Picture of STATEMENT by Zhang Kechun

Publisher's Description

"Carrying out this photograph project is because of the inspiration after reading the novel River of the North written by Zhang Chengzhi. Attracted by the powerful words in this novel, I decided to take a walk along the Yellow River to experience and feel the father-like broad and wide brought from this river, so that I could find the root of my soul .while along the way, the river from my mind was inundated by the stream of reality. The river, which once was full of legends, had gone and disappeared. That is kind of my profound pessimism. Nevertheless, as a vast country with a long history, its future is always bright. There is a descent in the matrix; there is her own nutrition to feed her babies; there is the power of creation to cultivate them strongly. The weak moaning finally will be drowned by the shout for joy. From this point of view, it seems, all shall be optimistic."

Picture of Pictures From Home

Publisher's Description

First published in 1992 to wide critical acclaim, Pictures From Home is Larry Sultan’s pendant to his parents. Sultan returned home to Southern California periodically in the 1980s and the decade-long sequence he presents moves between registers, combining contemporary photographs with film stills from home movies, fragments of conversation, Sultan’s own writings and other memorabilia. The result is a narrative collage in which the boundary between the documentary and the staged becomes increasingly porous.

“What drives me to continue this work is difficult to name,” wrote Sultan. “It has more to do with love than with sociology. With being a subject in the drama rather than a witness. And in the odd and jumbled process of working, everything shifts: the boundaries blur, my distance slips, the arrogance and illusion of immunity falters. I wake up in the middle of the night, stunned and anguished. These are my parents. From that simple fact, everything follows.”

This new edition – the first released since 1992 – offers a new edit of Sultan’s work and includes previously unpublished images.

Picture of Shadow And Light

Publisher's Description

Bill Brandt was the preeminent British photographer of the twentieth century and a founding father of photography’s modernist tradition. Published in conjunction with an exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, Bill Brandt: Shadow and Light presents the photographer’s entire oeuvre, with special emphasis on his investigation of English life in the 1930s and his innovative late nudes. It is the first full scale examination of Brandt’s work that attempts to trace a coherent trajectory across the photographer’s multifaceted career.

Rich tritone illustrations highlight the special characteristics of Brandt’s prints, and an essay by Sarah Hermanson Meister, Curator in the Department of Photography at MoMA, sets Brandt’s life and work in the context of twentieth-century photographic history. Lee Ann Daffner, the Museum’s Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Conservator of Photographs, contributes an illustrated glossary of Brandt’s retouching techniques, enhancing the appreciation of his printing processes. The book also includes a generously illustrated appendix of Brandt’s photo-stories published during the Second World War, clarifying the photographer’s career as never before.

Picture of Hurricane Season

Publisher's Description

"In Louisiana, the threat of hurricanes arrives annually, but the storm around the poorest people is felt daily. I think of permanent vigilance, or recovery, and the constant need to start over. Memories that never have the luxury of time to heal. Anger springs from fear, a dam against chaos. In the storm with all the destructive power, the people I met were like pillars in the water, holding up the houses. Hurricane Season, deals with the transient nature of life and how people deal with impermanence – this theme is common to all of my work." - Hannah Modigh

Publisher's Description

This luxurious, silk-bound limited edition presents highlights from Sugimoto’s beloved Theaters series

Published in an edition of 400 signed and numbered copies, Snow White is a unique collector’s edition book containing 75 artworks by Hiroshi Sugimoto (born 1948). All of the photographs in Snow White are from his Theaters series and include many of his well-known photographs of classic movie palaces and drive-ins, along with new photographs of Italian opera houses and abandoned theaters. Sugimoto began the Theaters series four decades ago. To make these images, he opens the shutter inside the dark theater (or in the case of the drive-ins, outside at night) for the duration of the movie. The running movie is the only source of light bringing out the architectural details of these spaces. The Disney movie Snow White was running when Sugimoto photographed “Palace Theater, Gary (2015), one of the abandoned theaters that is reproduced here.

In this book, Sugimoto reveals for the first time the movies that were screened when he took these photographs and the exposure time of each photograph. Each artwork in Snow White is accompanied by the name of the movie, its running time and a short text about each written by Sugimoto. The black-and-white photographs are hand-tipped onto the pages and the book is bound in silk cloth. Each copy contains a numbered colophon signed by Sugimoto.

Picture of A New York 1989 -93

Publisher's Description

French photographer Antoine d’Agata departed his homeland in 1983 to begin a series of travels. He has since gained notoriety with a body of work that deals with addiction, sex, personal obsessions, darkness, prostitution, and other topics widely considered taboo. D’Agata studied photography at the International Center of Photography of New York City in 1990, under the tutelage of Larry Clark and Nan Goldin. This publication offers a personal visual reflection of that time. Designed as a 48-page leporello with an insert containing 20 pages of text, including a letter written in 1991, it includes self-portraits, scratched out journal snippets, and grainy photographs of drug use.

Picture of Belfast Punk. Warzone Centre 1997-2003

Publisher's Description

The Warzone Collective began in 1984 in Belfast, Northern Ireland, when a few local punks decided to consolidate their efforts and find their own venue, practice, and social space. In 1986, the Collective opened Giros, its first premises in Belfast, which contained a vegetarian cafe, practice space, and screen printing facilities. It soon became a focal point for anarchists and punks.

In 1991 the Collective moved Giros to a larger and more ambitious venue, the spot where all of the photographs in this book were taken. Over the years, thousands of people passed through Giros’ doors. A strong D.I.Y. ethic defined the way gigs and events were organized. It didn’t have an alcohol license, and it was an all ages venue. The Warzone Centre, or The Centre as it was called by some, became the countercultural hub for the greater Belfast area and beyond. Bands from all over the world played there, and it was famous for being one of the best in Europe for D.I.Y. punk.

The photographs in this book were taken between 1997 and 2003. Toward the end of 2003, the Centre closed, leaving a huge gap in radical Belfast culture. It reopened in 2011, in a different venue on the opposite side of town and is still going strong today.

Publlisher's Description

"As dusk approaches, roadside vending machines light up in cities and in the outskirts. These scenes of vending machines, ordinarily standing on the roadside, are particular to Japan.

The vending machines downtown or in the wilderness, placed to stand in solitude, are an image of loneliness. They work tirelessly, whether it is day or night. But once their sales drop, they are taken away. If they do not glow and shine, they will stop existing. There might be something human about them."

Publisher's Description

New, two different covers

While it’s been more than twenty years since moving to Tokyo, I’ve never grown tired of how, day by day, the city fluctuates and grows. But on the other hand, it has become hard to see the embodiment of our true humanity - perhaps this loss is a consequence of our unchecked modern urban proliferation.

Years ago, while I was photographing and living among nomads in Tibet I was struck by the way in which those there live and coexist powerfully with the earth. I honed this feeling through making portraits of the people I encountered. Compared with my experiences there I felt that, as photographic subjects, through the convenience of modern life the citizens of Tokyo lacked something that those in Tibet naturally possessed.

But was this really so?

Making an effort to observe Tokyo well, one should be able to discover those living strongly with the same radiance of human nature coexisting within the city. This belief led me to begin a daily attempt to seek out with my camera those who exist and thrive within their natural, yet urban, habitat.

Indeed, ten years have passed and in my eyes the dense sprawl of Tokyo is an ecosystem with magnificent circulation.

Picture of Shout It Loud, Shout It Clear

Publisher's Description

Over the last two years John Comino-James has photographed demonstrations across many parts of the UK – from those associated with the 2015 General Election right through to the 2016 EU Referendum.

In his new book, Shout It Loud, Shout It Clear, he shows the astonishing breadth of causes that are embraced by protestors including climate change, the replacement of Trident, the refugee crisis, the government’s austerity policies, the ongoing detention of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, Israeli policy towards the Palestinian people, the Chinese repressions in Tibet, Saving the Bee, or Fracking. The list seems endless and whether the protest involves small groups of campaigners or marches numbering tens of thousands, the anger and indignation of the protesters brings passion and commitment to the streets of the UK. Yet all too often many of these protests pass unremarked in the mainstream media.

We may pride ourselves that it is the mark of a civilized community that it can accommodate protests and demonstrations, but, as Comino-James suggests, we must never forget that there are societies in which any form of protest carries the certainty of draconian penalties. We must also remember that while the protests on our streets may be permitted – even facilitated – they are also closely monitored by the authorities. There is no room for us to be complacent.

Accompanying the photographs are reflective texts which explore the nature of these protests. Quoting from the banners and placards carried by protesters, Comino-James weaves together a powerful and deeply moving commentary on what is an important, though often overlooked, backdrop to our democracy.

Picture of  Terra Nostra (Signed)

Publisher's Description

In Terra Nostra, Sicilian born photographer Mimi Mollica explores the effects of the Mafia on his homeland. He document the scars inflicted by Cosa nostra on both the physical and social landscape of the island as a result of a system strongly rooted in both fear and corruption.

Mollica began shooting Terra Nostra in 2009. For him the biggest challenge was to convey the legacy that Cosa nostra has imposed both on the Sicilian people and on the land itself, with its coastline blighted by illegal speculative building. Here is a system based on extortion and the corruption of public office, and an unsustainable economy overseen by the capitalist monopoly of the crime families. For Mollica there is an overwhelming sense of claustrophobia, and a lack of freedom that seems to permeate every aspect of Sicilian life.

Terra Nostra is introduced by the respected Sicilian judge, Roberto Scarpinato who, since 1989, has been involved in some of the most important trials against the Mafia. He has been under police protection for over twenty years.

Sean O’Hagan, photography critic at The Guardian and The Observer, also contributes an insightful text which looks at the context of Mollica’s work.

Picture of 2017

Publisher's Description

Since the early 1990s, Wolfgang Tillmans has established himself as one of the most exciting and innovative artists working today. The first photographer to win the Turner Prize (in 2000), his practice is characterized by constant investigation into the boundaries of the photographic medium and a preoccupation with the process of photography itself.

This new publication, accompanying an exhibition at Tate Modern, will examine Tillmans’s evolving practice showcasing his photography but also his video, digital slide projections, publications, and recorded music. Mark Godfrey gives an overarching view of Tillmans’s practice, from the physical materiality of the work, to space and installation, to his use of abstraction. Tom Holert focuses on Tillmans’s relationship with politics and society, with particular emphasis on events of the last 15 years and the way Tillmans uses images and methods of distribution to examine global concerns such as migration and identity politics.

The book is designed by the artist, and has a strong visual identity with a collectible feel. Photography and video stills are beautifully reproduced in full color while, in keeping with the artist’s non-hierarchical approach to media, documentary material will also be highlighted.

Picture of Attraper Au Vol (Catch in the Air)

Skateboarding photography does not, I suspect, feature very high on the list of our customers’ interests but I would strongly encourage you to take a look at the work of Fred Mortagne (aka French Fred). In Attraper au Vol, the skateboarders in these black-and-white images are dwarfed by the streets and buildings they operate around. The result is one of the most compelling and dynamic books of architectural photography I have seen in a long time. 

Publisher's Description

Attraper Au Vol (Catch in the Air) is the photographic life’s work of one of the most respected skate film makers and photographers in the world, French artist Fred Mortagne, or better known as French Fred. This photographic essay culminates years of Fred’s work (2000-2015), offering a sublime lens on life. A feast of lines and angles, his deliberate compositions blend skaters into their environment; offering an abstract perspective on architecture and geometry. His work intrigues both skaters and non-skaters alike, slowing the blur of modern life just enough to expose what is below the surface. Fred's fluid style evokes the esthetic beauty of skate and the muse of urban culture rather than pure performance, although the raw talent of his subjects is readily apparent. Across settings, subjects and locales, Attraper Au Vol exposes Fred’s signature style in one beautiful hard cover book. Shot both on film and digital 35mm format, this collection of images is a canon for the world of skate, and a body of art all its own. Fred's photographs are framed by a foreword from world renowned photographer Anton Corbijn and an essay by Geoff Rowley, one of the greatest skateboarders of all-time whom Fred works with extensively.

Publisher's Description

Emily Dickinson wrote that all it takes to make a prairie is “one clover, and a bee. / And revery.” It turns out that to know a prairie (or meadow) is a bit more complicated, as photographer Barbara Bosworth and writer Margot Anne Kelley have discovered. For more than a decade, Bosworth and Kelley have meandered in, studied and photographed a single meadow in Carlisle, Massachusetts. In addition to their own investigations, they have invited botanists, entomologists, naturalists and historians to consider the meadow with them. Also included are historic maps of the property dating to the 1800s, and a transcription of notes from a former owner whose family has continuously documented plant and bird life in the meadow from 1931 until the 1960s.

Part photo-essay, part journal and part scientific study, this book is a meditation on the shifting perspective that occurs when one repeatedly sees the same place through new eyes.

Signed copies of a limited edition from Libraryman of a new book by the great Swedish photographer Gunnar Smoliansky. A large-format publication with twenty-five beautiful reproductions of Smoliansky’s duotone photographs of trees. This is an edition of only 500 numbered copies.

Publisher's Description

“Gunnar Smoliansky’s (b. 1933, Swedish) studies of trees are social journalism in photographic form, although not from the human world in spite of their occasional traces of humanity. No, people appear to have left the scene. Smoliansky’s depictions of trees are a forestry ranger’s nightmare and at the same time far too vulnerable to please the zealous conservationist. These photographs are about a type of vegetation that may once have been both magnificent and dignified – what remains of growth is both frustrated and defiant. They are not romantic pictures of virgin woods. No, instead they are places that have been consigned to oblivion, pre- or post-profitability. Impediments. Languishing land. Windfallen tree trunks or soon to be windfallen trunks that are nothing but upright poles, trunks that have grown into each other. In these photos we are far from observing from perfect specimens, textbooks and the pleasure of inventing Latin names in the Linnaean spirit. They are mainly trees that remain standing by sheer dint of willpower, knots and twists. Like a neglected case of rheumatism. And yet: in the midst of this solitude, in the midst of this struggle, so difficult to grasp, there is a sense of community among the susceptible.”

 Excerpt from the preface written by writer and poet Gunnar D. Hansson (b. 1945, Swedish)

Publisher's Description

Scarlett Hooft Graafland (1973) creates magical photographic images of high-altitude salt flats in Bolivia, remote farming sheds in Iceland, the beaches of Dubai, Madagascar, the polar region and the village of Gorinchem, The Netherlands. Her work touches upon major themes such as the disappearance of traditional cultures and the fragility of nature, yet the tone is always light, colourful and surreal. Initially, Scarlett mainly took pictures to document her sculptures and performances, but her photographs gradually became works of art themselves. Travelling to remote places and cultures, she explores the relationship between people, traditions and nature. In this new monography, beautifully designed by Irma Boom traveling and discovering become important themes themselves.

Graafland’s work is included in several international museum collections and has been exhibited in venues including Huis Marseille in Amsterdam and the Museum of Photography in Seoul. This book provides an overview of her oeuvre.

Picture of Dzhangal

Publisher's Description

'Dzhangal' a new book by photographer Gideon Mendel provides an alternative portrait of residents of the Jungle refugee camp in Calais, France, by presenting a series of photographs of discarded items such as toothbrushes, playing cards, worn-out trainers, teargas canisters and children’s dolls. The book coincides with an exhibition of large-scale photographs from the series together with an installation of the found objects, on display at Autograph ABP, London, from 6 January – 11 February 2017.

Between May and October 2016 Mendel traveled to Calais several times, tasked to teach photography to refugees as part of a collaborative documentary project. He discovered, however, that many of the camp’s residents were hostile towards the camera; fearing identification could undermine their asylum claims and lead to deportation. They were skeptical that photography would help their situation and Mendel came to share their reservations, feeling that excessive photographic coverage was potentially more exploitative than helpful. Despite being a photographer over 30 years, he began to question whether photography was failing in the face of the enormity of the refugee crisis, reinforcing stereotypes about refugees and further stigmatising them. 

His response was to turn his attention to lost objects on the ground to evoke the residents’ humanity through what was discarded. From the social disorder he derived structure by performing a type of contemporary ethno-archaeology. Some objects evidenced the daily violence many experienced; others reflected the banality and domesticity of life at the camp, including the plight of women and children. Visible ingrained dirt and ashes allow the viewer to sense the refugees’ struggle to live ordinary lives under the most extraordinary circumstances.

Mendel’s alternative portraits of the Jungle residents are representative of the plight of displaced people across the globe. He has titled the project ‘Dzhangal’, a Pashto word meaning ‘This is the forest’, the origin of the contentious term the ‘Jungle’.

The book will include over 40 photographs with writing by residents of the Jungle camp – community organiser 'Africa', student and writer Babak Inaloo, artist 'Mani', and teacher Shaheen Ahmed Wali – as well as texts by author and broadcaster Paul Mason and art historian Dominique Malaquais.

Picture of London Ends (Signed)

Philipp Ebeling takes us on a fascinating trek through the hinterland of London, the result as he describes of a doughnut-shaped 250km walk through the undervalued areas between the city centre and the leafy suburbs. Though the scenes are more intimate, it is perhaps close in spirit to Simon Roberts’ We English. Signed copies.

Publisher's Descriptio

London’s ends aren’t on the edge, where the map shows the city ends or where the M25 ring road runs. London’s ends lie like a doughnut around the city centre. Too far from the inner city to feature in the story of London, not far enough out to be leafy suburb and commuter land. Via an epic 250 kilometer walk, the book explores a swathe of largely overlooked in-between land, ever present as soon as you travel out from the centre.

‘Coming to London from a small village in Germany, I was both overwhelmed and bewitched.’ he writes ‘I felt compelled to know every last corner of the place, to understand it as fully as I could. For years I crisscrossed the city on my bike, finding new routes to places, exploring new neighbourhoods, getting lost and soaking up every detail. One afternoon I returned to my home in Whitechapel during a freak snowstorm. I rushed into the house to get my camera and started to photograph the local market on my doorstep. These pictures of Whitechapel in the snow started a process of documenting the city.’

Eventually the places he had visited and photographed began to look on the map like a doughnut and Ebeling set out to join the dots with one long walk around the city, avoiding the centre. Leaving his home in Hackney and heading east, he circled London, arriving back ten days and 250km later.

Taking in the Chiselhurst Caves, plane-spotters at Heathrow Airport, Brimsdown and Tottenham, Ebeling photographed places that are normally overlooked in the story of the capital. Shifting from the industrial to the idyllic, day to night, from crowds to solitude, intimate interior to boundless landscape, these photographs depict both the rhythm and contrasts of life on the peripheries of the city. Linking them together, Ebeling presents the vast and varied expanses of the landscape of Outer London.

The photographs in this book were made both on the walk and on other explorations in the city.

They are accompanied by a diary of observations made on the walk itself.
