America and the tintype by Steven Kasher( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most intriguing and little studied forms of nineteenth-century photography is the tintype. Introduced in 1856 as a low-cost alternative to the daguerreotype and the albumen print, the tintype was widely marketed from the 1860s through the first decades of the twentieth century as the most popular photographic medium. The picture-making preference of the people, it was almost never used for celebrity portraiture: It was affordable, portable, unique and available almost everywhere. Because of its ubiquity, the tintype provides a startlingly candid record of the political upheavals that rocked the four decades following the American Civil War-and the personal anxieties they induced. As this book's author, Steven Kasher, argues, the tintype studio became a kind of performance space in which sitters could act out their personal identities. Sitters brought to the tintype studio not just their family and friends but also the tools of their trade, costumes, toys, stuffed animals and other such props. Often they would enact stereotypes and fantasies that reflected or challenged conventional gender, race and class roles. Surprisingly, the tintype was almost exclusively an American phenomenon, rarely used in other countries, and this book demonstrates how this modest form of photography provides extraordinary insight into the development of national attitudes and characteristics in the formative years of the early Modern era. Featured in this book are more than 200 remarkable examples of tintypes, mostly drawn from the Permanent Collection of the International Center of Photography in New York

Susan Meiselas : in history by Susan Meiselas( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the 1970s, questions of ethics raised by documentary practice have been central to debates in photography. Perhaps no other photographer has so closely and consistently represented and participated in these debates than Susan Meiselas. An American photographer best known for her work covering the political upheavals in Central America in the 1970s and '80s, Meiselas's process has evolved in radical and challenging ways as she has grappled with pivotal questions about her relationship to her subjects, the use and circulation of her images in the media, and the relationship of images to history and memory. Her insistent engagement with these concerns has positioned her as a leading voice in the debate on contemporary documentary practice."--Jacket
Hiroshima : Ground Zero 1945 by Erin Barnett( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After the United States detonated an atomic bomb at Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, the U.S. government restricted the circulation of images of the bomb's deadly effect. President Truman dispatched some 1,150 military personnel and civilians, including photographers, to record the destruction as part of the United States Strategic Bombing Survey. The goal of the Survey's Physical Damage Division was to photograph and analyze methodically the impact of the atomic bomb on various building materials surrounding the blast site, the first "Ground Zero." The haunting, once-classified images of absence and annihilation formed the basis for civil defense architecture in the United States. This exhibition includes approximately 60 contact prints drawn from a unique archive of more than 700 photographs in the collection of the International Center of Photography. The exhibition is organized by Erin Barnett, Assistant Curator of Collections
Miroslav Tichý by Miroslav Tichý( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Few stories in the history of photography are as astonishing and as compelling as that of the octogenarian Czech photographer Miroslav Tichý. With crude homemade cameras fashioned out of cardboard and duct tape, Tichý took several thousand pictures of the women of his Moravian hometown of Kyjov throughout the 1960s and '70s. These pictures of women going about their daily business are at once banal and extraordinary, transforming the ordinary moments of work and leisure into small epiphanies. Blurred and off-kilter, his photographs have a striking contemporaneity, resembling the early paintings of Gerhard Richter or the photographs of Sigmar Polke. Printed imperfectly and deliberately battered, they evince a surprising retrograde or even antimodernist feeling, which, in the context of the Cold War atmosphere of provincial Czechoslovakia, just before and after the liberalizing moment of the Prague Spring (1968), undoubtedly constituted a kind of oblique political provocation, a nose-thumbing response to the progressive realist perfectionism of official Soviet culture. The catalogue Miroslav Tichý accompanies an exhibition of the same title at the International Center of Photography organized by Chief Curator Brian Wallis. Critical evaluations by Brian Wallis, Roman Buxbaum, Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, and Richard Prince introduce more than 250 plates and illustrations."--Publisher's website

Atta Kim : On-air by Atta Kim( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This publication surveys the remarkable photographic work of the Korean artist Atta Kim. Notable for their cinematic scale, dramatic composition, and meticulous technical quality, his photographs count among the most high-impact works to be found anywhere. But their visual seductiveness is ultimately a kind of lure, which the artist employs to draw viewers into unfamiliar realms of speculative thought." "The present book provides a comprehensive overview of Atta Kim's photographs since the mid-1980s, with special emphasis on his current ON-AIR Project. In the ON-AIR photographs, the artist employs extremely long exposures, sometimes lasting as long as twenty-four hours, to create works that explore fundamental questions of time and perception. Through highly unconventional images of such varied subjects as erotic coupling, the militarized landscape along the Korean DMZ, and the seemingly deserted midday precincts of Times Square, he suggests that it is possible for us to imagine duration in ways that are radically different from our everyday experience. In a wide-ranging interview that appears in this volume, Atta Kim explains how such photographic works have arisen from his long-term engagement with philosophical, spiritual, and technological questions."--BOOK JACKET

First photographs : William Henry Fox Talbot and the birth of photography by William Henry Fox Talbot( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First Photographs is an eyewitness to the origins of modern photography. This book - the only monograph on Talbot to be supported by the curator of the Fox Talbot Museum - includes many never-before-published images of landscapes, architectural studies, and portraiture from Talbot's personal archive and selections from his detailed research notebooks made during the 1830s and 1840s, currently housed at the Fox Talbot Museum at Lacock Abbey in Chippenham, England." "In addition to his technological contributions, Talbot's own photographs represent exceptional and prescient artistic achievement. Arthur Ollman, director of the Museum of Photographic Arts, San Diego, contributes an innovative analysis of both the aesthetic and social significance of Talbot's first photographic image, the "Oriel Window," through a remarkable evocation of Talbot's late-life reflection one sunny afternoon beneath his window in Lacock Abbey. Curator Carol McCusker considers how the women of the Lacock household influenced Talbot's aesthetic choices. First Photographs also includes a biography and timeline of Talbot's eventful life and revolutionary work by the preeminent Talbot scholar Michael Gray."--Jacket
