About Love About Love by Gay Block is a stunning survey of the artist's extensive photographic career. Spanning more than 30 years, the photographs in this book are presented chronologically with a book design that replicates the intimacy of a family album. Block began to photograph her affluent Jewish family and community in the early 1970s as a means to connect with an upbringing she felt conflicted with. For Block, photography was a means to learn about family love and in this over-sized volume her connection to her subjects displays a level of intimacy that is both telling and deeply personal. Copies are now in stock and available for order.

Wendover Wendover: The Half-Life of History by Mark Klett is a visually stunning account of the Wendover Army Air Base (the site housing the bomber which dropped "Little Boy" over Hiroshima). Wendover now exists as a relic of past military conflicts, showing the strong appearance of neglect and abandonment. The images in this book are a visual departure for Klett who is known for focusing on the photographic intersection of the cultural landscape and the passage of time. Here the viewer is given a portrait of the army base in both color and black-and-white. The images offer a haunting account of both America's past and the potential for its violent future. Automatic casings and other remnants are exquisitely presented through Klett's signature use of Type 55 film along with stunning photographs of the greater landscape. We have a few advanced copies available for order. More copies will be arriving in 2-4 weeks.

Mom & Dad Mom & Dad by photographer Terry Richardson is a telling journey into the famous artist's family life. Separated into two volumes (Mom & Dad) this beautifully constructed object gives insight into Richardson's personal upbringing and his relationship with his parents. Following both parents separately, the viewer is presented with two drastically different perspectives. Richardson's ailing father is often shown in subtle scenes that appear as both an intimate portrait of a man at the end of his life as well as an insightful dialogue between father and son. In contrast, Richardson's mother appears as a fashionably dressed (sometimes undressed) character that closely resembles her son's public persona. Presented in a slipcase and limited to an edition of 1000 copies, this intriguing publication is in stock and available for order.

Sochi Singers by Rob Hornsta is a fascinating look into the nightlife of the Russian resort city Sochi. This book explores both the city's transformation into a modern tourist destination, as well as its long-standing tradition of attracting Russian musicians to sing in every restaurant and bar. The photographs focus heavily on these singers and musicians, while also displaying scenes of crowded beaches, flashing neon lights and mesmerizing cityscapes. Signed copies are now in stock and available for order.

Also by Rob Hornstra, Safety First is a book composed entirely of negatives damaged by X-ray scanners in the Chechen capitol Grozny. It's a city determined to stop terrorist attacks, but without a clear idea of how to achieve this goal. To help confront this threat, X-ray scanners have been placed not only in government buildings, but also in common public spaces. Shops, gyms and restaurants are not off limits to these heightened security precautions. Designed to replicate a photographer's contact sheet, this book takes a close look into the lengths one country will go to feel secure. Signed copies are now in stock and available for order.

I Heart Transylvania by Jason Nocito is a personal story of life and love shot over a four-year period in Vancouver, B.C. This tightly edited selection of photographs intimately depicts an everyday life while also displaying a gritty reality. Designed by Michael Schmelling and published by Dashwood Books, I Heart Transylvania is a peculiar tale of spousal dynamics. Copies are arriving soon and are available for preorder.

Also by Dashwood Books, Jack Webb Suspects His Parents by Jack Webb. The images here were taken after Webb placed several ads seeking 'genuine couples' that would allow him to photograph their sexual exploits. Graphic in nature, the photographs in this book depict non-idealized sexual encounters that while raw in nature, also display an intimacy captured by the photographer. Copies are arriving soon and are available for preorder.
