Book of the Week: A Pick by Ron Jude
The River Winter by Jem Southam


"Jem Southam's understated, elegant book from late last year invites us to slow down and really look at things. Consisting of photographs shot over the course of a single winter in Devon, The River Winter chronicles the quiet drama of a microcosm of nature succumbing to frost, ice and snow, and then reemerging to start the process over again. This is my favorite kind of photobook — one that gains new meaning every time I pick it up. Southam's keen ability to look at the land without romanticizing or moralizing allows us an unencumbered entry point into the unfolding processes of time and season. Executed with the highest design and production standards, The River Winter is a reassurance that restrained, thoughtful books are still fundamentally important to the form."

Rinko Kawauchi: Ametsuchi

"In 2007, Rinko Kawauchi travelled to the city of Aso to witness the ritual crop burning (or yakihata) of the region's farm and grasslands. Largely replaced with chemical means of fertilization, the almost 1300 year old tradition of crop burning have a unique place in local culture. Mesmerized and haunted by the dramatic flames and rituals, Kawauchi returned over the years to capture the transformed landscape. Channeling smoke, flames, earth and the cosmos, Ametsuchi captures this annual ritual, connecting earth, fire and sky and powerfully evoking the cycle of life and death in a beautifully designed book." — from Adam Bell's review of Ametsuchi by Rinko Kawauchi

David Maisel: Black Maps

"It was 1969 when Lake Erie caught fire due to negligence and mishandling of pollutants from industrial plants that lined its shores. David Maisel was only eight years old when he watched the footage of the disaster on television. This early childhood memory was a key component in shaping the imagination behind the seven projects Maisel photographed from 1985-2007, compiled for the first time in Black Maps. Together the projects present a cohesive, larger body of work about the effects of rapid urbanization and the depletion of the earth's natural, non-renewable resources." — from Erin Azouz's review of Black Maps by David Maisel

Elin O'Hara Slavick: After Hiroshima

"The cover image of Elin O'Hara Slavick's new book, After Hiroshima is perfectly chosen. It's a cyanotype printed on book cloth. White flashes light up the blue page, falling in and out of focus. There are larger dots of fuzzy white mixed with sharper round pieces of debris that look like a photograph of a supernova. It's a beautiful image, even though it has an air of violence to it that is conjured from the title of the book, After Hiroshima. See the picture, read those words and already we are wondering what this picture could represent — it's clear it's a remnant picture but what of?" — from Colin Pantall's review of After Hiroshima by Elin O'Hara Slavick
