New Titles

We start with news of two more special editions from Mack. We’ve already mentioned that they are producing a new edition of Alec Soth’s Niagara in September. More recently they have announced that there is to be a special edition of only 100 copies, signed and with a signed original print measuring 28 by 32 cm.

Also in September, Mack will be releasing a Special Edition of American Winter, a new book by Gerry Johansson featuring a signed copy of the book in an embossed slipcase with a signed and numbered print. This is a limited edition of 150. The choice of print has yet to be revealed but we will let you know as soon as possible.

The standard edition of American Winter will be released at the same time. Johansson travelled through semi-deserted towns in Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana, Wyoming and Colorado, finding as much beauty as there was misery in landscapes cloaked in snow.
Editions Bessard have published a new work by Julia Borissova, White Blonde. Initially drawn to archival photographs of Antarctic expeditions, Borissova visited the Antarctic herself, deliberately froze the pictures that she created and then re-photographed them using a medium-format camera. This is limited to 250 copies, each with a signed C-print. Sample images.

Available soon from Mack is The Land In Between, a retrospective of Ursula Schulz-Dornberg, a German photographer, now 80, who has devoted her career to exploring the borderlands between Europe and Asia and, in particular, remains of buildings in the landscape which carry memories of centuries of conflict over territory. Among other countries, she has photographed in Armenia, Georgia, Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia. Most recently she went to Syria to photograph the ancient city of Palmyra. Her images now form some of the last visual documentation of the area prior to its recent destruction. Sample images.
Eriskay Connection are a Dutch publishers with no connection to the Hebridean island of Eriskay that I can see. They are fast building a reputation for quirky titles about subjects you didn’t know existed and The Arsenic Eaters is the latest. It is a photographic and archival investigation into the widespread historical belief that the consumption of arsenic, generally known to be deadly poison, is beneficial to one’s health. The photographer Simon Brugner is based in Vienna and focuses on this practice in rural Austria. Sample images.

My Journey by Tamiko Nishimura is a selection of black-and-white works from the late 1960s to the 1980s: scenes in Japan from train windows, fishing boats, street performers, snowy landscapes. Sample images.
Gradual Thaw is a beautiful collection of black-and-white panoramic landscapes by Toshiya Murakoshi, taken in Japan’s Fukushima region between 2011 and 2015. Sample images.

There is a further recent title by Murakoshi with large-format black-and-white landscapes: What is the Distance to the Moon? The photographs were taken in 2004 and 2005 in various areas of Japan, when Murakoshi crossed the country by train and on foot. Sample images.
Hiromi Tsuchida’s Autistic Space was his first work to be exhibited – in 1971 – but it was not published in book form at that time. Several later projects such as Hiroshima  were published but now Zen Foto Gallery has created a book of his earlier work for the first time. Tsuchida revisited this series of photographs taken in Tokyo’s Asakusa district. He reworked the series, adding 30 new photographs and restructuring the order in which they appear. Sample images.

Jiazazhi have published a second edition of Matjaz Tanjic’s 3DPRK, 3D portraits from North Korea from 2014 to 2018. It includes ten new works shot in 2018. Sample images.

Analog Culture is a major work on a subject that has had insufficient attention in book form. It explores the collaborative artistic relationship between photographers and printers through the practice of Schneider/Erdman, a New York-based printing business owned by Gary Schneider (himself a widely published and exhibited photographer) and John Erdman from 1981 to 2001. They printed works by artists such as Richard Avedon, James Casebere, Robert Gober, Nan Goldin, Peter Hujar, Gilles Peress and David Wojnarowicz. Illustrated with many examples of their work, it reveals both the technical expertise required and the importance of the close personal relationship between photographers and printers within the art-making process. Sample images.

David Campany is one of the world’s leading contemporary theorists on photography. He is publishing So Present, So Invisible, a series of in-depth interviews with a very interesting selection of photographers including Broomberg & Chanarin, Lewis Baltz, John Stezaker, Paul Graham, Rut Blees Luxemburg, Jeff Wall, Susan Meiselas, Victor Burgin, William Klein and Stephen Shore.
