A world history of photography by Naomi Rosenblum( Book )

86 editions published between 1981 and 2019 in 6 languages and held by 4,232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A World History of Photography encompasses the entire range of the medium, from the camera lucida to the latest computer technology, and from Europe and the Americas to the Far East. It investigates all aspects of photography - aesthetic, documentary, commercial, and technical - while placing it in historical context. Included among the more than 800 photographs by men and women are both little-known and celebrated masterpieces, arranged in stimulating juxtapositions that illuminate their visual power." "Dr. Rosenblum's chronicle of photography is authoritative and unbiased, tracing both chronologically and thematically the evolution of this young art. Exploring the diverse roles that photography has played in the communication of ideas, Dr. Rosenblum devotes special attention to topics such as portraiture, documentation, advertising, and photojournalism, and to the camera as a medium of personal artistic expression. Profiles are provided of individual photographers who made notable contributions to the medium or epitomized a certain style."--Jacket
A history of women photographers by Naomi Rosenblum( Book )

17 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 1,410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This history of women's accomplishments in photography ranges around the world and throughout the entire history of the medium, from the mid-1800s to the present. Author Naomi Rosenblum explores the work of some 240 women photographers, from Anna Atkins, Julia Margaret Cameron, and Genevieve-Elisabeth Francart Disderi to Tina Modotti, Lisette Model, Margaret Bourke-White, Louise Dahl-Wolfe, Susan Meiselas, and Cindy Sherman. She chronicles both the women's creativity and the often-challenging contexts within which they worked. Many of these individuals have not previously received the sustained scholarly study needed to establish their importance to the field, and women photographers in general have long been stinted in photographic exhibitions, collections, and criticism, as Dr. Rosenblum makes clear. In addition to the text and photographs are detailed individual biographies and an annotated bibliography. All of this will make this work a valuable resource and should intensify the growing interest in these remarkable women and their work.--From publisher description
A history of women photographers by Naomi Rosenblum( Book )

10 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 678 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this landmark volume, Rosenblum (A World History of Photography) examines sympathetically the achievements of women in photography since its invention in 1839, and highlights society's failure to give them appropriate recognition. One research obstacle the author encountered was the 19th-century practice of men taking credit for work done by women. Here is work from 250 female camera artists, from Julia Margaret Cameron (b. 1815) to Annie Leibovitz (b. 1949), who, despite strong cultural resistance, mastered everything from early wet-plate views and portraits to 35 millimeter photojournalism, often initiating aesthetic and commercial improvements. Her chronicle of women's part in each era's artistic movements and media transitions, plus capsule biographies with an in-depth bibliography and index, make this a seminal reference work. The author's choice of 263 photographs seems to favor the esoteric, bringing to light a largely unknown world in vivid originality and broad archival conception

11 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The addition of 18 new images, three final chapters, & an updated, expanded bibliography & biographies enhance this comprehensive, pioneering history of women's accomplishments in photography. Annotation. Women have made vital contributions to photography both as a profession and as an art form from the very beginning. In every aspect of the medium -- portraiture, social and scientific documentation, advertising, photo-journalism, personal expression -- women have been highly active creators. Yet their achievements have often been overlooked and occasionally even credited to their male spouses or colleagues. With A History of Women Photographers, Dr. Naomi Rosenblum -- author of A World History of Photography -- helps set the record straight. She explores the work of some 250 women photographers, from Julia Margaret Cameron to Tina Modetti, Margaret Bourke-White, and Cindy Sherman. Her ground-breaking work provides an invitingly readable chronicle both of the women's creativity and of the challenging contexts within which they worked. In addition to the illuminating text and striking photographs are densely detailed individual biographies and an extensive annotated bibliography. All of this has made A History of Women Photographers an invaluable resource. The new edition has 2 new color images (replacing two earlier choices) and 15 additional black-and-white images; the final three chapters have been revised and updated, as have the copious bibliography and biographies

Chernobyl : the hidden legacy by Pierpaolo Mittica( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume photographically shows the aftermath of the catastrophic nuclear accident that occurred in 1986 at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in Ukraine. From 2002-2004, the author visited Belarus and the Ukraine several times to document the heritage left by Chernobyl. The expanses of abandoned cities, buildings left in a hurry, and decaying rural villages -- all still contaminated with mega doses of deadly radioactivity -- became horrifying testimonies of the extent of damage. Worse yet, many of the thousands of victims of this tragedy (mostly young, since many older victims are already dead) tell their stories from cancer wards and orphanages for handicapped children with genetic defects. Older residents from the surrounding contaminated areas have chosen to return to their homes to live out their limited lives on their own familiar turf rather than in substandard state-sponsored housing projects. The series of photographs are interspersed throughout the book with short easy-to-read essays, statistics, maps, and quotes from scientists, doctors, residents, and international governmental reports. A bibliography includes a list of sources, including books, documentary films, web sites, and footnotes to some 200 scientific, medical and governmental reports

America & Lewis Hine : photographs 1904-1940 by Lewis Hine( Book )

9 editions published in 1977 in English and Undetermined and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A compassionate realist in the tradition of Stephen Crane and Theodore Dreiser, Lewis Hine had the rare gift of being able to transcend the assignments he received as a documentary photographer by investing the most topical subject with lasting human quality. Seventy years after they were made, his Ellis Island pictures are still intensely moving: the newly arrived immigrants caught in all their bewilderment-- uncertain as to whether they will even be admitted to the promised land. How bitterly ironic that this artist and social reformer, after devoting his life to working people, should end up as so many of his subjects did-- on a welfare line. Decades earlier, he had written: "For many years I have followed the procession of child workers winding through a thousand industrial communities from the canneries of Maine to the fields of Texas. I have heard their tragic stories, watched their cramped lives, and seen their fruitless struggles in the industrial game where the odds are all against them." Like Walt Whitman before him, Lewis Hine viewed his work and art as grounded in the fluid movements of everyday lives, of history, the present and the future, expressing with vividness and responsiveness the hope for America revived in a sense of great community, and democracy as a life of free and enriching communion
