Bystander : a history of street photography by Colin Westerbeck( Book )

29 editions published between 1993 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 1,096 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This landmark book chronicles the development of a kind of photography that is created out of the energy and chance juxtapositions found in everyday life on the street. Street photography is at the heart of what makes photography unique. An unprecedented study that is the first history of this tradition ever published, Bystander explores street photography through a discussion of the medium's masters - Atget, Stieglitz, Strand, Cartier-Bresson, Brassai, Kertesz, Evans, Levitt, Frank, Arbus, Winogrand, and many others - and reveals along the way much about the craft and creative process of photography. Profusely illustrated with the work of more than eighty photographers, the book is composed of four parts separated by lively folios of pictures. Each part discusses a different era - from the early days of the medium in nineteenth-century Europe, to America in the late twentieth century - and devotes entire chapters to the key figures of that period
On the art of fixing a shadow : one hundred and fifty years of photography by Sarah Greenough( Book )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 968 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a catalogue of an exhibition held at the National Gallery of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. At this sesquicentennial celebration, it has been our intention in both the exhibition and the catalogue to present and analyze those photographs that, regardless of why they were made, seem the most visually significant. Limiting ourselves, for the most part, to American and European photographers, we have attempted to chart the development of an understanding of photography as a pictorial device. - Introduction

Yasuhiro Ishimoto : a tale of two cities by Colin Westerbeck( Book )

13 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Large as is the range of Ishimoto's tale of two cities, in recent years another side of his sensibility has come to the fore in very subtle studies of rotting leaves, footprints in snow, cloud formations, and wind-ruffled water at his feet. Now 77, Ishimoto is revealing a meditative dimension that has brought him recognition as a "Person of Cultural Distinction" in Japan and serious regard worldwide for his artistic achievements
Chuck Close, photographer by Colin Westerbeck( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Documenting Chuck Close's vital engagement with photography over the course of many decades, this book offers the first full critical assessment of his work behind the camera. Beautifully produced, this unique volume traces Close's ambitious innovations in a medium he never intended to master. It presents the full spectrum of Close's camera work, from early Polaroids to large-format composites, studio maquettes, holograms, daguerreotypes, and Woodburytypes. The illustrations vary from Close's signature portraits and self-portraits to nudes, flowers, and delightful outtakes from sessions with celebrity subjects. With a penetrating essay by Colin Westerbeck and a fascinating conversation with the artist about his personal vision of photography, this book is destined to become an indispensable publication on one of the art world's most talented and intriguing figures. It will offer new insights into Close's creative process as well as his courageous and resourceful forays into a uniquely modern medium that he has made his very own."--Publisher's description

Vivian Maier : the color work by Vivian Maier( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first definitive monograph of color photographs by American street photographer Vivian Maier.00Photographer Vivian Maier's allure endures even though many details of her life continue to remain a mystery. Her story-the secretive nanny-photographer who became a pioneer photographer-has only been pieced together from the thousands of images she made and the handful of facts that have surfaced about her life. Vivian Maier: The Color Work is the largest and most highly curated published collection of Maier's full-color photographs to date.00With a foreword by world-renowned photographer Joel Meyerowitz and text by curator Colin Westerbeck, this definitive volume sheds light on the nature of Maier's color images, examining them within the context of her black-and-white work as well as the images of street photographers with whom she clearly had kinship, like Eugene Atget and Lee Friedlander. With more than 150 color photographs, most of which have never been published in book form, this collection of images deepens our understanding of Maier, as its immediacy demonstrates how keen she was to record and present her interpretation of the world around her

A democracy of imagery by Colin Westerbeck( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Colin Westerbeck's criterion in choosing the 100 photographs published here was to seek out underappreciated work by great photographers and great work by underappreciated photographers. These 100 prints have all been drawn from the many thousands in the inventory of Howard Greenberg Gallery. Westerbeck was particularly drawn to Greenberg's wide-ranging taste in both American and European photography of the twentieth century. The resulting book bears the name A Democracy of Imagery because Westerbeck believes all the works it contains should be considered equal. Each has been selected for its individuality -- indeed, its idiosyncrasy -- rather than its similarity to or compatibility with other images. In this spirit, works chosen for commentary are discussed individually. Westerbeck explores the background stories of particular photographs, as opposed to generalizing about the photos as a whole
