Punk culture is nomadic; the punk house is the outpost.The 'punkhouse' may come in any number of forms. Perhaps the most common type is one in which a large number of like-minded people cram into a space meant to house two or three people, resulting in low rent and, thus, leisure time for the residents to pursue their interests. These interests vary from house to house and person to person, but there are clear themes that emerge as we examine this subculture as a whole.Punk Houses are anarchist warehouses, feminist collectives, tree houses, artists' workshops, self-sufficient farms, hobo squats, community centres, basement bike shops, speakeasies and all varieties of communal living spaces. Abby Banks captures the already-weathered face of a 17-year old runaway, the soft hands of a record collector, the mohawked show-goers, the dirty dishes in the sink, the silk screened posters on the wall and the gardens growing up between the cement of city blocks.

While Frankfurt-born Ilse Bing's 1931 Self-Portrait with Leica is an icon of modern photography, her exquisite black-and-white compositions, created mostly during her years in exile in Paris and New York, have not received nearly the attention they deserve. This first-ever monograph of the photographer (1899-1998) dubbed the "Queen of the Leica" is cause for celebration on two counts: Those with an interest in Bing's work now have an authoritative source to consult, and students of the form now have proof that Bing ranks alongside BrassaĂŻ, Man Ray, and Henri Cartier-Bresson in the pantheon of 20th-century avant-garde photography. This book, based largely on unpublished material from Bing's personal archive, combines biography with an in-depth study of her work in its historical context, creating a portrait of the artist as revealing as it is overdue.
