Through portraits and candid observation he buildsan honest and intimate record of a small and tight-knit community.

As hewandered through the city he began to recognise that its landscape offeredan unexpected vision – its spaces almost stage sets in which contemporaryBeijing plays out a complex struggle – a city caught between two worlds, anancient past and a frenzied present. Included are images of the constructionof major projects – the Opera House, Grand National Theatre and OlympicStadium – all part of a massive rebuilding programme.Included is an interview between Ambroise Tézenas and the Magnumphotographer Patrick Zachmann.Winner of the 2006LEICA European Publishers Awardfor PhotographyNEW TITLES

In 1996, his book Ray’s a Laughbrought him to the attention of the photography and art worlds.

At its peakCumbria was the worst affected county in Britain with a staggering 41% of allcases. For the local community the environmental and social consequenceswere to prove devastating.As a local resident, leading UK photographer John Darwell found himselfsurrounded by the effects of the disease. Over the next twelve months hecommitted himself to recording what was taking place. Despite governmentreports to the contrary, the Cumbrian countryside became largely a ‘no-goarea’, whilst on the farms thousands of animals were destroyed, their bodiesburnt on the now notorious pyres. The ultimate clean-up of the infected farmsled to extraordinary lengths being taken to eradicate the virus.Dark Days represents, perhaps, the most complete record of this time andprovides a powerful and emotive insight into one of the most dramatic anddestructive periods in British farming history.£25.00 / $45.00 USAHardback, 96 Pages69 colour photos, 280mm x 215mmApril <strong>2007</strong>ISBN: 1-904587-41-0The Mother Of All JourneysDinu LiInspired by the memories of his mother, originally told to him as bed-timestories, Dinu Li’s photographs tease out fragmented moments in time. Licollaborated with his mother, using each other’s recollections as startingpoints and comparing the actual with the images lodged in their minds.He charts rural traditions from 1920s China and the communist ideologies ofthe late 1940s. Spanning two decades from the mid 50s, Li turns his attentionto a Hong Kong at a stage of transition, morphing from fishing village tourban metropolis. Under British administration, it was a time of sweatshopsand western influences.

The photos lent themselves immediately to children’s books, and by1915 Frees had published several. His mother made most of the early outfits,which were designed to hold the animals in what can only be described as‘unnatural’ poses. In all his books though, Frees reassured readers that thephotographs were made possible ‘only by patient unfailing kindness on thepart of the photographer at all times’.His work was popular for several decades, and he continued to photographand publish books until his death in 1953. Almost a century on, his workremains as surprising and appealing as ever.Painted LadiesPostcards of the early 20th centuryEdited by Nick HedgesIn the early 20th century the picture postcard provided an immediate anddirect form of cheap communication – rather like text messaging today. Madeby anonymous photographers and hand-coloured by thousands of unknownwomen working in their studios, hand-tinted cards became one of the mostpopular of art forms. This extraordinary collection encompasses cards fromthroughout the world including Africa and the Middle East, many raisingissues of colonialism, and exoticism, but many also just celebrating everydayrelationships, friendship and family.Painted Ladies provides a colourful and fascinating insight into the fashion,culture and interests of the early twentieth century.The Dodo & Mauritius Island:Imaginary EncountersHarri KallioA wonderful photographic tribute to the curious, comical Dodo.£25.00 / $45.00 USAHardback, 104 pages150 colour photographs, 300mm x 240mmISBN: 1-904587-13-5Not available in Germany, France, Spain, Italy, GreeceWinner LEICA European Publishers Award£16.99/ $30.00 USAHardback, 160 pages150 colour photographs, 170mm x 240mmISBN: 1-904587-11-9Not available in GermanyAward winning photographer Harri Kallio creates the illusion that the Dodo,perhaps the most famous extinct species, is still alive, on the unspoilt haven ofthe island of Mauritius.

They present ordinary American life – a grandmother on a dayout with her grandchildren; a woman sprawled naked on a bed hiding herface from the camera; three smiling schoolgirls in matching dresses; a youthshowing off his gun – yet, with time, their points of reference have shifted,and images that began as simple, direct and personal now begin to attractother meanings, other interpretationsThese photographs retain an extraordinary intimacy – the intimacy thatdanced in the eyes of family photographers as they framed the everyday livesof ordinary people – as it was in New England in the Fall of 1968.RECENT TITLES

He uses it in extraordinary ways, conveying a rich sense of placeand atmosphere. The subjects he chooses are everyday situations – the bars,the cafes, the streets – and the resulting images are revealing and powerful.Award winning photographer Lorenzo Castore was born in Florence in 1973.A member of Agence VU, he has worked in Europe, India, United States,Cuba and Mexico and has exhibited throughout Europe.Winner LEICA European Publishers Award for PhotographyHomes Fit For HeroesBill Brandt,1939-43Texts by Peter James & Richard SadlerDespite Bill Brandt’s fame and considerable influence on the development ofmodern photography, the photographs in this book are a little known body ofhis work. Taken between 1939 and 1943, on assignment for the BournvilleVillage Trust, the photographs have never been previously published.Brandt illustrates housing conditions, forming distinct picture stories whichdirectly contrast slum and municipal housing. His careful use of lightemphasises this, and often there is a distinct narrative sequence – using theidea of ‘a day in the life’ – a device frequently seen in the influentialmagazine, Picture Post, for which Brandt regularly worked.In association with Birmingham Library Services and with the support of The Centre for Urban andRegional Studies, University of Birmingham.RECENT TITLES

She draws on thisbackground, using diptyches which juxtapose blackboard images of chalkedequations with carefully staged photographic images, connecting theabstraction of physical laws and the reality of experience.John Gribbin, award-winning popular science author, lucidly illustrateshow science uses imagery from everyday life as metaphors to communicatecomplex ideas.

Price £100Anatomy LessonsKaren InghamText by Professor Bernard Moxham, former President of theAnatomical SocietyEven today universities adhere to a time-honoured hierarchy of professors,readers, lecturers, demonstrators, and technicians – a structure first establishedin the European anatomical ‘theatres’ of the 16th and 17th centuries. Thesewere the players in the theatre of anatomy, but inevitably it was the cadaverthat took centre stage.Karen Ingham explores anatomy theatres and dissecting rooms in Edinburgh,Dublin, London, and Padua – and discovers spaces in which the notion ofsurface is probed and dissected in the search to create structure and meaning– to find what lies beneath. The body is a ghostly presence – yet in the theatreof anatomy even the lifeless stage may be imbued with a sense of drama.Asians in BritainTim SmithText by Naseem KhanThe story of Asians in Britain is extraordinary. From insignificant beginningsthe community has expanded and diversified beyond recognition, puttingdown its roots widely whilst maintaining a strong sense of origin.During the early 1900s small numbers of men from India, Pakistan andBangladesh settled in Britain. Larger numbers arrived during and after theSecond World War, when Britain used its links of Empire to satisfy a huge andgrowing demand for labour. They came to work and to improve the standardof living for themselves and their families back home. Though these pioneersinitially intended their stay to be temporary, most eventually sent for theirwives and children. The transient workers became settlers.Fairground AttractionJohn Comino-JamesEvery week between Easter and November around 200 funfairs open in citiesand towns across the UK. Some 4500 Travelling Showmen and their familiesrun them – an extraordinary group of people who make up what has beendescribed as the largest extended village in the country. Often wronglyconfused with other travellers and frequently seen as outsiders, showmenhave their own strong cultural identity. The fairground itself may be transientand may employ the most up to date electronic and mechanical technology,but the community is deeply rooted in tradition and strong family values.With texts written from conversations with showmen and a contextualisingessay, Fairground Attraction offers a unique insight into a fascinatingcommunity and way of life.BACKLIST TITLES

His work is held by major galleries and museums worldwide.Common Sense combines extravagantly lurid and luscious colour with Parr’strademark sense of irony. Though hilariously funny there is a sharp and bitingedge to the humour. The launch of this extraordinary book was celebrated bysimultaneous exhibitions in more than 40 different cities world-wide making itprobably the largest exhibition of work ever held by one artist – a truly globalproject.AutoportraitMartin ParrIntroduced by Marvin HeifermanFor several years, when Martin Parr has travelled he has had his picture takenby a local studio photographer, or street photographer, or in a photo booth.The result is a wonderfully varied portfolio of portraits ranging from elaboratestudio sets reminiscent of the heyday of the Victorian studio photographer,through to digitally manipulated images of Parr as Mr Universe, and imageswhich have been horrendously re-touched in the studio’s efforts to flatter Parrand make him appear twenty years younger. As with all Parr’s projects thebook is not only hilarious but also raises broader issues of identity and self,questioning the whole notion of the photographic portrait.Last ResortMartin ParrText by Ian WalkerMartin Parr’s classic 1986 book Last Resort remains hugely controversial.Described by some as cruel and voyeuristic, and by others as a stunning satireon the state of Britain, it established him as one of the world’s mostinfluential and admired photographers and revolutionised documentaryphotography in Britain.£25.00 / $45.00 USAHardback, 88 pages40 colour photos, 230mm x 297mmISBN: 1-899235-16-7‘If I had to put money on any of this year’s photography books becoming a classic,The Last Resort would be it.’ David Lee, Arts Review,1986From Our House To Your HouseSelected by Martin Parr‘Warm, funny and frequently hilarious – this is a wonderful collectionof cards celebrating the American Christmas.’Following on from his highly successful Boring Postcards, Martin Parr has puttogether another wonderful book from his personal collection of cards.
