Paul Strand : master of modern photography by Paul Strand( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through his amazing variety of innovative images, photographer Paul Strand (1890-1976) played a crucial role in establishing the medium's significance as a modern art form. Celebrating the recent acquisition of the core print collection of the Paul Strand Archive by the Philadelphia Museum of Art, this stunning book comprehensively reassesses the artist's career in light of current scholarship and critical debates about his work. Featuring more than 250 plates, the catalogue includes many of Strand's iconic early photos such as 'Wall Street' and 'Blind Woman' alongside lesser-known master prints from all phases of his career. Discussing the artist's prolific career, from his emergence in Alfred Stieglitz's circle in New York in the early part of the century to his years spent working abroad in Mexico, France, Italy and Africa, Peter Barberie positions Strand as a remarkably independent modernist whose priorities shifted at several points and were often counter to prevailing trends. Amanda N. Bock focuses on the years 1930-50, when Strand thoroughly explored the role of politics in modern art and relentlessly sought to identify the greater purposes of photography and filmmaking. The edited transcript from a roundtable discussion among key scholars touches upon many aspects of Strand's various projects from the 1930s to the 1960s
Rineke Dijkstra : portraits by Rineke Dijkstra( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and German and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rineke Dijkstra took photographs - sometimes over long periods of time - of boys and girls of different nationalities on the beach, the development of an adolescent Bosnian girl refugee at intervals of two years, young mothers shortly after the birth of their children, young Israelis before and after their recruitment into the army, young bullfighters after the fight ... Dijkstra's "classical" portraits register the changes brought about in the faces and bodily attitudes of young people by an important experience or crucial event."--Jacket

4 editions published in 2005 in German and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Peter Hujar : a retrospective by Peter Hujar( Book )

4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Peter Hujar, a New Yorker of Ukrainian descent, died of AIDS in 1987. He recorded the world in astonishing portraits of cows, sheep, and geese in the country, dogs in the studio, the sea, the city, and above all his fellow human beings, many of whom have since won fame: Susan Sontag, John Waters, Divine, William S. Borroughs, Candy Darling, Robert Wilson, David Wojnarowicz, Paul Thek, and many men, in the nude, half-dressed, sleeping, posing, tumescent. People, animals, landscapes - Peter Hujar approached them all with great respect and a perfect sense of balance between near and far. His subjects face us with supremely dignified singularity, with loneliness at times, and at times in an aura of dauntless and "splendid isolation."

Provoke : between protest and performance : photography in Japan 1960-1975 by Art Institute of Chicago( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The short-lived Japanese magazine Provoke is recognized as a major achievement in world photography of the postwar era, uniting the country's most contentious examples of protest photography, vanguard fine art, and critical theory of the late 1960s and early 70s in only three issues overall. Provoke is accordingly treated here as a model synthesis of the complexities and overlapping uses of photography in postwar Japan. The writing and images by Provoke's members -- critic Koji Taki, poet Takahiko Okada, photographers Takuma Nakahira, Yutaka Takanashi, Daido Moriyama -- were suffused with the tactics developed in some Japanese protest books which made use of innovative graphic design and provocatively "poor" materials. Recording live actions, photography in these years was also an expressive form suited to emphasize and critique the mythologies of modern life with a wide spectrum of performing artists such as Nobuyoshi Araki, Koji Enokura and Jiro Takamatsu. This catalogue accompanies the first exhibition ever to be held about the magazine and its creators and focuses on its historical context. It covers the preliminary period leading to its first and the aftermath following its last issue. Provoke takes shape as a strongly interpretative explanation of currents in Japanese art and society at a moment of historical collapse and renewal

Trade : commodities, communication and consciousness by Thomas Seelig( Book )

9 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Whether it's globalization, the New Economy, or young protesters in Seattle, trade is obviously on everyone's mind these days. This book offers a unique and fresh look at the concepts and realities of trade today. Images by photographers from all over the world add up to a fascinating panoramic view of a world shaped by trade: the artifice, glitz, and glamour of shopping, the sprawling metropolises in the East and the West, the lavish displays of power in the headquarters of multinational companies, the inventiveness and the desperation of people in the Third World, global traffic and high-tech communication. All are there in this stimulating, enchanting, and haunting selection of photographs. The striking, and sometimes threatening, images are complemented by a collage of text quotes on trade, ranging from pop culture to philosophy and anthropology. The compilation of texts offers trenchant insights, powerful rants, amusing anecdotes, contradictory at times, but always incisive. Like the images, this collage offers the reader a dizzying array of possible perspectives and thoughts on trade. Instead of purveying a single dogmatic ideology, the book intends to show the astonishingly manifold facets of the phenomenon "trade." "Trade" offers the readers an opportunity to discover playfully their own viewpoint. It combines images and texts to create an entertaining and provocative view of life at the beginning of the millennium." "Featuring: Massimo Vitali, Andreas Gursky, Merry Alpern, Allan Sekula, Thomas Demand, Fischli & Weiss, Todd Eberle, Marc Rader, Boris Mikhailov, Henry Bond, among others."--BOOK JACKET

Life & afterlife in Benin( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Photographers such as Sebastien Mehinto (otherwise known as Pigeon) often travelled miles by bicycle to find their clients in far-flung villages, and sometimes developed their exquisitely crafted photographs in makeshift darkrooms constructed in the bush. Marked by dark dramas and deep mysticisms, their portraits record a people caught between a pre-colonial past and a post-colonial future. For many of the people in the photographs it would be their first and last encounter with a

Zoe Leonard : photographs, Fotomuseum Winterthur by Zoe Leonard( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Photographer Zoe Leonard practices a type of cerebral roaming combined with carefully considered observation. For more than 20 years she has criss-crossed nature and culture, cityscapes and museums, always searching for signs that say something about structures, about natural and cultural conditions and the contradictions, parallels and connections between them. Leonard's photographs of anatomical wax figures, fashion shows, trees and fences present figures in sparse black-and-white images that open up visual fields of thought and reveal within them our visible world--the concrete and established structures that make up our reality. Leonard first created an international stir at the Documenta 9 exhibition in Kassel, Germany, in 1992, when she placed black-and-white photographs of female genitalia in the context of a male-dominated museum. Since then, the political aspects of her work have formed a backdrop for her constant struggle with shape, imagery and the union of symbols and content."--Publisher description
