Colette Campbell-Jones's portfolio Stories from Underground

"The underground imagery of the mine is profoundly mythical, an archetype associated with darkness, the unknown and the primordial. Stories from Underground reveal the strange light of a people who have emerged from the mine's conditions of incommensurable darkness, from the Abyss. "—Colette Campbell-Jones

More Info on Todd Hido's Newest Publication: Nymph Daughters

"For those of you who ordered Todd Hido's newest book Nymph Daughters this weekend in good faith that whatever Hido does is gold, well, you might be excited by this extra info. For those of you who need more facts to make your decision, well, now you have it. Todd emailed us this weekend with enthusiasm about his new publication and pointed out that we lacked a very important detail in the listing for the book — the description. It sounds simple-minded, but books without descriptions often frustrate me — and I get to handle most books first hand. I still need the details. Well, here is the info on Nymph Daughters straight from the photographer's mouth:"

Antone's Picks: Pause, to Begin

"This week photo-eye has seen a great deal of high quality photo books come through our door. Mark Power's The Sound of Two Songs and Cuny Janssen's Amami are just a few examples of great books I have continually been pulling off the shelf to take a second, third and even fourth look at. One book in particular came with high anticipation. Pause, to Begin has been on my list of books to get my hands on for some time, and I can honestly say, I am greatly thrilled to add this book to my private collection."

If you are interested in getting a well-educated and intellectual view on this book, I highly suggest reading the fantastic review by George Slade in photo-eye Magazine. Click here to read Slade's full review.

Bruce Weber: O Rio de Janeiro (SIGNED) Bruce Weber: O Rio de Janeiro (SIGNED)
"I love fashion photographs but I never think of them as fashion pictures because I just look at the newspaper and sometimes I see amazing fashion photographs. Or I look at a book by August Sander and I see a lot of fashion in those photographs. I think National Geographic has some of the best fashion I've ever seen. It's always people, if they're expressing a lifestyle or they're wearing something that is very personal. For me, photographs like that bring something to life."—Bruce Weber, from a 1985 interview with Rosemary Carroll

"Magnum photographer Abbas was in Siberia on 9/11, half a world away from the crumbling of the Twin Towers - but fully aware of the questions that would echo for years to come about the nature of Islam, and the fundamentalists who caused such destruction in Allah's name.

In Whose Name: The Islamic World after 9/11 is a collection of 173 black-and-white photographs made by Abbas in 16 countries over a seven-year period as he explored the Muslim world's response to the "jihadists in their midst." He asked, "How does Islam, a religion, sustain a political ideology - Islamism?" —From Sara Terry's review of In Whose Name? with photographs by Abbas

"Mix Larry Sultan and Mike Mandel's Evidence with some of Cindy Sherman's Film Stills, add a whole lot of Joan Fontcuberta, print the results on the cheapest paper you can find and you'll still be a million miles away from Koen Hauser's latest book, De Luister van het Land.

Koen Hauser specializes in strange manipulations; of children, anatomy models, archive pictures and himself. For De Luister van het Land, Hauser was let loose on the 11 million images of the Spaarnestaad Photo Archive. Free to roam the archive, Hauser becomes the master of our imaginations, manipulating himself into the archival narrative to make images that Hausers labels performance, images intended to "invoke the spirit of creation." —From Colin Pantall's review of De Luister van het Land with photographs by Koen Hauser



"Olof Jarlbro's book, Stonefactory, shows the lives of Nepalese workers in a pair of stone mills outside of Kathmandu where bare hands and strong backs are the tools. Jarlbro's black and white images highlight hardworking people going through their lives with dignity. The photographs show no escape from the work, piles of stones of various size fill the background and edges of the frames in nearly every image." —From Tom Leininger's review of Stonefactory with photographs by Olof Jarlbro

Roger Ballen: Boarding House Roger Ballen: Boarding House—Signed

Now in its second printing. Extremely low quantities in stock.

"Boarding House shows an imaginary space of transient residence, of coming and goings, of people without homes, sheltering in an abode that they are using for their immediate survival. The structure is basic and fundamental and it is furnished with objects that are necessarily for an elementary existence. Remnants function here as physical symbols of events that have occurred in this space; broken pieces of a functional reality exist as the leftovers of scenarios that were played out here."—the publisher READ MORE

Roger Ballen: Shadow Chamber Roger Ballen: Shadow Chamber—Signed

Now in its second printing. Extremely low quantities in stock.

"Roger Ballen (b.1950) challenges the ways in which we perceive the 'reality' of photography. His striking, ambiguous images of people, animals and objects posed in mysterious, cell-like rooms occupy the grey area between fact and fiction, blurring the boundaries between documentary photography and art forms such as painting, theatre and sculpture. This latest body of work, made over the last four years, is a product of the decades Ballen has spent working with and photographing the common folk of rural and suburban South Africa."—the publisher READ MORE

Roger Ballen: Outland Roger Ballen: Outland—Signed

Now in its second printing. Extremely low quantities in stock.

"This fascinating photographic study has been twenty years in the making. Ballen first began photographing the villages of rural whites in South Africa in the 1980s and has continued up to the present, documenting this fringe of South African society whose Apartheid privileges have now completely vanished. The viewer is confronted with a troubling narrative in which the inhabitants are progressively participating in their own representation." —the publisher
