Dayanita Singh : file room
Dayanita Singh
Göttingen : Steidl, 2013
Dayanita Singh's photos of archives and their custodians across India examine how memory is made and how history is narrated. These images bring to light the paradox of archives: they are impersonal in their classifications, yet each is the careful handiwork of an individual archivist, an unsung keeper of history whose decisions generate the sources of much of our knowledge. Archives are vessels of orthodox fact but can also be the home of neglected details and forgotten documents than can unfix the status quo. As the pace of change in contemporary India accelerates and Indians turn from the past and fix their gaze on the future, what will become of the archive? Singh prompts us to imagine archives as not merely documents of dusty scholarship but as monuments of knowledge, beautiful in their unkempt order. Dayanita Singh was born in New Delhi in 1961 and studied at the National Institute of Design in Ahmedabad and the International Center of Photography in New York.

Lima : Biblioteca Nacional del Perú, [2015]
Palabras preliminares = Opening words / Ramón Mujica Pinilla.

The National Library of Peru, in addition to its bibliographic documentary funds, houses a rich collection of photographs. It includes the photographic archives of the Studio "Fotografía Central" (later Courret Hermanos) established in Lima in the 19th century. In 1868, brothers Eugéne (b. France 1841 190?) and Aquiles Courret (b. France 1830) associated with Carlos Luis Roswell specializing in photographic portraits in the city of Valparaiso. During the development of the Pacific War, the Courret studio was one of the most prominent, portraying both the Peruvian and Chilean military officers as well as some photographs on the battlefields. In 1900, Eugenio Courret exhibited his works at the Universal exhibition in Paris, earning a gold medal. He died in France a few years later.

Thermal integrity in mechanics and engineering
Shorr, Boris F
Berlin : Springer, [2015]
Introduction -- Thermoelasticity -- Thermal plasticity. Unidirectional proportional loading -- Thermal plasticity. Cyclic loading and heating -- Unsteady thermal plasticity -- Creep and long-term strength at stationary stresses and temperatures -- Cyclic creep. Thermocyclic durability -- Creep and durability at non-stationary loading and heating -- Estimation of design thermal integrity -- Elastic and inelastic thermal stability.- Thermal integrity of anisotropic bodies .- Special problems of thermal integrity.

The book is targeted at engineers, university lecturers, postgraduates, and final year undergraduate students involved in computational modelling and experimental and theoretical analysis of the high-temperature behavior of engineering structures. It will also be of interest to researchers developing the thermal strength theory as a branch of continuum mechanics. Thermal integrity is a multidisciplinary field combining the expertise of mechanical engineers, material scientists and applied mathematicians, each approaching the problem from their specific viewpoint. This monograph draws on the research of a broad scientific community including the author's contribution. The scope of thermal strength analysis was considerably extended thanks to modern computers and the implementation of FEM codes. However, the author believes that some material models adopted in the advanced high-performance software, are not sufficiently justificated due to lack of easy-to-follow books on the theoretical and experimental aspects of thermal integrity. The author endeavors to provide a thorough yet sufficiently simple presentation of the underlying concepts, making the book compelling to a wide audience.

Sobre la serie Marcados = On the series Marcadosʺ / Agustín Pérez Rubio, MALBA Presentación = Introduction / Sandra Torlucci, UNA Circunstancias = Circumstances / Claudia Andújar Obras = Works -- Marcados Marcados para Biografía = Biography.

Claudia Andujar (Claudine Haas, 1931) was born in Switzerland and has lived in Brazil since 1955. In contact with the Yanomami Indians of Roraima, she spent extended periods in their company of making photographic essays that make up a chapter in the history of Brazilian photography. The series consists of 85pictures of Yanomami made between 1981 and 1983, during a trip to survey the situation. As the Yanomami do not respond to name, a 19th century method was chosen for the identification of indigenous peoples: a photograph of the individual with a number attached to the body. These records, now transformed into a book, being published in Portuguese and English, include, in addition to photos, an itinerary of visits and portions of the report of the photographer on the communities studied.

Danny Lyon : message to the future
Julian Cox with Elisabeth Sussman, Alexander Nemerov, Danica Willard Sachs, Ed Halter, Alan Rinzler
San Francisco : Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco ; [2016]
"Coming of age in the 1960s, the photographer Danny Lyon (b. 1942) distinguished himself with work that emphasized intimate social engagement. In 1962 Lyon traveled to the segregated South to photograph the civil rights movement. Subsequent projects on biker culture, the demolition and redevelopment of lower Manhattan, and the Texas prison system, and more recently on the Occupy movement and the vanishing culture in China's booming Shanxi Province, share Lyon's signature immersive approach and his commitment to social and political issues that concern those on the margins of society. Lyon's photography is paralleled by his work as a filmmaker and a writer. Danny Lyon: Message to the Future is the first in-depth examination of this leading figure in American photography and film, and the first publication to present his influential bodies of work in all media in their full context. Lead essayists Julian Cox and Elisabeth Sussman provide an account of Lyon's five-decade career. Alexander Nemerov writes about Lyon's work in Knoxville, Tennessee; Ed Halter assesses the artist's films; Danica Willard Sachs evaluates his photomontages; and Julian Cox interviews Alan Rinzler about his role in publishing Lyon's earliest works. With extensive back matter and illustrations, this publication will be the most comprehensive account of this influential artist's work"--

Life after dark : a history of British nightclubs and music venues
Haslam, Dave, author
London : Simon & Schuster, 2015
Wonderballs, gold dust, discos become Tescoes -- Bare-necked ladies, shaggy-looking Germans, everyone is drunk -- Dream palaces, degenerative boys, jazz-mad dancing girls -- Bare room with lightbulbs, raves, what happened next -- Merseybeat, flashing eyes, a leg-over -- Pills, thrills, not keeping music live -- Cosmonauts, light shows, Clapton takes acid -- Soul power, Big Julie, 'YOu make me feel (Mighty Real)' -- Secret gigs, home-butchered hair, love action at the Roxy -- Posers, the Krays, a tribe called 'goths' -- Tape machines, modern drugs, unknown pleasures -- Wild bunch, headless pigeons, a track with no name -- Police raids, the Prodigy in a bingo hall, an MC in a cupboard -- Celebrities, more ecstasy, music in life -- Outro. Michael Stipe's shoe, the cocktail from Hull, worlds emerge.

"Nightclubs and music venues are often the source of a lifetime's music taste, best friends and vivid memories. They can define a town, a city or a generation, and breed scenes and bands that change music history. In Life After Dark Dave Haslam reveals and celebrates a definitive history of significant venues and great nights out. Writing with passion and authority, he takes us from vice-ridden Victorian dance halls to acid house and beyond; through the jazz decades of luxurious ballrooms to mods in basement dives and the venues that nurtured the Beatles, the Stones, Northern Soul and the Sex Pistols; from psychedelic light shows to high street discos; from the Roxy to the Hacienda; from the Krays to the Slits; and from reggae sound systems to rave nights in Stoke. In a journey to dozens of towns and cities, taking in hundreds of unforgettable stories on the way, Haslam explores the sleaziness, the changing fashions, the moral panics and the cultural and commercial history of nightlife. He interviews clubbers and venue owners, as well as DJs and musicians; he meets one of the gangsters who nearly destroyed Manchester's nightlife and discusses Goth clubs in Leeds with David Peace."--Publisher description.

The uses of photography : art, politics, and the reinvention of a medium
edited by Jill Dawsey ; with contributions by David Antin, Jill Dawsey, Pamela M. Lee, Judith Rodenbeck, and Benjamin J. Young
La Jolla, California : Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego ; [2016]
"The uses of Photography examines a network of artists who were active in Southern California between the late 1960s and early 1980s and whose experiments with photography opened the medium to a profusion of new strategies and subjects. These artists introduced urgent social issues and themes of everyday life into the seemingly neutral territory of conceptual art, through photographic works that took on hybrid forms, from books and postcards to video and text-and-image installations. Tracing a crucial history of photoconceptual practice, The Uses of Photography focuses on an artistic community that formed in and around the young University of California San Diego, founded in 1960, and its visual arts department, founded in 1967. Artists such as Eleanor Antin, Allan Kaprow, Fred Lonidier, Martha Rosler, Allan Sekula, and Carrie Mae Weems employed photography and its expanded forms as a means to dismantle modernist autonomy, to contest notions of photographic truth, and to engage in political critique. The work of these artists shaped emergent accounts of postmodernism in the visual arts and their influence is felt throughout the global contemporary art world today."--Page 4 of cover.

Street : the human clay
Friedlander, Lee, photographer
New Haven : Yale University Art Gallery, 2016
American photographer Lee Friedlander (b. 1934) has had an expansive career, photographing his subjects-from family and friends to political figures and celebrities-in their everyday environments, while simultaneously changing the very landscape of his chosen media. In his Human Clay series, images of people in their surroundings are presented together thematically. Each book features hundreds of photographs, many never before published, chosen and sequenced by the artist himself from his vast archive. This latest volume in the series compiles some of Friedlander's street photography taken over the course of more than 50 years-including images of Atlanta, Buffalo, Denver, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, and San Francisco, as well as more than 125 photographs of New York City.

Since the early 1970s, when he hit the streets of Los Angeles with a 35mm camera and the basic technical knowledge he had acquired in darkroom classes at East Los Angeles College, photographer Anthony Hernandez has consistently challenged himself by adopting new formats and subject matter. Moving from black-and-white to colour, from 35mm to large-format cameras and from the human figure to landscapes to abstracted detail, Hernandez has produced a varied body of work united by its arresting formal beauty and subtle engagement with social issues. At first largely unaware of the formal traditions of the medium, Hernandez developed a style of street photography uniquely attuned to the desolate beauty and sprawling expanses of L.A. Published to accompany the photographer's first retrospective, Anthony Hernandez offers a comprehensive introduction to Hernandez's career of more than forty years, including many photographs that have never before been exhibited or published. The catalogue fully represents the range and breadth of Hernandez's work, with an extensive plate section sequenced in collaboration with the photographer. 0Exhibition: San Francisco Museum, USA (24.09.2016-01.01.2017).

Overview: Food expert and celebrated food historian Andrew F. Smith recounts-in delicious detail-the creation of contemporary American cuisine. The diet of the modern American wasn't always as corporate, conglomerated, and corn-rich as it is today, and the style of American cooking, along with the ingredients that compose it, has never been fixed. With a cast of characters including bold inventors, savvy restaurateurs, ruthless advertisers, mad scientists, adventurous entrepreneurs, celebrity chefs, and relentless health nuts, Smith pins down the truly crackerjack history behind the way America eats. Smith's story opens with early America, an agriculturally independent nation where most citizens grew and consumed their own food. Over the next two hundred years, however, Americans would cultivate an entirely different approach to crops and consumption. Advances in food processing, transportation, regulation, nutrition, and science introduced highly complex and mechanized methods of production. The proliferation of cookbooks, cooking shows, and professionally designed kitchens made meals more commercially, politically, and culturally potent. To better understand these trends, Smith delves deeply and humorously into their creation. Ultimately he shows how, by revisiting this history, we can reclaim the independent, locally sustainable roots of American food.

A square meal : a culinary history of the Great Depression
Ziegelman, Jane, author
New York, NY : Harper, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, [2016]
"From the author of the acclaimed 97 Orchard and her husband, a culinary historian, an in-depth exploration of the greatest food crisis the nation has ever faced--the Great Depression--and how it transformed America's culinary culture. The decade-long Great Depression, a period of shifts in the country's political and social landscape, forever changed the way America eats. Before 1929, America's relationship with food was defined by abundance. But the collapse of the economy, in both urban and rural America, left a quarter of all Americans out of work and undernourished--shattering long-held assumptions about the limitlessness of the national larder. In 1933, as women struggled to feed their families, President Roosevelt reversed long-standing biases toward government-sponsored 'food charity.' For the first time in American history, the federal government assumed, for a while, responsibility for feeding its citizens. The effects were widespread. Championed by Eleanor Roosevelt, 'home economists' who had long fought to bring science into the kitchen rose to national stature. Tapping into America's long-standing ambivalence toward culinary enjoyment, they imposed their vision of a sturdy, utilitarian cuisine on the American dinner table. Through the Bureau of Home Economics, these women led a sweeping campaign to instill dietary recommendations, the forerunners of today's Dietary Guidelines for Americans. At the same time, rising food conglomerates introduced packaged and processed foods that gave rise to a new American cuisine based on speed and convenience. This movement toward a homogenized national cuisine sparked a revival of American regional cooking. In the ensuing decades, the tension between local traditions and culinary science has defined our national cuisine--a battle that continues today. A Square Meal examines the impact of economic contraction and environmental disaster on how Americans ate then--and the lessons and insights those experiences may hold for us today. A Square Meal features 25 black-and-white photographs"--

The camera does the rest : how Polaroid changed photography
Buse, Peter, 1970- author
Chicago : The University of Chicago Press, [2016]
Introduction -- Just a toy -- Intimate, one of a kind -- Polaroid and digital -- Polaroid attractions -- Polaroid values -- Just for snapshots? -- Conclusion.

In a world where nearly everyone has a cellphone camera capable of zapping countless instant photos, it can be a challenge to remember just how special and transformative Polaroid photography was in its day. And yet, theres still something magical for those of us who recall waiting for a Polaroid picture to develop. Writing in the context of two Polaroid Corporation bankruptcies, not to mention the obsolescence of its film, Peter Buse argues that Polaroid was, and is, distinguished by its processby the fact that, as the New York Times put it in 1947, "the camera does the rest." Polaroid was often dismissed as a toy, but Buse takes it seriously, showing how it encouraged photographic play as well as new forms of artistic practice. Drawing on unprecedented access to the archives of the Polaroid Corporation, Buse reveals Polaroid as photography at its most intimate, where the photographer, photograph, and subject sit in close proximity in both time and spacemaking Polaroid not only the perfect party camera but also the tool for frankly salacious pictures taking. Along the way, Buse tells the story of the Polaroid Corporation and its ultimately doomed hard-copy wager against the rising tide of digital imaging technology. He explores the continuities and the differences between Polaroid and digital, reflecting on what Polaroid can tell us about how we snap photos today. Richly illustrated, The Camera Does the Rest will delight historians, art critics, analog fanatics, photographers, and all those who miss the thrill of waiting to see what develops.--Publisher description.
