"Площадь Революции". Светопись Ивана Филимонова
В альбом московского фотографа Ивана Филимонова вошла серия фотографий "Площадь Революции": современные поэты, запечатленные у скульптур станции метро "Площадь Революции". Каждый поэт представляет одно свое стихотворение, часть из которых переведены на английский. Параллельно идет рассказ о создании станции и истории людей, связанных с нею. Объединение городской среды, образного слова и художественного зрительного образа - вот, пожалуй, внешняя задача этой серии. Но главное - это повод задуматься о прошлом и настоящем нашей страны, о нашем личном месте в истории и о нашем отношении к величайшему событию XX века - Великой русской революции, встряхнувшей мир и отразившейся в судьбе каждого из нас.
Составитель: Иван Филимонов.

1991-1993. Фотоальбом Борко Дмитрий Три дня августа 91-го и две недели октября 93-го Дмитрий Борко провел у осажденного Белого дома, который назывался сперва Домом Правительства, потом стал Парламентом РСФСР, а в конце - суверенной России. Он работал фотокорреспондентом популярных московских газет. Сперва - "Независимой", утратившей впоследствии свою популярность. А затем - "Сегодня", и вовсе прекратившей существование. Чудом ему удалось сохранить большую часть отснятых тогда пленок и отыскать несколько листков блокнотных заметок.
Идея объединить эти события под одной обложкой - под условным названием "Две драмы в одних декорациях" - пришла давно. Но она так и осталась бы нереализованной, если бы не навязчивая повторяемость российской истории. Произошедшее 20 лет назад почти забыто и превратилось в пару клише из учебника новейшей истории. Но большинство участников тех событий еще живы. И вопросы, которые они пытались решать, актуальны и сегодня. Эта книга не дает ответов. Она просто рассказывает, как это было.

Babel Alberto Eliseo, Garcia Rodrigo From Tijuana to Tokyo: The making of the final film of Inarritu's acclaimed trilogy
Mexican film director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, along with top photographers Mary Ellen Mark, Patrick Bard, Graciela Iturbide, and Miguel Rio Branco, bring together their highly perceptive visions on cultural diversity in a book that combines seductive images and firsthand remarks on the unique experience of shooting Babel. Winner of the Best Director prize at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival, the film is the third in the director's trilogy started by Amores Perros and 21 Grams.
Shot in Morocco, Tijuana, and Tokyo, and involving a multilingual cast lead by Brad Pitt, Cate Blanchett, Gael Garcia Bernal, and Koji Yakusho, as well non-professional actors from the three countries portrayed, Babel continues the director's quest to explore the effects of loss and grief, and seeks to relate the modern implications of ancient myth on the origins of human inability to successfully communicate.
This book is a visual recollection of the parallel stories and real-life characters that revolved around the making of Babel, and the unexpected ways in which fiction and reality collide. Photographs both from the set and the surrounding disparate landscapes are paired with the director's personal commentary on the larger-than-life film shoot. Introduced with essays by novelist and poet Eliseo Alberto and Gonzalez Inarritu, as well as an interview with the director by Rodrigo Garcia, the result is an engaging book that both complements Babel's powerful statement on the barrier of language, and reveals the fascinating reality of the people and places that inspired the film.
The director: Born in Mexico City in 1963, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu studied filmmaking and theater and composed music for Mexican features before directing and producing his debut feature film, Amores Perros (2000), which was nominated for an Academy Award as Best Foreign Language Film and received over 53 awards from all over the world, including BAFTAs, the Golden Globes, Tokyo, Sao Paulo, Edinburgh, San Sebastian, and Toronto. Inarritu's follow-up film, 21 Grams (2003), which he directed, co-wrote, and produced, starred Sean Penn, Benicio del Toro, and Naomi Watts. Both Del Toro and Watts received Oscar nominations for their roles in the film and Penn won the Jury Prize for Best Actor at the Venice Film Festival. Babel, which will be released worldwide in November 2006, garnered the Best Director Prize at the 59th Cannes Film Festival. Inarritu lives in Los Angeles with his wife and two children.

Filippov Slava Bbook
Издательство Simple Publishing представляет альбом избранных работ фотографа Славы Филиппова.
Слава Филиппов знает, как одинаково интересно снять и портрет знаменитости, и рекламу магазина - когда изучаешь ремесло фотографа самостоятельно, волей-неволей приходится осваивать все жанры. Люди и места на фотографиях Славы подчас выглядят красивей и интересней, чем в реальной жизни - но при этом они не кажутся подделкой. Однако при этом в работах Филиппова нет искусственности, той слишком уж идеальной картинки, которая так часто портит впечатление от постановочных съемок. Его стиль можно назвать "живая ирония", и, наверное, именно за него Филиппова и ценят в редакциях ведущих глянцевых журналов.
Frida Kahlo. The Gisele Freund Photographs de Cortanze Gerard, Freund Gisele, Audric Lorraine In 1950, photographer Gisele Freund embarked on a two-week trip to Mexico, but she wouldn't leave until two years later. There she met the legendary couple Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. Welcomed into their home, she immersed herself in their private lives and the cultural and artistic diversity of the country, taking hundreds of photographs. These powerful photographs, among the last taken before Kahlo's death, bear poignant witness to Frida's beauty and talent.
Showcasing more than 100 of these rare images, many of which have never been published before, the book also includes previously unpublished commentary by Gisele Freund about Frida Kahlo, texts by Kahlo's biographer Gerard de Cortanze and art historian Lorraine Audric, as well as a link to a previously unreleased color film, shot by Freund, showing Diego Rivera at work.
"Offers the most intimate insights into her life and working process . . . both Kahlo and Rivera shine forth from these domestic images."
- New York Times

Igor Vereshchagin. Given & Stolen
There is a special magic in the moment when a photographer is making a deal with his vis-a-vis, thus defining
the miracle we call photography.
In this case the frame is an immersion, a joined effort, a dialogue.
Somebody is giving his or her image to a person with a camera, trusting that person and taking part in the creative initiative.
But is there an accurate word that defines something which originally belonged to the other and was taken from him or her without permission?
I am talking about a photograph taken without a permission. Digitalized sneak shot of a fleeting moment in someone else's life with no beginning and no end. It could become an eternity, but we just can not stop and really believe it. Nevertheless, it becomes eternal because there is nothing more endless and immediate than a silence of a moment, even the shortest one. Strange or familiar people in the focus of a camera lens. Camera hidden in the folds of a coat. Click of a shutter shooting from the hip on a subway escalator, on a street, in a cafe or... in an operating room of a field hospital.
Which is more sincere? The given or the stolen?
The vision! The vision of a photographer who documents reality in its most expected and unexpected manifestations.
That is why today I combine both of these principles and turn them into allies and partners in that very magical instant which I devoted my whole life to - my photography.
Limbo. Paulina Otylie Surys
Born in 1979 in Leszno, Paulina Otylie Surys is a Polish fashion photographer based in London, UK. Influenced by her study at the Academy of Fine Arts in Poland, she started to experiment with the photographic medium working on Polaroids, manipulating and hand-colouring them. She then completed her education in Photography at Middlesex University in London. Applying a mixture of toners, chemicals, inks and dry dyes, photography and painting merge in equal measure in her images. She employs a variety of vintage cameras, working with 35mm, medium and large format film, and uses a wide range of techniques such as tintype and the wet plate collodion processing. Surys' practice is inspired by an old and traditional form of colourizations that introduces limited colour into a black-and-white film. Inspired by mythological stories and Medieval sorcerers, alchemists and mystics, Surys’ work centres on creating surreal and unique situations that combine the world of reality with the domain of imagination, illusion and hallucination. Her work has appeared in numerous magazines such as VISION China, FIASCO, IDOL, DROME, Volt, Talk Be., VOGUE.com online, and recently, The British Journal of Photography (portfolio). Limbo is her first monographic album.
Linda McCartney: The Polaroid Diaries Eshun Ekow, Hynde Chrissie Following her best-selling TASCHEN monograph Life in Photographs, discover a more intimate and highly personal side of Linda McCartney's photographic work in The Polaroid Diaries.
The collection focuses on McCartney's distinctive way of seeing the world and her family, through charming and quirky portraits of Paul McCartney and the couple's four children. We see them pulling faces and in matching pajamas. We see James pouring water on himself, and Mary and Stella playing dress-up. There's dancing, eating, horse riding, and countless moments of everyday life on their farm in Southern England.
As Paul says in the introduction: "She would just see things. Many of her photos, it's just that one click. You've got to recognise when a great photo is happening in front of you. And then you've got to snap it at exactly the right moment… And she did that so many times that it always impressed me." The Polaroid Diaries curates more than 200 of these "right" moments from the early 1970s until the mid-1990s, along with a foreword by Chrissie Hynde and an essay by art critic Ekow Eshun.
The book also features luminous landscapes across Scotland and Arizona, as well as the odd celebrity, as the likes of Steve McQueen and Adam Ant wander into the frame. Other pictures attest to her love of animals, with compassionate images of cats, lambs, horses, and hens. It's a pre-Instagram glimpse into the life of an extraordinary family, a celebration of Linda's legacy as a fiercely committed artist and of the instant magic of Polaroid film.
London. Portrait of a City Golden Reuel Samuel Johnson famously said that: "When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life." London's remarkable history, architecture, landmarks, streets, style, cool, swagger, and stalwart residents are pictured in hundreds of compelling photographs sourced from a wide array of archives around the world. London is a vast sprawling metropolis, constantly evolving and growing, yet throughout its complex past and shifting present, the humor, unique character, and bulldog spirit of the people have stayed constant. This book salutes all those Londoners, their city, and its history. In addition to the wealth of images included in this book, many previously unpublished, London's history is told through hundreds of quotations, lively essays, and references from key movies, books, and records.
From Victorian London to the Swinging 60s; from the Battle of Britain to Punk; from the Festival of Britain to the 2012 Olympics; from the foggy cobbled streets to the architectural masterpieces of the millennium; from rough pubs to private drinking clubs; from Royal Weddings to raves, from the charm of the East End to the wonders of the Westminster; from Chelsea girls to Hoxton hipsters; from the power to glory: in page after page of stunning photographs, reproduced big and bold like the city itself, London at last gets the photographic tribute it deserves.
Magnum Streetwise. The Ultimate Collection of Street Photography
Ambitious in scope, democratic in nature, Magnum Streetwise is an unmissable tour through the photographs and practices that have helped define what street photography is and can be. Magnum photographers such as Henri Cartier-Bresson pioneered 'modern' concepts of street photography before the term was even coined. But their influence is far from historic. A rich seam of street photography runs through the heart of Magnum to this day, both in the work of recognized masters of street photography - such as Erwitt, Parr, Gilden and Kalvar - and of those who might not even consider themselves street photographers; a continued influence that has not gone unnoticed among the current generation of budding street photographers and fans.
Magnum Streetwise is a true visual feast, interleaving insightful texts and anecdotes within an intuitive blend of photographer- and theme-based portfolios, exploring not only the work of outstanding photographers, but how common subject matter (places of leisure, marketplaces, travel) and locations (Paris, New York, Tokyo) have been addressed, conceptually and practically, across the agency and through the ages. Magnum Streetwise is an essential addition to the bibliography of street photography, showcasing hidden gems alongside many of the genre's most famous images.
Max Penson: Photographer of the Uzbek Avant-Garde 1920s-1940s Galeyev Ildar, Penson Miron From 1924 the Russian photojournalist Max Penson (1893 - 1959) travelled through his adoptive homeland of Uzbekistan as a reporter. His photographs offer insight into a time when the country was loosening its centuries-old traditions and was confronted with a new political and social structure. These photographs, discovered three years ago in an attic and shown for the first time in this publication, come from the photographer's so far unseen legacy. They portray a country that in the early 20th century was a largely unknown part of mysterious and magical Central Asia. The awakening from this fairytale began just at the time when Max Penson was on the road with his camera, transmitting the upheaval of this ancient culture in fascinating photo reportages. Like no other photographer of his generation Max Penson documented the radical changes of a country that was only just being liberated from medieval social structures. Max Penson, a contemporary of the artist Alexander Rodtschenko and a friend of the film director Sergej Eisenstein, left behind a unique documentation of these changes. Max Penson was a photographer between tradition and revolution. This publication presents, by means of recently rediscovered works, the extraordinary documentary achievement of the Russian photojournalist, who portrayed in gripping photo reportages Uzbekistan's transformation from a medieval social structure to a Soviet Socialist Republic.
