Jeff Brouws: Approaching Nowhere
Please join us to meet with photographer Jeff Brouws, who will be signing copies of his new monograph, Approaching Nowhere. Brouws has spent almost two decades documenting commercial landscapes in the United States, carefully examining the socioeconomic and historical factors at work behind the build-up of infrastructure. His photographs take on aspects of typologies or forensic exhibits, but without compromising a highly-developed aesthetic sense. The book signing will take place this Thursday, November 16th, from 4:30 to 6:30 in our bookstore at 370 Garcia Street in Santa Fe. Please call 1.800.227.6941 for more information.

If you can't make it to the booksigning this Thursday evening, then reserve your copy now.

Announcing our new Gallery Director
photo-eye Gallery is very pleased and excited to announce our new Gallery Director, Elizabeth Avedon. Ms. Avedon moved from New York to New Mexico about 6 months ago, bringing with her extensive experience in the fine-art photography world. She was Creative Director for the Richard Gere Foundation and has designed major photographic exhibitions for many museums across the country and Japan. In addition, she has designed or helped edit a wide range of photography books, including Diana Vreeland, In the American West, and Avedon: Photographs 1947-1977, as well as working as with many well-known photographers and magazines. You can read more about Elizabeth Avedon on her website.

Our out-going Director, Joslin Van Arsdale, is leaving mid-December to pursue her own business venture. We'd like to take this opportunity to thank her for her excellent work and contributions to the gallery and photo-eye.

Rineke Dijkstra: Beaches (Rare 1st edition!) Rineke Dijkstra: Beaches (Rare 1st edition!)
Not to be confused with the more common book entitled Beach Portraits. This fantastically rare volume is Dijkstra's first collection.

"[Dijkstra's] images resemble classical portraiture with their frontally posed figures isolated against minimal backgrounds...Dijkstra's pictures deftly expose the emotional state of her individual sitters...In photographing the already awkward young subjects in their bathing suits, Dijkstra sets up a situation marked by a self-consciousness that parallels the uneasy passage between childhood and adulthood."—reference Guggenheim Museum

"The rigor of [Dijkstra's] presentation demonstrated an intellectual clarity and ambition that was enough to announce a major new voice in portraiture, possibly the trickiest of photographic genres to bring off successfully."—Parr & Badger, The Photobook, A History, vol. II.

James Perry Walker: The Reverend James Perry Walker: The Reverend
"Converted at the age of fifteen, ordained at nineteen, Reverend Louis Cole was a true circuit preacher of the old style. He visited his four churches on a rotating basis, preaching at a different church each Sunday of the month and continually counseling his far-flung seekers. The portraits of him reveal a man of great strength and hard-won wisdom who was a pillar of the communities he served."—the publisher READ MORE

John Sexton: Recollections - SIGNED John Sexton: Recollections - SIGNED
"Recollections, John Sexton's beautiful new book, invites the viewer into contemplative landscapes and human-made environments filled with vibrant luminosity. Seen through Sexton's eyes, his subjects are transformed into images of tranquility, wonder, and mystery. From the purity of a fresh snowfall in Yosemite Valley to the enigmatic rock forms of the Colorado Plateau, Sexton explores the subtle nuances of details rather than grand vistas."—the publisher READ MORE

Daniela Rossell: Ricas y Famosas Daniela Rossell: Ricas y Famosas
"This is the private lifestyle of Mexican millionaires, and it is photographer Daniela Rossell's outrageous twist on what is historically understood as Mexican documentary photography. Rather than documenting the lifestyles of indigenous peoples, the urban poor, or exotic village scenes — as so many of her colleagues have done and continue to do — she has chosen to explore the habitat, customs, and traditions of the tiniest minority in Mexico: the ultra-rich"—the publisher

Dayanita Singh: Privacy Dayanita Singh: Privacy
"What can a photographer in India capture on film other than disasters or the exotic? After many years spent documenting the poverty in her homeland, Dayanita Singh was preoccupied by this question. Her answer here is a return to the world from which she came, to India's extended, well-to-do families and their fine homes. Both on commission and on her own, she photographed friends and friends of friends, creating a portrait of another society, complete with its traditional and post-colonial symbols of prosperity."—the publisher READ MORE
