Описание: The international public's fascination with St Petersburg seemingly attained its zenith in May 2003, when the city celebrated its tricentenary - but it is bound to reach new heights. The photographer Olaf Martens has focused on it for some years now - continually redesigning, seeking and inventing his perspective on it. Masks & Facades reveals this perfectionist's excitingly broad range. Precisely constructed pictorial universes which nonetheless ironically question the assumptions of the city with all its beauty, brilliance and arrogantly staged bid for metropolitan status - which would evade the grasp of the specialist limited to fashion, erotic or human-interest photography. 'To realize a picture rather than make a copy is the aim in this approach,' as Klaus Honnef, an art historian, puts it in his contribution to this book. The photographer has succeeded in 'even integrating the unforeseeable in his calculations'. In the pictorial universe that is Martens's St Petersburg everything is beautiful and picturesque in an artificial way. Viewers only notice that something isn't quite right after subjecting it to closer scrutiny.' Like the photographer who has found his inspiration in this magnificent metropolis, they are sure to succumb to the 'ceaseless oscillation between appearances and reality' representing a 'symbiosis of exuberant lust for life, exaggerated artificiality and whitewashed decay' that is St Petersburg.

Описание: The elaborate masks worn by dancers in the "Ramayana" drama are an enduring symbol of Thai culture and have been produced since the late-18th century. This volume ties the masks to the less well-known Thai puppets dating back to the 11th century and shows their role in Thai culture.
Описание: In the Mexican states of Puebla and Veracruz, old masked dances have survived in isolated mountain regions. These dances include wonderful masks of humans and animals, masks with beautiful, comic, or wicked faces. Created by Indigenous master carvers, mascareros, these masks and puppets appear during religious fiestas. Over 700 vivid color photos reveal these masks and puppets in all their glory. The thoroughly researched text answers the questions about who made these beautiful works of art, who these dance characters are, and the nature of the religion they represent. The Spanish conquerors strove to convert the Indian inhabitants of Mexico to Christianity. However, these converts secretly retained important deities from earlier times to accompany Christian elements, creating a poetic blend of beliefs. Given that these indigenous peoples have suffered many injustices, the masks, puppets, and dance dramas reflect many unresolved societal tensions along with veiled wishes for divine justice.
