The photography of Charles Sheeler : American modernist by Theodore E Stebbins( Book )

13 editions published in 2002 in English and German and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This monograph presents the often-overlooked photographic work of Charles Sheeler. It opens with his Cubist-inspired architectural images of the 1910s, moves on to the highly abstract nude studies and dramatic New York City views from around 1920, and culminates in the series devoted to the Ford Motor Company's River Rouge plant in 1927, a project that established modern industrial iconography. Also featured are his stunning images of the Chartres cathedral done in 1929 and images of American industry made for Fortune magazine in 1939. Freely experimenting with the possibilities of the medium, Sheeler paved the way for other innovative photographers such as Walker Evans. This volume also investigates the links between the photographer and the painter Charles Sheeler - as he employed both media in the process of visual creation."--Jacket

Back to Fort Scott : Gordon Parks by Karen E Haas( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first African American photographer to be hired full time by Life magazine, Gordon Parks was often sent on assignments involving social issues that his white colleagues were not asked to cover. In 1950 he returned on one such assignment to his hometown of Fort Scott in southeastern Kansas: he was to provide photographs for a piece on segregated schools and their impact on black children in the years prior to Brown v. Board of Education. Parks intended to revisit early memories of his birthplace, many involving serious racial discrimination, and to discover what had become of the 11 members of his junior high school graduation class since his departure 20 years earlier. But when he arrived only one member of the class remained in Fort Scott, the rest having followed the well-worn paths of the Great Migration in search of better lives in urban centers such as St. Louis, Kansas City, Columbus and Chicago. Heading out to those cities Parks found his friends and their families and photographed them on their porches, in their parlors and dining rooms, on their way to church and working at their jobs, and interviewed them about their decision to leave the segregated system of their youth and head north. His resulting photo essay was slated to appear in Life in the spring of 1951, but was ultimately never published. This book showcases the 80-photo series in a single volume for the first time, offering a sensitive and visually arresting view of our country's racialized history. Gordon Parks (1912-2006) was born into poverty and segregation in Fort Scott, Kansas. The self-taught photographer also found success as a film director, author and composer. He was awarded the National Medal of Arts and over 50 honorary degrees"--

Photography by Anne E Havinga( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"MFA Highlights: Photography showcases more than one hundred important photographs from the MFA's collection. An extensive introductory essay traces the aesthetic and technical history of photography as an art form, from the early days of the camera obscura through the invention of the daguerreotype and calotype and into the present digital age. In the selection of works that compose the body of this beautifully designed volume, careful juxtapositions emphasize the graphic qualities of the photographs, and extended captions compare and contrast images from different times and places, underscoring shared techniques, sensibilities, or subjects. A wide range of photographers - from early experimenters such as Eugene Cuvelier, Charles Marville, and Anna Atkins to modern giants Alfred Stieglitz, Ansel Adams, Man Ray, and Josef Sudek, as well as contemporary practitioners such as Joel Meyerowitz, Hiroshi Sugimoto, and Loretta Lux - are represented by portraits and figure studies, city views and still lifes, landscapes and seascapes."--BOOK JACKET
Edward Weston : the early years by Karen E Haas( Book )

6 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a book about Edward Weston before he was Edward Weston, before he was the renowned modernist photographer we know so well. His early years in the field coincided exactly with the height of the Pictorialist movement in America, and while he was never a typical practitioner, he did make photographs that borrowed themes from paintings and other media, and experimented with soft-focused imagery that sometimes looks more like graphite drawings or inky dark prints than photographs. He would later disavow the gauzy, painterly experiments of his early years, claiming in his Daybooks that even as I made the soft artistic work I would secretly admire sharp, clean, technically perfect photographs. Introducing rare surviving prints from the unplumbed holdings of the Lane Collection at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, this book offers new insights into Weston's working methods and his evolution as a photographer. By taking a longer and more nuanced view of his early years, and by reinserting his first experiments back into the larger story of his artistic production, it reveals the variety of ways in which the paths he took as a young man led him to become the mature modernist master. Beautifully reproduced examples of Weston's most important early work, essays explaining its place in his oeuvre and the history of photography, and a section dedicated to the variety of Weston?s early materials and techniques make this book a must-have resource
