Daniel Seymour: A Loud Song Daniel Seymour: A Loud Song
A Loud Song was a landmark book in the new personal documentary style: Tulsa, The Lines of My Hand, Vagabond by Gaylord Herron, Danny Lyon's Paper Negative and Bill Burke's books all owe something to A Loud Song. Seymour was a friend and neighbor of Robert Frank's on the Bowery in New York City. They worked together on a number of projects. The last being Frank's film on the Rolling Stones: CS Blues. Shortly after the filming was done Seymour was killed on a sail boat in the Caribbean.

"Chicago, like many urban centers throughout the world, has recently undergone a surge in new construction, grafting a new layer of architectural experimentation onto those of past eras. In early 2007, the Museum of Contemporary Photography, with the support of U.S. Equities Realty, invited Michael Wolf as an artist—in—residence. Bringing his unique perspective on changing urban environments to a city renowned for its architectural legacy."—the publisher READ MORE

John Stezaker: Marriage John Stezaker: Marriage
"Marriage, this latest monograph in John Stezaker's brilliant Film Portraits, finds the British artists once again playing the edge between caricature and portraits, the real and the incredible. Stezaker's medium is vintage film stills, and his delicate, almost Cubist, portrait-collages, which play with scale, representation and - most powerfully - the viewers' expectations, seem both vulnerable and even more deeply human than the 'real thing.'"—the publisher READ MORE

John Stezaker: Masks John Stezaker: Masks
"This exhibition catalog from Stezaker's recent show in London includes eighteen collages that focus on the British artist's fascination with the hidden face. As the artist explains it, the masks are 'a way of negotiating a threshold between the living and the dead, which in a way is what I think all art is trying to do, it's trying to reanimate the dead.'"—the publisher READ MORE
