The Unseen Eye: Photographs from the Unconscious
By W. M. Hunt
HardCover. Pages: 320 Publisher: Thames & Hudson This haunting collection of photographs reflects the surreal vision of the New York collector WM Hunt. The photographs have a common theme the gaze of the subject is averted. the face obscured or the eyes firmly closed and range from Andr etons self-portrait with eyes closed to Ruth Snyder in the electric chair in 1928 and from Weegees multi-imaged portrait of Andy Warhol in sunglasses to Robert Mapplethorpes photographs of the artist Alice Neel with her eyes closed. The pictures present a catalogue of anti-portraiture. characterized at first glance by what its subject conceal. not by what the camera reveals. The continuous plate section. oadly ordered as a portrait of humanity from birth to death. has a commentary by Hunt running through it. in which he offers his own intense and perceptive responses to the images he has gath...

The Memory of Time: Contemporary Photographs at the National Gallery of Art
By Sarah Greenough
From a shared fascination with photographys past, including early photographic techniques, to creating works which give form to the literal passage of time and the fleeting evidence of cultural change, many artists are creating works that evocatively engage with how the past has been shaped by photography. Organized thematically, this volume explores the work of twenty-six contemporary artists who investigate the complex and resonant relationship of photography to time, memory and history. While many photographs seem to depict a singular moment in time, each image contains multiple layers, including the instant of exposure, the moment of viewing, and the lapse in between.

Making Faces!: Poke your face through the pictures - Star in your own Works of Art
By Jacky Bahbout
Based on the idea of the seaside photo booth, Making Faces! is a fill-in art pad that's hands on and great fun. There are 32 pictures to complete. At the beginning of the book, a page explains how the book works and suggests ideas for colouring in the pages. Children complete a picture, then tear off the sheet and poke their face through the hole. They turn themselves into kings and queens wearing crowns, astronauts wearing bubble helmets, and flowers with pretty petals. They colour in floppy ears to become rabbits, shaggy manes to become lions and pointy horns to become dinosaurs. The pictures can be personalized with messages to give to family and friends.

Louis Stettner: Penn Station, New York
By Louis Stettner
Louis Stettner is one of the last living members of the avant-garde New York School of Photography. His Penn Station series of the late 1950s represents some of his most important work, gathered here in a single form for the first time. The series is less a portrait of now-vanished building, though the station makes itself felt by its shadowy spaces and glowing surfaces, than a study of people at once in transit and in suspension. For Stettner, 'it was a spacious and dramatic arena where people in the act of travelling went through a mixture of excitement, a silent patience for waiting, and an honest fatigue', and he found the project exhilarating. However, when completed, the photographs weren't deemed 'newsworthy' enough for publication. But with time and distance their significance has deepened, and this body of work has become recognized as a major work of art.

Derek Boshier: Rethink/Re-entry
By Paul Gorman
Taking as his subject icons of consumerism and American popular culture, Derek Boshier made his name in the 1960s as one of the key proponents of British Pop Art, along with contemporaries David Hockney, Peter Blake and Pauline Boty. Since then, his output has been exceptionally diverse, including collage, book design, set design and illustration, as well as photography, film and sculpture. Rethink/Re-entry traces Boshier's formidable career. Beginning with his rise to prominence in the early 1960s, it then follows his abandonment of painting in the 1970s and his experimentation with new modes of expression, such as collage and illustration, as exemplified by his iconic sleeve design for David Bowie's album Lodgerand his drawings for Clash 2nd Songbook. In this decade he formed the Artists Union with Bridget Riley and Robin Klassnik and produced politically inspired banner, poster and flyer designs, as well as curating public events such as the Smith/Novak Event. The chapters on the 1980s detail Boshiers return to painting. This move coincided with his departure to Texas to teach, where he adopted the iconic figure of the Texan cowboy as the subject for his 'Cowboy' series as well as producing a prolific number of landscape paintings. The 1990s saw him relocate to Los Angeles, where he encountered a culture and iconography that provided rich source material for his later works.

The tone was set by his first major assignment for Vogue in January 1970. a fashion shoot in the context of dramatic environmental backdrops in Turkey. Throughout the decade-the last to witness lavish spending by magazines-Bailey appeared to use fashion sittings as a means to fulfill his childhood ambition to be the great
