Gabriel Figueroa: Luna CórneaGabriel Figueroa: Luna Córnea

Published by Editorial RM.

This issue of the Mexican journal of photography and culture Luna Córnea--published in book form--examines in detail the prolific career of the iconic Mexican cinematographer, portraitist and still photographer Gabriel Figueroa Mateos (1907-1997). Best known for his cinematographic work with Emilio Fernandez, Luis Buñuel, John Ford and John Huston--he filmed Ford's famous 1946 version of The Fugitive and received an Academy Award nomination in 1966 for his work on Huston's The Night of the Iguana--Figueroa Mateos' oeuvre consists of more than 200 films, including several masterpieces of Mexican cinema. "A builder of stark and ominous shadows, Figueroa Mateos' iconography often featured Mexican revolutionaries and bandits in broad-brimmed sombreros, framed by cactus, vast skies and threatening clouds," according to The New York Times, who quoted Figueroa Mateos after he won Mexico's esteemed National Arts Prized in 1977, "I am certain that if I have any merit, it is knowing how to make good use of my eyes, to guide the camera in its task of capturing not only colors, lights and shadows, but the movement of life itself." Text in Spanish and English.

Surfing Photographs from the Eighties Taken by Jeff DivineSurfing Photographs from the Eighties Taken by Jeff Divine

Published by T. Adler Books.
Introduction by Scott Hulet. Foreword by Jamie Brisick.

On the heels of 2006's hugely popular Surfing Photographs from the Seventies, T. Adler Books now releases the companion volume, Surfing Photographs from the Eighties Taken by Jeff Divine. The 1980s were a tumultuous period in surf history, as the "everything's groovy" communalism of the previous decade was blown apart into splinter groups. Professionals, rebels, punks and world travelers all banged the drum for their personal vision of surfing. The result was loud and vivid and drenched in fluorescence and neon. Photographer Jeff Divine was on the case, documenting the changes from surfing's twin power poles: southern California and the north shore of Oahu. Divine's access to these scenes, earned from 15 years on the sand and in the water, infuse this volume with authenticity, as an insider look into the period's most definitive moments. Christian Fletcher's strident aerial sorties; the first high-dollar sponsored contests; the west coast cool of Tom Curren; the back alley attitude of Sunny Garcia: Divine brought it all home on Kodachrome 64. And while Wall Street and Madison Avenue were doing their damnedest to monetize the style and freedom of surfing, the sublimity of the ride itself remained unsullied.
Jeff Divine has been photographing surfing for 44 years, and has been the subject of three surf photography monographs. Among his previous books are Surfing Photographs from the Seventies (T. Adler, 2006).

Taj Forer: Threefold SunTaj Forer: Threefold Sun

Published by Charta.
Text by Carol Mavor.

In Threefold Sun, photographer Taj Forer takes a warm and thoughtful look at some people and places influenced by the work of Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925), the German artist-philosopher who gave the world not just his work and writing, but Waldorf schools and biodynamic farming. Forer's color photographs of laundry lines, garden hoses, straw forts, rubber boots and kitchen tables are at once beautiful and banal. Beauty is where it might be expected (a wall of sunny children's paintings, a tree house), but more often where it wouldn't be (a slightly deflated yellow ball in a cement play yard, a sledding hill without enough snow). Utopia is waiting in a patch of sun, a smudge of mud, a chalkboard message professing heavenly joy, a little bit of blood in the small nostrils of a boy baptized with everyday dirt. Forer received his BA in Photography from Sarah Lawrence College in 2003, and is a 2007 Artist in Residence at the North Carolina Contemporary Art Museum; he is a co-founder of Daylight Magazine, an award-winning biannual publication of contemporary documentary photography.

Surfing San Onofre to Point Dume: Photographs by Don JamesSurfing San Onofre to Point Dume: Photographs by Don James

1936-1942

Published by T. Adler Books.

Back in print and available from D.A.P. for the first time, this beloved best-seller tells the story of the heady and innocent years of Santa Monica's nascent surf scene just prior to America's entry into World War II. Beautifully designed, this intimate, album-sized collection of photographs, printed in rich duotones and evocative color, captures the optimism and experimentation, the styles, the flirtatiousness and the freedoms taken--all from an insider's point of view. They were made by the young Don James, a teenager who documented the scene with his father's old Kodak folding camera when he wasn't up on a longboard himself. Out in the surf, down on the sand, aboard somebody's boat, dancing around a campfire, back-flipping off the lifeguard stand, collecting lobster, drinking at the bar and generally wearing as little as possible, here are the regulars of the southern California beach scene, un-self-conscious and perpetually glamorous, alongside loving portraits of the beach and the ocean themselves.

Rolling The R'sRolling The R's

Published by Kaya/Muae.
By R. Zamora Linmark.

Illuminated by pop fantasies, Donna Summer disco tracks and teen passion, the fiercely earnest characters in Rolling the R's come to life against the background of burning dreams and neglect in a small 1970s Hawaiian community. In this daring first novel, tour-de-force experiments in narrative structure, pidgin and perspective roll every “are” and throw new light on gay identity and the trauma of assimilation. Rolling the R's goes beyond “coming of age” and “coming out” to address the realities of cultural confusion, prejudice and spiraling levels of desire in humorous yet haunting portraits that are, as Matthew Stadler writes, “stylish, shameless and beautiful.”

Yelena Yemchuk: GidroparkYelena Yemchuk: Gidropark

Published by Damiani.

Ukrainian-born, Brooklyn-based photographer and painter Yelena Yemchuk is most commonly known for her fashion and portrait photographs, which have appeared in Italian and Japanese Vogue, V, the New Yorker and The New York Times. Yet her personal work, which she usually shoots on a 35-mm camera while traveling around the globe, has rarely been seen. The photographs in this book were taken over three summers between 2005 and 2008 at Gidropark, an old amusement park (Yemchuk has called it "an Eastern European version of Coney Island") in Kiev that she often visited when she was growing up. Amid the park's beaches, sports grounds and woodlands, leisure becomes curiously otherworldly, with picnicking families stripped down to their bathing suits (or even less) taking on a Fellini-esque quality in Yemchuk's wistful shots.

John Jonas Gruen: The Sixties Young in the HamptonsJohn Jonas Gruen: The Sixties Young in the Hamptons

Published by Charta.
Essays by Richard I. Barons. Preface by John Jonas Gruen.

The Hamptons, the string of idyllic country beach towns on eastern Long Island within a morning's drive of New York City, haven't always been reserved for the rich and famous: some of the twentieth-century's best-known cultural figures weren't rich or famous yet when they arrived there. In 1960, the writer and photographer John Jonas Gruen and his wife, the painter Jane Wilson, bought a carriage house in Water Mill, a hamlet between Southampton and East Hampton. Gruen, then an art and music critic for the New York Herald Tribune, and later a regular contributor to The New York Times, ARTnews and Vogue, had long been an avid photographer, and it gave him enormous pleasure to take pictures of his family and friends at every possible opportunity. Thus it was that The Sixties: Young in the Hamptons was born, a visual memoir of the young Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns, Willem de Kooning, Marisol, Jim Dine, Leonard Bernstein, Frank O'Hara, John Ashbery, James Schuyler, Kenneth Koch, Stella Adler and Edward Albee, among many other gifted visitors.

Lucien Gauthier, Photographer

Published by T.Adler Books.
Edited by Tom Adler, Lisa Barnett. Text by Serge Kakou.

The travel narratives of European explorers who discovered Tahiti in the eighteenth century gave birth to the myth of a forgotten Eden. From Bougainville to Gauguin, many adventurous spirits would seek out her shores. In 1904, Lucien Gauthier, enchanted by the island, decided to become a photographer. The collection of images that he would assemble over the next 17 years illustrates the myth of a peaceable paradise. His work, which celebrates the beauty both of Tahitian women and of its verdant landscapes, expresses his personal vision of an ideal world. Today he is recognized as the creator of a photographic icon: the Vahine.
Lucien Gauthier (1875-1971) was born in Paris and left for California at the age of 27. Upon discovering Tahiti in 1904, he was immediately seduced. He quickly mastered the métier of photographer and opened a portrait studio, which allowed him to meet the local beauties, who posed for him both clothed and nude. Sumptuous landscapes completed his collection of images. His body of work was widely diffused in the form of postcards, establishing his fame. He left Tahiti in 1921 and settled in the suburbs of Paris, where he continued to sell prints. For the Colonial Exposition of 1931, he published a collection of his most beautiful photos. Upon seeing this book, Matisse went to visit Gauthier and left his company determined to travel to Tahiti. Gauthier's door would remain open to all Tahitians at heart, up to his death in 1971. This book situates his body of work in the history of photography in Tahiti from 1847 onward, and offers a selection of his most beautiful images, chosen from among 800 original negatives. The sole archive to have remained intact, it offers a rare view into Tahitian photography of the epoch.
