Interviews: The Archive of Modern Conflict

"When Googling the Archive of Modern Conflict, you will find precious little information aside from the AMC website displaying their fabulous publications. In the other tidbits found on the web the praise for AMC is high, as is the astonishment at the vast and varied archive housed in Kensington, London, but solid pieces of information are few. Each report comments on the mysterious nature of AMC, which we weren't sure how to interpret until we started our interview process."

Best Books: A Closer Look - Hillbilly Heroin, Honey

"Hillbilly Heroin, Honey is a complicated book by Swedish photographer Hannah Modigh depicting the residents of St. Charles, VA, a small coal mining town with high poverty and unemployment. The book's exterior, black with gold lettering and a small debossed pattern around the edge, is not unlike photo albums from the late 70s." — from Sarah Bradley's post on photo-eye Blog

Best Books: A Closer Look - A Series of Unfortunate Events

"Michael Wolf's A Series of Unfortunate Events is an interesting commentary on humanity's coming of age in the digital networking era. These photographs are the banal moments that usually take up a majority of our existence. The strange thing about Wolf's images are they consist of exploited occurrences of our everyday life - oddities captured by Google Street View. " — from Antone Dolezal's post on photo-eye Blog.

For a Language to Come by Takuma Nakahira

"Blurred, grainy and out-of-focus was the modus operandi of the Japanese Provoke photographers of the early 1970s, and Takuma Nakahira was the intellectual granddaddy of them all. This reprint of his classic For a Language to Come, is shot with harsh black and white images printed full bleed across every page and is essential viewing for anybody with an interest in the twentieth-century history of photography." — from the review by Colin Pantall of Takuma Nakahira's For a Language to Come

Wrong by Asger Carlsen

"Carlsen has taken the "of his time" wizardry of Jerry Uelsmann and brought it into the digi-verse, black and white and kooky as ever. I know it's not crazy original to make the comparison, as everyone who creates bizarre, surreal composites must resent the immediacy of the thought. But as a child of the computer age, I've never been able to grasp the sense of wonder people must have had when they first saw a good version of Uelsmann's work. That "I know it's not real, but it looks like it" feeling is hard to come by these days." — from the review by Jonathan Blaustein of Asger Carlsen's Wrong

JH Engstrom: La Residence JH Engstrom: La Residence
"La Residence by Swedish photographer JH Engstrom is a stunning book showcasing the artist's ability to building deep relationships with everyday encounters. Arranged by the Contretype Photo Center, Engstrom was awarded a grant for two separate stays in Brussels, where these photographs originated. The objective of the artist's sojourn was for Engstrom to analyze his own creative development while creating a specific view of the city. The result of Engstrom's efforts came forth in a beautifully printed journal that weaves subtle commentary with street scenes of the city and intimate portraits of Brussels' residence. The production quality of La Residence is apparent, not only in the printing quality, but in the numerous gatefolds highlighting a series of portraits and still-lifes of everyday occurrences." — from Antone Dolezal's piece in the New Arrivals Newsletter.
