We've Switched Places!
For the past six weeks photo-eye has undergone a complete renovation of its Santa Fe facilities. The gallery and bookstore have switched spaces: the old bookstore space has been gutted, with the high ceilings and long walls providing the perfect contemporary gallery space, and the retail element of the Bookstore has been moved to the historic house that served as the gallery for seven years. Our Auctions, Magazine, and online divisions all have new off-site offices near Santa Fe's coveted Railyard District.

photo-eye Gallery and Bookstore will re-open this Friday. Please join us for the grand re-opening celebration! You can visit both spaces from 5-8 pm.

photo-eye Gallery re-opens with Domestic Vacations by artist Julie Blackmon, the 2006 winner of the Santa Fe Center for Photography Project Competition. A reception for the artist will be held this Friday, June 30th, from 5-8 pm. Exhibition continues through September 8th, 2006. photo-eye Gallery is now located at 376A Garcia Street in Santa Fe, and the Bookstore is at 370 Garcia Street in Santa Fe.

Julie will be giving an artist talk at the Center for Contemporary Arts in Santa Fe, on Saturday July 1st, at 2pm.

Tom Chambers' Portfolio: Rite of Passage
"I explore the dichotomy between what is natural and what is fabricated. Why do people costumed in formal dress seem so omnipotent on the street, yet so vulnerable in the wild?"—Tom Chambers

Anders Petersen: Cafe Lehmitz Anders Petersen: Cafe Lehmitz
Swedish photographer Anders Petersen, began photographing this seedy cafe near the harbor in Hamburg—think of a Tom Waits song come to life—at the end of the 60s. As Parr & Badger write, what Petersen's images depict "should not be regarded as a freak show, even if many of his subjects were lonely, desperate, nasty, sad people, down on their luck. [He] captured what more distinguished names have failed to convey—the authentic whiff of down-beat urban life."

The Fall always brings exciting titles as the publishers prepare for the Holiday season. In the coming issues of our newsletter, we are featuring a few of these upcoming titles. All are available for pre-order and would be wonderful additions to any library.

Come Again is a facsimile reproduction of Robert Frank's notebook from his 1991 commission to document the aftermath of the Lebanese civil war. Diana Michener and Jim Dine's collaborative book, 3 Poems, is wrapped in bright floral cloth and beautifully juxtaposes Michener's black and white images color work by Dine.

Bruce Gilden gives us his version of Fashion Magazine. Inventing Seven Deadly Sins of Fashion, it is a follow-up to Martin Parr's now out-of-print experimental large-format book on the same subject. Guido Mocafico's Medusa documents the beautiful siren of the sea, the jellyfish. It is a reprint of one of the books contained in the three volume Venenum which sold out very quickly.

Other titles of note are by Catherine Opie, Javier Vallhonrat, Joel Sternfeld, Weegee, and Tierney Gearon.

All books due in the Fall. Taking backorders now. Click link with artist name to order.

"Imagine a mythical forest: dappled with smoky light, granite outcrops hosting majestic stands of trees, a brook cascading nearby. Then you stumble across a colony of doughy, often shirtless urban refugees, snapping you back to a specific and much more humdrum time and place."—the publisher READ MORE

"The meanings underpinning Apparition radiate in a number of directions. While many of the images are dark, ghoulish visions, others are hopeful spiritual presences. For Armstrong, the ghosts of ancient Rome represent particularly appropriate messengers of our time, as we contemplate the fate of our own empire."—the publisher READ MORE
