Le daguerréotype français : un objet photographique by Musée d'Orsay( Book )

18 editions published in 2003 in French and Undetermined and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On January 7, 1839, at a session of the Academy of Sciences of Paris, the physicist François Arago presents a new method to reproduce mechanically and chemically, without manual intervention, the images that form in the dark room: the daguerreotype, marking the official birth of photography. Single image, on copper plate covered with silver, the changing reflections, polished and often reflective as a mirror, Daguerre's invention was to permanently change the gaze on the world and its representations, artistic as scientists. It is this "new art in the middle of an old civilization", in the words of the scientist Gay-Lussac in 1839, the exhibition and the book intend to discover, focusing on French production, all its diversity

Stephen Shore by Stephen Shore( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most influential photographers of our time, Stephen Shore has often been categorized as one of a group of artists of the 1970s who captured American popular culture in straightforward, unglamorous color images. While this is true, it is only part of the story: Shore has worked with many forms of photography, switching from cheap automatic cameras to large format in the 1970s, pioneering the use of color film before returning to black and white in the 1990s, and, in the 2000s, taking up the opportunities offered by digital photography, digital printing and social media. Published to accompany the first comprehensive survey of Stephen Shore's work in the US, this catalog reflects the full range of his contribution, including the gelatin silver prints he made as a teenager (and sold to The Museum of Modern Art); his photographs of the scene at Andy Warhol's Factory, in New York; the color images he made during cross-country road trips in the 1970s; his recent explorations of Israel, the West Bank and Ukraine; and his current work on digital platforms, including Instagram

Seen & imagined : the world of Clifford Ross by Clifford Ross( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the romantic, highly detailed realism of his large-scale "Mountain" photographs to multimedia pieces that embrace abstract forms drawn from close observation of nature, Clifford Ross's work is unlike any other. In 2002, Ross invented his R1 camera, with which he has produced some of the highest resolution single shot photographs ever realized. In a Ross Landscape, viewers can spot a bird in a tree on a mountain a mile away. Seen & Imagined accompanies a landmark exhibition at MASS MoCA. It offers a comprehensive survey of Clifford Ross's work, from large-scale, highly detailed landscape photographs to his latest "invisible art"--And augmented reality app for smartphones that reveals a hidden work within a work." -- Mass MoCA's website
Praha, Paris, Barcelona : modernidad fotográfica de 1918 a 1948 = photographic modernity from 1918 to 1948 by David Balsells( Book )

12 editions published in 2010 in Spanish and Catalan and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La exposición revela la repercusión de las vanguardias en la Europa de entreguerras e intenta hacer una relectura que contribuya a situar la fotografía catalana de vanguardia en el lugar que se merece en el contexto internacional. Praga se convirtió, después de París, en el segundo centro del cubismo y en residencia de numerosos artistas. En 1918, con el nacimiento de la Checoslovaquia democrática, empiezan dos décadas de prosperidad cultural: la fotografía, el grafismo y el cine producen obras que influyen a todo el mundo. También, por su libertad cultural, París atrajo a artistas extranjeros, muchos de ellos fotógrafos: Man Ray, Brassaï, François Kollar o Germaine Krull y, huyendo del fascismo en Alemania, Gisèle Freund, Gerda Taro y Robert Capa. París se reafirma como un espacio de circulación de ideas, donde proliferan galerías, agencias y ediciones y, paralelamente, Cataluña también se incorpora a las vanguardias renovando la estética dominante en los círculos culturales de la época
La Commune photographiée by Quentin Bajac( Book )

10 editions published in 2000 in French and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quelques jours à peine après la fin sanglante de la Commune de Paris, c'est une profusion d'images photographiques, de tous formats, que découvrent les Parisiens, dans les devantures des magasins ou, interprétées en gravure, dans les colonnes de leurs journaux. Ces images ont rarement fait l'objet d'une étude approfondie. Que représentent-elles exactement? Par qui ont-elles été produites?
Stephen Shore : selected works 1973-1981 by Stephen Shore( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" ... an international group of artists, curators, authors, and cultural figures have selected up to ten photographs apiece from Stephen Shore's Uncoming Places archive. None of the images appear in the current edition of his landmark book of the same name; most are published here for the first time. Each suite of photographs, chosen from over four hundred newly scanned or rediscovered negatives, offers an idiosyncratic commentary on Shore's distinctive vision of America and proposes new perspectives on this seminal body of work from the 1970s and early '80s"--Page 5

Andres Serrano : uncensored photographs by Andres Serrano( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in 3 languages and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Andres Serrano (born 1950) has photographed the homeless, Ku Klux Klansmen, corpses and feces, but he is most famous--or infamous, in some circles--for his Piss Christ (1987), showing a crucifix submerged in the artist's urine. Serrano returns again and again to scandalous or uncomfortable themes like religion, death, sex and violence, and his work prompts debate or even violent reaction, making vandalism and censorship inexorably part of the story of Serrano's art as well.Published to accompany a major exhibition at the Royal Museum of Fine Arts of Belgium, Andres Serrano: Uncensored Photographs presents the many faces of Serrano and his work, tracing the trajectory of his career in more than 100 photographs
Dreamlands : des parcs d'attractions aux cités du futur( Book )

15 editions published in 2010 in French and English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Catalogue publié à l'occasion de l'exposition présentée au Centre Pompidou à Paris du 5 mai au 9 août 2010. L'exposition Dreamlands développe un propos inédit : montrer comment les modèles de foires internationales, d'expositions universelles et de parcs de loisirs ont influencé la conception de la ville et de ses usages. Démultipliant la réalité par la pratique de la copie, jouant d'une esthétique de l'accumulation et du collage souvent proche du kitsch, ces mondes clos et parallèles ont en effet inspiré les démarches artistiques, architecturales et urbanistiques au XXe siècle, au point de s'ériger en possible norme de certaines constructions contemporaines. La catalogue de l'exposition pluridisciplinaire rassemble des oeuvres, mêlant art moderne et contemporain, architecture, films et documents issus de nombreuses collections publiques et privées
The shape of things : photographs from Robert B. Menschel by N.Y.) Museum of Modern Art (New York( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This survey explores 60 remarkable photographs from the collection of The Museum of Modern Art, all acquired with the support of Robert B. Menschel and meticulously selected for the book by the museum's chief curator of photography, Quentin Bajac. Ranging from the contemporary artist Andreas Gursky to William Henry Fox Talbot, one of the medium's founding figures, these works collectively tell the story of photography from its beginnings, but upend and newly illuminate that story through their arrangement in reverse chronological order. Each image is the subject of a brief, elegant text. The book borrows its title from a work by Carrie Mae Weems, one of the many great photographs that Menschel has contributed to the collection."--Artbook& website (viewed November 14, 2016)
