Publisher's Description

“I entered the Yale School of Art straight from college and left after my first semester. I was 21. I was restless, curious about the America that lay beyond New England, and had a strong interest in the movie industry; I also had heard that Garry Winogrand was somewhere in Los Angeles so in the summer of 1983 I headed west.” – Mark Steinmetz, from the Preface

Angel City West offers a touching, highly personal look at Los Angeles through the eyes of Mark Steinmetz as a young artist straight out of school. In his preface to the work, Steinmetz describes living in a studio apartment in the Miracle Mile district, complete with a futon surrounded by a dozen roach motels and a makeshift darkroom set up in a tiny nook off of the bathroom. It didn’t take long before he ran into Garry Winogrand, for whom he became a kind of unofficial chauffeur, enabling Winogrand to photograph through the car window while Steinmetz navigated the streets of his new home town.

Viewed together in book form, the 58 photographs presented in Angel City West document Steinmetz finding his own voice as an artist. In light of the later projects for which he has become so well known, this early series of street photographs, informal portraits and landscapes foreshadows the sometimes humorous, oftentimes sad, and always poignant mood that runs through Mark Steinmetz’s work.

Mark Steinmetz’s photographs have been exhibited extensively throughout the United States and Europe, and are included in the permanent collections of many important institutions including The Museum of Modern Art, New York; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; and Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. 

This is Mark Steinmetz’s ninth monograph to be published by Nazraeli Press.

Publisher's Description

“Mark Steinmetz makes photographs of ordinary people in the ordinary landscapes they inhabit. His frames document those fluid moments of real, lived life, moments not just grabbled or stolen, but ones where he says, ‘It’s important to take an internal pause.’ An element of the seeming offhand magic in his photographs is how his sense of this “internal pause,” of a near cinematic freeze frame, only enhances his images’ apparent spontaneity. The best art often hides its technique . . . Steinmetz is, in fact, is a “street” photographer: a 21st century embodiment of the 19th century flâneur, a man in the world, sensitive to ephemeral moments as photographic capsules of our larger lives. This will come as no surprise to anyone who knows Steinmetz’s artistic history as a mentee of Garry Winogrand.

You don’t have to be a creature of the urban streetscapes that Steinmetz so closely observes in this book in order to “get” his work. From his books of photographs of Greater Atlanta, to the small world of a children’s baseball diamond in The Players, Mark Steinmetz’s camera focuses closely on these ordinary, even banal, moments of people’s daily lives, even when in some images, the people themselves are absent at the instant of the camera exposure. Like the more formal compositions of Cartier-Bresson, Steinmetz’s photographs capture their own “decisive moment,” less stylized for sure, but often more animated: simply the images of an “American” photographer.” — From the Introduction by John Bailey

Volume 2 in Mark Steinmetz’s triology Angel City West. Building upon the narrative he began with Volume 1, published in NZL Set 2, Steinmetz presents 51 previously unpublished photographs made during his stay in Los Angeles in 1981–84.

John Bailey, renowned cinematographer and expert on the history of cinematography, provides a thoughtful introduction from the perspective of his own chosen medium, as well as that of a Los Angeles native.

Publisher's Description

In Abruzzo, Michael Kenna found a cultural identity that elsewhere, for the most part, has been lost to globalization and instant communication. Kenna photographed medieval ruins, ancient villages and a countryside rich in traditional cultivation. As curator Vincenzo de Pompeis writes in the book’s introduction, “Abruzzo’s heritage, together with its impressive natural scenery, brings to mind romantic connotations that have historically attracted many international landscape artists, particularly in the 19th century. Michael Kenna fits perfectly into this rich historical vein of celebrated landscape artists who have worked in Abruzzo. Kenna’s work often evokes the influences of Romanticism. In his photographs of historic rural landscapes, for example, there is an air of melancholy, which accompanies memories from the past. His images of ruins stir up feelings of passing time, of the constantly evolving  ties between history and nature.”

This gorgeous new monograph by renowned landscape photographer Michael Kenna is published to coincide with a major museum exhibition opening in July, 2017 in Loreto Aprutino, Italy. Richly printed in duotone on matt art paper, and presented in an olive-green cloth slipcase, “Abruzzo” presents 65 images from the series, published here for the first time. “Abruzzo” opens with a bilingual essay by curator Vincenzo de Pompeis. This first printing is limited to 2,500 copies.

In 1983, as the inland basin of southern California was being subdivided by developers and filled in with new waves of residents, a sign at its outskirts appeared that was unusual both in meaning and appearance. The sign, “Indian Bingo,” came into view as you emerged from the basin traveling east through the San Gorgonio Pass into the Coachella Valley headed for Palm Springs. .

Picture of Jantar Mantar

Publisher's Description

Born in France in 1952, Simon Chaput moved to New York City in the early 1980s, and quickly became immersed in the downtown art scene through close friends Christo and Jeanne-Claude. It was during this time that he met Isamu Noguchi, who inspired him to revisit his childhood passion for photography.

This rekindling led him to India, and the Jantar Mantar. Over the course of a year, Chaput spent time traveling to different places, and photographing the stone observatories that were built in the 18th century for the study of astronomy. It was in these early pictures that he developed his unique, poetic, and abstract style of light playing with negative space, a style that continues in his series on New York, Waterfalls, and Nudes.

While in the process of moving his studio of 30 years from Manhattan to Miami, Chaput discovered these previously unprinted images. He realized how influential they are to his whole body of work, and an intense printing session followed in his beloved darkroom. Perfectly capturing the striking combinations of geometrical forms of the Jantar Mantar, Chaput presents mysterious and romantic locations where one could spend hours in visual exploration. Indeed, he spent hours waiting for the right light and angles, and for the many visitors to have left the famous Indian sites.

Limited to 1,200 hand-numbered copies, Jantar Mantar is beautifully printed in duotone on uncoated Japanese art paper and presented in a custom slipcase. The book includes an original short story by the renowned author Salman Rushdie, written specifically to accompany Chaput’s dramatically beautiful photographs. Simon Chaput is represented in New York by the Howard Greenberg Gallery.

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.” – Toshio Shibata, from the Afterword



Born in Japan in 1949, Toshio Shibata entered the painting department of the University of Arts of Tokyo in 1968. He later decided to continue his studies in Europe at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Gant (Belgium) where he turned to photography. It was upon his return to Japan in 1980 that he made the haunting, nighttime photographs of Tokyo presented here for the first time.

Publisher's Description

“Encountering the American west for the first time in the early 1970s, I became fascinated with the landscapes and iconography of mobile homes. In a previous century Americans migrated west in Prairie Schooners to become farmers or shopkeepers. After the Second World War they continued this ‘Westward Ho!’, but now in commercially-fabricated mobile homes, often to retirement. These new pioneers clustered in communities that transformed the western landscape and its built environment through a new architecture of mobility.

Mobile home manufacturers produce a range of styles with architectural references that animate cultural aspirations or memories of home and community left behind. After choosing a basic style, new owners make individual touches to the exterior and lawn that transform the generic into the personal. Viewed from a surrounding hillside, mobile home parks look like arabesques of uniform aluminum boxes. On close observation, however, they reveal a rich flora and fauna of personal expression and longing for both individuality and community.” – John Schott, from the Preface

The images in Mobile Homes 1975-1976 were made with an 8x10-inch Deardorff view camera in California during 1975 and 1976. This project followed photographs of Route 66 motels in 1973 and 1974, work which was included in “New Topographics: Photographs of a Man-Altered Landscape”, at George Eastman House in 1975 and John Schott | Route 66: 1973–1974, Nazraeli Press, 2014 (NZ Library: Set 1).

Publisher's Description

Born in Chicago, Illinois, in 1935, Philip Melnick grew up in Los Angeles, where he attended the University of California. In the 1970s, shooting with a medium format camera, Melnick made black-and-white photographs of his surroundings, exploring the unique sense of style found in the Southern California urban landscape. Nineteen Seventies California offers a beautifully presented selection of Melnick’s most striking work from this period, in which he displays a keen eye for the character of its vernacular architecture and the distinctive look of its streets: the quirky confluence of a single parked car with a street facing wall and a fragmented apartment building; the intersection of street, fence and another non-descript apartment house. He isolates the intricate pattern of a wall, creating arresting fusions of everyday sights and geometric abstraction. “Melnick’s images emphasize a push-pull, hard-soft tension that give his pictures distinguished style and great beauty,” wrote the late Fred McDarrah, who was himself a photographer for The Village Voice, as well as a writer, during the years that this series was produced.

Publisher's Description

Kazuo Kitai dropped out six months into his first year of art school, revealing a rebellious streak that led him to become involved in the protest movements of 1960s Japan. His first photography book, “Resistance”, was self-published in 1965. For the rest of the 1960s he continued to follow radical student protests, producing Barricade, Agitators and finally Sanrizuka in 1971.

As the 1960s came to a close, Kitai became disillusioned with political themes and turned to the everyday life of ordinary people. Kitai`s first journey was to one of the most remote parts of Japan, the Shimokita Peninsula, and photographs from this journey to Shimokita in 1970 make up the first half of this book. In 1972 and 1973 Kitai traveled again to this most northerly part of Honshu, to the neighboring area of Tsugaru, and this makes up the other half of this book.

These regions of Shimokita and Tsugaru had been very isolated and barren, with bitterly cold winters. Local language, legends and ancient beliefs had survived into the modern era. The region was known for shamanism and communion with the dead spirits gathering around the holy mountain of Osorezan.

During the rest of the 1970s, Kitai was to continue his exploration of rural areas of Japan, for which, in 1976, he received the award of the inaugural Ihei Kimura Prize, Japan`s most prestigious award for photography.

Publisher's Description

Robbert Flick, born in Holland in 1939, is a Southern California artist who uses photography as his primary medium. This gorgeous new monograph presents an important, early body of work that would inform Flick’s approach to all of his subsequent artistic activities: 

"The late 1960s was an open-ended time with very few boundaries. I was interested in rendering my photographic experience of Los Angeles, and wanted to emphasize the process of that experience. Rather than framing a moment, it became important to acknowledge it. This meant that the act of photographing became a gesture. I was also quite poor and had a limited amount of film. I kept some several dozen self-rolled films in a shoebox; whenever I went out I would reach in for four or five of them, and return them back into the box when exposed, leaving a snippet of leader so the film could be reused. I would have absolutely no idea what was on which film I put in my camera.

At the time I would think of film as an endless continuum, and there was a wish to acknowledge that aspect visually … the idea of multiple exposures was linked to ideas about simultaneity, the use of the “I Ching”  and “there is no such thing as accident”. I photographed in this manner for a period of three years."

One of the images on the cover of the book captures a moment from an Ortiz destruction event: where a piano filled with blood was hammered apart with an axe and subsequently a large number of mice were set free in mousetrap-filled areas on the floor. This Destruction Performance very much summarized the political conditions of the time and the senseless destruction of human life and landscapes engendered by the Vietnam war.

Publisher's Description

Special edition of 100 copies, each with a signed and numbered original archival pigment print, presented with a signed copy of the book in a custom clamshell box.

California made history with the creation of the nation’s first statewide system of ocean parks − a network of 124 Marine Protected Areas stretching from Oregon to the Mexico border. Like national parks on land, MPAs are magnificent in beauty and wildness while providing protection for wildlife, solutions to climate change, and recreational resources for all. Soon after the system was established, photographer Jasmine Swope set out to capture the essence of the marine parks. Her quest took her up and down California’s 1,100-mile long coastline. The result is “Our Ocean’s Edge,” a photographic documentary project coupled with original narratives written by author Dwight Holing that celebrates these fragile seascapes while increasing awareness about their natural benefits and inspiring conservation action. This beautiful clothbound monograph comprises 55 plates beautifully printed in duotone, and opens with a foreword by Wallace J Nichols.

Swope's photographs have the soft look of richly worked, large-scale graphite drawings. In addition to her chosen printing technique, it is achieved through lengthy exposures that blur contours, enhance atmospherics and blend the motions of waves and birds into gentle near-abstractions. One result is to recast familiar sights, recorded in millions of snapshots of tourist scenery, into something alien and almost extraterrestrial. Rocky outcroppings rising above foggy gray swirls of luminosity might be on some far-off mountaintop or even on a Hollywood backlot. They're like mysterious landscapes glimpsed on another planet. That they're actually close to home makes the visual estrangement salutary. Swope's camera can only show the world's surface; however lovely the outward appearance might be, the complex but largely hidden dynamic of a habitat is what matters. Her photographs deftly evoke the presence of more than the eye can see.

Picture of Proverbs

Publisher's Description

Gregori Maiofis’s work has been influenced by multinational and multicultural concerns as well as his own genetic history. He comes from a family of artists and architects, and he grew up in St. Petersburg, a sophisticated city that is considered the capital of classical museum style. After a brief stint in Los Angeles, during which time he learned new art forms and honed his English language skills, Maiofis returned to his native St. Petersburg, because, as he states, “I can do things here artistically that I couldn’t do anywhere else.”

Proverbs is an ongoing series of photographs in which the artist focuses on universal truths. Using trained circus animals in many of his images – from a gargantuan brown bear to monkeys, dogs, lions and most recently, elephants – in settings absent of artifacts or other cultural information, Maiofis offers visually poignant, strike to the heart-of-the-matter images. (His latest work, Closed Mouth Catches No Flies, was an image that Maiofis had visualized very early on, but it wasn’t until years later that he finally met a lion tamer who, as part of his performance, actually puts his head in the mouth of a lion.)

Maiofis’ work has has been the subject of solo exhibitions across Russia, Europe, and the United States. His work is included in the permanent collections in many museums, including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the Moscow Museum of Modern Art, the Novy Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia and the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, California.

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.

LIMITED QUANTITY

Nazraeli Press is delighted to announce our newest monograph by Mark Steinmetz, The Players. This long-awaited publication presents 73 of Steinmetz’s photographs of adolescent and teenaged baseball players, on the field and in the dugout, focused on the game and lost in their own worlds. Made between 1986 and 1990, the photographs are classic Steinmetz: tenderness, humor, and humanism are all present here, as is Steinmetz’s exquisite use of natural light and attention to poetic detail.

“The kids in Steinmetz’s photographs are ages 6 to 13, with a few older boys. Steinmetz must remember how awkward and uncoordinated bodies that age can be. His empathy is evident throughout the series. Most of these kids are too young to have the grace, skill or concentration required and are too green to experience the sheer pleasure of knowing they are good, maybe really good, ballplayers in an unforgiving sport. These kids run into each other in pursuit of a fly ball. Hope drives their swings more than their awareness of the art of hitting...Steinmetz concentrates less on the players in the field than those outside the base lines who are waiting to play, or cooling off. He observes the managers as well as the spectators who love the game or one of the players, or who just have a free afternoon. He sees “high fives” as well as the “what were you thinking” moments. His photographs have all the skill and grace lacking in the players.” — from the Introduction by Anne Tucker
