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.
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.
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. His influential and imaginative style-- iconic, elaborately lit, highly cinematic, with extreme narratives--reinvigorated fashion photography in the 1990s and 2000s. This book is a photographic artist's diary documenting the span of Luchford's thirty-three-year career. Presented in the form of one continuous overlapping photographic montage, the book consists of intermixed tear sheets, prints, Polaroids, objects, and ephemera. It includes the young Luchford's first photographs of his U.K. post-punk, new romantic friends in the eighties; the best of his gritty nineties editorials, such as his iconic shoot of Kate Moss for The Face; his polished fashion work and celebrity portraits for publications such as Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, and W; as well as memorable advertising campaigns for Prada, Yves Saint Laurent, Chloe, and Calvin Klein.
ToiletMartin PaperParr is a new, special edition of Toiletpaper published by Damiani. This unique edition celebrates a new suite of pictures presenting a back-to-back of images made in collaboration with Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari on the one side and Martin Parr on the other. The recipe is very tasty: the founders of Toiletpaper hosted Martin Parr as a special guest and asked him to form a dialogue with Toiletpaper images, coming back to them with a photograph from his archive for each image. The result is a rapid succession of images in which irony, subversion and provocation force the viewer to the impelling discovery of the next pair of images. And if you are not yet satiated by the end of this issue, you have only to start once more at the beginning.
To Andrew Fundy Funderburg, street photography means hitting the streets with a simple camera (or even a phone) and capturing everyday life. To do it well, the photographer has to be part of the action - part of the moment. He or she must be willing to be yelled at, and brave enough to pick up that camera and point it at a stranger. And when the moment is perfect, magic happens; the viewer can see into the moment and the soul of the person in the photograph, and that split-second exposure becomes a slice of history, frozen in time.
Little known to many who live there and to the throngs of tourists who pass through each year, New York and New Jersey are home to a diverse and vibrant cold water surfing community. Ice Cream Headaches captures a snapshot of this often overlooked facet of America's most dense metropolis. Over a span of four years, writer Ed Thompson and photographer Julien Roubinet have logged more than 5,000 miles from Eastern Long Island to Cape May in South Jersey to interview and photograph forty surfers, surf board shapers, artists and documentarians of the culture personally. From local legend and Montauk fisherman Charlie Weimar to Pulitzer-prize-winning author William Finnegan and professional surfers with global followings such as Quincy Davis, Mikey De Temple and Balaram Stack, this new monograph highlights surfers who experiment with new forms, materials, ideas or surfing styles. Across 192 pages, the book features four essays rich with quotes and anecdotes, over 150 photographs, and a foreword by iconic portrait and surf photographer Michael Halsband. Ice Cream Headaches takes the reader inside the surf breaks and stomping grounds of the surfers who call New York and New Jersey home, surfers who are willing to pull on a 5mm wetsuit, wade through a foot of snow on the beach, and battle thirty mile per hour winds for a few fleeting moments inside a yawning barrel.
For close to ten years, two women--one armed with a camera, the other with a pencil (and later a laptop), traveled around the world to document the inspiring work of women activists. In every corner of the globe, they found women striving--sometimes against enormous odds--to help one another and effect real change in the daily lives of their people. "Womankind: Faces of Change Around the World, ," isa tribute to these inspiring women leaders. Stunning duotone photographs present the many faces of courage, while moving profiles highlight the women's own words, describing the challenges and dangers they have faced, as well as their impressive achievements, their relentless determination, and their resolute hope for the future. "Womankind" features women from more than thirty countries or five continents--some internationally famous, others little-known outside their own communities, all of them fighting in courageous and creative ways for human rights, social justice, women's equality, environmental preservation, and cultural freedom. In a time of increasing worldwide tension, these women offer alternative models for peaceful social change, and proof of the importance of women's leadership in shaping the public discourse and bringing about a more fast and sustainable world. A compelling testament to the vitality of women's work for change, "Womankind" is also an ideal gift for anyone who still believes in the value of speaking truth to power.
