Many of us have heard these three words: Black Panther Party. Some know the Party's history as a movement for the social, political, economic and spiritual upliftment of Black and indigenous people of colour - but to this day, few know the story of the backbone of the Party: the women.
It's estimated that six out of ten Panther Party members were women. While these remarkable women of all ages and diverse backgrounds were regularly making headlines agitating, protesting, and organising, off-stage these same women were building communities and enacting social justice, providing food, housing, education, healthcare, and more. Comrade Sisters is their story.
The book combines photos by Stephen Shames, who at the time was a 20-year-old college student at Berkeley. With the complete trust of the Black Panther Party, Shames took intimate, behind-the-scenes photographs that fully portrayed Party members' lives. This marks his third photo book about the Black Panthers and includes many never before published images.
Ericka Huggins, an early Party member and leader along with Bobby Seale and Huey Newton, has written a moving text, sharing what drew so many women to the Party and focusing on their monumental work on behalf of the most vulnerable citizens. Most importantly, the book includes contributions from over 50 former women members - some well-known, others not - who vividly recall their personal experiences from that time. Other texts include a foreword by Angela Davis and an afterword by Alicia Garza.
All Power to the People.
"I'm incredibly lucky to have an environment where I feel comfortable being myself" - Harry Styles.
Stepping bravely into the cyclone of 21st-century fashions, Harry Styles is more than weathering the storm. Whether he's breaking the internet with his $7.99 frog-eyed yellow bucket hat or a pair of black fishnets, or fronting cult magazine The Beauty Papers, as he did in March 2021, Hazza's sparkle knows no boundaries.
Gucci met Styles in 2014, and there was instant chemistry. According to designer Alessandro Michele, Harry is 'a young Greek God with the attitude of James Dean and a little bit of Mick Jagger' - and that effortless superstardom certainly radiates from the photos in this collection, which document the heart of Harry's wardrobe, both on-stage and off.
Part fashion history lesson, pulling references from the rock and roll greats of the past, and part innovation, Harry's style pays homage to Kurt Cobain and Marc Bolan, Prince and Little Richard, while developing into something authentic and entirely his own. This chic book fizzles with facts about Harry's styling choices, presenting the star's most revered looks alongside pictures that trace the roots of each design. With quotes from key designers, this is the perfect gift for any fan.
Ce livre témoigne de l'incroyable capacité du photographe Jean-Pierre Leloir à immortaliser les interprètes et à capturer des moments francs à l'aéroport, dans les coulisses et dans les loges des plus légendaires salles de jazz et de concert parisiennes: «J'ai adoré les gens que j'ai photographiés, alors Je me suis rendu aussi disponible, mais aussi discret que possible », disait-il. « Je n'ai jamais voulu être paparazzi. Je voulais qu'ils oublient ma présence pour pouvoir saisir ces petits moments inattendus. » La sélection de photographies présentées ici a été soigneusement sélectionnée dans l'immense catalogue de Leloir. Beaucoup d'images n'ont jamais été publiées auparavant et peuvent être facilement cataloguées comme des plans «atypiques», car les musiciens ont été capturés principalement dans des situations spontanées, loin de la fanfare de la scène. Texte en anglais avec une introduction en anglais, français et espagnol.

Multiple Exposures - Allen Jones & Photography explores the numerous ways in which artist Allen Jones has engaged with the possibilities of this medium. Historian Philippe Garner has researched Jones's extensive archive to develop and present the insightful narratives implicit in this remarkable, often surprising selection of images.
Studying at Hornsey School of Art, then at the Royal College of Art till 1961, Jones achieved swift success within a dynamic roster of artists celebrated as 'The New Generation: 1964' at the Whitechapel Gallery, London. Alongside his practice as a painter, sculptor, and printmaker, Jones nurtured an ongoing fascination with photography. This volume - an important addition to the literature on Jones's oeuvre - reveals how he was first drawn as a student to the camera's potential, making his earliest experiments in black and white.
Through the sixty-plus years of Jones's career - using camera and, more recently, iPad, and iPhone - photography has become ever-more integrated within his wider practice as an artist. We observe his incorporation of 'found' photographs within his early collaged works; we discover the photographs he has taken as a visual ledger of all that intrigues him; we see a telling selection of the imagery that he has collected, mostly drawn from vernacular sources, such as post cards, newspaper cuttings, and magazine tear-sheets; we find his playful images of his studio and its juxtapositions; and we follow his investigation of the ways in which his paintings and sculptures can interact and invite fresh readings when transmuted into photographs.
The images in Multiple Exposures, mostly hitherto unpublished, are supported by an introductory text by Philippe Garner and by revelatory chapter introductions and pertinent pull-quotes by Allen Jones. The dynamic design of the book is by the legendary graphic artist David Hillman.
