In the wake of Katrina by Larry Towell( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between September 3-11, 2005, photographer Larry Towell, accompanied by Southern novelist Ace Atkins, traveled along the coast of Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi, documenting the dramatic aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Towell's haunting and poetic landscapes - many of them panoramas - depict the devastation, and the lives of some of the people hit by it. This is an intimate, documentary record of the hurricane's impact and a tribute to human endurance. For his afterword, Ace Atkins revisited the same scenes six months later, reflecting on if and how the communities of the coast have been able to recover

Holy Bible : containing the old and new testaments by Adam Broomberg( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Violence, calamity and the absurdity of war are recorded extensively within The Archive of Modern Conflict, the largest photographic collection of its kind in the world. For their most recent work, Holy Bible, Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin mined this archive with philosopher Adi Ophir's central tenet in mind: that God reveals himself predominantly through catastrophe and that power structures within the Bible correlate with those within modern systems of governance. - The format of Broomberg and Chanarin's illustrated Holy Bible mimics both the precise structure and the physical form of the King James Version. By allowing elements of the original text to guide their image selection, the artists explore themes of authorship, and the unspoken criteria used to determine acceptable evidence of conflict. - Inspired in part by the annotations and images Bertolt Brecht added to his own personal bible, Broomberg and Chanarin's publication questions the clichés at play within the visual representation of conflict
The power book by Jacqueline Hassink( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jacqueline Hassink is a Dutch-born, New York-based conceptual artist whose widely-exhibited photographs deal methodically and precisely with the themes of globalization and economic power. In Table of Power (1996), for instance, Hassink photographed the boardroom tables of Europe's forty largest multinationals while Female Power Stations: Queen Bees (2000) is about the business and domestic environments of leading women executives. The Power Book, the first survey of Hassink's photography, takes the form of a travelogue-the best of her photographs from America, Europe, the Middle East, and Japan are presented chronologically alongside illuminating diary notes and sketches. The Power Book is published to accompany Hassink's major exhibition The Power Show (opening in Amsterdam and Rotterdam before touring internationally).¦¦
Scrapbook( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For centuries, all over the world, scrapbooks have been the most immediate and popular form of visual diary. In Northern Ireland, scrapbooks from the late 1960s through the early 1990s reflected "The Troubles," the regional conflict between Protestants and Catholics. Inspired by these highly individual collaged records of daily life - albums full of newspaper clippings, family photos and personal mementos - acclaimed Belfast-born photographer and filmmaker Donovan Wylie, in collaboration with cultural historian Timothy Prus, has created a non-sectarian version of these scrapbooks, with the benefit of hindsight, that recounts Wylie's own experience of growing up in Belfast in the 70s and 80s, as the son of a mixed marriage (his mother a Catholic, his father a Protestant), during a period when identification with one side of the religious divide was a presumed and sometimes deadly aspect of everyday life."--Jacket

Party! Party!! Party!!! : photographs from Weimar Germany( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing on more than 100 unpublished photographs, including unseen images of some of the most famous and infamous Berlin clubs of the 1920s, Party! Party!! Party!!! depicts the Weimar Republic through the people who partied and the places they partied in--from living rooms and bedrooms to the underground and tourist-filled clubs and music halls of Berlin. The defeat of the German Empire in World War I meant that the newly formed Weimar Republic was all but bankrupt, facing impossible debt and prey to violent revolution from both left and right. The poor were particularly vulnerable. Any new day could bring disease, unemployment or crime. This precariousness of existence gave rise, in some, to a frantic desire to live in the moment--to celebrate, or escape reality. An exploration of decadence, sexuality and indulgence went alongside an innocence of the consequences of fascism or communism. Life, for many, became a kind of feast during a time of plague as Germany in the 1920s conducted a glorious and futileexperiment in the art of partying. Party! Party!! Party!!! is a moving testimony to this celebratory spirit."--
Nein, Onkel : snapshots from another front 1938-1945( Book )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book is a photographic survey of a different, rarely glimpsed side of life in the Nazi Third Reich. It contains reproductions of 347 previously unpublished snapshots, some of them in colour, portraying the fun-loving, sexually incongruous and work-shy elements of the German military machine, and challenging the accepted view of evil men in jackboots. Selected from the extensive collections at the Archive of Modern Conflict, these highly personal photographs come from private albums compiled by ordinary soldiers caught up in the conflagration of World War II. They record not the bloody battles, but the fun snatched by those who would rather be enjoying 40 winks, a spot of country dancing or a roll in the hay than fighting. [By the publisher]

LDN by Antony Cairns( Book )

7 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a second, updated and completely reformatted edition of Antony Cairns's (originally handmade) 2010 book LDN. In this new edition the large 25 x 34cm pages and fine 170 gsm Claro paper draw the viewer into a late-night expedition across a mysterious city of tilted landscapes that flicker past like reflections in the windows of a moving train or car. This is a London whose inhabitants are only hinted at, a London of glaring subterranean lights and inhospitable buildings of indecipherable purpose. The images form an architectural frieze that is tantalisingly familiar yet hard to pinpoint for those who know the city, with an edge that will be recognised by anyone who has experienced the latent tension that permeates the streets in the hours before dawn. A selection of 60 metal prints from the LDN series was exhibited at Les Rencontres D'Arles 2013, and will be on show in the Atelier de Chaudronnerie, Parc des Ateliers, Arles until 1st September 2013. Nominated for Best Photobook 2013 at the 6th International Fotobook Festival, Kassel. Nominated for the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize 2014.--Publisher. From the photographer's website at www.antony-cairns.co.uk: "There is a lot more to these pictures than a novel reading of [London's] streets. The pictures originate as 35mm transparencies, part-developed and then solarised before being re-developed for another five minutes or so. From inter-negatives contact prints are made onto pre-coated aluminium sheets... What emerges isn't a perfectly realized image but one that is marked by the demands of the process, by fingerprints, droplets and blisters. The picture itself, that is to say, carries as one of its aspects evidence of its making, the accidents and incidents involved in bringing the image to the light of day... The pictures also have to be 'made out', fathomed or figured. Stains and blurs ask to be identified or separated one from the other; and due to the unfamiliar tonal range of the images items such as bolt-heads and lights have to be discerned. There are pieces of texts, as well, which can almost be read, and they cause hesitation and strain... Thus the city with its frameworks and modules provides a setting and a foil for the kind of almost imperceptible moments in which we usually have our being."
