Picturing Indians : photographic encounters and tourist fantasies in H.H. Bennett's Wisconsin Dells by Steven D Hoelscher( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Today a tourist Mecca, the area now known as the Wisconsin Dells was once wilderness - and a gathering place for the region's Native peoples, the Ho-Chunk, who for centuries migrated to this part of the Wisconsin River for both sustenance and spiritual renewal. By the late 1800s their numbers had dwindled considerably through displacement or forcible removal, and it was this smaller band that caught the attention of photographer Henry Hamilton Bennett. Having built his reputation on his photographs of the Dells' steep-sided gorges and fantastic rock formations, H.H. Bennett now turned his camera upon the Ho-Chunk themselves, and thus began the many-layered relationship unfolded by Steven D. Hoelscher in Picturing Indians: Photographic Encounters and Tourist Fantasies in H.H. Bennett's Wisconsin Dells."--Jacket
Reading Magnum : a visual archive of the modern world by Steven D Hoelscher( Book )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Magnum Photos archive-a collection of more than 200,000 photographs by some of the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries' greatest image makers-is the most comprehensive accumulation of prints made by the distinguished photo cooperative. Consistently and with striking artistry, Magnum's photographers have done more than simply document the far reaches of the globe; they have helped shape generations' understanding of the world around them. While many of its photographs have been widely published, until now no one has examined the Magnum archive itself. In Reading Magnum, experts from several fields investigate this visual archive, now residing at the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas at Austin, to discover how a select, influential group of visual authors has used the camera for an ambitious project of cultural interpretation and social commentary.0Exhibition: Ransom Center Galleries, Austin, USA (10.09.2013-05.01.2014)

Elliott Erwitt : home around the world by Jessica S McDonald( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elliott Erwitt: Home Around the World offers a timely and critical reconsideration of Erwitt's unparalleled life as a photographer. Produced alongside a major retrospective exhibition, the book features examples of Erwitt's early experiments in California, his intimate family portraits in New York, his major magazine assignments and long-term documentary interests, and his ongoing personal investigations of public spaces and their transitory inhabitants. Essays by photography experts based on extensive new interviews with the photographer consider less-studied aspects of Erwitt's work: his engagement with social and political issues through photojournalism, the humanist qualities of his very early photographs, and his work as a filmmaker. Home Around the World traces the development and refinement of Erwitt's unique visual approach over time. With over two hundred photographs, and ephemera including magazine reproductions, advertisements, and contact sheets, this volume is the first to offer a comprehensive historical treatment of Erwitt's body of work and position in the field

So That All Shall Know/Para que todos lo sepan : Photographs by Daniel Hernández-Salazar [Fotografías por Daniel Hernández-Salazar]( )

2 editions published in 2021 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How does an artist respond to the horrors of war and the genocide of his or her people? Can art play a role in the fight for justice? These are key questions for understanding the work of Guatemalan photographer Daniel Hernández-Salazar. Since the 1980s, Hernández-Salazar has created both documentary and aesthetic works that confront the state-sponsored terrorism and mass killings of Guatemala's long civil war (1962-1996). His photographic polyptych (4-panel image) "Clarification" became the icon for the Recovery of Historical Memory project of the Archbishopric of Guatemala, as well as a rallying symbol for Guatemalans. Broadening his crusade for justice in the twenty-first century, Hernández-Salazar is now also using the shouting angel of his polyptych (entitled "So That All Shall Know") to challenge the forgetting and/or erasure of painful history in many parts of the world, including Mexico, Japan, the United States, Canada, and Argentina. So That All Shall Know is a powerful, comprehensive overview of the work of Daniel Hernández-Salazar on recent Guatemalan history. Portfolios of images present his early photojournalistic work documenting the Guatemalan genocide; his Eros + Thanatos series that responds aesthetically to the destruction of war; and his Street Angel project, which uses his image "So That All Shall Know" to protest against injustice and historical forgetting around the world. Accompanying the images are bilingual English-Spanish essays by four scholars who discuss the development of Hernández-Salazar's art in the context of contemporary photography, the social and political conditions that inspire his work, and the broader questions that arise when artists engage in social struggle. Introduced by Nobel Peace Laureate Rigoberta Menchú Tum, So That All Shall Know is a moving testament to the horrors of genocide and the power of art to give voice to the silenced and presence to the disappeared
Southern heritage on display : public ritual and ethnic diversity within southern regionalism by R. Celeste Ray( Book )

3 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This provocative collection draws on extensive ethnographic fieldwork to shed light on the role that public ceremonies play in affirming or debunking cultural identities associated with the South. W.J. Cash's 1941 observation that ""there are many Souths and many cultural traditions among them"" is certainly validated by this book. Although the Civil War and its ""lost cause"" tradition continues to serve as a cultural root paradigm in celebrations, both uniting and dividing loyalties, southerners also embrace a panoply of public rituals--parades, cook-offs, kinship homecom-ings, church assem

Landscapes of mining and agriculture in western Kentucky by Lisa J Powell( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Though mining and agriculture have always shared a function in producing energy, for machines and for human and animal consumption, respectively, landscapes containing and created by the two practices have been worlds apart in the popular imagination. As a place where large-scale commercial agriculture and underground coal mining exist side-by-side and one-on-top-of-the-other, Union County in Western Kentucky can be confusing for those who have experienced both only through the filters of mass news media, films, books, and music. Yet, it is a place where food production and fuel production have coexisted for centuries and where there is no indication that either will cease in the near future. This dissertation introduces the concept of the hybrid energy landscape, a physical and cultural space in which food is produced as an energy source in addition to mechanical fuels. In such a landscape, of which Union County is a primary example, competiton for land use can result in both conflicts and negotiations, which this dissertation explores. As many of current proposals for alternative strategies to meet resource needs involve producing food and fuel in shared spaces, Union County provides a valuable case study of such a hybrid energy landscape that has been functioning and developing for 200 years
Taco truck urban topographies and the spatiality of orderly disorder by Robert Lemon( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This dissertation examines Mexican immigrant socio-spatial practices around taco trucks in four cities across the United States: Oakland, California; Sacramento, California; Columbus, Ohio; and Austin, Texas. The dissertation is an empirically grounded analysis of the trucks' social performances. Taco truck space is a representational practice that takes on a myriad of meanings to divergent community groups. Taco truck owners traverse the city to find spaces where they are most appreciated and least harassed. As they navigate these often invisible and uneven topographies, their methodical movements produce atypical rhythms in municipalities across the nation. These idiosyncratic patterns denote various American ideologies toward taco trucks in particular, and Mexican immigrants in general. Moreover, because the trucks are mobile and cannot be completely eradicated, the taco trucks become symbolic spaces of empowerment. They come to represent Mexican cultural perseverance, as well as resistance to the existing community hegemony that may try to erase them from the landscape. The dissertation elucidates the obscure social processes that sculpt a city's cultural contours across the United States. For instance, taco truck space in some cities is often manipulated by discriminatory planning initiatives that dictate where Mexican food practices can take place; while in other more affluent neighborhoods, new artisanal food trucks plagiarize proletariat Mexican street food practices, which are primarily celebrated by non-Latino middle-class patrons. It is not uncommon for many of a city's restaurateurs to perceive taco truck space as blight. This notion rings especially true in cases where a city adopts the new urban mantra, "Farm-to-Fork," where the urban environment continues to be upgraded by the hands of developers. These improvements lead to the proliferation of urban landscapes with sidewalk cafes and new restaurants that ultimately push Mexican food practices to the city's periphery. In contrast, some city planners capitalize on Mexican cuisine culture and promote taco truck space as a way to market a city's open-mindedness and ethnic diversity to attract the creative class to further economic development. The dissertation argues that eating at taco trucks is more than just a simple act that reinforces identity to the Mexican immigrant--it is also a spatial representational practice that performs one's right to inhabit public space and the city at large
