Subway (Signed Copy)
Bruce Davidson
Subway (Signed Copy)
1986
Book hardbound
0 x 0 in. (0 x 0 mm)
Aperture, New York, 1986. First edition. Oblong quarto. Cloth, near fine in near fine dust jacket. Signed by the photographer on half title. An extraordinary book which picks up where Walker Evan's 1940's photographs of the New York Subway published in 1966 in "Many are Called" leave off. These gritty color images "move from the menacing to the lyrical, from the soulful to the satiric. They include lovers, commuters, tourists, families, and the homeless." The book was reprinted by the St. Ann's Press in 2003, but this is the scarce first edition, made even rarer by the presence of the photographer's signature.
Price: $750 (ref. 9028)

Under One Sky
Margo Davis
Under One Sky
2004
Book hardbound
12-1/4 x 12-1/4 in. (311 x 311 mm)
Stanford University Press, Stanford, CA, 2004. Cloth over boards. With dust jacket. 94 pages. The 60 b&w plates in this large-format book are portraits created between 1968 and 2003. Straightforward and sensitive to the range of the human condition, Margo Davis's black-and-white portraits have been a mainstay of American photography for decades. A former teacher at the Ansel Adams Yosemite Workshops, Davis' images capture their subjects unsentimentally yet with palpable affection and an emphasis on place and context. This volume collects 40 years of her best work, with 60 superbly reproduced plates. The result is an exceptional sharpness of detail and richness of tonality to rival the originals. Generally in near mint condition with two closed tears on the dust jacket.
Price: $60 (ref. 9154)

Night Vision: Intimacies of an Unblinking Eye
Marcus Doyle
Night Vision: Intimacies of an Unblinking Eye
2005
Chromogenic print (Kodak Ultra Endura) hardbound book in slip case with limited edition print
9-1/2 x 12 in. (241 x 305 mm)
Twenty-six photographs by Doyle are reproduced in full color and are accompanied by an essay by Matt Damsker. This 32-page book is a special edition, which is cloth hardbound (plus dust jacket) and slip-cased and comes with an 8 x 10 inch signed photograph and is limited to only 100 copies (ISBN 0-9771415-1-9), for a starting price of $500 (to increase $100 per 20 copies sold). To quote Matt Damsker's essay: "The photographs of Marcus Doyle transform the familiar spaces and landscapes of the modern world into twilight zones--nearly surreal, almost alien, yet always recognizable for what they are…Doyle's large-format approach, with saturated colors that result from exposures as long as three hours, turns his unstaged tableaux into visions of exalted expectancy amidst man's tendency to trivialize. Indeed, it is as if these easily overlooked spaces are awaiting the arrival of nothing less than an intergalactic mother ship. But Doyle doesn't strive for any rhetorical or ironic effect, although his photographs are rich with aesthetic ironies. Photography, after all, is fundamentally about light, yet for the most part Doyle photographs darkness, painstakingly capturing the fugitive illumination that is always there yet often invisible to the naked eye. Just as ironic is the rigorous absence of human figuration, yet all of Doyle's deserted landscapes have been impinged upon by human development, urban sprawl or feeble gestures that aim to reincorporate the natural world where man has more or less rolled over it."
