Book Details:Hardcover: 116 pagesISBN-13: 978-194208454910 x 8 inches$45.00 U.S. Recovered Memory: New York and Paris 1960-1980 is a meditation on time and place: before the internet and 24/7 news; when one could visit the Eiffel Tower without seeing police and automatic weapons, when a ride on the New York subway cost 15 cents, when the smell of fresh-baked baguettes wafted over nearly every Parisian neighborhood, and when the Coney Island parachute ride still thrilled thousands. Van Riper’s striking black and white photographs spanning twenty years, coupled with his eloquent texts, capture the 20th-century romance and grit of New York more than a half century ago, and Paris, some forty years ago. It was a time when the pace of life was slower and somehow less threatening, people talked to each other instead of texting on their iPhones, and you literally had to stop and smell the coffee. Frank Van Riper is an internationally acclaimed documentary and fine art photographer, journalist and author. His photographs are in the permanent collections of the National Portrait Gallery, Washington, DC, the Portland Museum of Art, Portland, Maine, the photography archive of the University of Maryland Baltimore County, and the Tides Institute collection, Eastport Maine, among others. Martin Walker is an internationally renowned journalist and foreign policy scholar, and author of the bestselling ‘Bruno’ series of crime novels set in the Perigord region of France. He is a senior fellow of the Global Business Policy Council, based in Washington, DC. View Details

BOOK INFO Cloth, 11 X 9 In. / 108 Pages / 36 Color ISBN 9780983231608 List Price: $29.95 Alejandro Cartagena photographs the particularities of the suburbs of Monterrey, Mexico, which are relatively new and often hastily built, reflecting a general disregard for planning. Over the years, various governmental policies have resulted in new, decentralized cities with limited infrastructures, where the pursuit of immediate financial gain trumps any interest in sustainability. Cartagena captures both the destruction that rapid urbanization has imposed on the landscape and the phenomenon of densely packed housing. Pictures of dried-up riverbeds attest to the water misallocation and depletion brought about by the construction, and Cartagena depicts perpetual rows of tiny houses slicing directly into the foothills of the picturesque mountains that surround Monterrey. Only the landscape appears capable of limiting their proliferation: the mountains and rivers seem the only forces able of containing the suburban sprawl. Ultimately, Cartagena documents the chaos and destruction that result from scant or misguided urban planning. He lives in downtown Monterrey, and he cares deeply about its land, its people, and its future. Understanding that overdevelopment is not just a local problem, he works hard as an artist to share his photographs as one clear plea for responsible, sustainable development in a rapidly changing world.
