The majority of photographic images today are recorded and viewed digitally, rather than on film and paper. Amateurs, photojournalists and commercial photographers alike rarely produce material objects as the final step in their photographic process, making photographs in the form of physical objects increasingly scarce. But what happens to personal and collective memories when photographic images are not instantly accessible on the face of physical objects? How is society's relationship to memory changing as digital photographs become the norm? A number of contemporary artists are making work that suggests the potential consequences of photography's latest metamorphosis. Two main strategies emerge: some artists dig deep into photographic materials as though searching for the locus of memory, and others incorporate found photographs into their work as virtual talismans of recollection. Both highlight the presence of the photographic object and function as self-conscious meditations on photography's ongoing reorganization of our mental and physical landscape. 'A Matter of Memory' features the work of more than 30 artists including Thomas Barrow, Matthew Brandt, Ellen Carey, John Chiara, Adam Fuss, Robert Heinecken, Leslie Hewitt, Kenneth Josephson, Laura Letinsky, Chris McCaw, Diane Meyer, Yola Monakhov Stockton, Vik Muniz, Floris Neusüss, Marlo Pascual, Matthew Porter, Taryn Simon, Michelle Stuart, Kunié Sugiura, Bertien van Manen, James Welling and Augusta Wood.

Art and the Internet is a much-needed visual survey of art influenced by, situated on and taking the subject of the internet over the last two and a half decades. From the early 1990s the internet has had multiple roles in art, not least in defining several new genres of practitioners, from early networked art to new forms of interactive and participatory works, but also because it is the great aggregator of all art, past and present. Art and the Internet examines the legacy of the internet on art, and, importantly, illuminates how artists and institutions are using it and why. Art and the Internet features newly commissioned essays about the history, development and future of art and the internet from leading writers and curators in the field. By breaking down art on and about the internet into distinct forms as chapters - such as "Net.Art", "social media influenced art", "Post-Fordist art", "activist art", "surveillance-related work", "post-internet art", "internet-enabled participatory, interactive and video art" - the book deals with these challenging categories, with each illustrated by the work of leading practitioners. A selection of reprinted essays and manifestos, along with new interview material, offers an alternative chronology of the internet via the changing 'of the time' opinions from the late 1980s until today. The newly commissioned essays foreground the wider cultural context of the subject, laying out a longer history in art, design, technology and software that pre-dates the internet's wider use, illuminating the cultural conditions and modes that made way for contemporary art using the internet. The changing role of the artist online is discussed. A concluding essay examines how the multifarious global art worlds use the internet, from activism to voyeurism to marketing, featuring organisations such as Rhizome and e-flux and their predecessors, illuminating how the internet has irrevocably altered the art world as a whole. As such, Art and the Internet is an essential book for all those interested in art whether directly involved in internet art or not.

This new edition of The Photographic Image in Digital Culture explores the condition of photography after some 20 years of remediation and transformation by digital technology. Through ten especially commissioned essays, by some of the leading scholars in the field of contemporary photography studies, a range of key topics are discussed including: the meaning of software in the production of photograph; the nature of networked photographs; the screen as the site of photographic display; the simulation of photography in the videogame; photography, ubiquitous computing and technologies of ambient intelligence; developments in vernacular photography and social media; the photograph and the digital archive; the curation and exhibition of the networked photograph; the dominance of the image bank in commercial and advertising photography; the complexities of citizen photojournalism. A recurring theme addressed throughout is the nature of 'photography after photography' and the paradoxical nature of the medium in the 21st century; a time when the traditional technology of photography has become defunct while there is more 'photography' than ever. This is an ideal book for students studying photography and digital media.

The recent boom in digital camera sales has dramatically revived interest in photography. More people are taking pictures than ever before, from serious hobbyists using digital SLRs to rank amateurs using cell phones. Most photography schools now teach both "wet" and digital photography, but many programs are abandoning their darkrooms entirely, requiring students to only use digital cameras. In DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY: A BASIC MANUAL, bestselling author Henry Horenstein provides step-by-step instructions, full-page prints, and line illustrations to illuminate every aspect of digital photography, from exposure controls and shutter speed to image editing, printing methods, and even file storage. Based in the same clear and comprehensive teaching techniques that made Horenstein's Black and White Photography a perennial classic, DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY is essential reading for photo enthusiasts who wish to bridge traditional darkroom technique with the digital present and future.

From early amateur snapshots to today's advanced digital images, photography has been the perfect means to record people's lives. This provocative book explores the complex and varied ways that five contemporary photographers - Tina Barney, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Nan Goldin, Sally Mann, and Larry Sultan - use their own daily experiences as inspiration for their art. Each of these artists has created highly personal, shifting, and intriguing visions of his or her life. The works range from Tina Barney's orchestrated depictions of her friends and family in affluent New England settings to Nan Goldin's unabashed portrayal of intimate, and often brutally honest, moments. Sally Mann turned to her children and their surroundings as her subject, and Larry Sultan has accomplished something similar in his depictions of his parents. Philip-Lorca diCorcia offers up his 'storybook life' in photographs that, like others in this group, span nearly twenty years. "So the Story Goes" is arranged in portfolio format and features beautiful colour reproductions of about twenty photographs by each artist. With an introductory essay that examines the development of personal narrative in photography, as well as insightful entries on each artist, the book analyzes how these works tell a life's story.

  • I walk into a white room

  • Your creative DNA
  • Harness your memory
  • Before you can think out of the box, you have to start with a box

  • The long run.
Creativity is not a gift from the gods, says Twyla Tharp, it is the product of preparation and effort, and it's within reach of everyone who wants to achieve it. Here, Tharp takes the lessons she has learned in her remarkable thirty-five-year career and shares them with you, whatever creative impulses you follow--whether you are a painter, composer, writer, director, choreographer, or, for that matter, a businessperson working on a deal, a chef developing a new dish, a mother wanting her child to see the world anew. When Tharp is at a creative dead end, she relies on a lifetime of exercises to help her get out of the rut, and The Creative Habit contains more than thirty of them to ease the fears of anyone facing a blank beginning and to open the mind to new possibilities.--From publisher description.

The first full-length translation in English of an essential work of postmodernism.The publication of "Simulacra et Simulation" in 1981 marked Jean Baudrillard's first important step toward theorizing the postmodern. Moving away from the Marxist/Freudian approaches that had concerned him earlier, Baudrillard developed in this book a theory of contemporary culture that relies on displacing economic notions of cultural production with notions of cultural expenditure.Baudrillard uses the concepts of the simulacra - the copy without an original - and simulation. These terms are crucial to an understanding of the postmodern, to the extent that they address the concept of mass reproduction and reproduceability that characterizes our electronic media culture.Baudrillard's book represents a unique and original effort to rethink cultural theory from the perspective of a new concept of cultural materialism, one that radically redefines postmodern formulations of the body.
