Richard Serra by Alfred Pacquement

Info

Hardcover
9.5 x 12 inches
296 pages

Words

I feel like I could share some exciting new Steidl publication almost every week. The German publisher has been having a banner 2015 so far, with books from Cartier-Bresson, Eggleston, Parks, and Teller. While all of these are photo books, this volume is something for fans of the brutal and humungous works (in both size and scope) of Richard Serra. "Instead of retracing Serra's career chronologically, as is usual in the artist's exhibition catalogues, this book comprises eight thematic chapters that do not aim to investigate all of his work. Rather, this organization facilitates a closer examination of the development of specific bodies of work and thereby a fresh understanding of Serra's overall oeuvre. Each chapter is built around the works shown at the QMA Gallery and Alriwaq Doha, as well as 7, installed in MIA Park in Doha in 2011, and East-West/West-East, installed in 2014 at a site chosen by the artist in the Brouq Nature Reserve near Zekreet."

The Decisive Moment by Henri Cartier-Bresson

Words

The Decisive Moment by Henri Cartier-Bresson has long been considered one of those rare, out-of-print photo books that carries a high price tag for original copies. That doesn’t have to be the case any longer. The German publisher, Steidl, has reissued a facsimile version of the 1952 book and hopefully its availability will help to continue eliciting Cartier-Bresson's hegemony and influence over photographers hoping to catch seemingly happenstance moments of beauty or quite possibly introduce his work to a whole new generation.

William Eggleston: From Black and White to Colour

—01. Untitled, ca. 1970.

Words

William Eggleston has one of the more idiosyncratic and oft-copied oeuvres in photography and this collection, released by Steidl in late 2014, does a great job of compiling his fantastically composed mundane subject matter. It also highlights his transition from black and white to colour – something which gave the latter a real push in terms of respectability as art. One of Eggleston’s contemporaries, artist Ed Ruscha, may have said it best when he stated, “…when you see a picture he’s taken, you’re stepping into some jagged kind of world that seems like Eggleston World.”

No Photographing by Timm Rautert

—01. Published by Steidl.

Words

I recently came across this book by Timm Rautert and was very inspired and impressed the mix of colour and black and white images inside.

"In 1974 the young Timm Rautert travelled to Pennsylvania to photograph those who normally don’t allow themselves to be photographed: the Amish, a group of Anabaptist Protestant communities. Four years later Rautert returned to America, this time to the Hutterites who live so stringently by the Ten Commandments and the bible’s restrictions on images that they have their identity cards issued without photographs. Both these two series were influential on Rautert’s later work and No Photographing brings them together for the first time."

01. II.
02. III.

Words

A modern classic, the original Master book was released by Steidl in 2005 and has since become a benchmark in small book and zine design. In the years following its release Stiedl have not only reprinted the original but released two more books by Teller in the series: volumes II and III. Affordable and exceptional, the second and third parts of this trilogy are currently available at Dashwood Books in New York, or direct from the publisher's website.
