This is Caruana's first publication where she shares the fascination for internet posted wedding dress photographs with us. Caruana went in dialogue with the women who were trying to sell their wedding dress online. A book full of intimate stories.
A book where Paul Kooiker shows an overview of all his Polaroids. He made a beautiful and touching edit in this large publication. Paul Kooiker is a master in combining the brutal, sexual and personal with each other.
This book is a very large project by Arcara and Santese. The book shows an edit of the thousands of Polaroids, letters, prints of photographic evidence, police documents, mugshots and family albums they found in Detroit. A breathtaking publication.
A book that shows a collection of newspaper photographs taken from someone who received a this Dutch newspaper in Iran. On all occasions where an image showed slightly nudity, a censor board has put a blue sticker bluntly over the image. Not seeing all of it resulted in hilarious new kind of images.
Scherer has already had for a long time a great eye for combining what's natural and what is not natural. For this new book she smashed the pots of the plants she grew herself and was amazed by the visible roots of the plants.
Touch shows the story of the 23 year old Stijn. He is blind and is photographed in his small apartment, the only place in the world where he's able to move freely. The photographs are made with hardly any light because Stijn doesn't need any. A touching portrait.
A subject that fascinated me also for a while already, photographs of smiling fireman in front of a burning house. An absurd and disturbing scene, until you know they are practicing in front of dummy houses. I'm very happy that Hayosh and Kuenzli finally made a beautiful book with their collection. Check out the centerfold!
A huge book printed on stiff boards like a children's book full of photographs of fully packed cars moving to Morocco. Mailaender portrays these cars as sculptures in this beautiful must have publication.
Every single one of these books where put together by hand and took about 3 hours to be finished. The photographic collage work of Gibson is very well expressed in this book full of stickers.
