Die Mauer ist Weg!

Markus Schaden

"On the spot. A historic moment in history and special for Germans like me who were sitting faithless (breathless?) in front of the TV screen. The night of the Berlin Wall Fall at the checkpoint Bornholmer Strasse. We’ve seen only a small amount of footage from Bornholmer Strasse, but Mark Power was there too! Shooting pictures. 25 years ago he made a fantastic self made book, a tribute to that night of nights. Incredibly touching. And a visually impressive statement with his camera. Thank you Mark! Fantastic."—Markus Schaden



Illustrated People
By Thomas Mailaender
$60 Signed — Purchase Book

Selected as one of the Best Books of 2014 by:
Cristina de Middel

"Brilliant, funny and irreverent as usual with all the series and books coming from Thomas Mailaender, but this one is just delicious (not literally speaking). It is a joke, for me a good one, as it presents a serious approach to a stupid idea, which normally brings to the surface how stupid things can be. Wanna break the boundaries of the medium and really explore post-photography? Then burning human skin with a red lamp and developing negatives on fatty flesh could be your thing, and this book definitely, too."—Cristina de Middel







Russian Interiors 
By Andy Rocchelli
$65 — Purchase Book

Selected as one of the Best Books of 2014 by:
Martin Parr
Ramon Pez

"Just before this photojournalist died while he was working in The Ukraine he was finishing off a project where he had accumulated photos of Russian women who were looking for partners from the West. He originally did this for the women, but then built his own interpretation around the same shooting. The book has been published posthumously and is a wonderful production with numerous gatefolds and this series of slightly unsettling portraits."—Martin Parr





The Path of Million Pens
By Miki Hasegawa
$129 — Purchase Book

Selected as one of the Best Books of 2014 by:
Takeki Sugiyama

"A hand made photobook. Cloth bound and stitched on the back. The contents are just like a family album. Pages are filled with personal and family histories. And there are 10 pockets where we can draw tags to access the special contents; memos, personal letters and essays. The photos show three generations of family stories directly printed on the pages. Looking at the photos, we are aware of how we establish family ties and circulate stories for future generations to inherit. The book is a kind of jewel box."—Takeki Sugiyama






Untitled: (I’ve taken too many photos / I’ve never taken a photo)
By Anouk Kruithof
$45 Signed — Purchase Book

Selected as one of the Best Books of 2014 by:
Colin Pantall

"Anouk Kruithof is super smart and this is her super smartest book. She deals with hugely complex subjects (how we see, curate, and exhibit photographs) in a light and accessible form, making you work to see the pictures. Imaginative, intelligent and funny, it’s more about the process of how we select and view of images than a photobook."—Colin Pantall







The Beats
Photographs by Larry Fink
$55 Signed — Purchase Book

Selected as one of the Best Books of 2014 by:
Marco Delogu

"Larry can be described as a man with a camera and a harmonica. In 1958 at the age of seventeen, he left his childhood home on Long Island and moved to a one-bedroom apartment in Greenwich Village. If you weren’t square, that was the place you’d most probably want to be. There are no Kerouac or Bourroghs in the book, just his peers. Just the beats. The book’s beautifully conceived, mixing the beautiful and damned inhabitants flowing like in a cut-up."—Marco Delogu







Out West
By Kyler Zeleny
$40 Signed — Purchase Book

Selected as one of the Best Books of 2014 by:
Andy Adams

"My fascination with the mundane: Zeleny, a visual sociologist, documents the fading past and uncertain future of the rural Canadian West. Nothing much happens in any of these pictures and maybe that’s the point. Out West is a sad, beautiful portrait of the small communities that speckle this landscape and the remnants of the people who still inhabit the place. With smart essays by Zeleny, Craig Campbell, and Ginger Strand."—Andy Adams
