Inherent Vice

Hippies. Believe it or not their place and influence over us even now, in the 21st century, eludes simple definition. Thomas Pynchon's new novel Inherent Vice approaches this idea with more gusto and sheer fun than a scientist with a lab full of ping pong balls perched on mouse traps trying to understand randomness as a quantifiable system. Look, I love Thomas Pynchon but I lost interest just a few hundred pages into Mason & Dixon. I couldn't follow it. But, with Inherent Vice he's produced something as accessible as the Coen Brothers funniest efforts. Give it a go. Thomas Pynchon is writing for the rest of us again.

Winogrand Documentary


Great Winogrand documentary. See the real reason why he had so many tilted horizons. Plus, wonderful footage of GW stuffing exposed film into a filing cabinet.

Mark Steinmetz

Mark Steinmetz' web-imagery fails to do justice to the fine black and white reproductions found in his book South East. Getting good images of work that originated on film out onto the internet is not always the easiest thing to do.

Nonetheless, you should see enough work in that section of his web-site to justify a purchase from Nazareli Press: http://www.nazraeli.com/bookdetail.php?book_id=100199

David Goldblatt

It seems that copies of David Goldblatt's newest book "Intersections Intersected" are hard to come by here in the United States. Fortunately you can view the work on the web-site of his gallery, Michael Stevenson: http://www.michaelstevenson.com/contemporary/exhibitions/goldblatt/intersections20082/index.htm

Annelies Strba


Many years ago Ms. Strba published an amazing book of photographs made/by/of/with her family called Shades of Time. It is long out or print but you can see a sequence of some of the pictures on her personal site: http://strba.ch/diashow/
