On the Block: Frederick Sommer: The Birth of Venus (Portfolio of 5 Gravures) On the Block: Frederick Sommer: The Birth of Venus (Portfolio of 5 Gravures)
The collages that these richly printed gravures reproduce are composed of anatomical fragments of engravings from 19th century medical and anatomical texts. The vibrant and dense miniature worlds are the product of Sommer's complex relation to the chance procedure. In many ways they are a subtle refinement of his creative process; he considered this late collage work among the most important of his artistic legacies.

Rosamond Purcell: Bookworm Rosamond Purcell: Bookworm
"With her camera, Rosamond Purcell has long meditated on how human beings classify and thus know the world. In Bookworm, she turns her eye, indeed her whole attention, to one of the oldest forms of collecting and conveying knowledge—the book."—From the review by Mary Anne Redding READ MORE

Midwestern Photographers: MP3 Midwestern Photographers: MP3
"One would think that we, as a collective culture, would be tired of photographers parsing the bleak landscape of American consumerism and revealing, again, our horrid excess, our big-box bravado, our credit card camaraderie and, by extension, the deficiency of our collective and individual spirit. But we're not. Especially when it's captured as capably as does Brian Ulrich for his collection Copia, released alongside Kelli Connell's Double Life and Justin Newhall's Historical Marker as MP3, a three volume box set from the Museum of Contemporary Photography's Midwest Photographers Publication Project.

Sigmar Polke: Photographs 1969-1974 Sigmar Polke: Photographs 1969-1974
"Sigmar Polke is an icon of contemporary art, with the reputation of an art world maverick. His paintings are experimental and provocative. In a classic tabloid moment, Mariette Althaus, Polke's girlfriend from early in his career, has just released some of his photographs from 1969-74. As a society we make pilgrimages—to Giverny, Ghost Ranch, Jim Morrison's grave or anywhere else that connects us with a famous and admired artist. This latest offering on Polke is an interesting addition to the genre of "historical finds."—from the review by Sheilah Wilson READ MORE

Jonathan Hollingsworth: What We Think Now Jonathan Hollingsworth: What We Think Now—Signed
"Partisanship about the war has eroded any common ground where political debate can take place, even among people of the same age group. The physical isolation in which these political opinions find expression is a stirring and telling metaphor for the lack of forums in America where actual debate of the issues can occur. Sequencing plays an important part in portraying this alienation from the political discourse. The statements and their authors face each but don't address each other; these are, for the most part, singular opinions expressed without an audience, except for the silent viewer."—from the review by Mary Goodwin READ MORE

Martha Casanave: Explorations Along an Imaginary Coastline Martha Casanave: Explorations Along an Imaginary Coastline
"Approaching middle age, I've begun to experience a strange d�j� vu at parties and gatherings where the children of my friends are present. They knock about among the knees of the adults, looking up at everything through the forced perspective of a two- or three- or four-year-old height. Their wide-angle eyes suck at the form and meaning of everything, expanding with an urgent need to record anything that may prove important. I remember being that small receptor, bumped through the crowd, my horizon beginning at pants pockets and shooting upward from there. Martha Casanave, too, remembers this point of view..."—from the review by Zane Fischer READ MORE

David Newsom: Skip David Newsom: Skip
"...the heart of this book is the story of Skip, a 50-something-year-old child who has finally found his place in Idaho, and of a family who has finally found a sense of peace. SKIP, in many ways, is a personal letter with photos from actor and photographer David Newsom to us, his audience. He describes the book as "a kind of poem in images and words, about [his] oldest brother, [his] family, and the pursuit of home.—from the review by Larissa Leclair READ MORE

Andrea Robbins: The Transportation of Place Andrea Robbins: The Transportation of Place—Signed
"The histories and situations of place are richly complex, while the images look simple and lie with transparency. An essay by Maurice Berger connects the work with the Surrealist ethos to disrupt "visual certainty." Published in the contemporary context that finds identity performed and pictures influencing life, New York in Las Vegas and New Mexico in Spain, the book is an important contribution considering issues of place, its nuance and erosion by powerful forces past and present—colonization, tourism and globalization. It's also important food for the perennial problem of the document, further complicated by the fluidity of cultural signification."—from the review by Julie Anand READ MORE
