Picture of Gentlemen (Signed)

Publisher's Description

Karen Knorr’s Gentlemen, published this September by STANLEY/BARKER in collaboration with Eric Franck Fine Art, takes us inside the hallowed halls of the most venerable private gentlemen’s clubs of 1980s London, and considers the patriarchal values of the English upper classes with beautifully precise photographs and texts constructed out of speeches of parliament and the news at that time.

The complete series of 26 images and texts investigate the values that ally these classes to conservative aristocratic values where primogeniture (the right by law of the rstborn son to inherit his parent’s estate, in preference to daughters) is still an issue. Until the early 1970’s a married women still needed her husband’s endorsement for any household purchases. Whilst women now have full property rights, they still remain under-represented in key positions of governance and in nancial and academic worlds. It is still a boys club in which some women are honorary members.

With equality on the agenda and calls for more to be done, the timely release of Gentlemen — the follow up to the critically acclaimed Belgravia (Published November 2015) uses humour to explore attitudes amongst the English establishment in the 1980’s. Knorr noted that despite being Prime Minister and head of the Conservative party, Margaret Thatcher as a woman was not then, nor would be now, allowed full membership at the Conservative Gentlemen’s club ‘The Carlton’. Old Etonians, like the former British Prime Minister prime minister David Cameron, have belonged to such Gentlemen’s clubs. It is in these clubs that behind the scenes influence is still used to influence politics and business today.

Picture of Kingdom of Girls

Publisher's Description

Karolin Klüppel (*1985 in Kassel) can already look back at a body of creative work that enjoys a wide range of enthusiastic reviews and awards. This extraordinary resonance is due to the elegant alternation of her photographs between documentation and composition as well as her marked sense of impressive subjects. The pictures in the Kingdom of Girls series stand out not only due to their powerful and contemplative aesthetic, they also tell a story. The girls’ faces reveal the lifeworld and culture of the Khasi, an indigenous people in the Indian state of Meghalaya with a matrilineal social system: the youngest daughter is given preference in the order of succession. When she marries, her husband moves into her family’s home, the children receive the mother’s name. Only the birth of a daughter guarantees the continuity of the clan. Between 2013 and 2015, the photographer spent a total of ten months in the Khasi village of Mawlynnong, where she captured these magical images.

A Few Points Regarding the Shanghai Shoot

Beginnings: In the past thirty years, China, Shanghai in particular, has seen great development, one of the greatest shifts in thousands of years. But one must never forget why he set out in the first place, simply because he went too far. In this large scale urban reconstruction, many things have been lost, to the point that many people have begun to ask, where did we come from? What are we doing? Where are we going? Thus, we need to use artistic methods to connect those disappeared memories of the city, to explore those meaningful tangents in this cultural rift.

Concept: I have always wanted to seek out a certain philosophical relationship between the majority and the minority. This relationship seems to figure importantly in modern Chinese history. Our photo shoot this time is split into three historical phases: the black-and-white Republican era, the red classic era and the golden contemporary era. During the black-and-white Republican era, a minority of foreigners and Chinese compradors influenced the majority through their modern lifestyle. In the red classic era, the ideals of a minority were realized through the majority, and the foundation was laid for today’s soaring growth. The golden contemporary era is one where minorities and majorities influence each other and depend on each other, realizing the Chinese dream of economic strength.

Methods: This photography project mainly employs three methods. The first is capture photography. What is capture photography? In this method, we have our actors and extras randomly play out their assigned roles in a chosen setting, and when they reach the desired effect, we order them to freeze. We then make slight adjustments in positioning for greatest effect, repeating the process several times until we are satisfied enough to take the picture. This method allows for a union between people and place, creating a vivid image rather than a dull, arranged effect. The second is the living news drama method. The “living news drama” is a dramatic form with its roots in Shanghai opera. It arose in the years of Japanese occupation, when Shanghai leftists, aware that much of their audience was illiterate, produced plays to promote the resistance against Japan. Today, we use this method to act out the stories in their various settings and to interact with audiences to effect a passage to history, creating a cultural image of Shanghai past and present. The third method is both real and virtual, akin to the regular, cursive and wild scripts of Chinese calligraphy. Global photography today always pursues super-realism and fineness, like the regular script of Chinese calligraphy. We use varying speeds and actors to create photographic images that rest somewhere between the real and virtual, much like the cursive script of calligraphy, in an expression of our pursuit of history and the memories of a city.

Picture of William Eggleston Portraits

Publisher's Description

Vivid, poetic, even mysterious, the works of the pioneering American photographer William Eggleston portray life in his home town of Memphis, Tennessee, and the people he encountered, from the 1950s to the present day. This book, which accompanies a major exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery, London, includes both well-known and unseen portraits from Eggleston’s long career, to provide a fresh perspective on one of photography’s most influential practitioners.

‘I want to make a picture that could stand on its own, regardless of what it was a picture of. I’ve never been a bit interested in the fact that this was a picture of a blues musician or a street corner or something.’ – William Eggleston

William Eggleston’s photographs are special for their eccentric, unexpected compositions, playfulness, implied narrative and, above all, his portrayals of people. Over the past half-century he has created a powerful and enduring body of work featuring friends and family, musicians, artists and others.
Eggleston frequented the 1970s Memphis club scene, developing friendships and getting to know musicians, including Ike Turner, Alex Chilton and others. His fascination with the nightclub culture resulted in the experimental video Stranded in Canton (2005), which chronicles visits to bars in Memphis, Mississippi, and New Orleans. At the same time he encountered and photographed the likes of Dennis Hopper, Eudora Welty and Walter Hopps – and for a brief moment Eggleston even entered the Warhol Factory scene, dating the Warhol protégé, Viva.

William Eggleston: Portraits accompanies the first exhibition to explore Eggleston’s pictures of people. Works included span his career from the 1950s through to his well-known portraits of the 1970s to the present day. The catalogue includes an essay, chronology and beautifully reproduced exhibition plates, as well as a revealing interview with Eggleston and his close family members, conducted in Memphis by exhibition curator Phillip Prodger.

Publisher's Description

Sanne Sannes was the ‘agent provocateur’ of the Dutch photography scene in the 1960’s. His grainy, black and white, intimate and erotic portraits of women, who he photographed in intense and ecstatic sessions, went against all the traditional rules of photography. Sannes was not afraid to experiment with photographic techniques and styles; everything was allowed to achieve the required result.

Sannes was tragically killed in a car accident just days after he turned 30, but in his short life he created one of the most impressive photographic oeuvres of the 20th century.

This monograph is the most complete overview of the work of Sanne Sannes that has been published, having been initiated by Johan ten Berg, Rob Sannes, the brother of Sannes, Gerrit Jan Wolffensperger, the former assistant of Sannes, and Roy Kahmann.

With contributions written by Willemijn van der Zwaan and Gerrit Jan Wolffensperger.

In collaboration with the Rijksmuseum and the Nederlands Fotomuseum, Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

Picture of Where the Children Sleep

Publisher's Description

One is missing his bed. Another, her doll with the dark eyes. A third is dreaming himself back to a time when his pillow was not an enemy. The war in Syria has continued for five years and more than two million children are fleeing the war, within and outside of the country borders. They have left their friends, their homes, and their beds behind. A few of these children offered to show where they sleep now, when everything that once was no longer exists.

Magnus Wennman, winner of three World Press Photo Awards and fourfold winner of Sweden’s Photographer of the Year Award, has met refugees in countless refugee camps and on their journeys through Europe. The story of when the night comes is a living narrative with no given ending. The traveling exhibition Where the children sleep is a cooperation between photographer Magnus Wennman, the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), Fotografiska (The Swedish Museum of Photography), and the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet.

Picture of Short Flashes

Publisher's Description

During her time in North East China, Oskar Barnack Newcomer award winner Wiktoria Wojciechowska photographed intrepid, rain drenched cyclists as they fleetingly passed her by during the typhoon season. Although in China Wojciechowska had found an unexpected sense of home, she also found it eternally difficult to connect with people. Influenced by the words of Polish novelist Wiesław Myśliwski, Wojciechowska set out to capture a physical reference to the human faces that sped past her, using a flash on her camera. The result is a collection of photographs that are initially exciting, vibrant and seemingly playful, but infact embody a melancholic metaphor for a wistful sense of place. The work exists as a typological document and, as Wojciechowska describes, a collection of faces for memory, building ‘a new family album to remember the people she never knew’.

'There are infinitely many of these faces I carry inside myself. Conceived in short flashes. I don’t know whose, where, or when. I know nothing about them. But they live in me. Thoughtfulness, gazes, sorrows, pallor, grimaces, bitterness - they live in me, detained like on photographies.' - Wiesław Myśliwski, A Treatise on Shelling Beans, 2006

Picture of Nudes

Publisher's Description

With Nudes René Groebli gives us a work for sensuous pleasure that has grown over half a century. In the long history of sensual art photography one is hard pressed to find anyone comparable to the Swiss photo artist. His images appear timeless and exhibit a technical perfection and expression of joy in experimentation that one usually ascribes to the avant-garde.

Sometimes Groebli's work seems more akin to painting or at least to a pictorial kind of photography. In place of blurring brush strokes or filters he uses the grain of the film itself for the visual distortion of his photographs.

Picture of End. (Signed)

Publisher's Description

Created as both installation and publication, End. is a collaborative work by Eamonn Doyle, Niall Sweeney and David Donohoe. Built around the photographs of Doyle, it also features drawing and sound by Sweeney and Donohoe. End. gives equal significance to the city and its population, their combined forces continuously shaping each other. Individual journeys of everyday life are compacted repetitively into the same streets. Dubliners wear away at the autonomy of their city, while the streets themselves become a kind of sculptural civic mental State. Dublin, its light and its people, carry out dance-like actions, swapping roles in a series of short plays. End. unfolds as a sequence of events — loops of time and place — revealing a city whose concrete is as plastic as the movement of its inhabitants.

End. is a set of 13 sections all brought together in a white leatherette slipcase, with black-embossed drawings and tip-in title sheet, wrapped in yellow cellophane.

Each section is folded to 200 x 280 mm, portrait.

Featuring 273 photographs, 20 ink drawings and a 7” vinyl sound work, these 13 Dublin “moments” comprise:

One yellow book, thread sewn, printed in black duotone with screen-printed drawings.

Two black books, thread sewn, printed with silver inks.

Three full-colour books, thread sewn, with screen-printed drawings.

Four concertina-folded double-sided diptychs in full-colour with screen-printed drawings.

One large full-colour double-sided folded map.

One 7” vinyl record tucked inside a printed and folded glassine poster.

At the centre of the work is a concertina-folded double-sided full-colour triptych.

 Published by D1, Dublin, 2016.

Design by Pony Ltd.

Print production by MM Artbook printing & repro.

Numbered edition of 1,000.

Signed copies Eamonn Doyle has put his signature on the yellow plastic wrap around the book and, therefore, you would need to keep that wrap safe in order for it to remain a signed copy.

Sample images

In i, Doyle presented a sequence of images depicting unknowable figures enveloped entirely in their own interior landscape of street, poised in silent choreography. We focussed on the patterns, colours and shapes of wool, polyester, and a certain amount of dust. ON’s black & white giants convulse across the pages, bracing the hard Dublin light. The texture and volumes of the city and the people are somehow hewn from the same rock, though they strike out against it.

End. gives equal significance to the city and its population, but here their combined forces collectively and continuously morph each other in order to survive. Individual journeys of everyday life are compacted repetitively into the same streets. Dubliners wear away at the constructed autonomy of their city, while the streets themselves become a kind of sculptural mental State. End. unfolds like a series of maps — loops of time and place — revealing a city whose concrete is as plastic as the movement of its inhabitants.

End. is a collection of printed and folded sections, with sequences of imagery and illustration that employ a number of different papers and print techniques. There is a 7” vinyl sound work, tracing a coiled beat around the city. The entire work of End. is presented in a numbered slipcase.

Picture of Athens Love

Publisher's Description

Following his first book NEW LOVE in 2015 by Session Press, comes ATHENS LOVE, the second monograph by Ren Hang, one of China’s most distinguished and controversial emerging photographers.  ATHENS LOVE presents Hang’s works taken in Greece in April 2015 during his participation in the Occupy Atopos artist residency and exhibition. ATHENS LOVE is published on the occasion of the exhibition “ATHENS LOVE” at Klein Sun Gallery in New York from March 24 to April 30, 2016.

Hang’s work in ATHENS LOVE includes casual snap shots taken of friends in various locations in Athens and Attica, Greece, such as the beach, woods, cliffs, streets, and apartments. Expressing his awe of the dynamics in nature, Hang responds to it in high spirits, his sense of humor reflecting in the composition and colors of his work. Away from his more politically strict and constraining home in China, Hang enjoys the more relaxed and playful energy in his photographs, and renders his abundant creativity in new avenues of expression. As a result, both the diaristic pictures and the stylized nudes in ATHENS LOVE are imbued with an undeniable sense of discovery and joy, and thrillingly document one of contemporary photography’s most exciting young artists taking bold advantage of the new and unfamiliar.

Picture of Service

Publisher's Description

In this powerful, evocative, and moving collection of images—many never-before published—Platon, one of the most acclaimed contemporary photographers, focuses on the effects of war on soldiers and their families.

Having created over 25 Time magazine covers and succeeding Richard Avedon as a staff photographer for the New Yorker, Platon has become a household name. His evocative portraits of world leaders comprised a hugely successful previous book, Power. Now Platon has turned his lens to military service, embedding himself outside the battlefield in places where so much occurs that is so rarely mentioned. Given unprecedented access to U.S. military training facilities, Platon photographed soldiers preparing for battle in a staged Iraqi village. Aboard the USS San Antonio, he photographed soldiers the moment before they set sail. Platon’s images capture both joy and grief, strength and vulnerability, support and dissent: a young man's t-shirt that reads "Iraq veteran against the war"; an African American woman stands proudly in full military regalia; a double-amputee stares directly from his wheelchair; and, in arguably the most important image of the 2008 U.S. presidential election, an American Muslim mother cradles the grave of her soldier son. Together, these photographs speak volumes about the lives and families of those who fight: their physical and psychological wounds, their extraordinary valor and often modest backgrounds, and the fierce emotions that surround their service.

Picture of On Being an Angel

Publisher's Description

On Being an Angel takes its title from a caption the artist inscribed on two of her photographs—self-portraits with her head thrust back and her chest thrust forward. Typical of Woodman’s work in the way they cast the female body as simultaneously physical and immaterial, these photographs and the evocative title they share are apt choices to encapsulate the work of an artist whose legacy has been unavoidably colored by her tragic personal biography and her death, at age 22, of suicide. In less than a decade, Woodman produced a fascinating body of work — in black-and-white and in color — exploring gender, representation, sexuality and the body through the photographing of her own body and those of her friends. Since her death, Woodman’s influence continues to grow: her work has been the subject of numerous in-depth studies and exhibitions in recent years, and her photographs have inspired artists all over the world. Published to accompany a traveling exhibition of Woodman’s work, Francesca Woodman: On Being an Angel offers a comprehensive overview of Woodman’s oeuvre, organized chronologically, with texts by Anna Tellgren, Anna-Karin Palm and the artist’s father, George Woodman.

Picture of Looking For Alice (Signed)

Publisher's Description

Looking For Alice is an award-winning project by British photographer Sian Davey, which tells the story of her daughter Alice and their family. Alice was born with Down's Syndrome, but is no different to any other little girl or indeed human being. She feels what we all feel. Their family is also like many other families, and Sian's portraits of Alice and their daily life are both intimate and familiar. “My family is a microcosm for the dynamics occurring in many other families. Previously as a psychotherapist I have listened to many stories and it is interesting that what has been revealed to me, after fifteen years of practice, is not how different we are to one another, but rather how alike we are as people. It is what we share that is significant. The stories vary but we all experience similar emotions.”

However despite the normality, the underlying fact is that society does not acknowledge Alice as such, and her very existence was given little or no value. She entered a world where routine genetic screening at twelve weeks gestation is thrust towards birth prevention rather than birth preparation. Indeed, prior to the introduction of screening, children such as Alice would have been severely marginalised and ultimately institutionalised and given little or limited medical care.

Their journey as mother and daughter was not an instantly smooth and happy one either: “I was deeply shocked when Alice was born as an 'imperfect' baby. I was fraught with anxiety that rippled through to every aspect of my relationship with her. My anxieties penetrated my dreams. On reflection I saw that Alice was feeling my rejection of her and that caused me further pain. I saw that the responsibility lay with me; I had to dig deep into my own prejudices and shine a light on them. The result was that as my fear dissolved I fell in love with my daughter. We all did.”
