New York : capital of photography by Max Kozloff( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Most of these photographers were Jewish. New York: Capital of Photography examines their responses to their environment in the context of a Jewish sensibility, as manifested especially by the depiction of viewer-viewed relationships in the public - and not so public - spaces of the city. This book recognizes and newly analyzes the influence of Jewish consciousness on the photographic vision of a great metropolis."--Jacket

Ray K. Metzker : light lines by Ray K Metzker( Book )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and French and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The goal of this publication is a fully-retrospective presentation of the work of Ray K. Metzker, one of the most important and original American photographers of the second half of the twentieth century. The book, with more than 200 high-quality reproductions, features all aspects of his prolific career of more fifty years - which still shows no sign of abating. Well-known and much-exhibited in the United States, Metzker is inexplicably less well-known outside the States. This retrospective survey encompasses the full range of Metzker's brilliant, constantly evolving, formal language." "Although Metzker has photographed in Europe on several occasions, he has never felt the need to travel to particularly exotic climes for inspiration. He finds it readily at hand in the neighbourhoods where he has lived - principally Chicago and Philadelphia - and increasingly in the domain of nature, though the vegetation he depicts in such original form might well be that of a weed-clogged vacant city lot as much as the vast open plains of the American West."--Jacket
The century of the body : 100 photoworks, 1900-2000( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Century of the Body presents chronologically one hundred works that illustrate all the significant genres of body-centred photography, in both art and science. Dance, sport, fashion, glamour, anatomy, medicine, criminology, political propaganda, erotic imagery, Body Art, and all the varied currents of what is called 'art photography' are featured, each represented by the most innovative photographers of their day. The greats of scientific and technological imagemaking, notably Lennart Nilsson and Ralph T. Hutchings, are included. So, too, are the leading art photographers of the century, among them Alfred Stieglitz, Man Ray, Brassai, Edward Weston, Imogen Cunningham, Bill Brandt, Robert Mapplethorpe, Cindy Sherman, Richard Avedon and Joel-Peter Witkin. Well known Body Artists, such as Claude Cahun, Carolee Schneemann and Chris Burden, who used the camera to record the performances, are also acknowledged." "The Musee de l'Elysee in Lausanne, one of the world's foremost photography museums, has selected these landmark images to celebrate some of modern photography's finest achievements. An introduction by William A. Ewing, and full commentaries on every photograph, survey the entire range of twentieth-century imagery, focusing on the radical shifts in attitudes to the body that have taken place since 1900. The images, magnificently reproduced in duotone and colour, stand as a lasting memorial to the finest photographic artists and scientists of the past one hundred years."--Jacket

Salvador Dalí's flamboyant mustache, Richard Nixon jumping in the West Wing, Grace Kelly's amazing profile--these are just a few of the images that achieved iconic status and helped make photographer Philippe Halsman an icon in his own right.

Carlo Valsecchi : lumen by Carlo Valsecchi( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and French and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Valsecchi alternates between the near and far, between precise figuration and poetic abstraction. Devoid of humn presence, his large-format photographs often take unexpected vantage points, which initially destabilize our perception, then engage with the imagery. Valsecchi, while within the German tradition of the industrial landscape, has found his own register, towards the monochrome with a soft palette and nuanced chromatic scale. His approach evokes the pictorial grandeur of Abstract Expressionism.--Publisher
