APERTURE FOUNDATION INC, 1997

Resumen del libro

I write with light," Andri Kertisz once said of his work. In one of the medium's longest, most productive careers, Kertisz created a vast, lyrical narrative that helped shape the history of photography. He used the camera to question, record, and preserve his relationships to the world and to his art. Collected here are the finest images of his life's work. "There is in the work of Kertisz a sense of the sweetness of life, a free and childlike pleasure in the beauty of the world and preciousness of sight." ... Leer resumen completo

Fecha Lanzamiento: 06/03/2013
PHAIDON PRESS LIMITED, 2013

Resumen del libro

In 1985, Steve McCurry photographed an Afghan girl for the National Geographic. The intensity of the subject's eyes and her compelling gaze made this one of the most widely and consistently celebrated portraits in the history of contemporary photography. This image accompanies the other remarkable faces he has encountered w hilst travelling throughout the world, collected together in an engaging and moving series of unique street portraits: unposed, unstylized images of people that reveal the true universality of the depths of human emotion. This fresh new edition, expanded to feature more photographs than before, including some never-before published, creates an up-to-date and unrivalled collection of McCurry's portraiture. Critically acclaimed and recognized internationally for his classic reportage, over the last thirty years he has worked on numerous assignments, travelling extensively throughout the Middle and Far East. A regular contributor to many international journals, McCurry is a member of Magnum Photos and a recipient of the Robert Capa Gold Medal and an unprecedented four World Press Photo first prizes in a single year; many of McCurry's images have since become modern icons. He is most famous for his evocative color photography, which has captured stories of human experience that, in the finest documentary tradition, transcend boundaries of language and culture. ...

VIVIAN MAIER: STREET PHOTOGRAPHER
Fecha Lanzamiento: 01/11/2011
VIVIAN MAIER
POWER HOUSE, 2011

Resumen del libro

A good street photographer must be possessed of many talents: an eye for detail, light, and composition; impeccable timing; a populist or humanitarian outlook; and a tireless ability to constantly shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot and never miss a moment. It is hard enough to find these qualities in trained photographers with the benefit of schooling and mentors and a community of fellow artists and aficionados supporting and rewarding their efforts. It is incredibly rare to find it in someone with no formal training and no network of peers. Yet Vivian Maier is all of these things, a professional nanny, who from the 1950s until the 1990s took over 100,000 photographs worldwide—from France to New York City to Chicago and dozens of other countries—and yet showed the results to no one. The photos are amazing both for the breadth of the work and for the high quality of the humorous, moving, beautiful, and raw images of all facets of city life in America’s post-war golden age. ...

Resumen del libro

EDICIÓN TRILING&@220;E: INGLÉS / FRANCÉS / ALEMÁNThis book reveals everything about me. Its been a 60-year contract. Photography is love and death-thatll be my epitaph.The first title in our new TASCHEN limited series is Araki, an enormous and unique book with a print run of only 2,500 copies. The subject is Japanese photog rapher Araki, a man who talks about life through photographs. His powerful oeuvre, decades worth of images, has been pared down to about 1,000 photographs which tell the story of Araki and comprise the ultimate retrospective collection of his work.Known best for his intimate, snapshot-style images of women often tied up with ropes (kinbaku, Japanese rope-tying art) and of colorful, sensual flowers, Araki is an artist who reacts strongly to his emotions and uses photography to experience them more fully. Obsessed with women, Araki seeks to come closer to them through photography, using ropes like an embrace and the click of the shutter like a kiss. His work is at once shocking and mysteriously tender; a deeply personal artist, Araki is not afraid of his emotions nor of showing them to the world. ... Leer resumen completo

SEBASTIAO SALGADO: GENESIS
Fecha Lanzamiento: 23/04/2013
TASCHEN BENEDIKT, 2013

Resumen del libro

Un día como cualquier otro de 1970, Sebastião Salgado tomó por primera vez una cámara entre sus manos. Tenía entonces 26 años. Al mirar a través del visor tuvo una epifanía: de repente, la vida cobró sentido. A partir de aquel día (y pese a que tuvieron que pasar años de duro trabajo hasta que pudo ganarse la vida co mo fotógrafo), la cámara pasó a ser la herramienta a través de la cual interactuar con el mundo. Salgado, que «siempre ha preferido la paleta de claroscuros de las imágenes en blanco y negro», tomó muy pocas fotografías en color antes de renunciar por completo a este medio. El fotógrafo Sebastião Salgado, que creció en una hacienda de Brasil, siente un profundo amor y respeto por la naturaleza; asimismo, es un hombre profundamente comprometido con la devastadora situación socioeconómica en la que, a menudo, se ven afectados los seres humanos. Entre los innumerables trabajos que Salgado ha producido durante su prestigiosa trayectoria, destacan tres proyectos de gran envergadura: Trabajadores (1993), que documenta la evanescente forma de vida de los obreros de todo el mundo, Éxodos (2000), un tributo a la emigración masiva provocada por la hambruna, los desastres naturales, el deterioro medioambiental y la presión demográfica; y esta nueva obra, Génesis, que es el resultado de una épica expedición de ocho años para redescubrir montañas, desiertos, océanos, animales y pueblos que han eludido la impronta de la sociedad moderna: la tierra y la vida de un planeta aún virgen. «Alrededor del 46 % de la Tierra permanece en el estado en el que se hallaba en la época del Génesis —nos recuerda Salgado—. Debemos conservar lo existente.» El proyecto Génesis, junto con el Instituto Terra, fundado por Lélia y Sebastião Salgado, se propone mostrar la belleza de nuestro planeta, revertir el daño que se le ha causado y conservarlo para el futuro. ...

Resumen del libro

El fotografo, coleccionista, diarista y escritor de libros Peter Beard ha convertido su vida en una obra de arte; los diarios ilustrados que escribio desde muy joven evolucionaron hacia una seria trayectoria como artista y le valieron un lugar destacado en el mundo del arte internacional. Fue retratado por Francis Bacon, pi ntado por Salvador Dali, y realizo diarios con Andy Warhol; se fue de gira con Truman Capote y creo libros con Jacqueline Onassis, a los cuales da vida, literalmente y en sentido figurado, en su obra. Como fotografo de moda, se fotografio a estrellas de Vogue como Veruschka a Africa, y se trajo otras, entre las que destaca Iman, a su regreso a EE.UU.Su romance con la historia natural y la vida salvaje, la cual inspira la mayor parte de su obra, comenzo cuando era un adolescente. Habia leido los libros de Isak Dinesen (Karen Blixen) y despues de pasar un tiempo en Kenia y hacerse amigo de la autora, compro una parcela de terreno cerca de la suya. Eran los inicios de la decada de 1960, y los cazadores de caza mayor guiaban los safaris, con todos los elementos coloniales leidos por Beard en Memorias de Africa, que caracterizaban la vida al aire libre y el paisaje. Sin embargo, los tiempos estaban cambiando. Beard fue testigo del comienzo de la explosion demografica de Kenia, la cual puso en jaque los recursos limitados e hizo mella en la fauna. Documento lo que vio con diarios, fotografias y collages. Fue a contracorriente en la publicacion de libros unicos y, en ocasiones, escandalosos sobre esos temas. Los cadaveres yacian desnudos; los hechos se anotaban cuidadosamente, a veces a maquina, a menudo a mano, en ocasiones con sangre.Incluye, junto con cientos de obras a pequeña escala y diarios, los collages mas importantes de Peter Beard, ampliados para mostrar cada detalle con la letra meticulosa de Beard, asi como dibujos inspirados en los grandes maestros de la pintura. ...

Resumen del libro

Nuestro primer titulo de Ed Fox, Glamour From the Ground Up, presento al heredero del peculiar nicho fotografico dominado largamente por el gran Elmer Batters. El californiano Fox ni siquiera habia oido hablar de Batters cuando comenzo a fotografiar mujeres poniendo el enfasis en sus pies. De hecho, pensaba que era el unico joven que se fijaba en los pies de una mujer antes que en la cara, y la mayoria de las veces no podia mirar a los ojos a sus modelos por temor a que descubrieran su secreto. Entonces se convirtio en el fotografo oficial de pies de la revista Leg Show, apenas meses antes de la muerte de Batters, y supo que tenia que ponerse en sus enormes zapatos al mismo tiempo que se dio cuenta de que habia miles de hombres como el, salvo por su talento para capturar su pasion en celuloide, o como hoy, en pixels.En adelante, Ed Fox ha sido conocido internacionalmente por un sensual estilo fotografico que capta cada curva de un cuerpo femenino, hasta la punta de los dedos de los pies. En Ed Fox II, nos ofrece nuevas modelos voluptuosas, lugares fascinantes -muchos combinando los paisajes desiertos del sur de California con la pasion de Fox por los automoviles- y fantasias que van de lo light a lo extra picante, todo fotografiado en una calida y acariciante luz natural. Y como Glamour From the Ground Up, Ed Fox II viene con un DVD original de 60 minutos que insufla a las fotos fijas una vida vibrante. ... Leer resumen completo

Resumen del libro

LE QUELLEC, JEAN-LOICBALDIZZONE, TIZIANASahara. The name itself evokes a horizon of shifting dunes, a rich palette of reds and browns as diverse as the blues of the ocean. The civilizations scattered in this unforgiving landscape seem huddled against the overwhelming power of the elements, yet seen up close the architecture of these desert places is very complex, characterized by pure, abstract lines and arabesques forms that mimic the shapes and lines of the dunes. "Impressions of the Sahara" follows the caravan routes across the desert, stopping to celebrate local traditions such as the extraordinary wall paintings of the women of Mauritania, the colorful markets of the Moroccan oasis towns, and the raw earth mosques of Niger, decorated with elaborate carvings that have survived centuries of exposure to the elements. Illustrated in vibrant color throughout, "Impressions of the Sahara" is an extraordinary photographic record of the sumptuous colors of the desert and the homes of those who live there. ...

Among the stunningly varied landscapes are the mournfully beautiful Cornish coast, which was farmed, fished, and mined by men and women of the Bronze Age; Wicken, which was i solated by 17th-century speculators who drained the East Anglian fens; and the Giant's Causeway on the Antrim coast of Northern Ireland, an astonishing formation created by thousands of years of volcanic activity. Featuring some of the National Trust's most remarkable properties, this is a rich visual meditation on the evolving British landscape. ... Leer resumen completo
