Dan Martensen's Photographs from the American Southwest is a body of work made between 2001 and 2011. In 2001Dan began taking road trips. Drawn to its vast lonely landscape, the raw conditions of both the environment and the life, and the beautiful decay of the desert, he immediately fell under the spell of the Southwest United States. During these years Dan began spending time documenting everything he saw as he passed through the landscape from West Texas to the California desert. The road tells the story, as the photographs in this series are evidence of the state of the country as seen by the lens of a voyeur passing through. Shuttered doors on main street, Jesus Christ billboards, foreclosures, big box stores, gas guzzling cars, and the reality of the American dream, all preserved in time by the dry desert air. All of which, forgotten places, their beauty unnoticed if not for an interested passerby.

The visual history of the American West calls to mind iconic artworks and nostalgia for the past. "Art of the American Frontier" presents more than 300 artworks and artefacts from 1830 to 1930, showcasing the premier collections of the Buffalo Bill Center of the West. The complicated history of westward expansion is presented through the iconography of the frontier, spanning Plains Indian materials, government survey photographs, and paintings by early artist-explorers. In the twentieth century, a growing romance with the West is evident in the theatricals of Buffalo Bill Cody and his Wild West show, with its blend of popular culture and history that inspired numerous artists. The dialogue between the historical West and the nostalgia for it can be seen in highlights including Timothy O'Sullivan's (1840-1882) government survey photographs, Frederic Remington's (1861-1909) rare Impressionist landscape studies, and charming wax sculptures by Charles Russell (1864-1926). Complete with three essays and ten brief expositions on a range of artistic, cultural and historical topics, this lushly illustrated catalogue provides a comprehensive overview of one hundred years of art from the American West.

An extraordinary collection of mostly unseen photographs of the Beatles during the making of Help!, published to coincide with the fiftieth anniversary of the release of the Beatles’ second motion picture, Help!, this almost entirely unpublished collection of photographs marks a pivotal turning point in the band’s history, as they evolved from much - loved musicians into the most important group of all time. The Beatles’ first movie filmed in color, Help! is a madcap adventure featuring cinematography and film sequences widely considered to be hugely influential to the modern performance - style music videos of today. Specialist set photographer Emilio Lari was invited by director Richard Lester to shoot stills of the production at Twickenham Studios and document behind the scenes larking about as the band relaxed in their hotel between takes. With an introduction by Lester and intimate, never before seen images, The Beatles: Help! provides new and fascinating insights into the band that changed the history of music and the world.
