Sohm, Joseph
Slight mark on front board. This book addresses a single question: how do you photograph democracy? After all, democracy is an 'idea' and not something one can easily wrap one's lens around. But photographing democracy is indeed what Joseph Sohm has done in this epic journey across the 50 states. To capture this country's incredible diversity, Sohm framed his national work as George Seurat might a pointillist painting. With each photograph, an individual dot was applied to his American canvas. Spanning three decades, tens of thousands of images were assembled in what becomes a compelling mosaic. Sohm takes us on an insightful journey down the back roads and byways of the U.S., which ultimately leads to a deeper understanding of who we are as a nation. This is a sweeping portrait of life in the American democracy, a portrait that shows us the United States. With a foreword by legendary travel writer, Paul Theroux and lyrics by two of America's most distinguished songwriters, Alan and Marilyn Bergman, "Visions of America" is a work of historic significance. 301pp.

Gleit, Heidi
This book introduces this fascinating city and its colourful mosaic of inhabitants to readers. A beautifully designed, lavishly illustrated album featuring over 140 full-colour images, this large-format book is a moving journey into the heart of the Israeli capital and the daily life and festivals of its people and pilgrims. Marcelo Bendahan's photographs bring the awesome beauty of the city to life and offer revealing glimpses into various religions and cultures that thrive in Jerusalem. Many of the photographs were ta-ken with a panoramic camera that allowed Bendahan to capture the vigour and diversity of Jerusalem's streets and alleys. The colours are uncommonly rich. The pho-tographs are accompanied by an insightful, informa-tive, and entertaining text that will engage the reader. The book begins by focusing on the religious sites that have attracted pilgrims for centuries and the modern city that has developed around them. The album then introduces readers to the city's diverse population, from dancers and clowns to merchants and models, from boys studying the holy scriptures and arti-sans at work to children at play and pilgrims on parade. 176pp.
