Book DescriptionSome people once boldly predicted that photography would displace painting altogether Others asked whether a photograph could be art in the first place As it turned out, these two forms of expression have had a stimulating effect on oneanother during their long years of coexistence The Image Regained illustrates, with works обююе by outstanding contemporary artists and photographers, the intensity and consequences of this exchange over the past twenty years Work by Amy Adler, Bernd & Hilla Becher, Rineke Dijkstra, Gilbert & George, Andreas Gursky, Amedeo Martegani, Elizabeth Peyton, Sigmar Polke, Gerhard Richter, Cindy Sherman, Thomas Struth, Jeff Wall, and others reveals that, more frequently than not, the encounter between painting and photography has rocked our very understanding of the image Painting, under the influence of photography, is now finding its way back from the abstract to the figurative, whereas photography, in the 80s, claimed for itself the traditional painterly themes of portraiture and landscape The breaking with conventional modes of perception has by now become programmatic Paintings, for instance, now explore the properties of photography--the effects of light and shadow as well as blurred outlines for simulating different foci--and are hung next to photographs that suggest a painterly mode of creation As varied as the artistic directions documented here may be, one commitment remains common: the endeavour to look long and close at our world, and to make the viewer stop and think Includes Marco Franciolli, Elio Grazioli, Amy Adler, Sigmar Polke, Jeff Wall, Thomas Struth, Gerhard Richter, Bernd & Hilla Becher, Elizabeth Peyton, Amedeo Martegani, Andreas Gursky, Rineke Dijkstra, Gilbert & George, Cindy Sherman, amongst others Essay by Elio Grazioli Introduction by Marco Franciolli Paperback, 9 84 x 11 in , 176 pages, 100 color illustrations. 2003 г 176 стр ISBN 3775712682.

Record Pictures: Photographs From The Archive Of The Institution Of Civil Engineers артикул 1504a.
Book DescriptionBefore the invention of photography, civil engineers employed topographic artists to record the progression of their projects Termed "record pictures," these illustrations followed the tradition of the Dutch topographical landscapes of the 17th century, combining the qualities of detail and clarity with the обююа objectivity of technical drawings As such, record pictures had a scientific rather than an artistic purpose, just as most photography did in its infancy Photographys prime value was historically regarded as its ability to make highly detailed, objective (and relatively inexpensive) records Industry was quick to harness the new medium to make record pictures Significantly, one of the founders of Britains Photographic Society was a leading civil engineer This original application gave rise to a genre of landscape photography that has not been properly recognized Record Pictures: Photographs from the Archive of the Institution of Civil Engineers represents the photographic jewels of arguably the finest collection in Britain Spanning a period of 75 years from the mid-19th century, the book contains previously unpublished examples drawn from across Europe, Africa, Australasia, the Far East, and Latin America Record pictures are the unacknowledged foundation of the history of photography In his introductory essay, Michael Collins demonstrates how this fundamental approach continues unchanged, only now it is no longer industry that applies these principles but such eminent artists as Bernd & Hilla Becher and Thomas Struth, proponents of contemporary art photography Edited and with an introduction by Michael Collins Clothbound, 10 x 12 in / 128 pgs / 60 color. 2005 г 128 стр ISBN 3865210317.
