Fire in Cairo
By Matthew Connors
SPBH Editions

Purchase Signed Book

Selected as one of the Best Books of 2015 by:
Gerry Badger
Aaron Schuman

"Fire in Cairo emerged from Egypt as an oblique and fragmentary document of revolutionary struggle. The book charts Connors’ uneasy engagement with the political turmoil that gripped the nation during its rapidly unfolding history. The complexity of the situation resisted comprehensive explanation, but invited metaphorical speculation. In his images Cairo reveals itself to be an enormous studio for social change, ripe with visual, sculptural and atmospheric residues of resistance. He weaves these together with portraits of Egyptians from across the political spectrum and his own experimental fiction."—from the publisher

Danny Lyon Retrospective: The Seventh Dog
By Danny Lyon

Purchase Signed Book

Read the review by Allie Haeusslein

"This is Lyon's personal story of his photographic journey: starting in the present day and moving back in time to the 1960s, it features recent color work such as Occupy (2011) and Indian Nations (2002), as well as classic b&w work from the '60s and '70s such as Bikeriders, Texas Prisons and the Destruction of Lower Manhattan. The Seventh Dog features Lyon's own writings, color and b&w photographs, collages, original letters, and ephemera – much of which is published here for the first time."—from the publisher

The Ground
By Tate Shaw
Preacher’s Biscuit Books

Purchase Signed Book

Picked as Book of the Week by Michael Light

"Tate Shaw’s The Ground is a hybrid publication with an essay as artists’ book that explores literal and metaphoric notions of ground. The book weaves together a wide ranging autobiographical narrative with imagery of hydrofracking operations in a region of Pennsylvania where the artist had lived. The essay is thoughtfully interspersed throughout the images, with the text divided in such a way that the reader is never exhausted, and that the re-emergence of the images is not an interruption, but rather signals a shift in the story’s trajectory. The visual consistency of the imagery anchors the text, which covers art-making, family, friends, and the many things that take our lives into directions we never expect."—from the publisher

By Matthew Porter

Purchase Signed Book

"Archipelago is a journey into an interior, upriver, towards an enigmatic hinterland. At any one instance, Matthew Porter sets up correlations between disparate images, configured on each page like islands in an archipelago, clusters which form their own, indigenous subjects. Short texts, placed at intervals, reveal the connective tissue binding varied subjects – Jane Fonda and the Vietnam War, the Hawaiian Island of Kaua'i and Hollywood. What interests Porter is the legacy of the photographic image, and its capacity reach across history, to make intelligible to us what we already know, or, encountered at the right moment, that which we could not otherwise know."—from the publisher
