              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

              • RRP: $102.50

              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

              Change in New Zealand society, seen in small towns throughout the North and South Islands, is the subject of Mary Macpherson's Old New World photographic book and touring exhibition. The in-depth study by Wellington-based photographer Mary Macpherson took seven years of travel ar...ound New Zealand to create. Lopdell House Gallery in Auckland has published the 96 page hardback book. It will be launched on 14 June 2012 with an exhibition of over 40 images of Macpherson's work to coincide with the Auckland Festival of Photography. The striking colour photographs feature buildings, houses, statues and murals to tell the story of a shift from the remains of the traditional New Zealand of the 1950s and 60s to places of boom and prosperity that look very different to our remembered past. Within that major story arc, I wanted to show the major social and economic trends I saw over the seven years - towns painting up the main street to attract custom and celebrate their identity, places that remained resolutely themselves and those that were heading into decline, said Mary Macpherson.

Instead of becoming like the rest of the world, thi...s beautiful place should become a shining example of hope for survival in a newly balanced environment. "-- Ans Westra. Includes 137 Westra photographs of the New Zealand landscape, with brief text contributions from Hone Tuwhare, Ans Westra, David Lange, David Eggleton, Brian Turner and Russel Norman.

              Craig Potton rose to prominence as a photographer in the late 1980s, with a distinct and original view of the landscape of Aotearoa/New Zealand. He was a photographer with little interest in a sentimentalised or romantic view of the land, but rather pursued a less compromising an...d more muscular vision that sought to convey this country's remarkable landscape in a real light. In the decades since Craig Potton has become one of New Zealand's most distinguished landscape photographers, famous for his moody, often dramatic images that signal a deeply-felt connection with the wild parts of New Zealand. This book collects together many of his most celebrated images in one place, a body of work that clearly shows why his reputation is so strong. The images range from his celebrated aerial photography, especially that of the Southern Alps and Fiordland, and of the volcanoes of the Central North Island, his beautifully composed and complex forest interiors, his gentle seascapes, and also those from the rural parts of New Zealand. Beautifully produced and packaged in large format, this will be a book of New Zealand landscape photography not to be missed.

              Though many have predicted it, postcards have not been killed off by the digital world, and remain very popular with tourists. People still enjoy a straightforward, tangible portrayal of the places they visit and the things they do as tourists. Postcards from New Zealand aims to ...translate the popularity of postcards into book form with a range of postcard-type images that cover the visitor experience in New Zealand. Consequently the photographs in this book are appropriately diverse, with all of the key tourist destinations covered, as well as plenty more in-between. The pocket-edition format has been a spectacularly successful part of Craig Potton Publishing's pictorial New Zealand range, and Postcards from New Zealand will be another welcome addition to this series.
