NEW ARRIVALS +  11.03.12 Vol 9.44

parr Alec Soth and Brad Zellar's LBM Dispatch #2: Upstate takes us through the serene landscapes of the Hudson Valley and the Catskill Mountains to the Universities in Syracuse and Ithaca. This ongoing newsprint publication is the pair's journalistic documentation of everyday community life, hardships and triumphs in America. Alongside Soth's black-and-white photographs are Zellar's literary musings that take a cue from America's great storytelling traditions, helping to portray America as a place of specific identity, but also a place of universal problems and heritage. Copies are now in stock and are available for order.

leiter Human Zoos is a compelling while often disturbing survey of Western man's exploitation of non-Western cultures through the act of 'humane exhibiting.' Offering detailed accounts and visual documentations of Western exploiters including Buffalo Bill and P.T. Barnum, this book showcases the West's fascination and craving for traveling freak shows and circuses that housed exhibitions of 'native savages' and cultural oddities that border between the curious and the macabre. Copies are now in stock and are available for order.

parr History Repeating by Ori Gersht is a haunting survey of the photographer’s life work. The landscapes in this book are at first picturesque, hinting at an uneasiness that is not readily pinned down. From mass murder in the Ukraine to war-torn Sarajevo, these places are often the scenes where violent acts have taken place, the images transcending from the beautiful ideal of nature to the habitual horror humans inflict upon each other. Copies are now in stock and are available for order.

"Joe's Junk Yard is more than a photographic recollection of a family business. Lisa Kereszi presents a rich portrait of her heritage along with a narrative about the shifting economics of car culture. There are a number of themes in this book. Those of family and place become clear and overarching. They are expressed through Kereszi's lens and the scrapbooks of her grandfather Joe.

In the essay Scrap with Joe, Kereszi takes us through her family history and that of the junkyard founded by Joe Kereszi Sr. in the blue-collar suburbs of Philadelphia. Family photographs and pages from the scrapbooks paint a fuller picture of the man and family. Her writing is focused and unsentimental, like the pictures. Kereszi also connects her family to the path Walker Evans traveled through Pennsylvania. She is firmly rooted in this place and the tradition of American photography as practiced by Evans and those after him." – from Tom Leininger's review on photo-eye Blog. Copies are now in stock and are available for order.

"The third issue of AMC2 Journal from the Archive of Modern Conflict is titled Preserves from the AMC Garden, the cover featuring the five colored Olympic rings scattered in an illustration of a woman canning jam. The forty-page pamphlet is reportedly a guide for London visitors during the 2012 Olympics and greets the reader with a helpful introduction after some advertisements for canning equipment and a disconcertingly unremarked-upon photograph of a nude woman on top of a reclining cow. The introduction frames present day London in the context of the 2011 riots and unstable economic conditions, but assures the reader that it will guide visitors to an 'enjoyable and rewarding' stay in London. Breakfast and frying instructions follow, as do recipes for dishes involving sheep hearts, brains and heads. Things get more confusing from there on." — from Sarah Bradley's review on photo-eye Blog. Copies are arriving soon and are available for order.
