X93;At the age of 22 I was sent to Saigon to cover the war as a photojournalist. I was too late for Indochina, and too early for Vietnam. Muggers robbed me on my arrival, and I lived in a small hotel by the river. I drove towards the front in an old Citroën. I think I was happy. I returned some years later. It was for another war, and the famous reporters had left. The streets were full of GIs and their girlfriends, of blind bomb victims and so many children returning to school. It was the end of an epoch, people would hand flowers to the soldiers. Everybody wanted to leave, and it was cheap to stay at luxury hotels. To forget my heartache, I got drunk and walked the streets all day. The city was very generous and welcomed me with open arms, so I lost sense of time. I stayed for months in this city that no longer exists. The last time I went there I was at peace with things, and at the War Remnants Museum I visited my friends who had died on the battlefield. Today, the city has another name and has fully entered globalization.” Raymond Depardon.

La Calle brings together more than thirty years of photography from the streets of Mexico by Alex Webb, spanning 1975 to 2007. Whether in black and white or color, Webb's richly layered and complex compositions touch on multiple genres. As Geoff Dyer writes, "Wherever he goes, Webb always ends up in a Bermuda-shaped triangle where the distinctions between photojournalism, documentary, and art blur and disappear." Webb's ability to distill gesture, light, and cultural tensions into single, beguiling frames results in evocative images that convey a sense of mystery, irony, and humor. Following an initial trip in the mid-1970s, Webb returned frequently to Mexico, working intensely on the U.S.-Mexico border and into southern Mexico throughout the 1980s and '90s, inspired by what poet Octavio Paz calls "Mexicanism--delight in decorations, carelessness and pomp, negligence, passion, and reserve." La Calle presents a commemoration of the Mexican street as a sociopolitical bellwether--albeit one that has undergone significant transformation since Webb's first trips to the country. Newly commissioned pieces from noted Mexican and Mexican American authors lend further insight into the roles the streets have played for generations: part arterial network, part historical palimpsest, and part absurdist theater of the everyday.

Aperture is pleased to present the elegantly updated and refreshed Henri Cartier-Bresson edition of the Aperture Masters of Photography Series. With an introduction by notable curator Clément Chéroux, this edition includes new, image-by-image commentary and a chronology of this influential and iconic artist's life. Initially presented as the History of Photography Series in 1976, the first volume of the Masters of Photography Series featured Cartier-Bresson and was edited by legendary French publisher Robert Delpire, who cofounded the series with Aperture's own Michael Hoffman. In this redesigned and expanded version of the classic Aperture book, we have kept the majority of the selection of images from the original series which Cartier-Bresson himself created with Delpire, encapsulating the spontaneity and intuition for which this legendary photographer is so celebrated.

Lee Miller photographed innumerable women during her career, first as a fashion photographer and then as a journalist during the Second World War, documenting the social consequences of the conflict, particularly the impact of the war on women across Europe. Her work as a war photographer is perhaps that for which she is best remembered - in fact she was among the 20th century's most important photographers on the subject. Published to coincide with an exhibition at the Imperial War Museum, Lee Miller: A Woman's War tells the story beyond the battlefields of the Second World War by way of Miller's extraordinary photographs of the women whose lives were affected. Introductions by Hilary Roberts and Antony Penrose, Lee Miller's son, precede Miller's work, which is divided into chronological chapters. Miller's photographs, many previously unpublished, are accompanied by extended captions that place the images within the context of women's roles within the landscape of war.

Regarding the real

Regarding the real Author Des O'Rawe

Regarding the real develops an original approach to documentary film, focusing on its aesthetic relations to visual arts such as animation, assemblage, photography, painting and architecture. Throughout, the book considers the work of figures whose preferred film language is associative and fragmentary, and for whom the documentary is an endlessly open form; an unstable expressive phenomenon that cannot help but interrogate its own narratives and intentions. Combining close analysis with cultural history, the book re-assesses the influence of the modern arts in subverting structures of realism typically associated with the documentary. In the course of its discussion, it charts a fascinating path that leads from Len Lye to Hiroshi Teshigahara, and includes along the way figures such as Joseph Cornell, Johan van der Keuken, William Klein, Jean-Luc Godard, Jonas Mekas and Raymond Depardon.

The Fondation Cartier pour lart contemporain, in conjunction with the Institut des Hautes Études Scientifiques (IHÉS) and in partnership with UNESCO, is holding the exhibition Mathematical, Even Fire Is Governed By Numbers with one purpose in mind: to let mathematics and mathematicians speak out by giving them the opportunity to brainstorm with major artists from the world of contemporary art. By taking it out of the environment in which it is usually articulated and taught, the exhibition seeks to combine the aesthetic, scientific and educational aspects of mathematics into one unique experience. Six mathematicians have engaged in mutual exchanges with the guest artists: Sir Michael Atiyah (Fields Medal, 1966, and Abel Prize, 2004), Alain Connes (Fields Medal, 1982), Nicole El Karoui, Mikhail Gromov (Abel Prize, 2009), Cédric Villani (Fields Medal, 2010) and Don Zagier (Cole Prize, 1987). Accompanying these mathematicians are four artists: Raymond Depardon, Cai Guo-Qiang, David Lynch and Hiroshi Sugimoto. Together, they collaborate on a series of projects: movies, sound pieces and in situ installations. A combination of written texts, questionnaires and portraits, the catalogue also illustrates the diversity of mathematical thought as expressed by the scientists as well as the artists and emphasizes the importance of creativity in this field. A large part of the book is also devoted to the visual interpretations of mathematics as conveyed through the works of the artists participating in the exhibition.

When it comes to foreign visitors or artists, North Korea must be the most restrictive country in the world. Nevertheless, Magnum photographer Carl De Keyzer managed to cross the entire country in 42 days, divided into three journeys. In his latest book, Magnum photographer Carl De Keyzer points his lens at North Korea, officially the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, the last communist state in the world from an ideological, political and cultural perspective. De Keyzer is one of very few photographers who got almost-unlimited access to the country. He photographed more than 200 different locations, many of which had never been captured on camera before. The 250 photos that form his 'Grand Tour' - taken on marches, at the shooting range, in the subway and in family homes - are a testament to this country's uniqueness.

The infinite variety of the human body is fascinating: it is amazing and magic to see how different women are' David Lynch

The crumbling grandeur of Budapest, in luscious photographs from the duo behind The Ruins of Detroit Between 2014 and 2016, French photographers Yves Marchand (born 1981) and Romain Meffre (born 1987) visited 400 of the more than 4,000 internal courtyards in Budapest. Their large number and variety of styles incorporating different facets of classicism and modernity make them a remarkable architectural phenomenon—a charming second city within the city. Marchand and Meffre systematically documented these courtyards, producing a typological series that describes this particular form of collective housing and reflects the city’s tumultuous history, its changing political regimes and economy. Budapest Courtyardsallows us to delight in the crumbling grandeur of the courtyards, and observe the developments and personal strategies of adaptation which they evidence. “In line with their work on Detroit and Gunkanjima Island, Marchand and Meffre have managed to navigate two extremes at the intimate heart of the Hungarian capital to best superimpose the Budapests of today and the last century, producing an extensive series that offers an untarnished view of this unique heritage.” —H�l�ne Bienvenu
