Peep Show by Sean Maung.

Photographs by Sean Maung

Published by Alldayeveryday. Edition of 30, 2013.

[Purchase: sold out]

Peep Show is a really cool book by NYC-based photographer Sean Maung. He photographed area around Hell’s Kitchen (34th to 42nd street between 8th and 9th avenue). While it is a popular tourist destination, the neighbourhood still has a lot of peep shows. The book reflects the atmosphere of peep show culture and brings back “old New York”. It is also beautifully printed.

Ciociaria
 is the first book by American photographer Douglas Stockdale. The project documents Doug’s travels around Italian region known as Ciociaria. Through his images he observes people, places and discovers similarities and contradictions with his home in South California. “This region remains an allusive mystery to me and reveals many hints of a complex and multi-layered culture that elicits familiar memories of home”. It is a beautifully printed photobook.
