Picture of Early Works SIGNED

Publisher's Description

An eccentric scrapbook documenting Ivars Gravlejs schooldays in Latvia during the 1990s. Aged 11, Gravlejs acquired a camera, soon deployed in unrestrained rebellion against authority – the small state of the school. Gravlejs writes, “I often felt nauseous before going to school because of the humiliation that I faced from my teachers. The only way to survive school was to do something creative - to take pictures and make movies.”

Early Works satirises of the rules and aesthetic principles of the adult world. Eight sections trace the various phases of Gravlejs's encyclopaedic curiosity, including ‘Conceptual’, ‘Pop art’ and 'Actions', parroting the tropes of contemporary art, in emanations of the readymade (a pop art stockpile of soda cans), fake historical reconstructions (toy soldiers in battle) and surreal compositions (the erotic union of eggs and a sausage). In all the images, Gravlejs uses the gesture of art as an instrument of anarchy, lampooning his classmates and teachers in fiendish montages, winning small victories in the domain of the image. Pandemonium reins, as the young Gravlejs shapeshifts across the pages, here pretending to be 'dead drunk', sprawled out like an inebriated adult, and there caught in a mock act of terrorism, shifting railroad tracks in theatrical dark glasses.

Authoring captions that offer unsparingly honest vignettes to account for each image, Gravlejs's tone is one of utter self-mockery; and yet we are never quite sure of Gravlejs own proximity to the prodigy of Early Works – as a younger self he teases, spoofs, and employs to bite back at society, but also a protagonist assembled from a world of appropriation, manipulation and intervention.

Ivars Gravlejs (b. 1979) is a Latvian photographer who lives and works in Prague. He studied photography at the Academy of Performing Arts (FAMU) in Prague (2000–07). He currently teaches photography in Latvia and the Czech Republic.

Publisher's Desription

In 1980, the American photographer Larry Fink received a grant from the Seattle Museum of Art, or as he tells the story, ‘My star was starting to rise. I was called’ and so, already a logger of sorts himself, Fink made a natural transition into photographing the rugged breed of men who selectively pillaged the deep, virgin forest of the Olympic Peninsula, in western Washington.

Fink was assigned to ‘a gypo logger’ Davey McCardle, who would prove a significant character in the story of making ‘Opening the Sky’. Fink recalls,’ Back up the mountain with a flash in hand and a bag of forty pounds, a Mamiya C330 and a Leica M2 as my cameras, I was living a tentative life, jumping over logs rolling at me and sidestepping crevices and snakes, at the same time photographing the logging.’

‘Think of the sound from the back of a long tunnel. A whooooosh and slow silent rumble, then the gnawing ra-ta- tat-ta of the saw. Its whine, searing as is lacerates three hundred and fifty years of slow time growth with quick time destruction or production. Finally a great aching arch, a crack, a whir, and a long dark roar. Gravity takes its toll, hallow of time, silence then. A silence without time. The massive tree settled in a bed of mosses, ripped and startled into submission. Looking through a camera is not looking at danger in the same way as straight on.’

The resulting images, published in a beautiful limited edition hard back cloth covered book, are majestic, poetic and fearless — Fink at his finest.

Picture of Lost Rivers

Publisher's Description

Lost Rivers is an exploration of Taipei, Taichung and Tainan's forgotten rivers, streams and waterways. Once dominant forces in carving out their surroundings, these rivers have now become neglected backwaters in the race to urbanise. Neglected, decrepit, the city is built over them and around them. Through them we see how the race to urbanise can affect our world.

Publisher's Description

Eamonn Doyle’s second photo-book, ‘ON, follows last year’s ‘i’, a collection of street portraits from Dublin city centre. In ‘ON’, black and white figures stalk across Dublin streetscapes, by turns lost, menacing, wary, browbeaten or entranced – but always at odds in some way with their environment. 

As in ‘i’, the photographs were mostly taken on Dublin’s Parnell Street and O’Connell Street. But here the historic role of those two streets as zones of resistance, protest and insurrection is far more present. The very title of the book itself evokes a resistance – that doggedly existential kind identified by Samuel Beckett’s narrator in ‘The Unnameable’: ‘You must go on, I can’t go on, I’ll go on.’ 

The figures are dynamic – muscles taut, heads in mid-turn, bodies in motion. Some flee the photographic gaze itself. Others stare challengingly down the barrel of the lens. Most appear caught up in projects so intensely private that they have an air of total inaccessibility. Rarely does the photographic act intrude so little on the lives of its subjects. Paradoxically, the energy is sought at precisely those moments when the unruly subjects look most likely to tear the images asunder.

The central drama of the book could thus be said to be its subjects’ struggle with representation – not necessarily against it, but writhing, wriggling, jockeying with it. The resulting images invariably draw attention to the photographic act. One never forgets that these images have been selected, framed, constructed. One is never tempted to identify the image with the subject of the image or to respond ‘I know exactly how that person feels.’ The interiority of the subjects is preserved; their dignity remains intact. 

‘ON’ opens out to history more directly than its predecessor. Whereas ‘I’ was preoccupied with figures consumed by introspection, the dramas in ‘ON’ are far more environmental. Dublin’s hermetic seal has cracked open and the rest of the world has somehow spilled in. These subjects are photographed mostly from the front and from a lower angle. It’s a presentation that opens out their world, contextualising them by placing them against an architectural backdrop. Where the mysterious, often faceless figures of ‘i’ were often flattened against their worlds, the subjects of ‘ON’ stand out and strike out against their environments, often looming against skies in a way that speaks of possibility, even as they nurse wounds or eye each other suspiciously.

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.

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.

A special edition, featuring a signed original photograph presented with a copy of the book in a custom clamshell box, is also available.

Swope's photographs have the soft look of richly worked, large-scale graphite drawings. In addition to her chosen printing technique, it is achieved through lengthy exposures that blur contours, enhance atmospherics and blend the motions of waves and birds into gentle near-abstractions. One result is to recast familiar sights, recorded in millions of snapshots of tourist scenery, into something alien and almost extraterrestrial. Rocky outcroppings rising above foggy gray swirls of luminosity might be on some far-off mountaintop or even on a Hollywood backlot. They're like mysterious landscapes glimpsed on another planet. That they're actually close to home makes the visual estrangement salutary. Swope's camera can only show the world's surface; however lovely the outward appearance might be, the complex but largely hidden dynamic of a habitat is what matters. Her photographs deftly evoke the presence of more than the eye can see.

Picture of Proverbs

Publisher's Description

Gregori Maiofis’s work has been influenced by multinational and multicultural concerns as well as his own genetic history. He comes from a family of artists and architects, and he grew up in St. Petersburg, a sophisticated city that is considered the capital of classical museum style. After a brief stint in Los Angeles, during which time he learned new art forms and honed his English language skills, Maiofis returned to his native St. Petersburg, because, as he states, “I can do things here artistically that I couldn’t do anywhere else.”

Proverbs is an ongoing series of photographs in which the artist focuses on universal truths. Using trained circus animals in many of his images – from a gargantuan brown bear to monkeys, dogs, lions and most recently, elephants – in settings absent of artifacts or other cultural information, Maiofis offers visually poignant, strike to the heart-of-the-matter images. (His latest work, Closed Mouth Catches No Flies, was an image that Maiofis had visualized very early on, but it wasn’t until years later that he finally met a lion tamer who, as part of his performance, actually puts his head in the mouth of a lion.)

Maiofis’ work has has been the subject of solo exhibitions across Russia, Europe, and the United States. His work is included in the permanent collections in many museums, including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the Moscow Museum of Modern Art, the Novy Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia and the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, California.

Picture of Other Americas

Publisher's Description

Other Americas, originally published in France in 1986 and designed by Lélia Wanick Salgado, is Sebastião Salgado’s first book. Upon publication it became an award winning photobook classic, establishing Salgado’s reputation as the visionary reportage photographer of his generation. With forty-nine black-and-white photographs taken between 1977 and 1984, Salgado’s distilled survey of a continent includes images from Brazil, Ecuador, Bolivia, Peru, Guatemala, and Mexico. The images range in subject, capturing spiritual and religious practices, changing rural landscapes, and intimate domestic life. Each photograph shares a sense of sincere connection-connection between the subject and the photographer, between a population and their homeland, and between Salgado and the audience he seeks to engage. In his text, Alan Riding writes, “Salgado has sought out a lost corner of the Americas and he has made it a prism through which the entire continent can be viewed. A philosophy of life is caught in a look; an entire way of life is frozen in a moment . . .”

Publisher's description

Primordial Landscapes: Iceland Revealed elegantly explores the diverse and raw beauty of Iceland’s extraordinary landscapes through striking images by photographer and naturalist Feodor Pitcairn and the inspired words of geophysicist, author, and poet Ari Trausti Guðmundsson. This collection illuminates topographical phenomenon shaped and crafted by the most powerful natural forces on earth: rain and glacier melt form thunderous waterfalls and rivers that carve at the earth’s surface; arctic snow and ice peppering the land and sea with striking shapes and patterns, feeding the climate and water cycles; lava flows from active volcanoes that build vast, textured landforms where life can begin and take hold. These are the beautiful and extraordinary results of our planet’s most fundamental geological processes.

Pitcairn’s passion for photography lies in his desire to convey the truest account possible of the natural environments he explores and strives to protect. Each Primordial Landscapes image was made with a digital Hasselblad camera, delivering superior color, detail, and clarity. A map and index provide intriguing geological and cultural information about the content of the photographs.

Published in a newspaper format and narrated by “the people,” El-Tantawy’s second publication aims to preserve and celebrate the vanishing memory of one of the most historically relevant chapters in modern-day Egypt’s story.

With its text in Arabic the books is meant to have the feel of an Arabic newspaper.

Picture of Everybody Needs Good Neighbours

Publisher's description

Everybody Needs Good Neighbours, by Arnau Blanch, edited by RM + La Caixa, was recognized with the award for best photography book of the year in the national category in PHotoespaña 2015. 

Everybody Needs Good Neighbours is a photographic project that starts from a very specific territory, the photographer’s hometown, the village of Vilobí d’Onyar. This municipality of some 3,000 inhabitants is characterized by its location at the confluence of transport infrastructures. Although Vilobí d’Onyar might seem a typical village within the geography of Catalonia, its quality as a “no-man’s-land” surrounded by infrastructure has turned it into a dismembered territory. Tunnels, bridges, fences, and retaining walls make up a landscape to which the residents of the zone have had to adapt. The photographer approaches this territory in a unique way, seeking out novelty and surprise in what is familiar to him, exploring both the transit space and the people who inhabit it. Arnau Blanch’s work has been selected for the 19th FotoPres “la Caixa” competition, which has come to constitute an international touchstone in the field of documentary photography.

Pretty as a picture: early color photography from Dutch plant catalogues of the twenties

Leendert Blok (1895–1986) experimented with color photography and the use of the panoramic format. In the twenties, the Dutch photographer worked in close collaboration with flower producers, providing color prints and autochromes for the display catalogues of the various species they cultivated. Blok captured flowers like objects of desire, using the Autochrome Lumière technique.

For Blok, photography relates above all to the gaze. Muted tones and soft bronze hues reveal a timeless world of flora, in which corolla, petals, and buds are sublimated by chiaroscuro. The flowers stand out against a plain dark background, alluding to the famous vanitas of the Dutch Golden Age. Tulips, dahlias, daffodils, irises, hyacinths, and peonies reveal themselves in all their glorious diversity. The photographs of Leendert Blok are reminiscent of botanists’ slides of yore, immersing us in the immanence of plant life, in which each flower becomes sculpture.

Publisher's description

Harry Gruyaert was one of the first European photographers to explore the creative potential of colour in the 1970s and 1980s

Influenced by American photographers as well as by cinema, his work defined new territory for colour photography: an emotive, non-narrative and boldly graphic way of perceiving the world.

In 1972, while living in London, he created the striking series TV Shots by turning the dial on a television set at random and photographing the distorted images he saw there. A later series, Made in Belgium, portrays his ambivalent relationship with his homeland in a palette of saturated tones.

Born in Antwerp in 1941, and a member of Magnum Photos since 1982, he has embraced the possibilities of digital photography in his most recent work, feeling that it allows him to take more risks and to capture light in new ways.

Harry Gruyaert’s images are autonomous and self-sufficient, often independent of any context or thematic logic. This volume, the first retrospective of his work, is a superb overview of his personal quest for freedom of expression and the liberation of the senses.

Picture of Tough & Tender. English seascapes

Publisher's description

No matter where you are in England, you are no more than a few hundred miles from the sea. There is an unexplained attraction to the edges of the land. England is an island nation and the sea has a mysterious power on the psyche. People are drawn to the seashore. The Sea is expansive and allows the mind to be free and the imagination to slip off to far away places. An island is, however, confined. This juxtaposition encourages an interesting mix of people. English summertime is short; not always sunny. Seaside towns are full of the old Grandeur of long ago. They are fragile places; joy is tinged with the sadness of the passage of time.

The photographs and portraits express a great deal about the uniqueness of the English. They have resolution of spirit and strength. They have courage to sunbathe on rocky coasts, laugh in the pouring rain and stand in the mud when the skies are forever grey. Tough and Tender together.

Publisher's description

For more than 30 years, Hiroshi Sugimoto has traveled the world photographing its seas, producing an extended meditation on the passage of time and the natural history of the earth reduced to its most basic, primordial substances: water and air. Always capturing the sea at a moment of absolute tranquility, Sugimoto has composed all the photographs identically, with the horizon line precisely bifurcating each image. The repetition of this strict format reveals the uniqueness of each meeting of sea and sky, with the horizon never appearing exactly the same way twice. The photographs are romantic yet absolutely rigorous, apparently universal but exceedingly specific.

The second in a series of luxurious, beautifully produced volumes each focused on specific bodies of Sugimoto's work, Seascapes presents the complete series of more than 200 Seascapes for the first time in one publication. Some of the photographs included have never before been reproduced.
Hiroshi Sugimoto (born 1948) was born and raised in Tokyo, Japan, where he studied politics and sociology at Rikkyo University, later retraining as an artist at the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles. He has been active as a photographer since the 1970s. Some of his major photographic series include the Dioramas, Theaters, Portraits, Architecture and Lightning Fields. He currently lives in New York and Tokyo.

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.

Mary Ellen Mark died on May 25, 2015. Shortly before her death, she completed all the work on what would sadly become the last two books conceived and realized by her: Tiny: Streetwise Revisited and Mary Ellen Mark on the Portrait and the Moment as featured here. Both books were printed just before she died.


In The Photography Workshop Series, Aperture Foundation works with the world’s top photographers to distill their creative approaches, teachings, and insights on photography— offering the workshop experience in a book. Our goal is to inspire photographers of all levels who wish to improve their work, as well as readers interested in deepening their understanding of the art of photography. Each volume is introduced by a well-known student of the featured photographer.


In this book, Mary Ellen Mark—well-known for her pictures' emotional power, be they of people or animals—offers her insight on observing the world and capturing dramatic moments that reveal more than the reality at hand. Through words and pictures, she shares her own creative process and discusses a wide range of issues, from gaining the trust of the subject and taking pictures that are controlled but unforced, to organizing the frame so that every part contributes toward telling the story.
