New Titles


Thomas Mailaender’s Cyanotypes appears in a first edition of 300 copies, printed by Ditto Press. His cyanotypes appropriate images taken from the artist’s ‘Fun Archive’, a personal collection of absurd and anonymous pictures drawn from the Internet. Sample images here.

Giverny Polaroids contains Darren Almond’s photographs of Monet’s garden, and emphasises the sculptural floral motifs in his photographic work. Also, the individual flower photographs can be separated from the book block, which is protected by a translucent plastic cover, in which a small signed picture of a polaroid with the famous lily pond has been inserted. Sample images here.

From Self Publish Be Happy, Close My Eyes is a “frenzied reworking” of the archive of photographer Gareth McConnell. Kaleidoscopic imagery fuses portraits he took of rave-goers in Ibiza with pictures he both shot and found of a number of key moments in recent British history. We will be selling signed copies. Sample images here.

Storyteller is a major retrospective of the career of the influential photographer Duane Michals, whose radical experiments from the 1960s on include inscribing texts onto the photographs themselves. It accompanies a major traveling retrospective of his work. See here for further details and sample images.

A new edition of Uncommon Places: The Complete Works presents a definitive collection of Stephen Shore’s landmark series. For this reissue, the artist has added twenty more images and a statement discussing the rediscovery of photographs never previously printed and what it means to expand a classic series. Sample images here.

Echoing some significant titles of the past such as Joel Sternfeld’s American Prospects and Shore's American Surfaces, Oscar Palacio’s American Places is a significant body of colour work. Originally from Colombia, Palacio’s eye picks out the significant in apparently mundane places. See sample images here. We will have signed copies.

Agua Nacida is a massive book of underwater nudes by Hugh Arnold. It is reminiscent of the work done a few years ago by Howard Schatz but the images are taken in the sea rather than in an artificial environment. Sample images here.
