Watershed: A Survey of the French Broad River Basin

"A common misconception of a watershed is that it's all about the water. While water does play a large part, the land plays an even larger role by directing the water to a common point, such as a river or ocean. Thus human impact on the land directly affects the water that runs over it. With this project I have highlighted this relationship between the land, water, and man, within the microcosm of the French Broad Watershed."—Jeff Rich

 photo-eye Gallery Staff Pick
©Erik Boker
©Erik Boker 
This weeks staff pick was chosen by Rixon Reed, although he chose more than one photograph we decided to let it slide since he is the director of photo-eye.

"Erik Boker's Product Dissection series is a cunningly delightful look at consumerism gone a bit mad. In this suite of images Boker uses popular brands of toothpaste as cadavers, cutting them open and revealing their insides in a way reminiscent of high school biology class. Adding to the humor are the titles, the actual names of the various brands of toothpaste: Mini Aquafresh, White & Shine to Colgate Maxfresh, Kiss Me Mint. The suite of images gives a whole new viewpoint to a tube of toothpaste; one in which Marcel Duchamp could be proud. In response to Duchamp's artwork The Urinal, Beatrice Wood wrote 'He took an article of life, placed it so that its useful significance disappeared under the new title and point of view — created a new thought for that object.' These words could also apply to Boker's phenomenal series."

Baghdad Calling
reviewed by Charles Dee Mitchell

Geert van Kesteren's Baghdad Calling begins with the kind of roll call of depressing figures we have come to associate with the current Iraq War: Over 120 armed groups are operating in Iraq. At least 4 million Iraqis have left the country. Since the U.S. occupation began, 209 journalists have been killed in the fighting or executed by insurgents...

Ken magazine (Rare Early 70's Japanese Photo Quarterly--3 Issues--Complete Set!) Ken magazine (Rare Early 70's Japanese Photo Quarterly--3 Issues--Complete Set!)
Ken was published by Shaken, the company established by Shomei Tomatsu, who provided the cover photo for the first issue (shown at right). Like Provoke before it, Ken features much work in the are-bure-boke, or rough, blurred, and out-of-focus, style. Contributions by members of the Provoke crew: Koji Taki, Daido Moriyama, Takuma Nakahira, and Nobuyoshi Araki, among others. A great find, these could very well go the way of the three issues of Provoke, which recently sold at auction for $43,000!!—reference, Anne Wilkes Tucker, et. al., The History of Japanese Photography

Signed copies arriving in one to two weeks.

"In this handsome volume, two separate sets of photographs combine to create a subtle and uncanny instance of what Jude has called the "slippery threshold of narrative" in still images. Jude' accounts of anonymous motel rooms and the stranger regions of the American landscape could, on first glance, be mistaken for an ecological critique. But as the exterior and interior details of these environments begin to merge, interrupt and inform each other..."—the publisher

Signed copies arriving in one to two weeks.

"The experience of looking at Hiroshi Watanabe's images is eerily like stepping into a Social Realist painting: the ruddy—cheeked young girl playing the accordion, the traditional gowns of dancers swirling beneath the omnipresent image of the dear leader and the DPRK flag. One is quietly lulled into the sense that life in North Korea might, be just as it appears within the frames of these images, normal."—the publisher

"One of the most intriguing and little studied forms of nineteenth—century photography is the tintype. Introduced in 1856 as a low—cost alternative to the daguerreotype and the albumen print, the tintype was widely marketed from the 1860s through the first decades of the twentieth century as the most popular photographic medium."—the publisher
