Rita Maas's portfolio At Home, Looking Outward

"These images were taken in my home, an intimate and familiar place to me. They take on temporal qualities of a slow, quiet nature as I observe their constantly shifting features. Shown in sequences, they reflect on the act of deliberately looking; creating a visual language of fragmented moments, layering the complexities of the human capacity to comprehend."-Rita Maas

© Jennifer Greenburg
This week's photo-eye Staff selection from the photo-eye Galleries was selected by Online Gallery Coordinator Sarah Bradley. Sarah has selected Jennifer Greenburg's Kikko & Jezabel from Greenburg's 'The Rockabillies' portfolio.

"The Rockabillies is work from the past seven years which examines a unique global subculture and my relationship with it. The individuals portrayed are not actors, but rather contemporary participants of Rockabilly culture who have co-opted the looks and values of mid-twentieth century America."—Jennifer Greenburg

Greenburg has recently added 6 new images to her portfolio. Click here to see them.

 365 A Book A Day

This week's 365 Book A Day featured items are

Night Shift with photographs by Janne Lehtinen.
"The setting of Lehtinen's latest project is a small city in Finland. Between January and December 2006, the photographer prowled its streets at night, camera in hand, and in the process, he also took portraits of the father at six o'clock in the morning, just as he was coming off his night shift at a paper mill."

Love in Black and White Photographs by Michael Kenna and poems by Bianca Rossi.
"British-born photographer Michael Kenna and Brazilian-born author and actress Bianca Rossini worked together to create a book of photographs and poems entitled "Love in black and white" Beautifully printed on natural Japanese paper in a limited edition of 1,500 hardcover copies, this gorgeous new book comprises 45 of Rossini's original poems, accompanied by selected photographs of Kenna's landscapes taken in locations around the world."

China with photographs by Josef Hoflehner.
"Josef Hoflehner's China monograph spans four years of intensive travel to the Middle Kingdom and is an amazing testament to the unique confluence of geography, history and commerce that has shaped this vast nation. Through an original and often startling juxtaposition of images, classical sites from antiquity mix with new urban skylines to form a collection that underscores the contrasts of modern Chinese life and the sweeping changes taking place.' - from the Introduction by Scott Minick. "

Thoughts on Landscape with writings and interviews by Frank Gohlke.
"Frank Gohlke has been a leading figure in American landscape photography for thirty years. Photographing grain silos in Minnesota, the aftermaths of a tornado in Texas and the Mount St. Helens eruption in Washington, and a river's quiet course in Massachusetts, his is a career of deep, unbroken contemplation of the land, and of our livelihood and survival within it."

On Prior Lane: A Firefly's Light with photographs by Paul Caponigro.
"An acclaimed master of the medium, for more than fifty years Paul Caponigro has cultivated an extraordinary artistic vision. His primary subject matter - landscapes and still lifes - are transformed into metaphysical "equivalents"; the real world, acutely seen and rendered, becomes a transcendental domain."

A Shadow Falls with photographs by Nick Brandt.
"In A Shadow Falls, Nick Brandt continues his ambitious and ongoing photographic project to memorialize the vanishing natural grandeur of East Africa. Brandt's wide-screen panoramas of animals and landscapes capture an epic vision of Africa not seen before. His iconic portraits of its majestic animals are filled with an empathy usually reserved for human subjects."

Palermo Unsung by Mauro D'Agati.
"Palermo Unsung tells the story of singers, cantanti neomelodici, performing at the music festivals in the south of Italy and their frenzied public. It is a story of the common man, ragamuffin, culturally corrupt but human and paradoxically authentic."

Yousuf Karsh: Regarding Heroes Yousuf Karsh: Regarding Heroes
"In his sixty-year career, he seldom wavered from this goal, even when fame and fortune came his way. Neither did he discard his trademark variations in lighting style that he perfected in the late 1940s while other fashions came and went. Unchanging, too, was his genius at capturing the revealing and ephemeral psychological expressions, those fleeting disclosures of character and purpose for which his famous sitters trusted him."—the publisher READ MORE

Regarding Heroes
Sam Falls: Color Dying Light Sam Falls: Color Dying Light
"Last time I spoke with him, he said he wanted more abstraction. He said, "Show me anything I've never seen before." Some might take this to betray a certain cynicism or discontent with the world as it is. I would disagree. Sam's work is more hyper-real than surreal. The fantasy contained in his photographs is not a move away from reality, but closer to it."— Joshua Willey on Sam Falls, August, 2009 READ MORE

"In 2005, the bathroom of Casa Azul, Frida Kahlo's private home, was reopened for the first time since her death 51 years ago. On this occasion Graciela Iturbide embarked on a voyage of discovery of the Mexican artist's private life, documenting the fundamental "witnesses" of her human and artistic career during this week-long "journey": medical supplies, artificial limbs, corsets, hospital gowns and stuffed animals, a portrait of Stalin and her hot-water bottle."—the publisher READ MORE
