    From the late 1940s on, Wallace W. Abbey masterfully combined journalistic and artistic vision to transform everyday moments in transportation into magical photographs. Abbey, a photographer, journalist, historian, and railroad industry executive, helped people from many different backgrounds understand and appreciate what was often taken for granted: a world of locomotives, passenger trains, big-city terminals, small-town depots, and railroaders. During his lifetime he witnessed and photographed sweeping changes in the railroading industry from the steam era to the era of diesel locomotives and electronic communication. Wallace W. Abbey: A Life in Railroad Photography profiles the life and work of this legendary photographer and showcases the transformation of transportation and photography after World War II. Featuring more than 175 exquisite photographs in an oversized format, Wallace W. Abbey is an outstanding tribute to a gifted artist and the railroads he loved.

    TR 140 R295 A3 2018eb

    In his travels around the globe, National Geographic photojournalist Steve Raymer has often been the first on the scene, recording unfolding events and revealing the connections that tie us together. Raymer's photography captures the magic of beautiful vistas, the joys and struggles of everyday people living everyday lives, and the chaos brought on by natural disasters. Beyond documenting tragedies like the devastating famines in Bangladesh and Ethiopia and exposing the massive corruption crippling the Trans-Alaska Pipeline, his work tells a complex and wide-ranging story about life and human nature. Now, for the first time, Somewhere West of Lonely reveals the stories behind the camera lens in a gorgeous, intimate tour of Steve Raymer's remarkable life and reporting. Bringing together 150 photographs from countries across the globe, this incredible book reveals our world and time as it is--everyday people caught up in life-changing events; acts of resilience and corruption; and, always, lingering moments of transcendence and beauty.


  • Sutures and Spirits : Lejaren Hiller’s Photographic Illustrations / Doug Manchee
    TR 690.4 M36 2017eb

  • The Zoom : Drama at the Touch of a Lever / Nick Hall
    TR 858 H359 2018eb
    From the queasy zooms in Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo to the avant-garde mystery of Michael Snow's Wavelength , from the excitement of televised baseball to the drama of the political convention, the zoom shot is instantly recognizable and highly controversial. In The Zoom , Nick Hall traces the century-spanning history of the zoom lens in American film and television. From late 1920s silent features to the psychedelic experiments of the 1960s and beyond, the book describes how inventors battled to provide film and television studios with practical zoom lenses, and how cinematographers clashed over the right ways to use the new zooms. Hall demonstrates how the zoom brought life and energy to cinema decades before the zoom boom of the 1970s and reveals how the zoom continues to play a vital and often overlooked role in the production of contemporary film and television.

  • Photography and other media in the nineteenth century / edited by Nicoletta Leonardi and Simone Natale
    TR 15 P4795 2018

    In this volume, leading scholars of photography and media examine photography's vital role in the evolution of media and communication in the nineteenth century.

    In the first half of the nineteenth century, the introduction of telegraphy, the development of a cheaper and more reliable postal service, the rise of the mass-circulation press, and the emergence of the railway dramatically changed the way people communicated and experienced time and space. Concurrently, photography developed as a medium that changed how images were produced and circulated. Yet, for the most part, photography of the era is studied outside the field of media history. The contributors to this volume challenge those established disciplinary boundaries as they programmatically explore the intersections of photography and "new media" during a period of fast-paced change. Their essays look at the emergence and early history of photography in the context of broader changes in the history of communications; the role of the nascent photographic press in photography's infancy; and the development of photographic techniques as part of a broader media culture that included the mass-consumed novel, sound recording, and cinema.

    Featuring essays by noteworthy historians in photography and media history, this discipline-shifting examination of the communication revolution of the nineteenth century is an essential addition to the field of media studies.

    In addition to the editors, contributors to this volume are Geoffrey Batchen, Geoffrey Belknap, Lynn Berger, Jan von Brevern, Anthony Enns, André Gaudreault, Lisa Gitelman, David Henkin, Erkki Huhtamo, Philippe Marion, Peppino Ortoleva, Steffen Siegel, Richard Taws, and Kim Timby.

  • India : contemporary photographic and new media art / conceived and edited by Steven Evans, Sunil Gupta ; introduction, Steven Evans ; essays, Zahid R. Chaudhary, Sunil Gupta, Nada Raza, Gayatri Sinha
    TR 645 H8 I53 2018
    INDIA: Contemporary Photographic and New Media Art will present 48 contemporary artists and collectives working in dialogue with the long history and emergent future of India and its people. The book will focus on the contemporary moment, and a range of approaches will be included, including art photography, contemporary practices, installation, moving image, journalistic and documentary photography. Themes include caste and class, the partitioning of the sub-continent, gender and sexuality, conflict, religion, nationalism, new technologies and developments, the environment, human settlement, and migration."As a large, multilingual subcontinent, India has always relied on images to maintain a cohesive whole across myriad subcultures, regions, castes and languages. The introduction of photomechanical imaging in the nineteenth century enabled the rapid reproduction and dissemination of both spiritual and scientific ideals," states author and editor Sunil Gupta, continuing, "Photography for most of its history was too expensive and technical and was left in the hands of 'experts' -- until the birth of digital technologies. The book will address the legacy of the last twenty years, a period when photography and moving image media have been consistently included within critical exhibitions of fine art."INDIA: Contemporary Photographic and New Media Art is edited by Steven Evans, curator and FotoFest Executive Director and Sunil Gupta, Delhi-born artist and curator. The book is introduced by Steven Evans and includes essays from experts on the region and contemporary art: Zahid R. Chaudhary, Sunil Gupta and Gayatri Sinha.

  • Skills for engineering and built environment students : university to career / John W. Davies
    TR 65 D285 2016
    There are a lot of important skills needed for a career in engineering. As well as academic skills, future engineers need to be able to present data, work in project teams, carry out experiments, problem solve and write reports. This book emphasises the importance of these core skills, and supports engineering students as they successfully navigate their courses and move forward into a career of ongoing development.

    Written in a friendly and encouraging style, Skills for engineering and built environment students:
    * Provides guidance on both the study and the professional practice of engineering
    * Addresses common worries and pitfalls, debunking myths and demystifying jargon
    * Helps with milestones such as group projects, presentations, work placements and job interviews

    Supported by interviews with students, lecturers, young engineers and employers, Skills for engineering and built environment students guides students and early-career professionals through an important transition stage, thoroughly preparing them for the world of work.
