Beyond caring by Paul Graham( Book )

11 editions published between 1986 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paul Graham's Beyond Caring published in 1986 is now considered one of the key works from Britain's wave of "New Color" photography that was gaining momentum in the 1980s. While commissioned to present his view of "Britain in 1984," Graham turned his attention towards the waiting rooms, queues and poor conditions of overburdened Social Security and Unemployment offices across the United Kingdom. Photographing surreptitiously, his camera is both witness and protagonist within a bureaucratic system that speaks to the humiliation and indignity aimed towards the most vulnerable end of society. Books on Books #9 presents every page spread of Graham's controversial book along with a contemporary essay by writer and curator David Chandler.--Publisher
Stephen Shore : selected works 1973-1981 by Stephen Shore( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"... an international group of artists, curators, authors, and cultural figures have selected up to ten photographs apiece from Stephen Shore's Uncoming Places archive. None of the images appear in the current edition of his landmark book of the same name; most are published here for the first time. Each suite of photographs, chosen from over four hundred newly scanned or rediscovered negatives, offers an idiosyncratic commentary on Shore's distinctive vision of America and proposes new perspectives on this seminal body of work from the 1970s and early '80s"--Page 5

Paul Graham : photographs 1981-2006 by Paul Graham( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and German and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A pioneer in the reinvention of contemporary photography as art photography, Paul Graham was one of the first photographers to bring the possibilities of color to the genre of social documentary as we now understand it. His work in the early 1980s prompted photographers like Martin Parr to switch to color, and a new style of photography soon evolved in the works of Richard Billingham, Tom Wood, Simon Norfolk, Jem Southam and many others. Since then, Graham has continued to push the envelope, demonstrating a commitment to expanding photography's artistic space, and to the unity of documentary and artistic considerations in an unblinking engagement with life as it unfolds. Today, he ranks alongside figures like Nan Goldin, Andreas Gursky, Philip-Lorca diCorcia and Rineke Djikstra as a precursor and an eminence. Graham's most recent volume, A Shimmer of Possibility (published in 2007 and already a collector's item - and available below in a new paperback edition), was hailed by critics as a paradigm shifter at a time when art photography is increasingly staged or seems to hold the world at arm's length. This volume, which coincides with a touring European retrospective, appraises 25 years of Graham's work, from 1981 to 2006, tracking his steady expansion of our notions of what photography can say, be or look like."--Jacket
