Birthe Piontek's portfolio Terrain Vague

"Terrain Vague" is about the twilight zone between good and bad. The project explores the diverse facets and semantic levels of cultural myths, figures and symbols, and illustrates them via combinations of portraits and classic interior and still life photography."— Birthe Pointek

Birthe Piontek's portfolio Sub Rosa

"Sub Rosa invites us to recollect. Sub Rosa reminds us of a time, a stage in one's life which could not have been more intimate, and nevertheless exists as a romanticized blur in our mind today. No period in life is so comprehensively enriched with emotions, frustration and high expectations as the stage between our youth and adulthood. Adolescence, the loss of prolonged innocence and the desire to belong and to be different at the same time, seems to be an unconquerable obstacle in the journey of discovering our identity."—Birthe Piontek

Margaret Bourke-White: Coffee Through The Camera's Lens Margaret Bourke-White: Coffee Through The Camera's Lens
Published at the height of the Depression, these images of heroic workers doing it the old way are here put to overtly didactic use as part of a social studies lesson on the history and production of coffee in Brazil. A scarce Depression era document. For Parr and Badger, Coffee Through The Camera's Lens illustrates the Bourke-White 'conundrum': the photographer of hard-hitting social documentary such as You Have Seen Their Faces who earned far more than most women in the country for doing high paying commercial and industrial work.

Eric Weeks: <em>World Was in the Face of the Beloved</em> Eric Weeks: World Was in the Face of the Beloved—Signed
"Eric Weeks photographs are as epigrammatic and open-ended as a good short story: each suggests a moment out of a larger narrative that continues to unfold. The protagonist of all of them is the same beautiful, dark-haired woman, who also happens to be Weeks' wife, Stacy. But Stacy takes on many guises..."—From the introduction by Jean Dykstra READ MORE

"Danielle Mericle's enigmatic new book of photographs takes as its subject an elusive herd of albino deer that roams a deactivated cold war-era army depot in upstate New York. Through a compelling mix of photographic empiricism and poetic stream-of-consciousness, this book becomes a reflection on our limited ability to access and engage the political past through personal experience."—the publisher READ MORE

Joakim Eskildsen & Cia Rinne: <em>IChickenMoon</em> Joakim Eskildsen & Cia Rinne: IChickenMoon—Signed

One of photo-eye's 2000 Best Books. More copies arriving in 4 to 8 weeks.

"The fruit of a cultural/artistic exchange between the Norwegian and South African governments, IChickenMoon is a unique and inspiring tale. Eskildsen and Rinne traveled to South Africa twice where they met, spoke, and lived with the residents of several tiny villages. What emerged from their encounters were vivid social portraits, texts, and a group of rare field recordings of the villagers singing. Beautifully printed, this book deserves wide acclaim and a home in many collections. A music CD of field recordings is included.
