Masahisa Fukase: Yohko Masahisa Fukase: Yohko

Fukase is best known for his brooding masterpiece Karasu (Ravens), which was recently hailed as the the best photobook of the last 25 years. Prior to making the work that became Ravens, Fukase turned his lens on his new wife, Yohko. As Stacey Oborn has written on her excellent site, The Space in Between, Fukase's images of Yohko, "show a multiplicity of moods, filled with both surface and subverted meaning. There are playful, joyous photographs...READ MORE

Elizabeth Avedon asks "What are the top 3 selling photography books of all time?"

"Elizabeth Avedon recently posted an interesting piece on her photo blog entitled "Top 3 Selling Photography Books of All Time." Keeping the focus on fine art photography, Avedon posed this as a question to a number of her fellows in the photo world and received an interesting variety of titles, along with plenty of like-minded answers. photo-eye's Rixon Reed, Melanie McWhorter and Eric Miles were among those polled for their opinions."

Antone's Picks: Infidel

"Infidel is one of the best photography books to come out that documents the United States involvement in Afghanistan. I would go so far to say that it is one of the most powerful photobooks to come out this year. Photographer and film maker Tim Hetherington's Infidel tracks a detailed account of one US platoon serving in the Korengal Valley — their bravery and vulnerability all come forth in this brilliantly designed book. The book looks and feels like a journal — adding an additional layer of intimacy to what already comes through in the pictures — that these men unavoidably shared everything with each other." — Antone Dolezal

Camille Silvy: Photographer of Modern Life by Mark Haworth-Booth

"In this collection of over one hundred photographs, many from a private collection in Paris and published here for the first time, Mark Haworth-Booth, author of the first book on Camille Silvy, (Camille Silvy: River Scene, France) consistently though not always convincingly argues that the 19th century commercial photographer embodied many of the qualities Baudelaire ascribed to modern painters in his 1863 essay, "The Painter of Modern Life." — From the review by Joscelyn Jurich of Mark Haworth-Booth Camille Silvy: Photographer of Modern Life

Melt by Simon Harsent

"My first impression of Harsent's documentation of various icebergs during their migratory pathway is that he is attempting to create a collective portrait of an iceberg. The difficulty that I have with this concept is the implication that if we were presented with photographs of a variety of people we might construct a portrait of a human. Thus after considering the cleaving, wasting away and eventual dissolution of these snowy structures, I sense an alternative symbolic narrative about mid-life crisis, old age, impermanence and eventual passing." — From the review by Douglas Stockdale of Simon Harsent's Melt
