Chris McCaw: Sunburn

"The photographs of Chris McCaw (born 1971) are produced with various hand-built view cameras as big as 30 by 40 inches, which are equipped with large aerial lenses designed to allow a maximum amount of light to pass through. Using large paper negatives, McCaw makes very long exposures ranging from several hours to a full day, which result in solarized final images. Besides the attractive neo-primitive qualities of his landscape imagery, the concentrated sunlight passing through the large optical elements actually scorches an etched path across the surface of the paper, rending open the charred skies to hint at a brighter light behind our sun." —the publisher READ MORE

Beata Szparagowska: Hide & Seek

"Hide & Seek is the product of two years photographing creators of performing art at L'L in Brussels. The book should be the normal mix of theatre photography; the onstage-offstage mix that centers on the personality of the performers and their pre-performance rituals. With Hide & Seek, Beata Szparagowska goes beyond this theatrical literality and produces something quite different. She mixes the staged with the preparatory and the theatrical, adding elements of the macabre to create her own photographic performance piece." — from Colin Pantall's review of Hide & Seek by Beata Szparagowska
