Kinky City — SIGNED
Photographs by Paweł Jaszczuk

For about three years, from 2007 to 2010, Paweł Jaszczuk routinely grabbed his bike after returning from his day jobs and dived into the metropolis’s nightlife, looking for Tokyo’s swinger clubs and happening bars, its couple kissas and private sex-parties. He won over their hosts and owners, sat at bars and in booths, listened to at times questionable music and convinced the guests to be pictured by him while living their fantasies.

Kinky City is a ‘naked’ book with open-thread stitching in a relief silkscreened slipcase made of raw cardboard and has been printed in an edition of 400.

Naked Reflections — SIGNED
Photographs by Peter Suschitzky

The work in this book is drawn from a project which cinematographer Peter Suschitzky has been working on for the past seven years between his activities in the film industry. Suschitzky decided to take up this project after years and years of photographing all over the world. He wanted to find a theme which he could work on at home and in his own time and that was steeped in tradition.

Peter Suschitzky started his career as a cameraman at twenty-one, in documentary films destined for German television, in Latin America. When he returned to London, good fortune brought him his first feature film, aged twenty-two. Suschitzky has been the director of photography on nearly fifty films, including: The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Crash, Naked Lunch and Maps to the Stars. Suschitzky is a long time collaborator of director David Cronenberg.

Painted Nudes
By Saul Leiter

Painted Nudes is the first and only book dedicated to this rich and unique part of Leiter’s oeuvre (painted photographs). It features over eighty color reproductions of Leiter’s painted photographs - intimate, small-scale pieces that merge Leiter’s two foremost artistic passions and showcase his remarkable sense of color and composition.

"Leiter's brush-strokes breathe a greater form and movement into his photographs. This is the most exciting and beautiful book I've seen of his work and the only one on this fascinating aspect of his career." — Christopher J Johnson

Photographs by Jimmy DeSana

Suburban collects in print for the first time DeSana's surreally lyrical, sexually charged photographs from his series of the same name, made in the late 1970s through the 1980s. DeSana staged photos of nude subjects, male and female, in various strange, evocative poses, entwined with everyday objects and luridly lit with gel-covered tungsten lights.

"I don't really think of that work as erotic,' DeSana said of this series. 'I think of the body almost as an object. I attempted to use the body but without the eroticism that some photographers use frequently. I think I de-eroticized a lot of it but that is the way the suburbs are in a sense." — Jimmy DeSana

Images of Women II
Photographs by Peter Lindbergh

Internationally-revered German fashion photographer Peter Lindbergh revolutionized his metier with iconic images of the 1980s supermodels. From his beginnings, he has sought to capture the personality, character, and identity of fashion models, not just the glitter and glamour.

Images of Women II features highlights of Lindbergh's between 2005 and 2014: fashion photographs, nudes, and portraits of today's actresses and models.
