An evocative new series from Mario Testino Mario Testino's Undressed removes various layers. Coinciding with an exhibition conceived exclusively for the Helmut Newton Foundation in Berlin, this intimate series explores the notion of undressing in photography as much as it lays Testino's archive bare, probing beyond the photographer's established public image to reveal a deeper understanding of his practice and oeuvre. The 50 featured photographs center on the naked body, alternately exploring and pushing the traditions and boundaries between sex, gender identity, and fashion. Honoring the influence of Helmut Newton, the images become abstracted body landscapes, the protagonists appearing as mere form, a torso, even a statue. A special highlight are previously unseen photographs shot in the Testino studio, in which an exuberant atmosphere intermingles with the implicit frisson of nudity and where playfully amorous dynamics never slip into the obscene or pornographic. Testino's lineup ranges from supermodel protagonists, such as Kate Moss and Amber Valletta, to anonymous, androgynous men; from individual portraits to group photos. We see many intimate moments, some caught candidly, some consciously orchestrated, such as a young man shaving a woman's upper pubic hair in a luxurious bathroom. Following in the tradition of SIR, many of the images may be seen to redefine masculine paradigms in the same way that Newton created his own brand of female beauty. As emotions, aesthetics, and bodies meet, Testino grants new insight into his world-famous work. The images are accompanied by an introduction from curator Matthias Harder, a candid conversation piece with Carine Roitfeld, as well as an essay from psychiatrist and psychologist Manfred Spitzer who offers a neuroscientific perspective on our visual perception of bodies and beauty.

In this landmark photography publication and accompanying exhibition, Cl�ment Ch�roux demonstrates how Magnum Photos owes its pre-eminence to the ability of its photographers to encompass and navigate the points between photography as art object and photography as documentary evidence. A Magnum photograph can be expressive and bear witness at the same time. Magnum Manifesto is organized into three main parts: Part 1 (1947-1968) views the Magnum archive through a humanist lens, focusing on post-war ideals of commonality and utopianism. Part 2 (1969-1989) shows a world fragmenting, with a focus on subcultures, minorities and outsiders. Part 3 (1990-present day) charts the ways in which Magnum photographers have captured - and continue to capture - a world in flux and under threat. Featuring both group and individual projects, the book includes contact sheets, notebooks, magazine spreads and other previously unseen material to accompany the photographs. Complete with extensive texts by Cl�ment Ch�roux and photographic historian Clara Bouveresse, Magnum Manifesto is an essential purchase for anyone seeking to understand the very best in photography.

Internationally renowned photographer Christopher Makos compiles here the finest of his black and white photography. With startling innovation and an eye for the cutting edge, Makos has made an extraordinary contribution to modern photography, continuously pushing the boundaries of his medium. Everything: The Black and White Monograph celebrates the work and influence of the man Andy Warhol called "the most modern photographer in America." Everything is a comprehensive survey of Mako's photographic work from 1973 to the present. As Peter Wise writes, it is a collection of images "so distinctly of a particular moment that a whole context is encapsulated" that communicate "something singular about a cultural moment." This compilation, the first volume in a projected series, is unbound by "categories, themes, or specific subject matter." Instead, it serves as a period piece, a vision of a particular time and place assembled by the man Doston Rader says is "widely considered the most important and gifted photographer of his generation." Contents: Artworks; Photo Index; Introduction; Notes on Everything; Biography; Bibliography; Author Chronolo; Makostudio.

For more than four decades, Sally Mann has made experimental, elegiac, and hauntingly beautiful photographe that explore the overarching themes of existence : memory, desire, death, the bonds of family, and nature's magisterial indifference to human endeavor. What unites this broad body of work—including figure studies, landscapes, and architectural views—is that it is all bred of a place, the American South. Fully immersed in its literary and visual culture, Mann— a native of Lexington, Virginia— has long written about what it means to live in the South and to be identified as a southerner. Using her deep love of her homeland and her knowledge of its fraught heritage, she asks powerful, provocative questions—about history, identity, race, and religion—that reverberate across geographic and national boundaries. Presenting essays both personal and scholarly, this richly illustrated monograph constitutes an in-depth exploration of the evolution of Mann's art, with more than one hundred photographs, including several previously unpublished ones. Sally Mann : A Thousand Crossings considers how Mann's relationship with her native land has shaped her work and how the legacy of the South—as both homeland and graveyard, refuge and battleground — continues to inform American identity and experience.
