Charlie Waite - The Making of Landscape Photographs

In The Making of Landscape Photographs Charlie Waite, one of the most gifted landscape photographers of his generation, reveals the secrets of his craft through 150 of his own favourite photographs.

But technical mastery is only a small part of the story and Charlie Waite aims, above all, to communicate his own love of the landscape to the reader.

A unique blend of the practical and the inspirational, The Making of Landscape Photographs is an exceptionally beautiful and illuminating book. - Charlie Waite is at the forefront of British landscape photography.

Dawn Ades - Photomontage
Manipulation of the photograph is as old as photography itself: it has been used in political propaganda, and has also embodied or enlivened satire, publicity and commercial art; it has created evocations of the "brave new world" of the future, and surrealist and fantastic visions. Photomontages were made by, among others, the Dadaists, Heartfield, Lissitzky, Rodchenko and Max Ernst, and many of them are reproduced here for the first time in this newly revised and updated edition. 203 illus.
Peter Baki - Colin Ford - George Szirtes - Eyewitness: Hungarian Photography in the Twentieth Century
At a crucial moment between two world wars, in a country destabilized by political turmoil, five men changed the face of photojournalism and art photography, and inspired the world. With their groundbreaking shots, Brassaï, Capa, Kertész, Moholy-Nagy, and Munkásci radically redefined photographic practice and theory, giving rise to iconic images and ushering in the modern era. In this stunning book, essays by leading authorities examine the ways in which the extraordinary activity of these five men established Hungary as a crucible of art photography at the time, as well as the influence they have had on succeeding generations of photographers. Illustrated with their major works and a number by their contemporaries—in many cases using archival prints—the book is a landmark study of modern photography.
Michael Freeman - Achieving Photographic Style
In the words of Diane Arbus, a photograph is a 'secret about a secret'. Alluring, mysterious and powerful, the great pictures of our time possess special qualities that all photographers would like to emulate in their work. But, although the technological aspects of the subjects are well understood, little attempt has been made to analyze the reasons why certain images have such impact. Written by a leading photographer - and illustrated with the work of over 100 great professionals, from Cartier-Bresson and Ansel Adams to Tim Page and David Bailey - Achieving Photographic Style is the first book to provide a detailed appraisal of the central aesthetic values of the photographic image. Stimulating, informative text covers all types of contemporary photographic style, including: - Photojournalism and reportage - Advertising and glamour photography - Landscape - Special effects - Portraiture Detailed compositional and technical analysis of the elements that make individual photographs really work are supplemented by charts, diagrams and explanatory artwork. Controversial and wide-ranging, Achieving Photographic Style is an essential and thought-provoking contribution to our understanding of the subject. - Michael Freeman, the author of several books on the sucject, is a professional photographer whose work has appeared extensively in _Time-Life Books, The Smithsonian, Omni, Geo,_ and other major international publications. His own considerable reputation has been built mainly in the areas of special effects photography and photojournalism.
Richard Avedon - Woman in the Mirror
Among the significant projects of the last year of his life, Richard Avedon (1923-2004) completed a book of his photographs of women. Always transcending categorization-he was both a fashion photographer and known as a "poet of portraiture"-Avedon was interested in seeing how elemental facts of modern life and human existence were reflected in his work. And what could be more elemental than women, who have mesmerized artists across the centuries? Looking at his work in this way, Avedon was able to create an unparalleled view of women in his time, a tumultuous half century of rapidly changing social facts, cultural ideals, popular styles, and high fashion. As an artist, Avedon was deeply responsive to nuances of expression, gesture, and comportment, and his photographs unfailingly opened a window to the interior lives of his subjects. These ranged from celebrities (Marilyn Monroe), artists (Marguerite Duras, June Leaf), and high-fashion models (Suzy Parker, Dovima) to anonymous people that simply drew his attention. Like the best of art and literature, they evoke rich lives and complex experiences. An incisive essay by art historian Anne Hollander offers an overview of a half century of Avedon's images of women.

J. R. R. Tolkien - The Letters of J. R. R. Tolkien
A comprehensive collection of letters spanning the adult life (1914-1973) of one of the world’s most famous storytellers. ‘It is not possible even at great length to "pot" The Lord of the Rings in a paragraph or two. It was begun in 1936, and every part has been written many times… the labour has been colossal; and it must stand or fall, practically as it is.’ J.R.R. Tolkien was one of the most prolific letter writers of this century. Over the years he wrote to his publishers, his family, to friends (including C.S. Lewis, W.H. Auden and Naomi Mitchison) and to fans of his books. The letters present a fascinating and highly detailed portrait of the man in many of his aspects: as storyteller, scholar, Catholic, parent and observer of the world around him. They also shed much light on his creative genius and grand design for the creation of a whole new world – Middle-earth. This collection will appeal not only to the legions of Tolkien fans, but will entertain anyone who appreciates the art of letter-writing, of which Tolkien was a master. ‘I am nearly always written to as Tolkien (not by you): I do not know why, since it is pronounced by me always - keen.’

Eloisa James - Duchess in Love
It should be galling for a bride to have her bridegroom flee the country only minutes after saying "I do." But for Gina, who was not yet 12 when she suddenly had to learn to be a proper duchess, it was a relief to find she wouldn't have to deal with becoming a wife to the childhood friend who was now her husband as well. Instead, she devoted herself to administering the ducal estates in her young husband's absence, while the 18-year-old duke settled in Greece to sculpt scandalous statues of naked women. This situation, which suited them both for a dozen years, is finally disrupted when Gina falls in love and asks for an annulment. Cam's response to his virgin bride's unexpected request is an immediate return to England, where he has two momentous realizations. First, the English climate cannot compare to the warmth and sunlight of his beloved Greece. And second, he has fallen in love with the stunning near-stranger who is his wife. While award-winning author Eloisa James is not the first writer to make use of the plot device of an estranged married couple falling in love, she imbues this theme with vitality, passion, and just enough anger on Gina's part to keep the romantic tension sizzling in this delightful historical romance. Gina's friends complicate matters, as the duke and duchess come to realize that, while their marriage so long ago may not have been in their best interests, an annulment now would destroy any chance for true happiness.
