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.

There’s a Place in Hell for Me & My Friends. Peter Hugo.

There’s a Place in Hell for Me & My Friends. Peter Hugo.

Photographs by Peter Hugo

Published by oodee, 2012. First edition of 1000 copies.

[Purchase: oodee]

(Publisher’s Overview):

Pieter Hugo’s There’s a Place in Hell for Me & My Friends is a series of close-up portraits of the artist and his friends, all of whom call South Africa home.

Through a digital process of converting colour images to black and white while manipulating the colour channels, Hugo emphasizes the pigment (melanin) in his sitters’ skins so they appear heavily marked by blemishes and sun damage. The resulting portraits are the antithesis of the airbrushed images that determine the canons of beauty in popular culture, and expose the contradictions of racial distinctions based on skin colour.
