Picture of Far

Publisher's Description

This previously unpublished series of photographs was made in Siberia in the early 1990s while Dubuisson was working as assistant director in a film crew shooting a documentary about the former Soviet Union. Challenged by the extreme conditions, filming was difficult and Dubuisson began taking pictures with a small all-weather camera around the villages in the Yamal Peninsula where gas workers, scientists and local reindeer herders lived and worked. On his return to Moscow, Dubuisson struggled to process his film and believed his negatives to have been damaged beyond repair. It is only recently that he returned to this material and has finally been able to produce photographic prints. The resulting images offer a strange, poetic vision of the bleakness of Siberia evoking its remoteness in both time and space through a combination of Dubuisson’s singular scenes of sub-zero life and the unintentional effects of the passage of time and the photographic process. As Boris Mikhailov writes in his foreword to the book:

Everything here reminds me of the cold, of life without a fridge; and the terrible smoke, which covers the sky...I also see traces of dust and fingerprints, which tell a story of their own.

Publisher's Description

Disco Night Sept. 11 is a chronicle of America's wars from 2006-2013. The photographs shift back and forth from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to the USA, unsparingly capturing the violent, ceaseless cost, but also the mystery and the madness, the beauty and absurdity at the core of each conflict. The narrative is complemented by nineteen gatefolds which elaborate on places and individuals.

Photographs are fragments, sometimes only loosely tied to important experiences. An extensive text records some of the missing pieces. The stories that precede and follow the moment of the photograph, conversations with soldiers, anonymous graffiti that's part confession, part boast.

Publisher's Description

Peter Mitchell's follow up to the sell-out Strangely Familiar is a scarecrow odyssey. His new book boldly maps out the passing of time by pairing these surreal totems in the landscape opposite personal ephemera. The juxtaposition of commonplace objects with the Everyman form of the scarecrow highlights the quirky and eccentric view Peter has shown throughout his work - the humdrum and mundane becomes weird and wonderful, the ordinary becomes extraordinary. This is a document of both the literal and the allegorical: blank scarecrow faces in empty landscapes with muted skies connect to a bleak pastoral sensibility, while hoarded belongings map out Peter's life chronologically. Peter, a child of the Air-Fix generation, recorded this collection of scarecrows over many years and presents this as an autobiography.

Publisher's Description

After visiting Japan during the 70’s and 80’s, and after the disappointment to see that even regional cities had been developed to the point where they all resembled a mini-Tokyo, Gerry Johansson (b. 1945, Swedish) decided to focus his creative energy on capturing the environment surrounding the Japanese people, as opposed to the people themselves. He chose not to merely record the bustling modern development of Ehime Prefecture, the core of Shikoku, but to also capture the exceptional natural beauty of the region. He took his camera to the rocks and mountain streams of the Nametoko Valley, deep inside forests teeming with the energy of life, and to the waters of the Seto Inland Sea.

The book is divided into three chapters, according to the book’s title. Photographs taken in Ehime Prefecture, Japan, September and October 1999.

Picture of Daybreak

Publisher's Description

The Bedouin workers were settling down in the field for the night. They didn’t sleep in a building but on the road that runs around the edge of the olive grove. It was really striking; the contrast with their colourful blankets and the prison and the olives and the beautiful light of the setting sun. I stood at the point where the picture was eventually taken and I could see the whole scene and I thought, maybe this could be a picture. Jeff Wall

During his first visit to Israel in October 2010, Jeff Wall came upon a scene of Bedouin olive pickers sleeping on a farm near Mitzpe Ramon, which sits in the shadow of a large prison. Struck by the encounter between prison and orchard, between the freedom of those sleeping under the sky contrasted against those who are not visible, sleeping in cells underground, Wall resolved to return and recreate the scene.

The image was meticulously restaged during the next harvest in October 2011. Setting up camp at a nearby hotel, with the laundry room converted into a makeshift lab, Wall worked with a team of Israeli assistants, following the same routine each day: waking before dawn, photographing just as the sun rose, making several exposures over a 10 minute spell. The image was sought over three weeks.

Picture of Julia Margaret Cameron

Publisher's Description

Julia Margaret Cameron (1815–79) was one of the most important and innovative photographers of the 19th century. Criticised in her lifetime for her unconventional techniques, she is now celebrated as a pioneering portraitist. 2015 marks the bicentenary of Cameron’s birth and the 150th anniversary of her first museum exhibition – the only one in her lifetime – held at the Victoria and Albert Museum in 1865. 

Drawing on the V&A’s significant collection, which includes photographs acquired directly from Cameron and letters she wrote to the museum’s founding director, Curator Marta Weiss tells the story of Cameron’s artistic development. She also presents, for the first time, a group of photographs recently revealed to have belonged to Cameron’s friend and mentor the artist G.F. Watts. This discovery sheds light on previously unacknowledged aspects of Cameron’s experimental approach.

Picture of Archipelago

Publisher's Description

Archipelago is a journey into an interior, upriver, towards an enigmatic hinterland. At any one instance, Matthew Porter sets up correlations between disparate images, configured on each page like islands in an archipelago, clusters which form their own, indigenous subjects. Short texts, placed at intervals, reveal the connective tissue binding varied subjects – Jane Fonda and the Vietnam War, the Hawaiian Island of Kaua'i and Hollywood. What interests Porter is the legacy of the photographic image, and its capacity reach across history, to make intelligible to us what we already know, or, encountered at the right moment, that which we could not otherwise know.

“Porter’s stills function like portals”, writes Lindsay Caplan, “obliquely suggestive of historical events, modernist styles, and codified genres, sometimes all at the same time… this very contemporary condition in which knowing too much and knowing too little invoke the same visceral state”.

The images relate to a detail from a photograph of Katherine Russell, widow of Tamerlan Anzorovich Tsarnaev leaving her home in Boston, that first appeared in the New York Times on 4 May 2013.

Thomas Demand’s work lures the viewer into a reality that is not what it appears to be. Carefully contrived from paper, these imaginary worlds are sculpted, photographed and destroyed. The traces which remain are events in which the protagonist is removed, scenes that are both familiar and out of reach. Demand’s work has been shown extensively across the world and is included in most of the significant private and institutional collections. Recent books include The Dallies (MACK, 2012) and Model Studies (Ivory Press, 2011).

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

Publisher's Description

Belongs to Joe is a photographic essay, compiled as set of notes on Lars von Trier’s film script for Nymphomaniac. The script’s elemental material draws from varied sources: Proust’s In Search of Lost Time, Fibonacci numbers, Izaak Walton's The Compleat Angler, and Bach’s principles of composition – material woven in a continuous chain of associations embracing ecclesiastical history, sadism, fascism, pyrotechnics and botany.

Photographer Casper Sejersen unravels the many layers of the script, working alongside Danish art historian Cecilie Høgsbro, who chose narrative objects which allude to a carefully constructed visual history of eroticism. The notes and facts this book presents have been sampled and sometimes ritually collated in patterns forming small analyses. They form a private book of solace, collected by the protagonist herself – a personal collection of discovered meaningfullness, a herbarium without a title, though simply inscribed: Belongs to Joe.

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

Publisher's Description

For forty years, Wendy Ewald has travelled the world working with local communities, especially children. In addition to making her own photographs, she developed a method of handing out simple cameras and encouraging people – ordinarily the ‘subjects’ of a professional photographer – to author their own images of themselves and their communities. Because the photographers are trusted observers, innocent of the techniques (and wiles) of professionals, the results have the uncanny feel of unadorned truth.

In This Is Where I Live, Ewald redefines the scope of books about Israel and the West Bank. Ewald portrays an entire region through its discreet parts. Her subjects are contested sites where many communities coexist: Jewish, Christian, Gypsy and Druze. Ewald worked with fourteen different communities – in neighbourhoods, villages and schools – using a version of the prismatic approach she’s refined over many years. She encouraged a wide range of people – school children, elderly women and hi-tech workers – to take pictures and document their lives from their own perspective.

Cameras were offered to children uprooted by settlements in Hebron, the West Bank; to young girls at Tzahali military academy; to stall owners at The Shuk, Jerusalem’s lively marketplace; and to Bedouin students at a school in the Negev Desert. The collected images, accompanied by interviews and statements by the photographers, evoke the vitality of the region's cultural landscape, including small minorities such as the Gypsies (who are often swept under the umbrella of Arab identity) – not to mention the myriad identities within majority groups, illuminating the manifold meaning of ‘Jewish identity’.

Picture of Invisible City

Publisher's Description

For a decade, Ken Schles watched the passing of time from his Lower East Side neighborhood. His camera fixed the instances of his observations, and these moments became the foundation of his “invisible city.” Friends and architecture come under the scrutiny of his lens and, when sorted and viewed in the pages of this book, a remarkable achievement of personal vision emerges.

Twenty-five years later, Invisible City still has the ability to transfix the viewer. A penetrating and intimate portrayal of a world few had entrance to - or means of egress from — Invisible City stands alongside Brassai’s Paris de Nuit and van der Elsken’s Love On The Left Bank as one of the twentieth century’s great depictions of nocturnal bohemian experience. Documenting his life in New York City’s East Village during its heyday in the tumultuous 1980s, Schles captured its look and attitude in delirious and dark honesty. Long out of print, this “missing link” in the history of the photo book is now once again made available. Using scans from the original negatives and Steidl’s quadratone technique to bring out nuance and detail never seen before, this new edition transcends the original of this underground cult classic.

Picture of Night Walk

Publisher's Description

Twenty-five years after his seminal 1988 book, Invisible City, Ken Schles revisits his archive and fashions a narrative of lost youth: a delirious, peripatetic walk in the evening air of an irretrievable Downtown New York as he saw and experienced it. Night Walk is a substantive and intimate chronicle of New York’s last pre-Internet bohemian outpost, a stream-of-consciousness portrayal that peels back layers of petulance and squalor to expose the frisson and striving of a life lived amongst the rubble. Here Schles embodies the flâneur as Susan Sontag defines it, as a “connoisseur of empathy ... cruising the urban inferno, the voyeuristic stroller who discovers the city as a landscape of voluptuous extremes.” We see in Night Walk a new and revelatory Ulysses for the twenty-first century: a searching tale of wonder and desire, life and love in the dying hulk of a ruined American city.

Publisher's Description

With his Bay Bridge: The New East Span images, photographer Tom Paiva has richly documented the latest chapter in the history of spanning California’s East Bay. In the late 1920s, economic and social changes in the Bay Area, including the increasing popularity of automobiles, prompted the California legislature to establish the California Toll Bridge Authority and charged it with connecting San Francisco and Alameda County. The groundbreaking ceremony for the longest bridge in the world at that time took place on July 9, 1933, and presaged a nearly three-and-a-half-year project at a cost of $77 million. When it opened on November 12, 1936, the Bay Bridge caused “the greatest traffic jam in the history of San Francisco.” During its first year of operation, the Bay Bridge was crossed by nine million vehicles.
The 50th anniversary of the completion of the Bay Bridge, which actually includes both a suspension bridge and a truss bridge, took place in 1986. Three years later, the Loma Prieta earthquake damaged the East Span, even though the epicenter of the 7.1 earthquake lay nearly 90 miles south. After 53 years and many millions of vehicles safely transported, the bridge was showing its age, prompting plans to create a more enduring structure.

In 2002, the 11-year construction project on the new Bay Bridge began, involving a complete retrofit of the suspension bridge and the replacement of the truss bridge with the world’s longest self-anchored suspension span. Photographer Tom Paiva, on an aerial assignment in the Bay Area, happened upon the initial phase of the project and knew that he had to become part of it Assigning himself the task of recording the creation and the construction of this monumental structure from his vantage point, Paiva believed that his unique vision would offer a valuable, yet complementary, view of the $6 billion enterprise. His quest was to contribute a lasting document that would honor the visionaries—past and present—who could imagine and create these imposing, yet beautiful, man-made spans.

With “Bay Bridge: The New East Span”, Tom Paiva has produced a masterful body of work, documenting one of the most daunting, and finally triumphant, engineering feats of our generation. This beautifully produced, oversized monograph pays fitting homage to its subject, and all of those who were involved in its creation.

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

Publisher's Description

Angola Cinemas honors the fantastic, unique and little-known architecture of movie theaters in Angola, built in the decades before the end of Portuguese colonial rule in 1975. “Initially designed as traditional closed spaces, later in the 1960s open air cinemas with terrace bars became the order of the day, so much better adapted to the tropical climate. The arrival of these cinemas brought elegance to the business of going to the movies.” (Miguel Gomes, “Cinema from way back when...”)

Yet it is not only this exceptional architecture which impresses us and mirrors the experimental spirit of its ambitious and visionary builders. Visiting the cinema was a communal act—it was a crucible where young met old, where people fell in love and where liberation from colonialism was a feasible option. Examining the architectural history of these buildings, Walter Fernandes’s photographs are documents of urban organization in the twentieth century, and of the changing mentalities of a society living within the possibility of its foreseen independence. What has changed since then, and what is the future of these urban cathedrals? Angola Cinemas poses such questions, both preserving these architectonic treasures and reflecting on their cultural, social and affective heritage.

Publisher's Descrption

Over the last twenty years, Hellen van Meene has produced a complex body of work, offering a contemporary take on photographic portraiture. Characterized by her exquisite use of light, formal elegance, and palpable psychological tension, her depictions of girls and boys on the cusp of adulthood demonstrate a clear aesthetic lineage to seventeenth-century Dutch painting. Van Meene captures the intimacy in the photographer/subject relationship, bringing out a sense of honesty and vulnerability from within her models and highlighting the beauty of imperfection. She carefully poses her subjects in their environments to emphasize their fragility, adding a palpable tension to the photographs. At the same time, she captures them at deeper, more introspective moments—masterfully moving between the staged nature of the portraits and the real experiences of her subjects. The combination of van Meene’s instinctive understanding of the universality of adolescent experience and the highly intimate collaboration between photographer and model makes for powerful portraits that resonate long after viewing. This book brings together more than 250 images, for the most comprehensive presentation of the artist’s work to date.

Picture of Naked Reflections

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

Publisher's Description

"In a hidden and cramped atelier in an unknown, possibly non-existent city, we discover naked women. The bodies of these women are palpable, humid, breathing. They are not abstract, not modern, they are real. And the women are not alone. There is always the camera, and they know it is there, though it seems that they are not entirely certain why it is there. They appear to be contemplative, at ease, but is it truly ease, or is it the mellow resignation of women caged by their own flesh, made captive by the heavy shadows that embrace them and sculpt them? The only escape for them is through the windows of mirrors and painted images that surround them - and, of course, the lens of the camera. It is a delusional escape. And then suddenly we are released, we are out in the world: Paris, Halifax, London, New York, Rimini. The brutal juxtaposition makes us question the reality of the streets: are we really there? Are these classics of street photography the dreams of the women in the atelier? Dreams of freedom, of bodies released into structured social space? These photographs are so compelling, so beautiful, we think we have seen them before, but we have not. They are timeless in the sense of "not of our time", like the women in the atelier."
David Cronenberg

Peter Suschitzky started his career as a cameraman at twenty-one, in documentary films destined for German television, in Latin America. When he returned to London, good fortune brought him his first feature film, aged twenty-two. Thereafter, Suschitzky's luck endured and he has been the director of photography on around fifty films, including The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Star Wars Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back, Crash, Naked Lunch, A Dangerous Method, Cosmopolis, Mars Attacks, and Maps to the Stars. His most recent work can be admired in Tale of Tales, directed by Matteo Garrone. His many accolades include the New York critics award for cinematography (for John Boorman's Where The Heart Is), the 2009 ISFF Manaki Brothers Life Achievement Award, and seven Genie awards for Best Cinematography, all of them for movies he shot with David Cronenberg.

Publisher's Description

"First, I would like to express my deepest gratitude to all of those who stood before me and taught immature me about the splendor of living, the seemingly momentary sparkle of evanescence, the power of life with its ability to disentangle everything, and so many other things.

We become afterimages that are constantly passing each other somewhere and small enough to be buried in our memories.

One person is returning a movie they've rented,
one is accompanying their parents on an errand,
one is walking their pet,
one was drenched in the rain,
one has a habit of going to the same place at the same time every day,
and one is just sitting there resting.

There are people who are enjoying something with friends, helping with the housework, going to cram school or some other kind of class, out on a date with their lover, working, shopping on the way home from dinner, suffering from an injury or accident, drunk, going wild, worrying, rejoicing, and distraught with loneliness.

One person talks about someone they like,
one expresses their dissatisfaction with their parents,
one is canvassing for a religious,
one is taking about their experiences in the war,
and one is telling a story that seems like a dream.

One person is a child, one is an adult, one is a man, one is a woman, and one could be either.

Everything is fantastic, everything is ordinary, everyone is inside each person, and they are living each life heartily. Within in an instant, a wave approaches and returns. When I'm standing there, all I can do is click the shutter as I tremble.

Something beyond my own will is captured in a photograph. Although I know that, as I talk and think about photography I am immersed in a lofty sensation, as if this was something that was always mine. But all of this is just an afterthought. It was really only an encounter with a photograph that could have involved that person in that place at that time. That's all.

Photographs always start talking to me in these situations, "Isn't this what you're looking for?" But I can't really say for sure - and probably never will be able to."
