The Photobook: A History Volume III (Martin Parr, Gerry Badger)
$100.00

Following the success of volumes I and II of The Photobook: A History, this third volume brings the history of the photobook up to date, with specific exploration of postwar and contemporary examples. It covers key themes including the globalization of photographic culture, the personalization of photobooks, the self-publishing boom and the new ‘layered’ photobook approach.
While the history of photographs is a well-established canon, less critical attention has been directed at the phenomenon of the photobook, which for many photographers is perhaps the most significant vehicle for the display of their work and the communication of their vision to a mass audience. Volume III, co-edited by Martin Parr and Gerry Badger, expands this study and history of the photobook further. It explores the symbiotic relationship between the contemporary propaganda book vs. the protest photobook, sex and youth culture, photographers examining their own environments and the impact of the Internet and social media on the nature of the photobook, among much else.
The book is divided into 9 thematic chapters, each featuring general introductory text providing background information and highlighting the dominant political and artistic influences on the photobook in the period, followed by more detailed discussion of the individual photobooks. The introductory chapter texts are followed by spreads and images from over 200 books, which provide the central means of telling the history of the photobook. Chosen by Parr and Badger, these illustrations show the most artistically and culturally important photobooks in three dimensions, with the cover or jacket and a selection of spreads from the book shown.

Harry Gould Harvey IV - Canadian Fruit
$35.00

Canadian Fruit - 2013
Canadian Fruit is a Semi-Fictional Narrative based on my personal honeymoon. The story is making attempts to be descriptive and making note of the traditional “american honeymoon”. While framing a back story of a rather ambiguous fictional tale of sexual tendencies – the still lives are meant to break from reality and remove you from the story itself. I hope to make imagery with the fruit/objects/landscapes that try to create visual sexual connotations mixed with other documentary type images with food gone bad after returning from my honeymoon.
