    Duane Michals is the foremost visual storyteller of our time, and in ABCDuane, he wends through his own creative and biographical narrative in depth. The alphabet explodes into a mythopoeic system in the artist's hands, careening through the ideas, artists, and themes that obsess him. The book is heavily illustrated not only with Michals's own works-including rarely seen and never-before-published portraits, painted tintypes, and color pieces-but also with pieces from his private art collection. Whether a portrait of Eugene Atget by Berenice Abbott, a collage by Joseph Cornell, or an etching by Manet, the works of these masters sit side by side with Michals's inspired images, further revealing the artist's creative process. Funny, intimate, and unguarded, ABCDuane is the perfect primer and creative autobiography of this beloved artist.

    War and Grace
    Magnum photographer Steve McCurry's Afghanistan retrospective

    Afghanistan has long been a country overwhelmed by tribal rivalries, colonial wars, and geo-political conflict. The Afghans have called their mountains "the land of rebellion," a land that has not been successfully occupied since the times of Alexander the Great. These invaders -- Persians, Arabs, Moguls, Sikhs, British, Russians -- may have been thwarted, but wandering through the bazaars of Kabul will attest to their legacy. In the people of Afghanistan, the genes of countless races meet and intermingle.

    Deep are the fissures in Afghan society; the schism between Sunni and Shia, the endemic violence across clans and tribes, and the blood feuds and rivalries within lineages. Yet born of such chaos and entrenched conflict are these most breathtaking of images.

    In this definitive retrospective of his work in Afghanistan, Steve McCurry has curated over 140 gripping images to present a torn, proud people, from the desert of Kandahar to the streets of Kabul and remote rivers of Nuristan. For almost four decades, McCurry traveled to the country regularly, documenting its people with a rare and disarming humanity. His most striking portrait Afghan Girl (1984) has graced the covers of magazines around the world, in equal parts haunting and evoking remarkable grace and dignity. In common with so much of McCurry's work, it has a timeless, painterly quality--entirely at odds with the troubled region in which it was taken.

    McCurry has always been subjected to dangers that are an inevitable part of life "on the road" for photographers. He often ventured behind the lines, usually at great risk. His first trip to Afghanistan in 1979 involved him dressing in Afghan garb in order to be smuggled across the border from Pakistan. That journey into the treacherous, unpredictable landscape -- territory controlled at various times by the Mujahideen, the Russians, and the Taliban -- was one that McCurry would make numerous times. Many other photographers would follow in his footsteps, but none would return with such a flawless body of work.

    "They are a proud people, eyes leveled straight, in contempt as much as in curiosity: these are the faces, both male and female, that peer so defiantly from Steve's magnificent photographs."
    -- William Dalrymple

    Title: Africa

    Empathy and ecstasy, an homage to Africa's people and wildlife.
    Sebastiao Salgado is one the most respected photojournalists working today, his reputation forged by decades of dedication and powerful black-and-white images of dispossessed and distressed people taken in places where most wouldn't dare to go. Although he has photographed throughout South America and around the globe, his work most heavily concentrates on Africa, where he has shot more than 40 reportage works over a period of 30 years. From the Dinka tribes in Sudan and the Himba in Namibia to gorillas and volcanoes in the lakes region to displaced peoples throughout the continent, Salgado shows us all facets of African life today.
    Whether he's documenting refugees or vast landscapes, Salgado knows exactly how to grab the essence of a moment so that when one sees his images one is involuntarily drawn into them. His images artfully teach us the disastrous effects of war, poverty, disease, and hostile climatic conditions.
    This book brings together Salgado's photos of Africa in three parts. The first concentrates on the southern part of the continent (Mozambique, Malawi, Angola, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Namibia), the second on the Great Lakes region (Congo, Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda, Tanzania, Kenya), and the third on the Sub-Saharan region (Burkina Faso, Mali, Sudan, Somalia, Chad, Mauritania, Senegal, Ethiopia). Texts are provided by renowned Mozambique novelist Mia Couto, who describes how today's Africa reflects the effects of colonization as well as the consequences of economic, social, and environmental crises.
    This stunning book is not only a sweeping document of Africa but an homage to the continent's history, people, and natural phenomena.

    Author: ILLMAN TONYA & KYM

    Drama and beauty abound on the plains of Africa, and in this superb collection of images, Australian photographers Kym and Tonya Illman present an intimate insight into Earth's greatest wilderness.

    This lavish book is the result of thousands of hours spent on safari in Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Botswana, Zimbabwe and South Africa. The Illmans' innovative, and sometimes controversial, approach includes cameras buried at the edges of waterholes, mounted on aerial drones and on remote-controlled buggies, with many lost to lions and elephants in the process. They have spent days concealed in photographic hides to capture low-level shots and have chartered helicopters to photograph wildlife and vistas not accessible by land. Each photograph is accompanied by the fascinating story behind its capture.

    In the final section the Illmans discuss the various elements that ensure a successful safari, from both a sightseeing and photographic viewpoint.

    This splendid collection of photographs is an unforgettable record of Africa in all its untamed beauty and raw emotion. From the brutality of the food chain to playful shots of animals at their most uninhibited, from majestic sunsets to brooding landscapes, there is no greater theatre than nature itself.

    This is Africa on Safari.

    Title: Ai Weiwei New York 1983-1993
    Author: WEIWEI AI

    The Chinese artist Ai Weiwei (b. Beijing 1957; lives and works in Beijing) spent the years from 1983 to 1993 in New York. During this time, he took more than 10,000 black-and-white photographs of life in the American metropolis; when he returned to China, the pictures, mostly negatives, were in his luggage. After leaving them untouched for years, Ai made a selection of 226 photographs that were developed and shown at the Three Shadows Art Centre, Beijing, in 2010. These pictures are now on display at the Martin-Gropius-Bau, Berlin, the first time they are shown in Germany; they are also presented in this illustrated book. For the young Ai Weiwei--today China's most famous contemporary artist--his long stay in the United States was a period that shaped his style and set the stage for his future career as an artist. He lived in a tiny apartment in New York's East Village and was an active member of the neighborhood's arts scene. In the 1980s, New York also promised Chinese artists freedom from the repressions they faced in their native country. Ai's camera captured scenes of life in New York: riots in Tompkins Square Park, transvestites at the Wigstockfestival, homeless people in the Bowery. Other pictures are portraits of Chinese and American artists and friends. These photographs are unique documents of an artistically and politically exciting time as seen through the eyes of an artist from China. With essays by John Tancock and Stephanie H. Tung, curator, Three ShadowsArt Centre, Beijing, as well as a conversation between Ai Weiwei and Stephanie H. Tung.

    Title: Alec Soth Niagara

    By way of follow-up to his critically acclaimed debut monograph Sleeping by the Mississippi, Alec Soth turns his eye to another iconic body of water, Niagara Falls. And as with his photographs of the Mississippi, these images are less about natural wonder than human desire. "I went to Niagara for the same reason as the honeymooners and suicide jumpers," says Soth, "the relentless thunder of the Falls just calls for big passion." The subject may be hot, but the pictures are quiet, the rigorously composed and richly detailed products of a large-format 8x10 camera. Working over the course of two years on both the American and Canadian sides of the Falls, Soth edited the results of his labors down to a tight and surprising album. He depicts newlyweds and naked lovers, motel parking lots, pawnshop wedding rings and love letters from the subjects he photographed. We read about teenage crushes, workplace affairs, heartbreak and suicide. Oscar Wilde wrote, "The sight of the stupendous waterfall must be one of the earliest, if not the keenest, disappointments in American married life." Niagara brings viewers both the passion and the disappointment--a remarkable portrayal of modern love and its aftermath.

    1946. A member of Magnum Photos, her list of assignments were a mix of politics, social issues, travel, and current events, with a little glamour thrown in. Arnold is perhaps best known for her images of Marilyn Monroe. She has chronicled figures as diverse as migrant potato workers, heads of state, and screen icons. A blend of exacting technique and moral courage would typify her long career which never settled for clichés or stereotypes. Guided in her own words,

    Once upon a time in America: Rediscovering the first color photographs of the New WorldThese rediscovered Photochrom and Photostint postcard images from the private collection of Marc Walter were produced by the Detroit Photographic Company between 1888 and 1924. Using a photolithographic process that predated the autochrome by nearly 20 years, they offered people the very first color photographs of The United States. Suddenly, the continent's colors were available for all to see. The rich ochres and browns of the Grand Canyon, the dazzle of Atlantic City, became a visual delight not only for eyewitnesses, but for Americans far and wide.Imbued with this sense of discovery and adventure, the pictures gathered here are a voyage through peoples, places and time at once. They take us through North America's vast and varied landscape, encounter its many communities, and above all transport us back to the New World of over a century ago. Over more than 600 pages including fold-out spreads, this sweeping panorama takes us from Native American settlements to New York's Chinatown, from some of the last cowboys to Coney Island's heyday. As luminous now as they were some 120 years ago, these rare and remarkable images that brought America to Americans now bring American's past to our present.

    In American Power, Mitch Epstein investigates notions of power, both electrical and political. His focus is on energy how it gets made, how it gets used, and the ramifications of both. From 2003 to 2008, he photographed at and around sites where fossil fuel, nuclear, hydroelectric, wind, and solar power are produced in the United States. The resulting photographs contain Epsteins signature complex wit, surprising detail, and formal rigor. These pictures illuminate the intersection between American society and American landscape. Here is a portrait of early 21st century America, as it clings to past comforts and gropes for a more sensible future. In an accompanying essay, Epstein discusses his method, and how making these photographs led him to think harder about the artists role in a country teetering between collapse and transformation.

    Title: Americans

    First published in France in 1958, then in the United States in 1959, Robert Frank's The Americans changed the course of twentieth-century photography. In 83 photographs, Frank looked beneath the surface of American life to reveal a people plagued by racism, ill-served by their politicians and rendered numb by a rapidly expanding culture of consumption. Yet he also found novel areas of beauty in simple, overlooked corners of American life. And it was not just Frank's subject matter--cars, jukeboxes and even the road itself--that redefined the icons of America; it was also his seemingly intuitive, immediate, off-kilter style, as well as his method of brilliantly linking his photographs together thematically, conceptually, formally and linguistically, that made The Americans so innovative. More of an ode or a poem than a literal document, the book is as powerful and provocative today as it was 56 years ago.

    When 22-year-old American photographer Blake Wood moved to London in 2007, a mutual friend introduced him to Amy Winehouse. After winning five Grammy Awards for her 2006 album Back to Black, the celebrated singer with the sultry and emotionally raw voice was at the height of her celebrity, but struggling with her wayward partner and the scrutiny of constant media attention. Bonding personally and creatively, Wood and Winehouse developed a close friendship and would become inseparable for the next two years.

    The story of this profound emotional collaboration is told through the lens of her confidant in 85 color and black-and-white photographs, most of them never published before, that reveal their mutual love, trust, and respect. With text by acclaimed pop culture critic Nancy Jo Sales, discover a rare and lighter side of this much-missed icon, totally at ease in front of her friend's camera; a typical young London girl enjoying life to the fullest.

    In a landmark conversation between two of the most significant figures in contemporary photography, Gursky talks to Jeff Wall about the sources for his photographic vision, while an essay by Hayward Gallery director Ralph Rugoff explores important but often neglected areas of the artist's work. Essays by art historian Gerald Schröder and writer-curator Brian Sholis provide new insight into key pictures, and artist Katharina Fritsch offers personal snapshots of her Düsseldorf colleague, creating a portrait of the artist in the round. Presenting the artist's most well known works - including Paris, Montparnasse (1993), 99 Cent (2001) and Chicago Board of Trade III (2009) - as well as new, previously unpublished photographs, this is an indispensible survey of forty years of work from one of the world's most influential artists.

    American photographer Andrew Moore began photographing in Cuba in 1998, and over the next fourteen years he made ten further visits, working to reveal the many facets of the island's unique character and life. In 2002, he published some of this work in Inside Havana, which is now out of print. This new edition includes many of Moore's older classic images but reconceives its predecessor with a new layout and finer, larger reproductions. Cuba also features many older photographs never previously published, as well as new photographs made specifically for this edition. The afterword was especially commissioned for this edition from Orlando Luis Pardo Lazo, one of Cuba's leading independent bloggers. Working with a large format camera, Moore insightfully records the shifting fortunes of Cuba, in superb photographs full of painterly light and dynamic color. His images span a tremendous variety of subjects, ranging from humble interiors to magnificent modernism, as well as portraits and landscapes. One theme introduced in this revised version is the contrast between the frayed patinas of Cuban homes and the great, unspoiled beauty of the island's nature. Cuba is a stirring portrait of a country isolated from the globalized world, overflowing with its own remarkable riches. The photographs of Andrew Moore (born 1957) are represented in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum, Yale University Art Gallery, The Museum of Fine Arts Houston, the Library of Congress, the Israel Museum, the George Eastman House and the Canadian Centre for Architecture.

    Andy Warhol was a relentless chronicler of life and its encounters. Carrying a Polaroid camera from the late 1950s until his death in 1987, he amassed a huge collection of instant pictures of friends, lovers, patrons, the famous, the obscure, the scenic, the fashionable, and himself. Created in collaboration with the Andy Warhol Foundation, this book features hundreds of these instant photos.

    Portraits of celebrities such as Mick Jagger, Alfred Hitchcock, Jack Nicholson, Yves Saint Laurent, Pele, Debbie Harry are included alongside images of Warhol's entourage and high life, landscapes, and still lifes from Cabbage Patch dolls to the iconic soup cans. Often raw and impromptu, the Polaroids document Warhol's era like Instagram captures our own, offering a unique record of the life, world, and vision behind the Pop Art maestro and modernist giant.

    Title: Anja Niemi: In Character
    Author: NIEMI ANJA

    A career-to-datemonograph by Anja Niemi,one of today's mostfascinating contemporaryphotographers, whoplaces herself in frontof the lens to createelegant, meticulouslystaged, and utterlymemorable imagery.

    Anja Niemi: In Character is the first career retrospective monograph by one of the most exciting talents working in contemporary photography. Niemi's work has emerged as a distinctive force within the venerable tradition of conceptual self- portraiture.

    A photo artist who works alone--photographing, staging, and acting out the characters in all of her images--Niemi is a constant presence (in character) in her work, developing complex, nuanced narratives through evocative costume and styling. In her bewitching Darlene & Me series she reconfigures the concept of the Hitchcock blond within a pristine Lynchian landscape for her own visual pleasure--and ours--while in She Could Have Been a Cowboy she turns the lens to a life lived under the constraints of conformity.

    With over one hundred and seventy photographs organized into the six series that have defined Niemi's career to date, supported by an essay and interview by Max Houghton, Anja Niemi: In Character is the perfect introduction for those encountering Niemi's work for the first time, and a comprehensive retrospective for her longtime followers.

    Title: Anthology of a Decade Hedi Slimane Us

    In a 2003 conversation with Ingrid Sischy, French designer Hedi Slimane described his beginnings as a photographer: 'I started taking pictures before I even began in fashion. I didn't start with clothes until I was 16, but I had my first camera when I was 11. I've always taken pictures, almost like some people take notes or write down their thoughts.'Slimane's photographs traverse the music and art scenes, street fashion and haute couture, and are as fresh as his groundbreaking work in fashion.This volume collects his American photographs, taken in New York and Los Angeles between 2007 and 2011. Portraits of Gore Vidal, Kenneth Anger, Ed Ruscha, Courtney Love, Johnny Rotten, Brice Marden, skateboarders, and various male and female models are included alongside street scenes and still lifes.

  • Anthropocene
    ISBN: 9783958294899
    Title: Anthropocene

    Anthropocene is the newest book by Edward Burtynsky to document human destruction of the earth on a geological scale. In photos as beautiful as they are disconcerting, Burtynsky explores issues such as extinction (large-scale burning of elephant tusks to disrupt illegal trade and the black market, the plight of the last white rhino), technofossils (Nigerian landfi ll sites entirely of plastic, massive concrete tetrapods to protect Chinese coastline from erosion), and terraforming (mines and industrial agriculture). Conta ining specially commissioned poems by Margaret Atwood published here for the fi rst time, a statement by Burtynsky and a range of essays, Anthropocene presents compelling artistic and scientifi c responses to these urgent topics.

    The book is one part of the larger _Anthropocene_ project, a multi-disciplinary body of work with fi lmmakers Jennifer Baichwal and Nick de Pencier which includes a major traveling exhibition, documentary fi lm and interactive website. Its starting point is the research of the Anthropocene Working Group, an international body of scientists advocating to change the name of our present geological epoch, Holocene, to Anthropocene_the period where human activity dominates climate and environmental change. Including images of the video components and augmented reality experiences from the exhibition, the book, like the overall project, combines traditional and new lens-based media in an innovative and dynamic expression of humanity_s profound and lasting changes on the planet.

    Title: Arctica: the Vanishing North

    Few landscapes convey Nature in all of its untamed splendor like the Arctic. Fewer still conjure respect like the seldom traveled and ethereal North Pole. Yet, sadly, this largely pristine and mostly misconceived treasure is now in jeopardy. Sebastian Copeland's noble goal in these pages is to pay homage to this wonderland, and, in turn, draw awareness to its perilous plight. Copeland's multi-faceted background--not only as polar explorer and award-winning photographer, established author and journalist, but also as a dedicated environmental activist--offers us a unique vantage point from which to appreciate this lonely spot. Surely, this is the last true wilderness on the planet--and its demise should ring the alarm for lower latitudes. Copeland's authority on the subject is unparalleled and, in this book, his passion for this place truly shines. Although the vision presented in these pages may be poetic, the book's aims are pragmatic--to seduce and inspire the world in order to help foster a market transformation towards a sustainable future.
