Police pictures : the photograph as evidence by Sandra S Phillips ( Book )
6 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 368 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

A different kind of order : the ICP Triennial by ICP Triennial of Photography and Video ( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The exhibition sketches the contours of the new visual and social territory in which photography finds itself today. A number of key themes serve as guidelines that link the works in the exhibition: (i) Artist as aggregator identifies one of the main aesthetic offshoots of the digital image environment: the present-day descendants of the "image scavengers" of the 1980s who are now busy plundering and reorganizing found, online photographs into highly personal, web-based archives. (ii) The resurgence of collage is evident in works that combine photographic fragments, digital images, paint, three-dimensional objects, and audio and video material to blast open and reconfigure the space of the photograph in unprecedented ways. (iii) At a time when all manner of power structures are being called into question, mapping has become a renewed subject of artistic inquiry - part of a wider fascination with the power of ordering systems that has emerged in response to the dematerialized disorder of the Internet's environment (iv) The Internet's dissolution of geographic distance has spurred the development of new forms of community, allowing artists to explore new forms of connection, collaboration, and multiple authorship that do not depend on physical proximity

What is a photograph? by Carol Squiers ( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Organized by ICP Curator Carol Squiers, 'What Is a Photograph?' will explore 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

Weegee : murder is my business by Weegee ( Book )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 107 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

What is a photograph? ( Book )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 9 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)
