Picture of Brown Sisters, Forty Years

Publisher's Description

In August 1974, the photographer Nicholas Nixon made a group portrait of his wife, Bebe, and her three sisters, Heather, Mimi, and Laurie. He did not keep the image, but in 1975 he made another portrait of the four—who then ranged in age from fifteen to twenty-five—with an eight-by-ten-inch view camera, whose large negatives capture a wealth of detail and a luscious continuity of tone. Nixon and the sisters have gathered for an annual portrait ever since.

Picture of Tranquillity

Publisher's Description

Finnish photographer Heikki Kaski shot the images for this photobook in a small town called Tranquillity, located in Central Valley, California. Hot and dusty, with junk piled in empty lots and run-down buildings, it seems to be a typically quiet place in the middle of nowhere, resigned to its own character. Yet in the people Kaski portrays, one can sense an underlying tension. Their faces are rarely divulged – covered by hair, turned away or blasted in white light – so we are forced to read their bodies and postures, or to look for signs in the birds swirling overhead, the gnarled trees and dried grasses, the patient dogs. “Tranquillity” won the Unseen Amsterdam dummy award in 2013.

Picture of Winslow Arizona

Publisher's Description

Winslow Arizona features a selection of images Stephen Shore presented in contemporary artist Doug Aitken’s project “Station to Station.” For the project, which Aitken calls a “nomadic happening,” he rented a train, which departed from New York and traveled to nine cities, including Minneapolis, through the southwest, and finally arriving San Francisco in a three-week journey. He invited artists, writers, filmmakers, and performers to participate, and staged a “happening,” which involved exhibitions and performances, at each stop. 

The images in Winslow Arizona, which Stephen Shore shot in a day while revisiting Winslow, Arizona, where he made his seminal work American Surfaces, are presented unedited, in the order that he shot them, making it an improvisational work

Picture of Koan (Signed)

Publisher's Description

Chinese photographer Xiaoyi Chen uses the photogravure process to create extraordinarily beautiful prints on a variety of Japanese and other fine art papers. Chen's vision originates from immersion in Zen and Taoist philosophies: philosophies which, in contradiction to Western thought, emphasise the inadequacy of language and words, and the importance of intuition over reason and logic, to transform the self. In Zen Buddhism Koan is a story or riddle used to help in the attainment of a state of spontaneous reflection, free from planning and analytical thought.

The book's images, mostly landscapes, many taken in Iceland, often dissolve to abstraction. Chen's radiant images, in a complementary sequence and design, produce a photo book that provides an exhilarating visual experience.

Publisher's Description

Serious Alpine photography began in the middle of the 19th century by photographers who lugged large plate cameras into inaccessible regions to produce some of the most spectacular images of their time. Nearly two hundred years later, Olaf Unverzart has photographed the Alps and given them a 21st century perspective. Disappearing glaciers, the steeply inclined asphalt roads of the Tour de France, machinery crushed by avalanches, or huge cement fortifications imbedded in rock and defying nature—Unverzart’s large-format images focus on the marks humankind leaves behind when attempting to master nature. He also documents nature’s own power—in the form of avalanches and mudflows—when it overcomes these misguided efforts. Much more than another collection of nature photographs, this volume is a powerful reminder of the ramifications of human intervention toward Earth’s most majestic features—a story told without ideology or didactics, through the eyes of a keen and hopeful observer.

Picture of Perspectives on Place: Theory and Practice in Landscape Photography

Publisher's Description

Creative Landscape Photography accessibly navigates the history of this rich and diverse genre and looks critically at how contemporary practitioners continue to find new and innovative ways of engaging with the landscape and their surroundings. Practical issues are addressed, such as effective composition and managing challenging lighting conditions. However, this book bridges theory and practice by demonstrating how particular visual approaches have been adopted by photographers and artists to facilitate the communication of ideas and themes, as well as more abstract concepts. 

Writer, educator and professional photographer Jesse Alexander provides an inspiring and challenging insight into the territory of contemporary landscape photography, which will help foundation level and undergraduate students to improve the visual qualities of their landscape images as well as develop their understanding of how to represent the landscape more meaningfully. 
 
This book is aimed for students as well as enthusiasts that have already acquired a basic understanding of camera controls and photographic materials, and who wish to explore the specific territory of landscape practice for the first time and who might wish to challenge themselves to create imagery with greater intellectual meaning. 
Fundamental practical elements will be addressed (exposure, depth-of-field etc.) although this will be within the context of landscape practice, and aimed at developing the reader's knowledge and refining technical ability to apply to their own photographic work with greater confidence. The book will be illustrated with up to 200 colour photographs that will serve as technical illustrations; as points to enlighten particular concepts and ideas; as examples of the diversity of the genre as explored by historic photographers, contemporary artists, commercial and documentary photographers; and as sources of creative inspiration. Some images will be drawn from relevant libraries and archives and introduce readers to the canon of the genre, and others will be acquired directly from contemporary practitioners, including a small selection of the author's work.

Picture of Zhili Byli

Publisher's Description

Arkhangelsk / Russia / still another 140 miles to the Arctic Circle

With these words Andre Lützen opens his book Zhili Byli and that’s the point. The photographer traveled to the far north of Russia and has spent time in a place that is little known and hardly to be found in guidebooks. 

It’s cold and wet, the river is frozen, the streets are gray, at night a lonely lighted billboard - without advertising. People live in prefabricated or simple wooden houses, paint peels in the stairwell.

Nevertheless, people live here, the city has 350,000 inhabitants. They have established themselves in their homes, they are prepared for the long cold winter. Bedroom, living room, kitchen, bathroom. Patterned wallpaper, desk, television, piano, pictures on the wall, food on the table. The residents of Arkhangelsk have invited the photographer in their homes and he has made pictures that just show just they live.

Habitat, in- and outdoors, and how people arrange themselves. Somewhere in Russia. That’s what this beautiful book is about and what makes it so exciting - just because it is so unspectacular. 

In his essay A Journey from Nowhere to Nowhere Leonid A. Klimov talks about his mixed feelings about his cold secluded native land that is still his home, even if he does not live there anymore. Mostly because of the people.

Picture of How to be a Photographer in four lessons

Publisher's Description

In early 2012, an old analog photobooth was installed in Brussels, in a cultural center located near the home of Thomas Vanden Driessche, documentary photographer and member of the group Out Of Focus.

Following in the footsteps of artists like Topor, he decided to use this medium and its constraints to tell stories about the little world of photography he knows so well, through these strips of 4 pictures.

These “lessons” were basically distributed weekly through the Internet, but soon began to form of a real little guide to Contemporary Photography (How to be a contemporary, kitsch, conceptual, war, school of Helskinki photographer, etc.).

Armed with his Valentine typewriter, Thomas gives his lessons with a very personal humor and a gentle irony, highlighting stereotypes and excesses of some contemporary photographic trends. The author, personally embracing many influences from the mainstream of documentary photography in his own work is not sparing himself and also questions, in a way, his own approach.

Picture of Anna et Salomé

Publisher's Description

We are excited to announce the release of our latest publication Anna et Salomé – a book of new photographs by Barcelona-based photographer Adrià Cañameras. Born in 1988 to a French father and a Spanish mother, Adrià initially cut his teeth assisting fellow photographer Misha Kominek, and has since risen to prominence within the pages of Apartamento, Dazed & Confused, Rolling Stone, Die Welt and the New York Times, as well as through his frequent work with various musicians such as El Guincho and John Talabot.

The central focus of Anna et Salomé is the Mediterranean. Developed from a personal project which allowed Cañameras to reflect on the environment he grew up around, the images were captured in various locations along the Costa Brava in Spain and on the French island of Corsica. Shot between June 2012 and March 2013 these beautiful and striking photographs function on both an abstract and geological level, and can be viewed as part survey, part celebration and part meditation.

Picture of Confluence

Publisher's Description

“Abstract beauty collides with the gritty reality of contemporary Asia in Ian Teh’s work, producing an effect that is at once mesmerising and disconcerting. If his subject is the world of the unseen – the people and landscapes that are everywhere, but strikingly unnoticed – then his images, too, draw the viewer into that nebulous space between admiration and revulsion, though there is barely a difference between the two.”
Tash Aw

 
For centuries, ships following the trade winds ventured into The Straits of Malacca, a narrow 805 km stretch of water between Peninsular Malaysia and the Indonesian island of Sumatra. Today, from an economic perspective, it remains one of the most important shipping lanes in the world, linking the Indian Ocean to the Pacific. One-quarter of the world’s traded goods, including oil, are shipped through these waters, with Port Klang as the main gateway to Malaysia. Historically, owing to Malaysia’s uniquely important position as a maritime trading hub, The Straits brought commerce but also foreign influences that fundamentally determined the nation’s cultural makeup and history. Hindu and Buddhist cultures imported from India dominated its early history for centuries. Although Muslims passed through in the 10th century, it was not until the 14th and 15th centuries that Islam first established itself on the Malay Peninsula. The rise of the colonial powers in the 19th and 20th centuries brought the Portuguese, Dutch and eventually the British into the region, followed by further migrations of Chinese and Indian workers to meet the needs of the colonial economy. Today, to sustain its economic growth, Malaysia has become the largest importer of migrant labour in the world and is one of the most multicultural societies on earth, undergoing deep transformations within its physical and cultural landscapes.
 
This series of photographs document a journey, for the most part along the short coastline of Selangor, the richest state in Malaysia. It is a contemporary portrait of a state, and in a sense a metaphor for the rest of the country. On the shore, an hour away from the nation’s glittering capital, are the gritty industrialised shipping terminals of Port Klang and the sleepy, seemingly idyllic rural towns that populate the Selangor waterfront. These images try to offer a nuanced document of what this coastline is today, and perhaps a sense of the significant changes that are ongoing. Here, where land meets sea and cultures collide, entire worlds and realities shift and merge into each other, and questions of race, belonging and identity take on new meanings. Just as prehistoric glaciers leave the mark of their earlier journeys on the land, the outward appearance of these places clearly shows the confluence of past and present.

Publisher's Description

“These images and words are a gathering of individuals, events, places, conflicts and dilemmas that confronted me as I shifted from course to course in pursuit of survival. Some star-coloured, others, painted with rage, fall like rain in my memory. They all simmer down to what I remember, forgot, and what at last I know.” Gordon Parks’ photography. It is the most extensive publication to document his legendary career. Widely recognized as the most important and influential African-American photographer of the twentieth century, Parks combined a unique documentary and artistic style with a profound commitment to social justice.

Working first for the Farm Security Administration and later for Life magazine, he specialized in extended narrative picture stories on difficult subject matter. Covering crime, poverty, segregation, the politics of race and class, and controversial personalities, Parks became legendary for his ability to meld penetrating insight with a lyrical aesthetic.

He was thus able to introduce a broad and diverse public to people, issues and ideas they might otherwise have ignored. Parks was remarkably versatile, travelling the world to photograph news events and fashion, as well as the worlds of art, literature, music, theatre and film. Later in life, he reconceived his vision in fundamentally personal and poetic terms, producing colour photographs that were allusive rather than descriptive, symbolic rather than literal.

Picture of Essence of Photography: Seeing and Creativity

Publisher's Description

There is a lot more to photography than simply picking up a camera, pointing it toward something, and tripping the shutter. Achieving a great photograph requires thought and preparation, an understanding of the photographic process, and a firm grasp of how light and composition affect a photo. There must be personal involvement and personal expression. There must be experimentation, with the recognition that only a small percentage of experiments end successfully.

In this book, best-selling author and world-renowned photographer and teacher Bruce Barnbaum explores these seldom-discussed issues by drawing upon his personal experiences and observations from more than 40 years of photographing and teaching. In addition to photographs, Bruce also uses painting, music, and writing, as well as the sciences and even business, to provide pertinent examples of creative thinking. These examples serve as stepping-stones that will lead you to your own heightened ability to see and be creative.

Creativity is a topic that is almost wholly ignored in formal education because most instructors think that it cannot be taught or learned. To the contrary, Bruce has proven that photographic seeing and creativity can be taught, learned, and improved. This book expands on the ideas that are central to Bruce’s method of teaching photography, which he has used in workshops for the past 41 years.

Included in the book are in-depth discussions on the following topics:

• Defining your own unique rhythm and approach as a photographer
• How to translate the scene in front of you to the final photograph
• The differences and similarities between how an amateur and a professional approach photography
• The differences between realism and abstraction, and the possibilities and limitations of each
• Learning to expand your own seeing and creativity through classes, workshops, and associating with other photographers
• Why the rules of composition should be ignored
• How to follow your passion
• When to listen to the critics and when to ignore them

The book is richly illustrated with over 90 photographs taken by Bruce as well as other photographers.

Seeing and creativity are difficult to teach, but not impossible. This very different, perhaps groundbreaking book is sure to inspire photographers of all skill levels—from beginners to seasoned professionals—to think deeply about the issues involved in creating successful photographs.

Publisher's Description

An examination of European portraiture since the 1990s, this book shows how major changes in the continent’s political and societal realms have inspired photographers to capture a new identity—both collective and individual.

The 1990s saw a resurgence of the portrait genre of photography, especially in Europe, where the collapse of communism and the solidification of the European Union raised enormously important questions about national identity and shared historical and cultural values. This volume delves into this important development, featuring full-page reproductions of work by Rineke Dijkstra, Jurgen Teller, Thomas Ruff, Nikos Markou, Anders Petersen, Clare Strand, and others from dozens of countries around the continent. Taken as a whole, these portraits comprise a new genre—one that represented a break from postmodernist strategies and which allowed for experimentation and the exchange of ideas.

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

Becoming Disfarmer uses a compelling sequence of over 100 images to tell the story of Mike Disfarmer's vernacular portraiture and its transformation into art. This monograph features his vintage prints along with a selection of enlargements made from his negatives in the 1970s, through which his work first became known. Disfarmer's postcard-size vintage photographs are reproduced in full color to accurately convey their varied surfaces, and most of the examples are shown in the condition in which they were found, rather than as restored images. This publication also reproduces the backs of selected vintage photographs and provides transcriptions of all handwritten notes that appear on the objects. In addition, the monograph contains high-quality reproductions of newspaper pages in which Disfarmer's images appeared, locally produced historical journals that include images by other photographers who worked at the same time and in the same region as Disfarmer and album pages like those for which Disfarmer's photographs were originally made. These fascinating additions to the scholarship were collected as primary research by the editor over a three-year period and provide historical context for Disfarmer's portraits. Complete with three scholarly essays, a bibliography and exhibition history, this monograph qualifies as the most comprehensive Disfarmer publication to date.
Mike Disfarmer (1884–1959) was born Michael Meyer in Indiana, and began working as a photographer in Heber Springs, Arkansas in 1914. In addition to selling portraits made in his studio, he processed film, sold postcards and worked for hire. He was considered a mythical figure in his own lifetime for changing his surname to Disfarmer in 1939 and claiming to have originated from a tornado. His portraits--commonly considered as honest depictions of a rural population made by an eccentric outsider--have been compared with the work of masters such as August Sander and Irving Penn.

Picture of LBM Dispatch #7: Georgia

Publisher's Description

Over two sweltering, bug-swarming weeks in July, the LBM Dispatch crew (superbly assisted by Stephen Milner and Brett Schenning) covered 2,400 miles in Georgia, exploring the State’s diverse landscapes, histories, and narratives that were alternately harrowing and inspiring.  From the Civil War to the last beleaguered Gullah Geechee community on Sapelo Island, the result is a sort of see-sawing time-lapse portrait of a region that continues to straddle the past and the present, and that seems to exist in a state of conflicted nostalgia and perpetual reconstruction.

The LBM Dispatch is an irregularly published newspaper of the North American ramblings of photographer Alec Soth and writer Brad Zellar.
