NEW ARRIVALS +  02.22.14 Vol 10.8

New Arrivals

A mysterious orb of light appears on a remote road in the Ozark hills. Artists Lara Shipley and Antone Dolezal have spent the last three years photographing the strange phenomenon and the vibrant myth surrounding it for Spook Light Chronicles Vol. 1, the first of three books in a series exploring the spook light. The book contains exquisite portraits of members of the community, spook light and cultural ephemera as well as a charming vintage postcard from the Ozarks.

Printed in an edition of 250 copies and containing 42 loose-leaf plates, Billboard Sochi Singers is to be assembled into a large 7x8½' billboard of Rob Hornstra’s portraits from his Sochi Singers series. After admiring the photograph, flip each plate over and another image emerges. Billboard Sochi Singers is part of a larger project by Russian photographer Rob Hornstra and writer Arnold Van Bruggen, who have spent the last seven years documenting the Caucasus region, giving historical and social context to the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.

Responding to the sudden death of her lover and the father of her son, Anne de Gelas immersed herself in a project she began more than a decade earlier. L'amoureuse is a visual diary of her journey through loss, grief and redemption. Colin Pantall selected L'amoureuse as one of his Best Books of 2013. Pantall writes, "The most moving book of the year goes to Anne de Gelas who remembers her husband through an explanation of personal sorrow and loss (and how to overcome it)."

Arriving Soon

We are excited to announce that after several years of failed attempts to get copies to the US, we are finally expecting to receive copies of Box — Pass It On. Due to the limited availability and difficulty of importing this book, we highly recommend back ordering your copy immediately. Sarah Bradley reviewed this wonderful limited edition book for photo-eye Blog. She wrote, "The book of photographs opens with text from photographer and editor Chen Jiaojiao detailing the personal discovery of long-unseen family images, a box that contained a secret history. So much is contained within this box, and its presentation allows for an experience of personal discovery, making the reading of it all the more profound. It is a beautiful document, and I will surely pass on. It is something to be shared."

Paraiso by Antoine d’Agata is a dark and perilous journey through Valparaiso, Chile, during which the photographer comes face to face with his past drug use from his years spent in Cambodia. The book’s presentation pays homage to Sergio Larrain's Valparaiso though the photographs themselves are markedly different. Paraiso provides an engaging, personal look at the people d'Agata encounters during his stay there and permeates a sense of déjà vu from his previous work, ICE.

Uelsmann Untitled: A Retrospective provides an in-depth look at more than fifty years worth of work by the masterful photomontage artist Jerry Uelsmann. This retrospective is the largest ever produced on Uelsmann’s innovative and imaginative work – more than 200 photographs comprise Uelsmann Untitled.

Due in March, Publish Your Photography Book by Darius Himes and Mary Virginia Swanson is updated in this revised edition. The book features invaluable information and resources for photographers who wish to publish their own photography books. Mary Anne Redding writes, "Himes & Swanson take their own advice and the recommendations of other experts in the business. Publish Your Photography Book is as beautiful as it is informative. Kudos to designers David Chickey and Masumi Shibata for producing a book about publishing that feels good to hold in your hands and turn the pages. It's as easy to start at the back of the book with the useful Resources, Appendices, and Worksheets, as it is to begin at the beginning. This is a good book."

Best wishes,
