JH Engstöm: Sketch of Home (Limited Edition of 250!) JH Engstöm: Sketch of Home (Limited Edition of 250!)
Engström interweaves self-portraits with landscapes, nude portraits of his friends with faded interiors. The result is a dynamic and graphic sequence of images that Engström considers as his reflection of the tensions between loneliness and intimacy, and the disparities between events and elements in his life.

Michael Kenna's portrait of the city of Venice: Venezia
"This crumbling jewel of Northern Italy, built completely on marshland, is steeped in history and irresistibly imbued with romance. Known as "The City of Light" and "Queen of the Adriatic," Venezia is indelibly tinged with dark intrigue, decadence and decay."
Hardcover and Limited Edition Copies Due in March.

Todd Hido's Newest Monograph A Road Divided
"With an unquestionably modern effect, he often frames the compositions from inside his car, photographing straight through the windshield, using it as an additional lens and bringing a sense of timing and moment to these stationary scenes."
Signed Copies Due in Feburary.

Aline Diepois' The Dust Book
"A warm foul-smelling wind whips up the sand in this desolate land; dust lingers in the air, cloaking the strange landscape in a dull greyish veil. Farther on, there's a sign that says 'Dust Storm May Exist.'"

Mark Edward Harris' The Way of the Japanese Bath
"While all the primeval geological and geothermal rumblings under Japan have set off devastating volcanic eruptions, tsunamis, and earthquakes (ten percent of the world's volcanic activity occurs in Japan), they have also provided the 127 million inhabitants of the island nation on the Ring of Fire with a very unique way of life."

Mark Edward Harris' Wanderlust
"This 2nd and expanded edition of Wanderlust continues the globetrotters's photographic explorations with new images from Peru, Italy, India, North Korea, South Africa, Kenya, Oman, and the United Arab Emirates."

A new self-titled monograph on Jacob Holdt
"Danish photographer Jacob Holdt is internationally revered for his vision of America, as portrayed in classic volumes like American Pictures and United States 1970?1975. It is a vision which has inspired many, both in its extremity (the director Lars von Trier is reputedly a fan) and in its tenacity."

An Autobiography of Lisette Model by Eugenia Parry:
Shooting Off My Mouth
"Shooting Off My Mouth Spitting Into the Mirror inaugurates a new direction in photography and photography writing, as author Eugenia Parry offers an interpretation of the work of Lisette Model (1901?1983) through a meta-fictional soliloquy "by" the artist."
