The Guardian and The Observer Reviews Gallery Artist Robert Burley's New Book

The UK Guardian and The Observer review Robert Burley's new book The Disappearance of Darkness: Photography at the End of the Analog Era.

"There have been various valedictory photographic essays about the passing of analogue photography over the past decade, but none quite as extensive as Robert Burley's 10-year project to chronicle the disappearance of the sites where film was produced and developed. "This book is my own march backwards into the future," he writes in the introduction. "It tells the story of an industry that was obliterated by the creative destruction of the digital age."

Gallery Artist Chris Coekin's Book The Altogether Chosen as One of the Best Books of 2012 by Photo-Eye Magazine

Chris Coekin's book The Altogether was chosen by Photo-Eye Magazine as one of the best books of 2012.

"The Altogether is the latest book by Chris Coekin. The photographs were produced in a factory that began manufacturing copper wire in 1834. Unfortunately, the factory recently closed and the entire workforce was made redundant. The Altogether is a multi-layered project that investigates the notions of art, work and struggle. The book comprises three series of images and is accompanied by a seven-inch vinyl record that includes two audio tracks: Days at The Factories and CuSO4 Shuffle."
