You and I Twin Palms long awaited publication You & I by Ryan McGinley is a surreal journey through romantic youthful summers of indulgence and adventure. McGinley spent 6 consecutive summers embarking on road trips to remote locations, filling up several vans with young models. By creating an environment of freedom, McGinley's models display an openness that is close in resemblance to the 1960s counter culture. The spontaneous actions of the photographer's models, mixed with the remote locations scouted out by McGinley allows for imagery that contains a sense of joyful abandon. Here we see a generation of youth enjoying a fantasy life and at times hedonistic impulses. Copies are now in stock and available for order. Read Jonathan Blaustein's review of You & I on A Photo Editor.

Sasha Sasha by Claudine Doury is an intimate portrait of one young woman's coming of age. Using a soft light and color palate, Doury shows her daughter, Sasha's, unique transformation, along with her confidence and vulnerabilities in both a literal and symbolic fashion. The photographs are touching, as well as revealing, becoming an important witness to Sasha's evolution. Signed copies are now in stock and available for order. Read Colin Pantall's review of Sasha on photo-eye Magazine.

Ask The Cat Ask the Cat by Satoru Toma is an investigation of the outskirts of the Belgium city of Brussels. Wandering a meandering path like a stray cat, Satoru walked the edges of the city, discovering industrial sites, abandoned buildings and countryside. Operating as a primitive wanderer, the photographer compiled a series of compelling and often odd images over the course of nine months that portray a curious sense of exploration. Presented here in this beautifully designed book, Ask the Cat takes the viewer on a long journey through the woods, open fields and underprivileged districts of this historic city. Copies are now in stock and available for order. Read Tom Leninger's review of Ask the Cat on photo-eye Magazine.

Al Campo by Ernesto Bazan is a new publication of visually engaging color photographs depicting Cuban farmland. Reminding the photographer of his Sicilian homeland, the countryside of Cuba evoked a sense of romanticism in Bazan that inspired him to make this series of honest and enriching photographs. In many ways, this is a book documenting tradition, the tradition of sowing the field, raising and slaughtering livestock and sharing meals, weaving together a telling description of family and community. The photographs here are about the simple lives of a culturally rich people. Copies of this stunning limited edition are now in stock and available for order.

Sans Titre by Stephanie Solinas looks deep into the art of identification, specifically identification for the sake of government. Through reconstructing the face and identity of Alphonse Bertillion — the biometrics researcher who created a criminal identification system based on physical measurements — Solinas makes a striking commentary on government distinction between individual and society. Here we witness the importance of the government's ability to identify its own citizens for criminal inquiry and the protection of the state. By reconstructing the face of Bertillion through folded and glued paper and constructing photographs based on the researcher’ biography, Solinas has demonstrated a complex and thoughtful commentary in a world often dictated by a police state. Copies are arriving soon and are available for preorder.

Mill River by Joseph Gerhard displays a contemplative look at a one-mile stretch of the river from the Elie Whitney Dam to the Wilbur Cross High School, in New Haven Connecticut. This manmade artifact appears as a natural entity within the surrounding landscape. Gerhard’s striking black-and-white images are both meditative and informative of how man and environment coexist, both positively and negatively. Mill River is an ode to man's ability to coexist and in some respects protect the natural environment.
