The "edges" that Harry Gruyaert, a preeminent member of the Magnum photo agency, explores in this lush, full-color book are the oceans, seas, and rivers where humans meet the edge of the shoreline and the water begins. This unique volume, which opens from the bottom up, takes the reader to Israel's Dead Sea, the Niger River in Mali, the North Sea of Iceland, South Korea, and Biarritz, as Gruyaert's photos record the subtle chromatic vibrations of the edges of the far East and West. Gruyaert juxtaposes the hustle of the city with a pared-down, yet intense, nature. His landscapes are never empty; they are inhabited places where light, color, objects, people, and situations weave a serene, sublime scene. This beautifully produced photographic manifesto reveals the profoundly poetic character of Gruyaert's work, and the sensual elegance of his compositions.

In Driftless, Danny Wilcox Frazier's dramatic black-and-white photographs portray a changing Midwest of vanishing towns and transformed landscapes. As rural economies fail, people and resources are migrating to the coasts and cities, as though the heart of America were being emptied. Frazier's arresting photographs take us into Iowa's abandoned places and illuminate the lives of those people who stay behind and continue to live there: young people at leisure, fishermen on the Mississippi, veterans on Memorial Day, Amish women playing cards, as well as more recent arrivals, Lubavitcher Hasidic Jews at prayer and Latinos at work in the fields. Frazier's camera finds these newcomers while it also captures activities that seemingly have gone on forever: harvesting and hunting, celebrating and socializing, praying and surviving. Poetic and dark but illuminated with flashes of insight, this collection of photographs is a portrait of contemporary rural Iowa, but it is also more than that. It shows what is happening in many rural and out-of-the-way communities all over the United States, where people find ways to get by in the wake of closing factories and the demise of family farms. Taken by a true insider who has lived in Iowa his entire life, Frazier's photographs are rich in emotion and give expression to the hopes and desires of the people who remain, whose needs and wants are complicated by the economic realities remaking rural America.

New York in Color presents the best color photography of New York over the last century. From its iconic landmarks like Times Square and Coney Island to the visual poetry of its streets and skyline, New York presents an ever-changing visual collage best seen in color. Here, neon lights define the spirit of the night, a young Bob Dylan lingers in the snows of Greenwich Village, subway trains are rolling murals, and New Yorkers of every era become dramatic actors on the world’s greatest stage. Presenting work—much of it unknown—by major photographers, including such masters as André Kertész, William Klein, Helen Levitt, and Joel Meyerowitz, New York in Color is destined to be a classic photographic survey of the world’s most visually vibrant city. Praise for New York in Color: “Even in black-and-white, New York’s colors come through. They do so more vividly in New York in Color, a stunning, color-only anthology.” —New York Times “Shamis . . . is to be praised not only for his selections but also for the fine sequencing—we see a picture of Coney Island circa 1902, for instance, right before another circa 1956—that adds to our appreciation of the individual images.” —William Meyers, Wall Street Journal “The two hundred images represent a visual conversation about New York, one that is inflected with everything from soft, pastel hues to jolting reds and yellows. There is grit and grace, lightness and laughter. And, yes, tragedy—a selection of images near the end is devoted to the World Trade Center.” —New York Times Lens Blog “Offer[s] a rare glimpse of colorful city life. . . . Flipping through the book shows that New York City life was never gray” —New York Post “A fantastic collection and the perfect gift book for anyone who loves the city or fine photography.” —Connecticut Post “There’s no shortage of iconic black-and-white New York images. What you may be less familiar with, however, is the city’s rich history of color photography. This history is the subject of curator Bob Shamis’s stunning new coffee-table book, New York in Color, which is filled with some two hundred vibrant photos from the past hundred years.” —PureWow.com

Sightwalk, Gueorgui Pinkhassov's first book, is far more than just a book of photographs. It is a beautiful object and an extraordinary piece of design in its own right: a modernist Japanese photo album created from Oriental fabrics and papers, and bound by hand. Within, the sense of innovation and artistry is communicated through the photographs that explore the complex ways in which singular details such as plays of light and reflections can capture a spirit and shape an atmosphere. In these images, settings sometimes no longer make clear spatial or thematic sense. Rather, just like the artist's accompanying poetic texts that bring them to life, the pictures become a play on our perceptions.

The appreciation of Eggleston's work has come a long way since his pioneering 1976 exhibition, William Eggleston's Guide, at New York's Museum of Modern Art. He has been called the 'father of colour photography' and since the 1990s he is widely regarded as the leading and most influential colour photographer of the twentieth century. Ancient and Modern is a collection of photographs chosen from Eggleston's earliest photographs taken in the American South, Africa and England. The photographs depict subjects and objects from everyday life and it is Eggleston's unique ability to find beauty, and striking displays of colour, in ordinary scenes. Mark Holborn, in his illuminating introduction, writes about the dark undercurrent of these mundane scenes as viewed through Eggleston's lens: '[Eggleston's] subjects are, on the surface, the ordinary inhabitants and environs of suburban Memphis and Mississippi - friends, family, barbecues, back yards, a tricycle and the clutter of the mundane. The normality of these subjects is deceptive, for behind the images there is a sense of lurking danger.'

Chilean photographer Sergio Larrain (1931-2012) published very few books during his lifetime, but perhaps the most f�ted among them was Valpara�so. He photographed this Chilean seaport throughout his career, but it was in the early 1960s, when he returned to his homeland after travelling the world for many years as a Magnum photographer, that it became a focus for his attention. He saw it as 'a rather sordid yet romantic city', standing between the Andes and the Pacific Ocean, falling into a slow decline as its trading importance faded away, yet still retaining hints of beauty and magic. Now published in English for the first time with an introduction by Agn�s Sire as well as a specially written text by Nobel laureate Pablo Neruda, this new edition of Valpara�so is based on a layout that Larrain designed in 1993, in response to the original French edition of 1991. It also includes a selection of previously unpublished photographs taken between 1952 and 1992, expanding the original 36 images to a total of 120. This intimate book features handwritten notes and texts by the artist himself, allowing us to share his singular vision of the world and its moments of grace.

The snapshots that make up this provocative volume were taken 'on the fly', the product of exotic travel and a busy life, and left in a plastic box for years. Charles Traub's new interest in still life painting turned his attention back to the saved images which themselves were still lifes. Here they are 'still lives', frozen moments, often in poignant or ironic pairs that comment on each other and broaden the moments in our minds.
