Interviews: The Anonymous Photographer of Quebec

"Quebec is a beautiful, curious little book made by an anonymous photographer. The photographs in the 48-page book document the Canadian province, however the book isn't accompanied by any text to lend specificity to the locations of the photographs. Paging through the small book is an intimate experience, guided by the nameless photographer there is a personal nature to these solitary, snow-covered images. This poetic look at winter in Quebec is carefully handmade by the photographer."

Antone's Picks: Stephen Gill's A Book of Birds

"Like previous Super Labo titles, A Book of Birds is modest, only containing 15 photographs... 15 well edited and sequenced photographs. Some of the images are truly beautiful, a testament to however small and simple a project may be, it still has the potential to suck the viewer into a deep visual meditation. The simplicity of the content in this book works perfectly with the modest design aesthetic Super Labo has become known for. This book is a great achievement for this new up-and-coming publisher and has made me excited to see the projects they come up with in 2011." — Antone Dolezal

from the book War is Personal

War is Personal by Eugene Richards

"Damn. Damn. Damn. War in general. This war. This mentality that proposes war as a solution to geo-political conflict.

There aren't many photobooks that leave me in tears. But this one did. From anger, hopelessness, rage, and despair. From my own sense of loss, from caring interrupted. From a desire that everyone who ever voted for combat, or who profited from it, have a copy of this book handcuffed to them as a reminder that big numbers are comprised of scores of individual lives; and from futility, that such a gesture would have come too late, that this powerfully moving book would encounter blind eyes and deaf ears." —From George Slade's review of War is Personal with photographs by Eugene Richards

from the book Christian Boltankski
Christian Boltanski by Catherine Grenier and Daniel Mendelsohn

"Christian Boltanski takes a comprehensive look at the career of the prolific French artist from 1968 up until 2010. Generously illustrated in full colour, the publication delves into the many facets of Boltanski's practise, which include photography, sculpture, video, printed matter and archival assemblages. Boltanski is perhaps best known for his photo-based installations that invoke feelings of loss, fate, memory, guilt and death. Boltanski mines peripheral photographic sources such as family albums, school photos, detective magazines and obituary photographs and re-contextualises them. By re-photographing and enlarging these disposable or forgotten photographs they become iconic celebrations of memory, and like Warhol, the repetition of images gives the work momentum." —From John Mathews' review of Christian Boltanski with work by Christian Boltanski
