Dreaming in pictures : the photography of Lewis Carroll by Douglas R Nickel( Book )

15 editions published in 2002 in English and Italian and held by 663 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Before becoming a celebrated author of children's books under the pen name Lewis Carroll, Oxford mathematics lecturer Charles Lutwidge Dodgson was known as a sophisticated and prolific photographer. This exhibition is the first to present an art-historical analysis of Dodgson's photography -- beautiful and unusual works crafted with a distinctly Victorian sensibility and visual vocabulary.The 76 photographs drawn together for Dreaming in Pictures: The Photography of Lewis Carroll represent Dodgson's images of people, from allegorical and historical tableaux to enigmatic, ethereal portraits of children."
Carleton Watkins : the art of perception by Douglas R Nickel( Book )

20 editions published in 1999 in English and German and held by 656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From pictures of Yosemite, the Pacific Coast, and the scenery along the Columbia River to photographs of the vast mining tracts of the Sierra Nevada and the towns springing up along the recently built Central and Southern Pacific railroads, these images provide an unparalleled visual record of the West."--Jacket
Francis Frith in Egypt and Palestine : a Victorian photographer abroad by Douglas R Nickel( Book )

10 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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. Nickel brings a sophisticated interdisciplinary approach to bear on the subject in order to expose the complexity of Frith's image-making, setting the photographs against a Victorian backdrop of religious debate, imperialist thought. Romantic philosophy, and Pre-Raphaelite aesthetics."--Jacket

Trees : national champions by Barbara Bosworth( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bosworth captures the ineffable grace and dignity of trees with clarity and directness: the green ash that shades a midwestern crossroads, the common pear that blooms in a Washington field, and the Florida strangler fig with its mass of entwining aerial roots. Her photographs, panoramic views taken with an 8 x 10 camera, show us the immensity of the largest species and the hidden triumphs of the smallest. Some trees are dethroned each year because of sickness or destruction, but more often simply because a new and bigger specimen is discovered; only three trees from the original Register in 1940 are still living today. Bosworth's 70 photographs of champion trees are not only a collection of tree portraits but the story of an American adventure as well."--BOOK JACKET
Photographic storytelling( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 276 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
Picturing modernity : highlights from the photography collection of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art by San Francisco Museum of Modern Art( Book )

6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Snapshots : the photography of everyday life, 1888 to the present by Douglas R Nickel( Book )

9 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

None of the photographs featured in Snapshots was ever intended to be art, they were simply taken to document an event in everyday life. Still, the uncanny similarity between what these nameless camera bugs have created and what we enjoy in a great picture is unmistakable. The Museum's determination to investigate the medium of photography as a critical part of visual culture is multi-faceted and this new book is one that will touch, thrill, and enchant

"This Side of Paradise: Body and Landscape in Los Angeles Photographs is a fascinating exploration of the dynamic relationship between the city and the art of photography from the mid-nineteenth century to the present. 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."--Jacket

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stranger passing by Joel Sternfeld( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 51 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?

Lola Álvarez Bravo by Lola Alvarez Bravo( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in Spanish and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lola Alvarez Bravo was Mexico's first woman photographer, and her career is exceptional both for its remarkable range and for the compelling quality of her work. Approaching photography from multiple angles, she worked as a photojournalist, commercial photographer, and professional portraitist, while also creating intensely personal images of people, places, and things throughout her native Mexico. In addition, she played a vital role in the Mexican cultural scene, as an inspiring teacher of photography, as friend of innumerable artists and writers (many of whom she photographed), and as owner of a prestigious gallery that presented the first solo show by her friend Frida Kahlo, the subject of some of Alvarez Bravo's most powerful portraits." "This is the first English-language book on Lola Alvarez Bravo to encompass the full range of her work, including some images never before published and several of her little-known photomontages. Elizabeth Ferrer's insightful text - based on far-ranging research, including interviews with the artist and her friends - captures the unique spirit of both the photographer and her extraordinary photographs."--Jacket
John Gutmann : the photographer at work by Sally Stein( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: John Gutmann (1905-1998) was one of America's most distinctive photographers. Born in Germany where he trained as an artist and art teacher, he fled the Nazis in 1933 and settled in San Francisco, reinventing himself as a photo-reporter. Gutmann captured images of American culture, celebrating signs of a vibrant democracy, however imperfect. His own status as an outsider-a Jew in Germany, a naturalized citizen in the United States-informed his focus on individuals from the Asian-American, African-American, and gay communities, as well as his photography in India, Burma, and China during World War II. This handsome book acknowledges Gutmann's place in the history of photography. Drawing on his archive of photographs and papers at the Center for Creative Photography, it presents both unfamiliar works and little-known contexts for his imagery, linking his photography to his passionate interest in painting and filmmaking, his collections of non-Western art and artifacts, and his pedagogy. In addition to a major essay by Sally Stein, the volume includes an introduction by Douglas R. Nickel, and an overview of the Gutmann archive by Amy Rule
