Rome Then and Now (Hardcover): Federica D'Orazio Rome Then and Now (Hardcover)

Rome is `the eternal city' and was a stopping-off place on the Grand Tour long before the days of photography. Despite the preservation of so many classic ruins across the city, there has been significant change. Over hundreds of years of flooding, the river Tiber deposited silt across the Forum and low-lying sites. Many archive images show a completely different ground level to the 21st century view, after excavation revealed their true height. When Mussoilini came to the power in 1922 he set about creating wider avenues and removing some of the older buildings, as can been from the changes to via della Conciliazione. Rome Then and Now visits all the major tourist locations in the city and shows pictures of how they once were, sometimes unfenced with goats grazing amongst the ruins! Sites include: St Peter's Square, Colosseum, Pantheon, Spanish Steps, Piazza del Popolo, the Forum, Trajan's Column, Trevi Fountain, Arch of Titus, Arch of Conatantine, Piazza Venezia, Piazza Navona, Quirinal Palace, Vittoriano, Tarpeian Hill, Palatine Hill, Circus Maximus.

Shifting Places - Peter Downsbrough, the Photographs (Paperback): Alexander Streitberger Shifting Places - Peter Downsbrough, the Photographs (Paperback)
Alexander Streitberger
R661 Discovery Miles 6 610 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Since the late 1960s, Peter Downsbrough (b. 1940) has been an important figure in contemporary art, associated with such major international art movements as minimal art, conceptual art, and visual poetry. His artistic work embraces an equally wide range of media: sculpture, architecture, books, film, and photography.

This book provides, for the first time, a profound insight into Downsbrough's diverse and complex use of photography within his artistic work over the last 40 years. A substantial essay by Alexander Streitberger discusses the artist's photographic work which includes single prints, series, postcards, collages, and books within its aesthetic and historical context. Streitberger relates Downsbrough's work to fundamental issues of photographic practice and discourse such as the photograph as document, the representation of urban space, space-time relations, collage as an aesthetic and political means of expression, the relationship between still and moving image, and the context of presentation.

The rich image material some of which has never been published before is arranged by the artist himself in order to create a fertile exchange between the topics of the text and his own intervention. Concluding with an exclusive interview with the artist, this book offers a genuine dialogue between artistic practice and theoretical reflection."

Seaside Shelters (Hardcover): Will Scott Seaside Shelters (Hardcover)
Will Scott
R362 R258 Discovery Miles 2 580 Save R104 (29%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

In Seaside Shelters, Will Scott documents and celebrates the wide variety of shelters adorning the British seasides. A testament to the heyday of British summer holidays and the country's notorious fickle weather, the shelters now mostly stand deserted. Scott's talented eye captures the, at times faded, beauty of the buildings. Most of the shelters were built in the late-19th and early-20th century and cover a wealth of architectural styles, from Victorian to Art Deco to Bauhaus. Locations range from iconic seaside resorts to lesser-known gems along the coast, including Blackpool, Great Yarmouth, the Isle of Wight, Clacton-on-Sea, Portsmouth, Aberystwyth, Swanage and Cromer.

Grown up as a typical car-obsessed American kid, Jory Hull explores the primitive, fascinating elegance of racing vehicles from a bygone era.

The artist frames these machines as the colorful, handmade tools that they are, often abstracting their details into almost pure graphic compositions. This series of photographs, taken over the course of a decade, capture the surfaces and inner workings of these objects at rest, revealing unusual details of these machines designed for fierce competition, created to live at high speed. The quiet beauty of these cars at rest, one imagines the sights and sounds of them at full fury.

In September 1996 a Frenchman, so little known in English football that fans asked "Arsene Who?", walked into Arsenal. In the subsequent 22 years as manager he transformed the club. A total renovation of the training, stadium, style, economics of the team and the attraction of a global audience has taken place under Wenger's instruction. This fascinating era is chronicled from the very beginning with distinctive photographs taken from inside the inner sanctum of the club by official Arsenal photographer Stuart MacFarlane, who has had privileged access for many years. Award winning journalist Amy Lawrence introduces each section to set the scene. This captivating collection of images is captioned with personal anecdotes from Arsene Wenger himself as he reminisces about the significant moments and people that have defined his time at the club.

Mobile's long history includes joyous Mardi Gras celebrations and tragic natural disasters. Civil War and segregation, shipping and manufacturing, dirt streets and booming wharves are part of its fascinating story. Cargo shipped to and from its busy docks gradually shifted from cotton to timber to bananas to manufactured goods. In World War II, its population grew exponentially as the city became an important shipbuilder for America's arsenal. Historic Photos of Mobile transports readers to a time of hoop skirts and horse-drawn carriages, then shows them how the city changed during the first half of the twentieth century. Timeless, rarely seen, black-and-white images capture historic colleges, family-owned shops, the longest American flag ever displayed, hurricane damage, social change, tall ships, and scenes of daily life in generations long gone.

The comprehensive, accessible and authoritative illustrated reference to the history, art and science of photography. In one single, elegant volume, this publication features over 300 iconic photographs and contains more than 1,200 concise yet fully detailed entries on all aspects of the subject. Though much information can today be found online, locating it takes time and sources can have questionable provenance and uncertain academic credentials. All previous dictionaries of photography are now outdated, as well, focusing either on the famous and influential practitioners of the genre or presented as mere glossaries of technical terms. This landmark publication is the culmination of ten years of development and research. Working with an international expert panel of 150 consultants and 77 researchers, Nathalie Herschdorfer has triumphed in creating the first source of information for all scholars, practitioners and collectors of photography to turn to in the future.

Arthur Danto has described Lynn Saville as New York's answer to Eug ne Atget, because she "prowls her city at the other end of the day, picking up pieces of the past in the present, just before it is swallowed by shadows." For her new monograph, Dark City, Saville focused on vacant spaces--shuttered storefronts, back alleys, blank billboards, empty lots--with the occasional ghostly figure hurrying through the frame. Working at twilight and dawn with a medium-format camera (setting up her tripod quickly so as not to attract police attention), Saville captured busy city streets depopulated and emptied out, industrial spaces and storefronts alike gone quiet. Color and light come from the sky, streetlights, neon signs or surveillance lighting. Seemingly otherworldly, the images in Dark City also tell a more pragmatic story of the changing urban landscape--vacancies caused by financial crisis, and construction projects spurred on by economic recovery, gentrification and development. Dark City includes an introduction by acclaimed author Geoff Dyer and photographs taken across the US, including in Columbus, Ohio; Portland, Maine; Lowell, Massachusetts; Jersey City and the Meadowlands, as well as around New York City. Lynn Saville is a New York-based photographer who specializes in photographs taken at twilight and dawn--"the boundary times between night and day," as she calls them. Saville studied at the Pratt Institute and Duke University and is represented by Yancey Richardson in New York.

Hong Kong was first captured on camera when the British arrived to lay claim to its `fragrant harbour' in 1841.

Pairing rare and previously unpublished photographs with contemporary views taken from the same location, Hong Kong Then and Now highlights the rich and varied history of this constantly evolving metropolis, from Victoria Harbour, the Hong Kong Club and the Star Ferry to Kowloon Walled CIty, Chek Lap Kok Airport and the gleaming skyscrapers of its central banking district. Sites include: Victoria Harbour, the Peak, the Star Ferry Pier, Man Ho Temple, Ladder Street, Queen's Road Central, Hong Kong Club, Prince's Building, HSBC, Noonday Gun, Happy Valley Racecourse, Tiger Balm Garden, Peninsula Hotel, Kai Tak Airport, Kowloon Walled City, Shenzhen, Repulse Bay, Chek Lap Kok Airport, St. Paul's (Macau).

Iconic figure of the Argentinian pampa and the Patagonian steppe, the gaucho has instilled his soul into these seemingly endless expanses. Like the harsh and lonely land that shaped him, the gaucho has always fascinated city dwellers in search of wild breakaways. Contemporary gauchos certainly have little in common with their distant forerunners - whether pariahs or guerillas - except perhaps for self-denial in the face of continuing spartan life conditions as the inevitable price of their relative freedom. Nevertheless, insidious changes in their natural environment are increasingly compromising their resilience. This book is a tribute to these forerunners of a long-standing Argentine tradition and to the Correntino gauchos, humble heirs to a remarkable human epic. Text in English and French.

This book examines the work of US-born photographer Yasuhiro Ishimoto (1921-2012) through its connections to Chicago, where he lived for over a decade and returned to repeatedly throughout his life. Long celebrated in Japan as one of the most influential photographers of the twentieth century, Ishimoto also maintained deep ties to his adopted home city of Chicago, where he arrived in 1945 after having been imprisoned in a US internment camp during World War II. It was in Chicago that he developed his uniquely modernist vision in two key ways. First, he created works that engaged in important conversation with that of Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Harry Callahan, Aaron Siskind, and others at the historic Institute of Design. Second, he immersed himself directly in the city's neighborhoods, where he captured important social changes reflective of broader shifts elsewhere in the United States. This catalog--which accompanies an exhibition opening in September 2018 at the DePaul Art Museum--features both black-and-white and full-color reproductions of key works by Ishimoto, as well as in-depth essays by exhibition cocurators Jasmine Alinder and John Tain.

Peru (Hardcover): David Bailey Peru (Hardcover)

This new title by David Bailey originates from two fashion shoots on location in Peru - the first in the late 60s, the other from the late 80s for Tatler. Having been struck by the natural beauty of the people and places on these fashion assignments, Bailey set out to document people around the world in their natural habitats. Peru collects his photography from those visits, a mixture of landscape, fashion and portrait photography, showcasing Bailey's immense and multifaceted talents. In both colour and black and white, Bailey captures and celebrates the undeniable beauty of the land and its people.

James Ravilious (1939-1999) trained as an artist, like his father Eric, but a Cartier-Bresson exhibition converted him to photography, which he taught himself. In 1972, a move to his wife Robin's homeland - a very rural, unspoilt part of North Devon - inspired him. It also produced the perfect job: recording daily life in that traditional bit of old England before it was modernised. He devoted himself to this for more than seventeen years. The results, over 75,000 black and white negatives in the Beaford Archive, form what Barry Lane, Secretary General of the Royal Photographic Society, called 'a unique body of work, unparalleled at least in this country for its scale and quality' .James was a friendly, modest man with a very unintrusive approach. Because of this, and because of the length of the project, he was able to make a uniquely detailed portrait, intimate and sympathetic, of a whole way of life in one small piece of countryside: its landscapes, its seasons, its people, their hardships and their pleasures. His respect for his subjects is manifest in his work. He never sentimentalised their lives. It was vital to him that his record should be completely honest. But it is not merely social history. It is also the work of someone who composed with the eye of an artist, and who often looked at his world with artists such as Breughel, Claude Lorrain, Thomas Bewick and Samuel Palmer in mind.

Surrealism at Play (Paperback): Susan Laxton Surrealism at Play (Paperback)

R542 R435 Discovery Miles 4 350 Save R107 (20%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

In Surrealism at Play Susan Laxton writes a new history of surrealism in which she traces the centrality of play to the movement and its ongoing legacy. For surrealist artists, play took a consistent role in their aesthetic as they worked in, with, and against a post-World War I world increasingly dominated by technology and functionalism. Whether through exquisite-corpse drawings, Man Ray's rayographs, or Joan Miro's visual puns, surrealists became adept at developing techniques and processes designed to guarantee aleatory outcomes. In embracing chance as the means to produce unforeseeable ends, they shifted emphasis from final product to process, challenging the disciplinary structures of industrial modernism. As Laxton demonstrates, play became a primary method through which surrealism refashioned artistic practice, everyday experience, and the nature of subjectivity.

A visually arresting chronicle of the career of one of the top fashion photographers of a generation. Glen Luchford is a true fashion photographer's photographer.
