Publish Your Photography Book by Darius D. Himes and Mary Virginia Swanson

"Two of the most well known names in photography book publishing and promotion have joined their considerable forces in a new book about publishing photography, called simply enough, Publish Your Photography Book. In their brief introduction, Darius Himes & Mary Virginia Swanson clearly outline the text with their stated aim: "to crack open the door to the publishing world and lead the reader through an exploration of this rich sphere." In short, they expose what it takes to be entrepreneurial in selling your book idea to a publisher and then in bringing your work to the broadest possible audience." — from the review by Mary Anne Redding of Darius D. Himes and Mary Virginia Swanson's Publish Your Photography Book

As We Are by Just Loomis

"There are a couple of stunning photographs in this book. And some stunningly lovely, and some equally unlovely, people in the photographs in this book. And some remarkable situations, including costumed Danielle hanging from her knee on a Las Vegas costume rack, the Birdman of Santa Monica and a captured seagull in Ventura, and a provocative set of Pasadena roommates." — from the review by George Slade of Just Loomis' As We Are

Stillings also describes the planning and the frequently difficult process of taking a photo essay project from concept to realization.

Additionally, photographs from Stillings' Bridge At Hoover Dam project were just featured in a Los Angeles Times Magazine article about the bridge.

Colette Campbell-Jones — Stories from Underground

Opening Friday, June 3rd, 2011 5-7pm
On Display through July 30th, 2011
photo-eye Gallery is located at 376-A Garcia, Santa Fe, NM 87501

Stories from Underground, by Colette Campbell-Jones are visual reconstructions of oral histories from the coal miners of South Wales. Campbell-Jones was inspired to retell the stories of this vanishing culture after spending time with her husband's family in the small town of Ton Petre.

Using a self described "hybrid process" combining documents with manipulated digital imagery, Campbell-Jones is able to interweave the various stories and histories of the Welsh mining communities into individual narratives. The image in Stories from Underground reference drawing and printmaking process and appear almost as if they could be charcoal drawings.

To view more work by Colette Campbell-Jones visit photo-eye Gallery here.

Miyako Ishiuchi: Suidobashi--Tokyo Shika Daigaku (Suidobashi - Tokyo Dental College)--SIGNED Miyako Ishiuchi: Suidobashi--Tokyo Shika Daigaku (Suidobashi - Tokyo Dental College)--SIGNED
A beautiful homage to history and spirit of this Tokyo institution. An uncommon title (none found in OCLC, presumably made available only on the campus). Comparable in every way to Ishiuchi's renowned books, Apartment (1978), Yokosuka Story(1979), and Endless Night (1981).
As Vartanian and Kaneko write in Japanese Photobooks of the 1960s and 1970s, Ishiuchi's photos are meant to "express the rough texture, to communicate the feeling of a world" and to suggest a sensation of "coming into contact with one's own universe." Moriyama, they tell us, used the term "scratching against reality" to describe this experience.
