The images contained in photographer John Schabel’s recently released book, Passengers, published by Twin Palms, documents the in-between time of airplane travel and the state of mind of the traveler–a mixture of excitement, trust, wonder and reflection.
Schabel describes the series as a meditation on the strangers framed in little windows, waiting to take flight. “Suspended between departure and arrival, we sit 30,000 feet high, sealed in a metal tube, gliding over geography with a low hum,” he says.
The International Center of Photography in New York City will host a book signing event for Passengers on Friday, February 8, from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m.

With great patience and care, Gary Briechle photographs using large-format cameras and the wet-plate collodion process, which forces an intimacy between the photographer and subject. He says of his work: “The tension between the demands of the process and the demands of a moment make each successful image more of a gift given, not so much a photograph taken.” Twin Palms Publishers recently released the book Gary Briechle. The book’s gorgeous prints float in the middle of black pages bringing back that feeling of surprise one gets while watching photographs come to life in a developing tray.

The images in Twin Palms Publishers new book, The Black Eye, continues Michal Chelbin’s exploration of the world of athletes and performers.
Breathless, sweaty, and fatigued, the athletes are worn out after a hard training session or fight. During a typical photo shoot, Chelbin makes the athletes change poses and locations several times; sometimes she takes her subjects past the point of exhaustion to help free them from self-conscious expression.
