New Titles

Nazraeli published Jeffrey Conley’s first monograph Winter to great acclaim in 2011 and have now just published his second, Reverence. Printed in duotone on special matt Japanese art paper, this first edition is limited to 750 numbered and slipcased copies. Jeffrey Conley crafts each of his prints by utilizing two traditional darkroom methods, gelatin silver and platinum/palladium printing processes. In the 1990s Conley lived in Yosemite and taught at the Ansel Adams Gallery. He now lives in Oregon and many of the images are from here and California; others are from overseas including Iceland and New Zealand. We will have signed copies. Sample images.

Simon Roberts’ new title with Editions Bessard is in a limited edition of 250 and includes a print. Green Lungs of the City traces the changing face of urban parks, beginning in 1660 with St. James’s Park in London up to present day landscape designs where green spaces are often created from reclaimed industrial land. Sample images.
Vanessa Winship’s she dances on Jackson was a great success when first published and went out of print very quickly. Mack Books have a new edition due out in June. We’re mentioning it well ahead of time as we’re going to be getting signed copies and want to make sure we have enough for customer demand. Originally published in 2013, She Dances… brought a fresh perspective to the American road trip, one with an additional poignancy in view of recent political changes in the US. Sample images. (A small number of the first edition are still available at £135.)

Sian Davey received great acclaim for her portrait of her younger daughter, Alice, who has Down's Syndrome, in her previous book. Her older teenage daughter started to complain that her mother was devoting all her photographic energies to Alice, so Davey devoted three years to a portrayal of Martha from the ages of 16 to 19. We will have signed copies. Sample images. (Signed copies of Looking for Alice are also still available.)
Gabrielle Duplantier is a highly creative young photographer working in her native Basque region of southern France. She creates series of images where landscapes, animals and people are brought together in a dreamlike vision. Her most recent work was recently published as Terres Basses. Sample images.

Duplantier is one of the photographers featured in a very interesting new collection Eyes Wild Open, which traces the post-WWII development of a style of photography that is confessional, immersive and sometimes transgressive. It includes the work of Klein, Frank, van der Elsken, Moriyama, Nakahira, Strömholm, Petersen, Engström, d’Agata and Sobol. Sample images.
A major exhibition covering the 1970s, the first ten years of Luigi Ghirri’s career, will tour Europe this year. To coincide, Mack are publishing The Map and the Territory, a major survey of his work in this period as well as his many influential writings on photography. Ghirri’s fourteen different photo series – all of them represented here – combine to form an unparalleled summation of Italy during that decade. Sample images.

Out of the Darkness features early work by Joel Meyerowitz travelling through Spain, dating from 1966 and 1967 when it was still under Franco’s regime. This is the one period when he takes both colour and black and white photographs before fully turning to colour photography. Sample images.
Spanish photographer Inaki Bergera picks up the baton from an earlier generation of US topographic photographers in New American Topographics. He focuses on the buildings and streets of contemporary California and Arizona. Unlike most of his predecessors, his images are in colour. Sample images.

Australian photographer Bill Lane similarly locates himself in the New Topographics tradition and his Older Industrial Parks is explicitly created in dialogue with the work of Lewis Baltz. In contrast to Baltz, Lane’s photos are in colour and are less explicitly critical of the impact of industrial parks on the Australian environment. Sample images.
In Sirens, Rachael Talibart conveys the awe and exhilaration of being confronted by the ocean in its most tempestuous mood. All the wave-forms featured were captured during the storms that pounded the south coast of England in 2016 and 2017. Sample images.

Emerging from a deep immersion in the rural life of Romania, Pascual Martinez and Vincent Saez have created an intimate notebook of documentary work exploring the country's landscape and the integral connections its inhabitants have with nature. The Tree of Life Is Eternally Green is published by the enterprising independent Overlapse. Sample images.
