Strong hearts : native American visions and voices by Paul Chaat Smith( Book )

4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Strong Hearts, popular visions of American Indians are challenged by artists and writers for whom self-representation is often as much a political as an artistic statement. For example: the darkly emotional scenes staged by Carm Little Turtle; Larry McNeil's metaphorical images of eagle feathers; Zig Jackson's satirical pictures of tourists photographing Indians; Maggie Steber's intimate portrayal of the Wildcat family; images of joy and of pain captured by the children in the "Shooting Back from the Reservation" project; and Jeffrey Thomas's close-up portraits of traditional powwow dancers. Three distinguished authors write about the struggle to overturn stereotyped perceptions of Native Americans. Paul Chaat Smith, cultural critic and writer, compares the nineteenth-century arms race that nearly wiped out his Comanche ancestors to the ways in which the camera has been used to form unyielding perceptions of Native people. Theresa Harlan, curator at the C.N. Gorman Museum, tells how constructed mythologies about Native people threaten not only their cultures but their very survival. Photographer and educator Jolene Rickard regards contemporary Native image-making as "documents of our sovereignty, both politically and spiritually." In their essays, all three show how the photographers in Strong Hearts use the camera to represent Native American people today. One hundred twenty-five images by thirty-four Native American photographers are complemented by poetry that echoes ancient story-telling traditions. From an anonymous Swampy Cree poem capturing the forces of Nature to Luci Tapahonso's narrative "Raisin Eyes"--a humorous, clear-eyed picture of modern love--this collection reveals enduring traditions central to Native American literature." -- Publisher's description

From the heart : the power of photography, a collector's choice by Adam D Weinberg( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Collecting photography can be immensely enjoyable. In fact, it can become an all-consuming passion, as it is for Sondra Gilman, who began collecting in the 1970s when she was "thunderstruck" at an exhibition of Eugène Atget's photographs. After twenty-five rewarding years of building one of the foremost photography collections in America--after "shuddering" when she made that seemingly expensive initial purchase of an Atget--Sondra Gilman is now showing her collection for the first time, offering a new generation the chance to feel the intense contact with visual things that she herself felt at the outset of her life as a collector of photography and continues to experience today. Noted for its uncommon vision and aesthetic clarity within a wide reach of photographic medium, the Sondra Gilman Collection provides an invaluable introduction to the art of photography, to where it has been and where it is going. Within this volume are some of the finest examples of photography produced over the last one hundred years, from the great masters to the newcomers making their mark. The Preface by Mark Haworth-Booth, curator of photography at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London, discusses the important collections of the past. Adam Weinberg, curator of the permanent collection for the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, comments on the Sondra Gilman Collection in particular, providing themes to help understand the images: instantaneous time versus the eternal, appropriating other works into a picture, taking the common and making it strange, the self divided as one sees oneself in relation to others, and he includes pointers on developing a collector's eye. Award-winning novelist Marianne Wiggins plays with the idea of the power of photography. For each of the photographers featured in the book, there is a perceptive thumbnai biograpy and a significant quote by the photographer about the making of pictures. From the Heart: The Power of Photography--A Collector's Choice provides an inside look at the art of photography and sends a message that you too can collect photography
