Description:
Tom Bianchi has long been acclaimed for his masterful and ground-breaking photos of the male nude. Now, with Among Women, Bianchi proves himself equal to the task of capturing women's relationships - between friends, between mother and daughter, between sisters, between lovers - in all their affectionate and generous love. In collaboration with the women in this book, Bianchi has thrown out the old cliches and roles into which women are usually cast and broken new ground in this exploration of the female nude. By inviting these women to be portrayed as they wished to be seen, Bianchi provided them a comfortable stage on which to be themselves and, as a result, was rewarded with wonderfully varied and compellingly rich portraits. Marked by an independent spirit and the subjects' confident strength in their physical presence, the work in Bianchi's Among Women is perhaps his strongest to date.

Description:
In commemoration of the one-hundredth anniversary of his birth, Ansel Adams at 100 presents an intriguing new look at this distinguished photographer's work. The legendary curator John Szarkowski, director emeritus of the Department of Photography at New York's Museum of Modern Art, has painstakingly selected what he considers Adams' finest work and has attempted to find the single best photographic print of each. Szarkowski writes that "Ansel Adams at 100 is the product of a thorough review of work that Adams, at various times in his career, considered important. It includes many photographs that will be unfamiliar to lovers of Adams' work, and a substantial number that will be new to Adams scholars.

Description:
When Diane Arbus died in 1971 at the age of 48, she was already a significant influence--even something of a legend--for serious photographers, although only a relatively small number of her most important pictures were widely known at the time. The publication of Diane Arbus: An Aperture Monograph in 1972--along with a posthumous retrospective at The Museum of Modern Art--offered the general public its first encounter with the breadth and power of her achievements. The response was unprecedented. The monograph, composed of 80 photographs, was edited and designed by the painter Marvin Israel, Diane Arbus' friend and colleague, and by her daughter Doon Arbus. Their goal in producing the book was to remain as faithful as possible to the standards by which Arbus judged her own work and to the ways in which she hoped it would be seen. Universally acknowledged as a photobook classic, Diane Arbus: An Aperture Monograph is a timeless masterpiece with editions in five languages, and remains the foundation of… Read More

Description:
In 1999, photographer Thomas Roma found himself within the walls of Philadelphia's Holmesburg Prison, one of the most notorious prisons in the United States, doing a special photographic project for Steve Buscemi's Animal Factory. During downtime Roma wandered through this nineteenth-century fortress, walking in and out of many of its seven hundred or so cells. After Holmesburg's inception in 1896—on the occasion of which one Philadelphia reporter warned, "Abandon all hope all ye who enter here"—it quickly became the prison for Philadelphia's worst criminals, eventually packing up to five prisoners into six by eight foot cells designed for single-occupancy. After leaving the site, Roma found his mind often inhabiting the space of the prison with its halls of flaking paint and graffiti-covered cells. Overwhelmed by the evidence of the lives spent inside those small rooms, Roma returned to photograph on his own, creating the images now collected for In Prison Air: The Cells of Holmesburg Prison.
