Rinko Kawauchi - The River Embraced Me


Torch Press 2019 ISBN 9784907562045 Acqn 26684
Hb 23x28cm 80pp col ills £40

This book is published on the occasion of an exhibit of recent photographs by Rinko Kawauchi at
the Contemporary Art Museum, Kumamoto. Inspired by individual memories of Kumamoto's
inhabitants, the commissioned exhibition combines their stories with works of photography. An
open call resulted in photographs shot at more than 40 locations around Kumamoto and its
environs, from parks and the seashore to a train station, empty road, and pond with koi. The
series marks a collaborative effort between Kawauchi and the city's people that chronicles
memories in an evocative and personal way. With a booklet insert featuring an extensive text by
curator Haruko Tomisawa.

Mari Katayama – Gift


United Vagabonds 2019 ISBN 9784908600043 Acqn 29583
Hb 22x31cm 136pp col ills £60

This first book by Mari Katayama is both a retrospective and a document of her evolution as a
photographer and artist. Katayama, who was born with tibial hemimelia, a rare deficiency that
prevented growth in the lower legs and caused a cleft left hand that resembles a crab's pincers,
amputated her legs at age nine. She explores the possibilities of her own body by creating
situations that manipulate the way we see her and painting tattoo-like designs on her prosthetics.
Intricately embroidered, pillow-like objects in the shape of limbs and mannequins combine with
self-portrait photography to elucidate uncanny and alluring expressions of a DIY aesthetic and
notions of beauty.

Marwan Bassiouni - New Dutch Views


Lecturis 2019 ISBN 9789462263307 Acqn 29684
Pb 29x38cm 64pp col ills £33.75

The series 'New Dutch Views' started as Marwan Bassiouni's graduation project and was since
developed further. Now it appears as a book with many new photographs and autobiographical
reflections, published on the occasion of an exhibition at the Fotomuseum in The Hague.
Bassiouni visited polders, industrial areas, small villages, inner cities, and outlying suburbs
throughout the Netherlands to capture typical views framed by mosque windows. The result is a
powerful visual experience, a mixed representation of identity, society, and the portrayal of Islam
in Western culture. Moreover, it is a rebuttal from the perspective of Dutch Muslims of Islam's
often negative perception.

Kaveh Kazemi - My Days In Troubled Ireland


Nazar Research Cultural Institute 2019 ISBN 9786001523007 Acqn 29823
Hb 22x29cm 144pp col ills £59

Kaveh Kazemi got his start in 1979 by covering the Iranian Revolution and its aftermath, but in
1984 he decided to leave his homeland and expand his career as a photojournalist. For his first
self-commissioned assignment abroad, he chose Northern Ireland. Diving into the heart of Belfast
during the Troubles, Kazemi was able to link up with key IRA contacts and photograph the
conflicted neighbourhoods, marches, scores of murals, and British military patrols and
checkpoints that set the tone during the turbulent 1980s in the region called Ulster. His keen eye
for detail against this backdrop of violence now serves as a reminder of a painful past in this
collection of photographs.

La Movida - A Chronicle Of Turmoil


Cabeza De Chorlito 2019 ISBN 9788493968267 Acqn 29907
Pb 22x33cm 128pp col ills £44.50

From 1978 and for almost a decade following, Madrid was both the origin and epicentre of an
upheaval. "La Movida" was not an artistic movement, nor did it have a political manifesto. Rather,
it was an emergence; a countercultural, youthful convulsion. The ostracism and short-sightedness
that characterised the dictatorship were being left behind and a restless cohort of young people
was diving into life. Four photographers captured the zeitgeist like no other: Miguel Trillo, Pablo
Perez-Minguez, Ouka Leele, and Alberto Garcia-Alix. The impact of La Movida reverberated
through all the layers of Spanish society with a creativity and visual imagery that merged with the
heart of the times.

Michael Ashkin - Were It Not For


Fw 2019 ISBN 9789490119805 Acqn 29912
Pb 22x28cm 256pp col ills £39.50

American artist Michael Ashkin works across a range of media: painting, photography, video,
sculpture, and text. Uniting these diverse practices is a conceptual focus on the way that notions
of spaces and place, landscape and self are shaped by wider political and economic forces. The
photographs in this series were all shot in the Mojave Desert and are joined in this publication
with a textual work. The combination creates a powerful sense of unease throughout the
document, one that explores the idea of fear and haunting as an effect of the violent legacies
contained within the landscape, as well as a function of the technologies that we use to represent
it.

Hans Bol - God's Allies Revisited


Recto Verso Publications 2019 ISBN 9789080876774 Acqn 29934
Pb 15x21cm 64pp 39col ills £29

Following on Hans Bol's 2018 publication 'God's Allies', in which he presented his black-and-
white photographs of crows and ravens, 'Revisited' features silver gelatin prints that depict the
darker and perhaps more divine side of these intriguing birds. After all, crows and ravens have
gained a reputation for being intelligent, alert, and playful, and are often associated with both
death and good fortune. At the same time, the publication is a personal celebration of the
photographer's craft. Bol goes on at length about his long hours of concentration in the darkroom,
experimenting with chemical processes and chance, allowing himself the freedom to be precise,
but not too precise.

Louise Enhorning – Agape


Art And Theory Publishing 2019 ISBN 9789188031815 Acqn 29968
Hb 21x25cm 80pp 53ills 31col £44.50

Louise Enhorning's latest body of work is a meditation on love of different kinds. The title "Agape"
references the Greek term for a form of non-romantic love, affection, charity. The series of
photographs with their luminous colours and unearthly atmosphere deal simultaneously with
depth and surface, the real and the superficial. In a seemingly random sequence of photographs,
a rhythm emerges, weaving a complex web of discovery. The book features an evocative essay
by Swedish art critic, philosopher, and writer Lars-Erik Hjertstrom Lappalainen which takes the
reader on a short journey through Louise Enhorning's distinctive world of love.

Rebecca Fertinel – Ubuntu - I Am Because We Are


Lecturis 2019 ISBN 9789462263109 Acqn 29629
Pb 20x26cm 164pp ills £39.50

In august of 2015 photographer Rebecca Fertinel was invited to a wedding by her friend Tracy
Tansia. Here, she was introduced to the warm, unabashed life-approach of the Congolese
community in Belgium and the Bantu concept 'Ubuntu': that you really only become human when
you are connected to everything and everyone. In Fertinel's photographic documentary, the
concept of Ubuntu seems to intertwine with the desire to belong to a group and maintain a group
identity in a changing environment. Focused on the joy and the ritual and not on a need for a
perfect venue. This project wants to place the viewer inside an environment that most have
experienced at one time or another for a wedding, party or a wake.

Paul Cupido – Amazonia


Alauda Publishing 2019 ISBN 9789082396645 Acqn 29946
Pb 20x32cm 132pp col ills £55

There is perhaps no place on our planet that is imbued with more spirituality than the Amazon
rainforest. During his artist's residency at LABVERDE, a programme for artistic immersion in the
Brazilian Amazon, Paul Cupido took his camera and entered into a silent dialogue with this
enchanting and mystical environment, focusing on leaves, foliage, water, and the moon. His
photographic work revolves around the principle of mu, a philosophical concept that is open to
countless interpretations. Mu can be considered a void, albeit one that holds potential. With
'Amazonia', he explores the ephemeral and symbolic correspondences between the body and the
earth.

Oasis - Stephane Ruchaud


Rue Du Bouquet 2019 ISBN 9791097416195 Acqn 29902
Pb 23x29cm 84pp col ills £57.50

Photographer Stephane Ruchaud's 'Oasis' is a reverie that immerses us in the heart of a sensory
experience inspired by summer; a photographic exploration into the imagination of the material of
the season. It is suspended time, where sensations are exacerbated by softness, heat, and light,
a true escape which takes us away from daily life. The reverie allows us to be attentive to
sensations, textures, and movements, and to sometimes look at the world in a more sensual way.
The images follow each other, the stories intermingle. Moving between landscapes, still lifes, and
fictional portraits, it connects to a collective imagination. With a text by Christophe Honore.

Daido Moriyama - Record 41


Akio Nagasawa 2019 no ISBN Acqn 29904
Pb 21x28cm 48pp 96ills £35.50

In this instalment of 'Record', Daido Moriyama writes that, if everything goes as planned, a movie
themed around him and the processes of his photographic work will be released later in 2019. He
also claims that he has not been inside a movie theatre in almost ten years. It seems strange,
since Moriyama has said that he spent a lot of time in cinemas when he was young. When
someone once asked him to name his favourite film, he pondered for a while before finally
coming up with the answer: David Lynch's 'Eraserhead'. The movie's aesthetic, the darkness that
permeates every light and shadow, has evidently made a profound, indelible mark on Moriyama
and his practice.

Pb 11x19cm 84pp col ills £31

Following up on the first 'Walking in Place' book, in which photographer Mike Slack wanders
through New Orleans, this second instalment makes a journey through Berlin. Slack has a keen
eye for the mundane, snapping pics of the many easily overlooked sights this capital city has to
offer. Whether it is a faded vending machine, architectural detail, urban vegetation, public
artwork, park playground, or unusual object behind a grimy shop window, his camera frames
everything in a fresh new light. From familiar landmarks to the hidden corners of Germany's
beating heart, Slack pushes us to take a closer look, to seek out those fascinating perspectives
that might otherwise go unnoticed.

Pb 25x28cm 384pp col ills £62

'American Origami' is the result of six years of photographic research by Andres Gonzalez. The
project closely examines the epidemic of mass shootings in American schools, interweaving first-
person interviews, forensic documents, press materials, and original photographs. The book
takes its reader through a visual journey of shared grief and atonement to illuminate moments of
beauty and pose moral questions embedded in acts of collective healing. Bound in a unique way,
the varied elements repeat and fold into each other, creating a parallel world of past and present,
and showing the silenced landscape together with the personal artefacts created by those left
behind.
