A note from FRAMES: if you have a forthcoming or recently published book of photography, please let us know. He has had the good fortune to travel widely, and whether he’s taking images in Belgium or Morocco, London or Paris, airports or alleys, it’s not that he sees things differently. Hilariously funny, sometimes rather sad, but invariably interesting, this is a superbly diverting book. Generously illustrated with hundreds of colour images, Cuba: Music and Revolution presents the history of Cuban record cover art, including many examples previously unseen outside the island itself.

Tipping over into photography, dissolving the boundaries between exterior and interior spaces, closed world or open world, forgetting oneself in a suspended time.

Through the play of transparency and the mise en abyme of his images, Harry Gruyaert tells in Between Worlds the illusion of the world. Between them is another window looking to a subway platform on the far side where two nuns talk to a woman and a young boy. There is the story from the observer, the story from the two inside the car (the looks on their faces speak volumes), the story from the four the far distance. Richard Smith (1931-2016) was one of the most original painters of his generation, and one of the most underrated.Over the past century, Cuban music has produced a seemingly endless variety of styles―rumba, mambo, son, salsa―at a dizzyingly fast rate. With a historical gazetteer, chronology of major events, index, bibliography and historical and contemporary maps, this book is an invaluable companion to students or visitors to the island. One of the things that’s fascinating about this collection is the way every image has multiple narrative lines. A picture from New York City in 2020 is again a combination of direct vision, obscured vision, reflection, perhaps even reflections of reflections.

In this book, the intimate perspective and the passage of time reveal the unknown truths about a man, a family and an entire country. These images ask not so much for our emotional response as our participation with a multifaceted narrative that is not contained within any one layer. A Traveller’s History of Cyprus” offers a complete and authoritative history of the island’s past and also touches on the sensitive present-day issues for both sides of the island. As Barbara Rose said of Smith’s major Tate Gallery retrospective in 1975, he was ‘at once in and out of touch with the currents of the mainstream … au courant and aloof at the same time.Clark addresses this strangeness head-on, examining the art of Pissarro, Matisse and others in relation to it. If These Apples Should Fall: Cezanne and the Present looks back on Cezanne from a moment – our own – when such judgments may seem to need justifying. Meet Monsieur Benoit, who appeared suddenly in Paris with a scheme for telegraphing messages across the world (or, at least, across the room) by means of electricity and the telepathic power of snails, and actually raised the money to build this extraordinary machine. Dissolving the boundaries between the exterior and interior, Between Worlds offers just such a sensory immersion. Between Worlds, Gruyaert’s new book, is a deeply wonderful new collection of images taken throughout his career.

Richard Glyn Jones has cast his net wide to gather these accounts of human oddity and eccentricity, and the standard of his writing is high, with Lytton Strachey, Derek Hudson, Christopher Sykes and Ronald Knox among the authors included. A good photo is a photo that says a lot of things about the place and the moment it was taken,” says Gruyaert. Prof David Alan Mellor investigates and explains the Anglo-American cultural contexts that drove Smith’s art, while Alex Massouras’s two themed essays, ‘Young and British’ and ‘From Motion Pictures to Flight’, explore Smith’s originality from fresh perspectives. Renato Cisneros digs into his own family history to understand and demystify the figure of ‘El Gaucho’: the controversial Secretary during the regime of Francisco Morales Bermúdez and, shortly after, the country’s Minister of War. His intuitive and physical relationship to places immerses the spectator in a world that borrows from the cinematic universe and from that of the painter.A penetrating analysis of the work of one of the most influential painters in the history of modern art by one of the world’s most respected art historians. Other images range from New York City to Israel to Belgium to Paris to Tokyo, Istanbul, Madrid, the Dominican Republic, Tunis.
