Antonio Gesmundo's portfolio Flowers - Polaroid Portraits
"My approach to single stems or floral groups is not that of traditional still life. Removed from the natural context, I focus attention on forms and lighting. The goal is incorporate the portrait genre and nude-study to relate the intimate beauty of flowers to the beauty of human life."—Antonio Gesmundo

Ikko Narahara was a founding member of the famed VIVO agency. The influence of William Klein is visible in this volume's dramatic close-ups, erratic croppings, and full-page bleeds (which, in the case of the abundant double gatefold spreads, are actually "four-page bleeds"). The high contrast, grainy images give the work a tone that is at once highly impressionistic, raw and visceral. A fascinating and much sought-after book!

Upcoming auctions include signed books by Larry Clark, William Eggleston, and others; a signed limited edition with print of Dave Heath's classic Dialogue with Solitude; The Art of Edward Weston, a 1932 limited edition of 500, and much more!
Bids shown below are current as of 6:00 pm MT, 11.23.2005

Aperture—the premier not-for-profit arts institution dedicated to advancing fine photography—was founded in 1952 by six profoundly gifted individuals possessed of lofty ideals and high ambition: photographers Ansel Adams, Dorothea Lange, Barbara Morgan, and Minor White; historian Beaumont Newhall; and writer/curator Nancy Newhall. With scant resources, these prescient artists created a new periodical, Aperture magazine, to serve the medium, and photography users and fine art lovers worldwide. With profound respect for the integrity of the viewer's experience and the artist's vision, Aperture presents to the public the finest photographic images that are faithful to the artist's intent and to the truth of the subject. These images are conveyed as intended by the artist, uncompromised by commercial motive, marketplace trends, or external censorship.

Laurie Simmons: Walking, Talking, Lying Laurie Simmons: Walking, Talking, Lying
"The intimate ache of the dollhouse and its air of manipulation (whether as consumer object or ventriloquist dummy) has become as indelibly identified with pioneering photographer Laurie Simmons as with Ibsen...Over the past 25 years, her photographs have conveyed a bittersweet nostalgia for the 1950s while edgily commenting on consumerism, feminism, and other fraught aspects of postwar American culture."—the publisher READ MORE

"Panoramic photographs of fantastical landscapes make City of Salt a bizarre Baedeker to alternative realities. Inspired by Sufi tales, the writings of fabulist Italo Calvino, and parables by the artists themselves, Kahn and Selesnick's process combines sculptural and photographic media"—the publisher READ MORE

Joan Fontcuberta: Landscapes Without Memory Joan Fontcuberta: Landscapes Without Memory
"Joan Fontcuberta tries to put the 'real' in Dalí's surrealism. Fontcuberta subjects various imaginative landscapes, as well as his own body, to the manipulation of landscape-rendering software, which translates contours into natural elements such as hills, rivers, clouds, and the like. The result, actually, looks far from real."—the publisher READ MORE
