Art and Photograhy Books

In recent months, Select Books has been appointed as the distributor for a number of books on art and photography. It’s a fairly new area for us as far as distribution is concerned, but we’re pleased to have made a start. It’s certainly opened our eyes to the quality of these works:

  • 30th Feb by Chow Chee Yong. Chee Yong is one of only three Singaporeans to have their photographic prints acquired by Japan’s prestigious Kiyosato Museum of Photographic Arts in Yamanashi.
  • Shanghai In .JPG by Jean-Philippe Gauvrit. Jean-Philippe has been photographing cities since 1993, and won an online competition organized by vis-à-vis International Magazine in 2007, with 6 images extracted from the photographs presented in this book.
  • Bus Stopping by Stephen Black. Stephen is a consultant based in Singapore. Bus Stopping is a wonderful book which looks at life in transit, relaxing yet subtly emotional.
  • Something Beautiful by Zhang Jingna. Jingna is a young commercial and fashion photographer with a growing portfolio of work for international advertising agencies and fashion houses. She is also one of the most popular artists on community art site deviantART, using the pseudonym "zemotion".
  • Send Me An Angel by Michael Lee Hong Hwee and Tan Ling Nah. Ling Nah has held several solo exhibitions, and co-ordinated and co-curated exhibitions, and the recipient of several art awards. Through her works, she seeks to reflect and address the conditions of the modern city, particularly the lack of interpersonal intimacy in urban life.
