Arbus, Friedlander, Winogrand. New Documents, 1967.

Issued on the 50th anniversary of the historic MOMA show.

If New Documents didn’t launch the careers of these three, it was at least the booster that edged them (and maybe the curator) into the stratosphere.

There was no publication to accompany the 1967 show, but this is a lot more than a belated catalog. It is a document that verges on a forensic level of detail. In addition to reproducing every photograph in the show it presents a plethora of ephemera, including installation photos, floorplans, photos of the opening party, scans of typewritten documents & communications from the planning stages, newspaper clippings, reviews and more. More than you ever need to know, but outstanding fun for any photo history nerd.

Pretty much the same here. My book buying binge has continued and the mail carrier brought my copy of "Modern Color" just a couple of hours ago. I've been in heaven looking at those wonderful photos. And the reproduction is truly amazing, almost like beautifully done inkjet prints pasted on every page.

I'll delve into a bit of red wine a little later as soon as I come down from my cloud--don't wanna mix wine with my "photo high".

Tis brilliant. The introductions/forewards are a fabulous read.

Just bought a book on Irving Penn from the show that's currently showing at the Frist Center in Nashville. There are roughly 200 images in the show and book.

If you're in the Nashville area it's well worth going to see it.

A look at the spooky/kitch side of the southern parts of the USA. Some of the best photos I've seen shot with an SWC (I assume). Couldn't go wrong for a tenner.

Yes. I bought this while really looking for a copy of Grapevine, which I've still not found and have pretty much given up hope on.

Diane Arbus - In the Beginning

I would say is a must own book, its more raw, most of it in 35mm.. Even more raw than the work she is known for.. The print quality is top notch

I've been looking at the Fred Herzog book as mentioned and am really looking forward to the Eggleston Election Eve book this summer...

Pre-ordered an upcoming book by Moriyama. Actually it sounds amazing, considering how rare his various Record books have become:

Daido Moriyama: Record

by Mark Holborn


Inspired by Japanese photographers, as well as by William Klein’s seminal photography book on New York, Daido Moriyama moved from Osaka to Tokyo in the early sixties to become a photographer. He became the leading exponent of a fierce new photographic style that corresponded perfectly to the abrasive and intense climate of Tokyo during a period of great social upheaval. Between June 1972 and July 1973 Moriyama produced his own magazine publication, Kiroku, which was then referred to as Record. It became a diaristic journal of his work as it developed. Ten years ago, after a decades-long interval, he was able to resume publication of Record. Now this book collects work from all thirty published issues, edited into a single sequence, punctuated by Moriyama’s own text as it appeared in the magazine. Produced at the magazine’s original size, with an introduction by Mark Holborn, this volume features more than 200 works from throughout the magazine’s history.
It used to be assumed that Moriyama’s peculiarly Japanese style was tied to his Tokyo roots. The evidence of the last ten years demonstrates that Moriyama, a restless world traveler, has been able to apply his unique vision to northern Europe; southern France; the cities of Florence, London, Barcelona, Taipei, Hong Kong, New York, and Los Angeles as well as the alleys of Osaka; the landscape of Hokkaido; and Afghanistan.

Release date is Sept. 2017.

Grabbed a signed copy of this fun little novelty idea - Martin Parr's Abandoned Morris Minors of the West of Ireland.
I was actually surprised to see this sell out within minutes.

Gave up waiting for a UK copy at a decent price so bought one from France, it's the pictures I want

Thanks for the Moriyama pointer from me as well.

Yes, likewise. I think Election Eve is possibly the high point of Eggleston's career.

I have "Election Eve" on pre-order with Amazon. Looking forward to it as well.

Most recent purchases include "Walker Evans: Depth of Field", "New Topographics", "Josef Sudek: Portraits", "Robert Polidori: Hotel Petra", "John Divola: As Far As I Could Get" and the retrospective "Lewis Baltz".

Quick/early critiques/observations for what they're worth:

The Evans book is certainly the best overview of his works I've seen--Evans being a great influence for me. The original Topographics show had such a great sway on subsequent landscape photography the photos now seem fairly standard--this is not a bad thing, just an observation of influences. Sudak's works are beautiful examples of studio portraits of the period. Polidori's "Petra" is a gorgeous presentation...beautiful abstractions printed on beautiful matte pages. I came away from the Baltz retrospective liking his early work even more than I did originally, however, I simply found nothing of interest in his last projects. Like the Baltz retrospective, I found in Divola's retrospective work that is variable--some projects enjoyable and some not so much.

I am waiting on delivery of J A Mortram's book 'Small Town Inertia' after backing it on kickstarter. He is a carer and photographer working predominantly with sufferers of mental illness and produces incredible black and white portraits of his subjects that couldn't be more humanely presented if he tried. The images are accompanied by quotes and passages from the subjects themselves, offering an insightful and often moving narrative of the current plight of social care and mental health services in the UK.

If anybody is unfamiliar with his work I would highly recommend checking it out. The book is currently being finalised and published by Bluecoat Press and seems to have hit close to home for an awful lot of people. In these polarised political times it is an exemplary body of work made in the finest of documentary traditions.

I must say, I enjoyed the Venezia Marghera series. As the original book was apparently limited to forty copies (!), with a suitably eye-watering price, the new retrospective is ASFAIK the only the only way for us ordinary folk to see this work.

Also recently received:

The Helen Levitt retrospective published by PowerHouse;
Max Kozloff - New York Over the Top (an art critic's unremarkable street photos);
Eyes Wide Open! 100 Years of Leica photography; and
New Documents, 1967.

A 1962 edition of the Focal Press guide to the full Agfa Silette range.

It seems that my Agfa Ambi Silette, with it's combined rangefinder/brightline finder window and '35, 50, 90' order means it's from 1957.

Thanks for the confirmation. I have only one book by Fukase, called 'Yohko', and I've been meaning to add Ravens for at least the last 20 years but always missed the boat, so I've finally taken the plunge today and ordered this new edition.
