The fruit of fantastic recent discoveries from Saul Leiter's vast archive, In My Room provides an in-depth study of the nude, through intimate photographs of the women Leiter knew. Showing deeply personal interior spaces, often illuminated by the lush natural light of the artist's studio in New York City's East Village, these black-and-white images reveal a unique type of collaboration between Leiter and his subjects. In the 1970s Leiter planned to make a book of nudes, but the project was never realized in his lifetime. Now, we get a first-time look at this body of work, which was begun on Leiter's arrival in New York in 1946 and honed over the next two decades. Leiter, who was also a painter, allows abstract elements into the photographs and often shows the influence of his favorite artists, including Bonnard, Vuillard and Matisse. Leiter, who painted and took pictures prolifically up to his death, worked in relative obscurity until he entered his eighties. He preferred to be left alone, and resisted any type of explanation or analysis of his work. With In My Room, Leiter ushers viewers into his private world while retaining his strong sense of mystery. Saul Leiter was born in Pittsburgh in 1923. In 1946 he moved to New York to become a painter, but was encouraged to pursue photography by the photographic experimentation and influence of his friend, the Abstract Expressionist Richard Pousette-Dart. Leiter subsequently enjoyed a successful career as a fashion photographer spanning three decades, and his images were published in magazines such as Esquire, Harper's Bazaar, Elle and British Vogue. His work is held in many prestigious private and public collections, including The Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Victoria and Albert Museum. Leiter died in November 2013.

Hungarian-born André Kertész (1894-1985) was one of the most influential and popular photographers of the twentieth century. This volume presents for the first time selections from the Getty Museum's holdings of Kertész's photographs, including work from his Budapest, Paris, and New York periods. The book also offers an intimate look at Kertész through a dialogue among four of the people who knew the artist best during the last years of his life: Robert Gurbo, Curator of New York's André and Elizabeth Kertész Foundation; David Travis, Curator of Photography at the Art Institute; Sylvia Plachy, photographer; and the Getty's Curator of Photographs, Weston Naef. The discussion was moderated by Charles Hagen, writer and critic for the New York Times.

When he arrived in Paris, Koudelka had already produced two outstanding works of reportage. One documented the Prague Spring, while the other, on gypsies, could almost have been an ethnological study had its images not been charged with so much emotion. Unknown in 1970, he rose to become one of the most powerful photographers of his day.This book shows that in the lands of exile through which he travels with his amazing urge to see, Koudelkas own particular talent has been affirmed and expanded.

Saul Leiter (1923-2013) has been hailed as one of the great pioneers of 20th century colour photography. His body of work spans more than 70 years and is in the collections of many important museums. With the landmark publication of his monographEarly Color (2006) his work at last came to the fore. The book was followed by numerous exhibitions, the largest of which was a major retrospective at Deichtorhallen in Hamburg (2012). In 2013, Thomas Leach made In No Great Hurry, a full-feature documentary film about Saul Leiter and his work. But Leiter was more than a great photographer; he was – and always had been – a prolific painter, though this side of his creative life received far less attention. One strand among his paintings is noticeable: the art of painting over prints of nudes that he himself photographed and printed. This publication reproduces over eighty such painted nudes, created over a period of over forty years. This long overdue book sheds light on the vitality and originality of Saul Leiter's art and his mastery of colour.

Paolo Roversi's photographs of women are elegant, dreamy, and playful. They are borne by a "grandezza of the profession", a great responsibility for the beauty of all things handcrafted that doesn't seem to exist in this way outside Italy. The first volume of the small Encyclopedia of Women Paolo Roversi is planning is dedicated to his present muse, the model Guinevere Van Seenus, with whom he has taken many of his most beautiful fashion and nude photographs in recent years. In a loose series of selected pictures liberated from the commercial purpose to which they owe their very existence, we see a poetic double personality profile, in which the famous photo model and the equally famous photographer meet as though in a photographic lens. A top-grade meeting of style, beauty, and poetry.

The volume brings together the works of 13 contemporary Japanese artists. The contemporary Japanese scene is remarkably complex, extremely varied, and even enticing. The fact that it is impossible to define one or more trends is extremely positive: there are so many different fields of research, all explored with equal intensity and with an originality that Western photography so often lacks. And this is another characteristic that makes Japanese images unique. The photographers are able to distance themselves from the weighty legacy of the masters and take up issues related to the changes underway in contemporary society, addressing them in limpid works that can be formally classic yet incisive, raw and essential. Maiko Haruki, Naoki Ishikawa, Tomoko Kikuchi, Toshiya Murakoshi, Yurie Nagashima, Sohei Nishino, Koji Onaka, Yuki Onodera, Chino Otsuka, Tomoko Sawada, Lieko Shiga, Risaku Suzuki, Ryoko Suzuki, and Chikako Yamashiro belong to a generation of artists who are proceeding in open order and still lack the appropriate support, but are aware of their skills. They are also able to appeal to people's sensitivity across the board, especially that of the critics and Western public, who seem to have been dulled by redundant aestheticism for years.

Salgados images of the Sahel famine and his colossal project Workers would be enough to make his reputation and justify all the awards he has received. But there is more.A native of Brazil, trained as an economist, Sebastião Salgado has shown a constant faith in mankind, a solidarity that never wavers or flinches in the face of pain, an ability to analyse extreme situations, a fierce drive to affirm what he truly is, a humanist photographer.
