Inverted Odysseys by Shelley Rice (Editor), Lynn Gumpert (Editor), Grey Art Gallery, Study cen. Paperback - 384 pages (November 1999) MIT Press. from book description "Claude Cahun, Maya Deren, and Cindy Sherman were born in different countries, in different generations--Cahun in France in 1894, Deren in Russia in 1917, and Sherman in the United States in 1954. Yet they share a deeply theatrical obsession that shatters any notion of a unified self. All three try out identities from different social classes and geographic environments, extend their temporal range into the past and future, and transform themselves into heroes and villains, mythological creatures, and sex goddesses. ...".

Uta Barth In Between Places by Uta Barth (Photographer), Sheryl Conkelton, Russell Ferguson, Timothy Martin. "Barth's work draws its strength from its blurring of the familiar and strange, bringing the viewer to a liminal space between the two. It is in this space that Barth begins her investigation into the very nature of perception, where the epistemological importance of such formal qualities as lighting and composition becomes astoundingly evident."

Sugimoto Portraits by Tracey Bashkoff, Nancy Spector, Thomas Kellein, Carol Armstrong. Hardcovers (November 2000) From Amazon "Sugimoto: Portraits is the definitive discussion to date of the thought-provoking contemporary photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto. ...Sugimoto accepted a commission from the Guggenheim to create a series of life-size black-and-white portraits of waxwork figures. His latest method of working enables him to take pictures of people who existed long before the invention of the camera...Seventy-five of Sugimoto's waxwork portraits are reproduced here in richly textured duotones. ...The many-layered conceptual questions related to "the archaeology of time" that his works inspire are explored in several essays, but the most successful chapter is a lively interview with Sugimoto himself. He tells how he photographed a tableau based on Leonardo da Vinci's Last Supper that he discovered with delight in a small Japanese town; he is fascinated by the ironies of a Japanese man photographing an icon of Western art exhibited in Japan, fabricated in wax by Mexican workers using a European tradition. --John Stevenson

Rineke Dijkstra by Rineke Dijkstra, Jessica Morgan, Katy Siegel, Jill Medvedow. Hardcover (June 2001) Cantz. From Library Journal "Through portraiture, Dijkstra examines adolescence and our nostalgia for the emotions attached to it as the keystone of contemporary experience. With influences as diverse as August Sander and Diane Arbus, Dijkstra's color portraits of youth on the beach, at school, or in the storage closet of a dance club resound with the awkwardness of the subjects' acute self-awareness of budding personality. The simple beauty of this Dutch artist's vision is matched on every level by its profundity. A meaty and stylish essay by critic Katy Siegel as well as an interview with the artist by curator Jessica Morgan accompany the spare, pristine reproductions. Also Photoworks in Progress : Constructing Identity by Rineke Dijkstra, Paul Seawright.

Parisian Views by Shelley Rice. From the book description, " In Parisian Views, Shelley Rice explores not only the literal connections between photography and the transformation of Paris but also the metaphorical ones. For like Haussmann and Napoleon III, the photographers forged a new visual image of the city. As they constructed their "views" of Paris, they imposed order on the architecture, vistas, and street life of a city-in-progress perceived from above and below, from the skies and the sewers, from the marketplace and the windows of passing trains. "

Sam Taylor-Wood: Third Party by Sam Taylor-Wood (Photographer), Martin Hentschel (Editor). Hardcover - 148 pages (June 2000) Cantz. "Edited by Martin Hentschel. With a conversation between the artist and Michael O'Pray. Sam Taylor-Wood, nominated for the prestigious Turner prize last year, is regarded as one of the most important contemporary women artists. She first created a stir with her video work Atlantic at the 1995 Venice Biennale; since then, her photographic series Five Revolutionary Seconds has received widespread international acclaim. Like her previous works, her newest video project, Third Party, is about the tensions and erotic entanglements arising between persons in a closed environment. This publication, in addition to some very recent photographic works, documents Third Party, which she realized with professional actors and the British rock star Marianne Faithful. Also included is a conversation between the artist and Michael O'Pray. "

Lost Lhasa : Heinrich Harrer's Tibet by Heinrich Harrer (Photographer), Galen Rowell (Introduction). Paperback - 224 pages Reprint edition (September 1997) Harry N Abrams (Pap). "In the 1940s, Austrian mountain climber Heinrich Harrer escaped from a British internment camp in India and walked across the Himalayas. He limped into Lhasa two years later, and spent five years there as an honorary Tibetan. He kept diaries, bartered for an old Leica camera, and took thousands of pictures. Then in 1950 the Chinese invaded Tibet and Harrer fled. Seven Years in Tibet tells that story, but Harrer wanted to do more to raise international awareness. The result is Lost Lhasa, a collection of hundreds of previously unpublished intimate photographs of the Lhasa that used to be. With an explanatory text written in the same unpretentious prose that made Seven Years so popular, this paean to the Lhasa Harrer knew is beautiful and irreplaceable. "
