The power of photography : how photographs changed our lives by Vicki Goldberg( Book )

30 editions published between 1991 and 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Photographs have the power to reveal, to condemn, to celerbrate and to catalyze. How that power has been used and abused is the subject of this book. Photography has created a communal memory bank, shared by all the citizens of the world with access to newspapers, books and magazines. From the first X-ray to the first view of earth from space, photographic images have made a difference in how we perceive our world. Governments have used photographs to spy on their citizens, and citizens have used photographs to reform their governments. Photographs of the concentration camps and the My Lai massacre have made the unbelievable undeniable. Photographs have reinforced fame - Betty Grable as pin-up and Marilyn Monroe as a sex goddess. Photographs have achieved their own status as icons - the raising of the flag in Iwo Jima, the mushroom cloud of the atom bomb, the revolutionary portraits of Chairman Mao and Che Guevara. Photographs can also lie, as they have from the beginning and continue to do with ever greater ease as technology progresses. The significance of these images in particular and of photography in general is examined by Vicki Goldberg. -- Publisher's description

Lewis W. Hine children at work by Vicki Goldberg( Book )

11 editions published in 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 554 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The images captured by the American photographer Lewis W. Hine are at once unusual and disturbing. His early 20th-century pictures of children selling newspapers, working on the assembly line, or digging in the fields are still moving evidence of America's dark side at the beginning of the century, when for many children there was little time for childhood."--Jacket
Nude sculpture : 5,000 years by Vicki Goldberg( Book )

8 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 545 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"David Finn presents a wealth of views of the male and female nude in sculpture, from ancient times to the twentieth century, and from a number of cultures throughout the world. Among the artists whose works are illustrated are Michelangelo, Auguste Rodin, Aristide Maillol, and Henry Moore: also included are masterworks by unknown or little-known artists whose astonishing work will bring both wonder and surprise. The photographs permit us to see something of the sculptor's creative process, as well as the qualities of presence, texture, and detail that give the finest sculpture its beauty and majesty. Accompanying the photographs is an illuminating essay by critic Vicki Goldberg, discussing how we look at sculpture and our various responses to the most tactile of the visual arts."--Jacket

Light matters : writings on photography by Vicki Goldberg( Book )

17 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Goldberg's take on photography is both insightful and expansive: her subjects range from pop icons to the imagery of death, from the commercial use of journalistic images to the onslaught of sexual content in art photography. She casts new light on the work of the medium's established masters, among them Walker Evans, Brassai, Lee Friedlander, and Diane Arbus. And she writes with equal acuity about contemporary trailblazers such as Eleanor Antin, Peter Hujar, and Martin Parr. Goldberg also tackles provocative issues confronting the medium, such as the use of photography in defining racial and cultural identity and the camera's powerful position in an increasingly commodified society

RFK by Paul Fusco( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It has been forty years since the murder of Robert Kennedy. For those too young to remember the summer of 1968, it is difficult to convey the shock and despair that followed that event. Famed photographer Paul Fusco was on the funeral train as it went from New York to Washington D.C. His photos of the people lining the tracks to say goodbye are a reflection of their raw emotions and the diversity of Kennedy's supporters. The book begins with short essays by Norman Mailer and Evan Thomas and a reprint of the eulogy delivered at the funeral by Edward Kennedy. Oversize: 12x10".

Wind by Chŏng-jin Yi( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wind showcases the newest work by acclaimed Korean photographer, Jungjin Lee." "Known for her meticulous, textural photographic process, Lee brushes liquid emulsion onto the surface of handmade Korean mulberry paper. The texture of the paper and the gestural marks of the brushstroke create a unique, painterly effect, which is beautifully reproduced in this, her first major trade monograph. Wind captures the ethereal quality of its namesake in a series of landscapes dominated by windswept expanses and foreboding cloud formations - panoramas that reveal an adventurous spirit, yet resist casual entry. Man -made objects, such as a dilapidated school bus or wind- blown prayer flags, frequently appear marked by powerful, invisible elements. Metaphors for an interior state of being and the forces that shape it, Lee's landscapes are imbued with an elemental vastness, at once powerful and serene." "A preface by Vicki Goldberg offers insight into Lee's background and discusses the essential nature of the landscape, which communicates not merely its surface, but resonates within our deepest cultural and individual being. And, an essay by Eugenia Parry addresses the tension inherent in symbolizing what cannot be seen, exploring what absorbs the silent viewer and leads to worlds beyond the senses."
