Stan Douglas
Philip Monk
Dumont
Price: $550.00
Member Price: $495.00
Limited Stock: 1

Stan Douglas, born in Vancouver in 1960, is among a younger generation of artists that has come of age artistically around figures like Jeff Wall and Rodney Graham. His thorough photographic series and elaborate film and video installations, all technically meticulous, are the base for subtle societal criticisms and investigations of authorship and subjectivity. They are media machines, Automats of a sort, which involve the viewer in their mechanics; they reflect an era of transition from literally mechanical reproduction to electronic saturation. Douglas's widely appreciated work has appeared in the 1995 Whitney Biennial and three Venice Biennales; at Documenta 9, 10 and 11; at the Guggenheim Museums in New York and Bilbao; and at the Museums of Modern Art in San Francisco and New York. He has had solo exhibitions at the Dia Foundation for the Arts in New York, The Art Institute of Chicago and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, among others.

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.

Zoltan Jokay : Portraits
Adler, Schube & Jokay
Hatje Cantz Verlag
Price: $75.00
Member Price: $67.50
Limited Stock: 1

There is nothing cool or distant about Zoltán Jókay's portraits. Revolving as they do around themes of intimacy, closeness, and the sense of being touched, both literally and figuratively, his images sometimes seem anachronistic, but that is part of their unique appeal. Jókay's pictures are "self-images": forming a personal visual language, they are a tool through which the photographer can approach his own biography, through which he can understand it and protect himself against it.
