Book of the Week: A Pick by Lara Shipley
Blackdrop Island By Klara Källström


"In Blackdrop Island, Klara Källström's photographs are the impressions of an outsider. Made mainly at night on trips to Tokyo, the bright flash illuminates, but does not explain. Swedish photographer Källström has fallen down a hole in the earth and has come out some place new. The mysteries she has brought back are small and innocent. Things seem odd. People are caught in unknowable acts. You can feel the distance between photographer and subject, the wander?s bewilderment at a foreign place." —Lara Shipley

 photo-eye Book Review


The Waiting Game By Txema Salvans

"As with those expectant protagonists in a spaghetti western, with their hot desolation and feigned control, for the players in Txema Salvans' The Waiting Game, absolutely nothing is happening, until it is. The prostitutes who work along the stretches of isolated road and highway interchanges along Spain's Mediterranean coast are depicted in the times in between; waiting for the car to pull over, the client to appear... Over the course of six years, Salvans hid in plain sight to create his thematic landscapes with their solitary embedded figures." — from Karen Jenkins' review of The Waiting Game by Txema Salvans

Early Black and White By Saul Leiter

"The two volumes of [Saul] Leiter's highly anticipated Early Black and White collects a largely unseen trove of remarkable black and white work from the late-40s and 50s. Divided into two volumes, Exterior and Interior, the books contain nudes, portraits, still-lifes and street photography brimming with elegant beauty and understated grace." — from Adam Bell's review of Early Black and White by Saul Leiter

Featured Artist: Heidi Kirkpatrick


"Throughout my career my work has explored the female figure, family narratives and contemporary issues of being a woman. My intent is to create works of art that are approachable in form and content and are interactive, yet fragile.

I use photographs to transform found objects into pieces of art. Fusing transparent figurative and family portraits with books, boxes and tins, I create a playful tension between imagery and object. My work breathes new life into these objects, yet they leave hints of the past in their lovingly worn appearances.

These works depart from the formality of a frame as they are arranged on a table top or a shelf, often placed side by side to reveal the complexities of the feminine allure while drawing on memories and visual formality." —Heidi Kirkpatrick
