Under Antarctic Ice: The Photographs of Norbert Wu артикул 1881a.

The allure of Antarctica, a place still mysterious, untamed, and unspoiled, has beckoned tourists in increasing numbers as more and more people vie for a glimpse of its terrible beauty and stunning vistas But there is one aspect of Antarctica they never see, perhaps the most interesting of all--the world beneath the ice This book, a collection of оваид the finest photographs ever taken underwater in deep Antarctica, illuminates a world brimming with strange and beautiful life forms For the first time anywhere, Under Antarctic Ice brings together the stories, the science, and the natural beauty of one of earth's most vibrant and enchanting realms Internationally renowned photographer Norbert Wu was given unprecedented access to the icy waters off Antarctica by the U S National Science Foundation to obtain these dynamic photographs In the extreme conditions that prevail in these seas, invertebrates can grow to enormous sizes: sponges are as big as bears, jellyfish tentacles extend thirty feet, and giant sea spiders crawl through beds of soft coral Wu has also focused his lens on the birds and mammals living at the edge of water and ice We are humbled before mammoth icebergs, witness a killer whale stalking prey from a narrow crack in the ice, and see what penguins look like swimming underwater Jim Mastro's introductory text elegantly condenses forty years of scientific research into a clear and concise natural history of this unique place.  2004 г Твердый переплет, 176 стр ISBN 0520235045.

Picasso and the War Years, 1937-1945 артикул 1889a.

Book DescriptionArguably the most important artist of the twentieth century, Pablo Picasso has been the object of innumerable exhibitions and publications This absorbing book draws upon new research and works that, in some cases, were held out of publicview in Picasso's own collection to explore the critically important--but still under-studied--period оваиь of his life from the time of the Spanish Civil War through World War II and the Nazi occupation of France This span of years is marked by some of the most intensely personal and expressive work of his long and diverse career By the 1930s Picasso stood secure in his preeminence, a symbol of modernism and a model of inventiveness and self-renewal The darkening political situation in Europe, however, began to intrude into his world of creativity, and by 1935 new themes of unrest were emerging in his work With the outbreak of the civil war in Spain, political crisis became personal crisis, and the formerly autobiographical, even hermetic outlook in Picasso's art expanded to embrace a new political and social consciousness During this period of his life, the subjects he painted changed dramatically in direct response first to the horrors of war and then to the dangers and privations of life in occupied Paris, where he chose to remain until the Liberation While it is true, as Picasso himself stated, that he did not directly paint the events of war, except perhaps in the powerful mural Guernica, their presence is felt as a steady and oppressive theme through the use of personalized signs and symbols and a distinctive stylistic language It is a dark and moving pictorial record that finds parallels in depth of feeling and visual impact only in the war-related imagery of Picasso's great Spanish forerunner Francisco de Goya Through his own inward voyage, Picasso created a portrait of an era, witnessed firsthand from the position of a foreign "degenerate" artist living under Nazi surveillance The book traces Picasso's responses to the cataclysm of war as manifested in a lengthy series of figure paintings, still lifes, portraits, and cityscapes, amplified by photographs, letters, manuscripts, and illustrated books by the artist, drawn from collections all around the world At a time when many artists internationally are looking for languages to express social and political criticism, it is more instructive than ever to consider the give-and-take between art and history in Picasso's work With contributions by: Brigitte Baer, Michle Cone, Michael FitzGerald, Lydia Csat Gasman, Robert Rosenblum, Gertje Utley.  2004 г 256 стр ISBN 1577173317.

Jens F артикул 1888a.

"The Jens pictures began as an experiment To photograph a young boy in many of the positions that Andrew Wyeth painted the model Helga; to give someone another identity and photograph them through the transformation Working exclusively in a small town in Germany, I was also interested in the impulse of Americans like Henry James, to travel оваиы to Europe in search of a certain "privileged" landscape only in fact to insert an American inflection The work evolved into a kind of dance between the two models, between painting and photography, between the exacting detail of photography and all the nuances of sketches and drawings As a way of keeping track of all these images, I began to clip out the contact prints I liked and to paste them into a book The volume became something like a log or sketchbook, the antithesis of photography where the viewer sees only the finished and perfected photograph Here they see hundreds of attempts Each page compiles years' worth of shots, the same picture taken again and again over time The camera formats change; the boy's body changes; the light changes Levels of intimacy change The boy's sister is added as a substitute for Helga's daughter The boy grows further away from the soft curves of femininity yet closer in his comfort and collaboration " --Collier Schorr An earlier version of the work was shown at the Whitney Biennial 2002 and at The Warhol Museum in 2005 Signed and numbered edition of 1,000 copies Essay by Collier Schorr Interview with Jens F Slipcased, 9 5 x 11 in /96 pgs / Illustrated throughout.  2006 г Твердый переплет, 192 стр ISBN 3865211569.

Richard Misrach: Chronologies артикул 1890a.
Richard Misrach: Chronologies артикул 1890a.

Richard Misrach is among the most influential, prolific, and internationally recognized photographers working today Best known for his epic ongoing project, Desert Cantos--an extensive and unique photographic exploration of place--Misrach consistently addresses political and social issues through the adaptation of different photographic овайв strategies, even as he expands notions of traditional landscape practice, and builds a complex and poignant document of American culture His subjects have included manmade floods and fires, military bombing ranges, mass graves of dead animals, sublime night skies, and details of paintings housed in the museums of the Southwest In one recent series, On the Beach--which was inspired by Nevil Shute's postapocalyptic novel of the 1950s--Misrach's color photographs deal with the human figure seen at a distance on an unspecified beach or in the water, observed from an unsettling and difficult-to-identify point of view located high above Misrach's newest publication, Chronologies is a compelling study of the photographer's process over the past 30 years Stripped of their original context, the photographs--presented in chronological order--illuminate how the photographer thinks and works Through fits and starts, reiterations and detours, the work evolves and matures, weaving in and out of the series for which Misrach has become known Side-by-side, classic images and never-before-seen pictures flesh out the photographer's logic and complicate it at the same time Ultimately, Chronologies is about time: The span of thirty years, the importance of time in each photograph, the chronology of a life within its time, and the book itself as a timepiece [Misrach] offers a totally convincing sense of place--the Mohave, the California inlands, the Nevada deserts, over which he has roamed repeatedly His moment of perception is always the present, gritted in by sand ochres and limned by sage green, mauve, and blond hues often emerging into an exquisite bleached depth, though sometimes reddened by dusk or fires Misrach lives such moments to their sensory brim without standing on any ceremony He gives us the feeling that what happens out there in the nominal wild happens for him and to him quite in advance of being filtered through any memory of art --Max Kozloff American Art, National Museum of Art, Smithsonian Institution Clothbound, 15 x 12 in /280 pgs / 135 color.  2006 г Твердый переплет, 280 стр ISBN 1933045280.
