Book of the Week: A Pick by Jim Stone
We Shall by Paul D'Amato


"Produced as an exhibition catalog, Paul D'Amato's We Shall follows his 2006 book, Barrio. Both deserve more attention. D'Amato is a photographer's photographer. I study D'Amato's work to inspire my own. As a teacher, I show his photographs to students every semester (and have for twenty years) as examples of nearly everything a photographer should pay attention to. Feel his deep regard for and incisive understanding of his subjects, look at the brilliant way he structures each image and how he uses light and color, imagine yourself as completely immersed in the lives of others, devoting years to a neighborhood. I've seen many photobooks over the years in which an inventive style and high production values create a semblance of substance. This is a book with more classic sensibilities; the vessel does not intrude on its contents. It is worthy of repeated — careful — readings." —Jim Stone

Featured Artist: David Pace

"I have been photographing in the small West African country of Burkina Faso since 2007. I spend at least two months there every year living in Bereba, a rural village with no electricity or running water. I am creating a portrait of Bereba by documenting all aspects of daily life in the village." —David Pace

 photo-eye Book Review


Water by Edward Burtynsky

"Edward Burtynsky has never been one to dabble in small gestures. Whether the subject is oil, China, or mining, his focus is on large-scale processes. And his technical practices go hand in hand. He uses large format equipment to produce wall-size prints. His books are dense. In the words of Geoff Dyer, Burtynsky 'is as close to stadium rock as a landscape photographer is likely to get.' His recent book Water is no exception." — from Blake Andrews' review of Water by Edward Burtynsky

Anders Petersen

"Writing of Anders Petersen's devotion to photography's analogue mode, in film cameras and silvery papers, essayist Hasse Persson likens his underground darkroom to a 'gateway to heaven.' And Petersen's giant new retrospective catalog from Max Ström surely showcases gorgeous tonal contrasts and expressive finesse in black and white, from a master of the old school. Yet it's also a funny analogy, in that a transcendence of this world seems so unlikely for a photographer so thoroughly rooted on earth, entwined in its mundane messiness and unexpected elegance." — from Karen Jenkins' review of Anders Petersen
