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. ...

400 PHOTOGRAPHS
Fecha Lanzamiento: 03/12/2007
TIME WARNER, UK, 2007

Resumen del libro

Beautifully reproduced and cleanly presented, the four hundred images in this volume represent the finest work of a pre-eminent landscape photographer. The photographs are arranged chronologically into five major periods in order to convey Adams's maturation as an artist - from his first photographs in 1916 to his last grea t photograph in 1968. ANSEL ADAMS' 400 PHOTOGRAPHS is intended as a must-have gift and reference book for anyone who appreciates photography and the allure of the natural world. Few artists or photographers of any era can claim to have produced four hundred images of lasting beauty and significance. It is a testament to Ansel's vision and his prodigious output that a book of this scale can be justified, and it is a point of pride for Little, Brown to publish a comprehensive overview of the work of Ansel Adams in a single well-packaged volume. ...

END TIMES (INGLES)
JILL GREENBERG y PAUL WOMBELL
T.F. EDITORES, 2012

Resumen del libro

"End Times es una serie de retratos infantiles realizados en 2006 por la reconocida fotografa americana Jill Greenberg que reproduce primeros planos (con el torso desnudo y sin maquillaje contra un fondo azul celeste) de niños llorando y expresando diferentes emociones de manera dramatica. En total son 32 fotografias que re presentan imagenes de rabia, desconsuelo, desesperacion, tristeza y desamparo. Los estilizados e hiperreales primerosplanos que componen End Times fueron motivo de gran controversia en 2006. La tecnica para hacerles llorar consistia en ofrecerles caramelos, para arrebatarselos posteriormente. Para la autora estas imagenes representan una metafora sobre el duelo en el que el mundo se halla sumido por la politica de la Administracion de Bush y el poder de los sectores religiosos de derechas en Estados Unidos. Para reforzar su mensaje, cada imagen lleva su titulo:Tortura, Oracion, El Gran y Viejo Partido Politico o Apocalypse Now. La publicacion se acompaña con extractos de periodicos intercalados y ensayos de Paul Wombell y Bill Moyers. End Times se publica por primera en vez con motivo de la exposicion que tendra lugar en GetxoPhoto 2012 el 31 de agosto en Getxo (Vizcaya). Jill Greenberg ha realizado trabajos para Philip Morris, Microsoft, Compaq, Polaroid, Dreamworks, Sony Pictures, Paramount Pictures, MGM, Disney, Fox, Coca Cola, Pepsi, Smirnoff, MTV, Warner Bros., Sony Music, y Atlantic Records.Sus fotografias han aparecido, entre otras revistas, en las portadas de Time Magazine, TV Guide, Newsweek, Wired, EntertainmentWeekly" ...

LIGHTHOUSES OF FRANCE: THE MONUMENTS AND THEIR KEEPERS
Fecha Lanzamiento: 21/01/2013
FLAMMARION, 2009

Resumen del libro

Lighthouses are an icon of a simpler, more romantic era, which partly explains why they are so wellloved today. Unlike many other countries, France has resisted the trend toward total automation, and in many small ports and seaside towns, the lighthouse keeper is still a wellknown and respected figure. World renowned lighth ouse photographer Jean Guichard's famously dramatic photographs of storms at sea illustrate only too well the perilous working conditions the lighthouse keepers face, and the text by Rene Gast provides a fascinating glimpse into the daily lives of these men and women, whose determination and nerves of steel have saved countless lives over the centuries. Even the workmen who built these technological marvels risked their lives with every wave, and had to be strapped bellydown on the rock to avoid being washed away. Today, the job still requires a great deal of nerve, shown in the many photographs of the lighthouses where keepers are still winched down to the deck of the relief boat by hand, dangling from ropes over crashing seas. The book also contains reproductions of a number of historical documents about lighthouses: vintage photographs and etchings, extracts from logbooks, and architectural drawings detailing the development in lighthouse and navigational engineering. Lighthouses of France is a wonderfully romantic photographic tribute to lighthouses and to the bravery and dedication of their keepers. ... Leer resumen completo

THE BIG BOOK OF LEGS (ED. TRILINGUE INGLES-ALEMAN-FRANCES)
Fecha Lanzamiento: 19/05/2009
TASCHEN BENEDIKT, 2009

Resumen del libro

Las piernas femeninas son una rareza erótica: no genitales y de estructura casi idéntica a las extremidades masculinas, no hay razones obvias por las que deberían ser erotizadas. Pero a lo largo de buena parte de la historia y en muchas culturas, las piernas femeninas han sido cubiertas y tratadas como un tabú, hasta conver tirse en un objeto de obsesión sexual. En la era victoriana, la palabra "pierna" estaba prohibida entre la gente de bien, no fuera que los caballeros se desmelenaran de deseo. Incluso hoy, 80 años después de que las piernas de las mujeres salieran finalmente de su escondite, su atractivo se mantiene misterioso y poderoso. El tercer libro en la superexitosa serie de Dian Hanson sobre las partes eróticas del cuerpo explora cómo las piernas de la mujer se convirtieron en un tema central en la liberación femenina, desde la Revolución francesa a la revolución sexual. Más de 400 fotos documentan los primeros espectáculos de cabaret en el siglo XIX, el furor de las faldas cortas y las medias de seda en los años 1920, la nylonmanía de los 1940, el amanecer de los tacones de aguja en los 1950 y la edad dorada de las revistas de piernas en los 1960. ¿Quién usó los primeros tacones altos, cómo se convirtió el nylon en un arma de guerra, por qué fueron las de Betty Grable las "piernas del millón de dólares", dónde se inició Elmer Batters y a qué tanta alharaca por los pies? Todas las respuestas están aquí, junto con fotos clásicas por Irving Klaw, Peter Gowland, Bunny Yeager, Batters y otros grandes maestros en el arte de las piernas. ... Leer resumen completo

HEART OF SPAIN: ROBERT CAPA S PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE SPANISH CIVIL WA R FROM THE COLLECTION OF THE MUSEO NACIONAL CENTRO DE ARTE REINA SOFIA
APERTURE, 2003

Resumen del libro

Considered by many to be the greatest war photographer, Robert Capa first gained recognition for images he made during the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939). This volume is the first to be devoted entirely to these photographs. In 1936, the rebellion of monarchists and fascists led by General Franco, in alliance with Hitler and Mussolini, mobilized anti-fascists all over the world, among them Robert Capa. During the entire period of the civil war, Capa traveled throughout the Loyalist-held areas of Spain, photographing battles, cities under siege, and the chaos of a modern nation at war with itself. One series of images documents the heroic Loyalist defense of Madrid; another the mass exodus of Catalonians from Barcelona to the French border. His iconic photograph of a Loyalist militiaman who has just been shot shocked the world with its brutal immediacy. Capa's pictures not only illuminated the strength and courage of the soldiers who carried on against overwhelming odds but also galvanized compassion for the innocent and injured. John Steinbeck praised Capa for his ability to "show the horror of a whole people in the face of a child." ... Leer resumen completo

AVEDON AT WORK IN THE AMERICAN WEST
Fecha Lanzamiento: 04/03/2004
UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS PRESS, 2003

Resumen del libro

"Laura Wilson shadowed the Shadower, and showed us as much as can be shown of how his work was done." —Larry McMurtry, from the Foreword Internationally acclaimed for his portraits of powerful and accomplished people and women of great beauty, Richard Avedon was one of the twentieth century's greatest photographers&md ash;but perhaps not the most obvious choice to create a portrait of ordinary people of the American West. Yet in 1979, the Amon Carter Museum of Fort Worth, Texas, daringly commissioned him to do just that. The resulting 1985 exhibition and book, In the American West, was a milestone in American photography and Avedon's most important body of work. His unflinching portraits of oilfield and slaughterhouse workers, miners, waitresses, drifters, mental patients, teenagers, and others captured the unknown and often ignored people who work at hard, uncelebrated jobs. Making no apologies for shattering stereotypes of the West and Westerners, Avedon said, "I'm looking for a new definition of a photographic portrait. I'm looking for people who are surprising—heartbreaking—or beautiful in a terrifying way. Beauty that might scare you to death until you acknowledge it as part of yourself." Photographer Laura Wilson worked with Avedon during the six years he was making In the American West. In Avedon at Work, she presents a unique photographic record of his creation of this masterwork—the first time a major photographer has been documented in great depth over an extended period of time. She combines images she made during the photographic sessions with entries from her journal to show Avedon's working methods, his choice of subjects, hiscreative process, and even his experiments and failures. Also included are a number of Avedon's finished portraits, as well as his own comments and letters from some of the subjects. Avedon at Work adds a new dimension to our understanding of one of the twentieth century's most significant series of portraits. For everyone interested in the creative process it confirms that, in Laura Wilson's words, "much as all these photographs may appear to be moments that just occurred, they are finally, in varying degrees, works of the imagination." ...

VV.AA.
BULFINCH PRESS, 2004

Resumen del libro

An all-new selection from the outrageous "enfant terrible" of contemporary photography, this volume is even sexier, funnier, and more fantastical than the bestselling "LaChapelle Land." 158 full-color photos. Hotel LaChapelle takes the reader another step deeper the shocking world of David LaChapelle. Each full-color page i s, metaphorically, a room in a crazy hotel. Hotel LaChapelle is full of neon, sex, and strange people -- and the result is a beachy postcard from that nuns-with-guns place in the sun that could only exist in the vision of David LaChapelle. Hotel LaChapelle will be luxuriously printed and handsomely, colorfully boxed. Boasting more than 158 full-color images, it is a passport to this groundbreaking photographer's unique imagination. His subjects include the hottest celebrities of today: Leonardo DiCaprio, Madonna, Tori Amos, Uma Thurman, Marilyn Manson, Daniel Day Lewis, Mike Myers, Pamela Anderson, and many others. Spectacular in style as in content, Hotel LaChapelle promises to be the wildest, freshest volume of photography of the next few years. ... Leer resumen completo

THE WILD HORSES OF SABLE ISLAND
Fecha Lanzamiento: 01/07/2014
ROBERTO DUTESCO
TENEUES VERLAG, 2014

Resumen del libro

Sable Island, a small island off the coast of eastern Canada is the site of some 500 wild horses, 500 shipwrecks and 500 years of known history. Never settled, the island, also known as the "Graveyard of the Atlantic," has seen temporary occupation by shipwrecked sailors, transported convicts, pirates and wreckers. The wild horses, named for the island they inhabit, abandoned there long ago or cast ashore from wrecks, are now the only terrestrial mammals on Sable Island.Roberto Dutesco's twenty years' documentation of Sable Island comes to you as a stunning volume of photographs, an unprecedented collection of extraordinary moments in a place uninhabited by humans, where the wild horses run free, unaware and unafraid of man. Dutesco portrays the wild beauty of these horses as well as the barren and unspoiled quality of the island, creating an immersive photographic memoir that captures the soul and spirit.The Romanian-born Canadian photographer's aim is to document and record this enchanted place for posterity, for our children's children, as an important place in Earth's history, and more so in our current moment, when unique wild places are vanishing.
