One of the most controversial and exciting contact points for photography is New York based art book publishing house powerHouse Books. Who else would publish Andy Warhol next to celebrity dogs, publicly urinating women next to Magnum photographers, the sexlife of Mexican transgender and the Lagerfeld diet, etc etc etc... You do end up longing for the day that the publishers complete programme shall be neatly nestled on your bookshelf.
Next to publishers Daniel Power and Craig Cohen, Miss Sara Rosen also rules the book imperium from her throne. She steers several activities as the marketing and PR frontwoman of the on the go publishers. We have attached her current book recommendations for all the GoSee readers. For those of you that like the selection and that want to find out more the current issue of BOOKLET awaits with an interview with the powerlady on her work, life and photography.
Drug dealing, murder, robbery, car theft crimes happen every day. You hear about it on the news, read about it in the papers. Someone was shot in New York and no one knows why. Nine out of 10 crimes in the city are accounted for by gangs that are the main reason for the high crimanality in New York. Serbian photographer Boogie emigrated to the USA and at the end of the nineties with Its All Good, provided a moving chronicle of the ghetto life and its inhabitants. In disturbing pictures he shows us a world which shall probably remain closed forever for the most. The book is published with Miss Rosen Edition, a powerHouse division which particulary caters for contemporary urban lives and lifestyles.
