Michael Matsil: Occupied Territory
"Every one of us has our own internal way of ordering what we see. Our senses elaborate and respond emotionally to raw space by perceiving such things as color, texture and material: the physical qualities of 'place.' The artist has the ability to take 'place' and arrange it, edit it, idealize it and produce a still scene. These scenes are transitory in nature, idealized in form and reflective of a singular perception."—Michael Matsil

Barbara Crane: Private Views Barbara Crane: Private Views
"Crane's instrument of choice, the Polaroid, is of course admirably up to the task. As she comments, The quick feedback of the instant picture is in tune with this energetic style of photographing. This immediacy of result shortens the time it would take my ideas to grow visually, technically and emotionally. What takes a summer of work with Polaroid materials would take three years of picture taking and darkroom time to bring my ideas to fruition.' An incredible inventory of private gestures performed in public spaces, Private Views offers a sun-drenched, sweat-glistening photographic experience."—the publisher READ MORE

Eirik Johnson: Sawdust Mountain Eirik Johnson: Sawdust Mountain—Signed

Signed copies arriving in May. Preorder now.

"A culmination of four years of photographing throughout Oregon, Washington and Northern California, Sawdust Mountain focuses on the tenuous relationship between industries reliant upon natural resources and the communities they support. Timber and salmon are the bedrock of a regional Northwest identity, but the environmental impact of these declining industries has been increasingly at odds with the contemporary ideal of sustainability. In this, his second book, Johnson reveals a landscape imbued with an uncertain future."—the publisher READ MORE

Due in June. Preorder now.

"The public profile of the Japanese photography book has recently boomed, from near—complete obscurity to great desirability. And not only for the aficionados. Photobooks that once were entirely unknown outside Japan now sell at astronomical prices at auctions and online. And yet the photobook has been central to the development of Japanese photography, particularly in its postwar phase. A superb production, Japanese Photobooks is a landmark celebration of the distinct character and influence of the Japanese photobook."—the publisher READ MORE

"Into the Sunset examines how photography has pictured, established and transformed the idea of the American West, from 1850 to the present. The development of photography coincided with the exploration and settlement of the West, and this simultaneous growth resulted in a complex relationship that has shaped the perception of that region's physical and social landscape to this day."—the publisher READ MORE
