Picture of India Song

Publisher's Description

The extraordinary work of acclaimed photographer Karen Knorr and her poetic journey through the Indian Subcontinent. Karen Knorr began her ‘India Song’ series in 2008, after a life-changing trip through Rajasthan. These carefully crafted images take inspiration from the Indian tradition of personifying animals in literature and art, depicting scenarios that are at once otherworldly and surreal. Knorr’s work explores Rajput and Mughal cultural heritage and its contemporary relationship to questions of feminine subjectivity and animality.

Knorr was born in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, and was raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico, in the 1960s, completing her education in Paris and London. She has taught, exhibited, and lectured internationally, including at Tate Britain, Tate Modern, The University of Westminster, Goldsmiths, Harvard and The Art Institute of Chicago. She studied at the University of Westminster in the mid-1970s, exhibiting photography that addressed debates in cultural studies and film theory concerning the ‘politics of representation’ practices which emerged during the late 1970s and early 1980s. She is currently Professor of Photography at the University for the Creative Arts in Farnham, Surrey.

With a preface by William Dalrymple, essay by Christopher Pinney, and interview by Rosa Maria Falvo.

Picture of Wind of Change (signed)

Publisher's Description

“The wind of change is blowing through this continent, and whether we like it or not, this growth of national consciousness is a political fact. We must all accept it as a fact, and our national policies must take account of it.”

On 3 February 1960, Harold Macmillan, the Prime Minister of Great Britain, made his controversial ‘Wind of Change’ speech to a hostile South African Parliament, in which he signalled his government’s intention to roll out independence to many of the British colonies. The speech was received in stony silence, particularly his critical comments on South Africa’s abhorrent policy of apartheid.

In 1964, The Sunday Times Magazine commissioned journalist Richard West and photographer John Bulmer to document the radical changes sweeping through Africa, devoting a whole issue to their report, ‘The White Tribes of Africa’. Visiting 14 countries over a two-month period, John captured the dying embers of colonialism set against a growing African nationalism.

Africa was just a starting point and over the next 15 years, John continued photographing the profound social and political changes sweeping across the world, from the slow disintegration of the Middle East and the early signs of the collapse of the Communist bloc, to the totalitarianism of China and North Korea.

In the mid-sixties, as now, America was a country of extremes, but the grinding, hopeless poverty of two very different areas – Appalachia in East Kentucky and Oakland, California – was still a shocking contrast to the rest of America’s wealth. President Johnson’s War on Poverty, launched in 1964, appeared to have had little effect. In South America, as capitalism and communism fought out their ideological battle, Bulmer brilliantly captured the collusion between the military and church for control of the hearts and minds of the people.

The pictures in this book offer a glimpse of a changing world. Colour photography as journalism was new at that time. Until the publication of the first colour supplement by The Sunday Times in 1962, colour photography had been used for advertising, fashion or travel pictures but rarely for photojournalism. John Bulmer was a pioneer and his work is now receiving the recognition it deserves.

Picture of HobbyBuddies

Publisher's Description

In their series Freizeitfreunde, the Swiss photographers Ursula Sprecher (b. 1970) and Andi Cortellini (b. 1965) show group portraits of people who meet regularly due to a shared interest. No matter what they call themselves – interest group, association, club, clique or league – the focus in these groups is always on voluntary commitment and the joy of pursuing a common cause or shared idea. These staged pictures were each taken at a carefully selected location, at a scheduled time, with scenery built and specifically arranged to show a certain number of members of the group. The subjects of the group pictures come from all walks of life, age groups, ethnicities and religions. The pictures betray thorough research and organization: the number of subjects and their clothing, the props, accessories – nothing is left to chance. This approach results in unusual, intriguing and in some cases even perplexing images and compositions. The photo series has been exhibited internationally and published in numerous magazines, such as chrismon, Geo, Tageswoche and NZZ.

Picture of Fading

Publisher's Description

"The images in Fading were all created in small rural towns around Sweden – places Elis had never traveled to before. By staying close to home, yet taking unfamiliar paths, he opens the door to chance. Equally, the subjects he photographs are people he has never met prior to this moment: strangers, yet they also make up the vital elements of a very personal journey – a soul searching walkabout. By studying their lives the artist discovers unexpected aspects of himself. Working like an archeologist, he investigates these foreign sites, examining the artifacts he finds there, teasing out the answers to his own deeper philosophical questions. Thus the images are as much about him as an artist and a person, as they are about his subjects. At its base Fading explores these these simple facts: Seasons change; leaves fall from the trees and die, winter moves in – everything is constantly fading. Spring arrives, restoring life and as quickly as new seedlings emerge, fading begins again. Each second ends as it begins. This is what Elis Hoffman pays silent witness to through his images – the exploration of this transitory nature in all things.

Observing Elis’ journey we feel no sense of separation between photographer and subject, what we experience is instead a deep collaboration." (Peggy Sue Amison)

Picture of Whale’s Eyelash, The

Publisher's Description

The great technological leap forward that took place in the 19th century in optical lens systems such as the microscope meant that by the latter half of the century the exploration of the microcosm was a common pursuit amongst the scientifically minded. Individuals often became interested in a particular area or theme and were able to add significantly to the existing body of knowledge in their subject. More than this, another universe and another dimension were opened up in which to dream and travel.

In The Whale’s Eyelash, Timothy Prus has edited together some of these historical explorations and recast them as a play – a play that unfolds through a series of 19th century microscope slides. Each slide contains a specific dramatic moment, and together they tell a story about what happens between the appearance of humankind and its passing away.

Picture of Brooklyn

Publisher's Description

“A midnight scene… only in Brooklyn. My assistant and I were watching a mediocre minor league double header. The Staten Island Yankees versus the Coney Island Mets. Their split. A man came over to join us. He was a Czech Rabin who had arrived here in 1980, a baseball and photography fan. He recognised me and asked, “What are you guys doing?” We told him. He asked us whether we wanted to see a Hasidic prayer and study session. It was only a block away. We accepted. (…)“ William Klein

"Brooklyn" is the newest body of work by William Klein. He sets out on a new project to document the New York borough of Brooklyn, a city he refers to as ‘the America of tomorrow’. Commissioned by Sony, exclusively for their new Global Imaging Ambassadors programme, this is the first time Klein produces work entirely on digital cameras. His artistic career continues to produce work today. Sixty years after his work "Life is Good and Good for You in New York", notoriously re-known photographer and artist, William Klein returned to his native roots to document Brooklyn. The energy and composition of the images are classic. Klein, who at 86 years old, continues to impress his peers and critics. 

 Of the programme, Klein says, "Brooklyn for me, a Manhattanite, has always been a mystery. This year, it became a photographic discovery. With the Sony a99, photography has been a pleasure. The camera has been a partner, rather than a burden. And the quality of the photos have proven to be an unexpected revelation."

Picture of From my land to the Planet

Publisher's Description

Sebastião Salgado's photographs have been shown around the world. In From my land to the Planet the photographer tells us the story of his most famous reportages: the black and white portraits of unknown men and women, workers or refugees, and more recently his Genesis project aimed at the conservation of the most beautiful places of our planet. With a kindness and a disarming simplicity, Salgado rebuilds its path, exposes his beliefs, makes us sharers of his emotions. It turns out that his talent as a storyteller and the authenticity of a man who knows how to combine activism and professionalism, talent and generosity. Inside the book there are fascinating stories of Africa, Brazil, the Americas, Mozambique and Rwanda, and then again the birth of the Instituto Terra, of Genesis project, of the agency Magnum Photos until Amazonas Images.

“I very much like to work on long-term projects...There is time for the photographer and the people in front of the camera to understand each other. There is time to go to a place and understand what is happening there. ...When you spend more time on a project, you learn to understand your subjects. There comes a time when it is not you who is taking the pictures. Something special happens between the photographer and the people he is photographing. He realizes that they are giving the pictures to him. With my background as an economist, sociologist, and anthropologist my photograpy can be nothing but social. Everything in my background, my upbrising, my education, my focus on sociology, anthropology, and geopolitics—has speeded into my photography. Photography, for me, is continuity.” Sebastião Salgado

Picture of Lee Miller's War Beyond D-Day

Publisher's Description

It was Lee Miller’s War. Her work for Vogue from 1941–45 sets her apart as a photographer of extraordinary ability, and the quality of her work from the period has long been recognized as outstanding. Its full range is shown here, accompanied by her brilliant despatches which combine deep personal involvement with professional detachment.

Complementing her writing are two hundred remarkable photographs from the Lee Miller Archives. With their surrealist irony, which at times verges on the horrific and at others on the hilarious, they show war-ravaged cities, buildings and landscapes, but above all war-resilient people – soldiers, leaders, medics, evacuees,prisoners of war, the wounded, the villains and the heroes.The horror is relieved by the spirit of post-liberation Paris, where she indulged in frivolous fashions and recorded memorable conversations with Picasso, Cocteau, Eluard, Aragon and Colette.

The book ends with Miller’s first-on-the-scene, sardonic description of Hitler’s abandoned house in Munich, and the looting and burning of his fortress at Berchtesgaden, which marked a symbolic end to the war.

Picture of Eye to Eye: Photographs by Vivian Maier

Publisher's Description

Since her death in 2009, Vivian Maier has become a photographic darling. Her story—thousands of photographs found in storage lockers and sold for pennies at auction—has attracted the attention of millions. Unknown as a photographer during her long life, Maier was a private woman who speaks powerfully through photographs she took only for herself. Now, Richard Cahan and Michael Williams, authors of the award-winning Vivian Maier: Out of the Shadows, present Eye to Eye: Photographs by Vivian Maier, a book filled with photographs of people she met only once but who will now live forever. It adds a new dimension to her work and adds to the mystery of how one photographer could be so intimate—if just for a moment—with so many people.

Though she’s been cast as a quirky, shadowy figure, moving on the outskirts, these eye-to-eye portraits reveal a deeper Maier. These pictures show that she yearned to connect with people around her. That she often stopped them, talked to them, and always watched closely. These inspirational pictures teach us that around every corner is a chance encounter. Somebody new. But only if we notice. Here we travel the world with Maier, visiting more than a dozen countries in Asia, Europe, and South America. We take trips with her through the United States and get to tag along as she walks around the block.

“As she was photographing, she was seeing just how close she could come into somebody’s face and make a picture of them,” said celebrated photographer Joel Meyerowitz in a recent documentary. “That tells me a lot about her. That tells me she could walk into the space of a total stranger and get them to accommodate her by being themselves. And generate this kind of moment where two presences were actually kind of vibrating together.”

Here, for the first time, Maier’s work is printed using the latest technology, a unique four-color process that produces black-and-white images that parallel traditional silver gelatin prints. It, too, shows Maier in a new light. The result: spectacularly sharp, full-range photographs that continue to amaze.

Publisher's Description

The largest and most comprehensive selection of the work of American street photographer Vivian Maier

Photographer Vivian Maier's allure can be explained by the mystery that surrounds both her life and her work. The story of Maier—the secretive nanny-photographer who became a popular sensation shortly after her death—has only been pieced together from a small selection of the images she made and the handful of facts that have surfaced about her life. Vivian Maier: A Photographer Found is the largest and most in-depth collection of Maier's photographs to date, including her color images.

With lively text by noted photography curator and writer Marvin Heiferman, this definitive volume explores and celebrates Maier's work and life from a contemporary and nuanced perspective, analyzing her pictures within the pantheon of American street photography. With more than 235 full-color and black-and-white photographs, most of which have never been published in book form, this collection also includes images of Maier's personal artifacts and memorabilia that have never been seen before. The text draws upon recently conducted interviews with people who knew Maier, which shed new light on her surprising photographic accomplishments and life.

Vivian Maier: A Photographer Found is a striking, revelatory volume that unlocks the door to the room of a very private artist who made an extraordinary number of images, chose to show them to no one, and, as fate would have it, succeeded brilliantly in fulfilling what remains so many people's secret or unrealized desire: to live in and see the world creatively.

Picture of Erwin Olaf: Volume II

Publisher's Description

Erwin Olaf’s approach to storytelling is uniquely evocative and enticingly ambiguous. According to critic Francis Hodgson, Olaf’s images “lead us to a Stimmung (a sense of atmo­sphere) which is broad enough to repay many second readings of the pictures and so keep us viewers interested.” In this presentation of his most recent work, Olaf expands on his established style of highly polished and stylized color studio images to include a series drawn from his sculptural video installation, Keyhole; a group of black-and-white images he has exhibited as carbon prints; and photographs created on location in Berlin—a departure from the constructed mise-en-scènes of earlier work produced in his Amsterdam studio.

Erwin Olaf: Volume II showcases the artist at the height of his powers as an artisan of atmosphere and a craftsman who uses high polish to both perverse and seductive effect.

Myths and legends have often been inspired and shaped by geologic landforms and similarly, British photographer David Parker uses the natural world as an arena for the personal exploration of new mythic, symbolic, and metaphoric motifs, a theme he previously developed in the award winning book The Phenomenal World (2001). Building on this work, Myth and Landscape brings together images from Sirens and New Desert Myths, two larger projects created in parallel and sharing a common esthetic. For Parker the siren song is a call to contemplation, and his pictures chart many fascinated encounters with an enchanted world of forgotten archetypes, further exploring the tension between the temporal and eternal in our secular age.

Publisher's Description

Sao Paulo and Salvador de Bahia crack houses. September/october 2008.
An endless accumulation of empty gazes perpetuates the stunned deprivation of men defeated by history. 

Everything is done to eradicate all traces of desire, rage, violence, pain, fear or animal pleasure.

Fragile shadows cut free of social control by regaining control over their bodies.

Through the degeneration of bodies and the paroxysm of emotions, the images reveal fragments of society that escape from customary analysis and visualization of the social body, but nonetheless, are its primary elements.

Confronting the inherent contradictions to the use of documentary photography, structuring a physical and psychic path overshadowed by dependence, pain, risk, hazard and unconsciousness. 

Poverty is antithetical to order. 

Bestiality is the ultimate rampart against the anaesthesia of senses and the mindset of a society that defines objects and people as commodity.

Those who emancipate themselves from physical deprivation and evade the moral order access the last magic rites of instinct, as the intimate territory of social resistance, antidote to the merchandise dream, an alternative to the violence of social stability.

The production of pornographic images may paradoxically be the only true committed position, an alternative to the violence of a social stability based on the frustration of unfulfilled lust.

Only the mingling of bodies lies beyond the reach of history, in a slow agony, under the seal of consciousness and irony, warding off death and living up to an amorous view of the world.
