still standing In the Fields of Gold by Miquel Llonch takes the viewer to the outskirts of the photographer's hometown of Terrassa, Spain. Evoking ephemeral ambience, Llonch has created a mysterious space of solitude and serenity. The photographs are taken at dusk, giving a glimpse of the near by city, but focus on the quiet backdrop that surrounds it and those who wander to these outskirts for a small bit of peace. Beautifully printed and at times haunting, In the Fields of Gold continues Poursuite Editions' reputation as an exquisite publisher of intriguing photography. Copies are now in stock and available for order.

Time and Space Time and Space on the Lower East Side by Brian Rose and Ed Fausty is a stunning collaboration featuring photographs taken in the Lower East Side of Manhattan. This project began in 1980 depicting crumbling buildings and the expressive resilience of the people who lived among them. The photographs sat in Rose's archive unseen for nearly three decades. In 2010 Rose came back to the Lower East Side to photograph the old neighborhoods with fresh eyes and a new perspective. Here the viewer is shown a series that looks both backward and forward and expresses a continuation of rebirth. Copies are in stock and available for order.

"Photographed in Kyrgyzstan, a remote area in the former Soviet Union, Thatcher Hullerman Cook's newest book Black Apple presents an artful view of the harsh life of the region's inhabitants and surrounding sparse landscape. The introduction by Nicholas Fox Weber describes Cook's images as a set in Tolstoy's War and Peace and, in the afterword, Associate Professor of Russian at Bowdoin College, Raymond Miller pulls quotations from Dostoevsky's The Brothers Karamazov and Crime and Punishment to relate the photographs to the unchanged life of the 21st century residents of Kyrgyzstan. Cook himself was influenced by Russian literature as he documented the harsh climate, the economic struggles and the hardships that each inhabitant faces every day. Through the images and accompanying captions, Cook seeks to communicate the deep sense of place and community, a place where they have to work together to survive.

The limited edition includes a signed copy of the book and an 8x10" silver gelatin print of Pomegranate Still Life, Osh, signed, numbered and in a protective sleeve in the front of the book." — from Melanie McWhorter's post on Black Apple on photo-eye Blog.

Also by Thatcher Hullerman Cook, A Guide to Field Techniques for Documentary Photographers offers essential advice on pursuing long-term documentary projects. From hiring interpreters and preparing for long stints on the road to maintaining a sustainable business model, this book helps to provide basic tools for anyone taking their photography to the next level. Copies are arriving soon and are available for preorder.

"[Douglas Stockdale's] own photography has now been collected in his first commercial book, Ciociaria from Rome's Punctum Editions. It contains nearly fifty color photographs born of Stockdale's travels over the course of a year through central Italy, and specifically in the Ciociaria region. Named for the ancient ciocie sandal traditionally worn there, Ciociaria is notable for its paucity of known history. Stockdale's photographs are presented in a spare, conservative design, which suits them, and are accompanied by two short essays that contain some engaging content..." — from Karen Jenkins review of Ciociaria on photo-eye Blog.

"Lucas Foglia's book A Natural Order, published by Nazraeli Press, is an important recording of some contemporary alternative communities in North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and Georgia. The book gives us a series of complex portraits — of people, places, things (and situations) that mostly read as poetry, sometimes with a little slice of 'is this slightly disturbing, or is it just me?'" — from Laura Moya's review and interview of A Natural Order on photo-eye Blog.

Paysages D'un Exile by Rif Spahni offers a stunning collection of panoramic black-and-white images showing the people and landscape that make up the Sahrawi refugee camps in Tindouf, Algeria. The images are surreal depictions that often obscure the human forms visible in the larger landscape. By doing so, Spahni suggests only trace human existence, allowing the viewer to question human conflict and the loss of a sense of home and personal rights.

Unordinary Lives by Manca Juvan gives the viewer a glimpse of the tragic day-to-day life of many Afghan civilians. Caught between opposing sides and the struggle for control of land and resources, the people in Juvan's essay remind us of the human cost of this ongoing conflict. Unordinary Lives uncovers the extraordinary stories of those caught in the middle of a horrific situation.
