This book is a compilation of interviews and essays that cover a broad range of photographers and photographic disciplines. Each photographer profiled made a living by concentrating on a specific aspect of the craft, but in doing so transcended their livelihood to become recognized for more than the type of images they created. Each had a distinct "style, " creative approach, dedication to the craft, point of view about themselves and the world. These interviews were conducted during a seminal period in the shift from film to digital and from print reproduction to global distribution on the Internet. Just like their photographs continue to inspire today, now these pros' words can live on as an invaluable reference for the photographers of the future. The truth and wisdom in this collection transcend time and technology.

Book
287 pages : illustrations (some color) ; 28 cm
Exploring how the universal visual language of geometric abstraction was influenced by different societies, this volume also demonstrates how the movement's revolutionary aesthetic continues to impact culture around the globe. It traces a century of abstract art from 1915 to the present day, celebrating the accomplishments of both men and women and includes sculpture, film, photography and painting. Organised around four distinct themes - communication, architectonics, utopia and everyday life - the book presents a chronological survey from Russia to Europe, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, Central America, Africa, South America, and the US. Each of the 100 works is featured in double-page spreads with brief artist biographies. Essays by Tanya Barson, Briony Fer, Tom McDonough, and Joshua Jiang, contextualize the various geographic and aesthetic stages of the development of geometric abstraction. Published in association with Whitechapel Gallery, London.

  • Hamaya Hiroshi's "return to Japan": documenting the folk in snow country
  • "Uncanny, hypermodern Japaneseness": Okamoto Tarō and the search for prehistoric modernism
  • Ise Shrine and a modernist construction of Japanese tradition
  • Paradise lost, paradise regained: Tōmatsu Shōmei's photographic engagement with Okinawa
  • "Young female nomads of Tokyo": imagined migration through Tokyo in the days before the bubble burst.
"Allegories of time and space" explores efforts by leading photographers, artists, architects, and commercial designers to re-envision Japanese cultural identity during the turbulent years between the Asia Pacific War and the bursting of the economic bubble in the 1990s. This search for a 'cultural home'; was a matter of broad public concern and each of the artists under consideration in this volume engaged a wide audience through mass media.These cosmopolitan dreams may seemuntethered from their Japanese cultural context, and yet, there were threads that linked the 'urban nomad'; with earlier efforts to situate contemporary Japanese cultural identity intime and space. These artists found it necessaryto establish distance from their immediate surroundings temporally or geographically in order to gain some perspective on Japan's rapidly changing society. They all shared an allegorical vision, a capacity to make time and space malleable, to see the present in the past and to find an irreducible cultural center at Japan's geographical periphery. Their work enhanced efforts to redefine tradition in contemporary terms and, by doing so, promoted a future that would be both modern and uniquely Japanese.--Publisher's web page.

Architects have long operated based on the assumption that a building is 'complete' once construction has finished. Striving to create a perfect building, they wish for it to stay in its original state indefinitely, viewing any subsequent alterations as unintended effects or the results of degeneration. The ideal is for a piece of architecture to remain permanently perfect and complete. This contrasts sharply with reality where changes take place as people move in, requirements change, events happen, and building materials are subject to wear and tear. Rumiko Handa argues it is time to correct this imbalance. Using examples ranging from the Roman Coliseum to Japanese tea rooms, she draws attention to an area that is usually ignored: the allure of incomplete, imperfect and impermanent architecture. By focusing on what happens to buildings after they are 'complete', she shows that the 'afterlife' is in fact the very 'life' of a building. However, the book goes beyond theoretical debate. Addressing professionals as well as architecture students and educators, it persuades architects of the necessity to anticipate possible future changes and to incorporate these into their original designs.

The history of post Second World War reconstruction has recently become an important field of research around the world; Alternative Visions of Post-War Reconstruction is a provocative work that questions the orthodoxies of twentieth century design history. This book provides a key critical statement on mid-twentieth century urban design and city planning, focused principally upon the period between the start of the Second World War to the mid-sixties. The various figures and currents covered here represent a largely overlooked field within the history of 20th century urbanism. In this period while certain modernist practices assumed an institutional role for post-war reconstruction and flourished into the mainstream, such practices also faced opposition and criticism leading to the production of alternative visions and strategies. Spanning from a historically-informed modernism to the increasing presence of urban conservation the contributors examine these alternative approaches to the city and its architecture.

9. Amnesiac hide [2015]

Book
175 p. : ill. (chiefly color) ; 23 cm
Mike Nelson's newly commissioned installation, commissioned on behalf of Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver, and The Power Plant, Toronto, presents its audience with the notion of the lone traveller. Drawing on archetypes such as the fur trapper, the pioneering explorer, the Beatnik and the biker, Mike Nelson offers a new reading of the lone traveller, focusing on the significance of these characters in the context of masculinity and spirituality. Nelson is best known for his architectural installations, which unfold as narrative structures, where the viewer moves through seemingly abandoned rooms devoid of figures. This publication will draw out Nelson's frequent return to the figure, namely the archetypal lone wanderer, who underlays much of his work whether as an implied trace or as sculptural assemblages. While drawing from a wide range of Nelson's work, the book will spotlight The Amnesiacs, a serial work begun by the artist in 1996 and revisited for these exhibitions through two new commissions. To accompany this new body of work, which comprises Nelson's first solo shows in Canadian institutions, the artist is also producing an ambitious publication that presents developmental imagery alongside installation shots of the new installations.

To what extent did mythological figures such as Circe and Medea influence the representation of the powerful 'oriental' enchantress in modern Western art? What role did the ancient gods and heroes play in the construction of the imaginary worlds of the modern fantasy genre? What is the role of undead creatures like zombies and vampires in mythological films? Looking across the millennia, from the distrust of ancient magic and oriental cults, which threatened the new-born Christian religion, to the revival and adaptation of ancient myths and religion in the arts centuries later, this book offers an original analysis of the reception of ancient magic and the supernatural, across a wide variety of different media - from comics to film, from painting to opera. Working in a variety of fields across the globe, the authors of these essays deconstruct certain scholarly traditions by proposing original interdisciplinary approaches and collaborations, showing to what extent the visual and performing arts of different periods interlink and shape cultural and social identities.

"Puisant aux sources préhistoriques de sa terre natale, la Catalogne; comme aux splendeurs de l'âge médiéval, l'art de Boix-Vives semble embrasser les siècles avec humilité et hauteur de vue. Sa recréation, qui n'est ni moderne, ni ancienne, se nourrit de son arbre généalogique pour inventer un nouvel espace contemporain. Elle obtient ensuite confirmation lors de ses pérégrinations dans les Alpes, où il retrouve là un art populaire, paysan, schématique et coloré qui entre en résonance avec son univers catalan. Au soir de sa vie, c'est en descendant de la montagne que Boix-Vives peint ce qu'il faut bien appeler des révélations. C'est vers le contenu originel de l'art de Boix-Vives qu'il faut porter sa recherche, du côté de la naissance et du plaisir, si l'on veut comprendre la fantastique liberté créatrice de cette oeuvre."--P. [4] of cover.

  • Introduction: Architectural Temperance 1. Spain and Rome in the Early Eighteenth Century, 2. Italian Grandeur, 3. Metropoli Dell' Universo, 4. Iberian Architects in Rome, 5. Santissima Trinita Degli Spagnoli in Via Condotti, 6. Bourbon Patronage and Italian Influence, 7. The Written Word and the Artifact.
  • (source: Nielsen Book Data)
Architectural Temperance examines relations between Bourbon Spain and papal Rome (1700-1759) through the lens of cultural politics. With a focus on key Spanish architects sent to study in Rome by the Bourbon Kings, the book also discusses the establishment of a program of architectural education at the newly founded Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando in Madrid. Victor Deupi explores why a powerful nation like Spain would temper its own building traditions with the more cosmopolitan trends associated with Rome; often at the expense of its own national and regional traditions. Through the inclusion of previously unpublished documents and images that shed light on the theoretical debates which shaped eighteenth-century architecture in Rome and Madrid, Architectural Temperance provides readers with new insights into the cultural history of early modern Spain.

Architecture and Armed Conflict is the first multi-authored scholarly book to address this theme from a comparative, interdisciplinary perspective. By bringing together specialists from a range of relevant fields, and with knowledge of case studies across time and space, it provides the first synthetic body of research on the complex, multifaceted subject of architectural destruction in the context of conflict. The book addresses several specific research questions: How has the destruction of buildings and landscapes figured in recent historical conflicts, and how have people and states responded to it? How has the destruction of architecture been represented in different historical periods, and to what ends? What are the relationships between the destruction of architecture and the destruction of art, particularly iconoclasm? If architectural destruction is a salient feature of many armed conflicts, how does it feature in post-conflict environments? What are the relationships between architectural destruction and processes of restoration, recreation or replacement? Considering multiple conflicts, multiple time periods, and multiple locations allows this international cohort of authors to provide an essential primer for this crucial topic.
