    ’93 Til – A photographic journey through skateboarding in the 1990s. – Pete Thompson

    To be a skateboarder today is a much different experience than it was for much of the 1990s. The photographs, quotes, and anecdotal text in ’93 til captures a time in skateboarding when making a livable income as a professional skater was a rare luxury and public understanding of skateboarding was at an all-time low. It was a time when skateboarding was searching for an identity, a time before Instagram and big corporate influences. Street skating was coming of age, testing its limitations and aligning itself with a new and innovative style of hip-hop culture that was emerging. Looking back, many skaters today feel as though the ’90s were the golden years of skateboarding. ’93 til is a captivating portal into a decade and a culture that is remembered with warmth and nostalgia. Much of the photography that Pete has unearthed for ’93 til was buried in boxes for close to two decades and has never been seen or published before. The 230-page book also contains several timeless images from his years shooting for SLAP and Transworld Skateboarding Magazine that will be familiar to the initiated. In addition to his stunning action shots are plenty of portraits and unguarded, candid moments that span from the late ’80s up through 2004. The book reveals a raw, unapologetic perspective of a world that no longer exists. Also included in the book alongside Pete’s imagery are quotes and anecdotes from legends like Tony Hawk, Arto Saari, Jamie Thomas, Guy Mariano, Nyjah Huston, Geoff Rowley, Stevie Williams and others.

    1960s: Photographed by David Hurn

    Magnum photographer Davis Hurn is one of Britains's more important reportage photographers. His documentary photographs are distinguished by their quiet observation and remarkable insight. Hurn's rendering of the 1960s encompasses both Hollywood screen idols and East End sun-seekers; headline news, alongside rituals unchanged for centuries.

This magnificent hardback volume is curated with insight and appreciation for a true master of his art. It offers an incredibly well-rounded vision of the 1960s that is not to be missed.

    American Reflections: Tom Arndt

    For this beautiful hard-cover monograph, Tom Arndt, one of the masters of documentary photography, opened his archives. Half a century of American history is told in a wandering road-movie through over 100 images. Under a sociological and empathetic gaze, Arndt captures fragments of the lives of women and men from the middle class, the agricultural world, the dreary suburbs and the hectic streets of great metropolises such as New York, Chicago, Los Angeles or Minneapolis. The illuminated signs, the reflections in the windows (themes that run through all of the photographer's work) and the silhouettes taken from life are all details that structure the photographic image. Lights and architectural lines compose powerful images, icons of a timeless America. Two essays by Sarah Hermanson Meister, former director of photography at MoMA NY and current director of the Aperture Foundation in New York, and Yasufumi Nakamori, senior curator at the Tate Modern in London, contextualise Arndt's work in the history of American photography. - Published February 2023

    Back In The Day – 70’s Skateboarding – Mini Edition Book

    Now in a more compact format, Back in the Day is a timeless and nostalgic collection of photographs documenting the skateboarding scene in the 1970s. William Sharp began taking surfing photographs in southern California in the early seventies and was quickly drawn into the nascent skateboard scene, shooting friends emulating surfing moves on pavement. By 1975 he was brought in as a staff photographer for the magazine Skateboard World. During the next five years he documented the meteoric rise of the movement, capturing thousands of photographs along the way. Back in the Day features hundreds of Sharp's astounding photos from this era. The work is priceless, not only for its documentary value, but for the beautiful and poetic images captured and later developed by Sharp himself (many in black and white). Pipes in Arizona, aqueducts in California, pools all over the place, the locales and images must be seen to be believed. Ozzie Ausband signed on as an editor of the project, collecting present day quotes and assisting with the paring down of Sharp's massive photo archive. Sharp's epic photos are populated by the vanguard of the scene such as Tony Alva, Jay Adams, Jerry Valdez, Steve Caballero, and Jay Smith, among many others.

    California Surfing and Climbing in the Fifties Book

    This title features images of legendary surfers such as Joe Quigg, Tom Zahn and Dale Velzy in locations such as Rincon, Malibu, South Bay and San Onofre; and famous climbers such as Warren Harding, Royal Robbins and Wayne Merry, photographed mostly in the Yosemite Valley by the likes of Bob Swift, Alan Steck, Jerry Gallwas and Frank Hoover. Soaked in surf, sun and adrenaline, these photographs depict the birth of an era and an exhilarating moment in Californian history. The story told by the photographs in California Surfing and Climbing in the Fifties takes place against the larger backdrop of postwar America: Truman and Eisenhower, the Korean War, the Cold War and the Red Scare. Young people were embracing new symbols of non-conformity: Elvis Presley, Jack Kerouac, Marlon Brando and James Dean. All along the California coast, surfing became popular as heavy balsawood boards were replaced with lightweight ones crafted from polyurethane foam, fiberglass and resin. Meanwhile, climbers descended on Tahquitz Rock in the south and Yosemite Valley to the north to test handcrafted equipment that would set new standards for safety, technique and performance.

    Henri Cartier-Bresson: The Decisive Moment Photography

    The Verve: Chris Floyd

    It has been 20 years since the colossal global success of The Verve’s era-defining Urban Hymns, and it remains one of the biggest-selling British albums of all time. Photographer Chris Floyd was embedded with the band during their meteoric rise from late 1996 to 1997. He documented the recording, touring and promoting of the album in Britain, Ireland and the US―the only photographer to have such access. This is the first time his photographs from that period have been published, with most completely unseen. The book is also a celebration of what it meant to be young in the last moments of societal unself-awareness, before the explosion of the internet and social media, and it includes a section dedicated to people’s memories of 1997. Chris reflects: “for a while it felt like being at the center of the universe.… We were in a brief golden era, when it looked like the world was unshackling itself and beginning to develop a more advanced and progressive attitude. We seemed to be in a decade that had taken a holiday from history. I am grateful and thankful that I got to live out my twenties in such a fertile, peaceful and creative period.” Michael Holden writes in his introduction: “Those years, it turns out, were the twilight of analogue consciousness and certain seeming certainties about the world at large. Whatever we are now, we were not then. This isn’t just the everyday past we’re looking at, but another planet.”

    Tina Barney : The Beginning Book

    Over the course of her 40-year career, Tina Barney has observed the generational repetition of familial traditions and rituals in domestic settings. In the summer of 2020 Barney began to sort through her archive, which contained thousands of 35mm negatives taken between 1976 and 1980. This book encompasses Barney’s nostalgic exploration of her earliest work in the medium, and further reflects a self-examination of this formative period through a critical lens. Finding these long-forgotten images engendered a rediscovery of some of her most intimate memories as a young artist: 'the photographs in this book seem like X-rays of my mind and thoughts through the summers I spent with family and friends on the East Coast and in Sun Valley, Idaho. The photographs of Tina Barney (born 1945) are in numerous public collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Whitney Museum of American Art; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; and the Nicola Erni Collection, Zug, Switzerland. Barney's work has been the subject of major recent exhibitions at the New Orleans Museum of Art; Frist Center, Nashville; and the Barbican, London.
