Paul Graham Anniversary and new book from Albert Watson

A Shimmer of Possibility

10 Years ago steidl published a shimmer of possibility by Paul Graham, regarded as one of the defining photography books of the 21st century. Awarded the Paris Photo-Aperture Prize for the most significant photobook published in the past 15 years, the original 12 volume set sold out in 10 weeks, and has been out of print since. To celebrate this tenth anniversary the Book is being republished by Mack books in a limited quanity available around mid November.
Shimmer comprises 12 individual books, each volume a photographic short story of everyday life in today's America. Modest sequences of images, such as a man smoking a cigarette while waiting for a bus in Las Vegas, or a woman collecting her mail from a mailbox in leafy New England, reflect the poetic ebb and flow of life.
Whilst the 12 books are all an identical size, they vary in length from just a single photograph to 60 pages of images made at one street intersection. The radical form of this multi volume publication embraces the unique nature of Graham's work, giving the flow of life precedence over conclusiveness, where nothing much happens, but nothing is foreclosed either, where everything shimmers with possibility. This new edition is bound in the same colour as opposed to the original where each book was bound in a different colour.

I asked Paul Graham, at the end of his Talk at PhotoLondon this year, if after he died he was to be remembered for only one body of work, what would he like that work to be, he replied A Shimmer of Possibilities.

If you are a fan of Paul Graham, or a collector who missed this first time around I strongly advise making an advance order as I expect sales to go the same way as the original publication.

Advance Order this set for £275 (usual retail price £300) we have 1 original unopened copy of the original publication available with 1 volumed signed by Paul Graham £1750

Taschen annouce two new photography collectors editions.

Kaos by Albert Watson
KAOS presents a kaleidoscopic overview of Watson’s career to date and the dazzling array of subjects, objects, people, and places he has encountered along the way. A skillfully curated survey of a uniquely diverse, dynamic portfolio, it spans nearly half a century of photography.From Watson’s breakthrough portrait of Alfred Hitchcock for the Christmas 1973 edition of Harper’s Bazaar to a 2016 shot of Kanye West, each photograph reverberates with tightly coiled power, tension, and poetry. This remarkable collection is accompanied by an essay from the recently retired head of photographs at Christie’s, Philippe Garner, and extensive quotes from Watson, as well as dozens of previously unpublished Polaroids, culled from Watson’s personal archives. The result is a defining document of the “photographer’s photographer,” iridescent in its graphic, often cinematic allure, and irresistible in its eclectic glory.
This numbered collectors edition is signed by Albert Watson and comes in its own custom clamshell box, in a limited edition of just 1000 copies, there is an art edition available please email for more details. Collectors edition initial price £1150 rising to £1600 after Christmas

Picture Perfect by Mert and Piggot
After a chance meeting in 1994 the collaboration that is Mert and Piggot have become one of fashion most sought after photographers. Mert and Marcus shape the global image of such renowned brands as Giorgio Armani, Roberto Cavalli, Fendi, Miu Miu, Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent, Givenchy and Lancôme, and public figures including Lady Gaga, Madonna, Jennifer Lopez, Linda Evangelista, Gisele Bündchen, Björk, Angelina Jolie, and Rihanna. Their photographs encompass a wide range of styles and influences but are renowned particularly for their use of digitized augmentation of images, and a fascination for strong, sexually charged, confident female subjects.

This numbered collectors editions is signed by both Mert and Piggot and comes in its own custom calmshell box, in a limited edition of just 1000 copies, there is an art edition available please email for more details. Collectors edition initial price £450 rising to £550 after Christmas.

We now have copies of the new Michael Kenna book Abrazzo in stock  “Abruzzo’s heritage, together with its impressive natural scenery. In his photographs of historic rural landscapes, there is an air of melancholy, which accompanies memories from the past. His images of ruins stir up feelings of passing time, of the constantly evolving  ties between history and nature.”

This beautiful first edition comes in its own custom slip case.

There was also a special edition available limited to just 100 signed and numbered copies which was sold out pre-publication I have been able to obtain another copy of the Special edition from another dealer which is priced at a premium.
