 photo-eye Gallery Staff Pick

This week's photo-eye Staff selection from the photo-eye Galleries was selected by Online Gallery Coordinator Sarah Bradley. Sarah has selected Mark Surloff's Pelican from Surloff's second portfolio on Florida.

"The walk will be about "seeing". I'll look for strangely beautiful, expressive shapes and textures of nature or half completed works of man; maybe it's their relationship to one another along with the shadows created. When such discoveries are made, they will be savored, but only after a photo has been made."—Mark Surloff

Yurie Nagashima (1995, Nude Self-Portraits) Yurie Nagashima (1995, Nude Self-Portraits)
Yurie Nagashima has won great acclaim for her startlingly intimate self-portraits and portrayals of family life, in which she has photographed herself and her family in the nude. Sure, such subject matter and approach are common enough these days, but for a Japanese woman in the mid-nineties these strategies created quite a sensation. READ MORE

 365 A Book A Day

This week's 365 Book a Day featured items are

Surfland Photographs by Joni Sternbach
"Sternbach makes her photographs in tintype, a labor-intensive technique little changed since it's invention in the 1850s."

Lisa Kereszi's Fun and Games
"The work in Lisa Kereszi's new monograph, titled after the name of a Jersey Shore arcade and the Ancient Roman wrestling phrase, "It's all fun and games, until someone loses an eye," documents the artist's self-described obsession with what is hidden behind the facades of strip clubs..."

2nd Tour Hope I Don't Die with photographs by Peter van Agtmael
"As an embedded photographer, van Agtmael follows the great sweep of the war with his camera—from graphic casualties, medical evacuations, and the aftermath of suicide bombings to moving portraits of young soldiers and their families recuperating, mourning, and surviving the harrowing consequences of war."

The Possible Life of Christian Boltanski
"The Possible Life of Christian Boltanski, written in the form of a book-length interview (which the artist likens to a 'psychoanalysis' or 'confession') with the art historian Catherine Grenier, is Boltanski's oral autobiography."

Disorient, a work by Fiona Tan
"Fiona Tan has developed the project Disorient, which consists of three different works: Disorient, Rise and Fall, Provenance. Her audio-visual installation refers to Venice's pivotal position in the history of geostrategy in the time before the discovery of new routes to Asia diluted the city's power."

Raymond Meeks' handmade artist book middle air
"The pages of the book are 'french fold' and hand sewn by esteemed book artist, Rory Sparks. It is my wish that our collaboration of craftsmanship and art, will result in a series of books that are both beautiful to view & hold, conveying quality and great care while extending support to a vital community of book artisans."

Public Photographic Spaces. Propaganda Exhibitions from Pressa to The Family of Man, 1928-55.
"Photography, and the political ideology of designing exhibitions This book focuses from a chronological perspective on photography as a tool for a new visuality and the rupture of the role of the spectator: photographic exhibitions from 1928 to 1955, from the spaces designed by Lissitzky's to The Family of Man"

 Limited Editions
Karin Apollonia Muller Muller: On Edge Karin Apollonia Muller Muller: On Edge
"...On Edge shows the earth "crumbling away", and our futile efforts to control or hide the subtle invasion of nature into cultivated spaces. Working in color with a muted palette and low contrast, Müller creates powerful images which evoke a sense of displacement in keeping with artist's "visitor status" as a foreigner in Los Angeles. This first printing is limited to 500 copies."—the publisher

About the Limited Edition:
This special edition of On Edge, packaged with an original print in a clamshell box, is limited to 25 copies." READ MORE
