— Tim Davis
Shane Lavalette was commissioned by the High Museum of Art in Atlanta to create a new series of photographs for their 2012 exhibition, “Picturing the South.” Lavalette’s monograph, One Sun, One Shadow, is an extension of this body of work. Native to the Northeast, it was primarily through traditional music — the sounds of old time, blues, and gospel — that Lavalette had formed a relationship with the South. With that in mind, the region’s rich musical history became the natural entry point for this project and the resulting photographs. One Sun, One Shadow includes a text by artist and poet Tim Davis.
Shane Lavalette is an American photographer, an independent publisher and editor, and the director of Light Work. He holds a BFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University.

Title: LICHTQUELLEN Photographer: Jonathan Cuadros Publisher: Pogo Books Date of publication: March 2017 Pages: 48 pages + 4 folds Dimensions: 200mm x 280mm Edition: First Edition of 250, hand-signed & dated by the artist ISBN: 978-3-942547-59-8 Popularly a standard-bearer for freedom in post-cold war Europe as well as broiling youth culture Mecca, the Berlin in "Lichtquellen" is a black-and-white ghost town. In this visual diary, monuments, balloon animals, and passersby are transfigured by the “dark grainy abyss that one can only find in the city’s notorious winter tristesse” into alternating signifiers of isolation, hope, and sometimes humor. Cuadros' debut collection displays a blend of shadowy urban nightscapes, candid portraiture, and off-the-cuff snaps as he explores the visual poetics of (film) photography.
Title: A QUIET CONTINENT Photographer: Damian Seagar Publisher: Self-Published Date of publication: 2016 Pages: 76 pages + Cover Dimensions: 10 x 8 inches Edition:N/A, hand-signed by the artist ISBN: NA A collection of moody and quiet Australian Landscapes shot on 35mm film.
Damian has been proudly and exclusively shooting film for almost 20 years, often being calling a ‘stubborn purist’ as he has never
used a digital camera. He loves the slow, careful process and discipline of using film; taking only one photograph of something and learning from his mistakes, often not discovered 'til weeks later when the film is processed. He enjoys travelling on his own in no particular direction to see where the road and his eye takes him. These images are the product of many a road-trip and unplanned adventure.
Title: FIVE DAYS TO SANTA FE Photographer: Tony Edwards Publisher: Self Date of publication: February 2017 Pages: 52 unpaginated pages, softcover Dimensions: 215.9mm x 279.4mm (8.5x11 in.) Edition: 35, hand-signed & dated by the artist ISBN: 978-1-36-640370-4 Five Days to Santa Fe is not just a photographic drive across three states, but a search for clarity with the city of Santa Fe as gatekeeper. The mountains of New Mexico have always been a haven for my family but as I’ve gotten older and busier its been more difficult to find time for those retreats. Ultimately, these pictures attempt to depict ascension to a literal and metaphysical asylum bathed in color and quietude.
