*** THE PIER by Nils Petter Lofstedt ****
This book documents a street art project embarked upon by photographer Nils Petter Löfstedt and Erik Vestman. Having discovered a cavity under a pier in Malmö, Sweden, Löfstedt and Vestman worked for 5 months to convert this anonymous concrete interior into an inviting room.
What they created has been called “Sweden’s most secretive and at the same time widely discussed street art projects.”

We are pleased to announce our next book, RIEN, by portuguese photographer André Cepeda. The book is expected to come out in July 2012. Until the end of may, we are offering a special price for all pre-orders.
Dark alleys, blocks of cement, tired naked bodies, strings that lead to nowhere, abandoned tubes.
Rien, the new André Cepeda book, is an immersive experience.
Page after page we are led into a void where all things seem to have lost their name, creating a restless and suspended time. More than looking at physical spaces, we feel as if in an endless present tense. There is Emptiness, but a desired one.
Cepeda makes the beautiful more white than black large format photographs look spontaneous and free.
A book about the process of photographing, about film. A desire to touch and enlighten all things around us.
Rien is André Cepeda’s second book. “Ontem”, his first book, was published in 2009, to critical and public acclaim.
