Martin Parr & Wassinklundgre The Chinese Photobook

Martin Parr & Wassinklundgre The Chinese Photobook | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

In the last decade there has been a major reappraisal of the role and status of the photobook within the history of photography. Revisionist histories of photography as recorded via the photobook have added enormously to our understanding of the medium’s culture, particularly in places that are often marginalized, such as Latin America and Africa. However, until now, only three Chinese photobooks have made it onto historians’ short lists. Yet China has a fascinating history of photobook publishing, and the exhibition, coproduced by the Rencontre d’Arles and Aperture, will reveal for the rst time the richness and diversity of this heritage.

First PhotoBook shortlist Paris Photo: La Montagne Dorée by Myriam Ziehli

First PhotoBook shortlist Paris Photo: La Montagne Dorée by Myriam Ziehli | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

“The narrative structure of La Montagne Dorée is both innovative and engaging,” states Lesley Martin. The book tells the story of a region in the Swiss Alps in the midst of major real estate development. Drawing upon a local myth of a deal made with the devil to speed the construction of a bridge over an alpine valley, Ziehli creates a “fictitious” allegorical play. Each chapter of the book establishes a component of this play: the props, the cast, the costumes, and the set. “It’s a highly unusual and oblique approach to a topic that might otherwise be considered for a classic documentary story; this unorthodox structure—which in less deft hands might be utterly confounding—is clearly established at the outset with a brief text from the author and a clean, precise system of design.”

ECAL Library's insight:

Self published book available for 35 euros/43 chf (edition: 150 copies). Mail to myriam.ziehli@hotmail.com

5 best photography books of 2013

5 best photography books of 2013 | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Kawauchi’s new book, whose title combines the Japanese characters meaning “heaven” and “earth,” is an exploration into the relationship between humankind and time.

Schutmaat has spent the last few years documenting small mountainside towns in the American West, their inhabitants and the effects of mining on them.

Operating under the guide of philosopher Adi Ophir’s idea that God reveals himself through catastrophe, Broomberg and Chanarin create a bible of their own that explores the visual representation of conflict and the relationship between faith and violence.

The subtlety of chance and the invitation to experiment bring this visual literary collaboration together: an impeccable design by Hans Seeger, stories by John Cage and images by William Gedney.

Casotti’s journey brings us to the eastern side of Greenland, where he has photographed Inuit communities and explored why the area has the highest juvenile suicide rate in the world.
