Frank Ward's portfolio The Drunken Bicycle — Travels in the Former Soviet Union

"'The Drunken Bicycle' is a collection of pictures made in Russia, Ukraine, Mongolia, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan from 2005-2010. I would think of this portfolio as the equivalent to travel writing with a camera except that the pictures contain few tourist vistas or landmarks. Evidence of the Silk Road, Genghis Khan and other empires remain in the dust. The closing picture, illustrating an ancient mosque in Khiva, is actually a photograph of a soccer game where all but one of the participants have blurred into invisibility during the long night exposure." — Frank Ward

Family by Chris Verene

"In the short 'afterword' appended to Chris Verene's recently published monograph, Family, the photographer refers to the images collected here — photographs made over a period of 26 years in his hometown of Galesburg, Illinois — as 'my life's work.' After a careful, fascinated reading of this complicated book, one is tempted to ask why Verene chooses to say 'my life's work' rather than, simply, 'my life.'" — from the review by Faye Robson of Chris Verene's Family

Where Children Sleep by James Mollison

"I know I'm supposed to like this book.

After all, James Mollison's portraiture work is widely respected in the art world. His exhibitions are always well-received and he's published several successful books — including The Disciples, his book about fans of rock bands, which has drawn rave reviews for its clever portrayal of music lovers who mimic their idols. There's also Mollison's strangely intimate project, James and Other Great Apes, which for me is his most interesting work, with its intense close-ups of the amazingly expressive faces of apes." — from the review by Sara Terry of James Mollison's Where Children Sleep

Kishin Shinoyama: Hareta Hi (A Fine Day)--SIGNED Kishin Shinoyama: Hareta Hi (A Fine Day)--SIGNED
Parr and Badger call this "...a baffling, hypnotic book." It is, no doubt, a classic mid-70s Japanese photobook, but it is also a masterpiece of color photography—published a year before William Eggleston's seminal show at the Museum of Modern Art. A rare signed copy.

A Closer Look: In the Near Distance

"Greg Girard's early primitive wanderings are something to take note of. There is a raw sense of isolation and elusiveness that exists in his early photographs, which appear in a new monograph titled In the Near Distance. Girard meandered through many different parts of Asia and British Columbia between 1973-1986 where these photographs were taken — working jobs to feed his passion for travel and sometimes finding a darkroom to develop film and print photographs." — Antone Dolezal

Danny Lyon: Memories of the Southern Civil Rights Movement Danny Lyon: Memories of the Southern Civil Rights Movement
"In the summer of 1962, Danny Lyon packed a Nikon Reflex and an old Leica in an army bag and hitchhiked south. Within a week he was in jail in Albany, Georgia, looking through the bars at another prisoner, Martin Luther King, Jr. Lyon soon became the first staff photographer for the Atlanta-based Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), which already had a reputation as one of the most committed and confrontational groups fighting for civil rights." —US Congressman, John Lewis
