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.

How New York Breaks Your Heart

Bill Hayes's critically acclaimed memoir Insomniac City provided a first look at his unique street photography. Now he presents an exquisite collection that captures the full range of his work and the magic of chance encounters in New York City. Hayes's "frank, beautiful, bewitching" street photographs "unmask their subjects' best and truest selves" (Jennifer Senior, New York Times): A policeman pauses at the end of a day. Cooks sneak in cigarette breaks. A pair of movers plays cards on the back of a truck. Friends claim the sidewalk. Lovers embrace. A flame-haired girl gazes mysteriously into the lens. And park benches provide a setting for a couple of hunks, a mom and her baby, a stylish nonagenarian . . . How New York Breaks Your Heart reveals ordinary New Yorkers at their most peaceful, joyful, distracted, anxious, expressive, and at their most fleeting--bringing the texture of the city to vivid life. Woven through with Hayes's lyric reflections, these photos will, like the city itself, break your heart by asking you to fall in love.

In The Photographer’s Eye, Michael Freeman showed what a photographer needs to do in the instant before the shutter is released. In the sequel, The Photographer’s Mind, he explained the way that professional photographers think a picture through before taking it. Both of these international best-sellers featured Michael’s own photography: stunning landscapes, revealing portraits, and fascinating street photography. Now, in The Photographer’s Vision, he examines the work of photography’s greats, explaining how to look at a photo – and how to learn from looking at it. The featured work includes some of the most distinguished names in photography’s history: Nick Knight, Frederick Henry Evans, Frans Lanting, Tim Page, Wolfgang Tillmans, Nan Goldin, Paul Outerbridge, Walker Evans, Cindy Sherman, Elliott Erwitt, Trent Parke, Jeff Wall, Paul Strand, Romano Cagnoni, Horst Faas, James Casebere and many more, making this book visually stunning as well as intellectually authoritative.

Photography and Its Violations

Author: John Roberts

ISBN: 0231538243

Category: Philosophy

Page: 240

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.
