I am at the dawning of a new world," wrote Nicéphore Niépce in 1827 after he used a camera obscura to fix the scene outside his window onto a metal plate, thus creating the world's first surviving photograph. "View from the Window at Le Gras" far surpassed earlier attempts to capture images using methods that only managed to reproduce outlines and shadows. This program traces the early history of photography, from Renaissance dabblings with the camera obscura up to the 19th century, when the calotype overtook the daguerreotype as the photographic medium of choice. Explaining both the technical processes of the first cameras and their capabilities, the video shows how inventors including Niépce, Thomas Wedgwood, Henry Fox Talbot, Hippolyte Bayard, and Louis Daguerre pushed the boundaries of composition, lighting, and portraiture with each new advance in photography
Found images by Stan Neumann( Visual )

2 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To create "Pictures from the Street" Joachim Schmid sifted through torn photos that had been thrown away, then patched them together to produce entirely new images, thus bringing the practices of "found art" to photography. By contrast, in "From an Ethnographic Museum" Hannah Höch made montages by combining museum-quality prints with snapshots - still a form of found photography, but with much more altering and reinterpretation of the materials. This program explores various types of found photography, from styles that celebrate discarded photos to those that use Internet graphics as raw material for new work. Among other pieces, the video discusses Linder Sterling's "Pretty Girls" (1977), Robert Heinecken's "Are You Rea" (1968), and Wallace Berman's "Verifax" (1964), along with the groundbreaking book Evidence, published in 1977 by Larry Sultan and Mike Mandel
Conceptual photography by Stan Neumann( Visual )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Walk in the street trying not to blink. Each time you blink, snap a photo. These instructions by Vito Acconci, the basis of his series "Blink," characterize the methods and philosophies of the Conceptualist Photography movement that began in the 1960s. Aided by his low-tech amateur camera, Acconci meant to deconstruct the notion of artistic subjectivity while suggesting that the open shutter replaces his closed eyes. Using works by Acconci and others, this program explores the Conceptualist photographers, who used both humor and technical skill to make statements about the nature of art and perception. The video discusses Robert Smithson's ironic "Monuments of Passaic"; "Self Portrait as a Fountain," Bruce Nauman's homage to Duchamps; Joseph Kosuth's installations that played with the relationship between reality and photos of reality; and works by Mel Bochner, Ed Rusha, John Baldessari, Ugo Mulas, and Ai Weiwei
Pictorialism by Stan Neumann( Visual )

2 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Pictorialist photographers at the turn of the 20th century reproduced the look of paintings by experimenting with soft focus, special lenses, printing effects, and by drawing directly onto prints. Providing an overview of the movement, this program studies the works and methods of Edward Steichen, Alfred Stieglitz, and other Pictorialist photographers. Covers Robert Demachy, Alvin Langdon Coburn, Frank Eugene, Guido Rey, and others. Contains nudity"--Container
The new German objectivity by Stan Neumann( Visual )

2 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1968, Bernd and Hilla Becher set out to photograph industrial buildings such as water towers, silos, and blast furnaces. Their goal was to return photography to the documentary nature of its origins and free it of "Expressionist meanderings," as German artists of the New Objectivity movement had done with other visual arts. The Dusseldorf school - the Bechers and their students - was to radically impact photography with its strict, dispassionate portrayals and predilection for straight lines. This program tells the story of the Dusseldorf school of photography, a legacy of Germany's New Objectivity, and its evolution since 1968. Covers Candida Höfer, Petra Wünderlich, Thomas Struth, Thomas Ruff, and Andréas Gursky, focusing on the Bechers' industrial typologies, "Collegium Helveticum," Wünderlich's religious buildings, "Art Institute of Chicago II," Ruff's "Portraits," and "jpegs."
Staged photography by Stan Neumann( Visual )

2 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At some point during the early 20th century staged photography fell out of fashion, but in the 1960s it made a spectacular comeback, enriched by the external influences of popular culture. This program explains how staged photography has been used to deconstruct the idea of literal photographic realism. Also explored are the ways in which this art form trounces the notion of a camera's objectivity, as in Cindy Sherman's parodies of B-movie portrayals of imperiled women, and Jeff Wall's elaborate reinterpreting of classic paintings to make statements about modern life. The video also covers Mac Adams, Duane Michals, Eugene Meatyard, Bernard Faucon, David Levinthal, Thomas Demand, and Hiroshi Sugimoto, and discusses "Chance Meeting," "Hiding Behind the Eyes," "Things are Queer," "Mystery Series," "The Destroyed Room," "The Vampires' Picnic," and "The Flying Child
The primitives of photography, 1850-1860( Visual )

2 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With an overview of its pioneers - called "the primitives of photography" by Felix Nadar - this program explores the brief golden era between the time that photography was invented and the time it became an industry. The transformation of the camera from mere recording device to new artistic medium is seen in works that feature deliberate composition as well as in staged photos and composite prints. The technical processes by which photographers enhanced their works is also explained, especially in the creation of Oscar Rejlander's precursor of Photoshop, "The Two Ways of Life." Among others, the video covers Henry Fox Talbot, Hippolyte Bayard, Édouard Baldus, Gustave Le Gray, and Henry Peach Robinson, focusing on "Open Door," "Self Portrait as a Drowned Man," "Cloister at St. Triomphe in Arles," and "Fading Away."

"The alliance of photography with the press led to an era of creativity in the medium, with eye-catching layouts replacing rectangular photo formats. But before long press photography took on a potent life of its own. Dorothea Lange's 'Migrant mother' made an impact as soon as it was published, as did Walker Evans' Alabama series and images by Weegee, Robert Capa, and Brassaï. This program profiles these and other 20th-century photojournalists, including Henri Cartier-Bresson, Josef Koudelka, and Richard Avedon"--Container

As Martin digs deeper into his mother's past, he discovers she had a hidden relationship with a beautiful woman, who he finds at a seedy strip club in Tijuana called the Americano. Martin discovers there may be more than he ever hoped to know about his mother's sordid past and his own problems with commitment
Photographing intimacy( Visual )

2 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Jacques Henri Lartigue began taking pictures in 1901 it was for the sheer enjoyment of recording his family's daily life. Lartigue's albums were featured at the MoMA in 1963, inspiring a new movement in photography called diarism. By the 1980s the genre had become even more intimate as the diarists added increasingly radical levels of introspection to their work. This program studies photos by Nobuyoshi Araki, Nan Golden, Antoine d'Agata, John Coplans, and others as it analyzes how these artists played with concepts of performance and privacy, concealment and display. The video focuses on "Sentimental Journey" and "Winter Journey," which chronicle the life and death of Araki's wife; "The Ballad of Sexual Dependency," in which Golden blurs the line between real intimacy and posed; and d'Agata's "Personal Diary of the 21st Century," a cutting-edge photo fresco of "extreme experience."
The Surrealistic photography by Stan Neumann( Visual )

2 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nothing proves the truth of Surrealism like photography, wrote Salvador Dali in 1925. Using works by Dali, Man Ray, Dora Maar, and others, this program illustrates the philosophies of Surrealist photographers as well as the techniques they used to express a particular artistic vision. The video explains how the camera was wielded as a tool for revealing an inherent connection between real and surreal; and for revealing that, when captured on film, inanimate objects can take on an eerie life of their own while conversely, living things may be rendered as inanimate props. Covers André Breton, Marcel Marien, André Kertész, Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Jindrich Štyrský, Miroslav Hák, Brassaï, Claude Calhoun, René Magritte, and Henri Cartier-Bresson, focusing on "Dress Hung Out to Dry," "Statue of Marshal Ney in the Fog," and Man Ray's work with Lee Miller

Michelle (Tautou), a fashion model, sets off on a spiritual quest in the hope of finding emotional balance. What she finds is a veterinarian named Francois (Edouard Baer, Alias Betty), whose ambivalence about being Jewish leads Michelle to study the faith and consider conversion. The plot sounds heavy, but God Is Great (And I'm Not) is actually a light, fluid movie that's as alert to the thousand tiny ways in which men and women miscommunicate and defeat their best intentions
