Publisher's Description

Kazuo Kitai dropped out six months into his first year of art school, revealing a rebellious streak that led him to become involved in the protest movements of 1960s Japan. His first photography book, “Resistance”, was self-published in 1965. For the rest of the 1960s he continued to follow radical student protests, producing Barricade, Agitators and finally Sanrizuka in 1971.

As the 1960s came to a close, Kitai became disillusioned with political themes and turned to the everyday life of ordinary people. Kitai`s first journey was to one of the most remote parts of Japan, the Shimokita Peninsula, and photographs from this journey to Shimokita in 1970 make up the first half of this book. In 1972 and 1973 Kitai traveled again to this most northerly part of Honshu, to the neighboring area of Tsugaru, and this makes up the other half of this book.

These regions of Shimokita and Tsugaru had been very isolated and barren, with bitterly cold winters. Local language, legends and ancient beliefs had survived into the modern era. The region was known for shamanism and communion with the dead spirits gathering around the holy mountain of Osorezan.

During the rest of the 1970s, Kitai was to continue his exploration of rural areas of Japan, for which, in 1976, he received the award of the inaugural Ihei Kimura Prize, Japan`s most prestigious award for photography.

Publisher's Description

Robbert Flick, born in Holland in 1939, is a Southern California artist who uses photography as his primary medium. This gorgeous new monograph presents an important, early body of work that would inform Flick’s approach to all of his subsequent artistic activities: 

"The late 1960s was an open-ended time with very few boundaries. I was interested in rendering my photographic experience of Los Angeles, and wanted to emphasize the process of that experience. Rather than framing a moment, it became important to acknowledge it. This meant that the act of photographing became a gesture. I was also quite poor and had a limited amount of film. I kept some several dozen self-rolled films in a shoebox; whenever I went out I would reach in for four or five of them, and return them back into the box when exposed, leaving a snippet of leader so the film could be reused. I would have absolutely no idea what was on which film I put in my camera.

At the time I would think of film as an endless continuum, and there was a wish to acknowledge that aspect visually … the idea of multiple exposures was linked to ideas about simultaneity, the use of the “I Ching”  and “there is no such thing as accident”. I photographed in this manner for a period of three years."

One of the images on the cover of the book captures a moment from an Ortiz destruction event: where a piano filled with blood was hammered apart with an axe and subsequently a large number of mice were set free in mousetrap-filled areas on the floor. This Destruction Performance very much summarized the political conditions of the time and the senseless destruction of human life and landscapes engendered by the Vietnam war.

Picture of Prospect of Immortality, The (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

“Would you like to live forever and ever, here on earth? In the near future this may become a real possibility. The Prospect of Immortality is a sober, scientific, and logical argument founded on the undeniable fact: that a body deep-frozen stands a better chance of being revived than of one rotting in the ground; and that many people who died fifty or a hundred years ago of ‘incurable’ diseases would today be cured.” Robert C. W. Ettinger, The Prospect of Immortality

In 1962, Robert C. W. Ettinger published ’The Prospect of Immortality’, the book that gave birth to the idea of ‘cryonics’ – the process of freezing a human body after death in the hope that scientific advances might one day restore life. Photographer Murray Ballard has undertaken a ten year extensive investigation into the practice Ettinger inspired.

The photographs in this new book document the small but dedicated international cryonics community from the English seaside retirement town of Peacehaven; through the high-tech laboratories of Arizona; to the rudimentary facilities of KrioRus, on the outskirts of Moscow. Worldwide there are approximately 200 patients stored permanently in liquid nitrogen, with a further two thousand people signed up for cryonics after death.

The project combines photographs of the technical processes involved, alongside portraits of the people engaged in the quest to overcome the ‘problem of death’. Whilst members have often been ridiculed for their views, Ballard has tried to take an objective stance, allowing the viewer to consider the ethics of the practice, and to decide whether members are caught up in a fantasy world of science fiction, or genuine scientific innovation.

Publisher's Description

"Steve McCurry has given us the world through his iconographic image-making. He has been relentless in his pursuit of images that not only inform but sensitize us to places and people from faraway that are the D.N.A. of our planet. That he risks his life for us is of no concern to him. It is his way, an aspect of his pursuit of enduring art. That he is generous, compassionate, and humble is what drives this award-winning photographer and is what underlies his strength and the potency of his image-making.
   
McCurry is one of the best-known artists of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, and one of the most influential. His images have helped connect us to parts of the world we have never been to, humanizing our perceptions of people throughout the world.
   
But there is one image of McCurry’s that almost everyone knows, even if they don’t know who made it. We are referring, of course, to Sharbat Gula, Afghan Girl (1984).
 It is not too much to say that Afghan Girl has changed the world, “searing the heart” of viewers, owing to its power to inform our perception of humanity. For over thirty years, it has enabled millions of people to connect with another person across wide gulfs of cultural difference. It is this sense of connectedness, achieved through photography, that is McCurry’s great and rare gift to humanity."

Picture of Tokyo (Signed)

Publisher's Description

“In the stately ways of our shining capital the dwellings of high and low raise their roofs in rivalry as in the beginning… how often does the mansion of one age turn into the cottages of the next.” 
Kamo no Chomei

Tokyo is a visual journey through a city at once futuristic and obsolete, its visionary design worn out – like that of a past era. Johanasson uses photography to index the city, finding form and pragmatic order through accumulation and sequence, revealing the city's hidden, modular logic: lego-like segments, a basic square unit repeated indefinitely and in various sizes. These images are unpeopled, showing only the architecture of the city, a container of 13 million people, organised around mass movement and the funnelling of human traffic. Between the concrete, glass and steel, the occasional green life sprouts – miniature gardens in the narrow alleyways, or a cluster of flower pots lining the sidewalk. The architecture creates its own topography, and the city is glimpsed as the last outpost of a fading, mechanised world

Picture of Discordia (Signed)

Final signed copies

Publisher's Description

Discordia by Magnum photographer Moises Saman, represents a personal memory of the nearly four years he spent living and working as a photojournalist in the Middle East during the Arab Spring from 2011 to 2014.

“These photographs were taken while I was working as a photojournalist in multiple countries in the region for publications such as The New York Times, The New Yorker, and TIME magazine. Over these years, the many revolutions overlapped and in my mind became one blur, one story in itself. In order to tell this story the way I experienced it, I felt the need to transcend a linear journalistic language, and instead create a new narrative that combined the multitude of voices, emotions, and the lasting uncertainty I felt.”

In Discordia, Saman presents the unfolding of long and complex photographic sequences, absent of captions, an unexpected and less straightforward journalistic representation of the Arab Spring. The book includes a series of photo collages, created by the Dutch-Iranian artist Daria Birang from Saman’s photographs, grainy cut-outs exploring the repetition of human gestures and theatrics that Saman saw time after time during the events.
‘The editing process for an assignment is very different than that when I’m editing a longer narrative. A book in particular needs rhythm, and, as such, I felt that Discordia had to incorporate the quieter pictures that offer more context, the photographs that sometimes are overlooked in the editorial process because they capture moments just before or after the main event. With the collages, the aim was to literally cut out the subject from the context of the photograph and focus on the theatrical body language and expression of the protesters during clashes, rather than opt for the best single image that captured the action.’

Discordia utilises various artistic approaches to photographic material; double-page spreads, isolated images, provocative two-image comparisons, juxtapositions and the collages. Presented as such, the book builds a visual representation of Saman’s up-close experience with the events taking place around him. The photographs are often ambiguous, depicting fleeting moments on the periphery of the more dramatic events that Saman photographed for editorial publications. Discordia instead presents people gathered in conference, protests on the street, objects, and the continuation of day-to-day life amidst violence and uncertainty. The result is a personal comment on the complex nature of this period, and the ever-blurring line between victim and perpetrator.

The book closes with a series of short essays written by the photographer, vignette-like descriptions of transient characters, encounters, and situations he experienced during the years he spent living and working in the Middle East.

‘Discordia shows the hopes, idealism and strength of rebellion against long-established dictatorial regimes, and also—with great clarity—the price paid for it.’ Julian Stallabras

The work in Discordia was in part made possible with the generous support of The Incite Project (a UK-based private collection of issue-driven photographic prints), the Guggenheim Foundation, the W. Eugene Smith Foundation, and Magnum’s Collectors Circle.

Publisher's Description

The photographs in this book were taken all over the world, and later archived, stored, and then finally unpacked and furiously edited over a period of several years in a breathless, hopeful search for great images. Compiled in this book for the first time, and appearing as if from a series of dreams, they reveal the narrative of a life unfolding. A pool party in Memphis…women wrestling in a chair, one in a leather skirt…time moving slowly in Dar es Salaam…a vase of flowers on a desk distressed almost to the point of abstraction….a watery jungle in London’s Hyde Park.

Work prints were created for editing purposes, which were stacked and grouped together, pored over, shuffled, piled, boxed, put away and pulled out again and again. Some prints were inadvertently damaged during this process -- they were stained, torn, sometimes even scorched. This final, furious editing phase gave the prints a unique “patina”, and added artifacts to the images themselves, and was an intense, and serendipitous, last stage of creation for the work, just as important to finishing the images as their original subject matter, composition, color, and light.

Huger Foote was born in 1961, in Memphis, Tennessee, and has held numerous solo exhibitions in London, New York, Paris, and other cities, including his hometown of Memphis. His work hangs in many public and private collections. This is his second monograph since “My Friend from Memphis”, published by Booth Clibborn Editions in 2001. He resides in NYC and upstate NY.

Picture of Adrift (Signed)

Publisher's Description

"In 2013 I traveled from the continent of Antarctica to Barrow, Alaska, 320 miles north of the Artic Circle, through seventeen countries in the Americas. I documented dwellings, how human habitation responds to and reflects harsh landscapes, and the means with which societies adapt to changing climates, both cultural and physical. During the journey I was drawn to subjects which were both a departure from my work yet still felt like a familiar target: organic and inorganic structures succumbing to the effects of a warming planet." — Magda Biernat

Adrift is a sequenced series of photographs that occilates between icebergs 'adrift' on the ocean and manmade structures submerged in snow. They are hauntingly silent images that might arise out of a frozen dream of a forgotten world and culture. The accordian fold of the book lends itself to a sense of floating from one image to the next.

Picture of Sanrizuka (Signed)

Publisher's Description

Japan in the late sixties was the time when Daido Moriyama published "Nippon Gekijo" in Camera Mainichi magazine, and the first issue of Provoke was released. The exhibition "New Documents", curated by John Szarkowski, was held at MoMA in New York. Living in such an era, "for me, after all, photography is no more than a tool for ripping up and protesting against the times", said Kanoh.

Taking off from the U.S. military's Kadena Air Base in Okinawa, Boeing B-52 bombers repeatedly flew over North Vietnam for air raids. The world saw the break-up of the Beatles, and Mick Jagger, with his uniquely curling upper lip, bouncing around the stage in Hyde Park. The younger generation, whether students or non-students, were then very socially active, and they chose to resist authority. The “anger of youth” underlay their daily lives and thought.— Tenmei Kanoh

At the time, the outbreak of the Narita protest movement (also known as the Sanrizuka struggle) drew Kanoh’s attention when he was 28 years old. Being one of the angry young men, he put himself in the site with his camera. During that time, there were already a number of photographers who had featured Sanrizuka. Yet, Kanoh intelligently captured the uncertainty of information and the disorderly atmosphere that pervaded the Japanese youth.

Through his experiences working as a cameraman, Kanoh gazed at society with his unique perspective. Furthemore, although circumstances are different between then and now, the essence of social phenomena seen through his photography remains unchanged.

Forty three years have passed since then, and yet one plot of land remains intact in the middle of the airport, showing that the protest has passed to the next generation. Kanoh expresses that, with such deep attachment to the land and tenacity of ownership, he knows the profound desire and great fortitude of human beings. “Decades have past and I wonder what the young of today have in their minds. I wonder whether I will witness their action and intellect in response to the crucial issue of the amendments to the 9th Article of the Constitution of Japan.” We invite you to see these works on the Sanrizuka struggle by Tenmei Kanoh.

Picture of Brighter Later

Publisher's Description

As an island race we have always looked out; to find food from the sea, to find opportunity to trade, to find adventure, and to find ourselves. Brighter Later is a journey around the coastal counties of Britain. It is a portrait of the island, looking out rather than in.

As novelist Melissa Harrison writes in her essay included in the book:

"Brian David Stevens’ simple seascapes require a slowing-down, a recalibrating of our usual demand for information, drama and resolution. More than just requiring it, in fact, they induce it: each pair of images leads us quietly out of our everyday world and stands us on a British beach somewhere, shielding our eyes against all that reflected light, that surfeit of sky."

Brighter Later features 68pp of full colour photographs, together with text from Brian David Stevens and Melissa Harrison, with design and layout by Wayne Ford.
