Koto Bolofo by Koto Bolofo

Book Description

With a power serve of 129 miles per hour and countless titles to her name (including number one in the world), Venus Williams is an amazing force in the world of tennis. She stands 6'1" and possesses great reach, or "wingspan," and a rare mental tenacity that has put many, many trophies on her mantelpiece. It was thanks to Williams' tireless campaigning that the bizarre sexist tradition of awarding a smaller prize money to female tennis players was corrected, at least at Wimbledon and the French Open. (Amusingly, Williams herself became the first beneficiary of this amendment when she won Wimbledon in June, 2007.) Williams' ascent to fame has been meteoric from the first. At her Grand Slam debut at the 1997 French Open, she reached the final, and although she did not win that match, her world ranking shot up from 66 to 25 in one day. By 1999, she was number three, and by 2000 she had won a gold medal for the U.S. at the Olympics--the first of two, thus far. This sense of un-stoppability has always characterized Venus Williams, and makes her gripping to watch. Now the British fashion photographer Koto Bolofo has caught some of her magic on camera, in ways that have never been seen before. Granted unrivalled access to the athlete, during both her public tournaments and many private moments, Bolofo offers here a monumental portrait of one of today's greatest athletes.

Koto Bolofo by Koto Bolofo Koto Bolofo, Hardback (November 2016)

Hahnemuhle is the oldest paper mill in Germany - and indeed the world - which has consistently produced fine art paper since its inception over 400 years ago. This title captures Hahnemuhle's artisanal processes and antique machinery alongside today's most advanced technologies, uncovering the attention to detail, and more.

Koto Bolofo/Claudia Van Ryssen-Bolofo by Koto Bolofo Koto Bolofo/Claudia Van Ryssen-Bolofo, Hardback (April 2014)

Features black-and-white photographs that conspicuously favor close-up depictions of details as opposed to general views: leftover items, barbed wire fences, spacious dormitories viewed through a spyhole, the key in the lock to Mandela's cell which is so tiny it cannot be taken as a whole.
