 photo-eye Magazine Reviews

© Duane Michals

This week in photo-eye Magazine:

"This little book has got me all riled up. It purports to be about nothing-things that do not happen, entry zero in an imagined sequence, no captions or dates, and a text that, translated into English from Italian, has only the barest hints of meaning. "This is a diary," the text claims, "made of commas, full stops and white spaces between the words." — from George Slade's review of Fabio Barile's Diary No. 0

"Spending time with Duane Michals recent book, 50, was essentially re-experiencing much of my own photographic life, having come of photographic age with his Somnambulistic period. His fascination with dreams, dreamlike states and dream-walking precedes our current interest with making connections to memories." — from Douglas Stockdale's review of Duane Michael's 50

"Iris Editions Ltd., the collaborative effort of NYC-based Kristopher Graves and London-based Sergio Fernández, has released the first of what is likely to be a remarkable series of luxury edition large-format books. At a scale of about 16x20 in (41x51 cm) and beautifully bound in black cloth with her name embossed on the cover, Laura McPhee's Guardians of Solitude is easily one of largest and certainly among the most lavish photo books I have ever encountered."— from Shane Lavalette's review of Laura McPhee's Guardians of Solitude

"Summer Nights, Walking Photographs by Robert Adams. Published by Aperture/Yale University Art Gallery, 2009.In the past few years some of Robert Adams's seminal and hard to find (or very expensive) early books have been reprinted. The latest effort is an expanded version of Summer Nights, now re-titled, Summer Nights, Walking. The new book is beautifully printed and designed with subtle understatement to match that of Adams's style."— from Richard Gordon's review of Robert Adam's Summer Nights, Walking.

 365 A Book A Day
Wind by Jungjin Lee
"Wind captures the ethereal quality of the element in a series of landscapes dominated by windswept expanses and atmospherically foreboding cloud formations - panoramas that reveal an adventurous spirit, yet resist casual entry."

Portfolio, a selection of early work by Robert Frank.
"When Robert Frank immigrated to New York from Zurich in 1947, having apprenticed with commercial photographers in his hometown, the aspiring young photographer brought along his portfolio to help him secure employment."

Oil by Edward Burtynsky
"Edward Burtynsky's Oil collects a decades' worth of photographing the world's largest oil fields, refineries, freeway interchanges and automobile plants, in an attempt to comprehend the scale of production attending this most politicized of resources."

Father Photographer by Henry Frank.
"Robert Frank's father, Henry, was both the proprietor of a bicycle shop in Zurich, and a keen amateur photographer. Album makes public for the first time a selection of Henry Frank's photographs, including landscapes, family portraits, still-lifes and cityscapes."

In Almost Every Picture # 8: Oolong
"In almost every picture #8 continues this well-established series of found photography books. Its subject is one of the earliest successful photo blogs, a site documenting the story of Oolong, a Japanese rabbit whose unusually flat head made it ideal for balancing objects."

Darwin's Camera by Phillip Prodger.
"The book describes how Darwin struggled to get the pictures he needed, scouring the galleries, bookshops, and photographic studios of London, looking for pictures to satisfy his demand for expressive imagery. He finally settled on one the giants of photographic history, the eccentric art photographer Oscar Rejlander, to make his pictures."
