Ten Convenient Stores, by Harlan Erskine (MFA 2009 Photography, Video, and Related Media): Erskine’s book is one of several small, photo-conceptual books included in “Ed Ruscha: Books & Co.,” an exhibition at the Madison Avenue Gagosian Gallery. In the spirit of Ruscha’s artist books, Erskine’s book expands the notion of permissible subjects, artistic approaches, and methods. To view sample layouts of the book or purchase a copy, click here.
From Above and Below, by Sharon Harper (MFA 1997 Photography and Related Media): Harper’s first monograph, From Above and Below, features 10 years of photography and video stills exploring the skies and the intersection of technology and perception. Harper uses her camera as a tool to record information that the eye cannot easily process. Kate Greenberg (MFA 2010 Photography, Video, and Related Media), who does PR work for artists, helped promote and launch From Above and Below and organized related events, like Harper’s talk last month at International Center of Photography.
