Saying No to the War Party
William Hughes
0595292127
Sept 2003
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Saying "No" to the War Party is a historical record. It documents the opposition, in the U.S., towards Iraq War No. 2. It takes the reader on a journey to anti-War rallies, from Washington D.C. to New York City.

William Hughes goes for the jugular by attacking the War Hawks. No one is safe from his avenging pen, including Israeli Firsters, Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman (D-CT) and Rep. Tom DeLay (R-TX); Pentagon lackey, George F. Will; and media mogul, Mortimer B. Zuckerman.

Along the way, Hughes stands up for France, American workers, the Catholic laity, and the Palestinian people, who have been suffering under the yoke of Israeli occupation for over 35 years.

The War Party's policies are bankrupting the nation and making America more enemies in the Islamic World. This book details a struggle that will...

Flowers : Portraits of Intimacy

1584790792


·
 
Book Description
Award-winning photographer Adam Kufeld takes on the always popular subject of flowers in a fresh and provocative way, using a close-range lens to describe the intricate, surprising forms hidden inside blossoms. His macro lens allows Kufeld to capture detail invisible to the naked eye, and take advantage of the naturally brilliant color and suggestive forms of petal, stamen, and pistil to create images that transform their subject. His elegant, stylized, seductive portraits depict common garden flowers, including morning glories, bougainvillea, daisies, poppies, lilies, zinnias, roses, and passion flowers, as well as more exotic varieties, such as orchids. His original GiclÈe prints, on traditional watercolor paper, have been hugely successful in exhibition. Flowers: Portraits of Intimacy includes more than 60...

Richard Avedon Portraits

0810935406


·
 
From Publishers Weekly
The subject of an upcoming retrospective at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Avedon long ago entered the canon of fashion photography and modern portraiture. His trademark images of people standing against white backdrops, at once unflinching and glamorous in their effect, have helped define our idea of celebrity itself (if Avedon shot them, they must be famous). This slipcased, accordion-fold collection of 50 black and white portraits from the past 50 years, produced for the exhibition and including an essay by curator Maria Morris Hambourg and Met research assistant Mia Fineman, as well as a brief word from the photographer himself, will do little to change Avedon's reputation. It offers, in essence, a greatest hits collection of well-known faces---Andy Warhol, William Burroughs, and that pale, hairless...

2006 Wegman Puppies Wall Calendar
William Wegman

Wall Calendar
·
 
Book Review
Widely respected for his stunningly astute observations of dogs (more specifically, of the majestic Weimaraner), William Wegman once again dazzles with Puppies. Here Wegman chronicles three generations of Weimaraners with his insightful commentary and exceptional photography. Wegman's love for his dogs is expressed in every photograph and in every line of his awe-filled text. Speaking about his second Weimaraner, Fay, the author says, "She looked like she had wandered out of a Rousseau painting. Those luminous yellow eyes." Fay's radiance inspired Wegman to greater creative depths: he began dressing her up to appear almost human, a common theme in his photographs. Fay starred in many Wegman titles, including ABC and Cinderella. It is Fay's children, and later her grandchildren, who take the center stage in William...


Locker Room Nudes: Dieux de Stade: The Rugby Players of Stade Francais Paris and Their Guests
Francois Rousseau (Photographer)
0789313073
August 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
This remarkable collection of candid nude photos of France’s national rugby team goes beneath the uniform to reveal what real jocks look like underneath it all. Each image taken by leading French photographer François Rousseau depicts the rugby player―alone or with teammates―undressing, lounging on the bench, showering. Locker Room Men is at once a celebration of athletes and the beauty of the male form as well as the fulfillment of the fantasy of going behind the scenes in a winning team’s locker room.
Sure to appeal to both gay men and straight women, these photos are unusual because the men are not models. They don’t work out just to look good―and look good they do―their bodies are sculpted by winning victories on the field. They aren’t made up, shaved, or...

Book Review
A picture tells a thousand stories, but the one it doesn't tell is how the shot was made. Barbara London and John Upton's Photography is an all-inclusive look at the craft of photography. This book will help any amateur move up a few notches, and it serves as a refresher course for professionals as well. The sixth edition of this classic work (the first was published in 1976) includes a companion Web site with interactive activities, Web resources, and a learning archive. Amply illustrated with at least one photograph or diagram on almost every page, Photography is the one reference work every student of photography must have--even those who will never set foot in a classroom. --Brenda Pittsley --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

In Character : Actors Acting
Howard Schatz
0821229079
April 13, 2006
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Starred Review. Photographer Schatz (Athlete) turns his lens to actors and challenges them to show off their craft. Many of the names are well known (Chevy Chase, Danny Glover, James Earl Jones, Edie Falco), but Schatz includes character actors as well, making for a balanced gathering. The actors are given a one-line description of a situation and are then photographed close up, with only their heads and hands to use. Although some reactions are broad and make for lively photographs—many people open their mouths so wide that every filling gleams—it's the subtle shifts in expression that stand out. With only their faces available to convey the response to a complex situation, some actors choose to make tiny adjustments; these smaller, more contained expressions are intriguing, as when Robert...


Woman in the Mirror

·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Starred Review. Wealthy or poor, young or old, famous or infamous, all of Avedon's subjects are photographed with the same stark, minimalist touch. This new collection spans five decades of the late photographer's work and focuses on the portraiture king's pictures of women. Beginning with a simple, joyous image of the Italian actress Anna Magnani in all her hearty, make-free glory and ending with a casual, breezy shot of mezzo-soprano Lorraine Hunt Lieberson, the loosely chronological succession of Avedon's primarily black-and-white shots demonstrates that, while the idea of photographing women is nothing new, the way the former Harper's Bazaar and Vogue contributor approached his subjects was. As explained in art historian Hollander's ending essay, Avedon was the first photographer to break down the...


One Man's Wilderness: An Alaskan Odyssey
Sam Keith, Richard Proenneke
0882405136
May 1999
Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
This book made a big splash when it debuted in 1973. Keith based the text on the journals and photography of Richard Proenneke, who, after racking up years of 50-hour work weeks, did what many of us only fantasize about: he chucked it all and went to live in the woods. Now in his 80s, Proenneke still abides in the log cabin he built with his own hands and has become an icon for naturalists. Though few will follow Proenneke's lead, his story can be quite inspiring. Copyright 1999 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Book Description
To live in a pristine land ... to roam the wilderness ... to choose a site, cut trees, and build a home ... Thousands have had such dreams, but Richard Proenneke lived them. Here is a tribute to a man in tune with his surroundings who carved his...

Diane Arbus Revelations

Book Review
Muscle men, midgets, socialites, circus performers and asylum inmates: in the 1950s and '60s, photographer Diane Arbus (1923-1971) cast her strong eye on them all, capturing them as no one else could. Her documentary-style photos of society's margin-walkers were objective and reverential, while she often portrayed so-called normal people looking far more freakish than the freaks. Her powerful work was well-received in its day. Arbus received Guggenheim Fellowships in 1963 and 1966 and was included in a major show at MOMA in 1967. But her work entered the realm of near-myth after her 1971 suicide. Posthumously cast as everything from patron saint of the underdog to a crass exploiter of the mentally challenged, Arbus has curiously never had a large retrospective until the show Revelations was organized by Arbus' ...


Untamed
Steve Bloom

September 2004
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
In this extraordinary collection of full-color images, wildlife photographer Bloom (In Praise of Primates) surveys a dazzling diversity of fauna and landscapes from all six continents, with extended photo essays on such endearing species as dolphins, polar bears, elephants and parrots. Bloom combines the obsessive patience of the nature photographer (he lurked in a boat for 17 days to capture a single picture of a great white shark leaping from the water in pursuit of a seal) with a painterly feel for color, texture and composition. Images include a swirling, impressionistic photo of a sprinting cheetah; a starkly lit, hyper-real shot of two bald eagles locked in midair combat; a misty, chiaroscuro view of a giraffe browsing at dusk; a grim picture of lions playfully savaging a helpless young hippo; a character...

From Booklist
This two-volume boxed set is worth every penny for the travel and ecology-minded reader. Together, the set lends graphic and poignant documentation to a spectacularly successful conservation drive by nature photographer Nichols and ecologist Fay. They spent 12 years enjoying and recording the pristine (and easily destructible) flora and fauna system in West Africa (their efforts resulted in the establishment of 13 national parks in the nation of Gabon). Volume 1 of this set showcases their wildlife photography, and the images are simply breathtaking on both subject matter and aesthetic levels. Volume 2 presents excerpts from Fay's handwritten journal during a specific 456-day, 2,000-mile trek he and Nichols took in the region, and his descriptions are every bit as thrilling as the photos. Give this to jaded armchair...
