An Interview with Ken Rosenthal

This year marked the first retrospective exhibition for Ken Rosenthal, and with it, his first book, an archive of ten years of photographic projects — Seen and Not Seen, Not Dark Yet, Ghosts, A Dream Half Remembered, Missing and Days Between. Ken Rosenthal: Photographs 2001-2009 contains 14 of his most iconic images from these projects, several of which photo-eye has been proud to represent on the Photographer's Showcase for many years. Rosenthal's much anticipated publication was selected as one of photo-eye's Best Books of 2011 by Susan Burnstine and Gordon Stettinius.

On this occasion, we've asked Rosenthal to tell us a bit more about this series and how he went about making it, putting together his exhibition catalogue, and the process of moving away from the signature style that previously characterized his work.

A Closer Look — Is This Place Great or What

"From Aperture and The Cleveland Museum of Art, Is This Place Great Or What by Brian Ulrich is the publication of his ten-year Copia project, documenting the consumer-centric atmosphere of contemporary America. The project grew from Ulrich's curiosity at whether the 9-11 request of George W. Bush for Americans go out and shop to support the country was truly taken to heart." — Sarah Bradley

from the book Salt & Truth
from the book Salt & Truth


Salt & Truth by Shelby Lee Adams


"The Appalachian hollers of Eastern Kentucky are a restorative realm for Shelby Lee Adams and photography a tonic. Having dwelled there as a child, he has returned to photograph for nearly forty years. Adams reveres the rural tempo and traditions of this place, fueled by his belief that such an authentic, "salt of the earth" culture should be preserved, both in image and fact." —Karen Jenkins from the review of Salt & Truth by Shelby Lee Adams

Notes from a Quiet Life by Robert Benjamin


"What does it mean to be a 'photographer'? Today it can be as simple as making a picture with a mobile phone, or a digital camera or it can mean that you are dedicated to a particular process that is no longer in the main stream. It does not necessarily mean that one is interested in making intentional images where the everyday is changed into something more. Robert Benjamin is one of those photographers who cares about the image more than any of the external recognition of being a photographer." — Tom Leininger from the review of Notes from a Quiet Life by Robert Benjamin

"Award-winning photographer Rania Matar's A Girl and Her Room reveals the lives of girls from two disparate worlds —the U.S. and Lebanon. Set in the girls' bedrooms — which range from spartan cleanliness to chaotic disarray — these portraits offer an insider's perspective of not just who these young women are, but the physical spaces that prove to be extensions of their identities." — the publisher Preorder signed copies of A Girl and Her Room due April 2012.

Bernhard Fuchs: Farms Bernhard Fuchs: Farms
"Bernhard Fuchs' latest artist book presents photographs of farms near his childhood home in the north of Austria. In the course of recent walks in the area around Helfenberg, Fuchs was confronted with the massive transformations in its farming communities over the past few decades. Remotely located in the hilly landscape of the M�hlviertel, these farms are mainly mixed-farming operations, determined by the areas's arable fields, woodland and grassland for the grazing of livestock." — the publisher READ MORE
