This catalogue was completed on 3 April 2010, the same day on which the iPad came onto the market. Around this time, a German newspaper DIE WELT printed on its front page an iPad displaying the “real” front page of the newspaper on its screen – essentially a “printed iPad”. This shows what most publishers of today’s newspapers believe to be the fate of printed matter: for them it is already dead, and they are preparing to move all content online, following the seductive lead of the iPad. This too will be the way with books, be it literature, science or art publishing. Most books printed now are done so industrially, with little care given to aesthetic standards – in short, without love. This is how most publishers think. I think differently. If you stand on press today, watching the sheets tumble from the machine, real ink on beautiful paper, you realise what a pleasure it is to hold a substantial multiple in your hand: something haptic, with its own smell and weight. And in a sense our books already prove their worth: their renown and monetary value increase over the years, something that will not be so with the iPad which will constantly be replaced by updated versions of itself. The real luxury of reading text and image is for me connected with the book object of printed paper. I believe that well-made printed products have a healthy future – but only if they are produced with at least 95% analogue competence. Gerhard Steidl Göttingen, 3 April 2010

Robert Frank Paris, 10 March 2009 Robert Frank and his wife June Leaf have returned to their hotel, a stroll from the Place de la Madeleine. They have spent the afternoon walking along the Canal Saint-Martin with their friend François-Marie Banier. Frank, eighty-four, and Leaf, seventy-nine, are weary though alert, and pleased to be back in their hotel room, where Banier and Steidl have joined them. Frank and Steidl sit next to one another on the edge of the bed, leafing through a maquette of a book of stereo-photographs by Henry Frank, Robert’s father. These images have been scanned from glass plates which Robert brought with him from Switzerland when immigrating to America in 1947, and which Steidl carried to Göttingen in the summer of 2008. The plates show visions of a passionate amateur photographer in the 1920s and ’30s: snow-capped alps, an automobile fair in Paris’ Grand Palais, hot-air balloons, views of Venice and Pisa, and family photos including the smiling infant Robert. The conversations between Frank, Leaf, Banier and Steidl this evening move between English, French and German.

Robert Frank: What’s the title of the book? Gerhard Steidl: ‘Father Photographer’. ‘Henry Frank’ and then ‘Father Photographer’, instead of ‘Photo Album’.

RF: That’s nice. I don’t see any double pages though. GS: They’re here at the back.

François-Marie Banier:

The paper Robert – you want it creamy,

or you want it white?

GS: [hands Frank a sample of paper] This is the paper we used for The Americans. I would like to use it again, it’s a little creamy but not really yellow.

How to Make a Book with Steidl

FMB: [stroking the paper] Exactly like that? RF: I think it’s wonderful. And the text? GS: It’s at the very end, in three languages. I think we should start with German because your father lived in Switzerland, then have English, and finally French. RF: Yes. GS: And at the front of the book: ‘Edited by Robert Frank and François-Marie Banier’. RF: Yes. GS: And will we make the book just privately for ourselves, or is it for the bookshops as well? RF: No, I think it should be for the bookshops. I’ve done that before for my family, made two or three copies of a book and bound them in leather, but this is something different…

The books on the following pages are about Steidl. But they are not about self-promotion, nor are they intended as marketing tools to sell more books in an ever competitive, ever diminishing market. In a digitalized world where some have heralded the “death” of the book as we know it, these publications are a celebration and affirmation of the printed photobook. They are a way to share how our books are made: to describe the people and procedures, both mechanical and handmade, through which an idea is transformed into a book object. Not least, they are intended as a reference for those who want to learn themselves how to craft books. We are particularly excited about Steidl, Impressions en Continu: L’Art du Livre, the catalogue for an exhibition of the same name to be shown at the Monnaie de Paris during the Month of Photography in November 2010. The exhibition will present the tools, materials, processes – and a secret or two – of bookmaking to the general public. The publications on the following pages are about how we make photobooks now, and about how we will continue to make them in a future in which the highest production standards will be more important than ever.

Impression en Continu

Everyone knows a beautiful photography book when they see one. But few people realise what a labour of love a fine publication represents, and what diverse and complementary skills combine to ensure the best possible results. For many photographers and curators, the quality of a Steidl publication represents nothing less than the gold standard. It was the intensity of our personal experience of book-making at Steidl, as Musée de l’Elysée curators and authors, that led us to the idea of an exhibition which would demonstrate the art and craft involved in the production of a Steidl book: the A to Z of the process, from the first rough sketches on scraps of paper, through the tortured convolutions of “dummy” production, to the (often agonizing) choice of the “right cover”, not to mention the myriad choices of paper, typography and binding. We determined not only to show all of these diverse operations in as accessible a manner as possible, but also to give visitors a sense of the experience of daily life at “Steidlville”, where photographers, graphic designers, printers, curators and other photography specialists rub shoulders as they busy themselves with one or another aspect of book production, the combined results of which are destined to expand and enrich the field of art

photography. Karl Lagerfeld, Ed Ruscha, Jim Dine, Roni Horn, Jim Goldberg, Jeff Wall, Juergen Teller, Deborah Turbeville, Raymond Depardon, Massimo Vitali, David Bailey and dozens of other renowned artists have made generous loans of their raw bookmaking materials, their experiments with inks and papers, trial typography, proposed image-sequences, proofs, and ideas for covers. Several of the artists have written texts for the show, including Jeff Wall, Alec Soth and Michael Ruetz. Gerhard Steidl himself contributes his favourite papers and typefaces, as well as books which left a deep impression on him in his formative years. A range of Steidl’s most beautiful books are displayed, and the craft of fine printing demonstrated. Following its showing in Lausanne in late 2009 and early 2010, “Lasting Impressions: the Art & Craft of the Steidl Book” will travel to Paris this November as part of the celebrations of the 30th anniversary of Le Mois de la Photo. The exhibition will open at La Monnaie de Paris under the auspices of the Maison européenne de la Photographie. It is accompanied by a new edition of the richly illustrated catalogue proudly bearing the imprint “Steidl”. As in Lausanne,

Vernissage: Monnaie de Paris Paris, November 2010, 11 quai de Conti

Koto Bolofo I Spy with My Little Eye, Something beginning with S

Monte Packham Concentric Circles A Chronicle of Steidl Publishers

In the age of digital photography, Koto Bolofo is an old-school photographer who still uses an analogue camera. With

“Gerhard’s like a Communist. You have to go into the salt mines with him. If you’re willing to go there then you’re like

his patient, thoughtful approach to photo-documentation, his pictures celebrate objects and people in a humble,

brothers in arms and he’ll do what needs be.” Robert Polidori

uncluttered way. Over a period of two months, Bolofo explored the corridors of Steidlville in Göttingen with the aim of creating a portrait of the printing and publishing house more personal than the photojournalistic series that have been made in the past. He achieved this by focusing on often overlooked everyday details such as smeared rubber gloves, tubs of ink and scraps of paper in a wire basket, and by photographing those who work at Steidl in settings and poses chosen by the sitters themselves. I Spy with My Little Eye, Something beginning with S is Bolofo’s homage to the craftsmanship and creativity of bookmaking.

Concentric Circles chronicles the time between 26 August 2008 and 27 January 2009 at Steidl Publishers. The book is the first to document the printing and publishing house, and is a window into the processes, experiences and bustle of Düstere Strasse 4, Göttingen. Comprising a log of hundreds of entries, Concentric Circles retells and records events as they unfolded in their unpredictability and urgency – Günter Grass tapping tobacco into his pipe while refining the typography of his book Die Box, Gerhard Steidl deciphering the arabesque faxes of Karl Lagerfeld, the sudden breakdown of the printing press.

Göttingen, where every Steidl book is crafted; or Gerhard Steidl himself, who founded the company 41 years ago and continues to determine the substance of its creations – the nature of its circles? Steidl’s concentric circles are in flux: new circles of progress and difficulty constantly emerge, while others dissolve. Look closely and the seemingly empty rings of space between circles are actually imbued with traces of past activities – the memory of circles that once were. Monte Packham was born in 1981 in Sydney. He has bachelor degrees with honours in art history and law from the University of Sydney, and has worked as an editor at Steidl since 2007.

Liliane Bettencourt Prix de la Photographie 2010

Stephen Waddell Hunt and Gather

“Stephen Waddell is one of those patient spirits whose art is devoted to depiction, to the contemplation of sight itself. This is neither the oldest nor the original form of art, nor possibly the most significant these days, but it may be the most stable, consistent, and richest in possibility. Its models are Velázquez, Cézanne, Manet, Atget, and Walker Evans. Waddell’s photographs are usually taken surreptitiously in public places.… He concentrates on notation and suggestion, a delicate and circumspect observation of people in their labor, leisure, and their solitude. He almost never alters anything with a computer. Waddell is an outstanding colorist and has a material, chemical feeling for color, both as pigment in painting, and as any and every colored object and creature he encounters with his camera. A photographer who works as Waddell does can’t pick and choose the colors of the things depicted the way a painter can; he or she has to take them as they are and take them quickly. But there are still ways of composing in color, even under these conditions, and Waddell knows about these ways.…” Jeff Wall in Art on Paper The photographs assembled in this book were mainly taken in Germany, others are from the last twenty years in Japan, Italy, France, Vancouver, and Lebanon. They give an overview of Stephen Waddell’s photographic work, recently honoured by the Liliane Bettencourt Prix de la Photographie 2010. Stephen Wadel was born 1968 in Vancouver, British Columbia. His parents were involved with the arts and he took courses at Simon Fraser University with Jeff Wall. He began making photographs as a means of “sketching” in preparation for paintings, but by the late 1990s he came to photography seriously in its own right. His work has been widely exhibited and is part of international collections. In 1998 he moved to Berlin and proceeded to work there for the next ten years before returning to Vancouver, where he resides today.

“Baltz’s work exemplifies the ways in which photography, beginning some four decades ago, started to loose the bonds of its isolation within its own segregated history and aesthetics and began to take its place as an equal among other media.” Adam D. Weinberg, Alice Pratt Brown Director, Whitney Museum of American Art Works celebrates Lewis Baltz’s indelible influence on the development of contemporary photography. Comprising ten volumes in a slipcase, Works contains reissues of Baltz’s most significant books, many of which are now collectible rarities, as well as four as yet unpublished projects. Each of the books has been crafted in close collaboration with Baltz, who oversaw each stage of production at Steidl. From scanning of the vintage prints, to book design, selection of paper and binding materials, pre-press and printing, Baltz has shaped the form and aesthetic of these publications. Printed in luminous quadrotone, Works is a testament to the importance of the book as a primary medium in Baltz’s practice. Lewis Baltz, born 1945 in California; his work has been the subject of over 50 solo exhibitions. Baltz became famous as a part of the New Topographics movement in the 1970s, and has published 17 monographs. He lives in Paris and Venice. Lewis Baltz WORKS

William Eggleston, Before Colour

William Eggleston, Before Colour


William Eggleston Before Color

A few years ago in the archives of the William Eggleston Artistic Trust in Memphis, a box was found containing Eggleston’s earliest photography – remarkably in black and white. The photos were subsequently exhibited at Cheim & Read gallery in New York and sold. This book reunites these photos in their entirety, and shows the artistic beginnings of a pioneer of contemporary photography. In the late 1950s Eggleston began photographing suburban Memphis using high-speed 35 mm black and white film, developing the style and motifs that would come to shape his pivotal colour work including diners, supermarkets, domestic interiors and people engaged in seemingly trivial and banal situations. Now, fifty years later, all the plates in Before Color have been scanned from vintage prints developed by Eggleston in his own darkroom. In the mid 1960s Eggleston discovered colour film and was quickly satisfied with the results: “And by God, it worked. Just overnight.” Eggleston then abandoned black and white photography, but its fundamental influence on his practice is undeniable. William Eggleston, born in 1939 in Memphis, is one of the most important contemporary American photographers. From the 1970s onwards, his work has significantly contributed to the recognition of colour photography as an artistic medium. Eggleston has published his work extensively, and it has been shown in many major exhibitions around the world. He continues to live and work in Memphis, and travels considerably for photographic projects.

Past Present Peru

Past Present Peru John Cohen is a photographer, musician and filmmaker who has cultivated a fifty-year long fascination with the people, cultures and landscape of Peru. Cohen took his first photographs in Peru in 1956 and has returned many times since to continue documenting, adding musical and film recordings to his still images. Cohen’s photographs, stored for years in boxes in a barn near his home, and the music, today archived at the Smithsonian Institute, have not been published in their entirety until now. Past Present Peru combines photographs, textiles, music and film in an ambitious book object. The photographs are for Cohen a “fragmented collection of visual insights, a record of deepening awareness” that depicts the diversity of Peruvian life including religious festivals, potato farming, and the recent introduction of hydroelectricity. The textiles, reproduced in luscious colour, embody pre-Columbian craft traditions more than 5,000 years old. Cohen began recording music in Peru in 1964, using a portable tape recorder to capture performances wherever he could: at festivals, in villagers’ homes, even waiting at a bus stop. Cohen’s films are about “a sense of things that weren’t expressed in words”, and are themselves a unique historical record. The unifying thread between the different media of Past Present Peru is Cohen’s own writing – anecdotal, precise, historically informed – words that capture the past and present of Peru, and anticipate its future. John Cohen, born in 1932 in New York, is a photographer, filmmaker, and founding member of the New Lost City Ramblers. A masters graduate from Yale University, Cohen participated in the artistic circles of late 1950s and early

Martin Parr’s collection of photobooks is one of the finest to have ever been assembled and Protest on Paper is a box set which brings together five books from that collection as facsimile reprints. Parr has selected diverse books which each deal with the subject of protest in quite different ways. From the documentation of various protest movements to the actual book being a form of protest, all these reprints are gems within the history of photographic publishing. A few are known but many are new, even to the connoisseur of photography books. All these books are virtually impossible to locate, so these reprints will make a substantial contribution to our understanding of this sub-genre of the Dirk Alvermann Algeria

photobook. The box set is accompanied by a booklet which includes an introduction by Martin Parr, an essay discussing the wider context of these books by Gerry Badger, and English translations of all the texts in the books. Enrique Bostelmann América: un Viaje a traves de la injustica First published in 1970 by Siglo XXI Editores, Mexico City; Bostelmann, a Mexican photographer, journeyed through Latin America looking for examples of injustice, such as the exploitation of indigenous Indians who were forced into factories and menial jobs. Paolo Gasparini Para verte major, América Latina First published in 1972 by Siglo XXI Editores, Mexico City; Gasparini, an Italian born photographer who has lived in Caracas most of his life, traversed Latin America to document the contrast between communism and capitalism. The book also documents and uses graffiti and graphics to emphasis his polemic. Dirk Alvermann Algeria First published in 1961 in Berlin, GDR; Alvermann, a photographer originally born in West Germany, published his book about both sides of the Algerian conflict in East Berlin. The radical design was inspired by Russian film stills.

BRUCE DAVIDSON OUTSIDE INSIDE , 1966–2009 Bruce Davidson Outside Inside

Over the course of his long career Bruce Davidson has travelled the world making reportage stories both on assignment as a member of the Magnum agency and on subjects of personal interest. A few years ago he returned to his archive of negatives housed in a room in his Manhattan apartment and began a ritual of revisiting each and every one of the stories he had made, from his work as a student in 1954 to his urban landscapes in Los Angeles in 2009. Printing in his darkroom alongside the archive, he began to elaborate a very personal selection, discovering forgotten images and throwing new light onto some of his most famous series. Outside Inside is the result of this work, a sumptuous three volume box set with fifty-three chapters over 800 pages. Each chapter is introduced by a short text written by Davidson himself. The result is a celebration of the development of a master of the medium and an autobiography, a photographer’s life seen through his work. Bruce Davidson began taking pictures at the age of ten in Oak Park, Illinois. He continued to further his exploration of photography at Rochester Institute of Technology, followed by Yale University. He was later drafted into the military, stationed in the Arizona desert and then sent to a unit near Paris, where he met Henri Cartier-Bresson. When he left military service in 1957, Davidson freelanced for LIFE, and in 1958 he became a member of Magnum. His numerous awards include a Guggenheim Fellowship (1962) and the first National Endowment for the Arts in Photography (1967). His work has been extensively published and included in many major fine art collections. Most recently, Steidl published England/Scotland 1960 and Circus.

Robert Frank Tal Uf Tal Ab

“Tal Uf Tal Ab is Swiss-German. It means direction up the valley – down the valley. Now I live and wait and think mostly in the places I live – New York City and Mabou N.S.” Robert Frank Tal Uf Tal Ab is a book of new photographs by Robert Frank. Frank’s subjects are his life now, an inquisitive existence shaped by memory: newsstands, streetscapes, portraits of friends and his wife June Leaf, interiors, a self-portrait. This book is the latest phase in Frank’s unceasing exploration of photography, and a humble yet important progression in the medium of the photobook. Robert Frank was born in Zurich, Switzerland in 1924 and went to the United States in 1947. He is best known for his seminal book The Americans, first published in 1958, which gave rise to a distinct new art form in the photobook, and his experimental film Pull My Daisy, made in 1959. His other important projects include the book Black White and Things, 1952, the book The Lines of My Hand, 1959, and the film Cocksucker Blues for the Rolling Stones, 1972. He divides his time between New York City and Nova Scotia, Canada.

Brigitta Burger-Utzer / Stefan Grissemann (ed.) Frank Films – The Film and Video Work of Robert Frank

“I put my Leica in a cupboard. Enough of lying in wait, pursuing, sometimes catching the essence of the black and the white, the knowledge where God is. I make films. Now I speak to the people in my viewfinder.” Robert Frank Robert Frank turned to filmmaking at the end of the 1950s. Although he has made 27 films, the work is largely a well kept secret. Frank approaches each film project as a new experience, challenging the medium and its possibilities at every turn. He has amalgamated documentary, fiction, and autobiography, cutting across genres. This book offers a visually unique approach to Frank’s films: only new stills taken from videotapes have been used and they add up to a visual essay on Frank’s cinema that establishes an engaging dialogue with his photographic work. Each film is introduced with detailed analysis, discussing the history and the aesthetics of Frank’s film work. An interview with Allen Ginsberg provides an insider view. Together the texts and images offer an innovative and in-depth approach to the oeuvre of one of the greatest and most restless artists of the 20th century. Robert Frank was born in Zurich, Switzerland in 1924 and went to the United States in 1947. He is best known for his seminal book The Americans (1958), which gave rise to a distinct new art form in the photo-book, and his experimental film Pull My Daisy (1959) both reproduced by Steidl within The Robert Frank Project. Brigitta Burger-Utzer is a founding member of sixpackfilm distribution, and since 1992 its managing director. In 2004 she founded the DVD-label INDEX together with Medienwerkstatt Wien. Stefan Grissemann is the head of the cultural section of the weekly magazine “profil”. He has curated several cinema retrospectives in Europe and published books on modern Austrian film.

William Carter Causes and Spirits Photographs from Five Decades

“Watch any mother kneeling beside her toddler, pointing and explaining what they are looking at. Our urge to see, and to connect, starts there.” William Carter This book is both an autobiography of William Carter and a study of people. Carter’s photographs, beginning in 1960, take the viewer on his travels throughout the world, from home to New York and Kurdistan, from Dublin to Gaza. Whether working as a photojournalist or purely for himself, Carter focuses on the gestures and expressions of people (sometimes charming, sometimes unsettling), and on streets and landscapes that often long for human presence. The subtitle “Photographs from Five Decades” might seem misleading as it implies a “typical” photobook where the sequence of images is primary. For Carter, however, it is the interplay between his photographs and writings that allows him to see into himself and his subjects: indeed he calls himself a “photographer-writer”. In Carter’s words, his work aims to capture the “hidden implications, eye-blink compositions, odd ironies and happy accidents” of the world. William Carter, born in 1934 in Los Angeles, is a photographer, writer and part-time jazz musician. He has exhibited and published widely, and his work is held in public and private collections in the USA and Europe. Combining his photographic and written work is Carter’s preferred approach to bookmaking, as seen in such publications as Ghost Towns of the West (1971) and Preservation Hall (1996).

Martine Franck Women / Femmes

“Taking a portrait of someone – be it man or woman – starts with a conversation. It is important for me to try and catch the person when they are listening or when they are in a pensive mood or have forgotten my presence. I rarely ask a person to pose for me as I prefer that they reveal themselves as they wish. For me the eyes and the hands are most important and when possible I like to use natural light. All through my life as a photographer I have made a point of photographing women whom I admire, who have done something special with their lives, who have protested against their fate, also those close to me like my daughter and grand daughter and intimate friends all of whom appear in this collection.” Martine Franck Martine Franck has travelled the globe photographing the social landscape. With an abiding interest in the simplicities of the everyday life of varied social classes and diversified cultures, portraiture has always been a primary focus in her practice. This book brings together a selection of her photographs of women, from factory workers in Bucharest to geishas in Kyoto and encompassing the film stars, artists, writers and performers she has photographed since the 1960s. It is both a celebration of women and a testimony to the unique vision and empathy of a great photographer. Martine Franck, born in Belgium, grew up in the USA and England before studying Art History at the University of Madrid and the École du Louvre in Paris. A member of the Magnum Photos agency since 1980, her work has been widely exhibited and has been published in numerous monographs. Exhibition: Tokyo, 25 August, 2010 Co-published with

British artist Susan Derges engages with themes of alchemy, testing the inter-relation between the elements of fire, water, earth and air. Her beautifully crafted images reflect a holistic system that encompasses the human psyche and finds its metaphors through the natural world. From 1980–86 Derges lived and worked in Japan, introducing the influence of Japanese minimalism which she combined with her discovery of ‘camera-less’ photography techniques. Her first major series, Chladni Figures, was created by sprinkling powder onto photographic paper made to vibrate with sound, making visible the shapes of invisible sound waves. Subsequent series continued to explore hidden forces and cycles of nature and her most frequently recurring subject is water. She captures the interference patterns in flowing rivers, the energy of waterfalls and breaking waves and the states of water from ice to cloud, from the solid to the intangible. Derges often uses the landscape at night as her darkroom. She submerges large sheets of photographic paper in rivers and uses the moon and flashlight to create the exposure. These images can appear abstract from a distance yet highly descriptive when seen close up. They confound a sense of orientation, questioning what is above or below and implying a dialogue between the microcosm and the macrocosm, or matter and spirit. This book, edited by Martin Barnes, Senior Curator at the V&A, gathers together all of Derges’ major series to date and the key texts about them. Drawing from twenty-five years of work, the chronological sequence is creatively rearranged by the artist and grouped according to the four elements and the transitions between them. Susan Derges was born in London in 1955 and studied painting at Chelsea School of Art and the Slade School of Fine Art. Her work has been the subject of numerous individual and group exhibitions and is in the permanent collections of The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Victoria and Albert Museum, London and numerous others around the world.

Massimo Vitali Natural Habitats

In the first volume of Landscape with Figures published in 2004, Massimo Vitali showed his entire oeuvre from the nineties, broadening the scope of his survey of beaches and discos to include skiing resorts and swimming pools from across the globe. Since 2007 Vitali has modified his perspective, shifting between an architectural background and a bizarre and fantastic mise en scène inspired by Romantic landscape paintings from 17th–19th century. The second volume Natural Habitats, comprises seventy photographs, spanning from 2004 to 2009 – also includes a “genealogical tree” of his photographs: 120 thumbnail images which make visual connections by color, composition and time. Massimo Vitali, born in Como, Italy in 1944, studied photography in London. He first worked as a photojournalist in the 1970s and then later as a camera operator. In the more recent past, his interests have turned to photography as part of contemporary art. His work has been shown in Arles, Paris, London and New York.

Tomasz Gudzowaty Shipwreckers

Chittagong, the second largest city in Bangladesh, has become the main place in the world for dismantling large ocean going ships and oil tankers, a massive recycling industry commonly known as shipwrecking. The so-called Chittagong “shipyard complex” consists of approximately ten kilometers of flat beaches and sand-banks where ships are stranded and, after any usable equipment is removed, broken down for their steel. Dozens of thousands of people work there in hazardous conditions, without proper training and gear, using simple, manual tools, gas torches and primitive jacks. Tomasz Gudzowaty photographed these “shipwreckers” in 2004 and 2005. His black and white photographs show men and even children dwarfed by the giant vessels suggesting the vulnerability of the workers and the former beauty of the now polluted beaches. Tomasz Gudzowaty was born in 1971. He studied law at the University of Warsaw. His photographs have been published in Max Magazine, L’Equipe, The Guardian, Newsweek, Forbes, Time, Photo and Stern View and he is also the author of several books. He is a multiple winner of some of the most important photography contests, including World Press Photo, Pictures of the Year, NPPA Best of Photojournalism.

Nicolas Faure Heavenwards Engel sind im Bild

Heavenwards is Nicolas Faure’s answer to Rainer Maria Rilke’s question in the First Duino Elegy: “Who, if I cried out, would hear me among the Angelic Orders?” At first sight these photographs seem to show nothing but forests, trees, rivers and light, but in every picture there is something hiding – a human being, an animal, perhaps an angel, as the German subtitle suggests. There lies an uncertainty in Faure’s pictures, about what is real and what will happen in the future. As Rilke puts it: “Perhaps there remains some tree on a slope, that we can see again each day: there remains to us yesterday’s street, and the thinnedout loyalty of a habit that liked us, and so stayed, and never departed.” Nicolas Faure, born in 1949 in Switzerland, is a self-taught artist. Since 2000 he has taught photography at the Ecole cantonale d’art in Lausanne. His work has been widely exhibited and published.

Jitka Hanzlová Cotton Rose

The photographs in Cotton Rose were taken in the Gifu Prefecture of Japan. Hanzlová strongly resisted the long tradition of Japan travel journals showing a foreign and exotic Japan. She was aided in this by her own history of having left her village in the former Czech Republic for political reasons in 1983. The experience of having been a “foreigner” herself enabled her to step beyond cultural differences to make an intimate portrayal of a people and their own sense of home. Hanzlová’s photographic voice has always been a muted and gentle mirror of her sympathetic approach, and in Japan she found a people and a landscape which perfectly suited her language. Jitka Hanzlová, born 1958 in the Czech Republic, moved to Germany in 1982. Between 1987 and 1994 she studied visual communication at University Essen, specializing in photography. She has been awarded several photography awards, including the BMW – Paris Photo Prize 2007. Venues for solo exhibitions of her work have included the Museum Folkwang, Essen, Kicken Gallery, Berlin and Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam.

David Bailey Flowers, Skulls, Contacts

What do flowers, skulls and contact sheets have in common? Not much you might think, but David Bailey begs to differ. This book combines Bailey’s recent colour photographs of still-life flowers and skulls, with black and white contacts of his iconic celebrity portraiture and fashion work from the 1960s. One might analyze Bailey’s combination of these bodies of work in light of the vanitas tradition, seeing it as a commentary on mortality and the passing of time. Indeed such a reading is tempting when comparing images of wilting roses with contacts of Brian Jones and John Lennon, both of whom appear confident in the prime of youth, unaware of the fates that will befall them. But perhaps this is too much, and Bailey himself would probably tell you so. For him, the flowers, skulls and contacts are simply different projects that he was working on simultaneously and decided to combine because he likes the idea of “eclectic collections”. Enough said. David Bailey, born in London in 1938, is one of the most successful photographers of his generation. By the 1960s his work, especially for Vogue, had already made him a cult figure. His numerous books include Trouble and Strife, Nudes, If We Shadows, The Lady Is a Tramp and David Bailey’s Rock ’n’ Roll Heroes. Steidl has published Bailey’s Democracy, Havana, NY JS DB 62, Pictures That Mark Can Do, Is That So Kid, EYE, and 8 Minutes. Exhibition: Hamiltons Gallery, London, June 2010.

David Bailey, Bailey’s Delhi Dilemma

David Bailey, Bailey’s Delhi Dilemma


David Bailey Bailey’s Delhi Dilemma

“Pink is the navy blue of India.” Diana Vreeland How does one photograph Delhi without the results looking like clichéd, tourist-friendly images taken from the pages of National Geographic? How does a photographer of David Bailey’s standing portray India without seeming condescending? These questions are at the heart of Bailey’s Delhi Dilemma. Bailey has been to India fifteen times, and in this new series of photographs he avoids focussing on the cultural and economic differences between East and West that can make photos of the country appear overly didactic. Instead, Bailey depicts the colours, characters and textures that make Delhi unique – a magenta sari, an infant walking alone on a rust-coloured road, a bright blue plastic tarpaulin – and so creates a portrait of the city that is sensitive without being self-indulgent. These books are the first of many that will present Bailey’s ongoing response to his Delhi Dilemma. David Bailey, born in London in 1938, is one of the most successful photographers of his generation. By the 1960s his work, especially for Vogue, had already made him a cult figure.

Philippe Garner and David Alan Mellor Antonioni’s Blow-Up

Michelangelo Antonioni’s 1966 film Blow-Up is a masterfully constructed and paced exploration of the enigmas that challenge our interpretations of both the moving and the still image. Photography plays a key role at the very core of the film, providing the metaphorical site for the director’s questioning of the relationship between reality and perceptions. This book provides a fresh and stimulating study of Antonioni’s masterpiece. It reassembles and re-tells – through onset stills and the original blow-ups – the film’s key narrative and pictorial strands in a focused visual investigation that is complemented by the authors’ analytical essays. These texts draw on new research and effectively situate the film in the social and creative contexts that informed Antonioni’s screenplay and art direction – on the one hand through an account of the milieu of fashionable photographers and models and the media through which they became so vivid a phenomenon, and on the other hand through the revelation of the artistic and literary reference points that so pervasively enrich the film. Philippe Garner is a Director of Christie’s, an internationally respected specialist in the fields of photography and 20th century decorative art and design. David Alan Mellor is Professor of Art History at the University of Sussex and is acknowledged as an authority on British art, film and photography of the last century. Both have published widely and curated a range of international exhibitions.

Martin d’Orgeval The Soul

“These photographs speak to our search for truth, the truth in things, and the truth within each of us. By focusing on simple objects they hint at what endures in our understanding of the world. Whilst evidently not self-portraits, they are nonetheless a documentary and introspective confession, intended to reach beyond the intimate and to touch on something of a larger order, something spiritual. To create is an act of existence – but there is no existence without destruction. The architecture of this place is in an intermediate, dormant state. It was once alive and it is not yet dead. In this space between two universes a curious time descends, a quiet, transparent moment with no pollution of any kind. With the clarity of a mirror it simultaneously reflects a perfect and a damaged version of our soul. It is not the importance of the subject that holds my interest. I like the idea of being able to write, paint or make a photograph out of almost nothing, from or about an object without apparent qualities, to begin with the most obvious and simple things and discover in them some overriding truth. Their power can be captivating as they serve as a statement on the natural chaos of life.” Martin d’Orgeval Martin d’Orgeval was born in 1973 in Paris, where he still lives and works. While studying art history at the Sorbonne, he designed several exhibitions and books on the work of the French photographer François-Marie Banier, including Perdre la tête (Steidl) in 2005 at the Villa Médicis in Rome. His work centres on highly dramatic still lives and landscapes and has been exhibited internationally.

Koto Bolofo Horse Power

The horse has a long and rich history as a subject in the visual arts. In sculpture and painting, in the decorative arts, and most recently in photography, the horse has been celebrated for its cultural and social importance. Horse Power is a compelling photographic portrait of the horse today. From 12 to 17 September 2009, Bolofo documented life on the grounds of esteemed racehorse trainer Christiane Head-Maarek at Chantilly, France’s famous racehorse region. Rising early each morning to make the most of the rare access he had gained, Bolofo photographed charming every-day occurrences – a blacksmith forging a horse shoe; filing a horse’s hoof; grooming, walking and riding the animals – as well as making candid portraits of ambitious teenage jockeys-to-be. Bolofo explores every aspect of “horse power” – the physical strength of these million-dollar animals, their cultural and sporting status, and not least their noble beauty. Koto Bolofo was born in South Africa in 1959 and raised in Great Britain. Bolofo has photographed and made short films for magazines such as Vogue, Vanity Fair, and GQ. He has created advertising campaigns for companies including Hermès, Louis Vuitton and Dom Pérignon. Bolofo lives in the Vendée, France, and his books with Steidl include Venus, I Spy with My Little Eye, Something beginning with S, Vroom! Vroom!, La Maison and Grande Complications.

Koto Bolofo La Maison





Koto Bolofo is the first photographer to have been granted unlimited access to the secret workshops of Hermès, the house famous for its leather goods, scarves and other beautiful objects. La Maison, itself an elaborate object comprising eleven volumes and the result of seven years’ work, showcases Bolofo’s painstaking documentation of the Hermès universe. Bolofo’s photos explore every facet of Hermès craftsmanship, from the manufacturing of saddles, silk scarves and the famous Kelly Bag, to ready-to-wear, shoes and perfume. Bolofo left no stone unturned: even the private Hermès museum is revealed, a treasure trove hidden in Hermès headquarters on the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré. The story of how the La Maison project began has become part of Hermès history. In 2002 Bolofo met the chairman of Hermès, Jean-Louis Dumas. Says Bolofo: “Mr Dumas asked me where I came from and I said Lesotho in South Africa. He was shocked and excited, explaining that his great great great grandfather was a missionary, and how the Sothos – my tribe – had protected him. Mr Dumas welcomed me as his cousin and gave me carte blanche to photograph what I liked at Hermès.” Koto Bolofo was born in South Africa in 1959 and raised in Great Britain. Bolofo has photographed and made short films for magazines such as Vogue, Vanity Fair, and GQ. He has created advertising campaigns for companies including Hermès, Louis Vuitton and Dom Pérignon.

David Lynch Works on Paper

This exceptional book brings together a collection of more than 500 drawings dating from the 1960s by the renowned American film director, David Lynch. His artwork was first unveiled to the general public in March 2007 by the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain in Paris. Sketches, watercolours, or simple doodles, this vast collection – carefully conserved by David Lynch since his adolescence and regularly used by him as a source of inspiration – offers a unique glimpse into the artist’s creative process. Using all types of media, from Post-it notes to napkins, the diverse and complementary nature of these drawings allows us to dive into David Lynch’s universe and establish links between his artwork and his films. This exceptional book, both in terms of its format and the quality of reproduction of the works, is a co-publication between the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain and Steidl. David Lynch, born in Montana in 1946, spent his childhood drawing and painting. In 1965, he went to study at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia, where he discovered a passion for moving images and made his first experimental short film. He is now among the world’s most talented directors, receiving a Golden Lion in 2006 to honour his career. Throughout his life, David Lynch has never stopped painting, drawing, photographing, and making animated films. He has even broadened his artistic practice to include animation, music composition, and sound production. Exhibition: David Lynch, The Air is on Fire at GL Strand, Copenhagen, September 2010.

William A. Ewing (ed.) Ernst Haas Colour Correction

Ernst Haas is unquestionably one of the best-known, most prolific and most published photographers of the twentiethcentury. He is most associated with a vibrant colour photography which, for decades, was much in demand by the illustrated press. This colour work, published in the most influential magazines in Europe and America, also fed a constant stream of books, and these too enjoyed great popularity. But although his colour work earned him fame around the world, in recent decades it has often been derided by critics and curators as “overly commercial”, and too easily accessible – or in the language of curators, not sufficiently “serious”. As a result, his reputation has suffered in comparison with a younger generation of colour photographers, notably Eggleston, Shore and Meyerowitz. Paradoxically, however, there was also a side of his work that was almost entirely hidden from view. Parallel to his commissioned work Haas constantly made images for his own interest, and these pictures show an entirely different aspect of Haas’s sensibility: they are far more edgy, loose, complex and ambiguous – in short, far more radical than the work which earned him fame. Haas never printed these pictures in his lifetime, nor did he exhibit them, probably believing that they would not be understood or appreciated. Nonetheless, these works are of great complexity, and rival (and sometimes surpass) anything done at the time by his fellow photographers. This book is intended to correct the record. Ernst Haas was born in Vienna in 1921, and took up photography after the war. His early Austrian work on returning prisoners of war brought him to the attention of Life Magazine, but he courageously declined a job as staff photographer in order to keep his independence. At the invitation of Robert Capa, Haas joined Magnum in 1949, developing close associations with Capa, Bishof and Cartier-Bresson. He began experimenting with colour, and went on to become the premier colour photographer of the 1950s. In 1962 New York’s Museum of Modern Art mounted its first solo exhibition of his colour photography. Haas’s books were legion, and one The Creation (1971) sold 350.000 copies. Ernst Haas received the Hasselblad award in 1986, the year of his death. Exhibition: Arles, July 2, 2010 – September 2010.

I’ve always been fascinated by artists who use different techniques to express themselves – Robert Frank for example, photographer and film maker; Günter Grass, author, sculptor and draughtsman; or Roni Horn, a conceptual artist working in multiple media. When making books with such artists, I always try to show the totality of their artistic achievement. François-Marie Banier is one of these artists: writer, photographer, painter and draughtsman. I’ve been familiar with François-Marie’s work for many years, and am now delighted to collaborate closely with him on “Autocar”, an ever-growing series of books. On the following pages you will discover some of these – photo-books, artist books, and objects d’art – each unique and which together give shape to François-Marie Banier’s complex and whimsical creative universe.

P.S. Lately François-Marie Banier has been deemed a “bon vivant” by envious journalists. I personally am very fond of this so-called bon vivant who chooses to spend a large part of his time and money on creating art.

I have always had the dream to make books that would mirror a life formed by the wind pushing us, by the fires I always ignite much to the police’s chagrin: books that, like my photographs, my drawings, my writing – like an attitude – are not produced but crafted. Together with Martin d’Orgeval as the conductor, and Gerhard Steidl as the wizard-publisher, I have ventured to gather these energies and to follow my intuition, to adjoin one by one my spelling mistakes, my un-photogenic works, my pen’s pirouettes, their reverberating souls – to take you with me through mountains of dreams over oceans of laughter and into my life shared with millions whose loving eyes rest on me. With Autocar, Omnibus, we will make a series of tailored books of indescribable forms linking the artist, who is driving the bus, with his readers/passengers who are often models, victims, fatally delivered to the camera’s shutter and the drawn line; linking their fantasies, their needs for evasion, and offering shelter within these whimsical books which most would have thought impossible to publish.

François-Marie Banier was born in Paris in 1946 where he continues to live and work. He is the author of several novels and plays, and the creator of more than twenty photo-books. Banier contributes regularly to The New Yorker. A tireless flâneur, Banier likes nothing more than to wander the streets of Paris with his Leica camera and notebook, portraying whatever he chooses, forever in search of bodies and faces.

Changer de corps

“The body, a magical constant – as touching as the sky, laughter, pain or the night. The body – mystery, attachment, incertitude, a destination and meeting point, a source of joy, appreciation, misunderstanding and confusion. The body – a dream we inevitably have to awaken from. My body changes with every photo I take. This summer I turned black. I drowned in Namibia. Pink deserts, blue rocks, trees with endless branches – in a pond next to a waterfall I became, for the duration of a bath, one of these naked boys, drunken in their pleasure and youth.” François-Marie Banier

These memories returned to me one winter night in 2008 when Pascal Greggory was working on Nuit de Chien, a film directed by Werner Schroeter. For part of the night I watched work on the film set, and the next morning I recovered from the miracles I’d seen by taking a walk to the local market in Porto – with my camera in hand. I observed and photographed the men and women selling the produce they had grown on their land far from the city. Here I discovered the same way of being, the same gentleness and graveness – these people were even wearing the same kind of clothes I knew from the French men and women of my childhood, people long since vanished from my life. Their bodies, so important to me, were once again before my eyes and there came a fresh scent from my past. While taking these photos, I felt close to these Portuguese people, as I felt at home with my Spanish companions near the Métro Pompe in Paris in the 1950s. During the shooting of Nuit de Chien, I travelled from Portugal all the way back to the Paris of my childhood. If I had been able to take photographs as a baby in my cradle, you would see in them something similar to the infinite tenderness of these humble Portuguese farmers.” François-Marie Banier

François-Marie Banier Perdre la Tête NEW EDITION

Losing My Head: when I see a person or a scene, a coming-together of volumes, my eye suddenly gets drawn in, I abandon myself completely to what I’m seeing, I lose all sense of my own reality, I get drunk on the scene which absorbs me, transforms me, transcends me, inundates me with pleasure, with the pleasure of life, which I try to record, if not to hold. Every day, armed with his camera and usually driving his moped, François-Marie Banier leaves his home with no preconceived ideas in mind, simply the desire to discover what the world looks like on this particular day. Preferring the veracity of black and white, he focuses on street scenes in which the appearance and demeanour of faces and figures bear the marks of a particular life trajectory that has the power to touch our emotions — street cleaners who look like mythological warriors, people out for a stroll, passers-by, couples, lonely figures — all have lived through experiences and trials that we can only guess at.

Never think that delays are denials. Hold on; Hold fast; Hold out.

Patience is… genius.*

The books in the following section have all been announced in previous seasons. They have been delayed for a wide array of reasons, mostly quite pedestrian, often banal, but all quite necessary. In every case they were simply not ready to be released. Thomas Jefferson’s truism that “delay is preferable to error” comes to mind but ultimately we must rely on the words of our very own Gerhard Steidl who says that “a book is ready… when it is ready.” These books are now ready.

Robert Adams Gone?

“No one wants to be a prophet, if the job can be avoided. What you want to try to be is a psalmist.” Robert Adams Robert Adams began by photographing suburban landscapes along the edge of the Rocky Mountains. His goal was then, and remains, to acknowledge the disappearance of wilderness but also to discover a basis for affirmation. In the 1980s he went on to revisit semi-rural areas through which he had walked as a boy – landscapes no longer pristine but still notable for their quiet, space and light. The views in this book, none published before, record some of what he found compelling. Robert Adams, born in 1937, came to prominence as part of the photographic movement known as New Topographics. His work has been widely exhibited both in Europe and the United States. His more than thirty publications include The New West, What We Bought, Our Lives and Our Children, and Turning Back. He is a recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship, the Spectrum International Prize for Photography, and the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize.

Paulo Nozolino bone lonely

A man stands in the middle of destruction, feeling lonely to an unbelievable point, bone lonely. He makes deaf images during his blind walks. Dwelling with thoughts about the loss in all conflicts, the feeling that all systems fail and the certainty that nothing lasts forever. He wonders what light shines in loneliness, what sounds come out of a moving body, what can fill the absence. He has no answers. He sees silent panic, he hears reports on people, he smells the mould, he feels the flesh aging and he tastes the dry saliva in his mouth. There seems to be no escape. He has a word pounding inside his head: resist, resist… bone lonely. Paulo Nozolino was born in Lisbon in 1955, where he currently lives and works. He has published several books that include Penumbra (1996), Tuga (1997), Fim (2001) and Far Cry (2005), an anthology of thirty years of work that received the Deutscher Fotobuchpreis. In 2006 he was honoured with the National Award for Photography in Portugal for his life’s work.

Fazal Sheikh Portraits

The portrait is central to Fazal Sheikh’s work. For more than two decades, as he has worked in different communities around the world, the invitation to sit for a portrait has been one of the principle means by which he has established a link with his subjects and been allowed to enter and document their lives. Often these have been people in crisis: displaced from their homes and their countries, at risk from violence, poverty and prejudice. This book takes in the full range of Fazal Sheikh’s work, from his earliest portraits taken in African refugee camps, through long-term projects in Afghanistan and Northern Pakistan, Somalia and Kenya, to more recent work in South America and in India. It considers the role of the portrait within this kind of social enquiry: the balance of its aesthetic and narrative qualities, its capacity for empathy and also for distance; the values of the collaborative portrait, and the moral ambivalence that surrounds this approach to documenting the lives of disadvantaged people within the context of contemporary art. Fazal Sheikh was born in 1965 in New York City. His previous books include A Sense of Common Ground (Scalo 1996), The Victor Weeps (Scalo 1998), A Camel for the Son and Ramadan Moon (International Human Rights Series 2001), Moksha (Steidl 2005), Ladli (Steidl 2007) and The Circle (Steidl 2008), Fazal Sheikh (TF Editores 2009). Professor Eduardo Cadava teaches English and Comparative Literature at Princeton University. His books include Words of Light: Theses on the Photography of History (Princeton UP, 1997), and Emerson and the Climates of History (Stanford UP, 1997).

Philip Brookman (ed.) Helios: Eadweard Muybridge in a Time of Change

Helios: Eadweard Muybridge in a Time of Change offers a unique opportunity to trace the life and complex art of the 19th century photographer. This book places his entire body of work – both artistic and technical – in the context of one of the most transformative periods of American and European history. Published to accompany a retrospective exhibition organized bythe Corcoran Gallery of Art, this catalogue includes essays by Philip Brookman, Marta Braun, Corey Keller, and Rebecca Solnit that investigate a variety of new ways to understand and interpret Muybridge’s art and influences. Born in England, Eadweard J. Muybridge (1830–1904) moved in his early twenties to the United States, where he was soon drawn to the dramatic Western landscape. After a stagecoach accident, during a long convalescence in England, he learned photography. Returning to San Francisco in 1867, he soon earned his reputation photographing both the landscape and urban development of the West. Muybridge is best known for this inventive work and his massive atlas of stop-action motion studies, Animal Locomotion, first published in 1887. Exhibition: April 10 – July 18, 2010 at the Corcoran in Washington, D.C; September 13, 2010 – January 16, 2011 Tate Britain, London; February 26 – June 7, 2011 San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMoMA).

Joel Sternfeld iDubai

As Paris and its shopping arcades were to the 19th Century, Dubai and its wondrous malls may be to the new millennium. The Baudelarian flâneur, is replaced by the phoneur, a wired wanderer who uses the cell phone to text and call and access the internet, all the while snapping digital images on the fly. If the arcades were representative sites of early capitalism, then perhaps the postmodern shopping playgrounds of Dubai are exemplars of advanced capitalism. With this in mind, when Joel Sternfeld visited these malls in 2008, he documented them with the consumer fetish object of the moment – the iPhone. In the process, he achieved a very particular unity of form and content; the object that encapsulates the spirit of an era is used to document that era. The ramifications of a profusion of mobile phone cameras around the globe are numerous. We have already witnessed this phenomenon becoming a platform for news construction with civilian journalism changing the documentation of events. In Dubai, Joel Sternfeld used his iPhone camera to get past mass media images of the Emirate as Disney World on the Persian Gulf, and find a human component. Like the iphone and other hand held devices this book is available in a choice of jacket colours. Ask in your local SteidlBookshop and be the first kid on your block to have them all! A major figure in the world of photography, Joel Sternfeld was born in New York City in 1944. He is the recipient of numerous awards, including two Guggenheim fellowships, a Prix de Rome and the Citibank Photography Award. Sternfeld is the author of eleven books including, Sweet Earth (2006), When it Changed (2007) and Oxbow Archive (2008) published by Steidl. Jonathan Crary is Meyer Schapiro Professor of Modern Art and Theory at Columbia University. He is a founding editor of Zone Books, and has written widely on art, film and contemporary technological culture.

Francis Alÿs Sign Painting Project

The Sign Painting Project came into being between 1993 and 1997 through a collaboration between Francis Alÿs and professional billboard-painters from Mexico City, particularly Rotulistas Juan García, Enrique Huerta and Emilio Rivera. Alÿs brought the billboard-painters some of his small-format oil paintings, asking if they would copy and enlarge these motifs. Today the resulting paintings are scattered throughout the world. This book presents the immense scale and multifaceted motifs of the Sign Painting Project for the first time. Francis Alÿs was born in Antwerp in 1959. Since 1987 he has lived and worked in Mexico City. Alÿs studied at the Institut d’Architecture de Tournai and the Instituto Universitario di Architettura di Venezia. He has been the subject of numerous international exhibitions, most recently at Artangel / National Portrait Gallery, London; The Israel Museum, Jerusalem; Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg / Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona; Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid / Centro nationale per le arti contemporani, Rome; Schaulager, Basel; and the Museum of Modern Art, New York.

Donovan Wylie MAZE

Between 2002 and 2003 Donovan Wylie spent almost a hundred days photographing inside the Maze prison. Through its history of protests, hunger strikes and escapes, this prison, holding both republican and loyalist prisoners, became synonymous with the Northern Ireland conflict. After the Belfast peace agreement in 1998, inmates were gradually released, but the Maze remained open. Wylie was the only photographer granted official and unlimited access to the site, and when the demolition of the prison began, symbolizing the end of the conflict in 2007, he systematically recorded its demise. The photographs which document this period are divided into four sections, each depicting a “layer” of the prison: the internal walls, the various modes of fencing, the H-blocks and, finally, the perimeter walls, which reveal the external landscape. Eventually this once-enclosed space is reintegrated with the outside world. First published in 2004 to critical acclaim, this new edition of Maze comes in three volumes: Maze 2002/03, Maze 2007/08, and The Architecture of Containment. Donovan Wylie was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland in 1971. He is a photographer and filmmaker. In 2001 he won a BAFTA for his film The Train and has had solo exhibitions at The Photographers’ Gallery, London, PhotoEspana, Madrid, and the National Museum of Film, Photography and Television, England. He is a member of Magnum Photos. Exhibition: Belfast Exposed March 25 to May 23, 2009

Daniel Blaufuks Terezín

Theresienstadt or Terezín in the Czech Republic is a fortified town sixty kilometres to the north of Prague. At the Wannsee Conference in January 1942, the Germans chose Theresienstadt as a “Model Ghetto” for Jews over 65 years old, Jewish veterans from the First World War, and known personalities. The Nazis declared the camp a “ghetto under Jewish authority”, appointing a council of elders with a chairman, but under the authority of the SS. In reality the camp was just another staging post on the way to Auschwitz or Birkenau. Due to the presence of numerous interned professors, artists and writers, there were school and cultural activities, such as lectures and concerts. During the life of the ghetto, over two thousand four hundred lectures took place on such varied topics as the Jews of Babylon, the theory of relativity, Alexander the Great and German humour. There was a functioning library with 49,000 books that had been brought from various collections and homes in Germany and different groups performed theatre. There was even a police force, a fire brigade and several other civic services. One prisoner wrote, “Life could seem almost normal here”. Terezín is Daniel Blaufuks’ personal travel and research book on the history of the Nazi concentration camp of Theresienstadt. This book is accompanied by a copy of Blaufuk’s extraordinary film Theresienstadt. Daniel Blaufuks has been working on the relation between photography and literature, since My Tangier (with the writer Paul Bowles). His Collected Short Stories includes several photographic diptychs in a kind of “snapshot prose,” where visual fragments suggest private stories on their way to becoming public. The relation between public and private has been one of the constant interrogations in his work. He has been showing widely and works mainly in photography and video, presenting his work through books, installations and films. His documentary Under Strange Skies was shown at the Lincoln Center in New York. Recent exhibitions include: Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, Lisbon, Palazzo delle Papesse, Siena, LisboaPhoto, Centro Cultural de Belém, Lisbon, Elga Wimmer Gallery, New York, Photoespaña, Madrid, where his book Under Strange Skies received the award for Best Photography Book of the Year in the International Category in 2007. In the same year he received the BES Photo Award for the work Terezín.

Robert Voit New Trees

Robert Voit has discovered a completely new species of plant that he calls “new trees” – cellular phone antennae of steel, fiberglass and plastic, camouflaged as trees. This unusual new life form is now at home all over the world. There are pine trees, palm trees, cypresses, cacti and deciduous trees. Some are in the desert or in newly planted forests, others in fields and parking lots, next to highways and in housing developments. They seek fertile ground near technical facilities; many are surrounded by fences. In the USA, South Africa and throughout Europe, Voit photographed the antenna trees and put them together in an arboretum, a very special botanical garden full of peculiar woods. The viewer of Voit’s photographs will look at the world another way in the future and ask: “What is real and what is illusion?” Robert Voit, born in Erlangen in 1969, lives in Munich. He studied under Gerd Winner at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich and under Thomas Ruff at the Düsseldorf Art Academy. His photographs have been shown at the Fotomuseum and Haus der Kunst in Munich, at the Nuremberg Kunsthalle, and in the Deichtorhallen in Hamburg.

Mikael Olsson Södrakull Frösakull


This book explores the heritage of Bruno Mathsson, one of Swedish modernism’s leading designers, through two of his architectural works. In Frösakull – a house that Mathsson both designed and lived in – Mikael Olsson invaded, colonised and interacted with the remains of the house. In Södrakull, on the other hand – a second house that Mathsson designed and lived in – Olsson acted like a Peeping Tom, sneaking around the exterior of the house with his camera. This unethical method of trespassing a private space reveals something even more unethical, namely the fact that nobody, not even the Bruno Mathsson firm, took care of his property after his death. Frösakull was later sold, fixtures, furniture and other possessions included, while Södrakull was refurbished and turned into a glossy and artificial space. In Södrakull Frösakull Mikael Olsson has created a phenomenological interplay between presence and absence, inner meaning and outer representation, turning the very notion of the human gaze inside out. Mikael Olsson, born in Sweden, 1969, studied at The School of Photography at Gothenburg University and at the Department of Architecture, Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg. He has exhibited widely in Sweden and abroad.

John Gossage Map of Babylon

The Thirty-Two Inch Ruler /

John Gossage, the renowned American photographer and photography book-maker, presents two companion volumes and his first ever books in color. Engaged in a dance, neither book comes first, there is no hierarchy or sequence to the pair of volumes. Gossage is one of the most literary of photographic book authors and in The Thirty-Two Inch Ruler, the narrative, whilst not autobiographical, is about a neighborhood in which he lives; one that is singular in the United States. At the same time provincial and international, it is a neighborhood populated by ambassadorial residences, embassies, and the lavish private homes of those who are in positions of power and influence in Washington. A project he began with the arrival of a new neighbor, the Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, and made over a full year’s cycle of seasons, these are images from the drift of privilege. The streets, cars, homes and yards of this neighborhood are photographed on perfect spring or autumn days, with sparklingly clear blue skies, and flowers or foliage accenting the order. These are photographs about how one might wish the world to be, how beauty might be seen as desire. In the same year Gossage made the Map of Babylon, photographing digitally from Washington, to Germany, to China and places in-between. This look away, to places beyond the immediate and local, is a classic exploration of particulars of the outside world. John Gossage, born New York 1946, now residing in Washington, DC, has always been a photographer. Studying briefly with Lisette Model and Alexey Brodovitch in 1960 to 1961. In the late 1960’s he learned Telecaster guitar from Roy Buchanan and Danny Gatton, later giving up professional music in 1973 and returning to photography. Showing from 1974 through 1990 with Leo Castelli Gallery in New York, then from 1990 on concentrating almost exclusively Map of Babylon

upon publications, he produced 17 different books and boxes on specific bodies of photographic work. This is his first book with Steidl, as well as his first book with color photographs.

Jeanloup Sieff Les Indiscrètes Unpublished Photographs by Jeanloup Sieff

Jeanloup Sieff was the complete photographer. He was gifted in every arena of the medium: fashion and advertising, nude, reportage, portraits and landscape. Sieff claimed to be “superficial and droll,” without ever being very convincing, and left a rich collection of works created from the 1950s until the turn of the 21st century before his demise. He was a prodigiously productive artist and was often overtaken by the speed of the medium and his own success, normally short of the necessary time to delve into his archive. Hence many of the works published in this book have never been seen or previously published. With his characteristic sense of humour and light-hearted approach he wrote: “my pictures are little black and white pebbles that I dropped on my way to adulthood, meant for leading me back to my adolescence.” Jeanloup Sieff was born in 1933 in Paris. His parents were of Polish origin. He died on September 20, 2000 from cancer. As a fashion photographer, he worked for magazines such as Nova, Elle, Vogue, Twen, Jardin des Modes, Harper’s Bazaar, Esquire, Glamour etc. As for advertising photography, one owes him credit for the picture of a naked Yves Saint Laurent publicising his eau de toilette and for the memorable campaigns for Rosy lingerie, and for Carel shoes. He is the author of several books from J’aime la danse (1962) to Faites comme si je n’étais pas là (2000).

Maria Sewcz inter esse Berlin 1985–87 As a young photographer Maria Sewcz created a series of radical photographs of Berlin’s east side. The Reichstag, Rathaus, Alexanderplatz, Thälmann Memorial and the border with the west marked the limits of her urban topography. Made from 1985 to 1987, these bold images capture a cold and irreconcilable rage with the status quo at this period of transition. inter esse is a Berlin tale in which recent German history finds expression. Expressed in dynamic movements through constant changes of perspective, the story has no interest in subordinating one individual’s perception to so-called “historical necessities”. Maria Sewcz, born in 1960 and raised in Northern Germany, submitted the portfolio inter esse as her thesis at the Academy of Visual Arts in Leipzig in 1987.

Jim Goldberg Open See

Open See began life as a Magnum commission for the Greek Olympiad in the summer of 2004. This project tells of the journeys of refugee and immigrant populations who travel from war torn and economically devastated countries, often leaving AIDS ravaged communities or totalitarian regimes to make new homes in Europe. Despite facing seemingly insurmountable difficulties, dreams of freedom and an indomitable will to survive are continual threads that tether migrants and refugees to their history and drive them forward toward a new life. Despite the harsh realities they endure, their stories are replete with hope and heroism. Book 1

This immigrant population, including refugees, asylum seekers, and trafficked peoples, reside in compromised living situations, often on the margins of society. Open See is a body of photographic work that documents these diverse peoples who are natives of such places as Iraq, Somalia, Congo, Ukraine, Albania, Russia, Poland, Nigeria, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Egypt, Bangladesh, Pakistan, China, the Philippines, Sudan, Kenya, Kurdistan, Afghanistan, Bulgaria, Palestine, and Moldavia. While much of this project is specific to the socio-economic landscape of Greece and the plight of refugees who make Greece their new homeland, it speaks to larger issues and raises questions about racism and cultural persecution across the globe. Jim Goldberg, born in 1953, is a Professor of Art at the California College of Arts and Crafts and a member of Magnum Photos. He has been exhibiting for over 30 years and his innovative use of image and text make him a landmark photographer of our times. He began to explore experimental storytelling and the potentials of combining image and text with Rich and Poor, (1977–85). His work is in numerous private and public collections including

Andri Pol Where is Japan

European visions of Japan are dominated by clichés such as the cherry blossom, the temples, the samurai, the geisha, and Zen. But this has more to do with European longings and utopian ideals than with today’s Japan. The photographer Andri Pol has visited the Japanese Islands over many years and he has taken pictures strictly avoiding any such soft-focus clichés. Fascinated and irritated at the same time, Pol casts a sharp eye on the reality of Japan beyond European projections of the Far East. Even though he can’t completely avoid the cherry blossom and the tea rites, he encounters human beings who have learned to live between yesterday and tomorrow – masters of the profane. He finds beauty within the everyday life of modern Japan. Andri Pol, born 1961 in Switzerland, works as a photographer for different international magazines and publishing houses. His works have been widely published.

Roni Horn aka Roni Horn

For more than thirty years, Roni Horn has developed a body of work of concentrated visual power and intellectual rigor. Innovative in diverse mediums, her practice defies easy categorization. Although almost classical in their restraint and beauty, and virtuosic in their use and sensitivity to material, Horn’s pieces incite mental and conceptual engagement. Her subtle explorations of the complex relationship between object and subject have expanded the vocabulary of every medium in which she works. Creating situations in which the mechanisms of perception reveal themselves is one of her great achievements. This catalogue has been produced to accompany the most comprehensive overview of Horn’s work to date. Horn has developed the structure of this two-volume publication. The catalogue volume includes an insightful essay by Briony Fer as well as a plate section of works in the exhibition. The other volume, the subject index, is fully illustrated and includes texts on a variety of topics related to Horn’s work by a variety of prominent artists, critics, curators, and cultural figures. In addition, the subject index also includes Horn’s own writing, which is illuminating and engaging for those with a longstanding interest in her work, as well as for people encountering it for the first time.

Rudolf Herz Lenin on Tour

In 1989 with the fall of the Berlin Wall, the city council in Dresden decided to remove its statue of Lenin, a symbol of the no longer existent Communist regime. The monument was taken down and given to a Swabian stonemason. In the summer of 2004, Rudolf Herz borrowed this enormous torso of Lenin and placed it, along with two other anonymous statues, on the back of a truck and drove them all over Europe. Each evening the truck would stop in a different city where artists, sociologists, cultural scientists, economists and common people on the streets were asked to give their views on Lenin in the twenty-first century: “l show Lenin to my contemporaries. And the 21st century to Lenin. Who will explain it to him?“ This remarkable tour was recorded by a film team and by photographers Reinhard Matz and Irena Wunsch. The resulting images, along with statements from a variety of witnesses form the basis of the Lenin on Tour project, which has taken shape as a documentary film, an exhibition, and now in the form of this book. Rudolf Herz, born in 1954 in Sonthofen, is a conceptual artist concerned with questions of public memory and oblivion. Herz has exhibited widely and received numerous awards. He lives in Munich and Paris.

Jim Dine Hot Dream ( 52 Books ) Jim Dine redefines everything, his life and his art in these fifty-two books Trying to realize the depth of his aesthetic and profane reality, the books are documents of an artistic consciousness, of an intense biography, of personal likes and dislikes, of formal richness and of exploding craftsmanship, of an exceptional imagination. These books invent the context for a new melody for the art of Jim Dine, for all the major byways of this seemingly inexhaustible creativity, which combines dream and reality – it is a composition for all the people who would like to sing a new song, maybe their own song. Dine has reflected authentically on his own identity and through it the identity of reality, nature, art, thoughts, feelings in an extraordinary poetic way: We see a POEM, we read an IMAGE. Hot Dream (52 Books) may be read and regarded as a summary of an unusual life. “This Hot Dream first appeared as an idea 3 years ago. Steidl embraced and blessed the project so I went ahead. I stewed about it for 2 years then I stood around waiting to talk to Gerhard about it then finally I got down to putting the books together. My method, as in all my work, is the use of collage, painting and drawing, and correcting; coupled with my writing and my untouched photographs. The fact of making a book a week and the sensual possibilities i.e. the act of making a union with humans through the smell of the ink on the paper, the feel of the images and words. Hot Dream tells a lot about me, Dine, and book-making.” Jim Dine

Klaus Mettig Don’t Be Left Behind

Klaus Mettig has traveled through numerous countries since 1973 in his search for photographs that tell the stories of people’s lives, cultures and relationships to their histories. This book combines breathtaking panoramas of Asian cities with portraits of their residents and restores to the term “globalization” the complexity which is often painfully absent in political discussions. Klaus Mettig, born in Brandenburg in 1950, attended the Independent Study Program of the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York in 1976–1977 and was awarded the Karl-Schmitt-Rottluff scholarship in 1984. He participated in documenta VII and the Shanghai Biennal, and has had solo exhibitions at the Kunsthalle Dusseldorf, the Van Abbe Museum Eindhoven and the Castello di Rivoli in Turin. Exhibition: Museum Kunst Palast, Dusseldorf, December 2010.

Edition 7L 7L makes only a few books every season. Beautiful books take time to become what they should be. In an age of screens, books have to be better printed and better written than ever. That is a real challenge for publishers and printers today. Beautiful books should have an important place in our lives, more than aesthetic theory. The eye should be attracted by them with keenness as they are the mere appearance of things. This tendency to observe beauty in all kinds of forms in books should never be too widely spread. Books should be beauty and pleasure objectified.

Victoria Brynner (ed.) YUL Brynner: A Photographic Journey

Yul Brynner’s reputation as one of the twentieth century’s most charismatic and versatile actors is irrefutable. But his talent as a photographer has been relatively unknown and unacknowledged. YUL will change that, presenting Brynner’s photographic oeuvre for the first time in a comprehensive and lavish way in book form. Brynner’s subjects are some of the pivotal figures of cinematic and stage history, and his talent lies in capturing these people and particularly actors (those best at disguising their true selves) at ease, both on and off set: Charlton Heston as Moses in The Ten Commandments, Audrey Hepburn in a gondola in Venice, Elizabeth Taylor relaxing poolside. YUL also contains candid shots of Brynner’s family. Comprising a selection made from 8,000 images and press cuttings edited by Brynner’s daughter Victoria Brynner, YUL is divided into four volumes: “Lifestyle”, “Life on Set”, “1956” (the pivotal year of The King and I, The Ten Commandments and Anastasia), and “Man of Style” which contains portraits of Brynner by photographers such as Richard Avedon, Henri Cartier-Bresson and Inge Morath. Published on the twenty-fifth anniversary of Brynner’s death, YUL is a celebration of Brynner’s photographic legacy and a complex portrait of the man himself. Yul Brynner (1920–1985) was an actor, director, musician and photographer. One of Hollywood’s most respected performers, Brynner is best known for his depiction on stage and screen of King Mongkut in The King and I, for which he won both Academy and Tony Awards. Brynner’s other films include The Buccaneer (1958), The Magnificent Seven (1960) and Westworld (1973).

James Welling Light Sources: 1992–2005

“Like much of Welling’s work Light Sources taps into memories and emotions in the viewer, about darkness, strange places, and the wonder of that which attracts us for reasons unknown. It is a trope for the seductions of the quickly glimpsed, the half remembered, the partially understood, qualities that Welling wants to hold up, examine, and admire without piercing the fragile surface of their own fugitive grace.”

Carol Squiers, Artforum, 1998

American artist James Welling creates work which challenges the technical and conceptual bounds of photography. In his abstract photographs of the 1980s he usually employed simple materials, like crumpled aluminum foil, draped fabric and pastry dough. Then in 1992 he began the series Light Sources, an open-ended accumulation of diverse portraits, landscapes and interiors. All these photographs indirectly refer to the process of perception and while many of the objects literally transmit light, the series acknowledges that everything we see reflects light and is also a source of light. James Welling was born in 1951 and raised in Hartford, Connecticut. After studying sculpture at Carnegie-Mellon University from 1969–1971, Welling transferred to the California Institute of the Arts, where he worked primarily in video. In 1978 he moved to New York and began taking abstract photos of aluminum foil. His work has appeared in over sixty solo and group exhibitions, and is currently represented in many public collections, including those at Museum of Modern Art, New York; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; and Whitney Museum of American Art, NY, among others. Welling is the recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship. He has taught at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and at the University of California, Los Angeles. Since 1995 Welling has lived in Los Angeles, where he is area head of photography in the Department of Art at UCLA. Co-published with steidlMACK, London.

Martina Hoogland Ivanow Far Too Close

Far Too Close is a visual meditation on distance, both physical and emotional, of closeness to a subject and remoteness from a place. Applying a dark mesmerizing aesthetic which conveys in her images a heightened presence as real as it is poetic, Martina Hoogland Ivanow interweaves family portraits and interiors of home with landscapes of some of the most remote and far flung locations at the very ends of the Earth. Over seven years she travelled to Siberia, Sakhalin Island north of Japan, Tierra del Fuego on the southern tip of Argentina, and the Kola Peninsula in Russian Lapland. Each of these places has its own dark history and has been the focus of dispute and discontent. Combined with photographs of her own community, a literary tale emerges which shifts from disturbing to familiar and is about the very nature of photography, its capacity to relate history and emotion from afar and nearby. Martina Hoogland Ivanow, born in Stockholm, Sweden in 1973, studied photography in Paris and New York. Her photographs have been featured in Another Magazine, Dazed & Confused, Big magazine, Blindspot and exhibited at Moderna Museet (Stockholm), The Barbican and The Victoria & Albert Museum (London), Brandts Museet for fotokunst (Denmark). She currently divides her time between Stockholm and New York. Co-published with steidlMACK, London.

Colin Gray In Sickness and in Health

Colin Gray began to take photographs of his parents in the 1960s when he was 5 years old. At family occasions, holidays and celebrations Gray would be allowed one shot from the single roll of film in a square box Brownie Twin. Over the next three decades he has accumulated an extensive body of work documenting his parents loving, working, homemaking and playing. In Sickness and in Health forms the final stages of The Parents series. Begun in 2000, it shows his parent’s deterioration and, ultimately, his mothers’ death. The hospital and church visits became more frequent, the ailments more serious, the drugs regime ever more complex. Whilst his father struggled with his new role as a carer, Gray found that his photographs helped make sense of the deterioration and loss he was experiencing. Having reached the age his parents were when he started the project, Gray now sees their history in his own future. Colin Gray, born Hull, England in 1956, studied photography at the Royal College of Art, London, and lives and works in Glasgow. He has exhibited worldwide including shows at Kunsthal, Rotterdam; Encontros da Imagem, Braga, Portugal; House of Photography, Prague; Australian Centre for Photography, Sydney. Gray has appeared in numerous publications. Co-published with steidlMACK, London.

Lise Sarfati Immaculate

Immaculate is a series of photographs of jeunes filles made in the enclosed gardens of private girls’ schools in small towns in California. These Catholic institutions in Alhambra, San Diego, Monterey and Sierra Madre are all embedded in extensive and luxuriant arboretums which fall away into forests and ravines. Lise Sarfati’s photographs brilliantly construct a litany of contradictions and ambiguities concerning the girls’ identities and states of mind. In the context of these elemental settings the girls abandon themselves or, on the contrary, hold back, only to reveal unsettling details: a hand touching a twig, chipped nail varnish, an uncertain gaze. Sarfati’s psychological portraits elucidate the girls’ immaturity and naïvité as they stand at the cusp of womanhood, drawing on the signs of their virginity and their emotional and physical fragility. Lise Sarfati lives and works between Paris and the United States. Her work has been widely exhibited and can be found in numerous prestigious collections. Lise Sarfati joined Magnum Photos in 1997 and became a full Member in 2001. She was awarded grants from both the Fiacre and Villa Medici. Sarfati also received the Prix Niépce in Paris and the Infinity Award from the ICP in New York for her work. Co-published with steidlMACK, London.

Larry Sultan Katherine Avenue

This book brings together three of Larry Sultan’s best known series: “Pictures from Home”, “The Valley” and “Homeland”, all mainly made in the San Fernando Valley, California, where the artist grew up. “Pictures from Home“ is a survey of his parents life over the course of a long period; “The Valley“ deals with the Californian pornographic industry which operates out of the suburbs of the region; and “Homeland“, his late series of landscapes which appear idyllic at first sight but which are fractured by the troubling presence of Mexican day-labourers. In all of his photographs Sultan is dealing with the private, political and social aspects of the “american dream” – a dream he locates somewhere between utopia and dystopia. This publication accompanies an exhibition at the kestnergesellschaft, Hannover. Larry Sultan (1946–2009) taught photography from 1978 and was a professor at the California College of Arts and Crafts from 1989. He received several National Endowments for the Arts and had solo exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, Musée de l’Elysée, Lausanne, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris.

Peter Sekaer Signs of Life

Peter Sekaer (1901-50) emerged as an artist in the company of Ben Shahn, Berenice Abbott, and Walker Evans. This book intends to show how he stepped from their benign shadows to build his own distinctive style. It is the first monograph to show the full range of his accomplishments. Sekaer’s early work combines dispassionate images with others that show his concern and intuitive grasp of the human condition. Many of his most memorable photographs were made while fulfilling mundane assignments for various government agencies. Sekaer had none of the reformer’s passion found in the works of Jacob Riis or Lewis Hine. His stance was more that of the artist/anthropologist, who delighted in recording the artifacts and gestures that defined American society in the 1930s. John T. Hill is a photographer, designer, and formerly Director of Graduate Studies in Photography at Yale University. He first became attracted to Sekaer’s work in his capacity as executor of the Walker Evans estate. He is co-author of Walker Evans: The Hungry Eye and author of Walker Evans: Lyric Documentary. Current projects include volumes on the works of Herbert Matter and Norman Ives. Julian Cox is curator of photography at the High Museum of Art, Atlanta. His recent publications include The Portrait Unbound: Photographs by Robert Weingarten (2010), Road to Freedom: Photographs of the Civil Rights Movement, 1956-1968 (2008) and Harry Callahan: Eleanor (2007). Christina Sekaer, is the younger daughter of Peter Sekaer. In addition to her work as a psychiatrist, she is active as a photographer and painter. She lives in Dobbs Ferry, New York.

Ernest Cole The Photographer

This book will for the first time enable Ernest Cole to be seen in the perspective of international photography where he surely deserves an honoured place, not simply for his remarkable courage and determination in the face of state oppression but for the perceptiveness of his seeing eye and his ability to put what he saw into photographs of remarkable rigour, subtlety and elegance. These qualities were often subordinated to the need for the strongest possible anti-apartheid statement in his acclaimed book House of Bondage, published in 1967. Many of the photographs have never been published before and others, which were cropped in the book for their maximum political effect, will now be seen un-cropped for the first time. Ernest Cole the Photographer accompanies an exhibition with the same title, produced by the Hasselblad Foundation. Ernest Cole, born 1940 in Eersterust, South Africa, started working as an assistant at Drum magazine in 1958. As a freelance photographer he began his seminal essay on what it meant to be black under apartheid in 1959. In 1966 he left his country with the dream of making a book that he knew was impossible to do in South Africa. House of Bondage, published in 1967, was immediately banned in South Africa, and so was he. He died in exile, in New York in 1990. Co-published with Hasselblad Foundation, Gothenburg. Exhibitions: Johannesburg Art Gallery, September 19 2010 till the end of the year; South African National Gallery, Cape Town, early 2011.

SteidlKasher Andy Warhol Unexposed Exposures

Starting in 1976, Andy Warhol shot several rolls of film every week and selected images for his book Andy Warhol’s Exposures, published in 1979. He had intended to title it Social Diseases but his concept was heavily watered down by his publishers at the time and many of the selected images were removed. This book presents the previously David Johansen and Lou Reed, 1978

Diana Ross, 1978

unpublished and unexhibited photographs, over 70 unique vintage black and white photographic prints, that Warhol originally selected for his book. It has been edited and introduced by Bob Colacello, who was also executive editor of the original book. “There is a sense of intimacy as well as of voyeurism, of funny-looking, insecure, wistful Andy, through flattery and attentiveness, trying to connect. Yet, because he was not just any photographer but a famous artist, a star, there is often a sense that the looking is being done at the man with the camera as well as by him. In some cases, the subjects are clearly performing for their fellow luminary, or close friend, or boss. As spontaneous as these images may seem, they are intrinsically staged, with Warhol himself as both chronicler and catalyst of the moments he is documenting. And what moments they are! Only Andy could get David Hockney in extra-brief running shorts, or Susan Sontag batting her eyelashes across a fancy restaurant table at Gloria Vanderbilt, or Halston’s Venezuelan window dresser and lover, Victor Hugo, sitting under Goya’s Red Boy in Kitty Miller’s Park Avenue parlor… ” Bob Colacello

Where Three Dreams Cross 150 Years of Photography from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh

Histories of photography, as presented through books or exhibitions in the twentieth century, have been dominated by Europe and America. This publication and the exhibition it accompanies, articulate the untold story of an equally significant history, as rich and as formally innovative, yet embedded in the culture and politics of South Asia. Where Three Dreams Cross traces the characteristics of contemporary photography through its historical precedents, revealing the roots of the medium’s development over the past 150 years. Its starting point is the crucial moment when the power to hold a camera, frame and capture images was no longer exclusively the preserve of colonial or European photographers. Both the major upheavals of politics and technology and the quotidian events of family, culture and ritual have been captured through the lens of some 80 artists. Their work also demonstrates formal experimentation and aesthetic lines of enquiry that are indigenous yet of universal interest. With essays by Sabeena Gadihoke, Geeta Kapur and Christopher Pinney, among others. Co-published with Whitechapel Gallery, London and Fotomuseum Winterthur. Exhibition: Fotomuseum Winterthur, June 12 to August 22, 2010

Bodo von Dewitz (ed.) La Bohème Artists in the 19th and 20th century photography

Henry Murger described within his novel La Bohème for the first time in history the life and struggle of poor artists within bourgeois society. This was the beginning of the romantic myth of the independent, anarchistic spirit of creative artists. In that context photography played an important role, used by the artists for self-exposure and to document their working conditions and leisure. The bohemian legend persists in literature, on stage and film, as well as in the attitudes of numerous artists of our own time. This book assembles daguerreotypes and photographs of painters, sculptures, writers and actors, portraits and group pictures, pictures of studio interiors and parties from the late Biedermeier over the Belle Epoche up to the 1920th. Besides the pictures from famous photographers as Nadar, Alois Löcherer, Wilkie Wynfield, J.M. Cameron, August Sander and Lux Feininger, the book contains numerous unusual pictures of unknown “masters”. Co-published with Museum Ludwig, Köln.

STEIDL PACE/MACGILL Jocelyn Lee Nowhere but Here

Whether her subjects are landscapes, portraits or nudes, Jocelyn Lee’s photographs are about beauty and its poignant fragility. The landscapes are not spectacular vistas but quiet places that seem oddly familiar. Sometimes glowing with summer’s light and sometimes covered with snow, they endure through all the seasons of the year. Lee has also assembled a gallery of people, each of whom is remarkable although none of them is famous. She endows every person with a vivid yet dignified presence. Her portraits are full of implicit stories, suggested by bodies and faces, and made all the more compelling by the fact that her sitters seem absorbed in their own memories and dreams. With a clear and compassionate eye, Jocelyn Lee encourages us to think about eternal issues such as youth and age, our connections with one another, our relationship with nature, and the place – or places – we call home. She states: “The physical landscape serves as a backdrop on which the human drama unfolds. The photographs allude to the fragility of the human presence in the world. These portraits are a way to look at particular people and the human body as a part of nature, evolving and expressing their identity and place in life’s cycles.” Jocely Lee is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship (2001) and has exhibited her work since 1992. Her photographs can be found in major museum collections around the world. Lee lives and works in Brooklyn, New York and Cape Elizabeth, Maine. Co-published with Pace/MacGill Gallery, New York.

STEIDL PACE/MACGILL JoAnn Verburg Interruptions

JoAnn Verburg has photographed the narrow streets and passageways of the historic center of Spoleto, Italy, an ancient Umbrian city where she lives part-time. The images depict angled building facades, receding courtyards and transitory corridors that emphasize the subjectivity of perception and observation through calculated shifts in her camera’s focus and perspective. In contrast, Verburg’s tightly cropped, close-ups of Spoleto’s residents are timeless yet grounded compositions. These portraits remain elusive and at the margins of a specific place and time, however, with no immediate reference to their surroundings at-large. When viewed together, the cityscapes become backdrops into which the photographed individuals could wander at any time. Writing about Verburg’s work, distinguished art historian Walter Liedtke notes: “Verburg has learned that all observation, including the seemingly most objective, is always subjective, selective, slanted, focused, blurred, disconnected, or somehow interrupted.” JoAnn Verburg is the recipient of numerous honors including a Guggenheim Fellowship (1986), multiple artist fellowships from the Bush Foundation (1983, 1993) and the McKnight Foundation (1994, 2004), and a Rockefeller Foundation Residency at the Bellagio Conference and Study Center, Bellagio, Italy (1998). Verburg has exhibited her work extensively in the United States and abroad. Most recently, The Museum of Modern Art, New York mounted “Present Tense”, a mid-career retrospective that traveled to the Walker Art Center (2007–2008). Co-published with Pace/MacGill Gallery, New York.

STEIDL PACE/MACGILL Harry Callahan Seven Collages

“It might be said that the subject of Callahan’s photographs is photography, and that his world exists essentially as a formal problem.” John Szarkowski Harry Callahan was one of the most respected and influential American photographers of the modern era. He was a master of traditional genres such as portraiture, landscape, architecture and nature studies, but also experimented with new ways of using the medium. One of Callahan’s favorite themes was the repeating pattern, whether in multiple reeds reflected on a lake‘s surface or the rows of windows on a building‘s facade. While lesser known than some of his other work, Callahan’s collages demonstrate an intense interest in and profound understanding of the process of photographic seeing. Callahan knew that every photograph is to some extent a fragment taken from a larger reality. His collages are rigorous yet playful exploration of the relation of a part to its whole. The images have a unique dynamism, like that of mosaics, because they continuously shift the viewer’s attention back and forth between the individual fragments and the overall pattern. The images exemplify Callahan’s unassuming virtuosity. Harry Callahan (1912–1999), born in Detroit, began his career as an amateur photographer. In 1938 he joined Chrysler’s Camera Club and two years later became a member of Detroit’s Photo Guild. After attending a lecture and workshop by Ansel Adams in 1941, and a meeting with Alfred Stieglitz in 1942, Callahan decided to devote his energies to photography. In 1946 he followed an invitation by László Moholy-Nagy to teach at Chicago’s Institute of Design. He left in 1961 to chair the photography department at the Rhode Island School of Design. Callahan held that position until 1973 and retired from teaching altogether four years later. Harry Callahan was the recipient of numerous distinctions, and he was chosen to represent the United States at the 1978 Venice Biennial, the first photographer to be so honoured. Since his first one-person show in 1947, Callahan’s work has been the subject of over 60 solo and group exhibitions. Co-published with Pace/MacGill Gallery, New York.

The Mexican Suitcase

Steidl / International Center of Photography

Cynthia Young (ed.) The Mexican Suitcase The Legendary Spanish Civil War Negatives of Robert Capa, Gerda Taro, and David Seymour

Sometimes, even in the world of photography, miracles happen. On 19 December 2007, three battered, commonplace cardboard boxes arrived at the International Center of Photography in New York. Within these boxes – the so-called Mexican Suitcase – was a treasure trove of photographic history believed lost since World War II: the legendary Spanish Civil War negatives of Robert Capa, Gerda Taro, and David Seymour (known as “Chim”). The Mexican Suitcase contained 126 rolls of film, mostly shot between May 1936 and spring 1939, that are an inestimable record of innovative war photography and of a definitive episode in Spanish history. The photographs include Capa’s images of the Battle of Rio Segre, Chim’s famous image of a woman nursing a baby at a land reform meeting in Estremadura, and Taro’s last photos at the Battle of Brunete where she was killed in 1937. The story of the Mexican Suitcase itself is as fascinating as the photographs it contained. Carried by Capa’s studio manager from Paris to Bordeaux by bicycle in 1939, it came into the possession of General Francisco Aguilar González, the Mexican ambassador to the Vichy government in 1941–42, and found its way to Mexico City. Decades later the suitcase was discovered among González’s belongings and in 2007 was given to ICP, founded by Robert Capa’s brother Cornell Capa and home of the Capa and Taro archives as well as a large Chim collection. In 1979, Cornell Capa had implored the public to come forward with information about the Mexican Suitcase which he had spent years looking for: “Anyone who has information regarding the suitcase should contact me and will be blessed in advance.” This landmark two-volume publication, which accompanies a major exhibition at ICP and reproduces all 4,500 negatives from the suitcase, embodies the blessing Capa spoke of and presents the miraculous contents of the suitcase to the public for the first time. Co-published with International Center of Photography, New York. Exhibition: ICP, New York, September 2010.

Miroslav Tichý

Few stories in the history of photography are as astonishing and compelling as that of the octogenarian Czech photographer Miroslav Tichý. With crude homemade cameras fashioned out of cardboard and duct tape, Tichý took several thousand pictures of the women of his Moravian hometown of Kyjov throughout the 1960s and ’70s. These pictures of women going about their daily business are at once banal and extraordinary, transforming the ordinary moments of work and leisure into small epiphanies. Blurred and off-kilter, his photographs have a striking contemporaneity, resembling the early paintings of Gerhard Richter or the photographs of Sigmar Polke. Printed imperfectly and deliberately battered, they evince a surprisingly retrograde or even antimodernist feeling, which, in the context of the Cold War atmosphere of provincial Czechoslovakia, just before and after the liberalizing moment of the Prague Spring (1968), undoubtedly constituted a kind of oblique political provocation, a nose-thumbing response to the progressive realist perfectionism of official Soviet culture. After studying at the Academy of Arts in Prague, Miroslav Tichý (born 1926) withdrew to a life in isolation in his hometown of Kyjov, Moravia, Czech Republic. In the late 1950s, he quit painting and became a distinctive Diogeneslike figure, in part as a political response to the social repressions of Czech communism. It is only in the past five years that his intensely private work has gained international public attention. Co-published with International Center of Photography, New York.

Jasper, Texas: The Community Photographs of Alonzo Jordan

Alonzo Jordan worked for forty years as a photographer in Jasper, Texas, a small town that was little known until the brutal murder there of a forty-nine-year-old African American named James Byrd by three white males on June 7, 1998. While Jordan died in 1984, his photographs offer new insight into the social and cultural milieu in which Byrd grew up and spent his entire life, but perhaps, more enduringly, illuminate the intrinsic power of the image to shape perception. Jordan’s photographs are windows into an unseen world. A barber by trade, he took up photography to fill what he perceived as a need in his community. He understood the ways the photographic image could imbue its subject with a greater sense of meaning and bolster self-esteem. Historian Alan Governar has been recovering and documenting the work of African American photographers for more than a decade. Working with Jordan’s widow, he has preserved the thousands of negatives and prints that Jordan produced over the course of his career. Jasper, Texas, which accompanies an exhibition at the International Center of Photography, presents a selection of Jordan’s work, documenting the everyday life of several generations of Jasper’s African American residents. Co-published with International Center of Photography, New York.

J.D. ‘Okhai Ojeikere, Untitled (Onile Gogoro Or Akaba), 1975

works of widely noted as well as exciting new African and Asian artists, which makes it one of the most comprehensive collections of African photography worldwide. These extensive holdings are contextualized and complemented by historically significant contributions to the art of photography mainly from Germany and the United States, which expand the understanding, conception and history of the medium. The exhibitions and their curators at The Walther Collection will change once a year. Each year, based on a different curatorial emphasis, the collection will be examined and new constellations of the holdings and the new acquisitions will be presented. The Walther Collection will present in the inaugural exhibition a series of four projects in the nine galleries of its three buildings under the curatorial direction of Okwui Enwezor. It will integrate the work of three generations of African artists and photographers and a selection of the work of classical German photographers: Seydou Keïta (Mali), Malick Sidibé (Mali), J.D. ’Okhai Ojeikere (Nigeria), Rotimi Fani-Kayode (Nigeria), Santu Mofokeng (South Africa), as well as August Sander and Bernd and Hilla Becher (Germany). The exhibition series will centre on the issues of portraiture, identity, body, sexuality and performance. In total 230 works of 31 artists from 13 nations, among them South Africa, Nigeria, Kenya, Ethiopia, Mali, Benin, Cameroon and Senegal, are presented.

The Hasselblad Award in Photography 2010 Sophie Calle

The Hasselblad award is an international photography award. Since 1980 it has been presented annually, with the exception of the year of Erna Hasselblad’s death, 1983. The Hasselblad Foundation International Award in Photography is recognized as one of the most important prizes in the world today. The Hasselblad award is granted to “a photographer recognized for major achievements”. This may be an individual who has made a pioneering achievement in photography, who has had a decisive impact on younger generations of photographers, or who has implemented one or more internationally significant photographic projects. French artist Sophie Calle from Paris has been selected as the 30th winner of the Hasselblad Foundation International Award in Photography. The award will be presented to Sophie Calle on Saturday 30 October 2010 at a ceremony at the Göteborg City Theatre. In conjunction with the award ceremony, an exhibition of works by the award winner opens at the Hasselblad Center, and a book is released. This year, as last three years, a book will be produced as a co-operation between the Hasselblad Foundation and Steidl Verlag. The book contains Sophie Calle’s series True Stories, which captures important events of her life. The Foundation’s citation regarding the decision to award the 2010 prize to Sophie Calle is as follows: “For more than three decades, Sophie Calle has been questioning and challenging the relationship between text and photography, private and public personae, truth and fiction, in a groundbreaking, utterly original way. Her conceptually oriented work depicts human vulnerability and examines the interrelationship between identity and intimacy as well as the construction of official history. It evokes narrative, affect and emotion in ways that at the same time touch the viewer deeply and makes her reflect on the possibilities as well as limits of photography. Her contribution to the understanding of the medium of photography has inspired younger generations of artists.” This year’s award committee, which submitted its proposal to the Foundation’s board of directors, consisted of: Claude W. Sui (chair), Curator and Head of the Forum of International Photography of the Reiss-Engelhorn Museums, Mannheim, Germany, Ariella Azoulay, Teaching Contemporary Philosophy and Visual Culture, Hermeneutics and Cultural Studies Program, Bar Ilan University, Ramat Gan, Israel, Vladimir Birgus, Curator, Historian of Photography, Professor and Head of the Institute of Creative Photography of the Silesian University in Opava, Prague, Czech Republic, Sergio Mah, Professor at University Nova of Lisbon, Portugal and the current Artistic Director of Photoespaña, Mette Sandbye, Associate Professor at Copenhagen University (Department of Art and Cultural Studies), Art Critic at Weekendavisen, Denmark.

Sophie Calle True Stories Hasselblad Award 2010

Sophie Calle (born in 1953 in Paris, living in Malakoff) is a writer, conceptual artist, photographer and movie director, but always with the medium of photography as the core of her work. She has published more than fifteen books and has exhibited extensively since the mid 1980s. Most often, her photographs are combined with texts that have the character of either a personal diary, a documentary style or quotations from interviews.

Some nights you can’t put into words. I spent the night of October 5, 2002 in a room set up for me at the top of the Eiffel Tower. In bed. Between white sheets, listening to the strangers who took turns at my bedside. Tell me a story so I won’t fall asleep. Maximum length: 5 minutes. Longer if thrilling. No story, no visit. If your story sends me to sleep, please leave quietly and ask the guard to wake me… Hundreds turned up. Some nights you can’t describe. I came back down in the early morning. A message was flashing on each pillar: Sophie Calle, end of sleepless night, 7:00 a.m. As if to confirm that I hadn’t dreamt it all. I asked for the moon and I got it: I SLEPT AT THE TOP OF THE EIFFEL TOWER. Since then, I keep an eye out for it, and if I glimpse it along some street, I say hello. Give it a fond look. Up there, 1,014 feet above ground, it’s a bit like home.

The Second Museum of Our Wishes

“Instead of 100 per cent men, 100 per cent women” was the motto in a debate article Lars Nittve, Director of Moderna Museet, wrote three years ago, when he appealed for the aid of the government and “all the friends, donors and sponsors of Moderna Museet” so that even Moderna Museet’s collection of older art in the future can reflect an art history that includes the great women artists of the 20th century. The response was magnificent. The collection has been enhanced with a total of 24 works by 13 artists. The majority of these works have been exhibited in the permanent exhibition since they were acquired and have thus not only markedly changed the statistic gender balance in the collection that meets visitors to the museum, but also the art histories that the museum conveys. The title refers to an exhibition at Moderna Museet in 1963, when former Director Pontus Hultén managed to pursuade the government to allocate, what was at the time, a considerable sum for purchasing many of the works that are now key works in the collection by male artists like Salvador Dalí, René Magritte, Joan Miró, Piet Mondrian and Pablo Picasso.

Andrei Nakov Black and White A Suprematist Composition of 1915 by Kazimir Malevich The extraordinary suprematist painting Black and White, A Suprematist Composition of 1915 by Kazimir Malevich was one of the most radical paintings of its day: a geometric abstraction without reference to external reality. It was donated to Moderna Museet in February 2004 and to celebrate its fiftieth anniversary the museum commissioned the renowned Malevich scholar, Dr. Andrei Nakov, to produce this study devoted entirely to this significant addition to its collection. Kazimir Malevich (1878–1935) was a Russian avant-garde painter and art theoretician. A pioneer of geometric abstract art, he was the founder and leading artist of the Suprematist movement. Dr. Andrei Nakov, born 1941 in Sofia, Bulgaria, lives and works in Paris. The author of numerous works on Malevich, including Malevitch écrits (1975) and Kazimir Malewicz: Catalogue raisonné (2002), he has also published numerous monographs and exhibition catalogues on Russian non-objective art, Dada and Constructivism and many works on Western modern art. Co-published with Moderna Museet, Stockholm.

Dan Flavin Series and Progressions

This monograph is published on the occasion of Dan Flavin: Series and Progressions, the first exhibition of the artist’s work at David Zwirner since the gallery announced its representation of the Estate of Dan Flavin. This publication will examine Flavin’s use of progressions and serial structures, ideas that were central to the artist’s practice throughout his career. Flavin has been credited (by Mel Bochner) with being “one of the first artists to make use of a basically progressional procedure”, and the systematic arrangement of colour and light was an aspect of his work that not only led to it being characterized as Minimal art but which moreover influenced Conceptual artistic practices. The catalogue will feature a selection of exemplary work by the artist, ranging in date from 1963 to 1990. The first major monograph on Flavin’s work since the 2004 exhibition catalogue published on the occasion of the artist’s travelling retrospective (organized in 2004 by the Dia Art Foundation in association with the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., and the Estate of Dan Flavin), Dan Flavin: Series and Progressions will include over 50 full-colour plates, in addition to a comprehensive selection of installation views and archival photographs and documents. Also included will be newly-commissioned texts on the artist’s work by noted Flavin scholar Tiffany Bell (who authored the artist’s catalogue raisonné), and by art historians Anne Rorimer and Richard Shiff, and an interview with Dan Graham. Additionally, a detailed illustrated chronology will document exhibitions of Flavin’s work, covering the years 2004–2010. Co-published with David Zwirner, New York.

Primary Atmospheres Works from California 1960–1970

This fully-illustrated catalogue, featuring an essay by noted critic David Hickey, documents the exhibition Primary Atmospheres: Works from California 1960–1970, on view at David Zwirner in January 2010. The exhibition presented to the New York public a long-overdue survey of the particular kind of minimal work that was made in and around Los Angeles during that decade, work which differentiated itself in its emphasis on surface, synthetic materials, industrial processes, and perception. Often referred to under the umbrella term “Light and Space,” the artists and artwork included in this exhibition and catalogue present a more inclusive overview of the ground-breaking and diverse art practices that flourished in California in the 1960s, including rarely seen works by Peter Alexander, Larry Bell, Laddie John Dill, Robert Irwin, Craig Kauffman, John McCracken, Helen Pashgian, James Turrell, De Wain Valentine, and Doug Wheeler. Co-published with David Zwirner, New York.

Raoul De Keyser Terminus: Drawings (1979–1982) and Recent Paintings

This book documents the artist’s 2009 exhibition at David Zwirner in New York. Featured are 50 works, which make up two complementary bodies of work: recent paintings (most from 2008 to 2009) and drawings (created from 1979 to 1982 made on different types of paper and in diverse media, including pencil, ink, watercolour, acrylic, and oil chalk). Modest in size, his spare works have a special intimacy that derives from the physical characteristics of the medium itself, as well as the tension created between plane and depth, figure and ground. Born in 1930 in Deinze, Belgium (where he still lives), De Keyser is one of Europe’s leading painters, yet only over the past two decades has he received much-deserved attention outside his native land. Like many European artists to come of age after World War II, De Keyser’s career began tacitly negotiating developments in American high modernism, from abstract expressionism through minimalism. He was included in the 2007 Venice Biennale, curated by Robert Storr, and from 2004 to 2005, he was the subject of a major solo retrospective exhibition at Whitechapel Art Gallery, which traveled to Musée de Rochechouart, De Pont Museum for Contemporary Art, Museu Serralves, and Kunstverein St. Gallen Kunstmuseum. Co-published with David Zwirner, New York.

Ten Years

In 2000, David Zwirner and Iwan Wirth opened Zwirner & Wirth, a gallery on the Upper East Side of Manhattan which they jointly operated for roughly a decade. Zwirner & Wirth differed from their respective primary market galleries (David Zwirner, New York and Hauser & Wirth, London and Zurich) in its focus on private sales in the secondary market and the development of a historically-researched exhibitions and publications program devoted to the work of modern and contemporary masters. The ten-year collaboration yielded a series of extraordinary, critically acclaimed exhibitions, including Gerhard Richter: Early Paintings (2000); Bruce Nauman (2001); Martin Kippenberger (2002); Cy Twombly: Letter of Resignation (2002/2003); Fred Sandback (2004, 2006/2007, and 2009); Marlene Dumas (2005); Claes Oldenburg: Early Work (2005); David Hammons (2006); Joseph Beuys: Sculpture and Drawing (2007); and Dan Flavin: the 1964 Green Gallery exhibition (2008). Zwirner & Wirth Ten Years will commemorate the history of the gallery, documenting the exhibitions the two gallerists have organized together over the past decade. Filled with color plates of individual artworks and archival installation views of exhibitions, this publication will present outstanding examples of Modern and Contemporary artistic practices, featuring Pop, Minimalism, Conceptual Art, and other key movements in the history of 20th Century art by artists as varied as Alice Neel, René Magritte, Marcel Duchamp, Lucio Fontana, Piero Manzoni, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Sigmar Polke, Gerhard Richter, Franz West, Georg Baselitz, Lee Bontecou, Donald Judd, Eva Hesse, Sol LeWitt, Gordon Matta-Clark, Blinky Palermo, and Richard Serra, among others. Co-published with Zwirner&Wirth, New York.

Guy Bourdin In Between edited by Shelly Verthime

Guy Bourdin’s vivid, narrative-infused work placed him at the vanguard of fashion photography for a career that spanned four decades. In Between demonstrates Guy Bourdin’s unique conceptual and formal engagement with the double-page spread as an art form in itself. This concept appeared in his first published image for French Vogue (1955), a photograph of a model with an Haute Couture Dior hat captured alongside an array of butchered cow heads. This visual, a signature piece emblematic of the classic elements of Guy Bourdin’s entire oeuvre, stands firmly as one of the most daring fashion images of the 20th century. Guy Bourdin’s ‘double page spread’ became a landmark in the history of advertising photography. His compositions gave new form to ideas about product-illustration creating independently arresting images that invited the reader to participate or witness. Guy Bourdin was both the narrator of a fantastic ‘mise en scene’ as well as the choreographer of the magazine page, garnering all the more attention for his advertising clients such as Charles Jourdan. With 300 images, In Between re-assembles many of the original image layouts as they were published in magazines such as French Vogue, British Vogue, Vogue Italy, Harper’s Bazaar, Linea Italiana and The Best, offering a new and illuminating critical context to the creative process. Guy Bourdin tailored his compositions to the constraints of the printed page both conceptually and graphically, and the mirror motif so central in his work finds its formal counterpart in the doubleness of the magazine spread. Layout and design become powerful metaphors for the photographic medium, engaging the eye and with it, the mind. Published by Steidldangin, In Between was conceived and edited by Shelly Verthime, whose unflagging devotion and nearly 10 years of research has resulted in an unparalleled grasp of the photographer’s oeuvre. The monograph is introduced by Charlie Scheips, whose knowledge and passion for art, fashion and photography as well as the history of magazine publishing, brings a new perspective to this enduring body of work. Guy Bourdin (1928–1991) was born in Paris. A painter his entire life and a self-taught photographer, he exhibited his first photographs at Galerie 29 in 1952. His work has been exhibited in the most prestigious museums, such as The Victoria & Albert Museum, the Jeu de Paume, The National Art Museum of China, The Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography and The Moscow House of Photography.

Jean Pigozzi Catalogue Déraisonné

International man of business and flaneur Jean Pigozzi has spent the better part of the past three decades cultivating a frank and humorous taxonomy of the world around him. The camera is an extension and defining element of his identity wherever he goes, and with it Pigozzi creates an unusual brand of high-society portraiture that speaks to his penchant for celebrating life rather than exposing celebrity secrets. As the fourth monograph of his work, Catalogue Déraisonné is a thoughtfully irreverent review of his recent photographic finds. This compact volume resonates with a cast of eccentric, occasionally glamorous characters caught in the off-the-cuff arrangements of reportage. Constantly on the move, Pigozzi is marked by his dual status as insider and outsider, and he grants us an in-depth look at an inaccessible world. The infamous Pigozzi & Co. series that began in the 70s – which turned the typical conception of the outsider paparazzo on its head by including the artist alongside his subjects – has given way to candid portraiture and quieter moments observed out of the limelight. These images recall the golden era of 1930’s and 40’s society portraiture, when photographers were the seeing eyes of the cultural elite. Catalogue Déraisonné shares in this tradition, part personal diary but also cultural archive. With each candid image, we come to understand Pigozzi’s obsessive need to classify the people and places in his life. This publication is part of his effort to catalogue each moment as he lives it, his most recent contribution to a growing repository of collective memory. Jean Pigozzi was born in Italy in 1952 and began photographing in the 1960s. An avid contemporary art lover and subsequent collector, he currently owns the largest African contemporary art collection in the world. His own work was first exhibited in 1974 at the Musée d’Art Moderne in Paris. Last year, the Helmut Newton Foundation in Berlin exhibited his images under the title “Pigozzi and the Paparazzi.”
