Cindy Sherman is among the most influential artists of her generation. Using herself as model, wearing a range of costumes and portraying herself in invented situations, she interrogates the imagery employed by the mass media, po pular culture and fine art. Television, advertising, magazines, fashion and Old Master paintings all form part of her visual language. Whether using make-up, costumes, props and prosthetics to manipulate her own appearance, or devising elaborate tableaux, her entire body of 40 years' work constitutes a highly distinctive response to contemporary and earlier culture, whose stylistic tropes she appropriates and quotes. This book will explore the rich cultural sources that Sherman plunders in creating provocative and ambiguous images that lead us to question the things we see. Sherman's work is surveyed through two related themes. Examining Sherman's art within the context of portraiture it explores the way that identity is constructed from appearance. It also considers the nature of Sherman's involvement with a range of styles by positioning her work in the context of the pre-existing imagery that she appropriates.

Paul Alberts
R201 Discovery Miles 2 010 Shipped within 10 - 15 working days

Buite die hekke van Eden bevat dagboekfoto’s wat die bekende Suid-Afrikaanse fotograaf Paul Alberts oor ’n hele aantal jare in verskillende dele van Suid-Afrika geneem het. Die teks by die foto’s het Alberts self tydens sy fotografie-reise geskryf. Woord en beeld lewer kommentaar op sosiale en omgewingstoestande in die land. Met hierdie foto’s vang Alberts iets vas van die wese van lyding, verval en swaarkry, maar ook van die krag van die menslike gees. Die foto’s is by geleentheid van Alberts se 60ste verjaardag in die Oliewenhout-kunsmuseum in Bloemfontein uitgestal, saam met ’n aantal kwatryne wat Hennie Aucamp spesiaal vir die foto’s geskryf het. Buite die hekke van Eden is ’n publikasie met ’n besondere kultuurhistoriese en artistieke waarde.

At the northern entrance to Prince Albert in the Great Karoo lies Northend, a neighbourhood home to a special group of people. They have a very special way of communicating with others through their stories, which indicate an inherent joy of life. However, judging by their environment and circumstances, it is clear that they have experienced many hardship, and for an outsider it is an enriching experience to meet them.

Every picture in Slow Down Look Again tells a story and is supported by explanatory text. These enable the reader to gain insight into the past and the present of this unique neighbourhood and its residents.

The joy and sorrows of the residents of Northend - as well as their scant earthly possessions - are illustrated through Louis Botha?s excellent choice of photographic backgrounds. And yet the absolute neatness of their homes illustrates a certain pride - poverty without dilapidation. The intimacy of the photographs ultimately leaves the reader enriched. We become witnesses not only to the extraordinary character of a close-knit community, but also of its trusting relationship with the person whom they have allowed to tell their story. Louis Botha was born in Bloemfontein in 1955 and grew up on a small-holding north-east of Pretoria. After school he studied finance and followed a career in the Financial Services Industry. At the age of 40, and encouraged by his wife he pursued his hobby more seriously. He?s held several exhibitions and lives in Prince Albert.

As a small boy, John Comino-James stood in school cap and Sunday suit to have his snapshot taken under flags put up for Queen Elizabeth's Coronation. The resultant photograph resonates with an England long since disappeared, yet still fertile in the imagination. That sense of how that England has changed is the focus in John Comino-James' new book as he explores our everyday landscape of sign and symbol, from roadside verge to traffic-free shopping centre, to high-rise cityscapes.

A President in Yellowstone - The F. Jay Haynes Photographic Album of Chester Arthur's 1883 Expedition (Hardcover): Frank... A President in Yellowstone - The F. Jay Haynes Photographic Album of Chester Arthur's 1883 Expedition (Hardcover)
Frank H. Goodyear
R869 Discovery Miles 8 690 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

On the morning of July 30, 1883, President Chester A. Arthur embarked on a trip of historic proportions. His destination was Yellowstone National Park, established by an act of Congress only eleven years earlier. No sitting president had ever traveled this far west. Arthur's host and primary guide would be Philip H. Sheridan, the famed Union general. Also slated to join the expedition was a young photographer, Frank Jay Haynes. This elegant--and fascinating--book showcases Haynes's remarkable photographic album from their six-week journey.

A premier nineteenth-century landscape photographer, F. Jay Haynes, as he was known professionally, originally compiled the leather-bound album as a commemorative piece. As only six copies are known to exist, it has rarely been seen. The album's 104 images are accompanied by captions written by General Sheridan's brother, Colonel Michael V. Sheridan, who wrote daily dispatches that were distributed by the Associated Press.

In his informative introduction, historian Frank H. Goodyear III provides background about the excursion and explains the historic and aesthetic significance of Haynes's photographs. He then re-creates Arthur's journey by reintroducing Haynes's stunning images--along with Sheridan's original captions--including views of the Tetons and other landmarks; portraits of President Arthur, General Sheridan, and fellow travelers engaged in activities along the route; and images of the Shoshone and Arapaho leaders who gathered to greet the visiting party.

Published on the occasion of the reopening of the Haynes Photography Shop in Yellowstone, "A President in Yellowstone" offers a unique entry into the park's storied past.

From Gavin Thurston, the award-winning Blue Planet II and Planet Earth II cameraman, comes extraordinary and adventurous true stories of what it takes to track down and film our planet's most captivating creatures. Gavin has been a wildlife photographer for over thirty years. Against a backdrop of modern world history, he's lurked in the shadows of some of the world's remotest places in order to capture footage of the animal kingdom's finest: prides of lions, silverback gorillas, capuchin monkeys, brown bears, grey whales, penguins, mosquitoes - you name it he's filmed it. From journeys to the deepest depths of the Antarctic Ocean and the wide expanse of the Saharan deserts, to the peaks of the Himalayas and the wild forests of the Congo, Gavin's experiences describe much more than just the incredible array of animals he's filmed. He invites you to come inside the cameraman's hidden world and discover the hours spent patiently waiting for the protagonists to appear; the inevitable dangers in the wings and the challenges faced and overcome; and the heart-warming, life-affirming moments the cameras miss as well as capture.

Terence Donovan was one of the foremost photographers of his generation - among the greatest Britain has ever produced. He came to prominence in London as part of a postwar renaissance in art, fashion, graphic design and photography. Alongside David Bailey and Brian Duffy, photographers of a similar working-class background and outlook, Donovan was a new force in fashion photography. Together, they captured and helped create the Swinging 60s. They socialized with celebrities and royalty, and found themselves elevated to stardom in their own right. Gifted with an unerring eye for the iconic image, Donovan was also master of his craft, a technical genius who pushed the limits of what was possible with a camera. And yet despite his fame and status, there has never been a publication devoted to his fashion work, for he allowed none to be released during his lifetime. Terence Donovan Fashion is thus the first time his fashion pictures have been collected together in book form. Arranged chronologically, from the gritty monochromatic 1960s and 1970s to the vibrant and colourful 1980s and 1990s, the book reveals how his constant invention and experimentation not only set him apart from his contemporaries, but also influenced generations to come. Contributions from some of the many designers, models and art directors who worked with him provide fascinating insights into his practice. Compiled by the artist's widow Diana Donovan and former art director of Nova magazine and Pentagram partner David Hillman, who worked closely with Donovan for over a decade, and including an illuminating text by Robin Muir, ex-picture editor of Vogue, and foreword by Grace Coddington, creative director of American Vogue and advisor to the project, Terence Donovan Fashion is indisputably a landmark in the history of fashion photography.

Peripatetic, prolific and perceptive, Mario De Biasi has trekked the world, looking for and capturing human stories of such diversity that this collection could also be called "People." With Boubat, Cartier-Bresson, Gardin and Riboud, De Biasi was part of a generation of travelers and explorers whose oeuvre amounts to a visual ode to the second half of the twentieth century. Through his long collaboration with "Epoca," the Italian magazine, he is considered by many to be the father of photojournalism in his country, inspiring generations of young photographers, with travel bags ready and cameras always in hand. De Biasi finds intimate moments that nevertheless have the sweep of history: a crowded, colorful street scene in the Far East, or a worker napping in the crevice of an ancient monument. This book is part of the "Unpublished Photographs" series.

Around 1pm, every day of the week, nearly 600 bingo halls across the UK open their doors to thousands of loyal customers. But, although they can be found on almost every British high street, surprisingly few people ever see what goes on inside. In Bingo & Social Club, photographer Michael Hess opens up this world to a new audience. Behind the often-crumbling exteriors, he finds vibrant places full of strong characters, quirky details and more than a hint of nostalgia. In his own words: I want people to feel that they've spent a night at the bingo - to sense what it feels like to be there.A" Michael explains how the project started. I played bingo one night in 2005, just out of curiosity about what went on inside the big old converted cinema near my house. I was instantly fascinated by the characters. And so the next time I visited, I took my camera. 4 years and more than 60 bingo halls later I was ready to make Bingo & Social Club.A" Michael Hess and Maxine Gallagher spent many nights in the clubs, playing bingo, chatting with the managers and customers, and collecting stories from the people they met. They wanted to find out who these people really were. Bingo halls are not just about gambling; they're about human beings. They really do act as social hubs for many communities.A" Jack, the manager of a bingo club in Newcastle, forms the backbone of the book. He's quite a character - tough and yet extremely dignified - and I knew straight away he could add the extra dimension I was looking for. I've always been inspired by classic movies, and he suited the enigmatic lead role perfectly.A"
