Picture of Uncommon Places: The Complete Works

Publisher's Description

Originally published in 1982, Stephen Shore’s legendary Uncommon Places has influenced more than a generation of photographers. Shore was among the first artists to take colour beyond the domain of advertising and fashion photography, and his large-format colour work on the American vernacular landscape stands at the root of what has become a vital photographic tradition over the past forty years. 

Uncommon Places: The Complete Works presents a definitive collection of the landmark series, and in the span of a decade has become a contemporary classic. Now, for this lushly produced reissue, the artist has added twenty more images and a statement discussing the rediscovery of photographs never previously printed and what it means to expand a classic series.

Like Robert Frank and Walker Evans before him, Shore discovered a hitherto unarticulated vision of America via highway and camera. Approaching his subjects with cool objectivity, Shore retains precise internal systems of gestures in composition and light, through which a parking lot emptied of people, a hotel bedroom, or a building on a side street assumes both an archetypal aura and an ambiguously personal importance. In contrast to his signature landscapes with which Uncommon Places is often associated, this expanded survey reveals equally remarkable collections of interiors and portraits.

An essay by noted critic and curator Stephan Schmidt-Wulffen and a conversation with Shore by fiction writer Lynne Tillman examine his methodology as they elucidate his roots in the Pop and Conceptual art movements of the late 1960s and early 1970s. The texts are illustrated with reproductions from Shore’s earlier series ‘American Surfaces’ and ‘Amarillo: Tall in Texas’.

Publisher's Description

This photographic story is the first subject matter that Hajime would challenge himself to portray. The trigger to his passion dates back to a decade ago, when he was just 21 years old. Sitting in the college library he stumbled upon a book that portrayed the life of an ancient Japanese people living in mountainous ranges, only 30 years ago. The tribe was described as being quite apart from the Japanese society as we know it today. The book left a deep impression that marked him for life... This 56-page memory is richly overflowing with the recollections of Hajime's 5 years spent living, between 2007 and 2011, with that very tribe, the MATAGI.

Publisher's Description

Antoine Agoudjian’s comprehensive tome is dedicated to the Armenian cultural memory and identity; it marks the centenary of the Armenian genocide. Antoine Agoudjian has dedicated his life’s work to the photographic documentation of Armenian peoples, exiled from a nation decimated by genocide and war. Agoudjian’s evocative images explore cultural memory and identity in the face of wholesale extermination and consequent exile; his exhibition in 2011 was the first on this subject to be exhibited in Turkey since the 1915 genocide. His work evolved that same year from black and white to color photography, and his message of tolerance transcends beyond the Armenian community, offering hope in the irrepressible strength of the human spirit. With photographs taken all over the world over the course of nearly thirty years, Agoudjian documents what must not be forgotten in powerfully moving and intimate images.

Picture of Babel: Ordinary Landscapes

Publisher's Description

Hirokawa has been working to express the existence and life of human nature under the relationship with mother earth and the universe. With his critical eyes, he has taken landscapes of the nature; where human destroyed, where nature try to recapture their own land(sometimes it can be a natural calamity), where the earthquake and nuclear technology made, where you see scrap irons lays, etc. Artificial objects can have astonishingly beautiful sight but on the other hand, this describe the negative side of human life. No people inside the images Hirokawa shows… This can be a message to all the people who go to the future.

"Aesthetically speaking, Hirokawa has opted for an extremely stoic approach in this book. Artificial objects placed in natural settings are filled with an indescribable tedium, and their methodical geometry seems puzzlingly uncontrollable. The ambitious dazzle of the modern era, which set out to subjugate nature, has already been rendered inert and now we are confronted with the bleak results."

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.

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 Fluss - River

Publisher's Description

With its scenic beauty and myth-enshrouded past, the Rhine has always been a popular subject in art and literature. One of the longest rivers in Europe, it inspired the masters of medieval panel painting as well as the Romanticists and the representatives of the classic modern era and contemporary art. Between 2012 and 2014, the photographer Michael Lange devoted his attention to the waters of the Upper Rhine. Taken with a large-format camera, his photographs tell of the longing for tranquility and the desire to lose oneself: they present secluded places, areas of water veiled in fog and traversed by mysterious reflections, at dusk. Subtle shading and color gradation give rise to compositions of atmospheric density and intense clarity.

Picture of An Era Without Memories: Chinese Contemporary Photography on Urban Transformation

Publisher's Description

This timely book documents the phenomenon of rapid and transformative urbanization in China through the work of thirty-one of the country’s most talented art photographers. Capturing both the remnants of widespread demolition and constant, massive new development, these insiders have captured the new Chinese reality—an “era without memories”—brought on by the expansive urban transformation.

In four thematic chapters, An Era Without Memories offers a varied and thought-provoking kaleidoscope of imagery depicting every aspect of urban living, from juxtapositions of old and new to still-life pockets of roadside greenery to digital renderings of closely packed high-rises. These include Miao Xiaochun’s photograph of a vast glass building rising ominously from behind a traditional neighborhood; Wang Jinsong’s collages of the Chinese character used to mark condemned buildings; Zhang Peili’s shots of pastiche Western architecture; Xu Zhengqin’s billboards showing dream residential and commercial developments; and Wang Chuan’s poetic images of abandoned, half-finished, modern buildings.

Complete with an introduction by Stephan Feuchtwang, an expert on China and Professor of Anthropology at the London School of Economics, and a personal afterword by author Jiang Jiehong, this remarkable book offers a moving portrait of the dramatically changing Chinese landscape.

Publisher's Description

James Mollison’s photo projects are defined by smart, original concepts applied to serious social and environmental themes. For his latest book, Playground, Mollison photographs children at play in their school playgrounds, inspired by memories of his own childhood and interested in how we all learn to negotiate relationships and our place in the world through play. For each picture, Mollison sets up his camera during school break time, making multiple frames and then composing each final photograph from several scenes, in which he finds revealing “play” narratives. With photographs from rich and poor schools, in countries including Argentina, Bhutan, Bolivia, India, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Nepal, Norway, Sierra Leone, the United Kingdom, and the U.S., Mollison also provides access for readers of all ages to issues of global diversity and inequality.

Picture of  Eve Arnold: Magnum Legacy

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

Publisher's Description

This first volume in a major new series of illustrated biographies of Magnum photographers traces the life and achievements of Eve Arnold, who captured an incredible array of subjects with remarkable clarity and compassion.

Eve Arnold (1912–2012) was born to a poor immigrant family in Philadelphia and became a photographer by chance. In 1950 Arnold was a 38-year-old Long Island housewife when she enrolled in a six-week photography course that led to her groundbreaking photo essay on black fashion models in Harlem. She went on to become the first woman to join Magnum Photos and, eventually, one of the most accomplished photojournalists of her time. Filled with reproductions of Arnold’s acclaimed photographs, shot in both color and black and-white, as well as previously unseen archival images, this biography relates Arnold’s bold images to the fascinating story of their making. Renowned for her intimate portraits of figures such as Marilyn Monroe, Malcolm X, and Queen Elizabeth, Arnold was equally comfortable documenting the lives of the poor and dispossessed. “I don’t see anybody as either ordinary or extraordinary. I see them simply as people in front of my lens.” To her images of migrant workers, disabled veterans, and protesters for civil rights in the US and against apartheid in South Africa, she brought an unflinching eye and a strong sense of social justice. This highly engrossing narrative tells a compelling story of an intrepid artist whose life’s purpose was to report on the lives of others.

Picture of Uncommon Ground: A word-lover's guide to the British landscape

Publisher's Description

'Out ... over the hill and then down the dip and through some lumpy bits.' This was how Dominick Tyler used to describe the places he roamed during his childhood in rural Cornwall. Vague generalities were good enough then, but later he felt a more precise, more detailed language must exist, precisely because he needed it to do what people must have needed it to do for millennia: give directions, tell a story or find a place.

And so he began collecting words for landscape features, words like jackstraw, zawn, clitter and cowbelly, shivver and swag, tolmen and tor. Words that are as varied, rich and poetic as the landscapes they describe. Many of these words for our landscape are falling into obscurity, some endure only by haunting place-names and old maps. Here Dominick Tyler gathers them into an enchanting visual glossary of the British landscape.

On facing pages are photographs and stories touching on geology, literature, topography, folklore and a time when our ancestors read the lines on the land as fluently as text. Taking us from the waterlogged fens to the whitesands of the Western Isles, this full-colour book is a rare delight.

Publisher's Description

Dayanita Singh's Museum of Chance is a book about how life unfolds, and asks to be recorded and edited, along and off the axis of time. The inscrutably woven photographic sequence of Singh’s Go Away Closer has now grown into a labyrinth of connections and correspondences. The thread through this novel-like web of happenings is that elusive entity called Chance. It is Chance that seems to disperse as well as gather fragments or clusters of experience, creating a form of simultaneity that is realized in the idea and matter of the book, with its interlaced or parallel timelines and patterns of recurrence and return. The eighty-eight quadratone images in the book will also appear on the front and back covers in random pairs, transforming each copy of the book into a distinct piece of work by the author.

In this series of stunning photographs, Mikiya Takimoto expresses a fascination with the sea and its movements. Abstract fields of frothing water, glimmering expanses of ripples, and cresting waves like snow-capped mountains are all portrayed in a palette of icy whites and blues. Often it is as if the viewer is peering down at the surface of our planet from high above, able to observe immense, frozen landscapes with their tectonic swirls, upheavals and rifts. Captivating and sublime work from this Japanese master.

Publisher's Description

'The Neighbors', the latest project from photographer Arne Svenson (born 1952), began when he inherited a telephoto bird-watching lens from a friend and began to record the quotidian activities of his neighbours in the glass-walled apartment building across the street from his Manhattan studio. Completely unstaged and taken without his subjects' knowledge, the images capture them, framed by the structure of their own windows, in their unguarded moments. Simultaneously tender and voyeuristic, Svenson's carefully composed photographs have been compared to scenes from Vermeer and Edward Hopper, but the series has also sparked controversy and debate since it was first exhibited in August 2013, at a moment of acute national anxiety over surveillance and privacy.

More than 40 engrossing images make up this series of grainy, black-and-white photographs by Daisuke Yokota, the first to feature his nude photography. Through a visual expression that mixes reality and fiction, an indecipherable tangle of human limbs and torsos is made eerily yet sensually tangible within the close quarters of a nondescript bedroom space. Deep shadows threaten to engulf the writhing, fleshy bodies of what seem to be a man and a woman, even as the suggested intimacy of their interaction is negated by the extreme proximity in which Yokota places the viewer.

Devils Gate, Devils Canyon, Bumpass Hell, Hells Half Acre, Dirty Devil River: photographer Mark Ruwedel visited all of these places and more while creating the series Pictures of Hell. This book is the culmination of the journey he began in 1995, and brings together virtually every image in the artist’s brilliant interpretation of the American West. Ruwedel, 2014 winner of a Guggenheim Fellowship and the prestigious Canadian Scotiabank Award, is inspired by the 19th-century photographers whose photo albums revealed the glories of the West. In Pictures of Hell, he layers history with a contemporary investigation of technology, anthropology and colonization. Ruwedel’s work has been exhibited at TATE Modern, Yale University Art Gallery, SFMoMA, LACMA and other important venues. 132 meticulously reproduced tritone plates are complemented with essays by Simon Baker and Chiara Siravo. With intellect and wit, Ruwedel investigates what the West means today, and how its mythology and culture affect our current sensibilities.
