Circus sideshow : Antonin Kratochvil by Antonin Kratochvil( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in Czech and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Created in 1973–74 and previously unpublished in English in its entirety, Circus Sideshow, by Czech-born American photojournalist Antonin Kratochvil (born 1947), offers an amazing pageant of tightrope walkers, jugglers, snake women, giants, dwarves, contortionists and fire eaters at a circus in Gibsonton, Florida, a small coastal town near Tampa. The town was then known as a winter vacation hotspot for circuses, a place to recharge before setting out on their spring and summer cross-country tours. Visiting the mobile homes, caravans and trailers of the performers, and walking through their narrow alleys and circus tents, Kratochvil was able to photograph freely and intimately, and his black-and-white photographs testify to his vision of them as people expelled from society, but [who] were able to maintain their dignity. In 1974 he sent his photographs to the New York editorial office of American Photo, which the magazine’s art director, Jean-Jacques Naudet, printed as a ten-page report. Circus Sideshow documents an amazing lost American subculture."-- from publisher
Theodor Pištěk : Člověk a stroj = Man and machine by Petr Volf( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in Czech and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This lavishly illustrated book is dedicated to the work of legendary Czech artist Theodor Pistek, with a focus on his paintings, reliefs, and installations related to cars, engines, automotive components, and pieces thereof. The book includes several of his iconic paintings (Great Landscape, Ecce homo, Visiting the Harrachs), which have become classics of photorealism, as well as examples of fantastical objects (Head of the Medusa, Gemini) and original three-dimensional installations (the monumental Reliquary). In addition, the book includes much new information that presents Pistek not only as an artist but also as a multifaceted athlete and sportsman, in particular as a talented racecar driver who even competed for the national team. Author Petr Volf also looks at Pistek's film-related work, whose highpoint is his Academy Award for the costume design for director Milos Forman's 'Amadeus', but which also includes screenwriting (for Frantisek Vlácil's unfinished 'The Rally') and design (the demonic race car for director Juraj Herz's 'Ferat Vampire')
Metropolight by David Gaberle( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Metropolight is young photographer David Gaberle's debut publication. Although the book presents his first-ever comprehensive photographic series, the result feels eminently mature. The pictures were taken in hypermodern cities such as Tokyo, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Seoul, Sydney, London, and New York. Gaberle observes alleyways, stairwells, parks, train stations, subway cars, galleries, and bridges, slowly revealing the hidden order that exists between the world of things and the world of people. In his introduction to the book, author Petr Volf writes: "The photographs' range of color carries symbolic meanings, and the lights of the visited cities - whether natural, direct, or artificial - become lighthouses which make us feel safe."
