Found in Brooklyn
Hardcover ISBN: 0393039536
Roma's photographs pay homage to the diverse, expansive, and truly unique place that is Brooklyn. Brooklyn is often thought of as a world of its own. For the photographer Thomas Roma, Brooklyn is the place of his boyhood, a place of lush gardens and expanses of white cement, of the merging of old country and new world. In these photographs, made over a period of twenty years, Roma finds images of the neighborhoods that shaped him. Roma is a rare photographer who, without resorting to technical gimmicks, offers us pure photography. He looks directly into the mundane and from it creates poetry, mystery, and surprise. An old man sits in his undershirt surrounded by the flowering beauty he has created. A boy lies on an overpass, dreaming, as cars rush beneath him. Roma's pictures take us through streets and passages, abandoned lots and backyards, to give us glimpses of Brooklyn that are at turns amusing, forlorn, stunning, and surreal.

West from the Columbia
Views at the River Mouth
Hardcover ISBN: 0893816426
West from the Columbia is an essay in photographs about the meeting of a great river and the sea. The book is at once a celebration of beauty at the ocean's edge and a meditation on our relationship with it. In the pictures the sea mirrors every condition through which our lives pass- fresh mornings, calm days, fogs, storms, and night-- and as in life, little is explained. Driftwood next to our feet is as mysterious as is the ship on the horizon. Lewis and Clark arrived here, the farthest point in their exploration, in 1805. Report of their journey was instrumental in opening the American West for development. Since then we have destroyed large and diverse forests that once stood along the Columbia, and polluted the river with waste from cities, paper mills, and the Hanford Nuclear Reservation. Though we now know that even the sea itself is finite-- nothing can be hidden-- we continue to look for hope at the ocean's shore. Might we be embraced, like the river, by so perfect a light? Robert Adams is fond of an entry in one of Theodore Roethke's journals-- "I see what I believe."

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.
