    It was in 1978, during my first summer of making portraits while using an 8x10 inch large format camera, that I found myself drawn to photographing redheads.

    I have often been asked; 'why redheads,' and I've often felt it was because in summer redheads seem to bloom in the sun more gloriously than the rest of us. But it also might have been my living far out on the tip of Cape Cod, surrounded by all the blue light of sea and sky, which made me pay more attention to the flamboyant qualities of redheads. Their hair and the exotic markings of their skin in sunlight became even rosier and more astonishing in that blue atmosphere.

    Redheads, like film itself, are transformed by sunlight. It seems natural to me now that I would have paid attention to this new phenomenon as it appeared within the larger subject of the Cape itself. After making more than 50 portraits that first month, in which at least 30 were of redheads, I understood that this was an impulse to be taken seriously.

    I ran an ad in the local paper, the Provincetown Advocate: "REMARKABLE PEOPLE! If you are a redhead or know someone who is, I'd like to make your portrait, call...." They began coming to my deck, bringing with them their courage and their shyness, their curiosity and their dreams, and they shared their stories of what it was like to be a redhead. They spoke of the painful remembrances of childhood, the violations of privacy and name calling-"Hey, red," "freckle face," "carrot head." They also shared with me their sense of personal victory at having overcome this early, unwanted celebrity, and how like giants or dwarfs or athletes they had finally grown into their specialness and by surviving had been ennobled by it. You could say that they had been baptized by their own fire, and that their shared experience had formed a "blood knot" among them. I had begun making portraits with the intention of photographing ordinary people. But redheads are both ordinary and special.

    Their slender slice of the genetic pie accounts for only 2 or 3 percent of the world's population. As different as redheads are in terms of nationality and religion, they often give the appearance of a strong familial connection.

    My way of making portraits is not by getting down on my hands and knees, nor climbing high on a ladder, nor getting into bed with a celebrity, but simply standing eye to eye with anyone has found their way to me, young or old. I need only one or two sheets of film and the patience to see it through.

    This new edition of 'Redheads' will have a number of new and previously unseen portraits.

    Into the Wild book is an important book for Spring 2022 as it depicts people choosing an alternative lifestyle of living for surf rather than living to work due to social economic pressures. To them surf is a way of life and they love to drive their cars to where the best waves are, sleep overnight and wake up to surf the best waves. Sometimes they even surf at night during the full moon periods. This is a definite change of mentality of the younger generation right now - the youth who choose to live in the moment and enjoy an alternative lifestyle.

    This is a book about surfing and speaking to surfers. The journalist who is interviewing the surfers is a surfer himself and works for Stab Magazine - a well respected surf magazine based in LA that has a big online presence. They also plan big surf events and competitions so its very good for promotion to have their support.

  • Anglais From the pope to a flat white Ireland, 1979-2019

    • 16 September 2020

    Forty years of transformation and upheaval: compiling Martin Parr's longstanding love affair with Ireland Martin Parr (born 1952) has been taking photographs in Ireland for 40 years. His work covers many of the most significant moments in Ireland's recent history, encompassing the Pope's visit in 1979, when a third of the country's population attended Mass in Knock and Phoenix Park in Dublin, to gay weddings in 2019.

    Parr lived in the West of Ireland between 1980 and 1982. He photographed traditional aspects of rural life such as horse fairs and dances, but also looked at the first hints of Ireland's new wealth in the shape of the bungalows that were springing up everywhere, replacing more traditional dwellings. During subsequent trips to Ireland he explored the new estates around Dublin, documented the North and showed how, after the Good Friday agreement, the Troubles became the focus of a new tourist boom.

    The final chapter of this book portrays a contemporary Dublin where start-up companies are thriving, the docks area is being gentrified and where icons of wealth and modernity are ubiquitous. Ireland has also now voted to allow both abortion and gay weddings, developments that would have been unthinkable 40 years ago. Parr published a book of his original black-and-white photographs in 1984. A Fair Day had an introduction by Fintan O'Toole, who subsequently became Ireland's leading cultural commentator.

  • End of a century...

    In the late 1990s as a graduate from art school I began making pictures for my beloved Sleazenation magazine and in particular for the infamous listing pages to the rear of the magazine that were called "Savoir Vivre" (loosely translated as to know how to live!) The images were made in B&W and were immensely candid and full of characters that seems to be everywhere at that time.

    The images on the pages were essentially describing to those that liked to go clubbing what they actually looked like, what those in the provinces who desired the decadent lifestyle of the urban cool could eventually look like and for the international reader in the fashion capitals of Paris, Milan and Rome it kept them wondering what on earth was going on. London was at the epicentre of a cultural boom. Small clubs, parties and discos where a plenty in venues from North to South and I was in a minicab and night bus taking in 3-4 of an evening. My weekends were a write off and I slept most of Monday trying to recover...Here are the spoils for while my young son was sleeping I was involved in capturing a period in time that was filled with love, lust and messy authenticity, carefree and devoid of today's global, big tech cynicism. Nothing here was perceived or played out. It was done with wide eyed hope and wonder and I'm not sure we can ever return to this place or at least not for a good while. As my world as a photographer has expanded throughout the capitals of Europe and across the Atlantic shooting campaigns and fashion editorials for V magazine, POP and Vogue Hommes I can look at these pictures with perhaps some greater objectivity. My son, now in his early 20s sits beside me and discusses those times and how they differ from today as he negotiates the beginning of his creative journey.

    These pictures aren't about Teds, Skinheads, Northern Soul, Acid House or Jungle and Garage, they're not about Nu Metal or South London blackout clubs...but they are all here alongside high street carpet clubs because here in the UK we know how to throw a party, we work hard and play hard, grace under pressure, street style into high fashion To quote Ray Davies I ask, 'Where have all the good times gone'?

    I remain friends with many of the characters that were my colleagues at sleazenation at that time. Steve Beale and Justin Quirk were the irreverent editorial team eventually cherry picked by Emap and Conde Naste to become significant editors and creatives respectively. The Photo editor who gave me my break out of art school was Steve Lazarides who went on a few years later to represent and champion a graffiti artist called Banksy, The Magazines firebrand designer was for a while Scott King who immediately won awards for his controversial front covers and designs. I clearly remember meeting Wolfgang Tillmans at one of his exhibition openings in Herald Street in what must have been 1999. He raved about the pictures we had been making for the magazine and enjoyed the overall subversive sentiment. I was enthused and still am to this day. I'd suggest many of these collaborators to work alongside one another to help articulate and visualise this group of pictures into a book. Most of the images have never been seen before and I believe an international audience would be hungry for the authenticity found in an era that perhaps should have known better. I'm glad we didn't.

    La spirale fait sa première apparition dans l?oeuvre de Louise Bourgeois dans les années 1950. Depuis, ce motif n?a pas cessé d?apparaître aussi bien dans ses sculptures que dans ses dessins et peintures, et cela jusqu?en 2010, année de son décès. Ce livre, publié à l?occasion d'une exposition à la galerie Cheim & Read de New-York, est le premier ouvrage à attirer l?attention sur cette utilisation de la spirale, considerée par Louise Bourgeois comme une tentative de faire de l?ordre dans le chaos.

  • Ansel Adams avait développé un système de zonage allant de zéro à dix pour contrôler l'exposition de ses négatifs et obtenir des noir & blancs exceptionnels. Pour cet ouvrage, Mike Mandel s'est plongé dans plus de 50 000 images d'Ansel Adams disséminées dans quatre lieux d'archive différents. Il a conçu le déroulé intitulé "Zone 11" comme une volonté de proposer un nouveau regard sur le grand photographe de la nature américaine, pour montrer un Ansel Adams qui aurait outrepassé ses propres limites. Certaines de ses images sont des travaux de commande, d'autres sont le résultat de ses expérimentations au polaroïd, et elles sont agencées pour former une séquence inattendue.

  • Mistral est un portrait de la Provence observé à travers son vent légendaire. La photographe Rachel Cobb documente la présence de cette force de la nature sur la Vallée du Rhône et observe les liens étroits qu'elle entretient avec le territoire environnant, retrouvant ses traces dans l'architecture pro-vençale, dans l'agriculture, et dans tous les aspects de la culture régionale. Racontant un paysage qui avance au rythme des rafales, ces clichés propo-sent au lecteur une incursion intime dans une réalité qui doit au vent son identité, sa richesse et sa propre histoire. Pour la réalisation de cet ouvrage Rachel Cobb a régulièrement séjourné en Provence depuis les années 1980. Mistral est sa première monographie.

  • Written by two acclaimed scholars Okwui Enwezor and Chika Okeke-Agulu, El Anatsui, is the most comprehensive, incisive and authoritative account yet on the work of El Anatsui, the world-renowned, Ghanaian-born sculptor. The product of more than three decades of research, scholarship and close collaboration with the artist, this book shows why his early wood reliefs and terracottas, and the later monumental metal sculptures, exemplify an innovative critical search for alternative models of art making.

    The authors argue that the pervasiveness of fragmentation as a compositional device in Anatsui's oeuvre invites meditation on the impact of colonization and postcolonial global forces on African cultures. At the same time, the simultaneous invocation of resilience and fragility across his media invests his abstract sculptures with iconic power.

    Insisting on the intimate connection between form and idea in Anatsui's work, the authors show how, in his critically acclaimed metal works, the manual work of flattening, cutting, twisting, and crushing bottle caps and using copper wires to suture and stitch the elements into one dazzling, reconfigurable epic piece serves as a powerful metaphor for the constitution of human society.

    This book presents Anatsui as a visionary of incomparable imagination. Yet, it places his work within a broader historical context, specifically the postcolonial modernism of mid-twentieth-century African artists and writers, the cultural ferment of post-independence Ghana, as well as within the intellectual environment of the 1970s Nsukka School. By recovering these histories, and subjecting his work to vigorous analysis, the authors show how and why Anatsui became one of the most formidable sculptors of our time.
