Photography : making art and recording life( Visual )

2 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Photographs have the potential to present powerful truths, or to create convincing fictions. This program uses case studies involving Iwo Jima, Elian Gonzalez, and O.J. Simpson to show how images can be manipulated to influence the way viewers perceive events. The ethics of photography and the positive and negative impacts of digital technology, which is steadily eroding the border between artistic and documentary photography, are covered."--Container

Evidence by Larry Sultan( Book )

20 editions published between 1977 and 2018 in English and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mike Mandel's and Larry Sultan's Evidence is a collection of found and recontextualized images taken from public and private American institutions, corporations, and agencies. In 1977, after sorting through the local picture archives at a California NASA office, the young artists, just out of their graduate studies, received a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts to continue the work in other such spaces. After sorting through a hundred archives that chronicled America's frontier into the technologically advanced future, they carefully selected a dynamic batch of images to be sequenced loosely into a book and exhibition. The book is considered a seminal foundation for a new conceptual practice based in photographic mediums that attempt to decentralize the once-triumphed pinnacles in photography-as-art: narrative and authorship. In contemporary photographic discourses, owning the image one creates (or more accurately, uses) no longer suggests an ethical or artistic quandary, rather an interesting intersection of art and politics"--Ahorn Magazine archive
Portraits and snapshots( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the Civil War, portrait and snapshot photography have provided a visual history of life-and transformed society. This program explores how professional and amateur photographers capture the essence of people while considering the intensely personal nature of portraits and snapshots, their use as means of self-exploration and cultural narrative, and concerns involving their commodification and decontextualization. Commentary is provided by photographers Michael Collopy, Dale Kistemaker, Larry Sultan, Catherine Wagner, Richard Barnes, and Ed Kashi
Decoding photographic images( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When setting up a shot, a photographer works with composition, lighting, and color to create a subliminal subtext that reinforces or even carries the meaning of his or her subject. This program illustrates how basic components of photography-line, shape, form, texture, balance, volume duality, point of view, depth of field, and perspective-contribute to an image's impact on the subconscious mind. Commentary is provided by Herb Zettl, author of the seminal Sight Sound Motion, and photographers Jo Whaley, Stephen Johnson, Larry Sultan, and Catherine Wagner

"This first comprehensive overview of celebrated photographer Larry Sultan's work accompanies a major retrospective and features work from every significant series, including Homeland, his most recent body of work. This first comprehensive overview of celebrated photographer Larry Sultan's work accompanies a major retrospective and features work from every significant series, including: Evidence (1977), the conceptual project with Mike Mandel, which broke ground by demonstrating how context and sequence directly influence our interpretation of photographs; Pictures from Home (1982-92), a personal exploration of family and domesticity challenging larger notions of representation through use of contemporary pictures of Sultan's parents contrasted with movie stills from his childhood; The Valley (1998-2003), a deliberate inquiry into the subversion of the suburban homes commonly used by the porn industry as sets for films; and Homeland (2006-09), Sultan's most recent body of work, depicting day laborers posed in evocative California settings suggesting both dislocation and longing. Also featured are additional early collaborative works with Mandel, selected later career editorial work, and writings by and interviews with Sultan elucidating his creative process"--

The work of Californian photographer Larry Sultan (1946-2009) has become known as one of the central oeuvres of post-conceptual photography. Since 1972, he and Los Angeles-based photographer Mike Mandel have collaborated on numerous projects, including the controversial photo-essay Evidence. This series consists of revealing images plucked from government and corporate archives, such as police and fire departments, aerospace and engineering firms. Later on, in 2004, Sultan published his provocative series The Valley, an exposé of the adult film industry, in which the artist focused on the suburban neighborhoods and middle-class family homes that serve as pornographic sets.

5 editions published in 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Personal experience and photography are indelibly linked. Over the past three decades, contemporary artists Tina Barney, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Nan Goldin, Sally Mann, and Larry Sultan have created works that document - and sometimes expand or construct - stories based on their own experiences. The resulting photographs explore notions of family across generations, reveal intensely personal moments that are not often depicted, and engage viewers in the narratives they suggest." "This catalogue, presented in conjunction with an exhibition organized by the Art Institute of Chicago, is arranged in portfolio format and features stunning, full-color reproductions of nearly twenty photographs by each artist. An introductory essay by Katherine A. Bussard examines the development of personal photography in relation to the works presented. Insightful entries on each artist and a complete list of works in the exhibition are also included."--Jacket

Pictures from home - Larry Sultan( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1992 to wide critical acclaim,?Pictures From Home? is Larry Sultan?s pendant to his parents. Sultan returned home to Southern California periodically in the 1980s and the decade-long sequence he presents moves between registers, combining contemporary photographs with film stills from home movies, fragments of conversation, Sultan?s own writings and other memorabilia. The result is a narrative collage in which the boundary between the documentary and the staged becomes increasingly porous
