This collection of remarkable pictures from photographers around the globe will tease your eyes and challenge your perception of things by crossing the boundaries of rationality and reality. Striking compositions, often humorous, dreamlike, or ironic, offer truly stunning visions one would never expect. As much as these images intrigue the senses, they also challenge the mind. By provoking rational conventions and meanings, their works question our vision of reality and attitude towards photography as a media capturing the true instant, which initiate a captivating dialogue with viewers. Manipulated pictures create a surreal, psychedelic world that mixes dreams, utopia, advertising tricks and irony. Impossible photography invites us to look with a fresh, and critical eye at what photographs tell us.

"Within the canon of European photography books it would be difficult to find one more famous, revered and influential as Henri Cartier-Bresson's "The Decisive Moment,"" wrote Jeffrey Ladd in "Time LightBox," in a feature on Steidl's new edition of this ultimate photobook classic. Originally published in 1952, this collection of Cartier-Bresson's best work from his early years was embellished with a collage cover by Henri Matisse. The book has since influenced generations of photographers, while its English title defined the notion of the famous peak in which all elements in the photographic frame accumulate to form the perfect image-not the moment of the height of the action, necessarily, but the formal, visual peak. This new publication-the first and only reprint since the original 1952 edition-is a meticulous facsimile of the original book that launched the artist to international fame, with an additional booklet on the history of "The Decisive Moment" by Centre Pompidou curator Clément Chéroux. Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908-2004) was born in Chantelou-en-Brie, France. He initially studied painting and began photographing in the 1930s. Cartier-Bresson cofounded Magnum in 1947. In the late 1960s he returned to his original passion, drawing. In 2003 Cartier-Bresson established the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson in Paris, one year before his death.

In the new Russia, even dictatorship is a reality show. Professional killers with the souls of artists, would-be theater directors turned Kremlin puppet-masters, suicidal supermodels, Hell's Angels who hallucinate themselves as holy warriors, and oligarch revolutionaries: welcome to the glittering, surreal heart of twenty-first-century Russia. It is a world erupting with new money and new power, changing so fast it breaks all sense of reality, home to a form of dictatorship—far subtler than twentieth-century strains—that is rapidly rising to challenge the West. When British producer Peter Pomerantsev plunges into the booming Russian TV industry, he gains access to every nook and corrupt cranny of the country. He is brought to smoky rooms for meetings with propaganda gurus running the nerve-center of the Russian media machine, and visits Siberian mafia-towns and the salons of the international super-rich in London and the US. As the Putin regime becomes more aggressive, Pomerantsev finds himself drawn further into the system. Dazzling yet piercingly insightful, Nothing Is True and Everything Is Possible is an unforgettable voyage into a country spinning from decadence into madness.

The Realisms of Berenice Abbott provides the first in-depth consideration of the work of photographer Berenice Abbott. Though best known for her 1930s documentary images of New York City, this book examines a broad range of Abbott’s work—including portraits from the 1920s, little known and uncompleted projects from the 1930s, and experimental science photography from the 1950s. It argues that Abbott consistently relied on realism as the theoretical armature for her work, even as her understanding of that term changed over time and in relation to specific historical circumstances. But as Weissman demonstrates, Abbott’s unflinching commitment to "realist" aesthetics led her to develop a critical theory of documentary that recognizes the complexity of representation without excluding or obscuring a connection between art and engagement in the political public sphere. In telling Abbott’s story, The Realisms of Berenice Abbott reveals insights into the politics and social context of documentary production and presents a thoughtful analysis of why documentary remains a compelling artistic strategy today.
