Picture of Black Country Stories SIGNED

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

Publisher's Description

Over the last four years Martin Parr has been working on a commission for Multistory photographing the Black Country. It was an area he knew little of, other than its reputation as a densely populated, post-industrial area; one in decline. Many of the industries that once made the Black Country great have declined, but numerous small factories and manufacturing businesses remain in good health. A degree of regeneration has also come as a result of the many immigrant communities that have made the Black Country their home. The region is now populated with many different communities – Polish, Sikh and Somali to name but a few.

Parr has explored workplaces, temples, churches, shops, clubs and societies. Wary of neglecting the day-to-day experience, he also photographed in the Merry Hill Shopping Centre, in shops such as Tesco, in bars, clubs and nightclubs as well as in leisure facilities such as gyms, sports centres and spas. One particular focus of this new series is on portraiture, an aspect of Parr’s work that has really blossomed through the project. 

For Parr, it was a welcome return to the notion of being a community photographer, something he last did in the late 1970s in the Calder Valley in and around Hebden Bridge ­– connecting to the community, giving back prints to the subjects and ensuring that the photographs are shown locally before being launched on an International stage.

Publisher's Description

Nadav Kander is a recipient of the renowned Prix Pictet and one of today’s most successful pho­tographers. When he learned of the existence of two “closed” cities on the border between Kazakhstan and Russia, he knew that he would have to visit them. For Dust he photographed the desolated landscapes of the Aral Sea and captured fascinating images of the restricted military zones of Priozersk and Kurtchatov, which did not appear on any map until well after the end of the Cold War. Long-distance missiles were tested in Priozersk under great secrecy. Hundreds of atomic bombs were detonated in the so-called Poly­gon near Kurchatov until the program ended in 1989. The bombs were exploded in a remote but still popu­lated area, and covert studies were made of the ef­fects of the radiation on the unsuspecting inhabi­tants. Kander writes how the ticking of the Geiger counter on his belt while he photographed reminded him that he should not become too enthralled with the aesthetic and painterly allure of the crumbling ruins.

John Gossage made the images in Nothing during a month-long visit to The Kingdom in 1985 when he was the guest of a Saudi prince. Describing Nothing, Gossage said, “You can sometimes go so far from home, and what you know, that your pictures have to teach you what they are about. In this case that process took almost thirty years.”

It might be said that these photographs are about where a different place started.

Picture of Hidden Islam SIGNED

2nd printing Sept 2014

Publisher's Description

From the introduction by Martin Parr:

Consider these facts. In Italy the right to worship, without discrimination, is enshrined within the constitution. There are 1.35 million Muslims in Italy and yet, officially, only eight mosques in the whole country.
One consequence is that the Muslim population have accumulated a huge number of makeshift and temporary places of worship. These are housed in a variety of buildings including lock ups, garages, shops, warehouses and old factories.
This shortage of places to worship is particularly acute in north east Italy – where the photographer Nicolò Degiorgis lives – home to many anti-Islamic campaigns headed by the right wing party Lega Nord. The dull images of the many and diverse buildings that house the makeshift mosques are printed on folded pages. You open up the gatefold to reveal the scenes inside the mosques, shot in full colour. The size of the gatherings varies, from large crowds who sometimes pray outside to a small room full to bursting, or to intimate groups of two or three Muslims.
Degiorgis provides a fascinating glimpse of hidden world and leaves the conclusions about this project entirely in our own hands.

Picture of Disco Night  Sept 11 SIGNED

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

Publisher's Description

Disco Night Sept. 11 is a chronicle of America's wars from 2006-2013. The photographs shift back and forth from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to the USA, unsparingly capturing the violent, ceaseless cost, but also the mystery and the madness, the beauty and absurdity at the core of each conflict. The narrative is complemented by nineteen gatefolds which elaborate on places and individuals.

Photographs are fragments, sometimes only loosely tied to important experiences. An extensive text records some of the missing pieces. The stories that precede and follow the moment of the photograph, conversations with soldiers, anonymous graffiti that's part confession, part boast.

Disco Night Sept. 11 is an expansive yet intimate account of this defining era of history.

See here for further details and selected images.

Picture of All in (Signed)

Publisher's Description

The images in this series are of heroin bags collected years ago during a period of the Artists own addiction to the Drug.

Graham McIndoe became intrigued by the typography and design of the glassine envelopes used to package dope, stamped and marked with references to the popular culture of the time like Twilight, Crooklyn and New Jack City. Dealers branded and marketed their product like entrepreneurs in any business, pairing names like Dead Medicine with a skull and crossbones to appeal to risk-takers, or an airplane labeled First Class to give the illusion of grandeur.

The addict becomes the ultimate consumer of the ultimate product -- following a trail of quirky street names carefully chosen to be instantly recognizable to those in the know. But there is nothing hidden about the references to good times (So Amazing, True Romance, High Life), juxtaposed with reminders of the gamble (9 Lives, Black Jack) and the reality of addiction (Flat Liner, Undertaker).

Lou Reed wrote the song “Perfect Day” to describe being on heroin, and that's what every addict chases. But the marketing of that drug, like any product, doesn't always lead us to what's promised. These images are a reminder of both the power of desire and the promises we as consumers want to believe will somehow change our lives.

Picture of Costa (Signed)

Publisher's Description

"14 kms south from Lisboa, where I live, is Costa da Caparica. 
During the last years I often found myself returning to this magnetic place."
José Pedro Cortes

Costa da Caparica is a place, south of Lisboa - a strip of land that exists between the last stretch of civilization and the beach.

In COSTA, we wander through this territory: shacks, outmoded architecture, remains of houses, dirt left by the tide; an agglomeration of sand, vegetation and streets – a peripheral, end-of-the-line location. We are flooded by a strange luminosity; a dazzling and mysterious light which imbues these spaces with a disconcerting and unreal atmosphere, like something seen while in a hypnotic state, encouraging the spectator to participate in a suggestive and paradoxical exploration of individual experience.

"It was 1997 and the new millennium was imminent, one could feel the tense anticipation about what was to come next.
I was alone in Japan, a place I had never been before. During the day I would go out looking for my own sense of the place, photographing, exploring notions of center, a place of convergence, as the world expanded before me in its uncertain course. 

Many years have passed and I felt a need to go back to these images. 
The millennium is long gone but the vertigo of uncertainty is yet to disappear."

Picture of Tokyo Diaries (Signed)

Publisher's Description

In 2009 André Príncipe and Marco Martins travelled to Tokyo to shoot a film about elliptical narratives and the importance of the diaristic practise in Japanese photography.

During a month and in a totally improvised way, the Portuguese filmmakers shot hours of 16mm footage and thousands of photographs of their daily life as well as their encounters with photographers such as Nobuyoshi Araki, Daido Moriyama, Takuma Nakahira, Hiromix, Kohei Yushiyuki and Kajii Syoin. Traces of a Diary was shown in film festivals around the world and received the jury prize at Documenta Madrid.

Initially, the film was going to be a mixture of still photographs and 16mm material but during editing it was decided that only the moving images were to be used. About one hundred rolls of Tri-X 400 film remained in a box, unused. These photographs are now revisited in Tokyo Diaries, a book that is as much about photo books and the way we read them as it is about Japanese photographers. Special appearance by legendary designer Kohei Sugiura.

Picture of Paloma Al Aire SIGNED

Publisher's Description

Ricardo Cases' third photobook deals with an unusual subject: the practice of pigeon racing in the Spanish regions of Valencia and Murcia, a game consisting of releasing one female pigeon and dozens of male pigeons that chase her trying to get her attention. None of them ever gets too intimate, but the winner is the one that spends the most time close to her. The winner is not the most athletic, the toughest or the purest in breed but the more courteous, the one showing more constancy and having the strongest reproductive instinct. The macho.

Raising a male champion entails prestige and profits. Painted in a combination of primary colours, like a flag or a soccer kit, the male pigeon raised and trained to mate becomes a projection of the pigeon-keeper, who embodies its sportive, economic and sexual success or failure in the community. Far from the harsh reality of his daily life, the colombaire has a second life where he can get to the top. He just needs a champion pigeon. The pigeon-keeper stays on the ground, while his projection is able to fly.

The present series examines the game as a symbolic act, a projection and a way of relating to the world. A group of men running through the countryside behind their male pigeons, observing their mating performances, discussing the rules and arbitrations… It refers to the ethnographic documentation of remote tribes rituals or to the group of children who invent a game while discovering the world.
The second edition presents two changes: a picture has been replaced for the following one in a sequence and the back cover features now the names of a new range of competing ‘palomos’. Only number 10 (Carmen Marín, Ricardo’s mother’s, to whom the first edition was dedicated) remains unchanged. Number 19 in the list reads Víctor Galdú Clemente, a pigeon racing referee recently deceased to whom Ricardo dedicates the present edition.

Picture of Talking to Ants SIGNED

The photographs in this series were made in East London between 2009 and 2013. They feature objects and creatures that I sourced from the local surroundings and placed into the body of my camera.

I hoped through this method to encourage the spirit of the place to clamber aboard the images and be encapsulated in the film emulsion, like objects embedded in amber. My aim was to evoke the feeling of the area at the same time as describing its appearance as the subject was both in front and behind the camera lens at the same moment.

I like to think of these photographs as in-camera photograms in which conflict or harmony has been randomly formed in the final image depending on where the objects landed.

Picture of Best Before End SIGNED

The series Best Before end is an attempt to make a series of images that somehow reflect and encompass the intensity of inner city life through not solely exercising photography to depict a chosen subject, in this case part of the image content itself plays a role in creating the images making a more direct physical presence in the image itself. The images were made in East London from where the drinks were also sourced. The colour negative films were part processed and soaked in energy drink, which caused image shifts and disruptions and softened the film emulsion. The softening allowed for manual stretching, moving, tearing and distortion of the layers of film emulsion to take place, and further manual shifts were added with a soft brush whilst the emulsion was still pliable. 

Stephen Gill

Tiredness can indeed kill but then whats death if not a big Chandleresque sleep, in which wiseacre gumshoes drive to the end of the night only to discover that its their own involvement in the case that led to the murder-spree. Ill sleep when Im dead, for all sleep is the sleep of reason we need our wits about us: its an accelerated world out there, demanding split-second decision making capability to hit the right button so as to make the right multi-million dollar trade, or order the next pizza, or download the next app. We swim through an orangey brinelight: a carbonated energy field of unified, fizzing awareness; its dreamlike this existence most certainly but its a waking dream, and for that we have energy drinks to thank.

Stephen Gills beautiful images, which incorporate energy drinks as an integral part of their processing, capture this strange state of being at once driven and aqueous, simultaneously sweet and oh so bitter. The Best Before End series, memorialises the freewheeling Decline of the West; which, to paraphrase Alfred Jarry, the founding father of pataphysics, is best conceived of as a downhill bicycle race sponsored by a major-brand energy drink, in which all of the pursuit riders have the red head of the Minotaur. For myself, Im way out in front of them and pedalling HARD.

Picture of Something Like a Nest (Signed)

Publisher's Description

Something Like a Nest is photographed in the English countryside. Despite more of us living in cities than ever before, or perhaps because of this, the rural idyll – countryside as a place of escape and continuity – is still a potent image. But of course when you stand in a field, farmyard or village the stuff in front of you doesn’t conform easily to this cliché; it’s often more interesting than that. This is a place shaped by both the willing of bucolic images into a physical form and the expediency of the factory. Somewhere things are produced (and consumed) through a combination of the most fundamental ‘natural’ cycles and the complex technology and systems of twenty-first century global capitalism. In this book I hope to create a countryside in which these threads exist together where the noise of contemporary life bleeds into pastoral ideas and conventions.

Publisher's Description

A book of landscape photographs, made entirely on a camera phone.

Julian Calverley is a British born landscape and advertising photographer.

Although known for his advertising and large scale atmospheric landscape work, the last couple of years have seen him embrace camera phone photography. It had never really occurred to him before to use such a device, having always considered his ‘professional’ camera equipment to be the only real choice.

The spontaneous and portable nature of the iPhone, the availability of some excellent image processing apps and the ability to share the work with a wider audience via various microblogging platforms, makes it a powerful and liberating tool, capable of some surprising results.

Often when he's out in the landscape, he'll find himself waiting for a certain quality of light or sea state, or for weather to change, and it's those moments when he'll often take a picture or two with his phone camera. Sometimes it is simply to record the scene in front of him, other times to take a portrait of his ALPA camera, a sort of 'lonely selfie' or memento, from simply being there, and often when scouting a location, the camera acts as a visual notebook, to record specific locations to which he'll return to.

This book is a collection of 60 of those images.  See here for sample images.
