Bettina Pousttchi : world time clock : Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden
editor, Rhys Conlon
Berlin : Hatje Cantz Verlag [2017]
Bettina Pousttchi (*1971 in Mainz) is one of the most outstanding German artists of her generation. 'World Time Clock', on which she worked for eight years, is her most extensive project to date: the photographer travelled around the world in several stages, taking pictures of a public clock at five minutes before two at selected sites in twenty-four different time zones. The cities she visited included Cape Town, Dubai, Tashkent, New York, Sydney, and Mexico City. An exhibition of this world-spanning work on the political and social organization of time and space premiered at the Smithsonian Institution?s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C. The complete twenty-four part, large-format photo series was on display for ten months, in a 360-degree installation on an entire floor of the museum. The present catalogue documents this remarkable exhibition at one of the leading museums in the United States.00Exhibition: Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington D.C., United States (09.06.2016-29.05.2017).

Tina Barney
Barney, Tina, writer of added text
New York : Rizzoli, 2017
Introduction / Tina Barney -- Home -- Abroad -- Performance -- Small towns -- Athletic rituals -- Youth -- Afterword / Peter Galassi.

Internationally acclaimed American artist Tina Barney burst on the scene in the early 1980s with her provocative yet intimate photographs capturing the domestic lives and social rituals of the elite. In choosing colour over black and white and producing large-format prints, she broke the tradition of established fine-art photography at the time. Her unstintingly honest portrayal of her subjects, many of whom are family and friends, remains completely original. Straddling the line between candid and choreographed photography, between engagement and detachment, she captures her subjects in a range of rarefied settings, both private and public. Her iconic tableaux suggest rich narratives or, as she has written, the synchronization of psychological, emotional, and sociological plots that bind a family together. Long awaited, this lavish survey is the most definitive book to date on Barney s work.

Robert Lebeck : 1968
Lebeck, Robert, photographer
Göttingen : Steidl, [2018]
This book presents the diverse photo series Robert Lebeck made in 1968, which form an alternative view of the year when social conflict and personal rebellion against authoritarian traditions found their passionate and often violent expression. Upheaval, protest, perseverance and failure themes that are not always explored in retrospective mythicizing views of 1968 are clearly expressed in Lebeck's photos, taken in locations from New York to Bogotá and Wolfsburg. Whether dealing with 'Divorced Women', Rudi Dutschke in Prague, Robert Kennedy's funeral or Joseph Beuys at documenta, contemporary history encounters the integrity of photo reportage in Lebeck's work. "The year of the student protests took place without me," Lebeck recalls of 1968 in his autobiography. When the barricades were burning in Paris, I was working in Florida on a series about two murdered co-eds; when students began protesting in front of the Springer Building, I was photographing the christening of Hildegard Knef's baby; and when Russian troops marched into Prague, I was accompanying the pope's visit to Bogotá.? A closer examination of Lebeck's contact sheets, prints and reportages made during this epoch-making year on behalf of Stern, then one of Germany's highest-circulation magazines, and presented in this book, reveal how Lebeck's photos, despite his own assessment, capture the social changes of the time.

Gabriele Basilico : entropía y espacio urbano = Entropy and urban space
Madrid : PhotoEspaña, [2017]
Gabriele Basilico photographs places which are suspended in time, without a history or a future, and this indetermination is precisely where their beauty and interest lie. His images go forward and reverse between nature and urban, thaht neutral space left in the middle, those terrain-vagues where city planning has succumbed to the conurbation's inherent expansion. These are photographs that reflect upon the end of the industrial cycle, upon ruins--both physical and ideological--of modernity, They are an attemt to understand a new environment arisen form the ashes of industrial spaces and compact cities. Basilico's work turns abandoned industrial buildings, chaotic conurbations and contemporary ruins into monuments of post-modern landscape.

Henri Cartier-Bresson, interviews and conversations, 1951-1998
Cartier-Bresson, Henri, 1908-2004, interviewee
New York, N.Y. : Aperture, 2017
Presented for the first time in English, this volume brings together twelve notable interviews and conversations with Henri Cartier-Bresson carried out between 1951 and 1998. While many of us are acquainted with his images, there are so few texts available by Cartier-Bresson on his photographic process. These verbal, primary accounts capture the spirit of the master photographer and serve as a lasting document of his life and work, which has inspired generations of photographers and artists.

American witness : the art and life of Robert Frank
Smith, R. J., 1959- author
New York, NY : Da Capo Press, 2017
"Brush" -- Flags and mirrors -- A step away from them -- Road trips and mind trips -- Early morning in the universe -- Like jumping in the water -- First thought, best thought -- The network of human mayonnaise -- Touched by the hand of God -- New projects -- An impressive bunch of guys -- Finally, reality -- A Lucite spaceship -- Sick of goodby's -- Bobby hot dog.

" ... American Witness is the first comprehensive look at the life of a man who's as mysterious and evasive as he is prolific and gifted. Leaving his rigid Switzerland for the more fluid United States in 1947, Frank found himself at the red-hot social center of bohemian New York in the '50s and '60s, becoming friends with everyone from Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, and Peter Orlovsky to photographer Walker Evans, actor Zero Mostel, painter Willem de Kooning, filmmaker Jonas Mekas, Bob Dylan, writer Rudy Wurlitzer, jazz musicians Ornette Coleman and Charles Mingus, and more. Frank roamed the country with his young family, taking roughly 27,000 photographs and collecting 83 of them into what is still his most famous work: The Americans. His was an America nobody had seen before, and if it was harshly criticized upon publication for its portrait of a divided country, the collection gradually grew to be recognized as a transformative American vision. And then he turned his back on certain success, giving up photography to reinvent himself as a film and video maker. Frank helped found the American independent cinema of the 1960s and made a legendary film with the Rolling Stones. Today, the nonagenarian is an embodiment of restless creativity and a symbol of what it costs to remain original in America, his life defined by never repeating himself, never being satisfied. American Witness is a portrait of a singular artist and the country that he saw."--Jacket.

Lower East and Upper West : New York City photographs 1957-1968
Brand, Jonathan, 1933- photographer
Brooklyn, NY : powerHouse Books, 2018
Foreword -- Introduction -- Lower East -- Upper West -- List of photographs -- About the artist.

The vibrant street life and people of New York City's Lower East Side and Upper West Side in the 1950s and 1960s are presented in this book of black-and-white photographs by Jonathan Brand. A census taker and later an advertising copywriter, Brand chronicled life as he encountered it on his walks through the city. The book offers 104 striking images of New Yorkers engaged in everyday pursuits, from the Bowery to Riverside Park, juice stands and barbershops to Theatre in the Streets. With an introduction by Julia Dolan, The Minor White Curator of Photography at the Portland Art Museum, Oregon, this is the first book from a photographer who developed his art alongside many of the best-known in his discipline. Brand's photographs capture the energy, odd juxtapositions and intimate moments of life in mid-century New York City.

Encounters with art
Felten, Wolfgang, author
Munich : Hirmer, [2017]
"People who know something about art also know how irritating talking about art can often be. In this book the connoisseur Wolfgang Felten undertakes to reveal artworks as areas for experience. From a Khmer Buddha statue or an African mask to the photograph of a façade or a drawing by Alberto Giacometti - the artist's very personal commitment is to explaining the phenomenon: how it can be that inanimate material can bring forth something that is alive, that inspires and moves, and to understand why this happens. He appeals to our willingness to see; independently, intensively and in a way that remains open for new experiences"--Publisher's website.

This book explores a once-popular picture story by Gordon Parks and the extraordinary chain of events it prompted. Published in 'Life' magazine in June 1961 as 'Poverty: Freedom?s Fearful Foe', this empathetic photo-essay profiled the da Silva family, living in a hillside favela near a wealthy enclave of Rio de Janeiro. Focused primarily on the eldest son Flavio, an industrious twelve-year-old suffering from crippling asthma, Parks? story elicited more than 3,000 letters and $25,000 in donations from 'Life' readers to help the family and the favela.0In Brazil the story sparked controversy; one news magazine, 'O Cruzeiro', retaliated against 'Life', sending photographer Henri Ballot to document poverty in New York City. Undeterred, 'Life' embarked on a multi-year "rescue" effort that involved moving Flavio to a Denver hospital, relocating the family to a new home and administering funds to support the favela. The story, as well as Parks? relationship to Flavio, continued to develop over many years. The details of this extraordinary history provide a fascinating example of US exceptionalism during the early 1960s and a revealing look inside the power and cultural force of the "Great American Magazine".00Exhibition: Instituto Moreira Salles, São Paolo, Brazil (02.12.2017-28.01.2018) / Instituto Moreira Salles, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (06.02.-29.04.2018) / Ryerson Image Centre, Toronto, Canada (September 2018) / The J.

David Goldblatt : structures of dominion and democracy
edited by Karolina Ziebinska-Lewandowska
Göttingen : Steidl, [2018]
Foreword / Serge Lasvignes and Bernard Blistène -- Why and what / David Goldblatt -- A question mark in the landscape: the politics of David Goldblatt's photography / Ivor Powell -- Photography as an act of thinking / Karolina Ziebinska-Lewandowska -- Searching -- On the mines -- Some Afrikaners photographed -- Kas Maine -- Joburg -- Particulars -- In Boksburg -- The transported of KwaNdebele -- Structures.

This book is a selective retrospective of David Goldblatt, a key figure in twentieth-century and contemporary photography. Starting from his earliest photographic searchings, it shows the foundations of Goldblatt's critical passion for photography, his social sensitivity and political consciousness. Also to see are his most recent photographs, always in tight relation to the changing situation in South Africa, his native country. Structures of Dominion and Democracy assembles many of Goldblatt's influential series including "On the Mines," "Some Afrikaners" and "Structures" with some less well-known including "Kas Maine," and reconstructs the history of their first publication in the international press. Reproducing original handmade dummies and working plates, the process of bookmaking and other diverse applications of these often iconic images are laid bare. In addition to texts by the photographer, essays by Ivor Powell and Karolina Ziebinska-Lewandowska explore Goldblatt's work in the context of South African political and cultural history, as well as his contribution to the wider history of photography.
