Laurie Tumer is featured in Chinese magazine for her project Glowing Evidence
"...my reason for continuing the project always comes down to this: I am compelled by what I see after applying these fluorescent tracer dyes in darkened rooms, and in the corners of my yard, and illuminating common objects under UV lamps. These objects suddenly become the stunning galaxy of chemical particles they are — that we all are. Then, just as I am reveling in this mystery and awe, I find I am also looking squarely at that which tragically threatens our very existence. Rachel Carson said that both realities must be seen clearly for us to survive."—Laurie Tumer

"I'm still compulsively interested in women. It's funny, I've always compulsively photographed women. I still do. I may very well do "Son of Women are Beautiful." I certainly have the work. I mean, I have the pictures if I wanted to try to get something like that published. It would be a joke."—Garry Winogand

A gorgeous, signed copy of the increasingly scarce hardbound edition of Winogrand's wry and (for the time) groundbreaking look at female stereotypes.

Ari Marcopoulos: The Chance Is Higher Ari Marcopoulos: The Chance Is Higher—Signed

Signed copies arriving in about two weeks.

"In love with the simple direct beauty of this low-fi technique, the artist turned to that medium to create this new body of work. The book is designed by the Swiss team Gavillet and Rust who worked with Marcopolous on his landmark 2005 book Even the President of the United States Sometimes has got to Stand Naked, their cool elegant style subtly emphasizes the directness of the work."—the publisher

More copies arriving this week. Few copies remaining of the first printing.

"Many good photographers fail for reasons outside photography. Subjects not addressed in traditional education, strike down too many, simply because they are unaware of them. Information has been gathered from workshops, especially a workshop Weber has taught since the 1980's, The Next Step. Proven corrective measures are suggested."—the publisher READ MORE

Robert Adams: Time Passes Robert Adams: Time Passes
"Time Passes is a meditation on transience and on the promise inherent in beauty. The pictures were made near Adams's home in the American Northwest, a region once famous for its vast woodlands but now infamous for the ravages of industrial forestry. In the book the photographer turns away from environmental catastrophe in order to study the shore and sea and light."—the publisher

Bill Owens: Bill Owens Bill Owens
"A comprehensive monograph, this volume consists of several sections of work from 1969 to the present, opening at the height of flower power, with images of the Beat generation, Woodstock and the protests against Vietnam. Owens has always remained intrigued by America as a subject: there follows a series of images focusing on urban America, its endless grids and homogeneous cities. In his most recent photos, many of which are in color and previously unpublished, Owens reveals how suburbia has evolved in the last 40 years— from the friendly place he captured in the 1970s to one characterized by sprawl and anonymity."—the publisher

Bas Princen: Artificial Arcadia Bas Princen: Artificial Arcadia
"The pictures produce awareness about the complex qualities that construct contemporary landscape, such as accessibility, wind direction, water currents and communication networks. In addition the use of certain products, such as kites, mountain bikes and GPS monitors has a bearing on the way in which landscape is understood. Bas Princen enters these landscapes with the slowness, sharpness and precision of a large-format view camera."—the publisher READ MORE

Newspace 2008 Juried Exhibition Competition
A breeze, a passerby, a subtle shift in light. All of these things change our perspective slightly, sometimes almost subliminally. And in our contemplation of the atmosphere surrounding us we become witnesses to the gestures of time, changes in natural and manmade places and those who populate them, the social and political strata that ground some and rip others from their roots. These gestures were often referred to by influential French photographer Henri Cartier Bresson as "the decisive moment".

New media artist and curator TJ Norris is at the helm of this exhibition. We categorically seek work that will enliven the space visually, conceptually and otherwise.
