The Erratics

The Erratics
Darren Harvey-Regan
RVB Books
979-10-90306-59-2
First edition
€ 35.00
In geology an erratic is a rock that differs in type from those around it, having been carried over large distances by long-vanished glaciers. Harvey-Regan’s eponymous series questions the medium of photography and its ability to extract from contexts and alter perception. Originating in the artist’s desire to liberate himself from the weight of representational imagery - a yearning for abstraction - alongside a converse desire to engage with appearances as only photography can, The Erratics began as a series of large format photographs in the Egyptian desert, capturing chalk monoliths in the most objective manner possible. These images were followed by months of meticulously carving and photographing chalk rocks in the studio, forcing a geometry and line to shape the objects towards the photographic surfaces they eventually become. The Erratics combines these sets of images within a new text work by Harvey-Regan that explores how the processes and concerns within the work might be further expressed and shaped through the act of writing.

The Levitators

The Levitators

979-10-90306-53-0
First edition
€ 25.00
The Levitators are a species of animals that originated from images of domestic dogs. Seeing these pets, now bred in all possible shapes and forms, it is  hard to believe that they descend from wild animals. In the photos they pose patiently for the camera of their owner, looking their best, tails wagging. To bring the dogs back to life, Ruth van Beek cuts and fold the images. Through this process of animation and fixattion many things go awry. In her attempt to make the dogs fly, they gradually loose their original dog-shape, transforming into fluffy objects, unsuccessful animals. Thus through this uncertainty they become moldable and open to new interpretations.

First edition
€ 45.00
A series of bloody attacks on Belgian supermarkets came to an end in the autumn of 1985. The attacks, perpetrated by a gang known in English as the ‘Gang of Nivelles’ and in Dutch as the ‘Bende van Nijvel’ left 28 people dead. The father of Jan Rosseel (b. 1979) was one of them.

Despite extensive police inquiries, a detailed dossier, recovered evidence and witness accounts, the assailants have never been caught and the attacks remain unsolved. This violent period is seen as one of the darkest pages in Belgian history. Today, almost thirty years later, the police investigation is still officially open.

This book is Jan Rosseel’s personal quest for the Gang of Nivelles, made up of photographs and documents, memories and references.

If This Is True I'll Never Have To Leave Home Again

If This Is True I'll Never Have To Leave Home Again
Robin de Puy
Ludion
978-94-9181-955-1
First edition
€ 40.00

Robin de Puy is a young Dutch photographer. She graduated from the Rotterdam Photo Academy in 2009 and won the Photo Academy Award in the same year, followed four years later by the National Portrait Prize. Her work has appeared in numerous Dutch and international magazines, including New York Magazine, Bloomberg Businessweek, Volkskrant and LINDA. After winning the National Portrait Prize in 2013, De Puy is regarded as one of the most talented Dutch photographers in the field of portraits. When the commissions began to pour in, she became uncertain. In 2014, De Puy felt that she was gradually losing her unprejudiced gaze. ‘It’s a challenge to maintain an unbiased gaze while the expectations of others (and my own expectations) continue to grow.’ So she made a radical decision: to undertake a 10,000 km journey through the United States by herself on a Harley Davidson. The purpose of the journey was to touch base, to return to what photography really means for her. The result can be seen in the The Hague Museum of Photography and in her first book: If this is true, I'll never have to leave home again, published by Ludion.

SOLD OUT
€ 75.00

Nico Krijno is interested in still lifes, whether the result of his discoveries – a wire fence damaged; the remains of a structure long-lost-or whether created in his studio, where he assembles irregular piles of rubbish colorful to photograph them. Nico Krijno bends and distorts human subjects on a variety of tests. The relatively simple design of the book reinforces the sense of chaos without it dominates, with pages in both matte and shiny and texts inserted on small leaflets and a detachable poster.

Private

Private
Mona Kuhn (US)
Steidl
9783869307091
First edition
€ 45.00

For her fifth book with Steidl, Mona Kuhn has entered the heart of the American desert and returned with a sequence of pictures that is seductive, enigmatic and a little unsettling. Private proposes a world in which concrete reality and the imaginary are one. Plants and animals on the edge of survival, sun-drenched landscapes and wind-sculpted earth are intercut with a series of nudes that push Kuhn’s renowned sensitivity to human form into unexpected directions. The result is a book somewhere between the poetry of TS Eliot, the cinema of Robert Altman, and a lucid dream.

Past Forward
Vincent Fournier (FR)
360 Publishing
9789081935708
First edition
€ 50.00

Photographer Vincent Fournier attempts in his images to create allegories of childhood dreams, where reality blends effortlessly with fiction. The meaning of the narratives therein intentionally oscillates between opposites – sense-nonsense, organic-artificial, truth-illusion, right-wrong, whole-part – in order to discover beauty in the unexpected. Whether the theme is space exploration and alien worlds, robotic entities, or engineered species, Fournier imbues his images with enough narrative elements to stimulate the evolution of a story, yet these tales always remain unfinished, sometimes absurd, ironical, or uncanny, and full of contradiction and anomaly. 270 p, ills colour, 21 x 27 cm, hb, English.
