Picture of Anarch
Publisher's Description
This collection is our third collaboration with the remarkable Joseph Mills. An artist of unique vision and exceptional skill, Mills is influenced in particular by the Dada and Surrealist movements, and by his personal experience of psychosis. He describes his earliest artistic accomplishment as “simply surviving through creativity.” Starting out as a photographer, a snow-induced confinement indoors kicked off a second creative practice: collage. Now, 35 years later, these two ostensibly different bodies of work continue along simultaneously parallel and overlapping paths. Our first monograph, Inner City, features Mills’s street photography while the second, The Loves of the Poets, is devoted to collage. In this gorgeous new book we present silk-screened images, a medium relatively new to Mills but one he deploys with his own inimitable genius. Anarch is fascinating, beautiful and truly unique. Joseph Mills has lived and worked in Washington, DC for many years. His work has been widely exhibited and can be found in numerous private and museum collections.

Picture of History of Photography Remix
Publisher's Description
San Francisco-based artist Kota Ezawa draws on iconic imagery to create simplified renderings that comment on the influence of television, film and photography in shaping collective experience. Ezawa grew up in Germany, studying at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf before moving to San Francisco in 1994. Since that time, he has worked and exhibited in a number of media, including film and, more recently, digital animation. Using well-known films, videos, and photographs, Ezawa explores the appropriation and mediation of current events and images. The History of Photography Remix draws on important art and documentary photographs made throughout the history of the medium. Kota Ezawa’s work has been widely exhibited throughout the United States and Europe, and is included in such permanent collections as the Israel Museum, Jerusalem; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

“New good artists generate considerable excitement nowadays, the more so because there are so few who are really good. One of them is Kota Ezawa” — The New York Times

Picture of Mallorca: Island in Progress
Publisher's Description
With his striking new book Mallorca: Island in Progress, German photographer Marc Räder has landed on a Spanish island known primarily as a Mediterranean holiday hot spot. Over the course of four years, he watched the drastic changes of landscape and architecture, and the annual flow of some ten million tourists over the island. Like an archaeologist, he digs with his camera through the different decades of a paradise being changed by the parameters of global capitalism. Räder’s “docu-fiction” style turns the ordinary landscape into pictures which resemble fantastic architectural models, putting into question the veracity of his medium. The island of Mallorca has become a laboratory of tourism, a temporary paradise: a European melting pot which struggles from overusage, environmental destruction, and growing demands of established and recently-arrived inhabitants. Marc Räder’s work has been widely exhibited in the United States, Europe and Asia, and is included in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York.

Picture of Middle Aged Men
Publisher's Description
The largest group of middle-aged people in the world lives in the United States. This is a group of people who are at the height of their cultural power; no longer concerned with figuring out who they want to “be,” they are by no means infirm. And yet when they look in the mirror, they can’t recognize themselves. In a culture that worships youth and infantilizes old age, middle age is often invisible. The faces of these middle-aged men photographed by Adrienne Salinger suggest and reveal the choices they’ve made throughout their lives, experiences beyond their control, and the fragility of time. The particularity of these portraits allows a scrutiny that simply does not occur in “real” life. Because of the uniformity of her approach, Salinger’s pictures also have a power beyond the simple document. They tell the truth the way a novelist tells the truth – that is, completely, and not at all. Adrienne Salinger’s work has been widely exhibited at museums and galleries around the world, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Fundación “la Caixa,” Barcelona; The New Museum, New York; and the Art Institute of Chicago. This is her third book.

Picture of Between the Two

Publisher's Description
Todd Hido’s striking new monograph, Between the Two, weaves photographs of abandoned houses together with portraits of anonymous models in motel rooms that have obviously seen better days. Hido’s uncanny ability to let seediness shine with an internal beauty was first displayed in book form with his 2001 monograph, House Hunting. That first monograph, as well as his follow-up book Outskirts, are now out-of-print, and highly sought-after in the rare book market. Between the Two comprises 35 photographs beautifully printed on matt art paper, and bound in an oversized format. This first printing is limited to 2,000 casebound copies. Todd Hido’s work has been widely exhibited throughout the United States and Europe, and is included in the permanent collections of such museums as the Cleveland Museum of Art; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

Picture of Between Runs
Publisher's Description
This off-the-wall artist’s book is comprised of photographs made at the Hing Yip printing plant in Dongguan, China by the highly acclaimed husband and wife team of Eduardo del Valle and Mirta Gómez. Between Runs refers to the “down time” artists are given when they are on press, between approving one printing form and waiting to see the next. During a five-day stay in Dongguan to oversee the production of their previous title, Fried Waters, del Valle and Gómez made good use of their down time to produce an insightful body of work that combines elements of traditional Chinese scroll paintings, theatrical backdrops and modern graffiti; all found objects within the sprawling grounds of the printing plant. The resulting images are raw snippets of time that resonate with a rare and unlikely beauty. Del Valle and Gómez are recipients of Guggenheim, Cintas and NEA fellowships in photography. Their work is widely collected and was recently presented in the “Landscape: Recent Acquisitions” exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Between Runs is printed in a limited edition of 500 numbered and signed copies, each with an original Type C photograph, printed by the artists and tipped-in on the back page.

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.

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.
