Uri Gershuni - The Blue Hour


The Green Box 2014 ISBN 9783941644724 Acqn 24111
Hb 17x23cm 260pp 255ills 31.95
"In the blue hour, Uri Gershuni wanders through the English village of Lacock, in the rural county
of Wiltshire, which was home in the nineteenth century to the inventor of photography William
Henry Fox Talbot, a countryside gentleman and pioneer of photography. []
Gershunis trip to the village is not a first trip, nor indeed is it properly described as a trip. First,
this is not Gershunis first visit to Lacock, but a return visit. He first visited the village three years
ago in search of the origins of photography. This time Uri Gershuni finds a mode of movement in
his non-movement, and this possibility, it turns out, opens up before him when he sits facing the
computer screen, through which he may once again visit the village, at least virtually. []
Google Maps: a single stroke of the keyboard produces a map of the village; drag Pegman over
from the left-hand corner into the map, and youre there, in Street View, on the road leading into
the village, tailing a speeding white car; then the road clears, someone is running by the side of
the road, there are tall trees, you pass the runner, you can look up at the tree tops[]" Excerpts
from Hagi Kenaan's text, which accompanies the work.
The Blue Hour describes a journey in 255 images not only through Talbots village, but also into
the depths and layers of photographic language. The images taken from Google Street View,
turned black&white, are arranged neatly one image per page. This classical display creates a
contrast to the photographies which exhibit all traces of their technical creation and contributes to
the books ageless look-and-feel.

Julian Charriere Polygon


The Green Box 2014 ISBN 9783941644755 Acqn 24390
Hb 23x34cm 80pp 36ills 24
Polygon is a series of photographs shot at the Semipalatinsk nuclear test site in Kazakhstan. The
photographs are made on analogue medium format film, and exposed to radiation before their
development. Thus they both depict the site of nuclear radiation and bear the actual trace of
radioactivity's effect. Charrires journey to the Polygon was inspired by J.G. Ballards short story
The Terminal Beach. It oscillates between art, science and fiction and brings us to one of the
most remote and inaccessible spheres to the beginning of the nuclear age. It is a mystic place
a nuclear space antithetic to human life, and showing the dystopic aesthetics of a future
archaeology.
This publication accompanies the exhibition 'Somewhere Julian Charrire' at Rudolf-ScharpfGallery, the project gallery of the Wilhelm-Hack-Museum. The exhibition is sponsored by the
Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia. Julian Charrire: Polygon is edited by the Wilhelm-HackMuseum and contains an introduction by Ren Zechlin and a contribution by Jana Franze.

Between the diversification of media and digitalisation, the role of the photograph and its
interpretation has dramatically changed in recent years. As a result, photographers are now

Jason Langer - Twenty Years


Radius Books 2014 ISBN 9781934435786 Acqn 23910
Hb 31x30cm 172pp 100col ills 38.50
Jason Langer's Twenty Years pursues a solitary journey through the nocturnal streets and dimly
lit rooms of a dream like world. Spanning 20 years of his career, this aptly titled book is the first
survey of Langer's work. Included are many previously unpublished images, surrealist
experimentation and figure studies, as well as his singular investigation of the city of Berlin.
Langer's photographic language has been variously described as cinematic and poetic, haunting
and romantic. Best known for his noir visions of contemporary urban life, Langer has
photographed not only some of the world's great cities, but intimate scenes as well, ranging from
male and female nudes to inanimate objects captured in moments of lifelike feeling. Whatever
their subject, his carefully crafted images, rich with lush, black tones, exude an air of vintage,
timeless mystery --"as much Hopper and Raymond Chandler as Steichen" (Bomb magazine).

Laura Letinsky - Ill Form And Void Full


Radius Books 2014 ISBN 9781934435878 Acqn 23911
Hb 29x33cm 128pp 50col ills 38.50
Chicago-based photographer Laura Letinsky (born 1962) is known for her depictions of the
remnants of foods and objects common to the dining table, ranging from a lipstick-smeared halfempty wine glass to nibbled-upon cakes over ripe fruits. These works have commonly used an
actual tabletop as their point of origin. For her new series Ill Form & Void Full, she creates
references to the table from existing photographs, Martha Stewart, Dwell and Good
Housekeeping magazines, her old work, the art of friends and actual objects. This process shows
how ideas about the private sphere and their manifestation in our lives are always predicated
upon what has come before: that is, perception itself is a construction. Included in this monograph
are 47 works from the series, as well as an interview with the artist conducted by the acclaimed
novelist and cultural critic, Lynne Tillman, along with a characteristically brilliant essay by Anthony
Elms, Associate Curator of at the Institute of Contemporary Art, co-curator of the Whitney
Biennial 2014 and independent critic and writer.

Since 2008, Rmi Coignet has pursued engagements with those artists that inspire him, and for
whom the photobook is an essential form in their work. In this book, a selection of more than 20
photographers, publishers and curators reread their respective work, and reveal their intentions in
the process. It is Coignets hope that from these interviews a geography of contemporary
photography will emerge. With photobooks and the series that artists tend to conceive as a
foundation to conversation, he approaches Irne Attinger, Lewis Baltz, JH Engstrm, Ethan
Levitas, Daido Moriyama, Lesley A. Martin, Anders Petersen, Paul Graham, Raphal Dallaporta
and many others.

Jacques-Andre Boiffard - La Parenthese Surrealiste


Editions Xavier Barral 2014 ISBN 9782365110532 Acqn 24137
Hb 21x30cm 160pp 124ills 18col 38
Text in French
From his illustrations for Nadja by Andr Breton, via Le Gros Orteil or Les Mouches published in
the Documents magazine by Georges Bataille, photographer Jacques-Andr Boiffard (19021961) presented some of the most emblematic images of Surrealist iconography. One of the very
first members of the movement, Boiffard was a discrete but active witness of the Surrealist
adventure. For instance, he wrote the preface to the first issue of La Rvolution Surraliste,
alongside Paul Eluard and Roger Vitrac. Despite the fact that he only affirmed himself as a
photographer after over four years spent as Man Rays assistant, Boiffard sought to
amalgamate subversion, strangeness, and onirism within his own practice of the medium, always
with an uncompromising attitude and an obsession for analysis.

Stephanie Kloss Weltausstellung


Sternberg Press 2014 ISBN 9783956791253 Acqn 24670
Pb 17x24cm 152pp 103ills 74col 19.95
Contributions by Oliver Koerner von Gustorf, Sebastian Preuss, Antonia Blau, Matthias Harder,
Thibaut de Ruyter, Joachim Blank.
This world fair begins with a pyramidnot in Egypt, but in Karlsruhe, Germany. Stephanie Klosss
photographs capture the mythos and utopianism of architecture in locations as diverse as Athens,
Berlin, the United States, and Japan. Yet it is the commonality of modernist architectural form
rather than the peculiarities of place, nation, or time that attracts her lens. In Weltausstellung,
visual anonymity is the main eventbut not the whole story.
Embedded in Klosss photographs, as the absorbing essays in this catalogue reveal, are invisible
histories of human enterprise, idealism, and trauma. The Israeli desert belies the ruins, a
landlocked vessel, as a symbolmoral and otherwiseof Sodom and Gomorrah; an idyllic
Canary Island bears scant traces of Otto Muehls Actionist commune, or of his sexual crimes
against children; an empty dining hall stands in place of forty kibbutzim in Israel, testament to a
once thriving political utopia; and the mute currents of the Mississippi Delta, first devastated by
Hurricane Katrina and then the BP oil spill, keep their silence to the deep waters. Klosss
catalogue as journey speaks a collective photographic language that warns against the ease
and perilof architectural and natural forgetfulness.
