Mark TanseyMark Tansey

Published by Kerber.
Artwork by Mark Tansey.

The monumental monochrome paintings of Mark Tansey seem at first to celebrate a landscape's elemental grandeur with photographic accuracy. Icy blues of snow- and oceanscapes show a frozen moment of nature's ungraspability. Then, out of the blue, literally, you make out a face in a large snowball--and not just any face, but Karl Marx's. A vague surfer rides roiling swells around the Statue of Liberty, and the cliff face that climbers are scaling is as impossibly angled as an Escher staircase. Now we realize we're in the same intellectual and often very funny terra infirma of Tansey's earlier quasi-conceptual works, as when he reimagined Picasso and Braque as the Wright brothers trying to get their Cubist plane off the ground. That old and new Tansey territory, a land of slippery perceptions, makes up this survey of an important contemporary American painter.

Michael Reisch: New LandscapesMichael Reisch: New Landscapes

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Text by Duncan Forbes, Rolf Hengesbach.

The landscape photographs of Michael Reisch (born 1964) show nature as spookily pristine and oddly frozen. Upon closer inspection, the viewer senses that something is amiss. These landscapes are indeed based on existing places, but Reisch has processed his images digitally, and arrived at a visual effect that both fascinates and disquiets in its airless perfection.

Paolo Ventura: Winter StoriesPaolo Ventura: Winter Stories

Published by Aperture.
Text by Eugenia Parry.

In this luxuriously produced limited edition, Paolo Ventura invents an imaginative series of photographs depicting scenes from the memory banks of an old circus performer as he looks back on his life. What the performer revisits are not moments of great drama, but rather fleetingly recalled glimpses of an everyday life, "images that he had thought to have never seen, quick moments he unknowingly observed as he raised his eyes to the clock hung at the corner of the block." Using his own childhood memories, beautiful miniature figures and sophisticated sets, Ventura re-envisions a simpler time in 1930s Italy, but his darker vision--with its shadowy backdrops and retreating figures--reminds us that this is not quite Eden. Skillfully crafted and hauntingly evocative, the work is filled with the sweet melancholy of an era, but remains timeless in its ability to resonate with contemporary audiences. This monograph contains an engaging sequence of images, ephemera from Ventura's working process and a selection of the artful drawings he creates as guides to his elaborate sets.
Born in Cuba in 1968, raised in Italy and now a resident of New York City, Paolo Ventura studied at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera in Milan in the early 1990s. His work has been exhibited internationally, including at Forma International Center for Photography, Milan, the Rencontres de la Photographie, Arles, France and Maison Europénne de la Photographie, Paris. Ventura is represented by Hasted Hunt, New York.

Ragnar Axelsson: Last Days of the ArcticRagnar Axelsson: Last Days of the Arctic

Published by Crymogea.
Text by Mark Nuttall.

Ragnar Axelsson is one of Iceland's best-known photojournalists. For over 15 years, he has been documenting people in the North Atlantic. In this book of nearly 200 photographs, Axelsson turns his lens on the Arctic, which is warming faster than any other region on earth. Axelsson's gorgeous photographs, mostly in black and white, show vast glaciers, sleds gliding across ice, and houses mostly buried in snow, but they also depict how the Inuit's way of life is transforming drastically as a result of climate change, prefiguring the enormous changes that are on their way to the rest of the world.

Sonja Braas: ForcesSonja Braas: Forces

Published by Kerber.
Essays by Susanne Pfleger and Thomas Seelig.

Nature as represented in Sonja Braas's photographs is not a sweet and gentle force but a violent and destructive one. Roaring waterfalls, crashing ice and eroding rocks are pictured large-scale and at frighteningly close range, almost as if the camera tripod was set up in the middle of the action. Braas succeeds in capturing the unrestrained drama of nature, in all its visual and aural strength--but is the spectacle she frames entirely authentic? Subtle hints and surreal light effects suggest that parts of her photographs are simulated, for an artistically inflated version of nature.

True NorthTrue North

Published by Guggenheim Museum.
Text by Rebecca Solnit, Jennifer Blessing.

True North features the work of contemporary artists whose photographic or video-based work evokes the formal conventions of Northern Romantic landscape painting as well as its legacy in later nineteenth-century photography. Yet unlike their Romantic antecedents, the works in this exhibition are historically and politically self-reflexive and problematize the notion of a pure, unchangeable North. Rather than report a uniquely Northern essence or truth, this presentation is premised on the idea that our visions of the North are structured through our own varying positions. A fantastical place of fear, desire, refuge, conquest and decay, the North has played an increasingly important role in the work of contemporary artists interested in the socio-political issues of colonization and pollution, as well as aesthetic notions of the sublime. Accompanying a spring 2008 exhibition at Deutsche Guggenheim, Berlin, this catalogue includes entries on the featured artists: Stan Douglas, Olafur Eliasson, Elger Esser, Thomas Flechtner, Roni Horn, Armin Linke and Orit Raff. In the introduction, Jennifer Blessing, Curator of Photography at the Guggenheim Museum, sketches a theoretical framework for the exhibition, linking the recent focus on Northern locales to the qualities of the photographic medium itself. Rebecca Solnit's poetic essay gathers together personal recollections, reflections on literature and environmental and political concerns to explore various cultural fantasies and symbols associated with the North.

Olaf Otto Becker: Above ZeroOlaf Otto Becker: Above Zero

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Text by Dr. Konrad Steffen. Interview by Freddi Langer.

Following Broken Line, a prizewinning portrait of the coast of Greenland, Olaf Otto Becker (born in Travemünde, 1959) turns his attention to the interior of the island in his new series, Above Zero. Second only to Antarctica, Greenland has the largest inland ice surfaces in the world. Becker's spectacular portraits of this region are taken during physically strenuous, sometimes life-threatening treks among glacial crevasses and melting ice floes, with a cumbersome large-format camera. His photo studies draw out the overwhelming beauty of this icy landscape, while documenting their present fragility: dust and rust in the air form black, crusty deposits, which, in conjunction with global warming, accelerate the melting of the ice sheets--with what will probably be inevitable, catastrophic results. Becker warns that even in these uninhabited regions, human actions can have fatal consequences.

Jorma Puranen: Icy ProspectsJorma Puranen: Icy Prospects

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Text by Liz Wells.

Jorma Puranen (born 1951) is one of Finland's best-known photographers. For his latest series, Icy Prospects, inspired by the fascination of great explorers (and today's tourists) with the Arctic landscape, Puranen painted a wooden board with black, high-gloss acrylic and then took long exposures of the landscapes mirrored in its surface. The results are extremely painterly impressions of nature, in which ground, brushstroke and reflection intermingle.

Infinite Ice: The Arctic and the Alps from 1860 to the PresentInfinite Ice: The Arctic and the Alps from 1860 to the Present

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Preface by Klaus Albrecht Schröder. Text by Monika Faber, Maren Gröning, Herbert Justnik.

Photographs of glaciers and Arctic regions have existed almost as long as photography itself, as a function of documentary and mapmaking endeavors. As early as the 1860s, the medium was used to assess topology, capturing Arctic landscape at a distance and at close quarters, or producing stereoscopic images or panoramas. Glaciologists needed photographs to be taken year after year in order to assess the growth or contraction of the ice, and today repeat photography has become a valuable tool for documenting and demonstrating the real effects of global warming. In Infinite Ice, historical images are reproduced alongside the responses of contemporary artists who have addressed photography and landscape--for example, long, nighttime exposures by Darren Almond, aerial photographs by Olafur Eliasson or panoramic views by Walter Niedermayr. Featuring approximately 100 images, this volume presents a broad variety of glacial photography from 1860 to the present.

Joan Perlman: Element/FrumkrafturJoan Perlman: Element/Frumkraftur

Published by Joan Perlman.
Foreword by Pétrún Pétursdóttir. Introduction by Lawrence Rinder. Text by Anne Brydon. Poetry by Brad Leithauser.

I traveled for many years to Iceland in my dreams. When I finally arrived there, I felt an affinity with its spare volcanic landscape; this resonance has sustained my creative work for over a decade… Joan Perlman's large-scale abstract paintings reflect the artist's enduring interest in the landscape and geologic phenomena of Iceland. This first monograph explores, through works on canvas and the video installation, "From Ice," the shifting light, colors and energy patterns of the powerful waters of the southeast coast's glacial rivers. In addition, it features a thoughtful and humorous introduction by the esteemed curator and critic, Lawrence Rinder, poetry by Brad Leithauser, an essay by cultural anthropologist Dr. Anne Brydon and photography by the Icelandic geologist Oddur Sigurdsson.
Joan Perlman was born in New York and currently lives in Los Angeles. Her work has been the subject of exhibitions in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Reykjavik. In 2008, it will be featured in a solo show at David Cunningham Projects, San Francisco.
