Early Black and White
By Saul Leiter
$90 — Purchase Book
"The two volumes of Leiter’s highly anticipated Early Black and White collects a largely unseen trove of remarkable black and white work from the late-40s and 50s. Divided into two volumes, Exterior and Interior, the books contain nudes, portraits, still-lifes and street photography brimming with elegant beauty and understated grace." From Adam Bell's review on photo-eye Blog
Photographs by Nicolò Degiorgis
$26 — Purchase Book
From Nicolò Degiorgis, photographer of the Aperture / Paris Photo photobook award winning Hidden Islam, Camera Cubrica is a small photobook in a form that may be familiar to many — the magic folding photo cube often seen with an assortment of family photos in the 80s and 90s. The project was a commission for the tiny Piccolo Museion Cubo di Garutti, a small cube-spaced exhibition space located in the Don Bosco neighborhood of Bolzano. Degiorgis transformed the tiny gallery into a pinhole camera, taking a series of photographs of the park and its visitors which appear on the sides of the photo cube, and also includes instructions for making your own pinhole camera. See the folding cube in action here.
By Anouk Kruithof
$45 Signed — Purchase Book
Untitled: (I’ve taken too many photos / I’ve never taken a photo) from Anouk Kruithof presents not just a collection of images, but an in-depth conversation into the process of making images, how and why we like images, and how we edit them. Kruithof put up a flyer on the streets of Brooklyn looking to enlist the help of someone who had never taken a photograph. A young man named Harrison Medina answered her ad, and the two of them started the process of editing 300 of Kruithof's images to a selection of 75, recording their conversation along the way, creating this book and exhibition. Kruithof's previous publications exploring image making and the art of the photobook have become highly collectible. Untitled includes a newsprint book, a fold out poster of all 300 images that started the project and a loose print of Kruithof and Medina editing photographs.

By Andy Sewell
$105 Signed — Purchase Book
Something Like a Nest from Andy Sewell looks at the intersection of idealism and modern realities of the English countryside. "It’s a quiet, sophisticated book that somehow manages to tick all the boxes of what rural England means in the twenty-first century. With its multi-layered approach, it’s neither predictable nor didactic; a book that takes you on a journey around contemporary England and lets you get on and off wherever you please." —Colin Pantall for photo-eye Blog
