"This first book in color by Gossage is fascinating as he makes it look like he was a new colorist all along. Mainly shot in the suburbs of Washington DC, he can find photos in the most mundane territory with the greatest of ease."—Alec Soth

"Igor Samolet's Be Happy! follows the grand tradition, showing a small cadre of Russian youth engaged in (check all rebel boxes that apply) drinking, sex, group sex, stripping, smoking, fighting, fireworks, squatting, and various indeterminate stunts involving water and/or fire. The usual young hijinks in other words, although practiced here with unusual fervor and sometimes by older participants. At some point, youthful indiscretions lose their patina of experimental freedom and sag into middle-aged nihilism." —Blake Andrews

Aftermath: World Trade Center Archive
By Joel Meyerowitz
$75 Signed — Purchase Book

Joel Meyerowitz was the only photographer allowed unrestricted access to the site of the World Trade Center towers immediately following the attack, climbing through the rubble with the police officers, firemen, steelworkers and rescue teams. His stunning over-sized book Aftermath: World Trade Center Archive captures the astonishing destruction as well as the many-year clean up effort, and also the dust-covered blocks surrounding the site. Over a dozen years later, the images are still shocking, horrific, and moving.

"A great new work from Schmidt exploring all aspects of food production in Germany. He shoots an unsavoury mix of close ups, color, black and white, throws this all into the pot to produce a most compelling book." —Martin Parr
