Picture of On Being an Angel

Publisher's Description

On Being an Angel takes its title from a caption the artist inscribed on two of her photographs—self-portraits with her head thrust back and her chest thrust forward. Typical of Woodman’s work in the way they cast the female body as simultaneously physical and immaterial, these photographs and the evocative title they share are apt choices to encapsulate the work of an artist whose legacy has been unavoidably colored by her tragic personal biography and her death, at age 22, of suicide. In less than a decade, Woodman produced a fascinating body of work — in black-and-white and in color — exploring gender, representation, sexuality and the body through the photographing of her own body and those of her friends. Since her death, Woodman’s influence continues to grow: her work has been the subject of numerous in-depth studies and exhibitions in recent years, and her photographs have inspired artists all over the world. Published to accompany a traveling exhibition of Woodman’s work, Francesca Woodman: On Being an Angel offers a comprehensive overview of Woodman’s oeuvre, organized chronologically, with texts by Anna Tellgren, Anna-Karin Palm and the artist’s father, George Woodman.

Publisher's Description

The photographs in this book were taken all over the world, and later archived, stored, and then finally unpacked and furiously edited over a period of several years in a breathless, hopeful search for great images. Compiled in this book for the first time, and appearing as if from a series of dreams, they reveal the narrative of a life unfolding. A pool party in Memphis…women wrestling in a chair, one in a leather skirt…time moving slowly in Dar es Salaam…a vase of flowers on a desk distressed almost to the point of abstraction….a watery jungle in London’s Hyde Park.

Work prints were created for editing purposes, which were stacked and grouped together, pored over, shuffled, piled, boxed, put away and pulled out again and again. Some prints were inadvertently damaged during this process -- they were stained, torn, sometimes even scorched. This final, furious editing phase gave the prints a unique “patina”, and added artifacts to the images themselves, and was an intense, and serendipitous, last stage of creation for the work, just as important to finishing the images as their original subject matter, composition, color, and light.

Huger Foote was born in 1961, in Memphis, Tennessee, and has held numerous solo exhibitions in London, New York, Paris, and other cities, including his hometown of Memphis. His work hangs in many public and private collections. This is his second monograph since “My Friend from Memphis”, published by Booth Clibborn Editions in 2001. He resides in NYC and upstate NY.

Publisher's Description

From February 6 to June 5, 2016, the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain in Paris will present a solo exhibition of Daido Moriyama, a legendary figure in Japanese photography.

Daido Moriyama (born 1938 in Ikeda) invented a new visual language in his work from the mid-1960s onwards. Frenetic and tormented, it depicts a reality that is grainy, blurry, and out-of-focus. Witness to the spectacular changes that transformed postwar Japan, his photographs express the contradictions in a country where age-old traditions persist within a modern society. Often blurred, taken from vertiginous angles, or overwhelmed by close-ups, they show a proximity to and a particular relationship with the subject. Daido Moriyama’s photographs of Tokyo, in particular of the narrow streets of Shinjuku District—where all sections of the population live—, provide a harsh, crude vision of city life, the chaos of everyday existence, strange worlds, and unusual characters. Considering books as the best means to spread his work, Daido Moriyama has published more than 150 monographs so far. His work was shown in major solo exhibitions at the SFMoMA in San Francisco (1999), the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography (2008), the Philadelphia Museum of Art (2009), and the Tate in London (2012–13). It is also part of the collections of prestigious international institutions, including the MoMa in New York, the Getty Museum of Los Angeles, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and the Centre Pompidou in Paris, as well as the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain in Paris. Twelve years after the organization of a landmark solo exhibition of Daido Moriyama, the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain will present the exhibition Daido Moriyama, Daido Tokyo featuring a large selection of color photographs by the artist, shedding light on this lesser-known yet ubiquitous aspect of his photographic practice over the last two decades. The Fondation Cartier has also commissioned a slide show of 291 black-and- white photographs, which will plunge viewers into the unrelenting urban hustle and bustle of Tokyo.

The catalogue published in conjunction with the exhibition will include these images as well as a text by the artist, providing a unique occasion to discover Daido Moriyama’s recent work and to rediscover the subjects that are omnipresent in the artist’s work and his penchant for textures and shaky compositions.

Picture of Preston Bus Station

Publisher's Description

Loose Joints is proud to present Preston Bus Station, the first individual publication of work by British photographer Jamie Hawkesworth. Preston Bus Station is a body of photographs produced during sustained engagement with a site of key significance in the development of Hawkesworth’s practice.

A civic space with listed status, Preston Bus Station in Lancashire, North-West England is often characterised as an icon of Brutalist architecture. Although the building has recently been subject to revere and contention at a national level, the focus here is predominantly directed from a distance at the architectural structure, discounting the public service function that it provides. More importantly for Hawkesworth, the Bus Station continues to exist as a place for people; here we see a space for waiting, passing through, arriving and departing.

In Preston Bus Station, Hawkesworth does not concern himself directly with the political and social concerns of precast concrete. Rather, attention is given to the myriad of people that turn structure into place.

Publisher's Description

This resplendent volume is the most comprehensive study of Walker Evans’s work ever published, containing masterful images accompanied by authoritative commentary from leading photography historians.

The name Walker Evans conjures images of the American everyman. Whether it’s his iconic contributions to James Agee’s depression-era classic book, "Let Us Now Praise Famous Men", his architectural explorations of antebellum plantations, or his subway series, taken with a camera hidden in his coat, Evans’s accessible and eloquent photographs speak to us all. This comprehensive book traces the entire arc of Evans’s remarkable career, from the 1930’s to the 1970’s. The illustrations in the book range from his earliest images taken with a vest pocket camera, to his final photos using the then new SX-70 because his regular equipment became too heavy to carry around. The book includes commentary from three of Evans’s longtime friends, photographers Alan Trachtenberg, Jerry Thompson and John T. Hill. Their insight and first-hand experience give depth to their critical writings on Evans’s work. In addition to offering a broad perspective on Evans’ work, the book also clarifies the photographer’s “anti-art” philosophy. Eschewing aesthetic hyperbole, Evans wanted his pictures to resonate with a wide audience. At the same time, his natural curiosity made him one of the most inventive photographers of all time. What these photographs and writings attest to is a huge and timeless talent, which came not from a camera, but from Evans’s uniquely hungry eye.

Picture of Berlin 1978-1987

Publisher's Description

When photographer Boris Becker showed his first monograph "Photographs 1984-2009", it showed 25 years of photography. For the 1961 born artists "a quarter century of suffering" how he commented with a wink. But Boris Becker started taking photographs before he studied from 1984-1990 at the academy of fine arts in Düsseldorf in the class of Bernd & Hilla Becher. The book "Berlin 1978-1987" shows the photographers early work, shot on 35mm and medium format, that gained importance through the course of history and changes of our perception. Boris Becker photographed in a divided Berlin. In his images we can see the war and the seperation of the city and what it caused in both parts. The book is arranged in chapters that form image-groups and also testify of the political sensitivity of the artist: The east- and westsector of the city, the wall and border installations, the desolate diplomatic-district, the subway reduced to empty wooden wagons and deserted stations, and a series of bunkers that will become Beckers most extensive series later on with over 700 images of World War II bunkers. Gallery Heinz Holtmann, Cologne showed 46 of the works in an exhibition in 2014. "Berlin 1978-1987" now shows the complete series with 55 color- and 34 black & white plates.

The photographer Boris Becker describes himself as an imagefinder. The master-class pupil of Düsseldorfs Becher-class, 1961 born in cologne (germany), is one oft the most influential photo-artists. Less the symbolic power of the motive rather than the visual impact of the buildings and landscapes are the mainfocus of his work.

Publisher's Description

The book before you contains five of the seventeen essays that make up Life on the Wrong Side of Town: Sports Edition, which orginally appeared as a series in the magazine Mondai Shosetsu ("Problem Novels", published by Tokuma Shoten) in 1975 and was then published as a single volume by Shinyosha in 1982, the year before Terayama passed away. By adding Moriyama-san's photographs to the text we have constructed a new edition.

While putting this project together, I went back to Terayama's words as expressed in many literary forms - haiku, tanka, poetry, ruminations, essays, novels, scripts, theatrical productions and dramas. The enormous volume and quality of his output was overwhelming, but I eventually settled on this work, Life on the Wrong Side of Town: Sports Edition. The reason lay in this passage form the Afterword.

"This book is a kind of rear window view of the life of what we call sportsmen. From the rear window you can see the river. Sometimes you can see people saying goodbye. But however miserable the view is, you have to keep the rear window open."

Publisher's Description

Born 1960 in Saitama. Started his career after studying photography under Seiryu Inoue while still enrolled at Osaka University of Arts. While having numerous devoted fans, he doesn’t present new works very often, as his extremely persistent approach is reflected in every single print that he finishes in up to one month of highly concentrated work. Charged with astonishing density and intensity, his works have been awarded a New Photographer Prize at the Higashikawa International Photo Festival in 1993. Photo books include deja-vu #11: Inose Kou (’93) and Inose Kou Visions of Japan (‘98). Solo exhibitions include the “Inose Kou Photo Exhibition” at Space Kobo & Tomo in 2001. He also participated in the group exhibition “Lonely Planet” at Art Tower Mito in 2004, and is presently one of those artists whose exhibitions are most anticipated.

Picture of Sanrizuka (Signed)

Publisher's Description

Japan in the late sixties was the time when Daido Moriyama published "Nippon Gekijo" in Camera Mainichi magazine, and the first issue of Provoke was released. The exhibition "New Documents", curated by John Szarkowski, was held at MoMA in New York. Living in such an era, "for me, after all, photography is no more than a tool for ripping up and protesting against the times", said Kanoh.

Taking off from the U.S. military's Kadena Air Base in Okinawa, Boeing B-52 bombers repeatedly flew over North Vietnam for air raids. The world saw the break-up of the Beatles, and Mick Jagger, with his uniquely curling upper lip, bouncing around the stage in Hyde Park. The younger generation, whether students or non-students, were then very socially active, and they chose to resist authority. The “anger of youth” underlay their daily lives and thought.— Tenmei Kanoh

At the time, the outbreak of the Narita protest movement (also known as the Sanrizuka struggle) drew Kanoh’s attention when he was 28 years old. Being one of the angry young men, he put himself in the site with his camera. During that time, there were already a number of photographers who had featured Sanrizuka. Yet, Kanoh intelligently captured the uncertainty of information and the disorderly atmosphere that pervaded the Japanese youth.

Through his experiences working as a cameraman, Kanoh gazed at society with his unique perspective. Furthemore, although circumstances are different between then and now, the essence of social phenomena seen through his photography remains unchanged.

Forty three years have passed since then, and yet one plot of land remains intact in the middle of the airport, showing that the protest has passed to the next generation. Kanoh expresses that, with such deep attachment to the land and tenacity of ownership, he knows the profound desire and great fortitude of human beings. “Decades have past and I wonder what the young of today have in their minds. I wonder whether I will witness their action and intellect in response to the crucial issue of the amendments to the 9th Article of the Constitution of Japan.” We invite you to see these works on the Sanrizuka struggle by Tenmei Kanoh.

Picture of Shelter Island

Publisher's Description

Shelter Island comprises a body of work made by Roe Ethridge during a summer stay in Long Island, New York. Renting an all-American kit house, Ethridge and his family discovered objects stowed in the garage, things discarded by a different family and from a different moment in time. The faded objects, which are leitmotifs of an Americana of the past, speak of a lifetime of childhood summers: dusty Cola bottles, a plastic bat or fallen kite. In Ethridge’s work, the passage of time, and youth itself, is both acutely personal and stylised, in images that are at once synthetic and spontaneous, laden with familiar photographic tropes which are shown to us askance.

Publisher's Description

Nigel Shafran’s new book takes five interconnected series of photographs and weaves them together with the common thread of domestic scenes. There is a constant sense of forward movement that is sometimes overt, as in the photographs of supermarket checkouts or underground escalators; sometimes implicit and more emotionally charged, as when the photographer faces the inventory of possessions in his mother’s last house. But in each case these photographs deal as much with what has been left behind as with what lies ahead. They carry the inevitability of change and the psychological undertow of time passing moving forward.

Picture of Got To Go

Publisher's Description

Part memoir and part fiction, Got To Go presents a collection of photographs from across Rosalind Fox Solomon’s life, contrasting a narrative of her own early years with other, urgent images that reveal a wider vision of the world, one outside of the rigid boundaries imposed by society and the home. If biography is a net cast upon us by family and shaped by social codes, Fox Solomon lays bare the limits of the net, as she negotiates the cusp between lived life and her imagination. Describing the work as a “tragicomedy”, full of both humour and pathos, Fox Solomon probes the limits we impose on ourselves, not only social codes but also the inherited tenets which are so difficult to escape.

Fox Solomon, an American artist based in New York City, is celebrated for her portraits and connection to human suffering, ritual, survival and struggle. Her work has been shown in nearly 30 solo exhibitions and 100 group exhibitions, and is in the collections of over 50 museums worldwide.

Taking advance orders for signed copies, available March 2016

Publisher's Description

In this new body of work, Beyond Maps and Atlases, Bertien van Manen turns to Ireland. Van Manen says, ‘At first, working in Ireland I wasn’t sure what I was looking for. My husband had died. I dispensed with the people and reflected on the atmosphere. I was guided by a feeling and a search, a longing for some kind of meaning in a place of myths and legends. There was mystery and endlessness at the edge of a land beyond which is nothing but a vast expanse.’

Where can it be found again,
An elswhere world, beyond
Maps and atlases,
Where all is woven into
And of itself, like a nest
Of crosshatched grass blades?
Seamus Heaney

Van Manen rolled into photography almost by accident, taking pictures of her children with an old camera. As her work became more public she was soon drafted into the world of fashion photography. In 1977 she tired of the industry, and on discovering the documentary photography of Robert Frank and Josef Koudelka, van Manen began to explore the developing relationship between herself and her subjects, keeping a closeness and developing a personal, organic style of photography.

This series is rated as one of the most essential in Shomei Tomatsu’s entire body of work.

While Tomatsu’s photographs cover a wide variety of subjects, Okinawa is one particular theme that he has been going back to time and again throughout his life. Having been fascinated by that place’s strong and broad mental horizon resisting Americanization ever since his first visit to Okinawa in 1969, in this series Tomatsu energetically portrays the brave lives of the local people at the mercy of history until reversion to Japanese administration after decades of American occupation, with a focus on the rites and customs of the Yaeyama Islands and Miyako-jima.

These observations have been highly evaluated as a photographic investigation into the foundations of Southeast Asian island culture in the Pacific rim even beyond the confines of Japan.

Publisher's Description

The end of the 1970s saw the completion of Japan's postwar construction, as well as a withering of the student movement and the various terrorist acts that had shaken the global community. The early 1980s was a brief interlude of calm, anticipating the end of the long Showa era, before Japan was deluged by the bubble economy.

I had just returned to Japan in 1980, after studying for four years in Flanders where time moves slowly, and the atmosphere is very relaxed. In addition to the rapidly advancing westernization, the reality of this new Tokyo, where old pre-war Showa is blended with modern Showa (post-war) looked disorderly and chaotic to me, and it was not easy to capture it visually.

I struggled to realize my own mode of expression in this home country of mine, and began by chasing lights of the night-time to deflect this chaos."

Publisher's Description

Premier Padmini taxis, first introduced to the streets of Mumbai in the 1960s, have now all but disappeared following the introduction of laws to reduce pollution in the city. Locally known as 'Kaali-Peeli', there were once more than 60,000 of these iconic black and yellow cabs struggling through the chaos of Mumbai's streets.

Over a four year period Dougie Wallace documented these elaborate Bollywood disco bars on wheels. The crowded streets of Mumbai and the assortment of passengers provide a dynamic and intense backdrop, as do the cabs themselves. Many are pimped with large speakers in the boot that blast out Bollywood hits, or are colourfully decorated inside with posters of Bollywood actresses, upholstered in loud hypnotic patterns, or feature Hindu gods and goddess on the dashboard.

Over recent years London-based photographer Dougie Wallace has establised an enviable reputation as one of the leading street photographers not just in the UK but in the World. He is recognised for his expressive social documentary and a distinct and direct style of street photography. As he says; ‘Human behaviour motivates my pictures. People, their interactions and emotions fascinate me… Translating this, through my lens, into social wit, criticism and humorous vignettes is what stimulates me.’

Since 2014 Wallace has published two successful books, Stags, Hens & Bunnies (Dewi Lewis) and Shoreditch Wildlife (Hoxton Minipress). These have led to several important exhibitions in Europe, the United States and India where he was recently included in a British Council exhibition in Delhi. He also continues to attract considerable press and media attention for his work and his photographs feature regularly in many leading international publications.

Picture of Looking For Alice (Signed)

Publisher's Description

Looking For Alice is an award-winning project by British photographer Sian Davey, which tells the story of her daughter Alice and their family. Alice was born with Down's Syndrome, but is no different to any other little girl or indeed human being. She feels what we all feel. Their family is also like many other families, and Sian's portraits of Alice and their daily life are both intimate and familiar. “My family is a microcosm for the dynamics occurring in many other families. Previously as a psychotherapist I have listened to many stories and it is interesting that what has been revealed to me, after fifteen years of practice, is not how different we are to one another, but rather how alike we are as people. It is what we share that is significant. The stories vary but we all experience similar emotions.”

However despite the normality, the underlying fact is that society does not acknowledge Alice as such, and her very existence was given little or no value. She entered a world where routine genetic screening at twelve weeks gestation is thrust towards birth prevention rather than birth preparation. Indeed, prior to the introduction of screening, children such as Alice would have been severely marginalised and ultimately institutionalised and given little or limited medical care.

Their journey as mother and daughter was not an instantly smooth and happy one either: “I was deeply shocked when Alice was born as an 'imperfect' baby. I was fraught with anxiety that rippled through to every aspect of my relationship with her. My anxieties penetrated my dreams. On reflection I saw that Alice was feeling my rejection of her and that caused me further pain. I saw that the responsibility lay with me; I had to dig deep into my own prejudices and shine a light on them. The result was that as my fear dissolved I fell in love with my daughter. We all did.”
