Jonathan Gitelson's portfolio The Car Project
During the summer of 2004, I moved across the street from the Funky Buddha Lounge, a popular nightclub in Chicago's West Loop neighborhood. Each night I would park my car on the street, and each morning I would find that numerous club fliers had been shoved beneath my windshield wipers and into the cracks of my windows.—Jonathan Gitelson

Chronicle Books, publisher of Nick Brandt's On this Earth, Tucker Shaw's Everything I Ate, and Michael Rauner's Visionary State, is following up these titles with an with what photo-eye considers to be four very strong books for the Fall season.

SEVEN member, Lauren Greenfield is well-known for capturing female culture in America in the books, Fast Forward and Girl Culture. In her latest publication, Thin. Greenfield's touching photos are displayed along with essays on the sociology and science of eating disorders by renowned researchers. Due in November.

Misty Keasler, winner of the Lange-Taylor Prize for her work in the Guatamala City dump, takes on a different subject in her new book, Love Hotels: The Hidden Fantasy Hotels of Japan. Due in February 2007.

The photos in Observations in the Occupied Wilderness, Terry Falke's first monograph, "both honor and subvert the grand tradition of western landscape photography, conveying the bleak splendor of the land and Falke's sheer love of looking."

Under Minor White's direction, the first fine-art photography department in the United States was created in 1946. Chronicle's new history, The Moment of Seeing: Minor White at the California School of Fine Arts features photos of some of the instructors—Model, Lange, Cunningham, Weston—and White's never-before-published writings on the teaching of photography. Due September.

Taking backorders for all titles. Click on the title for more information.
