Leon Borensztein: American Portraits
Nazraeli Press, 2011
Signed book, limited edition of 2,000
96 pages, clothbound, 13 x 11″ with 60 duotone reproductions
Leon Borensztein’s American Portraits brings together ten years of portaits by the photographer. Visiting his subjects at home, Borensztein would set up a generic backdrop behind his sitters and then take a step back to reveal a glimpse into their personal spaces. The resulting collection of photographs is a playful and touching look into the lives of the everyday Americans he encountered.
Suzanne Opton: Soldier / Many Wars
DECODE Books, 2011
Signed book, limited edition of 1,500
104 pages, hardbound, 9.5 x 12″ with 39 four-color reproductions
Portrait photographer Suzanne Opton’s latest monograph Soldier / Many Wars reflects a curiosity about the military at a time of war. Focusing her lens on soldiers who recently returned from their tour of duty in Iraq, her images are both emotionally and politically poignant. “It is not sensationalism I am after. I am after the human being,” writes Opton.
