Everyone who lives in Bangkok, whether they were born there or have chosen it as their home, has a different view of the city--no two people live in the same place, even if they live on the same block. In this book are images of five different cities through the eyes of five different residents--showing the Bangkok that they have found and hurried to preserve with a camera before it becomes lost.

A Few Streets, a Few People - Photographs from the Havana Neighbourhood of Cayo Hueso (Hardcover): John Comino-James A Few Streets, a Few People - Photographs from the Havana Neighbourhood of Cayo Hueso (Hardcover)

In "Our Man in Havana", Graham Greene wrote that 'to each man a city consists of no more than a few streets, a few houses, a few people. Remove those few and the city no longer exists except as a pain in the memory, like the pain of an amputated leg no longer there.' In this, his third book, John Comino-James shows us the world that is contained within just a few streets in the very ordinary neighbourhood of Cayo Hueso in Havana, Cuba. Through portraits and candid observation, he builds an honest and intimate record of a small and tight-knit community. This is not the Havana of the tourist, but a city in which people go about their daily lives, dealing with the everyday realities that have resulted from decades of political isolation. In a powerful and beautifully written afterword, Comino-James intersperses his experiences of several vists to the area, with fascinating information on the history of Cuba and the city of Havana.

On April 26, 1986, at 1:24 a.m, the world's worst ever man-made disaster took place. Reactor 4 at Chernobyl Nuclear Power Station, three kilometres from Pripyat in the then Soviet Republic of Ukraine, was beset by a series of explosions that rose deep from its radioactive depths and blasted itself high into the atmosphere, eventually seeping its way into the far corners of the globe. Today the impact of Chernobyl, 21 years later, has become a half-global legend and half-forgotten horror story. The reality is still with many of the 50,000 people who on that fateful night in Pripyat were given less than an hour to gather together their possessions and escape to relative safety 70km away. They were considered the lucky ones, fortunate not to have been vaporised on the spot or to die an excruciating death soon after in the hospitals in Kiev and Moscow that some of the workers and firemen sent to fight the blaze did. Most of the inhabitants had no choice but to gradually return to the contaminated areas that they still call home, and for the past 20 years have continued to live under the shadow of the reactor. Pripyat, in the centre of the 30km wide Red Zone, is still largely a ghost town, where the paint peels in houses and schools, and the dirt settles on childrens' toys that will never be reclaimed. Meanwhile emergency orders still apply to 355 farms in Wales, 11 in Scotland and nine in England. "Chernobyl - The Hidden Legacy" shows the region over a period of three years by Pierpaolo Mittica, who returned several times to document the people and the contaminated landscape they still inhabit. Our world today demands nuclear energy as the answer to its energy crisis, and the legacy of Chernobyl remains shrouded. Time is running out, as the sarcophagus built to contain the reactor and its radioactive contents begins to crumble away. No one has the answers and no one is asking the questions - but can the world afford another Chernobyl?

In February 2001, Foot and Mouth Disease arrived in Cumbria. At its peak Cumbria was the worst affected county in Britain with a staggering 41 per cent of all cases. For the local community, the environmental and social consequences were to prove devastating. As a local resident, leading UK photographer John Darwell found himself surrounded by the effects of the disease. Over the next twelve months, he committed himself to recording what was taking place. Despite government reports to the contrary, the Cumbrian countryside became largely a 'no-go area', whilst on the farms thousands of animals were destroyed, their bodies burnt on the now notorious pyres. The ultimate clean-up of the infected farms led to extraordinary lengths being taken to eradicate the virus. "Dark Days" represents, perhaps, the most complete record of this time and provides a powerful and emotive insight into one of the most dramatic and destructive periods in British farming history. It is published in association with Littoral Arts.

In 2007 TASCHEN released The New Erotic Photography, followed in 2012 by The New Erotic Photography 2. Each book featured hundreds of fresh and provocative images from the world's most intriguing erotic talents. Now the best of both books is available in The New Erotic Photography, featuring 62 photographers from 10 countries, exploring the global variations of erotic photography, as well as the evolution of photographic media over the last decade. We see film give way to digital, while those who persist with film are as likely to use Polaroids and primitive cameras like the Lomo and Holga as traditional SLRs. The featured photographers include new names Gregory Bojorquez, Jo Schwab, Tomohide Ikeya, Frederic Fontenoy, Andrew Pashis, and Jan Hronsky, as well as established artists Guido Argentini, Bruno Bisang, Eric Kroll, and the late Bob Carlos Clarke. Several outstanding women are also featured in this edition, including erotic film star Kimberly Kane, digital pioneer Natacha Merritt, heavy metal skateboarder Magdalena Wosinska, self-portraitist Jody Frost, and cover artist April-lea Hutchinson. It all adds up to an awful lot of nudes for a tantalizingly low price.

Lee Friedlander - The Little Screens (Paperback): Saul Anton Lee Friedlander - The Little Screens (Paperback)
Saul Anton
R365 R295 Discovery Miles 2 950 Save R70 (19%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

An illustrated examination of an early photo-essay by Lee Friedlander that shows television screens broadcasting eerily glowing images into unoccupied rooms. Lee Friedlander's The Little Screens first appeared as a 1963 photo-essay in Harper's Bazaar, with commentary by Walker Evans. Six untitled photographs show television screens broadcasting eerily glowing images of faces and figures into unoccupied rooms in homes and motels across America. As distinctive a portrait of an era as Robert Frank's The Americans, The Little Screens grew in number and was not brought together in its entirety until a 2001 exhibition at the Fraenkel Gallery in San Francisco. Friedlander (b. 1934) is known for his use of surfaces and reflections--from storefront windows to landscapes viewed through car windshields-to present a pointed view of American life. The photographs that make up The Little Screens represent an early example of this photographic strategy, offering the narrative of a peripatetic photographer moving through the landscape of 1960s America that was in thrall to a new medium. In this astute study, Saul Anton argues that The Little Screens marked the historical intersection of modern art and photography at the moment when television came into its own as the dominant medium of mass culture. Friedlander's images, Anton shows, reflect the competing logics of the museum and print and electronic media, and anticipate the issues that have emerged with the transition to a world of ubiquitous "little screens."

Breach of Peace - Portraits of the 1961 Mississippi Freedom Riders (Paperback): Eric Etheridge Breach of Peace - Portraits of the 1961 Mississippi Freedom Riders (Paperback)

R619 R495 Discovery Miles 4 950 Save R124 (20%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Breach of Peace is a photo-history told in images old and new. The book includes the mug shots of all 328 Freedom Riders arrested in Jackson, Mississippi, along with contemporary portraits of 98 Riders, supplemented by interviews and brief bios. (The 2008 edition had 82 profiles.) In the spring and summer of 1961, several hundred Americans blacks and whites, men and women-entered Southern bus and train stations to challenge the segregated waiting rooms, lunch counters, and bathrooms. The Supreme Court had ruled that such segregation was illegal, and the Riders were trying to make the federal government enforce that decision. Though there were Freedom Rides across the South, Jackson soon became the campaign's focus. The 328 Riders arrested there were quickly convicted of breach of peace. The Riders then compounded their protest by refusing bail. ""Jail, no bail!"" was their cry, and they soon filled the city's jails. Mississippi responded by transferring them to Parchman, the infamous Delta prison farm, for the remainder of their time behind bars, usually about six weeks. New to the expanded edition are five portraits made in the maximum-security cells at Parchman during the fiftieth anniversary events of 2011. The mug shots of each Rider, bearing name, birth date, and other personal details, were duly filed away by agents of the Mississippi State Sovereignty Commission, a state investigative body dedicated to preserving white supremacy. By carefully preserving the mug shots, the Commission inadvertently created a testament to these heroes of the civil rights movement.

For more than forty years Angola has faced conflict. From 1961-1975, there was the struggle for independence from Portuguese rule. This was followed by a period of civil war which, in one form or another, extended until 2001, when the UNITA leader Jonas Savimbi was killed in an ambush. This led to a cease-fire, armistice and peace. As a result of these 40 years of war the country has suffered a terrible legacy of unexploded mines and other weapons. Photographer Sean Sutton, who works alongside MAG (Mines Advisory Group) has recorded the impact that this has had on the country and its people, as well the work of those clearing the mines. MAG has been working in Angola for more than 10 years, clearing tens of thousands of landmines and items of unexploded ordnance. The book is introduced by Heather Mills who is a patron of MAG and has campaigned vigorously on the issue of landmines. There is also a text by the renowned photojournalist Tim Page whose photographs during the Vietnam War were published worldwide. Page is the subject of many documentaries, two films and the author of nine books. Lou McGrath, Director of MAG, contributes a further text contextualising the work of landmine clearance.

The resulting images are revealing and powerful. The subjects he chooses: the bars, the cafes, the streets, and the everyday.

Each year the winning project is published in six countries (England, France, Spain, Germany, Italy, Greece) and in six language editions.

At the first glance, we seem to be viewing realistic scenes. Pictures shaped by a sexual obsession and corresponding to the directness of their motifs. Nudes, copulation scenes, and blow jobs as we know them from hardcore or softcore pornography-protagonists radiating a super-cooled beauty!

Does the eroticism now break down because we see our projections reflected from the bodies of dolls? We conceal the confusing realization with a reflex: Ah, we already know this, Cindy Sherman, Louise Bourgois and Walter Pfeiffer have already introduced it! The art pigeonhole helps shield us from succumbing to the peculiar aesthetic experience of the beauty of a well-staged plastic belly or of a back-lit male organ. Gabriela Domeisen's photographs do not resolve this ambivalence-on the contrary: they solidify the peculiar experience of projection as an aesthetic experience.

Using highly detailed color photographs, John Ganis has chronicled the effects of development and extraction industries in every region of the Continental United States over a period of seventeen years. The subjects of Ganis s images are for the most part flagrantly clear abandoned wrecks, desolate strip mines, clear-cut forests, industrial parks, landfill sites, and the flattening of terrain for housing -developments and just as flagrantly disturbing. This is a thesaurus of our "civilized" incursions into the wildness of nature, a charting of our debris-strewn topographies, and a cogent report on our abdication of any reverence -towards the land. In an introductory essay, Robert -Sobieszek, from Los Angeles County Museum, gives an insightful overview of the historical responses to the American landscape and places the work of John Ganis within the context of "the new American pastoral." In 1989, Ganis entered into a collaborative exchange with the noted anthropologist Dr. Stanley Diamond, who wrote the poetry for this book in response to John Ganis s photographs. They represent some of his last and previously unpublished poetic work.John Ganis established his reputation with work on -important environmental issues. His color photographs of land use in America have been exhibited widely and are in the collections of The Brooklyn Museum of Art, The Center for Creative Photography, The Detroit Institute of Arts, The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art etc.He is currently professor and photography department chair at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit."

Images in Spite of All - Four Photographs from Auschwitz (Paperback): Georges Didi-Huberman Images in Spite of All - Four Photographs from Auschwitz (Paperback)

R447 R423 Discovery Miles 4 230 Save R24 (5%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Of one-and-a-half million surviving photographs related to Nazi concentration camps, only four depict the actual process of mass killing perpetrated at the gas chambers. Images in "Spite of All" reveals that these rare photos of Auschwitz, taken clandestinely by one of the Jewish prisoners forced to help carry out the atrocities there, were made as a potent act of resistance. Available today because they were smuggled out of the camp and into the hands of Polish resistance fighters, the photographs show a group of naked women being herded into the gas chambers and the cremation of corpses that have just been pulled out. Georges Didi-Huberman's relentless consideration of these harrowing scenes demonstrates how Holocaust testimony can shift from texts and imaginations to irrefutable images that attempt to speak the unspeakable. Including a powerful response to those who have criticized his interest in these images as voyeuristic, Didi-Huberman's eloquent reflections constitute an invaluable contribution to debates over the representability of the Holocaust and the status of archival photographs in an image-saturated world.
