The starting point for this book is Evelyn Hofer's 'Dublin: A Portrait', which features an in-depth essay by V.S. Pritchett and photos by Hofer, and enjoyed great popularity upon its original publication in 1967. 'Dublin: A Portrait' is an example of Hofer's perhaps most important body of work, her city portraits: books that present comprehensive prose texts by renowned authors alongside her self-contained visual essays with their own narratives. 'Dublin: A Portrait' was the last book published in this renowned series. The newly conceived 'Dublin' focuses on the photos Hofer took on behalf of the publisher Harper & Row in 1965 and 1966. In 'Dublin' Hofer repeatedly turned her camera to sights of the city, but mainly to the people who constituted its essence. She made numerous portraits?be they of writers and public figures or unknown people in the streets. Her portraits give evidence of an intense, respectful engagement with her subjects, who participate as equal partners in the process of photographing.

From Venice to the world, this special book recounts the prolific and original manufacture of Venini, the glass art company founded 100 years ago in Murano, Venice, by the visionary genius of Paolo Venini and Giacomo Cappellin. Over the course of a century, Venini has pursued the goal of innovation in keeping with tradition: the brand has transformed the ancient art of glassmaking by “intersecting” it with the modern visions of artists and designers.

Black Masculinities explores the broad spectrum and diversity of Black masculinities through the medium of contemporary photography. Seen through the lenses of 22 Black (or) People of Color (BPoC) from around the world, the stereotypic entanglement of Black identity and masculinity is deconstructed and charged with a new set of values. Embedded in a long history of slavery, racism and oppression, the topos of Black masculinity continues to be subtly represented as aggressive, hypersexual and violent to this day. This richly illustrated book breaks down and visualizes the common mechanisms of representation in visual culture through carefully edited images and a textual contextualization. It acts as an introductory index and platform for BPoC photographers, who have been underrepresented at all levels of art production since the beginnings of photography, and makes their work visible. For all of us. FEATURED PHOTOGRAPHERS: Kemka Ajoku, Kwaku Alston, Namafu Amutse, Eric Asamoah, Nuits Balnéaires, Arielle Bobb-Willis, Braylen Dion, Kofi Duah, Yannis Davy Guibinga, Jabari Jacobs, Kelvin Konadu, Jude Lartey, Naomi Mukadi, Maganga Mwagogo, Lakin Ogunbanwo, Ruby Okoro, Rogers Ouma, Micha Serraf, Ngadi Smart, Isaac West, Jozef Wright, Ussi'n Yala.
