Gift ideas this Christmas...
The Contact Sheet, by Steve Crist £24
To coincide with the exhibition in Gallery 2, Contacts from the Archive, we're now stocking, The Contact Sheet. This book offers an insightful look at some of the most iconic images of our times, revealing rarely seen contact sheets from the original photo shoots. Featuring work from Robert Doisneau, Elliott Erwitt, Nan Goldin, Nadav Kander, Andre Kertesz, Dorothea Lange, Ed Ruscha and William Wegman - to name but a few! This is a must-read for any lover of the photographic image.
Postcards, by Martin Parr £25
From the king of kitsch, this book features 650 cards selected by Parr from his personal collection of over 20,000 cards. Covering murders, lightning strikes, suffragettes, world war heroes, flappers, miners and airports runways, this is a highly entertaining journey into themes of Martin Parr's work as well as a serious study of postcard history through the 20th century.
Promotional, by David Sherry £2
This collection of David Sherry's delightfully irreverent illustrations, was published to accompany a solo show in Catalyst Arts in 2006. Known more for his performance work than his illustrations, this is a rare little volume, sure to become a collector's item in the future.
Mr Mkhize's Portrait and other stories from the new South Africa, by Broomberg & Chanarin
Ten years after the end of apartheid, Broomberg & Chanarin embarked on a journey through their homeland of South Africa, examining the way people live, work, love, and how they die. Threaded through these personal tales, we gain an understanding of the wider issues facing South Africa today.
