Book of the Week: A Pick by Svetlana Bachevanova
We Are Still Here by Dick Bancroft


"...We Are Still Here: A Photographic History of the American Indian Movement makes much of [Dick] Bancroft's archive available for the first time. We Are Still Here provides an inside look at the movement that fundamentally changed the relationship between the United States and the Indian tribes. The book both documents the movement and continues AIM's mission by reminding the viewer that Native Americans are still here and still face discrimination and hardship, that AIM continues to inspire and support those who seek justice for Native Americans.

"Half activism, half photography, We Are Still Here should be in every school library, so our children know the story of the brave man and women of AIM who stood for their nation and fought complacency and indifference. That the first and most important right every human has is the right to fight for his rights and the rights of others. This is what Dick Bancroft did and We Are Still Here is a testimony to that commitment." — Svetlana Bachevanova

Jos de Gruyter and Harald Thys: Objects as Friends

"Jos de Gruyter & Harald Thys' Objects as Friends reveals not only affinities but also breakdowns in relation between objects. The book is assembled in a straightforward manner, composed of around 300 images, each of a unique juxtaposition of objects. The objects are photographed against a gray wall on a drab cement surface coated in white dust. Some objects sit in a tensioned balance; most lean or stand together like friends and colleagues. Some immerse one another in coincidence of form. There are pairs, trios, and larger families of items. Some of these combinations feel like plausible representatives of the everyday: the contents of a desk drawer or a cabinet under the sink." — from Nicholas Chiarella's review of Objects as Friends by Jos de Gruyter and Harald Thys

Martin Kollar: Field Trip

"Kollar takes the reader through an unexpected vision of Israel. When going through the book the first time it felt like the pictures were made in this region, but without captions or a forward, it feels a bit confused. Recognizable pictures of Israel are not initially evident. The book is part of a larger series by 12 photographers exploring Israel and the West Bank with the goal of creating a diversity of images rather than a single view of this highly charged place. Learning of the context after viewing the book helps to answer some of the questions the Kollar is posing. A lack of captions or forward propels the viewer into this place that seems familiar and strange at the same time — a version of life between the major news events." — from Tom Leininger's review of Objects as Friends by Martin Kollar

Where's the Monkey by David J. Carol
"Where's the Monkey?" is a new small book featuring David J. Carol's photographs captured around the world. The title comes from Carol's advice for emerging photographers published last summer in PDN. Carol described seeing a Garry Winogrand photograph featuring an interracial couple carrying two children in their arms — an interesting enough photograph on its own, but the children held by the couple aren't human — they're chimpanzees. It's the monkeys that make the image special, providing the metaphor for Carol's advice to finding the monkey.

Black Country Women by Martin Parr
Black Country Women is a wonderfully strange experimental publication commissioned by Multistory, an organization that works with outstanding artists to make projects about life in Sandwell, UK. Taking the form of a women's magazine, Black Country Women has everything we come to expect from these publications like recipes, fashion spreads, horoscopes, word search and household tips, but also includes short fiction by Margaret Drabble and all photographs have been made by Martin Parr.

Falling from a height by Martijn Berk
Containing thousands of photographs of a single subject, Falling from a height by Martijn Berk is a visual exploration of the conflicting nature of infatuation. Interlacing portraits with contact sheets displaying the obsessive nature of Berk's photographic interest, the photographs show a beautiful young man of twenty sleeping and laying in bed, talking on the phone, showering and relaxing in the quiet moments shared between lovers. Falling from a height was selected as a book of the week by Hannes Wanderer.
