Picture of Rail Magic

Publisher's Description

In 1949 René Groebli shot a series of images around and on top of trains in France, His working style was stimulated by his experiences with moving images, his fascination with movies. In many experiments he tried to express the dynamism of movement in single photographs. Lasting experiences – like his first train journey from Zurich to Paris – brought him to a city in which he immersed fully in the themes of romanticism and movement in the atmosphere of the French steam trains.

At the end of 1949 RAIL MAGIC was published for the first time, 15 images in a publication that the artist financed himself. It was a daring opus in a time in which photography presented itself quite conservatively and hardly full of dynamism, where honest tradition demanded easily understood documentation. No surprise then, that Groebli’s images were met with rejection. Of course with time passing the work has been met with great admiration by photo historians and today an original publication is a treasured (and pricey) item by book collectors.

With a fresh perception, René Groebli started for this edition from the 15 photographs of the first publication and fashioned this new selection of 74 images, a sort of gem from the beginnings of the “Subjektive Fotografie” as a remembrance of the times when the smell of soot and of smoke intensified the magic between black and white, between Paris and Zurich.

With an essay by René Schlachter.

74 photographs, taken with either a Leica III F with one single lens (Elmar 50 mm, 1:3.5) or with the old twin-lens Rollei ex.

Picture of Tibet: Culture on the Edge

Publisher's Description

Firsthand accounts and spectacular photographs combine to form a fascinating portrait of the endangered Tibetan people, their plateau, and their cultural landscape. Known as the “water tower of Asia,” the Tibetan Plateau is heating up twice as fast as the global average. These rapidly melting glaciers-along with recent unprecedented development on the plateau-are quickly changing the lives of the deeply devotional nomads, monks, and farmers who have lived in this area for centuries.

Photographer Phil Borges uses individual stories and portraits to illustrate how dramatic development, climate change, and the deep devotion of the Tibetan people are interacting to transform Tibetan culture. The portraits of the land and the people bring a powerful visual component as the reader meets and learns about Tibet firsthand through these storytellers.

Picture of Robert Rauschenberg: Photographs 1949-1962

Publisher's Description

Robert Rauschenberg's engagement with photography began in the late 1940s under the tutelage of Hazel Larsen Archer at Black Mountain College in North Carolina. This exposure (or experience) was so great that for a time Rauschenberg was unsure whether to pursue painting or photography as a career. Instead, he chose both, and found ways to fold photography into his Combines, maintained a practice of photographing friends and family, documented the evolution of artworks and occasionally dramatized them by inserting himself into the picture frame. As Walter Hopps wrote, "The use of photography has long been an essential device for Rauschenberg's melding of imagery... [and] a vital means for Rauschenberg's aesthetic investigations of how humans perceive, select and combine visual information. Without photography, much of Rauschenberg's oeuvre would scarcely exist." The artist himself affirmed, "I've never stopped being a photographer." This volume gathers and surveys for the first time Rauschenberg's numerous uses of photography. This publication includes portraits of friends such as Cy Twombly, Jasper Johns, Merce Cunningham and John Cage, studio shots, photographs used in the Combines and Silkscreen paintings, photographs of lost artworks and works in process. This allows us to re-imagine almost the entirety of the artist's output in light of his always inventive uses of photography, while also supplying previously unseen glimpses into his social milieu of the 1950s and early 60s.

Painter, sculptor, printmaker and photographer Robert Rauschenberg (1925-2008) provided a crucial bridge between Abstract Expressionism and Pop art. After studying at Black Mountain College under Josef Albers, Rauschenberg moved to New York where he formed close allegiances with Jasper Johns and Cy Twombly, began his groundbreaking Combines, collaborated with the Merce Cunningham Dance Company and co-launched the non-profit Experiments in Art and Technology. Considered one of the most innovative artists of his era, he died in 2008.

Picture of Prom [With DVD]

Publisher's Description

The high school prom is an American tradition, a rite of passage, and one of the most important rituals of youth in this country. The internationally recognized documentary photographer Mary Ellen Mark took on the extraordinary challenge of working with the Polaroid 20x24 Land camera to produce this fascinating look at dozens of young people from a diverse range of backgrounds on this memorable night in their lives.

Traveling across the United States to complete the project from 2006 to 2009, Mark photographed prom-goers at thirteen schools from New York City to Charlottesville, Virginia, to Houston to Los Angeles. Mark’s husband, the filmmaker Martin Bell, collaborated with her on the project to produce and direct a film, also called Prom, featuring interviews with the students about their lives, dreams, and hopes for the future. A DVD of the film is packaged with the book.

The 127 large-format photographs are reproduced in rich detail, and quotations from the student interviews punctuate the book. Some of the students’ statements are comical, while others are deeply touching. The result is a captivating and revealing document of American youth at the beginning of the twenty-first century.

Picture of Cecil Beaton: Portraits and Profiles

Publisher's Description

This beautiful collection of fabulous photographs and incisive pen portraits captures the world of Cecil Beaton, one of the most celebrated portrait photographers of the twentieth century.

Cecil Beaton: Portraits and Profiles combines Beaton’s photographic and pen portraits. Beaton’s portraits offer insight, beauty, witty observations and a fascinating glimpse into his world. His images often flattered but his diaries and journals didn’t necessarily follow suit and he was described by Jean Cocteau as ‘Malice in Wonderland’.

Included are stars of music, fashion, society, stage and screen. From Mick Jagger and Andy Warhol, Coco Chanel and Princess Grace through to Greta Garbo, Elizabeth Taylor and Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali.

Of Audrey Hepburn, Beaton said ‘she is like a portrait by Modigliani where the various distortions are not only interesting in themselves but make a completely satisfying composite’.

Marilyn Monroe ‘romps, she squeals with delight, she leaps on the sofa. It is an artless, impromptu, high-spirited, infectiously gay performance. It will probably end in tears’.

Marlon Brando was ‘pallid as a mushroom, smooth-skinned and scarred, with curved feminine lips and silky hair, he seems as unhealthy as a lame duck. Yet his ram-like profile has the harsh strength of the gutter’

Cecil Beaton’s life spanned many worlds and these are captured here through his fabulous photographs and incisive observation.

Picture of Camera in Love

Publisher's Description

This beautifully illustrated monograph accompanies a full retrospective on the acclaimed Dutch photographer and filmmaker Ed van der Elsken.

Known for his unconventional technique and gritty, evocative images of people and places, Ed van der Elsken was a self-taught photographer whose work documented his own life and travels. This book offers a definitive overview of van der Elsken’s entire oeuvre, including his groundbreaking photo novel, “Love on the Left Bank” and his paean to 1950s Amsterdam, “Once Upon a Time”. On display at Amsterdam’s famed Stedelijk Museum, the exhibition at the center of this book focuses on the museum’s extensive collection of van der Elsken’s prints, and on the renowned installations he mounted there during his lifetime. Essays reveal the photographer’s early influences, including Weegee, Henri Cartier-Bresson, and Robert Capa, while also showing how his confident, unorthodox, and self-expressionist style paved the way for late 20th-century photographers, including Larry Clark, Nan Goldin, and Wolfgang Tillmans.

Picture of Nigel Henderson's Streets

Publisher's Description

‘Henderson knew how to turn a street into his own theatre. He understood the simple strength of documenting the streets of London, with their players, dramas and characters. This beautiful book really brings his photographs to life.’ Martin Parr

An evocative view of the post-war East End including stunning photography from the Tate Archive, much of which has never been published before.

In 1943, recovering from the trauma of his experiences as a pilot in the Second World War, artist Nigel Henderson (1917– 85) began experimenting with photography. While living in Bethnal Green, east London, he created an extraordinary archive of photography documenting life in the area between 1949 and 1953. This book showcases 150 of these newly digitised photographs which capture the heart of working- class life. From hop- scotching children to a funeral cortège, Henderson’s unique view of the streets documents the resilience and character of the local people, and a way of life that would soon disappear, as Britain moved into the 1960s.

Picture of Berlin Noir

Publisher's Description

In his new book Berlin Noir, Miron Zownir documents the timeless urban melancholy and the wild life of Berlin in all its facets thanks to urban landscapes and portraits. At the same time, the publication is a retrospective of Zownir's photographs, which were created between 1978 and 2016.

In 1978, Berlin was more than ever the mecca of nonconformists and artists. An urban oasis of the unsuitable, which promised unrestricted development. A city that has always hovered over the magic of transformation, then as now. Zownir's works from West Berlin, which has been littered with death, drastically documents the rebellious world pain of the punks, the social lack of perspective of dropouts, drug addicts, casual workers or the homeless. His recent works, however, show examples of the "Anything goes" in the Berlin clubs, the celebrated body cult of the Love Parade or commercial sex events, which in turn testify to a seemingly boundless freedom. But here, too, the gloomy abstraction of the black and white breaks the surface and reveals the rushing escape into pleasure and pain, solitude in the mass, a depressing premonition of the "morning after". One thing, however, seems to have remained the same: Berlin is still the longing destination for freaks and slender birds of paradise from all over the world. From the very beginning Zownir gave this extraordinary human being and their "otherness" his attention. Also a number of Berlin originals such as Bruno S., the thickest whore of Germany, Molly Luft, Ben Becker or Iris Berben find their appearance in BERLIN NOIR. His portraits do not remain silent. They are relentlessly expressive and emotional and create a force field in which the individuals become visible with their cultivated passions, in everyday situations, exceptional circumstances or even at the abyss.

Picture of People in Cars

Publisher's Description

Mike Mandel grew up in the San Fernando Valley, and as an kid in the 1950s could walk just about everywhere he needed to go: to school, or later down the street to the open field to collect rocks or catch lizards. All of his friends lived on his block, so he didn’t think too much about the time he spent in cars. But by the time he reached twenty in 1970, he realised how large a role the car would play in his life, and so began to photograph the inhabitants of 1970s California in their cars.

"On a late afternoon with the light low in the west I’d regularly find my spot on the corner of Victory Blvd. and Coldwater Canyon Ave. in Van Nuys (ironically, so close to home I could easily walk there). It was a busy intersection with a wealth of cars pulling my way to make a right turn. I was using a 28mm wide angle lens on my 35mm camera, which meant that I had to get in pretty close to the window to get my shot, and when I did there would inevitably be a reaction: surprise, amusement, and on some few occasions, annoyance."

"In contrast to how this project might play out today, it seemed then that people enjoyed being recognised by the camera and readily participated in the playfulness of the moment. It was warm outside, the car windows were open. It was the window that framed and instilled these portraits with the language of the automobile environment." - Mike Mandel

Picture of Das Auge der Liebe (The Eye of Love)

Publisher's Description

First published in 1954, Das Auge der Liebe (The Eye of Love) by the Swiss photographer René Groebli is a small book featuring images that were made during the honeymoon with his wife Rita in France.

In Groebli's own words: "I tried to convey the typical atmosphere of French hotel rooms. There were so many impressions: the poor-looking furniture in a cheap hotel, the word 'Amors' embroidered on the curtains. And I was in love with the girl, the girl who was my wife. I think a series of photographs should be compared with a novel or even a poem rather than a painting: let us tell something!"

This poem in black and white is now ready for another closeup. Sturm & Drang is proud to present this extended re-edition of "Das Auge der Liebe" with five additional images chosen by the photographer.

Das Auge der Liebe from René Groebli is presented as a limited edition hardcover book. This First Edition of this reprint with 30 plates is limited to 1000 numbered copies.

New extended re-edition of the original 1954 book without glassine wrapped cover.

Picture of Extra! Weegee

No other photographer has caught the sensations, scandals and catastrophes of the 1930s and 1940s in New York City with his camera as captivatingly as Weegee. He was always directly on the spot when it happened and documented the events and the onlookers. All the works come from the N.E.A. agency archive, which was only rediscovered in 2012; most of the vintage prints are being published for the very first time in this volume.

Weegee (1899–1968) was the first photographer to receive official permission in 1938 to listen in live to the New York police radio. From then onwards he sometimes even arrived at the trouble spot before the police and took countless photographs. From the hardened police officer to the loud-mouthed crook; from the midnight boozer to the dancing jazz musician; from a dramatic conflagration to the celebrations at the end of the Second World War: Weegee immortalised all these moments in unforgettable pictures. The volume also shows a hitherto unknown side of the famous photographer – happy people enjoying themselves. The works are complemented by the exciting story of the rediscovery of the archive, which was missing for decades.

Picture of Peter Hujar: Speed of Life

Publisher's Description

Peter Hujar was a leading figure of the downtown New York scene of the 1970s and ’80s. He is most well-known for his portraits of New York City’s artists, musicians, writers, and performers, which feature characters such as Susan Sontag, William S. Burroughs, David Wojnarowicz, and Andy Warhol, and was admired for his completely uncompromising attitude toward work and life. Hujar was a consummate technician, and his portraits of people, animals, and landscapes, with their exquisite black-and-white tonalities, were extremely influential. Underappreciated during his lifetime, Hujar is now a revered icon of the lost downtown art scene, and his photographs are held in permanent collections around the world. Over 160 photographs are gathered in Peter Hujar: Speed of Life. Published alongside a major touring exhibition, this collection presents Hujar’s famous portraiture as well as his lesser-known projects. Accompanied by texts by Joel Smith, Philip Gefter and Steve Turtell, this survey provides a thorough history of Hujar’s life and artistic practice.

Picture of In My Room

Publisher's Description

Fed by thrilling recent discoveries from Saul Leiter’s vast archive, In My Room provides an in-depth study of the nude, through intimate photographs of the women Leiter knew. Showing deeply personal interior spaces, often illuminated by the lush natural light of the artist’s studio in New York City’s East Village, these black-and-white images reveal the unique collaboration between Leiter and his subjects.

In the 1970s, Leiter planned to make a book of his nudes, but never realized the project in his lifetime. Now we are granted a first-time look at this body of work, which Leiter began on his arrival in New York in 1946 and chipped away at over the next two decades. Leiter, who was also a painter, incorporates abstract elements into these photographs and often shows the influence of his favorite artists, including Bonnard, Vuillard and Matisse.

The prolific Leiter, who painted and took pictures fervently up to his death, worked in relative obscurity well into his eighties. Leiter preferred solitude in life, and resisted any type of explanation or analysis of his work. With In My Room, Leiter ushers viewers into his private world while retaining his strong sense of mystery.

This stunning limited edition of 50 copies includes a print numbered and signed by Martin Parr. The image is entitled Gourock Lido, 2004 , and features the Gourock Outdoor Pool, which is a salt water public lido in Gourock, Renfrewshire, Scotland. It is the oldest heated swimming pool in Scotland. Ian Galt, the swimmer in the print of Gourock lido says about Martin Parr’s photograph: “It must have been a particularly wild night – there’d obviously just been a rainstorm. The colours work beautifully – that grey against that aquamarine – and the photograph captures something of our Scottish eccentricity: the storm clouds and the rain, and the eccentric local who decided to go swimming when no one else would.”

For over 25 years Martin Parr has been taking photographs in Scotland. From the streets of Glasgow, to an island agricultural show in Orkney, Parr has built a huge archive of photographs. This body of work is Parr’s largest archive that has remained unpublished and weaves together some of the expected visual iconography of Scotland such as highland games and stunning landscapes, but all given the Parr twist that makes the expected look so unfamiliar.
