              For more than forty years Nelly Rau-Haring wandered the streets of the city with her camera. She pursued her two great passions: her enthusiasm for photography and her curiosity about Berlin's residents. Along with her virtuoso eye for strongly expressive details, these things ma...ke her a special type of chronicler. She always narrates history through the small moments of everyday life, the atmosphere on the streets, and the energetic activities of the people. She traveled through both West and East Berlin, capturing contemporary life on film through faces, shop windows, and building panoramas. To celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, Hatje Cantz is releasing this splendid photography book. It provides a comprehensive look at this photographic universe, whose pictures are the expression of personal devotion, as well as of historical significance.

              In his latest book, Takay presents photographs that pay homage to the creative power and style of the great Japanese designer, Yohji Yamamoto. Fluence was shot primarily in Tokyo, Japan. In it, Takay has captured the magic and mystery of artistic forces and his native country. Th...e images in Fluence are shot in black and white which punctuate the subject and the black designs and silhouettes of Yojhi Yamamoto's clothing. The subjects in the book are some of Japan's most accomplished creatives, actors, musicians and models. The locations hark back to Japan of the 1980's, the end of the Showa era. Takay subconsciously chose locations that reflect this, the era he lived in prior to leaving Japan. These previously unseen photographs blend the Japanese landscape with the transformative power and energy of the people and the archive collection. The seed for this book was planted many years ago at the start of Takay's career when he worked with Terry Jones on a Yohji project, and came to fruition after he was offered the use of the Yohji Yamamoto archive collection which spans 40 years of design. In Takay's opinion, Yohji Yamamoto's designs have a strong avant-garde, masculine style, mixed with a strong Japanese sensibility and elegance. When he began his project, he thought about what he could do with the clothes but while working with the people dressed in the collection, there was a transformation visually for him, which inspired him to create the images in this book.

              Futuristic megalopolises, post-atomic sludge, urban ruins. These have been the subjects of Giacomo Costa's work since the early Agglomerati series with which he made his debut in the world of art in 1996. Since then all Costa's works have contributed to an imagery that uses the f...ascination of landscapes and their undeniably repellent beauty to reflect on the effects of human actions on the planet we live on. With his work, Costa does not offer us solutions or answers, but uses his ability to build fascinating and terrifying images to generate a restless state that encourages us to ask questions. Neither he nor any one of us has the answers; we must find them together. Hoping they take us in the right direction. Giacomo Costa's research initially began with the study of photography before moving gradually in a direction that has lost all contact with traditional technique, employing sophisticated digital techniques borrowed from the world of cinema. The new book, A helpful guide to nowhere, starts again from the beginning of Costa's work, focusing on the last ten years with many previously unseen and unpublished images.

              In the mid-1970s, Robert Adams began recording nocturnal scenes near his former home in Longmont, Colorado. Illuminated by moonlight and streetlamp, suburban houses, roads, sidewalks and fields seemed transfigured. 25 years after first publishing a sequence of these pictures in 1...985 as Summer Nights, he revisited his project, amending its title and completely re-editing its contents to create a more disquieting and thus more accurate reflection of his experience. Hailed as a new classic, Summer Nights, Walking went out of print soon after it was published in 2009. This sensitively enlarged edition, printed with the same exquisite care as the original, makes this revered body of work available to a new audience. What attracted me to the subjects at a new hour was the discovery then of a neglected peace. Robert Adams

              The view from Lookout Mountain west of Denver is of natural forms and our imprint on them, of the timeless and the passing. Generations have made their way there to find perspective on the city and the plains beyond. Robert Adams photographed from the overlook in 1970, and again ...in 1984. For this volume, he has assembled a selection of views, by him and by others, that document a complex location that inspires both hope and despair. The site is an admixture: Buffalo Bill Cody's grave is located a few hundred feet to the south; the Coors brewery stands downhill; in the distance the sunrise reflects from unnatural lakes created by gravel quarrying required to make cement.

              In the fall of 1968, Robert Adams, a college English teacher, found himself inexplicably drawn to photograph a nondescript area south of Colorado Springs whose most notable feature was a truck stop off the interstate. Unflinching in their description yet embodying a mysteriously ...radiant peace, the pictures Adams made of the otherwise graceless site confirmed for him a vital new way of relating to the world. He would parlay this revelation into The New West, the book that would establish both his photographs and his subject-the contemporary landscape of the American frontier-as matters of wider consequence. This pivotal early series has been re-edited to include previously unpublished pictures from the period. The subject of these pictures is not tract homes or freeways but the source of all Form, light ... light of such richness that banality is impossible. Robert Adams, from The New West

              Co-published with The Walther Collection, this book is the first to present a comprehensive selection of the work of South African photographer Jo Ractliffe. Looking back over the past 35 years, it brings together images from major photo-essays, as well as early works that have n...ot been seen before. Described by Okwui Enwezor as one of the most accomplished and underrated photographers of her generation, Ractliffe started working in the early 1980s, and her photographs continue to reflect her preoccupation with the South African landscape and the ways in which it figures in the country's imaginary-particularly the violent legacies of apartheid. In 2007 she extended her interests to the war in Angola and published three photobooks on the aftermath of that conflict and its manifestations in the South African landscape: Terreno Ocupado (2008), As Terras do Fim do Mundo (2010) and The Borderlands (2015). In Ractliffe's work, to see-particularly in the treacherous case of South Africa, where, despite appearances of black-and-white moral clarity, things are far murkier than often revealed-is to see beyond what the image reveals itself to be.

              Battlefields is Francois-Marie Banier's celebration of gay culture at its most flamboyant and proud. Comprised of photos taken at Gay Prides in Brussels, London, New York, Paris and Rome between 1994 and 2018, Banier captures the full glamorous spectrum of those parading, all the... feathers, sequins and leather; but, more importantly, also the characters beneath the make-up and wigs- I photograph the poetry, the humor, the confrontation with blinkered convention. Having lost close friends to AIDS, he remembers the tragedy of this elusive, diabolical virus, but also the compassion of those who nursed and supported its victims: More than angels. Such delicate devotion, full of invention. Loyalty, so touching, overwhelming. For Banier, light inevitably conquers darkness: I follow and paint as usual with my camera, almost always in black and white. The wild ones, the choir boys, those crowned with Valda throat drops, the notaries in their fancy dress, the babes of Gala and Salvador Dali-storytellers from every country, a whole world that knows how to laugh and to pray. My roadmap: the long path through cities, fields, legs, illusions, smoke signals, sun rays, gesticulations, Gay Prides where light from the soul, the body, the heart pierces the world's rigid, trance-like imagery.

              This book presents for the first time Jim Dine's Secret Drawings, a series of 45 majestic, dynamic and dense drawings made between 2012 and 2018 in his studios in Walla Walla, Washington, and Paris. Ranging in size from 50 x 70 to 104 x 152 cm, these works are the product of Dine...'s intense, restless processes of application, erasure and most importantly re-working, using materials as diverse as charcoal, China ink, pastel, fixative, oil enamel and acrylic paints, as well as collage. The textures of the papers- what I had on the floor and lying around -vary greatly, as do Dine's tools, from sticks, brushes, knives, rotary grinders and the artists' bare hands. The resulting drawings are raw, explosive, caught in the process of becoming, abstract yet with hints of familiar forms, perhaps a rectangle, oval, a slice or an aperture. For Dine himself, these drawings ultimately hold a deeper, more personal, secrecy: 84 years ago (I am 84 years old ) I emerged from a dark place. Then, it was thought of as a very secret place (I mean in the world). I have been depicting this landscape ever since. Hinting at it and confronting the subject matter directly. The thicket of marks and the anatomical reference is all here on the paper. Dine's art seemingly flows effortlessly. His capacity to extend his visual ideas is astonishing, not only for someone in his ninth decade, but any age.
