War Primer 2
By Oliver Chanarin and Adam Broomberg
Mack, 2011

Beautiful copy in new condition.
$660 — SOLD

"War Primer 2 is a limited edition book that physically inhabits the pages of Bertolt Brecht's remarkable 1955 publication War Primer.

The original is a collection of Brecht's newspaper clippings, each accompanied by a four-line poem that he called Photo-epigrams. It was the culmination of almost three decades of intermittent activity. The title deliberately recalls the textbooks used to teach elementary school children how to read; Brecht's book is a practical manual, demonstrating how to 'read' or 'translate' press photographs. Brecht was profoundly uneasy about the affirmative role played by the medium within the political economy of capitalism and referred to press photographs as hieroglyphics in need of decoding.

War Primer 2 is the belated sequel. While Brecht's War Primer was concerned with images of the Second World War, War Primer 2 is concerned with the images of conflict generated by both sides of the so-called 'War on Terror'." —the publisher



Inventario 1985-1997
By Sarah Moon
Ediciones Universidad de Salamanca, Salamanca, 1998

New shrink wrapped copy with tiny spots of shelf-wear to corners.
$100.00 — Purchase Book

"In images even more textured and dreamlike than the early color work for which she is most famous, Sarah Moon's recent photographs are highly evocative b&w prints from Polaroid materials. This exceptional, rare collection is finely printed and contains an imponderable, sensually rich series of photographs seamlessly drawn from Moon's personal travels and her professional work." —the publisher



Moonmilk
By Ryan McGinley
Morel Publishing, 2009

In near perfect condition.
$215 — Purchase Book

"Over the past year, Ryan McGinley and his crew explored huge underground caves, venturing into unknown territory and seeking out spectacular natural spaces — some previously undocumented.

The title, Moonmilk, alludes to the crystalline deposits found on the walls of many caves; it was once believed that this substance was formed by light from celestial bodies passing through rock into darkened worlds below." —the publisher



Momentary Resorts
By Walter Niedermayr
Cantz, 1999

New shrink wrapped copy with some tears to shrink wrap and small signs of shelf-wear to corners and bottom edge.
$1200 — Purchase Book

"In Walter Niedermayr's large-format landscapes, ski lifts and lodges dot the Alpine mountainsides of Europe, generating a Gursky-like sense of dislocation. However, Niedermayr's own intriguing taste for narrative, and a mesmerizing repetition, make these images uniquely his own." —the publisher
