 photo-eye Magazine Reviews

This week in photo-eye's Magazine:

"I recently sat in a darkened screening room, tears streaming down my face, as I watched the documentary, Changing the Truth, about photographer Gloria Baker Feinstein and how, inspired by a photo workshop in Africa, she returned to adopt an entire Ugandan orphanage." — from Aline Smithson's review of Gloria Baker Feinstein's Kutuuka

"Published on the occasion of her Spring 2008 exhibition at Hauser & Wirth Colnaghi, Roni Horn's catalog Bird highlights a selection of close-up studio portraits of taxidermied Icelandic birds, a typology that Horn worked on for more than ten years."— from Shane Lavalette's review of Roni Horn's Bird

"A young man with straight posture and a broad smile stands wearing a sheath with several knives and holding an animal corpse in his arms. He is a slaughterhouse worker, and judging from his body language, he takes immense pride in his work."— from Antone Dolezal's review of Small Trades with photographs by Irving Penn.

 Limited Editions
Larry Fink: Night at the Met Larry Fink: Night at the Met
"In this beautifully produced special edition book with signed black and white chromogenic print, photographer Larry Fink presents an interesting look at the ritual of a donor party at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC. It was the Apollo Circle Benefit in 2007. The subjects of the book are the guests who attended the party and by so doing became the focus of an interactive exhibition; images of the revelers were captured by Larry Fink and projected onto the walls of the museum throughout the night." — the publisher

The limited edition is comprised of 100 signed and numbered books with a signed black and white chromogenic print are available. A choice between one of two prints are available with this little gem of a book.

 365 A Book A Day

This week's 365 Book A Day featured items are:

Grasslands/Separating Species with photographs by Michael P. Berman, Krista Elrick, Dana Fritz, David Taylor and Jo Whaley.
"This catalogue documents a two-part exhibition that has sprung from the work of Michael Berman, a current Guggenheim Fellow, who is both esteemed in the contemporary art world and a longtime activist with several environmental organizations."

East edited by Regina-Maria Anzenberger.
"The agency remains - is perhaps now more than ever - a place for photojournalists with the ambition to witness the world and produce exciting photo-essays that are visually interesting and journalistically relevant. A meeting place for photographers from both East and West. A family, not a factory, dedicated to photography and quality. A place for people with passion. A virtual home for photography in the midst of Europe, the beautiful city of Vienna" - Regina-Maria Anzenberger

Fake Holidays with photographs by Reiner Riedler.
"Fake Holidays reveals the absurdities of the world's artificial paradises: indoor skiing in Dubai, Tropical Islands in Berlin-Brandenburg, Niagara Falls in China."

Blackout New York with photographs by Rene Burri.
"Blackout in New York. For one night, Burri follows the events, with eight rolls of 35mm film. Without a flash. Using only the scarcely available light. Burri's photo series is not a report in the traditional sense. More a meditation on light, or rather the lack of it."

Birne Helene with photographs by Holger Niehaus.
"The book Birne Helene (French Desert) by German photographer Holger Niehaus gives you the same feeling as walking through a high standard architectural building in the thirties! The scale, the dimensions of rooms and corridors breath the elegant white of the rooms. The white pages in the book become almost as important as the beautiful still lifes which are reminding us to Morandi, Kandinsky and even Donald Judd."

Asylum with photographs by Christopher Payne.
"For more than half the nation's history, vast mental hospitals were a prominent feature of the American landscape. From the mid-nineteenth century to the early twentieth, over 250 institutions for the insane were built throughout the United States; by 1948, they housed more than a half million patients."

Hong Kong Inside Outside with photographs by Michael Wolf.
"During his more than 14 years in Hong Kong, German-born photographer Michael Wolf's perspective on his adopted city has boiled down to an essence of density - the hemmed-in, closely built environment which shapes everything from its peoples' lifestyles to their outlooks and even dreams."
