Bill Brandt : behind the camera : photographs 1928-1983 by Bill Brandt( Book )

19 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 757 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Universally acknowledged as the greatest British photographer and one of the great masters of all twentieth-century photography, Bill Brandt left an indelible mark on the medium during a career that spanned more than fifty years. Trained in the Paris studio of Man Ray, Brandt returned to England and produced a body of work that ranged from insightful portraits of English upper-crust society to views of the gritty poverty of the industrial north. During the Blitz of World War II, Brandt created an epic picture of blacked-out London, with images of bomb-damaged landmarks such as Saint Paul's Cathedral and residents sheltering in underground subway stations. After the war, he began a series of ninety remarkable nude studies using lens distortions and unusual points of view to interpret the female form in new and exciting ways. At the same time, he photographed the movers and shakers of the English artistic scene, making portraits of everyone from Alec Guinness to David Hockney, and he toured the island nation tracking down landscapes that had been influential to important British writers for a historic series called "Literary Britain.""--Publisher's information

Manufactured landscapes : the photographs of Edward Burtynsky by Lori ( Pauli( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 692 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the past twenty-five years, the Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky has been an explorer of unfamiliar places where industrial activity has reshaped the surface of the land. His surveys of the man-made terrain of quarrying, mining, railcutting, recycling, oil refining, and shipbreaking remind us that these incursions into the earth arise out of perennial human needs and desires. Burtynsky's photographs may show us things that are disturbing, but they also have about them an unexpected beauty, subverting our usual notions of the sublime in nature and leading us to a new awareness of the landscape of our times." "Manufactured Landscapes, organized by the National Gallery of Canada, is the first major retrospective of Edward Burtynsky's work. This fully illustrated catalogue of the exhibition includes essays by Lori Pauli, Mark Haworth-Booth, and Kenneth Baker, and an interview with the artist by Michael Torosian."--Jacket

Reflections in a looking glass : a centennial celebration of Lewis Carroll, photographer by Morton N Cohen( Book )

7 editions published in 1998 in English and Spanish and held by 574 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beloved as the author of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass, two of the most popular children's stories of all time, the Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (alias Lewis Carroll) was also one of the great photographers of children of the nineteenth century." "The photographs in this richly illustrated book - a number of them previously unpublished - reflect Carroll's lifelong fascination with children and their world. These remarkable portraits of his "child friends" were made between 1856 and 1880, during the height of the Victorian Age in England - many of them at Carroll's rooms at Oxford, where he was Mathematical Lecturer. Also included in this volume are Carroll's photographs of friends, family, and luminaries of the day, as well as the only four nude portraits that have come to light." "The central text, by Carroll biographer and leading scholar Morton N. Cohen, discusses the role of photography in Carroll's vast and diverse creative output. Cohen adds annotated captions and excerpts from Carroll's diaries and other writings to provide unique insight into the creative genius that produced the Alice books and other children's favorites."--Jacket

Things : a spectrum of photography 1850-2001 by Mark Haworth-Booth( Book )

10 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 407 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The medium of photography used the laws of chemistry and physics to create superbly detailed descriptions of the material world that surpassed all earlier graphic media. Objects were photography's earliest subject. This book draws from the photographs in the Victoria and Albert Museum's collection, which were made by artists, scientists, reporters, advertising and editorial photographers, from the pioneers to the postmoderns. Things includes the work of ninety photographers from Talbot and Julia Margaret Cameron to Edward Weston, Cartier-Bresson, Irving Penn, Diane Arbus and that of a new generation on the cutting edge of recent technology. This book is a survey of how we view the physical world, and within the structure of the book is contained the history of photography itself
Police pictures : the photograph as evidence by Sandra S Phillips( Book )

13 editions published in 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The mug shot, the scene of the crime, photographic evidence - all of these are predicated on the belief that the photograph shows the truth, unvarnished and indisputable. But does it? In a remarkable survey of over 120 images from public and private sources, Police Pictures questions the conjunction of photography and enforcement and challenges the ability of image to represent the truth. From haunting photographs of the Lincoln conspirators to Weegee's sordid murder victims and the prisoner portraits taken by the Khmer Rouge, Police Pictures explores the policing function of photography - and the controversial manipulations of images by and for the forces of authority - in a catalogue of the power of the law and the lens

Benjamin Brecknell Turner : rural England through a Victorian lens by Martin Barnes( Book )

5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the early 1850s, Benjamin Brecknell Turner (1815-1894) photographed picturesque, quintessentially English scenes: ruined abbeys and castles, thatched barns and half-timbered houses, crumbling cottages, ancient oak trees and woodland paths. His poetic images reveal the rough-hewn beauty of rustic subjects and the moral worth of tradition, nature, and rural life and labor. Nearly all of the works are drawn from one magnificent album, Photographic Views from Nature, assembled by the artist in 1854 or 1855 and passed down in his family until it was acquired by London's Victoria and Albert Museum in 1982. Turner, who was born in London in 1815 and entered the family candle and saddle soap business at the age of sixteen, first took up photography in 1849, when the medium was barely a decade old. Like many early practitioners, he was a "gentleman amateur" for whom photography was a passion, not a profession, so he made only a few prints of each image. Photographic Views from Nature constitutes the richest group of Turner's rare surviving prints. The album opens with two views of the Crystal Palace, Joseph Paxton's vast iron-and-glass pavilion built for the "Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of All Nations" in 1851--the first world's fair. Crystal Palace, Hyde Park, 1852, Transept shows the building after its six million visitors had left and its thousands of exhibits had been removed--an empty, enormous modern greenhouse built around an ancient elm. Two lacy networks--tree branches and iron trusses--form a visual metaphor for nature and industry, tradition and modernity, all issues central to the artist's work. Most of Turner's photographs eschew the modern, urban world in favor of country scenes and historic subjects. The artist described his approach to picture-making by way of a Washington Irving text he chose to accompany his photograph in The Photographic Album for the Year 1855: "England does not abound in grand and sublime prospects, but rather in little home-scenes of rural repose and sheltered quiet. Every antique farm-house and moss grown cottage is a picture." Many of Turner's best photographs, such as Foldyard, Bredicot Court (1852-54) and Hedgerow Trees, Clerkenleap (1852-54), were made quite close to home, at his picturesquely rundown farm near the village of Bredicot and in other nearby Worcestershire towns. Other photographs in the album represent historic architecture--Hawkhurst Church mirrored in a pond, a windmill at Kempsey, Ludlow Castle, and a gateway at Peterborough Cathedral, and others. Among the most striking are a series of dramatic photographs made in 1852-54 at Whitby Abbey, a thirteenth-century Benedictine cloister in Yorkshire the gaunt remains of which sit atop a cliff high above the town. Turner depicted the abbey in a progression beginning from a distant point to the very heart of the ruined structure, evoking all the connotations such sites inspired in the Romantic era--the echo of history, the reminder of mortality, and the inexorable reclaiming of man's constructions by nature
