Widely acknowledged as the world’s leading authority on Edward Curtis, author Christopher Cardozo has curated a groundbreaking monograph on internationally renowned photographer Edward Curtis. Curtis’s magnum opus, "The North American Indian", the most extensive photographic portrait of Native Americans, is a crucial contribution to the history of America’s Native peoples as well as a testament to his tireless efforts to document and express the spirit of over eighty distinct tribal groups. In this book Cardozo selected from an unmatched private archive of rare and unique Curtis original, vintage photographs. Never before have Curtis’s finest photographs been presented with such fidelity and power in book form. Every style, subject matter, cultural and geographic area, and print medium Curtis worked in is included. The stunning photographs are further enriched and contextualized by essays from world-recognized experts. Creating a unique visual mosaic, the photographs give the viewer a deep, rich understanding of Curtis’s accomplishments as an artist, while exploring the crucial role the Native American participants played in co-creating this iconic body of work.

Описание: The 20th century was remarkably fertile ground for residential architecture in the US, producing such icons of modern building as the Greene brothers' Gamble House in Pasadena (1908), Eliel Saarinen's 1929 residence at the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, and Michael Graves' neo-classical villa in New Jersey. These are among the 21 masterpieces of American 20th-century residential architecture presented in this illustrated volume, a condensed edition of this previously published title. Colour photographs are accompanied by a text that explores each house in depth and discusses its place in the progression of American architecture, its role in the architect's oeuvre and its broader relationship to the history of 20th-century American cultural movements.

Описание: Karl Blossfeldt (1865–1932) was a great pioneer of botanical photography, yet he was neither a professional photographer nor a botanist. A professor at the Academy of Applied Arts in Berlin, he was a sculptor and amateur photographer, and his interest in the plant world was originally educational. Fascinated by the structure of plants, whose apparently artistic forms were created by biological expediency, he realized that photography could be a useful teaching tool, allowing his students to see and compare many natural forms. Blossfeldt worked with a homemade camera and gathered and photographed his own plant samples, magnifying them by up to 45 times. From around 1898 onwards, he shot some 6,000 images, which he used primarily as visual aids in his classes. Eventually published as Art Forms in Nature (1928) and Art Forms in Nature, Second Series (1932), his photographs had a lasting impact on the art of his day and were enthusiastically embraced by both the Surrealists and the New Objectivity movement. His books brought him overnight fame and are still considered landmarks in the history of art and photography. This volume brings together a remarkable collection of Blossfeldt’s strikingly austere yet poetic portraits of plants, capturing their timeless beauty in intimate detail.
