Shadow Catchers Shadow Catchers: Camera-less Photography contains a survey of five artists who capture breathtaking images by using light sensitive paper to induce the presence of objects and manipulation to the paper surface. From photograms to chemical manipulation, this book takes the viewer through the creative minds and ingenuity of these artists and explains how they use the medium to steer clear of traditional photographic practices. The artists in this book include, Pierre Cordier, Susan Deges, Adam Fuss, Garry Fabian Miller and Floris Neususs, all of which offer a unique perspective to the boundaries of photography as art. Copies are now in stock and are available for order.

Kiev "Kiev, the latest in the sketchbook series from the on-going Sochi Project by Rob Hornstra and Arnold van Bruggen, features images taken by Hornstra with a 1970s Kiev camera. A gift from a friend in Sochi, the Ukrainian built medium-format SLRs were known for being almost exact clones of pricier models, but also for Soviet-era manufacturing defects. My dad actually had one of these cameras. As a child, I was intrigued by its size and Soviet-sounding name. For Hornstra, the appeal lay in photographing Sochi with a camera that had seen it in the 1970s and how such a camera can change the act of seeing." — from Sarah Bradley's post on photo-eye Blog. Signed copies are now in stock and are available for order.

"Mountain Shadow Place is a documentation of a road trip from Devil's Tower National Monument in Wyoming to the Badlands National Park in South Dakota from photographer Nicholas Muellner. We experience the rich beauty of these places through Muellne'’s sophisticated, visually-descriptive narration, while the photographs depict them as banal tourist destinations, marred by human intervention. The tension between the natural landscape and our innate urge to exploit it is captured perfectly by Muellner, making this unsuspecting little book quite powerful. This softbound signed monograph, limited to 100 copies, contains six digital offset and screen-printed photographs, two of which also come as poster inserts." —from Erin Azouz's upcoming post on the photo-eye Blog. Signed copies are now in stock and are available for order.

Gagosian Gallery has published a beautiful exhibition catalogue for their recent show of William Eggleston's Los Alamos. The exhibition offered twenty-eight pigment images — some never seen until now — that exemplify Eggleston’s iconic road trip through the United States between 1966-1974. The images here are classic Eggleston, balancing between a humorous interpretation of modern America and a haunting landscape that is reminiscent of a culture in spiritual peril. This new look at Los Alamos is a reminder of America's changing physical and social landscape, leading the viewer through one of the most important bodies of work in early color photography. Copies are now in stock and are available for order.

Singular Beauty by Cara Phillips is housed in a unique, almost transparent staple stitched book design. The curious presentation allows the viewer to access an element of voyeurism not available in most traditional book models. Here we are taken through the world of cosmetic surgery, from sterile operating tables to beautiful rooms filled with images of the 'ideal' body, Phillips gives the viewer insight into a lucrative business dependent upon a culture of superficial beauty. Copies are now in stock and are available for order.

Offering another striking survey of the work of Rinko Kawauchi, publisher Seigensha has produced Illuminance, Ametsuchi, Seeing Shadow. Here we are taken through the mundane and often overlooked world Kawauchi shares with us through her camera lens. Often using subtle light sources and capturing the everyday, the artist takes the viewer through a surreal world that transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary. Copies are now in stock and are available for order.
