Black sun : the eyes of four : roots and innovation in Japanese photography by Mark Holborn( Book )

4 editions published between 1985 and 1986 in English and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Japanese photography abounds, yet we have few published monographs that chart the growth of art photography in that country. To help fill this gap, Aperture has just published an unusual anthology of work by four of Japan's leading photographers. The most familiar of the four, Eikoh Hosoe, has produced an essay that dramatizes the legend of Kamaitach--a demonic spirit that visits rice fields and slashes its victims to death. Shomei Tomatsu has been absorbed with documenting the effects of the nuclear bombings of Japan along with other newsworthy events. Masahisa Fukase has produced an epic series on crows as a symbol of evil. And Daido Moriyama presents us with his graphic interpretation of Japan's culture. Also included is Mark Haworth-Booth's essay on the Japanese photographic climate

Herzog & de Meuron + Ai Weiwei : Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2012 by Herzog & de Meuron( Book )

8 editions published in 2012 in English and German and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2008, Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron and Chinese artist Ai Weiwei joined forces to design the celebrated Beijing National Stadium for the Olympic Games. In 2012, the team came together again for the Serpentine Gallery's acclaimed annual commission, as part of the London 2012 Festival, the culmination of the Cultural Olympiad. Their pavilion takes visitors beneath the Serpentine's lawn to explore the hidden history of its previous pavilions. Supporting the structure from below, eleven columns symbolize past pavilions, and a twelfth represents the current one. The pavilion's interior is clad in cork, to evoke the excavated earth, and is built as a network of pathways and trenches. Herzog & de Meuron and Weiwei's archaeological approach creates a space that invites visitors to look beneath the surface of the park as well as back in time to the inspiration of earlier structures.--Provided by publisher
