Tree Stone Water
By Gerry Johansson
Libraryman

"After visiting Japan during the 70’s and 80’s, and after the disappointment to see that even regional cities had been developed to the point where they all resembled a mini-Tokyo, Gerry Johansson (b. 1945, Swedish) decided to focus his creative energy on capturing the environment surrounding the Japanese people, as opposed to the people themselves. He chose not to merely record the bustling modern development of Ehime Prefecture, the core of Shikoku, but to also capture the exceptional natural beauty of the region. He took his camera to the rocks and mountain streams of the Nametoko Valley, deep inside forests teeming with the energy of life, and to the waters of the Seto Inland Sea."—the publisher

Ama Lur
By Jon Cazenave
Dalpine

"AMA LUR is the closing chapter of Galerna, an investigation project that Jon Cazenave embarked on 8 years ago. In the course of these years, the artist has compiled a visual repertoire of the Basque people's idiosyncrasy and aesthetics, in an attempt to unravel his homeland's political intricacy from an anthropological perspective...

AMA LUR thus challenges the notion of the border and reveals a territory loaded with history and magic. Delving into the Earth's deepest recesses, Cazenave connects us with a universe that appeals to humankind's ancestral spirit and to our balance with nature, a belief system that still guides us to this day."—the publisher

Shrubs of Death
By Mike Slack

"A deadpan typological study of odd shrubbery found at a cemetery in northeastern Indiana (where the photographer’s grandparents are buried), SHRUBS OF DEATH doubles down on the notion that 'all photographs are memento mori' (Susan Sontag). Published in an unlimited ‘eternal edition,’ hand stamped and signed by the artist."—the publisher
