photo-eye featured in PDN Annual issue
In their big ANNUAL issue each May, PDN magazine presents the PDN Players, "the individuals, institutions, clients, and technologies that left their mark on photography this year." We are very proud to be 1 of 8 featured.

"In the November 2006 issue of PDN, photographer Martin Parr suggested that the photo book...had become the most vital way for a photographer to preserve his or her legacy. ... Rixon Reed was way ahead of Parr. ... His love of books led him to start the photo-eye Booklist [in 1979]—a typed, one-page directory that featured and sold some of the preeminent photography publications of the day. ... Today, the now quarterly magazine and online booklist are essential reading for the photo community and any photography book collector."
—Anthony LaSala, PDN, May 2007

Michael Snow: Cover to Cover (rare hardbound edition!)--Ends Tomorrow! Michael Snow: Cover to Cover (rare hardbound edition!)--Ends Tomorrow!
The distinguished Canadian artist, film-maker, and jazz musician Michael Snow is best known as the auteur of Wavelength and, like that notorious and influential movie, Cover to Cover is about process. It is about the process of making and reading a book, and of making and reading photographic images...a veritable Russian doll of representational strategies, a complex, multi-layered work about photographic making and meaning."—Parr & Badger

A holy grail of photobook collecting in rare condition; Airports, Fischli & Weiss's strangely meditative exploration of the spatial banality of modern air travel; The Turk and The Jew, signed by both Mike Mandel & Chantal Zakari; a signed copy of Bill Burke's I Want To Take Picture, and much more!!

"Born in 1930 in a gold-mining town near Johannesburg, his parents were Jewish refugees from Lithuania, and they raised him with an emphasis on tolerance and antiracism. In 1975, at the height of apartheid, Goldblatt explored white nationalist culture in Some Afrikaners Photographed, and in the 80s he observed workers on the Kwandebele-Pretoria bus, many of whom traveled eight hours every day to work and back."—the publisher READ MORE

Hiroshi Watanabe's newest book I see Angels Every Day takes place in the San Lazaro Psychiartic Hospital and the surrounding town of Quito, Ecuador in 2001. As Suzuki Masufumi states in his prelude to this book, Watanabe is willing to "situate himself within the double-mirror of the gazes" to look outward and embrace being gazed upon-to understand.

Donovan Wylie: The Maze Donovan Wylie: The Maze
"For nearly 30 years, the Maze prison, 10 miles outside Belfast, played a unique role in the Northern Ireland Troubles. Built in 1976 to house terrorist prisoners, political segregation was so fierce it led to scenes of violent protests, hunger strikes, mass escapes, and deaths of both inmates and prison staff. At its peak capacity in the 1980s, the Maze housed more than 1,700 prisoners. In September 2000, under the terms of the Good Friday agreement, the prison was closed and the last four inmates were transferred to other prisons in Northern Ireland."—the publisher READ MORE
