cave drawings "Lex Thompson's Cave Drawings contains little text aside from the brief 67-word artist statement and a signature page in the rear that notes the edition of 100 copies. The simple reproduction of a line drawing illustrates the cover and following the title page, the first image sets the mood for our journey through the inside of the Earth. We are in a rock-lined lobby where the elevator (arrow pointing up) has just deposited us 750 ft below the surface. Thompson shows one set of elevators, numbers 3 and 4, blocked by a row of chairs and tables as we assume 1 and 2 are opposite and completely functioning, hauling the many tourists back to the surface of the planet." — from Melanie McWhorter's post on photo-eye Blog. Signed copies are now in stock and are available for order.

darkroom "[In Darkroom] there is a sense that Bartos sees his subject as ... a relic to be photographed with a certain level of indifference. There is little emotional connection. Instead, Bartos has approached his subject similar to how an archeologist would photograph the evidence of a city's ruin, displaying the aging of time through dismantled enlargers and a discontinued dry-press. Bartos takes us into the artist's darkroom to gaze not only at their relics, but also to give us a small insight into their solitude. The only information given about each space is the location and how many years the darkroom has been in operation. And while no direct information is given about whose space we are looking in on, hints such as book dummies, oddly formatted negative carriers and a few working prints tacked to the wall might give a few of us some clues." — from Antone Dolezal's post on photo-eye Blog. Signed copies are now in stock and are available for order.

Night Birds features French photographer Patrick Guedj’s surreal urban nightscapes with unique commentary drawn directly on the images by graffiti artist Kid Acne. The book explores the visual and conceptual similarities both artists strive to display within their work, while also making a separate comment on the importance of night in how each individual artist operates. Copies are now in stock and are available for order.

Exit 46: In the Studio is now available for order! The latest issue archives the fading tradition of documenting life within the frame of the photographer’s studio. From capturing family portraits to images for magazine spreads, the work here gives context to the importance of studio portraiture and still life photography within the history of the medium and explores the evolution of the photographer’s studio.

We hope you enjoy this week's selection of New Arrivals!
