 photo-eye Magazine Reviews

©Otto Snoek from Why Not
Shoot reviewed by Susan Burnstine
Shoot: Photography Of The Moment is a compelling look at a wave of photographers who deliberately present seemingly offhand images in a fine art or editorial context, and thus strive to create "perfectly imperfect" images. read more

Why Not reviewed by Aline Smithson
My first reaction to Dutch photographer Otto Snoek's new book, Why Not, was that Rotterdam was off my travel list. read more

A Series of Human Decisions reviewed by George Slade
As a rule, I'm a fan of the built environment. The choices and structures we make as a species are bewildering, arrogant, inorganic, and full of illusions about what is necessary to allow our continued evolution... read more

The exhibition will be on display from October 23rd through Saturday, November 28th, 2009.

In April of 2007, David Bram traveled to Iceland with a group of seven photographers, all of whom concentrated on and enjoyed the landscape.

David Bram Bio:

Artist David Bram was born and raised in New York. He moved to New Mexico in January of 2000. Following a short stint in software development, he followed his heart and began to study photography again after being away from it for several years. His work has been included in many group shows in New Mexico and is in the collection of the Palace of the Governors, as well as many private collections. He is the editor and founder of Fraction Magazine, an online venture promoting and exploring emerging photographic artists. When not traveling around New Mexico seeking out the new and unexplored, he can be found in a few coffee shops, enjoying a latte and playing with his one-year-old daughter.

The photo-eye Bookstore is located at 370 Garcia Street, Santa Fe, NM and is open Monday through Saturday, 10am to 6pm.
 365 A Book A Day

This week's 365 Book A Day featured items are:

Witness No. 7 with photographs by Todd Hido.
"As guest editor of Witness Number 7, Todd Hido creates a relationship between his own photographs of vacant interiors of foreclosed homes - the first time this series has been published as a group - with portraits made by Leon Borensztein during the 1980s. Hido's images contain traces and impressions of lives previously having been lived in the now-empty homes."

The Rockabillies with photographs by Jennifer Greenburg.
"In Rockabillies, photographer Jennifer Greenburg offers a visual tour of a unique global subculture and her own place within it. The individuals her photographs capture are examples of the rockabilly scene, having fully embraced the aesthetic values of teens in the 1950s. What intrigues Greenburg is that these contemporary Rockabillies choose to overlook the social and political realities of the time period they adore and emulate."

Hiroshi Sugimoto with photographs by Hiroshi Sugimoto.
"Documenting in detail Sugimoto's architectural and landscape design of the new Izu Photo Museum, the book is at once a reinvention of the artist as architect, as it is an insightful guide to Sugimoto's interest in the earliest beginnings of photography. Instigated by the urging of his friend, Pop art icon Richard Hamilton, Sugimoto went to England to visit the museum of William Henry Fox Talbot, the inventor of the negative/positive photographic process."

Dogwalk/Out of Sight with photographs by Tina Enghoff and Kent Klich.
"Two photographic books are presented together here that were produced as part of the 'Get Lost' project - which aimed to connect social and spatial themes relevant to the city with each other."

Fazal Sheikh with photographs by Fazal Sheikh.
"Sheikh follows in the footsteps of a great tradition of documentary photography, seeking to reflect the realities of the most underprivileged peoples of different third world countries. His meticulously composed, vivid black and white portraits that are taken from a classical frontal perspective reveal the inherent humanity of his subjects."

En Blanc Et Noir with photographs by Tomoko Mukaiyama and Philip Mukaiyama.
"Made in collaboration between the celebrated pianist, Tomoko Mukaiyama and her late husband and photographer Philip Mechanicus, 'en blanc et noir' combines both contributor's skills in a personal and stylish publication. A series of full-page, black and white photographs, present previously unpublished nude pictures of the pianist along with an image of her behind her piano and other images taken by Mechanicus."

Situation Comedy with photographs by Ed Templeton.
"Templeton's exhibition entitled 'Situation-Comedy' presented at Museum het Domein, Sittard led to the production of this catalogue that was designed by this street-wise artist himself. Photographs, drawings and paintings - the majority created before he burst into the eyes of the mainstream - are collected together in this image filled production."

Cyril Christo and Marie Wilkinson: Walking Thunder Cyril Christo and Marie Wilkinson: Walking Thunder
"They're the last individuals' Romain Gary wrote in his magnum opus The Roots of Heaven 1956. Today, more than twenty years after the 1989 ivory ban, the elephant population is crumbling under the menace of trophy hunters, collectors and poachers who are ransacking the last great herds of the family of Abu for trinkets. WALKING THUNDER In the Footsteps of the African Elephant is the first black and white book of its kind dedicated entirely to a single species in the wild. For the Maasai, the elephant represented a model for human society. For the Samburu, the elephant is a totem they have revered for centuries. WALKING THUNDER is a visual and poetic alarm call from both the Western and Indigenous perspective that sees in the elephant, our peer, a central pillar of existence. Beneath their skin, their minds and ours are inextricably linked. Their future is our fate. WALKING THUNDER is not merely a wildlife book, it is a testament and manifesto to the future of the elephant and humanity's relationship to the biosphere." — Cyril Christo READ MORE

Gerald Förster: Nocturnal Gerald Förster: Nocturnal—Signed
Soft bound limited edition book in slipcase. 360 copies signed and numbered by the artist is issued with one of three original 8x10 inch prints, each limited to an edition of 120 each initialed and numbered on verso.

In my latest art project "Nocturnal" I have created intimate, sexually charged scenarios between diverse couples within the context of elaborate and oddly disconcerting landscapes. Each photograph is a nuanced study in the divided nature of human intimacy... each exemplifies the exhilaration of liberated sexuality in a lost, isolated world. The Figures appear ghostly, translucent, immaterial. The bodies are made to seem both magical and insignificant, inhabiting vast and impersonal landscapes.
