Zero Hour - 100 years on: views from the parapet of the Somme (Hardcover, Main): Jolyon Fenwick Zero Hour - 100 years on: views from the parapet of the Somme (Hardcover, Main)
Jolyon Fenwick 1
R590 R432 Discovery Miles 4 320 Save R158 (27%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The first day of the battle of the Somme, 1 July 1916, was the most devastating event of the First World War for the British army. In Zero Hour, 14 superlatively photographed panoramas (each one a four-page gatefold, opening to nearly 1 metre wide) show the Somme's major sites as they look today. Taken from the exact viewpoints of the front-line British troops as they began their advance towards the German trenches at 7.30 a.m., these hauntingly peaceful present-day views are annotated (in the handwritten military style of the time) to show the lethal German defensive positions at the moment of the attack. Jolyon Fenwick's eerily compelling photographs are accompanied by detailed maps and vivid descriptions of the day's events, detailing their awful human loss: out of 116,000 British and Empire troops committed to the assault, by nightfall 57,470 had become casualties, and 19,240 were dead. Zero Hour is simultaneously a celebration of the renewing power of nature, and a powerful and unconventional reminder of the horrors of the past.

Animal Kingdom - A Collection on Portraits (Hardcover): R Ford Animal Kingdom - A Collection on Portraits (Hardcover)
R Ford
R725 R539 Discovery Miles 5 390 Save R186 (26%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Acclaimed photographer Randal Ford celebrates our fascination with and love of animals through his engaging portraits of the animal kingdom. A young male lion cub seems to sport a rebellious mohawk; a chimpanzee adopts a pensive pose; a curious duckling cocks his head at the camera lens and flaps his wings. The featured animals cover a wide range, from birds such as the African crane, cockatoos, flamingos, and roosters, to big cats such as tigers, cheetahs, and leopards, to Arabian horses, bulls, and Longhorn sheep, among many others. Bird and animal lovers will be drawn to the powerful and emotionally engaging images that seem to reveal the individual character of the other animals that share the Earth with us. Elegantly designed and packaged, this book will be the perfect gift and addition to the home of any lover of animals or fine photography.

Extra! Weegee (Hardcover): Daniel Blau Extra! Weegee (Hardcover)

No photographer came close to capturing the sensations, scandals, and catastrophes of 1930s and '40s New York like Weegee (1899-1968). His striking images--captured through his uncanny ability to be on the spot and ready to shoot when things happened--have become part of the visual vocabulary through which we understand the period. This book, however, offers something new: drawing on an NEA archive that was only discovered in 2012, it presents countless never-before-seen Weegee photos. We see new angles on many of his familiar subjects--from the hardened police officer to the loud-mouthed crook; the midnight boozer to the dancing jazz musician; a dramatic conflagration to the celebrations at the end of World War II--but we also get a glimpse of an unknown side of Weegee through surprising photographs of happy people enjoying themselves. The works are complemented by a fascinating account of the rediscovery of the archive, which had been missing for decades.

Another Way of Telling - A Possible Theory of Photography (Paperback): John Berger, Jean Mohr Another Way of Telling - A Possible Theory of Photography (Paperback)
John Berger, Jean Mohr
R583 R439 Discovery Miles 4 390 Save R144 (25%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

In one of the most eloquent accounts of photography ever devised (originally published in 1982 and unavailable for many years), the writer John Berger and the photographer Jean Mohr set out to understand the fundamental nature of photography and how it makes its impact. Asking a range of questions - What is a photograph? What do photographs mean? How can they be used? - they give their answers in terms of a photograph as `a meeting place where the interests of the photographer, the photographed, the viewer and those who are using the photography are often contradictory'. From these beginnings they develop a theory of photography that has at its centre the form's essential ambiguity, arguing that photography is totally unlike a film and has nothing to do with reportage. Rather, it constitutes `another way of telling'. The unique combination of critic and photographer results in a work that moves beyond the landmarks established by Walter Benjamin, Roland Barthes and Susan Sontag to establish a new theory of photography. This unique combination of words and pictures includes 230 photographs by Jean Mohr.

'A colourful and comprehensive guide to life on the waterways. Practical, pretty and accessible, it's charmingly designed while providing excellent advice.' BBC Countryfile Magazine

Full-time life on a narrowboat is a novelty for so many of us, and is endlessly fascinating. How do people downsize their lives and belongings into what looks like a large, crayon-coloured floating toy-box? Narrowboat Life answers all the questions we've wanted to ask about the ins and outs of liveaboard life on the inland waterways.

The book is filled with beautiful, enthralling photography of the waterways themselves, the narrowboats that occupy them and, most importantly, every nook and cranny of their insides. Should you become seduced, the author gives solid hands-on advice about how to make a narrowboat (or widebeam, cruiser or small Dutch barge) your home.

Accompanying these absorbing images, the playful and always informative text satisfies our curiosity to know, among other things:

How do you fit all of your stuff into such a restricted space?

How much does a narrowboat cost?

How do you hold down a job if you're always on the move?

Does s/he (the cat, dog, parrot) live on the boat as well?

Is it cold in the winter?

This revised edition of Narrowboat Life features new and expanded sections on ecological living on the waterways - recycling, upcycling and living green - and the costs of living aboard in cities and countryside versus living on-land, as well as new 'step-aboard' profiles of more beautiful boats.

No restrictions."-Marlene Dietrich The playground in the desert built by the mob and transformed by Howard Hughes, the "fabulous, extraordinary madhouse," that is Las Vegas, Nevada, has long been regarded as the Entertainment Capital of the World.

An adoring ode to this ultimate adult playground, it celebrates the best of old Las Vegas-the Sands Hotel, the Stardust, Fremont Street, the Golden Nugget, the Riviera Hotel, the Desert Inn, and the Horseshoe-and its legendary headliners, including Frank Sinatra, Marlene Dietrich, Elvis Presley, Liberace, Ann-Margret, Sammy Davis Jr., Eartha Kitt, Noel Coward, and of course, the gorgeous Vegas showgirls. Framed by quotes and short essays that profile the marquee names that made Las Vegas the ultimate destination, the legendary years of this magical city live on in all their glory in Vegas Gold.

Singer, songwriter, poet, and artist PJ Harvey has built a long and successful career by always pushing herself further, exploring her limits, and letting her curiosity lead her. In recent years, her interests have become more global, and her journeys for inspiration have sent her farther afield. Her friend and collaborator, the photographer Seamus Murphy, has twenty-five years of experience traveling the world and documenting it. For "The Hollow of the Hand, "the two set out together, to Kosovo and Afghanistan, and to Washington, D.C.: she would collect words, he would collect pictures, and together they would create an extraordinary chronicle of our life and times. Harvey and Murphy have collaborated previously: for her critically acclaimed record "Let England Shake," Harvey asked the artist to create short films to accompany each song, resulting in a sort of visual album to accompany the musical one. Here, these two socially conscious storytellers have built something together from the ground. "The Hollow of the Hand "marks the first publication of Harvey's impassioned poetry, in conversation with Murphy's indelible images: a landmark project. "The Hollow of the Hand "is available in two formats: a deluxe hardcover edition with highest quality photographic reproductions, and an accessibly priced reader's edition in paperback.""""

Massive, elusive, and always deserving of respect, the walrus is one of the Arctic's most recognizable animals.

Every major camera system used by the KGB, and several used by the GRU are included. A bonus at the end of the book is an exhaustive glossary on KGB and GRU photographic systems and optical devices. This book is a must-have for camera collectors, military enthusiasts, historians, and counterintelligence officers.
