Maze by photographer Donovan Wylie is a detailed study of the Maze prison facility outside of Belfast, Ireland. This prison was constructed as a unique architectural solution to the armed conflict in Northern Ireland, holding 10,000 of the nearly 25,000 political prisoners incarcerated in the thirty year conflict. These beautiful photographs are contained in a two-volume set and within these volumes the photographs are divided into four sections depicting different “layers” of the Maze. The internal walls, the fencing, the H-Blocks, and the perimeter walls all comprise the different layers, making for a complex and descriptive study. Copies of this beautiful monograph are back-in-stock and available for order.
Also arriving soon, two new monographs by Dutch photographer Charlotte Dumas, known for her 2010 book, Repose. The first, Al Lavoro! published by Fantombooks and commissioned by the Rapallo Fotografia Contemporanea, is a documentation on the subject of working dogs in the Castello di Rapallo region of Italy. The edition, limited to 350 copies, explores both the animal as subject along with their relationships with human beings. The second, Paradis, expands Dumas’ portraiture to a variety of animals — wolves, dogs and horses. Copies of both of these hard-to-find monographs are arriving soon and are now available for preorder.
