This week in photo-eye Magazine:

John Mathews's review of The Contact Sheet

The Contact Sheet provides a brief insight into the editing processes of forty international photographers by compiling their working contact sheets from shoots that have resulted in a single definitive or iconic image. The book's layout is straightforward and the text on each of the photographers is concise, insightful and accessibly presented in four languages. The texts also contain short biographical information and descriptions on the photographer's methodology and inspiration..." —from John Mathews's review on photo-eye Magazine


Andy Adams and Miki Johnson's "Best of Photobooks 2009"

"In the wake of the Best Book announcements posted on photo-eye Magazine we often encounter many more contributions to this "award" after publication. This year on the photo-eye blog, we posted Grant Willing's response to our best book list (originally posted on Humble Arts) and now Andy Adams, the noteworthy founder of Flak Photo, and LiveBooks and RESOLVE blogger Miki Johnson, have contributed their own response. As a follow-up to their hugely popular online discussion The Future of the Photobook (a follow-up to Joerg Colberg's post on Conscientious), Adams and Johnson have listed here their 10 most exciting photobook related projects for the 2009 year including print-on-demand books, newly founded blogs, not-for-profit publications and many other photography projects. We hope you enjoy this unique contribution to our Best Books lists."

New Portfolio by Maria Luisa Morando

Aqua and White

"These timeless photographs capture a series of moments and allow the viewer to explore the emotions that ebb and flow with them. Like memories, these images have the seemingly counter-intuitive qualities of being highly defined, yet at the same time, being impossible to get close to, no matter how much the viewer tries." — Maria Luisa Morando

Miroslav Tichý: photo-eye Featured Book of the Week:  Miroslav Tichý photo-eye Featured Book of the Week: Miroslav Tichý

"Miroslav Tichý was unknown to most of the world until 2005. Since his work was exposed (and saved) by Roman Buxbaum, Tichý has gained worldwide recognition with exhibits at Michael Hoppen Gallery, Tanja Bonakdar Gallery, BANG Gallery Beijing and Shanghai, and Centre Pompidou. On the occasion of the exhibition, Centre Pompidou produced a beautiful book simply titled Miroslav Tichý. This hardbound catalogue opens with a portrait of the photographer followed by a few pages of shots of his homemade equipment. The remainder of the book presents many of the voyeuristic images that Tichý captured of the quotidian lives of small town Czech women. Tichý, a "Diogenes-like" character, went unnoticed to many as he lurked about with this unpretentious and unimposing hand-crafted camera. The resulting photos are often printed as primitively as they are captured, many uniquely finished with Tichý's unassuming drawn paper frames. This book is replete with essays, albeit in French, on his work by Roman Buxbaum, and others, a biography and bibliography."

Donald Judd: Raume Spaces. Donald Judd: Raume Spaces.
Though this is not a photobook, strictly speaking, Todd Eberle's austere and crisply rendered images themselves show Minimalism's lasting influence. Thus, we include it here. An important examination of the Minimalist aesthetic and, more generally, the the relation of fine and applied art in both art and architecture.

The undulating mountains, high-desert mesas, and stunning red rock buttes touched Georgia O'Keeffe more than any other landscape and inspired her great paintings. Today, the incredible scenery surrounding Abiquiu, New Mexico, continues to attract artist and art lovers from all over the world. It is here, in the heart of one of the world's most spectacular landscapes, where the Abiquiu Workshops offers 5-day workshops/retreats for artist and writers. Tony O'Brien, Candyce Garrett, Walter W. Nelson, Jerry Courvoisier, Ciel Bergman and Douglas Preston, nationally-renowned artist instructors will offer workshops in photography, writing, painting and sculpture.
