Most widely held works by Michael Torosian
Manufactured landscapes : the photographs of Edward Burtynsky by Lori Pauli( Book )

7 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 687 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the past twenty-five years, the Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky has been an explorer of unfamiliar places where industrial activity has reshaped the surface of the land. His surveys of the man-made terrain of quarrying, mining, railcutting, recycling, oil refining, and shipbreaking remind us that these incursions into the earth arise out of perennial human needs and desires. Burtynsky's photographs may show us things that are disturbing, but they also have about them an unexpected beauty, subverting our usual notions of the sublime in nature and leading us to a new awareness of the landscape of our times." "Manufactured Landscapes, organized by the National Gallery of Canada, is the first major retrospective of Edward Burtynsky's work. This fully illustrated catalogue of the exhibition includes essays by Lori Pauli, Mark Haworth-Booth, and Kenneth Baker, and an interview with the artist by Michael Torosian."--Jacket
The art of Frederick Sommer : photography, drawing, collage by Frederick Sommer( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book - published in the centenary of the artist's birth - chronicles the extraordinary life and work of Frederick Sommer (1905-1999). One of the great masters and key innovators in the history of photography, Sommer was a complex and creative individual. His work in photography is unconventional and fascinating for its wide range of methodologies and techniques, from his embrace of the large-format camera and exquisite print quality to his use of constructed subjects and synthetic negatives. Sommer also made masterful drawings, watercolors, musical scores, and collages. These varied works are united by the vitality of his creative imagination - his unparalleled ability to explore, stretch, and blend the possibilities of his chosen media." "Sommer began his career as a landscape architect. He purchased his first camera in 1930, while recovering from tuberculosis in Switzerland. Arriving in Arizona in 1931, Sommer abandoned his original profession and began painting and drawing. After meeting Alfred Stieglitz in 1935 and Edward Weston in 1936, Sommer's interest in photography deepened and he quickly became a master of the medium. Other artists who later proved inspirational to Sommer included Precisionist painter and photographer Charles Sheeler, Surrealist artist Max Ernst, and photographer Aaron Siskind." "With an essay by photo historian Keith F. Davis, reproductions of Sommer's diverse works, and a detailed chronology of his life by April M. Watson, The Art of Frederick Sommer describes and documents the full scope of the artist's achievement as a twentieth-century visionary. The book is a revelation for scholars, artists, students, and everyone who appreciates the power of art to transform, transcend, and inspire."--Jacket
Multitude, solitude : the photographs of Dave Heath by Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The work of American photographer Dave Heath (b. 1931) stuns with its emotional potency. Exploring themes of loneliness and alienation in modern society, Heath's photographs depict strangers riding the train, watching a Thanksgiving parade, staring pensively at their dining room table, or kissing on the side of a street. Entirely self-taught, Heath stretches the boundaries of the medium and explores the potential of the photo-narrative, through handmade book maquettes, innovative multimedia slide presentations, and other photographic experimentations. This is the first comprehensive survey of Heath's deeply personal work, focusing on his astounding contributions to black-and-white photography. These images span the first 20 years of his career, 1949 to 1969, and many of them are previously unpublished. Filling a major gap in scholarship, the catalogue surveys the most groundbreaking facets of Heath's creative work and highlights its historical importance. Heath's art is ripe for rediscovery, and this book reaffirms his status as a key figure in 20th-century American photography

Breast cancer : a guide to detection and multidisciplinary therapy by Michael Torosian( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Excluding skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer occurring in women and certainly the most feared. In Breast Cancer: A Guide to Detection and Multidisciplinary Therapy, Michael H. Torosian, MD, and a panel of physicians and clinical researchers critically synthesize the wide variety of treatment options available to create a state-of-the-art reference for the management of breast cancer patients. Writing from a multidisciplinary perspective, these authoritative contributors review in the light of the most recent findings the major clinical aspects of breast cancer, including epidemiology and risk factors, breast imaging, biopsy techniques, breast-conserving surgery and reconstruction, mastectomy, and the latest developments in radiation, hormonal, and chemotherapy. Their expert discussion also addresses special clinical situations (adjuvant chemotherapy, axillary adenopathy as initial presentation, breast cancer during pregnancy, and sarcoma and lymphoma of the breast) and explains current clinical controversies (breast-conserving surgery without radiation therapy, axillary lymph node management, and management of internal mammary lymph nodes). Also spelled out are the potential implications of stem cell transplantation, immunotherapy, and gene therapy for the management of breast cancer patients in the future. Multidisciplinary and clinically invaluable, Breast Cancer: A Guide to Detection and Multidisciplinary Therapy offers physicians and health care personnel an understandable state-of-the-art guide to the best care of breast cancer patients available today
