappers who once plied their dog-sledges in the lonely fjords. Iain Roy’s first expedition to Greenland was in 1982, to the mountainous region of the south near Cape Farewell. He was a member of a small group of Arctic enthusiasts who shared a love of wild spaces and whose ambitions were fuelled by the accounts of earlier pioneers early whaling and expedition journals and memoirs of scientists and trappers from the pre-war period. The group pooled their resources in order to reach remote corners of a faraway region that had become their common obsession. Roy himself has since made ten expeditions to the region. Iain Roy was a reader in photography at the University of Brighton where he formerly taught history of art. He now lives in the north-west Highlands of Scotland. His Arctic photographs have been presented in various exhibitions.
