Andreas Magdanz: Auschwitz-Birkenau (SIGNED!) Andreas Magdanz: Auschwitz-Birkenau (SIGNED!)
"Magdanz's photography makes its effects by means of understatement. Viewing his color images, one sees clearly that the photographic medium of reality is now color, where once it was considered to be monochrome. And this is unsettling: Auschwitz is brought into the here and now. These calm, summery pictures remove it from the long ago and far away, a symbol of the past that we can safely leave with an unbelieving shudder. They force us to meditate not only on what happened, but on the forces of intolerance—still at work—that may allow it to happen again."—Parr & Badger, The Photobook: A History, Vol. II.

Martin Munkacsi: Martin Munkacsi Martin Munkacsi
"Recently, Munkacsi has emerged from history as one of the most significant talents of the twentieth century, having shaped the beginnings of modern photojournalism, set in motion a previously static medium and combined fact-finding accuracy with a highly formal aesthetic standard. Munkacsi was an outstanding representative of the "Neues Sehen" (New Way of Seeing), certainly photography's weightiest contribution to advanced art."—the publisher READ MORE

Dave Anderson: Rough Beauty Dave Anderson: Rough Beauty—Signed
"Rough Beauty is a powerful photographic documentation of the people and places of Vidor, Texas, a poor and isolated town in rural southeastern Texas, most known for its long history as a Ku Klux Klan town."—the publisher

This highly original collectors item features a gorgeous hand-made rubber and glass clamshell casing that houses a first edition of Rough Beauty and an original signed and matted gelatin silver print.
