The way home : ending homelessness in America by Jodi Cobb( Book )

4 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book documents the plight of homeless men, women, and children in cities and towns across America - and points the way to lasting solutions." "The safety net that once protected the vulernable and aided the ill has suffered from many pressures, but has not disappeared. Programs exist, and people of energy and commitment are working to construct new ways of confronting and overcoming this persistent crisis." "To end homelessness in America, we must begin to see "the homeless" as individual human beings, rather than a faceless, nameless crowd." "With this necessity to see in mind, Philip Brookman, Curator of Photography and Media Arts at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., and Jane Slate Siena of the Getty Conservation Institute have invited 13 eminent photographers - some artists, some photojournalists - to meet homeless citizens in their makeshift dwelling places, and in various forms of interim and permanent housing." "Nan Roman's essay provides context for these images, describing the present state of the crisis and offering concrete, practical solutions, while Tipper Gore's foreword offers a personal perspective. The photographers' captions describe their impressions of the situations they recorded and poems, some by members of the Writers' Forum at the Miriam's Kitchen Breakfast Program in Washington, D.C., infuse the book with the voices of homeless men and women."--Jacket
Helios : Eadweard Muybridge in a time of change by Philip Brookman( Book )

9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Photographer Eadweard Muybridge was above all an innovator who played a groundbreaking role in the creative transformation of late nineteenth-century American and European culture. He pushed the limits of existing technology between 1850 and the dawn of the twentieth century, a time of rapid social and political change. Inspired by a complex set of goals that were artistic, scientific, commercial, and above all personal in nature, Muybridge reinterpreted the grand landscape traditions of photography, surveyed the construction of Western railroads, depicted the growth of the Pacific Coast of the United States, and documented the Modoc War and Central American agriculture. He then developed the ability to freeze photographic sequences describing human and animal locomotion, and reanimated these in some of the first projected motion pictures. Muybridge helped alter and expand our understanding of the world, yet the full complexity of his art is little known today

Essential modernism by Philip Brookman( Book )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Never before have the conditions of life changed so swiftly and enormously as they have changed for mankind in the last fifty years. We have been carried along ... [and] we are only now beginning to realize the force and strength of the storm of change that has come upon us."" "When British visionary author H.G. Wells wrote this passage in 1933 he knew he was living in a time of absolute transformation. Essential Modernism chronicles how artists, responding to the violence of World War I and the unprecedented modernization of the world, tried to change society." "Written as a guide to the Corcoran Gallery of Art's presentation of the groundbreaking exhibition Modernism: Designing a New World 1914-1939, Essential Modernism brings into focus the foundation and meaning of Modernism - the defining movement of twentieth-century art, design, and culture. It clarifies many of the ideas and principles underpinning the aesthetic and visual appearance of much art, architecture, graphic and product design, film, and theater design created in the first half of the twentieth century." "Illustrated with almost 100 images from the exhibition, Essential Modernism tells the story of how artists reacted to the unprecedented violence and destruction they had witnessed during World War I; and their experimental search for ways to create a better world through art."--Jacket

Hospice : a photographic inquiry by Hospice( Book )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hospice is health care that provides for the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of dying patients; its goal is not to cure, but to ease the patient's passage out of life. However, many Americans are unaware of the choices hospice offers. In an effort to foster a broader understanding of hospice, the Corcoran Gallery of Art and the National Hospice Foundation created this remarkable book. They commissioned a series of visual essays from five well-known photographers - challenging each of them to express through his or her art the essence of hospice care. The resulting book is an extraordinary document: it draws the reader inside the full intensity and revelation of the hospice experience. Marilyn Webb's opening essay describes the little-known history of hospice and the increasingly humane attitude toward dying that is now emerging in America. Jane Livingston compares hospice and the art of photography, and Philip Brookman interviews the five artists. A detailed bibliography assists readers seeking hospice resources. But it is the photographers who guide us into the heart of the hospice world. Here are Nan Goldin's penetrating chronicle of patients in New York hospice care; Jack Radcliffe's frank look at the bond between patients and caregivers; luminous meditations on the experiences of hospice patients by Sally Mann; composite images by Kathy Vargas that evoke loss and remembrance; and Jim Goldberg's poignant examination of his own father's death. Woven through these portfolios are the words of the patients, the families, and the care providers. For those who seek to understand hospice, this book creates an unforgettable portrayal; for those already a part of that world, it is a moving testament

Robert Frank : London/Wales by Robert Frank( Book )

8 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1951 and early 1952, Robert Frank visited London - "I liked the light. I liked the fog."--And set out to photograph the unique atmosphere of the city. He juxtaposed money and work, wealth and poverty, creating a dynamic photographic project that has never been shown before in its entirety. In March 1953, Frank traveled to the town of Careau, in Wales, to photograph coal miners." "In Robert Frank: London/Wales, Frank returns for the first time to these old negatives. The volume explores a stylistic transformation in his work, a period of development that saw his photography move from an innovative romanticism to a highly charged, metaphorical realism. These two consecutive projects set the stage for his truly groundbreaking documentary, The Americans, completed just a few years later."--Jacket
