Photolucida Books Discovered

"With the growth of self-publishing, many photographers are not just seeking out advice from photo-eye staff on what established or blossoming publisher would be the right fit for their work. More and more, we are making fantastic book discoveries at the portfolio reviews and the recent visit to Photolucida in Portland, OR was no exception. In addition to books that will be published later this year from established publishers Nazraeli Press and Kehrer Verlag of Christopher Churchill's American Faith and Sol Neelman's Weird Sports respectively, we found some fantastic self-published books and limited editions which we are pleased to add to our curated selection of photography books: Jessica Auer's Unmarked Sites, Klea McKenna's The Butterfly Hunter and Fritz Liedtke's Astra Velum." — Melanie McWhorter

Naoya Hatakeyama: A Bird (Blast #130)--SIGNED Naoya Hatakeyama: A Bird (Blast #130)--SIGNED

"[T]his book is simply a sequence of 17 photographs of an explosion throwing earth into the air... A Bird (Blast #130) is great because it is so much about the unpredictable nature of photography to hold something and allow the discovery of beauty."—Jeff Ladd, from his always excellent photobook blog, 5B4

Elsewhere by Nealy Blau

"Nealy Blau's Elsewhere represents the wonderful play of possibility between the natural and the artificial. The full-color, analog photographs document diorama in natural history museums, masking through framing and focus the constructed nature of their subject matter. However, the images avoid becoming mere traps of illusion. Instead, they propel the viewer into the exciting and open spaces created by the gaps and gradients existing between the concepts of real and imagined." — from the review by Nicholas Chiarella of Nealy Blau's Elsewhere

The Sound of Two Songs by Mark Power

"I must admit, Michael Wolf's two-volume portrayal of urban planning run amok had me running in circles for a while. I was stymied by the duality, by the muteness of interior and exterior, intimacy and mass, specific and abstract — there seemed to be no reconciling the two until I realized that I could use an old saw to cleave the knot. You know, the one about books and their covers? In this case, it's not true." — from the review by George Slade of Michael Wolf's Hong Kong Inside Outside
