Most widely held works by Jessica S McDonald
Elliott Erwitt : home around the world by Jessica S McDonald( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elliott Erwitt: Home Around the World offers a timely and critical reconsideration of Erwitt's unparalleled life as a photographer. Produced alongside a major retrospective exhibition, the book features examples of Erwitt's early experiments in California, his intimate family portraits in New York, his major magazine assignments and long-term documentary interests, and his ongoing personal investigations of public spaces and their transitory inhabitants. Essays by photography experts based on extensive new interviews with the photographer consider less-studied aspects of Erwitt's work: his engagement with social and political issues through photojournalism, the humanist qualities of his very early photographs, and his work as a filmmaker. Home Around the World traces the development and refinement of Erwitt's unique visual approach over time. With over two hundred photographs, and ephemera including magazine reproductions, advertisements, and contact sheets, this volume is the first to offer a comprehensive historical treatment of Erwitt's body of work and position in the field

Carpoolers by Alejandro Cartagena( Book )

4 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cartagena's subjects are the numerous pick-up trucks on their way to work and back. This change of perspective reveals to us a hidden world or culture even. Passengers are laid out in the back of each truck, surrounded by their various possessions. Tight cropping excludes everything around the truck except a small section of the road, emphasizing the frame-like quality, presenting us the contents as tableaux, in belief-defying sharpness. A quality which, though it casts some doubt as to the actual spontaneity and verisimilitude of the images, certainly lends to the idea of the image as a painting. Each person or grouping is so still, so perfectly composed that these confined spaces take on an almost religious significance, resembling the grave good arrangements found on prehistoric burial sites. This religious aspect is emphasized by the sporadic addition of images of the sky over their heads. --

Centralizing Rochester : a critical historiography of American photography in the 1960s and 1970s by Jessica S McDonald( Book )

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

"Despite the status photography now claims in American art institutions and academia, its current position is largely the result of a period of rapid expansion in the 1960s and 1970s known as the 'photo boom.' This dissertation argues that the city of Rochester, New York, was a crucial hub during this expansion, yet remains largely excluded from the photographic literature. Rochester served as the base of operations for a constellation of figures and institutions working to build an infrastructure for the field, and advocating for photography's inclusion in a broad, interdisciplinary discourse on art, images, and contemporary culture. However, historical accounts of this period typically focus on the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, resulting in a limited understanding of the era's renewed sense of pluralism and critical engagement. Though not intended as a monographic study, this project focuses on the work of Nathan Lyons, the unifying force behind the programs at George Eastman House, Visual Studies Workshop, the Society for Photographic Education, and the Rochester 'photo community' at large, and his efforts to investigate the full spectrum of diverse artistic practice that characterized the era. In doing so, this dissertation complicates the persistent historical division between 'photographers' and 'artists using photography.' While other recent studies have attempted to decentralize the history of American photography, none has focused on Rochester. This dissertation aims to fill this important gap in the conventional history of photography while challenging its traditional linear structure."--Page v
