Hans Bol's Paradise City portfolios, Dynamic Surfaces and Landscape/Human Interaction

"Of vital importance in my work have been my experiences in the stone quarries in and around Carrara (Italy). The photographs I made there, between 1985 and 2011, should be seen as a metaphor for the way human beings deal with their environment. I visited that part of the Apennines for years on end; although the process that takes place there is one of destruction, I developed a love-hate relationship with the area. Since the process itself is irreversible, the mountains cut into pieces beyond repair and thus the environment damaged forever, one should strongly condemn. However, in this process of destruction I also found a lot of intimacy, beauty, gentleness and history." — Hans Bol

Timothy H. O'Sullivan: The King Survey Photographs


"Timothy H. O'Sullivan occupies a complex and fascinating position with photographic history. Although much of his early background remains unknown, his work as part of several U.S. geological surveys in the mid to later 1800s helped establish him as one of the most important photographers of the 19th century." — Adam Bell from the review of Timothy H. O'Sullivan: The King Survey Photographs by Timothy H. O'Sullivan

Marisa Portolese: Antonia's Garden / Le Jardin d'Antonia Marisa Portolese: Antonia's Garden / Le Jardin d'Antonia
"Antonia's Garden by Marisa Portolese is a seductive series of staged family portraits, landscapes and still-lifes. While implicating the fragility of life and family dynamics, these photographs weave together a beautiful series that speak to universal themes of loss and isolation. This series also displays an underlying sense of curiosity and resilience that makes for a powerful body of work." — from photo-eye's New Arrivals Newsletter

Chris Coekin: The Altogether Chris Coekin: The Altogether
"The Altogether is the latest book by Chris Coekin. The photographs were produced in a factory that began manufacturing copper wire in 1834. Unfortunately, the factory recently closed and the entire workforce was made redundant. The Altogether is a multi-layered project that investigates the notions of art, work and struggle. The book comprises three series of images and is accompanied by a seven-inch vinyl record that includes two audio tracks: Days at The Factories and CuSO4 Shuffle." — the publisher
