Homesick
Photographs by Sara J. Winston
Zatara Press

Selected as one of the Best Books of 2015 by John Gossage

"In many ways, Homesick wears its heart on its sleeve; in lyrical images that meld keen observation and a tender depiction. Katz reveals her deep familiarity with these people, objects and rooms, while also retaining a certain wistful remove. Little is shared of the family’s physical relationships or even accidental proximities to one another. Figures are usually solitary and shot from behind. A story of family life in cropped limbs and headless torsos, prone and on the block; and written in part by someone else."—from the review by Karen Jenkins

Before the War
2nd Edition
Photographs by Alejandro Cartagena
Self-Published

"The book comes in dossier form, in a beautiful cardboard envelope with a zip-rip flap that opens into a series of crudely printed booklets. It looks great and feels great when you open it. Flip up the flap of the envelope and there's a text that tells you how many people have died in this drugs war, the devastation that it has reaped and the fact that nothing is clear. There are lots of bad guys, but who and where they are is sometimes murky."—from the review by Colin Pantall





Aphasia
Photographs by Andreas Trogisch
Peperoni Books

"This slim volume of only 22 images has a mysterious, lenticular-printed cover in bright pink and black quite a contrast with the banal subjects in shades of grey found within. The series of almost in focus (or slightly out of focus) photographs of nothing in particular a shirt, cracked concrete, trees, a playground, a bicycle mimics its title in a way: aphasia is the loss or impairment of the power to use or comprehend words, usually resulting from brain damage. About his photographs, Andreas Trogisch says, In the end it is only light and dark spots on paper, that evoke various emotions."—from the publisher







Shikishima
Photographs by Tamiko Nishimura
Zen Foto Gallery

"...last year at the Photobook festival in Kassel I was happy to discover a (for me) new photographer. Of course she was not new at all. But since I had never seen or heard about her before I thought she was a young photographer, but at a closer look there were steam trains, old coke signs etc and in the back it stated early seventies. She is quite close to some of her contemporaries and in Shikishima she takes us on a journey we kind of have been on before with some of her more famous fellow travelers in the are, bure, boke style. It's tilted, sometimes blurry, grainy etc… mostly from a train through some of the more remote regions of Japan in 1969-1972."—from the Book of the Week pick by Morten Andersen
