"The Great Depression, that restless decade of the 1930s, is known to most Americans today through familiar images of the rural South, of migrant workers, sharecroppers, and dust-bowl small holdings. Now, a new view of the period has come to light in the photographs of John Gutmann, who focused mainly on cities and captured there a vitality and energy--what he calls the 'extravagance of life'--that persisted even in the depth of the Depression."--Jacket

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The energetic, fluctuating pace of the metropolis has long lured photographers to capture--often candidly--the chaos, character, and incident of modern urban life ever since the genesis of photography in the 19th century. The World atlas of street photography focuses on the abundance of photos created on street corners internationally, including classic documentary street photography as well as mediated images of urban landscapes, staged performances, and sculpture. Twelve specially commissioned artworks are featured, in addition to a wide selection of striking and well-known images of city life. Lively and informative, this handsome book compiles expressions of a vibrant genre and is the first of its kind to scour the globe--from New York to New Delhi, Beijing to Brighton, Havana to Hamburg, and Sydney to Seoul. This magnificently illustrated compilation of more than 700 images presents over one hundred established and emerging contemporary photographers, including Nikki S. Lee, Lise Sarfati, Jeff Wall, Daido Moriyama, Alexey Titarenko, Christo and Jeanne-Claude, David Goldblatt, and Julio Bittencourt, among many others. The World atlas of street photography offers a peek through the lenses of photographers chronicling the fever, furor, and intimacy of urban life
The privileged eye : essays on photography by Max Kozloff( Book )

"The title essay, "The privileged eye", meditates at length on the shock of such appearances, as manifested in a single, highly charged image by Henri Cartier-Bresson. Throughout these wide-ranging essays, Kozloff keeps close to the experience of photographic imagery, linking discernment with freshness of visual contact. These essays describe what if feels like to be in the grip of photography's objectified world."--Page 4 de la couverture

Peter Hujar : a retrospective by Peter Hujar( Book )

5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Peter Hujar, a New Yorker of Ukrainian descent, died of AIDS in 1987. He recorded the world in astonishing portraits of cows, sheep, and geese in the country, dogs in the studio, the sea, the city, and above all his fellow human beings, many of whom have since won fame: Susan Sontag, John Waters, Divine, William S. Borroughs, Candy Darling, Robert Wilson, David Wojnarowicz, Paul Thek, and many men, in the nude, half-dressed, sleeping, posing, tumescent. People, animals, landscapes - Peter Hujar approached them all with great respect and a perfect sense of balance between near and far. His subjects face us with supremely dignified singularity, with loneliness at times, and at times in an aura of dauntless and "splendid isolation."

The sadness of men by Philip Perkis( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The one hundred and twenty-five duotone photographs in this collection have been carefully sequenced to build upon each other as a kind of visual fugue, an expression of the profound. The result is both universal and intensely personal, exalting and deeply humbling. It is impossible to step away from this work unmoved." "These images are the gift of a master observer with an eye tuned to the almost imperceptible miracles of everyday life. They are not the familiar one-line gags or jaded images of the poor or suffering, but rather, are evocative explorations of the lovely sadness of life and the wild, sweet rhythms of the world."--Jacket
