Ion Zupcu: Fabrics
Most people take images of other people to preserve memories; I photograph still life to preserve memories. I lived thirty years under Communist rule and seven years without my family, daughter and wife. My personal life has been one not only of fear and loneliness but also of love, tenderness and sensitivity.

My work, these still-life photographs, represent memories of the past that are difficult for me to recall; and always I strive to make these memories beautiful and dreamy, so they will have a healing effect. They are representative of fragments of my experience that have been lost and are now found. Through my work I am trying to find a place for them, a home.

Aaron Siskind: Aaron Siskind 100 Aaron Siskind 100
Aside from the 1982 monograph Pleasures and Terrors, a classic title that has been lamentably out-of-print for nearly twenty years, there have been no works available on this exceptional photographer. Anyone devoted to the genesis and development of abstraction in twentieth century art—encompassing all visual arts—will be thrilled to see this new, monumental book on one of photography's great artists, a man who influenced, and in turn was influenced by many of the abstract expressionists.

Masao Yamamoto: A Box of Ku - Signed Masao Yamamoto: A Box of Ku - Signed
This monograph presents the mesmerizing, thoughtful work of Masao Yamamoto. Preserving the fragility of the artist's work, A Box of Ku explores the texture of Yamamoto's tattered and worn originals. Its beautiful color illustrations, Italian papers, and slipcase all make for a notable presentation, worthy of such an intriguing artist. Limited quantities available at this price.

Arthur Tress: Fantastic Voyage Arthur Tress: Fantastic Voyage
This handsome monograph is the first retrospective on the magical, narrative photographs of Arthur Tress whose artistic output has spanned 5 decades. "Tress's forty-five year career has spanned documentary and imaginary worlds; it can be seen as a long, fantastic voyage from early photojournalism into the realms of surrealism, eroticism, staged imagery, and miniature worlds of his own creation."—the publisher.

: Neighborhood: a State of Mind Neighborhood: a State of Mind
First Edition, Second Printing. Small creases on front cover, rubbed, some small staining along edge of first page, otherwise Fine.

"I have found the texts and photographs of this study informative, revealing, and above all life-enhancing. The poet Auden somewhere made this observation: 'We are all on earth to help each other, but what the others are here for, God only knows.' One of the things we are here for finds its culmination in these Baltimore neighborhoods, where human frailties are fully acknowledged and human relationships sustained and fostered. I commend all those who gave themselves to this project." — from the foreword by Wright Morris.
