Most widely held works by John Szarkowski
Looking at photographs ; 100 pictures from the collection of the Museum of Modern Art by N.Y.) Museum of Modern Art (New York( Book )
49 editions published between 1973 and 2009 in English and German and held by 1,908 libraries worldwide
"Since 1930, when the Museum [of Modern Art] accessioned its first photograph, a vast and unique archive of pictures has been assembled for study, preservation, and exhibition. Among the masters represented here are Hill and Adamson, Cameron, O'Sullivan, Stieglitz, Steichen, Strand, Weston, Walker Evans, Cartier-Bresson, Lange, Brassaï, Ansel Adams, Minor White, and Robert Frank. Some of these photographs are classics, familiar and well-loved favorites; but many are surprising, little-known works by the masters of the art, and a number are hitherto unpublished works by unknown photographers of the past. ... originally published in 1973, this reissue, with new duotone separations using the latest technology, brings this remarkable book back to a new generation."--Back cover

The photographer's eye by John Szarkowski( Book )
36 editions published between 1966 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,512 libraries worldwide
This book is an investigation of what photographs look like, and of why they look that way. It is concerned with photographic style and with photographic tradition: with the sense of possibilities that a photographer today takes to his work. The invention of photography provided a radically new picture-making process- a process based not on synthesis but on selection. The difference was a basic one. Paintings were 'made' - constructed from a storehouse of traditional schemes, skills, and attitudes- but photographs, were 'taken'. The difference raised a creative issue of a new order: how could this mechanical and mindless process be made to produce pictures meaningful in human terms- pictures with clarity and coherence and a point of view? It was soon demonstrated that an answer would not be found by those who loved too much the old forms, for in large part the photographer was bereft of the old artistic traditions. The pictures reproduced in this book were made over almost a century and a quarter. They were made for various reasons, by men of different concerns and varying talent. They have in fact little in common except their success, and a shared vocabulary: these pictures are unmistakably photographs. The vision they share belongs to no school or aesthetic theory, but to photography itself. The character of this vision was discovered by photographers at work, as their awareness of photography's potentials grew. -- from Introduction

Irving Penn by John Szarkowski( Book )
16 editions published between 1984 and 1987 in 3 languages and held by 839 libraries worldwide
One of the most distinguished practitioners of portrait and fashion photography of the mid-twentieth century, Irving Penn's work is identified by its refinement of craft, by the wit and grace of its formal invention, and by its sensitivity to the quality and character of light. Backed by Vogue magazine, Penn brought a classic economy and concentration to the overblown world of fashion photography, to portraits of artists, writers, and theater people, and to ethnographic studies of style and ornament in little-known corners of West Africa, Nepal, Peru, and New Guinea. This book, published in conjunction with an exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, is the first comprehensive retrospective of Penn's work. The essay by John Szarkowski follows a brilliant career, from its art-school beginnings to the provocative still lifes, photographs of cigarette butts and street detritus--works of eloquence and classical rectitude, made from the least consequential of subject matter.--From publisher description

Alfred Stieglitz at Lake George by Alfred Stieglitz( Book )
19 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in 3 languages and held by 546 libraries worldwide
In the early years of this century, Alfred Stieglitz was celebrated as a writer, a publisher, a photographer, an art dealer, a proselytizer for photography and modern art, and a visionary. Then, after giving much of his formidable energy to his public career, Stieglitz turned again to his own photography, exploring throughout the twenties and thirties his personal world at Lake George in the Adirondacks, where he spent summers at a farmhouse that had been part of his father's estate. He photographed the place and the things around him - the farm, the landscape, the sky, and details of the intimate life he led with family and friends, especially his young wife, the painter Georgia O'Keeffe. This body of work, both radical and private, constitutes the essence of Stieglitz's achievement as a photographer, and has never before been presented as a coherent whole. Stieglitz has always been famous, but his late work is little known. In this book, a selection of sixty-four of the best of the Lake George photographs is splendidly reproduced: over half of these works have never been published anywhere. They represent prints originally given to public collections by Georgia O'Keeffe, and will be shown in September 1995 in an exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, which this volume accompanies
