Publisher's Description

The images in Steve Kahn’s enigmatic The Hollywood Suites were all made in run-down apartments between the years 1974 and 1976. Alternately provocative and haunting, they were the subject of solo exhibitions on the West Coast and in Europe during that decade and included in noted group exhibitions such as Exposing: Photographic Definitions at the Los Angeles Institute of Contemporary Art in 1976 and The Altered Photograph at P.S. 1 in New York in 1979.

The series divides into two groups of pictures. The Hollywood Suites (nudes) features sexually charged pictures of young women, often partially clad and sometimes cropped. In The Hollywood Suites (mirrors, windows and doors), Kahn concentrated on architectural interiors, making arresting use of windows and doors. The images themselves are grainy and offer an unnaturally sharp contrast between darks and lights. Select examples feature doorways embellished with geometric patterns done in twine.

Kahn, who was born in 1943, was part of an important generation of Los Angeles photographers that included Robert Heinecken, Ilene Segalove and Jerry McMillan, among others. They brought a conceptual and collage approach to the picture. Many were chronicled in the important exhibition at the Laguna Art Museum, Proof: Los Angeles and the Photograph: 1960-1980 and Kahn is also included the 2011 book, L.A. Rising: SoCal Artists Before 1980

Publisher's Description

San Fernando Valley is where John Divola was born and raised, and it served as both backdrop and subject for his earliest, serious photographic explorations, made during the early 1970s. This previously unpublished body of work shows “the Valley” through the eyes of a young photographer who would soon become an internationally-recognized artist with the exhibition and publication of his much more conceptual “Zuma” series.

The black and white photographs in “San Fernando Valley” comprise a series of subject groupings which, pulled together, show early manifestations of the deadpan humor and the ability to capture everyday scenes wrapped in loneliness, for which Divola is now well-known. The book is also, and not incidentally, a fascinating record of a quintessentially 1970s Los Angeles culture.

John Divola’s work is the subject of numerous books and catalogues. Widely exhibited and collected throughout the United States, Europe, Japan and Australia, Divola’s photographs are included in the permanent collections of many public and private institutions, including those of The Museum of Modern Art, New York; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Getty Museum, Los Angeles;  and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

Publisher's Description

Bevan Davies’s meticulously printed photographs suggest an appreciation of this form of residential architecture with respect both to the facades on which their identities hinge and to the built spaces between those facades. Preferring to photograph during early morning hours on weekends, Davies positioned the film plane of his 8x10-inch camera parallel to the buildings’ fronts, to capture the nuanced play of shadows. The resulting images lend depth to structural and decorative elements that are simultaneously utilitarian and aesthetic. – from ‘Ed Ruscha and Some Los Angeles Apartments’ by Virginia Heckert

Los Angeles, 1976 is an exquisitely-produced collection of Bevan Davies’s photographs of Los Angeles residential architecture, a subject perfectly suited to his working methods at that time. Born in 1941 and educated at the University of Chicago during the 1960s, Bevan Davies hit his intellectual and artistic stride in the 1970s, dovetailing perfectly with the uniquely fertile grounds that Los Angeles was becoming during that decade.

The immediate impact of the work Davies produced at this time is reflected in the list of solo and group exhibitions in which his photographs was shown, including such venues as Sonnabend Gallery, New York; International Museum of Photography at George Eastman House, Rochester; The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; and Palais de Beaux Arts, Brussels. Photographs by Bevan Davies are included in the permanent collections of many important including, including The Getty Museum, Los Angeles; The Art Institute of Chicago; The Metropolitan Museum, New York; and The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.

Picture of One Picture Book #77: birds have wings

Publisher's Description

Having difficulty identifying a particular species of bird through her spotting scope, Carol E. Richards took a photograph through the lens to assist with her research. The resulting picture turned out to be far more than a tool for verification. It had a mood and visual content the artist was drawn to, and led to the creation of a series of beautiful, dream-like vignettes. “Unlike some photographs of wildlife that are clear and provide answers,” says Richards, “these soft visuals raise questions. It was a surprising discovery; as I spied on these birds, I could see their charm and individuality. Who knew?”

Picture of One Picture Book #78: Juliette

Publisher's Description

“I was inspired to create a series showing a female perpetrator – a true femme fatale. As opposed to High Fashion Crime Scenes, which focused on the victim and was based entirely in reality, the Juliette series is a fantasy, and flips the model’s role to one in a position of power.  I approached Juliette Lewis with the idea and she became my muse for the series. I wrote scripts for each shot and she acted out the scenes. Each shot in essence is a film still. The only film still. The series was shot in Los Angeles in 2004.” — Melanie Pullen

Picture of One Picture Book #79: Fox About Town

Publisher's Description

In 2006, photographer Martin Usborne spent three days walking around London in the company of a fox, a dead fox, hired from a taxidermist at a rate higher than it would cost to rent a Ferrari. It was money well spent. Usborne had great fun interacting with people on the street and the fox, temporarily at least, was given a new lease of life. Follow this Fantastic Mr Fox, a delightful addition to our One Picture Book series, as he visits a grocery store, joins the queue at an ATM and – of course! – drops in at a good old British pub. Truly, this is one urbane fox.

Picture of Atelier of Cezanne

Pubisher's Description

"Memories may dwell in materials. Standing in Cézanne’s atelier, I felt like I was there at the same time as the painter. I had traveled to Aix-en-Provence to photograph the Mont Sainte Victoire in 2000, and visited the atelier. It retains its original furniture and is now open to the public. The table, skeletons on the cabinet, and the wall with serene light from the window; everything about the room looked as if it was still waiting for new creation by the artist. I came back to the atelier with 8×10 inch camera in 2009 and exposed the interior, imaging a view of Cézanne. This series is an attempt to visualize the memories that dwell in the materials." Risaku Suzuki's newest artist book, "Atelier of Cézanne", is a powerful homage both to the painter Paul Cézanne, and to memories that transcend space and time. Beautifully printed on Japanese matt art paper, and bound in black cloth, this first edition is limited to 500 copies.

Picture of Possession (Signed)

Publisher's Description

AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER, EXPECTED SPRING 2013. Following 'Secret City', Jason Langer’s sold-out, debut monograph, comes 'Possession', a volume of 42 images made between 1990 and 2012. Over the past two decades, Langer has established a reputation for his masterful black and white photography representing contemporary urban life. Evoking the lustrous style of the symbolist photographers, his carefully crafted images, rich with lush, black tones, exude an air of vintage, timeless mystery – “as much Hopper and Raymond Chandler as Steichen” (Bomb Magazine). Langer follows in the tradition of the flâneur-photographer. His images are, as he puts it, the product of “walking the streets alone as a stranger in a strange land.” To shadow Langer on his walks is to visit the haunts of amusement parks, lonely bars, nighttime streets and alleys, beautiful women and their chaperones, gardens, hotels, and supper clubs. Both the still life and the intimate figure study are frequent objects of his quiet gaze. Regardless of their subject, Langer's images return us to a place where what happens in front of the lens is unanticipated and distinctly photographic. 'Possession' is printed in an oversized 11"x14" format on uncoated paper and bound in cloth. This first printing is limited to 1,000 casebound copies.

Publisher's Description

Jeff Chien-Hsing Liao, born in Taiwan and based in New York, is well-known for his large-scale panoramic photographs that capture magnificent detail of the urban and social environment of New York City. Liao received broad critical acclaim for his Habitat 7 series, published in book form by Nazraeli Press in 2007 and now an out-of-print, sought-after first monograph. We are pleased to follow up with the artist’s second oversized monograph, “Coney Island”. In 2010, Liao began photographing Coney Island during a period of transition, for both the place and the artist. A new incarnation of Luna Park opened to the public, the municipal government actively engaged in redevelopment, and the area visibly transformed. At the same time, Liao’s approach to picture making changed as he experimented with new strategies and techniques. He started the project working with traditional transparency film. Although he had always used digital technology to transform the film images into a finished image, he slowly introduced digital picture-making technology to the process of recording the scenes. The resulting large-scale prints have a visual sweep often associated with cinema, encompassing the viewer and providing a strong sense of place. Jeff Liao’s work is widely exhibited and collected, and is included in the permanent collections of such institutions as the Bronx Museum of the Arts; The J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles; and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Opening with an introduction by Sean Corcoran, “Coney Island” is printed in an edition of only 500 copies, printed on Japanese art paper in an oversized, 24 x 12 inch format and bound in cloth. Each book comes with its own carrying case.

Picture of Paris in my time

Publisher's Description

“Paris in my time”, Mark Steinmetz’s long-awaited new monograph, presents work culled from several extended trips that the artist made to Paris over a twenty-five year period. Paris was where his mother was born and raised, giving Steinmetz a special connection to, and familiarity with, the city. In the streets, parks, and along the Seine, Steinmetz plays with the conventions of the Paris photographic tradition, from Atget to Kertész. The work is classical, but with a modern feel that both updates the tradition and follows the path Steinmetz has set with his other books. Beautifully printed on uncoated Japanese stock with our exclusive “Daido black” ink, “Paris in my time” is printed in a first edition of 1,000 casebound copies.

Signed copies also available.

Picture of Elegies of Manumission

Publisher's description


Max de Esteban’s gorgeous new monograph brings together all three parts of his stunningly beautiful “Elegies of Manumission” series. Making use of portraiture as a conceptual tool, de Esteban's portraits, of architectural quality and extraordinary craftsmanship, build a narrative beyond the anecdotal and push the boundaries of contemporary portraiture.

Picture of One Tree

Publisher's description

“Each photograph unfolds itself as a personal mirror, meant only for you, like an unexpected gift. This is the free magic one finds in the world of Machiel Botman.” - Brigitte Ollier, Libération. A key figure in contemporary Dutch photography, Machiel Botman has always photographed as a way to understand life. He is not restrained by photographic conventions, but rather welcomes mistakes and surprises that combine with the highly personal nature of his subjects to create, as Ms. Ollier described it, “the world of Machiel Botman.” Like his individual photographs, Botman’s books and writings are autobiographical and chronicle the stages in his life, but they do not follow a linear narrative. “One Tree”, the artist’s third monograph, comprises a collection of images that are at once dark and hopeful, challenging and inviting. The book ends with Botman’s short story, “The hawk & the cat”, which plays off wonderfully with the images preceding it. Printed in Holland under the direct supervision of the artist, “One Tree” is a beautifully-produced artist’s book that belongs in the collection of every serious photographic library. This first printing is limited to 1,500 copies.

Examples of this work can be found here.

Picture of Grace

Publisher's Description

For 26 years, Elisabeth Sunday has found her muse in Africa: a place of origins, devastating beauty, great troubles and unyielding expressions of life. She has traveled alone and lived among various original peoples who amidst a changing world, have clung tenaciously to traditional ways of life. From the hunter-gatherers dwelling in the primeval forests of the Congo Basin, to the nomadic tribes inhabiting the vast stretches of the Sahara Desert, Sunday's photographs reveal an interplay of invisible forces that connect her subjects with the world of nature. Utilizing a flexible mirror of her own design, Sunday photographs reflections that blend and dissolve the boundaries between her figures and their environment. Sunday's images express an intimacy with a corresponding strength derived from that relationship. She writes: "Mirror photography is much more than photographing a reflection, it produces a visual alchemy that combines the physical world with that of the great mystery….and captures some element that remains hidden in straight photography." Elisabeth Sunday's work has been widely exhibited and collected throughout the United States and abroad. "Grace", the artist's first monograph, opens with an eloquent and enlightening essay by Deborah Willis. The book is printed in an oversized (14 x 17 inch) format on uncoated art paper and bound in Japanese cloth. This first printing is limited to 1,000 copies.

Picture of Between Maple and Chestnut

Weifenbach shows her continued mastery of colour in the setting of suburban America, in particular the lawns, fences and plants that surround the houses, a setting all of us feel we know through movies even if our experience of it is minimal. An idealized view, perhaps (David Lynch or Gregory Crewdson would do something very different with the same location!) but very beautiful for all that. See the photographer's website for sample images.

Publisher's Description

Terri Weifenbach’s long-awaited new monograph, Between Maple and Chestnut, is an artist’s book about “anywhere America”. Here, the trees are mature, the grass is green and the sun is out - and street names are repeated from suburb to suburb across the nation. This is bucolic home, the beginning of life for many Americans. As with her earlier projects, the artist employs color, selective focus, a narrow depth of field, and other intuitive means to arrive at a place somewhere between painting and photography. Terri Weifenbach’s work achieved cult status with her first monograph, In Your Dreams, and has since then been widely exhibited, published and collected throughout the United States, Europe and Asia. Beautifully printed on special matt art paper and bound in Japanese cloth, Between Maple and Chestnut is limited to 1,000 casebound copies. A special edition is also available.

Picture of New York Subway, 1960

Publisher's Description
Enrico Natali was born in Utica, New York and raised in the town of Carthage, a village located in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains. In 1951 he entered the United States Coast Guard Academy, where he developed an interest in photography. Leaving the academy in 1954, he moved to New York and began working as an apprentice to photographer Anton Bruehl. In 1960, Natali began photographing in New York's subways, taking black and white candid shots of people on the trains and waiting in the underground stations. The Subway photographs, which comprise Natali's first major series, significantly transcended his previous work and convinced him that photography was his vocation and America his subject. From that time on he lived and photographed in various parts of the country, including New Orleans, Chicago and Detroit, and eventually produced a series of portraits published as New American People. Some fifty years after the Subway photographs were made, we are proud to present them, finally, in book form. “New York Subway, 1960” is published to coincide with an exhibition at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art. This beautifully produced monograph is printed in duotone on matt art paper, bound in black Japanese cloth, and printed in a first edition of 1,000 copies.

Picture of Redwood Saw

Publisher's Description
In the summer of 2004, Richard Rothman traveled west with a 4x5 camera to explore the remaining fragments of ancient old-growth forests in Northern California. He pitched a tent amid the mammoth stands of redwoods and began making formal, intricate portraits of the forest, which he describes as “the most visually stimulating environment I had ever been in.” Unexpectedly, he also began developing an interest in the neighboring town of Crescent City, an economically depressed logging and fishing community. Rothman was affected by the town’s architecture, its emotional tenor, its political and religious culture, and the sometimes unconscious relationship that the townspeople had with the corralled forest to the east and the Pacific Ocean, which represents the end of the Western frontier. The contrast between the radical, spectacularly ornate environment of the forest and the trashed, disposable landscape of the town that abutted it became the subject of a more complex project which would take some surprising twists and turns. The body of work, made over a five-year period, is gathered together in the artist’s monumental first book, Redwood Saw. This stunning monograph is an ambitious attempt to represent the culture, people, and landscape of Crescent City, and, by extension, the current American moment. Crescent City—a place that at one time must have seemed to possess an almost limitless abundance of natural resources—is revealed here as a compelling and dramatic model of a former boom town that staked its future on what can only be described as an “unsustainable cultural and economic reality.” Beautifully printed in duotone on matt art paper, this first printing of Redwood Saw is limited to 1,500 casebound copies. Richard Rothman’s work is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the International Center of Photography, New York; the Bibliothèque Nationale de France, Paris; the Brooklyn Museum; and the Center for Creative Photography at the University of Arizona, Tucson.
