Publisher's Description
‘Where I Find Myself’ is the first major single book retrospective of one of America’s leading photographers. As the title indicates, it is organized in inverse chronological order and spans the photographer's whole career to date. It covers all of Meyerowitz’s great projects: his work inspired by the artist Morandi, his work on trees, his exclusive coverage of Ground Zero, his trips in the footsteps of Robert Frank across the US, his experiments comparing colour and black and white pictures, and of course his iconic street photography work. The text is all by Joel Meyerowitz himself and the book coincides with a major retrospective show in Berlin.

Picture of Battleship Island

Publisher's Description

In July 2015, MAKIKO was granted rare permission to photograph the restricted zone of Battleship Island, shortly after it was recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage site. The tiny, fortress-like island (also known as ’Hashima’ or ‘Gunkanjima’) lies just off the coast of Nagasaki. Ringed by a seawall, and covered in tightly packed buildings, it was once the most densely populated place on Earth. Now it is a ghost town – completely uninhabited for more than forty years.

From 1887 onwards, its network of undersea coalmines became important during Japan’s rapid industrialisation. But it also has a dark period in its history: from the 1930s through to the end of the Second World War forced labour was introduced. The 2017 Korean film The Battleship Island depicts a fictional story based on the plight of Korean miners brought there. The island also featured as a dramatic location in the 2012 James Bond film, Skyfall.

Abandoned in 1974, all that now remains is the dramatic sea wall that surrounds it, and its tightly packed, concrete buildings, undisturbed except by nature. In the book, archive photographs break the eerie silence of the island’s contemporary landscape and through the memories of a former resident of the island, MAKIKO brings her imagination to bear on what life was like there as a child – a place described to her as a childhood paradise.

MAKIKO is an international award-winning photographer and author. Born in Japan, she has lived, studied and worked in Japan, France, UK, North America and Switzerland. She studied photography at the International Center of Photography in New York and since 2006 her work has been exhibited in Japan, North America and Europe.

Designed by leading UK book designers SMITH DESIGN, Battleship Island is MAKIKO’s second book; her first, Beautifully Different, was a collaboration with Dr. Rebecca Landa of the Kennedy Krieger Institute, to raise awareness of high-functioning autism.

Picture of Experimental Lake

Publisher's Description

This compendium of images is inspired by the dual principle of common good and necessary evil. Canadian photographer Guillaume Simoneau explores a place far removed from our everyday vanities: the Experimental Lakes Area in the sparsely populated region of northwestern Ontario. But rather than a book about the 58 pristine lakes that comprise this world-renowned natural laboratory, Simoneau’s allusive photographs use the freshwater site as a means to look outwards, to consider a world beyond our own reflections. Unhinged from the moorings of narrative readings, the sequence of images floats between botanic life – aquatic and terrestrial – and hand-made apparatus used by an influential community of international scientists based in the area. The findings of their research into human impacts on entire ecosystems have significantly influenced the decisions of governments and industries. By testing, for example, the effects in the lakes of new chemical substances, they have been able to inform global environmental policies. Simoneau’s elliptical documentation of their work is punctuated by sublime vistas of calm waters and pine trees, and of remarkable natural phenomena. United by an enigmatic orbital motif, the photographs in Experimental Lake lead us on an illuminating journey.

Guillaume Simoneau began his independent studies in photography after completing a diploma in applied science. His renowned body of work Love and War was exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago and published by Dewi Lewis Publishing. The publication was shortlisted for both the First Book Award and European Publishers Award for Photography. His new work entitled Experimental Lake is the subject of his second book, published by MACK and a forthcoming exhibition at the Stephen Bulger Gallery in Canada.

Picture of War Primer 2 (Signed)

Publisher's Description

Published in paperback to coincide with a major exhibition at the Pompidou Centre dedicated to the work of Broomberg & Chanarin, War Primer 2 was originally released as a limited edition book in 2011. The book inhabits the pages of Bertolt Brecht’s remarkable 1955 publication War Primer.

Brecht’s publication is a collection of newspaper clippings, each accompanied by a four-line poem that he called Photo-epigrams. It was the culmination of almost three decades of intermittent activity. The title deliberately recalls the textbooks used to teach elementary school children how to read; Brecht’s book is a practical manual, demonstrating how to “read” or “translate” press photographs. Brecht was profoundly uneasy about the affirmative role played by the medium within the political economy of capitalism and referred to press photographs as heiroglyphics in need of decoding.

War Primer 2 is the belated sequel. While Brecht’s War Primer was concerned with images of the Second World War, War Primer 2 is concerned with the images of conflict generated by both sides of the so-called “War on Terror”.

Customer comment: "I’m very pleased with the book. If any of your customers are interested to know, War Primer 2 is excellent especially when matched up with Brecht’s War Primer 1 as republished by Verso." (David Beale)

Picture of Vandalism

Publisher's Description

Between 1974 and 1975, the American photographer John Divola – then in his mid twenties and without a studio of his own – travelled across Los Angeles in search of dilapidated properties in which to make photographs. Armed with a camera, spray paint, string and cardboard, the artist would produce one of his most significant photographic projects entitled Vandalism. In this visceral, black and white series of images Divola vandalised vacant homes with abstract constellations of graffiti-like marks, ritualistic configurations of string hooked to pins, and torn arrangements of card, before cataloguing the results. The project vigorously merged the documentary approach of forensic photography with staged interventions echoing performance, sculpture and installation art. Serving as a conceptual sabotaging of the delineations between such documentary and artistic practices, at a time when the ‘truthfulness’ of photography was being called into question, Vandalism helped to establish Divola’s highly distinctive photographic language.

Picture of ToiletMartin PaperParr Magazine | Collector's Edition  (Signed)

Publisher's Description

'ToiletMartin PaperParr' is a new, special edition of 'Toiletpaper' that presents a back-to-back of images made in collaboration with Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari on the one side and Martin Parr on the other.

'ToiletMartin PaperParr | Collector's Edition' limited to 1000 numbered copies, includes the magazine and the 'ToiletMartin PaperParr' bag printed on the two sides with the front and back cover of the magazine.

ToiletMartin PaperParr Magazine' is a new, special edition of 'Toiletpaper' published by Damiani. This unique edition celebrates a new suite of pictures presenting a back-to-back of images made in collaboration with Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari on the one side and Martin Parr on the other.

The recipe is very tasty: the founders of 'Toiletpaper' hosted Martin Parr as a special guest and asked him to form a dialogue with 'Toiletpaper' images, coming back to them with a photograph from his archive for each image. The result is a rapid succession of images in which irony, subversion and provocation force the viewer to the impelling discovery of the next pair of images.

And if you are not yet satiated by the end of this issue, you have only to start once more at the beginning.

About Toiletpaper Magazine

'Toiletpaper' is an artists’ magazine created and produced by Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari, born out of a passion or obsession they both cultivate: images. The magazine contains no text; each picture springs from an idea, often simple, and through a complex orchestration of people it becomes the materialization of the artists’ mental outbursts. Since the first issue, in June 2010, 'Toiletpaper' has created a world that displays ambiguous narratives and a troubling imagination. It combines the vernacular of commercial photography with twisted narrative tableaux and surrealistic imagery. The result is a publication that is itself a work of art, which, through its accessible form as a magazine, and through its wide distribution, challenges the limits of the contemporary art economy.

Picture of Seduction

Publisher's Description

The act of making photographs is challenged constantly by the seduction of “taking a nice picture”, instead of my purpose of capturing the “spirit” of the subject. The “spirit” may be replaced by the word “life”. Whether the subject by flora, fruits or the human body, it constitutes an interesting effort to hold myself at the very edge (before falling into the dark hole of seduction), while admiring a beauty of the subject which existed before my eyes in the inevitable sensual world.

The series of photographs were all taken with a large-format film camera of 8 x 10 inch to 14 x 20 inch and contact-printed in platinum.

“I like to photograph naked women. The infinite variety of the human body is fascinating: it is amazing and magic to see how different women are.”— David Lynch

Ten years after the exhibition The Air Is on Fire, which unveiled David Lynch’s photographic and painting work, comes the new photographic volume, David Lynch, Nudes, published by the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain in Paris.

Featuring more than one hundred black-and-white and color images, many of them published for the first time, of feminine nudes captured by the iconic artist, these erotically charged photographs are close to abstraction, offering kaleidoscopic visions of the woman and attesting to David Lynch’s fascination with the infinite variety of the human body while also reminiscent of his cinematographic work.

Picture of Election Eve

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 1977 William Eggleston released Election Eve, his first and most elaborate artist’s book, containing 100 original prints in two leather-bound volumes housed in a linen box. It was published by Caldecot Chubb in New York in an edition of only five, and has since become Eggleston’s rarest collectible book. This new Steidl edition recreates the full original sequence of photos in a single volume, making it available to the wider public for the first time.

Election Eve contains images made in October 1976 during Eggleston’s pilgrimage from Memphis to the small town of Plains, Georgia, the home of Jimmy Carter who in November 1976 was elected 39th President of the United States. Eggleston began photographing even before he left Memphis and depicted the surrounding countryside and villages of Sumter Country, before he reached Plains. His photos of lonesome roads, train tracks, cars, gas stations and houses are mostly empty of people and form an intuitive, unsettling portrait of Plains, starkly different to the idealized image of it subsequently promoted by the media.

Picture of The Black Trilogy

Publisher's Description

“Ralph Gibson’s Lustrum Press trilogy of the mid-1970s was immensely popular and influential. . . . Many of the pictures are amongst the most recognizable from the time . . . a surreal dreamscape, gently erotic, with a frisson of danger.” —f rom The Photobook: A History, Volume 1 by Martin Parr and Gerry Badger

An iconic American fine art photographer renowned for his highly surrealist vision, Ralph Gibson is a master of the photography book, which he considers an art form in its own right. In 1970, he founded Lustrum Press, a publishing house dedicated to photography books, and inaugurated it with three volumes—The Somnambulist (1970), Deja-Vu (1973), and Days at Sea (1974)—that showcased his own work in an uncompromisingly radical and demanding way. These books came to be known as Gibson’s “Black Trilogy” and are now considered classics of the twentieth-century photobook genre.

Making a clean break with the prior conventions of the photography book, “The Black Trilogy” created a new visual syntax—page layouts, the pairing of photographs face-to-face, graphic and thematic echoes—that provided a unique language for photographic communication. It soon became the model for a generation of young photographers, including Larry Clark, Danny Seymour, Mary Ellen Mark, Yves Guillot, and Arnaud Claass. “The Black Trilogy” volumes went out of print long ago and have become highly collectible. This reissue, with a new essay by the distinguished photographer and curator Gilles Mora, includes all three books in a single volume.

Picture of The Street Philosophy of Garry Winogrand

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

Publisher's Description

Garry Winogrand—along with Diane Arbus and Lee Friedlander—was one of the most important photographers of the 1960s and 1970s, as well as one of the world’s foremost street photographers. Award-winning writer Geoff Dyer has admired Winogrand’s work for many years. Modeled on John Szarkowski’s classic book Atget, The Street Philosophy of Garry Winogrand is a masterfully curated selection of one hundred photographs from the Winogrand archive at the Center for Creative Photography, with each image accompanied by an original essay.

Dyer takes the viewer/reader on a wildly original journey through both iconic and unseen images from the archive, including eighteen previously unpublished color photographs. The book encompasses most of Winogrand’s themes and subjects and remains broadly faithful to the chronological and geographical facts of his life, but Dyer’s responses to the photographs are unorthodox, eye-opening, and often hilarious. This inimitable combination of photographer and writer, images and text, itself offers what Dyer claims for Winogrand’s photography—an education in seeing.

In The First March of Gentlemen, Rafal Milach creates a fictitious narrative composed of authentic stories. He retells the historical children’s strike in Września in Poland from the early 20th Century, through collaged archive photographs from the 1950s and 1960. By blending these elements, he has created a new narrative, to be read as a playful metaphor for the political situation of the present. This project was created by the Deutsche Borse shortlisted photographer on the Kolekcja Września residency programme in 2016.

Publisher's Description

“State of Nature” shows the extent that natural­-disaster protection has become part of the European landscape.
Claudius Schulze traveled about 50.000 km across Europe, photographing seemingly picturesque landscapes from a crane platform with a large­-format camera. But each of those idyllic scenes contains imperfec­tions: alpine panoramas are crossed by snow sheds, the North Sea coast is fur­rowed by breakwaters. In each of the pho­tographs, protective structures rise into the landscape. But these pictures are not about defining the boundary between culture and nature. On the contrary: the pho­tographs demonstrate how much the two spheres penetrate each other.

Picture of Hope is a risk that must be run

Publisher's Description

The challenge when planning this concise publication was what to add to the impressive list of publications on Robert Adams. The carefully selected pictures published in this booklet come from the rare street photographs Adams took of urban and suburban Americans in the 70’s, at the time living near Denver, Colorado. The feeling of fateful helplessness when seeing smoke rise over the nearby nuclear weapons plant caused Adams to portray his fellow citizens in their daily routines as a metaphor about the value of life in the shadow of existential catastrophe.

Robert Adams, born 1937, became a photographer in the mid-1960s. He is part of the New Topographics movement and published more than forty books, most of them focusing on the american landscape. He lives and works in northwest Oregon.

Picture of Koan

Publisher's Description

Koan is the possibility to open up the territory of pre-verbal.

As human beings, our reality based on symbolic matrix, so all possibility of our thoughts and wisdom be covered and limited by signifying chain. Only vision as a product of the non-material is closer to a concept of purity, so through photography as my own philosophical approach, I try to explore beneath the surface of things by simpli cation and abstraction to awaken spiritual awareness and intuition before the symbolic.

As Eastern philosophies, Tao and Zen always advise people to stay absolutely quiet and purify thought processes. In order to achieve this goal, our attention should focus on the most basic form of the universe’s existence. In Zen Buddhism, Koan is a story or riddle used to help in the attainment of a state of spontaneous re ection, free from planning and analytical thought. In contradiction to Western philosophy, Koan’s emphasize the inadequacy of language and words, and the importance of intuition over reason and logic, to transform the self.

I named the series as “Koan”, and selected abstract landscape photographs to do photo-etching process; the results of this craft are poetic and full of imaginations. Also only uses black ink and print on di erent Japanese papers, the color is deriving from the atmosphere of desolation and melancholy and the expression of minimalism in ancient Chinese poetry and monochromatic ink painting.

Publisher's Description
In December 1974, Paul Trevor came to Liverpool as a member of the Exit Photography Group: three young photographers collaborating on a project to document life in Britain’s inner cities. Paul stayed for six months photographing the hardships faced by people, particularly children, at a time of economic decline and social unrest. In 1982, some of his photographs were published in Survival Programmes: In Britain’s Inner Cities – a book of Exit’s work that is now regarded as one of the most significant documentary projects of its time. In 2011, National Museums Liverpool organized an exhibition of Paul’s work, most of which had remained unseen and unpublished. The show at the Walker Art Gallery attracted 64,000 visitors. People expressed their reactions in the Gallery’s comment books. Four books were filled. Here is a small sample:

‘Social documentary at its finest. One of the best collections I have seen’.

‘My mum once said she felt guilty for all the things I didn’t have as a child. I never felt like I’d missed having anything. These photos remind me why. Thank you.’

‘Fantastic, emotive, honest, humorous documentary of Liverpool. A beautiful piece of history.’

‘A rare and beautiful discovery for me. Your book is wonderful and must rank among the greatest books of street photography I have ever seen.’

Picture of Of Mud and Lotus

Taking orders for delivery expected at the beginning of March

Publisher's Description

artbeat publishers is proud to release Viviane Sassen’ new book “Of Mud and Lotus” this autumn. This new work is focusing on artist’s attention for female power and with collages and unique hand- coloured pieces, Sassen creates images in which abstraction and performance intertwine. In this evocative and imaginary realm of intense colour and textures, the imagery is rich with associative references that allow for layered readings and responses. Her new works also include seemingly abstract compositions: mundane objects and apparently incidental motifs are transformed with collage, filters and streaks of pigment to the point of where their original forms lie unrecognizable below Sassen’s interventions.

After the success of the former publication “Lexicon” in collaboration with artbeat publishers, this is the second “Japanese photo book” the artist has published. With the delicate embroidery on the cover, the book design represents Sassen’s aesthetic eye on the world.

Publisher's Description

Axel Hütte (b. 1951 Essen, Germany) is a key figure in the iconic Dusseldorf School of Photography. He studied photography in Dusseldorf Art Academy from 1973 to 1981, attending Bernd Becher’s class.

Early Works is devoted to the years 1978 to 1995. Alongside portraits of colleagues and friends, which are presented here on a large scale for the first time, Hütte was particularly interested at the time in architectonic formations, such as stairwells and corridors in apartment buildings from the post-war era; underground stations in Berlin; buildings and squares in London, Venice and Paris; and ultimately landscapes in Italy, which are inscribed a special regulatory dimension by fragments of architecture. As different as the places in these photographs are, there is a common interest in their representation.

Night and Day presents around 80 large-format nocturnal and daytime pictures from the years 1995 to 2017, including thus far unpublished works from Canada and the USA. Hütte began his nocturnal cycle with dimly-lit landscapes, before focusing his gaze on illuminated cities in Europe, America and Asia in later years.

This two-volume catalogue is published on the occasion of an exhibition at Museum Kunstpalast, Dusseldorf (24 September 2017 – 7 January 2018) and a simultaneous exhibition at the Josef Albers Museum Quadrat, Bottrop.

Publisher's Description

Catherine Opieʼs photographs include portraits and American urban landscapes, ranging from large-scale colour works to small black-and-white prints. A conceptual framework of cultural portraitism links her various photographic series.

Opie has been presenting images of people, subcultures, landscapes and environments ever since the early 1990s. She is passionate about the rights of minorities, democracy and equality – and how people live their lives.

Drawing inspiration from transgressive photography of Robert Mapplethorpe, Nan Goldin, and sex radicals, who provided a space for liberals and feminists, Opie has also done work ranging from the studies of master-plan communities to S&M erotica for lesbian owned sex magazines. Her portraits often document the queer community.
