Exposed : voyeurism, surveillance, and the camera since 1870( Book )

7 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the rise of the photographic medium in the late 19th century, people have been fascinated by the camera’s ability to record striking moments both public and private. From Mathew Brady’s haunting images of the Civil War to the present day paparazzi’s brand of voyeurism-for-hire, photography has long served to capture not only the posed portrait but also the personal, the intimate, the unexpected, and the taboo. This fascinating book examines the ways in which acts of voyeurism and surveillance have inspired, challenged, and expanded the medium of photography throughout its evolution.Featuring photography by Sophie Calle, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Walker Evans, Harun Farocki, Nan Goldin, Robert Mapplethorpe, Helmut Newton, Andy Warhol, and Weegee, among others, Exposed chronicles the artistic, political, and even moral dilemmas that underlie some of these artists’ best known works. Through insightful essays and commentary by Sandra Phillips, one of the foremost authorities on the history of 20th-century photography, Exposed examines some of the most invasive and unsettling aspects of photography, including the use of the hidden camera, the production of erotic pictures and pornography, and the intersection of photography with both celebrity and violence
Crossing the frontier : photographs of the developing West, 1849 to the present by Sandra S Phillips( Book )

15 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Poignant and provocative, Crossing the Frontier is the first book to trace the tradition of landscape photography in the American West, with over 150 images, many never before published. From the gold rush to the great railroad constructions, the early images featured here chart the rapid advance of industrialization during the nineteenth century. More recent photographs convey the complicated aftereffects of this westward expansion, documenting the trail of human encroachment on the natural environment. Published in conjunction with a major photographic exhibition, this volume features work by many important classic and contemporary photographers, as well as essays on the photography, mythology, geology, and architecture of the West by four distinguished authors

Police pictures : the photograph as evidence by Sandra S Phillips( Book )

13 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The mug shot, the scene of the crime, photographic evidence - all of these are predicated on the belief that the photograph shows the truth, unvarnished and indisputable. But does it? In a remarkable survey of over 120 images from public and private sources, Police Pictures questions the conjunction of photography and enforcement and challenges the ability of image to represent the truth. From haunting photographs of the Lincoln conspirators to Weegee's sordid murder victims and the prisoner portraits taken by the Khmer Rouge, Police Pictures explores the policing function of photography - and the controversial manipulations of images by and for the forces of authority - in a catalogue of the power of the law and the lens

John Szarkowski : photographs by John Szarkowski( Book )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1962 John Szarkowski accepted the position of director of photography at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Before that time he had received two Guggenheim Fellowships for his own photography, had been given exhibitions by the Walker Art Center, the George Eastman House, and the Art Institute of Chicago, and had published two books of his photographs - The Idea of Louis Sullivan and The Face of Minnesota - to critical and popular acclaim. From 1962 until retiring from the museum in 1991, he made no effort to exhibit or publish his work. Now his work from his first twenty years as a photographer and that since resuming his life as a photographer is published in this volume. Published in conjunction with a major touring retrospective exhibition originated by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the book is confirmation that Szarkowski is first and foremost a photographer." "Accompanying the photographs are excerpts from a lifetime's correspondence, giving a glimpse of Szarkowski's perspective on life and photography. Curator Sandra S. Phillips contributes a critical essay."--Jacket

The photography of John Gutmann: culture shock by Sandra S Phillips( Book )

11 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This retrospective volume traces Gutmann's career from his training as a painter in Germany, first under renowned Expressionist Otto Muller, then in the wild, decadent Berlin of the 1930s, through his resolution to leave during Hitler's ascent to power, to his decision to settle in San Francisco. As a Jew, Gutmann was forbidden by the Nazis to exhibit or teach; photojournalism struck him as a useful means of supporting himself as a refugee. He had no training as a photographer and no interest in the medium as a pure art form, but he was fascinated by the popular culture of photography in magazines. Bringing to San Francisco the eye for the bizarre that he had developed in recording the vibrant, cosmopolitan life of Berlin - an eye further sensitized by his status as an exile in a strange country - Gutmann photographed the odd, the morbid, and the freakish with the detachment of an anthropologist examining an exotic culture."--Jacket
