Book of the Week: A Pick by Ed Templeton
USSR 1991 by Keizo Kitajima


"Lately I have been leafing through USSR 1991 by Keizo Kitajima. It's filled with beautiful Kodachrome photographs, rich in color, of Russia and its people right at its turning point. The times were changing fast and this Japanese photographer was there to see and capture these moments frozen in time 22 years ago. It's an amazing time capsule. The book is also lavishly made with great attention to detail, a slipcase, multiple fold-outs, various paper stocks."
— Ed Templeton

 photo-eye Book Reviews


Antony Cairns: LDN2

"Walking around the city, any city, it's easy to be distracted and not see the buildings, especially at night. The lights shimmer and divert our attention. The ghostly afterglow of neon signs, forelornly lit office buildings and the endless strips of flourescent. They demarcate the night. Antony Cairns' LDN2 is an odd architectural record. A metallic hallucinatory fever dream of London at night. Gone are the romantically lit city streets. Instead, light, fog and chemical drips become architectural forces — imposing themselves in from all sides, overriding the buildings and industrial alleyways." — from Adam Bell's review of LDN2 by Antony Cairns

Michael Wolf: Small God, Big City

"In this new volume [Michael Wolf's] focus turns to public shrines honoring the Earth God, a deity of fairly pedestrian standing — knee-high, and seldom taller than a meter, to judge from the photographs... Crowded, narrow passages probably create another kind of exigency determining the scale of the depicted shrines. Actually, the ethnographic and anthropological aspects of the Earth God, considered in an introductory essay by Lee Ho Yin and Lynne D. DiStefano, enhance a visual investigation that fascinates on its own terms. To grasp this figure's function and his position among Chinese household gods is to derive measurable benefit from the information accumulated in the photographs." — from George Slade's review of Small God, Big City by Michael Wolf

Stand By from Sputnik Photos
Stand By is one of the best examples of the strengths of a collective showcasing a collective's ability to take on a huge project with consideration to its multifaceted implications by approaching it from a variety of angles. An investigation into Belarus national identity, seven photographers look into reasons why Belarus is called "the last dictatorship in Europe."

Spleen and Ideal by Tiane Doan Na Champassak from Morel Books
Tiane Doan Na Champassak's Spleen and Ideal is an exploration of concepts of gender and sexuality as experienced in Thailand. Mixing seductive portraits with contextual images of palm trees, overpasses and signs of popular Thai go-go clubs with names like Super Pussy and Kitten Club, the beautiful images give entrance to an intimate world dreamy world.

A Partial Eclipse by Martin Boyce from MACK
Martin Boyce's A Partial Eclipse is a delicate and atmospheric collection of photographs framed by the story of a lost camera, though the photographs themselves do not so much create a narrative as a sense of mood and space. Notable for their strange grey overcast tones, a dim and familiar type of light that is psychologically evocative, A Partial Eclipse is yet another gorgeous MACK production.
