[Important correction: In the review of Don't Kiss Me, on p. 22, and again on p. 40 in the review of Apollo Prophecies, incorrect bibliographic information was unfortunately published. In both instances, the publisher of these fines books is Aperture. The correct information can be found on our website under the listing for each book. We apologize for this mistake.]

Paul Kranzler: Land of Milk and Honey Paul Kranzler: Land of Milk and Honey
"The title can only be meant ironically as photographer Paul Kranzler tells the story of his elderly neighbors, Toni and Aloisia, living out their days in their one-room subsidized apartment. The deeply empathetic photos document the subjects' bewilderment at slipping out of the middle class due to forces beyond their control."—the publisher READ MORE

Inspired by William Klein's blurred photos of New York street life, Andy Warhol's silk-screened productions and Jack Kerouac's free-spirited travel writing, Moriyama developed a new and radical approach to producing images."—the publisher READ MORE

Robert Polidori: After the Flood Robert Polidori: After the Flood
"All the places I went in, the doors were just open. They had been opened by what I collectively call 'the army,' of maybe 20 National Guards from New Hampshire, 15 policemen from Minneapolis, 20 firefighters from New York . . . On maybe half of them or a third of them that I went in, I think that the occupants had been there prior. And some of them did leave certain funeral-like mementos before they left."—Robert Polidori

Kahn & Selesnick: The Apollo Prophecies Kahn & Selesnick: The Apollo Prophecies
"The Apollo Prophecies depicts, in one extravagantly long tritone panorama, an imagined expedition of 1960s American astronauts who land on the moon and discover a lost mission of Edwardian-era astronauts who greet them as long-awaited gods. These wildly inventive staged photographs, evidence of events that never happened, playfully question the role of photography in our sense of historical truth.

About the Limited Edition:
The limited edition, available in a print run of 250 copies, includes a signed and numbered lenticular image (viewed from one angle, it reveals an astronaut from the Edwardian era; from the other an astronaut from the 60s) and a 20-minute DVD documenting the lunar mission."—the publisher READ MORE

The Apollo Prophecies
Collier Schorr: Jens F Collier Schorr: Jens F
"When Schorr met the German teenager Jens F. on a train in 1999 and proposed to photograph him (which she did through 2005), she knew that it was a seduction of sorts and that she intended to bend her model to her will. She set herself the somewhat remarkable task of posing him in all of the stances Helga had taken while posing for Wyeth."—the publisher

"These photographs document a pre-9/11 moment—the officescape of a 24/7 investment bank at the height of the dot-com bubble, where John Pilson (*1968) worked as a computer graphics operator on the graveyard shift. Using the opportunities provided by the "dead time" of late night and early morning, he began to explore this space using still and video photography."—the publisher READ MORE

Marc Joseph: New and Used Marc Joseph: New and Used
"Growing up in Ohio in the 1970s, photographer Marc Joseph's first exposure to art, writing and music came through the eccentric smaller book and record shops of downtown Cleveland. Most Saturday afternoons were spent combing through the stacks in anticipation of a major future purchase—like his first, London Calling by the Clash—or studying certain talismanic book covers like George Orwell's Animal Farm or Allen Ginsberg's Howl. This was the beginning of Joseph's permanent fascination with books and records—both as public artworks and as formative private experiences."—the publisher READ MORE

"For 500 years, the holy city of Vrindavan in northern India has been a haven for India's dispossessed widows. Cast out by their families and condemned by strict marital laws that deny them legal, economic, and, in extreme cases, even human rights, they have made their way to the city to worship at its temples and live in its ashrams, surviving on charitable handouts or begging on the streets."—the publisher READ MORE
