"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 Published here as a complete set for the first time, Dawoud Bey: Harlem U.S.A. also includes five previously unpublished photographs from the same period.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.

Josef Koudelka : nationality doubtful by Matthew S Witkovsky( Book )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 236 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This retrospective catalogue features vintage prints as well as recent, unpublished work by internationally acclaimed photographer Josef Koudelka (b. 1938).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.

Moholy-Nagy : future present( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The pioneering artist László Moholy-Nagy (1894-1946) worked across a range of art forms including painting, sculpture, photography, graphic design, film, advertising, and theater. This publication, which offers a fresh and extensive examination of his output, accompanies the first major American survey of Moholy's oeuvre in nearly a half century and represents the most extensive English-language book on the artist in thirty years. The catalogue reproduces a vast selection of Moholy's early paintings and photograms, his whimsical photomontages--all of which are reproduced together here for the first time--and late works in Plexiglas. Distinguished scholars offer new insights into his materials and working methods; the relation among writing, administration, and art making in his practice; and his influence on contemporary art. Particular emphasis is given to Moholy's American years and his leadership of the Chicago Bauhaus as well as his reception as a painter"--
Jindřich Heisler : surrealism under pressure, 1938-1953 by Jindřich Toman( Book )

8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 192 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
Sarah Charlesworth : stills by Sarah Charlesworth( Book )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This concise yet breathtaking book is the first publication of Sarah Charlesworth's (1947-2013) photographic series collectively entitled Stills. Charlesworth made a name for herself as a member of the New York-based Pictures Generation artists when, in 1980, she produced this series of 14 large-scale photographs. Like her previous work, the images were appropriated from newspapers, which Charlesworth re-photographed. The images that comprise Stills hauntingly depict people falling or jumping from buildings, the suspended moment further dramatized by the photographs' scale: Charlesworth's prints measure over six feet tall. Seven of the 14 photographs were exhibited in 1980 at the apartment of the artist's dealer, but the other half was not printed until 2012, when she created a unique artist's proof edition from her original negatives for the Art Institute of Chicago. Until now, the full series has never before been published or exhibited together. Following an essay by Matthew S. Witkovsky, this landmark publication presents Stills in its entirety for the first time"--

Invisible man : Gordon Parks and Ralph Ellison in Harlem by Gordon Parks( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"By the mid-1940s, Gordon Parks was a successful photographer and Ralph Ellison began work on his acclaimed novel Invisible Man (1952). It is relatively unknown, however, that the two men were friends and that their common vision of racial injustice inspired collaboration on two important projects, in 1948 and 1952. Parks and Ellison first joined forces on an essay titled “Harlem Is Nowhere” for '48: The Magazine of the Year. Conceived while Ellison was already writing Invisible Man, this illustrated essay was centered on Harlem's Lafargue Mental Hygiene Clinic - the first non-segregated psychiatric clinic in New York City - as a case study for the social and economic conditions of the neighborhood. He chose Parks to create the accompanying photographs and during the winter months of 1948, the two roamed the streets of Harlem. In 1952 they worked together again on "A Man Becomes Invisible" for the August 25 issue of Life magazine, which promoted Ellison's newly released novel. This is the first publication on Parks' and Ellison's collaboration on these two projects, one of which was lost while the other was published only in reduced form. The catalogue provides an in-depth look at the artists' shared vision of black life in America, with Harlem as its nerve center. Book published to coincide with an exhibition of the same name originating at The Art Institute of Chicago, 21 May to 28 August 2016." -- from artist's website

Alphabet by Vítězslav Nezval( Book )

6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1926 the Czech dancer Milca Mayerová choreographed the alphabet as a photo-ballet. Each move in the dance is made to the visual counterpoint of Karel Teige's typographic music. Teige was a constructivist and a surrealist, a poet, collagist, photographer, typographer and architectural theorist, and his 1926 photomontage designs for the alphabet are a uniquely elegant and witty invention, and one of the enduring masterpieces of Czech modernism

Christopher Williams : the production line of happiness by Christopher Williams( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Chronologically examining the nature of his art within the context of mass media and photojournalism, this handsome volume charts the thirty-year career of the artist and photographer Christopher Williams (b. 1956). Featuring 100 color illustrations, the book also includes a trio of essays by authors Mark Godfrey, Roxana Marcoci, and Matthew S. Witkovsky that demonstrate how Williams, with high craft and a critical eye, deliberately engages yet reinterprets the conventions of photojournalism, picture archives, and commercial imagery through uncanny mimicry. Committed to the history of photography as a medium of art and intellectual inquiry, Williams's current series tackles the interplay of photography and cinema, upending viewer expectations and the role of spectacle"--
