Picture of Rivers of Power

Publisher's Description

This is the story of the tragic relationship between two bodies: a critical narration of the long and failed relationship between a society and a river. Although today it is a long and winding sarcophagus, in the past the city depended on the abundance of its stream. Centuries later, with Monterrey transformed into a regional industrial enclave, the Santa Catarina River served as border between social classes: the employers on the north side, the laborers on the south. The first hydraulic engineering works were carried out at the beginning of the 20th century. In 1909, wells and dikes were routed through pipes. That same year the river overflowed and caused the catastrophic flood that took over 5 thousand lives. Entire families disappeared. Since then, the river has been serving a sentence, receiving the treatment of a beast, with its future in peril. This fear, built based on ignorant speeches, created in American universities and reproduced with strict fidelity in Monterrey, was capitalized by governments eager to make their power known. The domination of the uncontrollable body of nature is a necessary rite of passage in any industrial society. In this way, the political apparatus decided to display its strength against the Santa Catarina River, whose clamor still resonated in the city’s memory, with the inauguration of the works that channeled it to protect Monterrey and utilize the water as raw material. The prolonged engineering works were nothing short of a marvel of modernity. After the ribbon was cut, in the mid-20th century, a subconscious link was broken and a period of aridity began, not only in the landscape, but also in morality. It broke the scale. The river was a line drawn on a technical plan. In 1988, Hurricane Gilberto hit the city of Monterrey. The city once again trembled before the torrential power of its currents, which tore up houses, markets, Ferris wheels and merry-go-rounds. Leaving over 300 people dead, the destruction served as a reminder to the following generation: this is not a dead river, but a captive one. The tragedy had no end point until the year 2004 when another large-scale work of civil engineering was inaugurated, known as the Rompepicos dam or grout curtain, whose purpose was to curb the water level from its source, in the Sierra Madre Oriental. But in the year 2010 it again broke through with all its might: stoked by Hurricane Alex, the body of water managed to burst the pipes to escape, fugitive and enraged, bellowing across the entire length of the city. Those of us who heard it cannot forget that enthralling and harrowing cry of freedom. Its spirit took shape, returned to it. Faced with human pain, we hid our joy as we acknowledged its resurrection. Standing on the devastated riverbanks, we contemplated the water, enraptured by a sensual revolution. The frenzied cry of fertility of a body faced with its captor. Then we watched the same entrepreneurs build business opportunities out of the destruction. We stood witness to the engineering works that managed to bury the river once again. We were not able to stop them, or resist, because the speed of the expressways rushing along the riverside hampers any considered thought. They plundered the stone and sand of its sepulcher to use as construction materials. Today we stand thirsty as the withered body of the river is scattered throughout the city.

Publisher's Description

“I entered the Yale School of Art straight from college and left after my first semester. I was 21. I was restless, curious about the America that lay beyond New England, and had a strong interest in the movie industry; I also had heard that Garry Winogrand was somewhere in Los Angeles so in the summer of 1983 I headed west.” – Mark Steinmetz, from the Preface



Angel City West offers a touching, highly personal look at Los Angeles through the eyes of Mark Steinmetz as a young artist straight out of school. In his preface to the work, Steinmetz describes living in a studio apartment in the Miracle Mile district, complete with a futon surrounded by a dozen roach motels and a makeshift darkroom set up in a tiny nook off of the bathroom. It didn’t take long before he ran into Garry Winogrand, for whom he became a kind of unofficial chauffeur, enabling Winogrand to photograph through the car window while Steinmetz navigated the streets of his new home town.



Viewed together in book form, the 58 photographs presented in Angel City West document Steinmetz finding his own voice as an artist. In light of the later projects for which he has become so well known, this early series of street photographs, informal portraits and landscapes foreshadows the sometimes humorous, oftentimes sad, and always poignant mood that runs through Mark Steinmetz’s work.

Publisher's Description

“The end of the 1970s saw the completion of Japan's postwar construction, as well as a withering of the student movement and the various terrorist acts that had shaken the global community. The early 1980s was a brief interlude of calm, anticipating the end of the long Showa era, before Japan was deluged by the bubble economy. 



I had just returned to Japan in 1980, after studying for four years in Flanders where time moves slowly, and the atmosphere is very relaxed. In addition to the rapidly advancing westernization, the reality of this new Tokyo, where old pre-war Showa is blended with modern Showa (post-war) looked disorderly and chaotic to me, and it was not easy to capture it visually. I struggled to realize my own mode of expression in this home country of mine, and began by chasing lights of the night-time to deflect this chaos.” – Toshio Shibata, from the Afterword



Born in Japan in 1949, Toshio Shibata entered the painting department of the University of Arts of Tokyo in 1968. He later decided to continue his studies in Europe at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Gant (Belgium) where he turned to photography. It was upon his return to Japan in 1980 that he made the haunting, nighttime photographs of Tokyo presented here for the first time.

Publisher's Description

“Encountering the American west for the first time in the early 1970s, I became fascinated with the landscapes and iconography of mobile homes. In a previous century Americans migrated west in Prairie Schooners to become farmers or shopkeepers. After the Second World War they continued this ‘Westward Ho!’, but now in commercially-fabricated mobile homes, often to retirement. These new pioneers clustered in communities that transformed the western landscape and its built environment through a new architecture of mobility.

Mobile home manufacturers produce a range of styles with architectural references that animate cultural aspirations or memories of home and community left behind. After choosing a basic style, new owners make individual touches to the exterior and lawn that transform the generic into the personal. Viewed from a surrounding hillside, mobile home parks look like arabesques of uniform aluminum boxes. On close observation, however, they reveal a rich flora and fauna of personal expression and longing for both individuality and community.” – John Schott, from the Preface

The images in Mobile Homes 1975-1976 were made with an 8x10-inch Deardorff view camera in California during 1975 and 1976. This project followed photographs of Route 66 motels in 1973 and 1974, work which was included in “New Topographics: Photographs of a Man-Altered Landscape”, at George Eastman House in 1975 and John Schott | Route 66: 1973–1974, Nazraeli Press, 2014 (NZ Library: Set 1).

Publisher's Description

Born in Chicago, Illinois, in 1935, Philip Melnick grew up in Los Angeles, where he attended the University of California. In the 1970s, shooting with a medium format camera, Melnick made black-and-white photographs of his surroundings, exploring the unique sense of style found in the Southern California urban landscape. Nineteen Seventies California offers a beautifully presented selection of Melnick’s most striking work from this period, in which he displays a keen eye for the character of its vernacular architecture and the distinctive look of its streets: the quirky confluence of a single parked car with a street facing wall and a fragmented apartment building; the intersection of street, fence and another non-descript apartment house. He isolates the intricate pattern of a wall, creating arresting fusions of everyday sights and geometric abstraction. “Melnick’s images emphasize a push-pull, hard-soft tension that give his pictures distinguished style and great beauty,” wrote the late Fred McDarrah, who was himself a photographer for The Village Voice, as well as a writer, during the years that this series was produced.

Publisher's Description

Kazuo Kitai dropped out six months into his first year of art school, revealing a rebellious streak that led him to become involved in the protest movements of 1960s Japan. His first photography book, “Resistance”, was self-published in 1965. For the rest of the 1960s he continued to follow radical student protests, producing Barricade, Agitators and finally Sanrizuka in 1971.

As the 1960s came to a close, Kitai became disillusioned with political themes and turned to the everyday life of ordinary people. Kitai`s first journey was to one of the most remote parts of Japan, the Shimokita Peninsula, and photographs from this journey to Shimokita in 1970 make up the first half of this book. In 1972 and 1973 Kitai traveled again to this most northerly part of Honshu, to the neighboring area of Tsugaru, and this makes up the other half of this book.

These regions of Shimokita and Tsugaru had been very isolated and barren, with bitterly cold winters. Local language, legends and ancient beliefs had survived into the modern era. The region was known for shamanism and communion with the dead spirits gathering around the holy mountain of Osorezan.

During the rest of the 1970s, Kitai was to continue his exploration of rural areas of Japan, for which, in 1976, he received the award of the inaugural Ihei Kimura Prize, Japan`s most prestigious award for photography.

Publisher's Description

Robbert Flick, born in Holland in 1939, is a Southern California artist who uses photography as his primary medium. This gorgeous new monograph presents an important, early body of work that would inform Flick’s approach to all of his subsequent artistic activities: 

"The late 1960s was an open-ended time with very few boundaries. I was interested in rendering my photographic experience of Los Angeles, and wanted to emphasize the process of that experience. Rather than framing a moment, it became important to acknowledge it. This meant that the act of photographing became a gesture. I was also quite poor and had a limited amount of film. I kept some several dozen self-rolled films in a shoebox; whenever I went out I would reach in for four or five of them, and return them back into the box when exposed, leaving a snippet of leader so the film could be reused. I would have absolutely no idea what was on which film I put in my camera.

At the time I would think of film as an endless continuum, and there was a wish to acknowledge that aspect visually … the idea of multiple exposures was linked to ideas about simultaneity, the use of the “I Ching”  and “there is no such thing as accident”. I photographed in this manner for a period of three years."

One of the images on the cover of the book captures a moment from an Ortiz destruction event: where a piano filled with blood was hammered apart with an axe and subsequently a large number of mice were set free in mousetrap-filled areas on the floor. This Destruction Performance very much summarized the political conditions of the time and the senseless destruction of human life and landscapes engendered by the Vietnam war.

Publisher's Description

"Steve McCurry has given us the world through his iconographic image-making. He has been relentless in his pursuit of images that not only inform but sensitize us to places and people from faraway that are the D.N.A. of our planet. That he risks his life for us is of no concern to him. It is his way, an aspect of his pursuit of enduring art. That he is generous, compassionate, and humble is what drives this award-winning photographer and is what underlies his strength and the potency of his image-making.
   
McCurry is one of the best-known artists of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, and one of the most influential. His images have helped connect us to parts of the world we have never been to, humanizing our perceptions of people throughout the world.
   
But there is one image of McCurry’s that almost everyone knows, even if they don’t know who made it. We are referring, of course, to Sharbat Gula, Afghan Girl (1984).
 It is not too much to say that Afghan Girl has changed the world, “searing the heart” of viewers, owing to its power to inform our perception of humanity. For over thirty years, it has enabled millions of people to connect with another person across wide gulfs of cultural difference. It is this sense of connectedness, achieved through photography, that is McCurry’s great and rare gift to humanity."

Picture of Tokyo

Publisher's Description

“I have been recording cityscape of Tokyo since 2008. The city gives me a sense of evanescence. All the cities are formed by man’s greed and depth of it decides the size of the cities.
Every single thing existing in the cities is consisted by man intentionally. The cities transforms themselves every moment like the nature does. The city in the period of time where our identity and subjectivity has been lost in the urban environment. They city has lost traditional meaning of the perspective structure and collapsed and expand itself beyond men’s intention.

I see the future of the cities in the boundary of humans and the nature as if man’s greed were disappeared.

I want to record it by photography before it disappears.”

-Kojima Yasutaka afterword, Tokyo

Born in Tokyo in 1977 and based in New York, Kojima Yosutaka’s Tokyo documents the landscape of the city within his most recently published body of work. Published by Sokyusha, Kojima Yosutaka’s photobook collates a series of images taken in between 2008 and 2014. Within, Yosutaka’s portrayal of Tokyo presents a personal reflection upon the landscape and environment which have come to characterize and define a city through it’s structure. What is provided within the images is a representation and mirror to aspects of both time and change, as well as the overriding presence and influence of the human in the shaping of environments.

Publisher's Description

Gerry Johansson arrived for the first time in Ravenna in 2013 (as part of the Adriatic coast to Coast project).
 As usual, he parked his car and started walking, alone, in the direction that seemed more inviting to him.
 Since then, he has visited the city several times, continuing to walk and take pictures. Intrigued by a sign hanging from a tree, he took via Bosca, south of city, towards Lido di Dante.

“When i’m in a foreign country”  he says “I always read the sign and try to understand what they mean. In this case, I quickly realised that it was a place where someone was selling melons, which in Sweden have a similar name, meloner. Reading the sign, MELONIMELONI, the sound made me automatically think of the words ‘melody’ and ‘melancholy’. It was this combination of letters and sounds that urged me to start walking along via Bosca.”

Impressed by how deep the port area penetrates into the city center, creating a curious hybrid between city and industry, Johansson continued his walk along the Candiano canal, from Ravenna up to Porto Corsinin passing through some of Ravenna’s symbolic places that retain fascinating monuments of its more recent history (…)

He took pictures in the early morning using a strong flash and printed at night in a make-shift darkroom in his bathroom, using an enlarger specially shipped from New York. In this bold and striking series of photographs, the joshua trees and various desert cacti are transformed into haunting anthropomorphic figures and dancing icons. The prints themselves bear the marks of the ad-hoc printing process, with bleeding edges, fingerprints, off-kilter frames and Shaw's signature hand-written titles.
