The long awaited new book from Stephen Gill has arrived

Night Procession - Stephen Gill (Signed)

At Photo London 2017 Stephen Gill took the unusual step of giving a talk about the making of his book “Night Procession” before the book had even been printed. Stephen spoke about his vision for the book, about his thought process for capturing his images and the techniques he used to make the final images within.  I was fortunate to have been there and found his talk fascinating, although as is usual when I get advance information on one of Stephen’s projects, I was a little frustrated that I would have to wait before I could get my hands on the finished book.
In 2014 Stephen relocated his family from East London to rural south Sweden and soon realised on his many walks in this open, flat and apparently bleak landscape was teaming with nocturnal activity. The tell-tale signs of animal footprints and gnawed foliage, clusters of feathers and egg shells got Stephens imagination racing. He began to imagine the animals and their nocturnal forages for food, and encounters with one another, driven on by their senses, in the thick of the night.  Using the clues left by the animals, Stephen placed cameras equipped with motion sensors and invisible infrared flash to record the nightly activity of the wildlife. The motion sensors in effect allowing the animals to photograph themselves, whilst we were sleeping and has recorded beautiful dream like glimpses into their nocturnal world.
Before relocating to Sweden, Stephen had begun researching the use of plants and berries to make dyes and stains which he could use in a future project.  When he went to collect his cameras from their overnight locations Stephen also collected samples of plant matter, leaves, grasses, berries from which he made his own dyes.  His prints were then soaked in his hand made dyes to stain and introduce colour and a piece of the locality into these black and white images, these master prints then had to be dried and pressed to remove and distortions to the paper caused by the soaking in the dye before being re-photographed to produce the final images.
Stephen has often incorporated elements from the environment in which he takes his photographs into his finished images, with “Hackney Wick” the images were taken on a cheap camera purchased at a Hackney Wick boot sale, then he combined images with pressed flowers and seeds for “Hackney Flowers” and by burying prints in the ground, to let the earth and minerals react with the image, for the book “Buried” of which the finished books were also buried in the ground. For “Talking with Ants” Stephen placed dust, seeds and objects found, inside the camera chamber to create images that were a juxtaposition of imagery and scale, part photograph, part in camera photogram; with “Best Before End” Gill soaked part processed colour films in locally sourced energy drinks in an attempt to reflect and respond to the intensity of inner city life by focusing on the phenomenal rise of energy drinks “(Gill 2014).  The film reacted with the drinks to create colour shifts and softened the emulsion to allow it to be manually stretched and distorted.
Stephen Gill is one of Britain’s best contemporary photographers, and although contemporary photography is not to everyone’s taste, I would strongly recommend this to those of you who do enjoy this genre of photography.          
Night Procession has been presented with the 2017 HARIBAN AWARD. List Price £48.00, Introductory Price £43.00

William Eggleston - Election Eve In 1977 William Eggleston released Election Eve, his first and most elaborate artist’s book, containing 100 original prints in two leather-bound volumes housed in a linen box. It was published by Caldecot Chubb in New York in an edition of only five, and has since become Eggleston’s rarest collectible book. This new Steidl edition recreates the full original sequence of photos in a single volume, making it available to the wider public for the first time.

Election Eve contains images made in October 1976 during Eggleston’s pilgrimage from Memphis to the small town of Plains, Georgia, the home of Jimmy Carter who in November 1976 was elected 39th President of the United States. Eggleston began photographing even before he left Memphis and depicted the surrounding countryside and villages of Sumter Country, before he reached Plains. His photos of lonesome roads, train tracks, cars, gas stations and houses are mostly empty of people and form an intuitive, unsettling portrait of Plains, starkly different to the idealized image of it subsequently promoted by the media. ListPrice £75.00 Introductory Price £67.50

To celebrate the release of this new Eggleston book we are offering discounts on other available Eggleston books,

Democratic Forest This ten-volume set containing more than a thousand photographs is drawn from a body of twelve thousand pictures made by Eggleston in the 1980s. Following an opening volume of work in Louisiana, which serves as a visual preface, the remaining books cover Eggleston’s travels from his familiar ground in Memphis and Tennessee to Dallas, Pittsburgh, Miami, Boston, the pastures of Kentucky, and as far as the Berlin Wall. The final volume leads the viewer back to the South of small towns, cotton fields, the Civil War battlefield of Shiloh and the home of Andrew Jackson, the President from Tennessee. List Price £420, discount price £357

Los Alamos Revisited contains the definitive edit of William Eggleston’s celebrated Los Alamos series, and closes a fascinating photographic story that began in the mid-1960s. Between 1965 and 1974 William Eggleston and Walter Hopps drove together through the USA, Eggleston taking photographs, Hopps at the wheel. During these travels the title Los Alamos was born. More than thirty years later Eggleston, Hopps, Caldecot Chubb and the photographer’s son Winston Eggleston edited the photographs into a set of five portfolio boxes of dye-transfer prints.
In 2011, the photographer’s son William Eggleston III and Mark Holborn reviewed the now complete set of negatives, finalizing the sequence with Winston Eggleston at Steidl in 2012. This three volume set Los Alamos Revisited presents this sequence in its entirety, and updates the 2003 Scalo book Los Alamos. List Price £220, discount price £175.00

At ZenithAt Zenith constitutes a calm and experimental intermezzo from Eggleston’s familiar loudness and intensity of colours. The photographer pointed his camera at the sky to focus on the clouds rolling by. List Price £38.00, discount price £30.00

Guide William Eggleston's Guide was the first one-man show of colour photographs ever presented at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, and the Museum's first publication of colour photography. The reception was divided and passionate. The book and show unabashedly forced the art world to deal with colour photography, a medium scarcely taken seriously at the time, and with the vernacular content of a body of photographs that could have been but definitely weren't some average person's Instamatic pictures from the family album. These photographs heralded a new mastery of the use of colour as an integral element of photographic composition. Bound in a textured cover inset with a photograph of a tricycle and stamped with yearbook-style gold lettering, the Guide contained 48 images edited down from 375 shot between 1969 and 1971 and displayed a deceptively casual, actually superrefined look at the surrounding world. The Museum of Modern Art has made new colour separations from the original 35mm slides, producing a facsimile edition in which the colour will be freshly responsive to the photographer's intentions. List Price 28.00, discounted price £22.00

The Last Testement - Jonas Bendiksen

Imagined as a sequel to the Old and New Testaments of the Bible, The Last Testament features visual accounts and stories of seven men around the world who claim to be the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. Building on biblical form and structure, chapters dedicated to each Jesus include excerpts of their scriptural testaments, laying out their theology and demands on mankind in their own words. Jonas Bendiksen takes at face value that each one is the true Messiah returned to Earth, to forge an account that is a work of apocalyptic journalism and compelling artistic imagination.

Jonas Bendiksen (born in Tønsberg, Norway, 1977) began his career at the age of nineteen as an intern at Magnum Photos’ London office. His first book, Satellites (Aperture, 2006) was followed up with The Places We Live (Aperture, 2008). Bendiksen’s awards include an International Center of Photography Infinity Award, 2003; Telenor International Culture Prize, 2008; and several World Press Photo and Pictures of the Year awards. His work has been widely published by GEO, the Sunday Times Magazine, and National Geographic magazine. He has been a member of Magnum Photos since 2004. List Price £40.00, Discount price £28.00
