The Circle
reviewed by George Slade

Several of Fazal Sheikh's monographs have appeared in a trim size, about 8 inches tall by 6 inches wide, and a modest thickness that makes them seem almost like pocketbooks — items one could easily tote on a long journey. The unassuming dimensions of these books, however, belie the profundity of the images they contain. The arc they collectively describe is one of displacement, of peoples who have been subject to abuse, exile, or other manifestations of inhumanity. In that context, the books are perfectly scaled to suggest the minimal possessions one might bear in a situation of extremity — smaller than a pair of shoes and lighter than a jug of water...

Ryuji Miyamoto: Architectural Apocalypse Ryuji Miyamoto: Architectural Apocalypse
"Over the years, Ryuji Miyamoto has kept a watchful eye on Japan's cities as they underwent vertiginous changes. His intention has been to photodocument the demolitions and reconstructions of whole quarters of the cities. Although he tries to photograph the architectural qualities of the cities, he often focuses on the aspect of destruction: the pictures of Kobe after the 1995 earthquake are his most renowned series. 'All I can do is train my eyes and keep watching the world as it goes on changing, scene after scene, again and again.'"—Steidl Verlag

Camille Seaman: The Last Iceberg Camille Seaman: The Last Iceberg—Signed

Signed copies available January 2009.

"It is hardly possible to look at Camille Seaman's icebergs as inert or insentient. Therein lies the gift these images bestow. Though they are made of ice, these massifs of the sea are as diverse and distinct as any terrestrial form."—the publisher READ MORE

Signed copies available January 2009.

"That first morning, as the plume of radioactive debris fell across the land and into the rest of Europe, the authorities evacuated the city of Pripyat and created a 40-kilometer Exclusion Zone around it. The 50,000 residents had fifteen minutes to leave, and never returned. Today a ring of silent fire surrounds these pine woods and abandoned apartment buildings."—the publisher READ MORE

Carlos & Jason Sanchez: Moment of Rupture Carlos & Jason Sanchez: Moment of Rupture

Copies arriving in 4 to 6 weeks.

"Theatrically staged, the photographs of the Sanchez brothers draw the viewer into a dark, anxious and psychologically nuanced world that draws parallels with David Lynch and The Twighlight Zone. This co—production presents a collection of photographic works produced between 2001 and 2006, reproduced in full colour, and accompanied by several essays."—the publisher READ MORE

Copies arriving in 4 to 6 weeks.

"The intimate and delicate nude portraits of this Dutch photographer are characterised by an alienating sensuality. This new series of images, in which Van de Puttelaar depicts women in full length for the first time while retaining every breathtaking detail of their skin, draws its inspiration from the painters Cranach and Botticelli."—the publisher READ MORE

"In 'Homeland' Berman is an American again looking at America. She sees the growing elements of fanaticism and faith in guns and God, creeping through a cross-section of American society. "I've been a documentary photographer since 1987 working in a dozen countries including Afghanistan, Bosnia, India and Vietnam. But most of my time has been spent traveling the USA trying to understand the American Way of Life.""—the publisher READ MORE

Erik Van Der Weijde: Siedlung Erik Van Der Weijde: Siedlung—Signed

Signed copies arriving in 4 to 6 weeks.

"Van der Weijde's photographic project documents over 220 houses built in Germany between 1933 and 1945 in order to eventually provide a house for every working—class NSDAP member. In turn this 'Siedlungpolitiek' was both a powerful Nazi propaganda tool and a way to provide living space to loyal members. Most of these houses still exist, however unless one knows their full history they retain an unassuming normalcy."—the publisher READ MORE
