Book Review: Bedmounds by Noah Kalina

Noah Kalina’s sculpted bedding photos are a combination of obvious, albeit clever staging and the lucky happenstance combinations of pattern, texture, lighting, and sculptural gravitas. His witty placement of lights, mirrors, camera placement and bedding remind me of Christo’s wrapped Pont Neuf bridge in Paris, or the covered Reichstag in Berlin, or any of his […]

Book Review: El Dorado Freddy’s by Danny Caine and Tara Wray

El Dorado Freddy’s: Chain Restaurants in Poems and Photographs, as a title, only scratches at the surface of the treasures within. It is described as a literary yet goofy book about American food and identity, and tackles such weighty subjects as Olive Garden, Applebee’s, and the conundrum of Pizza Hut cheese. Poet Danny Caine crafts […]

Book Review: And Here We Are: Stories from the Sixth Extinction by Bil Zelman

This book starts and ends with an illustration of the American chestnut tree. I grew up in central Indiana in the 1970s and 80s. There was an American chestnut tree in our side yard, and it eventually declined in health and was cut down. This is only one example of the kind of species or […]

Book Review: Little Romances by Jordanna Kalman

Jordanna Kalman photographs prints of her own photographs, and they become a physical object. She surrounds them with elements from her garden or other personal items. This is done not to evoke nostalgia or sentimentality but to deepen her physical connection and/or claim to the images and distance them from the viewer. Kalman poses questions […]

Book Review: Project Cleansweep by Dara Mcgrath

Dara Mcgrath, an Irish photographer interested in the transitional lives of spaces (those places where a relationship is created between architecture, history, landscape, built environment; and a dialogue of absence rather than presence), took more than 8 years to bring to end this project. At the end of 2011 McGrath, through a newspaper article, discovered […]

Book Review: Lost Venice by Sarah Hadley

Sarah Hadley interweaves the concept of memory with images that evoke a sense of the past, a place and a time particular to the Venice, Italy of her youth. But the idea of place is secondary to the concept of time. Time lost with a parent, time that now only exists or which can only […]

Book Review: To Hans by Vivian Keulards

“My brother Hans was 38 years old when he was found dead in a Berlin hotel room. He had suffered a cardiac arrest, caused by drugs. His death was a fact, the way he died a taboo. For years and years, we – his family – did not speak openly about his addictions,” Dutch conceptual […]

Book Review: Children of Grass: Portraits of American Poetry by B.A. Van Sise

Children of Grass: Portraits of American Poetry is an enriching and visually stimulating anthology that will enchant and win over lovers of both poetry and photography. “Poems are the product of abnormal thinking. They are the weirdos at the literary banquet, because they can be difficult, and uncompromising; they don’t offer an easy in or […]

Book review: Documentary Photography Reconsidered: History, Theory and Practice by Michelle Bogre

Something about this book has not let me get through it in one concentrated sitting;  I consider this to be a really great quality of a photography book. I always seem to get sidetracked and off on a tangent, or looking up information about the next subject or person I encounter. I have the same […]
