Unfamiliar streets : the photographs of Richard Avedon, Charles Moore, Martha Rosler, and Philip-Lorca DiCorcia by Katherine A Bussard( Book )
4 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
City scenes have been chronicled in photographs since the early 1800s, but street photography as traditionally defined has captured a relatively narrow field of these images. Revolutionizing the history of street photography, Unfamiliar Streets explores the work of Richard Avedon (1923-2004), Charles Moore (1931-2010), Martha Rosler (b. 1943), and Philip-Lorca DiCorcia (b. 1951), four American photographers whose careers in fashion, photojournalism, conceptual art, and contemporary art are not usually associated with the genre. Bussard's lively and engaging text, a timely response to a growing interest in urban photography, challenges the traditional understanding of street photography and makes original and important connections among urban culture, social history, and the visual arts, constructing a new historical model for understanding street photography. Illustrated with more than one hundred images, this book provides an interpretation of a compelling genre that is as fresh as its consideration of the city streets themselves, sites of commerce, dispossession, desire, demonstration, power, and spectacle.--Publisher description

For over half a century, photographs by Richard Avedon have filled the pages of countless magazines and been displayed in the world's finest galleries and museums. Avedon changed the course of fashion photography in the 1940's and '50s with his seminal spreads for Harper's Bazaar. Simultaneously, he was reinventing the sometimes-staid genre of photographic portraiture, capturing vivid images of both celebrities and the non-famous that revealed the essence of his subjects. Featuring a wealth of rare visual material ranging from personal photographs to never-before-seen prints, this documentary also includes exclusive interviews with actor and director Andre Gregory, director Mike Nichols, fashion editor Polly Allen Mellen, editor Tina Brown and Avedon himself
