Aline Smithson's portfolio In Case of Rain

"We live in a world full of technical distractions. I see my children gathered around their computers as though it's a summer campfire, faces aglow, as they peer into a world of friends and fantasy, participating in a new forms of entertainment that further remove them from the childhood that I experienced. — from Aline Smithson's portfolio introduction.

from the book Brut
from the book Brut

Brut by Paul Kranzler

"'Home' in all its iterations is a dominant theme within photography. Approached from infinite different angles, it can provide a wellspring of ideas and inspiration for a photographer, or it can be a comforting shelter to confirm well-worn platitudes. Paul Kranzler is a young photographer who has already proven himself unafraid to stare at the darker side of life as seen in his first two books Land of Milk and Honey and Tom." — from the review by Adam Bell of Brut

House of Love by Dayanita Singh

"South of Delhi, in the plains of Uttar Pradesh, the Taj Mahal stands as a testament to love and devotion. Built by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his beloved wife, Mumtaz Mahal, who tragically died in child birth, the iconic mausoleum took over twenty years to construct. By the end of its construction, Shah Jahan himself was deposed and eventually buried next to his wife — forever resting with his beloved." — from the review by Adam Bell of House of Love

A Closer Look — FOTO.ZINE NR.4

"FOTO.ZINE NR.4 is the newest arrival from Erik van der Weijde, master self-publisher and zine maker. In this newest set of five zines, van der Weijde asked five photographers to collaborate on the series, each book containing a pairing of images from the guest photographer and van der Weijde himself. With contributions from Dutch, French, Swiss and Japanese photographers, FOTO.ZINE NR.4 is a little packet of treasures, a wonderful set of photobooks from a number of amazing contemporary photographers." — Sarah Bradley

Martin Parr's Best Books of the Decade Announced at PhotoIreland Festival

"We all know Martin Parr as the acclaimed photographer and well-seen photobook bibliophile. Mr. Parr recently released the list of his newest category of best books: The Best Books of the Decade. While not as Herculean a task as creating Photobook: A History, vols. I and II with co-author and photo historian Gerry Badger, some serious research, time and passion are required to cull this list down to thirty titles. I do find many of the books on Mr. Parr's list very attractive." — from Melanie McWhorter's post on photo-eye Blog. Read the full post here.

Guy Tillim: Avenue Patrice Lumumba Guy Tillim: Avenue Patrice Lumumba
"The eighty images in this book from Angola, Mozambique, Madagascar, and the Democratic Republic of Congo reveal modern buildings constructed with illusions of prosperity and peace and then left to decay. This collection reflects the intuitive brilliance that is Guy Tillim's hallmark, tells Africa's story of failure and atrophy, and points to the intersection of present-day Africa with its colonial past in countries that were forsaken in the name of progress and the perpetual quest for power." — the publisher READ MORE
