05-06-A-01. 2004 -- Pipo Nguyen-duy
05-06-A-01. 2004 -- Pipo Nguyen-duy

We are happy to present The Garden by Pipo Nguyen-duy on the Photographer's Showcase.

The Garden is a series of photographs taken in a number of abandoned greenhouses in Ohio. Unmaintained and slowly falling apart, these once controlled spaces of human cultivation are slowly being overtaken by the natural world. Unchecked by a human hand, vines, trees and grasses have grown in these once orderly structures — interior spaces once meant to replicate an idealized version of outdoors. With time, these structures are becoming it. They are strange intermediate spaces, originally man-made, now overcome with nature.

View the entire portfolio on the Photographer's Showcase.

For additional information about Pipo Nguyen-duy's work or to acquire a photograph, please contact the gallery at (505) 988-5152 x202 or by email.

Tatsuki Masaru: Decotora Tatsuki Masaru: Decotora

We have a few unsigned copies of this great book that is sure to become a classic. It's 50% off the list price.


"Chromed up, with individual artworks on their panels and lit up like Christmas trees, these Japanese trucks and their proud owners (with sharp eyes for detail), form part of a distinct sub-culture in Japanese society. The full colour photographs, captured by Tatsuki Masaru in a project started in 1998, allow insights both into a personal and intimate world, and a unique aesthetic phenomenon." —the publisher

 photo-eye Book Reviews
Erik Kessels: Album Beauty

"The phrase 'found photography' seems entirely too passive a label for the anonymous images that Eric Kessels has culled from so many antique shops or auction lots and presented anew in Album Beauty. Anyone who shares his enthusiasm for vernacular imagery will recognize some recurring themes among those orphan photos and albums collected within, including the ill-conceived vacation snap, the propped-up baby and the often stilted formal wear by mantelpiece portrait. When found individually, these wayward photographs are fodder for fanciful musings on their path through the world and many echo something of the earnest energy of a runt puppy vying for selection (Pick me!). Discovery of an intact album feels like both a lucky break and a violation of the semi-private aspect of this form. Album Beauty is crafted from both these singular images and unaltered album groupings to delineate Kessels' conception of beauty as particularly manifest in this mode of collection and display." — from Karen Jenkins' review of Album Beauty edited by Erik Kessels

Marten Lange: Another Language

"Another Language by Marten Lange is yet another beautiful MACK title. More so than many other publishers, MACK seems to intimately understand the importance of the book as object and as a vehicle for the presentation of the work. The simple and heavily textured cloth that wraps the boards of Another Language is reminiscent of the plain covers of mid 20th century volumes that lurked under elaborate dust jackets, and stamped with a line drawing of a whirlpool made from a photograph that appears later in the book. It feels like a mysterious little volume. Rich moss colored end paper somehow signals that this book is about nature. It is; but it is also about photography and how our minds work and interpret, finding ways to discuss, parse and wonder at our universe." — from Sarah Bradley's review of Another Language by Marten Lange

Sputnik Photos: Stand By

"Stand By is an anthology of photographs centered on Belarus and the Belarusian national identity. It features the work of nine different photographers from the Sputnik Photo Collective. The book itself is beautifully and sturdily bound; it is a volume of the finest quality (even the black dye of the cover is high quality and does not, like so many "high quality" books smudge or run), but I digress. This collection has so many good qualities; it is an excellent source of factual history, of style, of superb examples for how to frame a photograph, of what good high quality printing can offer, etc." — from Chris Johnson's review of Stand By by Sputnik Photos

Anne Wilkes Tucker: War/Photography Anne Wilkes Tucker: War/Photography

"War/Photography surveys both iconic and newly discovered photographs of war and conflict, from daguerreotypes documenting the Crimean and American Civil Wars to digital images made by soldiers in 21st-century Iraq. Accompanying a landmark exhibition opening at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, it is generously illustrated with over 525 powerful images and includes texts by some of today's most important scholars of war photography. This ambitious book offers a comprehensive investigation of the relationship between photography and armed conflict.

The featured works represent a range of perspectives — from journalists to soldiers to ordinary citizens — and span six continents, yet together they communicate the consummate experience of war: its brutality, humanity, and even humor. The book's essays investigate the immediate impact, dissemination, and historical influence of war photography." —the publisher READ MORE
