A Closer Look — Paloma al Aire

"Paloma al Aire is a funny little book. Spiral bound with cardboard covers (the front of which, unfortunately, has a propensity to curl), it is small in size with an oval cutout in the front cover revealing a portrait of a serious looking man. The book has an easy, informal feel, reminiscent of a personal album or scrapbook. Brightly colored pigeons, numbered yet still in a confusing assortment, grace the cover, but the true focus is the unsmiling visage of the man peering through." — from Sarah Bradley's post on photo-eye Blog.

A Closer Look — Sicarios & Interrogations

"In the last few years (and I feel this may be a consequence for many as they reach middle age), I have been thinking about how to do something larger than myself, to make an impact on my community for the better. Considering I am leaning towards a universally philanthropic thought-process and my line of work, I have been thinking a lot lately about activism and photography. I have started to face the uncomfortable nature of the art form and the seemingly conflicting notions of voyeurism verses activism. Is it simply looking or looking with a purpose?" — from Melanie McWhorter's post on photo-eye Blog.

Redheaded Peckerwood by Christian Patterson


"Like the earlier book, Redheaded Peckerwood is devoid of first generation images of people — that is, seen and captured on film or pixel by Patterson himself. But the symbolic associations generated by the catch-all camera are poignant, dense, and, in the present publication, both ominous and awfully human." — George Slade from the review of Redheaded Peckerwood by Christian Patterson

Illuminance by Rinko Kawauchi


"Rinko Kawauchi's Illuminance demonstrates the transcendence of media over message. Her overwhelming, complex volume of images undermines expectation, supplanting it with excitement, as photograph after photograph carries the viewer from simple to sublime, seemingly without effort." — Nicholas Chiarella from the review of Illuminance by Rinko Kawauchi

Shelby Lee Adams: Salt & Truth Shelby Lee Adams: Salt & Truth—Signed
"Shelby Lee Adams first encountered the communities of the Appalachian mountains as a child, while accompanying his doctor uncle on his rounds. In the mid-1970s he started to photograph in the region, using a 4 x 5 camera, gaining and building a special trust among its often impoverished people, who have tended to not always welcome would-be documentarians." — the publisher
