The photographs that make up this first book by renowned photojournalist Jean-Pierre Laffont serve as a powerful and provocative examination of the American dream. For nearly three decades, Laffont traveled the breadth of the United States, a true embodiment of American freedom. Documenting the country in all of its facets - from national crises and unsightly social injustices to heartfelt protest and solidarity, the photographer took full advantage of the access granted to him bythe world’s greatest democracy. He traveled all fifty of the United States to document a broad swath of the country’s fabric, capturing America through some of its most turbulent eras. From the electric chair at Sing Sing to Women’s Jello Wrestling, the Watkins Glen rock festival to the Kent State shooting protest in Washington DC, Laffont was front and centre to history as it unfolded.Never working on assignment, Laffont chased stories of his own volition with a lens that was at once compassionate, humanistic, and unflinching. Taken together, these pages tell the story of the chaotic, often painful, birth of twenty-first-century America - a place where a black president, gay marriage, and women executives have become the new norm. Photographer’s Paradise reminds us of the power of the freedom of speech, as Laffont speaks truth to power through his camera lens.RSVP: media@glitteratiincorporated.com

Book of the Day: Vanity: Photographs by Scott Caan by Howard Nourmand & Scott Caan

Over the past decade, actor Scott Caan has quietly garnered a reputation as an outstanding photographer. This exceptional volume is a celebration of his most recent work.

Shooting with a photojournalist’s eye, Caan captures moments that have a quiet honesty to them and a documentary feel. Caan’s images also have a unique insight into life as a celebrity - such as the book’s cover image; taken from the top of the red carpet at Cannes (where no photographer has ever been allowed) looking back at the hive of paparazzi below.

The title of the book is another subtle nod to his fame. Countering claims that he is simply indulging in “a vanity project”, Caan has reclaimed the word in full force with this exquisite demonstration of his talent. “To me, Vanity was the perfect title. Photography is the one thing I can do where I don t have to answer to anybody. … In a sense, it is my selfish way of saying; ‘these are the photographs that I like.’”

Book of the Day: Henri Matisse: Cut-outs, Drawing With Scissors by Gilles Néret, Xavier-Gilles Néret

Drawing with scissors: The revolutionary late-period work by Matisse

Towards the end of his monumental career as a painter, sculptor, and lithographer, an elderly, sickly Matisse was unable to stand and use a paintbrush for a longer period of time. In this late phase of his life—he was almost 80 years of age—he developed the technique of ‘carving into color’, creating bright, bold paper cut-outs. Though dismissed by some contemporary critics as the folly of a senile old man, these gouaches decoupées (gouache cut-outs) in fact represented a revolution in modern art, a whole new medium that re-imagined the age-old conflict between color and line.

This fresh, standard TASCHEN edition of our original prize-winning XL volume provides a thorough historical context to Matisse’s cut-outs, tracing their roots in his 1930 trip to Tahiti, through to his final years in Nice. It includes many photos of Matisse, some rare color images, by Henri Cartier-Bresson, Brassaï, and the filmmaker Murnau and text from Matisse, Picasso, publisher E. Tériade, the poetsLouis Aragon, Henri Michaux, and Pierre Reverdy, and Matisse’s son-in-law, Georges Duthuit.

In their deceptive simplicity, the cut-outs achieved both a sculptural quality and an early minimalist abstraction which would profoundly influence generations of artists to come. Exuberant, multi-hued, and often grand in scale, these works are true pillars of 20th century art, and as bold and innovative to behold today as they were in Matisse’s lifetime.
