Gordon Parks : the Flávio story by Gordon Parks( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores a once-popular picture story by Gordon Parks and the extraordinary chain of events it prompted. Published in 'Life' magazine in June 1961 as 'Poverty: Freedom?s Fearful Foe', this empathetic photo-essay profiled the da Silva family, living in a hillside favela near a wealthy enclave of Rio de Janeiro. Focused primarily on the eldest son Flavio, an industrious twelve-year-old suffering from crippling asthma, Parks? story elicited more than 3,000 letters and $25,000 in donations from 'Life' readers to help the family and the favela.0In Brazil the story sparked controversy; one news magazine, 'O Cruzeiro', retaliated against 'Life', sending photographer Henri Ballot to document poverty in New York City. Undeterred, 'Life' embarked on a multi-year "rescue" effort that involved moving Flavio to a Denver hospital, relocating the family to a new home and administering funds to support the favela. The story, as well as Parks? relationship to Flavio, continued to develop over many years. The details of this extraordinary history provide a fascinating example of US exceptionalism during the early 1960s and a revealing look inside the power and cultural force of the "Great American Magazine".00Exhibition: Instituto Moreira Salles, São Paolo, Brazil (02.12.2017-28.01.2018) / Instituto Moreira Salles, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (06.02.-29.04.2018) / Ryerson Image Centre, Toronto, Canada (September 2018) / The J.

Poesia marginal : palavra e livro( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in Portuguese and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present catalogue presents close to 60 publications, particularly books from the decade of the 1970, the time when marginal poetry was at its highest. Includes publications by Ana Cristina Cesar, Cacaso, Chico Alvim, Geraldo Carneiro, Roberto Schwarz, Chacal, Bernardo Vilhena, Guilherme Mandaro, Eudoro Augusto, Zuca Sardan, Luis Olavo Fontes, amongst others who organized groups and literary brands like "Frenesi", "Nuvem cigana", "Vida de artista", and "Capricho". Includes also mimeographed booklets such as those by Nicolas Behr, photographs and literary magazines related to this era, such as Navilouca and the two editions of the Almanac Biotnico Vitality. "Marginal Poetry" did not run away from the books. On the contrary, they made them a privileged instrument. Without much money, the authors devised ways to edit their publications, without relying on publishers, who were little receptive to a genre anything but commercial. The object speaks by itself. There was something of guerrillas, pamphlet" --Page [7]

Panoramas : a paisagem brasileira no acervo do Instituto Moreira Salles( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in Portuguese and Spanish and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the exhibition, the organizers prepared scenographic reconstruction of a roundabout, a major attraction in major European cities in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century. The roundabouts were rod-shaped buildings built especially to house large panoramas. In the exhibition, you will see a view of Rio de Janeiro, shown in Paris in 1824. The image, which has 11 meters of perimeter in a circular structure, was the first representation of Brazil in Europe. There is also a room equipped with five projectors and a screen 3 meters high by 20 meters long, semicircular in shape, with projections of sequential panoramas of Brazilian cities between photographs and prints. The idea is to give visitors the feeling then experienced by visitors of urban entertainment which is the precursor of cinema. Another room dedicated to the history of crafts related to the capture and reproducibility of image displays and describes the materials and techniques used in the iconographic and photographic record of the nineteenth century lithographic stones, darkrooms (replicas of early equipment of the sixteenth and seventeenth instrumentalised artists in the period before the invention of photography), cameras, lenses and equipment that belonged to photographer Marc Ferrez, among other items. The printing techniques, along with photography, would favor the development of procedures for image reproduction by photomechanical means, which would further facilitate their multiplication. Coupled with this expansion of communication through the circulation of images in multiple media, the widescreen settled along the nineteenth century as a major form of iconographic representation. This exhibition, from the selection of works from the collection of IMS

Claudia Andujar (Claudine Haas, 1931) was born in Switzerland and has lived in Brazil since 1955.

The series consists of 85 pictures of Yanomami made between 1981 and 1983, during a trip to survey the situation. As the Yanomami do not respond to name, a 19th century method was chosen for the identification of indigenous peoples: a photograph of the individual with a number attached to the body. These records, now transformed into a book, being published in Portuguese and English, include, in addition to photos, an itinerary of visits and portions of the report of the photographer on the communities studied

The first major retrospective is a powerful tribute to Mexico's most distinguished photographer comprising a selection of iconic photographs and unveiling more than twenty previously unpublished images from his eighty-year career. Featuring landscapes, still-lifes, rural and urban scenes, religious and vernacular subjects, as well as portraits of luminaries such as Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, Carlos Fuentes, and Octavio Paz, the work is chronologically arranged and richly varied. Three illuminating essays reveal the poetry of Bravo's photographs from his use of light and form to his fascination with dreams and his preoccupation with death. This definitive monograph commemorates 110 years of the birth of Manuel Alvarez Bravo. A decade after his death, the exhibition Fotopoesa is a very ambitious project curated by Sergio Burgi that has been widely accepted in Brazil. The exhibition included a reduced set of images by Gautherot of Mexico taken between 1936 and 1937 commissioned by the Muse de l'homme in Paris to document the country and where he met Álvarez Bravo, an event that would mark his later photographic production.
