Let truth be the prejudice : W. Eugene Smith, his life and photographs by Ben Maddow ( Book )
8 editions published between 1985 and 1998 in English and held by 937 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Let Truth Be The Prejudice documents the life and work of W. Eugene Smith, a man whose work expanded the range and depth of photography, bringing new aesthetic and moral power to the photo essay. Smith was born in 1918 in Wichita, Kansas, and raised according to traditional American values, believing in the nobility of America and the injustice of war. He began taking pictures with his mother's camera while still a boy and continued this practice throughout his schooling. In 1937 his burning ambition took him to New York City, where his rise as a professional photographer was meteoric."--Amazon

Josef Sudek, poet of Prague : a photographer's life by Anna Fárová ( Book )
1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In a career that spanned nearly seven decades, Josef Sudek, one of the masters of twentieth-century photography, created his own solitary world of shadow and light, of theme and variation. Exquisitely reproduced in tritone, the more than one hundred images in this monograph convey the spirit of Prague as well as the spirit of Sudek. The photographs are complemented with a text by Anna Farova, one of the foremost photography curators and writers in Eastern Europe and a longtime friend of Sudek's. She traces his life and work, beginning with the devastation of World War I, in which he lost an arm, through his development as a photographer and a central figure in Prague's artistic life. Sudek's passionate, impressionist images, as well as his penchant for exploration, earned him the affectionate title "Poet of Prague."

Tina Modotti : photographs by Sarah M Lowe ( Book )
2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is the first serious art-historical study of the photographic achievement of Tina Modotti (1896-1942). Modotti's photographic career spanned a brief but intense seven years (1923-30) when she lived in Mexico and became committed to revolutionary Communism. The beautifully reproduced duotone images in this book include portraits, still lifes (among them, Modotti's memorable "revolutionary icons" incorporating an ear of dried corn, a bandolier, a sickle, and a guitar), Mexican workers, folk art, street photographs, architectural studies, and flowers and plants. They have been selected to represent the full range of Modotti's esthetic imagination, and nearly half have rarely or never been reproduced before. In an informative biographical and critical essay based on exhaustive research, Sarah M. Lowe, curator, art historian, author of a book about Frida Kahlo, and contributor to Abrams' The Diary of Frida Kahlo, explores the forces that shaped Modotti's early family influences in Italy; her formative experiences in the bohemian communities of San Francisco and Los Angeles in the 1910s; the relationship with legendary American photographer Edward Weston that provided her with her first photographic training; and the artistic and political circles she entered in Mexico. Lowe casts new light on Modotti's Mexican years, describing her relationships with a constellation of powerful artists, critics, activists, and journalists. Tina Modotti: Photographs is the catalogue of the first comprehensive exhibition of Modotti's work, organized on the occasion of the centennial of her birth by the Philadelphia Museum of Art and traveling to the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art
