New Titles

The Month before Trump is the result of Harvey Benge’s visits to San Francisco and New York in the month before the presidential election. The selection – of “places, people and scraps of visual information” is unashamedly subjective, the product of a political perspective at odds with Trump’s. Initially we will be selling a special edition limited to 100 copies which includes a 7"x 5" signed & numbered print. Sample images.

Following last year’s new edition of Alec Soth’s Sleeping by the Mississipi, we bring you exciting news of Mack Book’s new edition of Soth’s next major project, Niagara. First published by Steidl in 2006, Niagara is a testament to the hopes, dreams and disappointments of visitors to this national attraction. “I went to Niagara for the same reason as the honeymooners and suicide jumpers,” says Soth, “the relentless thunder of the Falls just calls for big passion.” Soth worked over two years on both the American and Canadian sides of the Falls using a large-format 8x10 camera. This isn’t published till September but we wanted to tell you now because we will have signed copies. Sample images.
Having recently told you that we would have signed copies of the new edition of She Dances on Jackson in June, we can now add that Mack will simultaneously be publishing another Winship collection And Time Folds and that we will have signed copies of that too. It accompanies a career retrospective at the Barbican Art Gallery encompassing all Winship’s major series and including previously unpublished recent work.

We will shortly have stock of Mark Power’s Maintenance. Published by Seigensha in Japan, it came about as a result of a commission to photograph the maintenance of trams, buses and metro trains of Tokyo’s well-regarded public transport system over a two-week period in October 2016. Sample images and video.
Over the last few years Sturm & Drang have brought out new editions of several of Rene Groebli’s early black-and-white photobooks. His later colour images have barely been available in book form. This has now been addressed by the same publisher’s Color Work. If the early black-and-white portraits, nudes and images of railways were restrained in their approach, his colour work brought out a much more experimental side to his character. Commissions from big corporations like General Motors and the drug company La Roche became vehicles for radical experimentation showing the influence of surrealism. Sample images.

Luath Press have published the first book by Scottish photographer Alex Boyd, whose landscapes are often created using Victorian processes such as wet-plate collodion and photo-gravure. Many of the photographs in St Kilda: the Silent Islands were made using a camera which once belonged to the great landscape photographer Fay Godwin. Sample images.
In Mountain Interval from Radius Books, Renate Aller presents colour images of mountain sides and peaks taken across six continents from elevated locations, isolated from surrounding landscapes. Sample images.

In Last Diamonds, Fernando Bosso gives us dramatic black-and-white images of melting Arctic icebergs, which he describes as “gems of nature in danger of extinction” as a result of global warning. Sample images.
While engaged on a photographic project along the Yangtze River, Yan Wang Preston came upon a 300 year old tree that had been uprooted and packaged to be sold to a hotel in a nearby city for $70,000. Meanwhile the village the tree had come from was being erased to make way for a dam. In China, transplanting nature is big business. In the photo series Forest, Preston tracks down many uprooted creatures that are now in concrete deserts. Sample images.

Through marriage John Comino-James has direct personal links to the island of Rhodes, and in The Rhodes Project he revisits photographs preserved in old family albums and sets them against his own recent images. He explores the history of this territory, its occupation disputed over many centuries, from the time of the Knights Hospitaller, through the Ottoman Empire to the Second World War at its incorporation into Greece. Sample images.

 
French multimedia artist/trickster Thomas Mailaender started a collection of absurd, amateur photographs from the internet in 2000. This has now built up into what he calls The Fun Archeology. Often he reapplies these photographs to unusual surfaces and materials, removing them from their original contexts and creating idiosyncratic commentaries on contemporary culture. Sample images.

Aperture have published The Photographer in the Garden, a historical overview of fine art photographers’ fascination with gardens from the invention of the medium to the present day. The featured photographers include Anna Atkins, Karl Blossfeldt, Eugène Atget, Edward Steichen, Imogen Cunningham, Stephen Shore, Robert Mapplethorpe, Nobuyoshi Araki and Collier Schorr. Sample images.
Image Building examines the central role that photography has played in shaping public perceptions of significant private and public buildings from the 1930s to the present day. It shows how different photographers represent the same building and explores the evolution of commercial architectural photography. It includes work by Julius Shulman, Candida Höfer, Andreas Gursky, Thomas Struth, and others. Sample images.

World Press Photo 2018 has just been published with the prizewinning press images from 2017. Sample images.
