The new Granta book of travel( Book )

4 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Granta has long been known for the quality of its travel writing. The 1980s were the culmination of a golden age, when writers including Paul Theroux and Bruce Chatwin, James Hamilton-Paterson and James Fenton set out to document life in largely unfamiliar territory, bringing back tales of the beautiful, the extraordinary and the unexpected. By the mid 1990s, travel writing seemed to change, as a younger generation of writers that appeared in the magazine made journeys for more complex and often personal reasons. Decca Aitkenhead reported on sex tourism in Thailand, and Wendell Steavenson moved to Iraq as foreign correspondent. What all these pieces have in common is a sense of engagement with the places they describe, and a belief that whether we are in Birmingham or Belarus, there is always something new to be discovered

Homes on finally meeting with her biological father, Robyn Davidson on her unexpected 'marriage' to Eddie, an Aborigine, Anna Pyasetskaya's heartbreaking search for her sons body during the chaos of the Chechen war, and David Goldblatt's attempts to cope with the aftermath of his father's murder."--Jacket

The erasure trilogy( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Erasure Trilogy explores the anguish caused by the loss of memory - by forgetting, amnesia or suppression - and the resulting human desire to preserve memory, all seen through the prism of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Memory Trace, the first project in the trilogy, depicts the ruins caused by the Arab-Israeli War of 1948: portraits of those traumatized by violence, devastated landscapes and fragments of buildings. This visual poem suggests the irreparable loss of a lingering past that augurs a painful and difficult future. Tracing the ironic consequences of David Ben-Gurion's dream of settling the Negev and making the "desert bloom," the aerial photographs in Sheikh's Desert Bloom reveal the myriad actions that have displaced and erased the Bedouins who have lived in the desert for generations. Here we see the extreme transformation of the landscape through erosion, mining, military training camps, the demolition of villages and afforestation. Through Sheikh's lens the desert becomes both an archive of violence and a record of human attempts to erase it. The essential text accompanying Desert Bloom (in the publication, Desert Bloom Notes) explores the historical and contemporary clues along the shifting surface of the desert, and what lies hidden, sealed within Sheikh's aerial landscapes of the Negev. Independence / Nakba consists of sixty-five diptychs - one for each year since 1948 - pairing people from both sides of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and of gradually increasing age. The double portraits query the relations between Israelis and Palestinians before the founding of the Israeli State (each image depicts either someone who lived in Palestine before the founding of the Israeli State, or someone whose ancestors did).

Dark rooms by Nigel Shafran( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nigel Shafran's new book takes five interconnected series of photographs and weaves them together with the common thread of domestic scenes. There is a constant sense of forward movement that is sometimes overt, as in the photographs of supermarket checkouts or underground escalators; sometimes implicit and more emotionally charged, as when the photographer faces the inventory of possessions in his mother's last house. But in each case these photographs deal as much with what has been left behind as with what lies ahead. They carry the inevitability of change and the psychological undertow of time passing moving forward." - Publisher's website

Europeans by Henri Cartier-Bresson( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Henri Cartier-Bresson is one of this century's leading photographers. His earliest images are of Europe in the 1930s and '40s. Here is a magnificent compilation of the world-renowned photographer's work that truly captures his famous "decisive moments" through people and places rich in beauty as well as turmoil
Henri Cartier-Bresson by Henri Cartier-Bresson( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Henri Cartier-Bresson published a photographic collection entitled "The Europeans" in 1955, a portait of the postwar continent whose occupants lived among ruins and still bore the mark of hunger. In this new volume of images spanning a period from the late 1920s to the 1970s, the celebrated photographer has surveyed a region whose separate parts have, over the years, begun to take on a "family likeness." Documenting the face of Europe at a time when the boundaries between individual countries appeared to be breaking down, Cartier-Bresson traveled from the Scandinavian shield to the Yugloslavian "karst," from the Breton granites to the Irish bogs, scorning frontiers and custom posts and finding fragments of a greater identiy that defied the sometime dangerous pursuit of nationalism.The unity and compassion of his eye are imposed on the infinite diversity of cultures, on the complexity of hills and valleys, on the variety of fields and foliage, and on the jumble of roads and rivers. In both countryside and city, people inhabit the landscape, sometimes alone, a face, a single gaze, but often couples, twin figures, mirrored individuals, linked solitudes. These photographs speak of the same daily ceremony, of the sweet and painful doggedness of people in the on going business of living, whether English opera-goers in formal evening wear, Polish priests in alb or cassock, or Abruzzi peasant shrouded in the black of their cloaks and hats.With his remarkable ability to capture the fragile reality of European life, Henri Cartier-Bresson once again underscores his reputation as one of the twentieth century's most influential and original photographers
