What is a photograph? by Carol Squiers( Book )

10 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Organized by ICP Curator Carol Squiers, 'What Is a Photograph?' explores the intense creative experimentation in photography that has occurred since the 1970s. Conceptual art introduced photography into contemporary art making, using the medium in ways that challenged it artistically, intellectually, and technically, and broadened the notion of what a photograph could be in art. A new generation of artists began an equally rigorous but more aesthetically adventurous analysis, which probed photography itself - from the role of light, color, composition, to materiality and the subject. 'What Is a Photograph?' brings together these artists, who reinvented photography

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

9 editions published in 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 369 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

The body at risk : photography of disorder, illness, and healing by Carol Squiers( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Body at Risk explores the ways that photojournalists and social documentarians have visualized the human subject as a site of both good and ill health. Author Carol Squiers brings together ten significant groups of photographs made over the last one hundred years that show how bodies have been affected by various forces, from labor to war, and how those forces have affected human health."--Jacket
Weegee : murder is my business by Weegee( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawn from the International Center of Photography's archives, this book highlights the fascinating career of Weegee, one of New York's quintessential press photographers. For a decade between 1935 and 1946, Weegee made a name for himself snapping crime scenes, victims and perpetrators. Armed with a Speed Graphic camera and a police-band radio, Weegee often beat the cops to the story, determined to sell his pictures to the sensation-hungry tabloids. His stark black-and-white photos were often lurid and unsettling. Yet, as this book shows, they were also brimming with humanity

Laurie Simmons : in and around the house, photographs, 1976-78 by Laurie Simmons( Book )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A seminal book by one of the first artists of the Pictures generation to use set-up photography to create images with intensely psychological subtexts. it features the first comprehensive survey of Simmons' early black-and-white photographs, the importance of which Carol Squiers describes in her essay: "What Simmons did with domestic subjects was unique... Her use and manipulation of miniaturized dolls, objects, and interiors gave the photographs the abstracted quality of a dream, which was markedly different from the cool... images of other artists. By using objects that so clearly evoked childhood, she was also more directly referencing personal memory." This previously unpublished early work put Laurie Simmons on the forefront of a new generation of artists, predominantly women, whose use of the media as subject began a new dialogue on contemporary art. In Simmons' own words, "Re-examining the pictures, I became aware of a potential narrative and structure that hadn't been obvious to me during the years that I was shooting. I actually began to see a house with many rooms, as well as indoor and outdoor space. I also began to think about a female presence, both real and implied, and to formally locate a space that didn't exist in my mind originally when I was exploring the territory with my camera. The project that you see here took shape when hundreds of long-forgotten images were revisited with the notion of creating a home within In and Around the House." -- back cover inset

What is a photograph? by Carol Squiers( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few people ask, "What is a painting? A drawing? A sculpture?". But the medium of photography, especially since the 1970s, has been constantly changing as technological developments allow for endless experimentation--until the very definition of a photograph becomes ripe for debate. Beginning with the waning days of conceptual art, this book presents a wide variety of artists - among them James Welling, Christopher Williams, Marco Breuer, Alison Rossiter, Sigmar Polke, and Gerhard Richter - who have reconsidered and reinvented the role of light, color, composition, materiality, and subject in the art of photography. Brought together for the first time in book form, these individuals have found new ways of implementing both analog and digital technology, in many cases creating hybrid works that open up new possibilities for today's artists. Filled with brilliant color reproductions, this volume not only traces the many strands of experimentation that have developed out of conceptual art, but also encourages dialogue on the continuing experimentation that is occurring as photography continues to evolve within the analog and digital worlds.0Exhibition: International Center of Photography, New York, USA (24.01.-04.05.2014)
