New Titles

Writer Geoff Dyer has a long-standing interest in photography. His The Ongoing Moment remains a landmark text for anyone interested in the significance of major figures in the medium. One of his subjects in that book was Garry Winogrand. Now Dyer has written a whole book on him: The Street Photography of Garry Winogrand. Dyer selects 100 photographs from the Winogrand archive (all of them reproduced in the book), including eighteen previously unpublished, and responds to each with an original essay. Sample images.
 
In 1970 Ralph Gibson founded Lustrum Press and, through the publication of his own and others’ work, profoundly reshaped expectations of the design and sequencing of photographic books. His first three Lustrum titles, The Somnambulist, Deja-Vu and Days at Sea, which became known as The Black Trilogy, have long been out of print but are now being collected in a single volume. Sample images.
Gibson’s influence can be seen in film director David Lynch’s book of still photography, Nudes, as can the paintings of Francis Bacon. There are over 100 colour and black-and-white female nudes; some of the colour images could plausibly be stills from his movies. Sample images.

In 1977 William Eggleston released Election Eve, his first and most elaborate artist’s book, containing 100 original prints in two leather-bound volumes housed in a linen box. It was published in an edition of only five, and has therefore become one of Eggleston’s most collectible books. A new Steidl edition recreates the full original sequence of photos in a single volume. Sample images.

If you missed out on Eggleston’s Democratic Forest: Selected Works, please note that Steidl have recently been published a reprint.
Bluecoat Press have recently published a collection of Paul Trevor’s wonderfully evocative black-and-white photos of Liverpool in the 1970s as Like you’ve never been away. We’ve managed to snap up the final four signed copies. Sample images.

Toilet Paper magazine are producing an issue in collaboration with Martin Parr. We will be stocking signed copies of the Collector’s Edition of 1000 copies. Sample images.
State of Nature is a very impressive sequence of colour landscape photographs by Claudius Schultze, showing how many of Europe’s most valued landscapes are now sustained by feats of human engineering. Sample images.

After many years documenting sacred sites across the globe, Kenro Izu in Seduction returns to the still lifes that featured in his earlier work. Some very fine pears are among his favourite subjects. Sample images.
Now three new publications from Mack Books. Experimental Lake by Canadian photographer Guillaume Simoneau takes as his starting point a remote area in northwestern Ontario: 58 small lakes that have been protected as far as possible from human impacts and are used as a site of scientific exploration. " Simoneau’s allusive photographs use the freshwater site as a means to look outwards, to consider a world beyond our own reflections." Sample images.

Broomberg & Chanarin’s War Primer 2 was originally released as a limited edition book by Mack in 2011. It’s now being made available to a wider audience as a paperback to coincide with an exhibition at the Pompidou Centre in Paris. Images of contemporary conflict are inserted within the pages of Bertolt Brecht’s War Primer. We will have signed copies. Sample images.
 
Vandalism presents John Divola’s early work from the 1970s in which he created his own graffiti within abandoned houses in Los Angeles and photographed the results. Sample images.

Mack’s long-awaited new edition of Paul Graham’s 12-volume hardback a shimmer of possibility is to be published in February. This is a signed edition.

The first, limited edition of Rafal Milach’s The First March of Gentlemen quickly went out of print last year. UK publisher Gost Books will shortly be bringing out a second edition, limited to 650 copies. Sample images.
 
Chinese publishers Jiazazhi have published a new edition of Chen Xiaoyi’s beautiful work Koan. This edition has an entirely new design, reproducing the photogravure images of semi-abstract landscapes on a continuous sheet with 44 folds in a traditional Chinese binding. We will have signed copies. Sample images. We also still have copies of the first edition from PJB in the UK and these are signed too.

Finally we have been authorised to sell the few remaining copies of the Collector’s Edition of William Neill’s recently published Retrospective. Sample images. The trade edition is also still available.
