  • Bruce Gilden: Lost & Found

    Bruce Gilden

    Product Code: CBQUO
    Hardback
    An iconic street photographer with a unique style, Bruce Gilden is defined by his exuberant pictures, and his original and direct manner of shooting the faces of passers-by with a flash. But how has his style evolved? When digging through his personal archives recently, Gilden unearthed hundreds of unseen contact prints and negatives taken by him in New York between 1978 and 1984, preceding those in his seminal collection Facing New York. From these thousands of original images - most of which are previously unpublished - Gilden has selected the eighty images that are reproduced here. Brimming with youthful energy, and all taken without the flash for which he is now famous, Gilden's photos celebrate all that New York City - at once familiar and exotic - had to offer. It is an exceptional study of a now-vanished era. In this extraordinary gallery of portraits, the compositions simmer with energy, bursting with the most diverse characters, as though Gilden intended to include within the frame everything that caught his eye. The images are accompanied by an interview with Gilden by Sophie Darmaillacq, in which Gilden explains for the first time how he developed his style from this early work, and gives details of the images and the stories behind them. In Lost and Found, we already perceive the guiding tropes of the work that was to make Bruce Gilden famous: sustained movement and tension, unrivalled spirit, and an instinctive and irreverent affection for his subjects - perfectly in cahoots with his city.

    Richard Avedon

    Product Code: CAYVF
    Hardback
    The first survey of Richard Avedon's influential advertising work Richard Avedon was one of the most sought-after and influential advertising photographers in America from the 1940s to the beginning of the 21st century, creating work that exemplified Madison Avenue at the height of its influence in world culture.

Avedon Advertising tells this story, reproducing memorable ads that range from the buoyant 1940s and 1950s, when post-war prosperity opened up new experiences to consumers; through the explosive '60s; and into the era defined by celebrity culture and global brand awareness.

  • Fierce Beauty

    Eric Meola

    Product Code: BZRTO
    Hardback
    Eric Meola became interested in storms during a 1977 road trip across Nevada to photograph an album cover for musician Bruce Springsteen. While driving in the desert they encountered a violent storm, and Springsteen wrote a song about the experience called 'The Promised Land,' saying later of those photographs: "Eric caught some great pictures but what he really captured was something in the sky and in the lay of the land that deeply revealed the grandeur and character of the country." Meola was transfixed as well by the display of nature's fury, stating: "I always wanted to go back to that day when we drove up on a hilltop and watched as lightning revealed the valley floor." Meola began to photograph the tornadic storms of the Great Plains - the area in America's heartland west of the 98th meridian and east of the Rockies. Driving through the area known as Tornado Alley - from the Rio Grande in southern Texas, north to the Canadian provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan - he photographed a forbidding landscape where atmospheric instability collides with moisture from the Gulf of Mexico and spectacular cumulonimbus clouds form at twilight. Over a period of several years he documented a landscape of elemental forces, where immense storms percolate miles above the ground, rotating with energy until tornadoes spin on the horizon. And he discovered a country of haunting beauty where the wail of coyotes and the glow of constellations fill the prairie's void with simple graces. "This book extends that narrative and reaches something profound," says Bruce Springsteen of these new photographs. Fierce Beauty: Storms of the Great Plains includes more than 100 photographs of tornadoes, lightning, dust storms, and storm phenomena, as well as a detailed and vivid description of a moment-by-moment close encounter with a cataclysmic tornado by renowned storm chaser and meteorologist William T. Reid.
