photo-eye is pleased to host Ernesto Bazan, author of Al Campo and BazanCuba for a book signing and artist talk. In 2008, his publishing house BazanPhotos Publishing, released BazanCuba featuring work made during his fourteen years living on and photographing on the island. In May 2009, the book was awarded Best Book of the Year at the New York Photo Festival. In 2011 Bazan published Al Campo, an in-depth color exploration of life in the Cuban countryside.

Ernesto Bazan was born in Palermo on the island of Sicily in 1959. From 1992 to 2006, Bazan lived in and photographed the island of Cuba, documenting the unique time in Cuban history called the Special Period. This body of work has given him the privilege to win some of the world's most prestigious photographic awards, among them The W. Eugene Smith Grant; The Mother Jones Foundation for Photojournalism [Mother Jones International Fund for Documentary Photography], the Dorothea Lang - Paul Taylor prize at Duke University, North Carolina, the World Press Photo award and fellowships from the Alicia Patterson Foundation and the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation.

Selected Works from Sharon Harper

Two of the photographers in our current group exhibition Solar, Sharon Harper and Chris McCaw, recently published their first books. Copies of both are now available.

Harper's book, From Above and Below, published by Radius Books, is a selection of Harpers images that explore the night sky, perception and technology. The images range from photographs to video stills, shot with a variety of cameras, some of which Harper creates using a telescope as a lens. Though some of the images are still photographs, they are made with an interest in motion - such as the images from her series Sun/Moon (trying to see through a telescope) which are included in the Solar exhibit. All of the images present a new way of looking at the night sky and seek a new way of understanding. As Harper told the Pasatiempo in a recent interview, "I'm always looking to learn from photography that I can't see with my eyes."

Measuring 11x14", From Above and Below presents beautiful reproductions of over a decade of Harper's images of the sky and also some views of her notebooks. Last week Chris McCaw told us a little bit about his experience in book publishing and this week Sharon Harper shares hers. — Anne Kelly

 photo-eye Book Reviews
Julian Germain: Classroom Portraits

"As someone who has seldom faced a room full of students, I was seduced and a little startled by the (nearly) undivided attention Julian Germain elicited from pupils the world over in his series Classroom Portraits. This tenor of concentration seems to reflect his role not as stand-in for an absent instructor, but as stranger and interrupter of the norm. Their looks convey a tolerance and perhaps wary expectation, born not of hostility, but rather the students' collective ownership of these rooms and their protected reality within. All that these photographs echo of those standardized school portraits, full of orderly rows of classmates smiling on cue, is their deference to a collective rather than individual portrayal." — from Karen Jenkins' review of Classroom Portraits by Julian Germain

J Carrier: Elementary Calculus

"From the decentralized production and exchange of commodities to radical shifts in migration, globalization has transformed the world in numerous ways. What is often lost in these abstract discussions is the effect these changes have on people throughout the world. Shuttled and tossed about, lost amidst the shuffle, and driven by new economic opportunities, or the lack thereof, they are forced to survive and find a new place in environments that are often foreign to their own. In Israel, the seemingly endless Israeli-Palestinian conflict not only defines our perceptions of the region, but also masks our recognition of its own demographic and social transformation in the face of globalization. Shot in Jerusalem and Tel-Aviv, Elementary Calculus, J Carrier's new book explores the unseen and unspoken consequences of migration, exile and displacement in the region with intelligence and sophistication." — from Adam Bell's review of Elementary Calculus by J Carrier

Ernesto Bazan: <i>Al Campo</i> Ernesto Bazan: Al Campo—Signed

"The Cuban farmland opened up new windows of opportunity for my work. From 2001 to 2005 I spent long periods of time with them. I made new friends while wandering in this unique landscape that strongly reminded me of my Sicilian countryside. Our interactions allowed me the opportunity to experience and photograph intimate rituals such as working in the fields, sharing meals, smoking sugar-tasting cigars rolled before my eyes by Fidel's skillful hands, sipping sweet rum shots as we conversed about the sowing and the harvesting of crops and about our families and our existence." —Ernesto Bazan on BazanCuba
