Ken Rosenthal's portfolio A Dream Half Remembered
My latest series, A Dream Half Remembered, continues my exploration of personal and collective memories. I began work on this series focusing on the shards of memory retained from the dream state, and the often-random structure and narrative of dreams. I utilize diffusion in printing in order to strip away much specificity from the subject, allowing for a more universal reading of the work.

A rare signed copy of one of the undisputed classics of photographic literature!

Gerhard Steidl began working as a designer and printer in 1967, when he was just 17 years old. On the occasion of an Andy Warhol exhibition in Cologne the following year, Steidl approached the artist. Fascinated by the intensity and saturated colours of Warhol's work, Steidl asked about his silkscreen printing technique. Giddily he returned to his hometown of Göttingen, two hours north of Frankfurt, and set up his first printing studio, following the principle of "learning by doing".

Steidl is one of the few remaining publishing houses to be independently operated by its founding owner, and to control every step of the manufacturing process—the editing, design, typography, scanning, marketing, distribution, public relations and printing. There are only 35 employees working at Steidl's head office in Göttingen.

What began as a backyard enterprise has evolved into one of the world's most sophisticated and distinguished printing and publishing companies.

Ed Ruscha: Then & Now Ed Ruscha: Then & Now
Between 1963 and 1978 Ed Ruscha produced eighteen small artists' books. Usually self-published in small print-runs, these publications have become seminal works in the history of conceptual art and the photography book. Using the same techniques, Then & Now reprises the most famous of these, Every Building on Sunset Strip, using material shot on Hollywood Boulevard in 1973 and 2003. READ MORE

Bruce Davidson: England/Scotland 1960 Bruce Davidson: England/Scotland 1960
"England/Scotland 1960 offers a visionary insight into the very heart of English and Scottish cultures. Reflecting a postwar era in which the revolutions of the 1960s had hardly yet filtered into the mainstream, Davidson's photographs reveal countries driven by difference—the extremes of city and country life, of the landed gentry and the common people—and lucidly portrays the mood of these times in personal and provocative imagery that is as fresh today as it was in that time."—the publisher

Loving the Imperfections of Toy Cameras
"Thanks to digital technology, it's become progressively easier to take perfect pictures. But not everyone strives for perfection — a growing community of photographers is becoming attached to the simplicity and imperfections of what they call "toy cameras."

These cameras, with names like Holga, the Diana-F and the Lomo Action Sampler, are cheaply made plastic devices.

There's even a new magazine devoted to the cameras, Light Leaks, which glorifies the biggest flaw of the toy camera: light often leaks through the plastic casing onto the film, creating odd halo effects and other moments of visual serendipity."—National Public Radio.
