Picture of New York in Photobooks

Publisher's Description

New York in Photobooks gathers and studies a selection of images of the capital of the twentieth century, the most photogenic and most photographed city in history. In these images from the books selected (only a fraction of those in existence), the city of skyscrapers is captured from construction thereof in the 1930s to the destruction of the World Trade Center in 2001, alongside the urban life of the New Yorkers themselves, recorded in a model style of street photography. Many of the books are the work of European and Japanese photographers, who discovered multiple perspectives (human, cultural, social, economic…) from which to view the city that shaped the twentieth century.

New York in Photobooks is the catalogue of a traveling exhibition curated by Horacio Fernández, who is also the editor of the book: a collaborative effort in which, in addition to the many images, there are texts by numerous photography scholars.

The photographers represented include Berenice Abbott, Nobuyoshi Araki, Cecil Beaton, Mario Bucovich, Roy DeCarava, Bruce Davidson, Raymond De-pardon, Juan Fresán, Bruce Gilden, György Lörinczy, Lewis Hine, Evelyn Hofer, Karol Kallay, André Kertész, William Klein Helen Levitt, Danny Lyon, Daido Moriyama, Ugo Mulas, Robert Rauschenberg, Kees Scherer, Aaron Siskind, Weegee, Kojima Yasutaka, Ruiko Yoshida, among others.

Picture of People Knitting: A Century of Photographs

Publisher's Description

People Knitting is a charming tribute in vintage photographs and printed ephemera to the ever-popular, often all-consuming, craft of knitting. When women posed with their knitting in the earliest nineteenth-century photographs, it demonstrated their virtue and skill as homemakers. Later, knitting became fashionable among the wealthy as a sign of culture and artistic ability. During the two world wars, images of nurses, soldiers, prisoners, and even knitting clubs composed of very serious small boys'all with heads bent down, intent on knitting items (especially socks) for the troops'abounded. In the 1950s and 1960s, as snapshots became ubiquitous, knitters took on a jauntier air, posing with handiwork held proudly aloft. People Knitting is a quirky and fascinating gift for the knitter in your life.

Picture of Total Records: Photography and the Art of the Album Cover

Publisher's Description

The history of photography is teeming with portraits of musicians made iconic by their album covers: Thelonious Monk by W. Eugene Smith, Miles Davis by Irving Penn, Grace Jones by Jean-Paul Goude, Laurie Anderson by Robert Mapplethorpe.

The history of album cover art also includes collaborations between prominent figures, such as Mick Rock and David Bowie, Annie Leibovitz and John Lennon, Lee Friedlander and John Coltrane, Nobuyoshi Araki and Björk, Anton Corbijn and U2, and Robert Frank with the Rolling Stones—not to mention Francis Wolff ’s legendary work with Blue Note, the record label he cofounded. Musicians and designers have also sifted through photography’s rich history for powerful photographs to match and keep company with the music enclosed within: Anders Petersen’s classic Café Lehmitz portrait of a man nestling into a woman’s bosom stands in for Tom Waits on the cover of Swordfishtrombones; Big Star and Alex Chilton push the listener into a corner with William Eggleston’s Red Ceiling on their album Radio City; Rage Against the Machine goes for the jugular on its self-titled album with the anonymous Vietnam War photo of the self-immolation of a Buddhist monk. Images like the Abbey Road crosswalk are deeply inscribed in our collective memory, yet few details are known about the photographer. All of these—and more—are included in this compendium of electrifying images and the albums they grace.

Includes albums featuring images by David Bailey, Guy Bourdin, Anton Corbijn, Roy DeCarava, Robert Frank, Lee Friedlander, Nan Goldin, Luigi Ghirri, Jean- Paul Goude, Brian Griffin, William Klein, David LaChapelle, Danny Lyon, Robert Mapplethorpe, Jean-Baptiste Mondino, Ryan McGinley, Helmut Newton, Martin Parr, Anders Petersen, Pierre et Gilles, Hiro, Cindy Sherman, W.

Publisher's Description

After World War II the California School of Fine Arts (CSFA) in San Francisco hired renowned photographer Ansel Adams to establish one of the first fine art photography departments in the United States. The caliber of teachers and guest instructors assembled there under the new directorship of Douglas McAgy was unmatched, and the school was one of the most avant-garde art schools of its time. On hand were photographers Adams and Minor White, along with Edward Weston, Dorothea Lange, Imogen Cunningham, Lisette Model, Nancy and Beaumont Newhall, and Homer Page.

Three former students of Adams and White—William Heick, Ira H. Latour and C. Cameron Macauley, later known as the “Three Musketeers”—began planning a book that would focus on CSFA’s photography department, covering the years between 1945 and 1955, the period known as “The Golden Decade.” It was a lucky coincidence when Ken Ball and his wife Victoria Whyte Ball (whose father, Don Whyte, had bequeathed them an abundance of negatives and contact prints from his student years at CSFA) joined them. Together this team has embarked on an important journey into photography’s past that is embodied in this book.

Picture of Canadians

Publisher's Description

With an introduction by Douglas Coupland, The Canadians was curated by Roger Hargreaves, Jill Offenbeck and Stefanie Petrilli

The Canadians playfully, affectionately and informatively re-imagines one of the most revered photography books of the 20th century, Robert Frank’s The Americans. The source for the imagery is the print archive of The Globe and Mail, over 20,000 prints, all of which have been donated to the newly-formed Canadian Institute of Photography housed within the National Gallery of Canada. Eighty of these photographs have been selected for this book and will also form the basis of a national touring exhibition. These functionary press photographs, made to illustrate news stories (such as the state of the roads after a severe winter, a politician on the campaign trail or the opening of a new laundromat) held no pretensions to be works of photographic art. Taken together, however, they describe Canadian culture during a time of transformation.

The book begins with an introduction by Douglas Coupland, bringing together themes illuminated in these photographs and taking us on a guided tour of a Canada gone but not forgotten.

Overseas deliveries  Please note that, as this is a heavy item, overseas postage will be charged at twice our standard rates.

Publisher's Description

Newly revised histories of photography as recorded via the photobook have added enormously to our understanding of the medium’s culture, particularly in places that are often marginalized, such as Latin America and Africa. However, until now, only a handful of Chinese books have made it onto historians’ short lists. Yet China has a fascinating history of photobook publishing, and The Chinese Photobook reveals for the first time the richness and diversity of this heritage. This now available in a smaller size, more accessibly priced hardcover edition, volume is based on a collection compiled by Martin Parr and Beijing- and London-based Dutch photographer team WassinkLundgren. And while the collection was inspired initially by Parr’s interest in propaganda books and in finding key works of socialist realist photography from the early days of the Communist Party and the Cultural Revolution era, the selection of books includes key volumes published as early as 1900, as well as contemporary volumes by emerging Chinese photographers.

Picture of Outsiders: American Photography and Film 1950s-1980s

Publisher's Description

Idealists, outsiders, and those brave enough to be themselves, as depicted by visionary photographers and filmmakers including Diane Arbus and Nan Goldin, reveal another America. A visual tour through life at the margins in the United States from the late 1950s to the early 1980s, Outsiders highlights the work of iconic photographers and filmmakers who profoundly changed the image of American culture. Kenneth Anger, Diane Arbus, Shirley Clarke, Nan Goldin, Danny Lyon, Garry Winogrand, and their contemporaries challenged rigid postwar society with their powerful films and photographs. Lyon’s travels with Chicago biker gangs and Arbus’s swordswallowers form a dramatic counterpoint to a trove of midcentury images from Casa Susanna, a community of cross-dressers enjoying country life en femme. Outsiders captures diverse and significant subcultures and interests, united by each subject’s will to determine his or her own identity. Accompanying the images, essays by curators and critics explore American underground cinema, street photography, the distinct countercultures of New York and Los Angeles, and the spectacle of everyday living in a time of political and cultural turmoil.

Picture of Blind Photographer, The

Publisher’s Description

The blind photographer cannot see a butterfly perched perfectly still on a flower, a bowl of sweet-smelling fruit, or a child's rattle on a darkened floor, but the mind's eye is sharply focused. How then, do blind or partially sighted people capture such extraordinary images? The photographs in this revelatory book suggest a deeper truth: that blindness is itself a kind of seeing, and that those who can see are often blind to the strangeness and beauty of the world around them. As the blind photographer Evgen Bavcar writes, "Photography must belong to the blind, who in their daily existence have learned to become the masters of camera obscura." Through the photographs of more than fifty blind or partially sighted people from around the world, this exhilarating book---the first to explore this phenomenon in all its vibrancy and diversity---will make you see differently.

Publisher's Description

Aimed at children between the ages of nine and twelve, Seeing Things is a wonderful introduction to photography that asks how photographers transform ordinary things into meaningful moments. In this book, acclaimed and beloved photographer Joel Meyerowitz takes readers on a journey through the power and magic of photography: its abilities to freeze time, tell a story, combine several layers into one frame, and record life’s fleeting and beautiful moments. The book features the work of masters such as William Eggleston, Mary Ellen Mark, Helen Levitt, and Walker Evans, among many others. Each picture is accompanied by a short commentary, encouraging readers to look closely and use their imagination to understand key ideas in photography such as light, gesture, composition—and, ultimately, how there is wonder all around us when viewed through the lens.

Picture of Photographer's Cookbook, The

Publisher's Description

In the late 1970s, the George Eastman Museum approached a group of photographers to ask for their favorite recipes and food-related photographs to go with them, in pursuit of publishing a cookbook. Playing off George Eastman’s own famous recipe for lemon meringue pie, as well as former director Beaumont Newhall’s love of food, the cookbook grew from the idea that photographers’ talent in the darkroom must also translate into special skills in the kitchen. The recipes do not disappoint, with Robert Adams’s Big Sugar Cookies, Ansel Adams’s Poached Eggs in Beer, Richard Avedon’s Royal Pot Roast, Imogen Cunningham’s Borscht, William Eggleston’s Cheese Grits Casserole, Stephen Shore’s Key Lime Pie Supreme, and Ed Ruscha’s Cactus Omelet, to name a few. The book was never published, and the materials have remained in George Eastman Museum's collection ever since. Now, forty years later, this extensive and distinctive archive of untouched recipes and photographs are published in The Photographer’s Cookbook for the first time. The book provides a time capsule of contemporary photographers of the 1970s—many before they made a name for themselves—as well as a fascinating look at how they depicted food, family, and home, taking readers behind the camera and into the hearts, and stomachs of some of photography’s most important practitioners.

Overseas deliveries  Please note that, as this is a heavy item, overseas postage will be charged at twice our standard rates.

Publisher's Description

It’s no surprise that some of the world’s finest photographers have worked in and around a bicycle race at some point in their careers. Cycling provides the perfect subject for reportage, social documentary and street photography because it happens in real time and real life.

It isn’t a traditional stadium or circuit sport: the action happens on the street outside your house, in city centres where people live or in the mountains where people go to escape. The accessibility of cycling and photography means they share interesting parallels, culturally and historically. The Magnum archive contains work that is exceptional on both counts.

Thematic chapters each feature one ‘story’ of an iconic moment, event or scene: the Tour de France, track racing in the velodrome, winter training and the revelry of the fans and crowds. Images are by a variety of iconic photographers, including Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, Guy Le Querrec and Harry Gruyaert.

Picture of Family

Publisher's Description

Drawing from the very same impulses that compel us all to capture on film the members of our family, this book brings to light the entirely unique response that photographers have through their work towards their own families, and the significance of this work in the broader context of their photographic work.

Family is an intimate compilation of almost 200 photographs taken by a wide range of photographers, that reflects consciously on the emotions and experiences wrought and woven into the family unit. It includes the work of established photographers such as Sally Mann and David Bailey, as well as rarely seen images from the families of iconic figures such as like Dorothea Lange. It presents the work of some of the earliest photographers to focus on the subject of family, alongside that of photographers taking pictures of their family in the twenty-first century.

This book is far more than a sociological exploration of how the concept of the family has evolved with the passage of time: it signifies a timeless curiosity about the notion of the family, as well as the strongly personal element of autobiography that feeds this intrigue. Family embodies an extensive reflection on the diversity of meanings behind our own family photographs and pays homage to the long-standing relationship between family and photography. The typically private and introvert sphere of familial relationships is revealed to us through this compilation of photographs, through whose vision we are reminded of the underlying energies that drive our most intimate and personal emotional ties.

The book is organized neither chronologically nor by theme and chapter; rather, many of the ideas and themes we associate with family photographs are discernible through sequenced stories and the juxtaposition of individual images. Each selection of photographs is consolidated by a succinct commentary at the end of the book. Thought-provoking, intensely evocative and softly poignant, Family is both sensitive and stigmatizing.

Picture of Through Women's Eyes: From Diane Arbus to Letizia Battaglia

Publisher's Description

This thorough and accessible introduction to the greatest women photographers from the 20th century to today features the most important works of 25 artists. Women have played an important role in the development of photography, often pushing boundaries and defying social convention. Through Women’s Eyes showcases the most influential women photographers of the modern and contemporary eras: from Diane Arbus and Nan Goldin to Yoko Ono and Roni Horn, along with many others. The artists featured in this book offer us their own interpretations of the world, filtered through the camera, and show us what is worth looking at among the barrage of images that bombard us. Their strength is the ability to combine languages--not only photography, but elements of cinema and painting as well, resulting in a collection of views that encompass the human experience.

Overseas deliveries  Please note that, as this is a heavy item, overseas postage will be charged at twice our standard rates.

Publisher's Description

In 2012, the Eastman Kodak Company declared bankruptcy. That same year, a group of ten photographers from Magnum Photos—Jim Goldberg, Bruce Gilden, Susan Meiselas, Martin Parr, Paolo Pellegrin, Alessandra Sanguinetti, Alec Soth, Larry Towell, Alex Webb, and Donovan Wylie, plus Chien-Chi Chang, who documented the process in audio and video—established a temporary base of operations in Rochester, New York, former home to the once-dominant manufacturer of photographic film. Their goal: to create both a documentary archive of that city’s culture and landscape, and a photo-based experience engaging its residents; and to investigate a community of picture-makers comprised not only of Eastman Kodak, but also the Visual Studies Workshop, George Eastman House, Rochester Institute of Technology, and the citizensof Rochester. Over the course of almost three weeks, photographers, students, faculty, and residents worked together to create a visual record of the city and its people at a time of significant transition. Nathan Lyons, founding director of the Visual Studies Workshop, describes the resultas “not only a major documentary project, but a celebration of photography within the city that had for years been a center of imaging technologies.”

Upon arrival in Rochester, Martin Parr gave each photographer the task of assembling one hundred photographs to form the basis of an archive. Rochester 585/716 presents all one thousand images, together with commentary by poets Cornelius Eady and Marie Howe, art historian and photo theorist Laura Wexler, and photographer and educator Nathan Lyons. Five sets of the images were printed as a portfolio, each of which now resides in major private and public collections. Two artist proof sets were also created, one of which will be dispersed via the one thousand copies of this publication. Each individual copy contains a single loose print, selected at random from this additional set.

Postcards from America is an ongoing, collaborative project. Since 2011, a loose group of Magnum photographers—including the eleven featured in this volume— has periodically gathered in locations across America to experiment with the notion of working together to create a new documentary archive of the United States.
