Yutaka Takanashi: Tokyoites Yutaka Takanashi: Tokyoites
A rare, and very unusually produced publication by one of the original Provoke members.
"Yutaka Takanashi's work creates a biographical record of Tokyo and its residents. The world within his viewfinder gives the sense of a greater composition that extends beyond the focal center to include details to the extremities of the frame."—READ MORE

 photo-eye Magazine Reviews
© Eddie Adams
© Eddie Adams

This week in photo-eye's Magazine:

"The astounding thing about Maggie Taylor is that she pushes forward by reaching backward. It was a treat while looking at the early images in this book to recall that at one point my Yale classmate (an undergraduate philosophy major and freshman admirer of Chaucer's smale foweles) was making fairly straightforward images of collected objects. Still-or stilled, as they often included real fish, bruised pears, dewy eggs, and stuffed birds-life constructions with a healthy sprinkling of Surrealism and Braque." — from George Slade's review of Maggie Taylor's Album

"Circus is a beautifully crafted book, as is always the case with any offering by The Eakins Press. The question remains as to whether all the effort and expense of beautiful reproduction and classically understated, intelligent book design (by Catherine Waters) was worth it..."— from Richard Gordon's review of Peter Kayafas and Deborah Walk's Circus

"Vietnam Photographs by Eddie Adams. Published by Umbrage, 2009."Eddie Adams," writes his widow Alyssa Adams in her Author's Note to Vietnam, "would never had let this book be published if he were alive." It is a strange way to open a monograph on one of the most honored photojournalists of the Vietnam era."— from Charles Dee Mitchell's review of Vietnam with photographs by Eddie Adams.

 In My Library
This week's In My Library selection is by Associate Gallery Director, Anne Kelly. Anne selected The Shadows with photographs by Debbie Fleming Caffery.

"In 1990, the Smithsonian published a softbound monograph on a photographer born and raised in Louisiana by the name of Debbie Fleming Caffery. Her dark, haunting images of sugar cane workers nearly overpowered the book, creating a yearning by all who purchased it to see more." — the Publisher
 365 A Book A Day

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

Anonymous edited by Ewoudt Boonstra.
"Are faces more important than bodies? You look at bodies, see their movement, perhaps admire them, but most of your eye-time with other people is spent focused on their faces. By obliterating their own features or those of others, the people in this book altered the meaning of everyday images whose original purpose was simply to commemorate happiness. By collecting these pictures in one volume, Anonymous editor Ewoudt Boonstra invites his viewers to consider themes of love, hate and identity."

War Is Only Half the Story with photographs by Kathryn Cook, Natela Grigalashvili, Tinka Dietz, Pep Bonet and Christine Fenzl.
"'War is Only Half the Story, Vol Two' features the work of 2008 grant winner Kathryn Cook ('Memory Denied: Turkey and the Armenian Genocide') as well as special first finalist Natela Grigalashvili and finalists Tinka Dietz, Christine Fenzl and Pep Bonet. Published by The Aftermath Project. "

Elevator to the Gallows edited by Gerald Matt.
"Designed to mimic the look of dimestore crime novels, Elevator to the Gallows juxtaposes works by Banks Violette, Miles Davis, John Huston and Weegee with an essay by Luc Sante."

Transitions with photographs by Fredrik Marsh.
"American photographer Fredrik Marsh's images tell the story of the great societal upheaval at the end of the twentieth century from an unusual perspective. The project deals in general with the passing of time and with change."

Mobil 100 with photographs by Martin Fengel and Bernd Zimmer.
"The Mobil 100 project by Martin Fengel and Bernd Zimmer uses the factors of space and time to interlink controversial pictures with interpretations, and relationships of form and content. Imaginary potential is transformed within the tangible reality of Martin Fengel's photographs, while reality is rendered visible in the imaginary world of Bernd Zimmer's works on paper. "

Martin Fengel with photographs by Martin Fengel.
"Beauty permeates Martin Fengel's photographs. Without really being able to pin down where it exactly lies, and knowing that in an age where we can no longer call on the classical concepts of the beautiful to talk of beauty is like walking on thin ice, it still seems to me to represent one essential feature of his pictures."

Everywhere - Gather Yourself - Stand with photographs by Yoshiko Seino.
"This new book, Everywhere - Gather Yourself - Stand consists of her 48 recent photographs taken with a 35 mm camera. Unfortunately, Seino Yoshiko died on May 19, 2009 at age of 46. This book became the last message from her as it was co-edited and titled by Yoshiko herself is quoted from Paul Celan's poem."
