New Work to be Released by Mitch Dobrowner

photo-eye is excited to announce that Mitch Dobrowner will be releasing new work October 11th.

Continuing his storm series, these new photographs criss-cross Tornado Alley and the Great Plains, continuing to push the bounds of his photography, seeking out the "nastiest, most unstable" weather possible.

Dobrowner's storm series work was recently featured in Time Magazine's Lightbox:

"Words are inadequate to describe the experience of photographing this immense power and beauty, and the most exciting part is with each trip I really don't know what to expect. But today I see these storms as living, breathing things. They are born when the conditions are right, they gain strength as they grow, they fight against their environment to stay alive, they change form as they age, and eventually they die. They take on so many different aspects, personalities and faces. My only hope is that my images can do justice to these amazing phenomena of nature."

The new works, one of which is shown above, will be released by Dobrowner on October 11th. No other new works are viewable until then. Please contact photo-eye Associate Director Anne Kelly to receive additional information about this exciting release. photo-eye gallery may also be reached by phone at 505-988-5152 x202.

Chinese Sentiment by Shen Wei

"Judging solely by the numerous photobooks and news reports that have inundated the West in the past ten years, modern China appears alternatively as a skyscraper laden wonderland or a threatening economic and political juggernaut. Rarely do more nuanced reports or reflections on these radical changes appear in the West. Avoiding the jingoistic and sensationalist tenor of recent books, Shen Wei's first book, Chinese Sentiment, offers an antidote to the neon tigers and faceless masses of recent photographic work on China." — from the review of Chinese Sentiment by Adam Bell

Mexico Roma by Graciela Iturbide

"Graciela Iturbide's newest book Mexico Roma feels and looks like one (beautifully designed) volume from a traveler's archive of scrapbooks. However, this is the only volume published. If its companions exist, they are yet to be made. At 6.5 by 8 inches and just 96 pages, it's the size and shape of a journal that would fit easily into a purse or camera case." — from the review of Mexico Roma by Alexandra Huddleston

The Heath by Andy Sewell

"It is on rare occasion that one opens a book of photographs reflective of a specific place that speak softly to a personal journey of subtle meditation, while at the same time contains imagery so moving as to leave the viewer contemplating their own experience. This is where I found myself after quietly absorbing the images in Andy Sewell's self-published book The Heath, pondering a personal sense of place and considering my own ideal of solitary reflection. " — from the review of The Heath by Antone Dolezal

A Closer Look — Dondoro

"Dondoro, a slim and elegant volume from Estelle Hanania, is a collaboration with the late master puppeteer and puppet maker Hoichi Okamoto. Named after the theater Okamoto founded and published after his death in 2010, the book is a meditation Okamoto's on art — strange and somber images of puppets that seem eerily alive while they simultaneously show the magnificently skilled hand of the crafter." — Sarah Bradley

Joel Sternfeld: First Pictures Joel Sternfeld: First Pictures
"This is the first book of Sternfeld's largely unseen early colour photographs. In 1969 Sternfeld began working with a 35 mm camera and Kodachrome film, and First Pictures contains works from this time until 1980. Here Sternfeld develops traits that appear in his mature work: irony, a politicised view of America, concern for the social condition." — the publisher READ MORE
