"The habituées of Andy Warhol's Factory were known for their alleged use of recreational pharmaceuticals, so it is perhaps appropriate that when the Cologne drug company Dr. Madaus, published a fiftieth anniversary photobook, it was designed as a 'Pop art' extravaganza similar to Warhol's Index...[it is] not only a cornucopia of design and layout ideas, it features several pop-up pages in the style of a children's book. The result combines a high purpose with a sense of fun."

PhotoLucida's 2007 in Portland, Oregon April 12-15th
Every other Spring an international set of photographers and reviewers gather in Portland Oregon for a week-long celebration of photography. The mission: an increased understanding of the world through photography. By promoting in-depth, informed, and supportive dialog between photographers, gallery owners, publishers and pundits of various sorts, Photolucida promotes the culture of photography. The next Portfolio Review event will take place April 12-15th, 2007. An intensive four-day portfolio review lies at the heart of the festival, but there are many activities happening around Portland during the dates.

photo-eye Booklist editor Darius Himes, in addition to being a portfolio reviewer, will be giving a slide/audio lecture entitled "1001 Photobooks: Night of the Living Bookheads" on Friday evening. See PhotoLucida website for upcoming details on the conference schedule.

Nicolas Righetti: The Last Paradise Nicolas Righetti: The Last Paradise
"Nicolas Righetti is one of the few Western artists invited to photograph North Korean society. Righetti's images feature a bright urban landscape dotted with paper flower, curvaceous neo-constructivist architecture, and synchronized folk dancing. The telltale signs of the poverty and repression of the North Korean regime remain embedded in the absurd juxtaposition of details: huge guns hidden in the traditional landscape wall paintings; looming, inescapable portraits of the late Great Leader and his son; empty shelves at the Paradise Food Shop; Big Brother exhortations proclaiming nirvana achievable through 'iron discipline.'"—the publisher READ MORE

Henri Cartier-Bresson: Scrapbook Henri Cartier-Bresson: Scrapbook
"Henri Cartier-Bresson was taken prisoner by the Germans in 1940. After two unsuccessful attempts, he managed to escape in 1943. During this time, The Museum of Modern Art in New York, assuming that the photographer had died in the war, started preparing what they thought was a posthumous exhibition of his work.

In the 1990s, Cartier-Bresson once again returned to this scrapbook. Following his death in 2004, the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson, the present owner of the prints, finished restoring them, making it possible to bring a large body of extraordinary, hitherto unpublished work to the public, images that have finally become a memorial collection after all."—the publisher READ MORE

CENTER Announces the Winner of The Santa Fe Prize for Photography 2007

CENTER is pleased to announce that Leigh Anne Langwell of Albuquerque, NM has been selected as the winner of the 2007 Santa Fe Prize for Photography by Vince Aletti, photography critic and regular contributor to Aperture and The New Yorker, The Santa Fe Prize recognizes a gifted and committed photographer who has completed, or is near completion of, a meaningful body of work. In Aletti's eyes, to describe Langwell's work as meaningful would be an understatement. Aletti writes, "Marvelous and wonderful are words that a serious critic tends to shy away from.... Besides, how often does work actually evoke marvels or provoke wonder these days? Leigh Anne Langwell's does."
