Guest of Cindy Sherman by Paul H-O( Visual )

6 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Paul H-O became a fixture of the New York art scene in the 1990s with his public access show GalleryBeat. Armed with a video camera, he attended art gallery openings, amusing some with his candid, witty assessments of their work, but also winning many fans. Among the latter was Cindy Sherman, the press-shy artist who is internationally acknowledged as one of the world's most gifted and significant visual talents. Cindy invites Paul to her studio for a series of exclusive interviews and through these videotaped encounters, he gains unprecedented insight into her artistic process and a romantic relationship blossoms. Their initial bliss ends when Paul finds himself wracked with anxiety about his own personality becoming subsumed by his role as Cindy's guest at the celebrity-studded openings and dinners she regularly attends."--Film's website

Jimmy DeSana : suburban by Jimmy De Sana( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This surreally lyrical, sexually charged book collects Jimmy DeSana's earlier work, made from 1980 to 1983. For his series Suburban, DeSana staged photos of nude subjects in various evocative poses, entwined with everyday objects and lit with gel-covered tungsten lights. Rather than constructing a space, the "suburban" was a place of examining stereotypes and norms. Of this series, DeSana told Laurie Simmons, his contemporary and longtime roommate, "I don't really think of that work as erotic. I think of the body almost as an object. I attempted to use the body but without the eroticism that some photographers use frequently. I think I de-eroticized a lot of it. Particularly in that period, but that is the way the suburbs are in a sense." Interest in DeSana is at a renewed high: Salon 94 represents his estate and mounted a well-received exhibition in 2012, and art and photography from the early 1980s is enjoying a renaissance across all media. There is a special interest now in queer artists and the legacy of a generation destroyed by AIDS, with regard to contemporary photography and queer culture and Jimmy DeSana: Suburban is an essential contribution to this evolving canon."

Petra Collins : coming of age by Petra Collins( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first monograph by photographer Petra Collins presents the world of a thoroughly modern creative. Since bursting into the zeitgeist, the precocious Petra Collins has captured the hearts of the art and fashion worlds alike. Collins champions an inclusive mode of representation that inspires young women to celebrate how they live now and their agency in creating their image. When Collins shoots--in series ranging from controversial self-portraits to emotionally charged and intensely colored works--she operates on the joys, excitement, tedium, and madness of growing up in today's interconnected kingdom of images. Revealing personal essays, Polaroids, and contributions by the women who inspire her unveil the unassuming grace at the center of campaigns for Gucci and Adidas, films for the Tate, and countless editorials as photographer and subject. Collins embodies the best qualities of the emerging creative community she fosters in curatorial projects like The Ardorous: generous, collaborative, and open."--Publisher's website
