Melanie's Picks: Michael Schmelling's Atlanta

"Many of my friends who review books balk at the idea of reviewing a book from a PDF. I agree that this is often an insult — you do not review an item solely on imagery — what is a book if not an object? Well, I am going to break this rule for this pick. I have selected Michael Schmelling's newest book Atlanta based solely on content presented to me as virtual imagery (and the quality of books that I know the publisher Chronicle normally produces). If you are interested in popular culture, hip hop, Southern urban lifestyle or just damn good documentary photos done in a Vice Magazine, flashy (with the use of flash and in a glamorous style) aesthetic, then this book is for you." — Melanie McWhorter

Edouard Boubat: Pauses Edouard Boubat: Pauses
"The fundamental mechanism of Edouard Boubat's work is autobiography. For him, strolling in the neighborhood is as fulfilling as traveling to distant countries...Edouard Boubat seems to me important not just because of his place in the history of photography, but also because, at a time when photography claims its independence and autonomy, he stimulates us, makes us want to wonder, to taste life, to preserve silence around us, so as not to spoil the fragile beauty of the instant—even though this may mean taking photographs."—from Claude Nori's Introduction The definitive Boubat monograph, printed in rich gravure.

from the book Kamaitachi

Kamaitachi by Eikoh Hosoe

"This is the first time Eikoh Hosoe's masterwork Kamaitachi has been priced for the average consumer. The first limited edition of 1,000 copies was published in Japan in 1969 and now sells for thousands of dollars a copy, if you can find it. In 2005, Aperture worked with Hosoe to re-issue the book in another gorgeous limited edition of 500 copies, which now sells for hundreds of dollars.

At last comes this trade edition from Aperture, priced at $60. Beautifully made and reworked by the book's original designer, Ikko Tanaka, shortly before his death, this edition also includes eight previously unpublished pieces from the Kamaitachi series. " —From Sara Terry's review of Kamaitachi with photographs by Eikoh Hosoe

Nirai by Manabu Someya

"In one, strangely absorbing, image from Manabu Someya's Nirai, a small selection of clothes hang from the long, makeshift washing line strung across an urban rooftop. These T-shirts, a single sheet and several smaller pieces of laundry - gathered, inexplicably, on a still smaller laundry rack - cluster together in the centre of the large-format photograph, dwarfed by the neglected space around them and the wider context of a dense residential neighbourhood. A neat metaphor for urban anonymity, the photo is also representative of a sub-section of the book where the photographer focuses on small urban spaces, usually devoid of human presence, where the signs of decay or disuse point to ... well, they point to decay and disuse." —From Faye Robson's review of Nirai with photographs by Manabu Someya
