This isn’t a book about how to take the best pictures. It’s not even about the technical aspects of photography or how to ‘make it’ as a photographer. In fact, it argues that you should take fewer photographs.
By sharing 10 practices honed over a lifetime spent behind the lens working with clients such as Adidas, Levi Strauss, and Apple, photographer Andrew Paynter encourages you to develop a more considered approach to photography so that you craft pictures with care.
Do Photo teaches novice, intermediate and advanced photographers — and everyone in between — how to use their cameras to really connect with subjects, create memorable and more impactful photographs, and to enjoy the process along the way. And guess what? It all starts before you even pick up the camera.
Preface by artist Geoff McFetridge.
10 practices to more considered photography
Read advice from a photographer who has spent his whole career behind the lens. Andrew Paynter's clients include Addidas, Apple and Levi's.

Es gibt einen unverwechselbaren Blick, den zwei Menschen haben, wenn sie verliebt sind. Und wenn Sie es spüren, können Sie es nicht verbergen. Dieses Buch ist eine Hymne auf die Liebe.
Die außergewöhnliche Sammlung des New Yorker Ehepaars Hugh Nini und Neal Treadwell gewährt Einblicke in bisher unbekannte Fotografien von Männern, die sich lieben, über ein Jahrhundert hinweg: von 1850–1950. Sie erstreckt sich über den gesamten Globus von den USA und Kanada bis hin zu den europäischen, südamerikanischen, asiatischen und australischen Kontinenten.
LOVING präsentiert uns in 350 erstmals veröffentlichten Bildern die Kraft, die Magie der Liebe, zeigt sie in ihrer Fürsorge, Mitmenschlichkeit, im Menschsein, als Universalkategorie. Der opulente Bildband wirft ein neues Licht auf die Universalität der am meisten geschriebenen, inszenierten oder gefilmten Emotionen – der Liebe. Ihre Botschaft ist für alle da.

This spellbinding scrapbook is one artist's tribute to androgynous waifs and tomboy dreamers. A fashion photographer for clients like Dazed & Confused and Alexander McQueen, Toyin Ibidapo records her subjects over time in her own home. Each subject is a friend; model and artist collaborate in the creative process. The results are intimate and real. We watch these naive protagonists explore who they are--and who they might become. Although each picture is carefully composed, the mood is far from contrived. The results: delicate portraits that exude a sincerity often missing from images of the young and beautiful. Coltish and charming, these mesmerizing photographs capture the raw vulnerability of adolescence.

Art, more than anything, opens up the possibility of approaching one’s own sexuality beyond the limits imposed by taboos. Not only does it allow for a risk-free, playful exploration of gender and forbidden desires, but it is unique in capturing its contradictions.
In recent years, a young and active queer photography scene has emerged, helped in large part by social media. Indulging their desire for self-presentation, affirmation, and reflection, many photographers portray male homosexuality in particular as a private idyll. At the same time, they shine a critical light on their own and society’s approach to transsexuality and gender roles and expose the corrupting but also affirmative power of pornography.
Films, series, and mainstream cultural appropriation suggest that society has largely embraced queer lifestyles. However, a number of documentary photographers provide evidence that being gay or lesbian can still lead to marginalization, isolation, stigmatization, and violence in certain countries and communities. Their works also take the regime of sexuality itself into account and show that many bans on same-sex contact have colonial origins.
This carefully researched and richly designed book introduces around 40 contemporary photographic positions, including those of well-established photographers as well as plenty of unknown and less well-known talent.
With texts by Ben Miller from Schwules Museum Berlin.
The Worm showcases over 200 images from NASA’s archives chosen with one simple criteria: each photograph must feature ‘the worm’.
Together, these images demonstrate not only the extent to which Danne & Blackburn’s 1975 NASA Graphic Program had been implemented before being rescinded in 1992, but also the incredible achievements by NASA personnel.
The unfinished final chapter of the book will showcase the return of the worm, as it flies once again aboard a SpaceX rocket on May 30, 2020.

Wes Anderson’s beloved films announce themselves through a singular aesthetic – one that seems too vivid, unique, and meticulously constructed to possibly be real. Not so – in Accidentally Wes Anderson, Wally Koval collects the world’s most Anderson-like sites in all their faded grandeur and pop-pastel colours, telling the story behind each stranger than-fiction-location.
Based on the viral online phenomenon and community of the same name, Accidentally Wes Anderson celebrates the unique aesthetic that millions of Anderson fans love – capturing the symmetrical, the atypical, the unexpected, the vibrantly patterned, and distinctively coloured in arresting photographs from around the world.
Authorised by Wes Anderson himself, and appealing to the millions who love his films, this book is also for fans of Cabin Porn and Van Life – and avid travellers and aspiring adventurers of all kinds.

An updated edition of Shore's groundbreaking book, now with previously unpublished photographs and a new introduction
Stephen Shore's images from his travels across America in 1972-73 are considered the benchmark for documenting the extraordinary in the ordinary and continue to influence photographers today. The original edition of American Surfaces, published by Phaidon in 2005, brought together 320 photographs sequenced in the order in which they were originally documented. Now, in the age of Instagram and nearly 50 years after Shore embarked on his cross-country journey, this revised and expanded edition will bring this seminal work back into focus.

This artistic research scrutinizes how sickness has been represented in art photography and examines new ways to approach, think about and create photographic art about sickness. The dissertation combines theoretical research and artworks. The theoretical part shows that while scholars have concentrated on the ethics of what kind of images of sickness or suffering ought to be shown or on the psychology of why some images of sickness bother viewers, most art photographers have concentrated on depicting personal illness experiences.
Widely regarded as one of the most influential fashion and portrait photographers, Mario Testino is responsible for the creation of emblematic images, transmitting emotion and energy in an open and intimate way. Throughout his four-decade career, Testino has been on a journey beyond the world of fashion capturing Earth’s traditions and cultures with unparalleled access and an extraordinarily unique point of view.
Peruvian by birth, Testino’s intimate connection to Italy found its roots in his Italian heritage, but blossomed when he experienced the country for himself. Discovering Italy was, for Testino, synonymous with discovering his passion for fashion. “Rome was all about the hottest, latest trends and fresh new styling, and I loved the way Italians could shed the latest look for an even newer thing without ever losing their own identity.”
In Ciao, Testino handpicks his favorite images of Italy, a country that has featured heavily in his life, from his friendships and breathtaking vistas to quintessentially Italian iconic fashion shoots and Italians’ ever-evolving allure to their effervescent lifestyle. Featuring three sections, IN GIRO (out and about), ALLA MODA (in fashion), and AL MARE (at sea), the result is a highly personal journey across the country through Testino’s lens paying homage to Italy, and it’s culture as well as a chronicle of 40 years of genre-defining photography.
Also available in an Art Edition limited to 100 copies, each with a signed print by Mario Testino

At a time when surfing is more popular than ever, it’s fitting to look back at the years that brought the sport into the mainstream. Developed by Hawaiian Islanders over five centuries ago, surfing began to peak on the mainland in the 1950s—becoming not just a sport, but a way of life, admired and exported across the globe. One of the key image-makersfrom that period is LeRoy Grannis, a surfer since 1931, who began photographing the longboard era of the early 1960s in both California and Hawaii.
This edition brings back Grannis’s hair-raising, sold-out Collector’s Edition, curated from the photographer’s personal archives, to showcase his most vibrant work in a compact and affordable format—from the bliss of catching the perfect wave at San Onofre to dramatic wipeouts at Oahu’s famed North Shore.
An innovator in the field, Grannis suction-cupped a waterproof box to his board, enabling him to change film in the water and stay closer to the action than any other photographer of the time. He also covered the emerging surf lifestyle, from “surfer stomps” and hordes of fans at surf contests to board-laden woody station wagons along the Pacific Coast Highway. It is in these iconic images that a sport still in its adolescence embodied the free-spirited nature of an era—a time before shortboards and celebrity endorsements, when surfing was at its bronzed best.
Leroy Grannis’s initial foray into surfing began at age 14, but it wasn’t until the age of 42 that he picked up a camera and made a career out of it. Under doctor’s orders to take up a hobby, Grannis built a darkroom in his garage and began shooting surfers at Hermosa Beach, and "Photo: Grannis" quickly became a hallmark of the California surf scene of the 1960s. Grannis is considered one of the most important documentarians of the sport, and was inducted into the Surfing Hall of Fame in 1966. He died on February 3, 2011.
Over the past decade working as Surfer magazine's globe-roaming editor at large, photojournalist Steve Barilotti has made it his business to document the sport, art, and lore of surfing. He has also written for The Perfect Day and books by renowned surf photographers Art Brewer and Ted Grambeau.
Jim Heimann is the Executive Editor for TASCHEN America. A cultural anthropologist, historian, and an avid collector, he has authored numerous titles on architecture, pop culture, and the history of Los Angeles and Hollywood, including TASCHEN’S Surfing, Los Angeles. Portrait of a City, and the best-selling All American Ads series.

'Men Photographing Women in the 1970s' by Michael Abramson, 96pp, paperback, pink foil, 175 x 120mm.
Once a month, in 1970s Chicago, men were allowed to take cameras into underground strip clubs. Michael Abramson, a local photographer, thought it would be more revealing to photograph the men photographing the women. Left in a drawer until now, the resulting images are a fascinating, funny and at times unsettling portrayal of the uninhibited male gaze.
Introduced by Midge Wilson.
Michael Abramson (1948-2011) was an American photographer best known for his work documenting the nightlife of black night clubs on the south side of Chicago. His photographs can be found in the permanent collections of many major American institutions including the Smithsonian, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Chicago History Museum, the California Museum of Photography and more.

Author Marcel Beyer gets us to witness an evening at the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg attended by a host of celebrities—a reception in honour of Andreas Gursky. In his waspish descriptions of the images, the writer, who relies on widely disseminated and easily accessible photographic material, takes umbrage at the way executives, football managers, and actresses confidently push themselves in front of the art. In the process he produces an ironic commentary on Gursky’s series of large-format, decorative pictures. Beyer’s essay is based on a lecture that the writer gave in spring 2017 at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum at the launch of the DFG Research Training Group (GRK 2132) “Das Dokumentarische: Exzess und Entzug”. The audience who attended the event now respond to the talk in writing: with comments, remarks, and ripostes.
Marcel Beyer (b. 1965 in Tailfingen) is a German writer, epic poet, essay writer, and editor. He received the Georg Büchner Prize in 2016.

‘I first met Blondey in early 2013. He was really quiet when I first shot him; he was only fifteen. There are certain people you meet, male or female, who just have a power to them, you can put anything on them and they really carry it off—Blondey had that.I remember getting the pictures back—and he’s probably not going to be very flattered by this—and I thought he had something of a very young Shaun Ryder about him. The thing is, Blondey never looked soft.’ —Alasdair McLellan
Blondey 15-21 is the fifth book by the photographer Alasdair McLellan and it his first to focus on a single subject: Blondey McCoy.
Meeting and photographing the skater when he was fifteen years old, McLellan has since gone on to photograph Blondey many times, covering each year since that initial meeting. Their close working relationship has gone on to define a distinct period of time in Blondey’s life, one that is a seven-year rites-of-passage story.
‘A lot has happened to Blondey since 2013. He is now 21 years old, on the cusp of turning 22—although, by his own admission, it feels more like 32. A weariness has crept into his demeanour. This replaced his earlier shyness. In between there has been drunkenness, obnoxiousness, coke bloat, fragility, vulnerability, charm, humorousness, imperiousness, kindness, intelligence, honesty —and sometimes all of the above, all at once. Along the way, he lost a front tooth—he can’t really remember how—and people have watched him being knocked over by a black cab many hundreds of thousands of times. He’s gone from Bambi to ennui, you can see it in his eyes; it’s all in the pictures.’ —Jo-Ann Furniss

Wild, brash, outrageous and laced with humour, Dougie Wallace's unflinching photos capture the extreme variety of street life in one of London's most iconic and colourful areas: Shoreditch.
East London-based photographer Dougie Wallace grew up in Glasgow (hence his moniker ‘Glasweegee’).

The companion volume to Peter Lindbergh’s first self-curated exhibition
The first-ever exhibition curated by Peter Lindbergh himself, shortly before his untimely death, Untold Stories at the Düsseldorf Kunstpalast served as a blank canvas for the photographer’s unrestrained vision and creativity. Given total artistic freedom, Lindbergh curated an uncompromising collection that sheds an unexpected light on his colossal oeuvre. This artist's book, the official companion to the landmark exhibition, offers an extensive, firsthand look at the highly personal collection. When it came to printing his photos, Lindbergh chose a special uncoated paper – a thin sheet with a soft, open surface – as a deliberate aesthetic statement.
Renowned the world over, Lindbergh’s images have left an indelible mark on contemporary culture and photo history. Here, the photographer experiments with his own oeuvre and narrates new stories while staying true to his lexicon. In both emblematic andnever-before-seen images, he challenges his own icons and presents intimate moments shared with personalities who had been close to him for years, including Nicole Kidman, Uma Thurman, Robin Wright, Jessica Chastain, Jeanne Moreau, Naomi Campbell, Charlotte Rampling and many more.
This XL volume presents more than 150 photographs—many of them unpublished or short-lived, often having been commissioned by monthly fashion magazines such as Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Interview, Rolling Stone, W Magazine, or The Wall Street Journal. An extensive conversation between Lindbergh and Kunstpalast director Felix Krämer, as well as an homage by close friend Wim Wenders, offer fresh insights into the making of the collection. The result is an intimate personal statement by Lindbergh about his work.
Peter Lindbergh(1944–2019) was a master of his craft who made his mark in the halls of photography history, with such credits as shooting the first American Vogue cover under Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour, bringing together for the first time a group of young women who would become the ’90s supermodels, and numerous exhibitions at renowned institutions including Victoria & Albert Museum in London and Centre Pompidou in Paris, as well as in solo exhibitions at Hamburger Bahnhof, the Berlin Museum for Contemporary Art, Bunkamura Museum of Art in Tokyo, the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow, and Kunstpalast in Düsseldorf.
The contributing authors
Since 2003, Felix Krämer has been the curator of many notable exhibitions and the author and editor of numerous publications on modern art. In 2013, he was named Chevalier of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres. After working at the Hamburger Kunsthalle and the Städel Museum in Frankfurt am Main, Krämer has been General Director of the Kunstpalast in Düsseldorf since October 2017.
Director, author, and photographer Wim Wenders is one of the most prominent German filmmakers today. He is best known for Paris, Texas (1984), Wings of Desire (1987), Pina (2011), and The Salt of the Earth (2014), a documentary about Sebastião Salgado which he co-directed. Many artists have been influenced by his works, among them his close friend, the late Peter Lindbergh.
