Photographing America by Agnes Sire
Book DescriptionWalker Evans and Henri Cartier-Bresson belonged to the same generation and shared an insatiable intellectual curiosity. Their works had been exhibited together in 1935 at the Julien Levy Gallery in New York and they shared a period working in America when Cartier-Bresson spent eighteen months between 1946 and 1947 preparing his show at The Museum of Modern Art. This book draws a parallel between the work about America made by Evans and Cartier-Bresson in the period from 1930 to 1947. As John Szarkowski argued, Evans defined in his work the essence of the documentary aesthetic. Cartier-Bresson, on the other hand, was making a fresh start, leaving behind his work in moving imagery and fully embracing a career as a stills photographer. But they were both approaching their work as a form of social criticism, imbued with references to literature and painting. "Photograph America" presents an opportunity to confront and compare the visions of both of these seminal photographic masters at once.

Sergio Larrain:Valparaiso, Hardback (January 2017)
Chilean photographer Sergio Larrain (1931-2012) published very few books during his lifetime, but perhaps the most feted among them was Valparaiso. This English edition of Valparaiso is based on a layout that Larrain designed in 1993, in response to the original French edition of 1991. It also includes photographs taken between 1952 and 1992.
Howard Greenberg Collection, Hardback (December 2014)
Howard Greenberg has been a gallery owner for more than thirty years, and is considered one of the pillars of the New York photographic scene. This collection illustrates New York's enormous influence on twentieth-century photography: dynamic architecture and urban life as seen in the photographs of Berenice Abbott, Weegee and Lee Friedlander.
Sergio Larrain, Hardback (October 2013)
Sergio Larrain (1931-2012) crossed the photographic universe like a meteorite. After much travelling, his concern for purity and his attraction to meditation led him to withdraw to the Chilean countryside and live self- sufficiently. This book features a selection of essential letters, drawings, workbooks and handwritten texts about meditation.
