Book Description
The camera is superior to the eye, and the photograph can, and ideally should, portray the world more graphic than reality itself.--Andreas Feininger The basic principles underlying the photographic art of Andreas Feininger are clarity, simplicity, and organization. The eldest son of painter Lyonel Feininger, he was born in Paris in 1906. Upon completion of training as a cabinet-maker at the Bauhaus in Weimar in the early 20s, he went on to study architecture in the state schools of Weimar and Zerbst. It was while working as an architectural photographer in Stockholm that he developed the sweeping vistas and fine balance for which his pictures were famous. Emigrating to New York following the outbreak of World War II, Feininger was hired as a photo-editor by Life magazine. In his own work, he captured images of urban...

Book Description
Born in Paris and raised in Germany, Andreas Feininger (1906-1999) was the son of American artist and Bauhaus teacher Lyonel Feininger. By the 1920s, the younger Feininger had already established several stylistic traits in his photographic work, such as monumentalized subject matter and emphasis on texture and line. His nature photographs tend to reveal patterns in animal and plant forms as found in the backbones of a snake or veins in a leaf. After immigrating to America in 1939, Feininger completed almost 350 photographic essays for Life magazine between 1943 and 1962. In addition he published numerous books on photographic theory and technique and his photographs were included in the Museum of Modern Art exhibition "The Family of Man." Structures of Nature presents a selection of Feininger's stunning nature...

From Booklist
Design consultant Alan Siegel has amassed a collection of photographs that is large and good enough to require a curator, Miles Barth. Together, owner and curator have mounted an exhibition, to which this 14-by-12-inch album is the visual complement. It contains some famous images, such as Nat Fein's Pulitzer Prize-winning Babe Ruth's Farewell, but mostly others that ought to be better known, such as the late (1970) Man Ray "Rayograph" of a feather with "ABC" silk-screened in color over it. The pictures are presented in subject or stylistic categories, such as "Design & Abstraction," "Landscapes," and "Flowers." Siegel introduces the collection and the categorical sections rather too personally; he often sounds overly full of himself. So skim his writing, skip the strange preface by a museum curator (he and Siegel...

Book Description
This book is a superb collection of American scenes taken in the 1940, 1950s and 1960s by one of photography's all time greats, Andreas Feininger. Each image is a fine example of Feininger's incorruptible sense of proportion, a tribute to the inimitable aesthetic quality that became the signature of his work. Many illustrate his ceaseless quest to minimize the difference between idea and reality, his desire to allow mundane subjects to slip into Utopia. Feininger's America is a photographic tour de force, from Chicago to New Orleans, from Hollywood to Coral Gables.
