The cover of our Spring issue features a photograph by British photographer Neil Drabble, from his recent release Tree Tops Tall, published by Steidl/Mack. London-based writer/editor Robin Muir lends a fresh voice in his contribution, About Our Cover. Each Spring we proudly announce our list of the favorite books of the previous year—there are 12 stunning winners. Japanese photographer Daido Moriyama talks with publisher Chris Pichler about the first English translation of his classic title, Memories of a Dog. Photographer Aaron Rothman offers part 1 of a 2 part essay on photography, perception and the landscape. And as always, our editor, Darius Himes, reviews the best new books of the Spring season.

Kabuki Players, New Portraits by Hiroshi Watanabe
"Those Kabuki players you see in my photographs are not with the mainstream Kabuki companies in Tokyo. They are with localized small groups located in various parts of Japan. They are not professional actors in a sense, as they don’t get paid for their plays. They actually spend quite a lot of their own money to be in the plays. Kabuki is known for lavish make-up, costumes, and stage set-ups. As such, those who want to be in the plays must be committed and prepared. They spend their time and money because of their love for being in the theater—the attention they get, pride, prestige, and joy of being part of their tradition." Hiroshi Watanabe For further information please contact Wendy Lewis, Gallery Director and check our site for a forthcoming portfolio of these images.
