The flying carpet
Fabbri, Cesare, photographer
[London] : MACK, [2017]
The Flying Carpet is a collection of images taken by Cesare Fabbri in and around Emilia-Romagna and Sardegna, Italy, between 2005-15. The photographs affirm the simple magic of photography-as if it's thorough the image itself that we might discover something for the first time, something right before our eyes. "The camera," wrote Luigi Ghirri in the 1970s, "is a magical toy capable of bringing together the great and the small, illusion and reality, time and space." And indeed, in these photographs, we encounter a world of things re-animated as images, a silent world roused from its slumber? huts with painted, questioning eyes, an inquisitive mailbox peering over a fence, or an embroidered carpet lifting off in the breeze. 00Italian photographer Cesare Fabbri was born in Ravenna in 1971. He studied photography and urban planning at the IUAV in Venice. In 2007 he took part in the Stuttgart Biennale of Photography and Architecture and was shortlisted for the prize Atlante Italiano 007 organised by Museo MAXXI, Roma. With Silvia Loddo he founded in 2009 osservatorio fotografico, an experimental platform for research on photography. This is his first book.

Object image
Tulloch, Sarah, artist,
[Hillsborough, NC] : Daylight Community Arts Foundation, [2016]
Sarah Tulloch: ObjectImage roots itself in album collections of the artist and others that are linked to the social tradition and history of documenting family. Through collage, Tulloch maintains a thread between past and future with her ability to form new connections within the image composition. The work continues to evolve including the use of contemporary newspaper images. Tulloch's use of photomontage allows her to re-focus the media, re-compose the image and ultimately re-find and re-purpose the photographic subject.

Overspilling world : the photographs of Janet Sternburg
Sternburg, Janet, photographer,
Berlin : DISTANZ, [2016]
Can a still photograph embody living perception? Can it contain its abundance? Can photography, which is not a time-based medium, render ongoing flow? Can it do justice to this notion of an over-spilling world? To these questions, photographer Janet Sternburg (b. Boston, 1943; lives and works in Los Angeles and San Miguel de Allende, Mexico), a writer and philosopher as well as a photographer, says yes. Her work proves that photography can register the living perception that is our experience. Working without any optical or digital manipulation, and using the simplest of technical means-disposable and early iPhone cameras-she draws together the manifold aspects of the world on a single plane, portraying a vision of interpenetrating and layered time and space. 'Overspilling World' is Janet Sternburg's first monograph. With texts by Sternburg, art historian Pepe Karmel, photographer Catherine Opie, curator Alexandra von Stosch, and filmmaker-photographer Wim Wenders.

Technology and isolation
Lawson, Clive, author
[Cambridge, United Kingdom] ; University of Cambridge, [2017]
Technology questions -- Technology : from obscurity to keyword -- Ontology and isolation -- Science and technology -- The sociality of artefacts -- Technological artefacts -- Technology and the extension of human capabilities -- Technology and instrumentalisation -- Technology and autism -- Technology, recombination and speed -- Marx, Heidegger and technological neutrality.

By reconsidering the theme of isolation in the philosophy of technology, and by drawing upon recent developments in social ontology, Lawson provides an account of technology that will be of interest and value to those working in a variety of different fields. Technology and Isolation includes chapters on the philosophy, history, sociology and economics of technology and contributes to such diverse topics as the historical emergence of the term 'technology', the sociality of technology, the role of technology in social acceleration, the relationship between Marx and Heidegger, and the relationship between technology and those with autism. The central contribution of the book is to provide a new ontology of technology. In so doing, Lawson argues that much of the distinct character of technology can be explained or understood in terms of the dynamic that emerges from technology's peculiar constitutional mix of isolatable and non-isolatable components.

Montreal, city of water : an environmental history
Dagenais, Michèle, 1957- author
Vancouver, British Columbia : UBC Press, [2017]
"Built within an exceptional watershed, Montreal is intertwined with the waterways that ring its island and flow beneath it in underground networks. Montreal, City of Water focuses on water not only as a physical element - both shaping and shaped by urban development - but also as a sociocultural component of the life of the city. This unique study considers how water has produced and transformed urban space over two centuries. It traces the history of Montreal's urbanization, shining a light on current concerns about water pollution, rehabilitation, and public access to the riverfront - and on the power relations involved in addressing them."--

50 inventions that shaped the modern economy
Harford, Tim, 1973- author
New York : Riverhead Books, 2017
"In [this book], author and economist Tim Harford paints an epic yet intimate picture of economic change by telling the stories of the ideas, people, and tools that have had far-reaching and unexpected consequences for all of us. Drawing on his hugely popular BBC radio program and podcast ..., Harford expands on them with fascinating glimpses into the inventions that have transformed the ways, we work, play, and live. From the plow to artificial intelligence, from Gillette's disposable razor to IKEA's Billy bookcase, Harford recounts the memorable story of each invention and introduces us to the characters who developed them, profited from them, and were in some cases ruined by them."--Jacket.

Time's assignation
Letinsky, Laura, photographer
Santa Fe, NM : Radius Books, [2017]
"Chicago-based photographer Laura Letinsky (born 1962) used Polaroid Type 55 film as part of her working process until the film was discontinued in 2008, exploring focus, composition, exposure and light in black-and-white instant photographs as she worked up to the larger-scale color works for which she is best known. Like sketches, the photographs in this volume--small, slow and raw--reveal a process of asking. This way or that? More or less? Now or then? A Polaroid is a fugitive thing, beautiful in its decomposition, subject to change as much as the still life compositions of ripe fruits and nibbled foods that Letinsky arranges. Time's Assignation collects Polaroids taken by the photographer in her studio between 1997 and 2008, now stabilized, their high-key tones slipping into white veils and darker tones metallized in hues of taupe, gold and gunmetal gray. These photographs offer a record of Letinsky's working process, but are a compelling body of photographic work in their own right, exploring time's unrelenting progression in their subject matter and materiality."--Amazon.

Domon ken : the master of Japanese realism = 土門拳 : the master of Japanese realism / catalogue edited by Rossella Menegazzo, Takeshi Fujimori, with assistance from Yuki Seli
Milano : Skira editore, 2017
The breadth and diversity of this Renaissance man?s oeuvre reveals untiring attention to and interest in the culture, art, faces, society, and politics of this country. With over 70,000 pictures taken between the 1920s and 1980s, Domon Ken is considered the supreme master of Japanese photography as well as the main exponent of realism as the only approach possible. Over the years he honed is craft, shifting from propaganda photography during the war to photography as a life?s mission, in search of his own Japan: a fascinating and silent Japan of ancient temples, Buddhist sculptures, puppet theaters (where he took refuge during the war); the seductive and expressive faces of celebrities alongside the modest ones of street urchins; the poorest Japan of mining villages; and finally his most disturbing and modern work, portraying Hiroshima and its unhealed wounds. 0 0Rosella Menegazzo is a professor of East Asian Art History at the University of Milan. Takeshi Fujimori is the artistic director of Ken Domon Museum of Photography, Sakata, Japan. 00Exhibition: Museo dell'Ara Pacis, Rome, Italy (27.05-18.09.2016).

"There are many outstanding female photographers working today, yet the photographic industry continues to be a male-dominated world. Established in 2011, Firecracker (fire-cracker.org) is an online platform dedicated to supporting female photographers worldwide by showcasing their work in a series of monthly, online gallery features; by organizing events; and by awarding an annual grant to enable a female photographer to fund a project. Building on Firecracker's foundations, this book brings together the work of more than thirty of the most talented contemporary female photographers from around the world. Each profile explores the photographer's creative practice, illustrated by photographs that showcase a key project in her career, and a selection that offers a wider view of her work. The images encompass an eclectic variety of styles, techniques, and locations--from German Alma Haser's futuristic series of portraits that use origami to create 3D sculptures within the frame, to Egyptian Laura El-Tantawy's filmic and intensely personal series on political protest in Cairo. With more than 300 photographs, Firecrackers is a celebration of some of the most inquisitive, stylish, and daring photography being made today." -- Publisher's website

Kashef Chowdhury : Dhaka: memories or lost
Chowdhury, Kashef, photographer
Zurich : Scheidegger & Spiess, [2017]
Upon setting foot in Dhaka, it becomes clear that this is a city steeped in history. One of the oldest settlements in Bangladesh, it is today among the largest cities in the world, and rapid, often unplanned, urbanization has vastly outpaced sustainability, threatening the historic buildings and communities that make up the city?s cultural soul. But, despite bursting at the seams, Dhaka?s six centuries of history are still visible if we are to look carefully in the shadows of the tall buildings, in the spaces between the speeding cars.00Dhaka-based Kashef Chowdhury?s camera captures a record of the capital city?of the local character that may soon be lost due to urban development. In Chowdhury?s photographs, a woman hangs sheets of polythene to dry and resell, a blind man sings mystic love songs. Other photographs reflect Dhaka?s state of social and cultural flux, like an image of weary night-shift workers returning from work in a wholesale market in the late morning or of the barely visible side lights of a truck concealed to prevent theft. Chowdhury is one of South Asia?s most renowned architects, and 'Dhaka: Memories or Lost' constitutes his deeply personal tribute to the city.
