Picture of Drivers in the 1980s (Collector's Edition & Print)

Publisher's Description 

Chris Dorley-Brown spent two summers in the mid 1980s photographing drivers stuck in traffic jams in and around East London. This series was his first on colour film and was created when he intended to document the privitisation of Rolls Royce but instead became fascinated by the faces in the traffic caused by the sell-off in the city. The cars, colours, haircuts and expressions of frustration capture the mood and tone of a unique era in Thatcher's Britain.

The images, all shot on film of course, have aged like a fine wine and are now ready to be consumed by the discerning connoisseur.

Collector's Editions are limited to 250 copies per title.

LIMITED QUANTITY

Nazraeli Press is delighted to announce our newest monograph by Mark Steinmetz, The Players. This long-awaited publication presents 73 of Steinmetz’s photographs of adolescent and teenaged baseball players, on the field and in the dugout, focused on the game and lost in their own worlds. Made between 1986 and 1990, the photographs are classic Steinmetz: tenderness, humor, and humanism are all present here, as is Steinmetz’s exquisite use of natural light and attention to poetic detail.

“The kids in Steinmetz’s photographs are ages 6 to 13, with a few older boys. Steinmetz must remember how awkward and uncoordinated bodies that age can be. His empathy is evident throughout the series. Most of these kids are too young to have the grace, skill or concentration required and are too green to experience the sheer pleasure of knowing they are good, maybe really good, ballplayers in an unforgiving sport. These kids run into each other in pursuit of a fly ball. Hope drives their swings more than their awareness of the art of hitting...Steinmetz concentrates less on the players in the field than those outside the base lines who are waiting to play, or cooling off. He observes the managers as well as the spectators who love the game or one of the players, or who just have a free afternoon. He sees “high fives” as well as the “what were you thinking” moments. His photographs have all the skill and grace lacking in the players.” — from the Introduction by Anne Tucker

Picture of Deeper Shades #3: Paris SIGNED

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

The much-anticipated third volume of Andreas H. Bitesnich’s urban exploration series ‘Deeper Shades’ is dedicated to that most iconic and romantic of European cities, Paris. For Bitesnich though, this idyllic view of Paris is “...too simplistic: it is pulsating, sexual and rough.”
 
Bitesnich has managed to create a unique vision of this ‘other Paris’.  While the most familiar Paris landmarks do make an appearance in the book, Bitesnich shifts them from center-stage to being just another part of the greater landscape. This is at times disorientating, as images of the city become disturbingly alien. The bustling Metro, or the elegant Tuileries become eerily empty spaces, the images evoking scenes from Hitchcock or Welles. This is vital to Bitesnich’s philosophy of looking “..behind the velvet curtain.” As with Bitesnich’s other two volumes, these dark images are often tinged with humour, either within the frame, or by the juxtaposing of images. His vision is perhaps not quite as apocalyptic as it at first appears.   

Compulsory for any admirer of Bitesnich’s travel photography (or indeed anyone who thought they knew Paris), Deeper Shades #03 is Bitesnich’s “...most personal volume to date”, and one can certainly sense the thrill he describes in creating it. It alternately surprises, entertains, amuses, revolts. It is an homage to a new friend.

Picture of Deeper Shades #2: Tokyo SIGNED

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

After New York, in his continuing book series DEEPER SHADES, Andreas H. Bitesnich turns his camera on Tokyo.

“The flawless and the raw” are Andreas H. Bitesnich’s defining elements of Japanese culture, and the way it is reflected in his own work. Certainly, anyone who has followed Bitesnich’s impressive 20 year career will recognize both these elements in the nude male and female work for which he gained an international reputation. In the context of his new book ‘Deeper Shades #02 Tokyo’ these aspects take on new and surprising form. 

A master of the controlled studio composition, Bitesnich demonstrates that he is equally at home producing perfect compositions from random street situations.

The rawness of bare flesh is replaced by analogue roughness thrust over the bare bones of urban living. Images which in themselves are surprising, almost surrealistic, become even more bizarre through the book’s use of juxtaposition, lending meaning, distorting meaning, or as with most street photography, like life itself, leaving meaning entirely open to the interpretation of the individual. Is Bitesnich presenting us with an apocalyptic nightmare, or a fond and touching representation of humanity? The choice, he seems to suggest, is yours.

Picture of Deeper Shades #1: New York SIGNED

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

The the first volume in a series of limited edition books, in which Andreas H. Bitesnich explores urban locations.

Anyone aware of Andreas H. Bitesnich’s travel photography, in particular his stunningly beautiful INDIA book, may, on an initial viewing, be a little surprised by this first ‘Deeper Shades’ volume. Can these apparently naive images really be the work of the master of technical perfection? A closer look soon reveals that Bitesnich has achieved something extremely clever. Through the grain and blur is an underlying sophistication of both the techniques employed and the artful composition. With his perfectionist’s eye, he has simply managed to free himself from the constraints of socially accepted beauty, and discovered it in a new language among the chaos of this quintessential urban landscape. 

As with INDIA, this is not a pretty travelogue, no tourist guide to the coolest locations. Deeper Shades NEW YORK captures the mood of the city, as it is lived and felt on the street. Slightly disturbing, ironically humourous, and vastly fascinating, these images are a refreshing new homage to a much loved city.

Picture of Anna et Salomé

Publisher's Description

We are excited to announce the release of our latest publication Anna et Salomé – a book of new photographs by Barcelona-based photographer Adrià Cañameras. Born in 1988 to a French father and a Spanish mother, Adrià initially cut his teeth assisting fellow photographer Misha Kominek, and has since risen to prominence within the pages of Apartamento, Dazed & Confused, Rolling Stone, Die Welt and the New York Times, as well as through his frequent work with various musicians such as El Guincho and John Talabot.

The central focus of Anna et Salomé is the Mediterranean. Developed from a personal project which allowed Cañameras to reflect on the environment he grew up around, the images were captured in various locations along the Costa Brava in Spain and on the French island of Corsica. Shot between June 2012 and March 2013 these beautiful and striking photographs function on both an abstract and geological level, and can be viewed as part survey, part celebration and part meditation.

Picture of Confluence

Publisher's Description

“Abstract beauty collides with the gritty reality of contemporary Asia in Ian Teh’s work, producing an effect that is at once mesmerising and disconcerting. If his subject is the world of the unseen – the people and landscapes that are everywhere, but strikingly unnoticed – then his images, too, draw the viewer into that nebulous space between admiration and revulsion, though there is barely a difference between the two.”
Tash Aw

 
For centuries, ships following the trade winds ventured into The Straits of Malacca, a narrow 805 km stretch of water between Peninsular Malaysia and the Indonesian island of Sumatra. Today, from an economic perspective, it remains one of the most important shipping lanes in the world, linking the Indian Ocean to the Pacific. One-quarter of the world’s traded goods, including oil, are shipped through these waters, with Port Klang as the main gateway to Malaysia. Historically, owing to Malaysia’s uniquely important position as a maritime trading hub, The Straits brought commerce but also foreign influences that fundamentally determined the nation’s cultural makeup and history. Hindu and Buddhist cultures imported from India dominated its early history for centuries. Although Muslims passed through in the 10th century, it was not until the 14th and 15th centuries that Islam first established itself on the Malay Peninsula. The rise of the colonial powers in the 19th and 20th centuries brought the Portuguese, Dutch and eventually the British into the region, followed by further migrations of Chinese and Indian workers to meet the needs of the colonial economy. Today, to sustain its economic growth, Malaysia has become the largest importer of migrant labour in the world and is one of the most multicultural societies on earth, undergoing deep transformations within its physical and cultural landscapes.
 
This series of photographs document a journey, for the most part along the short coastline of Selangor, the richest state in Malaysia. It is a contemporary portrait of a state, and in a sense a metaphor for the rest of the country. On the shore, an hour away from the nation’s glittering capital, are the gritty industrialised shipping terminals of Port Klang and the sleepy, seemingly idyllic rural towns that populate the Selangor waterfront. These images try to offer a nuanced document of what this coastline is today, and perhaps a sense of the significant changes that are ongoing. Here, where land meets sea and cultures collide, entire worlds and realities shift and merge into each other, and questions of race, belonging and identity take on new meanings. Just as prehistoric glaciers leave the mark of their earlier journeys on the land, the outward appearance of these places clearly shows the confluence of past and present.

Picture of Crystal Love Starlight

In 1992, the owners of Crystal Love Starlight were arrested for allegedly allowing prostitution in their restaurant in the Gunma prefecture of Japan; 34-year-old photographer Mayumi Hosokura came across the case while looking through old copies of a local newspaper, Jomo, and was inspired by both the story and the restaurant’s trashy moniker.

The resulting series, also called Crystal Love Starlight, has just been published by Tokyo-based Tycoon books.

“The charming meaninglessness of the flashy name – Crystal Love Starlight – and of the numerous snack bars, cabarets and love hotels throughout Japan appeals to me,” she says. “This series considers various aspects of urban life. I use images of nude girls and boys because I want to think about the gaze, especially the sexual gaze. The people in this series are the ‘anonymous youth’ and we can see them as us.”

It’s not the first time she’s shot nudes, or the transience of youth; in a previous series the Kyoto native combined softly lit nudes with hazy landscapes. This time she mixed nude studies shot in-studio in Tokyo with photographs of the restaurant, photographs of the hotels in Gunma, and images of the neon signs from the three-hour drive from Tokyo to Gunma.

“I wanted to look at Japanese suburbs and the ‘roadside-scape’ of national roads – it’s a very intimate landscape,” she says. “This region seemed to be a very good place to capture these roadside images, but I wanted to add a little bit of narrative, and for the viewer to confuse what is real and what is not.”

Publisher's Description

Pieter Hugo has garnered critical acclaim for his series of portraits and landscapes, each of which explore a facet of his native South Africa and neighboring African countries, including the film sets of Nigeria’s Nollywood, toxic garbage dumps in Ghana, and sites of mass executions in Rwanda, as well as albinos, the Hyena Men of Nigeria, honey collectors, and garbage scavengers. Kin, a collection of images shot over the past decade, focuses instead on the photographer’s family, his community, and himself. Writer John Mahoney characterizes it as the artist’s first major work to focus exclusively on his personal experience in his native South Africa, a place defined by centuries of political, cultural, and racial tensions and contradictions. Hugo describes his series as “an engagement with the failure of the South African colonial experiment and my sense of being ‘colonial driftwood.’ South Africa is such a fractured, schizophrenic, wounded, and problematic place… How does one take responsibility for history, and to what extent should one try? How do you raise a family in such a conflicted society?” This work attempts to address these questions and reflect on the nature of conflicting personal and collective narratives.

Picture of Noia

Publisher's Description

Sao Paulo and Salvador de Bahia crack houses. September/october 2008.
An endless accumulation of empty gazes perpetuates the stunned deprivation of men defeated by history. 

Everything is done to eradicate all traces of desire, rage, violence, pain, fear or animal pleasure.

Fragile shadows cut free of social control by regaining control over their bodies.

Through the degeneration of bodies and the paroxysm of emotions, the images reveal fragments of society that escape from customary analysis and visualization of the social body, but nonetheless, are its primary elements.

Confronting the inherent contradictions to the use of documentary photography, structuring a physical and psychic path overshadowed by dependence, pain, risk, hazard and unconsciousness. 

Poverty is antithetical to order. 

Bestiality is the ultimate rampart against the anaesthesia of senses and the mindset of a society that defines objects and people as commodity.

Those who emancipate themselves from physical deprivation and evade the moral order access the last magic rites of instinct, as the intimate territory of social resistance, antidote to the merchandise dream, an alternative to the violence of social stability.

The production of pornographic images may paradoxically be the only true committed position, an alternative to the violence of a social stability based on the frustration of unfulfilled lust.

Only the mingling of bodies lies beyond the reach of history, in a slow agony, under the seal of consciousness and irony, warding off death and living up to an amorous view of the world.

Picture of Another Twenty-Six Gas Stations (Signed)

Publiaher's Description

Another Twenty-Six Gas Stations is a new media artist book comprised of twenty-six screen captures culled from gas station surveillance videos found on YouTube. The book blends notions of surveillance, crime photography, advertising, and found text;  which together form an incisive dark-humor commentary on advertising and violence within the framework of online consumption.

Fifty-one years after the publication of Ed Ruscha’s seminal book work, Twentysix Gasoline StationsAnother 26 examines how the American Identity has shifted from the idyllic media messages and car culture of the 1950s and 60s, to the coarse post-9/11 age we occupy today.

Within the book, the image-text relationships work to form interweaving layers of meaning and interpretation.  The sequence ties together formal properties, textual interplay, narrative sequences, as well as several discrete visual puns and references to Ed Ruscha. The book’s elements create a meditation in morality and mortality, which challenges the viewer to either succumb to her own fascination with the violence depicted, or to look beyond the surface to discover the critique embedded within.

Publisher's Description

An art book titled Hong Kong Parr features select works from Martin Parr's recent Hong Kong project (2013) commissioned by Blindspot Gallery. The book is published to accompany his first solo exhibition in Hong Kong in September 2014.

Bridging the divide between art and documentary photography, Parr's work features the recurrent subjects of consumption, leisure, food culture and national eccentricities, which take on a vibrant rendition in his Hong Kongproject. From the faces of Mainland tourists in Hong Kong's shopping districts, local people in an entertainment whirlwind at the racecourse or the ballroom, to gory raw food in the wet market, Parr captures the intensity of urban life in Hong Kong as well as the social and cultural peculiarities of the city.

The plastic feel of the book cover is an intentional nod to consumerism which is one of the recurrent subject matters of the artist. There is also a 24-page small booklet with portraits of Hong Kong people bind in at the end of the book.

Picture of Close Your Eyes (Signed)

Publisher's Description

Close Your Eyes is a frenzied reworking of the accumulated archive of photographer Gareth McConnell. An onslaught of kaleidoscopic imagery fuses portraits he took of rave-goers in Ibiza with pictures he both shot and found of a number of key moments in recent British history, from the 1985 Battle of the Beanfield to the London Riots of 2011. Amongst this we find collected references to the Zen mystic Osho, whose people are said to have experimented with Ecstasy and taken it into clubs for the first time.

This is a personal, political body of work–a frustrated meditation on the nature of human occurrence, the power of mass communion in it’s many forms, and the delirious experience of losing oneself to hedonism from the view of someone who saw it from within. As an object, the book is an immersive experience, galvanized with the same primal energy of the rave, it’s rapture and it’s ecstasy. Rythmn, Pulse, Rave, Repeat.

Publisher's Description

"We made these photographs between October and April 2013/2014 in Sweden, in Sunne, in the middle of nowhere and far away from everything. It was winter and every Saturday night Pizzeria Sunne transformed from a fast food restaurant into a karaoke bar. This was the only place to go if you wanted to meet other people during the weekends. We gathered there to sing and drink. Together we all helped and supported each other to endure the darkness and the cold.”

SHIPPING NOVEMBER 2014. Nazraeli Press is thrilled to announce Michael Kenna’s long-anticipated monograph on France. Kenna first visited France in 1973 and has been photographing there since the early 1980s. He has produced thousands of photographs on subjects such as Mont St Michel, Le Notre’s Gardens, the Calais Lace Factories and Chateau Lafite Rothschild. France encompasses work from these projects and many others. Comprising 275 duotone plates, this gorgeous new book was edited by the artist himself, who selected both well-known and previously unpublished material from his own archive. It coincides with an exhibition of his Paris studies at Le Musée Carnavalet in October. Casebound in burgundy-dyed silk cloth and housed in an elegant gold-stamped black slipcase, France is printed in duotone on matt art paper.
