Eugène Atget : unknown Paris by David Harris( Book )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the first quarter of the twentieth century the short stocky figure of photographer Eugene Atget was a familiar sight in Paris. From 1898 until his death in 1927, Atget took approximately five thousand negatives in the city, systematically documenting its historic core; its building and monuments, its ancient streets and civic spaces, its public parks and gardens. Atget chose not to represent a particular site by a single, definitive photograph; instead he consistently produced sequences of interrelated images to create a cumulative portrait of each setting." "Featuring 240 of Atget's photographs - only a few of which have previously been published - this book examines Atget's approach to photography by studying these sequences; his pictures of an individual building, a street an intersection, the quays along the river Seine, and a neighborhood. Assembling these images into coherent groups, Unknown Paris displays the direct and integral relationship between the photographer's working method and his subject matter in turn revealing the distinctive character of old Paris itself."--BOOK JACKET

Eadweard Muybridge and the photographic panorama of San Francisco, 1850-80 by David Harris( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in French and English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Great care has been taken in the reproduction of all the panoramas, so as to preserve as much as possible the intent behind them, often lost when reproduced piecemeal or on separate pages. Until now, very few have ever been adequately reproduced, owing to the complexities of presenting in book form panoramas of such detail and length. This is the first work to attempt this systematically, and to make possible a comparison of all the major creations in this thirty-year history of San Francisco's photographic panoramas, a period of the rise of a city and photography alike

Shards of America by Phil Bergerson( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The minutiae of daily life - paintings and movie posters, dime-store novels and daily newspapers, figurines and mannequins, decals and stenciled graffiti - here are laid out as artifacts pointing to a bigger vision of the world as we know it. Patriotism, consumerism, censorship, nostalgia for a simpler past coupled with a desire for a less complicated present ... touching on all these themes, Bergerson's quietly ironic but empathetic tone encourages the reader to imagine how our own ordinary surroundings might appear in a hundred or more years' time."--Jacket
