Eva Timothy's portfolio Lost in Learning: The Art of Discovery

"Introducing new angles to iconic images from centuries ago, history comes unfrozen for a moment to make its mark on the present. Taken through the historical lenses which inspired innovation and enshrouded in photographic sfumato, these images entice us to look deeper into the passions that inspired the great figures of an age on their journeys. Perhaps looking deeper we will discover for ourselves the souls of these great ones and in their lives find a reflection of ourselves. Learners...not simply of fiscal necessity...but willful wanderers into the great unknown."— Eva Timothy

 photo-eye Book Reviews
from the book Coney Island
from the book Coney Island

"No photographer in their right mind had ever meticulously brought back home a sample of stinky Coney Island trash," write Sophie and Bruce Gilden in their slim wax paper catalogue (written in French and English) for Baptiste Lignel and Johnny Miller's evocative Coney Island. Coney Island, which won a prize at this spring's New York Photo Festival, is like the real Coney Island - vivacious, brazen and decidedly unsanitized (and maybe even unsanitary!)." —From Joscelyn Jurich's review of Coney Island with photographs by Johnny Miller and Baptiste Lignel

from the book American Photography 25
from the book American Photography 25
"America Photography 25 (not to be confused with the monthly magazine of the same name) is the 25th silver anniversary edition of one of the most interesting annuals ever published. AP25 is very serious, elaborately produced, full of professional photography — much already published in leading media outlets — and selected by an all star print media/art jury lead by Kathy Ryan of the New York Times. It is almost all color and all sharp, and almost all commercial photography. It also includes photojournalism, self generated personal projects, still life, illustration, editorial and advertising, and a pinch of scientific photography that adds to the stew." —From Alex Sweetman's review of American 25 photographs selected by Kathy Ryan

from the book Case Study Homes
from the book Case Study Homes
"The community of Baseco, located at the mouth of the Pasig River near the harbor of Manila, Philippines, is a haven for those coming to the metropolis from the countryside. New residents construct houses for themselves out of the city's refuse, erecting huts that act as life rafts on the sandy shores until their builders can establish themselves on firmer ground." —From Mary Goodwin's review of Case Study Homes with photographs by Peter Bialobrzeski

from the book 509
from the book 509
"Confronted with an essentially text-free book, I scour it for any clue to what I am dealing with. On the colophon page of Pamela Pecchio's 509, we learn that the photographs were taken in 2005 in Burlington, North Carolina. The book's title remains unexplained, and Pecchio's two epigraphs come from two radically different ends of the literary spectrum. First there is a fairly lengthy quote from Gaston Bachelard's The Poetics of Space, providing the project its intellectual bona fides. The next is pure hoakum courtesy of the poet Edgar A. Guest, "It takes a heap o' livin in a house t' make a home.""—From Charles Dee Mitchell's review of 509 with photographs by Pamela Pecchio

Walker Evans: Havana 1933 (with 3 Prints!!) Walker Evans: Havana 1933 (with 3 Prints!!)
A wonderful trio of later prints from Evans' 1933 trip to Cuba that includes one of his most famous images, "Man in White Suit" (shown at left). Evans' traveled to Cuba just a few years before he was hired by Roy Stryker for the Farm Security Administration. He was on assignment to produce pictures for Carleton Beals' leftist polemic, The Crime of Cuba ("Streetcar, El Cerro District" appears there).
Trying to get at the incredibly complex ways that Evans' Cuba pictures mingle art and social fact, the poet Andrei Codrescu has written, "He tried to photograph misery, but shapeliness got in the way".—READ MORE
Fine prints also available from Willy Ronis; Helen Levitt; Danny Lyon, and others.

Publisher's Showcase: Little Brown Mushroom

"Last week when I announced the Publisher's Showcase for Seems, I had hoped to announce that we had added Little Brown Mushroom to the list as well. I like to include the mission statement and as LBM's did not appear on their blog or website, I emailed requesting this info from Charlie or Carrie at the office of the imprint. They deferred this request to founder and photographer, Alec Soth. Soth, in his candid and humorous style, emailed me this in response..." — from Melanie McWhorter's post on photo-eye Blog
