Mihai Mangiulea's portfolio Shadow Line
"My work on a photograph ends only when I recognize the image that seemed, at first, to be obscured by the real. It is strange to recognize something which hasn't been seen yet. In fact, there is a moment when my work ends because the image has become itself, equal to what I feel I must see. It is the certitude that that image can't be otherwise.

In Memoriam: Marnie Gillett, Director SF Camerawork
"Marnie Gillett, who ran the avant-garde nonprofit SF Camerawork gallery for 20 years and kept the organization alive through the dot-com rent boom that killed other arts groups, has died....'Marnie kept Camerawork vital and important both as a local institution and one that has a national reach,' said Sandra Phillips, senior curator of photography at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. 'It's an invaluable institution, and I just hope that it continues.'"

Photo-Eye Booklist: 2004 Holiday Booklist Photo-Eye Booklist: 2004 Holiday Booklist
In this issue of the Booklist, 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.
