Daniel Meadows Recently published by Photoworks, Daniel Meadows: Edited Photographs from the 70s and 80s is an extensive look into the early career of this influential British photographer. While displaying a central focus on Meadows' photographic endeavors, the book also tells a comprehensive history of young British photography in the 70s and 80s, including musings on Martin Parr, Bill Jay, Paul Graham and many others. Meadows travelled across the country to photograph English culture in his converted double-decker bus, displaying a taste for adventure and apparent ambition that is an inspiring tale of artistic pursuit. Accompanied with Meadows' five best-known projects and recently discovered unpublished works, this book is an enthralling look into the historical importance of one British photographer. Copies are now in stock and available for order.

Things Here and Things Still to Come Things Here and Things Still to Come by Jose Pedro Cortes is an intimate portrait of four young American Jewish women living in Tel Aviv. The women in this book left the United States at the age of 18 to serve in the Israeli military, and now live in the Middle Eastern city after their two years of required service. For nine months, Cortes photographed and created a beautiful portrait of Tel Aviv with these four women as his central subject. The women are often photographed nude or semi-nude within the private settings of their own homes. Weaved throughout this series are images of alleys, streets and cityscapes adding to the dramatic expression of the photographer's story. Signed copies are now in stock and available for order.

Watch the Weather Change Watch the Weather Change by Marco Van Duyvendijk is a striking mix of varying photographic approaches that brings together a poetic series of images. Beginning with lyrics from the song Disposition by the influential rock band Tool, Duyvendijk sets the stage for a quiet and personal jaunt through the streets of Hong Kong and the countryside of Taiwan and the Netherlands. Still lifes, landscapes and portraits mix seamlessly with written letters and personal notes, creating a series that blurs the lines between documentary photography and storytelling. Signed copies are arriving soon and are available for preorder.

Oculus by Ken Schles is a thoughtful exploration into the connection between images, perception and memory. Schles' haunting and eloquent photographs reflect upon his own personal philosophy that as humans we render the world through images, creating symbols and signs that describe the world we live, but not necessarily actualizing our experience. To Schles, "Seeing is not knowing." Accompanied with the authors' compelling prose, the photographs in this book look deeply at the metaphors humans make through imagery and understanding. Signed copies are arriving soon and are available for preorder.

A Head With Wings by Anouk Kruithof is a brilliantly designed object that pushes the boundaries of traditional photobook publishing. Published by Alec Soth's Little Brown Mushroom, this book offers a mixture of text, collage and photography that is closer in resemblance to a mixed-media installation. Flipping through the book, one occasionally finds individual folded images tucked within the pages along with sparse text, forcing the viewer into a unique engagement with Kruithof's underlying story. Recurring images of a man lost in his own thoughts and displaying expressive physical gestures leaves the viewer with a sense that they too are caught in the artist's vivid and hallucinatory world. Copies are arriving soon and are available for preorder.

Three new titles are available from Tosei-Sha. First, Sunshine Volition by Aki Tanaka is a delicate series of the study of sunlight. Often looking upward through the trees and foliage, Tanaka brings her aesthetic of using soft focus and vivid color to reflect upon an evocative sense of the subconscious. Second, Uraniwa by Haru Kimura is a journey through the microcosm of a backyard garden. These images — shot in both black-and-white and color — focus on the intricacies of insects and reptiles, while also showcasing the human imprint within such an environment. Third, Gifted by Yumi Himesaki offers a series of portraits of adults with mental disabilities. This intimate project captures each individual in their own unique environment, whether at work, home or a place of recreation the photographs here are thoughtful and heart-warming. Copies of all three Tosei-Sha titles are arriving soon and are available for preorder.
