"This project visually investigates interior spaces that define themselves as membership clubs... My interest in clubs was sparked by the attitude of Australians towards these entities. Clubs appeared to be institutions of great significance within the social landscape. "—Beatrix Reinhardt

Ruiko Yoshida: Harlem Black Angels (Rare Complete Copy!) Ruiko Yoshida: Harlem Black Angels (Rare Complete Copy!)
Ruiko Yoshida's photographs of Harlem in the early 1970s brilliantly capture various aspects of the culture and the times, showing a side of the U.S. that she felt her Japanese contemporaries knew little about. In the process she created a compelling work that offers an incisive critique of racial hierarchies in the U.S. that, despite its deeply felt humanism, is missing from Bruce Davidson's East 100th Street.

Thomas Ruff with photographs by Thomas Ruff.

Ever since the early 1980s, he has investigated the photographic medium, the use that is made of it, and the world of contemporary visual culture in general. This volume brings together and comments upon a selection of over eighty-four photographic works on the most diverse subjects: house interiors, portraits, architecture, starry skies, and nocturnal urban views."

Flying Pictures with photographs by Daniel Gordon.
"Between 2001 and 2004, on the snowy fields in New York's Hudson Valley and the rocky coasts of the Bay Area in Northern California, photographer Daniel Gordon learned to fly-if only for 1/125 of a second. Using a camera mounted on a tripod, Gordon frames his picture. He then runs out onto the landscape and launches himself into the air, while an assistant snaps the shutter."—Joshua Willey

Archivo with numerous contributing photographers.
"ARCHIVO is a bi-monthly journal fully dedicated to the personal archives of photographers. This multimap features 14 issues published since November 2007."

On-Air with photographs by Atta Kim.
"Korean artist Atta Kim (*1956) is surely one of the country's best known photographers. The ON-AIR project has been in progress since 2002. After Monologue of Ice and Superimposition, Eight Hours is the third body of work Kim has produced within the scope of the project. The photographs in Eight Hours are time-exposed images taken over a period of eight hours on eight-by-ten-inch film. The motifs are persons and objects inNew York, China, India, Prague, Berlin, and Paris who due to the long exposure time appear to disappear in proportion to the speed of their movement."

Portraits From Above with photographs by Von Rufina Wu and Stefan Canham.
"Portraits from Above' is both a book and exhibition project documenting Hong Kong's legacy of rooftop communities as a highly unique form of architecture that has informally evolved. The project offers a comprehensive survey of five rooftop settlements in the city, while also revealing the creative cultural energy of these rooftop communities and their inextricable links to local neighborhood and social networks."

Grasslands with photographs by Don Kirby.
"In 2005, Kirby began a major study of the National Grasslands in the United States. The resulting monograph comprises 47 duotone plates, sequenced geographically from America's heartland of Nebraska, the Dakotas, Kansas and Oklahoma through Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, and Idaho, to the Oregon and California coastlines."
