Tom Chambers on Dreaming in Reverse

"In the past few years, photographer Tom Chambers has received much attention for his works. His series Entropic Kingdom has earned particular recognition when it places second at 2010 Px3 in Paris in the digital category. Images "Saccharine Perch" and "The Goatherd" took first place at FotoWeek DC and at the 2009 Worldwide Photography Gala Awards respectively. In 2009 Chambers was invited to participate in the Fotografica Bogota sponsored by Fotomuseo, the National Museum of Photography in Colombia. A biennial, Fotografica 2009 Bogota was a gathering of sixteen international and twenty-four Colombian photographers. Chambers has also been invited to participate in the 2010 Salon d'Automne where one of his images was chosen for the official poster." — from Anne Kelly's post on photo-eye Blog

Nexus Press Books: Clarissa Sligh's Voyage(r)

"I am sure many of you bibliophiles out there know about the great, and unfortunately now defunct, Nexus Press. Well, there are still a few of their books out there to be had including some of my favorites — Clifton Meador's (Whisky) Defense and Memory Lapse, Bill Burke's Mine Fields and Phillip Perkis's Warwick Mountain Series. I recently had the pleasure of hosting a book signing for Clarissa Sligh, a photographer and a bookmaker whose work is featured in one of the Nexus publications. Another of my Nexus favorites is Sligh's Voyage(r) — a Smythe sewn, duotone offset printed soft cover in an edition of 80. Subtitled Tourist Map to Japan, this volume is not just an expression of Sligh's own experience in Japan, but she also takes on the facts and artist interpretations of the bombing of this country by her own country during WWII. Completing the presentation is a small cloth bag which holds the book and whose pattern brings to mind a Japanese fan motif. A few signed copies in stock." — from Melanie McWhorter's post on photo-eye Blog

Emmet Gowin. Edith, Danville, Virginia, 1980 Emmet Gowin. Edith, Danville, Virginia, 1980
Excerpt from the book The Model Wife, by Arthur Ollman

"Emmet Gowin is a contemplative man. Contemplation is a solitary activity. It requires stillness, time, and focus. He believes that the connections between things are not always apparent. He speaks slowly, deliberately, poetically. Gowin continually shows an interest in nuance, in subtle distinctions...READ MORE

The book also contains an essay by poet and NPR commentator Andrei Codrescu who explores Miksys' photography and the context of the post-Soviet world where the pictures were taken."— the publisher

"When I first became aware of Jonnie Craig's work I was shocked. His photos were blurred, fogged, and from a traditional stance, everything that could be wrong with them was. Then his work was published and I really started looking, and suddenly I thought 'this is brilliant" —Gavin Watson, photographer

from the book
from the book 

"Without a doubt, Tim Davis is one of the top five most savvy, wry photographers working today. His images make no bones about coming at you, forcefully, and making you wrestle with the issues he nonchalantly tosses at you. Nonchalantly, like a professional baseball player calmly tossing a laser from third to first and then looking down and kicking a clump of dirt that annoyed him. Davis's photographs make a beeline for your intellectual-visceral-visual cortex and force you to reconcile irony, truth, and amazing insight in a single frame." —From George Slade's review of The New Antiquity with photographs by Tim Davis

from the book 100 flowers
from the book 100 flowers

"China is a popular topic for photographers. The country's economic transformation, large factories and the environmental fall out of this progress have fueled the majority of the imagery. Louis Porter goes in the opposite direction and focuses on the smaller scale, the urban constructed floral landscape. His book 100 Flowers is a small soft cover bursting with the colors of flowers in various states of planting in Beijing just before the 2008 Olympic Games." —From Tom Leininger's review of 100 Flowers with photographs by Louis Porter

"Wien 2 is a collection of 140 photographs taken in Vienna, Austria between 1995 and 2009. Many of the images are exterior architectural views that deal with the process of urban regeneration. The photographs have an ambiguous sense of place because they avoid obvious landmarks and are for a large part untitled. Oberdanner uses a snapshot aesthetic that attempts to create a rhythm of seeing. Her approach is similar to a 19th century flâneur, wandering around cities as a detached observer in an effort to comprehend urban phenomena and modernity." —From John Mathews' review of Wien 2 with photographs by Annelies Oberdanner
