David Julian's portfolio Taken From the Heart
"Working as a photographic and mixed media artist, I am drawn to darkness, beauty, and the conceptual challenge of interpreting psychological and environmental subjects. With the series 'Taken From the Heart: Images of Intimate Loss After Katrina,' I explored the theme of forced disconnection through profound personal loss. Through my work, I hope to inspire others to connect deeply with what matters most in their lives."

Walker Evans: Lyric Documentary Walker Evans: Lyric Documentary
"Walker Evans's career spread over 46 fitful and prolific years, yet in a scant two, 1935-1936, he produced the singular body of work that came to define him. Lyric Documentary presents these seminal images for the first time as a comprehensive, cohesive body of work, in chronological order. These are prime examples of Evans's alchemy, his seemingly effortless transformation of mundane fact into sweeping lyricism."—the publisher READ MORE

David Scheinbaum: Stone - SIGNED David Scheinbaum: Stone - SIGNED
"Stone — iconic, mutable, durable, sensual — is the chosen medium for humankind's expression of eternal truths and a worthy subject of the photographer's art. The worked stone structures and natural formations presented here profoundly capture the unique ideas, shared social and aesthetic values, and religious beliefs of which they are a reflection."—the publisher READ MORE

Jeff Brouws: Approaching Nowhere Jeff Brouws: Approaching Nowhere
"Like many who grew up during the spread of sprawl, photographer Jeff Brouws is drawn to places that still embody the vernacular past as well as to those that starkly portray the soulless, franchised American landscape. What began as cultural geography of Main Streets became a visual critique of the myth of upward mobility that created this car-centered, paved-over universe. Some images look outward to the edges of suburbia where sprawl is encroaching upon nature. Others turn inward, documenting the devastated inner cities. All reflect the complex beauty and desolation of visual life in our time."—the publisher READ MORE

Elliott Erwitt: Personal Best Elliott Erwitt: Personal Best
A collection of work ranging from the well-known to the never before published, Elliott Erwitt's Personal Best is largely a collection of photographs made by Erwitt in his role as what he calls an "amateur" photographer. In other words, these are images made not for commercial assignments, but rather to sate the driving curiosity that has made Erwitt both hugely prolific and also one of the few photographers (or even artists, for that matter) whose work elicits not only joy but sometimes out-and-out laughter.

Annie Leibovitz: A Photographer's Life Annie Leibovitz: A Photographer's Life
"'I don't have two lives,' Annie Leibovitz writes in the Introduction to this collection of her work from 1990-2005. 'This is one life, and the personal pictures and the assignment work are all part of it.' The images form a narrative rich in contrasts and continuities: The photographer has a long relationship that ends with illness and death. She chronicles the celebrations and heartbreaks of her large and robust family. She has children of her own. All the while she is working, and the public work resonates with the themes of her life."—the publisher READ MORE

Tim Davis: My Life in Politics - SIGNED Tim Davis: My Life in Politics - SIGNED
"This first in-depth publication of photographer Tim Davis's work dissects the disenchantment and dissociation that have come to dominate American civil life. It is Davis's treatise on the state of contemporary politics, politics as an aestheticized banality abstracted from real issues of power. He finds freedom of expression exhibited at its most casual and cursory, with political, commercial and populist signage jostling for space and attention in the social landscape."—the publisher READ MORE
