FEATURED PHOTOGRAPHY BOOKS
After nearly a lifetime of traveling and photographing in far-flung places such as Mexico, Ghana, Italy, Scotland and his adoptive country, France, Paul Strand began to concentrate on the stony beauty of his own garden at Orgeval. The work that constitutes The Garden at Orgeval offers a close, exacting study of nature’s forms and patterns: tiny button-shaped flowers, cascading winter branches and snarls of twigs. While these photographs exhibit the same directness and precise vision that is so quintessentially Strand, they also reflect his increasing preoccupation with mortality and the fragility of existence.
The photographs in this volume have been selected by the renowned photographer, Joel Meyerowitz--whose own affinity toward the Orgeval series stems from a lifetime of photographing in different genres and ultimately, like Strand, returning to nature as an enduring subject. Meyerowitz also contributes an essay responding to Strand’s images and reflecting on the contemplation of gardens and the process of aging.
Paul Strand (1890–1976) was one of the greatest photographers of the twentieth century, and among the first to establish photography as an art form. As a youth, he studied under Lewis Hine at the Ethical Culture Fieldston School, going on to win acclaim from the likes of Alfred Stieglitz and David Alfaro Siqueiros. After World War II, Strand traveled around the world--from New England to Ghana, France to the Outer Hebrides--and eventually settled in Orgeval, France, where he spent the remaining 27 years of his life.  > more

This deluxe album, a selection of the finest photographs from Richard Misrach’s acclaimed Golden Gate series (previously published in a smaller trim size, now out of print), has been assembled for publication on the historic occasion of the seventy-fifth anniversary of the iconic Golden Gate bridge. In 1997 Misrach began a three-year project photographing the bridge at all times of day and night, in every season, from a single vantage point on his front porch. Within this simple framework, in which the subject and its framing remain fixed in every photograph, an alchemy occurs. An astonishing range of atmosphere, light, and color unfolds, bringing fresh revelation and interpretation to a familiar view--a unique and beautiful photographic meditation on place and time. This special album commemorates one of the most iconic and lasting symbols of American progress and ingenuity.
Richard Misrach (born 1949) is credited with helping pioneer the renaissance of color photography and large-scale presentation in the 1970s. He has exhibited extensively, and his work is held in the permanent collections of prestigious institutions such as The Museum of Modern Art, Whitney Museum of American Art and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, in New York; National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; and The Art Institute of Chicago. He is a recipient of numerous awards, including the Guggenheim Fellowship and four fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts. In 2011, Misrach’s series Destroy This Memory was installed in its entirety at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art along with simultaneous exhibitions of his work at the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive and the Oakland Museum of California. Misrach is represented by Fraenkel Gallery, San Francisco; Pace/MacGill Gallery, New York; and Marc Selwyn Fine Art, Los Angeles. He lives in Berkeley, California.  > more

American photographer Andrew Moore began photographing in Cuba in 1998, and over the next fourteen years he made ten further visits, working to reveal the many facets of the island’s unique character and life. In 2002, he published some of this work in Inside Havana, which is now out of print. This new edition includes many of Moore’s older classic images but reconceives its predecessor with a new layout and finer, larger reproductions. Cuba also features many older photographs never previously published, as well as new photographs made specifically for this edition. The afterword was especially commissioned for this edition from Orlando Luis Pardo Lazo, one of Cuba’s leading independent bloggers.
Working with a large format camera, Moore insightfully records the shifting fortunes of Cuba, in superb photographs full of painterly light and dynamic color. His images span a tremendous variety of subjects, ranging from humble interiors to magnificent modernism, as well as portraits and landscapes. One theme introduced in this revised version is the contrast between the frayed patinas of Cuban homes and the great, unspoiled beauty of the island’s nature. Cuba is a stirring portrait of a country isolated from the globalized world, overflowing with its own remarkable riches.
The photographs of Andrew Moore (born 1957) are represented in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum, Yale University Art Gallery, The Museum of Fine Arts Houston, the Library of Congress, the Israel Museum, the George Eastman House and the Canadian Centre for Architecture.  > more
