  • Towards a philosophy of photography / Vilém Flusser
    TR 183 F5713 2000
    Media philosopher Vilém Flusser proposed a revolutionary new way of thinking about photography. An analysis of the medium in terms of aesthetics, science and politics provided him with new ways of understanding both the cultural crises of the past and the new social forms nascent within them. Flusser showed how the transformation of textual into visual culture (from the linearity of history into the two-dimensionality of magic) and of industrial into post-industrial society (from work into leisure) went hand in hand, and how photography allows us to read and interpret these changes with particular clarity.

  • Stan Douglas : every building on 100 West Hastings / edited by Reid Shier
    TR 661 D68 2002
    The 100 block of Vancouver's West Hastings Street is the gateway to one of the most contested and controversial inner-city neighbourhoods in North America - Vancouber's unfamous and impoverished Dowtown Eastside. The decline of the area is a subject of ongoing debate, and is often spoken of in tandem with the numerous social problems of its residents. Surprisingly, a link between the geography of the Downtown Eastside and a shifting consensus of those deemed socially marginal has been a consistent theme in Vancouver since the city's inception over a century ago.

  • Foto : modernity in Central Europe, 1918-1945 / Matthew S. Witkovsky ; with an introduction by Peter Demetz
    TR 653 W58 2007
    A brilliantly illustrated survey of modernist photography in Central Europe, published in association with the National Gallery of Art. In the 1920s and 1930s, photography became an immense phenomenon across Germany, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Austria, and Poland. Through magazines and books, in advertisements and at exhibitions, from amateur clubs to avant-garde schools, photographs emerged as a key vehicle of modern consciousness. This book and the exhibition it accompanies present the work of approximately one hundred individuals whose creations exemplify the potential of photography in Central Europe between the two World Wars. Foto brings together for the first time works by recognized masters such as the Russian El Lissitzky, the Hungarian Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, and the German Hannah Hoch--all of whom developed their photographic ideas in Germany--with contemporaries like Karel Teige and Jaromr Funke (Czechoslovakia), Kazimierz Podsadecki (Poland), Karoly Escher (Hungary), and Trude Fleischmann (Austria), who are less well known today. Organized thematically, the book explores topics from photomontage and war to gender identity, modern living, and the spread of Surrealism. It shows the shared experience of modernity in the region, whereby recently founded nations and dismantled empires alike sought their place within the new world order established in the aftermath of World War I. The illustrations, drawn from more than seventy collections in America and abroad, include several previously unpublished works as well as many others never before available in high-quality reproductions. 230 illustrations in color, tritone, & duotone.

  • Color grading 101 : getting started color grading for editors, cinematographers, directors, and aspiring colorists / Charles Haine
    TR 899 H35 2020eb

    Written both for students and working professionals, this book walks readers step-by-step through the foundations of color grading for projects of any size, from music videos and commercials to full-length features.

    In this clear, practical, and software-agnostic guide, author Charles Haine introduces readers to the technical and artistic side of color grading and color correction. Color Grading 101 balances technical chapters like color-matching, mastering, and compression with artistic chapters like contrast/affinity, aesthetic trends, and building a color plan . The book also includes more business-focused chapters detailing best practices and expert advice on working with clients, managing a team, working with VFX, and building a business. An accompanying eResource offers downloadable footage and project files to help readers work through the exercises and examples in the book.

    This book serves as a perfect introduction for aspiring colorists as well as editors, cinematographers, and directors looking to familiarize themselves with the color grading process.

  • Decolonising the camera : photography in racial time / Mark Sealy
    TR 183 S43 2019

  • Photography theory / edited by James Elkins
    TR 185 P55 2007eb

    Photography Theory presents forty of the world's most active art historians and theorists, including Victor Burgin, Joel Snyder, Rosalind Krauss, Alan Trachtenberg, Geoffrey Batchen, Carol Squiers, Margaret Iversen and Abigail Solomon-Godeau in animated debate on the nature of photography.

    Photography has been around for nearly two centuries, but we are no closer to understanding what it is. For some people, a photograph is an optically accurate impression of the world, for others, it is mainly a way of remembering people and places. Some view it as a sign of bourgeois life, a kind of addiction of the middle class, whilst others see it as a troublesome interloper that has confused people's ideas of reality and fine art to the point that they have difficulty even defining what a photograph is. For some, the whole question of finding photography's nature is itself misguided from the beginning.

    This provocative second volume in the Routledge The Art Seminar series presents not one but many answers to the question what makes a photograph a photograph?

  • Paper promises : early American photography / Mazie M. Harris ; with contributions by Matthew Fox-Amato and Christine Hult-Lewis
    TR 23 H37 2018
    Scholarship on photography's earliest years has tended to focus on daguerreotypes on metal or on the European development of paper photographs made from glass or paper negatives. But Americans also experimented with negative-positive processes to produce photographic images on a variety of paper formats in the early decades of the medium. Paper Promises: Early American Photography presents this rarely studied topic within photographic history.

    The well-researched and richly detailed texts in this book delve into the complexities of early paper photography in the United States from the 1840s to 1860s, bringing to light a little-known era of American photographic appropriation and adaptation. Exploring the economic, political, intellectual, and social factors that impacted its unique evolution, both the essays and the carefully selected images illustrate the importance of photographic reproduction in shaping and circulating perceptions of America and its people during a critical period of political tension and territorial expansion.

    Due to the fragility of paper photography from this period, the works in this catalogue are rarely displayed, making the volume an essential tool for any scholar in the field and a very rare peek into the mid-nineteenth century.

  • Berenice Abbott : a life in photography / Julia Van Haaften
    TR 140 A25V36 2018

    Berenice Abbott is to American photography what Georgia O'Keeffe is to painting or Willa Cather to letters. Abbott's sixty-year career established her not only as a master of American photography but also as a teacher, writer, archivist and inventor.

    A teenage rebel from Ohio, Abbott escaped to Paris--photographing, in Sylvia Beach's words, "everyone who was anyone"--before returning to New York as the Roaring Twenties ended. Abbott's best known work, "Changing New York", documented the city's 1930s metamorphosis. She then turned to science as a subject, culminating in work important to the 1950s "space race". This biography secures Abbott's place in the histories of photography and modern art while framing her accomplishments as a female artist and entrepreneur.

  • The street philosophy of Garry Winogrand / Geoff Dyer
    TR 140 W584D94 2018

    Garry Winogrand--along with Diane Arbus and Lee Friedlander--was one of the most important photographers of the 1960s and 1970s, as well as one of the world's foremost street photographers. Award-winning writer Geoff Dyer has admired Winogrand's work for many years. Modeled on John Szarkowski's classic book Atget, The Street Philosophy of Garry Winogrand is a masterfully curated selection of one hundred photographs from the Winogrand archive at the Center for Creative Photography, with each image accompanied by an original essay.

    Dyer takes the viewer/reader on a wildly original journey through both iconic and unseen images from the archive, including eighteen previously unpublished color photographs. The book encompasses most of Winogrand's themes and subjects and remains broadly faithful to the chronological and geographical facts of his life, but Dyer's responses to the photographs are unorthodox, eye-opening, and often hilarious. This inimitable combination of photographer and writer, images and text, itself offers what Dyer claims for Winogrand's photography--an education in seeing.

  • Nan Goldin / Guido Costa
    TR 680 C66 2001
    This volume - investigating the work of a particular photographer, in this case, Nan Goldin - comprises a 4000-word essay by an expert in the field, 55 photographs presented chronologically, each with a commentary, and a biography of the featured photographer.

  • Recollecting landscapes : rephotography, memory and transformation, 1904-1980-2004-2014 / Bruno Notteboom & Pieter Uyttenhove (eds.) ; authors, Bruno Notteboom [and six others] ; with a contribution by Mark Klett
    TR 660.5 R436 2018

  • Are photographs truthful? : whence veracity? / by Michael Shapter
    TR 183 S53 2018
    For decades, people have made certain assumptions about photographs, the primary one being that they are truthful in depicting reality. While this is true in many cases, it is not always so. This book traces the rise of photography's perceived veracity. It shows why a combination of pre-knowledge of early developments in imagery, a persistent marketing campaign espousing the accuracy of photographs and a perception by users that what they got from their photographs was an accurate depiction acted to create the belief in the photograph's veracity. The book uses philosophy, physiology, psychology and photography to tell this story and concludes by describing a system of identification that could be used to separate images that are not always what they seem. The turbulence caused to photography with the introduction of digital imaging is described and is the impetus for the beginning of the discussion about where photography sits today amongst other images.
