See the big picture of how suburban developments are changing the country's landscape, with aerial photos and an architect's commentary

by sbrothier
Even before Google allowed anybody with an Internet connection to see a satellite view of anyplace on the globe, I loved looking at books with aerial photography. A few favorites that focus on natural and human-made landscapes of the United States are Alex S. MacLean's Designs on the Land: Exploring American from the Air, Dolores Hayden's and photographer Jim Wark's A Field Guide to Sprawl and Alan Berger's Drosscape: Wasting Land in Urban America.

Coney Island Book | Baptiste Lignel - Johnny Miller

by sbrothier
Parc d'attraction mythique à la marge de New York, qui a inspiré tous les photographes. Ici un nouveau regard, en quatre mains. L'approche de chacun des deux photographes, et chaque corpus d’image renforce l’autre, et élargit son sens. L'ensemble permet, en montrant très peu, de faire deviner et comprendre beaucoup. On ne voit pas Coney Island. On voit ce qui le constitue ?

Magnum : Pandora's Box

by sbrothier
Mistress Raven directed a staff of 14 at Pandora's Box, a 4000-square-foot, high-class Manhattan S & M club that bills itself as the "Disneyland of Domination." Interspersed with pages made of latex, rubber, colored gels, and other erotic materials, Magnum photographer Susan Meiselas's documentary photographs of the club's highly formalised rules and rituals, its role-playing "vacations from reality," reveal both the customers who frequent the club and the women who command them. To buy this book go to MAGNUM STORE MAGNUMSTORE

Japan by Hiroji Kubota

by sbrothier
Modern Japan, the second largest economy in the world, is a land of contradictions. Home to some of the most sophisticated technology and manufacturing, it also has communities whose daily life has changed little in the last 500 years. It is a place of great beauty, both in the landscapes and its celebrations, festivals, and traditional arts. Hiroji Kubota spent four years traveling the length and breadth of his country's many islands, capturing the magnificent diversity of the people and places along the way. From rice paddies to pachinko parlors, ancient temples to the Honda assembly plants, Kubota's lens has captured both the ordinary and the extraordinary of a dually antiquated and modern nation.

Space Alphabet

by sbrothier
In honor of Sputnik 1, 50 years later (on Oct. 4th), I present to you all a nice little gem of a book I got off of ebay about a year ago: Space Alphabet (1964) by Irene Zacks. Pictures by Peter P. Plasencia. It's the entire book. I normally don't do this, but it's just too good not to share it all.
