The series of photographs that Joseph Sudek created in the Mionsi Forest of Morovia's Beskid Mountains is perhaps the most classically Romantic and visually stunning body of work ever made by this important Czech photographer. In the late 1920s, while shooting the interior of Prague's iconic Cathedral of St. Vitus during its final phase of completion, Sudek learned a great deal about light. Years later, alone, deep in the virgin forest, he lay in wait for the light that he knew would lend the ancient trees their ghostly aspect--finding graceful compositions in isolated wilderness. Photography historian Antonin Dufek penned the introduction to this volume, which is the first to present such a comprehensive set of Sudek's photographs of the Mionsi Forest, the ruins surrounding Hukvaldy castle and the foothills of the Beskids. Josef Sudek, born in 1896 in Kolin, was a bookbinder and amateur photographer for several years before studying at the State School of Graphic Arts with Karel Novak. Along with a handful of other young Modernists, he founded the Czech Photographic Society in 1924. While maintaining a successful commercial career, Sudek nurtured a lifelong, Romantic fascination with light and mood. He died at the age of 80 in 1976.

This highly original book explores the working methods and creative philosophy of one of the UK’s greatest landscape photographers. Over a three-year period, Joe Cornish and his co-author Eddie Ephraums, have created a unique documentary record of Joe’s photography in a variety of locations, from the Scottish Highlands to the north Conwall coast, via Northumberland and Joe’s much-loved North Yorkshire. Each location is used to address a particular aspect of the art and craft of landscape photography, through conversations between the authors, images of Cornish at work, plus his own pictures from each location. The pictures show us not one, definitive interpretation of each scene but alternative compositions and the development of photographic ideas, giving revealing insights into the photographer’s creative process. The book also documents Cornish’s gradual transition from a traditional, exclusively film-based way of working to one that now embraces the use of digital compact cameras, digital SLRs and, most recently, a large format digital camera. He describes the opportunities that each of these new tools has opened up, for example he now uses a digital compact both as a sketchbook and for exhibition-quality prints. Full of informative and inspirational images, fascinating insights and professional tricks of the trade, this book will appeal to Joe Cornish’s legions of fans and anyone with an interest in photographing the landscape.
This collection of panoramic images from award-winning photographer Colin Prior offers a unique visual record of Scotland's wild places. The stunning images take as their starting point the solstices of mid-summer and mid-winter, when the sun lies furthest from the celestial equator, and autumnal and vernal equinoxes, when the sun crosses the celestial equator. Each seasonal shift in the position of sunrise and sunset results in an otherworldly transformation of the landscape. Using a special panoramic camera, and often shooting at the magical hours of dusk and dawn, he captures those rare moments when composition, light, and color combine to extraordinary effect.
The stunning and dramatic beauty of California's Central Coast has long been a magnet for artists and photographers, and is emblematic of the school of West Coast photography. Home to photographers Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, and Wynn Bullock, the Central Coast remains a mecca for photographers. In this collection, Martha Casanave has taken a conceptual and imaginative, rather than a literal approach to this iconic location. Martha Casanave: Explorations Along an Imaginary Coastline captures scenes of this striking coastline from a new perspective. Equipped with only a 6 x 4 pinhole camera, Casanave transforms the recognisable into the other-worldly and brings a timeless elegance and drama to her photography never before published.
Book 2 of the german bestselling Master Trooper series now in Englisch Crow has a lot on his plate as the new head of Sector A. Young and inexperienced as he is in his leading role, he still has to prove himself as a capable Alpha. Especially Strike is challenging him for rank. Yet Crow is adamant about asserting his position, because only as Alpha can he finally have what has been out of his reach for so long - Leslie, a doctor and former head of Life Tree’s INBREED program. Unfortunately for him, Leslie herself doesn’t make it any easier. Three years his senior, she still regards him as the young Trooper who qualified for INBREED. In her book, that’s two reasons not to let him into her bed. When Strike catches on to Crow’s weakness and abducts Leslie, both men are out for blood... Leslie is traumatized. In the blink of an eye, her world was turned upside down. She has gone from being a self-confident woman and head of INBREED to being property of a Trooper. Although she likes Crow and feels drawn to him already, she simply cannot forgive him for trying to make her submit only so he can strengthen his position as Alpha and leader. Moreover, there is this secret she keeps... the reason she left Earth. If Crow were to find out, he would certainly cast her aside - a bitter experience Leslie has been through before. No, she’d rather ignore her feelings...
