A Closer Look — Stone by Stone and Farms

"Photography, along with the numerous books and documentaries on the subject, was a catalyst for me to further consider what I consumed and how I consumed it. In contrast to the somewhat aggressive and political work I chose for the Fraction exhibit, two recently published projects, Bernhard Fuchs' Farms and Taj Forer's Stone By Stone, take a more subtle approach to the subject of food production and our relationship to the resources of the land." — Melanie McWhorter

A Closer Look — The Place We Live

"One of my top 5 photography books of all time is Summer Nights Walking. The new reprint by Aperture is incredibly gorgeous. I continually pick this book up, and it reminds me of nights walking through the dense neighborhoods of my childhood. This book always sucks me in — it's dangerous to pick up on a busy day. While not as enticing, The Place We Live brings me back to the full scope of Adams' career. Its beautiful reproduction quality and large size fit well with the elegant and simple design, but elegant and simple is also at the heart of Adams' images." — Antone Dolezal

from the book Pontiac
from the book Pontiac


Pontiac by Gerry Johansson


"I must leave it to a different expert to say whether the car on the cover of Pontiac, with its solid body and custom wheels, is the namesake of this Michigan town and its now-defunct auto brand. Regardless, it's a funny sort of portrait, proud but behind the times, an uneasy emblem of a beleaguered industry town on the decline." —Karen Jenkins from the review of Pontiac by Gerry Johansson

from the book The Altogether


The Altogether by Chris Coekin


"'The Altogether is inspired by manufacturing and the manual workers who make and produce, craftsman who are skilled and work with their hands,' says Chris Coekin of his latest journey through English working class culture.

Part of that craftsmanship is found in the book itself. Every detail is thought out and included so it connects into a narrative whole. First off, the book comes with a foil-blocked embossed cover of a man pulling on a rope. It's chalk white against coal black cloth, a touch-and-feel introduction to a book in which tactile, visual and auditory combine to perfect effect." —Colin Pantall from the review of The Altogether by Chris Coekin

 Book of the Week
Claudine Doury: Sasha Claudine Doury: Sasha
"The advent of womanhood is unavoidable whether the ceremonies surrounding this conversion are the same or not; if the girl makes it through adolescence, the woman is inevitable. Sasha, one such young woman, is undergoing a rapid transition. Her mother, photographer Claudine Doury, watches through the camera and we are all witness to what Doury selectively chronicles: the adventures of the child, not so young, but close to the completion of her childish follies. The forest surrounds Sasha and her cohorts from the late summer into the fall of the year, from green to brown, from alive to dying." — Melanie McWhorter
