Mathew Brady and the image of history by Mary Panzer( Book )

13 editions published between 1997 and 2004 in English and German and held by 881 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Taking advantage of emerging photographic paper printing techniques to create large-format, classically posed portraits, Brady also collaborated with painters such as G.P.A. Healy and Alonzo Chappel, who used his photographs to complete their own heroically scaled images. Contending that Brady's photographs contribute to an ongoing national interest in the Civil War, Panzer concludes that they continue to function as Brady hoped they would, constructing an idealized history in which fact and memory are intertwined

5 editions published between 1985 and 1986 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rudolf Eickemeyer, Jr. began his work as a photographer in 1884, for his father's engineering firm. His interest piqued, he rapidly advanced to portraiture and landscape photography. Eickemeyer spent twenty years as a commercial success in his role as fashionable Fifth Avenue portraitist. Working with Eastman Kodak, he demystified photography, attracting thousands of amateurs. Eickemeyer excelled at both artistic photography and professional photography, as this exhibition attests. A lifelong resident of Yonkers, New York, Eickemeyer played a key role in the creation of the Yonkers Museum of Science and Art, the institutional forerunner of the Hudson River Museum, an entirely appropriate venue for this comprehensive exhibition and catalog

Eakins and the photograph : works by Thomas Eakins and his circle in the collection of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts by Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the foremost American painters of the nineteenth century, Thomas Eakins (1844-1916) also was a pioneer in the fields of artistic and scientific photography. Although most of his photographs relate to his private life, he also used photography to prepare for his painting and sculpture projects to research anatomy and locomotion and as an expressive medium in its own right. His platinum prints broke new ground in photographic printing but the most innovative aspect of his work was his emphasis on the nude, then part of the French repertoire of academic visual studies but rarely encountered in the United States."--BOOK JACKET. "Eakins and the Photograph is the first catalogue of the Eakins photographs in the Pennsylvania Academy's Charles Bregler collection, which includes about three fourths of Eakins's photographic output. The book describes the entire collection of 648 images, reproducing 173 black-and-white photographs, 52 duotones, and a portfolio section of 16 tritones. This is the first book to place Eakins's photographic works (and those of his circle) within the context of the transitional era between 1880 and 1900, when photography moved from the realm of commerce to that of art."--Jacket
Avedon : Murals and Portraits by Mary Panzer( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Portraits by Mary Ellen Mark( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mary Ellen Mark here pairs images of the world's homeless and alienated with portraits of world-famous actors, musicians, writers, and other celebrities. The differences are palpable. Studiously posed yet comfortable with the camera, icons such as Jodie Foster, John Irving, Lillian Gish, Johnny Depp, and Francois Truffaut fill each frame with an invulnerable gaze. In contrast, impoverished children in Ireland, Texas, or James Bay, Canada, seem unreachable both in their social and geographic removal and in their alarming calm."--BOOK JACKET. "Despite vastly different lives, subtle correspondences of mood and theme emerge in the paired images: Boy George self-consciously folds his hands in prayer, a gesture echoed on the previous page by a sincerely reverent Indian girl standing in the Ganges. A homeless Irish boy seems as proud in his solitude as Kevin Costner in the persona of Wyatt Earp. Whether of stars posing as outcasts or a Vietnamese circus performer assuming the imperious posture of a star, the photographs of Mary Ellen Mark resonate singly, in pairs, and as a sequence, haunting viewers with their depictions of lives far removed from everyday existence."--BOOK JACKET
