Keith Sharp's portfolio Nature Boy Series
When I was a little boy, I very much enjoyed exploring nature by collecting bugs, looking for critters in creeks, and by taking walks. In the "Nature Boy" series, I have combined my interests in nature and self-portraiture by having portrayed myself transforming into a tree creature. The inherent awkwardness of this character trying to blend in portrays my experiences as an outsider trying to fit in to my environment.

Peter Beard: Peter Beard Limited Edition Peter Beard Limited Edition
Photographer, collector, diarist, and writer of books Peter Beard has fashioned his life into a work of art; the illustrated diaries he kept from a young age evolved into a serious career as an artist and earned him a central position in the international art world. Beard witnessed the dawn of Kenya's population explosion, which challenged finite resources and stressed animal populations — including the starving elephants of Tsavo, dying by the tens of thousands in a wasteland of eaten trees. So he documented what he saw with diaries, photographs, and collages. He went against the wind in publishing unique and sometimes shocking books of these works. The corpses were laid bare; the facts were carefully written down sometimes in type, often by hand, occasionally with blood. Please note that the prices listed here are pre-publication offers, and the price for the Art Edition will rise after the book's release to $2500.

The Collector's Edition with a print is currently $5000, but will increase to $6500.00.

These photographs are the subject of Eye of the Beholder: Photographs from the Collection of Richard Avedon. "—the publisher READ MORE

Matthew Weinstein: Ikebana Matthew Weinstein: Ikebana
"Drawing on a variety of influences ranging from early Japanese animation and the ancient aesthetic discipline of Ikebana floral arranging to futuristic science fiction, Matthew Weinstein explores the relationship between artifice and nature in his lush, constructed compositions. Bypassing photography altogether, Weinstein works with the latest 3-D computer animation technology which he believes provides the perfect balance between reality and abstraction."—the publisher READ MORE

"Originally published in 2002 by J&L Books. OK OK OK was described by Printed Matter as 'a series of beautifully composed polaroids taken by Mike Slack into a wordless trip around the country. Sequenced like a dream, the nameless places and close-up abstractions are anchored to no narrative but relate to each other through their use of color. They belong together but to a different time, or maybe a different world.' "—the publisher READ MORE

Elizabeth Heyert: The Travelers Elizabeth Heyert: The Travelers
Elizabeth Heyert, whose 2002 work The Sleepers examined the mystery of the sleeping self, stumbled across Isaiah Owens' Harlem funeral home in early 2003. Heyert was captivated by the Southern Baptist practice of meticulous preparation that bodies go through prior to "going to the party," the celebration of entering paradise. Men and women of various ages are carefully decked out in their finest clothes, including hats, gloves, jewelry and Masonic or religious regalia... Reviewed by Phil Harris. READ MORE
