1 New York: The Refco Collection Of Contemporary Photography - Tuesday 25 April, Friday 5 May & Wednesday 10 May 2006.
Christie's, New York: 2006. First Edition. s Softcover. Very good condition. 
Over the past two decades there have existed two distinct iterations of the Refco Collection, one encompassing work in all media, which was dispersed in the late-1990s, and the current manifestation, which has focused specifically upon the medium of photography in all its possible interpretations. The Refco Collection began with the essential notion, on the part of its instigator Frances Dittmer, that the art on the walls of a corporate offic could be challenging and reflective of the time and ideas in which they are situated.

8 ALEXANDER, CHRISTOPHER JAMES. Julius Shulman's Los Angeles.
Getty Publications, Los Angeles: 2011. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
The American architectural photographer Julius Shulman (1910-2009) is one of the few image makers to have documented, as well as witnessed, nearly an entire century of Los Angeles history. His captivating photographs serve as a visual record of the dramatic evolution of this exciting and diverse metropolis. Shulman's best-known images consist of mid-century views of Modernist domestic interiors, notably the iconic Case Study House #22 of 1960, in which two well-dressed women sit inside the floor-to-ceiling window walls of a Pierre Koenig-designed house that seems to float like a spaceship over the light-spangled urban sprawl beyond. Not as well known but equally powerful are Shulman's images of Union Station and downtown's vintage office buildings, the dynamic Wilshire Boulevard corridor, the region's eclectic coffee shops and movie theaters, the sweeping canopy of the Century Plaza Hotel, the diverse fabric of L.A.'s residential neighborhoods, and the panoramic vistas of the city of the future under construction. The author selected sixty images from the Getty Research Institute's Shulman archive for this elegant book, for which he also wrote an informative essay on the photographer's exceptional capacity to exposing the diverse built environment of Los Angeles.

20 ASHMAN, STUART. Manuel Carrillo: Mi Querido Mxico.
FrescoBooks / SF Design: 2014. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
The photographic output of Manuel Carrillo is not as well-known as the work of Manuel Alvarez Bravo and Edward Weston, his contemporaries in Mexico and the United States respectively, but his stature as a master of traditional (now classical) photography is unquestionable. His beautifully crafted gelatin silver prints are testimony to a master image maker who approaches his subject with awe-inspiring wonder. In Mi Querido Mxico Manuel Carrillo shows his love for his native country, its people, landscape, churches, architecture, and even its animals. He shows the strength, beauty, and dignity of the Mexican people. In his work we see the cycle of life and convincing expressions covering a broad spectrum of the emotions and feelings that make up the human condition. This publication will undoubtedly expand the knowledge and appreciation of Manuel Carrillo's work and his beloved Mexico. 12.75 x 10.5 in., 60 pages, 25 halftones. Stuart Ashman is the president and CEO of the Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA). He is the former curator and director for the New Mexico Museum of Art and the former secretary of cultural affairs for the state of New Mexico. .
