Picture of Recto / Verso
Publisher's Description
Recto/Verso is the latest attempt to grasp the magnitude of the monumental archive of photograms that Robert Heinecken created during the past 40 years. In this current sampling, comprised of work from his own archive, Heinecken offers a look back at the decade of the 1980s, where decadence and narcissism inhabit the same space as spirituality and family values. Though the patinas of these color photograms speak of that generation, their revelations are contemporary in their incisiveness. In looking at the history of the photogram, beginning with Henry Fox Talbot’s ‘photogenic drawings’ and Man Ray’s ‘Rayographs’, Heinecken must be viewed as its most rebellious practitioner – unflinching, enigmatic and alert. Robert Heinecken’s work has been widely exhibited in the United States, Europe and Asia, and is included in many major collections, including the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; LA County Museum of Art; and the Center for Creative Photography, Tucson. Recto/Verso is printed in a first edition of 1,000 casebound copies, with an introduction by Rod Slemmons, Director of the Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago.

Picture of Peter Fraser

Publisher's Description
In the illuminating essay he has written to accompany this new work by Peter Fraser, Gerry Badger tells of the mix of feelings he had on first seeing one of Fraser’s photographs. Moving from surprise, bafflement and incomprehension to admiration and pleasure, he experienced the “flame of recognition” when, to quote James Joyce, the “whatness” of a thing is revealed. Fraser himself has described his pictures of static, seemingly mundane objects as “trying to understand what the world around me is made of.” The results of this quest, which is at once delightfully simple and highly sophisticated, are visually stunning images that, best of all, become more rewarding every time you look at them. Since his work was first exhibited in the early 1980s, Peter Fraser has established himself as one of the most important photographers working in the UK. Drawing inspiration from the work of William Eggleston, with whom he spent a formative two months in 1984, he has become a master in the poetic use of color in his art. In 2004 Fraser was shortlisted for the prestigious Citigroup Photography Prize. An internationally acclaimed photographer, his work has been widely exhibited and is included in many collections in Europe and the United States.

Picture of Still Lives at Manzanita
Publisher's Description
The house in which my parents lived stands at the base of Neahkahnie Mountain, from which the ?rst photograph was made. Their ashes are buried on Nehalem Spit, visible in the distance. My mother especially loved the Spit for what was then its profusion of wild strawberries, and when she was no longer able to walk there we enjoyed bringing them back to her. All of the photographs were made on a return to the town of Manzanita, the interiors at a motel kitchen counter and table. “There is no ?rst, or last, in Forever – It is Centre, there, all the time” (Emily Dickinson). — from the Introduction by Robert Adams

Serving as a companion book to Adams’s previous titles, I Hear the Leaves and Love the Light and A Portrait in Landscapes, this beautiful and touching new artist’s book takes as its tangible subject a bowl of fresh fruit, a clear glass of water, a feather, a stone and shells, cupping them all in memories and light. Printed in a ?rst edition of 500 copies, Still Lives at Manzanita is bound in Japanese cloth, with the artist’s 1970s linoleum cut “Neahkahnie Mountain” reproduced on the front jacket.

Picture of Mouthpiece
Publisher's Description

Picture of After the Flood
Publisher's Description
In late September 2005, Robert Polidori traveled to New Orleans to record the destruction caused by Hurricane Katrina and by the city’s broken levees. He found the streets deserted, and, without electricity, eerily dark. The next day he began to photograph, house by house: 'All the places I went in, the doors were just open. They had been opened by what I collectively call ‘the army,’ of maybe 20 National Guards from New Hampshire, 15 policemen from Minneapolis, 20 firefighters from New York... On maybe half of them or a third of them that I went in, I think that the occupants had been there prior. And some of them did leave certain funeral-like mementos before they left. Maybe right after the waters receded they had the chance to just--to go back to their place and just see, and realize there’s nothing worth saving.' Amidst all this, Polidori has found something worth saving, has created mementos for those who could not return, documenting the paradoxically beautiful wreckage. In classical terms, he has found ruins. The abandoned houses he recorded were still waterlogged as he entered and as he learned (by trial and error, a process that including finding a dead body) the language of signs and codes in which rescue workers had spray-painted each house’s siding. He sees the resulting photographs as the work of a psychological witness, mapping the lives of the absent and deceased through what remains of their belongings and their homes.

Picture of Stephen Hughes Photographs 1996-2000
Publisher's Description
This book introduces an important new artist and an outstanding body of work, made by Stephen Hughes during the last four years at sites all over Europe. Hughes’s photographs are dedicated to the peripheral, marginal zones and strange disconnected gaps of our contemporary social landscape. These non-places are where stray elements of our culture collect, where strange atmospheres generate and life seems disengaged. Buildings become apparitions; gleaming white apartment blocks are stranded by the shore and lone figures drift and daydream across the barren edges of newly built cities. A sense of spatial and temporal dislocation gives the work its unifying aesthetic.

Many of Hughes’s photographs focus on coastal sites, misty wind-blown places of loneliness and reverie that seem to harbour the residues of both nature and culture, proud architectural visions that have run aground on rocky outcrops. Semi-developed or extravagant and incongruous, the buildings become metaphors for a human psychology of disenchantment, of dreams washed away by the sea.

Picture of England / Scotland 1960 (New Edition)

Publisher's Description

In 1960, after an intense year photographing a notorious Brooklyn street gang “The Jokers”, Bruce Davidson decided to remove himself from the tension and depression of that work. He received an assignment to photograph Marilyn Monroe during the making of John Houston’s The Misfits in the Nevada desert, and then travelled to London on commission for Queen magazine. Published by Jocelyn Stevens, Queen was devoted to British lifestyle and Davidson was charged, with no specific agenda, to spend a couple of months touring England and Scotland to create a visual portrait of the two countries.

England / Scotland 1960 offers a poetic insight into the heart of English and Scottish cultures. Reflecting a post-war era in which the revolutions of the 1960s had not quite yet entered the mainstream, Davidson’s photographs reveal societies driven by difference – the extremes of city and country life, of the landed gentry and the common people. Published for the first time in its entirety in 2005, this new edition has a larger ideal format chosen by Davidson initially for his Black & White (2012), and now the standard size for his future publications with Steidl.

Lahall push the boundaries of traditional nature photography to breaking point – a superb book

Publisher's Description
”I have seen” is a photo book as well as a collection of poems. The Photographer Jan-Peter Lahall and the poet Arne Johnsson have each one in their own way approached the questions of life, love and death. During many years Jan-Peter Lahall has put away photos to a project like this – photos that are wildlife pictures, but taken outside the regular road for a wildlife photographer. Arne Johnsson has entered into this world of pictures like a traveler in a landscape: observing, reflecting and composing. Like the photographer the poet has also seen both the surroundings and himself. Johan Ekberg is responsible for designing and has brought out the beauty, the sensitivity and the importance in both image and text.
”I have seen” is awarded - Nature Photo book of the year 2003 of International Federation of Wildlife Photography (IFWP).

Picture of Hiroshi Sugimoto (New edition - revised & updated)
Staff Recommendation
Sugimoto's imagery represents time lapse, culture and perception. His black and white images of movie theatres embody the duration of an entire film shot on a single frame. His seascapes seduce the viewer into the timeless immutability of the ocean. These images allow us to draw on our own experiences of these places making them both personal and universal.

Alicia

Publisher's Description
The spectacular series by Japanese photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto (*1948 in Tokyo) are characterized by matchless clarity and presence. His works are always an absolute embodiment of his chosen visual motif, reduced to its essence. This exquisite monograph is the first to feature works selected from all of the series produced to date— including, of course, his most famous: Sugimoto's celebrated portraits of wax figures seem to face up to their living audiences; his Seascapes show us nothing less than a person's first conscious view of the ocean; the extremely long exposures of Theaters elevate the white, luminescent cinema screen, transforming it into a magical image of an altar; and the fascinating Dioramas—photographs of scientific display cases— allow us to travel with the artist far into the past to observe extinct animal species or the daily life of early man. Additions to the original edition are two new groups of works, Lightning Fields (2006) and Photogenic Drawings (2007).

Picture of Ratcliffe Power Station
Publisher's Description
Ratcliffe-on-Soar Power Station is located in Nottinghamshire, England. Michael Kenna first began photographing the power station in the early 1980s, and over the past several years he has visited the site many times, producing a body of work as ominous as it is beautiful. The Ratcliffe photographs take on the tonal quality of a partially lit ecosphere unique to the photographer and his subject. A brilliant manipulator of half-light, Kenna’s grainy, spatial topography epitomizes the gray skies of Northern England that were the ubiquitous backdrop to his childhood. Kenna’s Ratcliffe photographs create the impression of an atmospherically foggy day, registering the homeostasis of a mood that is a dominant characteristic of his work. Beautifully printed in duotone on matt art paper, Ratcliffe Power Station is published in a first edition of 3,000 copies. Introduction by Jeremy Reed.

Picture of Opis Opis
Publisher's Description
Following the success of our previous three oversized monographs by Ron van Dongen, we are delighted to announce this fourth publication of his gorgeous, large-scale botanical still lifes. Superbly printed in duotone, hardbound, and covered in Japanese green cloth, Ops Opis presents a new selection of the artist’s utterly seductive images. The focal point of van Dongen’s lens ranges from the mouth-wateringly perfect bunch of grapes, to the glorious exuberance of ?owers in full bloom and the daintier, more demure ?oral specimens. He shows us that plants are delicate and resourceful, decorative and essential, and temptingly tactile while commanding respect. But perhaps above all, he presents them as things of great beauty to linger over and enjoy. Born in Venezuela, Ron van Dongen grew up in Holland, where he studied Health Science and Biology before moving on to study Photography in San Francisco. He now lives in Portland, Oregon, where he grows and nurtures the plants that he so elegantly portrays. Van Dongen’s work has been widely exhibited in the United States, Europe and Asia, and is housed in many important collections worldwide. Introduction and interview with the artist by Jane Jackson.

But perhaps above all, he presents them as things of great beauty to linger over and enjoy. Born in Venezuela, Ron van Dongen grew up in Holland, where he studied Health Science and Biology before moving on to study Photography in San Francisco. He now lives in Portland, Oregon, where he grows and nurtures the plants that he so elegantly portrays. Van Dongen’s work has been widely exhibited in the United States, Europe and Asia, and is housed in many important collections worldwide. Introduction and interview with the artist by Jane Jackson.

Picture of Twenty Year Retrospective

Publisher's Description
In association with its original Japanese publisher, Treville, we are pleased to announce a new printing of Michael Kenna: A Twenty Year Retrospective. The Nazraeli Press edition features a larger format than previous editions, with high fidelity tritones printed 1:1 from original prints. It will serve as a companion book to Kenna’s Volume Two, to be published by Nazraeli Press in 2004. Born in the industrial north of England, Michael Kenna has lived in San Francisco since 1980. His mysterious photographs, often made at dawn or in the dark hours of night, concentrate on the interaction between natural landscape and man-made structures. His work has been shown throughout the United States, Europe, Australia and Japan, and is in such permanent collections as The Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris; The Museum of Decorative Arts, Prague; The National Gallery of Art, Washington; and The Victoria and Albert Museum, London. In her foreword, Ruth Bernhard describes Kenna’s prints as “exquisitely seductive, spiritual experiences, akin to poetry and music.” An essay by Peter C. Bunnell considers Kenna’s background and development, providing a thoughtful introduction to the 130 images that represent the twenty-year period from 1974 to 1994.
