Fifty contemporary, cutting-edge photo-graphers open our eyes to the magical artificiality embraced by fashion photography today: chronicling the very processes of fashion, fashion photography is like fashion itself - it celebrates the immediate, the frivolous and the ephemeral. The striking images in this book playfully flirt with superficiality as readily as they take on the more established aesthetic conventions of art photography. Ingrained with paradox and contradiction fashion photography mirrors the moods and desires of the moment. And more: self-referential as it is by nature, it is able to appeal not only to the eye, but also to the mind, questioning the very limits of desire, meaning and representation. Frivolously fabulous fashion at its best.

Noor is an Arabic word that means "light". Only a year and a half ago, at a critical juncture for photojournalism, a highly talented, extremely motivated, and very creative group of international photographers decided to join together with "light" in their collective mind.
[…] The goal of the photo agency Noor is to produce, publish, and exhibit long term visual projects on topics of human concerns to a broad international audience while maintaining the dignity of the subjects.

Publisher's Description

Martin Parr is the subject and guest-editor of Witness Number 3, the successful new series published by JGS, Inc and distributed by Nazraeli Press. For his contribution to the series - in which one artist is selected for each volume to present their own work as well as work by other artists - Parr unleashes his scorching humor in the series, 'Art World,' photographs made at art gallery and museum openings which reveal more about the art world than some may be comfortable with. This highly entertaining body of work is tempered by the somewhat gentler look at Sri Lanka, made in collaboration with Susie Parr, called 'Little England.' Together, Martin Parr's photographs and Susie Parr's text create a verbal and visual snapshop of Nuwara Eliya, a hill town lying some 6,000 feet above sea level in the heart of Sri Lanka. Parr rounds out his volume of Witness with a section called 'Three Ways to Make a Book,' which documents how photographers Rob Hornstra, Mark Neville, and Bart Sorgedrager were able to self-publish and distribute their own books; a presentation of portfolios by Japanes photographers Keizo Kitajama, Kohei Yoshiyuki, and OSamu Kanemura; and an interview with Parr conducted by Gerry Badger.

PRIVATE n.43 (Winter 2008-09)

Other side India

Whenever people talk about ‘Indian photography’ it obviously leads to a debate and discussion about how appropriate it is to term it as ‘Indian photography’ rather than ‘photography in India’.The question is: to what extent has photography in India been Indianized?
[…] The contributing photographers of this issue have addressed the complex nature of the time and space evolving around the formation of an identity through works that have crucially explored the issues of marginalization and dislocation.
