Civil Rights—and voting—inspiration in 'Leonard Freed: Black in White America'

Civil Rights—and voting—inspiration in 'Leonard Freed: Black in White America'

This timely photograph—of Black Washington, DC-area citizens waiting in line to vote in the 1964 Presidential election—is reproduced from Black in White America: 1963–1965, Reel Art Press's new, expanded and redesigned edition of photographer Leonard Freed's seminal 1968 civil rights photo-essay. Other photographs capture such pivotal moments in the civil rights movement as the 1963 March on Washington and the Selma to Montgomery marches, in addition to ordinary scenes of bravery, fatigue, endurance and wit. In his Foreword, fellow Magnum photographer Eli Reed writes, "Leonard was one of the doorkeepers to the historical reality of the times.… The book was an honest directive that captured the realities of normal Black people. It was close to an ultimate inside view while dealing in real time seconds, minutes and hours of the highlights and difficulties day after day, well beyond belief. The photographs were a continual visual truth, leaving no doubt as to what was happening when Leonard’s camera shutter captured those moments in question."

The joys of Hell on Earth in 'Marilyn Manson by Perou'

The joys of Hell on Earth in 'Marilyn Manson by Perou'

Featured spreads are reproduced from Marilyn Manson by Perou: 21 Years in Hell, easily our favorite 2020 book for the pagan holiday meant to celebrate the dead and ward off ghosts. A collection of 325 color photographs (many of which have never been published before) by Manson's foremost portrait photographer of the past two decades, this is, in every way, a cult object. Clearly, Manson loves the camera and the camera loves Manson. The book also contains a running interview, in which Manson comments back and forth with Perou on the photographs and the moods, ideas and experiences that came with them. In one exchange about the power of the image, Manson says, "There’s a big difference between someone who is a photographer as an artist and someone who happens to just have a camera you know? And granted, good luck to aspiring photographers, but just because you have a fucking Instagram page does not make you Perou. That’s your quote." And so it is.

Music lovers, rejoice! 'Queen: The Neal Preston Photographs' releases worldwide today.

Music lovers, rejoice! 'Queen: The Neal Preston Photographs' releases worldwide today.

Featured spreads are from Queen: The Neal Preston Photographs, Reel Art Press's highly anticipated "official book" on the band—with texts by Brian May, Roger Taylor and Neal Preston, who started documenting Queen on- and off-stage in 1977. "Many of the pictures in this book have never been seen, and as a fan, I was amazed at the treasure trove of unseen gold I uncovered in the files," Preston writes. "It is some of the best work I have ever done. Taking these photographs allowed me to get to know Freddie, Roger, John and Brian in a different way than other people because I watched through a camera, which does not lie. It doesn’t have to. It’s invisible.
I think Freddie would be proud of this book. I can picture myself walking down the airplane aisle and he’s looking at it very intensely. I ask him if he likes it and he looks right at me and says, 'It's beautiful darling, it just needs to be bigger. . .' I can literally hear him saying that as I write this."
