Book Review: TRACE – Kota Ezawa, Tabitha Soren, Penelope Umbrico

TRACE is the first of a triptych series published by Yoffy Press. Since the Spanish word for ‘Three’ is Tres, I enjoyed the ironic play on words and double meaning for this publication of three separate books by artists Kota Ezawa, Tabitha Soren and Penelope Umbrico. Each book could stand on its own for the […]

Interview with photographer Alexey Vasilyev

Cary Benbow (CB): Why do you photograph? What compels you to make the images you create? Alexey Vasilyev (AV): I take pictures because I know how to do it, and it would be silly not to do something that you can do the best of all. At least, I want to believe that I know […]

Book Review: Silent Kingdom by Christian Vizl

It is rare, at least in my experience, that so many (five plus the photographer) contribute texts to a book on photography and so I first go to the book jacket’s inner sleeve to see who they are. Unsurprisingly – we are living in narcissistic times – all of them (with one exception) are described […]

Book Review: Moon Shine by Rachel Boillot

In order to survive, we human beings do just about everything. We’ve even invented time – an organisational tool that is immensely useful (and secures Swiss watch makers a decent income) but also terrorises us. From Lisa Volpe, who contributed the essay “Natural Rhythms: Time in the Cumberland Plateau” to this tome, I learn that […]

Book Review: Sol Y Tierra by Emily Matyas

Given the present political climate in the United States of America, I automatically think of Mr Trump’s border wall obsession when being confronted with the subtitle of “Sol y Tierra” which is, “Views Beyond the U.S.-Mexico Border, 1988-2018.” Photographer Emily Matyas however does not engage in a discussion about border security but shows with a […]

Book review: Real Pictures: Tales of a Badass Grandma by Peggy Nolan

The rough, coral-red fabric cover for this book matches a photo album in my parent’s home. My own childhood is documented inside that album, and several more like it with photos of birthday celebrations, first-day-of-school portraits, and me at five years of age holding a banana while standing next to an incredibly tall sunflower. My […]

Book Review: This Empty World by Nick Brandt

What you get to see in this tome are colour photographs of animals and people in situations that seem somewhat unreal and, I learn from reading the accompanying texts, are staged. Photographer Nick Brandt writes that “with absolute inevitability, nearly everyone is assuming that I photographed the animals and then dropped them, via Photoshop, into […]
