Corey Keller: Brought to Light, Photography and the Invisible 1840-1900
from Richard Gordon

Writing this review for Brought To Light has been simmering on my back burner for too long. Since I finished reading the first volume of Janet Browne's beautifully written, "magisterial" biography of Darwin yesterday—Happy Birthday Charley—with the airwaves full of Darwiniana of all sorts, one of the PR/Tourist Board Darwin promotional tie-ins came from Johannesburg where the Beagle stopped on its return to Britain. While there, Darwin had long talks with Sir John Hersc...

Ellen Lupton: Indie Publishing: How to Design and Produce Your Own Book
from Melanie McWhorter

Indie Publishing: How to Design & Publish Your Own Book, the newest title edited by Ellen Lupton for Princeton Architectural Press, has already proven to be wildly popular ? indeed, it's already in its second printing, the first sold out almost immediately upon release. Lupton has been the Director of the MFA Graphic Design program at Maryland Institute of College of Art since 1997 and is the author and/or editor of a multitude of books published by P.A.Press...

Much has been said of the diaries of Peter Beard, but few have ever seen them. Every page is an arrestingly intricate collage of images, text, and ink. Beard allows everything into his diary—photographic images, pen-and-ink work, names and addresses of friends, and smears of blood and coffee which recur throughout. Every page of this beautifully reproduced edition is a barrage of visual and intellectual stimulation, providing a look into the personal life of this extraordinary man. One of the most inspiring books on a work of art ever published.

A unique, signed copy with Beard's paint-dipped hand pressed onto the page as part of the signature. Also unique to this copy: there is a small 2x2" black-and-white photo of a leopard glued onto the red tissue fly-leaf and a second photograph of animal bones glued onto the upper right corner of the signature page (see above illustration). Inscription reads "Salaams 2 the one and only Charlene - Peter Beard" (with his address included).

This copy shows some wear and small tears around the edges of the dustjacket. Apart from the signature page there are additional paint marks along the edges of the text block and on the title page.

Daido Moriyama: Bye-Bye Polaroid Daido Moriyama: Bye-Bye Polaroid

Copies arriving in two to four weeks.

Interior image shown here.
"As the title "bye-bye polaroid" suggests, Polaroid has stopped the manufacturing of instant film. The decision comes into force this summer following the growing strength of the digital market and the subsequent decrease in demand for instant film. Moriyama has photographed the city of Tokyo to pay homage to polaroid, a medium he has used unrelentingly for many years. In a style that hasn?t changed for 40 years, he roams the streets, smoking out the sights and smells of the city. Limited to 500 copies."—the publisher

"Twelve years ago, Nazraeli Press published Toshio Shibata's Landscape, the artist's first Western monograph and one which sold out upon publication. In the interim, Shibata has moved to large—format color photography, maintaining as his subject the spectacular, anti—erosion engineering structures so prevelant in the mountainous inland regions of Japan and parts of the United States."—the publisher READ MORE

Copies arriving in about two weeks.

"Witness Number 6 provides a portrait — in 157 photographs by Lee Friedlander, and accompanying essay by Maria Friedlander — of the sculptor Raoul Hague. The Friedlanders knew Hague for over two and a half decades, and their deep fondness for, and mutual trust with, the Armenian-born sculptor comes through in every image and word of this gorgeous addition to JGS's Witness series."—the publisher

Raimond Wouda: School Raimond Wouda: School
"Raimond Wouda's School shows groups of pupils at numerous secondary schools in the Netherlands. Rather than depicting classrooms, Wouda chose to photograph the places where students relax between classes. According to Wouda, the current debates about substance and behaviour in secondary schools have gone unnoticed by the students themselves, for whom school is a relatively safe place in which to meet and interact with their friends, and to discover their own identity."—the publisher READ MORE

Eva Leitolf: Deutsche Bilder - Eine Spurensuche Eva Leitolf: Deutsche Bilder - Eine Spurensuche

Copies arriving in two to four weeks.

"The photographer Eva Leitolf's complex of works developed between 1992 and 2008 entitled 'Deutsche Bilder — eine Spurensuche' focuses upon and engages with the phenomenon of xenophobic, racially motivated violence in Germany. Her photographs dating from the beginning to mid—1990's present the crime scenes where the attacks were perpetrated, locals who sympathised with the acts as well as passive bystanders.
In 2006 Eva Leitolf resumed this work but reduced the content of the pictures to the locations of the incidents."—the publisher READ MORE

"The use of heterosexual pornography or soft erotica in collage and assemblage is often all too uncritical, but for a few of the California artists who came of age in the early 1950s, its applications were much more nuanced. This approach to 'girlie magazine' imagery and its polar opposite—the impulse to decommodify sexuality—can both be found in photographs, paintings and books..."—the publisher READ MORE

Copies arriving in one to two weeks.

"A photograph of an image of a woman with a triangular slice where her eyes should be, a two-page aerial shot of a forest, a train coming straight at us: Bertrand Fleuret's artist's book Landmasses and Railways juxtaposes such enigmatic and striking black and white images to create a pleasantly unsettling, difficult to decipher narrative."—the publisher

Jeff L. Rosenheim: Walker Evans and the Picture Post Jeff L. Rosenheim: Walker Evans and the Picture Post
"The American postcard came of age around 1907, when postal deregulations allowed correspondence to be written on the address side of the card. By 1914, the craze for picture postcards had proved an enormous boon for local photographers, as their black and white pictures were transformed into handsomely colored photolithographic postcards that were reproduced in great bulk and sold in five and dime stores in every small town in America. In the Walker Evans Archive at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, there is a collection of 9,000 such postcards amassed by the great American photographer, who began his remarkable collection at the age of 10."—the publisher READ MORE

The New Business of Photography
With Mary Virginia Swanson
March 8-14, 2009
From art galleries to book covers, from commercial media to corporate décor, photography is a universal language, crossing geographic and demographic boundaries to appear in almost all media and markets. This new workshop with Mary Virginia Swanson guides participants through today?s tricky business climate for photographers, introducing and exploring new avenues for operating successfully in a broad spectrum of markets. Other topics addressed include branding your business, marketing and promoting in print and on the Internet, and copyrighting and licensing your work.

Moving Forward with Your Photography: Developing and Marketing Your Work
With Joyce Tenneson
March 15-21
Are you a photographer who creates wonderful images but does not have an outlet for them? This is a week for brainstorming and investigating ways to promote your work for galleries, book projects, or commercial use. Through information-packed PowerPoint presentations and field trips that encourage participants to see their work in new ways, the goal is to inspire everyone to re-connect with that original passion for photography and feel confident about moving forward in the future.

This is not a workshop devoted to making new photographs. Instead, Joyce focuses on working one-on-one to address each individual's photography and goals. Based on the portfolios participants bring to Santa Fe, Joyce designs exercises that will aid in building their work and creating a blueprint for the future.

Publishing the Photographic Book
with Sam Abell and Leah Bendavid-Val
March 22-28

This workshop is for photographers seriously interested in publishing a book of their photographs. We address every aspect of book publishing, from editing and writing, to layout and design, to manufacturing and marketing. By focusing on the unique aspects of your work, together we arrive at decisions leading toward an appropriate book format. Using materials you bring to the workshop, including photographs and text (manuscripts, journals, notes, ephemera, etc.), daily sessions are devoted to refining and structuring your body of work.

Designing Your Photographic Book
With Mim Adkins and Elsa Kendall
March 29-April 4

Any photographer who has dreamed of publishing a photographic project in book form faces some daunting questions. Where do you begin? What tools do you use? How do you collaborate with an editor and designer? How do you decide on style, shape, size, and other specifics? In this workshop participants turn their projects into book prototypes that can serve as BLADs (Basic Layout and Design)—abbreviated book concepts to send to publishers—or as the focused beginnings of a book idea to be completed after the workshop. Topics covered include the types of books best suited to each project, the bookmaking process, and venues for publishing. Mim and Elsa have extensive experience transforming photographers' work into well-edited, beautifully designed books uniquely tailored to each project. They guide participants through initial editing sessions, intensive tutorials on using Adobe Bridge and InDesign for on-screen editing and creating the book layout, and one-on-one design consultations. The week also covers working with commercial printers, the various avenues of publishing, how to approach publishers, and self-publishing issues.
