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.

Edition numbers allocated from lowest to highest as orders are processed.

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

Publisher's Descriptio

Eikoh Hosoe’s platinum prints of strikingly rendered forms and sensuous embraces resonate with potent emotional power. This selection of classic images by Japan’s most revered photographer are united with the words of 19th century French poet Charles Baudelaire, a major influence on Hosoe. Baudelaire’s poems were said to have sent “a new shiver” through the art world, which is exactly what Eikoh Hosoe’s photographs did a century later. Presented in a hand crafted binding, Hosoe’s images and Baudelaire’s poems in a new translation by John Wood offer collectors an array of sensual and intellectual experiences.

First edition. Limited 45 copies with three prints

Publisher's Description

This book encapsulates all of Bruce's nocturnal photographs of Iceland made between 2004 and 2012.

The book has a strong nocturnal theme. Mainly a monograph in nature, it is interspersed with entries from Bruce's journal with thoughts that deal with his experiences of shooting the icelandic landscape in subdued light.

The book can be seen as a photographic day, shot over many years with the opening presenting us with late evening shots. As the book progresses, we move into the small hours of the summer night, where there is no night at all. The book concludes with winter shots made during the fleeting sunrise and sunset of the shortest days of the year.

A short text, written yesterday after a walk with Stephen Gill, and a visit to his studio. It is intended to accompany a series of photographs Stephen made of bricks and rocks picked up in the aftermath of the recent Hackney riots.

  • Words by Iain Sinclair
  • Saddle stitched in dark red cotton thread
  • Edition of 100 copies with signed pigment print in an archival wallet
  • Newspaper and print comes in stitched ratchford cloth sleeve

Picture of Jack Spencer - Prism Series Book No.3

Publisher's Description
Jack Spencer can be considered the Aaron Copland of the American landscape. His methods and techniques are born from the fact that he is as equally fine a painter as he is a photographer. He is an artist unrivaled in his craft.

This Prism monograph entitled Jack Spencer is accompanied by one of four color pigment ink prints that are printed and hand-varnished by the artist. The four loose prints depict a classic vision of America, America as it still is in very few places. This color work of Spencer's is as visually lyrical as Copland's opera The Tender Land or his Appalachian Spring.

Edition; 280 copies Includes one of four loose and varnished pigment ink prints, each in an edition of only 70 copies

200 copies will be for sale

Picture of Traces (Special Edition)
Publisher's Description
A signed and numbered special limited edition of 100 including a 12 x 10” chromogenic print contained within an archival stitched parchment sleeve.

Ian Teh explores the industrial hinterlands of China’s far-flung and impoverished provinces with unflinching precision and subtle intensity. From industrialisation to pollution, these photographic works present the landscape as a repository for humanity’s endeavors, somehow a source of memory and a silent testament to our material desires. In the world’s most populous country Teh has made landscape pictures with close to no people in sight, letting the terrain speak for itself.

Over-mined and ruptured lands have resulted in an organic architecture, reflecting man’s belief that what lies beneath the surface has greater value than what lies above. Yet these photographs do not propose to dictate an easy answer to the problematic balance between improved living standards and environmental nightmares. To quote a retired truck driver in Inner Mongolia “Nowadays we have a better standard of living even if our life spans are shorter. Nothing made here stays here; our government has exported our blue skies to the west.”

In contrast to the landscape vistas we are intermittently submerged into the intimate chronicles of daily life in these environments. Visually darker and obscured, these photographs capture the working conditions at China’s industrial core. We are offered a context in which the passing of time appears fleeting in comparison to the icy stillness and longevity of the land. Ultimately, the brilliant glare from China’s metropolises can be traced back to the hinterland and its migrant workers. There, as in all of China, Ian Teh sees the dream of a nation, the cost and what is deferred for future generations.

Picture of Mitch Dobrowner - Prism Series Book No. 2

Publisher's Description
21ST Editions is honored to announce Mitch Dobrowner, the second book in 21ST Editions' new Prism Series. This Prism monograph comes with one of four different 16" x 20" contact silver gelatin prints, something virtually unheard of since most silver prints of this size are generally made using smaller negatives and enlargers.

It is significant to point out that Mitch has never made or released a traditional hand-processed print in silver or platinum, and he has stated that these are likely the only silver prints he will ever release.

Edition: 280 copies

Includes one of four loose silver-gelatin contact prints, each in an edition of only 70 copies

Picture of One Picture Book #71: Motel Signs
Publisher's Description
“To me, neon really figured in the migration movement on Route 66. The farther you go out West, the more neon you’d see, especially as a presence on hotels. You can see towns like Tucumcari, New Mexico, coming from 20 miles away.” Steve Fitch is well-known for his anthropological studies of the American West. For his One Picture Book, Fitch has turned one of his vernacular assemblages of motels into a running series. Widely published and exhibited, Fitch's photographs are included in the permanent collections of such museums as the Whitney Museum of American Art; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; and The Chicago Art Institute.

Picture of One Picture Book #69: Fishing with My Dad 1978-1995 (Chris Arnold)
Publisher's Description
Corey Arnold’s first monograph, “Fishwork: The Bering Sea” was published by Nazraeli Press in 2011 to wide critical acclaim. In his contribution to our One Picture Book series, Arnold “curates” a group of photographs his father made of him growing up; in each of the photographs, Arnold is either fishing or showing off his catch. Knowing who the subject of these photographs is, his relationship to the one who made these photographs, and how his passions for photography and fishing would later play out, make “Fishing with My Dad” resonate on many levels.
