Micamera turns 16
Celebrating with the community
POP-UP STORE with TIS BOOKS, THE ICE PLANT, 10 x 10 PHOTOBOOKS, THE GOULD COLLECTION
Tim Carpenter, Jenia Fridlyand, Mike Slack, Russet Lederman, Andrea Modica
It’s that time of the year: our birthday again!
As we are turning 16 years old, we celebrate inviting publishers and artists for an all-American pop-up store: TIS BOOKS with Tim Carpenter, who, beside being a successful artist himself, co-founded the imprint alongside Carl Wooley and Nelson Chan. Tim will present in Milan Jenia Fridlyand’s Entrance to our Valley. The NY-based publisher released the trade edition of the highly successful artist book that Fridlyand realized in 2017, when it was also shortlisted for the Aperture/Paris Photo Award. And it seems the new edition has been even more successful, as the book is marked as sold out already (we managed to save some copies for the pop-up store!) Both Tim and Jenia will be at Micamera.
THE ICE PLANT is a publisher based in Los Angeles, producing artist books and other printed matter. Founded by Tricia Gabriel in 2006 and named after her grandfather’s ice factory, The Ice Plant’s publishing activity started with a title by Jason Fulford and includes publications by Tamara Shopsin and Ed Panar (who have all been exhibited at our gallery!). The Ice Plant is now guided by Tricia together with Mike Slack. Mike Slack will be in Milan, launching the new publications: Walking in Place 1: New Orleans, and Walking in Place 2: Berlin by Mike Slack, and Christmas Day, Bucks Pond Road by the above mentioned Tim Carpenter – a much-awaited title after his first successful and out-of-print monograph Local Objects (also released by The Ice Plant). Seems like the recent titles all have a walking dimension, as revealed by Mike Slack’s titles and as also Tim’s recent book is shot in a single winter morning walk.
Last but not least, Russet Lederman will also be in Milan. Russet is a writer, editor, and photobook collector who lives in New York City. She teaches art writing at the School of Visual Arts, co-edits The Gould Collection – publishing books that unite photographers with writers, and bringing to Milan the reprint edition of Saul Leiter/Paul Auster It Don’t Mean A Thing and the recent Jamie Hawkesworth/Joan Didion On Keeping A Notebook – and is a co-founder of 10×10 Photobooks – a non-profit organization with the mission to foster engagement with the global photobook community who published, among their ‘books-on-books’ anthologies, the much-acclaimed How We See: Photobooks by Women.
With a special mention at the Aperture/Paris Photo Award, and all the 100 books on show at the MEP in Paris, it is the book of the moment – released 2018 and already in its third edition (and including ‘our’ Ilaria Turba’s JEST, and La Donna Barbuta by Alessandra Spranzi – two artists that have also been exhibited in our gallery)
