Second view : the Rephotographic Survey Project( Book )

2 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Rephotographic Survey Project is one of those rare events in photo history, like the Farm Security Administration photographs of the 1930s, that provides us with a document of remarkable range and information. Conceived and directed in 1977 by Ellen Manchester, Mark Klett, and JoAnn Verburg, the project burgeoned into a three-year effort to locate and rephotograph the sites of the government survey of photographs of the late nineteenth-century. The staff of the project expanded to include photographers Gordon Burshaw and Rick Dingus, and they rephotographed the pictures primarily of Timothy O'Sullivan and William Henry Jackson, but also of J. K. Hillers, A. J. Russell, and Alexander Gardner. The entire project, 120 pairs of images, is presented here."--book jacket

Arid waters : photographs from the Water in the West Project( Book )

5 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arid Waters is a photographic response to the growing crisis of water scarcity, which exists because our culture thinks of water as a commodity, or an abstract legal right, rather than the most basic physical source of life. The Water in the West Project began as a collaborative effort designed to present an artistic response to water as a social issue. Photography historian Ellen Manchester and the photographers - Mark Klett, Terry Evans, Laurie Brown, Peter Goin, Robert Dawson, Martin Stupich, Gregory Conniff, and Wanda Hammerbeck - address the question: How can photography contribute to the urgent public debate over water use and allocation? Project members prepared an exhibition of their work, defining it as a laboratory and emphasizing the process of working through ideas. Contact prints and numerous work prints were displayed on the walls of the Sheppard Fine Art Gallery at the University of Nevada, Reno, and simultaneously the Nevada Humanities Committee sponsored a conference entitled "Water in the Arid West." Participants included historians, writers, ranchers, politicians, lawyers, students, and community members. Arid Waters documents the evolution of the Water in the West Project from its inception as a group collaboration to the foundation of an archive. Ellen Manchester, codirector of the Water in the West Project, has written an informative introduction that provides a historical perspective for the collaboration. Including 59 photographs from the eight photographers, Arid Waters is a testimony to the role photography has played in western history

Photographing Shakespeare : the Folger Shakespeare Library by Robert Dawson( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Folger's editions of Shakespeare's plays are perennial best-sellers, popular with students and general readers alike Founded in 1932, the Folger Library in Washington, D.C. is the world's largest Shakespeare collection. It hosts millions of visitors - in person and online - each year. For two years, award-winning photographer Robert Dawson and independent curator Ellen Manchester went behind the scenes to document its diverse, lively, and sometimes surprising culture. Provided with full access, Dawson and Manchester offer a vivid look at life and work at the Folger, from its arts, outreach, teaching, and research programs to the delicate craft of book conservation. Dawson's images also depict topics that might seem too difficult to capture - the birth of ideas, the scope of digital research, and the staff and visitors' connection with Shakespeare and his works from Macbeth to A Midsummer Night's Dream. Along with photographs, the book also includes writer Jennifer Howard's exploration of the Folger's human side; a meditation on life, death, and the library by Stanford art historian Alexander Nemerov; and an essay by poet and playwright Afaa Michael Weaver on the many ways in which Shakespeare's works live on
