              Author Ann Marks unravels the mysteries surrounding the life of Vivian Maier, the nanny who lived secretly as a world-class photographer. Revelations include a traumatic New York childhood with a family at such odds, its ten members were buried in nine different cemeteries. An em...otionally damaged Maier overcame early constraints through fortitude, intellect, and immense creative resources, to live an independent, fulfilling life on her own terms. The only person in the world granted access to 140,000 photographs, home movies and tape recordings, Marks writes the definitive biography, placing the photographer's work in the context of her life experiences and persona. Based on clues found in pictures, genealogical records and interviews with those who knew the photographer during each stage of her life, the biography is rigorously researched and complete. Unlike typical academic prose, Marks' treatment is clear, engaging, and relatable, with a narrative that unfolds like a bestseller. Vivian Maier Developed relates the arc of the photographer's life to her body of work, illustrated with over 500 images, both favorites and unseen, offering an inspiring tale of a socially conscious, uniquely complex and highly talented woman.

              Through the Lens of Faith - Auschwitz
               

              Through the Lens of Faith - Auschwitz (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Englander, Caryl; Lustiger Thaler, Henri; Steidl, Gerhard; Liebskind, Daniel

              Through the Lens of Faith is Caryl Englander's original and affecting visual archive of witnesses of the Holocaust, presented alongside conversations exploring their diverse belief systems. Englander photographed them during emotive moments of interviewing over the past three yea...rs. The resulting portraits encapsulate mnemonic tensions between an unmasterable past and the present. Englander photographed intense discursive encounters during which writer Henri Lustiger Thaler, chief curator of the Amud Aish Memorial Museum, who has interviewed hundreds of Holocaust survivors, asked Englander's subjects to share their stories of Auschwitz, centering on the question of faith: how did it express itself in an environment that was its complete antithesis? Lustiger Thaler's careful arrangement of the survivors' voices presents their complex spiritual responses and narrates the brutality of everyday life in the concentration camp. In his own words: We present stories that are very different from epic-like narratives of `spiritual resistance.' We engage everyday accounts of life in Auschwitz-Birkenau, where faith functioned as a human anchor, a touchstone for expressions of identity and longings for freedom. Through the Lens of Faith will be realized as an exhibition designed by Daniel Libeskind, the renowned architect of memorial spaces including Berlin's Jewish Museum. The exhibition will open on 1 July 2019 at the Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum Memorial site and be displayed for the entire 75th commemorative year (2020) of the liberation of the camp. Libeskind's moving design juxtaposes Englander's photos against the visceral entry to Auschwitz, creating confrontation between symbols of imprisonment and freedom. My work is a visual testament to the absolute endurance of human courage. With each person I had the privilege to meet, I felt their resilience, their hope and their joy for life. Caryl Englander

              Year of the Monkey: The New York Times bestseller

              From the National Book Award-winning author of Just Kids and M Train, a profound, beautifully realized memoir in which dreams and reality are vividly woven into a tapestry of one transformative year. Following a run of New Year's concerts at San Francisco's legendary Fillmore, Pa...tti Smith finds herself tramping the coast of Santa Cruz, about to embark on a year of solitary wandering. Unfettered by logic or time, she draws us into her private wonderland, with no design yet heeding signs, including a talking sign that looms above her, prodding and sparring like the Cheshire Cat. In February, a surreal lunar year begins, bringing with it unexpected turns, heightened mischief, and inescapable sorrow. In a stranger's words, Anything is possible: after all, it's the year of the monkey. For Patti Smith - inveterately curious, always exploring, tracking thoughts, writing the year evolves as one of reckoning with the changes in life's gyre: with loss, aging, and a dramatic shift in the political landscape of America. Smith melds the Western landscape with her own dreamscape. Taking us from Southern California to the Arizona desert; to a Kentucky farm as the amanuensis of a friend in crisis; to the hospital room of a valued mentor; and by turns to remembered and imagined places - this haunting memoir blends fact and fiction with poetic mastery. The unexpected happens; grief and disillusionment. But as Patti Smith heads toward a new decade in her own life, she offers this balm to the reader: her wisdom, wit, gimlet eye, and above all, a rugged hope of a better world. Riveting, elegant, often humorous, illustrated by Smith's signature Polaroids, Year of the Monkey is a moving and original work, a touchstone for our turbulent times.
