Photographers of genius at the Getty by Weston J Naef( Book )

14 editions published in 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 658 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Celebrating twenty years of collecting photographs at the J. Paul Getty Museum, Photographers of Genius at the Getty and the exhibition it accompanies spotlight the genius of thirty-eight influential photographers whose work is held in depth by the Museum. From Hyppolyte Bayard to Diane Arbus, the innovative pioneers presented here span more than a century of photography from the early years of the new art in the 1840s to the early 1960s. Each advanced the art of photography and, in the process, brought about a change in the history of art, as well." "Many well-known names are included here, such as Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Eugene Atget, Brassai, Julia Margaret Cameron, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Walker Evans, Andre Kertesz, Dorothea Lange, Gustave Le Gray, Man Ray, August Sander, Alfred Stieglitz, and Edward Weston. Others will be new even to experts: early innovators Anna Atkins, Henry Bosse, Joseph-Philibert Girault de Prangey, the Langenheim brothers, and Camille Silvy have been rediscovered in recent years, bringing to light the importance of their particular contributions to the history of art and photography. Each artist is represented by three related images and interpretive remarks by the author."--Jacket

Ranging in date from the 1830s to the 1960s, these photographs provide a brief history of the art of photography and offer a wide-ranging survey of the Getty's holdings. Julia Margaret Cameron, Alfred Stieglitz, Eugene Atget, Andre Kertesz, Walker Evans, and Diane Arbus are among the more than one hundred artists whose works are reproduced in this beautiful volume."--BOOK JACKET.

Exposure : Mary Ellen Mark : the iconic photographs by Mary Ellen Mark( Book )

12 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Acclaimed American documentary photographer Mary Ellen Mark made her first iconic photographs when living in Turkey on a Fulbright Fellowship in the mid-1960s. Her pictures of Bombay brothels, shot in the late 1970s, were published in 1981 in Falkland Road, a book that became legendary and confirmed her status as one of the most prominent and provocative documentary photographers working today. This book presents for the first time a selection of the strongest pictures of Mark's forty-year career, drawing from emblematic series such as "Falkland Road," "Indian Circus," and "Twins," as well as many previously unpublished images. The photographs are accompanied by an introduction by Weston Naef and a text by Mark that provides context and behind-the-scene anecdotes. Together her images and words provide intimate insights into the lives of others, presenting compelling stories of human strength and suffering

Paul Strand : photographs from the J. Paul Getty Museum by Anne M Lyden( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For the photographer and filmmaker Paul Strand (American, 1890-1976), expressing the truth was presenting life as it revealed itself before his camera. This volume in the In Focus series, which is devoted to photographers well represented in the collection of the J. Paul Getty Museum, concentrates on the life and career of this influential artist. It highlights the development of Strand's aesthetic from his early encounters with Cubism to his humanistic depictions of individuals throughout the world, presenting a wide-ranging selection of his powerful work."--Jacket

Carleton Watkins in Yosemite by Weston J Naef( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Carleton E. Watkins (1829-1916), one of America's greatest pioneers of photography, produced almost seven hundred photographs in and around Yosemite Valley, California, beginning in 1858 and so became the first to capture the regions's breathtaking beauty. This selection of forty-nine large format photographs from the collection of the J. Paul Getty Museum includes images of the Mariposa Grove of giant sequoia trees, pristine views from the Merced River, and stunning images of El Capitan, Half Dome, Bridalveil Fall, Cathedral Rocks, and the Three Brothers. Together they persuasively show why Watkins's name will be forever linked to the noble beauty of Yosemite."--Jacket
The art of seeing : photographs from the Alfred Stieglitz collection by N.Y.) Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York( Book )

8 editions published between 1972 and 1978 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This amazing photographic collection, now owned by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, was the result of Alfred Stieglitz's activity between 1894 and 1911. He obtained most of his photographs when he was editor first of "Camera Notes" (1897-1902) and later of "Camera Work" (1902-1917). Between 1907 and 1917, when he met Georgia O'Keeffe (whom he married in 1924), Stieglitz entered a new phase of his artistic life, which was in many ways reflected in the photographs he had so resolutely assembled. The collection of Alfred Stieglitz had, in the words of Georgia O'Keeffe, "begun to collect him." More significantly, the photographs, many of which were soft focus and painterly, came to represent a visual mode that he eventually repudiated in his own work of the 1920s. The scope of the collection is remarkable, and it was not assembled with great rationale, but exhibits a pattern of random, often spontaneous acquisition. Not all of the photographs belonging to Stieglitz were visually strong or historically significant, nor was every photographer equally accomplished. For these reasons, his collection presents a wide spectrum of the work produced during the formative decades of artistic photography in Europe and America, and is a touchstone for modern photography's nascent years, from 1894 through 1910
