parr Published by Super Labo, Fläming by Hans-Christian Schink takes the viewer on an exploration of Germany's Fläming Heath. This rural landscape, nestled in relative close proximity to the country's capital of Berlin is an ideal subject for a photographer known for his investigation of geographic regions. This modest publication is simple in design, but striking in print and production quality. The photographs take the viewer through the streets of local towns and the surrounding farmland in an often-picturesque observance. Signed copies are now in stock and are available for order.


leiter Laboratory of Vision features a stunning collection of László Moholy-Nagy's archive, highlighting numerous mediums used by the artist that span through his prolific career. His often surreal and avant-garde imagery is associated with constructivism and is known for aesthetic techniques highlighting the movement of light with a strong emphasis on formal structure and pattern. Contained as a slipcase edition, Laboratory of Vision is a superb example of the artist's oeuvre and influence on the contemporary art world. Copies are now in stock and are available for order.


parr Berenice Abbott's entrancing imagery on scientific advancement is the focus of her new book published by Steidl titled Documenting Science. In this beautiful edition, basic scientific principles are explained through the artist's use of combining formal and practical elements together that provide a fundamental narrative, but also a visually stunning series of photographs. Used to illustrate textbooks at MIT, these images are an engaging example of artistic innovation and scientific practicality. Copies are now in stock and are available for order.


Karsh: Beyond the Camera reveals recorded anecdotes provided by Yousuf Karsh about the famous subjects he notoriously photographed. The portrait photographer's previously recorded insights rarely allowed the viewer a glimpse of what the artist himself thought of his time spent making some of his most iconic imagery. Here, Karsh tells of his personal interactions and thoughts of those he engaged with psychologically to capture some of the most dynamic portraits taken in the last century. Copies are now in stock and are available for order.

"Bhopal: Second Disaster with photographs by Alex Masi, is the second book resulting from the annual FotoEvidence Book Award. The grant supports and encourages documentary photographers highlighting human rights violations and social injustice, ultimately publishing their project. The second publication is designed and sequenced much as the first, Javier Arcenillas' Sicarios: Latin American Assassins, with black paper-wrapped cover printed with one of the artist's images on front and back cover, opening essay, plates, interview with the artist and plate listing. Aside from branding of the book and the work fitting in with the mission of the grant, the images are quite different. Masi uses color as his medium and he captures a region half-a-world away from Arcenillas' subject, but that also suffers from the aftereffects of a manmade tragedy." — from Melanie McWhorter's post on photo-eye Blog.

A friend recently described Magnum photographer Antoine D'Agata as the William T. Vollman of photography. While many documentary artists explore the seamier sides of life, these two both go to extremes of danger and morality for the sake of their art.

Last month saw exuberant bidding for the books by D'Agata (Agonie (SIGNED) & Mala Noche), so we are thrilled beyond belief to offer five Polaroids taken in sex clubs in the Shinjuku section of Tokyo. The spontaneity of the Polaroid is the perfect medium for D'Agata's fugitive aesthetic!

Also up this week: a fantastic association copy of Yasuhiro Ishimoto's seminal 1958 book Someday, Somewhere ; Martin Munkacsi's sumptuous Nudes; Sergio Larrain's Valparaiso, a veritable trove of Czech rarities & MUCH MORE!! Check out Eric's presentation below where he discusses a few of this week's offerings.
