New York in photobooks gathers and studies a selection of images of the capital of the twentieth century, the most photogenic and most photographed city in history. In these images from the books selected (only a fraction of those in existence), the city of skyscrapers is captured from construction thereof in the 1930s to the destruction of the World Trade Center in 2001, alongside the urban life of the New Yorkers themselves, recorded in a model style of street photography. Many of the books are the work of European and Japanese photographers, who discovered multiple perspectives (human, cultural, social, economic) from which to view the city that shaped the twentieth century. New York in Photobooks is the catalogue of a travelling exhibition curated by Horacio Fernandez, who is also the editor of the book: a collaborative effort in which, in addition to the many images, there are texts by numerous photography scholars. The photographers represented include Berenice Abbott, Nobuyoshi Araki, Cecil Beaton, Mario Bucovich, Roy DeCarava, Bruce Davidson, Raymond De-pardon, Juan Fresan, Bruce Gilden, Gyorgy Lorinczy, Lewis Hine, Evelyn Hofer, Karol Kallay, Andre Kertesz, William Klein Helen Levitt, Danny Lyon, Daido Moriyama, Ugo Mulas, Robert Rauschenberg, Kees Scherer, Aaron Siskind, Weegee, Kojima Yasutaka, Ruiko Yoshida, among others. 350 photographs
Understanding Photobooks is a user-friendly guide to engaging with the photographic book— or, as it is widely known, the photobook. Despite its importance as a central medium in which many photographers showcase their work today, there is surprisingly little information on the mechanics of the photobook: what exactly it does and how it does it. Written for makers and artists, this book will help you develop a better understanding of the images, concept, sequence, design, and production of the photobook. With an awareness of the connections between these elements, you’ll be able to evaluate photobooks more clearly and easily, ultimately allowing for a deeper and more rewarding experience of the work.
The photograph found a home in the book before it won for itself a place on the gallery wall. Only a few years after the birth of photography, the publication of Henry Fox Talbot's "The Pencil of Nature" heralded a new genre in the history of the book, one in which the photograph was the primary vehicle of expression and communication, or stood in equal if sometimes conflicted partnership with the written word. In this book, practicing photographers and writers across several fields of scholarship share a range of fresh approaches to reading the photobook, developing new ways of understanding how meaning is shaped by an image's interaction with its text and context and engaging with the visual, tactile and interactive experience of the photobook in all its dimensions. Through close studies of individual works, the photobook from fetishised objet d'art to cheaply-printed booklet is explored and its unique creative and cultural contributions celebrated.

In a trio of Island Boy Photobooks subtitled ""My Life in Pictures,"" Arnold presents a visual history of his family and that of his wife, Helena. Through hundreds of family photos - most in full color - ""My Life in Pictures 1"" presents Arnold's and Helena's grandparents, parents, and other family members. The story continues through 70 years of family and island history, from 1910 to 1979. That period had its personal and community tragedies, including the fatal crashes of two jet airliners and a massive, but thankfully non-fatal, fire aboard a visiting cruise ship. The 1970s also had its happy events, including Arnold and Helena's wedding and the birth of their daughter, Selene. Future installments in the trilogy will focus on the 1980s and 1990s in ""My Life in Pictures 2"" and bring things up to date in the 21st Century in ""My Life in Pictures 3.""

David Bradford is a photographer and New York City taxi driver, who epitomizes the concept of carrying a camera during regular day-to-day activities. Bradford mainly shoots while he's working, capturing the essence of New York City in all its human, architectural and climatic diversity.
