Together Forever
The Run-DMC and Beastie Boys Photographs
Hardcover      ISBN: 0847866475
People always get caught up in what these two iconic groups stood for, but can we just step back for a moment and say, who gives a fuck? They were good They made amazing records ...Rap parallels punk rock: Destroy everything that came before it and borrow little bits to help you get there. Bring it full circle: it helps us understand how and why these two groups did what they did, and why Glen E. brings us into the picture deeper than anyone and brings it all together. Forever. These photographs inspire and excite us to this day. -- Chris Rock

Run-DMC were outsiders from mainstream culture. The Beasties were outsiders from hip-hop culture. Being accepted by Run-DMC and touring with Run-DMC was a mark of authenticity for Beastie Boys. There was a feeling of family between the two groups. -- Rick Rubin

In the early 1980s iconic skate and punk photographer Glen E. Friedman had a front row seat to the rise of hip-hop music and culture. He was able to get with both Run-DMC and Beastie Boys on their meteoric rise to fame. Befriending both groups, Friedman's eye composed the photos that have become synonymous with how we remember both groups when they first came into our collective consciousness. And then the moment when it all came together: the seminal, popular, and highly publicized 1987 joint concert tour, Raising Hell.
TOGETHER FOREVER is not only a visual time capsule of hip-hop on the cusp of becoming mainstream, but a record of the strong bond of friendship between these two groups and how they significantly influenced each other, all while having a massive impact on music history and the industry. Including scores of never-before-published photos made by Friedman--the bands in concert, goofing around with celebrities, portraits, and, of course, hanging out together--TOGETHER FOREVER includes a foreword by Chris Rock, plus text contributions by the surviving members of both groups and others who were there, proving that the originals still reign.

Led Zeppelin Live
1975-1977
Hardcover      ISBN: 1851498966

- Includes many rare and unseen photos of the band on and off stage- Extensive commentary throughout from top photographers: Terry O'Neill, Michael Brennan and Baron Wolman- A mixture of black & white and color photography- Edited by Dave Lewis, the author of several acclaimed Led Zeppelin booksBetween 1975 and 1977, there is little doubt that Led Zeppelin ruled supreme as the biggest band in the world. Bigger audiences, bigger stage settings, bigger venues - lights, lasers and dragon suits. All this combined to produce some of the most iconic images of the 1970s rock era. That era comes firmly under the spotlight in Led Zeppelin Live 1975 - 1977 The book profiles the work of three highly respected photographers. Terry O'Neill made his name documenting the fashions, styles, and celebrities of the1960s.He was also on hand to capture Led Zeppelin at Earls Court in London on May 23, 1975, at Tampa Stadium, Florida on June 3,1977 and at New York's Madison Square Garden on June 7 of the same year. Similarly in the right place at the right time was Michael Brennan. Michael had built a reputation working for various daily UK newspapers in the UK. He moved to America in 1973 and began working on various entertainment and sporting assignments. In early 1975, Michael travelled with the band on their rented luxury jet, a Boeing 720B known as The Starship. He was then in close proximity for their show on January 31,1975 at Detroit's Olympia Stadium. San Francisco based former Rolling Stone magazine chief photographer Baron Wolman was in attendance to capture what would turn out to be the Led Zeppelin's final performances in America. In front of 50,000 fans each day they performed in the open air at the Alameda County Coliseum in Oakland California, on the afternoons of July 23 and 24,1977. Baron's chronicling of the band in stark daylight offers a unique portrayal of their final appearances in a large stadium setting. Fifty years on from their formation in 1968, Led Zeppelin's legacy continues to inspire admiration and awe. The timeless photos presented in this book accurately capture Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and John Bonham in all their on stage glory during their latter era. Compiled and edited by world renowned Led Zeppelin authority Dave Lewis, Led Zeppelin Live 1975 -1977 chronicles the period when Led Zeppelin could rightly claim to be the greatest live rock attraction on the planet. Here's the lasting photographic proof...

In 2001, Truman Capote's stylish homage to Brooklyn was brought back into print, but not until 2014-- more than fifty years after they were taken--were the original photographs commissioned to illustrate the essay discovered by the late photographer's son. Also found among the negatives were previously unknown portraits of Capote; none of the photos had ever been published.

Now, with the publication of Brooklyn: A Personal Memoir, with the lost photographs of David Attie, the words and images are united for the first time.

Hardcover      ISBN: 3862065294

- A survivor's account of the Tiananmem Square massacre, told through photographs taken at the event - The colours of the photographs have been inverted to create a more interactive and thought-provoking experience Inspired by the reform movements in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, student protests began to form in China in the spring of 1989. They made Tiananmen square their central meeting place. Unsettled by this public display of dissent, on 3 and 4 June the Chinese army violently crushed the protests. There are no official figures for the number of victims. 2600 people are estimated to have been killed, and 7000 injured. The photographer Xu Yong, aged 35 at the time, was among the survivors. He captured the chaotic scenes on celluloid. In 2014, he published his photos in a book that was banned by the board of censors. This new edition, published by Verlag Kettler, makes the book available to the public. Xu has not retouched the photographs. He reproduces the negatives with inverted colours, which can only be deciphered once the color inversion function on mobile phones or tablets is activated. Consequently, his work represents an eerie yet authentic perspective on this watershed moment in Chinese history.

Seduction
Hardcover      ISBN: 8862085796

Drawing on 19th-century photo techniques, Izu's still lifes and portraits are poised between lustrous sensuality and austere grandeur

When Kenro Izu is taking photographs, he finds himself constantly challenged by a seductive voice urging him to make a "nice picture." And Izu's photographs are gorgeous--the artist, inspired by 19th-century photography methods, has been working with a large-format camera since 1983, making detailed, lustrous contact prints on hand-coated platinum palladium paper. A master technician, Izu is considered one of the greatest living platinum printers. But taking "nice pictures" is not what Izu sets out to do.

The photographer aims instead to capture something of the spirit or inner life of his chosen subject--whether it be a still life or an ancient, sacred monument. Izu describes this tension between capturing the essence and beauty of the subject as an "effort to hold myself at the very edge (before falling into the dark hole of seduction)."

Kenro Izu: Seduction presents the results of these efforts: photographs by Izu of fruits, plants and human figures, all made with a large-format film camera and contact printed in platinum from 8x10 to 14x20-inch negatives.

Japanese-born, US-based photographer Kenro Izu (born 1949) studied at Nippon University in Tokyo before deciding to settle in New York. In 1979 he began what has become a lifelong project, traveling to photograph the world's sacred places. His journeys to Angkor Wat led him to establish a free pediatric hospital in Cambodia and found Friends Without a Border, a nonprofit organization to help Asian children.

Nevertheless, Carl De Keyzer managed to cross the entire country in 42 days, divided into three journeys.

Donovan Wylie: The Tower Series

The Tower Series
Hardcover      ISBN: 386930782x

Donovan Wylie's The Tower Series, now available as a complete set in a custom cardboard box, reveals the repetitive character of military conflict across diverse geographies and histories. The first book in the series is British Watchtowers (2007), which studies the lines of sight from surveillance posts along the Irish border, and reveals a kind of virtual environment that enveloped the border region of Northern Ireland. These towers, constructed in the mid-1980s primarily in the mountainous border region of South Armagh, were landmarks in a 30-year conflict in and over Northern Ireland. The second book, Outposts (2011), charts NATO observation posts in Kandahar Province, Afghanistan. Built on natural promontories with multiple lines of sight, these outposts formed a protective visual architecture and were frequently positioned on defense locations established during earlier conflicts. North Warning System draws a close to his Tower Series. Surveying a radar station just inside the Canadian Arctic, Wylie examines the detection of invisible threats through unmanned observation posts in remote regions.
