Chris Killip: In FlagranteChris Killip: In Flagrante

Books on Books No. 4

Published by Errata Editions.
Text by Gerry Badger, John Berger, Sylvia Grant, Jeffrey Ladd.

Chris Killip’s In Flagrante is often cited as the most important photographic book on England in the 1980s. Published in 1988, this work portrays the steady decline of communities in Northern England--former manufacturing powerhouses that were gradually compromised by the policies of Margaret Thatcher and her predecessors from the mid-1970s onward. Killip’s black-and-white photographs were mostly taken with 4 x 5 film, and provide an unflinching look at these disenfranchised northern towns and the poverty visited upon them by deindustrialization. Books on Books No. 4 reproduces Killip’s lyrical work alongside John Berger and Sylvia Grant’s original essay plus a specially commissioned essay, "Dispatches from a War Zone," by acclaimed photo historian Gerry Badger, which explores the social context in which Killip’s evocative images were made.

Martin Parr: Bad WeatherMartin Parr: Bad Weather

Books on Books No. 17

Published by Errata Editions.
Text by Thomas Weski, Peter Turner, Michael Fish, Martin Parr, Jeffrey Ladd.

Published in a landscape paperback format by A. Zwemmer Ltd in 1982, Bad Weather was the debut monograph of one of Britain’s most world-renowned and prolific photographers. Armed with his famous wry humor and a water-proof camera, Martin Parr (born 1952) captured the social landscape and national character of the UK during downpours, drizzles, snow storms and other challenging varieties of the weather for which Britain is so famed, in gentle, charming, black-and-white photographs. Bad Weather has been out of print for 30 years and is now one of Parr’s most sought-after books. Books on Books No.17 reproduces the entire publication spread by spread, and includes an essay by Thomas Weski on Britain’s obsession with its weather, called "Even the Queen Gets Wet."

Richard Billingham: Ray's a LaughRichard Billingham: Ray's a Laugh

Books on Books No. 18

Published by Errata Editions.
Text by Charlotte Cotton, Jeffrey Ladd.

Photographer and painter Richard Billingham (born 1970) grew up in a cramped, high-rise tenement apartment with his mother and father in Birmingham, England. His father, Ray, was an unemployed, chronic alcoholic, often sleeping the whole day through, while Liz, Billingham’s overweight and heavily tattooed mother, filled her home with porcelain dolls and jigsaw puzzles, housing ten cats and three dogs. These are Billingham’s subjects. In stark comparison to conventional family photos around the dinner table or in front of the Christmas tree, Billingham’s images are raw, intimate and often uncomfortably humorous. First published in 2000, Ray’s a Laugh is now considered one of the most important British photo books of the recent past. This publication reproduces this renowned book spread by spread, including a contemporary essay by Charlotte Cotton.

Ed van der Elsken: Sweet LifeEd van der Elsken: Sweet Life

Books on Books No. 13

Published by Errata Editions.
Text by Frits Gierstberg, Ed van der Elsken, Jeffrey Ladd.

In 1960, armed with two magazine commissions and a stipend from Netherlands television, Ed van der Elsken (1925–1990) and his wife Gerda set off on a fourteen-month journey around the world, from West Africa, the Malay Peninsula, the Philippines, Hong Kong and Japan to the United States and Mexico. Six years after their return, he published his travelogue Sweet Life (named after a little tramp steamer in the Philippines): a sprawling, exuberant chronicle of their journey and his encounters with a range of people in the streets, from joyous lovers to destitute down-and-outs. The book itself exhibited a panoply of layout effects: double-page bleeds, crops, printed in deep gravure, and different cover designs for each of the six countries in which it was published. This legendary Dutch photobook is presented here complete, with a contemporary essay by Frits Gierstberg.

Keld Helmer-Petersen: 122 Colour PhotographsKeld Helmer-Petersen: 122 Colour Photographs

Books on Books No. 14

Published by Errata Editions.
Text by Mette Sandbye, Keld Helmer-Petersen, Jeffrey Ladd.

While the rise of color photography as a viable artistic medium has often been credited to the celebrated work of Willam Eggleston and Stephen Shore in the 1970s, their efforts had in fact been preceded by almost two decades by the Danish photographer Keld Helmer-Petersen (born 1920). Helmer-Petersen’s 1948 publication of 122 Colour Photographs stands as an extraordinary accomplishment: inspired by the realism of the Neue Sachlichkeit movement, Helmer-Petersen concentrated on the mundane and the everyday, generating a panoply of geometric abstractions out of curved doorknobs, crates of tomatoes, industrial metal drums and straw-colored buildings against milky blue skies. With this reproduction, accompanied by an essay by historian Mette Sandbye, 122 Colour Photographs can at last assume its proper role as the foundational book that successfully put color photography on the map and brought modernism into Danish photography.

Krass Clement: DrumKrass Clement: Drum

Books on Books No. 16

Published by Errata Editions.
Text by Rune Gade, Jeffrey Ladd.

Photographed in a small pub in Drum, Ireland, on a single evening and with only a few rolls of film (and a rumored “five pints of Guinness”), Krass Clement (born 1946) created one of the most important contributions to the contemporary Danish photobook. His 1996 Drum opens in a darkening and foggy town, with a workday ending and some men heading off for a drink. Through subtle shifts in focus and a masterful filmic sequencing, the book comes to concentrate on one principal character in the shadowy pub: a hunched, weather-beaten old man sitting alone with his drink. Drum is a quiet, dusky meditation on community, the outsider, alienation and the terrors of being alone. A virtually unobtainable and therefore highly sought-after photobook, Clement’s masterwork is here reproduced in full, accompanied with an essay by photo historian Rune Gade.

Nobuyoshi Araki: The BanquetNobuyoshi Araki: The Banquet

Books on Books No. 15

Published by Errata Editions.
Text by Ivan Vartanian, Nobuyoshi Araki, Jeffrey Ladd.

First published in Japan in 1993, Nobuyoshi Araki’s The Banquet (Shokuji) offers a moving tribute to the photographer’s late wife, Yoko, through a photo-diary of the food they shared together in the last months of her life. The book is composed of three related sections: commercial color photographs of meals shot by Araki from 1985 onwards, using a ring flash and a macro lens; a (written) food diary; and black-and-white photographs taken at home, using only available light, a series Araki began after doctors told his wife she had only a month to live. As Martin Parr and Gerry Badger observe, “The obvious metaphor is to suggest that the color was leaving Araki’s world, but his intentions are not quite so simple. The retreat from color is a retreat from realism to romanticism....” This deeply personal diary of loss is here reprinted in its entirety along with an essay by Ivan Vartanian.Errata Editions' Books on Books series is an ongoing publishing project dedicated to making rare and out-of-print photography books accessible to students and photobook enthusiasts.

Paul Graham: Beyond CaringPaul Graham: Beyond Caring

Books on Books No. 9

Published by Errata Editions.
Text by David Chandler, Jeffrey Ladd.

Published in 1986, Beyond Caring is now regarded as one of the key works from Britain's wave of "New Colour" photography. Paul Graham (born 1956) was commissioned to present his view of "Britain in 1984" by the Photographer's Gallery in London, and turned his attention towards the breakdown of the welfare benefits system across the United Kingdom. In the "lemon green walls" of waiting rooms and the all-day "inevitable queues," Graham captured the poor working conditions and the inefficient service of the overburdened social security and unemployment offices across the nation. Photographing surreptitiously, his camera is both witness and protagonist within a bureaucratic system that speaks to the humiliation and indignity aimed towards the most vulnerable in society. Errata's complete reproduction of this now rare and controversial book is augmented with contemporary essays by writer and curator David Chandler and Errata Creative Director Jeffrey Ladd.

David Goldblatt: In BoksburgDavid Goldblatt: In Boksburg

Books on Books No. 7

Published by Errata Editions.
Text by Jeffrey Ladd, Joanna Lehan.

David Goldblatt's In Boksburg stands as one of the most important observations of a middle-class white community in South Africa during the apartheid years. Published in 1982, it presents an accumulation of everyday details from the community of Boksburg through which a larger portrait is revealed of white societal values within a racially divided state. “Blacks are not of this town,” writes Goldblatt. “They serve it, trade with it, receive charity from it and are ruled, rewarded and punished by its precepts. Some, on occasion, are its privileged guests. But all who go there, do so by permit or invitation, never by right.” This facsimile reproduces all 71 black-and-white photographs as well as Goldblatt's eloquent introduction to the work, and noted writer and editor, Joanna Lehan, contributes a contemporary essay written for this volume.

Books on Books No. 8

Published by Errata Editions.
Text by Pauline Terreehorst, Jeffrey Ladd.

Koen Wessing's Chili, September 1973 is a shocking account of government brutality, from a socially concerned and politically engaged Dutch photojournalist who has gone on to make similarly powerful images in Ireland, Chile, Guinea-Bissau, Nicaragua, El Salvador, China, Berlin and Amsterdam. First published in 1973, just months after the fall of Salvador Allende to Augusto Pinochet's coup d'etat, it describes the tense days of the military attempt to root out public opposition in the streets of Santiago, and has since become one of documentary photography's most exemplary moments. This entry in Errata Editions' Books on Books series reproduces every spread from Wessing's gritty documentation of Chile's darkest historical moment; art historian and film theorist Pauline Terreehorst contributes a contemporary essay titled “The Man in the Grey Suit: Koen Wessing: Chili 1973.”

William Klein: Life is Good & Good for You in New YorkWilliam Klein: Life is Good & Good for You in New York

Books on Books No. 5

Published by Errata Editions.
Text by Max Kozloff, Jeffrey Ladd.

William Klein's Life is Good & Good for You in New York is regarded as one of the most influential and groundbreaking photo-books created in the last half-century. Published in 1956, its visual energy captured the rough-and-tumble streets of New York—a city Klein once described as “the world capital of anguish”—like no photo-book had done before or since. Robert Capa famously declared that if your photographs were no good it was because you were not close enough to your subject, and in Klein's New York people press themselves up against the lens, dance around it, pull faces, pretend to shoot each other—a visual chaos which is rigorously organized by Klein's “one American eye and one European eye,” as he once characterized his style. Books on Books 5 reproduces in its entirety Klein's brilliantly photographed and designed magnum opus.

Yutaka Takanashi: Toshi-e (Towards the City)Yutaka Takanashi: Toshi-e (Towards the City)

Books on Books No.6

Published by Errata Editions.
Text by Gerry Badger, Jeffrey Ladd, Gozo Yoshimasu.

Yutaka Takanashi's Toshi-e (Towards the City) is a landmark volume from one of the founders of the short-lived avant-garde Japanese magazine Provoke. The photographers associated with Provoke cultivated a grainy, blurry, black-and-white aesthetic, and Takanashi's pictures are grainy in the extreme. In contrast to his earlier, more upbeat Tokyoites series, the images here approach landscapes at skewed angles, as though shot from a speeding car, speeding perhaps “towards the city.” Published in 1974 and considered the most luxurious of all of the Provoke-era publications, its brooding, pessimistic tone describes the state of contemporary life in an unnamed city, in a Japan undergoing massive economic and industrial transformations. This sixth volume in Errata's Books on Books series reproduces all 116 black-and-white photographs, along with an essay by the British photographer, writer and book historian Gerry Badger.

Atget: Photographe de ParisAtget: Photographe de Paris

Books on Books No. 1

Published by Errata Editions.
Text by David Campany, Pierre Mac Orlan, Jeffrey Ladd.

Errata Editions' Books on Books series is an ongoing publishing project dedicated to making rare and out-of-print photography books accessible to students and photobook enthusiasts. These are not reprints or facsimiles but complete studies of the original books. Each volume in the series presents the entire content, page for page, of an original master bookwork which, up until now, has been too rare or expensive for most to experience. Through a mix of classic and contemporary titles, this series spans the breadth of photographic practice as it has appeared on the printed page and allows further study of the creation and meanings of these great works of art. Each volume in the series contains illustrations of every page in the original photobook, a new essay by an established writer on photography, production notes about the creation of the original edition and biographical and bibliographical information about each artist.
Atget: Photographe de Paris is the perfect starting point for this invaluable new series on great photography books. Published in 1930, three years after Atget's death, it is now regarded as a classic that has influenced many generations of artists, including Berenice Abbott and Walker Evans. Books on Books 1 reproduces all 96 collotype plates from the original, as well as a translation of the original Pierre Mac Orlan text on Eugene Atget's remarkable documentation of Paris at the turn of the nineteenth century. Noted author and lecturer David Campany contributes a contemporary essay called "Atget's Intelligent Documents" written for this volume.

Often referenced as the most important photobook to come out of England in the 1980s, Chris Killip's In Flagrante stands the test of time today. Published in 1988, In Flagrante shows the communities in Northern England that were devastated by the deindustrialization common to policies carried out by Margaret Thatcher and her predecessors starting in the mid-1970s. Books on Books 4 presents Killip's political yet lyric work along with a new essay, "Dispatches from a War Zone" by noted photo historian and critic Gerry Badger.

In October of 1991, French artist Sophie Ristelhueber photographed the battle-scarred landscape of Kuwait following the end of the first Gulf War. The book, Fait, which in French means "fact" or "what was done," remains one of our least known but most powerful statements about the aftermath of war. Books on Books 3 presents all 71 black-and-white and color photographs as seen in the original artist's book as it was conceived and designed by Ristelhueber. Marc Mayer of the Musée d'art contemporain de Montreal contributes an essay that discusses Ristelhueber's disturbing yet beautiful achievement.

Walker Evans' American Photographs is arguably the most important photobook ever published. Originally conceived as a catalogue to accompany Evan's one-man show at The Museum of Modern Art in 1938, it has been out of print for many long stretches of time. Books on Books 2 presents the original 1938 edition with the 87 legendary black-and-white photographs that defined the documentary-style aesthetic. This volume also reproduces Lincoln Kirstein's great original essay as well as a contemporary piece by John T. Hill, the author of many books on Evans, including Lyric Documentary, published in 2006.
