Pillow Book "Erotos" — Limited Edition
Photographs by Nobuyoshi Araki
The title Erotos is a term that Nobuyoshi Araki coined to express an image in which "Eros" and "Thanatos" harmoniously blend together. For these ambitiously provocative photographs, Araki used a macro lens and ring strobe flash to shoot his subjects at the closest possible range, which is probably his ultimate interpretation of "still life."
The Pillow Book is a bound collection of 10 platinum prints bound in ultra-soft genuine leather. An edition size of 50, each book contains the artist's signature, handwritten edition number and an original signed color Polaroid print.
To view the signed Polaroid prints inquire with Christopher J Johnson via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-505-988-5152 ext. 113

Snow and Rose & other tales — SIGNED
Photographs by Marianna Rothen
“In the lonely fortress of her domestic home, life is unbearable.” With those dramatic words, the viewer is invited into the world created by Marianna Rothen, a fictional account of women who left the world of men behind and moved to a remote and peaceful place to live amongst themselves. Rothen’s photographs are staged like homages to the films of Antonioni, Bergman or Godard; they seem like film stills and intrigue the viewer to search for and identify the references.
Hardcover, linen bound with a photograph tipped-in and an elastic band.

"Do you keep a diary?
My images are a visual diary about my sexual power, about fantasies as a sex object. This diary is my 'martial' response, my shooting back in reaction to the fake pornification of the media images. I shoot back with wild sexual power." — from the interivew with Scheurwater in European Photography No. 90

Photographs and text by Rita Lino
Nudity and nakedness as confessional, as an admission of vulnerability, not for the sake of titillation; Lino explores the possibilities of her body with an uninhibited sexuality and a playful, stylised shamelessness.
Entartete (German for Degenerate) is the result of more than 10 years of auto-portraiture by the emerging Portuguese photographer, Rita Lino. A large series of experimental photographs of psychological or emotional moments taken primarily for the purpose of introspection and self-analysis presented in a limited edition quarter-bound hardback.
