Some aesthetic decisions : the photographs of Judy Fiskin by Virginia Heckert( Book )
4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
His is a gloriously illustrated volume that represents the entire photographic oeuvre of American artist Judy Fiskin. This first major monograph of Los Angeles-based artist Judy Fiskin includes reproductions of nearly 300 images taken from 1973 to 1995. Since Fiskin turned to video in the late 1990s, this compendium represents her complete photographic oeuvre, including many images never before published. Distinctive in both subject matter and form, Fiskin's photographs showcase the less-noticed aspects of the built environment, from vernacular and military architecture to period furniture and flower-arranging competitions. Her images are printed in small scale in black and white with black borders and set within a field of white photographic paper, thus becoming objects in and of themselves as well as windows into an earlier time and place

Light, paper, process : reinventing photography by Virginia Heckert( Book )
2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is an intriguing account of artists who push the medium of photography to its limits. From its beginnings, photography has been shaped by the desire to understand and explore the essence of the medium. Light, Paper, Process: Reinventing Photography features the work of seven artists - Alison Rossiter, Marco Breuer, James Welling, Lisa Oppenheim, Chris McCaw, John Chiara, and Matthew Brandt - who investigate the possibilities of analog photography by finding innovative, surprising, and sometimes controversial ways to push light-sensitive photographic papers and chemical processing beyond their limits. A panoply of practices emerges in the work of these artists, ranging from customizing cameras with special lesses to producing images on paper without a camera or film. Some artists load paper, rather than film, in the camera to contact-printing with sources of light other than the enlarger, while others use expired photographic papers and extraneous materials (e.g., dust, sweat, tar) selected to match the particular subject of the photograph. All of the artists share a willingness to embrace accident and chance.0Trial and error contribute to an understanding of the materials and their potential, as do the attitudes of underlying curiosity and inventive interrogation. The act of making each image is like a performance, with only the photographer present. The results are stunning. Organized in seven sections-each including an essay with illustrations, technical notes, an artist biography, and a rich selection of plates-this lavish publication is issued on the occasion of the exhibition Light, Paper, Process: Reinventing Photography, on view at the J. Paul Getty Museum at the Getty Center, Los Angeles, from April 14 to September 6, 2015
