Picture of Gap in the Hedge (Special Edition)

Publisher's Description

Built in 1928, ’Bwlch-y-Clawdd’ (Gap in the Hedge) is a mountain pass (450m) that connects the Rhondda Valley - In South Wales - to the town where I was born and still live, Bridgend. It is also connected to the Afan Valley via the A4107, which leads through to the coastline and industrial town of Port Talbot. The Bwlch road itself is the A4061, which stretches approximately 25 miles.

Not only did the pass offer a lifeline to the isolated valleys, and present greater job opportunities for the local people but it also provided an essential shortcut for valley based industry; predominantly coal related. My parents used the pass themselves to make their own move to Bridgend in 1966; starting their own business there shortly after.

Loosely based around nostalgia, ‘Gap in the Hedge’ reflects on a journey I used to make with my Mother to visit relatives in the Rhondda Valley, every Saturday when I was a small boy. It was my first taste of a road trip and I can recall almost every inch of the journey. I’d sit there in the front seat of my Mother’s little red car utterly absorbed and mesmerised by the forests, terraced houses and falling rock warning signs. The journey seemed to take forever, but we were only ever around 30 minutes from home.

This series not only attempts to document the beauty of this iconic piece of South Wales landscape, but also explores the relationship that the people - whether locals, tourists or workers - have with the landscape and environment. And ultimately, what lies ahead for this part of South Wales following Brexit and the abolition of EU funding. The immediate villages of Nantymoel and Cwmparc - both of which are former mining communities - either side of the mountain, are incorporated into the project, as the pair both sit in the shadow of ‘The Bwlch’.

Picture of Stanley Kubrick Photographs, Through a Different Lens

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

Publisher's Description

Before becoming the critically acclaimed filmmaker responsible for such iconic films as Dr. Strangelove and The Shining, Stanley Kubrick spent five years as a photographer for Look magazine. The Bronx native joined the staff in 1945, when he was only 17 years old, and shot humanist slice-of-life features that celebrate and expose New York City and its inhabitants.

Through a Different Lens reveals the keen and evocative vision of a burgeoning creative genius in a range of feature stories and images, from everyday folk at the laundromat to a day in the life of a debutant, from a trip to the circus to Columbia University. Featuring around 300 images, many previously unseen, as well as rare Look magazine tear sheets, this release coincides with a major show at the Museum of the City of New York and includes an introduction by noted photography critic Luc Sante.

These still photographs attest to Kubrick’s innate talent for compelling storytelling, and serve as clear indicators of how this genius would soon transition to making some of the greatest movies of all time.

Picture of Red Utopia

Publisher's Description

Red Utopia is a non-propagandistic search for what is left of communism, 100 years after the Russian Revolution. The photographs show interiors of party offices and their iconography, as well as environmental portraits of party officials and activists: people who, unlike their colleagues in communist dictatorships, chose for membership of such a party out of a sense of conviction and free choice against the prevailing neoliberal trend. Red Utopia focuses on five “non-communist” countries where this ideology still plays a role of some (and sometimes remarkable) importance: India, Italy, Nepal, Portugal, and Russia.

Long before the Russian Revolution of 1917, communism was a source of inspiration for idealists and revolutionaries who sought a fairer society. The struggle between communism and capitalism was one of the main themes in recent history, certainly between 1917 and 1989.

The gritty experiences of real socialism, the fall of the Berlin Wall and the triumph of neoliberalism seemed to deliver the final blow to the communist ideology. Many communist parties were disbanded after 1989 or slowly bled dry. While the gap between rich and poor widened in many countries from the 80s on, the Free Market seemed to have become the only remaining ideology.

Picture of Glasgow 1969

Publisher's Description

It’s late afternoon in the summer of 1969. We are in the outskirts of Glasgow and Gabriele Basilico is holding a Nikon F, shooting a single roll of film. He is in a state of grace, although nobody might then have known that this roll was to mark Basilico’s baptism as a photographer. He is struck by the Scottish kids, the terrains vagues, the 19th-century industrial archaeology. At the time he was just an architecture student interested in the British post-war new towns, in the social photography of Bill Brandt, but he had not yet shown a vocation for photography of his own. The volume, after Iran 1970 and Marocco 1971, completes the “Basilico before Basilico” trilogy and is accompanied by the texts of Umberto Fiori and Pippo Ciorra, and a testimony from Giovanna Calvenzi.

Picture of No Ruined Stone

Publisher's Description

“No Ruined Stone” by Scottish photographer Paul Duke offers a timely and far-reaching insight into a fractured and deprived housing estate in Edinburgh. Returning to Muirhouse — the backdrop to Irvine Welsh’s novel “Trainspotting“ — Duke’s documentary and poetical photographs lead us through the estate he grew up in. Although circumspect questions of social inequity are raised in the book the underlying narrative is about fighting spirit, dignity and hope of the residents living there today.

Paul Duke was born and educated in Edinburgh. He gained a Master of Arts degree with distinction from the Royal College of Art in 1989. As well as exhibiting in the Scottish National Portrait Gallery he has shown in the Scottish Parliament and was included in the National Galleries of Scotland landmark exhibition “Light from the Dark Room” in 1995. “No Ruined Stone” is his second publication after “At Sea”, published in 2013. The text is written by Martin Barnes, senior curator of photography, Victoria & Albert Museum, London.

Picture of Annie Leibovitz: The Early Years, 1970–1983

Publisher's Description

The Early Years, 1970–1983 returns to Leibovitz’s origins. It begins with a moment of artistic revelation: the spontaneous shot that made Leibovitz think she could transition from painting to photography as her area of study at the San Francisco Art Institute. The meticulously and personally curated collection, including contact sheets and Polaroids, provides a vivid document both of Leibovitz’s development as a young artist and of a pivotal era.

Leibovitz’s reportage-like photo stories for Rolling Stone, which she began working for when she was still a student, record such heady political, cultural, and counter-cultural developments as the Vietnam War protests, the launch of Apollo 17, the presidential campaign of 1972, Richard Nixon’s resignation in 1974, and the Rolling Stones on tour in 1975. Then, as now, Leibovitz won the trust of the prominent and famous, and the book’s pages are animated by many familiar faces, among them Muhammad Ali, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ken Kesey, Patti Smith, Bruce Springsteen, Joan Didion, and Debbie Harry, as well as John Lennon and Yoko Ono, captured in their now iconic embrace just hours before Lennon was assassinated.

Throughout the book, the portraits and reportage are linked to images of cars, driving, and even a series on California highway patrolmen. In many ways, it’s a celebration of life on the road—the frenetic rhythms, the chance encounters, the meditative opportunities. And with its rich archival aspects, it is also a tribute to an earlier time and a young photographer enmeshed in a culture that was itself in transition.

Picture of Diane Arbus: A box of ten photographs

Publisher's Description

In May 1971, Artforum, bastion of late modernism, featured the work of a photographer for the very first time. On its cover and in a six-page spread, it published selections from Diane Arbus's portfolio, A box of ten photographs. In the words of the magazine’s editor and photography skeptic, Philip Leider, “The portfolio changed everything . . . one could no longer deny [photography’s] status as art.” At the time of Arbus’s death, two months later, only four of the intended edition of fifty had been sold. Two had been purchased from Arbus by Richard Avedon (the first for himself, the second as a gift for his friend Mike Nichols); another was purchased by Jasper Johns; and a fourth by Bea Feitler, art director at Harper’s Bazaar. Arbus signed the prints in all four sets; each print was accompanied by an interleaving vellum slip-sheet inscribed with an extended caption. For Feitler, Arbus added an eleventh photograph, A woman with her baby monkey, N.J., 1971.

Acquired by the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, D.C., in 1986—and the only one of the four completed and sold by Arbus that is publicly held—that portfolio is the subject of an exhibition on view at the museum from April through September 2018. This exceptional book replicates the nature of Diane Arbus’s original and now legendary object. Smithsonian curator John P. Jacob, who has unearthed a trove of new information in preparing the book and exhibition, weaves a fascinating tale of the creation, production, and continuing repercussions of this seminal work.

Picture of she dances on Jackson (Signed)

Publisher's Description

The reprint of this hugely successful 2013 book coincides with a retrospective of the work of Vanessa Winship at the Barbican Art Gallery in London from June to September 2018.

In 2011 Vanessa Winship was the recipient of the Henri Cartier Bresson Award which funds an artist to pursue a new photographic project. For over a year Winship travelled across the United States, from California to Virginia, New Mexico to Montana, in pursuit of the fabled ‘American dream’. she dances on Jackson presents a conversation, a lyrical and lilting interaction between landscape and portrait exploring the vastness of the United States and attempting to understand the link between a territory and its inhabitants. For Winship this relationship is inextricable; places accrue particular meanings according to the people she meets, what she sees, and by what's happening to her personally. Each human encounter, sound and smell adds extra dimensions to her work and the resulting photographs.

she dances on Jackson marks a progression. Stylistically similar to her previous work using black and white film and a large format camera, Winship’s portraits remain arresting and unnerving but this body of work reveals her to also be a skilled landscape photographer. For Winship photography is a process of literacy, a path by which she understands life. Her intimate approach enables the reader to glimpse the world as she sees it, if only for a moment.

"This is an exquisite book in every way. The platinum prints are out of this world!" (Customer review)


Publisher's Description

Nazraeli Press is pleased to present the publication of Jeffrey Conley's second monograph, Reverence. Beautifully printed in duotone on our special matt Japanese art paper, this first edition is limited to 750 numbered and slipcased copies. Jeffrey Conley crafts each of his prints by utilizing two traditional darkroom methods, gelatin silver and platinum/palladium printing processes. As both the artist and the printer, Conley’s first-hand technique creates a compendium of work that is as wide-ranging as it is intricate and intimate. The artist has, moreover, perfected the balance between simplicity and complexity, nuanced and bold. 

Conley received his BFA in Photographic Studies at Rochester Institute of Technology. He then moved to Yosemite National Park where he taught at the Ansel Adams Gallery and spent years honing his craft. Jeffrey Conley has since been exhibited worldwide. His first book, Winter, was published by Nazraeli Press in 2011 to wide acclaim and has since sold out.

“For as long as I can remember I have felt most at peace outdoors. Nature has always been my refuge and sanctuary. I find the natural world to be endlessly wondrous in its range of character and texture, from moments of delicate intimacy and subtlety to the massively expansive and powerful. Nature is in constant change, and photography is particularly well suited to capture and amplify the swirling fluidity and the wonderfully serendipitous moments born of the ephemeral. Photographing nature is a very specific kind of exercise in mindfulness; to be out in nature with senses responsive, keenly aware of circumstances and completely receptive, yielding to the present.  The photographs in this exhibition represent some of my observations while investigating nature over these last several years; moments that represent my awe, wonder, and affinity towards our Earth.” —Jeffrey Conley

Picture of Sirens

Publisher's Description

Rachael Talibart's photographs express her love of all things coastal. Working very much in the tradition of the 'sublime' in art, while also deliberately eschewing location-based landscape photography, Rachael seeks in her stark yet intimate compositions to convey the awe and exhilaration of being confronted by the ocean in its most tempestuous moods. This is nowhere more evident than in the photographs from her critically acclaimed Sirens series, monstrous waves named after mythological beings. Although these strange, sometimes frightening, wave-forms were all captured during the storms that pounded the south coast in 2016 and 2017, the images are intended to transcend time and space, to expand our experience of the ocean and make us see the natural world in a new light.

Picture of They Were My Landscape

Publisher's Description

Oscillating between the banal and the profound, They Were My Landscape is a collection of black and white photographs that echo the fragility of human life. Phoebe Kiely devotes her lens to the overlooked nooks, spoiled surfaces and daily detritus of urban environments to build a serendipitous landscape of an anonymous place. As we drift through her mutable world of fleeting shadows and scintillating reflections, we witness seductive moments in prosaic spectacles: refracted light cast on a concrete corner, shimmering foil in a shop window, the fractal patterns of leafless trees, or the mottled residue of bubbles on a glass façade. And now and then, glimpses of people – homeless, commuting, or standing unnervingly still – enter the book’s elusive sequence. For Kiely, there is no underlying rule or unswerving direction: life is as chaotic as it is mundane, as disruptive as it is calm. If her book reflects a universal experience, it is one that – as the slanting views of gritty tower blocks reveal – is seen through the singular view and local environs of this remarkable young British photographer.

Picture of The Camera: Essence and Apparatus

Publisher's Description

Victor Burgin is one of the most influential artists and writers working today. He came to prominence as a key figure in the Conceptual Art of the late 1960s. After turning to photography in his artistic practice he produced a series of groundbreaking theoretical essays that drew on semiotics, psychoanalysis and feminism in order to think through the ideological role of photographs in the production of beliefs and values, and in the understanding of memory, history, subjectivity and space.

In the last decade or so, Burgin has worked with computer-generated imagery and the virtual camera. But rather than accepting a radical divide between so-called ‘analogue’ and ‘digital’ realms, Burgin has emphasised the continuity of the virtual camera, the various physical cameras in use today, and the painted images of Quattrocento painting – all of which have their essence in the perspectival system of representation. Further to this, Burgin argues that no image is merely an optical experience – all images are essentially psychological events and thus virtual also. Inseparable from language, they form the psychical spaces of fantasy and projection, recognition and misrecognition. Whether on pages, walls or screens, in galleries or online, single views, or swarms of picture fragments, images are the making and unmaking of our sense of self, and the world around us.

This collection brings together for the first time Victor Burgin’s writings related specifically to the camera, following the shifts and nuances in his thinking over nearly five decades. Moreover, it allows us to chart the evolution of what the camera was and is, and how its affects are to be understood.

Picture of The Map and The Territory

Publisher's Description

Through the course of the 1970s and 1980s, Luigi Ghirri pursued his extraordinary project, open-ended and mercurial, marked by empathy for the changing everyday spaces of his time. Over the course of his short career, Ghirri would produce a vast body of photographs without parallel in the Europe of his time and numerous writings which would have an indelible impact on the history of photography.

This extensive book compiled by the renowned British curator James Lingwood accompanies a touring exhibition to three major museum venues across Europe and focuses on the first decade of Ghirri’s work, defined by his 1979 exhibition in Parma. Vera Fotografia was grouped into fourteen different narrative sequences, each of which is represented in this volume: Fotografie del periodo iniziale (1970), Kodachrome (1970-78), Colazione sull’erba (1972-74), Catalogo (1970-79), Km 0.250 (1973), Diaframma 11, 1/125, luce naturale (1970-79), Atlante, (1973), Italia Ailati (1971-79), Il paese del balocchi (1972-79), Vedute (1970-79), Infinito (1974), In Scala (1976-79), Still Life (1975-79).

The focus of the project is on Ghirri’s quietly compelling project to create a new kind of geography, located in his fascination with representations of the world, in the form of reproductions, pictures, posters, models and maps. The mediation of experience through images in an Italy poised between the old and the new was, for Ghirri, an inexhaustible terrain to survey – “a great adventure into the world of thinking and looking, a wonderful magic toy that miraculously manages to combine our adult awareness and the fairy tale world of children…a never-ending journey through great and small, through variations and the realm of illusions and appearances, a labyrinthine specular place of multitudes and simulation."

Picture of Posturing

Publisher's Description

Not since the early 2000s has a group of fashion photographers become a movement. Now, 21 contemporary fashion photographers have been brought together for Posturing, the book about a new movement. Featuring editorial work, it highlights how they use the body and its position to tell new stories in new ways. Through 58 photographs, as well as interviews with photographers, stylists, set designers and commissioning editors, Posturing explores the ways that the movement is changing how fashion is presented.

Edited by Holly Hay and Shonagh Marshall, Posturing celebrates aesthetic oddness, and in the process questions the essential function and meaning of a fashion image. It is a style of photography that rejects the hyper-sexualised body and celebrity-driven, glamour-obsessed vision of fashion that in the 2000s glorified naked consumerism. One that is changing traditional ideas of clothing, casting and images, as well as recontextualising what the body means to fashion, and what fashion can mean to the body. Posturing is a record of that change and this new movement, capturing the voices and visions of those most integral to creating it.

Picture of God's Allies

Publisher's Description

Crows, with their black plumage, their sparkling, bright eyes, and dark, shimmering beaks, belong to the night and to witches, heralds of doom and disaster. But their playful and unpredictable behaviour has also made them widely symbolic. In ancient times, they were even worshipped. The god Odin was accompanied by two ravens, representing “memory” and “thought”. The concept of the crow as a symbol of the two principle faculties of humans is irresistible. You are never alone when crows are present. Photographer Hans Bol presents a tribute to the crow family, from the smallest jackdaws to the larger rooks and ravens, illustrating a fascination with these mysterious birds.
