An uncertain grace by Sebastião Salgado( Book )

16 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 913 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From a Brazilian mine where 50,000 mud-covered men haul heavy bags of dirt up and down slippery ladders in search of a stray nugget of gold, to a former lake in western Africa now swallowed by the encroaching desert, where emaciated, starving people walk over its surface of sand, photographer Sebastião Salgado explores the live of the planet's often ignored people with a critical eye and an empathetic heart

After photography by Fred Ritchin( Book )

11 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 717 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After Photography examines the myriad ways in which the digital media has fundamentally altered the way we receive visual information, from photos of news events taken by ordinary people on cell phones to the widespread use of image surveillance. Simultaneously, the increased manipulation of photographs has made photography suspect as reliable documentation, raising questions about its role in recounting personal and public histories. In the tradition of John Berger and Susan Sontag, Fred Ritchin analyzes photography's failings and reveals untapped potentials for this evolving medium."--Jacket
Bending the frame : photojournalism, documentary, and the citizen by Fred Ritchin( Book )

11 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Bending the Frame, ' Fred Ritchin's third book on the future of the photographic medium, immerses the reader in the complex new ecosystem of the image and poses a series of critical questions that are relevant to today's image makers and readers alike. He begins by asking: "What do we want from this media revolution? Not just where is it bringing us, but where do we want to go? When the pixels start to settle, where do we think we should be in relationship to media - as producers, subjects, viewers? Since all media inevitably change us, how do we want to be changed?" To help us consider possible answers, Ritchin provides historical grounding for alternative modes of visual storytelling as well as a host of new and emerging strategies to explore the world in more complex, thoughtful and useful ways. If there are some one billion people roaming the world with cellphone cameras, he asks, what might the role of the professional photographer be? Might there be an urgent need for a metaphotography that contextualizes and makes sense of the myriad images already online? More pointedly, if there is a photography of war, shouldn't there also be a photography of peace?"--Back cover

Magnum photobook : the catalogue raisonné by Fred Ritchin( Book )

9 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is an in-depth survey of photobooks by world-acclaimed Magnum photographers, featuring some of the rarest books ever to have been published, as well as many landmark and iconic books. The first ever illustrated bibliography of over 1,300 photobooks published by Magnum photographers since the agency was founded in 1947, this volume offers rich insight into both the history of the photobook and the important role that Magnum has played in documentary photography. The seventy-year arc of Magnum Photos describes a vibrant and perilously fragile trajectory since its founding two years after the end of World War II. Its first members--Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, David "Chim" Seymour and George Rodger--had begun their photographic careers during the previous two decades, supported by the introduction of the portable small- and medium-format cameras combined with the more light-sensitive films that gave photographers enormous mobility and flexibility in engaging with their subjects, as well as the mass-circulation picture magazines such as Vu, Regards, Life, Look, and Picture Post, which provided an effective means of widespread distribution. These early innovations not only permitted the up-close, intimate coverage of war as it unfolded--an endeavour in which Magnum's founders excelled during both the Spanish Civil War and World War II--but would also allow conflict and its victims to be turned into a spectacle, a trend against which succeeding generations of Magnum photographers have rebelled. The photobook soon emerged as a counterbalance to the mass media, since it not only allowed photographers to report more extensively on a particular subject, but also enabled them to articulate nuanced, developed, at times dissonant points of view. This trend accelerated as photographers took on greater responsibility for the design, layout, picture selection and text of their own books, becoming fully fledged authors rather than simply providing images for others to present.--Adapted from cover and introduction--

1001 photographs you must see in your lifetime( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Award-winning photographer, critic, and educator Paul Lowe presents a carefully curated selection of the greatest still images--visually arresting, aesthetically complex, and historically significant--from the medium's earliest days to the present. Included are photographs from all over the globe, taken by both female and male photographers: famous iconic images, key signature works by notable photographers, and less familiar images that are nevertheless essential viewing. From 1850 to the present, from daguerreotype to digital, this book embraces all genres--documentary, portrait, photojournalistic, and more--as it traces the development of photography to the present day. It is organized chronologically with text that accompanies each photograph providing historical context and technical details. Each work is indexed by artist and by title, making it easy to find specific works and the oeuvres of particular photographers throughout the volume. Whether a gift or a self-purchase, this guide to the history and practice of photography is a must for budding amateurs and experienced practitioners alike."--Provided by publisher
In our own image by Fred Ritchin( Book )

7 editions published between 1990 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Twenty years ago, before the era of digital cameras, cell phones and the internet, Fred Ritchin outlined many of the ways in which the digital age would transform society. In Our Own Image was the first book to address the coming revolution in photography, and asked pointed questions that are increasingly relevant today, including whether democracy can survive the media's facile use of digital means. By the time a second edition was published in 1999, many of Ritchin's predictions had come true. Computer embellishment of imagery had become a staple in the media and had significantly diminished photography's role as a credible witness: Newsday had published the first future news photograph of two feuding ice skaters as they would meet the next day, and on its cover, Time magazine darkened and blurred an image of O.J. Simpson in order to lift a common police mug shot to the level of art, with no sacrifice to truth. Now Aperture reissues this seminal text, which has continued to shape the debate about digital imaging since its initial publication. This twentieth-anniversary edition features a preface by the author that contextualizes the book for a contemporary audience."--Publisher's description

Spanish Harlem by Joseph Rodríguez( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Brooklyn-raised photographer Joseph Rodriguez first debuted his body of work shot in Spanish Harlem in the 1980s, it changed the face of documentary photography. Grit, elegy, celebration, pride, lurking cataclysm--all embedded in the portrait of a place and the people. Now, three decades later, Rodriguez and powerHouse Books are revisiting that groundbreaking series: unearthing huge new caches of images, and re-editing and showcasing the body of work in a beautiful, deluxe monograph, reframing the project as one that pushed beyond documentary into the realm of fine art. Over 30 years since the project began, Spanish Harlem: El Barrio in the '80s finally brings this unparalleled endeavor to fruition"--From publisher
Werner Bischof Standpunkt by Werner Bischof( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in German and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

2016 könnte der berühmte Schweizer Fotograf Werner Bischof (1916-1954) seinen 100. Geburtstag feiern. Zu diesem Anlass erscheint ein grosses Buch, das Leben und Schaffen des fotografischen Zeitzeugen aus einer neuen Perspektive erzählt: Erstmals werden neben vielen der weltbekannten Fotoikonen zahlreiche unveröffentlichte Aufnahmen, Zeichnungen, Briefe und Tagebucheinträge aus dem Nachlass präsentiert. Bischofs Lebensgeschichte, sein fotografisches Credo und die Reiseeindrücke werden somit in seinen eigenen Worten nacherzählt. Werner Bischof begann als Studio- und Werbefotograf, wandte sich dann aber früh der Natur- und Dokumentarfotograf zu. Nach dem Ende des Zweiten Weltkriegs bereiste der 29-Jährige Süddeutschland, Frankreich sowie die Niederlande und dokumentierte die existenzielle Not, die ihm dort begegnete. 1949 wurden seine Aufnahmen erstmals in der Zeitschrift Life veröffentlicht, und Bischof trat der neu gegründeten Arbeitsgemeinschaft Magnum Photos bei. Ab 1951 war er im Mittleren und im Fernen Osten unterwegs, wo er die Hungersnot in Bihar vor die Augen der Weltöffentlichkeit brachte und im Auftrag von Paris Match als Korrespondent über den Indochina-Krieg berichtete. 1953 machte er sich auf eine grosse Reise durch Nord- und Südamerika auf. Im Mai 1954 verunglückte er tödlich mit seinem Geländewagen in den peruanischen Anden. (Quelle: www.buchhandel.de)
