"Thomas Ruff is one of the best-known and most influential German photographers working today.

This volume brings together and comments upon a selection of over eighty-four photographic works on the most diverse subjects: house interiors, portraits, architecture, starry skies, and nocturnal urban views."
with photographs by Daniel Gordon.
"Between 2001 and 2004, on the snowy fields in New York's Hudson Valley and the rocky coasts of the Bay Area in Northern California, photographer Daniel Gordon learned to fly-if only for 1/125 of a second. Using a camera mounted on a tripod, Gordon frames his picture. He then runs out onto the landscape and launches himself into the air, while an assistant snaps the shutter."—Joshua Willey

with photographs by Atta Kim.
"Korean artist Atta Kim (*1956) is surely one of the country's best known photographers. The ON-AIR project has been in progress since 2002. After Monologue of Ice and Superimposition, Eight Hours is the third body of work Kim has produced within the scope of the project. The photographs in Eight Hours are time-exposed images taken over a period of eight hours on eight-by-ten-inch film. The motifs are persons and objects inNew York, China, India, Prague, Berlin, and Paris who due to the long exposure time appear to disappear in proportion to the speed of their movement."

The resulting monograph comprises 47 duotone plates, sequenced geographically from America's heartland of Nebraska, the Dakotas, Kansas and Oklahoma through Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, and Idaho, to the Oregon and California coastlines."
