Reflections in a looking glass : a centennial celebration of Lewis Carroll, photographer by Morton N Cohen( Book )

6 editions published in 1998 in English and Spanish and held by 570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beloved as the author of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass, two of the most popular children's stories of all time, the Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (alias Lewis Carroll) was also one of the great photographers of children of the nineteenth century." "The photographs in this richly illustrated book - a number of them previously unpublished - reflect Carroll's lifelong fascination with children and their world. These remarkable portraits of his "child friends" were made between 1856 and 1880, during the height of the Victorian Age in England - many of them at Carroll's rooms at Oxford, where he was Mathematical Lecturer. Also included in this volume are Carroll's photographs of friends, family, and luminaries of the day, as well as the only four nude portraits that have come to light." "The central text, by Carroll biographer and leading scholar Morton N. Cohen, discusses the role of photography in Carroll's vast and diverse creative output. Cohen adds annotated captions and excerpts from Carroll's diaries and other writings to provide unique insight into the creative genius that produced the Alice books and other children's favorites."--Jacket

The Upshaws of County Line : an American family by Richard S Orton( )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Guss, Felix, and Jim Upshaw founded the community of County Line in the 1870s in northwest Nacogdoches County, in deep East Texas. As with hundreds of other relatively autonomous black communities created at that time, the Upshaws sought a safe place to raise their children and create a livelihood during Reconstruction and Jim Crow Texas. In the late 1980s photographer Richard Orton visited County Line for the first time and became aware of a world he did not know existed as a white man. He went down the rabbit hole, so to speak, and met some remarkable people there who changed his life. The more than 50 duotone photographs and text convey the contemporary experience of growing up in a "freedom colony." Covering a period of twenty-five years, photographer Richard Orton juxtaposes his images with text from people who grew up in and have remained connected to their birthplace. Thad Sitton's foreword sets the community in historical context and Roy Flukinger points out the beauty of the documentary photographs. This book should appeal to anyone interested in American or Texas history, particularly the history of African Americans in the South in the aftermath of the Civil War. The book should also be of interest to anyone with an appreciation for documentary photography, including students and teachers of photography"--Publisher's website
The Gernsheim collection, Harry Ransom center by Roy Flukinger( Book )

13 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pulished to coincide with a landmark exhibition staged by the Harry Ransom Center at The University of Texas at Austin, which owns the collection, this volume presents masterpieces of the Gernsheim Collection, from photography's beginnings to the mid-twentieth century along with lesser-known images of great historical significance. Each full-page image is accompanied by an extensive annotation in which Roy Flukinger describes the photograph's place in the evolution of photography and also within the Gernsheim Collection. Flukinger also provides an enlightening introduction and text in which he traces the Gernsheims' passionate careers as collectors and pioneering historians of Photography, showing how their untiring efforts significantly contributed to the acceptance of photography as a fine art and as a field worthy of intellectual inquiry. Appreciations of the Gernsheim Collection by Alison Nordstrom and Mark Haworth-Booth confirm its singular importance as a collection of outstanding breadth and depth in the history of photography.

Proof : photographs from four generations of a Texas family by Byrd M Williams( )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Byrd Williams Collection at the University of North Texas contains more than 10,000 prints and 300,000 negatives, accumulated by four generations of Texas photographers, all named Byrd Moore Williams. Beginning in the 1880s in Gainesville, the four Byrds photographed customers in their studios, urban landscapes, crime scenes, Pancho Villa's soldiers, televangelists, and whatever aroused their unpredictable and wide-ranging curiosity. When Byrd IV sat down to choose a selection from this dizzying array, he came face to face with the nature of mortality and memory, his own and his family's. In some cases these photos are the only evidence remaining that someone lived and breathed on this earth"--Amazon

The Texas Hill Country : a photographic adventure by Michael H Marvins( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Like many Texans, Michael H. Marvins has been making regular pilgrimages to the Hill Country for much of his life. Traveling the back roads of the Texas Hill Country, cameras always poised for action, Marvins has captured the excitement of small-town rodeos, savored the mesquite-smoked atmosphere of local eateries, observed the daily lives of people on the land, and admired the scenic beauty of the landscape and its natural denizens. Most important, he has captured his impressions with the skilled eye of a master photographer. Popular Houston Chronicle columnist Joe Holley opens The Texas Hill Country by highlighting the many qualities that draw Marvins--and so many of the rest of us--to the Hill Country. Next, Roy Flukinger, senior curator of photography at the University of Texas' Harry Ransom Center, discusses Marvins's unique photographic vision and the fresh ways in which he helps us see this popular region. But the principal focus in The Texas Hill Country: A Photographic Adventure centers on Marvins's artful images, inviting readers to share his unique perspectives on this enchanting and popular region. He takes us with him on leisurely backcountry drives and into the laughter and swirl of dance halls. His lens embraces the people, the land, and the culture that keep so many Texans--and would-be Texans--coming back to the Hill Country again and again
