Publisher's Description

Sleeping by the Mississippi by Alec Soth is one of the defining publications in the photobook era. First published by Steidl in 2004, it was Soth’s first book, sold through three editions, and established him as one of the leading lights of contemporary photographic practice. This MACK edition launches to coincide with the first exhibition in London dedicated to the series at Beetles+Huxley gallery, and includes two new photographs that were not included in the previous versions of the book.

Evolving from a series of road trips along the Mississippi River, Sleeping by the Mississippi captures America’s iconic yet oft-neglected ‘third coast’. Soth’s richly descriptive, large-format colour photographs present an eclectic mix of individuals, landscapes, and interiors. Sensuous in detail and raw in subject, Sleeping by the Mississippi elicits a consistent mood of loneliness, longing, and reverie. ‘In the book’s 46 ruthlessly edited pictures’, writes Anne Wilkes Tucker in the original essay published in the book, ‘Soth alludes to illness, procreation, race, crime, learning, art, music, death, religion, redemption, politics, and cheap sex.’

Like Robert Frank’s classic The Americans, Sleeping by the Mississippi merges a documentary style with poetic sensibility. The Mississippi is less the subject of the book than its organizing structure. Not bound by a rigid concept or ideology, the series is created out of a quintessentially American spirit of wanderlust. Thirteen years since the book was first published, the artist’s lyrical view has undoubtedly acquired a nuanced significance – one in which hope, fear, desire and regret coalesce in the evocative journey along this mythic river.

Limited edition of 150 copies, each comprising a signed copy of the first printing of the MACK edition of the book, housed in a slipcase with a signed and numbered print [signed and numbered 1/150 - 150/150]

Picture of Saul Leiter

Publisher's Description

What is left when everything is gone?

In 2016, François Halard (b. 1961, French) visited late Saul Leiter’s almost empty apartment in the East Village, three years after his passing, in 2013. He took photographs of the decrepit walls, the empty closet, and of what Saul Leiter had left behind.

Saul Leiter (1923–2013) was an American painter and photographer whose work was deeply connected to the East Village, the neighborhood he lived in for over fifty five years. His sometimes abstract, always soulful, photography constitutes a record of street scenes in both black & white and color. After the release of a first book in 2006, fifty years after he started working, Leiter has been considered a pioneer in color photography, even if he would have resented the use of the word; he just happened to have his camera with him, never particularly planning to take photographs as he explained in the 2011 documentary In No Great Hurry: » I don’t know if I’m going to get what I’m going to get «.

François Halard somehow manages to catch the spirit of Saul Leiter, turning the pages you feel he might appear in the next spread. Or at least his cat will. But the space remains beautifully empty. Except for the bodies and people present in the photographs he left behind which François Halard photographed as part of the interior. This might be the most surprising element yet; bodies and people appearing in François Halard’s photography, most of the time strictly uninhabited. They are Halard’s homage to Saul Leiter.

Picture of Milky Way

Publisher's Description

Milky Way is a series of pictures of the author’s (b. 1974, French) wife and child during breastfeeding. The aesthetic aspect is determined by the feeding behaviour which imposes its geometry on bodies and on space they occupy. These images contain familiar echoes of classic icons but adorn themselves with modern elements. From these everyday moments, seized with harshness, without bitterness, emerges the force of exchanges between two beings and the milk becomes, as in the Greek legend of the Milky Way, the vector of a world under construction.

Picture of Kito

Publiser's Description

Masako Tomiya is a photographer originally from the region of Aomori, north Japan. She has lived in Tokyo for years, and one day, she received news that her sister and sister-in-law, who live near her hometown, were both pregnant. This news inspired Tomiya’s series Kito, a reflection on identity, family, transmission and the passing of time.

“Kito” means “homeward” in Japanese. Inverted, “toki” takes on a completely different meaning: “time”. In her poetic series, Tomiya plays with this dual sense. Her reflective photographic journey is undertaken with a subtle meditation on nature, and its seasonal transformation, alongside a representation of human life through women. Tomiya stages self-portraits and captures the daily lives of her mother, sisters and new-borns, to explore how her sense of home has altered with time.

I’ve lived my life asking myself
“What am I? What is this world?”
For a long time, I wandered without answers, and before I knew it I was older.
Had time flown by, or was it all a dream resembling a memory?
This story transcends time and meaning and self
by staring down the idea of “myself.”

Picture of Confessionali (Special Edition)

Publisher's Description

'Confessionals' is a departure from the landscape work for which Kenna has become known and is the culmination of over 10-years work, travelling through Reggio Emilia, a city in northern Italy, to document hundreds of Catholic confessional booths.

'Confessionals' is a typology of confessional booths from a distinct geographical region, documenting booths from the 13th century to the present. Shot in black and white, each booth is uniformly the focal point of each image, framed by the details of the church interior which happen to be in shot albeit a crucifix, pillar or ladder offering small clues as to the church's architecture and context in which the booth is placed.

Kenna's careful composition of the booths symbolises what he continues to search for in his photography, 'the invisible with the visible, the intangible contained with the tangible, the illusion of reality'. Kenna is not interested in documenting man's physical presence, but rather the traces that he has left behind and he believes Confessionals to be containers of memories and hidden secrets . Each photograph displays immaculate detail and continues ongoing fascination with capturing memories and stories, viewing the booths as containers of memory and hidden secrets.

This series is greatly influenced by Kenna's religious upbringing. As a child, each week he would visit the dark confessional box in his local church of St Bede's, Widnes and confess his sins to the local priest. Kenna recalls, 'I would feel greatly relieved leaving the church - I was never sure if it was because I was forgiven, or because I didn't have to go through the ritual again for at least another week.'

The special edition consists of a purple silk-covered box, the book Confessionali and one photo (the same on the cover) printed in digital, signed and numbered by Michael Kenna (50 copies: 5 for the authors and publisher, 45 on sale, 3 already sold) protected in a gray paper folder, contained inside the box.

Publisher's Description

“Mark Steinmetz makes photographs of ordinary people in the ordinary landscapes they inhabit. His frames document those fluid moments of real, lived life, moments not just grabbled or stolen, but ones where he says, ‘It’s important to take an internal pause.’ An element of the seeming offhand magic in his photographs is how his sense of this “internal pause,” of a near cinematic freeze frame, only enhances his images’ apparent spontaneity. The best art often hides its technique . . . Steinmetz is, in fact, is a “street” photographer: a 21st century embodiment of the 19th century flâneur, a man in the world, sensitive to ephemeral moments as photographic capsules of our larger lives. This will come as no surprise to anyone who knows Steinmetz’s artistic history as a mentee of Garry Winogrand.

You don’t have to be a creature of the urban streetscapes that Steinmetz so closely observes in this book in order to “get” his work. From his books of photographs of Greater Atlanta, to the small world of a children’s baseball diamond in The Players, Mark Steinmetz’s camera focuses closely on these ordinary, even banal, moments of people’s daily lives, even when in some images, the people themselves are absent at the instant of the camera exposure. Like the more formal compositions of Cartier-Bresson, Steinmetz’s photographs capture their own “decisive moment,” less stylized for sure, but often more animated: simply the images of an “American” photographer.” — From the Introduction by John Bailey

Volume 2 in Mark Steinmetz’s triology Angel City West. Building upon the narrative he began with Volume 1, published in NZL Set 2, Steinmetz presents 51 previously unpublished photographs made during his stay in Los Angeles in 1981–84.

John Bailey, renowned cinematographer and expert on the history of cinematography, provides a thoughtful introduction from the perspective of his own chosen medium, as well as that of a Los Angeles native.

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

Publisher's Description

Paul has for many years made studio works using material gathered from the landscape, stones, shells, and driftwood. In common with many people, always taking home treasures from the sea. For him, they act as an aide – memoir, bringing the landscape into the studio, a mere glimpse or touch recalling the feelings of being alone, being remote. Over many years Paul has been developing this project, this body of work, for the first time a full account of this ever developing art is being published in book form, Paul calls them Seaworks.

‘The work, building on themes developed over thirty-five years, tries to find the awe-inspiring in that which is easily passed by. It contains issues of fragility, beauty and transience in the landscape: marks and scars left by man and the potential threat to the few remaining areas of wilderness. Looking at the micro and thinking about the macro, I aim for each print to be a beautiful, irresistible, thought provoking object.’

Picture of Fragile (Special Edition)

75 available with signed printed A3 print of cover image.

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 exposures – 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.

Picture of Das Auge der Liebe (The Eye of Love)

Publisher's Description

First published in 1954, Das Auge der Liebe (The Eye of Love) by the Swiss photographer René Groebli is a small book featuring images that were made during the honeymoon with his wife Rita in France.

In Groebli's own words: "I tried to convey the typical atmosphere of French hotel rooms. There were so many impressions: the poor-looking furniture in a cheap hotel, the word 'Amors' embroidered on the curtains. And I was in love with the girl, the girl who was my wife. I think a series of photographs should be compared with a novel or even a poem rather than a painting: let us tell something!"

This poem in black and white is now ready for another closeup. Sturm & Drang is proud to present this extended re-edition of "Das Auge der Liebe" with five additional images chosen by the photographer.

Das Auge der Liebe from René Groebli is presented as a limited edition hardcover book. This First Edition of this reprint with 30 plates is limited to 1000 numbered copies.

New extended re-edition of the original 1954 book without glassine wrapped cover.

Picture of Think of Scotland (Limited Edition)

Publishing Sept 2017 - advance ordering recommended as only 50 copies available worldwide.

Publisher's Description

This stunning limited edition of 50 copies includes a print numbered and signed by Martin Parr. The image is entitled Gourock Lido, 2004 , and features the Gourock Outdoor Pool, which is a salt water public lido in Gourock, Renfrewshire, Scotland. It is the oldest heated swimming pool in Scotland. Ian Galt, the swimmer in the print of Gourock lido says about Martin Parr’s photograph: “It must have been a particularly wild night – there’d obviously just been a rainstorm. The colours work beautifully – that grey against that aquamarine – and the photograph captures something of our Scottish eccentricity: the storm clouds and the rain, and the eccentric local who decided to go swimming when no one else would.”

For over 25 years Martin Parr has been taking photographs in Scotland. From the streets of Glasgow, to an island agricultural show in Orkney, Parr has built a huge archive of photographs. This body of work is Parr’s largest archive that has remained unpublished and weaves together some of the expected visual iconography of Scotland such as highland games and stunning landscapes, but all given the Parr twist that makes the expected look so unfamiliar.

Picture of Tyre Choice (Signed)

Johansson's witty selection of photos of vehicle tyres, some in expected locations, some incongruous - exploring their accidental sculptural qualities

Publisher's Description

Tyre Choice [taɪə tʃɔɪs] is a term mostly used in the world of motor racing. To make the right tyre choice for the circumstances – at the right time – is essential for success. It can make the difference between winning and being lapped by the winner.

Choosing Tyres [chü-ziŋ tʃɔɪs] choosing the ‘right’ tyres. Different tyres can be right for different purposes. For instance, the American artist Robert Rauschenberg choose a high profile cross-ply tyre to fit around a goat in his installation “Monogram” from 1955–1959.

Getting Tyred [gä-tən tajɚd] having the tyres fitted by someone else. If “tire”, the American spelling of tyre, beware of misunderstanding.

Photographs made between 1962 and 2016 in Sweden, Mongolia, USA, Japan, Spain and Germany.

The extent of its special edition and the amount of images is an homage to the 107% rule, which indicates that twenty four cars can take the start of a Formula 1® race, and the fact that each driver was limited to twelve laps per qualifying session, traditionally before 1996.

Publisher's Description

Invited to confront himself to the heritage of the Grotte Chauvet, Raphaël Dallaporta has imagined an immersive visual approach as if we were physically entering the cave.

For ten years, Raphaël Dallaporta has developed photographic protocols which allow him to renew our look on a given subject, through unexpected images. The panoramas he imagined for the Chauvet Cave go beyond the traditional limits of the photographic medium, in order to account for the tortuous landscape of the cave, marked by engravings and paintings dated at 36 000 B.C. Inspired by the architect Richard Buckminster Fuller, Raphaël Dallaporta’s approach aims at rendering on a plane surface the 360° views of the cave.

These photographs reveal in a single image the different layers of history, from the first images of humanity to the current landscape, modelled by the water. These striking photographs skillfully blend together science, technique and artistic creation.

First volume – photographs

Publisher's Description

This luxurious, silk-bound limited edition presents highlights from Sugimoto’s beloved Theaters series

Published in an edition of 400 signed and numbered copies, Snow White is a unique collector’s edition book containing 75 artworks by Hiroshi Sugimoto (born 1948). All of the photographs in Snow White are from his Theaters series and include many of his well-known photographs of classic movie palaces and drive-ins, along with new photographs of Italian opera houses and abandoned theaters. Sugimoto began the Theaters series four decades ago. To make these images, he opens the shutter inside the dark theater (or in the case of the drive-ins, outside at night) for the duration of the movie. The running movie is the only source of light bringing out the architectural details of these spaces. The Disney movie Snow White was running when Sugimoto photographed “Palace Theater, Gary (2015), one of the abandoned theaters that is reproduced here.

In this book, Sugimoto reveals for the first time the movies that were screened when he took these photographs and the exposure time of each photograph. Each artwork in Snow White is accompanied by the name of the movie, its running time and a short text about each written by Sugimoto. The black-and-white photographs are hand-tipped onto the pages and the book is bound in silk cloth. Each copy contains a numbered colophon signed by Sugimoto.

Publisher's Description

New, two different covers

While it’s been more than twenty years since moving to Tokyo, I’ve never grown tired of how, day by day, the city fluctuates and grows. But on the other hand, it has become hard to see the embodiment of our true humanity - perhaps this loss is a consequence of our unchecked modern urban proliferation.

Years ago, while I was photographing and living among nomads in Tibet I was struck by the way in which those there live and coexist powerfully with the earth. I honed this feeling through making portraits of the people I encountered. Compared with my experiences there I felt that, as photographic subjects, through the convenience of modern life the citizens of Tokyo lacked something that those in Tibet naturally possessed.

But was this really so?

Making an effort to observe Tokyo well, one should be able to discover those living strongly with the same radiance of human nature coexisting within the city. This belief led me to begin a daily attempt to seek out with my camera those who exist and thrive within their natural, yet urban, habitat.

Indeed, ten years have passed and in my eyes the dense sprawl of Tokyo is an ecosystem with magnificent circulation.

Artist's edition of Karen Knorr's Belgravia, which includes a 28x35cm signed and numbered print from the series, presented alongside a copy of the book, in an elegant bespoke clamshell case.

Of the photograph Knorr recalls "In Belgravia, there are two photographs of the same very charming subject, a deb’s delight. One is on the cover, and the other inside the book accompanying the quote on the back cover of the book. Both photographs were taken on the same afternoon in 1979. He was confident of his charms and definitely a perfect “dish” or debs to bag. He appears in the first photograph the cover: tall, handsome, rosy cheeked gazing lovingly at his own reflection (emulating his hero, Brian Ferry) he poses legs apart, in the hall way of his parent’s 1960’s penthouse flat. In the other photograph (offered as a special edition print), taken in the dining area, he lounges back in his black bow tie, white smoking jacket and tuxedo trousers, striped socks peek above his loafers. He is almost pouting as he sits foot resting on the classic Eames chair. The penthouse was the perfect stage. Apparently it had been originally designed for Elizabeth Taylor, while filming Cleopatra in London in 1963."

The edition is strictly limited to 30, and sold on a first come first served basis.
