Starting with a foreword by Academy Award winner Rami Malek, Freddie Mercury - The Great Pretender, a Life in Pictures gives fans unprecedented access to one of the world's greatest artists and showmen. This official book about the lead singer of the rock band Queen contains superb photographs of Freddie Mercury in all aspects of his life. There are photographs from the private collections of his parents, Mr and Mrs Bulsara, from Brian May, as well as portraits by many famous contemporary photographers. Since the release of Bohemian Rhapsody, even more fans have discovered his amazing talents as performer and songwriter. This lavishly illustrated book celebrates Freddie's life as part of the British music scene, lovingly and painstakingly recounted in pictures and insightful text. These images capture the man in the moment through many stages of his life.
At a time when individual rights are being contested and when those on the fringes of society feel deeply threatened, this powerful photographic compilation delivers a message of humanity and inclusiveness that transcends geopolitical and cultural boundaries. Works by critically acclaimed photographers including Bruce Davidson, Paz Errazuriz, Jim Goldberg, Danny Lyon, Mary Ellen Mark, Boris Mikhailov, Daido Moriyama, and Dayanita Singh cast a compassionate, unflinching eye on the worlds inhabited by transsexuals, hookers, hustlers, bikers, junkies, circus performers, gang members, survivalists, petty criminals, and others who live in the shadows, on the streets, and out of the public eye. Grouped by photographer and ranging in genre from portraiture to photojournalism, these images were selected for their authentic and humane perspective, as well as for their artistic brilliance. An important testament to photography's power to both expose injustice and provide affirmation for those outside the norm, this collection bears witness to the ways social attitudes change across time and space, and how visual representation can promote understanding and dialogue.
Made in Dublin winner of Photography category in the British Design and Production Awards 'A singular new vision and an original contribution to the development of street photography' Martin Parr Focused on D1, Dublin's city centre, Eamonn Doyle's three major bodies of work, 'i', 'On' and 'End' - with new and previously unpublished images brought together here for the first time - tell the tale of today's Dublin and, in doing so, tell a broader story of today's Ireland. Setting aside the nostalgia and cliche so often seen in 'stories of Ireland', Doyle's vernacular photography is a thrill to the system, revealing the extraordinary within the ordinary to paint a striking portrait of a modern and multicultural capital city. Vivified in colour, the commonplace is seen anew, the everyday made epic as the city's inhabitants appear in stark, graphic black and white going about their daily business. Far from pedestrian, Doyle's work is the archetype of good street photography: real life brought to life through the lens and voice of the street. Punctuating the photography with specially commissioned narratives is the distinctive voice of Kevin Barry, evoking the world beyond the frame: the sights, smells, sounds and sensations of a Dubliner's daily life. Designed by Doyle's longtime collaborator Niall Sweeney, fusing contemporary Irish word and contemporary Irish image, Made in Dublin is one of the most exciting and original books of street photography in recent years.
