America by the Yard: Cirkut Camera: Images from the Early Twentieth Century
America by the Yard
Cirkut Camera: Images from the Early Twentieth Century
Hardcover      ISBN: 0393051609

This book is both a history of an unusual camera and a splendid display of its product. "Yard longs," as the Cirkut camera's huge panoramic photographs were called, caused a sensation after the camera's introduction in the early twentieth century. Cirkut cameras were used to record scenic vistas, epic events, and group photographs of conventioneers, workers, soldiers, and students. Here, with many foldouts that show the prints in their full glory, are such historic moments as the building of the Panama Canal, the sunken battleship Maine in Havana Harbor, the crash of the dirigible Shenandoah, the fiftieth anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg, the 1908 Wellesley graduating class, and a very early race at the Indianapolis Speedway. More mundane subjects a bathing beauty contest, locomotive factory workers are equally fascinating in this format. Collectively these panoramas form a remarkable portrait of America at the turn of the last century."

American Photography
Paperback      ISBN: 0192842714

150 years of American photography come alive in this exciting new book, placing it in its cultural context for the first time. Orvell examines this fascinating subject through a wide range of well known and less-well known images. He ranges from portraiture and landscape photography, family albums and memory, and analyses the particularly 'American' way in which American photographers have viewed the world around them.
Orvell combines a clear overview of the changing nature of photographic thinking and practice in this period with an exploration of key concepts. The result is the first coherent history of American photography, which examines issues such as the nature of photographic exploitation, experimental techniques, the power of the photograph to shock, and whether we should subscribe to the notion of a visual history.

Animals in Photographs
Animals in Photographs
Hardcover      ISBN: 160606441x

From the invention of photography up through the internet age, animals have been a frequent subject of the camera's lens, from portraits of beloved pets and exotic creatures to the documentation of human cruelty against them. Drawing on the collection of the J. Paul Getty Museum, this book traces the relationship between animals in photographs and the rapidly advancing technology of photography. From the wild dogs of South Africa to William Wegman's photogenic Weimaraners, from images of Victorian zoos to visions of the heavy toll of game hunting, animals on film are moving, sympathetic, and sometimes tragic figures.

In this vivid and engaging book, Arpad Kovacs explores the social, symbolic, scientific, and aesthetic approaches to a subject that has been of continuous interest to photographers across the centuries. Over ninety full-color plates represent image makers ranging from Felice Beato, Eadweard Muybridge, Andr Kert sz, and Alfred Stieglitz to Berenice Abbott, Manuel lvarez Bravo, and Man Ray. More recent photographers, such as Robert Mapplethorpe and Hiroshi Sugimoto, are represented along with contemporary artists, such as Tim Hawkinson, Pieter Hugo, and Graciela Iturbide. The result is a book that shows the evolution of a photographic obsession that abides to this day.

This book is published on the occasion of the exhibition In Focus: Animalia, on view at the J. Paul Getty Museum from May 26 to October 18, 2015.

Build and Connect
Hardcover      ISBN: 9058566145

-Presents the art collection of the University of Antwerp In recent decades, the University of Antwerp has brought together a unique collection of visual art of Belgian and international origin and style. With great care, these works of art are given a specific, selected and discussed place in and around the buildings on the various university campuses. Students, professors, research and supporting staff are thus connected to fragments from the collection in their daily work environment. The percentage rule for art integration is also consistently applied to newly constructed buildings. Recently, a scaled history of Belgian art since 1950 has been added, spanning over a hundred museum 'rooms' to scale 1/7. This book deals thematically and visually with the many interactions between architecture, visual art, residents and passers-by. Sophisticated and subtle photography underlines the many possible connections that come about. The width and depth of Art on Campus is presented by means of about forty spatial situations.
