The art of persuasion : a history of advertising photography by Robert A Sobieszek( Book )

17 editions published in 1988 in English and Japanese and held by 940 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published in conjunction with a world-touring photographic exhibition, this handsome volume chronicles the evolution of advertising photography from straightforward 19th century product images, to present-day work by Bert Stern, Henry Wolf, Irving Penn and others who create an entire advertisement in a single sophisticated photograph. Print advertising can reflect social climate but is more often a trendsetter, we see here: Edward Steichen's elegantly profiled cigarette lighters, for example, or modernist patterns (Auguste Sander, Moholy-Nagy et al.) of the '20s and '30s, the more recently familiar Marlboro and Hathaway men along with Onofrio Paccione's thigh-bound necklace and Penn's lipstick ""palette.'' Sobieszek, curator of the exhibit, has had a difficult task, since much of the original material, not considered ``art,'' was lost or destroyed. Photography Book Club alternate. --
Ghost in the shell : photography and the human soul, 1850-2000 : essays on camera portraiture by Robert A Sobieszek( Book )

20 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 670 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In "'Tolerances of the Human Face': The Affectless Surfaces of Andy Warhol," the author places Warhol's photo-silkscreened portraits in the modern contexts of social and anthropological classification and the symbolism of fame, but suggests that physiognomy has not been entirely silenced. Finally, "'Abstract Machines of Faciality': The Dramaturgical Identities of Cindy Sherman" explores the theatrical aspects of portraiture, tracing a continuum that links Sherman's work to the demonstrations of hysteria staged by the nineteenth-century French neurologist Jean-Martin Charcot, Surrealist masks, performance art, and the use of schizophrenia and multiple selves as metaphors for the postmodern human condition."

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 377 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
