The Merry Cemetery of Sapanta
Peter Kayafas
R.A.M Publications & Distributions, Inc.
Price: $45.00
Member Price: $40.50
Limited Stock: 2

This entrancing full-color book (the first by American photographer Peter Kayafas) documents the astounding folk art of Ion Stan Patras (1908-1977), a Romanian woodcarver whose life's work was the storytelling grave markers of his northern Romanian village, Sapanta. Kayafas fell under the spell of these vividly colored, painted masterpieces in 2003, and returned to Romania in 2004 determined to capture both the artwork and poetic epitaphs on the grave markers. Whether someone died young or old, quietly in his bed or far from home, Patras' markers remain unique memorials, and Kayafas' photos do them justice. Includes meticulously translated epitaphs by Adrian Sahlean.

Member Price: $81.00

While the history of photography is a well-established canon, much less critical attention has been directed at the phenomenon of the photobook, which for many photographers is perhaps the most significant vehicle for the display of their work and the communication of their vision to a mass audience. In the first of two volumes, both co-edited by Martin Parr and Gerry Badger, The Photobook provides a comprehensive overview of the development of the photobook, from its inception at the dawn of photography in the early nineteenth century through to the radical Japanese photobooks of the 1960s and 70s, by way of the modernist and propaganda books of the 1930s and 40s.

The Radical Camera : New York's Photo League, 1936-1951
Mason Klein
Yale University Press
Price: $50.00
Member Price: $45.00
Limited Stock: 3

Artists in the Photo League, active from 1936 to 1951, were known for capturing sharply revealing, compelling moments from everyday life. Their focus centered on New York City and its vibrant streets-a newsboy at work, a brass band on a bustling corner, a crowded beach at Coney Island. Though beautiful, the images harbor strong social commentary on issues of class, child labor, and opportunity.
