Olivo Barbieri: Site SpecificOlivo Barbieri: Site Specific

Published by Aperture.
Introduction by Christopher Phillips.

Site Specific is a summary of Italian photographer Olivo Barbieri’s (born 1954) ten-year project to record the world’s cities in aerial photographs. On the one hand, the book offers remarkable documentation, by one of today’s most thrilling image-makers, of 25 cities throughout the world. On the other, it is a narrative of Barbieri’s ever-evolving approach to photography and his thoughts about the nature of the medium. Presented chronologically, the book begins with the distinctive “tilt-shift” photographs of Italian cities with which Barbieri first established his reputation, and which launched a popular stylistic movement for selective-focus photographs. As the series continued, with portrayals of cities all over the world, Barbieri introduced other devices and approaches to “distort” perceived reality--such as playing with color, registration and the deletion or discoloring of particular details--to dramatic effect. The result is a remarkable photo essay about twenty-first-century urban space and about photography itself. Stunningly designed and presented in a luxuriously large format, the book is introduced by Christopher Phillips.

Stan Douglas: Midcentury StudioStan Douglas: Midcentury Studio

Published by Ludion.
Edited by Tommy Simoens. Text by Christopher Phillips, Pablo Sigg.

Vancouver photographer and video artist Stan Douglas (born 1960) has been celebrated since the late 1980s for his politically freighted retrievals of obsolete technologies and failed utopias. The emphatically narrative character of his films and photographs has made for comparisons with his Vancouver contemporary Jeff Wall, but Douglas also laces his work with a literary engagement, in references to works by Proust, Beckett and other writers. Midcentury Studio sees Douglas pursue a new direction. It chronicles the burgeoning discipline of press photography in North America during the postwar period, for which Douglas assumes the role of a fictional photographer, creating a series of images hypothetically produced between 1945-1951. Douglas constructed a “mid-century studio” using authentic equipment as well as actors to produce carefully staged, black-and-white photographs that painstakingly emulate the period's obsession with crime scenes, dance, gambling and technology. This volume juxtaposes actual photographs from the era with Douglas' superb photo-fictions.

Shanghai KaleidoscopeShanghai Kaleidoscope

Published by Royal Ontario Museum of Art.
Text by Christopher Phillips.

This oversize study of Shanghai's creative culture presents an adventurous mix of architectural models, digital simulations, designer fashion apparel, drawings, runway videos, paintings, photo-works and video installations by the city's leading contemporary artists. Christopher Phillips, curator at the International Center of Photography in New York and editor of this volume, writes in his introduction, Since the early 1990s, Shanghai has been at the forefront of China's historic national resurgence. During that time, it has become one of the world's most frenetic and fascinating cities. With a population now approaching 20 million, it is an urban colossus--China's largest and most densely populated city. For well over a decade, it has exhibited the fastest economic growth of any of the global megacities, averaging around 15 percent growth annually. Shanghai's burgeoning prosperity can be charted in the city's spectacular skyline, which is now crowded with more than 4,000 buildings in excess of 20 stories--double the number of New York City--with at least 1,000 more still to come.

Joseph Beuys: ArenaJoseph Beuys: Arena

Where would I have got if I had been intelligent!

Published by DIA ART FOUNDATION.
Artwork by Joseph Beuys. Text by Pamela Kort, Christopher Phillips.

Arena is a major but rarely exhibited Beuys work that consists of 100 panels containing several hundred photographs of Beuys, spanning the artist's career from the late 40s to 1972. Realized in 1973, "Arena" attains a monumental scale and the sort of grand design appropriate to an artistic summa; as such, the project amounts to a broad portrait of Beuys' artistic persona. It is here documented for the first time.
