Eikoh Hosoe: The Butterfly Dream (Kazuo Ohno) Eikoh Hosoe: The Butterfly Dream (Kazuo Ohno)
Along with Hijikata Tatsumi, Kazuo Ohno is regarded as the founding father of the Japanese dance form known as Butoh. According to Don McLeod, a current practitioner of the form, "it is easy to see how this dance, done in a trance-like state, on bent legs with rolled up eyes was disconcerting to the conservative Japanese modern dance community...Hijikata's first dances were often grotesque, twisted, dark and perverse. Ohno's butoh is more ethereal and floating, ever reaching to the light." A fact which also makes it extremely camera friendly. It has been written of him that his very presence is an "artistic fact." This lavish production, with a case designed by Tadanori Yokoo, commemorates the 100th birthday of Ohno. A stunning book! Highly recommended.

Guantanamo by Edmund Clark

"In Guantanamo: If the Light Goes Out, Ed Clark continues his investigations on how confinement affects prisoners. 'The starting point was going out with detainees who had been released and seeing how they were surviving,' he says. 'These people had been in prison for years, had never been charged but still had this massive label of being the worst of the worst stuck on them. I was interested in what their personal spaces said about them and if they were any traces of what they had experienced in Guantanamo.'" — from the review by Colin Pantall of Edmund Clark's Guantanamo

The Sound of Two Songs by Mark Power

"The title of Power's book, The Sound of Two Songs, refers to the notion that when many melodies are played together, it becomes impossible to hear any one tune clearly — a lyrical philosophy that gives voice to an extra dimension of intent in Power's photographic journey. And as there are many intricate layers that make up a country's history, this book speaks volumes to the photographer's ability to weave together an intelligent portrayal of Poland's history while also creating a story and landscape that is very much his own." — from the review by Antone Dolezal's of The Sound of Two Songs

A Closer Look — Lonely Boy Mag

"A new satirical series of men's magazines is the latest installment from the uniquely clever publishing company Little Brown Mushroom. The first issue of Alec Soth's Lonely Boy Mag., described as 'Midwestern Exotica,' takes a few strange and surreal twists and turns for the viewing and reading experience. At first, I liked the idea of this little publication as an object. It's modest in size and the printing quality and design are very well done. But the more time I spent with it, the more I enjoyed the stories inside." — Antone Dolezal

 Book of the Week
Hans-Christian Schink: 1h Hans-Christian Schink: 1h
"Negative film can only be exposed to a certain point, beyond which the photochemical process is reversed and the negative's darkest areas become light again. For Hans-Christian Schink's series 1h, a 1955 picture by Minor White, titled 'Black Sun,' was a source of inspiration. 1h employs an effect called 'real solarization.' For 1h, Schink deliberately chose to combine this process with a very long exposure, achieving effects of abstraction and blur." —the publisher READ MORE
