Helen Levitt: New York, NY, 1971 (Three Roosters) -- cover image of Slide Show Helen Levitt: New York, NY, 1971 (Three Roosters) -- cover image of Slide Show
An iconic Levitt image!! Helen Levitt (1913-2009) was one of the most important figures in twentieth century photography. Her work was shown at the Museum of Modern Art in 1943, very early on in the history of the Museum's photography department. And, though William Eggleston gets much deserved credit for his groundbreaking show of color work in 1976, Levitt's color photographs were shown there in 1972. They were on view there recently, as part of the show Pictures by Women: A History of Modern Photography

Colette Campbell-Jones on Stories from Underground — An Interview with Anne Kelly, Part Two


Histories — Colette Campbell-Jones



Colette Campbell-Jones
"A number of years ago I met Colette Campbell-Jones at the Photo Alliance Our World Portfolio review in San Francisco. I was immediately drawn to her work — Campbell-Jones' work translates oral histories from South Wales into visual images — not only do these images contain historical context with a personal twist, but they are hauntingly beautiful images full of emotion. The coal mining industry is not a subject I had thought of as interesting, but after meeting Campbell-Jones I have found myself fascinated. It is my opinion that truly great art is capable of shedding a new light on the overlooked." — Anne Kelly

Reportage & Crime Scene Photography with Enrique Metinides and Watanabe Yukichi

"Two new books, Series by Enrique Metinides and A Criminal Investigation by Watabe Yukichi, continue in this tradition of making an art book out of the everyday, but often horrific, nature of criminal and news-related photography. The publication Series with the work of legendary Mexican photographer Enrique Metinides showcases work from his over 50 year career as a newspaper photojournalist in the capital of his home country. Metinides was faced with suicides, fires, explosions many other tragic events, but in the book format they are displayed quite unlike the one shot 'signature' image that may have accompanied the respective news story."— Melanie McWhorter on Series by Enrique Metinides.




"The book is bound in textured linen-type cloth, wrapped with an elastic band, and affixed with a debossed plate on the cover all modeling materials and devices used during the time of the said criminal events: an old typewriter to create all the reports and the many Manila folders to house the paperwork. This same type treatment follows throughout the book updating the reader on important evidence in the criminal case. The pages are bound in Japanese style, images printed on a creamy paper giving the effect of aged newsprint and each blank page is solid black." — Melanie McWhorter on A Criminal Investigation by Watabe Yukichi.

New images from Photographer's Showcase artist Martin Miller

We are pleased to announce new images from Photographer's Showcase artist Martin Miller in his Weapons of Mass Destruction 2 portfolio.


"Although the term, WMD, has become a part of our daily lexicon, it remains very much an abstraction for most of us. This series of images offers a retrospective look at some of these weapons which include aircraft involved in bombing civilian populations in WWII, the development and delivery of the first atomic weapons, and those of the subsequent Cold War arms race." — Martin Miller

Suburbia Mexicana by Alejandro Cartegena

"Ostensibly, Alejandro Cartagena's exquisitely crafted photographs taken around the Mexican city of Monterrey are meant to examine a localized tale of environmental degradation amidst rampant development. And they do. This monograph, which represents several of Mr. Cartagena's interconnected mini-series, definitely brings together the narrative of a place in time. The photographs are supremely well composed, and deal with color and light with equal measure. The project, published here in a joint effort between Photolucida and Daylight, was immensely well received over the last few years, and the book makes it easy to see why." — from the review of Suburbia Mexicana by Jonathan Blaustein

"On cover of Permanent Error by Pieter Hugo the viewer is greeted by Yakubu Al Hasan. A Medusa-like bale of cables and wires adorns his head while a small rubber tire is slung on his shoulder. This is one of those books that punches you right in the throat before you even open it." — from the review of Permanent Error by Tom Leininger

Elin Høyland: The Brothers Elin Høyland: The Brothers
"When Elin Høyland heard about two elderly brothers, Harald and Mathias Ramen, living together in Tessanden, a small hamlet in rural Norway, she approached them to see if they would collaborate with her on a photographic project about their lives. The result is a fascinating and warmly human study of a way of life that has now almost entirely disappeared." — the publisher READ MORE
