Picture of Jantar Mantar

Publisher's Description

Born in France in 1952, Simon Chaput moved to New York City in the early 1980s, and quickly became immersed in the downtown art scene through close friends Christo and Jeanne-Claude. It was during this time that he met Isamu Noguchi, who inspired him to revisit his childhood passion for photography.

This rekindling led him to India, and the Jantar Mantar. Over the course of a year, Chaput spent time traveling to different places, and photographing the stone observatories that were built in the 18th century for the study of astronomy. It was in these early pictures that he developed his unique, poetic, and abstract style of light playing with negative space, a style that continues in his series on New York, Waterfalls, and Nudes.

While in the process of moving his studio of 30 years from Manhattan to Miami, Chaput discovered these previously unprinted images. He realized how influential they are to his whole body of work, and an intense printing session followed in his beloved darkroom. Perfectly capturing the striking combinations of geometrical forms of the Jantar Mantar, Chaput presents mysterious and romantic locations where one could spend hours in visual exploration. Indeed, he spent hours waiting for the right light and angles, and for the many visitors to have left the famous Indian sites.

Limited to 1,200 hand-numbered copies, Jantar Mantar is beautifully printed in duotone on uncoated Japanese art paper and presented in a custom slipcase. The book includes an original short story by the renowned author Salman Rushdie, written specifically to accompany Chaput’s dramatically beautiful photographs. Simon Chaput is represented in New York by the Howard Greenberg Gallery.

Publisher's Description

Destroying the Laboratory for the Sake of the Experiment

Beginning in 2006 and continuing (when time allowed) over the next four years, the poet Daniel Cockrill and I made several road trips across England, stopping at a range of towns and cities along the way. We were trying to better understand the rise of nationalism then (as now) evident in the UK, as well as notions of Englishness, concepts much discussed in the media at the time.

In a true collaboration, in that we always travelled together and experienced much the same things, Dan would write poems and I would photograph. As time progressed we witnessed our country slide into recession and the government introduce austerity measures, although little seemed to alter in the fabric of the landscape. What we did notice was something more abstract, more of a state of mind among the population as many began to blame others - and immigration in particular - for perceived misfortunes. Dan attempted to catch something of this mood in his poetry while I continued to photograph the backdrop against which the story unfolded.

Although we concluded the work in 2010 with an exhibition in London (when we collaborated with the sculptor Jim Wilson and, in particular, the designer Dominic Brookman, who created several ‘treatments’ of poems and pictures) it was not until now that we’ve chosen to self-publish the book. Looking at the work now, with the benefit of hindsight, it’s possible to sense the changing mood in the country, of which last month’s BREXIT vote was perhaps the sad but inevitable conclusion.

Picture of Message from the Exterior - Special edition

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

Publisher's Description

Message from the Exterior explores the ruins and remains of failed attempts to live in the desert’s harsh environments, depicting abandoned houses – small, often eccentric huts, both humorous and a little forlorn. Ruwedel examines the desert regions east of Los Angeles as a palimpsest of cultural and natural histories, presenting an inventory of a particular, and poignant, form of vernacular architecture; each structure might be read as a clue to the lives of anonymous individuals, and the impulse to create a home in the wilderness, however transitory. The first section, 'Desert Houses', comprises 68 desert structures, while the second section, ‘Dusk’, presents houses photographed after the sun had disappeared over the horizon, now rendered in subdued, dusky tones that suggest both present and absence, and the weight of isolation.

Mark Ruwedel (b. 1954) lives and works in California. He has exhibited and published internationally for over thirty years, and his work is represented in museums throughout the world: Tate Modern; the J. Paul Getty Museum; LACMA; The Met, New York; National Gallery of Australia, National Gallery of Canada; SF MoMA; and the National Gallery of Art, Washington, amongst others. Previous works include Westward the Course of Empire (Yale University Art Gallery, 2008); 1212 Palms (Yale University Art Gallery, 2010) and Pictures of Hell (RAM Pubs, Los Angeles, 2014). In 2014 he was the recipient of both a Guggenheim Fellowship and the Scotiabank Photography Award.

Picture of Timeless (Collector's Edition - Signed with Platinum Print)

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

Publisher's Description

The Timeless Collector Edition, limited to an edition of 50 copies plus 5 Artist Proofs, includes a signed and numbered copy of the monograph "Timeless" and a Limited Edition handmade Platinum-Palladium print of "City Tree".

Both the book and the Platinum print are enclosed in a deluxe coffret designed by the artist himself, lined in numbered and signed by the artist.

The original Platinum-Palladium print has been handmade, signed, and numbered by Rafael Rojas, master printer of this exquisite and artisanal photographic process. Every single Platinum Print is unique due to its artisanal character. This edition offers the possibility to own one of Rafael Rojas' Platinum Prints of 40x40 cm for a very advantageous price.

“Timeless” is an exclusive monograph of fine art photography in black and white of the city of Venice, by fine artist Rafael Rojas, Master Hasselblad 2014 photographer. 

The photographic plates contained in the book tackle the subject matter from an artistic and strongly personal point of view, with the aim of transcending a merely documentary photographic approach to Venice. The photographs, frequently focused on intimate details, lesser-known areas of the city and very personal interpretations of better-known locales, are subtle, sometimes minimalistic, highly atmospheric and filled with a sense of silence, calm and timeless character.

In this art book, the city of Venice becomes a visual metaphor for the duality of time. On one hand, there is a timeless character which seems to reign over the entire place. Due to the lack of references and its uniqueness, Venice seems to be an architectural mirage that defies the conventions of reality and seems to have been there since the origins of this world. On the other hand, Venice is the perfect metaphor for the passing of time, for change, for decay, for the ephemeral existence of a banal world anchored to reality.

Publisher's Description

In Childhood Memories from the Other Side of the Water, artist Eduardo del Valle depicts experiences and recollections of the first ten years of his life in Cuba, from 1951 until 1961, when he left the country of his birth, never to return. Over the past nine years, del Valle has made images that are central to his reminiscences and which portray painful aspects of his childhood that have stayed with him throughout his life and career. These memories of Cuba come together to form an outstanding visual autobiography.

Limited to only 500 copies, this is a remarkable artist’s book, comprising 84 colour photographs, beautifully printed on matt art paper and presented in a custom-designed cigar box. The book opens with an introduction by Tony Mendoza, and includes a preface by Juan A. Martinez, poems by Ellen Bass and Richard Blanco, and an afterword by Daniel Gottlieb.

For 40 years, Eduardo del Valle has worked in collaboration with Mirta Gómez, their practice and photographic series focusing on subjects in states of transformation. Their work has received international attention across the decades, with accolades including two Guggenheim Fellowships, solo exhibitions at New York Museum of Modern Art and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

Close up photographs of cars held together by tape, plastic and glue fill each frame and begin to take on the qualities of abstract art.

Picture of Dozen Failures, A (Signed)

Publisher's Description

A Dozen Failures is both a singular statement as a photobook and a commentary on a life spent making some of the classic photobooks of our time, among them The Pond, There and Gone, The Romance Industry, and Berlin in the Time of the Wall.

Every photograph is in some way perfect (as a technical feat) and in another way a failure (as representational “residue”). So what makes a picture a “failure” – something worthy of further contemplation? It goes far deeper than merely being a mistake. Failures teach us about life and the self in ways as powerful as – and far more confoundingly than – successes.

Or, as Gossage says, they show us “a love lost through lack of skill and misunderstanding.”

Picture of Topical Times for these Times Book of Liverpool Football (Special Edition - with signed print)

Publisher's Description

Since the 1980’s Ken Grant has photographed football culture in Liverpool, his home city. From youth games and local bar teams playing in district park leagues, to the weekly rituals of match days at Liverpool and Everton, he has photographed the sport - and the city’s relationship with it - in all its forms. Rarely going inside the stadia, he has instead photographed in the streets and bars outside, at the pitch sides and on buses across the city over decades.

With football serving as a central thread in the working and social lives of his contemporaries, it has always been an element of Grant’s wider work about the city. This book brings together his pictures of the game, the land and the people who populate it. A Topical Times for these Times, taking its title from boys sports annuals and the football yearbooks that prospered and inspired in the 1970s and 80s, draws on the changing landscape of Liverpool as it negotiated success and tragedy, and as a new commercial era took hold. The book is a devoted appreciation of football in the city, the game itself and those who are part of each.

An essay by the writer Niall Griffiths and a short piece by Ken Grant accompany the photographs.

Picture of Tokyo: Vision of its Other Sides 2

For this book, Masatoshi Naito selected photographs by surveying all the negatives of a series in which the photographer extensively shot Tokyo's dark side from 1970 to 1985. None of the photographs in this book have been published before or included in his book, Tokyo: A Vision of Its Other Side (1985). This new book, compiled out of these unseen photographs and edited by Yasunori Hoki, the director of SUPER LABO, vividly portrays "the other side" of Tokyo in a different style from the previous publication and includes a new foreword written by Naito himself.

“In Tokyo, there are layers of sediment from diverse times. Tokyo today. Tokyo in the time of the post-war black-markets. Tokyo in the Edo period. A day of the people in Tokyo commonly begins with getting up in the morning and going to work. When the day's work is done, they go home after stopping by shopping streets or drinking bars. Nowadays, I see crowds of people flooding all over the Tokyo city area from morning to night. The crowds are always there, from the first train to the last train of the Yamanote Line, the Chuo Line, subways and various private railways. However, when the last trains are gone, along with the businessmen and women, students, and the workers of restaurants and bars, Tokyo is deserted, and the "other face of Tokyo" emerges. Somebody gathers food dumped by bars and restaurants. Another one picks up cardboard boxes and cans that may sell. There are people sleeping on the street. Some of them are drinking alcohol. Homeless people begin to act lively. Exactly, Tokyo as a "huge life form" reveals itself.”
