Following the sold-out success of Domestic Vacations (Radius Books, 2009), Homegrown captures Blackmon’s ever-evolving talent for portraying the tension between the harmony and disarray of domestic life. As Seattle Times arts writer Michael Upchurch said of her work, “Visual jokes and puns are plentiful. But so are family mysteries, childhood psychodramas and painterly richness.”
Included in this new volume are 40 works made from 2009-2014, an interview of the artist by Academy Award winning actress Reese Witherspoon, as well as an insightful introduction by the renowned poet Billy Collins.

TIME LightBox presents a special preview of the season’s best photography books and has chosen three Radius Books photographers Michael Light, Julie Blackmon, and Laura Letinsky for their inspired forthcoming monographs. “These photo books, lovingly designed and meticulously edited, are a rare treat in a time when photography is all-too-often relegated to selfies and snapshots, and offer an opportunity to truly indulge in the unfettered beauty of a well-made book.” (more..)
Jonathan Bell of Wallpaper* magazine took some time with Victoria Sambunaris to discuss her recent monograph, Taxonomy of a Landscape, and what led her to this gorgeous body of work.
“The American landscape photographer Victoria Sambunaris has completed her first monograph, Taxonomy of a Landscape. Sambunaris studied at Yale and still teaches there, although her main passion is the regular road trips she takes into the American interior. The monograph brings together many of the images she took in South Texas – a rich natural landscape that is also shifting fast due to the demands of the energy industry – covering over a decade’s worth of shooting.” Keep reading…
Congratulations to Aaron Huey for winning National Gold in Photography at the 2014 Independent Publisher Awards for his sold-out monograph, Mitakuye Oyasin.

About the IPPYs
The “IPPY” Awards were launched in 1996 and are designed to bring increased recognition to titles published by independent authors and publishers. They were established as the first awards program open exclusively to independents. This year’s IPPY competition attracted 3,650 entries in the national categories, 1,150 regional entries and 440 e-book entries. The medalists represented 44 U.S. states plus the District of Columbia, five Canadian provinces, and eight countries overseas.
“Independent publishers are growing in number, and the quality of their work is increasing,” said awards director Jim Barnes. “One element driving the high rate of excellence is participation from university presses. This year, 29 medalists came from university presses and 9 came from museums. Their elevated level of writing, editing, design and production raises the bar and inspires us all.”
Stephen Dupont: Piksa Niugini Portraits & Diaries has been selected as the winner at the 57th Annual New England Book Show in the Illustrated Books category. This project records noted Australian photographer Stephen Dupont’s journey through some of Papua New Guinea’s most important cultural and historical zones. Dupont’s work has earned many awards, including a Robert Capa Gold Medal citation; a Bayeux War Correspondent’s Prize; and first places in the World Press Photo, Pictures of the Year International, the Australian Walkleys, and Leica/CCP Documentary Award.
The New England Book Show is an annual juried show that recognizes the year’s most outstanding work by New England publishers, printers and graphic designers. Winning books are selected for their design, quality of materials, and workmanship.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Photographer Kevin Bubriski has been visually documenting the country and people of Nepal since his first visit in 1975. Sent as a young Peace Corps volunteer to the northwest Karnali Zone, the country’s remotest and most economically depressed region, he spent three years walking the length and breadth of the Karnali, planning and overseeing construction of gravity flow drinking water pipelines. He also photographed the local villagers, producing an extraordinary series of 35mm and large format black-and-white images. For nearly four decades, Bubriski has maintained his close association with Nepal and its people. Both visual anthropology and cultural history, this remarkable body of photographic work documents Nepal’s evolution from a traditional Himalayan kingdom to a rapidly changing, globalized society. Nepal: 1975–2011 also offers an incisive and comprehensive look at the aesthetic evolution of an important contemporary photographer.
With an introductory essay by Charles Ramble, Director of Studies, École Pratique des Hautes Études, Paris, and President of the International Association for Tibetan Studies.
