 We're Moving!
We're Moving!

We're thrilled to announce that after eight successful years in our 376-A Garcia Street location, photo-eye Gallery will be moving to a great new space in the Railyard Arts District, where many of Santa Fe's finest contemporary galleries are located.

As part of this transition, photo-eye Bookstore will be moving into the current Gallery location. The bookstore will continue showing local and emerging artists in what we are now calling our Bookstore + Project Space at 376-A Garcia Street. On Friday, April 25th, Tony Bonanno's Synergy will open in the 376-A space as the first part of this move.

Appropriately enough, these changes are taking place during our 35th Anniversary year. We've come a long way since we started photo-eye in Austin, Texas in 1979 as a mailorder photobook business, and we've grown in many different ways. Please stay tuned for more details about our exciting move, including the announcement of our first show in our wonderful, new Railyard space.

Thank you for your continued support!

photo-eye is pleased to announce an exhibition of images by Tony Bonanno

Synergy: Studies of the Female Nudes Shot in the Galisteo Basin
Opening Reception: Friday, April 25th, 2014 from 6-8 pm
Exhibition runs through June 6th, 2014
photo-eye Bookstore + Project Space is located at 376-A Garcia Street, Santa Fe NM 87501

photo-eye Books is pleased to host Tony Bonanno: Synergy, an exhibition of the artist's female nude study in the Galisteo Basin. In this new portfolio, Bonanno utilizes the graceful contours of his model Nyika Allen to enhance his portrayal of geologic outcroppings and skies in this arid New Mexico landscape. Bonanno's work is reminiscent of some of the classic images of artists such as Edward Weston, whose photographic portraits of bodies became more about formal qualities of line, texture and shape than the tantalizing qualities often associated with the nude body. Just as some of his artistic predecessors, Bonanno's photographs of Allen also beautifully focus on the contrasts and similarities of the human and natural forms.

Tony Bonanno is an internationally renowned professional photographer based in Santa Fe, New Mexico. His subjects have ranged from the President and First Lady of the United States to indigenous peoples and their cultures, to capturing the raw power, grace, and beauty of western horses in his acclaimed "Hooves & Dust" series. He was the recipient of the prestigious Leo Diehl Award at the Creative Arts Center in Chatham, Massachusetts and was the feature artist at the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History (1990-91). He is a Board member of the NM Chapter of the American Society of Media Photographers and teaches a variety of programs at the Santa Fe Photographic Workshops. Since moving from Cape Cod to Santa Fe over 20 years ago, he has engaged in a range of commercial, documentary, and fine art work including a five-year street photography project in Cuba.

Book of the Week: A Pick by Morten Andersen
Shikishima by Tamiko Nishimura


"As a close follower of some of the Japanese masters of the out of focus blurry style, at some point a bit obsessive also, close to an overdose at times, with the seemingly endless stream of publications coming out during the last years... But last year at the Photobook festival in Kassel I was happy to discover a (for me) new photographer. Of course she was not new at all. But since I had never seen or heard about her before I thought she was a young photographer, but at a closer look there were steam trains, old coke signs etc and in the back it stated early seventies. She is quite close to some of her contemporaries and in Shikishima she takes us on a journey we kind of have been on before with some of her more famous fellow travelers in the are, bure, boke style. It's tilted, sometimes blurry, grainy etc... mostly from a train through some of the more remote regions of Japan in 1969-1972. Not sure if we can talk about a female touch here but there is something. Even if the style and the subject is familiar there is something fresh, free and poetic in there that makes me totally in love with her work! Shikishima was first published in 1973 and if you, like me, didn't catch the train back then I recommend you do it now with this brand new modest but beautiful rerelease from Tokyo based Zen Photo." —Morten Andersen

 Photographer's Showcase
Photographer's Showcase: Svjetlana Tepavcevic


photo-eye Gallery is pleased to announce the release of a new portfolio of work by Svjetlana Tepavcevic, Means of Reproduction — New Work. The new images are a continuation of the series by Tepavcevic that we published last year (read the first interview we did with her on photo-eye Blog). Means of Reproduction is a vivid, colorful exploration of the world of seeds and seedpods, which hold the code for life and allude to the passage of time, death and rebirth. I asked Svjetlana to discuss some of the new photographs in this series and how the project has evolved. —Erin Azouz

 photo-eye Book Review


Ongaku by Junichi Taguchi

"Ongaku presents two worlds made by hand. One world produces the ethereal realm of sound, while the other refers to the entirely physical environment of rock, mineral, and wood. The connections between these worlds are made on graphic and intuitive bases; there is scant evidence that the photographs interpret anything related to the auditory content of a particular composition. Taguchi, editor Kimio Jinbo, and designer Satsuki Ishiyama have crafted a book that makes some intriguing, elliptical connections between the work of a composer's hand on a sheet of paper and the inflections of humans on the planar, constructed landscape around us." — from George Slade's review of Ongaku by Junichi Taguchi

William Henry Fox Talbot: Beyond Photography by Mirjam Brusius, Katrina Dean, and Chitra Ramalingam

"William Henry Fox Talbot: Beyond Photography is an illustrated collection of twelve academic essays on the eponymous inventor of numerous early photographic technologies. The stated aim of the work is to use recent research on Talbot's archive of manuscripts, notebooks, correspondences, and photographs to contextualize Talbot and his photographic discoveries within the framework of his other research and of the historical, cultural, and scientific context he inhabited. As a collective, the essays effectively do just that, and a quick glance at the biographies of their authors shows why the essays are so persuasive and why the subtitle is aptly 'beyond photography.'" — from Alexandra Huddleston's review of William Henry Fox Talbot: Beyond Photography
