Jesse Marlow: Wounded Jesse Marlow: Wounded—Signed
"For the last 2 years Melbourne photographer Jesse Marlow has been documenting people who have been affected by superficial injuries as they go about their daily routine out on the street. Like an obsession, he followed the walking wounded as they awkwardly manoeuvred their way through seas of commuters. A grisly eye-patch made his heart skip a beat and the resilience of people that have been broken in some way endeared themselves to his camera."—the publisher READ MORE

Sally Mann Documentary Premiers at Sundance
"The relationship between Sally, her husband, and the 'What Remains' photographs is at the crux of the documentary. Mann's series is about death — that is, not the process of dying, but about things that are dead. Each part of Mann's series is presented in the film, just as they were in the Corcoran show: photographs of the bones and skin of Mann's dead dog Eva, wet collodion-made images of Civil War battlefields (are those mounds of earthen hills—or graves?), snapshots of a place on her farm where an escaped prisoner shot himself, decomposing corpses, and close-ups of her children's faces.

The film also includes the first images I've seen of a series that art world folks have known about for a while: Sally's photographs of Larry. Mann calls the series 'Marital Trust.' It includes everything from bathing to shaving to working in the garden, to sex."—Tyler Green
