Curators at the world-renowned Musée de l'Elysée in Lausanne selected the photographers from hundreds of candidates submitted by more than sixty of the world's top photography schools. The panel's choice was made with one key quesiton in mind: are these images likely to be known in twenty years' time?"--Cover

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 425 libraries worldwide
Reflex : a Vik Muniz primer by Vik Muniz( Book )
5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 408 libraries worldwide
"Vik Muniz has come to stand out as one of the most articulate and innovative artists of his generation, equally at home working with images of chocolate sauce, spaghetti marinara, or the detritus of hole punchers. In doing so, he has carved out a unique niche within contemporary photography: one of trickster and philosopher as well as creator of compelling and delightful images. Reflex: A Vik Muniz Primer is a privileged, guided tour of the contents of Muniz's pyrotechnic imagination, and reveals the artist not only as a thoughtful visual practitioner but as a witty and compelling writer as well."--Jacket
Specimens and marvels : William Henry Fox Talbot and the invention of photography by William Henry Fox Talbot( Book )
3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 361 libraries worldwide
"This publication focuses on Talbot's ambitions for the mystical blend of science and art he termed "photogenic drawing" (later called" photography"), as outlined in his classic volume The Pencil of Nature. In addition to familiar icons from photography's beginnings, such as Talbot's cameraless photograms of plant forms and lace, and his photographs of Lacock Abbey, the twelfth-century stone building in which he lived and worked, many unseen and little-known experiments with calotypes will be featured in this invaluable new volume on the life and work of Talbot. Lively and insightful texts offer new critical perspectives on Talbot's significance in the history of image-making, the illustrated book, and the history of ideas."--Jacket
Exploding into life by Dorothea Lynch( Book )
1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 321 libraries worldwide
"In 1978, thirty-four-year-old Dorothea Lynch discovered she had breast cancer. In an attempt to gain control of the disease and communicate her experience to others, she asked her longtime companion, Eugene Richards, to visually document her struggle while she kept a written diary. Exploding Into Life is the synthesis of their two experiences. What begins as their need to know the facts about cancer becomes, as the years pass, a highly personal inquiry into what it means to be alive, to face the uncertain future, and to accept death. The book that results is a testament to a woman's strength, intelligence, and sensitivity as she confronts cancer, a medical care system, and cultural attitudes towards illness and mortality"--Eugene Richards' website, viewed on December 1, 2014

Peter Hujar : speed of life by Peter Hujar( Book )
2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 197 libraries worldwide
Peter Hujar was a leading figure of the downtown New York scene of the 1970s and ?80s. He is most well-known for his portraits of New York City's artists, musicians, writers, and performers, which feature characters such as Susan Sontag, William S. Burroughs, David Wojnarowicz, and Andy Warhol, and was admired for his completely uncompromising attitude toward work and life. Hujar was a consummate technician, and his portraits of people, animals, and landscapes, with their exquisite black-and-white tonalities, were extremely influential. Underappreciated during his lifetime, Hujar is now a revered icon of the lost downtown art scene, and his photographs are held in permanent collections around the world. Over 160 photographs are gathered in Peter Hujar: 'Speed of Life'. Published alongside a major touring exhibition, this collection presents Hujar's famous portraiture as well as his lesser-known projects.

The non-conformists : Martin Parr by Martin Parr( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and French and held by 180 libraries worldwide
The Non-Conformists' features Martin Parr's first major body of work from the mid-1970s, published here for the first time in book form. A wonderful and charming surprise for Parr enthusiasts and fans of traditional reportage, this body of black-and-white imagery predates the cutting colour work that earned him his fame in the 1980s. In 1975, fresh out of art school, Martin Parr found poor footing in the London photography scene, so he moved to the picturesque Yorkshire Pennine mill town of Hebden Bridge. Over a period of five years, he documented the town in photographs, showing in particular the aspects of traditional life that were beginning to decline. Susie Parr, whom he had met in Manchester, joined him in documenting a year in the life of a small Methodist chapel, together with its farming community. In words and pictures, the Parrs vividly and affectionately document cobbled streets, flat-capped mill workers, hardy gamekeepers, henpecked husbands, and jovial shop owners
