Andreas Trogisch has scanned with his camera inch by inch and assembled the pieces to one large picture. In the book, the entire stripe is mapped on 44 pages at a scale of 1: 2.27 with a total length of 13.20m. Nothing else. So what?‹ you might ask. White paint on asphalt, what can be seen there? A lot! Sun, wind, rain have acted, the asphalt has become brittle, aircrafts rolled over, and after the closure of the airport skateboards, bicycles and prams. This is a rare and beautiful photobook, one of Stop Fix's favourites.
Featuring her brand new work shot across forty different locations, all inspired by memories of the people of Kumamoto. By capturing the backdrops of these recollections, the experience brings life to memory within the photographer, and as such allows the viewer to feel the budding of memories of their own. Within time, flowing like a river, we find our memories embracing all of us. Through the scenes and places captured within these photographs, one finds this photo collection to be overflowing with refreshing moments — ones that open the doors to our own memory.
Hackney Flowers, Stephen Gill collects flowers, seeds, berries and other objects from various locations around Hackney, presses them in his studio and photographs them alongside his own photographs and found ephemera. Some of the base photographs were also buried in Hackney Wick, and the consequent staining and decay has left its imprint upon the images, stressing the collaboration with place. A parallel series within the book shows members of the Hackney public with floral details imposed upon their body’s. Stop Fix’s favourite photobook on display.

Chris Shaw captured a dark and spectacular vision of the Californian desert during the summer of 2013 while on a residency in Joshua Tree National Park. He took pictures in the early morning using a strong flash and printed at night in a make-shift darkroom in his bathroom, using an enlarger specially shipped from New York. In this bold and striking series of photographs, the joshua trees and various desert cacti are transformed into haunting anthropomorphic figures and dancing icons. The prints themselves bear the marks of the ad-hoc printing process, with bleeding edges, fingerprints, off-kilter frames and Shaw's signature hand-written titles.

This book presents various examples of abstractions created through photography and photographic processes. Exploring the possibilities of the photographic medium, each artist produces abstract results in different ways: some are camera-less experiments with chemicals and photographic paper, while some rely on close-ups, details and fragments of images whether the body, the natural world or urban landscapes. This book is a great example of the post photographic landscape and a good introduction to abstract photography.

Now very rare book by Stephen Gill. Book includes an envelope containing a print which you are encouraged to bury yourself. The book itself has was buried below the site of the current olympic stadium. The photographs in this book were taken in Hackney Wick and later buried there. Not knowing what an image would look like once it was dug up introduced an element of chance and surprise. Maybe a sense of places is forever embedded in these images. Original “Buried” photographs available for purchase please enquire.

Lorenzo Vitturi’s work is often found at the intersection of sculpture and photography and his latest project, Dalston Anatomy, saw him spend time in London’s Ridley Road Market taking pictures, making sculptures and creating collages with materials and objects he found amongst the debris of the marketplace. Vitturi’s process is largely concerned with the creation, consumption and preservation of images. The makeshift sculptures he created mimic the organic and temporary nature of the market, and their documentation is the way in which they endure after diminishing. The book is bound in exquisite Vlisco fabrics in bright patterns that are reminiscent of African markets and accompanied by a poem by Sam Berkson that layers voices from the market to draw on its disjointed and surreal atmosphere. Come and visit our in house book store and wine bar in Haggerston to see this fantastic book!
Yoshinori Mizutani was moved by and became obsessed with the unusual population growth of lime green parakeets in Tokyo. His photographs capture the strange urban landscapes and uncanny feeling created by the parakeets’ presence. This is the first photo book by the up-and-coming Mizutani, who was also selected for the 2014 “FOAM” Talent Call.
