Face : the new photographic portrait by William A Ewing( Book )

19 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 766 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: This groundbreaking publication announces the death of the conventional portrait. In an age when we are bombarded with flawless images of youthful beauty, when rejuvenation is available through a jar of cream or a scalpel, artists and photographers seek to portray the face in new ways. Through a variety of techniques, including computer manipulation, photomontage, and retouching, the artists present their new portraits. They replace clarity with blur, the split-second with the elastic moment, questioning the notion of a fixed identity, of universality of expression, of what constitutes beauty. Whether Cindy Sherman's disquieting disguises, Gillian Wearing's masked self-portrait, LawickMuller's composite portraits of couples, or Orlan's disturbing experiments with cosmetic surgery, these faces demand attention. 260 illustrations, 165 in color

Le Corbusier and the power of photography by Le Corbusier( Book )

19 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The influence and development of Le Corbusier was inextricably connected to the rise of the twentieth century's central form of popular media: photography. The Swiss-born architect of his generation. Long before many in his field, he harnessed the power of the photographic image to define and disseminate his persona, his ideas and his buildings around the world. In this, he was far ahead of his time. Coinciding with the 125th anniversary of Le Corbusier's birth and the 100th anniversary of the foundation of his first studio in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, this book brings together contributions by leading scholars and experts on the architect to explore Le Corbusier's use of and engagement with photography. From the early pictures he took ass a young traveling architect and snapshots of his surroundings, to his hands-on approach to the graphic design of his influential publications, and large-scale photographic images and collages for architectural spaces, this collection of insights into Le Corbusier's photographic eye reveals the breadth and depth of his visual and spatial innovation, as well as offering candid, personal, artistic and often unexpected images of the man himself. Le Corbusier's connection with photography has long been noted. This is the first publication devoted solely to the special relationship between the architect and the most important form of media expression in the modern era. Completed by a reference section that includes an extensive chronology and bibliography, this significant contribution to the literature on Le Corbusier offers many fresh perspectives on his creative genius and the art of timeless design."--Jacket

Coming into fashion : a century of photography at Condé Nast by Nathalie Herschdorfer( Book )

10 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Condé Nast launched the careers of many great photographers. The discovery of most of the biggest names in fashion photography and the nurturing of their talent into full bloom can rightly be credited to that visionary publisher. Condé Nast himself was gifted at spotting future stars, and, by surrounding himself with the very best and most creative, he placed Vogue magazine, along with other titles such as Glamour, at the forefront of the photographic avant-garde and propelled them to positions of great social and cultural influence. This glorious volume, the result of unprecedented access to the empire's archives, reaches back to 1910 to demonstrate this history of excellence. A constellation of luminaries, legends, and stars, the list of photographers included in this treasury is truly breathtaking. Edward Steichen, Cecil Beaton, Irving Penn, Helmut Newton, Patrick Demarchelier, Ellen von Unwerth, and Mario Testino are just some of the figures who, working with masterful art directors, created a legacy that left its mark on the history of photography and is being built upon in the present day. Chronologically arranged with beautiful reproductions throughout, this stunning volume will become an important addition to the libraries of fashionistas of all ages and tastes."--Publisher description
Ray K. Metzker : light lines by Ray K Metzker( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The goal of this publication is a fully-retrospective presentation of the work of Ray K. Metzker, one of the most important and original American photographers of the second half of the twentieth century. The book, with more than 200 high-quality reproductions, features all aspects of his prolific career of more fifty years - which still shows no sign of abating. Well-known and much-exhibited in the United States, Metzker is inexplicably less well-known outside the States. This retrospective survey encompasses the full range of Metzker's brilliant, constantly evolving, formal language." "Although Metzker has photographed in Europe on several occasions, he has never felt the need to travel to particularly exotic climes for inspiration. He finds it readily at hand in the neighbourhoods where he has lived - principally Chicago and Philadelphia - and increasingly in the domain of nature, though the vegetation he depicts in such original form might well be that of a weed-clogged vacant city lot as much as the vast open plains of the American West."--Jacket
New Swiss architecture by Maya Birke von Graevenitz( Book )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With its Alpine peaks, crystalline lakes, and efficient cities, Switzerland has quietly become a center for sophisticated late modern architecture. Architect Peter Zumthor, a former cabinetmaker, and the firm Herzog & de Meuron produced a series of buildings at home and abroad that has paved the way for a younger generation of architects who fuse the country's traditional materials with high-tech new tools and innovative construction methods

Carlo Valsecchi : lumen by Carlo Valsecchi( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in 3 languages and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Valsecchi alternates between the near and far, between precise figuration and poetic abstraction. Devoid of humn presence, his large-format photographs often take unexpected vantage points, which initially destabilize our perception, then engage with the imagery. Valsecchi, while within the German tradition of the industrial landscape, has found his own register, towards the monochrome with a soft palette and nuanced chromatic scale. His approach evokes the pictorial grandeur of Abstract Expressionism.--Publisher

Time's assignation by Laura Letinsky( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Chicago-based photographer Laura Letinsky (born 1962) used Polaroid Type 55 film as part of her working process until the film was discontinued in 2008, exploring focus, composition, exposure and light in black-and-white instant photographs as she worked up to the larger-scale color works for which she is best known. Like sketches, the photographs in this volume--small, slow and raw--reveal a process of asking. This way or that? More or less? Now or then? A Polaroid is a fugitive thing, beautiful in its decomposition, subject to change as much as the still life compositions of ripe fruits and nibbled foods that Letinsky arranges. Time's Assignation collects Polaroids taken by the photographer in her studio between 1997 and 2008, now stabilized, their high-key tones slipping into white veils and darker tones metallized in hues of taupe, gold and gunmetal gray. These photographs offer a record of Letinsky's working process, but are a compelling body of photographic work in their own right, exploring time's unrelenting progression in their subject matter and materiality."--Amazon

Le Corbusier und die Macht der Fotografie : [... erscheint im Rahmen der Ausstellug Construire l'mage: Le Corbusier et la photographi, die anlässlich des 125. Geburtstages von LE Corbusier, Ehrenbürger der Stadt La Chaux-de-Fonds, realisiert wird] by Le Corbusier( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in German and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der geniale Architekt und Entwerfer Le Corbusier (1887-1965) erkannte die Wichtigkeit klarer graphischer Gestaltungskonzepte und sorgte dafür, dass seine Arbeiten bereits im Planungsstadium ausführlich fotografisch dokumentiert wurden. Anschließend kümmerte er sich dann persönlich um die Publikation zahlreicher Bücher, die unterschiedlichstes Material seines Schaffens einem breiten Publikum optimal aufbereitet zugänglich machen sollten. Denn gerade im Hinblick auf die suggestive Kraft der Fotografie, die er bei seiner Arbeit gekonnt einzusetzen verstand, war Le Corbusier seiner Zeit weit voraus. Der prächtige Band öffnet den Blick für einen bislang weniger bekannten, aber doch so wesentlichen Aspekt seines Schaffens
Construire l'image : Le Corbusier et la photographie : [exposition, La Chaux-de-Fonds, Musée des beaux-arts, 30 septembre 2012-13 janvier 2013 et Bruxelles, Centre international pour la ville, l'architecture et le paysage, CIVA, 26 avril-6 octobre 2013] by Le Corbusier( Book )

9 editions published in 2012 in French and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Le Corbusier avait bien compris les multiples pouvoirs de la photographie, jouant sur un vaste répertoire iconographique pour illustrer ses écrits et ses expositions. Mais il avait surtout saisi l'efficacité de la photographie pour construire son image et diffuser ses idées à travers le monde, notamment grâce aux clichés de photographes aussi talentueux que Lucien Hervé et René Burri. Sont ici reproduits plus de 400 documents : photos promotionnelles, documentaires ou artistiques, photos personnelles souvent inédites, photos de voyages et photos de famille, mais aussi collages monumentaux, documents d'époque et fac-similés de ses publications. On y découvrira en outre la prégnance de l'oeuvre de Le Corbusier sur la photographie contemporaine à travers le regard de Stéphane Couturier, Olivo Barbieri, Thomas Flechtner ou Hiroshi Sugimoto. Réalisé par des spécialistes internationaux de Le Corbusier, ce livre nous fait entrer dans l'oeil de l'architecte et apporte un nouveau point de vue sur sa création."--Page 4 of cover
