Brother Wolf
A Forgotten Promise
Hardcover      ISBN: 1559712104

The work of dedicated, wolf-obsessed wildlife photographer Brandenburg is splendidly displayed in this beautifully designed and produced book.

Hardcover      ISBN: 3775711295

People have been the focus of Clemens Kalischer's photographs for more than 50 years, ever since he arrived in New York City at age 21, in 1942, having fled Germany with his family via Switzerland and Paris. "Displaced Persons," one of his first series, and one of his most personal and intimate, quietly chronicles the arrival of Holocaust refugees in the United States in the late 1940s, a scene of which he was both observer and participant. Later work includes photographs of everyday scenes in New York and impressions from his travels in Europe, images which sensitively hone in on the people they capture and the circumstances in which they live. This volume collects 120 selections from throughout Kalischer's extensive body of work, an oeuvre which spans the images he contributed to Edward Steichen's "The Family of Man" in 1955, the freelance jobs he undertook for prominent magazines like Time, Life, and Fortune, and the 35 years he worked on assignment for the New York Times.

Cocaine True Cocaine Blue
Cocaine True Cocaine Blue
Hardcover      ISBN: 0893815438

A compelling portrait of three communities penetrated by drugs and isolation: East New York, North Philadelphia, and the Red Hook housing projects in Brooklyn, New York.
With a chilling and informative afterword by Dr. Stephen W. Nicholas, who works as a pediatric AIDS physician in Harlem, "Cocaine True, Cocaine Blue" reveals how first steps toward solutions to overcome the drug trade have actually contributed to public denial and further isolation of the trapped communities. "Cocaine True, Cocaine Blue" is a history of our times, a compelling, terrifying document that will educate us and promote dialogue, a first step toward affecting change.

David Leventi: Opera
David Leventi
Hardcover      ISBN: 8862083971

In his series Opera, photographer David Leventi (born 1978)--whose work has been widely published in Time, The New York Times Magazine, Cond Nast Traveler and American Photography--captures the interiors of more than 40 opera houses spanning four centuries and four continents. Shot meticulously over five years, Opera presents a typology; each empty hall is seen from the place at center stage where the singers would stand. The large-format camera reveals these temples of music in their wealth of architectural detail and acoustic design; the body of work historically documents landmarks that serve as symbols of their nations' wealth and grandeur, their dedication to the promotion of the arts and to bringing communities together. With its unique concept--the opera house as a lens for cultural survey, a unifying force and tradition across continents--the collection serves as a beautiful tribute to opera.
