Thunersee
The Swiss lake Thunersee is regarded as the Riviera of the Bernese Oberland. English and American tourists discovered the idyllic region and the charm of the mountain Niesen pyramid early on. Famous artists such as Ferdinand Hodler or Paul Klee created unforgettable paintings of Thunersee, which are an integral part of art history. The images by the photographer Christian Helmle from Thun show all this charm: the majestic mountains, the sparkling water, the moving clouds. However, the images also show the unknown - gorges and chasms that are reflected in ancient deluge myths. The photographer has known the region since his youth. He has captured all the facets of Thunersee on many forays, almost like a stalking chamois hunter. The book is therefore a veritable photographic topography, which makes the Bern Riviera intriguing. The rich photographic volume invites readers to make their own discoveries - either visual or on a journey to Switzerland. Text in English and German.

Listening In: Artifacts and Echoes of Maryland's Mother Country
St. Mary's County is where colonial Maryland began, with the establishment of St. Mary's City on the site of an ancient Yaocomico village as Maryland's first capital in 1634. Southern Maryland has been home to human occupation for at least 12,000 years, and since 1634 the area has seen myriad changes through the rise and fall of tobacco agriculture and its associated enslaved labor to its current status as a bedroom community to Washington, DC, and as home to the Patuxent Naval Air Station. Although historically rural, the area is slowly giving rise to suburban development, and so ties to the past become increasingly important. In Listening In, Merideth Taylor provides a captivating, even pioneering approach to capturing the land and life of Maryland's mother county. She integrates her own engaging photographs of buildings of all kinds, many of them in disrepair, with imaginative text called ghost stories that relate to the photographs in one way or another. These stories are based on living oral histories that Taylor has heard over the many years she has lived in the area. And so we gain a true sense of what life in St. Mary's County was-and the place it is becoming.

Still: The East End Photographs
Still. The East End Photographs is a collection of images about the landscape of Long Island, New York. Reflective and transcendent, these images evoke the quality of our natural world defined by light and the contours of nature. Cheng has photographed the environment using a shift of the focus plane within the camera to detail in a non-distinct yet decidedly emotional way, to evoke a poetic interpretation of the landscape that is constantly deriving its beauty and power from the colour palate and a sense of movement that defines the landscape of Long Island and which has inspired so many artists. In changing the focal plane he was able to redefine what he was seeing, in a sense, to un/define the reality and to present images, in a way that is open. That the clarity and truth is the viewers vision, and that he the image maker, is the portal into that vision. Text by Elisabeth Biondi, Edwina von Gal, Jack Larsen, E.E. Cummings, and Terrie Sulta.

Viviane Sassen: Hot Mirror
This mid-career retrospective volume focuses on Viviane Sassen's fine art photography, revealing a surrealist undercurrent in her work. Sassen recognizes Surrealism as one of her earliest artistic influences, seen in the uncanny shadows, fragmented bodies, and otherworldly landscapes she captures in her work. In addition to images from the acclaimed series Umbra, this volume draws from the series Flamboya, in which she returned to Kenya, Parasomnia, a dreamlike exploration of sleep, the Roxane series, a mutual portrait created with her muse, Roxane Danset, Of Lotus and Mud, a study of procreation and fecundity, and Pikin Slee, a journey to a remote village in Suriname. This book features a contextualizing essay and an insightful interview with the artist. Throughout, Sassen emerges as a poetic photographer obsessed with light and shadow and a brilliant technician, who is a master of both vibrant color and muted hues. Selected by Sassen herself from across the last ten years, the images draw on the surrealist strategies of collage and unexpected juxtapositions to give a survey of her practice.

Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott
Mert Alas, born in Turkey, and Marcus Piggott, born in Wales, met in 1994, at a party on a pier in Hastings, England. Piggott asked Alas for a light, the pair got talking, and rapidly discovered they had plenty in common, not least a love of fashion. Three years later, the duo now known as Mert and Marcus had moved into a derelict loft in East London, converted it into a studio, and had their first collaborative photographic work published in Dazed & Confused.These days, Mert and Marcus shape the global image of such renowned brands as Giorgio Armani, Roberto Cavalli, Fendi, Miu Miu, Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent, Givenchy, and Lancome, and public figures including Lady Gaga, Madonna, Jennifer Lopez, Linda Evangelista, Gisele Bundchen, Bjoerk, Angelina Jolie, and Rihanna. Their photographs encompass a wide range of styles and influences but are renowned particularly for their use of digitized augmentation of images, and a fascination for strong, sexually charged, confident female subjects: powerful women, women with a meaning, a you-don't-have-to-talk-or-move-too-much-to-tell-who-you-are kind of woman. Bringing our best-selling Collector's Edition to an affordable, compact format, this collection explores the unique vision of a creative partnership that has defined and redefined standards for glamour, fashion, and luxury. Approximately 300 images from the megawatt Mert and Marcus portfolio are accompanied by an introduction by Charlotte Cotton.First published as a TASCHEN Collector's Edition, now available as an affordable, compact edition

When 22-year-old American photographer Blake Wood moved to London in 2007, a mutual friend introduced him to Amy Winehouse. After winning five Grammy Awards for her 2006 album Back to Black, the celebrated singer with the sultry and emotionally raw voice was at the height of her celebrity, but struggling with her wayward partner and the scrutiny of constant media attention. Bonding personally and creatively, Wood and Winehouse developed a close friendship and would become inseparable for the next two years.From images of Winehouse performing in Paris to playing drums at her home studio in Camden Town, London, from lovingly composed portraits of her at ease on St. Lucia to carefree vamping for the camera, this is an intimate visual diary of the soul diva at a time when she was one of the most celebrated voices on earth.The story of this profound emotional collaboration is told through the lens of her confidant, in 85 color and black-and-white photographs, most of them never published before, that reveal their mutual love, trust, and respect. With text by acclaimed pop culture critic Nancy Jo Sales, discover a rare and lighter side of this much-missed icon, totally at ease in front of her friend's camera; a typical young London girl enjoying life to the fullest.

Massimo Listri. The World's Most Beautiful Libraries
From the mighty halls of ancient Alexandria to a camel bookmobile on the Kenyan-Somali border, human beings have had a long, enraptured relationship with libraries. Like no other concept and like no other space, the collection of knowledge, learning, and imagination offers a sense of infinite possibility. It's the unrivaled realm of discovery, where every faded manuscript or mighty clothbound tome might reveal a provocative new idea, a far-flung fantasy, an ancient belief, a religious conviction, or a whole new way of being in the world.In this new photographic journey, Massimo Listri travels to some of the oldest and finest libraries to reveal their architectural, historical, and imaginative wonder. Through great wooden doors, up spiraling staircases, and along exquisite, shelf-lined corridors, he leads us through outstanding private, public, educational, and monastic libraries, dating as far back as 766. Between them, these medieval, classical, baroque, rococo, and 19th-century institutions hold some of the most precious records of human thought and deed, inscribed and printed in manuscripts, volumes, papyrus scrolls, and incunabula. In each, Listri's poised images capture the library's unique atmosphere, as much as their most prized holdings and design details.Featured libraries include the papal collections of the Vatican Apostolic Library, Trinity College Library, home to the Book of Kells and Book of Durrow, and the priceless holdings of the Laurentian Library in Florence, the private library of the powerful House of Medici, designed by Michelangelo. With meticulous descriptions accompanying each featured library, we learn not only of the libraries' astonishing holdings-from which highlights are illustrated-but also of their often lively, turbulent, or controversial pasts. Like Altenburg Abbey in Austria, an outpost of imperial Catholicism repeatedly destroyed during the European wars of religion, or the Franciscan monastery in Lima, Peru, with its horde of archival Inquisition documents.At once a bibliophile beauty pageant, an ode to knowledge, and an evocation of the particular magic of print, Massimo Listri Libraries. Memories of the World is above all a cultural-historical pilgrimage to the heart of our halls of learning, to the stories they tell, as much as those they gather in printed matter along polished shelves.

Frozen Latitudes: A Photographic Tribute to the Beauty of the High Arctic
The cryosphere is the frozen water part of the Earth`s system. Areas of snow and ice which are subject to temperatures below 32F for most of the year, such as the Arctic, the Antarctic and the high mountain ranges. These areas are under constant scientific examination, as the subject of global warming is of such significance today. Christoph Ruhsam grew up in the high mountain cryosphere of Austria and has studied, explored and travelled extensively in the Arctic. Also an expert landscape photographer, he sets out in this book to go beyond the scientific aspects of the frozen world, and through his essays and pictures capture the inherent spirit of these threatened lonely lands and oceans. He uses three of his expeditions as the basis for the book, two to Greenland, and one to the Frans Josef archipelago. His pictures reveal stunning vistas of unclimbed mountains and untrodden ice-sheets, the fauna and the scant flora, and beautifully record what could be lost to us all. The pictures are accompanied by descriptive essays that accompany the pictures and together attempt to convey the aesthetics of the Arctic landscape and the spiritual dimension in which Rusham believes the experience of loneliness and self-reliance needed to travel or work in these `frozen deserts` finds room in the depths of the travellers soul. The book is a superb ` cri de couer` to mankind to come to terms with its place in the world.

Stanley Kubrick Photographs. Through a Different Lens
Before becoming the critically acclaimed filmmaker responsible for such iconic films as Dr. Strangelove and The Shining, Stanley Kubrick spent five years as a photographer for Look magazine. The Bronx native joined the staff in 1945, when he was only 17 years old, and shot humanist slice-of-life features that celebrate and expose New York City and its inhabitants.Through a Different Lens reveals the keen and evocative vision of a burgeoning creative genius in a range of feature stories and images, from everyday folk at the laundromat to a day in the life of a debutant, from a trip to the circus to Columbia University. Featuring around 300 images, many previously unseen, as well as rare Look magazine tear sheets, this release coincides with a major show at the Museum of the City of New York and includes an introduction by noted photography critic Luc Sante.These still photographs attest to Kubrick's innate talent for compelling storytelling, and serve as clear indicators of how this genius would soon transition to making some of the greatest movies of all time.

Whether it's flinging frozen rats or parading in holly evergreens, racing snails or carrying wives, human beings have long displayed their creativity in wild, odd, and sometimes just wonderful rituals and competitions. To show what lengths we'll go to uphold our eccentric customs, British American graphic designer Nigel Holmes channels his belief in the power of hilarity to bring together a bewilderingly funny tour around the globe in search of incredible events, all dryly explained with brilliant infographics.You'll encounter the startling facts behind peat-bog snorkelling in Wales (wet suits recommended), hotdog-swallowing in the USA (tip: avoid breakfast), or who can make a baby cry quickest in Japan. Through this gallimaufry of gamesmanship and passion, an endearingly warm and affectionate portrait of human endeavor and good humor emerges as Holmes proves, page after page, that when it comes to feats of bravery, endurance, or sheer nonsense, the world is united as one in the fine, and often hilarious, way of celebrating culture.

Berenice Abbott is to American photography what Georgia O'Keeffe is to painting or Willa Cather to letters. Abbott's sixty-year career established her not only as a master of American photography but also as a teacher, writer, archivist and inventor. A teenage rebel from Ohio, Abbott escaped to Paris-photographing, in Sylvia Beach's words, everyone who was anyone -before returning to New York as the Roaring Twenties ended. Abbott's best known work, Changing New York , documented the city's 1930s metamorphosis. She then turned to science as a subject, culminating in work important to the 1950s space race . This biography secures Abbott's place in the histories of photography and modern art while framing her accomplishments as a female artist and entrepreneur.

Sally Mann: A Thousand Crossings
For more than 40 years, Sally Mann (b. 1951) has made experimental, elegiac, and hauntingly beautiful photographs that explore the overarching themes of existence: memory, desire, death, the bonds of family, and nature's magisterial indifference to human endeavor. What unites this broad body of work-portraits, still lifes, landscapes, and other studies-is that it is all bred of a place, the American South. Mann, who is a native of Lexington, Virginia, uses her deep love of her homeland and her knowledge of its historically fraught heritage to ask powerful, provocative questions-about history, identity, race, and religion-that reverberate across geographic and national boundaries. Organized into five sections-Family, The Land, Last Measure, Abide with Me, and What Remains-and including many works not previously exhibited or published, Sally Mann: A Thousand Crossings is a sweeping overview of Mann's artistic achievements.

Sensual and softly surreal, the nude photography of Ralph Gibson frames the female form both organically and graphically, referencing art history while also innovating in the arena of erotic imagery, at once summoning visceral sensation and calling out for tactile attention. Thumb through this exquisite tribute to the contours and curves of womanhood and experience the intimacy of the photographic lens.Reviving TASCHEN's sold-out Collector's Edition, this tribute gathers the best of Gibson's exquisite nudes alongside some of his most recent works in an accessible, revised format, complete with a fresh in-depth interview by Eric Fischl. Strikingly graphic, meticulously composed, and loaded with subtle provocations, the master photographer's mysterious, dreamlike images pay homage to greats such as Man Ray and Edward Weston, while continually pursuing new frontiers. A photographer once said that beauty in women is endless. Perhaps it was I who said it. [...] I love photographing women and could say that the form of the female body is absolute and perfect. -Ralph Gibson

An original signed copy of the book sold at auction in 2008 commanded the highest price ever paid for an illustrated children's book.This finely crafted volume presents 10 of the original fairytales, and restores the stunning detail and artistry of Nielsen's images to their original splendor. Featuring 41 illustrations, including many enlarged details from Nielsen's rare original watercolors. The book comes with three accompanying essays, illustrated with dozens of rare and previously unseen artworks by Nielsen, that explore the history of Norwegian folktales, Nielsen's life and work, and how this masterpiece came to be.

Joseph Szabo: Lifeguard
This series of photographs represents Joseph Szabo interest, encounter and friendship with lifeguards from 1990-2015. Actually his first connection with them started in the late 1960s when he first discovered Jones Beach. So this work is an exploration using photography as an art form and documentary tool. The purpose is to express more fully the lives of people that Szabo has come to know and respect. These photographs are in the widest sense portraits that illustrate aspects of preparation, teamwork, recharging, camaraderie, duty and responsibility.

Dennis Hopper. Photographs 1961-1967
During the 1960s, Dennis Hopper carried a camera everywhere-on film sets and locations, at parties, in diners, bars and galleries, driving on freeways and walking on political marches. He photographed movie idols, pop stars, writers, artists, girlfriends, and complete strangers. Along the way he captured some of the most intriguing moments of his generation with a keen and intuitive eye. A reluctant icon at the epicenter of that decade's cultural upheaval, Hopper documented the likes of Tina Turner in the studio, Andy Warhol at his first West Coast show, Paul Newman on set, and Martin Luther King during the Civil Rights March from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama.From a selection of photographs compiled by Hopper and gallerist Tony Shafrazi, this extensive volume, finally back in print in a new edition, distills the essence of Hopper's prodigious photographic career. Also included are introductory essays by Shafrazi and legendary West Coast art pioneer Walter Hopps, as well as an extensive biography and new afterword by journalist Jessica Hundley. With excerpts from Victor Bockris's interviews of Hopper's famous subjects, friends, and family, this volume revives an unprecedented exploration of the life and mind of one of America's most fascinating personalities.

Julius Shulman. Modernism Rediscovered
The buildings burned in our memories, which to us represent the spirit of '50s and '60s architectural design, were those whose pictures were widely published in magazines and books; but what about those that got lost in the process, hardly or never appearing in publication?The exchange of visual information is crucial to the development, evolution, and promotion of architectural movements. If a building is not widely seen, its photograph rarely or never published, it simply does not enter into architectural discourse. Many buildings photographed by Julius Shulman suffered this fate, their images falling into oblivion. With this book, TASCHEN brings them to light, paying homage to California Modernism in all its forms.The abandoned files of Julius Shulman show us another side of Modernism that has stayed quiet for so many years. Bringing together nearly 200 forgotten masterpieces, Modernism Rediscovered pays tribute to these lesser known yet outstanding contributions to the modern architectural movement. It's like sneaking into a private history, into homes that have rarely been seen and hardly appreciated as of yet.
