Book of the Week: A Pick by Paula McCartney
I'm Not Tailgating, I'm Drafting by Jan Kempenaers


"I picked up I'm Not Tailgating, I'm Drafting, by Jan Kempenaers at the New York art book fair last fall and it has been sitting on top of my book shelf ever since. I was drawn to the book on the Roma table for the color print of a giant scarred tree trunk included with the book. The 16-fold binding, the saddle stitched archive of images, the contrast of the color images on the front side of the book with the black and white images on the back, all make for a really unique structure that doesn?t feel gimmicky. But what I keep opening the book up to experience is the image of the flowering tree, exploding in a two page spread with a sunburst of yellow blooms, each time warming me up through this long Minnesota winter." —Paula McCartney

 Interview with the Artist
"New from Phaidon are two publications by Stephen Shore. Available now, A New York Minute is the first digital book from both the photographer and publisher. While referencing the traditional photobook, Shore engaged the unique multimedia format of the iBook by creating 16 moving images contained in a static frame, catching fragments of the nonstop bustle of New York or details easily lost in the relentless movement of the city.

Due this Spring, From Galilee to the Negev is Shore's contribution a commissioned project organized by Frederic Brenner that brought an impressive roster of photographers to Israel and the West Bank to visit, explore and ultimately make a photobook." —Sarah Bradley

Melanie McWhorter interviewed Stephen Shore about the two new publications for photo-eye Blog. Read the interview here.

Bücher Books by Boris Mikhailov

"Boris Mikhailov's Bücher Books (like most text in the book, the German precedes the English) is a ponderous tome of 334 pages that reproduces two of his artists books, Structures of madness, or why shepherds living in the mountains often go crazy and Photomania in Crimea. Published by the Sprengel Museum Hannover, Bücher Books itself is a high quality publication. The images are crisp and clear; the paper feels weighty without being thick. The essays are printed in a different, uncoated light gray stock that is presumably easier to read. It?s a well done object, but the contents are likely to be too opaque for people unfamiliar with the politics and culture of mid to late 20th century Ukraine." — from David Ondrik's review of Bücher Books by Boris Mikhailov

Belonging by Munem Wasif

"After first paging through Belonging I, as a reviewer, was overcome with a deep sense of intimidation. Rarely do we find ourselves in the presence of something that exudes such excellence and love. Love? Yes, absolutely love; these photographs thrust one into a place, a time, a community in a way in which I am at a loss for words to draw comparison. The tenacious realness of these images, made somehow surreal through black and white, is more akin to the vivid nature of dreams. Once you have engaged with Belonging and walked away it seems less like a collection of photographs and more like a memory that eludes full recollection, or as if you fell asleep in the passenger seat of a car as it passed through a foreign city, waking every so often, stealing an image, a scene here and there and then submerging them in the elusive waters of dreaming." — from Christopher J. Johnson's review of Belonging by Munem Wasif
