New Books, Now Available from Aperture
New publications from Aperture’s award winning book program are now available for purchase:
Trevor Paglen’s first photographic monograph compiles eight years of the photographer’s widely acclaimed work exploring the secret activities of the U.S. millitary and intelligence agencies with his camera. Paglen’s mysterious and compelling images play with conventions of documentary using an array of techniques and approaches to consider what can and cannot be seen.
Photographer Dave Anderson documents the evolution of a New Orleans block as it’s residents rebuild after the destruction of Hurricane Katrina in new monograph One Block. On the occasion of the 5th anniversary of Katrina, these images consider the great resilience, hope and struggle of a community.
ReGeneration is back! Following the success of 2005 anthology and exhibition ReGeneration which featured works by Pieter Hugo, Idris Khan, Angelina Strassheim and Nathalie Czech, ReGeneration 2 turns the spotlight once more on the up and coming generation of image makers. Showcasing over two hundred images of eighty emerging artists, reGeneration 2 proves that the art of photography is alive and well, and that practitioners of extraordinary talent are well on their way to making their mark.
Richard Misrach’s Destroy This Memory is an affecting reminder of the physical and psychological impact of Hurricane Katrina. Rather than simply surveying the damage, Misrach-who has photographed the region regularly since the 1970s, most notably for his ongoing Cancer Alley project-found himself drawn to the hurricane-inspired graffiti: messages scrawled in spray paint, crayons, chalk, or whatever materials happened to be on hand. Created between October and December 2005, this haunting series of images serves as a potent document of the raw experiences of those left to fend for themselves in the aftermath of Katrina.
