White : whiteness and race in contemporary art by Maurice Berger( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the past 20 years, the cultural and scholarly discourse around race has exploded to include the study of whiteness and white privilege, representing a radical shift in the way we think and talk about race in the United States. Since the advent of the modern civil rights movement, people of color have usually been responsible for leading the debate and discussion about race and racism, forced to evaluate the status of their race in relation to the prejudice they experience every day--while most white people, even the most liberal, are usually oblivious to the psychological and political weight of their own color. The study of whiteness asks all Americans--and especially white people--to take stock of the political, psychological, economic and cultural implication of white skin, white entitlement and white privilege."--Publisher's description

Magic eyes : scenes from an Andean girlhood by Wendy Ewald( Book )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Magic eyes is a collaboration that grew out of Wendy Ewald's experiences in the village of Raquira in the Colombian Andes between 1982 and 1984. The book combines photographs taken by Ewald and her students with stories told by two local women, Maria Vasquez and her daughter, Alicia. Together, Ewald's students and the Vasquezes present the images and experiences of what Barbara Majuica has called "the rich Andean folk culture, in which magic and nature are inseparable components of equal value." The magic eyes belong to Alicia, who recounts her story of the evil eye, which she associates with the camera lens. Alicia and her mother powerfully convey the difficult life in the squatter settlements outside of Bogata. Great poverty and violence are seen through eyes taught from early in life to notice the magical; the results are deeply poetical
I dreamed I had a girl in my pocket : the story of an Indian village by Wendy Ewald( Book )

9 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the 2,000-year-old village of Vichya, in the state of Gujarat in northwestern India, Wendy Ewald photographed and taught twenty of the village's children. I Dreamed I Had a Girl in my Pocket is a record of her journey, a unique book in which words and images move on simultaneous planes. Ewald worked with the children to portray their families, friends, daily lives, and the sometimes secret stories of love, struggle, death, and bride-burning whispered by adults. The children's images are joined with Ewald's in an evocative narrative. Whether they attend school or work the fields, whether they are untouchables or of another caste, these rural children speak in eloquent voices and offer intimate glimpses of their lives. This small epic of an Indian village includes artifacts, and artworks, along with stories told by the children and other villagers, collected by Ewald. These stories, along with Ewald's portraits of the children, bear witness to a culture's first encounter with a camera

Towards a promised land by Wendy Ewald( Book )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For more than thirty years, Wendy Ewald has put cameras in the hands of children, working alongside them to help record their dreams and realities in images and words. This life project has led Ewald all over the world -- Colombia, India, South Africa, Holland, as well as numerous locations in the U.S -- to work with children of diverse cultural backgrounds and situations.Towards a Promised Land is a commission by the London-based international arts organisation Artangel as the prologue to a promenade performance and film project by Penny Woolcock entitled The Margate Exodus. Ewald has worked with twenty-two children who migrated to the British seaside town of Margate from near and far. Some of these children have fled countries afflicted by war, poverty or political strife; others have been affected by the simple facts of domestic upheaval from one town to another. With Ewald, they have learned to explore their imaginations and express their different experiences of displacement and relocation in the search for a better life. Over the past eighteen months Ewald has photographed the children and interviewed them about their past and present lives, as well as teaching them how to take their own photographs. The resulting case studies capture the children at critical turning points in their lives. Ewald's photographic portraits of the children have appeared as huge iconic banners in various locations around Margate, including along the historic Sea Wall; the children's own projects and photographs formed an exhibition at a local Margate gallery. Towards a Promised Land, supported by Small Voice Foundation, touches some of the most salient issues confronting contemporary society today in the form of the displaced human being and his/her effect on the concept of nationhood. These issues are further explored in an innovatively conceived publication. Edited by Louise Neri, this "book of fragments" brings together Ewald's case studies, the children's own materials, and a host of interviews, writings and commentaries by prominent writers and artists on the contemporary search for a sense of place in a world of constant and turbulent change

This is where I live by Wendy Ewald( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For forty years, Wendy Ewald has travelled the world working with local communities, especially children. In addition to making her own photographs, she developed a method of handing out simple cameras and encouraging people -- ordinarily the "subjects" of a professional photographer -- to author their own images of themselves and their communities. Because the photographers are trusted observers, innocent of the techniques (and wiles) of professionals, the results have the uncanny feel of unadorned truth. In 'This is where i live', Ewald redefines the scope of books about Israel and the West Bank. Ewald portrays an entire region through its discreet parts. Her subjects are contested sites where many communities coexist: Jewish, Christian, Gypsy and Druze. Ewald worked with fourteen different communities -- in neighbourhoods, villages and schools -- using a version of the prismatic approach she's refined over many years. She encouraged a wide range of people -- school children, elderly women and hi-tech workers -- to take pictures and document their lives from their own perspective. Cameras were offered to children uprooted by settlements in Hebron, the West Bank; to young girls at Tzahali military academy; to stall owners at The Shuk, Jerusalem's lively marketplace; and to Bedouin students at a school in the Negev Desert. The collected images, accompanied by interviews and statements by the photographers, evoke the vitality of the region's cultural landscape, including small minorities such as the Gypsies (who are often swept under the umbrella of Arab identity) -- not to mention the myriad identities within majority groups, illuminating the manifold meaning of "Jewish identity."
