#girlgaze is on a mission to close the gender gap by creating visibility and tangible jobs for girls behind the lens and this timely book, from photographer and media entrepreneur Amanda de Cadenet's visionary focus, features a beautiful and powerful collection of images capturing how young women perceive the world.

This inspiring must-have for feminists and creatives alike showcases the work of a diverse collective of female-identifying photographers mixing candid and formal photos of females living their lives: moments of significance caught in a fraction of a second at home, on the streets, remote countrysides, and in war-torn countries. Spirited, elegant, and inspiring, #girlgaze promotes and highlights the work of Gen Z female photographers from all walks of life and is a stunningly beautiful representation of the female gaze.

The Fraenkel Gallery celebrates its 20th anniversary with a special exhibition and corresponding catalogue entitled 20Twenty.

The artists include Arbus, Brassai, Cornell, Duchamp, Eggleston, Kertesz, LeWitt, Man Ray, Modotti, Rodchenko, Ruscha, Stieglitz, Strand, and Warhol, among many others.

20th Century Photography
20th Century Photography
by Taschen
Hardcover      ISBN: 3836541025

The history of photography began nearly 200 years ago, but only relatively recently has it been fully recognized as a medium in its own right. Cologne's Museum Ludwig was the first museum of contemporary art to devote a substantial section to international photography. The L. Fritz Gruber collection, from which this book is drawn, is one of the most important in Germany and one of the most representative anywhere in the world, constituting the core of the museum's holdings.

This book provides a fascinating insight into the collection's rich diversity; from conceptual art to abstraction to reportage, all of the major movements and genres are represented via a vast selection of the 20th century's most remarkable photographs. From Ansel Adams to Piet Zwart, over 850 works are presented in alphabetical order by photographer, with descriptive texts and photographers' biographical details, providing a comprehensive and indispensable overview of 20th-century photography.

Alluvium: Dhaka, Bangladesh in the Crossroads of Water
Alluvium
Dhaka, Bangladesh in the Crossroads of Water
Hardcover      ISBN: 1941806864

Imagine the most extreme urban environment on earth--a place three times as dense as Manhattan, enveloped in a constant flow of water, beset by a relentless stream of rural migrants, plagued by annual monsoons, and threatened by climate change. A place where the very earth beneath your feet is constantly shifting from dry to wet, where categories like "dry" and "wet" in fact mean very little, since most of what exists is somewhere in between. This is Dhaka, capital city of Bangladesh. Home to 14 million.

Since 2007, architects Stephen Kieran and James Timberlake have directed a design-research laboratory on Dhaka for graduate students at the University of Pennsylvania School of Design. What began as a desire to help a city in need became an immersion in investigating its ebbs and flows, mapping its urban systems, and charting its development via annual visits. The result of this extended study is Alluvium: Dhaka, Bangladesh, in the Crossroads of Water, a cross-genre book that incorporates diverse media and layers of narrative and analysis to encourage new readings and perspectives.

The book includes first-person narratives by architects and planners, documentary photographs, and maps and infographics that visually represent the intricate connections between people, water, land, and health in this delta megacity. The work proposes a new approach to understanding place that is interwoven with human interest--an intimate, collaborative, research-based model that holds relevance for both the developing and developed worlds.
American Youth
American Youth
Hardcover      ISBN: 8869651576

"Images of energy and inertia, progress and peril. American Youth""is more than 100 pages of paradox."--"Washington Post"
American Youth examines through vivid photographs the newest generation of 18 to 24-year-olds in detail, observing young couples and Mormon missionaries, debutante balls and drunken tailgate stupors, war widows and B-boys, street kids and lobstermen. How are they different, and how are they exactly the same as the generations that came before? On these pages are Christian rock fans, lesbian gangstas and Obama volunteers. There are would-be pop stars waiting for a shot on American Idol, organic farmers living the hippie dream and tattooed Cobra gang members brooding in the Navajo Reservation's Window Rock jail. Another series of photographs asks young New Yorkers to think big: If you had the chance, what question would you ask God?
These remarkably candid images of youth are introduced with a text by Steve Appleford and have been realized by the photographers of Redux Pictures: Marc Asnin, Ben Baker, Nina Berman, David Butow, Peter Frank Edwards, Danny Wilcox Frazier, Eros Hoagland, John Keatley, Andy Kropa, Erika Larsen, Gina LeVay, Joshua Lutz, Preston Mack, Kevin J. Miyazaki, Darcy Padilla, Mark Peterson, Michael Rubenstein, Greg Ruffing, Q. Sakamaki, Erin Siegal, Angie Smith, Ben Stechschulte, Brad Swonetz, Nathaniel Welch and David Yellen.
Redux, founded in 2003 by Marcel Saba, is an independent photo agency based in New York City that specializes in high-quality editorial and commercial photography.

Animals in Photographs
Animals in Photographs
Hardcover      ISBN: 160606441x

From the invention of photography up through the internet age, animals have been a frequent subject of the camera's lens, from portraits of beloved pets and exotic creatures to the documentation of human cruelty against them. Drawing on the collection of the J. Paul Getty Museum, this book traces the relationship between animals in photographs and the rapidly advancing technology of photography. From the wild dogs of South Africa to William Wegman's photogenic Weimaraners, from images of Victorian zoos to visions of the heavy toll of game hunting, animals on film are moving, sympathetic, and sometimes tragic figures.

In this vivid and engaging book, Arpad Kovacs explores the social, symbolic, scientific, and aesthetic approaches to a subject that has been of continuous interest to photographers across the centuries. Over ninety full-color plates represent image makers ranging from Felice Beato, Eadweard Muybridge, Andr Kert sz, and Alfred Stieglitz to Berenice Abbott, Manuel lvarez Bravo, and Man Ray. More recent photographers, such as Robert Mapplethorpe and Hiroshi Sugimoto, are represented along with contemporary artists, such as Tim Hawkinson, Pieter Hugo, and Graciela Iturbide. The result is a book that shows the evolution of a photographic obsession that abides to this day.

This book is published on the occasion of the exhibition In Focus: Animalia, on view at the J. Paul Getty Museum from May 26 to October 18, 2015.

Aperture 211
Summer 2013
Paperback      ISBN: 159711233x

The summer 2013 issue of Aperture focuses on "Curiosity." Taking its name from the Mars Rover, which has reminded us that a fundamental purpose of photography is to show us something new, the articles and portfolios ask: what can we learn by revisiting photography's role in discovery, experimentation and exploration? The issue toggles between past and present, and between science and art, and features Jennifer Tucker on Victorian science photography, spectacle and rational amusement; Kelley Wilder on what it means for photography to make visible the invisible; Brian Dillon on the cosmic and the mundane; a conversation between artist Trevor Paglen and the eminent science historian Peter Galison; a selection from Harold "Doc" Edgerton's lab books; David Campany on photographic abstraction and perception; curator Joel Smith's guide to "photographic nothing"; and portfolios by British photographer Stephen Gill, Amsterdam-based artist Eva-Fiore Kovakovsky, curator Lynne Cooke on Horst Ademeit's mysterious annotated Polaroids and much more.
