Specimens and marvels : William Henry Fox Talbot and the invention of photography by William Henry Fox Talbot( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This publication focuses on Talbot's ambitions for the mystical blend of science and art he termed "photogenic drawing" (later called" photography"), as outlined in his classic volume The Pencil of Nature. In addition to familiar icons from photography's beginnings, such as Talbot's cameraless photograms of plant forms and lace, and his photographs of Lacock Abbey, the twelfth-century stone building in which he lived and worked, many unseen and little-known experiments with calotypes will be featured in this invaluable new volume on the life and work of Talbot. Lively and insightful texts offer new critical perspectives on Talbot's significance in the history of image-making, the illustrated book, and the history of ideas."--BOOK JACKET
Exploding into life by Dorothea Lynch( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1978, thirty-four-year-old Dorothea Lynch discovered she had breast cancer. In an attempt to gain control of the disease and communicate her experience to others, she asked her longtime companion, Eugene Richards, to visually document her struggle while she kept a written diary. Exploding Into Life is the synthesis of their two experiences. What begins as their need to know the facts about cancer becomes, as the years pass, a highly personal inquiry into what it means to be alive, to face the uncertain future, and to accept death. The book that results is a testament to a woman's strength, intelligence, and sensitivity as she confronts cancer, a medical care system, and cultural attitudes towards illness and mortality"--Eugene Richards' website, viewed on December 1, 2014

The non-conformists : Martin Parr by Martin Parr( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and French and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Non-Conformists' features Martin Parr's first major body of work from the mid-1970s, published here for the first time in book form. A wonderful and charming surprise for Parr enthusiasts and fans of traditional reportage, this body of black-and-white imagery predates the cutting colour work that earned him his fame in the 1980s. In 1975, fresh out of art school, Martin Parr found poor footing in the London photography scene, so he moved to the picturesque Yorkshire Pennine mill town of Hebden Bridge. Over a period of five years, he documented the town in photographs, showing in particular the aspects of traditional life that were beginning to decline. Susie Parr, whom he had met in Manchester, joined him in documenting a year in the life of a small Methodist chapel, together with its farming community. In words and pictures, the Parrs vividly and affectionately document cobbled streets, flat-capped mill workers, hardy gamekeepers, henpecked husbands, and jovial shop owners
