Nick Waplington’s fifth book features documentary images from his recent travels around the world. Aiming to reflect the honest aspirations of young people whose dreams have become stylized by the mass media, the photographer travelled from Sao Paulo, Montevideo and Buenos Aires to Cuba, Easter Island and finally Australia. Capturing the transitional existence of everyday life through a fusion of photography, writing and collected imagery, this work openly identifies the idiosyncrasies and contradictions of the West and confronts the modern stereotypes of living in the shadow of First World capitalism.

A worldwide survey of youth culture, Nick Waplington’s fourth book is an expose of the underground existence of young clubbers in four cities – London, New York, Los Angeles and Tokyo. Comprising a series of one-on-one portraits juxtaposed with city landscapes, the subterranean world of drugs, music and conter-culture comes alive.

Molly Nesbit shows how American pragmatism has informed art theory from Meyer Schapiro to T.J. Clark and Linda Nochlin First published in 2013 and quickly going out of print, Molly Nesbit’s The Pragmatism in the History of Art traces the questions that modern art history and theory has used to make sense of the changes overtaking both art and life. Opening with a consideration of pragmatism’s origins in the thought of Charles Sanders Pierce, William James and John Dewey, the book examines the overlaps and disparities between art and philosophy across several generations of art historians, crossing back and forth over the Atlantic. A genealogy emerges through case studies on the work of Schapiro, Henri Focillon, Alexander Dorner, George Kubler, Robert Herbert, T.J. Clark and Linda Nochlin. The philosophy of Michel Foucault and Gilles Deleuze and the films of Chris Marker and Jean-Luc Godard also show distinctly pragmatic effects. Artists discussed include Vincent van Gogh, Isamu Noguchi, Lawrence Weiner and Gordon Matta-Clark.

Alberto Diaz Gutierrez–better known as Alberto Korda–is internationally recognized as the master of revolutionary Cuban photography. His most famous image is his powerful 1960 portrait of Che Guevara, “Heroic Guerrilla,” which has since become the most reproduced image in the history of photography–though Korda never received any royalties from its reproduction, because he made the photograph for the Cuban newspaper, Revolucion. It is less well known that, prior to the 1959 Revolution, Korda was considered the “Avedon of Cuba,” a progressive fashion photographer whose portraits of leading Cuban models, such as Norka, graced the covers of fashion magazines around the world. Likewise, his work of the 1970s and 80s, in which he explored underwater photography and also returned to fashion, has been largely neglected.

Alberto Korda: A Revolutionary Lens covers every aspect of Korda’s extraordinary output, paying particular attention to his work in fashion, Cuban society and the Revolution. It also includes his extensive documentation of Castro and Che. All prints have been produced under the supervision of Jose A. Figueroa, Korda’s photographic assistant throughout the 1960s and 70s.

Fug You is Ed Sanders’s unapologetic and often hilarious account of eight key years of “total assault on the culture,” to quote his novelist friend William S. Burroughs.Fug You traces the flowering years of New York’s downtown bohemia in the sixties, starting with the marketing problems presented by publishing Fuck You / A Magazine of the Arts, as it faced the aboveground’s scrutiny, and leading to Sanders’s arrest after a raid on his Peace Eye Bookstore. The memoir also traces the career of the Fugs–formed in 1964 by Sanders and his neighbor, the legendary Tuli Kupferberg (called “the world’s oldest living hippie” by Allen Ginsberg)–as Sanders strives to find a home for this famous postmodern, innovative anarcho-folk-rock band in the world of record labels.
