Look at me : photographs from Mexico City by Jed Fielding( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sight is central to the medium of photography. But what happens when the subjects of photographic portraits cannot look back at the photographer or even see their own image? An in-depth pictorial study of blind schoolchildren in Mexico, Look At Me draws attention to (and distinctions between) the activity of sight and the awareness of form." "Combining aspects of his acclaimed street work with an innovative approach to portraiture, Chicago-based photographer Jed Fielding has concentrated closely on these children's features and gestures, probing the enigmatic boundaries between surface and interior. Design, composition, and the play of light and shadow are central elements in these photographs, but the images are much more than formal experiments; they confront disability in a way that affirms life. Fielding's sightless subjects project a vitality that seems to extend beyond the limits of self-consciousness. In collaborative, joyful participation with the children, he has made pictures that reveal essential gestures of absorption and the basic expressions of our creatureliness. Fielding's work achieves what only great art, and particularly great portraiture can: it launches and then complicates a process of identification across the barriers that separate us from each other. Look At Me contains more than sixty arresting images from which we often want to look away, but into which we are nevertheless drawn by their deep humanity and palpable tenderness. This is a monograph of uncommon significance by an important American photographer."--Jacket

The park by Kohei Yoshiyuki( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kohei Yoshiyuki's nighttime photographs, taken with infrared film and flash in Japan's Shinjuku, Yoyogi and Aoyama Parks during the 1970s, capture the illicit sexual encounters, both heterosexual and homosexual, that frequently occurred there under the cloak of darkness. The Park's images not only reveal hidden sexual exploits but also uncover many spectators ardently lurking in the darkness, waiting to join in--and quickly raise issues of voyeurism and surveillance. In The Photobook: A History, Volume II, Martin Parr speaks to the societal relevance of this series, calling it, 'A brilliant piece of social documentation, catching perfectly the loneliness, sadness and desperation that so often accompany sexual or human relationships in a big, hard metropolis like Tokyo.'" -- viewed December 29, 2020

The male ideal : Lon of New York and the masculine physique by Reed Massengill( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Decades before Bruce Weber or Herb Ritts picked up a camera, one photographer created a body of work that defined the masculine ideal for a generation. Alonzo Hanagan, better known as Lon of New York, was a groundbreaking, and daring, artist of his time. At the height of his career in the 1940s and 1950s, his images of the male nude were not just taboo but illegal. Twice his studio was raided and his negative archive destroyed by police. Now, for the first time in more than forty years, this comprehensive collection recovers much of that lost archive with a selection of more than 170 photos. Suffused with a playfulness and vulnerability, these erotic images evoke an era of greater innocence-and supression-when male identity was drawn along very different lines than it is today. A revelation about gay history and photography's history, The Male Ideal features a forward by respected Village Voice art critic Vince Aletti, who explains Lon's unique achievement
Peter Hujar : lost downtown by Peter Hujar( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Lower East Side between 1972 and 1985, filled with artists, wannabe artists and hangers-on, was a community of the misbegotten gathered from every town in America and relocated in the mean streets between Broadway and the Bowery, and Peter Hujar was right in the midst of it. Nothing but talent, flamboyance, rank gender-bending mockery and arch irony supported these artists: some made their names, many came to grief and a few made art. In those days, the gutted streets of the Lower East Side resembled a war-zone. Though some established artists had passed through, Rauschenberg and Johns, John Cage and Merce Cunningham, almost everyone lived and worked on the extreme outer margins of money and art, penniless and unknown. As a community, downtown New York was a counterstatement to the rich New York of the banks, museums, media, corporations and the art world itself. That downtown New York is gone: time, gentrification, disease and death have taken their toll and turned this vibrant epoch into a chapter in art history. But before it vanished, its extravagant cast sat for Peter Hujar's camera, and with this volume, that community is vividly brought to life. Featured are Charles Ludlum, David Wojnarowicz, Edwin Denby, Susan Sontag, Paul Thek, Divine, Robert Wilson, John Waters, William S. Burroughs, Ray Johnson, Fran Lebowitz, Remy Charlip, Joe Brainard and many others. Peter Hujar (1934-87) was born in Trenton, New Jersey, and moved to Manhattan to work in the magazine, advertising and fashion industries. He documented the vibrant cultural scene of downtown New York throughout the 1970s and 1980s. In 1976 he published Portraits in Life and Death, with an introduction by Susan Sontag

Mark Cohen : dark knees by Mark Cohen( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in French and English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ouvrage publié à l'occasion de l'exposition "Mark Cohen : Dark Knees" présenté au BAL à Paris du 27 septembre au 8 décembre 2013.00Mark Cohen est né en 1943 à Wiles-Barres, petite ville minière de Pennsylvannie. Au début des années 70, tout en s'inscrivant dans la droite ligne de la "street photography", genre dominant de la photographie américaine à cette période, il invente une écriture singulière marquée par un agencement fulgurant des lignes et, au même moment, une saisie instinctive de la qualité organique, sculpturale des formes. Dans son atelier, se font face deux photographies : l'une de la période surréaliste d'Henri Cartier-Bresson et l'autre d'Aaron Siskind. On retrouve la géométrie élégante de l'un et la plénitude aride de l'autre dans l'oeuvre de Mark Cohen, exposée par John Szarkowski au MoMA dès 1973
Kohei Yoshiyuki : the park by Kohei Yoshiyuki( Book )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For his notorious 'Park' photos, taken by night in Tokyo?s Shinjuku, Yoyogi, and Aoyama parks during the 1970s, Kohei Yoshiyuki used a 35mm camera, infrared film and flash to capture a secret community of lovers and voyeurs. His pictures document the people who gathered in these parks at night for clandestine trysts, as well as the many spectators lurking in the bushes who watched?and sometimes participated in?these couplings.0With their raw, snapshot-like quality, these images not only uncover the hidden sexual exploits of their subjects, both same-sex and heterosexual, but they also serve as a chronicle of a Japan we rarely see. As Martin Parr writes in 'The Photobook: A History Volume II', The Park is?a brilliant piece of social documentation, capturing perfectly the loneliness, sadness and desperation that so often accompany sexual or human relationships in a big, hard metropolis like Tokyo.?0This newly designed, comprehensive edition of 'Kohei Yoshiyuki: The Park' brings this collectible classic back into print with eight never-before-seen images, as well as documentation of the sold-out 1980 Japanese zines that predated the 2007 Hatje Cantz/Yossi Milo edition
