David Wolf's portfolio Transform/Transcend
Transform/Transcend delights in the sheer physicality of architecture even as it suggests its very impermanence. As we look at these buildings their blurred lines and sepia tones push at our sense of time. We try to place the images somewhere between now and then, as if each one asks us to identify it as new or old.

Miyako Ishiuchi: Monochrome Miyako Ishiuchi: Monochrome
Miyako Ishiuchi began her studies in art as a weaving major at Tama Art University. She left before completing her degree in 1970. She is now recognized as one of Japan's pioneering woman photographers. She was Japan's representative at the 51st Venice Biennale in 2005. In a 1994 review, critic Donald Kuspit wrote, "[Ishiuchi] wants to turn the ordinary into the abstract: to purify the presence of certain otherwise ugly, unsightly, banally human shapes. She suggests that everything can be redeemed by the grace of art—by the right shading, the right placement, the right distance..."

Stephen Gill: Buried Stephen Gill: Buried
"The photographs in this book were taken in Hackney Wick and later buried there. The amount of time the images were left undergournd varied depending on the amount of rainfall. The depths that pictures were buried at also varied, as did their positioning. Sometimes they were facing each other, sometimes back to back or sometimes buried singly."—Stephen Gill

Buried is housed in a paper slipcase, and each copy of the book includes an original color photograph in an envelope marked "Bury Your Own." READ MORE

Jeff Wall American Retrospective Catalogue and Writings
In conjunction with the American traveling retrospective exhibition of Jeff Wall's work, the three insitiutions hosting the show—Museum of Modern Art, New York, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the Art Institute of Chicago— have complied an accompanying catalogue, simply titled Jeff Wall. Although the catalogue is smaller than the Catalogue Raisonne published in tandem with the European retrospective, this volume contains an interview with Wall by James Rondeau, curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Art Institute of Chicago. Along with the catalogue, MoMA has culled a collection of text and images called Selected Essays and Interviews with 14 essays and 23 interviews from the past 25 years. Works and Collected Writings, a work of over 150 illustrations and 300 pages, will also be published this year. All three books are due in March.

William Ewing: Face William Ewing: Face
"Whether Cindy Sherman's disquieting disguises, Gillian Wearing's masked self-portrait, Lawick Muller's composite portraits of couples, Thomas Ruff's studiously neutral facade, or Orlan's disturbing experiments with cosmetic surgery, these faces demand attention. Other artists represented in the book include Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, Martin Parr, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Rineke Dijkstra, Lee Friedlander, Barbara Kruger, and Tibor Kalman."—the publisher READ MORE

Richard Renaldi: Figure and Ground Richard Renaldi: Figure and Ground—Signed
"These images were made across the United States, and take in not only those who might seem traditionally American-a blonde carrying a Louis Vuitton bag through a Greyhound terminal, or a rodeo cowboy, arms akimbo, standing determinedly against an all-dirt horizon-but also a woman in a burqa and Timberland boots on a faded Newark street and a transgender girl working a fast-food counter under the sad-glamorous glow of fluorescent lighting. If there is truly a center to the changing American social landscape, it can be found here, in these precisely rendered portraits."—the publisher READ MORE

Chris Shaw: Life As a Night Porter Chris Shaw: Life As a Night Porter
"Whether capturing prostitutes waiting between "Johns," weary hotel staff, the inebriated and profligate guests, or the details of the hotels' faded grandeur, Shaw's images transcend the physical boundaries of a place, and instead capture a state of mind in which few people would choose to stay more than a night."—the publisher READ MORE
