Picture of Revoir

In 2004, I made the book Trying to Dance, designed by Patric Leo and published by Journal. Since then, it has lived a life of its own, just as books should do.

For me, Trying to Dance is more than a book – the photographs on which it was based constitute an image universe of its own. Photography then had a liberating effect on me as a visual artist. I lived mostly in New York, but also in Värmland, and travelled a lot in the United States and Europe. Mentally, I was in between worlds, between realities, between the urban and the rural. This was also a period when I questioned and doubted the importance and relevance of photography for me – actually. The freedom I so strongly experienced in the process of making Trying to Dance, largely answered my doubts and became a compass for my continued creativity.

To start with, I was not at all certain when Gösta Flemming at Journal, Patric Leo and Christian Caujolle, suggested going back to the Trying to Dance negatives. But when I started looking through the files – so many images, so many that were not used in Trying to Dance, and so many new combinations that hit me; it was then that I decided that we should publish Revoir.

Revoir is a completely new book, a revision, a revisit to that period between the mid-90s and the early 2000s. The book has been made in close and enjoyable collaboration with all the people that I worked with on Trying to Dance. Around two thirds of the photographs have not been published before. For the first time I have scanned the negatives, together with Ewa-Teréz Gölin, and allowed the present to guide me in the printing for Revoir. JH Engström

Picture of The Noise of Ice: Antarctica

Publihser's Description

When the Italian photographer Enzo Barracco decided to stage a photographic expedition to Antarctica, inspired by the example of Sir Ernest Shackleton, he had much more to contend with than extreme cold. With their merciless winds, treacherous seas and vast sheets of ice, the snowy lands at the South Pole are a challenge for the most seasoned explorer. In order to reach the continent, Barracco had to endure a perilous sea crossing from southern Argentina through the notoriously rough Drake Passage. The Noise of Ice: Antarctica explores what drove him to embark on his journey, and tells the story of the expedition in astonishing photographs, many taken in hazardous conditions. In his gripping text, Barracco details how even his journey to Antarctica required the help of an experienced ice pilot, to spot and avoid icebergs that a ship’s radar may miss. He describes how the waves on that first voyage threw him to the deck and impressed on him the hostility of such an environment. He also recounts his constant battle to protect his photographic equipment and all-important memory cards from the excessive cold. Most importantly, Barracco explains that, in capturing these beautiful landscapes, his intention was to remind us of the environmental threats to this part of the world, the last empty continent. As Sir Ranulph Fiennes asserts in his foreword to the book, ‘witnessed by only a few, Antarctica should be enjoyed by many and protected by all’.

A compelling photographic account of a journey to the end of the world.

Fully illustrated with powerful images by Enzo Barracco, and with a foreword by the celebrated explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes.

Publisher's Description

On the fortieth anniversary of Pierre Commoy and Gilles Blanchard’s romantic union, this volume traces four decades of artistic collaboration between the photographer and painter known as Pierre et Gilles. This year-by-year retrospective of their vast oeuvre, accompanied by an incisive essay by art critic Éric Troncy, showcases the genesis and development of their sublime, audacious, and explicitly confected fusion of photography and painting.

Highly sophisticated and shamelessly sexy, their art—stylized, idealized painted photographs—synthesizes tropes drawn from celebrity and mainstream gay culture with timeless themes of religion, mythology, and beauty, and many works feature international stars including Madonna, Naomi Campbell, Dita Von Teese, Kylie Minogue, Karl Lagerfeld, Mick Jagger, and Iggy Pop.

Picture of Highway Kind

Publisher's Description

Justine Kurland, known for her utopian photographs of American landscapes and their fringe communities, has spent the better part of the last twelve years on the road. Following in the photographic lineage of Robert Frank, Stephen Shore, and Joel Sternfeld, Kurland's work examines the story of America—and the idea of the American dream juxtaposed against the reality. Her deep interest in the road, the western frontier, escape, and ways of living outside mainstream values pervade this stunning and important body of work. Since 2004, Kurland and her young son, Casper, have traveled in their customized van, going south in the winter and north in the summer, her life as an artist and mother finely balanced between the need for routine and the desire for freedom and surprise. Casper's interests-particularly in trains, and later in cars—and those he befriends along the way often determine Kurland's subject matter. He appears at different ages in the work, against open vistas and among the subcultures of train-hoppers and drifters around them. Kurland's vision is in equal parts raw and romantic, idyllic and dystopian. From highly symbolic pictures of trains moving across epic landscapes to allegorical depictions of mechanics and muscle cars, this book features the full scope of her road work-from her series This Train is Bound for Glory, to her most recent, Sincere Auto Care.

Picture of Novokuznetsk

Publisher's Description

During the 1980s Siberian artist Nikolay Bakharev worked as a mechanic and communal services factory photographer in the USSR. To supplement his income he would solicit work as a black market portrait photographer on the public beaches of Eastern Russia. If the shoot went well, he would invite his subjects to make further images in a more intimate setting, compelling his subjects over several hours into contorted, erotically charged poses, which at the time was highly illegal.

After the the fall of the Iron Curtain, Bakharev began to work more openly as an artist, although often being admonished as a pornographer. His photographs from this time reveal more than just the bodies of his subjects, but the longing and dampened dreams of the inhabitants of an industrial town and the desires of an unrelenting artist.

"It would be easy to misinterpret these images as simply the pornographic imaginings of a manipulative and dirty old man, yet there is something else within them – in the subjects’ eyes, in their frankness, in their curiosity and collusion, as well as in their surroundings – that suggests that much more is going on here, and that what is both at stake and in evidence stretches far beyond the realms of explicit sexuality, voyeurism and mere titillation." - Aaron Schuman

Picture of New York in the 1970s

Publisher's Description

The luminous and compelling photographs in New York in the 1970s capture the essence of a city in a way best described as “place portraiture.” Trager’s images present the architecture of Manhattan with time-defiant clarity and beauty. Although Trager selected his subjects for aesthetic and visual reasons—rather than from an historical or documentary point of view—with the passage of time his distinctly imaginative photographs have also acquired value as historical documents. The negatives for the images in this book, only recently rediscovered, had originally been archived for printing but Trager began other projects before any prints were made.

The photographs in New York in the 1970s were taken at the same time as Trager’s timeless Philip Trager: New York, published by Wesleyan University Press in 1980, in which the photographer depicts the city “as a solitary figure, always aware of the ‘enveloping sky’.” New York in the 1970s reveals Trager’s more concentrated attention to the interaction between the city’s architecture and the dynamics of the street.

Picture of Hell On Wheels

Publisher's Description

“Hell On Wheels” – Photographs from the New York Underground 1977 – 1984 – is a joyous and soulful trip in the bygone era of the New York subway system. Swiss photographer Willy Spiller, living in New York at the time, documented his underground travels with the curiosity of a foreigner, fascinated by the rush and the madness of its time. It’s the period of the first rap music, graffiti, The Warriors in the cinema, Guardian Angels on the trains and Ed Koch in charge of a broke and crime-riddled city. Willy Spiller’s images are as much a visual document of this incomparable realm as they are a syncopated, colorful poem to the city of New York and its people.

Publisher's Description

Everybody carries some psychological pain in their mind or heart, some more of it, some less. There are many who cannot escape from it.
For me, there is nothing I can do but take their photos. I cannot save them, and I cannot be saved. This is a story about the pain of my mother, my sister, my girlfriend, of my pain and that of the women I have encountered. — Takamoto Yamauchi

Using two types of black ink, the photos that make up this work as well as the cover surrounding it have been printed on Japan’s finest ultra high-gloss paper. The end paper has been printed in three colors (two types of black ink, one silver), on jet-black paper even darker than the ink, giving the impression of a tonally inversed print. The book was bound traditionally, using EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate). As a result, the pages can never quite be fully opened, with opposite pages reflecting the content of each other, hopefully pulling their reader even deeper into Takamoto’s work.

Picture of Washington Square

Publisher's Description

In the late 50’s, New York’s Washington Square was a place of rebellion, nicknamed junkie row and described by Simone de Beauvoir as "A cosmopolitan chorus of tourists, ‘intellectuals’, students and a dubious collection of beatniks, hippies and bohemians who gather while in the dimly lit night clubs and coffee houses, blues and folk singers perform.”

As a young man, the American photographer Dave Heath, created deeply expressive, candid portraits of the young people who populated the square, as well as venturing into the 7 Arts Coffee Gallery, where the infamous Beat poets: Allen Ginsberg, Gregory Corso and Jack Kerouac (who appear in the book), spent their nights giving readings of their latest works such as Ginsberg's influential poem Howl, which is included as an introduction to the book.

This special book began it's journey shortly before Heath sadly passed away in 2016 on his 85th birthday.

Picture of Ren Hang

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

Publisher's Description

Ren Hang is an unlikely rebel. Slight of build, shy by nature, prone to fits of depression, the 28-year-old Beijing photographer is nonetheless at the forefront of Chinese artists’ battle for creative freedom. Like his champion Ai Weiwei, Ren is controversial in his homeland and wildly popular in the rest of the world. He says, "I don't really view my work as taboo, because I don't think so much in cultural context, or political context. I don't intentionally push boundaries, I just do what I do."

Why? Because his models, friends, and increasingly, fans, are naked, often outdoors, high in the trees or on the terrifyingly vertiginous rooftops of Beijing, stacked like building blocks, heads wrapped in octopi, body cavities sprouting phone cords and flowers, whatever enters his mind at the moment. He denies his intentions are sexual, and there is a clean detachment about even his most extreme images: the urine, the insertions, the many, many erections. In a 2013 interview VICE magazine asked, “there are a lot of dicks … do you just like dicks?” Ren responded, “It’s not just dicks I’m interested in, I like to portray every organ in a fresh, vivid and emotional way.” True though that may be, the penises Ren photographs are not just fresh and vivid, but unusually large, making one wonder just where he meets his friends.

In the same piece, Hang also stated, “Gender isn’t important when I’m taking pictures, it only matters to me when I’m having sex,” putting him at the forefront of gender inclusiveness. Young fans eagerly follow his website, Facebook, Instagram, and Flickr accounts. His photographs, all produced on film, have been the subject of over 20 solo and 70 group shows in his brief five-year career, in cities as disparate as Tokyo, Athens, Paris, New York, Copenhagen, Frankfurt, Vienna, and yes, even Beijing. He has self-published eight monographs, in tiny print runs, that now sell for up to $ 600. TASCHEN’s Ren Hang will be his first international collection, covering his entire career, with well loved favorites and many never-before-seen photos of men, women, Beijing, and those many, many erections.

Picture of Echo

Publisher's Description

In the early 1990s various trips took Jungjin Lee into the endless expanse of America, where she captured archaic, primal images of deserts, rocks, undergrowth, and cactuses. Drawing on her South Korean heritage, the artist developed a highly unique pictorial language in series such as Ocean, On Road, Pagodas, Things, and Wind, in which her fundamental interest in nature and culture is expressed in a space of poetic resonance. In her work, Jungjin Lee taps her profound understanding for materiality, texture, and craftsmanship. Working with Liquid Light, she applies photosensitive emulsion onto rice paper with a coarse brush. The publication presents eleven groups of works, commentated and contextualized in essays by Lena Fritsch, Hester Keijser, and Liz Wells–providing, for the very first time, an overview of an oeuvre spanning two decades. Jungjin Lee: Echo is published on the occasion the exhibition at Fotomuseum Winterthur, September 17, 2016 till January 29, 2017.

Picture of Live in the house and it will not fall down

Publisher's Description

Live in the house and it will not fall down is a gallery of fragments, a collection of memories, the story of one and more people, of a house, of a city. Compiled by Italian artists and recipients of the first Lewis Baltz Research Fund, Alessandro Laita and Chiaralice Rizzi, the book was built from an archive of images collected over four decades by the late Venetian artist Bruno Rizzi, who died in 2004. Spending long days in the artist’s Venice studio, Laita and Rizzi intervened in the delicate geology that underlies such piles of papers, postcards and photographs sedimented over the years. Set free from their previous binds and rebound in a new order, the images serve as traces of the artist's life in sync with the gentle currents of the floating city.

Picture of Ancient Trees: Portraits of Time

Publisher's Description

Moon’s exquisite photographs radiate awe. -- Booklist, Starred Review

A project with weight and lasting beauty...Ancient Trees provides the kind of thorough and thoughtful portrait that each of these majestic long-lived survivors deserves. -- Christian Science Monitor

In our age of mass species extinctions, we never know from where, if anywhere, consolation may come. Try looking at Beth Moon's new book, "Ancient Trees: Portraits of Time." -- San Francisco Chronicle

Holiday Gift Guide Selection -- San Francisco Chronicle

Beth Moon’s fourteen-year quest to photograph ancient trees has taken her across the United States, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Africa. Some of her subjects grow in isolation, on remote mountainsides, private estates, or nature preserves; others maintain a proud, though often precarious, existence in the midst of civilization. All, however, share a mysterious beauty perfected by age and the power to connect us to a sense of time and nature much greater than ourselves. It is this beauty, and this power, that Moon captures in her remarkable photographs.

This handsome volume presents sixty of Moon’s finest tree portraits as full-page duotone plates. The pictured trees include the tangled, hollow-trunked yews—some more than a thousand years old—that grow in Englishchurchyards; the baobabs of Madagascar, called “upside-down trees” because of the curious disproportion of their giant trunks and modest branches; and the fantastical dragon’s-blood trees, red-sapped and umbrella-shaped, that growonly on the island of Socotra, off the Horn of Africa.

Moon’s narrative captions describe the natural and cultural history of each individual tree, while Todd Forrest, vice president for horticulture and living collections at the New York Botanical Garden, provides a concise introduction to the biology and preservation of ancient trees. An essay by the critic Steven Brown defines Moon’s unique place in a tradition of tree photography extending from William Henry Fox Talbot to Sally Mann, and explores the challenges and potential of the tree as a subject for art

Publisher's Description

With The Family of Dog, Michael Ruetz has implemented a unique photographic series in the last fifty years which at the same time presents a subtle and enlightening depiction of people and their social behaviour. Dogs, after all, are what we want to see in them and what we make of them. In the rarest case, a dog is simply an animal. Michael Ruetz photographed dogs on the street, at homes, on the beach or in front of the TV, which usually makes them fall asleep. He depicts them alone, with cats and cows and again and again as man’s companion. Ruetz avoids any mise-en-scène and imposing himself on the animals. Occasional provocative payoffs result from patient observation. As man in his daily routine, dogs slide into odd situations all the time. In this sincere and nevertheless ironic book, Michael Ruetz shows the various forms of canine existence, a comédie canine, in life as in death.

Picture of Political Theatre

Publisher's Description

Over the past two years Mark Peterson has photographed American presidential candidates as they lead rallies, meet with voters and plead for votes. He started shortly before the government shutdown in 2013 at a Tea Party rally at the US Capitol, when politicians were railing against President Obama and the Affordable Care Act—a show to get a sound bite into the next news cycle.

Since then Peterson has followed the political spin as it approaches the November 2016 election. Donald Trump’s entrance into the race—taking control of TV talking heads and making the media his press agent—is true political theatre. In a similar gesture, Bernie Sanders raised an arm in a power salute to waiting photographers after giving a speech in New Hampshire.

Peterson pulls back the curtain on such performances to show these politicians as they really are. Although they are in plain sight, they hide behind words and carefully arranged imagery to project their vision of America. Peterson cuts through such staging and reveals the cold, naked ambition for power.

Publisher's Description

Introduction by Mary Ellen Mark. Text by Ragnar Axelsson.

Raised on an isolated farm in southern Iceland, Ragnar Axelsson (born 1958) became captivated early on by the brutal beauty of the North Atlantic and the delicate interactions between its inhabitants and their environment. Born of that fascination, Faces of the North, first published in a small print run in 2004, established Axelsson as one of the leading documentary photographers of our time. It contained about 100 lushly austere, powerful images of Greenland, Iceland and the Faroe Islands, taken over two decades. Long out of print, Faces of the North is now republished in a special anniversary edition that echoes the format of Axelsson's latest publications, Last Days of the Arctic and Behind the Mountains. Containing the original selection of photographs documenting the vanishing lifestyles of the North Atlantic, the new edition also includes previously unpublished photos, Axelsson's personal accounts of the journeys which led to the images' creation and the artist's sketches of the photographs, drawn nightly as he traveled through the Arctic. In the 2004 edition of Faces of the North, Axelsson collected the images of farmers, hunters and fishermen in the Arctic and the Atlantic that he became best known for; in the 2014 edition, his oeuvre comes full circle, as he looks back upon the foundation of his photographic passion and career.

Picture of The Democratic Forest: Selected Works

Publisher's Description

Over the course of nearly six decades, William Eggleston—often referred to as the “father of color photography”—has established a singular pictorial style that deftly combines vernacular subject matter with an innate and sophisticated understanding of color, form, and composition. “I am at war with the obvious,” Eggleston has said. His photographs transform the ordinary into distinctive, poetic images that eschew fixed meaning.

Featuring selections from the ten-volume The Democratic Forest (Steidl, 2015), this new book highlights 68 exceptional images from Eggleston’s epic project. His photography is “democratic” in its resistance to hierarchy where, as noted by the artist, “no particular subject is more or less important than another.” Featuring original scholarship by renowned art historian Alexander Nemerov, The Democratic Forest. Selected Works provides historical context for a monumental body of work, while offering newcomers a foothold in Eggleston’s photographic practice.

"Eggleston’s … hard architecture of splendid colors, flattened and floating in the sky, vividly shows—and appreciates—the American hubris of eternal disposability. He notes how the tastes of the moment (the golden arches, the shimmering soda bottles, the red Pegasus) cast themselves in immortal terms." Alexander Nemerov
