A Brazilian proverb states, “Those who leave will take longing on their journeys.” However, translating saudade with “longing” doesn’t do the term justice. Olaf Heine’s photographs convey impressions that are hard to put into words. Since 2010, the renowned portrait and fashion photographer has captured the soul of Brazil. Presenting the land of Carnival and Copacabana in black-and-white is not as paradoxical as it might first seem. Heine’s photographs are as deeply melancholic as they are sensual. With a keen sense for shapes and textures, he also exemplifies Oscar Niemeyer’s words: “The whole universe is made of curves.” These curves appear in architecture and human bodies, and also permeate the Brazilian lifestyle. From the intensity of its passions to the lightness of its shapes, Olaf Heine portrays a fascinating country in all its diversity and beauty.

For the fiftieth anniversary of James Bond in 2012, two icons came together who jointly epitomize the very essence of British coolness. In Skyfall, Daniel Craig, as agent 007, powered across the screen in an Aston Martin DB5, the very same thrilling six-cylinder that Sean Connery drove in Goldfinger. Meanwhile, Aston Martin has celebrated a milestone birthday. In the century since it was founded by Robert Bamford and Lionel Martin on January 13, 1913, the house has created a portfolio that ranges from the Le Mans–winning DB2 to 2013’s Vanquish. René Staud has now captured Aston Martin’s elegant luxury cars in photographic form. As in his bestselling books on the Mercedes 300 SL and the Porsche 911, Staud transforms automobile photography into a sensual experience and The Aston Martin Book allows readers to absorb the aura of a true British classic.

The bustling gateway to America, New York has always been a city of dramatic excitement—big dreams and constant changes. A legendary photojournalist and former president of Magnum Photos, Thomas Hoepker vividly captures the city’s complex spirit in all its many moods while documenting the most recent fifty-plus years of the city’s history. A long-time resident, Hoepker’s images range from the early 60s through 9/11, and up to the very present including the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

With journalistic zeal and a keen eye for crucial details, he documents a true New York with its diverse inhabitants and the allure of its prominent landmarks and hidden, far-flung corners. His insightful photography conveys a vivid sense of the city’s physical landscape and intricate urban culture.

If you try to explain Michael von Hassel's photographic approach, it sounds paradoxical at first: by representing reality in an alienated way - for example, by lending it radically intense colour - he sharpens our own view of what is real. This hyper-realism works in amazing ways. When the Munich-born photographer captures an empty Oktoberfest tent, a mountain view, or a street scene from a big city in his innovative way, we discover details that might normally escape us. In so doing, von Hassel grants his audience a new perspective on the world and garners permanent place in international exhibitions. Furthermore, von Hassel was honoured as the best contemporary artist at the 2009 Hot Air Fair in Basel, Switzerland, and subsequently attracted an avid group of collectors. Apart from the photographer's distinctive approach, his images also possess a particular quality that explains their popularity: they are simply irresistibly beautiful.

As humans we are programmed to instinctively respond to beauty. It has an indescribable quality that lifts our spirits and opens our hearts. Yet while this intangible essence can be hard to define, it’s nonetheless instantly recognizable. Over the course of his illustrious career, photographer Kenneth Willardt has captured an impressive array of images that epitomize our contemporary concept of beauty. Although varied in their tone and subject matter, these finely structured compositions all possess a timeless elegance that draws us in. Equally at home in both black and white and color images, viewers of Willardt’s photography will be struck by the intimacy that characterizes his work. It will be no surprise, then, to learn that the subjects displayed here are celebrities that fascinate him or models he knows as friends. With this freedom and informality between photographer and models, the images are intensely direct and real.

Mercedes-Benz is a German manufacturer of automobiles, buses, coaches, and trucks. This title traces its origins to Karl Benz's creation of the first petrol-powered car, the Benz Patent Motorwagen, patented in January 1886 and Gottlieb Daimler and engineer Wilhelm Maybach's conversion of a stagecoach by the addition of a petrol engine later that year. Mercedes-Benz is one of the most well-known and established automotive brands in the world, and is also the world's oldest automotive brand still in existence today.
