Acclaimed home-grown photographer Jodi
Bieber has created an open-ended essay which is a celebration and a portrait of life in Soweto today.
The importance of Soweto in the collective consciousness is hard to overstate. It registers as a place born of resistance, perhaps even embodying the South African struggle for freedom.
But the birth of Kwaito is attributed to Soweto too. And beyond the grand narratives, there is, and always was, a proliferation of dancing, art and fashion in this place defined by its energy and cosmopolitan nature. Labelling and unlabelling, claiming and discarding, Sowetans have created Soweto anew - a phenomenon that is celebrated in this photographic publication which contemplates daily lived realities, where here, as elsewhere, South Africans are continually reinventing themselves and their urban space.
J Jodi Bieber’s instinctive wandering throughout
Soweto, and her astonishing yet careful study of
the people, the place and the time, offers us an
opportunity to reflect on the mystery of this
Soweto can be purchased through all leading
bookstores in South Africa and through
Amazon.com and Amazon UK from June 2010

In this simple and insightful project, Jones presents a collection of cast-off photographs from the Farm Security Administration project as a lens through which to look at an encounter between socially committed documentary photography and the ideological and bureaucratic forces of the state, looking at one depression from the perspective of another. The book presents those photos “killed” by FSA director Roy Stryker, a poetic term for his editorial process of marking those negatives that he deemed unfit for developing with a hole punch, which appear in this book as matte-black voids in the surface of the glossy, black-and-white photos. Jones frames Stryker’s intervention as an act that opens a space for reconsideration of the individual photographs and the FSA project as a whole, speculating on the ideological, aesthetic, and political motivations and implications, a compelling investigation that sits alongside the strange beauty of the images themselves.Printed Matter | William Jones | Rejected | photobook |
by Alec Soth, Lester B. Morrison
Created over four years (2006-10), Alec Soth’s newest book represents a significant departure from his three previous Steidl publications. Entitled Broken Manual, Soth investigates the places in which people retreat to escape civilization. Soth photographs monks, survivalist, hermits and runaways, but this isn’t a conventional documentary book on life “off the grid.” Instead, working with the writer Lester B. Morrison, the authors have created an underground instruction manual for those looking to escape their lives.
It is common for artists to follow up the publication of their books with ‘Special Editions.’ But in the case of Broken Manual, this edition is being presented first. Made in an edition of 300, Soth calls this the ‘Ideal Edition’ of Broken Manual. Each copy of this edition is housed inside of another, one-of-a-kind book. These signed and numbered ‘shell’ books are unique and cut by hand. Inside the shell, there is also a small booklet entitled ‘Liberation Billfold Manifest’ and an 8x10” print signed and numbered by Alec Soth and Lester B. Morrison.Alec Soth | Steidlville | Steidl | Lester B. Morrison | 2010 | Broken Manual | photobook |
