In 120 black-and-white images, Minnesota in Our Time: A Photographic Portrait showcases the work of twelve talented photographers who sought to capture the essence of the state and its people at the threshold of the new millennium.

This work is a product of the Minnesota 2000 Photo Documentation Project, a three-year effort that has also produced an archival collection of 360 images and a museum exhibition. The project's wealth of images provides a multifaceted look at lives and landscapes in Minnesota, focusing on common experiences and themes among a diverse population of individuals.

In 1993 Gabriel Orozco removed a lengthwise section of a Citroen DS and reconnected the two sides, making the car's fleet form look lighter yet. Orozco continues his experimentations with perceptions of gravity and weight in Photogravity, his latest installation at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Here, photographs of pre-Columbian sculptures from the museum's Louise and Walter Arensberg Collection, mounted and backed by stands, share gallery space with photographs of Orozco's own pieces. Orozco homogenizes and juxtaposes photography and sculpture - each endowed with properties of the other - and in doing so creates unexpected visual relationships and invites dialogue between the two mediums. Published on the occasion of the exhibition in Philadelphia, this book also presents the visually unexpected, creating a colorful combination of writings and collages from the artist's notebooks, his photographs and sculptures, and the Arensbergs' pre-Columbian works.

Photographs of the Human Form
Paperback ISBN: 0811807622
The sensual curve of the shoulder, the disturbing line of a scar, the magnetic pull of a lashed eye -- since the birth of photography, images of the human body have attracted, disturbed, fascinated, and obsessed us. The body has been scrutinized by medical and anatomical photographers; it has been celebrated by photographers of sport and dance; it has inspired a long tradition of photographing the nude; and it has been depicted in phantasmagoric terms. In this rich, involving archive of over 360 duotone and color images culled from worldwide collections, renowned photo curator William A. Ewing has compiled the most comprehensive and arresting visual survey ever published of the human form. From nineteenth-century erotica to the politicized images of the 1990s, The Body offers an exciting, elegantly packaged, provocative record of the camera's infatuation with the human figure.
