"The images describe the space between — a physical abstraction and presence of what these structures are, versus the environment they occupy. Through themes of electricity, shadow and solidity, I have rendered static structures as symbols, displaying an unexpected beauty and graceful clarity."—Sean Perry

Joe McKenna: Joe's Magazine (1st issue! Photos by Bruce Weber, et. al. ) Joe McKenna: Joe's Magazine (1st issue! Photos by Bruce Weber, et. al. )
"Flick through any fashion publication from the mid-1990s, and it's likely to feel about as relevant as an episode of "Sex and the City." But anyone lucky enough to get their hands on an issue of Joe's Magazine will have a hard time figuring out when it was published...The first issue of Joe's, the brainchild of the stylist Joe McKenna, was published in 1992, and the second in 1998. They have stood the test of time because, unlike the barrage of new magazines that have followed, Joe's paid little attention to celebrities, and even less to advertiser demands. At the height of the supermodel era, McKenna gave his first cover to the most divine woman of all time—the Virgin Mary, who was depicted looking upward and serenely exhaling a cloud of smoke, presumably from a heavenly roll-up. What publication today would include in its debut a feature on the early-'70s model Wallis Franken (wearing, in one instance, only a couple of strategically placed Band-Aids), a tribute to the actor Dirk Bogarde, a lengthy piece on Tennessee Williams and a conversation with the painter Paul Cadmus?"—Armand Limnander: No Ordinary Joe, NY Times, August 26, 2007

John Gossage: Putting Back the Wall John Gossage: Putting Back the Wall—Signed

Signed copies arriving in about two weeks.

"This new volume presents Gossage's Berlin photographs from 1982-1989 revisited as memory. These are documentary photographs, which promise clarity - yet deliver only mystery or might promise invention and fiction - yet actually deliver truth. With every Gossage book there is an inevitable nod to the artistry of the Photobook. An exquisite cover fashioned from the remains of a deteriorating album sets the tone of the publication. Essays by Gerry Badger, Thomas Weski and John Gossage presented in the unconventional, yet masterful manner we have come to expect in a Gossage production. This 2007 volume will also be sold in a slip case with the 2005 Berlin in the Time of the Wall in an edition called 'The Complete Berlin'"—the publisher READ MORE

Anthony Hernandez: Waiting, Sitting, Fishing and Some Automobiles Anthony Hernandez: Waiting, Sitting, Fishing and Some Automobiles—Signed

Signed copies arriving in October.

"The photographs in this book are drawn from four bodies of work made with the 5' x 7' view camera between 1979 and 1983. Broadly speaking, it shows as Lewis Baltz said, people waiting and taking 'very, very humble recreations.' The four image groups making up the book are people waiting at bus stops, people lunching or sitting in public spaces, people at public fishing areas, and automobile repair shops."—the publisher READ MORE

Michael Abrams: Strange and Singular Michael Abrams: Strange and Singular—Signed

Signed copies arriving in about two weeks.

"This first book by Michael Abrams is an album in which the artist's image makes only a fleeting appearance, yet whose hand touches every page. A journey informed by a quote from Michel Foucault... 'a readiness to find strange and singular what surrounds us; a certain relentlessness to break up our familiarities and to regard otherwise the same things; a fervor to grasp what is happening and what passes; a casualness in regard to the traditional hierarchies of the important and the essential'. Abrams sifts through the trove of discarded images that define our past and re-edits them for a new purpose. His goal - to provoke, question or demand reconsideration of our established assumptions. If not initiated by our curiosity, if not what surrounds us everyday, if not that which we might turn on its head, then what?"—the publisher READ MORE

Matthew Monteith: Czech Eden Matthew Monteith: Czech Eden—Signed
"When he first visited the Czech Republic in the 1990s, the rising photographer Matthew Monteith was taken by the details of ordinary life in this country in transition. Captivated by the ineffable-a mood, a sense of place-he made repeated visits, and from 2001-2003 traveled throughout the country with his camera, in hopes of creating a contemporary allegory that would reflect the ideals he had observed in old postcards and in Czech photography from the 1920s and 30s."—the publisher READ MORE

Mark Edward Harris and Richard Misrach in Santa Fe.
Mark Edward Harris was in town on a photo shoot with New Mexico Governor and presidential candidate, Bill Richardson. Harris is pictured here with Richardson holding his book Inside North Korea. Harris's Wanderlust is currently being reprinted.

Richard Misrach stopped by the store last week on his way to Colorado. He has taken over the store in a coup d'etat. photo-eye will only be selling Richard Misrach books in the future. He is shown here with some of his new staff (from left to center): Darius Himes, Booklist editor; Melanie McWhorter, Book Division Manager; Daniel Espeset, Bookstore Assistant Manager; Heather Prichard, Associate Gallery Director; and Richard Misrach. On the list of hot new books for photo-eye (and maybe the only book if Richard decides) is the beautiful oversized On the Beach. ;-)
