Photography and the Old West by Karen Current( Book )

10 editions published between 1978 and 1986 in English and held by 1,084 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work is an explanation of the role of the nineteenth-century photographer as a conscious historian of the West - a recorder of events, people, and places as surely as they were the diary-keepers, journalists, and writers. Like them, he exercised choice in what he recorded; unlike them, he documented aspects of reality that we can know in no other way. Photographers as documenters are too often casually, even carelessly, regarded. Photography And The Old West is intended to convey as clearly as possible how people learned to use a camera and became camera-wise in an individual way; how tools and materials affected photographic seeing; and what a few of the many photographers hoped to express. This work is not a comprehensive survey but rather a selective look at some of the imagery of the West that a few conscious photographers produced

Anasazi places : the photographic vision of William Current by Jeffrey Cook( Book )

4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 462 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1881, Brazilian Aluisio Azevedo published Mulatto, a scathing expose of his native city, Sao Luis do Maranhao. Polemic as well as love story, it brought him much notoriety and is generally considered the first Brazilian naturalist novel."--BOOK JACKET. "Set before the abolition of slavery and the establishment of the first republic, Mulatto tells the story of Raimundo, a young Brazilian of liberal ideas. Kept in ignorance of the identity of his mother and the secret of his mixed birth, Raimundo is educated in Europe and, upon returning to Brazil, struggles against the provincial and bigoted society he encounters. Mulatto reveals its author's opposition to both the clergy, whose corruption and influence he denounced, and the racist agrarian society still dependent upon slavery. This English translation of Mulatto was first published in 1990 by Fairleigh Dickinson University Press."--BOOK JACKET
Greene & Greene; architects in the residential style by William R Current( Book )

11 editions published between 1974 and 1977 in English and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As builders "employing the process art," the Greenes reached for perfection, and their work symbolizes the culmination of the 19th century idealism that had spawned the residential style. The distinguished photographer, William R. Current, has sensitively studied the remnants of what once were the finest homes in America. He has selected the elements that characterize the Greenes' work and has remained true to their original intent, while interpreting through his medium the essence of the Greenes' architectural statements. In his superb photographs, he has been able to isolate and interpret the Greenes' art; his images become works of art in their own right
