Opened in September 2005, Dashwood Books is New York City’s only independent bookstore devoted entirely to photography. Located at 33 Bond Street (between Bowery and Lafayette Street in NoHo) Dashwood has become a Mecca for artists, collectors and art directors as well as a valued source for fashion, advertising, film and anybody interested in photography and design.
Our main specialty is in contemporary photography; importing books that have no or very limited distribution in the United States including limited press runs from Japan, Germany and The Netherlands; artists self-published books, signed books and a carefully curated selection of collectible post-war titles. We build collections for museums, educational institutions and many of our regular customers.
Dashwood regularly organizes signings with established artists: Past events have included Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Jim Goldberg, Paul Graham, Juergen Teller, Ari Marcopoulos, Taryn Simon, Roe Ethridge, Miyako Ishiuchi, Eugene Richards, Collier Schorr and Wolfgang Tillmans.
In 2008 Dashwood began publishing our own titles with the limited edition The Chance is Higher by Ari Marcopoulos. Our publishing program grows every year – most recently we produced a major collaboration with The Mott Collection on punk and sexuality entitled Showboat: Punk/Sex/Bodies. For 2017 we have two major monographs planned, with Jamie Hawkesworth and Nobuyoshi Araki.
Dashwood is open Tuesday to Saturday from noon until 8pm and Sunday from noon until 7pm and on Mondays by appointment only.
