"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. - Features interviews with notable photographers including: Mary Ellen Mark, Carl Mydans, O. Winston Link, and Adam Newman - Covers a wide array of photographic fields such as photojournalism, fine art, and fashion. - Listen to the audio of many of the featured interviews on the book's companion website!"-- Provided by publisher.

"Tant par l'ampleur de son érudition que par la diversité des champs intellectuels (philosophie, psychanalyse, psychiatrie), artistiques (littérature, théâtre, opéra, peinture...), historiques (de la mythologie grecque à nos jours) et géographiques (Europe, Amérique, Asie...) parcourus, défrichés, analysés, ce livre explore un thème qui traverse plus ou moins explicitement la culture mondiale.

Un monument d'hommage à la création, où se succèdent analyses textuelles et perspectives transversales, plongées dans les oeuvres et panoramas sur des sujets universels."--P. [4] of cover.

"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.

"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 an insight into 18th century Spanish architecture in English"-- Provided by publisher.

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.

  • Space of Poetic Allegory. Translating The Divine Comedy : Terragni's Danteum as a Projection of Meaning Across Symbolic Forms
  • Space of Narrative Structure. The Shaping of Romeo and Juliet : Eisenman's Moving Arrows Eros and Other Errors

  • Space of Montage. Movement, Assemblage, and Appropriation in Koolhaas' Kunsthal.
"This book considers ideas from one medium that might have been appropriated and transformed by others; highlighting their uniqueness and limitations. More specifically, this book addresses the manner in which this translation occurs across different forms of creation, construction, and expression. The intention is to address broader questions of representation and construction of meaning across media that eventually impact processes of design formulation. By integrating knowledge and modes of thinking from multiple means of expression, they are able to advance their understanding in ways that would be impossible through a unitary line of inquiry"-- Provided by publisher.

  • Writing the Project of Architecture
  • Drawing the Lines of Theory
  • A Multifaceted Mirror, Drawing's Different Faces
  • Drawing as a Manifold, Ever-Shifting Spectacle, Coalescing Theory and Practice.
"When did drawing become an integral part of architecture? Among several architects and artists who brought about this change during the Renaissance, Francesco di Giorgio Martini's ideas on drawing recorded in his Trattati di architettura, ingegneria e arte militare (1475-1490) are significant. Francesco suggests that drawing is linked to the architect's imagination and central in conveying images and ideas to others. Starting with the broader edges of Francesco's written work and steadily penetrating into the fantastic world of his drawings, the book examines his singular formulation of the act of drawing and its significance in the context of the Renaissance. The book concludes with speculations on how Francesco's work is relevant to us at the onset of another major shift in architecture caused by the proliferation of digital media"-- Provided by publisher.

  • 3. Traps and Devices

  • 5. Participation and the Gift
  • 6. Work and Life
  • 7. Fields and Labs

"In recent decades, the dialogue between art and anthropology has been both intense and controversial. Art, Anthropology and the Gift provides a much-needed and comprehensive overview of this dialogue, whilst also exploring the reciprocal nature of the two subjects through practice, theory and politics. Fully engaging with anthropology and art theory, this book innovatively argues that art and anthropology don't just share methodologies, but also deeper intellectual, theoretical and even political concerns, inviting scholars and students alike to look at this contentious relationship in a more critical light. One of the central arguments of the book is that the problem of the 'gift' has been central to both anthropological and artistic practice. This very idea connects the different chapters on topics including aesthetics, politics, participation and fieldwork"-- Provided by publisher.

Art, Anthropology and the Gift provides a much-needed and comprehensive overview of this dialogue, whilst also exploring the reciprocal nature of the two subjects through practice, theory and politics. Fully engaging with anthropology and art theory, Art, Anthropology and the Gift innovatively argues that art and anthropology don't just share methodologies, but also deeper intellectual, theoretical and even political concerns, inviting scholars and students alike to look at this contentious relationship in a more critical light. One of the central arguments of the book is that the problem of the 'gift' has been central to both anthropological and artistic practice. This very idea connects the different chapters on topics including aesthetics, politics, participation and fieldwork. Each chapter is organized around an introductory case study or example, from which the author draws his theoretical discussion. Accessibly written, this is key reading for scholars and students in both fields"-- Provided by publisher.
