Opening this Friday: Nick Brandt: On This Earth
photo-eye Gallery is pleased to announce On This Earth, an exhibition of photographs by Nick Brandt, from his upcoming Chronicle Books monograph. The artist will be present at the gallery opening on July 8th, 2005 from 5-7pm. A lecture will be held at the Center for Contemporary Art, July 9th, 2pm. $5 general admission, $3 students, free to members.

Working in the vein of the late 19th century Pictorialist movement and later the Photo Secessionists, Nick Brandt's portraits of African wildlife have brought animal photography beyond the traditional technical documentation of wild life photography into the realm of Fine Art. His work utilizes expressive and symbolic uses of lighting that create an atmospheric depth that is often absent in commercial wildlife photography. Dramatic lighting, selective focus and depth of field takes one back in time, reminiscent of the albumen prints of Julia Margaret Cameron, Lewis Carroll, as well as, Nadar, Etienne Carjat and the Galerie Contemporaine.

Nick Kline's portfolio Undercover
"The images from the 'Undercover', 2005, series were made by visiting dry cleaning shops where I would set up my tripod and camera in a makeshift 'studio' and select clothes hanging in storage...Like the images, the title "Undercover" is ambiguous. On one hand its alludes to something 'official'. I am also interested in how a sense of dread and discomfort can emerge from something familiar literally being 'covered'".—Nick Kline

Open for Bidding: Ken Ohara's One--Rare Signed 1st EditionOpen for Bidding: Ken Ohara's One--Rare Signed 1st Edition
A conceptual work of sorts—pre-dating similar work by Dussledorf School photographers by well over a decade. "Ohara has taken the utopian step of using the camera to turn humankind into one big melting pot, his serial photographs making almost ritual atonement for the sin of racism."—Parr & Badger
Later re-issued by Taschen, this is a very rare signed copy of already rare first edition.

photo-eye Booklist: 2005 Summer photo-eye Booklist: 2005 Summer
photo-eye is pleased to announce the transformation of our quarterly Booklist into a 100% subscription-based magazine with a 4-issue price of only $20. The Booklist is handsomely designed and intelligently edited, with articles about photobook publishing, interviews with photographers and book makers, and, of course, our much anticipated survey of the best new photobooks from around the world. There is absolutely no other magazine like it.

Over a period of 25 years, the photo-eye Booklist grew from a single typewritten page in 1979, into a respected specialty book catalogue—must-reading for photobook lovers. The latest step in our evolution represents the culmination of several years of concerted editorial development, including more in-depth writing, new features of interest to collectors and photographers, and a summer 2004 re-design. We hope you enjoy our new magazine and support us in this exciting endeavor. Thank you for your help in making this publication a reality.
