Anthony Hernandez by Anthony Hernandez( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the early 1970s, when he hit the streets of Los Angeles with a 35mm camera and the basic technical knowledge he had acquired in darkroom classes at East Los Angeles College, photographer Anthony Hernandez has consistently challenged himself by adopting new formats and subject matter. Moving from black-and-white to colour, from 35mm to large-format cameras and from the human figure to landscapes to abstracted detail, Hernandez has produced a varied body of work united by its arresting formal beauty and subtle engagement with social issues. At first largely unaware of the formal traditions of the medium, Hernandez developed a style of street photography uniquely attuned to the desolate beauty and sprawling expanses of L.A. Published to accompany the photographer's first retrospective, Anthony Hernandez offers a comprehensive introduction to Hernandez's career of more than forty years, including many photographs that have never before been exhibited or published. The catalogue fully represents the range and breadth of Hernandez's work, with an extensive plate section sequenced in collaboration with the photographer. 0Exhibition: San Francisco Museum, USA (24.09.2016-01.01.2017)

The new industrial parks near Irvine, California = Das neue Industriegelände in der Nähe von Irvine, Kalifornien by Lewis Baltz( Book )

24 editions published between 1974 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the late 1960s and early ’70s Lewis Baltz became fascinated by the stark, repellent, manmade landscape that was rolling over California’s then still agrarian terrain. Baltz made a number of projects on this subject, the best known of which, 'The new industrial parks near Irvine, California', was first published in 1974. With this book Baltz took his place near the center of the New Topographic movement, a newly coined term emblematic of a cool, distanced, yet critical view of the emerging man-altered landscape. The Topographic position, detached and glacial, has since influenced photographic practice in the United States, Germany and Japan

Lewis Baltz : kestnergesellschaft, Albertina by Lewis Baltz( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lewis Baltz did not only revive the American landscape photography, but also revolutionized the photographic pictorial language of the 1970s. Pictures of industrial landscapes, dreary suburban neighborhoods and wastelands depict radically new motifs, which for the first time were publically presented in the renown exhibition 'New Topographics' in 1975. This catalogue was made in close collaboration with Lewis Baltz and approaches his work through various angles. The texts highlight how Baltz's photographies relate to the art of the 1970s, how he applies filmic strategies and why he does not call himself a photographer. In doing so, relevant new and underrepresented aspects of this conceptually driven artists are shown.0Exhibition: Kestnergesellschaft, Hannover, Germany (14.9.-4.11.2012).0
