  • Where Men Hide

    Karton Kapak
    "If you ask men if they spend any time hiding, they usually look at you as if you're nuts. 'What, me hide?' But if you ask women whether men hide, they immediately know what you mean." -- from Where Men Hide Where Men Hide is a spirited tour of the dark and often dirty places men go to find comfort, camaraderie, relaxation, and escape. Ken Ross's striking photographs and James Twitchell's lively analysis trace the evolution of these virtual caves, and question why they are rapidly disappearing.Ross documents both traditional and contemporary male haunts, such as bars, barbershops, lodges, pool halls, strip clubs, garages, deer camps, megachurches, the basement Barcalounger, and Twitchell examines their provenance, purpose, and appeal. He finds that for centuries men have met with each other in underground lairs and clubhouses to conduct business or, in the case of strip clubs and the modern rec room, to bond and indulge in shady entertainments. In these secret dens, certain rules are abandoned while others are obeyed. However, Twitchell sees this less as exclusionary behavior and more as the result of social anxiety: when women want to get together, they just do it; when men get together, it's a production.Drawing on literary, historical, and pop cultural sources, Twitchell connects the places men hide with figures like Hemingway and Huck Finn, Frederick Jackson Turner's theory of the American frontier, and the mythological interpretations of Joseph Campbell and Robert Bly. Instead of blaming the disappearance of the man-cave solely on feminism, simple fair play, or the demands of Title IX, Twitchell believes this evaporation is due as well to the rise of solitary pursuits such as driving, watching television, and playing videogames.By blending together anecdote, research, and keen observation, Ross and Twitchell bring this little-discussed and controversial phenomenon to light.

  • Children of Abraham/Les Enfants D'Abraham (French Edition)

    Children of Abraham/Les Enfants D'Abraham (French Edition)

    Karton Kapak
    Invited by the Nobel Peace Center in Oslo to unfold a striking exhibition, Abbas gathers his work on the three monotheistic religions for the first time in its catalogue, with written extracts from his travel diaries. From 1978 to 1980, Abbas covered the Iranian Revolution. Later, from Xinjiang to Morocco, from London to Timbuktu, he photographed the daily lives of Muslims, the rituals of their faith, and witnessed the emergence of some more radical voices. Driven by a desire to understand the internal tensions at work within Muslim societies, he exposed the conflict between a rising political ideology looking for inspiration in a mythical past and the universal desire for modernity and democracy. From 1995 to 2000, Abbas photographed Christian communities throughout the world with the same critical eye. On both journeys, he also recorded the lives of Jewish communities. Heralding the dawn of the “Third Millennium,” the year 2000 seemed to impose itself as the universal calendar, and therefore a symbol of Western civilization. That year, Jews celebrated the year 5760 and Muslims the year 1420. Abraham—“the first Jew”—is also claimed as a common ancestor by Christians and Muslims. Abbas has dedicated his work to the political and social coverage of the developing South. Since 1970, his work includes wars and revolutions in Biafra, Bangladesh, Ulster, Vietnam, the Middle East, Chile, Cuba, South Africa, and others. He is currently working on the clash of religions, defined as culture rather than faith, replacing political ideologies in the strategic struggles of the near future. Abbas has been a member of Magnum Photos since 1981.

  • Egypt: Stones of Light

    Egypt: Stones of Light

    Sert Kapak
    Adorning the temples, palaces, and monuments of the Nile River Valley, their inscrutable gazes look out across the millennia, bearing witness to the rise and fall of long-lost dynasties - just as they have witnessed the endless rise and fall of the sun. Timeless treasures of light and shadow, they are the sculpted stones of ancient Egypt. In this gorgeous book of images, photographer Herve Champollion portrays these ancient stones in natural light, creating a breathtaking pictorial history of one of the world's most fascinating ancient civilizations. Virtually all that is known of pharaonic times - from military campaigns to religious ceremonies to the everyday life of civilians - comes from these stones, which are captured by Champollion's lens in a range of settings, from the glowing red of sunrise, to the hard white light of midday, to the golden rays of sunset. Informative captions by noted scholar Diane Sarofim Harle enhance the images and help us to appreciate the grandeur of these "stones of light," which, through the ages, have beckoned visitors to come face to face with the divine.

  • In the Darkroom: An Illustrated Guide to Photographic Processes Before the Digital Age

    In the Darkroom: An Illustrated Guide to Photographic Processes Before the Digital Age

    Karton Kapak
    A concise introduction to the twenty-seven most common photographic and photomechanical processes, from albumen print to Woodburytype.Since the announcement of photography’s invention in 1839, various methods of making photographs have been practiced. Until the advent of digital photography at the end of the twentieth century, all of these methods required three elements: light-sensitive materials that behave predictably in response to light; chemicals that control and fix the action of light to create an image; and a support upon which the image rests. Photographers and others have continually explored and refined these basic requirements in their quest to expand the artistic and technological possibilities of photography. This book describes in a clear, accessible manner the main photographic and photomechanical processes (some still in practice) from the origins of the medium up to the time when the use of chemicals and a darkened room in which to process photographs was gradually superseded by the advent of digital photography. This elegant guide will prove invaluable to students, photographers, museum visitors, collectors, and anyone interested in the rich and fascinating history of photography. The book includes work by Eugène Atget, Robert Frank, Laura Gilpin, André Kertész, Helen Levitt, Robert Mapplethorpe, Eadweard Muybridge, Edward Steichen, Alfred Stieglitz, William Henry Fox Talbot, Andy Warhol, Edward Weston. 84 color photographs and illustrations

  • Milk and Melancholy

    Milk and Melancholy

    Sert Kapak
    Milk and Melancholy looks at milk through the lens of photography and from the angle of art. Specifically, it considers the milk splash in all its manifestations, representations, and variations, tracing the complex flow of the image in works ranging from Harold Edgerton's milk drop coronet to Jeff Wall's exploding milk carton. In Milk and Melancholy, Kenneth Hayes considers milk as corporate advertising's mustache of health; as the antiwine; as a complex mixture of fat, protein, corpuscles, lactose, chyle, and plasma that lacks darkness but lacks also the morally pure transparency of crystal; and as the luminous middle term between mercury's glare and water's transparency. He offers the first-ever history of the "knowledge of splashes," a history that brings together Goethe's theory of optics, the invention of the stroboscope, and the milk paint dripped by Jackson Pollock in the 1940s. Taking Edgerton's famous photograph as a starting point, Hayes tracks its influence in the infinite variety of representations of milk in the work of more than twenty artists including Pollock, Ed Ruscha, Barbara Kruger, Bruce Nauman, Adrian Piper, Martha Rosler, Mike Kelley, and William Wegman. More than 100 images, most of them in color and all of them exquisitely reproduced, illustrate Hayes's text. With this book, a splash in its own right, we will never see milk as a mere grocery item again. Milk and Melancholy is the first book from Prefix Institute of Contemporary Art, publisher of the award-winning magazine Prefix Photo.Artists include David Askevold, John Baldessari, Iain Baxter, Braco Dimitrijevic Harold Edgerton, General Idea, Gilbert and George, Jack Goldstein, Mike Kelley, Barbara Kruger, David Lamelas, Bruce Nauman, Adrian Piper, Sigmar Polke, Jackson Pollock Richard Prince, Martha Rosler, Ed Ruscha, Andres Serrano, Jeff Wall, William Wegman, A.

    Paris: Women & Bicycles

    Karton Kapak
    These days, bicycles are as much a part of the image of Paris as the Eiffel Tower. Through his photographs, Gil Garcetti captures fleeting figures, silhouettes that appear suddenly, turn a street corner and then disappear on the horizon. With an artist's eye, he goes beyond documentation and creates a delicate mosaic of our city on bicycles. This elegant work is at once tribute and testimony to the mix of commonplace and extraordinary featured on its pages.—Bertrand Delanoë, mayor of ParisIn Paris: Women & Bicycles, acclaimed photographer Gil Garcetti (Iron: Erecting the Walt Disney Concert Hall) focuses his attention on the head-turning sight of women as they ride their bicycles through the scenic streets of Paris. Dressed with a quintessential French flair, Parisian women of all ages commute to work, run errands, meet friends for coffee, catch a movie, or go to the theater. Through snow, rain, and summer heat they eschew cars, doing their part to clear the air in the city of light.

    Seeing Mexico Photographed: The Work of Horne, Casasola, Modotti, and Álvarez Bravo

    Sert Kapak
    This engrossing book presents the photographs of four historically engaged artists and explains what they reveal about the highly dramatic revolutionary and post-revolutionary period in Mexico from 1910 to 1935. The works of these photographers—American Walter H. Horne, Italian Tina Modotti, and Mexicans Agustín Víctor Casasola  and Manuel Álvarez Bravo—are discussed not just as windows onto events but as artworks that offer both objective reporting and stylized expression. The twenty-five years covered in the book encompass some of the most convulsive developments in Mexico, from the violence and cataclysmic changes wrought by the Mexican Revolution to the immense struggles to forge a new nation and a new government. During this period, the work of the four photographers—two primarily documentary,  one propagandistic, and one artistic and personal—enabled Mexicans to understand the forces that had brought their nation to armed conflict and social transformation.

    The Most Beautiful Villages of Ireland (The Most Beautiful Villages)

    Karton Kapak
    A visual trip through the Emerald Isle: an unparalleled portrayal of the rural beauty and charm of Ireland.Clusters of white cottages huddled between hills of an unbelievably rich green, villages of a single street, dazzling in their array of color washes and picturesque shop-fronts—such are the villages of Ireland, which to this day are living working communities. The most beautiful of these villages are captured here in Christopher Fitz-Simon’s sensitive commentaries and Hugh Palmer’s evocative photographs. This is a journey full of rural gems, some famous, others less so. Here are the colored coastal villages of Cork, their vibrant houses sloping down to a sea that so many Irish people crossed to found other communities in America. Here too are the stunning medieval churches of Roscommon and Galway; and the villages of Antrim, standing ruggedly in defiance of the northern seas. 285 full-color photographs
