Susan Meiselas : in history by Susan Meiselas( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the 1970s, questions of ethics raised by documentary practice have been central to debates in photography. Perhaps no other photographer has so closely and consistently represented and participated in these debates than Susan Meiselas. An American photographer best known for her work covering the political upheavals in Central America in the 1970s and '80s, Meiselas's process has evolved in radical and challenging ways as she has grappled with pivotal questions about her relationship to her subjects, the use and circulation of her images in the media, and the relationship of images to history and memory. Her insistent engagement with these concerns has positioned her as a leading voice in the debate on contemporary documentary practice."--Jacket
Miroslav Tichý by Miroslav Tichý( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Few stories in the history of photography are as astonishing and as compelling as that of the octogenarian Czech photographer Miroslav Tichý. With crude homemade cameras fashioned out of cardboard and duct tape, Tichý took several thousand pictures of the women of his Moravian hometown of Kyjov throughout the 1960s and '70s. These pictures of women going about their daily business are at once banal and extraordinary, transforming the ordinary moments of work and leisure into small epiphanies. Blurred and off-kilter, his photographs have a striking contemporaneity, resembling the early paintings of Gerhard Richter or the photographs of Sigmar Polke. Printed imperfectly and deliberately battered, they evince a surprising retrograde or even antimodernist feeling, which, in the context of the Cold War atmosphere of provincial Czechoslovakia, just before and after the liberalizing moment of the Prague Spring (1968), undoubtedly constituted a kind of oblique political provocation, a nose-thumbing response to the progressive realist perfectionism of official Soviet culture. The catalogue Miroslav Tichý accompanies an exhibition of the same title at the International Center of Photography organized by Chief Curator Brian Wallis. Critical evaluations by Brian Wallis, Roman Buxbaum, Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, and Richard Prince introduce more than 250 plates and illustrations."--Publisher's website

Hiroshima : Ground Zero 1945 by Erin Barnett( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After the United States detonated an atomic bomb at Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, the U.S. government restricted the circulation of images of the bomb's deadly effect. President Truman dispatched some 1,150 military personnel and civilians, including photographers, to record the destruction as part of the United States Strategic Bombing Survey. The goal of the Survey's Physical Damage Division was to photograph and analyze methodically the impact of the atomic bomb on various building materials surrounding the blast site, the first "Ground Zero." The haunting, once-classified images of absence and annihilation formed the basis for civil defense architecture in the United States. This exhibition includes approximately 60 contact prints drawn from a unique archive of more than 700 photographs in the collection of the International Center of Photography. The exhibition is organized by Erin Barnett, Assistant Curator of Collections

This is war! : Robert Capa at work by Robert Capa( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Robert Capa, one of the preeminent photographers of the twentieth century, was a master of the cinematic photo narrative. His most striking images-of the Spanish Civil War, of the Sino-Japanese conflict, of World War II - appeared in the pages of the leading picture magazines of the day. Many of his most well-known photographs have come to define significant historical moments. It was their broad circulation in international picture magazines that first made them iconic. Some of the most visually sophisticated and politically engaged European and American magazines of the mid-century published Capa's photographs of war, including Vu, Regards, Match, Picture Post, and, of course, Life. This book and the exhibition it accompanies reexamine Capa's innovations as a photojournalist in the 1930s and 1940s. Vintage prints, contact sheets, caption sheets, handwritten observations, personal letters, and original magazine layouts reveal Capa's working process in the construction of six key photo stories."--Jacket
