Julia Margaret Cameron : the complete photographs by Julian Cox ( Book )
15 editions published in 2003 in English and Polish and held by 770 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume is a biography and comprehensive, annotated listing of all the known works of British photographer Julia Margaret Cameron (1815-1879). Cameron became known for her portraits of celebrities of the time, and for photographs with Arthurian and other legendary or heroic themes. Although her style was not widely appreciated in her own day, her work has had an impact on modern photographers, especially her closely cropped portraits. In addition to a complete catalog of Cameron's photographs, there is information on her life and times, initial experiments, artistic aspirations, techniques, small-format images, albums, commercial strategies, sitters, and sources of inspiration. Also provided are a selected bibliography of publications on Cameron, a list of exhibitions of her work held both in her time as well as our own, and a summary of important collections where her pictures can be found

Julia Margaret Cameron : a critical biography by Colin Ford ( Book )
20 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Julia Margaret Cameron created astounding photographs, both in quality and subject, photographs that "startle the eye with wonder and delight," observed the Pre-Raphaelite painter George Frederic Watts." "A Victorian wife and mother, Cameron began to practice the art of photography late in life. From her "first success," a haunting study of the nine-year-old Annie Philpot in the early 1860s, she went on to create searching portraits of the most eminent figures of the Victorian age, including Sir John Herschel, Alfred Lord Tennyson, Charles Darwin, Anne Thackeray Ritchie, and Ellen Terry." "Cameron's transition from enthusiastic novice to accomplished artist is revealed in this sensitive study of the woman behind the camera. Colin Ford's unique appraisal of her life and work firmly establishes Julia Margaret Cameron as one of the greatest photographers of all time."--BOOK JACKET

Eyewitness : Hungarian photography in the twentieth century : Brassaï, Capa, Kertész, Moholy-Nagy, Munkácsi by Péter Baki ( Book )
10 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Brassaï, Capa, Kertész, Moholy-Nagy and Munkácsi revolutionised photojournalism and art photography in the first hald of the twentieth century. This handsome book examines how these five men, all of whom left their native country to work in Europe and America, established Hungary - that cultural and geographical intersection between east and west - as a crucibleof photography, and explores the influence of their vision and orginality on suceeding generations of photographers. Illestrated with their major works and a number by their contemporaries - in many cases using vintage prints from Hungarian collections - 'Eyewitness' is a landmark publication in the study of modern photography."--Publisher's website
