Black sun : the eyes of four : roots and innovation in Japanese photography by Mark Holborn( Book )

2 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 483 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Japanese photography abounds, yet we have few published monographs that chart the growth of art photography in that country. To help fill this gap, Aperture has just published an unusual anthology of work by four of Japan's leading photographers. The most familiar of the four, Eikoh Hosoe, has produced an essay that dramatizes the legend of Kamaitach--a demonic spirit that visits rice fields and slashes its victims to death. Shomei Tomatsu has been absorbed with documenting the effects of the nuclear bombings of Japan along with other newsworthy events. Masahisa Fukase has produced an epic series on crows as a symbol of evil. And Daido Moriyama presents us with his graphic interpretation of Japan's culture. Also included is Mark Haworth-Booth's essay on the Japanese photographic climate
Ed Ruscha by Neal David Benezra( Book )

6 editions published in 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the most consistently inventive artists of recent times, Los Angeles-based Ed Ruscha has been a pioneer in the use of language and imagery drawn from the popular media. From his early powerful word paintings to his influential artist books of the sixties and seventies to his recent colorful views of generic mountains, Ruscha has investigated the spaces between highways and journeys, images and words, abstraction and representation, public imagery and the contemporary landscape. In this publication, which accompanies a major retrospective exhibition organized by the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C. and the Museum of Modern Art, Oxford, Neal Benezra, Kerry Brougher, and Phyllis Rosenzweig focus on all aspects of Ruscha's career, revealing him not merely as an artist closely linked with Los Angeles, but as an important international figure in contemporary art."--Amazon

Open city : street photographs since 1950 by Museum of Modern Art (Oxford)( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Open City traces the history and development of street photography, beginning with the striking images made in the 1950s by Robert Frank. Including both historical and contemporary artists, the survey presents significant images ranging from the realist, and sometimes disturbing, work of Garry Winogrand and William Klein, to the contemporary development of the street photograph as reflected in the work of Nikki S. Lee, Beat Streuli and Wolfgang Tillmans. For other artists, such as Jeff Wall and Philip-Lorca diCorcia, the street becomes a theatre for staged events, set up for the camera rather than snatched by the photographer on the run. This substantial book is extensively illustrated and includes texts examining the technical and conceptual development of post-war street photography. With information and biographies on the artists

Marina Abramović : objects, performance, video, sound by Marina Abramović( Book )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Marina Abramovic (born 1946) is one of the foremost contemporary performance artists. She has used her body and personal history both as a social metaphor and as a material for her work. This publication examines the whole range of her large production to date and establishes the common ground between her installations, videos, performances and objects. A series of articles written by leading art critics and specialists discuss the earliest paintings, sound installations and performances made in Yugoslavia during the 1960s and early 1970s; the years of collaborative performances with Ulay (1976-88); the videos, made both collaboratively and singly throughout her career; the so-called transitional objects which demand the participation of the viewer in order for them to be activated (1988- ); the new, baroque and violently "theatrical" meta-performances Biography (1992) and Delusional (1994) and, most recently, the power objects, which indicate a new departure."--Jacket
