 photo-eye Book Reviews
from the book In the Face of Silence
from the book In the Face of Silence
In the Face of Silence by Christophe Agou

"Documenting the rural Forez region of France, Christophe Agou's touching book In The Face of Silence offers a glimpse into the lives and hardships of the several older family farmers struggling to survive off the land. At first glance, it might be easy to dismiss this work as another romantic photo-essay about rural life, but that would be a mistake. In addition to being born and raised in the region, which does not necessarily void this risk, Agou has clearly befriended his subjects and invested the time to explore and engage with them." — from the review of In the Face of Silence by Adam Bell

Topographie by Andreas Gehrke

"My photographic background is in newspaper journalism, which has instilled in me a belief that a strong picture should be able to stand on its own without the aid of words. Topographie by Andreas Gehrke challenged that notion. On my first viewing of the book, I went through it without reading any supporting texts. Approaching the book this way left me feeling like I was missing something. I needed context to understand why this small patch of wooded land in Berlin, the subject of the book, is so important. Luckily, the two essays were able to fill in the blanks for me." — from the review of Topographie by Tom Leininger

A Closer Look — From the Bottom of a Well

"I know I'm not alone in noticing a trend in photobooks and projects depicting China. Many photographers have been drawn to the photographically seductive boom of industry and urban growth, and resulting environmental disaster, while others like Chinese born Shen Wei have looked towards the human aspect, subtly investigating the Chinese psyche. Whether in response to this attention or spurred on by it, the Chinese government appears to be making an effort to continue photographic interest in the country, though perhaps in a more controlled manner. Chinese photo festivals seem to be inviting an increasing number of American photographers and photoworld professionals to speak and show work, and government-sponsored tours have been hand-picking photographers to document the country." — from Sarah Bradley's post on photo-eye Blog

The book is also available in a limited edition of 50 signed copies and includes an 11x14" archive pigment print. Purchase book or limited edition.

 Book of the Week
Gregory Halpern: A Gregory Halpern: A
"In A, American photographer Gregory Halpern (born 1977) leads us on a ramble through the brilliant and ruined streets of the United States Rust Belt. The cast of characters, both human and animal, are portrayed with compassion and respect by this native son of Buffalo (now professor at the Rochester Institute of Technology). The cities he is drawn to — Baltimore, Cincinnati, Omaha, Detroit — share similar histories with his hometown, and in this post-apocalyptic springtime all forms of life emerge and run riot." —the publisher READ MORE

"Flamboya includes photographs taken across Africa — from Cape Town to Kenya to Zambia — that disregard traditional boundaries of genres and tackle the problematic bond between photography, imperialism, and the colonial imagination. Viviane Sassen's aesthetic vocabulary suggestively recalls documentary as much as staged photography and relies on a visual economy that invites the formulation of multiple interpretations. Seen through Sassen's lens, the ethnic Other interrogates the traditional nexus laid between vision, knowledge, and power, which lies at the heart of the history and ideology of photography." — publisher description
