Old Paris and changing New York : photographs by Eugène Atget and Berenice Abbott
Moore, Kevin D., 1964- author
Cincinnati : FotoFocus : 
In this comprehensive study, Kevin Moore examines the relationship between Eugene Atget (1857-1927) and Berenice Abbott (1898-1991) and the nuances of their individual photographic projects. Abbott and Atget met in Man Ray's Paris studio in the early 1920s. Atget, then in his sixties, was obsessively recording the streets, gardens, and courtyards of the 19th-century city-old Paris-as modernization transformed it. Abbott acquired much of Atget's work after his death and was a tireless advocate for its value. She later relocated to New York and emulated Atget in her systematic documentation of that city, culminating in the publication of the project Changing New York.0 This engaging publication discusses how, during the 1930s and 1940s, Abbott paid further tribute to Atget by publishing and exhibiting his work and by printing hundreds of images from his negatives, using the gelatin silver process. Through Abbott's efforts, Atget became known to an audience of photographers and writers who found diverse inspiration in his photographs. Abbott herself is remembered as one of the most independent, determined, and respected photographers of the 20th century.

Pink : the history of a punk, pretty, powerful color
Steele, Valerie, author,
New York, New York : Thames & Hudson, 2018
"Today, with the advent of 'millennial pink', the colour formerly associated with Barbie has acquired a new identity. Nor is this the first time the symbolism of pink has been radically transformed. In this volume, in collaboration with a major exhibition at the Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology, New York, curator and fashion historian Valerie Steele explores the history and significance of pink in fashion, art and culture from the 18th century to the present. Steele and her co-authors tell the whole story of this controversial colour, emphasizing how its meanings changed throughout the centuries and across the globe, in cultures as diverse as France, India, Japan, Mexico and the United States. In 18th-century France, men and women alike wore pink, which was a fashionably 'new' colour. A century later, however, pink had become feminized and eroticized in the West (although it took longer for pink-versus-blue gender coding to develop). 'Pink' is beautifully illustrated, with illustrations of stunning pink fashions given context by photographs, advertisements and works of art. It features essays by scholars across the disciplines, giving readers access to a wealth of research into subjects as diverse as Hollywood films and the symbolism of the pink triangle. This book will appeal to all those interested in fashion and culture, as well as those who love pink"--Publisher's description.

Tobias Zielony : maskirovka
Zielony, Tobias, 1973- photographer
Milan, Italy : Mousse Publishing, 
The term 'maskirovka' commonly refers to a Russian tradition of covert warfare and military deception, and it has recently reemerged to describe Russian politics toward Ukraine since the Maidan uprising. The "hybrid war" in eastern Ukraine has never been officially declared, yet in Crimea masked special forces, so-called "green men," have occupied Ukrainian territory. On the other hand, masks also played a crucial role in protecting the Maidan protesters from tear gas, and helped to hide their identities from the authorities. The publication presents photographs and interviews made in Kyiv, Ukraine, between October 2016 and July 2017, depicting the LGBTQI and techno scene. As Tobias Zielony explains, "I chose the title Maskirovka because it refers to the fragile and treacherous situation in which the protagonists live and act."

A narrative history of the lightbulb ; Reparations ; Trans/literate -- Contributors -- About Catherine Wagner.
Catherine Wagner: Place, History, and the Archive' presents a 40-year survey of the photographic work of Catherine Wagner (born 1953). Including examples from 19 of the artist's series, it is the first publication to survey Wagner's work from its beginnings in the mid-1970s to the present day. Her early work, which looked at architecture and its core materials, employed strategies she calls "archaeology in reverse"; this set off a career-long examination of the notion of construction in institutions as various as art museums, science labs, classrooms, the home and Disneyland. Scientific, cultural and natural histories are key realms of this exploration; working in series, Wagner explores the physical and conceptual structures of our world. Featuring an essay by curator Shoair Mavlian and a conversation between the artist and Stephen Shore, 'Place, History, and the Archive' offers a thorough survey of Wagner's wide-ranging work.

American runway : 75 years of fashion and the front row
Moore, Booth, author
New York, NY : Abrams, 2018
American Runway : an introduction -- Putting American fashion on the map -- The rise of American sportswear -- Getting organized -- Strengthening the American position -- The show business of Fashion Week -- Behind the scenes -- In their shoes -- The rise of the show spectacular -- Most memorable moments -- The show must go on -- Getting social -- The future of the runway.
New York Fashion Week has served many purposes throughout its long history, but it has always remained at the center of the American fashion world. During World War II, Fashion Week challenged the dominance of French couture; in the 1970s and 1980s, it was a showcase for American sportswear stars who became household names; in the 2000s, it was the stage for celebrity designers using the runway as vehicle for entertainment; and now, it is the place to see and be seen by contemporary reality TV and social media stars. Now, this illustrious history is told as it's never been told before, in a book packed with designer interviews, backstage ephemera, and exclusive photographs culled from all 75 years of New York Fashion Week. Part historical over-view, part scrapbook, and part fashion-industry field guide, American Runway will bring to life the people, places, and over-the-top runway productions of New York Fashion Week--and will sate the appetites of die-hard fashion fans and casual fashionistas alike.

The artist's eye
Woodman, Edward, 1943- photographer
London : Art/Books Publishing Ltd, 2018
British photographer Edward Woodman (born 1943) has portrayed pioneering artists and their work for more than four decades--from Richard Deacon, Antony Gormley and Cornelia Parker to Mona Hatoum, Rachel Whiteread and Damien Hirst. At a time when installation and performance were becoming central to British art, he was the artist's photographer of choice. In parallel with this work, Woodman has mapped the transformation of London itself, acting as a diarist of the city and charting its architectural and social evolution since the late 1960s. This book presents work from his entire career, including artists' portraits, studios, exhibitions, installations and performances, collaborations with artists, social documentation and more recent and personal works. It also features texts on Woodman's practice and a critical assessment of his work in the history of photography, as well as contributions from some of the artists with whom he worked most closely.

Women with cameras (self portrait)
Collier, Anne, 1970- photographer
New York, NY : Karma Books, 
This book collects images that New York based artist Anne Collier (born 1970) originally presented as a slideshow of 80 35mm slides depicting found images of female subjects in the act of taking self-portraits. Dating from the 1970s to the early 2000s, these relics of the pre-digital age were collected by Collier, each image discarded by its original owner but finding its way back to relevance in Collier's work. The slideshow consists of amateur snapshots of women photographing themselves with film cameras prior to the advent of the digital "selfie." Instead of circulating on social media, these abandoned images once existed for a private audience. The resulting work is steeped in a deep sense of loneliness, illustrating photography's contentious relationship to memory, loss and self-representation. The book represents a kind of sequel to Collier's 2017 book 'Women with Cameras (Anonymous)'.

Lars Tunbjörk : retrospective
Tunbjörk, Lars, 1956- photographer
[Stockholm] : Bokförlaget Max Ström, 
Initially inspired by Swedish masters such as Christer Strömholm, as well as Stephen Shore and William Eggleston, Lars Tunbjörk (1956-2015) was one of the great and truly original European photographers. Tunbjörk's international breakthrough came in 1993 with the photobook Country beside Itself. Celebrated by Martin Parr and Gerry Badger as "an acute observer of modern life," Tunbjörk's color images amplified the mundane and the absurd in a quietly surreal fashion using the hard light of flash photography, which became his signature style and influenced a subsequent generation of photographers. His best-known photobook series include Office (2001), which depicts office workers in bizarre chance positions, and Home (2003), in which everyday items such as flowers or armchairs are made to reveal a quiet absurdity in Swedish suburbia. With more than 250 images, this volume constitutes the most substantial overview of his work.

MärklinMODERNE : vom Bau zum Bausatz und zurück = from architecture to assembly kit and back again
Karin Berkemann, Daniel Bartetzko (Hg.)
Berlin : Jovis, ©2018
The architecture of model railway systems in the German post-war economic boom was surprisingly modern. New stood next to old, high-rises and half-timbered buildings coexisted peacefully. Still today the famous "Villa in Tessin," high-rises, gas stations, and train and administrative buildings of the post-war period connect generations throughout Germany. "märklinMODERNE" shows for the first time how enthusiastic the nostalgic model railway builders truly were for modernism. The exhibition and catalog present model assembly kits and the real buildings that inspired them, and thus bring the architecture and model construction history of the post-war period together. Exhibition: German Architecture Museum, Frankfurt am Main, Germany (18.05.-09.09.2018).

Steinhauer, Peter, photographer
Brooklyn, NY : powerHouse Books, 2018
Since 1993, Peter Steinhauer has documented the many facets of Asian culture, with a keen eye for architecture, urban landscape and man-made structures and environments. On his first visit to Hong Kong in 1994, Steinhauer noticed a very large structure encaged in bamboo and swathed in yellow material - standing out beneath a canopy of clouds, glowing against the monochromatic, urban skyline. Hong Kong is the final stronghold of the bamboo scaffolders who once practiced their trade at construction sites throughout Asia. 0Reproduced in this book are one hundred remarkable images that reflect Steinhauer?s fascination with these hauntingly beautiful and monumental edifices, their bamboo scaffolding draped in brightly hued swathing. The title 'Cocoons' is a natural choice for this body of work celebrating the giant wrapped, cocoon-like structures, later to be unveiled ceremoniously, revealing for the first time the brand-new façades.

Moscow = Moskva
Brooklyn, New York : powerHouse Books, 2018
Welcome to Boogie's Moscow. These are people sculpted by a brutal, concrete landscape, fighting to survive. This is a world of football hooligans, gang tattoos, boxing ... Yet this is not misery porn: There is an inherent vitality in the violence--the enduring toughness--of these images. There is dynamism, there is esprit de corps, there is strength. "Raw" is a term that is perhaps overused, but Boogie's photos truly assault the senses. But the photographer's arresting gaze is directly returned by his subjects, and an undeniable rapport and intimacy is felt by the viewer. We are witnessing something, above all, crucially human.

Ravens & red lipstick : Japanese photography since 1945
Fritsch, Lena, author
London : Thames & Hudson Inc., 
Introduction -- I. Post-War Trauma -- II. The Image Generation -- III. New Photographic Freedom -- IV. Girls' Photography -- V. Contemporary Japanese Photography -- Timeline: Photography in Japan -- Interviewees' Biographies -- Endnotes -- Further Reading -- Picture List -- Acknowledgments -- Index.
Ravens & Red Lipstick provides a visually bold survey of Japanese photography's recent history. Drawing together extensive research and a succession of engaging dialogues with both emerging and established photographers, Lena Fritsch traces its development chronologically from the severity of post-war Realism to the diverse ingenuity of photography in contemporary Japan, via the work of movements and groups such as Vivo in the 1960s and "Girl Power" in the '90s. Interspersed are fascinating original interviews with some of the most influential photographers of each era, from Daido Moriyama to Nobuyoshi Araki and Rinko Kawauchi. Interrogating the business, education and art-institutional backdrops to each movement, Fritsch masterfully demonstrates the centrality of these contexts to the form and reception of a cross-section of Japanese photographic works. Fritsch's great achievement is to bring observations from a range of disciplines to bear on her commentary with imagination and clarity.

Terry O'Neill, rare and unseen : a portfolio of vintage prints
O'Neill, Terry, 1938- photographer
Woodbridge, Suffolk, UK : ACC Art Books Ltd, 2018
Terry O'Neill is one of the greatest living photographers today, with work displayed and exhibited at first-class museums and fine-art galleries worldwide. His iconic images of Frank Sinatra, The Beatles, Brigitte Bardot, Faye Dunaway, and David Bowie - to name but a few - are instantly recognisable across the globe. Now, for the first time, O'Neill selects a range of images from his extensive archive of vintage prints, which will surprise and delight collectors and photography lovers alike. Long before the age of digital, photographers would send physical prints to the papers and magazines. These prints were passed around, handled by many, stamped on the back, and often times captioned. After use, the prints were either filed away, thrown out or - for the lucky few - sent back to the photographer or their photo agencies. At the dawn of the 1960s, when O'Neill's career began, physical prints were the norm. Terry kept as many as he could that were sent back to him. "I just kept everything," he says. "I don't know why. Back then, there wasn't really a reason to keep them. Photos were used straight away and then I just moved on to the next assignment. No one was thinking these would be worth anything down the line, let alone fifty years later."

Gordon Parks : the new tide, early work, 1940-1950
Brookman, Philip, author,
Washington, District of Columbia : National Gallery of Art ; 2018
Focusing on new research and access to forgotten pictures, "The New Tide, Early Work 1940-1950" documents the importance of these years in shaping Gordon Parks' passionate vision. The book brings together photographs and publications made during the first and most formative decade of his 65-year career. During the 1940s Parks' photographic ambitions grew to express a profound understanding of his social, cultural and political experiences. From the first photographs he published in Saint Paul, Minnesota, and his relationship to the Chicago Black Renaissance, to his mentorship with Roy Stryker and his breakthrough work for America's influential picture magazines - including "Ebony" and "Life" - this book traces Parks' rapid evolution from an accomplished, self-taught practitioner to a groundbreaking artistic and journalistic voice.

A bright future : how some countries have solved climate change and the rest can follow
Goldstein, Joshua S., 1952- author
New York : Public Affairs, 2019
Decarbonization: Climate won't wait ; What Sweden did ; What Germany did -- Half measures: More energy, not less ; 100 percent renewables? ; Methane is still fossil -- Facing fears: Safest energy ever ; Risks and fears ; Handling waste ; Preventing proliferation -- The way forward: Keep what we've got ; Next-generation technology ; China, Russia, India ; Pricing carbon pollution ; Act globally.
"A proven, fast, inexpensive, practical way to cut greenhouse gas emissions and prevent catastrophic climate change. As climate change nears potentially disastrous tipping points, a solution is hiding in plain sight. Several countries have successfully replaced fossil fuels with low-carbon energy sources by combining renewable energy with a quick buildout of nuclear power. By following their example, the world could dramatically cut fossil fuel use by midcentury, even as energy consumption continues to rise. Joshua Goldstein and Staffan Qvist explain how clean energy rapidly replaced fossil fuels in such places as Sweden, France, and Ontario, while enhancing both prosperity and the natural environment. Engagingly written, yet backed by deep research, this book will encourage a fresh look at the assumptions that have long shaped the climate change debate. The stakes are extraordinarily high and the deadline for action is near. This clear and compelling book could spark the transformation in energy policy that the world needs."--Dust jacket.

Prólogo. Al maestro con cariño -- "¿Cómo va?" : conversaciones con Domingo Ulloa, maestro de fotógrafos.
Antonio Quintana, perhaps the greatest photographer in Chile, had a prominent disciple who would accompany him for decades in the art of light: Domingo Ulloa. From his teacher, Ulloa not only inherited the chair of Photojournalism in the School of Journalism of the University of Chile, but also the rigor in the subjects, the artistic and social sensitivity, and the mastery of the technique; the framing and the art of the laboratory. An important part of his work served as a basis for the Exposition Face of Chile, of October 1960, sponsored by the university, which traveled the continents with three hundred and fifty large-scale extensions. The itinerancy of the exhibition concluded in 1969, at the Osaka World Fair. Fifty of the photographs that make up this volume were part of that show that revealed Chile to the world.

Berlin : Hatje Cantz, 
The history of photography is deeply rooted in Hungary, and many outstanding artists--including the iconic László Moholy-Nagy--left their mark on the art of photography in the early twentieth century. However, it wasn't until the mid-1980s that photography was incorporated into higher education at the institution that is now named after László Moholy-Nagy. This catalog offers an extensive survey of the thirty-three years that have gone by since this program began. It also presents outstanding works by the artists who have graduated from the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design. Alongside essays by Jörg M. Colberg and David Campany, the volume features works by Sári Ember, Anna Fabricius, Viola Fátyol, Adél Koleszár, Gábor Arion Kudász, Péter Puklus, Gergely Szatmári, Éva Szombat, and others.

Bosworth, Barbara, 1953- photographer
Santa Fe, NM : Radius Books, 
Preface / Barbara Bosworth -- Time travels / Margot Anne Kelley -- The moon -- The heavens -- The sun -- Galileo's observations / Owen Gingerich -- A nod to John Herschel / Joanne Lukitsh -- Appendix.
A follow-up to her successful 2015 book The Meadow, this project focuses on Boston-based photographer Barbara Bosworth's (born 1953) images of the moon, sun and sky. Made over the past several years with an 8x10 camera, the star images are hour-long exposures with the camera mounted on a clock drive. The sun and moon images are made with a telescope attached to her camera. Speaking of her inspiration for these images, Bosworth writes: "Every clear night of the summer my father would go out for a walk to look at the night sky. Many nights I would join him. We knew the North Star, and the Big Bear, but the rest became our own. At times we stood still for an hour or more to watch for shooting stars. We had no agenda. It was all about amazement at a sky full of stars. With this sense of wonder, I began making photographs of the Heavens. In these days of the Hubble Telescope and its spectacular imagery from deep space, I wanted a reminder of the mystery of our own night sky." The book also includes facsimile editions of three artist's books that Bosworth has made as a nod to Galileo's 17th-century publications in which he first observed the skies through a telescope.

Pedro Guerra, father and son, recorded life in the Yucatán state from 1877 to 1959; its 500 thousand negatives give rise to this book. Pedro Guerra Jordán and Pedro Guerra Aguilar, father and son, chronicle Yucatan from the late nineteenth century and until the middle of the twentieth century. From his studio Guerra Art Photography, whose collection has been protected at the Autonomous University of Yucatan (UADY) since 1977, the two chroniclers made the portrait of an era, built through around 500 thousand negatives and visual documents "a social and cultural picture about the Yucatan Peninsula", as they claim, as a prologue, José Antonio Rodríguez and Alberto Tovalín Ahumada, editors of the book Fotografía Artística Guerra, which is published within the framework of the 40th anniversary of the Pedro Guerra Photo Library. "Without a doubt, the Pedro Guerra archive contributes with other collections from Mexico to visually build the national history, and the fact that the Autonomous University of Yucatan has hosted this collection and preserved it and then enriched it, including with donations from other photographers and from other collectors, it is a wonder because it documents the history of the 19th and 20th century of Yucatan and even of the Peninsula," says the historian and anthropologist Blanca González Rodríguez Ten scholars also participate in the book analyzing the vital issues in the Guerra archive: The Study, Cotidians, Henequen, Vestiges, Rituals and Politics. Edward Jimmy Montañez, who worked for 32 years at the Fototeca Pedro Guerra, points out that father and son were undoubtedly the most important photographers not only from Yucatan but even from all of the southeast of the country. "In almost 100 years of photographic production we will find that they portrayed Yucatec society as a whole, we can see portraits of both the upper social class, entrepreneurs, Yucatecan hacienda owners, governors, municipal presidents and in the same way portrayed peasants and workers; and the quality will not decrease because it is a social class or another." The editor Alberto Tovalín Ahumada says that there is a lot of material in the Guerra archive, so they decided to make a selection and focus on six themes that range from his portraits in the studio - which survived until 1975 in charge of a nephew of Pedro Guerra Aguilar - to images about daily life, haciendas of the henequen, archaeological remains, politics and rituals such as parties and the photography of the dead. "We were able to select the most representative themes, for example, politics, where the first feminist Congress is interesting, that is, the role of women in the political life of Yucatan that was impressive; the era of Felipe Carrillo Puerto, de Madero, Pino Suárez and Serapio Rendón. There is a very beautiful picture in the theater during the feminist congress," says Tovalín Ahumada.

Berlin : Hatje Cantz, 
Historically, Ultima Thule has been a concept for 'the northernmost boundary with the end of the world', a mythical place. For more than 200 years artists, writers, scientists and adventurers have felt the attraction of life on this boundary. In this succession, Danish photographer Henrik Saxgren (*1953 in Randers) locates his work which explores the life in Arctic Greenland. Spread over six journeys, he spent more than six months in the Thule region. His photographs document the life of what may be the last generation of hunters on the sea ice of Thule, hunting and catching the great (sea) mammals, like their ancestors for centuries before them. Despite of the physically and mentally challenging conditions, Saxgren continued his work and created new pictures for which he even sometimes had to overcome his own fear: pictures that can supplement the narrative of the Arctic, its drama, its myths.

Readers will learn how to forage for materials such as soot, rust, cigarette butts, peach pits, and black walnut, then how to mix, test, and transform these ingredients into rich, vibrant inks that are sensitive to both place and environment. Organized by color, and featuring lovely minimalist photography throughout, Make Ink combines science, art, and craft to instill the basics of ink making and demonstrate the beauty and necessity of engaging with one of mankind's oldest tools of communication."--Provided by publisher.

A peculiar paradise : Florida photographs
Benn, Nathan, author,
Brooklyn, New York : powerHouse Books, 2018
The combined effect of images by Nathan Benn, while on assignment with National Geographic, of his home state with charming anecdotes creates a delightfully vivid, passionate, and subjective look at what adds up to a love letter to the Sunshine State. 'A Peculiar Paradise: Florida Photographs' by Nathan Benn shows its subject--Benn's homestate--at the dawn of the 1980s, during a time when Florida's only true constant was change. Although some regions rested like the state's alligators, staid and satisfied, other areas became a hotbed for the narcotics trade and a hub for Caribbean and South American immigration. This increasing cultural diversity (Miami's English-speaking Caucasian population was in free fall, from 84% in 1950 to just 12% by 1990), and the state's innate peculiarity is captured here with the keen sense of an anthropologist and the glint-in-the-eye of a local.

A chronology of photography : a cultural timeline from camera obscura to instagram
edited by Paul Lowe
New York, New York : Thames & Hudson, 2019
Birth to 1850 -- 1850 to 1900 -- 1900 to 1950 -- 1950 to 1975 -- 1975 to 2000 -- 2000 to Present.
A Chronology of Photography presents a fresh perspective on the medium by taking a purely chronological approach to its history, tracing the complex links between technological innovations, social changes, and artistic interventions. Structured around a central timeline that charts the development of photography from early experiments with optics right up to the present-day explosion of digital media, it features sumptuous reproductions of key photographs, together with commentaries and contextual information about the social, political and cultural events of the period in which they were taken. Special technical sections that explain how the development of new camera technology impacted the practice of photography, while feature spreads highlight important themes and influential practitioners. Covering a wide selection of genres, styles and artists, it is invaluable as a comprehensive guide to photography in all its different forms and functions.

Levitt, Helen, photographer,
Vienna, Austria : Albertina ; 
Helen Levitt (1913-2009) numbers among the foremost exponents of street photography. As a passionate observer and chronicler of everyday street life in New York, she spent decades documenting residents of the city's poorer neighbourhoods such as Lower East Side and Harlem. Levitt's oeuvre stands out for her sense of dynamics and surrealistic sense of humour, and her employment of color photography was revolutionary: Levitt numbers among those photographers who pioneered and established color as a means of artistic expression. The book accompanying the retrospective of the Albertina Museum features around 130 of her iconic works. Many of these photos come from Helen Levitt's personal estate, and this exhibition represents their first-ever public showing. Exhibition: Albertina, Vienna, Austria (11.10.2018-27.01.2019).

Kenro Izu's "Eternal light" radiates spirituality. In Varanasi, known as the Indian?City of Light,? Izu photographed festivals, rituals, cremations as well as individual experiences of joy and suffering related to death and the afterlife. In Allahabad, where the Ganges and Yamuna Rivers meet, Izu attended the festival of Kumbh Mela, and in the city of Vrindavan, he photographed among the thousands of temples dedicated to Krishna. Highly attuned to the emotions of his subjects, Izu?s exquisitely rendered photographs transcend earthly concerns. He has stated:?It?s as though the Hindu gods have suggested that I think about the question, where are people heading, in this life and after?? Through these photographs Izu strives to find the answers. Co-published with the Howard Greenberg Library, New York Exhibition: Kiyasato Museum of Photographic Arts, Yamanashi, Japan (July 2016).

Creating things that matter : the art & science of innovations that last
Edwards, David A., 1961- author
New York : Henry Holt and Company, 2018
Introduction -- Part I: The aesthetics of creating. Creating in a world that no longer exists -- Creating in a world that does exist -- Part II: The creator's cycle. Ideation: What if I don't even have an idea? -- Experimentation: What will I do now? -- Exhibition: Minding the ball -- Part III: Making a future we all want. Grassroots renaissance -- The fire of renaissance -- Culture, change, and hope.
Art and science are famous opposites. Contemporary innovation mostly keeps them far apart. But in this book, David Edwards--world-renowned inventor; Harvard professor of the practice of idea translation; creator of breathable insulin, edible food packaging, and digital scents--reveals that the secret to creating very new things of lasting benefit, including innovations we will need to sustain human life on the planet, lies in perceiving art and science as one.

Oliviero Toscani : immaginare
a cura di Susanna Crisanti, Nicoletta Ossanna Cavadini
Milano : Skira, 2017
Nell'ambito della nuova stagione espositiva 2017-2108 (il cui fil rouge è, questa volta, il tema de "I visionari"), il m.a.x. museo ospita una mostra antologica dell'opera di Oliviero Toscani, fotografo e comunicatore di fama internazionale, che ripercorre oltre cinquant'anni di fervida e incessante attività.0Toscani pone da sempre l'attenzione sull'atto di "immaginare" come momento di scelta consapevole del mestiere di fotografo. Capace di spingere e spingersi con creatività nella meravigliosa ricerca della scoperta e della conquista, usa trasgressione e provocazione, forze che appartengono all'arte, e fa della diversità un valore contro l'omologazione e per una libera espressione della comunicazione.0L'esposizione - la prima del fotografo in Svizzera - ruota attorno al tema dell'immaginazione.0Oliviero Toscani ha creato immagini e campagne per marchi e aziende come United Colors of Benetton, Esprit, Chanel, Robe di Kappa, Fiorucci, Prénatal, Jesus Jeans, Inter, Snai, Toyota, Artemide, Ministero italiano dell'Ambiente e della Salute, Croce Rossa Italiana, Regione Calabria, Fondazione Umberto Veronesi, Biennale di Venezia, Federazione dell'industria orologiera svizzera, Philarmonie di Parigi, Cosmoprof, InStyle, Nicopanda, Best Company e moltissimi altri, affrontando i grandi temi contemporanei di interesse sociale, in particolare la pena di morte, l'AIDS, l'anoressia, la violenza contro le donne, il randagismo e la sicurezza stradale. Ha collaborato con le testate più prestigiose, fra cui Elle, Vogue, GQ, Harper's Bazaar, Esquire, Stern e Libération. Ha inoltre ideato e diretto Colors, il primo giornale globale al mondo, e ha concepito e diretto Fabrica, centro di ricerca sulla comunicazione.00Exhibition: M.A.X., Chiasso, Switzerland (10.10.2017- 21.01.2018).

No two alike : Karl Blossfeldt, Francis Bruguière, Thomas Ruff
editor: Ulrike Meyer Stump
Vienna : Verlag für moderne Kunst, 2018
No Two Alike' documents an exhibition curated by Ulrike Meyer Stump as part of Cincinnati's 2018 FotoFocus Biennial, with its general theme "Open Archive." The exhibition restages the historic encounter between Karl Blossfeldt's plant photographs and Francis Bruguière's light designs held at the Warren Gallery in London in 1929 and juxtaposes it with the Photograms and Negatives series by contemporary artist Thomas Ruff. The combination of Blossfeldt's biomorphism and Bruguière's abstraction offers clues for the understanding of British modernism, and offers insight into the role photography and photobooks played in the British avant-garde. Throughout his career, Thomas Ruff has expressed great interest in the history of photography and has repeatedly shown a special affinity with Blossfeldt (particularly in his Negatives series); Bruguière's abstract light compositions, on the other hand, have strong formal ties to Ruff's photograms. "No two alike" expresses the three artists' mutual interest in the variant as a creative principle, also advancing the idea that each of these bodies of work presents a variant of the other.00Exhibition: Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati, USA (21.09.2018 - 13.01.2019).

Rolf M. Aagaard : snow, shadows of the wind
Aagard, Rolf M. photographer,
Bielefeld, Germany : Kerber Verlag, 
The poetry of snow: The photographs of Rolf M. Aagaard shows how beautiful and poetic snow can be. At first glance they look like pictures of sand made in the heat of the desert. But there are all compositions of snow, formed by the wind with help from the low winter sun, in the mountains Hardangervidda in the South of Norway during the last 10 years. The landscapes are naturally melted and gone forever. Sometimes only lasting one hour depending on the wind and the suns movement. The forms may disappear and be completely different in a short time and naturally need the low winter sun. The new publication shows this very special artistic work of Rolf M. Aagaard and proves that snow has so many different faces.

Self-exposure : an unauthorized autobiography
Gibson, Ralph, 1939- author,
London : HENI Publishing, 
"Self-Exposure is the autobiography of celebrated American art photographer Ralph Gibson. With his 80th birthday on the horizon in January 2019 and a career spanning over 50 years, Gibson is at a point of reflection in his life and work and decided to put pen to paper. Writing in candid prose, Gibson takes the reader through his life and career from his earliest memories of growing up in California (the son of a Hollywood director, Gibson's childhood is touched by the old glamour of the silver screen: the likes of Orson Welles and Rita Hayworth make appearances) to his time in the navy and his continuous love affair with photography. Gibson's memories are filled with rich characters and period details. Often moving, the narratives of his at times troublesome childhood provide a rich background to the charismatic artist Gibson has become. Gibson covers a range of topics such as music, Catholicism, his wife, Mary Jane, and a long line of fellow artists and photographers such as Dorothea Lange and Robert Frank. His ruminations on his life so far display a deep, thoughtful understanding and self-awareness that make this book a fascinating read in itself as well as an illuminating companion to his work. What emerges is an insight into the mind of an incredible, highly decorated artist. Evocatively illustrated, Self-Exposure presents Gibson's life story alongside his photographic work. Designed and produced in close collaboration with Gibson, this large."--Amazon.

Greenfield-Sanders, Timothy, author

Director's foreword / Sara Pasti -- Foreword / Emma Morcone -- Introduction / Anastasia James -- Timothy Greenfield-Sanders in conversation with Anastasia James -- Portraits -- Glossary.
"Featuring forty portraits by photographer and filmmaker Timothy-Greenfield Sanders (b. 1952 Miami Beach, FL), The Trans List explores the range of experiences lived by Americans who identify as transgender (an umbrella term for people whose gender identity does not conform to that typically associated with the sex they were assigned at birth). Transgender, transsexual, genderqueer, gender-fluid, and non-binary are just a few of the multitude of self-identifiers in the trans community. Through his portraiture, Greenfield-Sanders provides a platform to a diverse group of individuals to tell their stories of their experience with identity, family, career, love, struggle, and accomplishment."--Dorsky Museum website.
