Book of the Week: A Pick by Mike Slack
Yonder by Marnix Goossens


"What is 'nature'? Why do people decorate their habitats with fake landscapes, flowers, palm trees, mountaintops? It's easy to be amused by domestic kitsch, but this recent work by Dutch photographer Marnix Goossens sidesteps irony in favor of thoughtful close-up compositions of shabby indoor spaces that reveal and conceal pieces of an idealized outdoor world. While the pictures are ostensibly about a human 'longing for freedom, independency, and nature,' they actually evoke a weird mix of confinement/calm, hope/decay." —Mike Slack

Michelle Frankfurter's Destino

Photographer's Showcase artist Michelle Frankfurter has recently completed her multi-year project titled Destino documenting Central American migrants traveling through Mexico to cross into the United States. Riding on top of freight trains through the southern Mexican states, the trip becomes even more perilous as the migrants approach the notoriously violent border. Frankfurter's sensitive images are remarkable in their beauty and ability to capture both the danger of this journey and a sense of optimistic adventure.

Sarah Bradley spoke with Frankfurter about the completion of the project and the upcoming book for which she is seeking financial support.

Featured Artist: Jessica Todd Harper

"Before I had children, my working method largely involved waiting for inspiration to come. But with babies, sleep, showers and eating competed with the pictures in my head. One of the first images I made after becoming a mother was of me holding my new baby in the bathroom. I'm in a nightgown in my parents' house and I (unconsciously) copied a very old theme: the Virgin Mary and Baby Jesus. Light surrounds and illuminates us in a way that suggests a miraculous, ethereal, and very special moment. But the image takes place in the real world. The miracle is sharing space with fatigue and a cluttered bathroom.

The Home Stage is a body of work about childhood and having children. The title references the home-bound lifestyle of families with small children as well as the idea that home is the stage on which children first learn to live." —Jessica Todd Harper

Spasibo By Davide Monteleone

"The book form is perfectly suited for photojournalism. It offers a framework that allows for the marriage of words and photographs to create a document that explains complex situations. Davide Monteleone's new book, Spasibo (thank you in Russian), pushes the idea of a journalistic book form report into new territory with his lyrical images and context rich captions." — from Tom Leininger's review of Spasibo By Davide Monteleone

Henri Cartier-Bresson: Here and Now Edited by Clement Ch�roux

"Here and Now recounts [Henri Cartier-Bresson's] life in roughly chronological order, with heavy emphasis on his political ideas and activism, along with some of the very familiar photos we've come to cherish, and many less familiar. There are several previously unpublished color slides, and some great early paintings, as well as examples of later drawings, which are perhaps less inspiring. Following the fashion of recent photobooks, there is a wide mix of photographs, clippings, and scrapbook reproductions, all scattered in dynamic layout that keeps the eye entertained from page to page." — from Blake Andrews' review of Henri Cartier-Bresson: Here and Now edited by Clement Ch�roux
