Dawoud Bey : Harlem U.S.A. by Dawoud Bey ( Book )
4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In 1979, when African-American photographer Dawoud Bey showed twenty-five photographs at the Studio Museum in Harlem under the heading Harlem U.S.A., the exhibition offered a young artist's vision of a moment in the neighborhood's life. Published here as a complete set for the first time, Dawoud Bey: Harlem U.S.A. also includes five previously unpublished photographs from the same period. Bey's vintage images are given new context in an essay by emerging African-American writer Sharifa Rhodes-Pitts, who undertook her own fascinating study of Harlem in 2011. Bey, who grew up in Queens with family roots in Harlem, has become one of most widely acclaimed portraitists on the contemporary scene. This handsome book, with faithful duotone reproductions, provides a wonderful opportunity to revisit a classic portfolio of images that still resonates in today's culture"--
Jindřich Heisler : surrealism under pressure, 1938-1953 by Jindřich Toman ( Book )
7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Czech poet and photographer Jindrich Heisler (1914-1953) joined the Czech Surrealist Group in 1938, just as Nazi occupation of the country was driving the movement and Czech artists underground. Heisler published his first book of poetry a year later. In his brief and courageous career -- Heisler died suddenly at the age of thirty-eight -- he produced some of the most remarkable assemblage work of the Surrealist movement, including what is arguably the single-most important photobook produced in the 20th century, From the Strongholds of Sleep (1940-41). -- Book jacket

Josef Koudelka by Matthew S Witkovsky ( Book )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This retrospective catalogue features vintage prints as well as recent, unpublished work by internationally acclaimed photographer Josef Koudelka (b. 1938). A leading member of the photo agency Magnum, co-founded by his close friend Henri Cartier-Bresson, Koudelka has been a legend since the publication of his unforgettable eyewitness photographs taken during the invasion of Czechoslovakia by Soviet-led troops in 1968. In addition to Invasion and Exiles, Koudelka's most ambitious project, Gypsies, is featured with the complete set of twenty-two prints first exhibited in 1967. Wilfully independent and reclusive despite his renown, Koudelka's impressive imagery is accompanied here by five essays that provide a thorough understanding and appreciation of this outstanding artist.0Exhibition: The Art Institute of Chicago, USA (7.6.-7.9.2014) / The J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, USA (11.11.2014-29.3.2015) / Fundación Mapfre, Madrid, Spain (9.-11.2015)
