 Art Photo Index
Art Photo Index (API) is a visual database of nearly 3,000 art and documentary photographers from around the world. API launched last week and the response has been fantastic!

"API is a new format for viewing and researching for a new generation of photographers, as well as some more familiar names. As the extensive collection of images are all keyworded, it becomes a new index of emerging artists at the cutting edge of art photography." —Martin Parr, photographer, photobook collector/historian

Melissa Cantanese: Dive Dark Dream Slow

"Dive Dark Dream Slow was among the most frequently selected books on the list, and is a rather brilliant example of the rise of the snapshot in contemporary photographic practice, exhibition and study. The images in the book were culled from the massive vernacular photography collection of Peter Cohen, who has become one of the foremost collectors of the form. Cohen's collection has recently been made the subject of exhibitions and publications, and part of his collection was also recently donated to New York's Museum of Modern Art. In Dive Dark Dream Slow, Cohen's collection has been put in the hands of photographer and bookseller Melissa Cantanese. The resulting book captures a feeling that I imagine must be quite similar to wandering through such a vast photographic archive. One seems to enter a meditative state where the faces and scenes before you begin to fill a waking dream." — from Sarah Bradley's review of Dive Dark Dream Slow by Melissa Cantanese

Thomas Barrow: Cancellations

"Cancellations is a collection of photographs made by Thomas F. Barrow from 1973 to 1981 with an essay by Geoffrey Batchen. The series began shortly after Barrow relocated to Albuquerque, New Mexico from Rochester, New York, where he was Assistant Director and Editor of Publications at the George Eastman House. This connection is useful for understanding Cancellations, as in 1975 the Eastman House hosted two exhibitions that manifest the spirit of Barrow's work: New Topographics (which nearly every photographer knows about) and Extended Document (which not nearly enough photographers know about)." — from David Ondrik's review of Cancellations by Thomas Barrow

Human Zoos

"Human Zoos is an inexhaustible resource of period photographs and promotional materiel. The book is the companion piece to the Musee du Quai Branly's exhibit 'Exhibitions: The Invention of the Savage' that was held between November 2011 and June 2012 in Paris, France. The focus of the exhibit was America's and Western Europe's view on the 'savage' throughout the 19th century and the dawn of the 20th. It is sad, fascinating, and, like a textbook, endless. The historical information was exhaustively researched and is provided in a well-written narrative by Lilian Thurman with informative sidebars added by the show's curators throughout. The book is enriched not only with photographs, but period ephemera as well, including: tour guides, postcards, advertisements, paintings and newsprint." — from Christopher Johnson's review of Human Zoos edited by Pascal Blanchard, Gilles Boëtsch and Nanette Jacomijn Snoep

Anthony Hernandez: <i>Rodeo Drive, 1984</i> Anthony Hernandez: Rodeo Drive, 1984
"Rodeo Drive, 1984 is a series of 41 images of shoppers on Beverly Hills' infamous shopping highway. The subjects appear caught unaware, glancing up as they walk, or daydreaming as they wait to be served in its commercial landscape of shops and restaurants. Anthony Hernandez poses as a dispassionate observer, recording the big hair, wide shoulders and cinched waists of the 1980's in sunlit photographs." —the publisher READ MORE
