photo-eye Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of photographs by John Delaney and Svjetlana Tepavcevic. John Delaney's silver gelatin photographs depict an ancient Kazakh nomad tradition of hunting with golden eagles. His portraits of the birds of prey with their handlers capture a striking relationship between man and animal. Svjetlana Tepavcevic gathers the seedpods of various trees and plant-life and photographs her finds in her studio. By making the small large, Tepavcevic's images illuminate the strange beauty of the natural world.

 photo-eye Book Reviews
Andrew Phelps: Haboob

"The emblem, or key image, of Haboob appears in a photograph placed early in the book's sequence. A metal cut-out frieze — the rusty remnant of some signage or decorative architectural element — shows four (presumably wild) horses galloping across an open plain, snow-capped mountains looming in the background. It is evocative of freedom, the romance of the wilderness and, in the context of Phelps' book, the dream of the West. The epic landscape it describes no longer exists here, however, except by an act of imaginative effort." — from Faye Robson's review of Haboob by Andrew Phelps

William Klein: ABC

"Glancing through the pages of ABC one can quickly get a sense of Klein's frenetic and inquisitive eye. These qualities are particularly evident within a series of lively New York street portraits from 1956, which depict an assortment of gregarious characters. The sense of dialogue between the Kline and his subjects is palpable. Whether by accident or provocation he seems highly proficient at getting people to perform for him and on rare occasions they also try to hide. In one photo a smiling face is pressed expectantly against the glass of a shop window and in another, a hand blocks a face in a gesture of anonymity. Regardless of the reaction Klein keeps moving on down the street, ready to focus in on his next target." — from John Mathews' review of ABC by William Klein

 Great Little Photobooks Under $30
"Over the last several months, I've been writing about great little photobooks $30 and under. For this installment, I'd like to shed light on three new magazines we have in stock: Ain't Bad Magazine #4 (Grand Illusion), Ain't Bad Magazine #5 (Surface), and European Photography No. 92. Each of the magazines contain the works of multiple artists, so if you are looking for new and exciting photographic work, these are some great titles to consider." — Erin Azouz

John Cohen on Roscoe Holcomb and The High & Lonesome Sound

We were delighted to have John Cohen visit photo-eye and give a fascinating talk on his new book from Steidl, The High & Lonesome Sound. Cohen recounts the origins of his project and meeting Holcomb, who was to become a prominent figure in Appalachian folk music. Cohen also mentions how his access to The Beats helped fund his initial trip to Kentucky, the process of publishing the book with renowned photobook publisher Gerhard Steidl, and finishes by playing a few songs on a borrowed banjo.

Brigitte Carnochan: <EM>Floating World</EM> Brigitte Carnochan: Floating World—Signed

"The Japanese subject matter of photographer Brigitte Carnochan's new work is the ideal backdrop for the complementary poems, all written by women, that synchronize with her lightly tinted color photographs. While her distinct visions are personal, Carnochan successfully renders the universal in her photographs." —the publisher READ MORE
