Picture of School
Publisher's Description
“Within contemporary photographic practice there is much work being done with the 5/4 camera. The resulting large and beautiful prints can be both seductive and highly detailed. It is also possible to see many brilliant explorations of institutions or particular places usually done with a medium or small format camera. I cannot think of any other project where you get both of these ideas running together so seamlessly. This is part of Wouda’s great achievement in these pictures.” — from the Introduction by Martin Parr.

The fourth title in our “Parr/Nazraeli Edition of Ten”, Raimond Wouda’s School shows groups of pupils at numerous secondary schools in the Netherlands. Rather than depicting classrooms, Wouda chose to photograph the places where students relax between classes, setting his large-format camera high on a ladder and triggering the shutter from the ground via remote control to capture specific moments. According to Wouda, the current debates about substance and behaviour in secondary schools have gone unnoticed by the students themselves, for whom school is a relatively safe place in which to meet and interact with their friends, and to discover their own identity.

Picture of Ideology in Paradise
Signed Copies Available

Publisher's Description
Renowned historian Orville Schell has likened the experience of visiting Pyongyang, capital of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), akin to that of “visiting a faraway museum where we are able to commune with a series of carefully constructed dioramas based not on life during some past period, but on a far more fantastical world . . . a North Korean hallucination of the future.”

In fact, the experience of looking at Hiroshi Watanabe’s images is eerily like stepping into a Social Realist painting: the ruddy-cheeked young girl playing the accordion, the traditional gowns in brilliant pinks and greens of dancers swirling beneath the omnipresent image of the dear leader and the DPRK flag. One is quietly lulled into the sense that life in North Korea might, in fact, be just as it appears within the frames of these images—normal—instead of like the stories of kidnappings, military posturing, and famine. To Watanabe, it is this sense of tension between the news stories flooding the media in both Japan and in the U.S. and his experiences traveling and photographing—under careful surveillance of his two guides and assigned driver—that interests him in this topic. The results, engaging, yet still mysterious, bring us one side of this closed-off place, introducing us to a vibrant, compelling set of individuals, but still leave us to wonder.

Picture of Protest Photographs
Publisher's Description
Chauncey Hare made highly detailed photographs of the interiors of working-class homes and workplaces across America in the late 1960s and early 1970s. This new book contains twice as many moving, disturbing and often surprising photographs as have appeared in his two earlier books, Interior AmericaThis Was Corporate America (1984).

Hare’s fast-paced introduction to the book highlights his life of protest, a life filled with unbelievable coincidences, learning, and pain. He describes his strong identification with the people whose homes he photographs and his adamant unwillingness to betray them by selling their photographs at any price. He tells of his struggles to have his photographs, accompanied by explanatory text, accepted by the art world. He relates the abusive situations he has endured in his childhood, and in his work life as an engineer at a major oil company and at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Picture of Middle Aged Men
Publisher's Description
The largest group of middle-aged people in the world lives in the United States. This is a group of people who are at the height of their cultural power; no longer concerned with figuring out who they want to “be,” they are by no means infirm. And yet when they look in the mirror, they can’t recognize themselves. In a culture that worships youth and infantilizes old age, middle age is often invisible. The faces of these middle-aged men photographed by Adrienne Salinger suggest and reveal the choices they’ve made throughout their lives, experiences beyond their control, and the fragility of time. The particularity of these portraits allows a scrutiny that simply does not occur in “real” life. Because of the uniformity of her approach, Salinger’s pictures also have a power beyond the simple document. They tell the truth the way a novelist tells the truth – that is, completely, and not at all. Adrienne Salinger’s work has been widely exhibited at museums and galleries around the world, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Fundación “la Caixa,” Barcelona; The New Museum, New York; and the Art Institute of Chicago. This is her third book.

Picture of Between the Two

Publisher's Description
Todd Hido’s striking new monograph, Between the Two, weaves photographs of abandoned houses together with portraits of anonymous models in motel rooms that have obviously seen better days. Hido’s uncanny ability to let seediness shine with an internal beauty was first displayed in book form with his 2001 monograph, House Hunting. That first monograph, as well as his follow-up book Outskirts, are now out-of-print, and highly sought-after in the rare book market. Between the Two comprises 35 photographs beautifully printed on matt art paper, and bound in an oversized format. This first printing is limited to 2,000 casebound copies. Todd Hido’s work has been widely exhibited throughout the United States and Europe, and is included in the permanent collections of such museums as the Cleveland Museum of Art; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

Picture of Night of a Thousand Stars and Other Portraits of Iraq
Publisher's Description
. . . Later still, when the images resolved to such a point of clarity that Plato’s perfect, eternal forms were now clearly visible as rubble – from which the imperfect, mortal bodies of Iraqis were exhumed daily – we found it “sad.” None of us had seen Iraq from the vantage point of a glass eye suspended in a dark and astral orbit, naming as violent geometries what we below knew to be people. Such a vantage point seemed like blindness itself, viewed from a great distance. We were its spectators.

Night of a Thousand Stars documents – in text and photographs – life in Iraq before and after the U.S. invasion in 2003. Joel Preston Smith traveled in central and northern Iraq as an independent journalist, living with Iraqis and Kurds, and patrolling with U.S. soldiers. His book is the first comprehensive portrait of Iraqi society in a time of war, as seen from the perspective of both Iraqis and U.S. soldiers. But this is not a book of military and political analysis; Night of a Thousand Stars is a humanistic portrait, focusing heavily on Iraqi home, work and social life during the occupation.

Picture of Untitled Film Stills
Publisher's Description
Cindy Sherman's Untitled Film Stills, a series of black-and-white photographs created between 1977 and 1980, is widely seen as one of the most original and influential achievements in recent art. Witty, provocative, and searching, this lively catalogue of female roles inspired by the movies touches a vital nerve in our culture. This book marks the first time that the entire series has been published as a unified work. Sherman has arranged the sequence of the pictures, and has written a personal essay about their making. To the original sixty-nine Film Stills she has also added a seventieth, from a roll of film that for some years was lost.

Picture of Immediate Family

Publisher's Description

First published in 1992, Immediate Family has been lauded by critics as one of the great photography books of our time, and among the most influential. Taken against the Arcadian backdrop of her woodland summer home in Virginia, Sally Mann’s extraordinary, intimate photographs of her children reveal truths that embody the individuality of her own family yet ultimately take on a universal quality. With sublime dignity, acute wit, and feral grace, Mann’s pictures explore the eternal struggle between the child’s simultaneous dependence and quest for autonomy—the holding on and the breaking away. This is the stuff of which Greek dramas are made: impatience, terror, self-discovery, self-doubt, pain, vulnerability, role-playing, and a sense of immortality, all of which converge in these astonishing photographs. This reissue of Immediate Family is printed using new scans and separations from Mann’s original prints, which were taken with an 8-by-10-inch view camera, rendering them with a freshness and sumptuousness true to the original edition.


 Sally Mann (born in Lexington, Virginia, 1951) is one of America’s most renowned photographers. Her work has been exhibited around the world and is held by such institutions as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, and Whitney Museum of American Art, all in New York; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography. She has received numerous honors, including a doctorate from the Corcoran College of Art and Design, Washington, D.C., and a Guggenheim Memorial Foundation fellowship.


Reynolds Price (1933–2011, afterword) was the author of numerous books, including A Long and Happy Life (1962), volumes of short stories, poems, plays, essays, and memoirs. He was the James B. Duke Professor of English at Duke University.

First published in 1992, Immediate Family has been lauded by critics as one of the great photography books of our time, and among the most influential. Taken against the Arcadian backdrop of her woodland summer home in Virginia, Sally Mann’s extraordinary, intimate photographs of her children reveal truths that embody the individuality of her own family yet ultimately take on a universal quality. With sublime dignity, acute wit, and feral grace, Mann’s pictures explore the eternal struggle between the child’s simultaneous dependence and quest for autonomy—the holding on and the breaking away. This is the stuff of which Greek dramas are made: impatience, terror, self-discovery, self-doubt, pain, vulnerability, role-playing, and a sense of immortality, all of which converge in these astonishing photographs. This reissue of Immediate Family is printed using new scans and separations from Mann’s original prints, which were taken with an 8-by-10-inch view camera, rendering them with a freshness and sumptuousness true to the original edition. - See more at: http://aperture.org/shop/books/sally-mann-immediate-family-book#sthash.feYqUpLr.dpuf

Picture of Revelations
Publisher's Description
Between 1954 and her suicide in 1971 Diane Arbus took some 150,000 photographs. Her work was first published in 1960. She was close to Richard Avedon and studied under Alexey Brodovitch. Her posthumous retrospective exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1972 showed some 150 portraits upon which her reputation was built and has been sustained ever since. Her subjects ranged from anonymous strangers found on the street to celebrities, freaks, circus people and nudists. They are some of the most daring photographs ever made. The 1972 MoMA catalogue has never been out of print and has sold unparalleled quantities. The great retrospective drawn from her entire career has until now remained unpublished. This is a milestone book for which we have been waiting years. The book is published on the occasion of a retrospective exhibition starting in San Francisco in September 2003. It will come to the V&A in London in October 2005 and will run there until January 2006.
