Okładka książki Bauhaus Girls
Bauhaus Girls
Wydawca: TASCHEN
wysyłka: 48h
Celebrating the centennial of a groundbreaking School of Art and Design, this volume marks the founding of the Bauhaus with a visual exploration of its most underrated members. While the institution provided women with new opportunities in education, along the way, they were faced with unreasonable family expectations, the ambiguous attitude of the faculty and administration, outdated social conventions, and, ultimately, the political repression of the Nazi regime. Unprecedented in current literature, Bauhausmädels presents 87 artists and artisans through texts and photographic portraits, many published for the very first time. Recent archival discoveries revive the biographies of better-known talents. In the 1920s, the title “Bauhaus girl” expressed a silent admiration for the young women who courageously eluded traditional gender roles to build a different, creative future. These include Marianne Brandt, the first woman to be admitted to the Bauhaus metalworking program whose designs are used by Alessi to this day; Gertrud Arndt who, dissuaded by the faculty from studying architecture, instead shone through her photography and rug design; and Lucia Moholy, who photographed the Bauhaus buildings in iconic shots, but spent the rest of her life trying to retrieve the negatives which were withheld from her. Moreover, the volume reminds us of other women artists whose names, nearly forgotten, also stand for early pioneers of gender equality, refusing to follow the beaten tracks society and their families insisted on. With almost 400 portrait photographs taken between 1919 and 1933, Bauhausmädels creates a visual impression of the women artists who attended the most progressive art school of the 20th century and, departing from there, often changed the world of art, architecture, design, and even politics. Biographical data sheds light on each artist’s individual struggle, persistence in the face of adversity, and incredible accomplishments. In this grand family album, we discover a group of unique trailblazers whose legacy paved the way for women artists after them.

Okładka książki Alfred Stieglitz. Camera Work
Photographer, writer, publisher, and curator Alfred Stieglitz (1864-1946) was a visionary far ahead of his time. Around the turn of the 20th century, he founded the Photo-Secession, a progressive movement concerned with advancing the creative possibilities of photography, and by 1903 began publishing Camera Work, an avant-garde magazine devoted to voicing the ideas, both in images and words, of the Photo-Secession. Camera Work was the first photo journal whose focus was visual, rather than technical, and its illustrations were of the highest quality hand-pulled photogravure printed on Japanese tissue. This book brings together all photographs from the journal's 50 issues.

Okładka książki Male Nude
Male Nude
Autor: Leddick David
Wydawca: TASCHEN
wysyłka: 48h
While the female nude has long played a conspicuous role in western iconography, the male nude has not always enjoyed such attention, or acceptance. This ode to the male physique celebrates the evolving, at one time illicit, art form from anonymous 19th century erotica through to contemporary work from David Hockney and Duane Michaels. Through the classic, the playful, and the provocative, it explores the compositions, postures, and role-playing of this often under-explored genre. Esteemed masters such as Herbert List, George Platt Lynes or Robert Mapplethorpe are all there, alongside Baron Wilhelm von Gloeden, famed for his homoerotic images of nude youths in classical postures in Sicily. Further highlights include illustrations from Physique Pictorial, the leading organ of the mid-50s gay scene and a pioneer in gay publishing.

Okładka książki Terry Richardson 1-2 Portraits Fashion
This first full-career monograph, featuring two decades of iconic fashion and celebrity editorial photographs, reveals the enormous influence and impact that Richardson has made on contemporary style, culture, and photography. Since Terry Richardson first rose to prominence in the 1990s, he has shocked and intrigued the world with his singular view and signature style of bold lighting, hypersexualized styling, and striking, off-kilter glamour. From glossy, high-end fashion photographs to raw in-studio portraits, Richardson’s work has had an unmistakable impact on contemporary visual culture. This much-anticipated monograph is the first to cover Richardson’s complete career to date. It chronicles more than twenty years of photographs, advertising campaigns, and editorial work, revealing the evolution of Richardson’s style, an unexpected mix of glamour and rawness. This two-volume set, which is separated into Richardson’s fashion photography and celebrity portraiture, features more than 600 photographs and includes early, rarely seen magazine work from now-defunct publications; iconic and influential work for magazines such as Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, The Face, i-D, Vice, and Interview; advertising work for brands such as Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent, Chloé, and A.P.C.; and very intimate studio portraits. This compilation is an intriguing look at the mark Richardson’s work has made on fashion, photography, and pop culture, and it captures his edgy, provocative style in a book that is as unusual and unforgettable as the photographer himself.

Richard Avedon: Performance
Wydawca: Abrams

"We all perform. It's what we do for each other all the time, deliberately or unintentionally. It's a way of telling about ourselves in the hope of being recognized as what we'd like to be." --Richard Avedon, 1974 The preeminent stars and artists of the performing arts from the second half of the 20th century offered their greatest gifts—and, sometimes, their inner lives—to Richard Avedon. More than 200 are portrayed in Performance, many in photographs that have been rarely or never seen before. Of course, the great stars light the way: Hepburn and Chaplin, Monroe and Garland, Brando and Sinatra. But here too are the actors and comedians, pop stars and divas, musicians and dancers, artists in all mediums with public lives that were essentially performances, who stand at the pinnacle of our cultural achievement.

Opakowanie Xu Yong Negatives
A survivor's account of the Tiananmem Square massacre, told through photographs taken at the event. The colours of the photographs have been inverted to create a more interactive and thought-provoking experience Inspired by the reform movements in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, student protests began to form in China in the spring of 1989. They made Tiananmen square their central meeting place. Unsettled by this public display of dissent, on 3 and 4 June the Chinese army violently crushed the protests. There are no official figures for the number of victims. 2600 people are estimated to have been killed, and 7000 injured. The photographer Xu Yong, aged 35 at the time, was among the survivors. He captured the chaotic scenes on celluloid. In 2014, he published his photos in a book that was banned by the board of censors. This new edition, published by Verlag Kettler, makes the book available to the public. Xu has not retouched the photographs. He reproduces the negatives with inverted colours, which can only be deciphered once the color inversion function on mobile phones or tablets is activated. Consequently, his work represents an eerie yet authentic perspective on this watershed moment in Chinese history.

Opakowanie Captain Linnaeus Tripe
Captain Linnaeus Tripe
Wydawca: Hardcover
wysyłka: 48h
This is the first major traveling exhibition devoted to the British photographer Captain Linnaeus Tripe (1822–1902). Between 1854 and 1860, Tripe produced an unprecedented series of photographs documenting the landscape and cultural artifacts of south India and Burma (now the Republic of Myanmar). With few models to follow, he developed a professional practice under the auspices of the British East India Company, the commercial enterprise governing the region as Great Britain's imperial agent. As an officer in the British army, he traveled with diplomatic expeditions, creating a visual inventory of celebrated archaeological sites and monuments, religious and secular buildings—some now destroyed—as well as geological formations and scenic vistas. His training as a military surveyor, where the choice of viewpoint and careful attention to visual details were essential, gave his photographs a striking aesthetic rigor that distinguishes them from the picturesque travel views characteristic of the period. 102 color illustrations

Okładka książki New York in the 1970s
The luminous and compelling photographs in New York in the 1970s capture the essence of a city in a way best described as “place portraiture.” Trager’s images present the architecture of Manhattan with time-defiant clarity and beauty. Although Trager selected his subjects for aesthetic and visual reasons-rather than from an historical or documentary point of view-with the passage of time his distinctly imaginative photographs have also acquired value as historical documents. The negatives for the images in this book, only recently rediscovered, had originally been archived for printing but Trager began other projects before any prints were made. The photographs in New York in the 1970s were taken at the same time as Trager’s timeless Philip Trager: New York, published by Wesleyan University Press in 1980, in which the photographer depicts the city “as a solitary figure, always aware of the ‘enveloping sky’.” New York in the 1970s reveals Trager’s more concentrated attention to the interaction between the city’s architecture and the dynamics of the street.

Okładka książki Sante Dorazio Polaroids
Sante D’Orazio, Italoamerikaner aus Brooklyn, ist einer der bedeutendsten Fashion- und Beautyphotographen unserer Tage. Schirmer/Mosel-Fans kennen sein Werk bereits aus den beiden Büchern A Private View und Pamela Anderson – American Icon und wissen, dass sich die schönsten Frauen des amerikanischen Showbusiness gern und völlig unbefangen vor seinem Kamerablick in Szene setzen. Alle diese Photos sind in der Regel zur Veröffentlichung in Magazinen bestimmt, manche sind freizügig, manche diskreterer Natur. Gemeinsam ist ihnen immer die Verehrung für einen schönen, (fast) makellosen Körper und ein ebenso schönes Gesicht. Nun hat Sante D’Orazio in seine Schatzkiste gegriffen und eine Anzahl seiner Polaroids zur Veröffentlichung freigegeben. Sie gehen fast immer den Auftragsphotographien voraus, pendeln noch zwischen Photograph und Modell, bevor es sozusagen „ernst“ wird. In dieser spielerischen Qualität suchen sie ihresgleichen und steigern den erotisch-voyeuristischen Moment noch einmal durch ihre Intimität.
