Fredrik Marsh's portfolio Dresden Reliquary: Past Into Present
"While spending three months in Dresden, Germany as artist in residence during 2002, I was drawn to photographing the remains of the East German Communist-controlled industrial-military complex and the ongoing rebuilding and reconstruction occurring throughout the city. My large-scale panoramic photographs demonstrate the juxtapositions and ironies still abundant in the post-communist world, showing the old and the new as well as the grandeur and the decay of these once-majestic buildings."—Fredrik Marsh

Fredrik Marsh's portfolio The Inhabitants
"Since the fall of the Berlin Wall, in eastern Germany a significant number of factories, apartment buildings and former Soviet Army military complexes remain vacant, abandoned and largely in states of decay. With its unique mixture of post-reunification construction, Soviet-style architecture remaining from more than forty years of Communist control, and the rebuilding of the destruction wrought by the infamous firebombing of World War ll now in full force, the city is an amalgam of the past and the present, the baroque and the postmodern—the past in the present. Dresden, while retaining its historicism in the many reconstructions that continue throughout the city is also contrasted by purely new and modern construction and can never be fully detached from the past—a reliquary of the past contained within the present."—Fredrik Marsh

Larry Towell: No Man's Land Larry Towell: No Man's Land
"I began photographing Israel's 'Security Fence' in 2003, a decade after I made my first trip to the Middle East following the signing of the Oslo Peace Accords. I have been documenting the Arab-Israeli conflict ever since that first visit.

To those Palestinians living behind the fence, it is an apartheid wall that will confine them to ghettos—cutting them off from schools, hospitals, employment, their land, and each other. Families will be divided by cement and razorwire."—the publisher READ MORE

Ralph Eugene Meatyard: A Fourfold Vision Ralph Eugene Meatyard: A Fourfold Vision
"In this book, these particular images are at least double exposures, and it would be tempting to stop there, in the twofold world of double vision. But Meatyard's vision was of Blake's kind, fourfold, and of immense delight, or belonging at least to the world of "sweet Beulah's night." I cannot show you how this is true, but if you have seen it, if you have felt it for yourself, you will know." — From the Introduction by Emmet Gowin READ MORE

Doisneau Photo 'The Kiss' Sells for $202K
PARIS - "The woman in Robert Doisneau's classic photograph of a couple stealing a passionate kiss on a Paris street sold her original print at an auction Monday for more than $200,000—about 10 times the expected sale price.

'The Kiss at City Hall' was bought by an unidentified Swiss collector, who is expected to pay an additional $38,850 in taxes and other fees in addition to the $202,000 purchase price, according to Artcurial Briest Pulain le Fur auction house, where the sale took place. Before the auction, the house said the photograph was expected to sell for between $19,600 and $26,000.

The photograph was put up for auction by Francoise Bornet—a former actress who claims she and an old flame were the subjects of the image, which was taken in 1950 and skyrocketed to fame in 1986 when it was reprinted as a poster."—VANESSA CZARNECKI, Associated Press Writer
