"Francis Frith in Egypt and Palestine narrates the political, intellectual, and social concerns that make Frith representative of England's encounter with the East in the nineteenth century. Historian of photography Douglas R.

Romantic philosophy, and Pre-Raphaelite aesthetics."--BOOK JACKET

In contrast to traditional chronological studies, this beautifully illustrated volume takes a unique and highly revealing thematic approach to the subject, focusing on landscape and the body. Featuring more than 170 photographs by a wide variety of image-makers, This Side of Paradise casts new light on both Los Angeles and the photographic practices within it."--BOOK JACKET
Photographic storytelling ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This program examines how photographers work with images to communicate stories and ideas and how viewers interpret those images. Message manipulation deriving from point of view, context, editing, superimposing, cropping, recoloring, and captioning are discussed. In addition, selective perception-seeing pictures through the filters of values and prejudices-is studied. Commentary is provided by Doug Nickel, curator of photography at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Joel Slayton, of the CADRE Laboratory for New Media at San Jose State University; Shanto Iyengar, director of the Political Communication Lab at Stanford University; and others.

Stranger passing by Joel Sternfeld ( Book )
3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Over a period of fifteen years Joel Sternfeld travelled across America and took portrait photographs that form in Douglas R. Nickel's words an intelligent, unscientific, interpretive sampling of what Americans looked like at the century's end. Unlike historical portraits which represent significant people in staged surroundings, Sternfeld's subjects are uncannily normal: a banker having an evening meal, a teenager collecting shopping carts in a parking lot, a homeless man holding his bedding. Using August Sander's classic photograph of three peasants on their way to a dance as a starting point, Sternfeld employed a conceptual strategy that amounts to a new theory of the portrait, which might be termed The Circumstantial Portrait. What happens when we encounter the other in the mist of a circumstance? What presumptions, if any, are valid? What, if anything, can be known of the other from a photographic portrait?
