Now Here Then by Huger Foote featured in Salon Litteraire

Monday March 7, 2016

By Jean-Paul Gavard-Perret

"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..."

Japanese Performer Eiko Otake featured in the Ny Times

Wednesday March 2, 2016

By Brian Seibert  

"At 9 a.m. on Monday, if you had peeked through the storefront window of Dashwood Books on Bond Street in Manhattan, you would have seen a body on the floor, sleeping or possibly dead. Slowly, out of tattered Japanese robes emerged whitened feet, gnarled and aged and terribly exposed.
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..."

By Robert Dunn

"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)..."

Now Here Then by Huger Foote nominated by Swedish Newspaper: Helsingborgs Dagblad as one of the best photo books of the year

"7. "Now here then". Huger Foote. Förlag: Dashwood Books.En personlig resa som spänner över lång tid. Bilderna är ofta dammiga och skadade som om de glömts i en kartong i väntan på att monteras i album. Det är inte viktigt för Foote att prata högt, hans språk är mer introvert, och han talar med en dämpad och subtil närvaro. Det som vid första betraktelsen kan upplevas som ytligt eller svårtillgängligt ger vid en närmre granskning en djup inblick i Footes liv och upplevelser. Ett känsligt tyst bildspråk som i dag nästan känns exotiskt. Och som en programförklaring i....

Landscapes by Lele Saveri and Now Here Then by Huger Foote selected by Miwa Susuda for Photo-eye Blog - The 10 best books of 2015

Tuesday December 8, 2015

by Miwa Susuda 

About Landscapes by Lele Saveri: "Putting together a nude photography book is not an easy task. That is because it can easily become a one-dimensional or conventional book of self indulgent, shameful work because of lack of objective judgment. Just showing bodies being sexy and pretty is boring. Saveri’s Landscape is nothing like that. It employs a female body’s sculptural or structural composition in various color effects that look tasteful, experimental, playful and absolutely contemporary. This is because Saveri doesn’t compromise on anything less, and extensively discusses the editing and design ideas with Brian Lamotte and David Strettell. Saveri’s Landscape is...

Now Here Then by Huger Foote nominated as one of the best Photo Books of the year by Photobookstore Magazine

By Robert Dunn

"A bunch of old prints, mostly from the 1980s, almost all in color, brilliantly edited into a moving, beautiful book. Foote’s previous work,My Friend from Memphis, was candy-coated Eggleston; Now Here Then is original, unique, profound. Striking photos made better by the whims of careless storage and indifferent time."
