"Gail Albert Halaban: Paris Views" is a continuation of Halaban's 2012 series "Out My Window." In this new set of images, Halaban shifts her focus from New York to Paris--while continuing to steady her gaze through the windows of her neighbors and others in the community. The photographs, taken between 2012 and 2013, feature cinematic atmospheres and intimate domestic stills. Through Halaban's lens, the viewer is welcomed into the private worlds of ordinary people. The photographs in "Paris Views" explore the conventions and tensions of urban lifestyles, the blurring between reality and fantasy, feelings of isolation in the city and the intimacies of home and daily life. In these meticulously directed, window-framed versions of reality, Halaban allows the viewer to create his or her own fictions about the characters, activities and interiors illuminated within. This invitation to imagine renders the characters and settings both personal and mysterious. Gail Albert Halaban (born 1970) received a MFA in photography from Yale. She has taught at the Pasadena Art Center, the International Center of Photography and Yale, among other notable institutions. She has been included in group shows and featured in solo exhibitions internationally and received a Lucie award in 2007. Her most recent book, "Out My Window," was published by PowerHouse in 2012. She is represented by Edwynn Houk Gallery in New York.
Out My Window
Author: Gail Albert Halaban
Publisher: Power House Books
Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window comes to mind when looking at Gail Albert Halaban's book of photographers of city dwellers peering into their neighbours' windows, Out My Window. The photographs are views across streets, alleyways and airshafts, peering through windows to reveal intimate portraits. These beautiful voyeuristic pictures capture both the intimacy and remoteness of living in proximity to so many strangers. Out My Window can be seen as an exploration of the contradictory impulses of metropolitan life: the desire to connect and the desire to be left alone.
Paris is the City of Light, love, and savoir vivre. And this world-class capital is surely one of the planet's most photographed destinations, whether by tourists snapping a quick souvenir shot or professionals with high-end cameras. The brief preview we provide here shows how special this city really is. Paris has never been showcased as impressively, meaningfully, or dramatically as it is by the French photographer Serge Ramelli. His vision of the city -like all of his images - is unmistakably inspired by cinema. In addition to his second passion, filmmaking (which he does when he's not taking pictures), he is also fascinated by the films of Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Ridley Scott. Ramelli's interpretation of the bustling metropolis of Paris is at once impressive and fabulous. Pulsing with life both day and night, the city appears nearly devoid of people--a heavily symbolic place with many facets to explore, shining with an inimitable light. SELLING POINTS: * The metropolis of Paris, presented with Serge Ramelli's dramatic vision * A fabulous and fascinating tour of the city in an incomparable light * Film and photography meld into a black-and-white work of art * Now in a small flexicover 100 black and white photographs

Matthew Pillsbury: City Stages offers a paean to the craft and visionary potential of large- format, black-and-white photography as well as to the vibrancy of the cultural landscape at a transitional momenta moment in which our very relationship to that landscape is increas - ingly mediated by omnipresent screens. Over the past decade, Pillsbury has built several extensive bodies of workScreen Lives, Hours, and City Stagesthat deal with different facets of contemporary metropolitan life and the passage of time. Working with black-and-white 8-by-10 film and long exposures, Pillsbury captures a range of psychologically charged experiences in the urban environment, from isolationtuned into the omnipresent screens of our tablets, laptops, televisions, and phonesto crowded museums, parades, cathedrals, and even protests. Working primarily in New York but with forays to Paris, London, Venice, and other sites, the precise and concrete rendering of cityscapes, iconic landmarks, and interior spaces in his images provides a stage-like setting for the performance of human activity. Thanks to the extended exposuressome as long as an hourthe actions of both individuals and crowds are blurred and transformed into pure gesture and energy. As writer Karl E. Johnson comments on the work, For Pillsbury, the act of seeing appears to double as a performance, if no more than the performance of life enacted in various spaces and timeframes. This monograph gathers for the first time selections from all three bodies of work, and spans ten years of the artists output.
Consider these facts. In Italy the right to worship, without discrimination, is enshrined within the constitution. There are 1.35 million Muslims in Italy and yet, officially, only eight mosques in the whole country. One consequence is that the Muslim population have accumulated a huge number of makeshift and temporary places of worship. These are housed in a variety of buildings including lock ups, garages, shops, warehouses and old factories. This shortage of places to worship is particularly acute in north east Italy - where the photographer Nicolò Degiorgis lives - home to many anti-Islamic campaigns headed by the right wing party Lega Nord. The dull images of the many and diverse buildings that house the makeshift mosques are printed on folded pages. You open up the gatefold to reveal the scenes inside the mosques, shot in full colour. The size of the gatherings varies, from large crowds who sometimes pray outside to a small room full to bursting, or to intimate groups of two or three Muslims. Degiorgis provides a fascinating glimpse of hidden world and leaves the conclusions about this project entirely in our own hands
What is a country? Acclaimed travel writer and Oxford geography don Nick Middleton brings to life the origins and histories of 50 states that, lacking international recognition and United Nations membership, exist on the margins of legitimacy in the global order.

Beautifully illustrated with 50 regional maps, each country is literally die-cut out of the page, offering a distinctive tactile experience while exploring these remarkable places.

"Chronologically examining the nature of his art within the context of mass media and photojournalism, this handsome volume charts the thirty-year career of the artist and photographer Christopher Williams (b. 1956). Featuring 100 color illustrations, the book also includes a trio of essays by authors Mark Godfrey, Roxana Marcoci, and Matthew S. Witkovsky that demonstrate how Williams, with high craft and a critical eye, deliberately engages yet reinterprets the conventions of photojournalism, picture archives, and commercial imagery through uncanny mimicry. Committed to the history of photography as a medium of art and intellectual inquiry, Williams's current series tackles the interplay of photography and cinema, upending viewer expectations and the role of spectacle"--
Author: Saul Leiter
Saul Leiter (1923-2013) has been hailed as one of the great pioneers of 20th century colour photography. His body of work spans more than 70 years and is in the collections of many important museums. With the landmark publication of his monographEarly Color (2006) his work at last came to the fore. The book was followed by numerous exhibitions, the largest of which was a major retrospective at Deichtorhallen in Hamburg (2012). In 2013, Thomas Leach made In No Great Hurry, a full-feature documentary film about Saul Leiter and his work. But Leiter was more than a great photographer; he was – and always had been – a prolific painter, though this side of his creative life received far less attention. One strand among his paintings is noticeable: the art of painting over prints of nudes that he himself photographed and printed. This publication reproduces over eighty such painted nudes, created over a period of over forty years. This long overdue book sheds light on the vitality and originality of Saul Leiter's art and his mastery of colour.

The best stories. A village that caresses the eye and attracted a host of artists at he turn of the twentieth century. A village whose heyday came in the middle of the 1950s, when a young Franco-Russian filmmaker brought cameras and crew to its sun dazzled beaches to make his first feature film: And God Created Woman. The shock wave created by Roger Vadim revealed a resplendent creature, a leg-end: Brigitte Bardot, rocketing to fame in the village she chose as her home, which would bask in the glory of those years forever. In its pearly haven, artists, film stars, playboys and top models would spend sun-soaked days and starry nights in affairs and adventures that have since entered the pages of history. In the Spirit of Saint-Tropez is illustrated with numerous previously unpublished photographs.
Speaking of Furniture
Author: Bebe Pritam Johnson, Warren Eames Johnson, Edward S. Cooke, Jr.
"An engaging history and examination of the studio furniture movement, Speaking of Furniture: Conversations with 14 American Masters is an informative, firsthand presentation of the creative processes of 14 diverse and highly accomplished artisan furniture makers: James Krenov, Wendell Castle, Jere Osgood, Judy Kensley McKie, David Ebner, Richard Scott Newman, Hank Gilpin, Alphonse Mattia, John Dunnigan, Wendy Maruyama, James Schriber, Timothy S. Philbrick, Michael Hurwitz and Thomas Hucker. Through these insightful and wide-ranging interviews, each describes his or her evolution as a furniture maker and reveals a uniquely personal approach to a craft characterized by its delicate and vital balance of concept and functionality. In his foreword, Edward S. Cooke, Jr., provides a succinct analysis of the American Studio Furniture movement and how the individuality of its practitioners contrasts with the constraints and task-specific demands of the traditional furniture trade. Author and furniture maker Roger Holmes offers an insider's perspective on the art and craft of producing exquisite contemporary furniture in his conversational Introduction and maintains that 'art or craft, this is very personal work' while emphasizing 'the fundamental connection between hand, mind, and the making of things.' The extraordinary range of exquisite and eclectic works presented in Speaking of Furniture is a feast for the eyes and a testimony to the makers' professionalism and mastery of their craft."--Rabat de la jaquette.
For the first time, Paris Photo presents an original journey within the galleries: "Paris Photo seen by ..." In 2012, Paris Photo entrusted David Lynch with the task of choosing from among the works exhibited by the gallery owners--an original way for the public to contemplate the works whilst at the same time discovering the artist's aesthetic universe." Julien Frydman, Director of Paris Photo, writes: "Looking at David Lynch's selection is a bit like visiting Paris Photo in his company; a dialogue begins; we do look at the works 'together, ' but first of all we look at them in a different way, through a 'Lynchian' filter. Our first perception undergoes a distortion, the reading becomes a plural one and reveals the metaphoric power of every image; I believe it will be the same for other visitors, only that Lynch's subconscious takes over: the body, the strangeness, the potential narrative and the ambiguity of the image are always present.
