DAVID J. CAROL attended the School of Visual Arts and The New School for Social Research where he studied under Lisette Model. He is the author of three photography books. His first monograph was 40 Miles of Bad Road, a ten year retrospective of his personal work from 1993 through 2003. His follow-up book All My Lies are True... was a collection of photographs taken throughout his twenty plus year career. Both books were winners in the PDN Photo Annual's Best book of the year in 2004 and 2010. His latest Non-Book "This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things!" was released last spring with a lecture and book signing at The Center for Alternative Photography in New York City. His photographs and books are in the permanent collections of many museums and corporations, including The International Center of Photography, New York, NY, The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, TX and The Minneapolis Institute of Art, Minneapolis, Mn . David's work has been represented by or shown at the Stephen Daiter Gallery, Chicago, IL, Bonni Benrubi Gallery, New York, NY, The National Arts Club, New York, NY and the John Cleary Gallery, Houston, TX. David is the Director of Photography at CBS Outdoor as well as a weekly contributor for Emerging Photographer Magazine and a writer for RangeFinder Magazine with a monthly column called Photo Finish that features the personal work of professional photographers.

 Photographer's Showcase
Photographer's Showcase: Kevin Erskine

We are pleased to release a new portfolio of Kevin Erskine's stunning storm photography on the Photographer's Showcase. Erskine's color photographs capture the enormous power and beauty of these awe-inspiring events. Storm chasing across the American Southwest and Plains, Kevin Erskine is the pseudonym of a celebrated Dutch filmmaker and photographer. "My fascination with big storms started in my childhood during the winterstorms in Holland. During a trip in the US, I teamed up with renowned stormchaser Tim Marshall. From that moment on I was totally addicted and obsessed with the beauty of severe weather," he says.

 photo-eye Auctions
Before Gypsies put him on the map of international photography, some of Koudelka's earliest professional work as a photographer was for the avant-garde theater company, Divadlo za branou (Theater Beyond the Gate). Many of these pictures appeared in the journal Divadlo; on offer is a complete run from 1964 that situates this work in its original context. An amazing find for the Koudelka completist (we know you're out there!). Also on offer this week, the complete Collection Huit series; created by famed editor Robert Delpire. It features books by Robert Doisneau, Henri Cartier Bresson and George Rodger.

From Japan, an important early protest book from Hiroshi Hamaya (later, the first Asian member of the Magnum Agency), Record of Anger and Sadness. On a rather lighter note, Tad Wakamatsu's Ipy Girl Ipy is an absolute classic in the micro-genre of Japanese psychedelic-erotica; we have a rare DOUBLE SIGNED copy, with signatures from both Wakamatsu and his model (and later wife) Haruko Wanibuchi. As usual, Eric talks about some of this week's featured items in his weekly presentation—be sure to check it out along with the rest of our auction listings! Thanks for looking!

Don't Forget: All books shown in the Post-Auction Sale Inventory are available at the low opening bid prices shown!

The Unphotographable

"Despite its complex indexical nature, photography allows us to document and record the world unlike any other medium. However, the lens not only captures, but also transforms the world around us. It makes visible things and phenomena both seen and unseen. The unique, alchemical quality of photography to reveal and transform its subjects is one of its chief delights. The Unphotographable, the latest anthology and catalog by the Fraenkel Gallery, gathers together a collection of vernacular, scientific and artistic images that all in one way or another attempt to capture what lies outside the power of the lens." — from Adam Bell's review of The Unphotographable by various photographers

Andrew Moore: Cuba

"It's hard to imagine a prevailing depiction of Cuban culture from without that does not hinge upon the idea of access. Closing off and opening up happen ideologically, geographically, architecturally there, and this notion provides the conceptual framework for American Andrew Moore's photographs of Cuba made over a fourteen year period. His new volume from Damiani is billed as a refined and expanded version of the 2002 book, Inside Havana that focused largely on interior views of domestic and semi-private spaces, with the occasional jaunt into the street. Throughout this ongoing series, Moore utilized traditional, highly formal pictorial techniques to establish the dual directionality of looking in and looking out. In image after image in this oversize book, a doorway, window or corridor establishes a metaphor of permission and refusal, intimacy and intrusion." — from Karen Jenkins' review of Cuba by Andrew Moore

The first, second and third installments of this series can be found on the photo-eye Blog with some titles still available.

 Book of the Week
Asger Carlsen: <i>Hester</i> Asger Carlsen: Hester—Signed

"Following the phenomenal success of Wrong, what could possibly topple the notion of truth and further question the photographic medium with all its tongue in cheek gusto and humorous horror. To answer, Asger brings us Hester, his honest take on the classic theme of the female nude.

If the traditional nude occasionally intends to bare and reveal a final and ideal form through ad hoc stance or sculptural immortality, Asger revises the study of the female form to ultimately reveal the evolving terrain of photography and its standards of aesthetics and morality." —the publisher READ MORE
