Picture of Camera Work
Publisher's Description
Alfred Stieglitz and Camera Work - “A magazine for the more advanced photographer”.

“The Time appearing ripe for the publication of an independent American photographic magazine devoted largely to the interests of pictorial photography, “Camera Work” makes its appearance as the logical outcome of the evolution of the photographic art. It is proposed to issue quarterly an illustrated publication which will appeal to the ever-increasing ranks of those who have faith in photography as a medium of individual expression, and, in addition, to make converts of many at present ignorant of its possibilities”.

With such unpretentious words did Alfred Stieglitz (1864-1946) open his brief editorial in the first issue of Camera Work published in January 1903. Frequently described as one of the most beautiful and influential publications in American art, Camera Work, which ran to 50 numbers between 1903-1917, is Stieglitz’s visual and written love poem to photography.

Picture of Street Seen - The Psychological Gesture in American Photography, 1940-1959
Publisher's Description
This in-depth and generously illustrated look at six postwar photographers, alongwith a selection of their predecessors and contemporaries, captures a unique and pivotal moment in American photographic history.

World War II and its aftermath ushered in a new era of artistic expression. Abstract Expressionism, film noir, Beat poetry, and the New Journalism are often considered responses to war’s shocking realities. Creative photographers responded to the same situation with images that broke the rules of conventional photographic technique. Street Seen, a companion volume to an exhibition, highlights six photographers who were prominent during and immediately following the war. Lisette Model’s unflinching look at the urban environment; Louis Faurer’s portraits of eccentrics in Times Square; Ted Croner’s haunting night images; Saul Leiter’s evocative glimpses of daily life; William Klein’s graphic, confrontational style; and Robert Frank’s documentation of American ideals gone awry-these and other beautifully reproduced photographs communicate the emotional resonance of everyday life in postwar America. An essay by Lisa Hostetler explores the aesthetic revolution that took place after the war and reveals the principles of spontaneity and subjective interpretation that guided these photographers as they sought to make sense of new realities. A timeline, brief biographies, and bibliography are also included in this valuable compilation of the mid-century’s most influential photography.

Picture of Digital Eye
Publisher's Description
Photographers who use digital technologies as tools for creative expression are driving the most exciting and transformative developments in today's photography.

Digital photographic and imaging technologies are the most recent development in an art and science whose history is one of constant technological innovation.

Picture of Freedom - A Photographic History of the African American Struggle
Publisher's Description
This momentous volume chronicles a photographic history of the African American struggle for freedom, combining a unique assimilation of rare images with thought-provoking scholarly analysis. Although the civil rights movement in America is conventionally identified with the period between 1954 and 1968 (from 17 May, 1954 when the Supreme Court outlawed segregation in public schools, through to the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr on 4 April, 1968), the struggle actually began long before that.

Slavery in American colonies was protested against as far back in time as the seventeenth century, though it was not until the mid-nineteenth century that the resistance built momentum. This photographic journey of the African American struggle for equality begins with abolitionists like Harriet Tubman, who escaped slavery in 1849 after which he was able to help others to freedom, and continues to the twenty-first century. Freedom chronicles the battle to eradicate slavery throughout the Civil War (1815), with profound sensitivity and acute attention to detail. Accordingly, it traces the evolution of the dual legacy of slavery - segregation and racism - after its official prohibition.

The struggle for equal rights involved countless small acts of personal bravery and sweeping proclamations of legal and moral import. It is the stuff of of hope and despair, vigilance and violence - realized in an arena of economics, politics and war. It engages black and white, the heroes and the unheard, public acts of protest and private moments of introspection in a world that is unforeseeably challenging.

This book comprises a passionate and poignant celebration of this historical struggle as a gradual phenomenon, substantiating incisive academic discourse with previously unpublished photographs of iconic status.

Picture of Inner Silence - The Portraits of Henri Cartier-Bresson
Publisher's Description
Henri Cartier-Bresson was perhaps the finest and most influential imagemaker of the 20th century, and his portraits are among his best-known work. Over a fifty-year period, he photographed some of the most eminent personalities of the era, as well as ordinary people, chosen as subjects because of their striking and unusual features.

In 2003, the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson, which was created to provide a permanent home for his collected works, opened in Paris. This book is published to coincide with the first exhibition at the Fondation that is drawn entirely from those archives, and it features both well-known images and previously unpublished portraits.

Each photograph has been chosen because it perfectly embodies Cartier-Bresson’s description of what he was attempting to communicate in his work: ‘Above all I look for an inner silence. I seek to translate the personality and not an expression.’ The portraits reproduced here – discreet, without artifice – confirm once more the singular gift of Cartier-Bresson, who instinctively knew in which revealing fraction of a second to click the shutter.

Picture of SILVER FOOTPRINT
Publisher's Description
As digital photography has become increasingly popular and dominant, the more traditional film-based black and white photography and the chemically produced photographic print have become uniquely repositioned in art, craft and culture. The art of photographic printing is now recognised as a serious craft, a rare skill that is much admired and respected. For Robin Bell this recognition as a craftsman of extraordinary ability has been earned over a career that stretches back some 35 years. He has worked with the biggest names in international photography including Bill Brandt, Eve Arnold, Don McCullin, Lee Miller, Ernst Haas, Terence Donovan, John Swannell, Ian Berry, Patrick Lichfield, Kevin Cummins, Tom Stoddart, Linda McCartney, Terry O’Neill, Norman Parkinson and Snowdon. Bell’s position as Britain’s leading black and white photographic printer is unassailable. This book brings together 126 photographs by these and other leading photographers whose work Bell has printed over the years. In his introduction David Litchfield, a central figure in photographic London in the 1980s and editor of Ritz newspaper and Image magazine, contextualises Bell’s career. Robin Bell himself provides the captions, describing both some of his favourite images and the most memorable photographs that he has printed over the years. Robin Bell’s printing and processing techniques are still as much sought-after as ever by a wide range of photographers and their estates. His expertise and his collaborative approach make him a popular choice for many photographers and this retrospective survey of his work portrays both his passion for images and for the Silver Gelatin print.

Publisher's Description
Our planet faces a new global crisis: the threat of ecological ruin. Sustainability, demography and climate change are all subjects that have come to the fore over recent decades and are now part of our collective consciousness.

C PHOTO MAGAZINE is proud to join this debate by gathering together works by various artists and intellectuals, all of whom tackle the subject from their own individual perspectives.

Picture of Political Images –Soviet Photographs
Publisher's Description
Many artists of the Russian avant-garde wholeheartedly embraced the Revolution as the triumph of a new socialist order. At the same time, they also assigned a special role to photography in the erection of a new society. The camera was confirmed as the ideal technical instrument for social reconfiguration and for the education of the population in an entirely altered way of life. The leaders of this movement developed all-encompassing programmes for the enlistment of photography to replace traditional perception with a new vision. Whereas this innovative potential of photography had developed rather freely during the 1920s, it was later exploited for propaganda. After 1936, all artistic work was absolutely subject to directives of the Party and the wishes of the dictator Stalin.

Daniela Mrázková assembled her unique collection of 234 original photographs by Arkadii Shaikhet, Georgii Zel’ma, Boris Ignatovich, Maks Al’pert, Georgii Petrusov and Aleksandr Rodchenko during the Cold War, to give a voice to “the other Soviet Union”. The pictures in this collection comprise a representative section of the era’s photography, yet they also reflect the unstoppable slide into the abyss of Stalinist despotism. Museum Ludwig, Cologne, bought the collection from Daniela Mrázková in 2008 and is now presenting it within this catalogue.

Picture of Photograph as Contemporary Art (Second edition)

Publisher's Description
From conceptual art’s use of the banal and ‘artless’ snapshot to the carefully constructed tableaux of Jeff Wall, this book considers the full range of ways that today’s artists engage with photography to make art.

Some artists, such as Sophie Calle and Erwin Wurm, use photography as a record of performances or everyday actions, while others like Yinka Shonibare and Gregory Crewdson stage invented scenes to tell fictional stories. Andreas Gursky, Thomas Demand and Rineke Dijkstra present a cool, seemingly objective view of the world, while Nan Goldin and Wolfgang Tillmans offer up intimate details of their private lives. For Luc Delahaye and Allan Sekula, photography is a means of creating documentary, while for Cindy Sherman and Gillian Wearing, the photograph becomes a repository of personal, social and cultural values in an image-saturated world.

This new edition brings the story of contemporary art photography up to date with a new chapter on artists who emphasize the physical and material properties of photography, who use photography as just one component in their pan-media practice, or who experiment with new modes of dissemination.

Featuring established artists such as Isa Genzken and Sherrie Levine alongside a younger generation including Florian Maier-Aichen, Anne Collier and Walead Beshty, The Photograph as Contemporary Art points to the durability, diversity and energy of art photography in the twenty-first century.

Picture of Witness Number 6 - Lee Friedlander
Publisher's Description
'Lee and I have shared a number of unconventionally interesting friends during our five decades together, people who show us an unusual way of living a life. I would put Raoul Hague on that list, maybe at the top. Beginning in the mid 1960s and continuing for more than 25 years, Lee and I and our children visited him at the Woodstock, New York, cabin where he lived and worked. To enter Hague’s cabin was entering his universe. It was not simply a dwelling and a studio but a carefully organized way of life, a reflection of an esthetic ideal. All he did, whether work or pleasure, was driven by this ideal, which he created for himself and carried out without compromise. Hague was the quintessential storybook artist'. — from the text by Maria Friedlander.

Witness Number 6 provides a portrait – in 157 photographs by Lee Friedlander, and accompanying essay by Maria Friedlander – of the sculptor Raoul Hague. The Friedlanders knew Hague for over two and a half decades, and their deep fondness for, and mutual trust with, the Armenian-born sculptor comes through in every image and word of this gorgeous addition to JGS’s Witness series.
