The way home : ending homelessness in America ( Book )
3 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 421 libraries worldwide
"This book documents the plight of homeless men, women, and children in cities and towns across America - and points the way to lasting solutions." "The safety net that once protected the vulernable and aided the ill has suffered from many pressures, but has not disappeared. Programs exist, and people of energy and commitment are working to construct new ways of confronting and overcoming this persistent crisis." "To end homelessness in America, we must begin to see "the homeless" as individual human beings, rather than a faceless, nameless crowd." "With this necessity to see in mind, Philip Brookman, Curator of Photography and Media Arts at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., and Jane Slate Siena of the Getty Conservation Institute have invited 13 eminent photographers - some artists, some photojournalists - to meet homeless citizens in their makeshift dwelling places, and in various forms of interim and permanent housing." "Nan Roman's essay provides context for these images, describing the present state of the crisis and offering concrete, practical solutions, while Tipper Gore's foreword offers a personal perspective. The photographers' captions describe their impressions of the situations they recorded and poems, some by members of the Writers' Forum at the Miriam's Kitchen Breakfast Program in Washington, D.C., infuse the book with the voices of homeless men and women."--Jacket

Helios : Eadweard Muybridge in a time of change by Philip Brookman( Book )
8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 332 libraries worldwide
Born in England in 1830, Eadweard Muybridge immigrated to the United States in the early 1850s and began his career as a photographer in San Francisco in 1867. He radically reinvented the aesthetic and technical capabilities of the camera and in doing so gave us a new way to conceive of motion, time, and space. Today, the impact of Muybridge's art can be found in many places, from Thomas Edison's kinetoscope viewer and Marcel Duchamp's Nude Descending a Staircase to the poignant paintings of Francis Bacon, the blockbuster film The Matrix, and U2's video for their hit song "Lemon." It is interesting now to imagine Muybridge's world, little more than a century ago, when our sense of time was turned upside down for good. Helios: Eadweard Muybridge in a Time of Change constructs a new understanding of Muybridge's innovations and demonstrates his influence as a pioneer of modern art. --Book Jacket
Essential modernism by Philip Brookman( Book )
4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 225 libraries worldwide
""Never before have the conditions of life changed so swiftly and enormously as they have changed for mankind in the last fifty years. We have been carried along ... [and] we are only now beginning to realize the force and strength of the storm of change that has come upon us."" "When British visionary author H.G. Wells wrote this passage in 1933 he knew he was living in a time of absolute transformation. Essential Modernism chronicles how artists, responding to the violence of World War I and the unprecedented modernization of the world, tried to change society." "Written as a guide to the Corcoran Gallery of Art's presentation of the groundbreaking exhibition Modernism: Designing a New World 1914-1939, Essential Modernism brings into focus the foundation and meaning of Modernism - the defining movement of twentieth-century art, design, and culture. It clarifies many of the ideas and principles underpinning the aesthetic and visual appearance of much art, architecture, graphic and product design, film, and theater design created in the first half of the twentieth century." "Illustrated with almost 100 images from the exhibition, Essential Modernism tells the story of how artists reacted to the unprecedented violence and destruction they had witnessed during World War I; and their experimental search for ways to create a better world through art."--Jacket

Soth depicts newlyweds and naked lovers, motel parking lots and pawn shop wedding rings. Throughout the book, Soth also includes a number of love letters from the subjects he photographed.
