Private Room is a series of photographs of eight different women who Pamela Hanson photographed between 2012 and 2014 at Lafayette House, a small hotel in New York City. Beginning when she photographed Camille Rowe in 2012, the photographs in Private Room progressed into a series of nudes and semi-nudes. Although it began as a personal project, soon after starting Hanson wanted to develop it into a book. Hanson was inspired to shoot in the Lafayette House because of its European feeling. A brownstone built in the 19th century, the hotel is a place of forgotten beauty, with walls lined in gold-leafed wallpaper. Something not seen much in today's modern New York, it is charming, sexy, romantic, and private. Women photographed by a woman: the intimate and feminine environment captures the essence of each subject. Hanson collaborated with stylist Susan Winget, and together they cast each woman for her individual beauty and personality.
Private Room is a series of images of eight women that fashion photographer Pamela Hanson photographed between 2012 and 2014 in a small hotel on the Bowery in New York City. Beginning with her portraits of Camille Rowe in 2012, the photographs in Private Room progressed into a series of nudes and seminudes, which Hanson quickly decided to develop into a book. Hanson was inspired by the interiors of the Lafayette House, a brownstone built in the 19th century that is a place of forgotten beauty, with walls lined in gold-leafed wallpaper--charming, sexy, romantic and private. Its intimate environment elucidates the character of each subject, in a celebration of female beauty and confidence. Hanson collaborated with stylist Susan Winget on these images, casting each woman together. Edition of 1,000 copies.
Shots rang out in Savannah's grandest mansion in the misty,early morning hours of May 2, 1981. Was it murder or self-defense? For nearly a decade, the shooting and its aftermath reverberated throughout this hauntingly beautiful city of moss-hung oaks and shaded squares. John Berendt's sharply observed, suspenseful, and witty narrative reads like a thoroughly engrossing novel, and yet it is a work of nonfiction. Berendt skillfully interweaves a hugely entertaining first-person account of life in this isolated remnant of the Old South with the unpredictable twists and turns of a landmark murder case. It is a spellbinding story peopled by a gallery of remarkable characters: the well-bred society ladies of the Married Woman's Card Club; the turbulent young redneck gigolo; the hapless recluse who owns a bottle of poison so powerful it could kill every man, woman, and child in Savannah; the aging and profane Southern belle who is the "soul of pampered self-absorption"; the uproariously funny black drag queen; the acerbic and arrogant antiques dealer; the sweet-talking, piano-playing con artist; young blacks dancing the minuet at the black debutante ball; and Minerva, the voodoo priestess who works her magic in the graveyard at midnight. These and other Savannahians act as a Greek chorus, with Berendt revealing the alliances, hostilities, and intrigues that thrive in a town where everyone knows everyone else. Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil is a sublime and seductive reading experience. Brilliantly conceived and masterfully written, this enormously engaging portrait of a most beguiling Southern city has become a modern classic.
In this book, photographer Akila Berjaoui shows how her love for the beach is inextricably linked with her artistic vision. Akila Berjaoui's incredibly sensual photographs often feature sand, sun, water--or a combination of all three. In her first book, this highly sought-after fashion photographer, armed with her favorite old analogue cameras, takes us to breathtaking seaside locations, from her hometown of Sydney, Australia, to the bathing hotspots of Italy, France, and Brazil, to name just a few. Much in the tradition of Slim Arons, Bruce Weber, Peter Beard, Claude Nori, and Juergen Teller--all of whom she regards as influences on her work--Berjaoui's photos harken back to the 1950s, '60s, '70s, and '80s with their soft colors and sultry joie de vivre. As a woman, Berjaoui is able to draw out her female subjects with a sense of kinship, rather than voyeurism. One of the world's most in-demand photographers, Akila Berjaoui is destined to make a name for herself in the field of travel, beauty, and lifestyle photography.

The Barber brothers know their way around a football field—but can they succeed on the basketball court? Find out in this slam dunk with “lively basketball action and life lessons aplenty (Kirkus Reviews)” from NFL superstars and bestselling authors Tiki and Ronde Barber.

Tiki doesn’t feel the inner confidence he felt on the football field: it’s one thing to play in the driveway, but it’s another to sink one on the court, when so much is on the line.

By the year 2050, Earth's population will double. If we continue with current farming practices, vast amounts of wilderness will be lost, millions of birds and billions of insects will die, and the public will lose billions of dollars as a consequence of environmental degradation. Clearly, there must be a better way to meet the need for increased food production. Written as part memoir, part instruction, and part contemplation, Tomorrow's Table argues that a judicious blend of two important strands of agriculture--genetic engineering and organic farming--is key to helping feed the world's growing population in an ecologically balanced manner. Pamela Ronald, a geneticist, and her husband, Raoul Adamchak, an organic farmer, take the reader inside their lives for roughly a year, allowing us to look over their shoulders so that we can see what geneticists and organic farmers actually do. The reader sees the problems that farmers face, trying to provide larger yields without resorting to expensive or environmentally hazardous chemicals, a problem that will loom larger and larger as the century progresses. They learn how organic farmers and geneticists address these problems. This book is for consumers, farmers, and policy decision makers who want to make food choices and policy that will support ecologically responsible farming practices. It is also for anyone who wants accurate information about organic farming, genetic engineering, and their potential impacts on human health and the environment.
Following the success of Girls, Assouline presents a photographic tribute by the talented Pamela Hanson evoking the moods and subtle intentions that are boys. Between childhood and adulthood, a boy incarnates over a period of time drenched with fresh seduction and tender glamour. Pamela Hanson perfectly captures this spirit in moments of friendship, foolishness, and romanticism. Just as Girls was an homage to a very special side of the feminine, so too Boys captures the essence of the male youth. Hanson s photos are extremely intimate yet also evoke a general mood that is universally experiencedby anyone coming of age. Naivety and self-assertion, gentleness and insolence, androgyny and virility, this is a poignant book about life and its most elusive moments. Accompanying the photographs are insightful quotes by some of the writers (Plato, Mark Twain, Charles Dickens), and women (Christy Turlington, Julianne Moore, Sofia Coppola) who know them best. From the beaches of East Hampton to the cafs of Paris, on soccer fields, or behind the wheel of vintage cars, Boys captures the male spirit in all its glory.
This cookbook, based on the game-changing web series Chef's Night Out, features stories of the world's best chefs' debauched nights on the town, and recipes for the food they cook to soak up the booze afterwards.
