Hyenas of the Battlefield, Machines in the Garden
By Lisa Barnard, Eugenie Shinkle and Julian Stallabrass
GOST Books
$74.00 SALE: $50.00

"This book is the outcome of a study by Lisa Barnard which took place between 2008–2013. Using photographs and film, it examines the “unholy alliance” between the military, the entertainment industry and technology, and their coalescence around modern-day warfare. From Las Vegas to Pakistan, and from Iraq to Hollywood, her work questions photojournalism’s claims to truth and the indecipherable, all-consuming nature of the industrial-military complex. Barnard connects her interest in aesthetics, current photographic debates around materiality, and the existing political climate in a tense and topical documentary. With essays by Julian Stallabrass and EugĂ©nie Shinkle."—the publisher




Salix Polaris
Photographs by Anka Sielska
Self-published
$24.00 SALE: $19.20 Signed imprefect

"The Salix Polaris book came to being as the effect of a journey I made with Polish scientists to the Polish Polar Station, Hornsund on Spitsbergen (August/September 2012). The photographs taken there resulted from meeting people, whose lives are inseparably connected with science and nature. The title polar willow (SalixPolaris) is a small shrub only a few centimetres high. Its form resembles human nervous or circulatory system. It is strong, wind and frost resistant, and its fresh sprouts develop also under snow. "—the publisher

An Archeology of Fear and Desire
By Frederic Brenner
MACK
$60.00 SALE: $39.95

"French photographer Frederic Brenner’s documentary images portray the complexity and dissonance of the people of Israel – a nation inextricably bound in faith and place. Historically concerned with documenting the Jewish Diaspo- ra and visual records of Jewish life, Brenner turns his gaze to the landscape of contemporary Israel, alive to the paradoxes of a people who overlap, compete and exclude – while at the same time capturing the vitality of the Jewish community. "—the publisher

"Yukichi Watabe documented the investigation of a grisly murder that had occurred in Mito (Ibaraki Prefecture) in 1958.

Their investigation involved stakeouts around downtown areas of Tokyo, areas that have since changed beyond recognition."—the publisher
