Todd Hido: Intimate Distance is the first comprehensive monograph charting the career of acclaimed American photographer Todd Hido. Though he has published many smaller monographs of individual bodies of work, this gathers his most iconic images for the first time and brings a fresh perspective to his oeuvre with the inclusion of many unpublished photographs. Well-known for his photographs of landscapes and suburban housing across the United States, and for his use of luminous color, Hido casts a distinctly cinematic eye across all that he photographs, digging deep into his memory and imagination for inspiration. David Campany introduces the work and looks specifically at Hido's cinematic influences and the kind of spectatorship the work demands. The book is organized chronologically, showing how his series overlap in exciting, new ways. Also featured are short interviews with Hido about the making of each of his monographs. From exterior to interior, surface observations to subconscious investigations, landscapes to nudes, this mid-career survey reveals insight into Hido's practice and illustrates how his unique focus has developed and shifted over time.

"In this book, Todd Hido explores the genres of landscape, interiors, and nude photography, with an emphasis on creating images from a personal perspective. Through words and photographs, he reveals insight into his own practice and discusses a wide range of creative issues, including mining one's own memory and experience as inspiration; using light, texture, and detail for greater impact; exploring the narrative potential activated when sequencing images; and creating powerful stories with emotional weight and beauty. Gregory Halpern, a student of Todd Hido, provides the introduction. Learn how to: create landscapes and interiors with emotional charge that suggest a larger story; evoke mood and feeling through color and composition; work with subjects and different environments to capture dramatic portraits"--P.

Informal Beauty explores the photographic works of Paul Nash (1889 1946), one of the most significant British artists of the 20th century. Best known for his evocative paintings of war-ravaged landscapes and his quasi-Surrealist visions of the English countryside, Nash was also a consummate photographer, who believed that the camera could reveal aspects of the world that the painter could not. Beginning in 1930, he regularly experimented with photography, working with a No. 1A pocket Kodak series 2 camera. Including a highly informative contextual essay by Simon Grant, Informal Beauty explores the experimental nature of Nash s output and the intensity and power of his photographic vision."

Mitch Dobrowner has been chasing storms since 2005. Working with professional storm chaser Roger Hill, Dobrowner has traveled throughout Western and Midwestern America to capture nature in its full fury, making extraordinary images of monsoons, tornados, and massive thunderstorms with the highest standard of craftsmanship and in the tradition of Ansel Adams. Dobrowner, a graphic designer by trade, says, As I researched the subject of storm systems and how they formed, I came to appreciate the complexity of these large structured super-cellsmassive storms with deep, rotating updrafts that sometimes spawn tornadoes. As a photographer, I always count myself lucky to get to the right place at the right time. Dobrowners storm series has attracted considerable media interest (National Geographic, Time, New York Times Magazine, among others) and is presented in Storms in a deluxe, largeformat yet affordable edition. The book features an introduction by Gretel Ehrlich that focuses on the phenomenon of storms and on the landscape tradition of the American West.

Far Too Close is a visual meditation on distance, both physical and emotional, of proximity in photography, of closeness to a subject and remoteness from a place. Applying a dark mesmerizing aesthetic which conveys in her images a heightened presence as real as it is poetic, Hoogland Ivanow explores the relationship between travel and returning home by interweaving family portraits and interiors of home with landscapes of some of the most remote and far flung locations. Over seven years she travelled to Siberia, Sakhalin Island north of Japan, Tierra del Fuego on the southern tip of Argentina, and the Kola Peninsula in Russian Lapland. Each of these places has its own dark history and has been the focus of dispute and discontent and highlights their location at the very ends of the earth.

A definitive and comprehensive survey of the work of one of America's best known and most acclaimed photographers. Renowned for his melancholic, dramatic, and painterly images of small-town America, Gregory Crewdson has evolved over a near thirty-year career into one of the world's most acclaimed and recognizable photographers. With a meticulous approach that has been likened to that of a film director, Crewdson typically works with a large crew and extremely technical sets to achieve a remarkably deep, atmospheric, and textured perspective. The mood of his images is unique, with a palette of twilights and mid-tones that complements a range of locations and models that create a vision of America at once familiar and haunting, bizarre and reassuring--his vision seems in line with those of Edward Hopper and David Lynch. Collected here together for the first time are every image from each of his many series of work, presented in chronological sequence from his earliest work and the little-seen black-and-white images of Fireflies to more recent masterpieces such as Beneath the Roses and Sanctuary. With a running narrative of short stories written specially to accompany each series by fellow Brooklynite Jonathan Lethem, an introduction by the Chief Curator of the Guggenheim Nancy Spector, and an interview between Melissa Harris and the photographer focusing on his unique process and elaborate techniques, this is the definitive monograph on the work of a true master of contemporary photography.

Erwin Olaf's approach to storytelling is uniquely evocative and enticingly ambiguous. Critic Francis Hodgson writes of Olaf's images, "They lead us to a "Stimmung" (a sense of atmosphere) which is broad enough to repay many second readings of the pictures and so keep us viewers interested." In this presentation of his most recent work, Olaf expands on his established, highly polished and stylized color studio images to include a series drawn from his sculptural video installation, "Keyholes"; a group of black-and-white images he has exhibited as carbon prints; and photographs created on location in Berlin--a departure from the constructed mises-en-scene of earlier work produced in his Amsterdam studio. "Erwin Olaf: Volume II" showcases the artist at the height of his powers, as an artisan of atmosphere and a craftsman who uses high polish to both perverse and seductive effect. Erwin Olaf (born 1959) is a Dutch photographer known for his highly stylized, daring and often provocative work addressing social issues and taboos. He is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Johannes Vermeer Award (2011), a Lucie Award (2008) and Photographer of the Year in the International Color Awards (2006). His work is shown in museums and galleries around the world. Olaf also received a commission to design the new national side of the Dutch Euro, launched in 2013.

"The work in Roaming appears arrestingly different than that in Todd Hido's previous two monographs. It is as if, having spent so many nights outside the eerie, brightly lit suburban tract homes featured in House Hunting and Outskirts, he has suddenly put his foot on the gas pedal and driven into the next day. But these landscapes continue Hido's mastery in portraying the most mundane scenes with a menacing air of expectancy. These unpeopled pictures, often taken through a car windshield, are so effective in creating tension they might almost have been staged. But in fact they are taken "as seen"; the telegraph poles, the straggling tree, the road leading nowhere are all exactly as encountered by Hido as he drove through Eastern Washington State, the California Central Valley, Indiana, South Louisiana and beyond." -- Publisher description.
