Tucker, Toba; Swenzell, Rina; Bush, Alfred L.
166pp.Toba Tucker's expressive portraits honouring Pueblo artists were made over a two-and-a-half year sojourn in the Southwest. These photographs form a record for history and art at the end of the twentieth century and portray Tucker's interest in the individuals and families who pass their artistic traditions from one generation to the next. The portraits reflect the sense of belonging that she so evidently found among the people who welcomed her into their homes, and they attest to her abiding respect and deep appreciation for the native traditions that continue to carry the Pueblo spirit.

Thirkell, Fred; Scullion, Bob
This award-winning biography by respected postcard historians Fred Thirkell and Bob Scullion pays tribute to photographer Frank Gowen, one of British Columbia's greatest artistic eyes. The book focuses on the life and selected works of Frank Gowen, whose images and name will always be synonymous with the photographic history of Greater Vancouver. Gowen came to Vancouver during the First World War and established himself as "the Stanley Park photographer". Although he travelled throughout British Columbia, many of his finest images are from the parks, streets, and historic sites of the Lower Mainland. Gowen's Greater Vancouver extended from White Rock to the Sunshine Coast, as he explored the playgrounds, edifices, and landmarks of a vibrant West Coast community. 176pp.

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.
