Alec Soth - I know how furiously your heart is beating
We have a few signed copies in stock
Taking its name from a line in the Wallace Stevens’ poem “The Gray Room,” Alec Soth’s latest book is a lyrical exploration of the limitations of photographic representation. While these large-format colour photographs are made all over the
world, they aren’t about any particular place or population. By a process of intimate and often extended engagement, Soth’s portraits and images of his subject’s surroundings involve an enquiry into the extent to which a photographic likeness
can depict more than the outer surface of an individual, and perhaps even plumb the depths of something unknowable about both the sitter and the photographer.
Published to coincide with four solo exhibitions, New York, San Francisco, Minneapolis and Berlin.
I came across the work of this Russian photographer via some online photobook sites, and am pleased that I did. I have copies of five of her latest books in stock. All the books are handmade and assembled by the artist and are produced in as
a signed limited edition and broach a range of subject matter, her imagery is predominately photocollage.
Each is presented using different techniques from the relatively simple loose leaf’s and folder of "Lullaby for a Bride", to the complex use of paper folds and open out panels of "Let me Fall again". "Men Floating in the air" has an
elaborate accordion style binding, and "Red Giselle" binds images of different sizes. Her other book "Nautilus" with its loosely inserted gatefold pages and hand cut portholes giving an insight to what is to come and what has been.
Anyone planning to make their own books should examine Borissova's books to explore different and varied techniques for presentation.
For over thirty years, Michael Kenna has photographed temples, shrines, gardens, seascapes and landscapes, in black and white, throughout Japan. Ten years ago, he also began to photograph female nudes in various locations in Japan. A
selection of these photographs was unveiled to the public for the first time at Paris Photo in November 2018.

From Morris Men and Tortoise Keepers, Don's and undergraduates, the boat race and thrashing, Martin Parr, one of Britain's best-known contemporary photographers, and President of Magnum, the world-famous photographic agency has undertaken a
photo-documentary book project. Oxford is a collection of around 100 photographs documenting an academic year in the life of the university. They capture the day-to-day life of the colleges and University at work and play, and the colourful
and arcane rituals that make it so distinctive.
David Bailey - Sumo
This big book of Bailey is the culmination of an incredible career, the result of two years’ worth of research into his personal archives. Through penetrating pictures of the beautiful and the notorious, the idolized and the powerful,
friends and family, writers, artists, and fellow photographers, Bailey presents a sweeping cultural history of the last 60 years. Featured subjects include Andy Warhol, Salvador Dalí, Kate Moss, Nelson Mandela, Francis Bacon, Zaha Hadid, the
Rolling Stones, Jack Nicholson, Brigitte Bardot, Margaret Thatcher, and hundreds more.
