No photographer is more closely associated with a city than Brassaï (1899–1984) is with Paris. From the moment he moved there in 1924, he devoted his life and art to immortalizing his adopted city – capturing the street life by day, the cafés and the Seine by night. His most famous portraits and cityscapes collected in this fascinating book, form a unique vision of life in pre- and post-war Europe. A friend of Picasso and Henry Miller, Brassaï knew and photographed the leading figures of his day – Giacometti, Sartre, Dalí, Matisse and Mann among them.

The Photofile series brings together the best work of the world’s greatest photographers, in an affordable pocket format. Handsome and collectable, the books are produced to the highest standards. Each volume contains some sixty full-page reproductions printed in superb duotone, together with a critical introduction and a full bibliography. The series has been awarded the first annual prize for distinguished photographic books by the International Center of Photography, New York.

Araki Tokyo Lucky Hole Araki Nobuyoshi

It started in 1978 with an ordinary coffee shop near Kyoto. Word spread that the waitresses wore no panties under their miniskirts. Similar establishments popped up across the country. Men waited in line outside to pay three times the usual coffee price just to be served by a panty-free young woman. Within a few years, a new craze took hold: the no-panties ?massage? parlor. Increasingly bizarre services followed, from fondling clients through holes in coffins to commuter-train fetishists. One particularly popular destination was a Tokyo club called ?Lucky Hole? where clients stood on one side of a plywood partition, a hostess on the other. In between them was a hole big enough for a certain part of the male anatomy. Taking the Lucky Hole as his title, Nobuyoshi Araki captures Japan’s sex industry in full flower, documenting in more than 800 photos the pleasure-seekers and providers of Tokyo?s Shinjuku neighborhood before the February 1985 New Amusement Business Control and Improvement Act put a stop to many of the country’s sex locales. Through mirrored walls, bed sheets, the bondage and the orgies, this is the last word on an age of bacchanalia, infused with moments of humor, precise poetry, and questioning interjections.

Po siedmiu latach lingwistyczno-wizualnej podróży Andrzeja Tobisa przez Polskę, zbiór A-Z (Gabloty edukacyjne) ukazuje się w postaci polsko-niemiecko-angielskiej publikacji, zawierającej 100 fotografii ilustrujących hasła słownika Bildwörterbuch Deutsch und Polnisch, wydanego w 1954 roku w Niemieckiej Republice Demokratycznej. Tworząc swój projekt, Tobis przyjął następujące założenia: zdjęcia mogą być wykonane wyłącznie na terenie Polski; sfotografowane sytuacje i obiekty nie są aranżowane ani cyfrowo montowane – muszą być odnalezione; każde hasło w wersji niemieckiej i polskiej opatrzone jest numerem indeksu z oryginalnego słownika; zdjęcie oraz umieszczone pod nim na białym pasku hasło stanowią integralną całość.

Album to antologia twórczości dwóch wielkich fotografów, którzy dokumentowali pierwsze lata istnienia nowej huty – Henryka Makarewicza i Wiktora Pentala. Do dziś żaden z nich nie doczekał się szczerej prezentacji. Oglądając zdjęcia Makarewicza i Pentala zauważamy w nich współny ton: silnie zaznaczony, odautorski komentarz, często ironiczny wobec rzeczywistości – dlatego właśnie wiele z nich nigdzie się dotychczas nie ukazało.
