FEATURED IMAGE

Christopher Anderson: Stump

Stump is a thump of a word – blunt, unforgiving in its sound and abruptness. It is what’s left of a severed limb. It is also what politicians do on the campaign trail. They stump. Christopher Anderson’s collection of photographs from the 2008 campaign for president hammers that word over and over again, as his close-up, warts-and-all photographs of politicians fall one after another, bam bam bam, through this lushly printed book. Many of these photographs originally appeared in the New York Times Magazine as the campaign progressed, but to see them again, years later, bound together, is to witness a singular vision of human activity. The faces here – Condoleeza Rice, Newt Gingrich, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Mitt Romney, Joe Biden, Chris Christie (pictured here) and so many others, known and anonymous – are presented equally, filling each page. No party affiliation guides Anderson’s camera. Instead he focuses on the actions of the stump. The speaking, the watching, the arguing and the hoping, and most of all, the sheer fleshy humanity of politics. This nearly grotesque objectivity calls to mind the Neue Sachlichkeit of Otto Dix and other German artists in the 1920s. Stump is an unsparing glimpse of human activity, and one of the most compelling photography books of the year. Available at our booth at Paris Photo Los Angeles, opening Thursday, April 24.

An Essential Photography Library

An Essential Photography LibraryIn his essay, "Is Photography a Failure," reproduced in Aperture's Stieglitz on Photography, Stiegllitz writes, "This machine can negate ninety-nine percent of what was called and still is called painting. Through it a man who knows how to really photograph is able to channel the impulses of human beings and to register the objective world directly, through the science of optics and the chemistry of silver and platinum, translated into tonalities subtle beyond the reach of any human hand."

Ooga Booga

Ooga Booga is an art-books-clothing-music shop located in Chinatown Los Angeles. As Sierra Feldner-Shaw of Style Section L.A. describes, "...the boutique's charm and insider appeal remains unmached...Chock full of hand-made, handpicked and all-around special objects, Wendy Yao calls her carefully curated retail establishment-cum-clubhouse 'grandma’s closet.' It’s more like...the home of your most in-the-know friend—if she had display tables set up in the middle of her bedroom." >>visit bookstore website
