Ghost in the shell : photography and the human soul, 1850-2000 : essays on camera portraiture by Robert A Sobieszek( Book )

8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 617 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book's three essays explore traditional, modern, and postmodern approaches to the camera portrait. "'Gymnastics of the Soul': The Clinical Aesthetics of Duchenne de Boulogne" investigates the nineteenth-century certainty that, in the words of Arthur Schopenhauer, "the outer person is a picture of the inner." This belief was pursued in physiognomy, phrenology, and pathognomy, popular pseudosciences of the day that were the culmination of a long tradition including the work of Giambauista della Porta, Charles Le Brun, and Johann Kaspar Lavater. Modernism brought an apparent end to these pursuits through a new awareness of the subjectivity inherent in the use of the camera

Ports of entry : William S. Burroughs and the arts by Robert A Sobieszek( Book )

11 editions published in 1996 in English and German and held by 373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William S. Burroughs, the Beat iconoclast turned cultural icon, has been practicing a postmodern voodoo alchemy, via his cut-up and fold-in techniques, that accurately reflects our fragmented, discontinuous experience of a universe that is fluid, undetermined, tangential, and absurd. His novels, once banned and condemned, have over the years earned him membership in the American Academy and Institute for Arts and Letters and the title Commandeur de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres in France. Now Robert A. Sobieszek, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art's curator of photography, demonstrates how Burroughs's creative practice extends to and permeates most of the arts, how his work has paralleled and in some cases anticipated significant developments in painting, assemblage, music, sculpture, video, and film. Sobieszek discusses and offers illustrations of Burroughs's extensive body of visual art - including his collages, photomontages, sculptural assemblages, shotgunned paintings, and text-image works - as well as the work of artists with whom Burroughs has either collaborated or had an affinity, including Brion Gysin, Keith Haring, Philip Taaffe, and Robert Rauschenberg

Consuming the American landscape by John Ganis( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Ganis has chronicled the effects of the development and extraction industries in every region of the United States over almost two decades. These are disturbing images - desolate strip mines, clear-cut forests, industrial parks, landfill sites and terrains flattened for housing developments - a thesaurus of America's 'civilized' incursions into the wildness of nature, a charting of debris-strewn topographies, and a cogent report on the abdication of any reverence towards the land." "The introductory essay, by Robert Sobieszek of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, gives an overview of historical responses to the American landscape and contextualises the work. Poems that resulted from a collaboration between Ganis and the late anthropologist and poet Stanley Diamond add a further dimension. There is also an afterword by George Thompson, Director of The Center for American Places."--Dust Jacket
