Reading Magnum : a visual archive of the modern world by Steven D Hoelscher ( Book )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Magnum Photos archive-a collection of more than 200,000 photographs by some of the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries' greatest image makers-is the most comprehensive accumulation of prints made by the distinguished photo cooperative. Consistently and with striking artistry, Magnum's photographers have done more than simply document the far reaches of the globe; they have helped shape generations' understanding of the world around them. While many of its photographs have been widely published, until now no one has examined the Magnum archive itself. In Reading Magnum, experts from several fields investigate this visual archive, now residing at the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas at Austin, to discover how a select, influential group of visual authors has used the camera for an ambitious project of cultural interpretation and social commentary.0Exhibition: Ransom Center Galleries, Austin, USA (10.09.2013-05.01.2014)

In whose name : the Islamic world after 9/11 by Abbas ( Book )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"On 11 September 2001, the photographer Abbas watched the Twin Towers fall in New York - live on Siberian TV, thirteen time zones away. It spurred him to begin a journey through the Islamic world that would last seven years. The photographs published here are the final result of that project. Born in Iran, Abbas casts a sharp eye over a world seen by very few from the West until now. Seeking out people and places that have been overlooked by others, he reveals far more - and in greater depth - than photojournalists who focus on flashpoints or who race to break the latest news. Abbas is acclaimed for his special ability to freeze a moment in a particular social or political conflict, to frame actions or gestures that instantly become emblematic: what he calls 'the suspended moment'. Accompanied by Abbas's own candid personal travel diary, these photographs convey his robust enquiring spirit. 'I wanted to see how the umma [world community of Muslims] reacted to the jihadists in their midst, ' Abbas says. 'How does Islam, a religion, sustain a political ideology - Islamism?' Recording a route through sixteen countries - including Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Israel and Palestine, Turkey, Indonesia, Thailand, Kenya and Zanzibar - Abbas's pictures swell with the undercurrents of global disturbance, uncertainty and threat. Yet there are gleams of optimism, too - a wedding, an impromptu ball game, children playing - that remind us of Abbas's gift as a humane interpreter of our existence. Abbas is widely recognized as one of the most exceptional photographers of our time. These images represent some of the most memorable and compelling work he has produced."--Publisher's description
