New Photo books from Formento + FormentoNow on sale @ Superfine DC"36" The book36 “The captivating tableaus exude a sense of tension, melancholy, and a quiet unease.

Artwork of the monthIt's Red wrapped in plastic" by Ole Marius Joergensen
Ole Marius Jorgensen’s latest series is a direct acknowledgment to the influences that have endured since the artist was a young boy. These series are constructs of childhood memories, from family and friends to directors and artists who have inspired him, and are now represented subtly – or prominently – in his works.
Intertwined within in each work is a soft ode to American cinema demonstrated by the influence of Hitchcock and the gentle work of artist Edward Hopper, which are a constant hum in the ear of the artist who is enamored with mid century American landscapes.
The book “The Red Couch”
Another early influence in Ole’s early career was the book “The Red Couch: A Portrait of America.” by Kevin Clarke. "Its red wrapped in plastic" is Ole’s homage to the wonderful series of photos, with a characteristic mysterious and dark twist.

Tennis Fan by Stephan WurthStephan Wurth Book signing @ Paris Photo
Grand Palais, Paris Damiani booth, SE15 Friday, November 8, 17.00
Tennis Fan, by German-born Stephan Würth, illustrates the photographer’s love of tennis over the last 10 years. In black-and-white images, the book captures Stephan’s life as a tennis fan, traveling to tennis tournaments, captivated by anything at all relating to the sport. A departure from his previous Damiani monographs Ikinga (2016) and Ghost Town (2011), Tennis Fan chronicles Würth’s passionate, near spiritual love of the sport. The photographs approach an almost ascetic devotion at times, in stark images of courts entirely absent of players. In other photos, crowds are shot in ecstatic mania over the impossible speed of the competitors. And, of course, there are images of tennis icons such as Roger Federer, head bowed as he leaves the court, trailed by smiling admirers.
