Alfred Stieglitz, photographs & writings by Alfred Stieglitz( Book )

31 editions published between 1983 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents seventy-three of American photographer Alfred Stieglitz's finest works. The photographs span Stieglitz's entire career; his early European studies from the 1880s and 1890s; his views of New York City from the turn of the century; the portraits of the many artists and writers he supported; the extended portraiture of Georgia O'Keefe; his photographs of clouds, the Equivalents; and his final studies of New York City and Lake George from the 1920s and 1930s. This book focuses on Stieglitz's central vision of photography ("search for objective truth and pure form") which increasingly was about "antiphotographs" or images that move beyond simple representation. Originally published as a complement to the exhibition at the National Gallery of Art in 1983
On the art of fixing a shadow : one hundred and fifty years of photography by Sarah Greenough( Book )

21 editions published in 1989 in 3 languages and held by 1,074 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a catalogue of an exhibition held at the National Gallery of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. At this sesquicentennial celebration, it has been our intention in both the exhibition and the catalogue to present and analyze those photographs that, regardless of why they were made, seem the most visually significant. Limiting ourselves, for the most part, to American and European photographers, we have attempted to chart the development of an understanding of photography as a pictorial device. - Introduction

Looking in : Robert Frank's The Americans by Sarah Greenough( Book )

21 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 639 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in France in 1958, then the United States in 1959, Robert Frank's The Americans changed the course of twentieth-century photography. In eighty-three photographs, Frank looked beneath the surface of American life to reveal a people plagued by racism, ill served by their politicians, and rendered numb by a rapidly expanding culture of consumption. Yet he also found novel areas of beauty in simple, overlooked corners of American life. And it was not just his subject matter - cars, jukeboxes, and even the road itself - that redefined the icons of America; it was also his seemingly intuitive, immediate, off-kilter style, as well as his method of brilliantly linking his photographs together thematically, conceptually, formally, and linguistically, that made The Americans so innovative. More of an ode or a poem than a literal document, the book is as powerful and provocative today as it was fifty years ago."--Jacket

10 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 572 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Roger Fenton (1819-1869) was England's most celebrated photographer during the 1850s, the young medium's most glorious moment. After studying law and painting, Fenton took up the camera in 1851 and immediately began to produce highly original images. During a decade of work he mastered every photographic genre he attempted: architectural photography, landscape, portraiture, still life, reportage, and tableau vivant."

Six leading scholars have contributed nine illustrated essays that address every aspect of Fenton's career, as well as a comprehensive, documented chronology."--Jacket

André Kertész by André Kertész( Book )

13 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 493 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Andre Kertesz (1894-1985) is one of the most important photographers of the twentieth century. In a career that spanned more than seventy years, he made some of the most deceptively simple yet compelling photographs ever created. He sought to capture the poetry of modern urban life, revealing its quiet incidents and odd, occasional comic, even bizarre juxtapositions." "This book chronicles his art, from his first works taken in his native Hungary just shortly before World War I, to his highly celebrated photographs of Paris in the 1920s and 1930s, and his studies of New York from the late 1930s to the early 1980s. Greenough and her colleagues have examined the extensive archive of diaries, letters, date books, clippings, and other memorabilia preserved by the artist himself. In their essays and an illustrated chronology, they provide new insights into the development of Kertesz's life and art, and its significance for twentieth-century photography. This book includes more than 250 reproductions and numerous excerpts from the photographer's previously unpublished correspondence and diaries."--Jacket

The memory of time : contemporary photographs from the National Gallery of Art by National Gallery of Art (U.S.)( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From a shared fascination with photographys past, including early photographic techniques, to creating works which give form to the literal passage of time and the fleeting evidence of cultural change, many artists are creating works that evocatively engage with how the past has been shaped by photography. Organized thematically, this volume explores the work of twenty-six contemporary artists who investigate the complex and resonant relationship of photography to time, memory and history. While many photographs seem to depict a singular moment in time, each image contains multiple layers, including the instant of exposure, the moment of viewing, and the lapse in between. 0Exhibition: National Gallery, Washington DC, USA (03.05-13.09.2015)
Beat memories : the photographs of Allen Ginsberg by Sarah Greenough( Book )

12 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the most visionary writers of his generation, Ginsberg was also a photographer. From 1953 to 1963 he frequently had his camera close by when he was with friends in his apartment or traveling with them, ready to record 'certain moments in eternity, ' as he wrote. For years many of these photographs languished among Ginsberg's papers. When he finally recovered them in the 1980s, he reprinted them and added handwritten narrative inscriptions. Inspired by this early work, he began to photograph again, recording both long-time friends and new acquaintances. Some eighty of these photographs are collected and brilliantly reproduced in this book, which also features the first scholarly essay on Ginsberg's photographs, written by Sarah Greenough, addressing the relationship of his photographs to his poetry and to works by other photographers of the period. Ginsberg's photographs depict many of his contemporaries, including his closest friends and lovers, such as Jack Kerouac, William S. Burroughs, Neal Cassady, Gregory Corso, and Peter Orlovsky. They capture days walking the streets of Manhattan, San Francisco, and Paris as well as grand tours of Africa and Asia."--Jacket flap
Irving Penn : platinum prints by Sarah Greenough( Book )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a career that spans more than fifty years, American photographer Irving Penn (born 1917) has created some of the most arresting portraits, influential fashion studies, and provocative still lifes of the twentieth century. In the early 1960s when he turned from magazine work to platinum printing, he reinterpreted his earlier photographs, transforming them into the independent works of art that have been celebrated for the last thirty years. Extensively with the platinum process, making innumerable test strips in his quest to achieve remarkably subtle, rich tonal ranges and luxurious textures. When Penn rediscovered these test trips in the late 1980s, he arranged them in seventeen provocative collages, the Platinum Test Materials, which represent timeless meditations on his entire career: in demonstrating his search for perfection - and the difficulties in obtaining it - he has made this quest the very subject of his art." "This book reproduces the seventeen Platinum Test Materials, as well as the eighty-five platinum prints that are represented in these collages. Some of Penn's most important photographs are included, from portraits of Marcel Duchamp, Pablo Picasso, David Smith, and Saul Steinberg; to studies of indigenous peoples in New Guinea; innovative still lifes; and celebrated fashion studies."--Jacket

Georgia O'Keeffe by Georgia O'Keeffe( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and German and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Starting in the '20s - when Georgia was recognized as one of the most important protagonists of modernism in America - until his death, the artist and his works have attracted a great interest in the arts community and the American public. Despite the great gained recognition in America and Europe, only a few of his works have been exhibited to the European public. Artist and woman, Georgia O 'Keeffe (1887-1986) embodies the American myth of independence, individualism and greatness. His works are unique, as the combination of colors: the study of forms, the choice of tone and color, the curvy and sensual portion of the brush are repeated in games and new combinations, but never quite different. Founded in 1887 by a family of farmers and She went to art since childhood, Georgia O'Keeffe began his studies in Chicago then continued to New York. After working as a graphic design and teacher, from 1918 he devoted himself entirely to painting, with the support of the photographer and gallery owner Alfred Stieglitz, whom she married in 1924 and with whom he lived at 30 th floor of the Shelton Hotel in New York. These were the years when he began to paint the Big City. After many trips to the United States, following the death of her husband in 1946, he settled in New Mexico that had inspired so much. At the age of 66 years began to travel the world and devoted himself to experiments with clay. He died in 1986"--Transliterated from publisher's website
