Pictures for Books: Photographs by Thomas RomaPictures for Books: Photographs by Thomas Roma

Published by Miriam and Ira D. Wallach Art Gallery.
Text by Susan Kismaric.

Like so many of the best photographers, Thomas Roma has a flair for thinking in book form. His first book, the limited-edition and handbound volume Brooklyn Gardens (1980), affirmed this flair from the outset of his career, and over the past 30 years Roma has published 13 volumes, always composing and sequencing his classical and modernist vision of contemporary life with care and thought. Roma’s concern for bookmaking accords with his general autodidacticism: he is self-taught to the degree that he even designs and builds his own cameras and lighting equipment. Pictures for Books is the first retrospective volume on Roma. It gathers selections from four previous publications: Found in Brooklyn (1996), Come Sunday (1996), Sicilian Passage (2003) and On Three Pillars: Torah, Worship and the Practice of Loving Kindness, The Synagogues of Brooklyn (2007). Shot in black and white, the sequences included here display two signature Roma traits: a quietly steady and penetrative observation of the close-at-hand, and a fondness for the diverse neighborhoods of Brooklyn, the borough in which Roma was born and continues to reside. Pictures for Books is full of images that capture daily life (both in Brooklyn and abroad) as it opens out into moments of capacious quietude.

Present Tense: Photographs by JoAnn VerburgPresent Tense: Photographs by JoAnn Verburg

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Text by Susan Kismaric.

Through such formal devices as series and multipanel works, JoAnn Verburg invigorates some of photography's common genres-the portrait, the landscape, the domestic view. Some of her works catch viewers off guard, leaving them unsure where they stand in relationship to the scene being shown; others investigate the passage of time, offering narratives that play out in either space or time, or both or neither. The intimate spaces of personal life are another of her ongoing themes, as shown in a series featuring her husband, the poet Jim Moore, reading newspapers or books, or sleeping. These works achieve a delicate balance between unguarded intimacy and the reality, often harsh, of the current events featured on that day's newspaper, reaching out of the work and into the world. Whether taking pictures of artists, swimmers, trees or pyramids constructed from sand, Verburg deftly explores representations of time and space. This publication, which accompanies an exhibition of Verburg's work at The Museum of Modern Art and the Walker Art Center, contains 111 illustrations and an essay by Susan Kismaric.

Fashioning Fiction In Photography Since 1990Fashioning Fiction In Photography Since 1990

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Essay and Interview with Dennis Freedman by Susan Kismaric and Dennis Freedman.

Since the late 1980s, the field of fashion photography has exploded, moving away from presenting a desirable ideal to showing contemporary lifestyles. An intriguing exchange of ideas and techniques between commercial photography and art photography and, more specifically, between fashion and art photography has completely changed the idea of what a fashion photograph is and what it should look like. The focus is on defining a milieu rather than just clothing. Fashioning Fiction in Photography Since 1990 presents a selection of high-profile fashion photographs influenced by two aesthetic strategies: cinema and the amateur photograph. The cinematic image, through its attention to drama and its reverence for tension and voyeurism, seduces a young audience whose primary visual points of reference are film and television. The amateur photograph, including the family album picture, provides seemingly offhand documentation of the activities of friends and associates in the lives of photographers, blurring the line between pictures made for hire and those made as personal keepsakes. This groundbreaking book, and the exhibition it accompanies, includes lavish illustrations of the work by photographers such as Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Cedric Buchet, Glen Luchford, Tina Barney, Juergen Teller, Nan Goldin and Larry Sultan, among others. The principal essay, by Susan Kismaric, Curator, and Eva Respini, Assistant Curator, in the Department of Photography at The Museum of Modern Art, explores the nature of fashion photography in the last decade, and the work of the photographers presented in this volume. A second essay, by Dennis Freedman, Vice Chairman and Creative Director of w magazine, discusses the subject from within the fashion industry and provides an intimate view of the creation of the promotional campaigns and the imagery of fashion.

Manuel Alvarez BravoManuel Alvarez Bravo

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Essay by Susan Kismaric. Foreword by Glenn D. Lowry.

Manuel Alvarez Bravo is one of the foremost figures of modern photography and the only photographer among the great Mexican artists of the 20th century. Bravo has produced work of exceptional quality throughout his long career: formal experiments of the 1920s were followed by modernists works inspired by such international trends as Surrealism, and the early 30s saw him develop a gifted personal style that suggested specific Mexican customs and rituals. The majority of this volume's 175 tritone plates were made from rare vintage prints assembled from private collections or furnished by the artist; many have never before been published and some have not been seen or exhibited since the 1930s. This volume was published in conjunction with a 1997 exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, New York.

Pictures Of The Times: A Century Of Photography From The New York Times

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Edited by Peter Galassi and Susan Kismaric. Essays by William Safire and Peter Galassi.

Selected from 17 million prints preserved in the archives of The New York Times, the spectacular photographs in this book provide a spellbinding sample from the rich archive that is the twentieth century, as seen through the eyes of a great newspaper. Revealed is the extraordinary and omnivorous breadth of photography's gaze: vivid pictures of both World Wars; of presidents, mayors, dictators and celebrities; of Beatles fans and Halley's comet; of victims and perpetrators, riots and disasters; of Bill Bradley on the court and Willie Mays sliding into home--and a great many more. Underlying them all is the gripping immediacy that makes news photography not only an indispensable presence in the daily paper but a vital part of history. This book includes an illustrated chronology that traces the evolution of the technology and business of news photography, with special attention to the role of The New York Times and to the recent rise of digital technologies in newspaper production. Originally published to accompany an exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
