Michelle Frankfurter's Destino

"Meaning both 'destination' and 'destiny' in Spanish, Destino portrays the perilous journey across Mexico of undocumented Central American migrants as they attempt to enter the United States in pursuit of a better life. The unprecedented wave of Central American migration to the U.S. began in the 1980s - the consequence of bloody civil wars, crippling economic policies and relentless poverty. In a wandering odyssey, migrants travel by rail, relying on the network of freight trains inexorably lurching across Mexico." — Michelle Frankfurter

 photo-eye Auctions

This week's highlights include searing looks at two brutal instances of post-war political repression: an extraordinarily rare signed copy of Koen Wessing's Chili, September 1973, which examines the aftermath of Augusto Pinochet's coup d'etat of that year and Joesf Koudelka's Invaze 68, whose 250 images were smuggled out of Czechoslovakia following the Soviet invasion of 1968.

Also on the block, the Bill Brandt Archive's lavish publication of his complete nudes; a pristine signed copy of Lee Friedlander's The American Monument; a lovely example of Ed Van Der Elsken's stream-of-consciousness globe-trotting odyssey, Sweet Life and much more. Be sure to check out Eric Miles' presentation below!

Lauren Henkin: <em>Still Standing, Standing Still</em> Lauren Henkin: Still Standing, Standing Still

"This series began in 2010 when I became obsessed with a single tree. Slowly — around and around and around — I examined it in varying light and perspective. It was alone, with its scars unclothed, threatened by vines, but still standing. A branch had broken off by lighting or another violent act. The tree didn't seem to mind, the flaw added to its power, a permanent reminder that it had survived the violation and was unashamed of the defect." — Lauren Henkin

About the Limited Edition A limited edition of 10 books are presented in a handmade maple/white oak display box and a loose print.

A Closer Look - 100 Polaroids


"Patrick Sansone's new limited edition book 100 Polaroids does just this, it takes me somewhere else for a small moment. There is a seductive air of mystery in many of these photographs, each image tells its own story. And this is what is so refreshing about Sansone's book; I can look at each image, gain a small insight and move to the next." — Antone Dolezal

Loose Plates - Loteria Fotografica Mexicana, fotoTaroc and Law & Order Gets Me Through the Night


"We are surrounded by fascinating books here at photo-eye, but I am always interested to see the books that aren't exactly 'books' in the traditional sense. Unbound, they aren't quite portfolios either, but intriguing collections of images presented in unusual ways — I'll post about five of them this week. Each are beautiful objects re-imagining the way photography can be presented in an intimate form, changing the way we view and interact with the work. Today we have Loteria Fotografica Mexicana and fotoTaroc, both by Jill Hartley, and Law & Order Gets Me Through the Night by Laura Noel." — Sarah Bradley

Loose Plates - Trade & Pacific Northwest Postcards


"Trade is a small envelope of images from Chad States. The presentation makes it feel like an invitation, a special envelope with embossed gold lettering and details, giving its contents weight and preciousness. When opened, a line of gold text reads 'Would you like to share your pics with me?', the inside pocket holding 25 photographs of men."

"Contained within a box with a beautiful signed image on the front, Bobby Abrahamson's Pacific Northwest Postcards are part of his series of handmade books. 44 postcards are collected in 5 plastic sleeves; each postcard is its own work of art, an archival pigment print, hand-glued, trimmed, signed and editioned by Abrahamson." — Sarah Bradley

from the book The Mark of Abel


Lydia Panas' The Mark of Abel


"'I first saw Lydia Panas' work from The Mark of Abel series when it was exhibited at Foley Gallery, New York, in early 2010. Back then, I remember thinking that the photographs - muted group portraits, in which obscurely connected individuals stand before anonymous rural backdrops — were engaging but hard to access. Each photograph is simultaneously a tempting puzzle, its subtle visual clues inviting you to 'work it out,' and a rebuke, resisting your attempts to draw any conclusion about its subject." — Faye Robson from the review of The Mark of Abel by Lydia Panas

Swiss Photobooks from 1927 to the Present


"Books on books seem to have become a genre unto itself within the expanding world of photobooks. Beginning with Fotografía Pública and The Book of 101 Books, the genre was given its most comprehensive treatment with Gerry Badger and Martin Parr's groundbreaking work, The Photobook, Vol. 1 and 2 (I've read a third volume is on the way), and continued with Aperture's recent volumes on Japan and Latin America, as well as their upcoming releases on Dutch and Chinese photobooks." — Adam Bell from the review of Swiss Photobooks from 1927 to the Present by Peter Pfrunder
