Sign This Book!

Apologies for the lack of post as of recent, we have been super busy cutting, taping and of course doing a bit of collage around the studio getting ready for the next issue of Nutopia Magazine. We are getting a bit excited about this radical issue and look forward to presenting it to you soon.

However in the meantime as always here is some cool things going on in the world of photography, new york and book signings, well mainly just book signings.

First off Tonight, Dashwood, our local & favorite photo book store are up to their usual old tricks again, amazing photographers paired with brilliant signed books with a side of a few crates of Heineken. If you missed the last time around, Ari Marcopoulos & his incredible silver and black book cover this is your chance to redeem yourself. Leigh Ledare will be signing copies of his first semi autobiographical book, Pretend You're Actually Alive which captures his Mother's fleeting attempts to regain her youth and find love, or at least attention.

Friday April Twenty Fifth

{Thirty Three Bond Street B/W Bowery & Lafayette}

And in other book signing news, The ICP Store has announced it's whammy of a spring/early summer photographic book autographing extravaganza. Its welcomes the likes of Ron Galella, Nakki Goranin, Heavy Light Artists, Justin Guariglia & Jessica Todd Harper and their respective books. The ICP plans to roll out these events each Friday night starting May Second and with their classy complimentary wine & DJ it might just be an appropriate place to start the weekend.

Here is a bit about each in the current lineup:

Ron Galella
May Second
Warhol by Galella: That's Great
Galella famous for snapping pictures of famous people unannounced. Brando famously announced his discontent with Galella & his ways via a fist in the photographers face. Long story short, Andy was fascinated by him, they mingled together, pictures were taken and out comes a book thirty years later.
Nakki Goranin
May Sixteenth
American Photobooth
Goranin has taken something we have all seen, been in at some point and of course all bloody waited for, The Photobooth and turned it into not only a book but a piece of Americana. The book takes us all the way back to the history and invention of the booth while also sourcing from twenty five years of images taken in them. It looks amazingly brilliant & the best part, you can get it for about the price you would pay for six strips from a "retro" photobooth at say, The Union Pool.

Heavy Light Artist
Also May Sixteen
Various Books by Japanese Artists
This night coincides with a massive exhibition hosted by The ICP featuring the works of The Japanese super crew Heavy Light. For those interested the exhibition is called Heavy Light: Recent Photography & Video from Japan opening this very night till September Seventh. Two books we found of interest in this massive lot are Half Awake and Half Asleep in the Water by Asako Narahashi & Asakusa Portraits by Hiroh Kikai. The first features an impressive introduction from the likes of Martin Parr and posses stunning dreamlike images that question life & death and the second hold a portfolio of black & white street portraits from an area in Japan where religion & pleasure mix. However these are a mere two in the plethora of autographed books on offer this evening at ICP, if you covet signed books, this our friends is the place to be.
Justin Guariglia
May Twenty Third
Planet Shanghai
As everything else seems to be going the way of China it seems only natural Guariglia, a regular of National Geo & Smithsonian magazines would end up in one of it's busiest cities with camera in hand. This book does what most books focused on cities do, attempt to capture it's uniqueness & day to day via the eyes of the photographer. And it looks as if fashion, particularly that amazing pajama like red & creme circular patterned suit are an important commodity in the Pearl of the East.
Jessica Todd Harper
June Sixth
Interior Exposure
This one looks quite impress & stunningly beautiful. It dates back to a project Harper started in high school documenting her ailing grandmothers Alzheimer's and has since transformed into intimate exposures of her family, mainly on the female side. She incorporates lengthy exposure times with delicate natural light in highly intelligent compositions and as you can see the results are simply incredible.

Speaking of rather lengthy we think we should tie this one up. We hope you enjoyed it and we really hope someone ends up buying one of these signed treasures.

Signing off,
