We've continued to carry Miffy lamps because of the stories we hear of smiles, laughter, and gratitude.
Sir. Featuring an essay by Pierre Borhan, an interview with Patrick Kinmonth, and many previously unpublished works from Testino’s archive of thousands, this book traces the evolution of male identity over the past three decades. Costume, tradition, gender play, portraiture, photojournalism, and fashion collide as Testino observes masculinity in all its modern manifestations: through the dandy and the gentleman, the macho and the fey, the world-famous face to the unknown passerby.
The economy of all the Caribbean islands was determined by the transatlantic slave trade from the 15th to 19th centuries. From Cuba to Trinidad, rural island villages were homes to the stalwart African slaves who worked the sugar cane and cotton fields. Antigua, which is situated exactly at the elbow of the Caribbean island arc, is a microcosm of this history. When Margo Davis visited Antigua for the first time in July of 1967, she was struck by the faces of these villagers, and it is here that her passion for portraiture began.
When the Antiguan photographs were made, very little had changed from earlier colonial times. These stunning images have now become iconic. It is for this reason that Nazraeli Press is presenting this exquisite new monograph focusing on the people and culture of African heritage in the New World.
Antigua: Photographs 1967–1973 is an ambitious work, beautifully printed in duotone on matt art paper in an edition of 1000 copies. Margo Davis’s work is in many private collections and the permanent collections of the Brooklyn Museum, New York, the Bibliothèque Nationale de France, the Cantor Center for the Visual Arts at Stanford University and the Sack Photographic Trust destined for San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

Ten years ago, Michael Dweck released The End: Montauk, NY. Hailed as "the ultimate homage to the sun-kissed life," the edition's 5,000 copies sold out in two weeks.
The new, expanded edition includes new essays and 260 photographs (85 unpublished) – and is an idyllic and sensual portrait of the famed shing community. It offers an idealized glimpse into the lives of the beautiful denizens who comprise its subculture and tells a paradisiacal narrative about summer and youth, which blends idealism and documentation to re ect a place and a way of life both fading and being reinvented.
Michael Dweck is an American photographer, lmmaker and visual artist.
His work has been featured in solo exhibitions around the world, and become part of important international art collections. Notable solo exhibitions include Montauk: The End (2004), a paradisiacal and erotic surf narrative set on Long Island; Mermaids (2009), an impressionistic underwater dreamscape populated by storied “river children” in rural Florida; and Habana Libre (2012); an intimate exploration of privileged artists in socialist Cuba, which made him the first living American artist to have a solo exhibition in Cuba. These and other works have also been published in large, limited-edition volumes. Two of his long-form television pieces are part of the permanent lm collection of The Museum of Modern Art in New York.
Marie-Sophie Wilson knew nothing of fashion when she was discovered in the North of France. Yet, she became the laid-back muse to the likes of John Galliano, Mario Testino and Clarence Klingebeil. This shot from Klingebeil's archive has quickly become a favorite at Clic SoHo. Find it HERE.

Marie Talaleff graduated from the reputed ESMOD Fashion design and Creation school in Paris and went on to work for a number of years as a creative designer for different textile companies.
In 2008, she discovered the plasticity of paper, giving her the freedom to move from flat (as in textile) to volume. Paper has since become her favorite material.
She was selected by the Korean Craft and Design Foundation and AAF to go and live in Seoul for a month with the Korean artist, Sim Hwa-sook, who creates from traditional Korean paper called Hanji.
This trip to Asia radically changed her view on paper and on her own work techniques.
Marie Talalaeff creates from paper and her works are unique.
Her subjects are always animals. $1300 each
