NEW ARRIVALS +  10.31.10 Vol 7.44

Killed Happy Halloween everyone! Appropriately enough we lead off this week's newsletter with a book that explores the rejection and defacement of imagery by the head of the Farm Security Administration's photography division.

Just arrived at our warehouse, copies of Killed by William E. Jones, published by PPP Editions. Jones mined modern photojournalism's veritable garden of eden, the FSA archives, and came out with the photographs in Killed — images rejected by the FSA Information Division founder and chief Roy Stryker. When Stryker chose to exercise his editorial will, he did so by punching a hole through the negative, sometimes with an almost apologetic tone, often with a strange ferocity and laissez-faire censorship. These photographs were initially presented by Jones as a film work titled Punctured. An avid critic and veracious essayist, Jones' accompanying texts are an insightful interpretation of the work included, and on the nature and ethics of the photographic archive. Killed presents 157 images organized by photographer, and includes images from the FSA which depict homosexuality — the impetus for Jones' original interest in the FSA collection. Copies now in stock.

Der Baum Arriving soon, signed copies of Der Baum from extraordinary Dutch photographer and independent publisher Erik van der Weijde. Der Baum presents forty-four photographs of trees taken by Van der Weijde over the last several years at diverse locations in Europe and Brazil. Titled for their locations, some of the images become filled with significance, Hitler's elementary school or scenes of famous crimes, while others, "School" or "Road" are anonymous and descriptive. Like Van der Weijde's previous publications, Der Baum is a stunning combination of traditional D.I.Y publishing, photographic typology and a nuanced relationship to the materiality of printed matter. Signed copies of this stunning publication are arriving soon and can now be preordered.

Also of Note, two new publications from Daido Moriyama’s "Record" series, a personal photographic magazine originally conceived by Moriyama in 1972. The images in Record No. 13 were taken with a Polaroid Land Camera Model 180 using 4x5 Fujifilm Instant B/W film – allowing for a departure from the grainy point-and-shoot quality normally associated with Moriyama’s photographs. The layout of Record No. 13 is slightly different as well. While the images in Record usually appear full bleed and with one photo per layout, Record No. 13 offers a variety of layouts and some images are presented in a grid that is uncommon for this magazine series.

Record No. 14 is the latest installment from Moriyama’s ongoing magazine series and the first dedicated to full color digital photographs. The images were taken around the surroundings of Asahikawa, Hokkaido and while they are a departure from the photographs shown in previous issues, Record No. 14 provides a glimpse of the full scope of this iconic photographer’s vision.
