Suburbia mexicana by Alejandro Cartagena( Book )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 102 libraries worldwide
In Suburbia Mexicana, Alejandro Cartagena (born 1977) photographs the homes, rivers, ruins, riches and inhabitants of the suburbs of Monterrey, Mexico. These beautifully quiet color photographs are stark documents of the chaos and destruction that result from scant or misguided urban planning: decentralized cities with limited infrastructures, where the pursuit of immediate financial gain trumps any interest in sustainability; the dried-up riverbeds that attest to water misallocation; perpetual rows of tiny houses slicing directly into the foothills of the surrounding picturesque mountains; and the people who live and survive in these small cities. Cartagena captures both the destruction that rapid urbanization imposes on the landscape and the experience of densely packed housing. This book communicates more than just a local problem, though: this is a visual portrait of neoliberal economic policies, and a clear plea for more responsible development in a rapidly changing world

MP3 : Midwest Photographers Publication Project by Rod Slemmons( Book )
3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 70 libraries worldwide
The second installment of the "Midwest Photographers Publication Project" ("MP3"), also produced in collaboration with the Museum of Contemporary Photography (MoCP), Chicago, presents the work of three emerging artists: Curtis Mann, John Opera, and Stacia Yeapanis. For his series "Modifications", Curtis Mann collects found photographs depicting conflicts in the Middle East and Northern Africa. He then bleaches and scratches the surface of the images, removing information to create new meanings from his source material. John Opera investigates the uncanny in nature. Moving between representation and geometric abstraction, his works reference historical notions of the sublime and landscape as well as modernist photography. Stacia Yeapanis's interest in modes of entertainment and hobbies has led her to explore the simulated-reality computer game "The Sims 2", and the craft of embroidery, as she stitches television screen captures of characters in states of distress

Daniel W. Coburn The Hereditary Estate by Karen Irvine( Book )
2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
The Hereditary Estate' functions as a ten-year retrospective and as a conceptual work of art. Coburn's work and research investigates the family photo album employed as the visual infrastructure for the flawed ideology of the American Dream. Frustrated by the lack of images that document the true and sometimes troubling nature of his own familial history, the photographer set out to create a new archive, a potent supplement to the broken family album that exists in the collection of many families. Using photographs made over the last decade and altered, amateur photographs, he weaves a family narrative that is simultaneously beautiful and terrifying. The careful sequencing of these images creates a powerful psychological dialogue designed to inspire an emotional and visceral response from the viewer. The international distribution of this book completes an essential conceptual component of this work, placing this supplementary album into family collections in countries all over the world
