Photographer's Showcase Portfolio and Interview: Ryann Ford

"I started noticing these cute little roadside tables along the different highways. . . . a lot of them looked really old, some had cool mid-century architecture, some were really quirky, like they were shaped like a teepee or an oil derrick, or had a theme to them depending on the region we were in. One night I decided to Google 'rest areas' to see what they looked like in other areas of the country. I came across a news article detailing the closure of many of them due to budget cuts, and they weren't just being closed, but demolished. I had considered doing a photo project on them before, but this was the deciding factor." —Ryann Ford's interview on the photo-eye Blog

We are happy to release a portfolio of images from Ryann Ford, Rest Stops - Vanishing Relics of the American Roadside, on the Photographer's Showcase.

Leading off this week is a lot of four signed books by controversial photographer Antoine D'Agata, whose visceral images of the nether worlds of sex, drugs and self-destruction have earned him comparisons to Larry Clark and Nan Goldin, with whom he studied at ICP in New York. (Though the more apt comparison would be to the writer William T. Vollman, with whom he shares what the Paris Review called a "unique engagement of his own personality with his work.")

Two very different takes on our erotic drives come to us courtesy of the late Dutch photographer Sanne Sannes in his 1972 classic, The Face of Love and Bettina Rheims elegantly raunchy Morceaux Choisis.

Also on the block, Colors Cacas [Sh*T]: A Coffee-Table Book a somewhat tongue-in-cheek look at, yes, poop. It is included in Parr and Badger, The Photobook: A History, Vol. II in their chapter titled, 'The D�sseldorf Tendency.' Not surprisingly, it is also the current favorite of Jacob, my four year old son!

Other listings this week include signed books by Robert Frank, Cindy Sherman, Constantine Manos and Julian Schnabel. Be sure to check out Eric's weekly presentation where he opines on a few of this week's selections. Thanks as always for looking!!

 Interview�with�the�Artist
Interview: Jon Naiman on Familiar Territory

"I wanted to find a way to shift the ground just enough to not only look at the subjects (the people and farm animals) but also change the dynamic. The fact that the animals often live only a short distance away from their owners' homes made me wonder if I might collapse this boundary. The distance is short, but the thin boundaries separating the human spaces from animal spaces are buttressed by strong taboos, such as those separating the civilized and the wild, the clean and the unclean." — Jon Naiman's interview on the photo-eye Blog

A selection of prints from Familiar Territory can be viewed in Jon Naiman's Photographer's Showcase Portfolio.

Mike Brodie: A Period of Juvenile Prosperity

"The beautiful and romantic photographs of natty, if dirty, young vagabond train hoppers — cultural outsiders living a life of freedom most dare only fantasize about — are captivating. As is Brodie himself. He hasn't simply documented the strange and lovely creatures of this life; he's one of them — thus providing the authenticity the art world often craves." — from Sarah Bradley's review of A Period of Juvenile Prosperity by Mike Brodie

Edited by Vincent Berni�re and Mariel Primois: Punk Press

"Punk is unpolished. In fact that's sort of the point of it. Grainy half-tones from old magazines bleeding into the gutter are completely appropriate. String a few hundred together in herky-jerky order, number the pages by hand, and you've got Punk Press the book, a wonderful assortment of posters, essays, rants, and clippings from old punk magazines circa 1968-1980." — from Blake Andrews' review of Punk Press edited by Vincent Berni�re and Mariel Primois

Terry Evans: <em>Prairie Stories</em> Terry Evans: Prairie Stories—Signed

"The small Kansas town of Matfield Green and the surrounding prairie hills are the focus of the latest extended project from acclaimed photographer and Kansas native Terry Evans (born 1944). Today, only one commercial establishment-a bar/caf�-remains in business, but people continue to call the town home and work the land. Eloquent yet resolutely unsentimental, her images span 20 years in the life of this town, and capture the beauty and endurance of the prairie and its dedicated inhabitants." —the publisher READ MORE
