New images from Mark Klett

We are pleased to announce a new portfolio of images from photo-eye Gallery photographer Mark Klett. Time Studies is Klett's experimentation with photography and the passage of time. The beautiful toned silver gelatin prints in this series are strangely surreal — at once crisp and blurry, the sun often appearing in multiple locations. The images are the result of long exposures, capturing time as it elapses in front of the lens. Klett was kind enough to tell us a bit more about the work.

"In practice the moment of any photograph is a fixed length of time corresponding to the camera's exposure. Usually this is instantaneous, often faster than the eye can see. But the camera is also capable of describing events that occur too slowly for the eye to see; and photographs can show us a world that exists virtually unobserved within conventional experience. In the world of the camera, a period of long duration or multiple points in time may exist side by side as the expression of one moment on a single sheet of film." —Mark Klett

Michael Kenna: <i>Japan</i> Michael Kenna: Japan—Signed

First Edition, as new.


We have a few copies of this extraordinarily beautiful Nazraeli book specially priced at $195. Here's a great opportunity to own a First Edition, new copy of this exquisite out-of-print book. It's going for as much as $500 online.

Michael Kenna first travelled to Japan in the mid-80s to organize an exhibition of his work at what was then the Min Gallery in Tokyo. Over the ensuing years, he returned to Japan numerous times, fascinated with the culture of spirituality that is based in the landscape. This stunning book demonstrates Kenna's keen eye and understanding of Japanese aesthetics. The book cloth is a silky red and comes enclosed in a black cloth portfolio.

David Chickey (Radius Books) & Gordon Stettinius (Candela Books): On Book Publishing

Where:
photo-eye Gallery, 376 Garcia Street, Suite A Santa Fe, NM
When: Wednesday, November 7th 6:30-8:30pm
Contact: Melanie McWhorter
Phone: 505.988.5152 x 112
Email: melanie@photoeye.com

photo-eye is pleased to host David Chickey, founder of Radius Books, and Gordon Stettinius, founder of Candela Books + Gallery, for a presentation about photobook publishing. Gordon Stettinius will be Skyped in from New York. Chickey and Stettinius will use two of their recent publications Chris McCaw's Sunburn (Candela, 2012) and Sharon Harper's From Above and Below (Radius, 2012) as examples of the publishing process while expanding on the factors involved in publishing.

David Chickey is a book designer and curator with over 20 years experience in the art business. A graduate of UNC, Chapel Hill and Sussex University, his experience includes work with both the museum and the gallery world — including the St Louis Center for Contemporary Art, the Allene Lapides Gallery, and Sotheby's, London. He is currently coowner of Skolkin+Chickey which provides a full range of design and packaging services to artists, museums, and publishers.

Gordon Stettinius is a photographer and artist and educator living in Richmond, Virginia. Stettinius founded Candela Books in 2010 in order to publish the work of New York photographer Gita Lenz. He opened Candela Books + Gallery in 2011. The thinking at the time was that the book publishing was bringing so many interesting photographers and artists to Candela's attention but unfortunately there are only so many books a small and independent publisher can manage at a time. So, the decision was made to start exhibiting work related to book projects and to do so along with exhibitions by other notable, nationally recognized artists and photographers. The gallery is located in a renovated building in the Downtown Arts District of Richmond, Virginia.

In the 2 years since he quit, as he himself got back out on the road again to shoot, he compiled 276 photographers' answers in the unique book destined to be a classic in photography education.

Caleb Cain Marcus: A Portrait of Ice


"Space and silence occupy Caleb Cain Marcus' soul and he translates those ideas in photographs. His first book dealt with the city at night. His second book, A Portrait of Ice, examines glaciers and how ice translates space and silence. For this book, Cain Marcus forgoes black and white and the urban for color and the ice deserts of Patagonia, Iceland, Alaska and Norway. At first glance, the landscapes seem to be one place. Going through the book a second or third time and examining the mostly vertical pictures, the differences in how the ice appears and how it was seen become clear. " — from Tom Leininger's review of A Portrait of Ice by Caleb Cain Marcus

Ben Krewinkel: A Possible Life


"A Possible Life is a book about an illegal immigrant to the Netherlands. His name is Gualbert and with the photographer Ben Krewinkel, he's the co-author of the book. Gualbert comes from Nigeria and has lived in the Netherlands for the last 10 years. Maybe. Or perhaps he comes from Niger because that's what all his papers are stamped with. Or perhaps his name isn't Gualbert and he's not a migrant because Krewinkel says that reading the book '...as a non-fictional and objective story purely, might be considered naive.' Instead Krewinkel regards the book is a partly fictitious account of an illegal immigrant's life, one told through a collection of personal photographs, letters, conversations and official documents." — from Colin Pantall's review of A Possible Life by Ben Krewinkel
