Frontcountry is the follow-up to Lucas Foglia’s first critically-acclaimed monograph, A Natural Order. Frontcountry deals with the socio-political landscape of the American West as it continues to be transformed by massive mining operations. Cowboys and ranches coexist with industrial mines in Foglia's intimate and at times strange photographs, focusing on the people living within a changing America.

After Nobuyoshi Araki's wife passed away, their beloved cat Chiro took a central role as companion in Araki's life. The subject of several books by Araki, Cat features photographs taken in 2010 as Chiro was approaching the end of her life. Araki’s sense of loss is immediate in the photographs inside Cat — from an obsessive investigation to understand death and also an appreciation of the finite nature of life itself.

Manifestations of the Spirit provides a sweeping look at the exquisite, abstract work of Minor White. Over 150 photographs fill the pages of this monograph — published as a companion reader for the J. Paul Getty Museum's major exhibition of White's work, on view from July 8 to October 19, 2014.

J.H. Engström's Ende Und Anfang documents an extensive road trip through Europe and all over the United States in his youth. Wide-eyed wonderment is well-captured by Engström, whose eye focuses on the strange and uncanny moments and idiosyncrasies of the people he encounters on his travels.

Michael Wolf has photographed various aspects of life in Hong Kong since 1994, most famously for his images of stunningly vast high-rise apartment buildings. Hong Kong Trilogy captures the city on a smaller scale, focusing on objects found in the street. Mops, gloves and other items of clothing are pictured hanging in odd configurations on the street, small installations made by workmen or occasionally the result of chaotic typhoon winds.

Pikin Slee is a new body of work from renowned photographer Viviane Sassen. A departure from her recent fashion work, Sassen's photographs document a remote village of the Upper Suriname River in Guiana, largely made up of individuals whose ancestors escaped Dutch slavery in the 18th century. Feeling a connection between her cultural history and that of the villagers, the Dutch photographer's meditative images focus on the natural landscape and the Saramacca's traditional way of living.

Antibodies contains more than 2500 photographs — making it a definitive resource on the controversial work of Antoine d'Agata. Exploring prostitution, drug addiction, homelessness and war, d'Agata devotes himself entirely to investigate people living on society's fringe.

The Western Front by Stanley Greene contains more than one hundred photographs made between 1975 and 1985, documenting the rich punk culture of San Francisco. Stanley Greene photographed the bands (The Mutants, The Dils, Flipper, Tuxedo Moon, The Tubes, Los Lobos, The Avengers, Dead Kennedys), groupies and live shows during a time when punk music was called 'Art and Music' and was becoming a national movement.
