Looking at Atget by Peter Barberie( Book )

12 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 729 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Renowned for his alluring and provocative photographs of the monuments, interiors, streets, and people of Paris and its environs, Eugène Atget (1857-1927) carefully recorded the details of his subjects for a range of clients, including artists, designers, and libraries. Although not well known in his lifetime, Atget's influential work is now in the collections of almost all of the world's major museums. This book, replete with exquisite reproductions of 110 Atget photographs--including a number of previously unpublished images--features selections from the Philadelphia Museum of Art's magnificent holdings, comprised largely of works from the collection of the celebrated American gallery owner Julien Levy. Peter Barberie explores the earliest and most compelling accounts of Atget's photography and describes the efforts undertaken by Levy and by the American photographer Berenice Abbott--each with a different perspective on Atget's work--to promote his legacy in the United States. By analyzing how Atget organized the albums he used in his workroom and sold to his institutional clients, Barberie also offers fresh insights into the photographer's working methods and purposes. Conservation scientists Beth A. Price and Ken Sutherland discuss their findings about the processes and materials used by Atget and by Abbott, who printed from Atget's negatives after acquiring the contents of his studio in 1928"--Jacket
Paul Strand : master of modern photography by Paul Strand( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through his amazing variety of innovative images, photographer Paul Strand (1890-1976) played a crucial role in establishing the medium's significance as a modern art form. Celebrating the recent acquisition of the core print collection of the Paul Strand Archive by the Philadelphia Museum of Art, this stunning book comprehensively reassesses the artist's career in light of current scholarship and critical debates about his work. Featuring more than 250 plates, the catalogue includes many of Strand's iconic early photos such as 'Wall Street' and 'Blind Woman' alongside lesser-known master prints from all phases of his career. Discussing the artist's prolific career, from his emergence in Alfred Stieglitz's circle in New York in the early part of the century to his years spent working abroad in Mexico, France, Italy and Africa, Peter Barberie positions Strand as a remarkably independent modernist whose priorities shifted at several points and were often counter to prevailing trends. Amanda N. Bock focuses on the years 1930-50, when Strand thoroughly explored the role of politics in modern art and relentlessly sought to identify the greater purposes of photography and filmmaking. The edited transcript from a roundtable discussion among key scholars touches upon many aspects of Strand's various projects from the 1930s to the 1960s
Dreaming in black and white : photography at the Julien Levy Gallery by Philadelphia Museum of Art( Book )

14 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 511 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Julien Levy (1906-1981) was one of the most influential proponents of photography and Surrealism during the second quarter of the twentieth century. In his gallery, which operated from 1931 to 1949, Levy hosted the first New York exhibition devoted to Surrealism and presented early solo exhibitions of many photographers now considered iconic in their field." "This handsome book is published to commemorate the centenary of Levy's birth and to celebrate the Philadelphia Museum of Art's major acquisition of more then 2,500 photographs from his collection. With some 300 illustrations, including many unfamiliar works by well-known artists, the catalogue presents a survey of this collection, long hidden from public view."--Jacket
Charles Marville : photographer of Paris by Sarah Kennel( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Charles Marville (1813-1879) is widely acknowledged as one of the most talented photographers of the nineteenth century. Accompanying a major retrospective exhibition at the National Gallery of Art in honor of Marville's bicentennial, Charles Marville: Photographer of Paris surveys the artist's entire career. This beautiful book, which begins with the city scenes and architectural views Marville made throughout France and Germany in the 1850s, also explores his portraits and landscapes s before turning to his photographs of Paris made both before and after the city's dramatic modernization in the 1850s and 1860s. Commissioned to record the city in transition, Marville created one of the earliest and most powerful photographic series documenting urban transformation on a grand scale. Despite the importance of his work, Marville has long been an enigma in the history of photography, in part because many of the documents about his life were thought to have been lost in a fire that destroyed Paris's city hall in 1871. Based on meticulous research, this volume reveals many new insights into Marville's personal and professional biography, including the central fact that he was born Charles-François Bossu. He shed this name (which means hunchback) and adopted the pseudonym Marville when he began his career as an illustrator in the 1830s. With five essays by respected scholars, this book offers the first comprehensive examination of Marville's life and career and delivers the much-awaited public recognition his photographs so richly deserve"--Provided by publisher
More than one : photographs in sequence by Joel Smith( Book )

9 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The essays in More than One examine sequentiality and serialism in the practice of photography from the medium's earliest years to the present. Contributors explore nuances of syntax and sense raised by works including photographic albums, books, thematic portfolios, journalistic photo features, and documentations of performance art." "Fully illustrated essays discuss, among other topics, the little-known volume Beyond This Point (1929), a collaborative experiment by American photographer Francis Bruguiere and London radio-drama writer Lance Sieveking; the evolving relationships among "straight" photographic aesthetics, sequence, and sexual self-definition in the early work of Minor White; and an important performance work by Ana Mendieta. The title essay surveys the social conditions and expressive motives that have given rise to serial and sequential forms throughout the history of photography."--Jacket
Zoe Strauss, 10 years by Zoe Strauss( Book )

9 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With little formal training as a photographer or artist, Zoe Strauss (b. 1970) founded the Philadelphia Public Art Project in 1995 with the aim of exhibiting art in nontraditional venues. Five years later, she began using photography as the most direct means of representing her chosen subjects. Zoe Strauss: 10 Years offers a midcareer assessment of Strauss's achievement to date, and the first full account of her celebrated ten-year project, beginning in 2001, to exhibit her photographs under an elevated section of Interstate 95 in Philadelphia. Strauss's troubling and sometimes touching images focus primarily on American working-class experience, to convey what she calls "an epic narrative that reflects the beauty and struggle of everyday life." Generously illustrated, this book includes nearly 200 photographs--135 of them published here for the first time--along with images that document her I-95 exhibitions. With essays by Peter Barberie and Sally Stein, plus a text by the artist herself, a bibliography, and a chronology, this is the most definitive publication to date about this important young artist."--Publisher's website
Paul Strand by Paul Strand( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Paul Strand (born in New York, 1890; died in Orgeval, France, 1976) is one of photography's great modernist masters. Alongside Edward Weston and Alfred Stieglitz, he pushed the artistic potential of the medium to new heights. Strand's long career began as a student of Lewis Hine, and by 1917, he was already recognized as an important artist; the last issue of Stieglitz's Camera Work magazine was entirely devoted to his photographs, including many of his early masterpieces. After broadly exploring the modernist possibilities of photography and filmmaking, Strand moved to Mexico in 1932, where his work began to reflect his ambition to make comprehensive portraits of places. Thereafter, he made photo-essays about different regions around the world, staying for extended periods in the Hebrides in Scotland, Egypt, Morocco, France, Italy, and Ghana, among other places; each body of work is composed of portraits, landscapes, and architectural details. Strand's life's work is the subject of a major touring retrospective, curated by Peter Barberie, beginning at the Philadelphia Museum of Art in 2014"--Dust jacket
Test of faith : signs, serpents, salvation by Lauren Pond( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pentecostal serpent handlers, also known as Signs Followers, hold a literal interpretation of a verse in the New Testament's Gospel of Mark which states that, among other abilities, true believers shall be able to "take up serpents." For more than a century members of this uniquely Appalachian religious tradition have handled venomous snakes during their worship services, risking death as evidence of their unwavering faith. Despite scores of deaths from snakebite and the closure of numerous churches in recent decades, there remains a small contingent of serpent handlers devoted to keeping the practice alive. Who are the serpent handlers? What motivates them to continue their potentially lethal practices through the generations? Documentary photographer Lauren Pond traveled to West Virginia in search of answers to these questions. There she met Pastor Randy "Mack" Wolford, one of the best-known Signs Following preachers in the region, and spent the following year documenting Mack and his family. The course of her work changed dramatically in May 2012, when Mack, then forty-four years old, suffered a fatal rattlesnake bite during a worship service she attended. Pond photographed the events that followed and has continued her relationship with Mack's family.Test of Faith provides a deeply nuanced, personal look at serpent handling that not only invites greater understanding of a religious practice that has long faced derision and criticism; it also serves as a meditation on the photographic process, its ethics, and its capacity to generate empathy
Long light : photographs by David Lebe by Peter Barberie( Book )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book will offer an in-depth account of the work of David Lebe, reproducing many of his important works for the first time in print. Peter Barberie's essay will examine Lebe within the context of other gay and lesbian artists working in the 1970s and 1980s, many of whom turned to photography for its erotic immediacy and confrontational possibilities. The book will present approximately 90-100 images by David Lebe, along with some 20 comparatives by other artists such as Barbara Blondeau, Zoe Leonard, and David Wojnarowicz . Lebe's work will be divided into two main sections: his photographs from the 1970s and 1980s, mostly made in Philadelphia; and his work from the 1990s and beyond"--
