Ori Gersht: History Repeating

"History Repeating is a thorough and conceptually exhaustive book that handsomely exhibits the major movements of Gersht's work. Gersht works in both moving and in still images, and the book represents both elegantly. The plates lead us through major steps in his body of work, and on either side are found lengthy interpretive essays." — from Winston Riley's review of History Repeating by Ori Gersht

Kim Thue: Dead Traffic

"The title of Kim Thue's new book Dead Traffic conjures up a variety of images. Indeed Thue's Dead Traffic, modestly wrapped in beige cloth with the title in all caps on the cover, is not a book to be browsed lightly despite the ease with which it resides in the hands. The photos are grainy and gritty and printed on a creamy yellow paper giving them a quality of warmth and age. Thue's photos confront a world where life is not easily lived, but Big Wharf in Freetown, Sierra Leone was like a home away from home for him." — from Melanie McWhorter's review of Dead Traffic by Kim Thue

Luigi Ghirri: Kodachrome

"A pivotal photobook of the late 20th century, Luigi Ghirri's Kodachrome was originally published in 1978 and is key to the history of European and color photography. While Ghirri's work has received renewed attention over the past several years, the witty, urbane and humanistic photographs of Ghirri have largely been under-appreciated outside his native Italy until now. Most recently, the photographer and artist Thomas Demand has championed his work and included Ghirri in his excellent exhibition La Carte d'apres Nature. Aperture's recent publication, It's Beautiful Here, Isn't It, was another welcome corrective. Long out-of-print, the new edition of Kodachrome will hopefully help restore and cement Ghirri's stature as a vital photographer of the 20th century." — from Adam Bell's review of Kodachrome by Luigi Ghirri

Amy Stein & Stacy Arezou Mehrfar: <i>Tall Poppy Syndrome</i> Amy Stein & Stacy Arezou Mehrfar: Tall Poppy Syndrome

"In 2010, American photographers Amy Stein (born 1970) and Stacy Arezou Mehrfar (born 1977) embarked on a monthlong road trip throughout New South Wales. They were interested in investigating the Australian social phenomenon of the "Tall Poppy Syndrome," in which successful people, or "tall poppies," are "cut down to size," resented or ridiculed because their talents or achievements distinguish them from their peers. Is the syndrome real? Can it be documented or observed? Stein and Mehrfar spent their days meeting and photographing everyday Australians-from schoolchildren in their plaid uniforms to young surfers playing at the beach to grandmothers meeting at their social clubs-all the while learning about the relationship between the group and the individual within Australian society. The resulting photographs offer a visual portrait of quintessential Australian life and society." —the publisher

Signed copies by both Amy Stein and Stacy Arezou Mehrfar will be available in 1-2 weeks. READ MORE

Pentti Sammallahti: <i>Archipelago</i> Pentti Sammallahti: Archipelago—Signed

Going for as much as $500 online, this out-of-print book is now available from photo-eye for $350, signed by the artist.


Born and based in Finland, Pentti Sammallahti has traveled across the northern reaches of Europe and Russia, across the peopled expanses of India and the empty deserts of Mongolia. His images are melodic and balanced, particularly this set from his homeland — stretches of quiet coastline, fallow fields of stone and snow, lone gulls amidst rocks and water, and endless dark waves of seawater.

photo-eye Gallery is showing Pentti Sammallahti's work in an exhibition up through February 9, 2013. READ MORE
