Picture of Columbia Road (Collector's edition and print)

Publisher's Description

Book 7 from the series 'East London Photo Stories' + PRINT

A fully cloth-covered Collector's Edition of Columbia Road by Johanna Neurath presented in a bespoke cloth-covered clamshell box complete with signed and numbered limited edition print.

This Collector's Edition is limited to 150 copies.

Edition numbers allocated from lowest to highest as orders are processed.

East London photographer Johanna Neurath has ventured down Hackney’s Columbia Road nearly every Sunday for the past ten years to visit its flower market. Rather than depicting the obvious prettiness of people and their flowers Neurath turns her attention to the colour and pattern left behind as the market clears out, focussing on strangely beautiful displays in gutters, hazy reflections in windows and the abstract forms created by fag butts and polystyrene cups strewn across the road.

This book fuses still life and street photography to celebrate the beauty and chaos of one of East London's most famous markets.

Picture of Toy Soldiers

Publisher's Description

October 2015 marks the 40th anniversary of the outbreak of conflict in Western Sahara. It is a conflict that remains unresolved and has resulted in an estimated 160,000 people being made refugees, many of whom are now 2nd or 3rd generation.

In Toy Soldiers, Simon Brann Thorpe blurs the boundaries between document, landscape and concept-based photography to explore this conflict. He examines the impact and potential consequences of the stalemate. Through real soldiers – posed as toy soldiers – he reveals the current situation in Western Sahara, a nation in waiting trapped in an historic cycle of colonial conflict, displacement and endless non-resolution.

The work is a unique collaboration between Thorpe, a military commander and the men under his command. Shot entirely on location in the isolated and hauntingly beautiful territory known as ‘Liberated Western Sahara’ it is influenced by the historic works of photographers such as Mathew Brady, Roger Fenton and Edward Curtis. Toy Soldiers provides a contemporary archive on the issue of non-resolution and the paradigm of post colonial cycles of violence within modern conflicts.

Publisher's Description

Mike Mandel is best known for his project The Baseball-Photographer Trading Cards, as well as his collaborations with the late Larry Sultan. Mandel employs conceptual structures and social commentary underneath a playful presentation. For The Baseball-Photographer Trading Cards, Mandel travelled across the US in 1974, posing 134 photographers and curators as ball players, and photographing them. Participants included famous figures (Ansel Adams, Imogen Cunningham, Harry Callahan, Minor White, Aaron Siskind, William Eggleston, Ed Ruscha, John Szarkowski) as well as lesser-known artists. Cards were made of each participant, and included “stats” such as height, weight, home, favorite camera and a personal statement. The original cards were sold in packs of ten. This boxed collection contains facsimiles of Mandel’s original publications, long out-of-print, including The Baseball-Photographer Trading CardsMyself: Timed ExposuresSeven Never Before Seen Portraits of Edward Weston, plus previously unpublished work and ephemera from the projects, including selected facsimile contact sheets from the baseball photo shoots, Motel PostcardsPeople in CarsMrs. Kilpatric, a letter to Mandel from Charis Wilson regarding Edward Weston and a pack of ten of the original 1975 baseball cards.

Picture of CAMP 1979

Publisher's Description

IMAGE SHOP CAMP, an independent gallery,was opened in 1976,at multi-tenant building located at 2 chome street in Tokyo’s Shinjuku district. 6 graduates of “WORK SHOP Daido Moriyama class" includes me were participated. This is where, I showed my photos of Tokyo from January to December 1979,in a radically new way. The series, PHOTO EXPRESS: TOKYO(Shashin Tokkyubin: Tokyo),was accompanied by a monthly,16-page booklet,with issues numbered 1 to12.The shooting location was the center of 2 chome street in Shinjuku around CAMP. I presented grids of images or enlarged prints,impromptu,immediately after the photo session,almost in real time.Occasionally I transform the gallery into a darkroom,projecting the images directly onto bromide paper attached to the wall,then applying developer and fixer with a sponge. The interval between the various phases of shooting,developing,exhibition,publication,and dis-semination was thus reduced to a minimum.far from wishing to embody an intension that would be prior to the act of taking the photograph,I sought to produce images in a mechanical way,beyond my control: The accidental became a means of experiencing the world.

Picture of Our Ocean's Edge (Special Edition -  Signed)

Publisher's Description

Special edition of 100 copies, each with a signed and numbered original archival pigment print, presented with a signed copy of the book in a custom clamshell box.

California made history with the creation of the nation’s first statewide system of ocean parks − a network of 124 Marine Protected Areas stretching from Oregon to the Mexico border. Like national parks on land, MPAs are magnificent in beauty and wildness while providing protection for wildlife, solutions to climate change, and recreational resources for all. Soon after the system was established, photographer Jasmine Swope set out to capture the essence of the marine parks. Her quest took her up and down California’s 1,100-mile long coastline. The result is “Our Ocean’s Edge,” a photographic documentary project coupled with original narratives written by author Dwight Holing that celebrates these fragile seascapes while increasing awareness about their natural benefits and inspiring conservation action. This beautiful clothbound monograph comprises 55 plates beautifully printed in duotone, and opens with a foreword by Wallace J Nichols.

Picture of Long Never, The (Signed)

Publisher's Description

The Long Never is a special-edition book containing 65 artworks by Hiroshi Sugimoto (born 1948). Composed of photographs from five series--Meteorites, Dioramas, Pre-Photographic Time Recording Devices, Lightning Fields and Seascapes--the sequence of images in this book conjures a natural history of the planet, perhaps even one untouched by humans. The black-and-white photographs are hand-tipped onto the pages of the book, which is wrapped in silk cloth. Celebrated author Jonathan Safran Foer has written an original story for the volume. Foer's text sits on the page underneath each artwork, so the reader must lift up each photograph in order to read the story. The Long Never is limited to an edition of 360 copies. It is housed in a custom-made brushed aluminum slipcase. Each copy contains a colophon with the number of the edition and is signed by Sugimoto.

Picture of All Eyes on Me (One Picture Book #86)

Publisher's Description

“Life deals you a hand. A Royal Flush... a pair of Twos.

Our American legacy, the horrors behind us, the gaps between us, the permeating malice. It's palpable.

These pictures speak. I don't need to say much. Our past, our present... whispers of the future.

Actions and reactions, losing hands and stacked decks. Suspicious looks, sideways glances, expectations, but not of success.

Lots of Twos.”

— Doug Rickard

Picture of Mühit (Signed)

Publisher's Description

"It was back in 1991, somewhere outside of Ganja, that I took my first glance at the world. The recent collapse of the USSR was affecting life in every imaginable way. The future was grim, local industry had practically disappeared and the people were fleeing abroad from a total loss of hope in any viable outcome. The void developed by this situation created the perfect seeding ground for cultural decadence.

That same year the Nagorno-Karabakh war was at its peak, claiming over 30,000 lives and forcing the surrounding population to be constantly displaced as the territories changed sides, and back again. The aftermath of the war is still clearly visible today, be it on the surface or deep in the core of the region and its people. I remember visiting my father on the frontline when I was just two or three years old. For such a young child, those endless and tedious hours in transit were simply unbearable. I eventually found a way to pass time, by letting my imagination run wild and weave itself into reality. Time went faster that way.

Those trips, and what they involved, are probably the source of my choice of profession and lifestyle. After several years living abroad, I decided to return to Azerbaijan to look back at my childhood. Such a trip could make anyone feel dizzy. Sometimes your expectations end up being unfulfilled and you are left with a bittersweet reality instead. My visits to my native region brought upon me both a familiar and alien feeling. Seeing my country, though estranged eyes, walking the Ganja streets, walking to hunt down my own memories because they turned out to be the only thing I could trust".

Picture of Civil Dawns, The

Publisher's Description

British artist Darren Almond has been known for his works using variety of media, including sculpture, films as well as photography. This The Civil Dawns consists of 2 photographic series. “Civil Dawn@Giverny” is a series of photographs taken in the Claude Monet’s garden at Giverny in the winter and summer, while “Civil Dawn@Mt. Hiei” photographed foggy Mt. Hiei. Images of both series are captured by exposing to the momentary light of the break of dawn. Releasing its brilliance, “Civil Dawn@Giverny” depicts momentary, spontaneous faces of flowers in Monet’s garden at the very moment a day breaks. Those pictures, photographed with large-format Polaroid, which apparatus is discontinued already, seem like homage to the Impressionist.
“Civil Dawn@Mt. Hiei” is a series produced in Japan, where Almond has taken particular interests in its culture and drawn his inspiration to works. He has visited Japan several times since 1990s and created numbers of works adopting the ideas he got through sceneries seen and incidents encountered during his visits. The morning twilight Almond pictured charms us with its gentle lights, recalls our nostalgia, although no humans are appeared in the pictures. Time is unchanging and eternal – while his masterwork, installation of timepieces, symbolically implies accurate passage of time, Almond contrarily sheds light on the twinkling of momentariliness in these series. Coloured with 2 pigments from the original prints, these two series are mingled and presenting another fascination here in this book.

Picture of Far

Publisher's Description

This previously unpublished series of photographs was made in Siberia in the early 1990s while Dubuisson was working as assistant director in a film crew shooting a documentary about the former Soviet Union. Challenged by the extreme conditions, filming was difficult and Dubuisson began taking pictures with a small all-weather camera around the villages in the Yamal Peninsula where gas workers, scientists and local reindeer herders lived and worked. On his return to Moscow, Dubuisson struggled to process his film and believed his negatives to have been damaged beyond repair. It is only recently that he returned to this material and has finally been able to produce photographic prints. The resulting images offer a strange, poetic vision of the bleakness of Siberia evoking its remoteness in both time and space through a combination of Dubuisson’s singular scenes of sub-zero life and the unintentional effects of the passage of time and the photographic process. As Boris Mikhailov writes in his foreword to the book:

Everything here reminds me of the cold, of life without a fridge; and the terrible smoke, which covers the sky...I also see traces of dust and fingerprints, which tell a story of their own.

Publisher's Description

Peter Mitchell's follow up to the sell-out Strangely Familiar is a scarecrow odyssey. His new book boldly maps out the passing of time by pairing these surreal totems in the landscape opposite personal ephemera. The juxtaposition of commonplace objects with the Everyman form of the scarecrow highlights the quirky and eccentric view Peter has shown throughout his work - the humdrum and mundane becomes weird and wonderful, the ordinary becomes extraordinary. This is a document of both the literal and the allegorical: blank scarecrow faces in empty landscapes with muted skies connect to a bleak pastoral sensibility, while hoarded belongings map out Peter's life chronologically. Peter, a child of the Air-Fix generation, recorded this collection of scarecrows over many years and presents this as an autobiography.

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.
