Photo-Eye Booklist: 2004 Holiday Booklist Photo-Eye Booklist: 2004 Holiday Booklist
What you have been witnessing on the pages of Photo-Eye Booklist is the birth of an exciting and, we hope, engaging new magazine. Our aim is to create an organ for dialogue about issues in photography, the art world and publishing. Ultimately, fostering such a dialogue will both promulgate worthy work and lead to the enjoyment of great books.

In this issue Vince Aletti writes about a new book published by Fraenkel Gallery on Arbus' libraries; Alex Sweetman spends time with Martin Parr and his new history of the photobook. Both of these books, and the articles, contribute to a deeper understanding of the potentials of a photography book.

As usual you will find the Survey of New Books, in which roughly thirty new titles from across the publishing spectrum are reviewed; a second dose of editorial content in the form of articles and interviews; and advertising from a wide array of publishers and photography-related businesses.

Julie Blackmon's portfolio Mind Games
I have photographed my three children and their cousins and friends, focusing on the subject of play. My body of work is not documentary, but about a state of mind that is instinctive and effortless to children in every corner of the world—a state that will flourish if it is permitted to develop."—Julie Blackmon

Reopened MoMA Photo Dept Emphasizes Post-60's Work
In the Museum of Modern Art's reopened photography galleries, "the first half-century of photography (before 1890) is omitted altogether, and the period up to 1960—represented by works by Jacques-Henri Lartigue, Edward Weston, Aleksandr Rodchenko, Henri Cartier-Bresson, and Dorothea Lange, among others—is presented in relatively compact form. This strategy enables a fuller exploration of divergent conceptions of photography since 1960, from the work of Diane Arbus and Andy Warhol to that of Vik Muniz and Andreas Gursky. The new approach also makes room for focused displays of three key bodies of work—by Eugène Atget, Robert Frank, and Cindy Sherman. Subsequent reinstallations of the galleries will give greater emphasis to other episodes and other artists."—Museum of Modern Art
