"Photographer Ren Hang’s affinity with nature and the nude form continues in his latest book Athens Love. Continuing to produce work outside of his native home of China, where he is often censored or in trouble with police who threaten to arrest him, for his latest book Hang trips to Attica and Athens in Greece. While his last book NEW LOVE was shot in New York, here Hang swaps skylines and cityscapes to shoot his friends gazing into glistening lakes, obscured between rocks, swamped by daffodils or amongst cactus and aloe vera plants..."...

"Born in the city of Chang Chun (China), this photographer takes explicit and direct pictures, disregarding taboos. REN HANG’S work is closely linked to eroticism and the emotional and vivid element of the skin. Winning the Third Annual Terna Prize for Contemporary Art in 2010, he has shown and published his work both in China and abroad, and now his second monograph is coming to light. “Athens Love” is a compilation of the pictures he took during his stay in the Greek capital last spring.

"Le monde de Huger Foote est un monde où tout chaloupe. Fureteur, le photographe retient ce qui n’intéresse personne. Il déambule dans divers lieux grevés de traces et de résidus : fruits jetés, traces de pneu dans un cloaque, herbes folles, parpaings, tréteaux, tuyaux etc. Tout cela crée un kiosque étrange que l’artiste réunit dans ses albums d’images. Aux cités impériales l’artiste préfère les zones moins fastes, brillantes ou touristiques. Il aime les moments ou les lieux en creux là où commence ou finit un monde. Pour en suggérer l’éphémère la photographe froisse ou lacère au besoin ses photos..."...

It was a startling sight, and no less unsettling if you knew those feet belonged to the dancer Eiko, whom you had come to watch..."

"With the photos in Huger Foote’s brilliant new book, Now Here Then, the passing—no, the inescapable effects, the ravages—of time is central to the meaning of the book. These thirty-six photos were taken decades ago, initially shot with a sense of serendipity, of letting fate help Foote capture the strongest images possible; then time stepped in, the prints messed-up back then while being edited, tossed into drawers, nearly forgotten, then pulled forth three years ago and carefully turned into the stirring work under review here."

"The British artist and Wes Anderson collaborator Hugo Guinness has a soft spot for animals. He has painted pooches, cats — and at least two bunnies (his daughter’s); designed a rhinoceros doodle for a Coach wallet in 2012; and embarked on a Google safari to sketch exotic toads, serpents and bears, which were compiled into a book released last year ($25, Dashwood Books)..."
