Valerio Bispuri – ENCERRADOS: 10 years, 74 prisons

Encerrados is a long voyage lasted ten years, through 74 prisons across all the Latin American countries; a journey born from the desire to recount a continent through prisoners’ world.

Ryan Spencer: Such Mean Estate

Ryan Spencer: Such Mean Estate

Disaster can be explosive and theatrical or quiet and ominous. The photographs that make up Such Mean Estate are images appropriated from films about apocalypse. However, rather than a survey of disaster movies, they create a narrative from specific frames whose contents range from high drama to the banal. When taken as a whole, the conjunctions and themes of the…
Martin Stavars: Nightscapes

Martin Stavars: Nightscapes

Every day I watch the evolution of over 170 different buildings in China, the Emirates, South Korea…

Jose Diniz: Periscope

For eight years, photographer Jose Diniz searched the Brazilian coastline as a castaway. All the way from Maranhão to Rio Grande do Sul – extending through Uruguay – he captured images of people, buildings, the horizon and the sea always from a particular perspective: facing, under or over the water. Contrary to what many might think, Diniz did not use…

Josef Koudelka: Exiles

Josef Koudelka: Exiles

About Exiles, Cornell Capa once wrote, “Koudelka’s unsentimental, stark, brooding, intensely human imagery reflects his own spirit, the very essence of an exile who is at home wherever his wandering body finds haven in the night. ” In this newly revised and expanded edition of the 1988 classic, which includes ten new images and a new commentary with Robert Delpire,…
Misha Gordin: Crowd and Shadows of the Dream

Misha Gordin: Crowd and Shadows of the Dream

21st Editions brings together two distinct bodies of work from one of the most fascinating photographers we have ever published. In Crowd, Misha Gordin’s variations on the theme are at once subtle and yet universally appealing. Quietly powerful, graphically dynamic, Gordin’s silent figures compel the mind to explore not only the viewer’s own meanings, but those of humanity writ large.…

While the quality of those photographs was well known, the circumstances under which they were taken were largely obscure. Now, thanks to thorough research work, a new chapter in the history…
