 photo-eye Book Reviews
Brian Finke: Construction

"Brian Finke's trademark bright colors and dramatic light are at play in his new book Construction. Finke is interested in the daily drama of the work site. He finds workers up in the sky traversing narrow beams and barren soon to be office floors. When the workers are on the ground structures and equipment tower over them. Finke's sophisticated framing and use of light is heightened in this book; he is clearly a photographer working at the top of his game. Getting closer to the workers brings the viewer into a claustrophobic closeness. Finke takes the viewer onto the work site, next to the action." — from Tom Leininger's review of Construction by Brian Finke

Jan Dirk van der Burg: Censorship Daily

"Censorship Daily is a bit of a collaborative project between photographer and publisher Jan Dirk van der Burg, his journalist friend Thomas Erdbrink who is a longtime resident of Tehran and subscribes to the 'Islamic' edition of the NRC Handelsblad newspaper, and a number of anonymous Iranian civil servants tasked with censoring unacceptable images. The large format paperback that nearly approximates the size of the actual newspaper is full of a curated selection of van der Burg's favorites from Erdbrink's collection." — from Sarah Bradley's review of Censorship Daily by Jan Dirk van der Burg

Daniel Naude: Animal Farm

"Although seemingly self-evident, the domestication of wild animals was central to our survival as a species and development of modern civilization. Despite its long history and importance, this axiom is often forgotten as all but a few animals have disappeared from most of our daily lives. Each species varies, but dogs were gradually domesticated roughly 15,000 years ago. Biologist Raymond Coppinger argues that it is likely dogs were domesticated through a variety of factors — namely their attraction to the refuse discarded from early agricultural settlements, their subsequent close proximity to humans, the slow persistent push of evolution, and human's desire for animal companionship." — from Adam Bell's review of Animal Farm by Daniel Naude

Robert Adams: Prayers in an American Church Robert Adams: Prayers in an American Church

"Each of us welcomes quiet. As a private person, a citizen, and a photographer, these are some of the words I find myself remembering and repeating." —Robert Adams

"This small volume, with just 12 quoted prayers and 17 photographs by the artist, is among the most personal of Robert Adams's books. 'It is an old man's book,' he says, 'and reflects my conviction that art and religion come from the same sense of dependence.' Printed in a limited edition of just 1,000 hand-numbered copies, this gentle, wise and unassuming book is our eighth publication of Adams's work. It is printed on our special uncoated art paper and bound in a subdued green cloth. A wonderful companion book to the artist's earlier title Bodhisattva, Prayers in an American Church is a welcome addition to the literature available on this important American artist." —the publisher READ MORE

VERVE Gallery of Photography, photo-eye Bookstore & Photolucida Present

Friday, March 1, 2013, 5-7pm, at photo-eye Bookstore

VERVE Gallery of Photography, in collaboration with photo-eye Bookstore and Photolucida presents a book signing for Gallery Artist Jennifer B Hudson's new publication, Medic. This event will take place at photo-eye Bookstore on Friday, March 1, 5-7pm and the artist will be present.

As part of Photolucida's Critical Mass 2011, Jennifer B Hudson was awarded the prestigious monograph award and Photolucida published Jennifer's book Medic. Over 200 jurors participate in Critical Mass, the juror pool comprised of 200 international photography curators, gallery owners, museum directors, publishers, and editors.

Medic is a snapshot of physically or spiritually ill humans and their relationships with themselves and others in times of need — the images are metaphors exploring introspection, empathy and compassion. Jennifer Hudson explains:

"The work began wholly on one sentence whispered by my husband while we endured a deeply unsettling time together. He held my hand, lay close to me and said softly, "I just wish I could take the pain from your body, and put it into mine." I have been fortunate to know incredible love all my life, but at that moment I became suddenly and intensely aware of the magnificent power that exists between people who care for one another. When I was anxious and fighting to fall asleep each night, I began to invent miracle machines; contraptions that heal, deliver hope, legacy, remedy, and redemption. Each image from Medic is a thoughtful invention, strange and tender, revealing facets of the delicate human heart... In the making of this work, I sought to begin to understand some of the most rare and beautiful relationships in the world, to expose their most frail, vulnerable moments, times of great intensity, and most cherished inner workings."
