The exhibition in the Levy Galerie is Peter Blake's first solo exhibition in a German gallery." "The works on view date from 1956 to the present day, with an emphasis on his collages and illustrations.

The third volume in the Skira Photography series serving as a major reference in the field. The third volume (19411980) of Skiras History of Photography series focuses on the years marked by the revolution of colour that meant the start of a radical change in the very nature of amateur photography. At the same time, through photojournalism photography became a mirror of society and a tool for attempts to change it. This monograph traces the historical evolution of photography, focusing on artists such as Helen Levitt, Weegee, Robert Doisneau, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Josef Sudek, William Klein, Robert Frank, Richard Avedon, Shomei Tomatsu, William Eugene Smith, Gerhard Richter, Bernhard and Hilla Becher, Ugo Mulas, Ed Ruscha, Larry Clark, just to name a few. The essays provide an in-depth discussion of some of the primary themes of the historical period: the evolution of documentary photography between 1950 and 1980, the revolution of colour and the relationship between photography and conceptual art

Beginning with the Milano. Ritratti di fabbriche cycle from the late 1970s, this book follows the evolution of Basilico?s artistic language? amidst documentary rigor and subjective interpretation? from his legendary pictures taken in France and in major ports across Europe in the 1980s to the 1991 series devoted to Beirut which had just left behind its long civil war, up to his final work on the renewal of the Porta Nuova district in Milan. The main core of works in this publication consists of the 50 portraits of cities which the artist took over the course of his career: Paris, Madrid, Berlin, Moscow, San Francisco, Istanbul, Rio de Janeiro, and Shanghai intermingle and dialogue through Basilico?s impassioned and contemplative gaze.

"The second volume in the Skira Photography series serving as a major reference in the field. The fifty years of artistic and mass photography taken into consideration in this volume are unquestionably the most important in the twentieth century. The acceleration of technological progress, the advent of the era of the machine and the metropolis, the epoch-making economic crisis, the dramatic aftermath of the collapse of the old nineteenth-century order in Europe with political upheavals, wars, revolutions, and dictatorships, the first appearance of a mass society capable of expressing cultures and systems of communication in line with its needs: these are the most obvious stages of a history that was also recorded as it happened, in various forms and media. Among these, key importance certainly attaches to photography. This richly illustrated book—complete with synoptic tables and glossary—offers a wide-ranging survey of this era that will delight and inform a constantly growing audience."--Publisher description
