Picture of Seeing Things

Publisher's Description

Aimed at children between the ages of nine and twelve, Seeing Things is a wonderful introduction to photography that asks how photographers transform ordinary things into meaningful moments. In this book, acclaimed and beloved photographer Joel Meyerowitz takes readers on a journey through the power and magic of photography: its abilities to freeze time, tell a story, combine several layers into one frame, and record life’s fleeting and beautiful moments. The book features the work of masters such as William Eggleston, Mary Ellen Mark, Helen Levitt, and Walker Evans, among many others. Each picture is accompanied by a short commentary, encouraging readers to look closely and use their imagination to understand key ideas in photography such as light, gesture, composition—and, ultimately, how there is wonder all around us when viewed through the lens.

Picture of Folk

Publisher's Description

In FOLK, Aaron Schuman’s first monograph, he explores the Ethnographic Museum in Krakow—its collections and exhibits, as well as its own distinct customs and culture—via his own personal history. In one sense, the book focuses specifically on the regional and cultural heritage of Schuman’s forefathers, but equally considers the ways in which this heritage has been collected, preserved, archived, documented and represented via the field of ethnography, and within the Ethnographic Museum in Krakow itself. Bringing together Schuman’s own photographs of the museum’s collection and images from its vast archive, FOLK is an examination of the Ethnographic Museum’s own traditions, history, archives, artifacts and practices over the course of the last century; it represents a story of curiosity, self-discovery and the forging of both history and memory. Personal narrative is interwoven with preservation and documentation, as Schuman wholeheartedly embraces the museum’s stated mission of being a “centre of reflection and understanding, of both ourselves and others.”

Aaron Schuman is an American artist, writer and curator, currently based in the United Kingdom. His photographic work is exhibited and published internationally, and held in a number of public and private collections.

Picture of Record No.29

Publisher's Description

Published by Akio Nagasawa Publishing, Daido Moriyama's Record No.29 marks a special dedication towards the life of his fellow photographer and friend Takuma Nakahira. Having passed away in September 2015, Daido Moriyama's 29th issue within his Record series commemorates the work and friendship shared between Moriyama and Nakahira.

"On September 7th I attended the memorial service for Takuma Nakahira that was held at 10:30 at a funeral hall in Hiyoshi. I had been acquainted with Nakahira for more than 50 years since back when we were both around 25. From the days he was an editor for the new-left magazine Gendai no me, and through the years after he started working as a photographer - including the time we put out the 'Provoke' photography fanzine - we were connected through both photography and the face that we both lived in Zushi. now that I reflect on our compnaionship, it is quite a passionate affair between the two young blokes that we were. Throughout my life, Nakahira was a 'one and only' sort of friend, and a rival at the same time. Even though we couldn't have been more different in terms of both charachter and constitution, there was one thing that we both shared, and that one thing obviously tied us soundly together. Nakahira was an exceptionally brilliant minded person whose body of work encompasses large amounts of remarkable photographs and a number of vivid written statements. It appears to me that my awareness of his presence helped me self-reflect on my own work in a rather relative way. Takuma Nakahira was in all cases an amiable man and friend with a naturally unaffected sense of humor, who every no and then displayed a peculiar kind of lightness. Now that he is gone, I do miss him alot."

Publisher's Description

Award winning Swedish photographer Per-Anders Pettersson shows a new and unexpected side of the African continent as he examines the fast growing fashion industry in Africa. This book is the first time the emerging African fashion industry has been documented in exclusive behind the scenes photographs. The series was taken in 15 countries around Africa from 2010 – 2015 and celebrates a new, vibrant, colorful, and unexpected view of the African continent. Pettersson’s images are not only set to challenge stereotypes in African fashion which include animal prints and ethnic designs, but are also meant to confront the »Western gaze,« a media misperception in which Africa is but a war-torn continent rampant with poverty, diseases and ethnic conflicts.

Per-Anders Pettersson (b. 1967) is a Swedish photographer based in 
Cape Town, South Africa. He has covered a wide range of international news events: hunger in Ethiopia, civil wars in the Democratic Republic of Congo, and the HIV / AIDS epidemic in Botswana and South Africa. His pictures won praise and awards: World Press Photo, PDN, POY, NPPA, CARE, CHIPP, Unicef Photo of the Year, American Photography, Commarts. He has exhibited internationally and 2013 published Rainbow Transit, a book about South Africa in democracy.

Picture of Magic Party Place

Publisher's Description

A pale yellow glow in the late night gloom illuminating the near deserted street below, the neon sign of a first floor restaurant: Magic Party Place. This is an apt title for CJ Clarke’s series of intimate encounters documenting contemporary England through the lives and habits of the post industrial town of Basildon, located 25 miles east of London. A new- town, it was built as part of a massive urban renewal program following the devastation of London in the Second World War. As a constructed community, the town is statistically close to the national average, which makes it the perfect paradigm through which to explore the state of the contemporary English nation. This is Middle England territory, the hearts and minds fought over by political parties for electoral success. Ruggedly individualist in spirit, 73 percent of the town’s population label themselves as working class and, in many ways, it epitomizes Thatcher’s England, the legacy she left behind and the continuation of such conservative policies which seek to make us consumers first and citizens second.

CJ Clarke is a filmmaker and photographer who undertakes long term projects about contemporary Britain. His film Mother & Daughter won the inaugural BJP/Canon Open Shutter Award.

Publisher's Description

The Bristish artist duo Anderson & Low has created a highly original art project based on the brilliant artifice of the spectacular sets from the latest James Bond movie, Spectre. Shooting entirely at Pinewood Studios, UK, the artist duo highlights a head-on collision of fantasy and reality by photographing the sets’ massive scale and extraordinary detail. Allowing the bare soundstage to intrude on the images would normally shatter the illusion of the sets. In this case, however, it has the reverse effect and enhances the sense of illusion, artifice and wonder. Through a poetic and painterly eye, the beautifully designed and magnificently photographed images bring to life these detailed and massive tableaux, creating a poetry and narrative fantasy that mirrors the movie. This book represents a unique study in movie-making and constructed narratives in photography.

Publisher's Description

In 2014 the English newspaper The Guardian declared grey as the “colour of the decade”. In his latest publication Tom Jacobi, photographer of our best-seller “Wo Gott wohnt” (2000), reduces “our world to the essential; our blue planet is in reality a grey one. No colour pyrotechnics, no distraction, pure introspection and meditation. It is a miracle,” observes Bryan Adams. From Europe to Africa, from Australia to the Antarctic and from the USA to Patagonia we follow the long-standing Art Director of Stern on his journey to the timeless beauty of nature. Monumental, moving and penetrating into the very heart of things, we encounter landscapes which teach us to gaze in wonder and awe.

Picture of Western Colors

Publisher's Description

The definitive collection of Bernard Plossu’s iconic colour photographs of the American Southwest.

Bernard Plossu has been called ‘the most American of French photographers’ by his friend and colleague Lewis Baltz. Although he is best known for his work in black and white, often capturing a bohemian world of free-spirited adventure, Plossu has also shot in colour throughout his career.
This book showcases 88 bold and cinematic colour photographs, many of which are previously unpublished, dating from the 1970s and early 80s, when Plossu was resident in the US. Strikingly rendered using the Fresson carbon printing process, these images depict an unmistakably American landscape of motels and rodeos, deserts and highways; a realm that is both rugged and dreamlike, haunted by the mythic imagery of the Old West. They combine to form a memorable and atmospheric collection of work by a supremely talented photographer.

Picture of Struggling for a Humane World / Sugar Cane Syrian Refugees

Publisher's Description

Human Rights Watch (HRW) has been advocating for human rights for decades. Privately financed and completely independent, several hundred employees are fighting worldwide for the rights of the persecuted, of children, of women and ethnic minorities; for the rights to asylum and freedom of speech. What chances does the struggle against persecution, torture and expulsion have today? How can it be financed? What can governments as well as the individual be doing? What is the future of human rights?

In this timely book HRW Executive Director Kenneth Roth, Zama Coursen-Neff, Executive Director of the children’s division at HRW, and philanthropist and financier George Soros, discuss the work of one of the most important human rights organizations of our time. In an accompanying photo-essay photojournalist Ed Kashi shows the people for whom HRW and others across the world are fighting for.

Badly Repaired Cars is a bright, bold and humorous documentation of some of the best (or worst) examples of DIY car repairs. Close up photographs of cars held together by tape, plastic and glue fill each frame and begin to take on the qualities of abstract art. A strip of duct tape across a broken headlight becomes powerfully graphic in form; green plastic hanging from a door divides the frame like a Rothko colour wash.

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

Publisher's Description

For more than 10 years Albertina D’Urso has followed in the footsteps of Tibetans forced to escape from their homeland, many of whom crossed the Himalayan range by foot, to defend their cultural and religious identity, their traditions and their language from Chinese repression. In Out Of Tibet she has documented their new lives throughout the world – including several areas of India, as well as in Nepal, Taiwan, New York, London, Paris, Zurich, Rome, Brussels, Amsterdam and Toronto.

It is a moving exploration of their culture and traditions in the country where they now live. Portrayed in their homes, during their private moments or at celebrations of Tibetan culture, D’Urso focuses on their emotions and their continued attachment to their homeland. It is as if she is bringing together, visually, the many Tibetans in exile who are displaced all around the world – a unique de facto state with no land. His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Lobsang Sangay (Prime Minister of the Central Tibetan Administration) have contributed forewords to the book and many of the Tibetan exiles contribute their own thoughts and experiences.

Picture of France Atlantique

Publisher's Description

The wild beauty of the French Atlantic coast captured in atmospheric images.

With its spectacular forms and lines, France’s Atlantic coast holds a unique, understated beauty. The photographer Marco Paoluzzo has captured austere, almost bleak scenes of sand, cliff and sky. Silhouettes that imply the presence of humans. The sea stretches desert-like from Dunkirk in the far north of France to Biarritz in the south. A lighthouse, a tree, a ship, the spray of the Atlantic – the photographs read like an ancient saga and seem to harbor endless secrets.

Picture of DEADLINE Volume 2 (Signed)

Publisher's Description

In the highly anticipated second installment of the Deadline publications Will Steacy tells the story of an industry in crisis and a family legacy cut short. Steacy’s latest book reveals the harsh realities facing the newspaper industry today in a behind-the-scenes look at one newsroom’s grit and determination to get the news out despite shrinking advertising revenue, falling circulation, lay-offs, buy-outs, and bankruptcy. In his follow up to the critically acclaimed Deadline newspaper, this 190-page book features Steacy’s photographs of The Inquirer newsroom and printing plant, historical material from The Inquirer's archive and his own family's five-generation newsman history. The accompanying essay by former Inquirer executive editor Gene Roberts, whose leadership won the paper 17 Pulitzer Prizes, explains how corporate media consolidation and the shift from newsroom expansion to budget cutting in an effort to maximize shareholder value were the first dominos in the newspaper industry’s subsequent downfall. Deadline not only provides us an open window into the realities of an industry in crisis, but also explains how and why we got here. Steacy’s in-depth examination of the downfall of the media is particularly relevant in an election year in which the consequences of the de-newspaperization of America are on full display as facts and accountability have been trumped by voters' political ideology.
