Cowboys Don't Do Lunch
The Photographs of Herb Cohen
Hardcover ISBN: 1940743540
This book features skillfully detailed photographs of the last of the real cowboys of Cave Creek, Arizona from when the area was in transition from a full-time cattle ranching community to an incorporated town. Despite the rapid modernization of life in the 20th Century, through the 1970s the inhabitants of this community remained relatively unchanged in their mannerisms and way of life. Herb Cohen was invited by the cowboys he photographed to be a participant in their lives. In addition, he also was equally welcomed into families on the Navajo Reservation. Based on these connections Cohen captured images few had access to at the time. His photos reveal the historical and cultural significance of the people that settled these regions.
Cuba's Car Culture
Celebrating the Island's Automotive Love Affair
Hardcover ISBN: 0760350264
Welcome to Cuba's automotive time capsule, filled with classic cars. The story of how Cuba came to be trapped in automotive time is a fascinating one. For decades, the island country had enjoyed healthy tourism trade and American outpost status, and by the 1950s it had the highest per capita automotive purchasing of any Latin American country - its middle class ensured an interesting variety of vehicles plying the roads. But when Cuba fell to communist rebels in 1959, so ended the inflow of new cars. Since then, trade embargo forced Cuba's car enthusiasts to develop a unique and insular culture, one marked by great creativity, such as: Keeping a car alive with no opportunity to acquire replacement parts Customizing a car with no access to aftermarket parts Drag racing with no drag strip In many ways, Cuba is an automotive time warp, where the newest car is a 1959 Chevy or perhaps one of the Soviet Ladas.Cuba's Car Culture offers an inside look at a unique car culture, populated with cars that have been cut off from the world so long that they've morphed into something else in the spirit of automotive survival. Authors Tom Cotter and Bill Warner (founder of the Amelia Island Concours) take readers ofCuba's Car Culture on a whirlwind tour of all things automotive, beginning with Cuba's pre-Castro car and racing history and bringing us up to today's lost collector cars, street racing, and the challenges of keeping decades-old cars on the road. The book is illustrated throughout with rare historical photos as well as contemporary photos of Cuba's current car scene. For anyone who enjoys classic cars, from old Chevy Bel-Airs to Studebakers to Ford Fairlanes, a cruise around Cuba will make you feel like a kid in a candy store.

This is Serge Clément's first major retrospective, including forty years of work. The titleDéPaysÉ refers partly to the disorientation of one's living environment and in the mind. The universal cityscape surfaces as abstract multiple layers of asphalt, architecture, and streetlights. Like a journey into the heart of urban solitude and its periphery, Clément's work draws the viewer into an intimate relationship with the image. As the images accumulate, they create an imaginary density of timeless fragments. Serge Clément has had solo exhibitions around the world and his works are found in many public and private collections in Canada and abroad.
