The first oneman show of color photographs presented at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the museums first publication of color photography, William Egglestons Guide was greeted with division and passion. Bound in a textured cover inset with a photograph of a tricycle and stamped with yearbookstyle gold lettering, the Guide contained 48 images edited down from 375 shot between 1969 and 1971 and displayed a deceptively casual, actually superrefined look at the surrounding world: people, landscapes, and odd little moments in and around Egglestons hometown of Memphis. For this edition of the book, which includes an essay by John Szarkowski, MoMA has made new color separations from the original 35mm slides, so that the color is freshly responsive to the photographers intentions.

Thats right: women in trees. Vintage photographs discovered on flea market excursions alerted collector Jochen Raiss to this phenomenon, which was remarkably popular between the 1920s and 1950s yet never made into a bookuntil now. These photographs, compiled by Raiss over 25 years, feature young women at dizzying heights, often smiling into the camera as if they were in love.

In 83 photographs, Frank looked beneath the surface of American life to reveal a people plagued by racism, illserved by their politicians. and rendered numb by a rapidly expanding culture of consumption.

And it was not just Franks subject mattercars, jukeboxes, and even the road itselfthat redefined the icons of America it was also his seemingly intuitive, immediate, offkilter style, as well as his method of brilliantly linking his photographs together thematically, conceptually, formally and linguistically, that made The Americans so innovative.

In 2008, Bruce Davidson, who had already photographed New York and Paris, began exploring Los Angeles with a focus on its exotic plant life. The arid climate, normally hostile to life, allows for an exceptional botanical diversity in L.A. County that reaches from the surrounding foothills and mountain wilderness to the Pacific Ocean, and Davidson quickly became a Los Angeles convert.Traffic, wealth, poverty, violence and other urban phenomena give way to valiant plant life where ivy thrives on the underside of the 405 and Glendale Freeway interchanges, and a tree in the foothills regenerates itself after a wildfire has parched its bark, he writes. Without its plant life and human respect for it, L.A. would be a vast desert void. Nature of Los Angeles 20082013 depicts the city in black and white, presenting its beauty and banality as emblematic of urban existence in general.
