The Seventh Dog is a new monograph/photobook by American photographer Danny Lyon. Through text and image—color and b&w photographs, original photo collages, letters and other ephemera (many published here for the first time), and Lyon’s own writings—this book tells the story of Danny Lyon’s personal journey as a photographer.
Disco Night Sept. 11 by Peter Van Agtmael is a chronicle of America’s wars from 2006–2013.
The photographs shift back and forth from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to the USA, unsparingly capturing the violent, ceaseless cost, but also the mystery and the madness, the beauty and absurdity at the core of each conflict. The narrative is complemented by nineteen gatefolds which elaborate on places and individuals. Disco Night Sept. 11 is an expansive yet intimate account of this defining era of history.
