Read the review by Blake Andrews on photo-eye Blog

"Delfosse surveys the new heroes of Kinshasa’s nightlife, where protagonists are an amalgam of Western, African and Mexican wrestling cultures that summon the spectre of the ancient with local traditions of witchcraft and black magic. He begins with a series of traditional full body portraits of the wrestlers, body-painted and chain-shackled in homemade costumes, followed with atmospheric behind-the-scenes photos of training and home life. This transition between the first and second part of the book requires the reader to physically orient the book from portrait view to landscape view."—from the publisher

Selected as one of the Best Books of 2015 by Gerry Badger

"Brian Griffin has documented the railway tracks in Poland that transported approximately three million prisoners from around Europe to the Nazi extermination camps during WWII. From the railway leading to Hitler’s Eastern Front military headquarters at the Wolf’s Lair, to the State Rail System leading to the camps of Belzec, Chelmno, Sobibor, Stutthof and Treblinka. Griffin’s haunting landscapes are an emotional and personal photographic journey that represents the relentless brutality and inhumanity of the Holocaust."—from the publisher

The beautifully designed collection of books includes titles box Roger Ballen, Todd Hido, Edgar Martins, Mayumi Hosokura and Esther Teichmann, and combines their work with established and up and coming writers such as the National Poet for Scotland Liz Lochhead, and Joe Ahearne, director of Doctor Who and co-writer of Danny Boyle’s Trance.
