"An undisputed masterwork among Japanese photobooks, Eikoh Hosoe and Tatsumi Hijikata's Kamaitachi was originally released in 1969 as a limited edition of 1,000 copies. Hosoe, the renowned photographer, and Hijikata, the founder of ankoku butoh dance, had visited a farming village in northern Japan, where Hijikata improvised a performance inspired by the legend of a weasel-like demon named Kamaitachi. As Hosoe photographed Hijikata's spontaneous interactions with the landscape and with the people they encountered, the two artists together enacted an intense investigation of tradition and an exploration, both personal and symbolic, of contemporary convulsions in Japanese society."—from the publisher's description of the 2009 re-issue

 Focus on Out-Of-Print Books
: Friedlander Friedlander

Photographs by Lee Friedlander. Essay by Peter Galassi. Afterword by Richard Benson. The Museum of Modern Art, New York, 2005. 504 pp., 25 color illustrations and 825 duotones, 11x12". First Edition, Clothbound, Signed! As New!

This week in our continuing series focusing on out-of-print books, we offer a signed, first edition clothbound of the Lee Friedlander monograph. We've seen this going for as much as $500 or more online, but are offering this monumental book for only $240! Order now to assure that you'll receive a copy.

"Lee Friedlander is one of the most important of the 1960s generation of photographers for whom the posture of disinterested objectivity served as a vehicle for passionate personal inquiries. His large body of work-he most often produces extended series of pictures on a chosen theme, then publishes them in book form-is broad in subject matter and supple and complex in style, and focuses on what he calls America's 'social landscape.' At the same time, he has pursued a playful dialogue with artistic tradition-as though open-eyed curiosity about the world, and a sophisticated taste for the wiles of picture-making were one and the same thing." — the publisher.

Maxwell Anderson on his new book Work In Progress

"Work In Progress seemed a fun and satisfying way to offer people something interesting to look at. And that's really what I want, for this book, and I guess to an extent, in general. Enjoy looking at images. Enjoy the beauty of print media. It was actually rather exciting for me to make WIP, because it was my first time to experiment with full colour Xerox printing. I went down to my local print shop in Deptford, south east London and spent a day printing test sheets out. I'm never sure whether they enjoy working with me or whether I piss them off. They're not used to someone ordering in their own stock of multi-coloured sugar paper, and asking them not to saddle stitch so one can hand bind it with pieces of multi-coloured string!" — Maxwell Anderson

A Closer Look — Night & Day

"The book has the intimate feel of a photo album, or perhaps a slide show. It is wonderfully designed, the boards covered in a shiny dark blue cloth that looks like it may have been apparel fabric in a former life — stretch pants, a light jacket — definitely something from the seventies. Poet (and photographic subject) Rene Ricard lends his handwriting to the cover, as well as a poem written during the year the images were taken that is strikingly self-aware of the fragility of this kind of youthful existence, which for me, encapsulates both the joy and pathos of the photographs." — Sarah Bradley

John Chervinsky on Hourglass, Painting on Door, 2012

Our exhibition featuring work by Julie Blackmon and John Chervinsky closes on September 15th, but before it does we are happy to be able to share with you another statement from Chervinsky on the creation of one of his photographs.

"Earlier this year, and as I was working on the beginning stages of Hourglass, Painting on Door, 2012, my mother became very ill. She actually passed away as the right side of the hourglass was being painted, across the globe in China. After several weeks, I finally felt like working again, and began with the final assembly. I didn't set out to create the image because I happened to be going through a personal crisis, but its final realization was certainly affected by it." — John Chervinsky

David Pollock's Fertile Geometry

"For two years, Pollock photographed in the farmlands of Sasnich Peninsula on Vancouver Island, positioning the subject of farming as both a romantic relationship between man and nature, and as an inescapable interaction with the natural world. The photographs speak of our use of the land, and the title is a play on the idea that nature is non-linear and human beings are decidedly geometric, measureable, and straight edged." — from Judy Natal's review of Fertile Geometry be David Pollock

Walker Evans: <em>American Photographs</em> Walker Evans: American Photographs

"This seventy-fifth anniversary edition of American Photographs, made with new reproductions, recreates the original 1938 edition as closely as possible to make the landmark publication available for a new generation. American Photographs has fallen out of print for long periods of time since it was first published, and even subsequent editions—two of which altered the design and typography of the book in small but significant ways—are often available only at libraries and rare bookstores. this version, like the fiftieth-anniversary edition produced by the museum in 1988, captures the look and feel of the very first edition with the aid of new digital technologies." — the publisher READ MORE
