Описание: Photographs have the power to reveal, to condemn, to celerbrate and to catalyze. How that power has been used and abused is the subject of this book.
Photography has created a communal memory bank, shared by all the citizens of the world with access to newspapers, books and magazines.
From the first X-ray to the first
view of earth from space, photographic images have made a difference in how we perceive our world. Governments have used photographs to spy on their citizens, and citizens have
used photographs to reform their governments. Photographs of the concentration camps and the My Lai massacre have made the unbelievable undeniable.
have reinforced fame - Betty Grable as pin-up and Marilyn Monroe as a sex goddess. Photographs have achieved their own status as icons - the raising of the flag in Iwo Jima, the
mushroom cloud of the atom bomb, the revolutionary portraits of Chairman Mao and Che Guevara. Photographs can also lie, as they have from the beginning and continue to do with
ever greater ease as technology progresses.
The significance of these images in particular and of photography in general is examined by Vicki Goldberg.
Описание: It's remarkable to consider that not "that" long ago, a good chunk of American commerce was carried out by huge steam-powered leviathans. Even as the Interstate and jet engines were revolutionizing the way people traveled and shipped goods, steam locomotives continued to toil across North American rails. Of course, steam locomotives weren't long for this world. Today, they may be mostly gone, but they're far from forgotten--railfan interest in steam power remains keen. In "The Twilight of Steam," acclaimed rail author and photographer Brian Solomon gathers some of the greatest black-and-white photography from well-known rail photographers who were plying their trade trackside in the years when steam was fading from the rail scene. Gorgeous large-format images show famed steam locomotive types at work and at rest all over the U.S. and Canada. From the high plains to mountain passes, from city stations to scrapyards, these evocative images capture an historical era of railroading. To add context, the photographs are accompanied by the recollections of many of the photographers represented, while detailed captions provide information about the locomotives and scenes pictured. While successful monographs have previously presented the work of acclaimed rail photographers, none have provided a survey representing a range of operations and regions quite like this collection. "The Twilight of Steam" is an essential addition to the bookshelf of any serious railfan.

Описание: In the midst of the Great Depression, the American government initiated one of the most ambitious national photographic projects ever undertaken. Such photographers as Dorothea Lange, Walker Evans, and Gordon Parks-all then virtually unknown-were commissioned to chronicle in pictures the economic struggle and social dislocation of the Depression era. They explored every facet of rural life in an effort to document the troubles, as well as the spirit, of the nation. Fanning out across the country, these photographers captured a nation alive with religious faith-from Dust Bowl migrants singing hymns to orthodox Jews praying in rural Connecticut. In Picturing Faith, the preeminent historian of religion Colleen McDannell recounts the history of this extraordinary project, telling the stories of the men and women who participated in it and exploring these little-known images of America. Lavishly illustrated, Picturing Faith teases out the various and conflicting ways that these photographers portrayed American religion and enhances our understanding of how religion was practiced during this critical period of American history.
