Publisher's Description

In a career that has spanned some 50 years, Lewis Morley has worked with equal ease in theatre, fashion, portraiture, magazine photography and documentary reportage. His body of work, particularly his portraits of key figures of 1960s London, is highly recognised, and with his famous photo of Christine Keeler naked upon a chair, Morley produced an image that is probably one of the most memorable, and most copied, of any photographs of any time.

Born in Hong Kong in 1925 to a Chinese mother and English father, Morley spent much of the war in a Japanese internment camp, before being repatriated to England.

His early photographic work included magazine assignments for Tatler before devoting himself to theatre photography and studio portraits from a studio above Peter Cook’s nightclub The Establishment. Through Cook he help shape Beyond the Fringe and contributed photographs to Private Eye.

In addition to the Keeler portrait, Morley photographed many of the most famous faces of the Sixties, including Salvador Dali, Somerset Maugham, Joe Orton, Andre Previn, David Frost, Dudley Moore, Tom Jones, Clint Eastwood, Judi Dench, Peter O’Toole, Charlotte Rampling, Susannah York, Michael Caine, Barry Humphries, and celebrity couples including John Cleese and Connie Booth, David Bailey and Catherine Deneuve.

Morley and his family emigrated to Australia in 1971 and he worked extensively in colour for the first time in Pol, Woman’s Day and the design magazine Belle. He continued his work in portraiture with studies of Australian celebrities such as Peter Carey, Brett Whiteley, and the young Nicole Kidman. This book includes several hundred photographs, many published for the first time.

Publisher's Description

Surf Site Tin Type is an homage to a sport, a way of life and to the people who practice it.  Over the last decade, Joni Sternbach has created portraits in tintype of contemporary surfers that put the world of surfing in a completely new light. Stunning in their detail, these unique images evoke the romance of surfing and the strong individualism of the men and women who live to ride the waves. Working with a large format camera and using hand-poured tintype plates, Sternbach has profiled a fascinating range of people on beaches around the world, from Malibu to Montauk to Byron Bay, Australia. While most photographers deal with the action of surfing, Surf Site Tin Type captures the surfers and the settings that are the true essence of the sport. Surf Site Tin Type features texts by noted photo critic and historian Lyle Rexer, April M. Watson, Curator of photography at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, champion surfer, writer, and filmmaker Chris Malloy and Johnny Abegg.

Picture of Julia Margaret Cameron

Publisher's Description

Julia Margaret Cameron (1815–79) was one of the most important and innovative photographers of the 19th century. Criticised in her lifetime for her unconventional techniques, she is now celebrated as a pioneering portraitist. 2015 marks the bicentenary of Cameron’s birth and the 150th anniversary of her first museum exhibition – the only one in her lifetime – held at the Victoria and Albert Museum in 1865. 

Drawing on the V&A’s significant collection, which includes photographs acquired directly from Cameron and letters she wrote to the museum’s founding director, Curator Marta Weiss tells the story of Cameron’s artistic development. She also presents, for the first time, a group of photographs recently revealed to have belonged to Cameron’s friend and mentor the artist G.F. Watts. This discovery sheds light on previously unacknowledged aspects of Cameron’s experimental approach.

Publisher's Description

Gorgeous and wide-ranging, this collection of works by established and up-and-coming photographers showcases new developments in erotic photography.

The invention of photography gave artists a new means of expression—and a new way of depicting the human body. This elegant, compelling collection of images from new and established photographers demonstrates how technology has altered the genre—not only in terms of technique, but also composition, theme, and content. This incredibly diverse collection features the works of more than 30 artists from around the world, including Evan Baden’s explorations of the ways youth culture views sex, intimacy, and privacy; Noritoshi Hirakawa’s erotic and intimate portraits, which challenge mainstream conceptions of sexuality and heterosexual desire; David Bellemere’s dreamlike works, which are inspired by 1970s aesthetics, nature, light and the female body shape; and Ana Kraš’s surreal photographs that seem like they were taken coincidentally. At once cutting-edge and tasteful, this compelling volume presents a wide range of erotic photography.

Publisher's Descrption

Over the last twenty years, Hellen van Meene has produced a complex body of work, offering a contemporary take on photographic portraiture. Characterized by her exquisite use of light, formal elegance, and palpable psychological tension, her depictions of girls and boys on the cusp of adulthood demonstrate a clear aesthetic lineage to seventeenth-century Dutch painting. Van Meene captures the intimacy in the photographer/subject relationship, bringing out a sense of honesty and vulnerability from within her models and highlighting the beauty of imperfection. She carefully poses her subjects in their environments to emphasize their fragility, adding a palpable tension to the photographs. At the same time, she captures them at deeper, more introspective moments—masterfully moving between the staged nature of the portraits and the real experiences of her subjects. The combination of van Meene’s instinctive understanding of the universality of adolescent experience and the highly intimate collaboration between photographer and model makes for powerful portraits that resonate long after viewing. This book brings together more than 250 images, for the most comprehensive presentation of the artist’s work to date.

Picture of Naked Reflections

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

Publisher's Description

"In a hidden and cramped atelier in an unknown, possibly non-existent city, we discover naked women. The bodies of these women are palpable, humid, breathing. They are not abstract, not modern, they are real. And the women are not alone. There is always the camera, and they know it is there, though it seems that they are not entirely certain why it is there. They appear to be contemplative, at ease, but is it truly ease, or is it the mellow resignation of women caged by their own flesh, made captive by the heavy shadows that embrace them and sculpt them? The only escape for them is through the windows of mirrors and painted images that surround them - and, of course, the lens of the camera. It is a delusional escape. And then suddenly we are released, we are out in the world: Paris, Halifax, London, New York, Rimini. The brutal juxtaposition makes us question the reality of the streets: are we really there? Are these classics of street photography the dreams of the women in the atelier? Dreams of freedom, of bodies released into structured social space? These photographs are so compelling, so beautiful, we think we have seen them before, but we have not. They are timeless in the sense of "not of our time", like the women in the atelier."
David Cronenberg

Peter Suschitzky started his career as a cameraman at twenty-one, in documentary films destined for German television, in Latin America. When he returned to London, good fortune brought him his first feature film, aged twenty-two. Thereafter, Suschitzky's luck endured and he has been the director of photography on around fifty films, including The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Star Wars Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back, Crash, Naked Lunch, A Dangerous Method, Cosmopolis, Mars Attacks, and Maps to the Stars. His most recent work can be admired in Tale of Tales, directed by Matteo Garrone. His many accolades include the New York critics award for cinematography (for John Boorman's Where The Heart Is), the 2009 ISFF Manaki Brothers Life Achievement Award, and seven Genie awards for Best Cinematography, all of them for movies he shot with David Cronenberg.

Picture of okinawan portraits 2010-2012

Publisher's Description

"First, I would like to express my deepest gratitude to all of those who stood before me and taught immature me about the splendor of living, the seemingly momentary sparkle of evanescence, the power of life with its ability to disentangle everything, and so many other things.

We become afterimages that are constantly passing each other somewhere and small enough to be buried in our memories.

One person is returning a movie they've rented,
one is accompanying their parents on an errand,
one is walking their pet,
one was drenched in the rain,
one has a habit of going to the same place at the same time every day,
and one is just sitting there resting.

There are people who are enjoying something with friends, helping with the housework, going to cram school or some other kind of class, out on a date with their lover, working, shopping on the way home from dinner, suffering from an injury or accident, drunk, going wild, worrying, rejoicing, and distraught with loneliness.

One person talks about someone they like,
one expresses their dissatisfaction with their parents,
one is canvassing for a religious,
one is taking about their experiences in the war,
and one is telling a story that seems like a dream.

One person is a child, one is an adult, one is a man, one is a woman, and one could be either.

Everything is fantastic, everything is ordinary, everyone is inside each person, and they are living each life heartily. Within in an instant, a wave approaches and returns. When I'm standing there, all I can do is click the shutter as I tremble.

Something beyond my own will is captured in a photograph. Although I know that, as I talk and think about photography I am immersed in a lofty sensation, as if this was something that was always mine. But all of this is just an afterthought. It was really only an encounter with a photograph that could have involved that person in that place at that time. That's all.

Photographs always start talking to me in these situations, "Isn't this what you're looking for?" But I can't really say for sure - and probably never will be able to."

Picture of Drivers in the 1980s (Collector's Edition & Print)

Publisher's Description 

Chris Dorley-Brown spent two summers in the mid 1980s photographing drivers stuck in traffic jams in and around East London. This series was his first on colour film and was created when he intended to document the privitisation of Rolls Royce but instead became fascinated by the faces in the traffic caused by the sell-off in the city. The cars, colours, haircuts and expressions of frustration capture the mood and tone of a unique era in Thatcher's Britain.

The images, all shot on film of course, have aged like a fine wine and are now ready to be consumed by the discerning connoisseur.

Collector's Editions are limited to 250 copies per title.

Picture of Mysterious Opacity of Other Beings, The

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

Publisher's Description

Since the publication of Richard Misrach’s best-selling and critically acclaimed publication On the Beach, he has continued to photograph at the same location, building a body of work that has been exhibited as On the Beach 2.0—a reference to the technological and optical developments that have made the intensely detailed, exquisitely rendered depictions possible. The Mysterious Opacity of Other Beings focuses less on the abstraction of water, sand, and mote-sized figures, instead honing in on the gestures and expressions of bathers adrift in the ocean, at play or in poses ranging from relaxation to transcendence.

Misrach has rarely ventured into portraiture; this work is his first to focus exclusively on the human figure. Each photograph features one or more individuals crisply rendered from a distance, as they seem to levitate among turquoise waves, isolated from everything save the shifting patterns of the ocean. There is ambiguity and a sense of the uncanny in the figures suspended in the water: are they approaching the shore or moving away from it? Each image is presented both as full frame and as a series of enlarged details that enable the viewer to lin- ger on each individual’s complete surrender of their body to the sea—a seductive melding of human and nature.

LIMITED QUANTITY

Nazraeli Press is delighted to announce our newest monograph by Mark Steinmetz, The Players. This long-awaited publication presents 73 of Steinmetz’s photographs of adolescent and teenaged baseball players, on the field and in the dugout, focused on the game and lost in their own worlds. Made between 1986 and 1990, the photographs are classic Steinmetz: tenderness, humor, and humanism are all present here, as is Steinmetz’s exquisite use of natural light and attention to poetic detail.

“The kids in Steinmetz’s photographs are ages 6 to 13, with a few older boys. Steinmetz must remember how awkward and uncoordinated bodies that age can be. His empathy is evident throughout the series. Most of these kids are too young to have the grace, skill or concentration required and are too green to experience the sheer pleasure of knowing they are good, maybe really good, ballplayers in an unforgiving sport. These kids run into each other in pursuit of a fly ball. Hope drives their swings more than their awareness of the art of hitting...Steinmetz concentrates less on the players in the field than those outside the base lines who are waiting to play, or cooling off. He observes the managers as well as the spectators who love the game or one of the players, or who just have a free afternoon. He sees “high fives” as well as the “what were you thinking” moments. His photographs have all the skill and grace lacking in the players.” — from the Introduction by Anne Tucker

Picture of Nude Animal Cigar

Publisher's Description

Paul Kooiker is among the most interesting conceptual photographers currently working in the Netherlands. Although his work consists entirely of photographic images, he is not so much a photographer as a sculptor and installation artist. His fascination with intriguing themes like voyeurism, innocence and clichés leads him to construct fictive collections of images that are of extremely uncertain origin, subject and significance. In his latest installation, Nude Animal Cigar, created at the invitation of the Hague Museum of Photography, Kooiker looks back over his twenty-year career in the visual arts. The result is a bewildering array of two hundred photographic works, in which images of nudes and of animals are interspersed with close-ups of the countless cigars he has smoked in his studio over the years.

Paul Kooiker (b. 1964) is not interested in creating the perfect photographic image. The value of his work lies not in his individual photographs (which are sometimes overexposed, blurred by camera movement or grainy), but in what he does with them postproduction – the subsequent process of selection and manipulation. In the initial phase of his creative process he is a deliberately ‘bad’ photographer, producing a mass of exploratory material that often runs to hundreds of images. He then approaches this material as a visual artist, creating ‘collections’ in the form of three-dimensional installations and photo books. These fictive collections look as if they have been found somewhere or have turned up in some ancient suitcase abandoned for decades in an attic. To ensure their credibility, Kooiker pays meticulous attention to internal consistency of form and style. This stands in sharp contrast to the contents of his series, which are often enigmatic and vaguely disturbing.

Publisher's Description

Representing the ultimate publication on the music photography of Anton Corbijn, one of the most important photographers and directors working today, this collection of images, many never before published, focuses on Corbijn’s evolving fascination with the music industry, from the 1970s to the present day.

Corbijn’s interest in music has been the engine of an illustrious decades-long career that most recently has veered to the making feature length films such as The American, A Most Wanted Man, and Life, due to be released later this year. This gloriously illustrated, oversized book pays homage to Corbijn’s obsession with rock and roll—an interest that has led to lifelong friendships with Bono, Michael Stipe, Dave Gahan, and other iconic musicians. Looking back over three decades, it features hundreds of creative, offbeat images that Corbijn was able to capture largely as a result of his close relationships with his subjects. Nearly every revered musician and band is represented in Corbijn’s archives: Nick Cave to Nirvana, U2 to R.E.M., the Rolling Stones to Siouxie and the Banshees. Many of the portraits are accompanied by their subjects’ own take on Corbijn’s distinct style and approach. Also included here are previously unpublished photos of the late Joe Cocker and the band Depeche Mode, who considered him an honorary member. A fitting tribute to an innovative and deeply passionate photographer, this book will rock the worlds of fans of music and photography.

More than 40 engrossing images make up this series of grainy, black-and-white photographs by Daisuke Yokota, the first to feature his nude photography. Through a visual expression that mixes reality and fiction, an indecipherable tangle of human limbs and torsos is made eerily yet sensually tangible within the close quarters of a nondescript bedroom space. Deep shadows threaten to engulf the writhing, fleshy bodies of what seem to be a man and a woman, even as the suggested intimacy of their interaction is negated by the extreme proximity in which Yokota places the viewer.

Publisher's Description

The Nordic Book unfolds the highlights of photographer Søren Rønholts travels in the Nordic countries. He has been photographing landscapes and people, thereby telling stories about Nordic culture, nature and appearance. Rønholt has been working with the Nordic theme for five years. The different groups of pictures are presented along side each other, sharing their stories and creating new ones in their unity.
The landscapes in the book are describing the rough but exceptionally beautiful nature of the Nordic countries. The majestic mountains, dark forests and distant shores create sceneries, which are at the same time deeply calm and very dramatic – but most of all incredibly compelling.

The human figure is depicted through Rønholts nudes and portraits. Especially the female body is discussed in the series of nudes. Photographed in the intimate space of their own homes, Rønholt wanted to show the womanly body as it really is, using the same method, as when he photographs landscapes. Also the Nordic persona is characterised through Rønholts strong portraits, which adds another personal dimension to the groups of pictures.

Each picture in itself and all of them as a sum takes the reader on a journey – an unpolished journey in Nordic identity and life.
