Katie Baum's portfolio Chasing Memory
"When I reflect on the past, I do not hold onto specific facts or conversation. What I recall are the images, the way an object looked — its color, shape, and texture. Tangible objects trigger my memory; I can be standing in a corner store in California in the Springtime and immediately be transported to my grandparents' home on North Charles Street — white with black shutters.

As I move into a new phase of my life, I recognize a strong need to remember the past and record it, to somehow revisit and recreate my own reality. By doing this body of work, I am overcoming the fear that I will lose the pieces to an important time of my life." — Katie Baum

This week photo-eye auction coordinator, Eric Miles, has choosen Plainview, New York by Christine Lebeck as his staff pick

"To make the pictures in her series Nocturn, Christine Lebeck uses a pinhole camera. As she gets into bed she opens the shutter; when she wakes up, she closes it. As she explains, this deceptively simple process, "compresses the intimate experience of an entire night's sleep into one image." While we've come to think of the photographic image as the trace of an instant, here and gone in less than one second, the process employed in Nocturnes asks the viewer to search for traces of time passing. Since its beginnigs, photography has flirted with the paradox of recording that which invisible to the naked eye (see the wonderful 2005 exhibition catalog, The Perfect Medium). And what is more inefffable than time? Though necessary in early photographic processes, long exposure times have often benn used to explore photography's relation to the passage of time (most famously by Hiroshi Sugimoto). Lebeck's photos continue in both of these traditions, thus creating a haunted and atmospheric visual analog for the dream state."—Eric Miles

reviewed by George Slade

Fountain, a beguilingly slim collection based on Andrea Modica's extended relationship with a family and their business in Fountain, Colorado, is an expansion and a welcome revisiting of a photographic program first laid out in her 1996 book Treadwell. It's a pleasure to imagine Modica working on these projects...

More copies arriving in 2 to 4 weeks.

"This new Photoworks publication offers the first comprehensive survey of the work to date of British photographer Anna Fox. Fox began practicing in the early 1980s, emerging as one of the most exciting colour documentarists at a time when photographic and cultural territories were being radically redrawn.

Like many of the new colourists — young British photographers including Paul Reas, Paul Graham, Martin Parr and Paul Seawright — Fox was enchanted by the 'ordinary', and helped, as part of this group, to redefine documentary photography."—the publisher READ MORE

William Eggleston: Democratic Camera: Photographs and Video, 1958-2008 William Eggleston: Democratic Camera: Photographs and Video, 1958-2008
"Drawing together Eggleston's famous and lesser—known works, this lavishly illustrated catalogue is the first to examine both his photography and videos. Of particular relevance are his black and-white images from the late 1950s and 1960s, which helped shape his color photography, as well as the relationship between his provocative video recordings of 1970s Memphis nightlife and his later work. Included are reproductions of newly restored prints, executed specifically for the exhibition. Accompanying the first major U.S. survey of his work, this catalogue will prove the standard reference for Eggleston's photographs for years to come."—the publisher READ MORE

Christopher Makos: Andy Warhol in China Christopher Makos: Andy Warhol in China
"A documentation of Andy Warhol's 1982 visit to China, this volume offers a unique glimpse of the international pop star by Christopher Makos, his personal photographer. With the advantage of hindsight, this volume becomes complexly ironic—in China in the 80s, almost no one knew who Warhol was. Just a few decades later, in 2006, Warhol's 1972 'Mao' sold for $17.4 million to a Hong Kong real estate tycoon."—the publisher READ MORE

"The Quing Dynasty, was the last ruling dynasty of China. Before the collapse of the empire ended 2,000 years of Imperialism and ushered in a time of political and economic strife, artists turned out rich paintings, porcelain plates, vases and photographs? the last having arrived in the country in the 1840's. This publication presents a key selection of photographs of the Southern Chinese coast taken by both Chinese and European photographers."—the publisher READ MORE
