Just arrived at our warehouse, copies of Just Kids
by the legendary American musician Patti Smith. Just Kids
is Smith's first book of prose, recounting her long friendship with seminal photographer Robert Mapplethorpe during their shared youth in New York City. In 1969, the two friends took up residence at the famous Chelsea Hotel, beginning the end of their "hungry days." As gifted a storyteller in prose as in song, Smith has blessed us with a wealth of new information on the formative days of some of the most influential artists of the last century. Copies now in stock.
Also just arrived at our warehouse, copies of Terez地
by interdisciplinary artist Daniel Blaufuks, published by Steidl in Germany. Terez地
takes it's title from that of it's subject, Theresienstadt (or Terez地) in the Czech Republic — an 18th Century fortress turned Nazi concentration camp. A vital propaganda tool for the Nazi's, Terez地 was presented by the Third Reich as the model "Jewish settlement," housing many prominent Jewish intellectuals and celebrities, with a large functional library, cultural activities, fire brigade and even police force — a thin veneer over what was ultimately just another stop en route to Auschwitz. Blaufuks treatment is difficult, revealing and beautiful — copies now in stock.
Other books of particular note, Stephen Shore's new monograph Stephen Shore
published on the occasion of his exhibition at The Douglas Hyde Gallery. This work was selected by Shore himself and represents a diverse retrospective from every series of his work and different time periods in Shore's career. Shore's work was recently published in the anthology New Topographics
- a celebration of the landmark exhibition of the same name, originally exhibited 30 years ago at the International Museum of Photography in Rochester, New York.
Michal Chelbin's The Black Eye
, published by Twin Palms, is the photographer's continued efforts to photograph world athletes and performers from different parts of Europe. Chelbin's first monograph Strangely Familiar
showcased a beautiful and sensitive display of portraiture. Both Stephen Shore
and The Black Eye
are expected to arrive around the end of June.
