David Shama captures his subjects in moments of repose, set against the grit and grain of the sun-drenched South. Shama documents a road trip across an often-overlooked America of swamps, reptiles, scrapyards and cheap motels.

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.

'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

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.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

The book’s title reveals the identity of its protagonist: Kathleen McCain Engman has been posing for her son Charlie since 2009. And yet MOM shows us a face we never really get to know: while we soon become acquainted with her freckled complexion and intense gaze, her position in the images becomes increasingly unclear. Engman first began shooting his mother because she was available, ever-willing to meet the demands of one of her children. But what began as a casual, organic process evolved into an intense collaboration. The result is neither a family album nor a filial tribute but a much deeper and far more complex interaction: one that raises questions about the limits of familiarity, the rules and boundaries of roles and representation, vulnerability and control, and what it means to look and to be seen.
Borders are a means of separation. They separate two sides, defining a here and a there. But they also delineate what lies within the boundaries, instilling a sense of safety and security. Although they implicitly stake a claim to permanence, nothing is as changeable as boundary lines. So it is ironic that people and entire nations should develop so much pride and protectionism on the basis of existing borders, while knowing full well that these are artificial constructs that are constantly changing and sometimes disappearing altogether. – Roger Eberhard
Human Territoriality is a selection of Roger Eberhard’s photographs of former border regions around the globe and down through the course of human history. Some of these borders have shifted over time, by only a few hundred meters or much more, due to climate change or manmade changes in the landscape, others have vanished with the fall of mighty empires on either side. Eberhard’s photographs, supplemented by in-depth captions, help us to grasp the protean puzzle of the world’s cartography. In a time of mass migration, border walls and spreading nationalism, they reveal the inherent instability of these man-made demarcations.
Charlie Koolhaas presents a timely dialogue between words and images about a crucial moment in our recent history: the apotheosis of globalization and its current unraveling.
In her new book, Charlie Koolhaas takes us to London, Guangzhou, Lagos, Dubai and Houston, cities in which she has either lived or worked. Her personal and humorous account explores the rapid changes taking place in these culturally vastly different metropolises that are being united by the influences of global trade and the evolution of a shared global culture. A captivating combination of photographic documentary and written testimony. City Lust portrays a global landscape that contradicts the current pessimism—to reveal new creativities, unexpected possibilities and intimate connections that emerge despite huge global and economic divides.
Charlie Koolhaas, born 1977 in London, graduated in sociology from New York University and in Interactive Media from Goldsmith’s, University of London. She lives and works as an artist, photographer, and writer in Rotterdam. She has taught visual culture theory at TU Delft and Sandberg Instituut in Amsterdam, and has been a visiting lecturer at Strelka Institute in Moscow, ETH Zurich, HEAD Geneva, and Harvard Graduate School of Design.
‘After New York Living Rooms and Paris Living Rooms, voilà: Berlin Living Rooms, the third and final photographic instalment in the trilogy. It is the culmination of a project that started in 1995 when Tina Brown, then the editor-in-chief of the New Yorker magazine, commissioned me an essay. The idea was to photograph writers’ rooms without the writers present. I decided it would be more revealing and, above all, more exciting to feature the living rooms of a varied mix of prominent New Yorkers. Little did I know that this essay, which awoke a keen interest when it appeared in an October 1995 issue of the New Yorker, would take me on a photographic journey that would produce three books and that ends today in 2017!’

In the 1970s, photographer Hugh Holland masterfully captured the burgeoning culture of skateboarding against a sometimes harsh but always sunny Southern California landscape.
This never-before-published collection showcases his black-and-white photographs that document young skateboarders sidewalk surfing off Mulholland Drive in concrete drainage ditches and empty swimming pools in a drought-ridden Southern California. From suburban backyard haunts to the asphalt streets that connected them, this was the place that inspired the legendary Dogtown and Z-Boys skateboarders.
With their requisite bleached-blond hair, tanned bodies, tube socks, and Vans, these young outsiders evoke the sometimes reckless but always exhilarating origins of skateboarding lifestyle and culture.
Drenge (Boys) by Frederik Danielsen, depicts the formative period from boy to man. A period where one gets the first profound feelings and the first hard blows. This universal life phase takes place everywhere, but in Drenge it plays out in the Danish small island Als, the surroundings where Danielsen grew up. The island resembles outskirts, but Drenge are not a book about growing up on the edge of life in the cities. For the six boys depicted, the outskirts are the centre of existence.They are fixing mopeds, driving races, do not drink beer yet and only talk about girls when no one is listening. In Drenge, boyhood and everyday life are mixed with teenage nervousness, coming of age and raw Danish nature.
