Ben Lerman, book division associate, has choosen, Birch Trees, Vladimir, Russia, by Sasha Rudensky as his Staff Pick this week.

"The series Remains explores the political and social transformation of the former Soviet Union in the aftermath of the collapse of communism. Rather than concentrating on the global changes in the region, my photographs focus on the more intimate details of daily life; the interiors and exteriors that form an essence of a culture."—Sasha Rudensky

Paul Fusco: RFK reviewed by Will Steacy

My mother, an Irish Catholic who grew up outside Boston, used to read Greek myths to me before putting me to bed. My favorite was the tale of Orpheus's quest through the Underworld to find his beloved Eurydice after her death...

Chargesheimer (Karl Heinz Hargesheimer): Köln 5 Uhr 30 (Cologne 5.30)--In Rare Slipcase Chargesheimer (Karl Heinz Hargesheimer): Köln 5 Uhr 30 (Cologne 5.30)--In Rare Slipcase
"Köln. 5 Uhr 30, published in 1970, is the last volume on Cologne [Chargesheimer produced. It follows by more than a decade Cologne intime (1957) and Unter Krahnenbäumen (1958)]...Again, the gaze is radically subjective. But it is plain what the angry author wants to tell us. Here a train has departed in the wrong direction. Progress that looks like this comes with too high a price. Köln 5 Uhr 30 was bound not to be a crowd-pleaser. The book was too much of a polemic and an indictment for that. It turned out to be the last of Chargesheimer's books. On New Year's Eve 1971/72, the photographer put an end to his life. He didn't fit into his times. And in his final pictures one clearly sees the sadness of an ever-growing alienation." Excerpted from Jan Thorn-Prikker, Chargesheimer: 'I only looked closely through my Rollei', a web essay that accompanied a show of the artist's work earlier this year at the Museum Ludwig in Cologne.

Chelsea Maika: Life As a Golden Half Chelsea Maika: Life As a Golden Half
"Tokyo's esteemed PowerShovelBooks handed Golden Half cameras, cult old-school half-sized cameras, to 11 half-Japanese female models-who took hundred of pictures of themselves, their friends, their homes, travels, daily landscapes and abstract worlds. The result is a vivid, radiant, sometimes ephemeral and gently erotic review of the lives of a group of carefree young women living between Tokyo and the countries of their second halves."—the publisher READ MORE
