Picture of Harry Benson: Persons of Interest

Publisher's Description

With unique access to the most intriguing and enduring legends of our time, Harry Benson: Persons of Interest is a compelling masterpiece of photojournalism and portraiture.

Celebrating Benson’s 60+ year career and featuring photographs spanning his early years on London’s Fleet Street to his arrival in New York in 1964 with the Beatles, to marching with Martin Luther King during the Civil Rights movement, to being present at RFK’s assassination, to scores of Hollywood and music and sports legends, and right up to the present as the only person who has photographed the last twelve Presidents from Eisenhower to Trump, Benson’s unparalleled magnum opus is to be published following the massive success of the Magnolia Pictures documentary film, Harry Benson: Shoot First (2016).

With decades spent deliberately being in the just the right place at just the the right time, Benson’s photographs and writings of his encounters and adventures are sure to be of broad interest to photography afficionados, history lovers, and people young and old. With subjects ranging from Queen Elizabeth to Amy Winehouse, from Frank Sinatra to Brad Pitt, from Greta Garbo to Kate Moss, from Winston Churchill to Hilary Clinton, and Donald Trump, Benson explores and delights our public fascination with his images of the lives of the rich, powerful, and famous.

In April 2017 Benson received the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Center of Photography.
Critic Leonard Maltin said it all when he wrote, “Harry Benson has been witness to the key events of the past half-century and has never failed to capture their most telling moments with his camera.”

Picture of In the Eighties  Portraits from Another Time

Publisher’s Description

‘It was the best of times it was the worst of times.’ Maligned, misunderstood and fetishized the 1980’s stands as the decade when post-modern life began in the west, and London was at the epicenter of this shift. An explosion of creativity took place against a backdrop of radical social change. London became a city of tribes. The vast youth culture categories of the preceding decades shattered into shards. It was the decade that sub-culture as a way of life reached it’s zenith before giving way to it’s inevitable scene surfing conclusion. Ridgers documented this cultural moment obsessively. Punks, post-punks, cyber-punks, gothic punks, mods, hard mods, Trojan skins, racist skins, ska, reggae, dub, early electronica, synth pop, acid house, happy hardcore, Blitz Kids, New Romantics, Hip-Hop, Rap, Electro, Break Beat, Techno, Rave – these were all sub-cultural spaces with scenes attached in London in the 1980’s. Unlike now, subcultures in the 1980’s were not casual playthings – they were a way of life for their participants. They inspired profound loyalty. They were a beautiful a doomed flowering of the hope for a better world. Derek Ridger’s exquisite street portrait photography has captured this creative decade beautifully.

Publisher’s Description

What makes Albert Watson one of the world’s most revered photographers, hailed by peers, critics, and collectors alike? Is it his unparalleled portfolio of celebrity portraits? Breathtaking landscapes? Sensual nudes, still lifes, illustrious fashion shoots?

KAOS presents a kaleidoscopic overview of Watson’s career to date and the dazzling array of subjects, objects, people, and places he has encountered along the way. A skillfully curated survey of a uniquely diverse, dynamic portfolio, it spans nearly half a century of photography to encounter stars, statesmen, women, and strangers; bound through neon-blazing cities; find figures poised, gymnastic, or shimmering with nude eroticism; roam the bright lights and the backstreets; soak up extravagant sunsets; enter the controlled studio environment; and breathe in the elemental wilds of the photographer’s native Scotland.

From Watson’s breakthrough portrait of Alfred Hitchcock for the Christmas 1973 edition of Harper’s Bazaar to a 2016 shot of Kanye West, each photograph reverberates with tightly coiled power, tension, and poetry. Whether it’s a portrait of a Las Vegas dominatrix, Elvis’s gold suit, a chimpanzee, or a street scene in China, Watson excels in capturing the surface seamlessly and probing its myriad depths. Along the way, his celebrity portraiture, including the likes of David Bowie, Jay Z, Mick Jagger, Michael Jackson, Jack Nicholson, Steve Jobs, and Andy Warhol, shows a particular interest in the private person behind the iconic façade.

This remarkable collection is accompanied by an essay from the recently retired head of photographs at Christie’s, Philippe Garner, and extensive quotes from Watson, as well as dozens of previously unpublished Polaroids, culled from Watson’s personal archives. The result is a defining document of the “photographer’s photographer,” iridescent in its graphic, often cinematic allure, and irresistible in its eclectic glory.

Picture of Preston Bus Station

Publisher's Description

It was while living in Preston in 2010 that the city’s imposing Brutalist bus station, built by Ove Arup and Partners in 1969, first caught Hawkesworth’s eye. “I did a project with Adam Murray, an ex-tutor of mine, where we spent the weekend at the bus station and produced a little newspaper filled with portraits of the teenagers we saw there”.  A few years later when Hawkesworth heard of plans to demolish the iconic building he determined to "move back to Preston for a month and spend every day in the bus station taking photographs. The station is one big loop, and I just walked around it all day, every day, just waiting for people to pop out at me. I tried not to think about it any more than that, it was just whoever would catch my eye in a particular moment. It was a centre for Megabus so if a bus comes from up North, it goes through Preston to go South, so there was always an influx of really interesting people coming through the station. When I found someone, I’d ask to take their portrait and that was it. To a certain extent, I was trying to be spontaneous about it; whether it was an old man, a kid with a funny haircut or interesting shoes – I just let anything be photographed.”

After seven years since Hawkesworth began the project his first monograph Preston Bus Station will be published this fall by Dashwood Books while he prepares for a major exhibition "Landscape with Tree, 14 rooms by Jamie Hawkesworth" at Huis Marseille, Museum of Photography in Amsterdam.

In the year 2000, Spencer was commissioned by Graham Rounthwaite at British music, fashion and culture magazine The Face to create a series focusing on youth clubs across the United Kingdom. From Cornwall to Lancashire, Spencer photographed teens goers as they drank, danced and fell in and out of love and lust.

“Today we stay younger longer and become grown up sooner. The successes of making any sort of story around youth is to recognise that we’ve all been there at sometime in our lives. Being a Teenager is life a concentrated moment of the human condition - all of the successes and pitfalls all being played out in one messy drama.” - Ewen Spence

Picture of Rene Magritte: The Revealing Image

Publisher's Description

In this richly illustrated book, Xavier Canonne, director of the Museum of Photography in Charleroi, dives into René Magritte’s photo and film archive, revealing a lesser-known side of the surrealist master. Discovered in the 1970s, more than 10 years after the artist’s death, this collection gives us access to a family album, an informal Magritte, from his childhood to the last years of his life. We see Magritte with his parents and brothers, as a newly married man with his wife Georgette, and with his contemporaries in the Brussels Surrealist group. Spontaneous snapshots are complemented by posed scenes, including improvised tableaus with his fellow artists, parodies of famous movies consciously arranged with Georgette, portraits of Magritte at his easel at home, and staged photographs as models for his paintings. Images where the artist and his friends hide their faces or turn away from the camera particularly resonate with his paintings and his investigation of the ‘hidden visible’. While other Surrealists such as Man Ray and Raoul Ubac made photography an essential part of their work, Magritte remained a true painter. Yet this book demonstrates that his photographs and films are so pervaded with his spirit that they are inseparable from his oeuvre of paintings. Far from being merely entertaining occasional images, they shed a familiar light on the painter’s thought and evidence the same investigation of the mysteries of the world.

Publisher's Description

Covering three decades of the artist’s provocative yet intimate large-scale color images capturing the domestic life and private moments of the American and European elite—her family and friends—this book will appeal to contemporary-art lovers, photography book collectors, and anyone with an interest in modern culture.

Internationally acclaimed American artist Tina Barney burst on the scene in the early 1980s with her provocative yet intimate photographs capturing the domestic lives and social rituals of the elite. In choosing color over black and white and producing large-format prints, she broke the tradition of established fine-art photography at the time. Her unstintingly honest portrayal of her subjects, many of whom are family and friends, remains completely original.

Straddling the line between candid and choreographed photography, between engagement and detachment, she captures her subjects in a range of rarefied settings, both private and public. Her iconic tableaux suggest rich narratives or, as she has written, the “synchronization of psychological, emotional, and sociological plots that bind a family together.” Long awaited, this lavish survey is the most definitive book to date on Barney’s work.

Picture of You Get Me? (Signed)

Publisher's Description

Photographed over a nine-year period, You Get Me? by British artist Mahtab Hussain is a book centred on the experiences of young working-class South Asian Muslim men in contemporary Britain. Largely a book of portraits, it also documents the local environments of these men, picking up on manifest signs of multi-cultural identity.

The photographs in You Get Me? are interspersed with evocative extracts from Hussain’s numerous conversations with Muslim men, principally in London, Nottingham and Birmingham. Bringing issues of identity, masculinity, displacement and belonging to the fore, the book addresses concrete experiences of these men against a backdrop of derogatory media representations. Confronting the politics surrounding immigration and identity in Britain, Hussain at once celebrates the implicit agency of his photographic subjects, while recognising their struggle to determine a sense of self.

Picture of The Art of the Feminine

Publisher's Description

Is there such a thing as a feminine gaze? How can such a seemingly neutral medium as photography address the incredibly nuanced complexities of gender portrayal? Spanning the Victorian, modern and postmodern eras, the works of Julia Margaret Cameron, Florence Henri and Francesca Woodman provide answers to these questions.

Despite their differing formal approaches, their portraiture evinces a common stance that affords the viewer a journey through the photographic representation of femininity.

The women in their photographs demand to be acknowledged, making photography the space in which identity may be put to the test, where objectification may be escaped and subverted. This book provides a fascinating potted history of the depiction of women by women, across three epochs.

Picture of Milky Way

Publisher's Description

Milky Way is a series of pictures of the author’s (b. 1974, French) wife and child during breastfeeding. The aesthetic aspect is determined by the feeding behaviour which imposes its geometry on bodies and on space they occupy. These images contain familiar echoes of classic icons but adorn themselves with modern elements. From these everyday moments, seized with harshness, without bitterness, emerges the force of exchanges between two beings and the milk becomes, as in the Greek legend of the Milky Way, the vector of a world under construction.

Picture of Paul Outerbridge

Publisher's Description

Whether in his sumptuous images for advertising or his soft-hued nudes, Paul Outerbridge (1896–1958) was an alchemist of desire. Color was integral to his aesthetic allure, embracing the complex tri-color-carbro process to create a seductive surface of texture and tone. His quest was for “artificial paradises”—a perfection of form, with a surreal edge.

This concise monograph introduces Outerbridge’s unique aesthetic and its commercial and artistic trajectory, from his professional peak as New York’s highest-paid commercial photographer through to his retreat to Hollywood in the 1940s after a scandal over his erotic photography. With key examples from his oeuvre, the book explores Outerbridge’s innovative style through Cubist still life images, magazine photographs, and his controversial nudes, as well as his interaction with other avant-garde photographers, such as Alfred Stieglitz, Paul Strand, and Man Ray. Along the way, we recognize Outerbridge’s particular ability to transform everyday objects into a quasi-abstract composition and his pioneering role in championing the expressionistic, as much as commercial, potential of color photographs.

Publisher's Description

It was the summer of 2009 in Bangkok, Thailand, that Shiga photographed couples on motorbikes.

In this city Shiga exchanged glances with hundreds and thousands of people on the back seat of motorbikes. The camera seemed to be the ideal tool for getting closer to that strange feeling of receiving glances without physically connecting with them.

She continued for a week and managed to photograph around 100 couples.

Continuing to exchange glances with unknown strangers had an effect on her and she felt as though she was rediscovering the sense of wildness that resided in the depths of her heart. It was a rich experience, as if she was touching something very sensual.

How much does the eye control us?

"I was told that I cannot see.
Does the reason for this relate to a previous life that I can no longer recall?
I wanted to know the truth, so I attended university and learned about many religions around the world.
Many, many things were said about life and death, but I felt uncomfortable about all of them.
They didn’t quite match how I am."

from the text Blind Date

Born in 1980, Aichi prefecture of Japan. Since 2008, Shiga moved to Miyagi in 2008, and has been working there.  Blind Date is the first book since Shiga’s legendary  Rasen Kaigan album (2013, Akaaka) was published.

Picture of Tokyo Compression Final Cut

Publisher's Description

The fourth and final edition of the photobook classic.

Once again better, more dense, more beautiful, more oppressive than all predecessors.
With "Tokyo Compression" Michael Wolf struck a nerve. His portraits of people who are on their way in the Tokyo subway, constrained between glass, steel and fellow travelers, have won many awards and are shown in exhibitions around the globe. The first three editions of the book are sold out.
And the topic kept haunting Michael Wolf as well. Again and again he returned to Tokyo in order to immerse in the subsurface insanity. Now with "Tokyo Compression Final Cut" the fourth, completely revised edition of the classic is published, with many so far unreleased images and an entirely new "hidden track" at the end of the book.

Before Michael Wolf other artists have created subway series, among them famous names such as Bruce Davidson and Walker Evans, the concept as well as the metonymy of "Compression" however is much different. Michael Wolf is not interested in seat cushions, graffiti, interior architecture or the traveler’s relation to that. He rather discovered the subway system as suitable place in order to investigate mental state and aggregate condition of the city dwellers. Wolf leaves out all accessories, focuses just faces and figures. With his radical aesthetics he creates enormously intensive pictures that in a distressing, yes shocking manner directly aim into the portrayed people’s inner life.

With his accompanying essay TOKYO SUBWAY DREAMS Christian Schüle delivers a gloomy diagnosis to the mass loneliness in modern megacities.

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 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 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.

Publisher's Description

Award-winning photographer Harry Borden brings together powerful and moving portraits of Holocaust survivors, with captions in their own words.

'A masterpiece and deeply moving' - Alain de Botton

'A wonderful piece of work' - Lynn Barber

Over the course of five years, acclaimed photographer Harry Borden has travelled the globe photographing survivors of the Holocaust. The people featured vary in age, gender and nationality, but are all tied together by their experience and survival of one of the darkest moments in human history.

Each photograph is accompanied by a handwritten note from the sitter, ranging from poems, to memories, to hopes for the future, creating a strong sense of intimacy between sitter and reader. This intimacy is amplified by the home settings of many of the photographs, along with the photographer's use of available light at each scene. At the end of the book is a section providing more information about the person in each portrait, and about how and what they survived, together with the historical context of the events they lived through.

Thought-provoking and touching, this book conveys the dignity and humanity of each subject's character. Survivor is a unique and powerful testimony of what it is to live with memories of the Holocaust.
