The perfect medium : photography and the occult by Clément Chéroux( Book )

18 editions published in 2005 in English and French and held by 672 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A unique characteristic of photography has always been its ability to record the visible and material world with both truth and accuracy. From the 1860s onward, photography has also been enlisted to provide proof of the immaterial: auras and apparitions; séances and levitations; transfigurations and the spirits of the deceased. The Perfect Medium: Photography and the Occult examines the rich and complex history of photography and the occult, identifying instances when the two have come together, intersected, or overlapped. Most of the photographs included date between 1870 and 1930, the period when the interaction between photography and the occult was at its most prolific, and were culled from numerous public and private collections and archives throughout Europe and North America.-- Metropolitan Museum of Art website
Henri Cartier-Bresson : here and now by Henri Cartier-Bresson( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 497 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Henri Cartier-Bresson's work embraced art, politics, revolution, and war. But more powerful than any of these overarching themes was his evident concern for the human individual at every social level. This lavishly illustrated monograph - published to accompany France's first major retrospective since the photographer's death in 2004 - traces Cartier-Bresson's development as a photographer, activist, journalist, and artist. In addition to some of Cartier-Bresson's best-known photographs, included here are many seldom seen or unpublished images and some rarities in color as well as black-and-white. From his earliest photographs in Paris in the 1920s and Africa in the 1930s, Cartier-Bresson's capacity to conjure coherence and harmony out of a chaotic world appears effortless and innate - a deep-centered attitude rather than a merely learned technique. His observations of the effects of poverty and revolution around the world led directly to his pioneering photojournalism and to his co-founding of Magnum Photos. He became renowned for his penetrating portraits of the most prominent figures of his time, becoming, in the words of his biographer Pierre Assouline, 'the eye of the century"--
Snapshot : painters and photography, Bonnard to Vuillard( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The advent of the Kodak camera in 1888 made photography accessible to amateurs as well as to professionals. Artists were not immune to its allure, and many began experimenting with the camera as a means of capturing images as studies for final works and of observing the world and the people in it. Snapshot investigates seven Post-Impressionist painters and printmakers: Pierre Bonnard, George Hendrik Breitner, Maurice Denis, Henri Evenepoel, Henri Rivière, Félix Vallotton, and Edouard Vuillard. Although celebrated for their works on canvas and paper, these artists also made many personal and informal snapshots. Depicting interiors, city streets, nudes, and portraits, these photographs were kept private and never exhibited. As a result, most have never been published. Juxtaposing personal photographs with the related paintings and prints by these Post-Impressionist artists, Snapshot offers a new perspective on early photography and on the synthesis of painting and photography at the end of the 19th century"--

Magnum manifesto by Clément Chéroux( Book )

11 editions published in 2017 in 3 languages and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this landmark photography publication and accompanying exhibition, Clément Chéroux demonstrates how Magnum Photos owes its pre-eminence to the ability of its photographers to encompass and navigate the points between photography as art object and photography as documentary evidence. A Magnum photograph can be expressive and bear witness at the same time. Magnum Manifesto is organized into three main parts: Part 1 (1947-1968) views the Magnum archive through a humanist lens, focusing on post-war ideals of commonality and utopianism. Part 2 (1969-1989) shows a world fragmenting, with a focus on subcultures, minorities and outsiders. Part 3 (1990-present day) charts the ways in which Magnum photographers have captured - and continue to capture - a world in flux and under threat. Featuring both group and individual projects, the book includes contact sheets, notebooks, magazine spreads and other previously unseen material to accompany the photographs. Complete with extensive texts by Clément Chéroux and photographic historian Clara Bouveresse, Magnum Manifesto is an essential purchase for anyone seeking to understand the very best in photography
Henri Cartier-Bresson by Clément Chéroux( Book )

11 editions published in 2008 in English and German and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Henri Cartier-Bresson's photography came to define the 20th century. This book tells his life story through his images: all the major events from this youth to his death in 2004 are described, contextualized, and analysed in the light of his photographic work. From his early encounters with the Surrealists, his film work, and his experiences in the Second World War, to the development of his own personal aesthetic, the concept of the 'decisive moment', and the foundation of Magnum Photos, his influence on the world has been profound and unforgettable."--Jacket

Walker Evans was one of the most important American photographers of the 20th century.

Autophoto : cars & photography, 1900 to now( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Autophoto explores photography's longstanding and generative relationship to the automobile. Since its invention, the automobile has reshaped our landscape, extended our geographic horizons and radically altered our conception of space and time, influencing the practice of photographers worldwide. The book shows how the car provided photographers with new subject matter and a new way of exploring the world. Capturing formal qualities such as the geometric design of roadways or reflections in a rear view mirror, photographers invite us to look at the world of the automobile in a new way. Autophoto also includes other projects, such as a series of car models that cast a fresh eye on the history of automobile design, created specifically for the Fondation Cartier show by French artist Alain Bublex, plus a comparative history of automobile design and photography, essays by scholars and quotes by participating artists."--

Varda-Cuba by Agnès Varda( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in French and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cet ouvrage est édité à l'occasion de l'exposition ± Varda Cuba? présentée au Centre Pompidou, Paris, du 11 novembre 2015 au 1er février 2016.00En décembre 1962, deux mois seulement après la crise des missiles, Agnès Varda se rend à Cuba. Elle est alors, comme bon nombre d'intellectuels français, fascinée par cette île et son leader charismatique, et souhaite réaliser un film pour comprendre0ce mélange si particulier de socialisme pur, de sensualité et de cha-cha-cha. Afin de conserver sa liberté de mouvement, elle troque la caméra pour l'appareil photo, avec l'idée de filmer ensuite ses photographies réanimées au banc-titre.0Bien que n'ayant pas été conçues comme de la photographie d'art, les clichés de Salut les cubains (1964), présentés pour la première fois dans cet ouvrage, sont d'une qualité exceptionnelle.0
Brancusi, film, photographie : images sans fin by Constantin Brancusi( Book )

8 editions published in 2011 in French and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pour Brancusi, la sculpture n'existe que perçue dans l'espace, transformée par la lumière. Son travail est un processus continu de variations et d'échos. En mettant en évidence ces multiples relations, cette mobilité constante, les images photographiques et filmiques qu'il réalisa dans les années 1920-1930 constituent des documents uniques mais aussi de véritables outils d'analyse et de création. Sous quatre parties, le livre présente plus de 170 photographies et bandes-film. On découvre d'abord la vie de l'atelier - l'artiste, ses modèles et amis comme Man Ray. Viennent ensuite les oeuvres reproduites, seules ou en relation, sous différents points de vue et éclairages. La troisième partie pourrait s'intituler le travail de la reproduction ; elle rassemble des images d'objets industriels et des recherches, à partir d'une même prise de vue, sur les recadrages, les formats et les tirages. La dernière partie est consacrée à des études de matière, de mouvement, et se clôt sur la construction de la Colonne sans fin. Les bandes-film et nombre de photographies sont ici publiées pour la première fois. Trois essais éclairent les relations entre le travail sur l'image et la pratique sculpturale de Brancusi. Ils sont complétés par un inventaire thématique inédit des photographies et une première description des films, restés jusqu'à présent invisibles."--page 4 de la couverture
