Die Entdeckung des völlig im Verborgenen entstandenen Werks der 2009 im Alter von 83 Jahren verstorbenen Vivian Maier ist eine photohistorische Sensation. Aus Frankreich stammend, verdiente Vivian Maier ihren Lebensunterhalt in den 50er und 60er Jahren als Kindermädchen in Chicago und New York. Auf eigene Rechnung und Gefahr und außerhalb jeder Öffentlichkeit führte sie eine Art Doppelleben als Street Photographer. Ihr Entdecker John Maloof legt ihr Werk in unserem Buch erstmals einer staunenden internationalen Öffentlichkeit vor. Einige der Photographien wurden kürzlich in Deutschland in der Galerie von Hilaneh von Kories in Hamburg gezeigt.

Fotografie blieb in den Sozialwissenschaften bislang ein eher unterbelichtetes Thema, obwohl ihre Bedeutung in der Gegenwartsgesellschaft rasant zugenommen hat. Der Band schließt diese Lücke: mit Analysen nicht nur der Bildinterpretation, sondern auch der fotografischen Handlung selbst sowie der Auseinandersetzung mit Fotos. Die Beiträge renommierter Autor_innen über die Fotopraxis von Laien und Professionellen, den Übergang von der analogen zur digitalen Fotografie, das Fotografieren mittels Smartphone und Foto-Apps, die Gebrauchsweisen von Fotografie im Alltag und in den Medien sowie die Besonderheiten der Bildkommunikation und -interpretation wenden sich nicht nur an Sozial-, Medien- und Kulturwissenschaftler_innen, sondern an alle, die sich für Fotografie interessieren. Mit Beiträgen von Nina Baur/Patrik Budenz, Oliver Bidlo/Norbert Schröer, Aida Bosch, Roswitha Breckner, Achim Brosziewski, Jochen Dreher, Thomas S. Eberle, Paul Eisewicht/Tilo Grenz, Ronald Hitzler, Felix Keller, Hubert Knoblauch, Bernard Langerock/Hermann Schmitz, Christoph Maeder, Jörg Metelmann, Klaus Neumann-Braun, Michaela Pfadenhauer, Angelika Poferl/Reiner Keller, Manfred Prisching, Jürgen Raab, Jo Reichertz/Sylvia Marlene Wilz, Bernt Schnettler, Franz Schultheis, Hans-Georg Soeffner, Ilja Srubar und Anna Lisa Tota.

Photography and Its Violations

Theorists critique photography for "objectifying" its subjects and manipulating appearances for the sake of art. In this bold counterargument, John Roberts recasts photography's violating powers of disclosure and aesthetic technique as part of a complex "social ontology" that exposes the hierarchies, divisions, and exclusions behind appearances. The photographer must "arrive unannounced" and "get in the way of the world," Roberts argues, committing photography to the truth-claims of the spectator over the self-interests and sensitivities of the subject. Yet even though the violating capacity of the photograph results from external power relations, the photographer is still faced with an ethical choice: whether to advance photography's truth-claims on the basis of these powers or to diminish or veil these powers to protect the integrity of the subject. Photography's acts of intrusion and destabilization, then, constantly test the photographer at the point of production, in the darkroom, and at the computer, especially in our 24-hour digital image culture. In this game-changing work, Roberts refunctions photography's place in the world, politically and theoretically restoring its reputation as a truth-producing medium.

Street photography is perhaps the best-loved and most widely known of all photographic genres, with names like Cartier-Bresson, Brassai and Doisneau familiar even to those with a fleeting knowledge of the medium. Yet what exactly is street photography? From what viewpoint does it present its subjects, and how does this viewpoint differ from that of documentary photography? Looking closely at the work of Atget, Kertesz, Bovis, Rene-Jacques, Brassai, Doisneau, Cartier- Bresson and more, this elegantly written book, extensively illustrated with both well-known and neglected works, unpicks Parisian street photography's affinity with Impressionist art as well as its complex relationship with parallel literary trends and authors from Baudelaire to Philippe Soupault. Clive Scott traces street photography’s origins, asking what really what happened to photography when it first abandoned the studio, and brings to the fore fascinating questions about the way the street photographer captures or frames those subjects - traders, lovers, entertainers - so beloved of the genre. In doing so Scott reveals street photography to be a poetic, even 'picturesque' form, looking not to the individual but to the type; not to the ‘reality’ of the street but to its 'romance'.

Der beispiellose Absturz eines Start-up-Wunderkinds Elizabeth Holmes, Gründerin und CEO von Theranos, galt schnell als der weibliche Steve Jobs.

Larry Ellison, Rupert Murdoch und andere Investoren steckten Unsummen in das Start-up, bis es mit neun Milliarden Dollar am Markt kapitalisiert war. Es gab nur ein einziges Problem: Die Technologie hinter den schicken Apparaturen hat nie funktioniert. Pulitzer-Preisträger John Carreyrou erzählt die packende Geschichte dieses Betrugs und seiner Enthüllung.
