"For the past ten years I have worked as a painter and decorator in London, both as a means of surviving and also funding my artistic practise. The two roles of artist and decorator are not always easily reconciled, time demands and budgets often lead to a conflict of interests. I started photographing my daily life as a way of negotiating this conflict. The publication contains a selection of colour and black and white images taken while at work."

"Comprised of reality tv stills depicting violence in America in the military, police force, and local militia, Lone Wolf frames these institutional and fanatical expressions with excerpts of congressional hearings on the Lone Wolf provision of the Patriot act. The book is further framed by excerpted dialogues from a 1942 documentary on governmental strategies for treating post-traumatic stress disorder soldiers with psycho-hypnotic drug therapies."

Title of publication: Death Mirror
Artist(s) : Sara Abruña, Heather Benjamin, Mikaylah Bowman, Nina Hartmann, Brittni Hessler, Jimmy Limit, Vinnie Smith
8" x 12"
Edition size: 800
"I curated this selection of artists with no distinct concept in mind, but the goal to document a certain attitude, aesthetic, and special quality that i saw in each artist. When i contacted the artists i told them that Kenneth Anger considered his film Scorpio Rising 'A death mirror held up to American culture.' Somehow the works in this publication are tied together by some sort of unspeakable connection, the mere fact that none of the artists cannot be easily grouped into a category, a general otherness."

Artist: Courtney Fitzpatrick
forewords by Harry Greene and Donna Haraway

Mix of hand-printed letterpress and Indigo printing

"Courtney Fitzpatrick spent 17 months in the remote Amboseli basin of Kenya during 2009 and 2010. As Amboseli descended into, suffered from, and eventually emerged from the worst drought in living memory, her evocative writing and photographs became a personal record of a fragile ecosystem. The acts of writing and making photographs for Courtney— while in a region and a situation few people will ever experience—were both a process of discovery and a means for reflection."

"Peter Mann’s new book is a celebration of vernacular advertising photography and a tragicomic look at the reality of branded luxury items away from the multi million dollar advertising campaigns normally used to sell them. The book is made up of photographs and copy used on ebay. Seen without the guile of the worlds top photographers and copywriters many of the things for sale seem absurd and often tinged with tragedy, especially in the current economic climate."

"Taken over three days in the Spanish city of Valencia ‘Orange Days’ is part walking tour part journey to nowhere. With no map or fixed destination we travel from the centre to the scruffy edges and back again via wastelands, parks and anonymous districts. Through a combination of happenstance and rigorous looking ‘photographic opportunities’ slowly reveal themselves and as the sun beats down sanctuary is sought in the cities back streets and shadowy corners."

"On May 1st, 2012 the Occupy Movement took over an abandoned building in San Francisco "to house the homeless." Once the building had been secured, a small group of activists climbed on to the roof to display a banner. These photographs were shot on 35mm film, printed in the darkroom on single-weight fiber paper, and bound by the artist."
