Lee Friedlander (Seibu Museum of Art and the Asahi Shimbun) [SIGNED]

Lee Friedlander (Seibu Museum of Art and the Asahi Shimbun) [SIGNED]

FRIEDLANDER, Lee, SZARKOWSKI, John, TSUJII, Takashi, YAMAGISHI, Koko, YOKOE, Fuminori First edition, first printing. Signed in black ink on the half-title page by Friedlander. Hardcover. Fine black silk cloth-covered boards with title blind-stamped on cover and stamped in gold on spine, with photographically illustrated dust jacket. Photographs by Lee Friedlander. Essays (in Japanese and English) by John Szarkowski, Takashi Tsujii and Koko Yamagishi. Includes a biography (in Japanese and English) compiled by Fuminori Yokoe. Designed by Kazuo Nitta. 132 pp., with 106 black and white plates beautifully printed on matte paper by Dainippon Printing Company, Tokyo. 10-11/16 x 11-9/16 inches. Out of print. Extremely scarce. A spectacular copy of this beautifully printed and rare Lee Friedlander retrospective published on the occasion of the Lee Friedlander exhibition held in Japan under the auspices of the Seibu Museum of Art and the Asahi Shimbun. Lee Friedlander's work is widely known for transforming our visual understanding of contemporary American culture. Known for passionately embracing all subject matter, Friedlander photographed nearly every facet of American life from the 1950s to the present. From factories in Pennsylvania, to the jazz scene in New Orleans, to the deserts of the Southwest, Friedlander's complex formal visual strategies continue to influence the way we understand, analyze, and experience modern American experience. Friedlander's work continues to influence photographic practice internationally, in part due to the heightened sense of self-awareness that is a trademark of so many of his photographs and in part because of his ability to embrace wide-ranging subject matter, always interpreting it in an elegance that hadn't existed prior to his work. Fine (very light aging to top edge of text block only) in Fine dust jacket. One of the least-known outstanding monographs of Friedlander's work. Includes a portfolio from the photographer's "Cherry Blossom Time in Japan" series (previously published only in a rare 1986 portfolio of 25 photogravures) in addition to essays by John Szarkowski, Takashi Tsujii and Koko Yamagishi. Signed by Author.
Joan Fontcuberta: Trepat: A Case Study in Avant-Garde Photography

Joan Fontcuberta: Trepat: A Case Study in Avant-Garde Photography, Artist’s Limited Edition [SIGNED]

FONTCUBERTA, Joan First edition, first printing. Artist's limited edition of 350 copies (this being #072/350), signed and numbered in black ink on the rear free endpaper by Fontcuberta. Hardcover. Gray cloth-covered boards with harvester blade attached to cover, Trepat logo stamped on front cover and title stamped in black on spine; no dust jacket as issued; contained in a custom cloth-covered clamshell box with tipped-in four-color plate on lid. Photographs and illustrations by Joan Fontcuberta. Essays (reproduced in two booklets printed on blue paper bound to the larger book) by Joan Fontcuberta and "Slavoj Fried." Pages 169-172 of the second booklet, ostensibly containing a list of plates and acknowledgements, are intentionally torn out to represent the incomplete nature of Fontcuberta's fabricated historical recovery. Unpaginated (180 pp.), with four-color and monochrome plates throughout. Book is 9-3/8 x 8 inches; clamshell is 10-3/8 x 8-7/8 inches. New in publisher's shrink wrap (slit open for inspection). NOTE: Pages (169-172) of the second booklet are intentionally torn out. From the publisher: "In 1914, industrialist Josep Galceran Trepat created an industry for the production of agricultural machinery that would become one of the economic driving forces of Spain during the twentieth century. Cultivated man, attentive to the dynamics of the art of his time, Mr. Trepat commissioned to some of the great masters of international photography for advertising and corporate image of his company. He was a connoisseur and very passionate about the work of Man Ray, Albert Renger-Patzsch, László Moholy Nagy, Alexander Rodchenko, Charles Sheeler, Walker Evans and many other photographers of the historical avant-garde that found in industrial forms an inspiring universe that would result in a complete aesthetical renovation. A century after its founding, the Trepat Collection reveals itself as an unknown treasure of the history of photography. The MACSA (Museum of Archaeology of Agricultural Systems), in collaboration with the Historical Archive Trepat Tarrega (Lleida) has decided to present an exhibition commemorating the centenary of the Trepat factories. Curated by Joan Fontcuberta, a creator himself but also a historian and author of several works on the history of Spanish photography. This book published by Éditions Bessard accompanies the exhibition. In his introductory essay, the curator writes: 'Looking at these works from a historical perspective and beyond its purely utilitarian origins, the images here masterfully show the experimental path of avant-garde movements: from Cubism to the New Objectivity, from Precisionism to Surrealism, from Constructivism to Social Realism . '". From Timothy Prus: "I love this book principally because it transcends its historical photobook format by using an enormous dose of irony. Part of its success rests with its nature of stopping just half a millimeter before the irony becomes over-bearing. It is based on the archive of the trepat engineering works that specialized in farm tools and agricultural engineering. The archive actually exists and has been well cared for over many decades. Fontcuberta has woven the images together with a story of how the founder was an aficionado of modernist photography. The founder Josep Trepat Galceran was supposedly a friend and supporter of modernist photographers such as Charles Sheeler, Albert Renger-Patzsch, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy and Alexander Rodchenko. Using an elegant ruse, he never actually states that they were real friends, all is left to our human nature to assemble this message. Many of the illustrations, using photography and illustration, do recall the machine based aesthetics of these acknowledged masters. In many cases they are actually more interesting. The truth is of course that the images accidentally recall the works of modernist photography and bear witness to the inspiration this kind of typological image had on the mainstream modernist movement. Interwoven with the visual essay are images totally constructed by Fontcuberta. The physical make-up of the book and the printing are very standard, but that is exactly what one would expect from such a work. In the end I liked it for becoming part of the history of fake and humorous books. I am sure the attitude to photography encoded in its structure will provide numerous starting points for the work of other artists." Signed by Author.

New (original blood print, gelatin silver print, book and clamshell case all in flawless, pristine condition). From the publisher: "Carolee Schneemann is one of the pioneers of performance, installation, and video art. Although other visual artists, such as Salvador Dali and Yves Klein, had used live self-portraiture and performance as a vehicle for public provocation, Schneemann was among the first to use her body to animate the relationship between the world of lived experience and the imagination, as well as issues of the erotic, the sacred, and the taboo. In the 1960s, her work prefigured the feminist movement's sexual self-assertion for women, and by the mid-1970s, her work anticipated the field of women's studies and its critique of patriarchal institutions. In the 1980s, she was one of the first to experiment with virtual environments. Imaging Her Erotics integrates images from Schneemann's works in painting, collage, drawing, and video sculptures with written material drawn from the artist's journals, dream diaries, essays, and lectures. Encompassing four decades of her work, it demonstrates her profound influence on artists in all media. An opening essay by Kristine Stiles presents Schneemann's major themes and places her work in a historical context. Among other topics, the book covers Schneemann's response to the widespread use by artists of the ideas of theoreticians such as Georges Bataille, Jacques Derrida, and Jacques Lacan; her relationship to male artists such as Joseph Cornell, Robert Morris, and Claes Oldenburg; and reminiscences about her friends Ana Mendieta, Charlotte Moorman, and Hannah Wilke. The book also contains essays by Jay Murphy and David Levi-Strauss and interviews with the artist by Kate Haug, Linda Montano, and Aviva Rahmani." Signed by Author.

HIDO, Todd, HOMES, A. M. NOW ACCEPTING PRE-ORDERS FOR SHIPPING EARLY NOVEMBER 2019. Price is net to all; promotional discounts do not apply. 2000/2019. Remastered third edition. Hardcover. Printed paper-covered boards, with photographically illustrated dust jacket, in a custom slipcase. 56 pp. with 26 four-color plates, printed on heavy weight matte art paper, using cutting-edge technologies in both the pre-press and production phases (see publisher's description below). 17 x 14 inches. Photographs by Todd Hido. Introduction by A.M. Homes. The trade edition of this remastered third edition was limited to 4000 hardbound copies. [Cited in Martin Parr and Gerry Badger, The Photobook: A History, Volume III. (London and New York: Phaidon, 2014)]. New in publisher's shrink-wrap. From the publisher's description of the first printing, announced in 2000: "Todd Hido's large color photographs of suburbia are lonely, forlorn, mysterious. and strangely comforting. Hido photographs the interior rooms of repossessed tract homes, and the outsides of similar houses at night whose habitation is suggested by the glow of a television set or unseen overhead bulb. Seldom does the similar evoke such melancholy. Yet rather than passing judgment on his anonymous subjects, Hido manages to turn the banal into something beautiful, imbuing his prints of interiors with soft pastels, and allowing the exteriors to glow in the cool evening air." From the publisher (about the remastered edition): "We are excited to announce a newly remastered edition of Todd Hido's iconic and highly sought-after first monograph, House Hunting. To celebrate the upcoming 20th anniversary of this important book - certainly one of the most influential and oft-cited photography monographs of our time - we have collaborated closely with the artist to achieve a new impression of the highest possible fidelity. Printed on heavy weight matte art paper, using cutting-edge technologies in both the pre-press and production phases, this new edition of House Hunting stays true to the original design and format while delivering even more accurate color rendition and nuances in tone and saturation. It will be a welcome addition to collections lacking access to the very scarce original printings; and to those fortunate enough to own a copy of the original edition, it further illuminates the images themselves that first catapulted the artist and his first monograph to fame. Todd Hido's photographs have been the subject of solo exhibitions at the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, Kansas City, and most recently at the Musée des Beaux-Arts, Le Locle, Switzerland. Other major institutions that have exhibited Hido's work include the Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington D.C.; Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago; Miami Art Museum, Florida; Netherland Architecture Institute, Rotterdam; Palazzo Ducale, Genova, Italy; Samsung Museum of Modern Art in Korea; and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. His work was recently on view in the 49th edition of Les Recontres d'Arles, France. Work by Hido is held in public and private collections including the Guggenheim Museum, New York; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; the Art Institute of Chicago; the Smithsonian; and Fotomuseum Winterthur. This new edition of House Hunting is limited to 4,000 copies."

Mike Brodie: A Period of Juvenile Prosperity

Mike Brodie: A Period of Juvenile Prosperity, Deluxe Limited Edition Metal Box Set (with Type-C Print Mounted on Aluminum)

BRODIE, Mike, SCHIEK, Paul, WOODY, Jack Price is net to all; promotional discounts do not apply. SPECIAL ORDER. PRICING & AVAILABILITY SUBJECT TO CHANGE. SHIPPING NOTE: Due to size and weight, additional shipping fees apply (calculated at checkout). Box set special limited edition of 20 numbered copies (plus 5 AP), housed in a unique custom box, including a signed mounted print and signed first edition of the book. This table top sculpture is as much art object as it is box set. The custom made set is a 30 lb. steel, glass and fabric object that reflects the rusty and jagged detritus that repeatedly appears in Brodie's images. The print is mounted on 1/8" cold rolled steel. Signed and numbered on verso, it is a 11 x 13 in. C- Type print on Kodak F-Surface paper. It nests perfectly in a carefully and deliberately rusted steel frame with intentionally chunky welds. On top of the print sits a signed first edition book wrapped in a screen printed dust jacket on 75 lb. butcher paper. The colophon, printed directly on a piece of American flag that no longer flies, sits beneath the finishing touch, a 1/4" piece of tempered glass that has been mirrored and etched individually. A reverse sandblasting process was first applied to the glass that allows the title to exist as negative space, allowing the red stripe of the American flag below it to glow through as testament of Brodie's contribution to photography. ABOUT THE BOOK: First edition, first printing. Signed by Brodie. Hardcover, with screen printed dust jacket printed on 75-lb butcher paper. The jacket design originates from Brodie's handwritten notes from the afterword of the book itself. Photographs and text by Mike Brodie. 104 pp., with 60 four-color plates. 13 x 11 inches. As New in publisher's packaging. From the publisher of the trade edition (Twin Palms Publishers): "At 17 Mike Brodie hopped his first train close to his home in Pensacola, FL thinking he would visit a friend in Mobile, AL. Instead the train went in the opposite direction to Jacksonville, FL. Days later, Brodie rode the same train home, arriving back where he started. Nonetheless, it sparked something and Brodie began to wander across the U.S. by any means that were free - walking, hitchhiking and train hopping. Shortly after, Brodie found a Polaroid camera stuffed behind a car seat. With no training in photography, the instant camera was an opening for Brodie to document his experiences. As a way of staying in touch with his transient community, Brodie shared his pictures on various websites gaining the moniker "The Polaroid Kidd" [sic]. When the Polaroid film he used was discontinued, Brodie switched to 35mm film and a sturdy 1980s camera. Brodie spent years crisscrossing the U.S. amassing a collection, now appreciated as one of the most impressive archives of American travel photography. When asked about his approach to travel and photography Brodie has said, "sometimes I take a train the wrong way or.whatever happens a photo will come out of it, so it doesn't really matter where I end up." From the artist: "I have ridden trains over 50,000 miles and taken over 7,000 photographs. I won first place and $10,000 in a photo contest. I gave the money to my mom. I got Internet famous. I deleted my website and stopped taking photos, went back to school and became a diesel mechanic. I don't think much about being rich. I don't want to be famous but I hope this work is remembered forever." Signed by Author.

This deluxe limited edition is accompanied by a limited edition of Hiroshi Sugimoto's 'U.A. Walker, New York, 1978' photograph, scrupulously reproduced in hand-pulled photogravure by the renowned printer Jon Goodman. From the publisher: "This book is the first-ever [major] collection of Hiroshi Sugimoto's 'Theaters' photographs. To create each image, Sugimoto would take a long-exposure photograph of a cinema screen for the entire duration of a movie, resulting in a blank white screen. 'Different movies give different brightnesses,' he said. 'If it's an optimistic story, I usually end up with a bright screen; if it's a sad story, it's a dark screen. Occult movie? Very dark.' The project was partly the result of wanting to make a simple form visible: 'The simplest forms have authority, like a blank white light. And how do you photograph that? You need a framework to make it visible. But this is not simply white light; it is the result of too much information.'" Signed by Author.

PAYMENT: by check or wire transfer (please inquire about payment by credit card).

A complete collection of all books and exhibition catalogues on the work of Lee Friedlander. All titles first edition, first printing. All titles signed by Friedlander. Lee Friedlander's work is widely known for transforming our visual understanding of contemporary American culture. Known for passionately embracing all subject matter, Friedlander photographed nearly every facet of American life from the 1950s to the present. From factories in Pennsylvania, to the jazz scene in New Orleans, to the deserts of the Southwest, Friedlander's complex formal visual strategies continue to influence the way we understand, analyze, and experience modern American experience. Friedlander's work continues to influence photographic practice internationally, in part due to the heightened sense of self-awareness that is a trademark of so many of his photographs and in part because of his ability to embrace wide-ranging subject matter, always interpreting it in an elegance that hadn't existed prior to his work.

Hiroshi Sugimoto: Portraits (Damiani) [SIGNED] [IMPERFECT]

SUGIMOTO, Hiroshi First edition, first printing. Signed in silver marker on the front free end paper by Sugimoto. Hardcover, with photographically illustrated dust jacket. Photographs and text by Hiroshi Sugimoto. Designed by Takaaki Matsumoto. 120 pp., with 70 toned plates. 11-1/4 x 10-1/4 inches. Near fine in publisher's shrink-wrap (bump to dust-jacket and cover at the crown of the spine, not affecting text block; else new). From the publisher: "At first glance, Hiroshi Sugimoto's photographic portrait of King Henry VIII of England is arresting: his camera has captured the tactility of Henry's luxurious furs and silks, the elaborate embroidery of his doublet, and the light reflecting off of each shimmering jewel. The contours of the king's face are so lifelike that he appears to be almost threedimensional. It seems as though the twenty-first century artist has traveled back in time nearly five hundred years to photograph his royal subject. While Sugimoto's portraits of historical figures appear to capture a lived moment in time, they are fictions. These portraits are in fact at least twice removed from the subject: his photograph captures a wax figure that has been created by a sculptor from either a photographic portrait or a painted one. The portraits of wax figures, which in this volume are presented alongside a handful of portraits of living subjects and memento mori, call into question what it is the portrait captures. As with his other major bodies of work-'Dioramas', 'Seascapes', 'Theaters'-Sugimoto's 'Portraits' address the passage of time and history. We take it for granted that a photograph of a living subject is true, but what does that mean?" Signed by Author.

From the publisher: #9. Susan A. Zadeh: I : "Nazraeli Press published Susan A. Zadeh's first monograph, "Drowned in a Dream" to critical acclaim in Spring of 2019, and we are delighted to announce her first contribution to our One Picture Book Two series. Comprising ten self-portraits made specially for this book, "I" is an intimate, vaguely surreal take on a timeless approach to image making, with the artist herself as the subject. Persian by ancestry and birth, Zadeh moved to France as a child, and then to Holland as a teenager. She has lived in Amsterdam ever since. Originally trained as a classical dancer, after a 12-year career at the Dutch National Ballet in Amsterdam she turned to photography and publishing. Zadeh became well-known as a champion of outsider artists through her seminal art magazine "Eyemazing", which ran from 2002 to 2013 and which received a coveted Lucie Award. Since then, she has concentrated on her own work as an artist." #10. Daido Moriyama: Daido Moto: "Daido Moriyama has been photographing motorcycles on the streets of Tokyo for decades, and for his first contribution to our series One Picture Book Two, we asked him to select his favorite pictures of the subject. The result is Daido Moto. Printed full-bleed with double black ink, the eleven images comprising this book display the sleek, raw power of their subject. Born in Osaka, Japan in 1938, Daido Moriyama is one of the most influential photographers of his generation. His work is widely exhibited throughout the world, and he is the author and subject of literally dozens of books. Moriyama is known for his images depicting the contrast of traditional values and modern society in post-war Japan, and for his desire to utilize photography in "the fossilization of light"." #11. Leon Borensztein: Tata: "Leon Borensztein's powerful little book Tata (Polish for "Pappa") pays homage to his father, "Citizen M. Borensztein". Born in the Polish city of Mi sk Mazowiecki in 1912, M. Borensztein received his first military award in 1947. It was a Grunwald Badge, presented to him from the Commander-in-Chief of the Polish Army, for armed struggle against the Germans. He soon after received his second medal, for "Victory and Freedom". The pages of Tata turn to document the many other medals he received through the 1960s. As the list of commendations grows, so the accompanying photographs of the badges begin to feel heavier and almost claustrophobic. That is, until the final spread reveals a white shirt with a single medal. It was presented by The Ministry of Defense of the State of Israel to Mr. M. Borensztein in 1974, for volunteering in the Yom Kippur War. Leon Borensztein's photographs have been widely published and exhibited in the United States and abroad, and are included in the permanent collections of such institutions as the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Art Institute of Chicago; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; and the Tokyo Photographic Art Museum." #12. Laurie Simmons: Instant Decorator: "Laurie Simmons began working on her "Instant Decorator" series in 2001. Based on an interior decorating book of the same name, published in 1976, it comprises works that are collage-like and opulently filled with accessories and characters in dramatic mises en scène. The images are at once aesthetically striking, playful, and loaded with hints and references. A Guggenheim Fellow, Laurie Simmons is the subject of numerous publications, and her work has been widely published and exhibited in the United States and abroad. Her photographs are included in the permanent collections of such institutions as the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Walker Art Center, Mi

From the publisher: #1. Michael Kenna: DMZ (Korean Demilitarized Zone) - The 38th Parallel: "The first title in our new "One Picture Book Two" series is by Michael Kenna, and it is a most timely one. The DMZ, known also as the Korean Demilitarised Zone, is two hundred and fifty kilometers long, four kilometers wide, and runs across the thirty-eighth parallel, dividing the Korean peninsula into North Korea, (Democratic People's Republic of Korea), and South Korea, (Republic of Korea). The DMZ has been a de facto buffered international border since an Armistice Agreement was signed in 1953. Today, thousands of troops from North and South Korea are stationed on both sides of the DMZ. Constant visual and electronic surveillance is conducted. Electrified barbed wire fences, armed guard posts and watch towers defend the perimeters of the zone. Land mines and heavy weapons are in place, ready to be used. The thirteen photographs presented here were made by Michael Kenna during his visits to the South Korean DMZ locations of Cheolwon, Gangwondo in 2005 and Paju, Gyeonggido in 2012." #2. Betty Hahn: Lone Ranger: "Betty Hahn is an American artist known for working in alternative photographic processes. Hahn's work emphasizes photography, while challenging established ideas regarding the medium's presentation. Her work incorporates a variety of techniques including: appropriation and serial imagery and mediums such as lithography, painting, and embroidery. Her extended series of images of the Lone Ranger, created in the 1970s, is one of her best known. Each print in the series is unique; during the decades since the work was made, the series has been broken up, with individual prints being acquired and held in collections across the country. We are pleased to bring together a collection of some of the finest prints from Hahn's Lone Ranger series and present them in this limited edition book. Each copy of the book comes with a loose, signed original print created specially for our One Picture Book Two series. Betty Hahn's work is held within the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Center for Creative Photography, Tucson; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Norton Simon Museum of Art, Los Angeles, among many others." #3. Carrie Mae Weems: Monument: "We are thrilled to announce our second publication with Carrie Mae Weems. In this limited edition book, Weems presents twelve photographs she has made during recent trips into the American South, showing monuments both present and removed. Known for her ability to confront injustice with eloquence, honesty and beauty in her work, Carrie Mae Weems is a true national treasure. Her photographs, films, and videos have been displayed in over 50 exhibitions in the United States and abroad, and focus on serious issues that face African Americans today, such as racism, sexism, politics, and personal identity." #4. Tony Mendoza: floridadogs: "Born in Havana in 1941, Tony Mendoza moved with his family to Miami in 1960. A prolific writer as well as photographer, Mendoza is the subject and author of several books, but is perhaps best-known for "Ernie", a photographic memoir centered on a cat he encountered when he moved into an apartment in New York City. In Floridadogs, Mendoza presents a series of photographs he made one afternoon of beach-loving canines that he and his dog Bob encountered during an impromptu visit to the dog beach at Fort De Soto Park in Florida. Known for his sharp wit and great sense of humor, Mendoza delivers in spades with this glimpse into a secret society of ocean- and beach loving dogs. Tony Mendoza is the recipient of

From the publisher: #5. Mark Ruwedel: Studio E.R. [Ed Ruscha]: "Our first artist's book with Mark Ruwedel catalogues seven buildings used at various times as art studios by Ed Ruscha. Based in Los Angeles, where these images were made, Mark Ruwedel has been photographing the North American landscape for over 30 years. A prolific photographer who visits the same places and subjects again and again over extended periods of time, Ruwedel says of his approach: "I have come to think of the land as being an enormous historical archive; as a whole, the work explores the relationships of the social, technological and cultural with the natural world." Mark Ruwedel's work is widely exhibited in the United States and abroad. It is held within the permanent collections of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Tate Modern, London; and National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa, among many others. He is a Guggenheim Fellow (2014) and a recipient of the Scotiabank Photography Award." #6. Jo Ann Callis: Cheap Thrills: "In her delicious contribution to our One Picture Book Two series, Jo Ann Callis presents 13 highly-charged photographs of suggestively anthropomorphic desserts from her series 'Cheap Thrills: Forbidden Pleasures'. Created in the early 1990s, this body of work was among several that Callis created at the time exploring gender and sexuality. Since emerging in the late 1970s as one of the first important practitioners of the 'fabricated photographs' movement, Callis has used photography to render the sensual tones and textures of fabric and food, or to animate clay figures of her own making. Jo Ann Callis was born in Cincinnati, Ohio and relocated to Los Angeles in 1961. She enrolled at UCLA in 1970 where she began taking classes with Robert Heinecken, among other prominent artists. She started teaching at CalArts in 1976 and remains a faculty member of the School of Art's Program in Photography and Media. She has continued to photograph, draw, and paint, and her work has been widely exhibited in such venues as the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Hammer Museum; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and many others. In 2009 a retrospective of her work, Woman Twirling, was presented by the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles. Callis has received three NEA Fellowships and a Guggenheim Fellowship, among other awards and prizes." #7. Mike Mulno: Residential Variations: "The 13 photographs presented in Residential Variations are selected from a larger body of work of the same title, which depicts a series of homes within a Southern California neighborhood. Through time or a succession of personal aesthetic decisions each house has been reformed from, but still resembles the simple post-war modern home that once defined the neighborhood. Interest and beauty is found within these modest domestic structures and their revisions. Michael Mulno's photographs are included in several public and private collections including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; and Museum of Photographic Arts, San Diego." #8. Jan Banning: The Sweating Subject: "The Sweating Subject is a series of group portraits of tribal chiefs and their court, which includes myself, photographer Jan Banning. All are members of the Gonda or Dagomba tribe in the Northern Territories of Ghana - except for me: I am from the Netherlands. I came to Ghana on an assignment to photograph the mixing of tradition and modernity and was invited by the chiefs to have my photo tak

Lee Friedlander: Playing for the Benefit of the Band: New Orleans Music Culture [SIGNED]

FRIEDLANDER, Lee, DODDS, Warren "Baby" Please inquire. Pricing and availability are subject to change (price is net to all; promotional discounts do not apply). First edition, first printing. Signed in black ink on the title page by Friedlander. Hardcover. Photographically illustrated paper-covered boards, no dust jacket as issued. Photographs by Lee Friedlander. Introduction by Warren "Baby" Dodds. Designed by Katy Homans. 207 pp., with 202 plates printed by Meridian Printing, East Greenwich, Rhode Island, from tritone separations made by Thomas Palmer. 9-5/8 x 11 inches. Lee Friedlander's work is widely known for transforming our visual understanding of contemporary American culture. Known for passionately embracing all subject matter, Friedlander photographed nearly every facet of American life from the 1950s to the present. From factories in Pennsylvania, to the jazz scene in New Orleans, to the deserts of the Southwest, Friedlander's complex formal visual strategies continue to influence the way we understand, analyze, and experience modern American experience. Friedlander's work continues to influence photographic practice internationally, in part due to the heightened sense of self-awareness that is a trademark of so many of his photographs and in part because of his ability to embrace wide-ranging subject matter, always interpreting it in an elegance that hadn't existed prior to his work. As New (from Friedlander's personal archive). From the publisher: "Lee Friedlander (b. 1934) first visited the birthplace of jazz in 1957, and immediately set about photographing the aging pioneers of the art form. His love of the music and the people of New Orleans drew him back to the city, and the relationships he formed over time gave him intimate access to a scene that forged one of America's most original artistic traditions. A revised and expanded edition of his 1992 monograph The Jazz People of New Orleans, Playing for the Benefit of the Band features over 200 photographs taken by Friedlander between 1957 and 1982, many of which are published here for the first time. Storied figures such as Duke Ellington and Mahalia Jackson have been captured by Friedlander's disarming lens, and Sweet Emma Barrett, Sister Gertrude Morgan, Johnny St. Cyr, and other luminaries are seen in their homes and the back rooms in which they gathered to play. Also included are photographs of the city's second-line parades, whose jubilant dancing has long been a defining aspect of New Orleans jazz culture." Signed by Author.

From the publisher: "Born and raised in Mississippi and Tennessee, William Eggleston began taking pictures during the 1960's after seeing Henri Cartier-Bresson's The Decisive Moment. In 1966 he changed from black and white to color film, perhaps to make the medium more his own and less that of his esteemed predecessors. John Szarkowski, when he was curator of photography at the Museum of Modern Art, called Eggleston the 'first color photographer,' and certainly the world in which we consider a color photograph as art has changed because of Eggleston's work. From 1966 to 1971, Eggleston would occasionally use a two and one quarter inch format for photographs. These are published here for the first time, adding more classic Eggleston images to photography's color canon." Signed by Author.

Lee Friedlander: Apples and Olives [SIGNED]

FRIEDLANDER, Lee Please inquire. Pricing and availability are subject to change (price is net to all; promotional discounts do not apply). First edition, first printing. Signed by Friedlander. Hardcover. Photographically illustrated paper-covered boards; no dust jacket as issued. Photographs by Lee Friedlander. Designed by Katy Homans. Unpaginated (64 pp.), with 55 plates, printed on matte art paper printed by Meridian Printing, East Greenwich, Rhode Island, from duotone separations made by Thomas Palmer. 10-1/2 x 9-7/8 inches. Lee Friedlander's work is widely known for transforming our visual understanding of contemporary American culture. Known for passionately embracing all subject matter, Friedlander photographed nearly every facet of American life from the 1950s to the present. From factories in Pennsylvania, to the jazz scene in New Orleans, to the deserts of the Southwest, Friedlander's complex formal visual strategies continue to influence the way we understand, analyze, and experience modern American experience. Friedlander's work continues to influence photographic practice internationally, in part due to the heightened sense of self-awareness that is a trademark of so many of his photographs and in part because of his ability to embrace wide-ranging subject matter, always interpreting it in an elegance that hadn't existed prior to his work. As New (from Friedlander's personal archive). From the publisher: "The master photographer best known for his extensive, insightful documentation of 'the American social landscape' --from jazz musicians to factory hands to New York pedestrians and office workers zoning out at their keyboards-- has recently been spending more time looking at the literal, natural landscape. His monumental 2005 MoMA retrospective showed, for the first time, a new series of landscapes made in the American West, while for Olives and Apples, he has looked back over the last decade's work and culled a forest, tree by tree. His docile subjects, apple trees photographed in New York State and olive trees photographed in France, Italy and Spain from 1997-2004, are presented in circumstances ranging from sunny, leafy summer health to glittering winter ice-storm glory. Some of the most striking compositions are shot from just inside the reach of a tree's furthest twigs, so that expanding branching limbs fill the frame, stretching out around the viewer."

Roni Horn: Pooling Waters (Ísland: To Place 4: Two Volume Set)

Roni Horn: Pooling Waters (Ísland: To Place 4: Two Volume Set)

HORN, Roni First edition, first and only printing. Hardbound. Two volumes, each bound in black linen cloth with blind-stamped title, no dust jacket as issued. Photographs and text (in English and Icelandic) by Roni Horn. Volume 1 (photographs): 96 pp., with 52 four-color and black and white plates, beautifully printed on heavy fine matt art paper. 10 1/2 x 8 3/8 inches. Volume 2 (text): 176 pp., with 1 four-color and 3 plates, and one map illustration with text, printed on fine matt art paper. Volume 1 is a collection of photographs united by the near invisible presence of the geothermally heated waters of Iceland. The structures built to access and utilize these waters range from the remote and inaccessible hot pot to power plants and baptismal fonts. The photographs were taken in Iceland between 1990 and 1993. Volume 2 is a collection of 36 texts -- short anecdotal pieces, essays and short stories gathered from the artist's experiences in Iceland. This is the fourth volume in the series of the work, To Place. To Place is an ongoing series of publications. Each volume is a unique dialogue addressing the relationship between identity and place. The books take as their starting point Iceland and the evolving experiences of the artist in this country. This first edition was limited to 1000 hardbound copies. [Cited in Andrew Roth, ed., The Open Book. (Göteborg, Sweden: Hasselblad Center in association with Steidl Verlag, Göttingen, Germany, 2004), and in Martin Parr and Gerry Badger, The Photobook: A History, Volume II. (London and New York: Phaidon, 2006).] Out of print. Very scarce. Near Fine (slight rubbing to the tips and corners endemic to the title, else Fine). This is the fourth volume in the series of the work, To Place. To Place is an ongoing series of publications. Each volume is a unique dialogue addressing the relationship between identity and place. The books take as their starting point Iceland and the evolving experiences of the artist in this country. From Roni Horn (in a 1995 interview with Claudia Spinelli): "The entrance to all my work is the idea of an encyclopedia of identity. It is best represented by the books, the series called To Place, which is extremely important to me. I have been working on this since 1988. It's really the heart. It is a series of books, each one of which adds to the whole in a way that alters the identity of it retroactively. So the first volume appears to be a book of drawings. The second book was about a completely different subject but in the same format. With the third volume people start to realize something: 'Well, this looks like a series, so there must be some relationship. But I haven't a clue as to what it is.' Then there was the fourth volume, with texts and photographs. The books are this very slow process of accumulation in the period of a life, my life."

New in publisher's shrink-wrap (opened only for signature). From the publisher: "In the 1960s and '70s, Lee Friedlander (born 1934) developed his signature approach to documenting the American "social landscape": deadpan, structurally complex black-and-white photographs of seemingly anything, anybody or anyplace that passed in front of his lens. But as he was making his name as a documentary photographer capturing the look and feel of modern American life, he was also photographing his closest friends, a practice he has continued throughout his long career. A slipcased set of six paperback books, The Mind and the Hand presents the photographer's intimate portraits of six of his best friends taken over the past five decades. The subjects, each presented in their own separate volume, comprise a veritable who's who of one of America's most fertile periods in photography: Richard Benson, William Christenberry, William Eggleston, Walker Evans, John Szarkowski and Garry Winogrand. Each volume begins with a relevant quote from its subject." Signed by Author.
