Picture of LBM Dispatch #6: Texas Triangle

Publisher's Description

From November 19 through December 3, The LBM Dispatch was on the road in the Lone Star State, exploring the people, places, and mythology of the megapolitan area known as the Texaplex. Our rambles in this 60,000-square-mile, roughly triangular territory, home to more than 70% of the Texas population, included the cities of Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin, Houston, Galveston, and San Antonio, as well as countless small communities where the Old South and the Wild West converge to create an utterly unique culture that continues to loom large in the national imagination. The results of those travels is Texas Triangle, which includes pictures and stories from the 50th anniversary of the J.F.K. assassination, Texas high school football playoffs, Thanksgiving in Houston, the birthplace of Jack Johnson, and the State’s 16th (and final) execution of 2013.

Picture of LBM Dispatch #4: Three Valleys

Publisher's Description

From February 12th through February 28th, Alec Soth and Brad Zellar were on the road in California, traveling in the Valleys of Silicon, San Joaquin, and Death for the fourth installment of The LBM Dispatch. While each of these valleys has a distinct character, all of them loom large in the country’s history and mythology of success, failure, dreams, and futility. Continuing The Dispatch’s examination of community in the 21st-century United States, Three Valleys explores the brave new worlds and pervasive virtuality of Silicon Valley, the Depression-era remnants of agricultural settlements and immigrant communities in the San Joaquin, and the other-worldly boom-and-bust landscapes of Death Valley, where the Manson Family holed up at the tail end of the 1960s.

The LBM Dispatch is an irregularly published newspaper of the North American ramblings of photographer Alec Soth and writer Brad Zellar.

Picture of LBM Dispatch #5: Colorado

Publisher's Description

For the fifth edition of The LBM Dispatch, Alec Soth and Brad Zellar hit the road in early May and drove through a snowstorm across the plains, headed for the Rocky Mountains. They visited dozens of towns in Colorado, met hundreds of people, and spent two weeks roaming both sides of the Continental Divide and battling the altitude, weather, technical problems, and the unshakeable John Denver. The result was the most challenging and, in many ways, most harrowing Dispatch trek yet.

Picture of Upon Paper 2: Color

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

Publisher's Description

Each edition of UPON PAPER is dedicated to a different theme, a leitmotif that presents the most varied perspectives and positions on that subject.

The second issue has taken color as its main theme. The majority of the authors and artists who explore this topic are equally uncompromising in what they do. This quality has become apparent to me during my personal encounters with them, but it is also plainly present in their works. For example, Peter Saville’s cover for New Order’s biggest hit, Blue Monday, was designed in the form of a floppy disk. Neither the name of the song nor the artist were to be found on the cover. The design became a part of a “cool code” that Peter, long since a pop icon himself, instilled into his work for the sake of posterity. Possessing the necessary “coolness” himself, Saville showed almost no interest in the rules of cover design (for example, including the name of the band and the title in the upper third of the layout) and provided New Order’s album Power, Corruption and Lies with a color-coded alphabet: He has taken this work as the basis for a new piece created exclusively for UPON PAPER.

ritish photographer Nick Knight particularly enjoys working with manipulation and defamiliarization. With his labor-intensive techniques, he searches for new paths for photography, both in the darkroom and on computer. He once dedicated more than three years to studying all 6.5 million of the preserved specimens of flowers and plants exhibited in London’s Natural History Museum — in order to finally take 50(!) pictures. His work British Birds is likewise the product of several years spent on the dramatic ‘composing’ of carefully edited individual shots.

My friend Walter Pfeiffer had to earn fame and cult status abroad before finally receiving appropriate recognition — thirty years later — in his native Switzerland. His thoroughly personal images are full of strange, comical moments: He has been capturing them since the early seventies in an aesthetic that sometimes resembles the snapshots of a photographic diary. The selection of backgrounds and props in his works provides them with a very distinctive and consistently applied signature style.

In the early sixties, Hermann Nitsch’s publicly performed “actions” in Vienna and his Schüttbilder (“poured paintings”) repeatedly led to conflicts with the authorities and to weeks-long jail terms: These eventually led the artist to move to Germany in 1968. Twenty years later, the same city recognized him with its City of Vienna Award for Fine Arts. Nearly twenty years after that, this recognition of his work was reputedly not enough to prevent the Friends of the National Gallery in Berlin from heatedly debating whether or not they should appear as official organizers of a Nitsch retrospective at the Martin-Gropius-Bau.

It was also the swinging sixties that bore the photographer David Bailey. His vigorous lighting techniques and directness have defined him as not only an icon himself, but one of Britain’s most powerful black and white chronicler of each epoch he captures. His latest works, an unexpected stretch of roses in colour, stand to point to a photographic skill unparalleled in defining the very now, but its beauty simultaneously transcending to the infinite. In the recent watercolors presented in this issue, Kim Gordon (Sonic Youth) interprets the relationship between audience and performer in an abstract idiom, with colors possessing a powerful aura. In an interview with art editor Boris Pofalla, the all-around talent talks about paper, performativity, and New York in the 1980s.

Gavin Watson’s portraiture of the infamous skinhead scene of early 1980s Britain is given a new lease of life with the release of unseen colour photographs of teenage Watson and school friends holidaying. Watson’s intimate narration provides an emotional insight into one of the most controversial subcultures to have ever existed. Music writer Wyndham Wallace examines Talk Talk’s pivotal album Colour of Spring, and the enduring relationship with sleeve artist by James Marsh. Artists published in Color also includes Erwan Frotin, Michele Abeles, David Benjamin Sherry and Steve Shapiro.

You can imagine that the uncompromising format of UPON PAPER magazine initially led a number of vendors to shake their heads in skeptical disbelief (“too big,” “too bulky”). On the other hand, how many times have readers had to shake their heads at the continual cultivation of mediocrity? With our great ambition, we have achieved something extraordinary—not just in our choice of format—and have thus ultimately found a worthy home among readers and vendors. For the editorial vision of a publication such as this, the deciding criterion is ultimately the same as that of photography: What is worth looking at? Take a look for yourself.

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

Publisher's Description

Each edition of UPON PAPER is dedicated to a different theme, a leitmotif that presents the most varied perspectives and positions on that subject. In the first edition the theme is Los Angeles; a city in which it is not only dreams that are larger than life.

Californian artist Doug Aitken talks about his seductive multimedia work; Beach Boys expert Jon Stebbins writes about the creation of arguably the most long awaited album in pop music history – SMiLE; and we discover the new, intelligent Hollywood in Sofia and Roman Coppola’s Directors Bureau. Author Travis Jeppesen presents a portrait of the life-partner of novelist Christopher Isherwood: the painter and draftsman Don Bachardy — A Singular Man. We witness the birth of the skater scene in the empty pools of early-1970s Los Angeles, captured in the thrilling photographs of Hugh Holland.

The heterogeneous architecture of a city, which already understands the twentieth century as an antique age, will also be illuminated: the German artist Veronika Kellndorfer speaks with the Californian architect Mark Lee about their work and will also be represented by a piece that takes the famous Lovell Beach House as its theme. The prize-winning architect Michael Maltzan investigates his fascination with Los Angeles, his adopted home, in an essay from his book No More Play.

Juan José Gurrola and John Valadez represent L.A.’s Mexican art scene, which has recently attracted attention due to the group exhibition Pacific Standard Time. The exhibition will tour to its only European port of call, Berlin’s Martin-Gropius-Bau, in March 2012.

The dark side of the City of Angels is also investigated, for instance, in a feature about the downfall of the Hollywood star Montgomery Clift. Once as famous as Marlon Brando, he experienced one of the slowest suicides in show business as a result of a tragic accident and the drug addiction that followed.

Other features are devoted to Wim Wenders’ relationship with Hollywood, Peter Cain’s paintings of gas stations, David Hockney’s swimming pool images of the sixties and seventies, as well as Bob Mizer’s early photographs of Arnold Schwarzenegger as a young Adonis. Marion Blackburn takes us on a voyage West with Jack Kerouac, and Karl Lippegaus traces the exodus of the musical genius Charles Mingus from L.A. to New York.

Publisher's Description
In William Shakespeare's play As You Like It, Orlando declared 'All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players'.

Picture of Fashion Magazine - Austin, Texas
Publisher's Description
Following the success of the Fashion Magazines edited by Martin Parr, Bruce Gilden and Alec Soth, Magnum Photos now entrusts the creation of the fourth edition to the acclaimed photographer Lise Sarfati. Sarfati is the winner of numerous awards, including the Prix Niepce and the Infinity Award from the International Center of Photography (New York). In this new issue, Lise Sarfati returned to Austin, Texas, to photograph in their natural context the young women she had worked with on her earlier projects. The girls have changed, they are a little older, and some about to emerge from adolescence.

In 'Austin, Texas - Fashion Magazine', Lise Sarfati explores territories of childhood, adolescence and adult womanhood, and seeks to record possible becomings. Explorations of identity that are encouraged by the clothing, which is both incidental and essential: on the one hand, the clothes seem to have been chosen for each model, on the other, they are secondary to the staging of the photo and the role played by the girls.

Sheathed in new clothes, the girls are no longer completely themselves; they've not just slipped into a different outfit, but a different skin.
