Published by Rm/Ccccb/Fundacion Foto Colectania
Hardcover. Dimensions: 10.2in. x 7.5in. x 1.0in.As the photobook becomes increasingly broadly recognized as a genre with its own rich history, canon and critical culture, Photobook Phenomenon surveys the views of those who have played a leading role in defining this genre: Martin Parr, Gerry Badger, Markus Schaden and Frederic Lezmi, Horacio Fernandez, Ryuichi Kaneko, Erik Kessels, Irene de Mendoza and Moritz Neumuller. In addition, it features various contemporary artists who have contributed a genuine vision to the medium and who discuss the creative processes involved in producing a photobook: Laia Abril, Julian Baron, Alejandro Cartagena, Jana Romanova, Vivianne Sassen, Thomas Sauvin i Katja Stuke and Oliver Sieber. Photobook Phenomenon also explores the challenge of displaying a photobook through a number of interactive systems that make it possible to look through and experience the book and photography from diverse viewpoints.

Exhibition - In the Shadow of the Pyramids by Laura El-Tantawy at Gulf Photo Plus
DateFriday, March 6, 2015 at 10:39PM

In the Shadow of the Pyramids by Laura El-Tantawy is the latest exhibition at Gulf Photo Plus, on till Saturday, 4th April 2015.  

Laura El-Tantawy began this series in 2005 when she was compelled to explore the essence of Egyptian identity in the hope of coming to terms with her own. Guided by childhood memories, her photographs are not meant to be objective observations of a nation, but rather personal reflections of Egypt through her own eyes.

In the Shadow of the Pyramids is a first person perspective exploring memory and identity. With images spanning 2005 to 2014, what began as a look in the mirror to understand the essence of Egyptian identity expanded into an exploration of the trials and tribulations of a turbulent nation. The result is dark, sentimental and passionate.

Here's a small selection of images from the exhibition.

The series was published in a book that was released earlier this year. The book can be purchased at Gulf Photo Plus or ordered online.

Juxtaposing the innocence of the past with the obscurity of the present, the book is an experience, edited to look like a one night’s encounter. A peaceful and tranquil day suddenly turns violent and chaotic, it’s claustrophobic, until a new dawn rises and there is hope again.

»EUROMAIDAN is a stealthy book, it looks small and lo-fi, but it creeps up on you. When you start looking through the pages, there is an exquisite sense of the beauty in the handmade pages, the printing glossy like tar, and the tension in what it depicts, that feels quite breathless. It is understated darkness, in all senses, with saturated tones and glimpsed moments, like traumatic flashbacks.«

Chizu / The Map (Signed and stamped)
Photographs: Kikuji Kawada
Text: Kenzaburo Oe
Publisher: Bijutsu Shuppansha
98 pages
Year: 1965

Comments: Hardcover, in a slipcase and a box, 225 x 150 mm. First and true edition, 1965. Extremely scarce copy and one of the most collectible japanese photobooks. Included in The Japanese Photobooks by Kaneko & Vartanian ; The Photobook by Parr & Badger, vol.1. Pristine copy in a very fresh slipcase (slightly colored). Signed and stamped by the photographer!

First published on August 6, 1965, the 20th anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima - The Map ("Chizu") is one of the most important photobooks ever. It has appeared in Roth's Book of 101 Books, Parr & Badger The Photobook : A History, Vol I and the Photobooks of the 1960s and 1970s by Ivan Vartanian and Ryuichi Kaneko as well.

"No photobook has been more successful in combining graphic design with complex photographic narrative. [as its] various layers inside [are] peeled away like archeological strata, the whole process of viewing the book becomes one of uncovering and contemplating the ramifications of recent Japanese history -- especially the country's tangled relationship with the United States. Kawada's photographs are a masterly amalgam of abstraction and realism, of the specific and the ineffable, woven into a tapestry that makes the act of reading them a process of re-creation in itself. In the central metaphor of the map, in the idea of the map as a series of interlocking trace marks, Kawada has conjured a brilliant simile for the photograph itself: scientific record, memory trace, cultural repository, puzzle and guide."--Parr & Badger
