A Closer Look — Happy Birthday To You

"Happy Birthday To You is the product of photographer and multimedia artist Anouk Kruithof's residency at Het Vijfde Seizoen in the Netherlands. Located on the site of a psychiatric institution, artists are encouraged to work or interact with the patients over their three month stay. Considering this, the organization has some understandable reservations about photography — a straight forward documentary project could easily fall into the realm of something exploitative, creating space between patient and artist." — Sarah Bradley

Gustavo Ortiz: Hernán CHIMENEAS (Chimneys) Gustavo Ortiz: Hernán CHIMENEAS (Chimneys)
"Mexico City-born photographer Agustin Jimenez (1901-1974) was at the center of his country's flourishing avant-garde, which emerged in the 1920s when international photographers like Edward Weston and Tina Modotti began to travel extensively there and relationships between the local and foreign artists led to aesthetic breakthroughs on both sides. Jimenez is known for crafting an indigenous version of Romantic Pictorialism very akin to Weston's. Jimenez also collaborated closely with the Mexican illustrated press throughout the 1920s and 30s, and in the latter decade became involved with the country's burgeoning motion picture industry — first as a still photographer and then as a cinematographer, in collaboration with such seminal figures as Sergei Eisenstein, Adolfo Best Maugard and Fernando de Fuentes."—see Agustin Jimenez: Memoirs of the Avant-Garde, from Editorial RM

from the book Natural Habitats

Natural Habitats by Massimo Vitali

"Massimo Vitali's latest book, Natural Habitats, contains 70 photographs created between 2004 and 2009. The book is large enough that the color reproductions are approximately 11x14"; it's almost as if they were pulled directly off of gallery walls, and the detail they contain is worth the size of the book.

The photos in Natural Habitats are from multiple countries and are of the leisure class engaged in recreational activities at the border of water and land." — from the review by David Ondrik of Natural Habitats

Gerard Fieret (1924-2009) by Gerard Fieret

"The biographical blurb about Gerard Fieret on the back of the new monograph bearing his name tells the story of his pictures: "...one of the most wayward oeuvres put forth by 20th-century Dutch photography..." As someone who is not overly familiar with Dutch photography in general, I was unsure of what to expect from the book. After going through the book I initially found the phrase "wayward oeuvre" to be generous." — from the review by Tom Leininger of Gerard Fieret (1924-2009)

David Pollock: Fertile Geometry David Pollock: Fertile Geometry—Signed
"Farming is often viewed through the lens of nostalgia and romanticized as a lost way of life that was more connected to nature. The farm fields were a fruitful way for me to situate the human in nature because it is within this interface that questions arise regarding our place in the natural world. Farmland is an exotic territory for most of us, despite the fundamental nature of farming as a precondition of our culture. As much as the idea of wilderness implies no human presence, these anthropogenic landscapes are reminders of our inescapable and constant interaction with the natural world." excerpt from introduction, David Pollock, Fertile Geometry, 2011
