On This Earth: Photographs from East Africa
Nick Brandt (Photographer)
0811848655
November 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Nick Brandt depicts the animals of East Africa with an intimacy and artistry unmatched by other photographers who choose wildlife as their subject. He creates these majestic sepia and blue-tone photos—contrasting moments of quintessential stillness with bursts of dramatic action—by engaging with these creatures on an exceptionally intimate level, without the customary use of a telephoto lens. Evocative of classical art, from dignified portraits to sweeping natural tableaux, Brandt's images artfully and simply capture animals in their natural states of being. With a foreword by Alice Sebold and an introduction by Jane Goodall, On This Earth is a gorgeous portfolio of some of the last wild animals—and a heartfelt elegy to a vanishing world.

Book Description
Born in New York City in 1928, Stanley Kubrick began taking photographs when in high school. At sixteen, he sent a photograph he took of a newsstand after President Roosevelt’s death to Look Magazine. The publication of the photograph marked the beginning of Kubrick’s work for the magazine, which lasted until 1950, when Kubrick made his first 16mm documentary film. During those five years Kubrick completed dozens of photographic reportage assignments in New York City as well as abroad. The resulting thousands of negatives have remained in the archives of Look Magazine ever since. Kubrick’s photographs vary in subject, but people are the central focus of attention, as is his commitment to narration. Whether capturing the meditative state of passengers in a series of portraits made in the New York...

Onne Van der Wal (Photographer)
0821228447
April 2004
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
An award-winning nautical photographer and former yacht racer portrays the power of the ocean and the blowing wind in 114 awe-inspiring images. In one shot, the star-studded sail of America’s Cup champ Endeavour unfurls beautifully over the sea. In another, a Swan 77 "slams into a wave off Beavertail, Jamestown, Rhode Island." Van der Wal also captures homey behind-the-scenes details, such as yellow raingear-clad sailors doing maintenance work on a schooner. And not all the images are of racing boats—among the highlights are shots of a rustic fishing boat beached in Chile and a hand-built Kayuka. The author’s respect for maritime history and tradition is evident, and his photos pay homage to the passions of boat-lovers around the world.Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed...

Hardcover

From Publishers Weekly
With more than 60 years behind the lens, including a stint as a New Deal documentarian and more than two decades at Life magazine, Parks is by acclamation the nation's most important African-American photographer. Film fans know him as the man who directed Shaft, along with several other feature films and well-regarded documentaries, many of them focused on black urban life. Meant to accompany A Hungry Heart, his fourth prose memoir (also a November book), this collection of Parks's straightforward, sincere verse plays up its links with his pictures, almost 50 of which adorn the book, from abstract photos of crystals and sunsets to closeups of soldiers and candids of people in need. The verse itself consists of clear and sometimes moving meditations on Parks's upbringing ("Momma's words refuse to die./ Instead...
