Book of the Week: A Pick by Richard Renaldi
The 99 / The 9 by Katy Grannan


"In the early 2000s I spent a couple of years photographing in the Central Valley of California, a visually compelling region that has caught the eyes of photographers since the Depression. The subjects of Katy Grannan's new work The 99 / The 9 are the mostly poor inhabitants of Bakersfield, Fresno and Modesto, and the arid, urban streetscapes along Modesto's main drag. Though Grannan's portraits are strongly lit — with direct sun as the only source of light — the marked and weathered textures of her subjects' skin and clothing hint at reservoirs of darkness beyond the reach of the midday sun." —Richard Renaldi

 photo-eye Book Review


Disco Night Sept 11 By Peter van Agtmael

"[Peter] van Agtmael's Disco Night Sept 11 attempts to give us our gravity back and remove the abstractness from our understanding of current events by providing us with such a corpus of images as to essentially fill the gap of more brutal, more realistic media images over the last decade of war in Iraq and Afghanistan. This book is an accomplishment to stand in awe of and a work of art to inspire, though the inspiration may be fear, sadness, or even anger the discovery of this other, more honest dimension of the realities of war on soldiers, on the native citizens where war is waged, and on the families those soldiers return to." — from Christopher J. Johnson's review of Disco Night Sept 11 By Peter van Agtmael

America Latina By Luis Camnitzer, Olivier Compagnon & Alfonso Morales

"America Latina is a book of photographs from Latin America. That much is clear. It's divided into four sections; Territory, The City, Memory and Resisting and Memory and Identity. What's less clear is what Latin America actually is. In an essay at the front of the book, Oliver Compagnon tells us that it is a fictional creation that has little political or cultural meaning. It is a Eurocentric tag that ignores the indigenous peoples and the slaves who were traded from Africa. It's a hugely diverse region with ranges of health, wealth and education that in some ways make it a meaningless term." — from Colin Pantall's review of America Latina By Luis Camnitzer, Olivier Compagnon & Alfonso Morales
