Melanie's Pick: Charlotte Dumas' Repose

"The animal portraiture is a popular genre in contemporary photography. Many of the photographers who chose to photograph animals (and people in general) attempt to anthropomorphize the animal kingdom applying our emotions and expressions to these beings. This type of portraiture creates an empathetic relationship with the subject of the portrait. Artists like James Mollison in James and Other Apes and Nick Brandt in On This Earth and A Shadow Falls (and the deluxe book sharing both titles), have successfully translated this field of photography into the book format. Charlotte Dumas' previous book Heart-Shaped Hole first introduced me to her two-year project on the stray dogs of Palermo, Italy."

An Interview with Carla van de Puttelaar

"I made many portraits, first as a painter and later as a photographer. I still make them. I always had an interest in faces and bodies. I made portraits mainly at school. Between the lessons I portrayed many schoolmates. Later I started to follow courses to draw nude models. That's how it started and then when I began photographing using a technical camera, the skin became very important to me. I also saw that the skin generally became less and less visible in photography, certainly in magazines and television, which alarmed me, as this is one of the most vital parts of our body, showing so many emotions, such as blushing and goose bumps, and it gives the viewer the feeling that there is so much going on under the surface." — Carla van de Puttelaar in an interview with Anne Kelly

Steven Klein: Stag Film Steven Klein: Stag Film

"In Stag Film Klein reproduces and sequences 60 black-and-white images culled from a larger photographic series on horse studding produced by the photographer. The process of horse studding has fascinated Klein, a well known horse enthusiast and competitor, and in Stag Film he trains his camera on the horse breeding routine involved in collecting a stallion's semen for implanting in mares. Quite literally, a stallion is led into the paddock and introduced to a dummy, or "phantom" mare." — the publisher

About the Limited Editions:
Stag Film is issued in an edition of 2000 copies and a limited, signed edition of 100 copies. The limited edition comes with an original, framed black & white photograph, signed by Klein. The frame is a traditional portrait frame procurable at your local department store. With it, collectors can add Klein's horse to their extended family album. READ MORE

Beautiful Losers DVD

"Punk, no wave, surfing, skateboarding, graffiti, taggers and trashers, hip hop, advertising, TV, print to digital media, indie film and music, fetish, fashion, sex, drugs, and the general smash-up of urban life create a rich stew of influences and responses. Artistic fluency in this situation requires a working inter-media familiarity with constantly evolving and constantly expanding visual language systems and their role in the corporate takeover of social reality. At the same time, to survive, one must learn from "the street," the patchwork present and history that is there for reference and quotation, the present moment that is richly inter-reactive and ever new, constantly now, fleeting, transitory, contingent: history in the making and making contemporary art." — From Alex Sweetman's review of the DVD Beautiful Losers

Drinking the Kool-Aid by Ed Templeton

"Welcome, Ed Templeton, to my convening of visions. Thanks for sharing yours. Especially in Drinking the Kool-Aid, a thoughtfully designed, unusually crafted, and very attractively priced artist's book. Istanbul (where Kool-Aid gained objecthood) must be a previously untapped Shangri-La for labor-intensive printing projects. To borrow some skateboarding images, it has pages that escape the pipe, that fly out like tails and wings (and the spiked hair of the cover portrait, itself part of a folded-over Doppelg�nger). Love the contact-sheet-like semi-belly-band, with its Kerouac/Ginsberg unpunctuated text howling that 'the vapors of flames leave scars on the walls of the church.'" — From the review by George Slade of Ed Templeton's Drinking the Kool-Aid

The Second Pass by Ed Templeton

"The Second Pass celebrates transience. In it, the floating, car-borne, Templetonian camera-eye presents a contiguous sequence of images, flowing across the pages like the "line of material;" he explains that he created the design by laying prints next to each other on his floor and shooting them in situ. I marvel at the book's stream of consciousness; it incorporates images from 15 years of travel for purposes, he notes in an afterword, only incidentally photographic. The choices he's made, aligning individual images of only passing interest, transform lead into, if not gold, a conglomerate that is far more than the sum of its parts." — From the review by George Slade of Ed Templeton's The Second Pass

December Publishing Workshops in New Orleans

Sequencing a Photo Essay, with Sylvia Plachy
This is an intensive editing class for those who want to use photographs to tell a story, be it a personal journey or professional assignment leading to a photo essay for a book, magazine, or publication.

Drawing on over thirty years experience, Sylvia will guide you to examine your personal voice, clarify what type of project you want to pursue, and learn how to best create and sequence your own photo essay. A photograph can stand alone and be rich in meaning, but when you string a number of images together, like lines in a poem or phrases in music - in an essay, show, and especially a book - the pictures become much more than the sum of their parts.

Michael Schmelling: Atlanta Michael Schmelling: Atlanta—Signed

"Atlanta - Since the late 1990s, Atlanta has become a dominant center of hip hop—home to mega-selling artists like Outkast, T-Pain, T.I., and host to a vibrant underground culture of aspiring young rappers and inspired fans. Atlanta is the first book to capture this rich and electric scene. Photographer Michael Schmelling spent many months in Atlanta documenting the artists, the fans, and the hip hop vitality of the city itself. Complementing his images are essays on hip hop subjects and culture by music writer Kelefa Sanneh, interviews with key Atlanta figures like Gucci Mane and Andre 3000 of Outkast, and a digital download mixtape of unreleased songs." — the publisher

About the Limited Edition

Each book comes with an 8x10 C-Print, Edition of 100, and a handwritten list of Atlanta street names - archival ink on acid free paper - each is unique.
