Apologizes all for the lack of posts in the past few weeks, we at the fourm have been very busy putting together next months magazine & ticking off a few well needed vacation days. Anyhow we are back and ready to keep you informed/excited/motivated & whatever else we do for you.
Over this little break we discovered a gem of a bookshop just around the studio called Dashwood Books. It houses quite a collection of rare & out of print photography books as well as the current contemporary titles. However the beauty is they only carry photography books & their helpful and friendly staff are much more resourceful than those of Barnes & Noble or the likes. We highly recommend a visit & taking out a loan beforehand as it is not cheap.
As well as offering one of the best selections of photo books in Manhattan Dashwood also puts on book signings. Next Thursday, April 3rd at 6pm Ari Marcopoulos will be signing his new book "The Chance is Higher". Those not familiar with Marcopoulos will be immediately struck by the lo-fi aesthetic a good deal of his images & books have as a result of using a Xerox machine to print them.
Dashwood will have 700 limited edition copies at $85 a piece, while also offering 50 deluxe editions for an undisclosed price, whatever that may be.
