The printed picture by Richard Benson( Book )
11 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 787 libraries worldwide
"The Painted Picture traces the changing technology of picture-making from the Renaissance to the present, focusing on the vital role of images in multiple copies. From woodblocks to modern color photographs, from engravings to bar codes, from daguerreotypes to today's digital wonders, the book succinctly examines the full range of pictorial processes. Exploring how pictures look by describing how they are made, author Richard Benson reaches fresh conclusions about what pictures can mean. Presented as a series of one-page essays opposite the pictures they examine, the book retains the engaging, informal style of Benson's celebrated seminars at Yale University."--BOOK JACKET

Friedlander by Lee Friedlander( Book )
10 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 590 libraries worldwide
"The hipster wit and graphic verve of Lee Friedlander's irreverent glimpses of the city street and tongue-in-cheek self-portraits of the 1960s delivered a bracing jolt to American photography. Since the early 1970s his mastery of craft, playful affection for tradition, and voracious curiosity have transformed that early style into a fluid stream of observation, ever more capacious, nimble, and sensuous. Working in extended series that he often makes into books - some two dozen so far - Friedlander has become one of the most prolific artists in photography's history. The considerable range of his work over the past five decades - including portraits, nudes, still lifes, and studies of people at work - is anchored in a uniquely vivid and far-reaching vision of the American scene." "Friedlander, published to accompany a major retrospective exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, generously surveys the entire range of the photographer's work to date in 764 plates presented as a unfolding series of family groups. Some groups are devoted to major projects - including Self Portrait (1970), The American Monument (1976), Portraits (1985), Nudes (1991), and Sticks & Stones: Architectural America (2004) - while others, rigorously organized by date, theme, and style, further enable readers to chart the evolution of an extraordinary rich career. The book's large pages accommodate telling juxtapositions as well as ample reproductions of Friedlander's square-format photographs of the past decade, when a change of cameras made all of his old problems new again and opened fresh paths of discovery. The plates conclude with a suite of landscapes made in the American West, published for the first time. At once magisterial and bizarre, these pictures attest to the undiminished vitality of Friedlander's eye." "In the book's main essay, Peter Galassi, the Museum's Chief Curator of Photography, offers the first in-depth account of Friedlander's career. Richard Benson, Dean of the Yale University School of Art, contributes a second essay telling the story of his own role in making Friedlander's books. The first detailed catalogue of Friedlander's books, special editions, and portfolios, along with a chronology and bibliography, conclude the volume."--BOOK JACKET
A maritime album : 100 photographs and their stories by Va.) Mariners' Museum (Newport News( Book )
4 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 507 libraries worldwide
This book depicts the relationships of mariners with their vessels and the sea. Each photograph chronicles a fragment of the mariner's experience over the past 200 years - shipbuilding, the making of a wooden skiff, commercial fishing and whaling, amateur sailing, deep-sea diving, naval encounters, and much more. In his introduction, John Szarkowski shares his artistic rationale for selecting the particular images that appear in this book. Benson's essays, which accompany the photographs, unify image and story in a vignette of time and place, of historical, societal, and individual meaning. This book is the catalogue for a traveling exhibition that will open in December 1997 at The Mariners' Museum in Newport News, Virginia

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 85 libraries worldwide
"This photograph album of Yale's third century contains a rich and surprising assortment of pictures selected by the photographer Richard Benson. Punctuated with essays by past and present notables of the Yale community and by Benson's own commentary, the album moves from Old Yale at the turn of the century to challenges facing the university in the new millennium. The people, events, objects, and settings encountered along the way have contributed to the making of the Yale experience in the twentieth century."--Jacket
