Slowlight Published by the Etherton Gallery, Slowlight by Kate Breakey offers a previously unseen selection of landscapes taken over the artist's 30-year career. Primarily known for her portraits of birds and flowers, Breakey's landscapes offer a different perspective on her view of the surrounding world. The photographs are often subtle, quiet depictions of ephemeral moments and are beautifully printed in this thoughtfully designed edition. Copies are arriving soon and are available for preorder.

Thomas Demand '"The Altogether is inspired by manufacturing and the manual workers who make and produce, craftsman who are skilled and work with their hands," says Chris Coekin of his latest journey through English working class culture.

Part of that craftsmanship is found in the book itself. Every detail is thought out and included so it connects into a narrative whole. First off, the book comes with a foil-blocked embossed cover of a man pulling on a rope. It's chalk white against coal black cloth, a touch-and-feel introduction to a book in which tactile, visual and auditory combine to perfect effect." — from Colin Pantall's review of The Altogether on photo-eye Magazine. Signed copies are arriving soon and are available for preorder.

The Stage by Sen Chao-Liang is a striking view of the mobile performing stages used by cabarets, song and dance ensembles and recreational bands traveling around Taiwan. Taken at night, these photographs display the stages' brightly illuminated presence on beachfronts, carnival settings and side streets. Chao-Liang's portraits offer an engaging look at both an oddity of popular culture and display of creative design. Copies are arriving soon and are available for preorder.

Taking the viewer through a revealing journey of what happens to the body after death, photographer Patrik Budenz has created a book showcasing what many of us choose to ignore. In Post Mortem, Budenz weaves together photographs of bodies traveling through cold rooms, crematoriums, autopsy rooms and cemeteries, creating an eye-opening portrait of the life of a body after death, dispelling many of our notions of what it means to die. Copies are arriving soon and are available for preorder.

"Dewi Lewis’ new publication Burke + Norfolk may be the best book I have seen come out this year. When taking into account content, design, reproduction quality and sequencing, this monograph is an exceptional over-sized object. Loosely rephotographic in nature, this book is Simon Norfolk’s revisitation of the work of little known 19th century Irish photographer John Burke. Burke was the first photographer to make images in Afghanistan while accompanying British forces during the years of 1878-1880. The result of Burke’s travels produced several photographic albums the photographer sold following the British invasion. Carrying a large wooden view camera and using a wet-collodion process, the shear task Burke undertook in the conflict-ridden country is worthy of great intrigue. But process aside, Burke’s stunning photographs are richly printed and the details from his large negatives are exquisite." — from Antone Dolezal's post on photo-eye Blog. Signed copies are back-in-stock and available for order.

'Nealy Blau's Elsewhere represents the wonderful play of possibility between the natural and the artificial. The full-color, analog photographs document diorama in natural history museums, masking through framing and focus the constructed nature of their subject matter. However, the images avoid becoming mere traps of illusion. Instead, they propel the viewer into the exciting and open spaces created by the gaps and gradients existing between the concepts of real and imagined.' — from Nicholas Chiarella's review of Elsewhere on photo-eye Magazine. Signed copies are back-in-stock and are available for order

From Above by Paule Saviano is an intimate series of portraits taken of survivors of the atomic bombs dropped on Japan, as well as the firebombings of Tokyo and Dresden in 1945. Featuring commentary from Saviano's subjects, this book is beautiful in both design and its celebration of perseverance.

Lynda Frese's Pacha Mama: earth realm is a collection of hybrid landscapes inspired by religious iconography from the Italian Renaissance and indigenous cultures of South America. Including texts, poems and Sanskrit prayer, this collection follows a narrative based on the South American Earth Goddess Pachamama.

Fourteen People by Robert Fleischanderl examines the lives of fourteen Jewish refugees. Containing stunning portraits and interior shots, this book asks the question, When does a person cease to be a refugee? Here the viewer is given a thoughtful portrayal of humanity and the personal relationship to history and identity.
