This beautiful and remarkable behind-the-scenes study of dancers, musicians and onlookers offers a social and narrative dimension to the everyday life at the legendary Bolshoi Ballet. “Gusov’s photographs are lightning fissures, apertures, openings. They are neat as the bullet marks made in the moving target of time by a master of the craft, and the weird and hopeless dawn that streams through these tightly clustered pinholes is the light of future.” —Andrei Navrozov Sasha Gusov specializes in portraiture, classical music, ballet and dance photography. He moved to England in 1989, where he got a job with printer Roy Snell who, when not working, allowed him access to the dark room. In 1993 his self-commissioned photographic project Images of the Bolshoi Ballet, published by the British Journal of Photography, earned him international recognition. Gusov’s work has since been widely published throughout the world. Photographic books include 25 years in Photography, 2014; Belarus: Terra Incognita, 2010; Royal Parks, 2011; Locusts, 2008; Italian Carousel, 2003 and Shooting Images, 2001.

The colour-photography pioneer Joel Meyerowitz travelled across Spain in 1966 and 1967 taking hundreds of pictures that comprise a remarkable document of 1960s Spain. The time he spent in Spain marked a creative turning point in the photographer’s career, and at this time he was taking photographs both in colour and black and white. From 1972 onwards, he would only photograph in colour. The book brings together some 100 images of this initiatory trip, which are divided into four chapters —State, Street, From the car and Flamenco—, and includes texts by Francesco Zanot and Miguel López-Remiro,as well as an interview between Joel Meyerowitz and Nuria Enguita, the director of Bombas Gens (Valencia), where the photographs will be on show from March 2018 until January 2019. Joel Meyerowitz (New York, 1938) is an award-winning photographer whose work has appeared in over 350 exhibitions worldwide. As an early advocate of colour photography, Meyerowitz was key in changing the attitude toward the use of colour in the medium. His first book, Cape Light, is considered a classic work of colour photography and has sold more than 150,000 copies. He has published 20 other books, including Legacy: The Preservation of Wilderness in New York City Parks (Aperture) and his retrospective book, Taking My Time, (Phaidon).

This book recounts the life and loves of artists and writers, Leonora Carrington, Peggy Guggenheim, Dorothea Tanning, Leonor Fini, Meret Oppenheim, Gala, Luise Straus and Marie-Berthe Aurenche during their years with Max Ernst. Beginning in Cologne at the outbreak of war in 1914 and the eruption of Dada, it describes the birth and heyday of Surrealism in Paris in the 1920s and ends with its demise in New York in the 1940s. The years in between were a whirlwind that shredded the artists dreams and scattered them around the globe from Cologne, London and Paris, to Saigon, Marseille, Lisbon and New York. Their saga contains episodes of searing passion, madness and betrayal when they made great art and lost, found and abandoned one another in the process.

Picasso's Kitchen delves, for the first time, into the relationship between Picasso and cooking. Food and kitchenware are present in many of his still-lifes, such as the tomato plant in the Grands- Augustins studio, the eel stew that his wife Jacqueline used to cook, the main painting he made on Manet's Le dejeuner sur l'herbe... Cuisine is also a recurring topic in his poetry, and many of his sculptures are based on kitchen utensils, such as his famous cubist absinthe glass. This publication addresses food and cuisine in Picasso's work, but also the restaurants that marked his life - such as the famous Le Catalan, near his studio on Grands-Augustins Street, in which Picasso used to eat with his friends during German occupation - as well as the importance of restaurants as meeting points for the avant-garde, from Quatre Gats in Barcelona to Lapin Agile in Montmartre, Paris.

In order to go beyond the rules and the veneration that have characterised the development of photography since its beginnings, it is necessary to transgress, to invent, to play and to flirt with freedom. Some authors, specially in the new generations, have dared to break the rules, without vindications, just out of curiosity, seeking to have and portray fun. Revolving around this idea, Players presents a selection of works by Magnum photographers that have playful approach, either because they play with the medium itself, or because they portray fun and leisure.

This beautiful, clothbound publication presents a selection of portraits by the famous photographer Cecil Beaton (1904-1980), who photographed leading figures of the 20th century, from the Shah of Iran to Mick Jagger; movie stars such as Marlon Brando, Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor; political figures such as Kennedy, Charles de Gaulle and Queen Elizabeth II; fashion icons such as Twiggy and Givenchy and famous artists such as Pablo Picasso, David Hockney and Georgia O’Keefe. Beaton worked for Vogue, where he made his first cover in July 1932, and where he would continue to work until the mid-1950s. He also worked for Harper’s Bazaar and Vanity Fair. He made numerous portraits of Hollywood stars in the 1930s, and was an official photographer for the British Royal Family in 1937. In the early 1950s he photographed the magnificent party held by the eccentric multimillionaire Carlos de Beistegui in his palace in Venice. Later, he progressively drifted from photography to set and clothes design for theatre and cinema.

Andy Warhol (Pittsburgh, 1928) is without a doubt one of the most relevant and best-known artists of the 20th century. This volume, which accompanies the exhibition of the same name in Barcelona, Madrid and Málaga, highlights how Andy Warhol captured the cult of merchandise from industrial inventions of the 19th century. Always attentive to technical and industrial breakthroughs, Warhol used all types of techniques and machinery, from silk-screen printing to video recorders, with production patterns that he himself defined as “pertaining to an assembly line.” This apparently impersonal mechanical art, cynically rejects any intentional spiritual burden. This catalogue brings together a selection of over 250 works by Andy Warhol, which portray the technical and conceptual evolution of underground art in New York, emerging from the start of the second half of the 20th century. It also includes a series of essays written on his work and a selection of portraits of the artist, by photographers Alberto Schommer, Richard Avedon and Robert Mapplethorpe.

Pablo Picasso always maintained a complex and intense relationship with photography and with the photographers in his milieu, something that could be seen when he pretended to be a reporter one summer, when he used his image as an icon, or when he took inspired and playful self-portraits. This book which is also the catalogue of the exhibition of the same name at the Museu Picasso of Barcelona, immerses the reader in the universe of Picasso through photography and brings together images that explore all the facets of a creator who is simultaneously the author, model, witness and viewer of his work and life.

Henri Matisse is universally known for his painting, but he also worked regularly as an engraver between 1900 and his death in 1954. His engraving work encompasses more than eight hundred pieces that comprise a gigantic visual library, offering a complete document about his working process and his way of transforming what he saw into art. This book, published as part of the exhibition Matisse. Grabador [Matisse Engraver] at the Fundación Canal de Madrid, includes 63 of his engravings, in which we can identify the same observation process that the artist followed in his drawings. This is a fascinating work that reveals a different Matisse, one that is more intimate and close, yet each work contains the keys of his universal genius.
