Adam Holtzman's portfolio Absence
"After the unexpected death of my grandfather, I gathered with my family to grieve and to try and put things in order. We began to sort his belongings, going through each room cleaning and packing. After several trips the house became empty of these things that were his. As this process became complete I was struck by the differing voids left as a result. Here was a place, now absent of its occupant, the belongings and life. I traveled back to the house several times to try and express visually this absence I felt, haunted by the transformation that took so little time to complete."—Adam Holtzman

Open for Bidding: Yutaka Takanashi's Machi Open for Bidding: Yutaka Takanashi's Machi
Along with Daido Moriyama and others, Yutaka Takanashi founded the short-lived but enormously influential magazine Provoke in 1968. Takanashi's fragmented compositions capture the multi-layered reality of Tokyo through unexpected juxtapositions and dramatic lighting. Bold shadows hightlight a plentitude of contemporary detail—signage, products, cars, but never people. Picture the compositions of Friedlander with the searching eyes of Evans and Atget, printed in rich, shadowy color, and you come close to the look and feel of Takanashi's images.

Thames & Hudson was founded in 1949 by Walter and Eva Neurath. Their passion and mission for T&H was that its books should reveal the world of art to the general public, to create a "museum without walls" and to make accessible to a broad, non-specialist reading public, at prices it could afford, the research and the findings of top scholars and academics.

"In recent years, collectors and curators have begun to turn their attention to the great mass of anonymous photographs that excite our imagination with their seemingly random recording of public works and private lives...Organized into the themes that govern our lives—from birth to death, from love to war, from travel to celebrity—the photographs gathered here are pleasurable and poignant, giving insight into the human secrets with which we can all identify."—the publisher READ MORE

This limited edition of The Loves of the Poets is limited to 100 copies with an original print numbered and signed by the artist and presented in a black velvet clamshell box. "With the photomontages, Mills uses techniques to convince us that the surreal is real. Ordinary daily rituals are suddenly transfigured by our worst fears. Reality is out of control. Fears that we usually suppress may not be baseless. . . . the (images) exist on the edge of horror and beauty."— Anne Wilkes Tucker
