Street & studio : an urban history of photography by Ute Eskildsen( Book )

11 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The photographic portrait has two parallel histories that run side by side, from the birth of photography to the twenty-first century; one of portraits made in the studio, the other of those taken in the street. The advent of small, easily concealed cameos allowed photographers to capture subjects in the street unaware. In contrast, the studio offered the opportunity to present carefully composed images to the world, making use of the elaborate staging and technical devices at the photographer's disposal." "With celebrities today expected to pose for the paparazzi in the street, and the studio being used increasingly for informal and intimate shots, these traditions have been subverted. Accompanying a major exhibition at Tate Modern, Street & Studio explores the fascinating contrasts, tensions and connections between these two traditions."--Jacket
Werkstatt für Photographie, 1976-1986 by Museum Folkwang Essen( Book )

14 editions published in 2016 in English and German and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first book about the history, influences, and impact of the 'Werkstatt für Photography'(Photography Workshop) founded by the Berlin photographer Michael Schmidt at the Volkshochschule Kreuzberg in 1976. In the midst of the Cold War, the Werkstatt initiated an artistic 'airlift' to the United States, a democratic field of experimentation beyond the pale of traditional vocational and political-institutional standards. Those same years witnessed the establishment of infrastructures in West Germany that paved the way for the emancipation of photography as an art form. These included 'documenta 6' (1977), the first photo galleries and photography journals, and a number of pathbreaking exhibitions. Berlin, Hanover, and Essen played important roles in that process. All in all, the picture of a medium in transition emerges, a medium that developed an autonomous form of artistic authorship in the field of documentary. This book presents the story of German photography in the 1970s and 1980s, its international ties, its protagonists, and its networks.

Photographie, arme de classe : la photographie sociale et documentaire en France, 1928-1936( Book )

6 editions published in 2018 in French and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Voici une synthèse passionnante sur un moment mal connu de l'histoire de la photographie française dans l'entre-deux-guerres. Elle réunit les travaux inédits d'immenses artistes- alors tout jeunes- comme Jacques-André Boiffard, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Gisèle Freund, Germaine Krull, Eli Lotar, Lisette Model, Willy Ronis, ou René Zuber ainsi que de photographes anonymes. Engagés dans la lutte antifasciste, la révolution sociale et le pacifisme, les professionnels de l'Association des écrivains et artistes révolutionnaires (AEAR) et les Amateurs photographes ouvriers (APO) s'emparent de la photo comme d'une arme pour documenter et dénoncer les réalités sociales en France et dans le monde. De ces nouvelles pratiques naît une grammaire visuelle et graphique au service du combat politique porté par une formidable dynamique de magazines, brochures, tracts, affiches... Un foisonnement qui n'est pas sans évoquer l'essor actuel des usages militants de l'image partagée sur Internet."--Page 4 de la couverture

Double take : the world's most iconic photographs meticulously re-created in miniature by Jojakim Cortis( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Double Take' presents forty astonishingly accurate reconstructions of iconic photographs--ranging from the earliest known to the world's most expensive. These images have been painstakingly re-created in miniature by two photographers, Jojakim Cortis and Adrian Sonderegger. Inspired by the record auction price of $4.3 million set by Andreas Gursky's Rhein II in 2011, the duo set themselves a challenge: could they reconstruct that image in their Zürich studio? The photograph they created from a miniature diorama of Rhein II was a success and became a starting point for a larger personal project: a series of photographs of these miniature re-creations the team made themselves, imitating iconic photographs that captured pivotal historical events
Farewell Photography by Biennale für aktuelle Fotografie( Book )

7 editions published in 2017 in English and German and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Deposit by Yann Mingard( Book )

7 editions published in 2014 in 3 languages and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How does our secular society manage its heritage and, with that, its future? By collecting and archiving data with near-religious zeal: human DNA in the form of slivers of umbilical cord, dental samples and sperm; DNA of animals already extinct in the wild; the seeds of all manner of (agricultural) plants. And, of course, vast quantities of digital data that we leave behind on the endless data pathways of the internet, credit card statements and official registers. From 2009 to 2013, Swiss photographer Yann Mingard documented our mania for collection and storage in images that raise many of the unasked but pressing questions of our time. Do propagation technologies transform the human prosthetic God into a veritable demiurge? Does the obsessive collection of data perhaps even mask a sense of unease at the disappearance of religious rituals and doctrines? What is the significance of diverse plant and animal species that exist only as rare individual specimens in laboratories, zoos and botanical seedbanks? Will the age-old fantasy of eternal life one day become a real biological and medical possibility? Mingard's meticulously documented images are divided into four chapter-"Plants", "Animals", "Humans" and "Data"- and alternate with an extensive glossary of technical terms. Deposit thus presents a comprehensive compendium of the subject matter
Metamorphosen des Gesichts die "Verwandlungen durch Licht" von Helmar Lerski by Florian Ebner( Book )

Dancing with myself by Punta della dogana (Venetië)( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and Italian and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dancing with myself investigates the elemental importance of self-representation in art from the 1970s to the present day and the role of the artist as protagonist and subject of the work. Through a wide variety of artistic practices and artists (from Claude Cahun to LaToya Ruby Frazier, from Gilbert & George to Cindy Sherman, and from Alighiero Boetti to Maurizio Cattelan) coming from different cultures and backgrounds, generations and experiences, it reflects on the contrast between different approaches: melancholy and vanity, ironic games played with identity and political autobiography, existential rumination and the body as sculpture, effigy or fragment, and its symbolical representation
Balthasar Burkhard by Balthasar Burkhard( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents the many facets of photographer Balthasar Burkhard (1944-2010), showing his self-invention as an artist and tracing the trajectory of the medium of photography in the later half of the twentieth century. Burkhard's work combines a sensitive understanding of the body as sculpture and the photographic image as a canvas, making him one of the pioneers in translating photography as a monumental tableau into contemporary art. This comprehensive book coalesces Burkhard's early role as a chronicler of the contemporary art of his time, especially as the main photographer for Swiss curator Harald Szeemann, his conceptual redefinition of photography together with other artists, and finally his emancipation as a photo artist. It accompanies a major retrospective organized by Museum Folkwang in Essen, Fotomuseum Winterthur and Fotostiftung Schweiz, the Museo d'arte della Svizzerra italiana in Lugano and the Balthasar Burkhard Estate in Bern. Exhibition: Museum Folkwang, Essen, Germany (20.10.2017- 14.01.2018) / Fotomuseum Winterthur und Fotostiftung Schweiz, Winterthur, Switzerland (11.02. - 21.04.2018) / Museo d'arte della Svizzera italiana, Lugano, Switzerland (09.06. - 02.09.2018)

Beate Gütschow : Z I S LS by Beate Gütschow( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Neben den Serien LS und S, mit denen Beate Gütschow früh bekannt geworden ist, stellt das Buch zwei neue Serien vor: In der I Serie greift Gütschow Ästhetik und Technik der Reklame- und Produktfotografie auf. Sie zeigt, wie unspektakuläre und gebrauchte Gegenstände durch präzise Inszenierung in begehrenswerte Objekte verwandelt werden. Die Manipulation findet durch Lichtsetzung und Bühnenbau und ohne digitale Eingriffe statt. In ihrer neusten Serie Z verknüpft Beate Gütschow Fotografie und Zeichnung, sie verfolgt hier erstmalig einen dokumentarischen Ansatz. Gegenstand der Untersuchungen ist ein Gelände nördlich des Berliner Hauptbahnhofs, hier stand das erste panoptische Gefängnis Deutschlands, ein 1849 erbauter sternförmiger Bau mit zentralem Überwachungsturm, 1941 - 1945 für politische Häftlinge genutzt. Das Buch enthält einen Index über alle bisher veröffentlichten Werke. Beate Gütschows (* 1970) Werke wurden in bedeutenden Institutionen ausgestellt und sind in wichtigen Sammlungen vertreten, darunter Guggenheim und Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, Berlinische Galerie, Kunsthalle Hamburg, Städel Museum, Frankfurt, Kunsthaus Zürich, SFMOMA, San Francisco, LACMA, Los Angeles. Die Künstlerin lebt und arbeitet in Berlin und Köln
RAF : no evidence = kein Beweis by Arwed Messmer( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in German and English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Numerous accounts of the RAF and the 'German fall' of 1977 have been given over the past forty years, from journalistic, historical, literary, cinematic, and artistic perspectives. Arwed Messmer works with the various photographs made by police photographers at the time - pictures of demonstrators, crime scene images, and mug shots. He asks how this historical search for criminological evidence can be employed artistically today. His narrative strikes an arc from the beginnings of the RAF to the multiple eruptions of violence in 1977, the abduction and murder of Hanns Martin Schleyer, and the deaths of Andreas Baader, Gudrun Ensslin, and Jan-Carl Raspe in Stammheim prison. Messmer's work also has an ethical dimension, asking which photographs can be shown, how can they be shown, and why we want to see them? This investigation touches on a key issue in the debate on images that are both historical documents and pictures with their own aesthetic quality and a powerful and independent potential for an empathetic examination of history"--Back cover of supplement
Viktoria Binschtok by Viktoria Binschtok( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in German and English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Viktoria Binschtok's work combines the real world of the street with the channels of the digital village. The artist shows us the extent to which images in the Internet no longer only illustrate our world, but are in fact much more creations of their own. Time and again she finds constellations of image and reality that enable insights into the paradoxes and upheavals of this new image order, even though it is an order that follows mathematical and economic principles. The artist makes use of the randomness of these image formats to playfully tease out their potential
