History of Photography Reference Books

As Robert Adams notes, “Art is by nature self-explanatory”; what writing about art can do is heighten the necessity of the work. Writers on photography like Beaumont Newhall and John Szarkowski are famously possessed of this ability, and bring an infectious fondness for the art that has made their books as necessary as the photographs they celebrate; while photographers like Robert Adams and Henri Cartier-Bresson supply a practitioner’s perspective as accomplished (as writing) as the images for which they are famed.

Thomas Struth

Edited with text by Thomas Weski, Ulrich Wilmes. Text by Jana-Maria Hartmann. Interview by Okwui Enwesor.

Since the 1990s, Thomas Struth has been one of the best-known and internationally successful photographers of the German art scene. Struth studied painting under Gerhard Richter and photography under Bernd and Hilla Becher, a combination that decisively influenced his vision.

This volume is a compilation of representative photographs from each series of works in Struth’s oeuvre: street photographs from the 1970s and 80s; empathetic portraits (particularly of families); large-format museum photographs”; nature studies; jungle photographs (New Pictures from Paradise); and, from the latest series, images from the world of science. As this compendium of his work shows, Struth has succeeded in . . . .go to book page >>

Rineke Dijkstra: The Louisiana Book

Edited by Michael Juul Holm. Text by Poul Erik Tøjner, Thomas Weski, Hans den Hartog Jager.

With elegance, vulnerability and candor, Dijkstra has created a portraiture style of profound encounter

Rineke Dijkstra is a master of capturing the individual in transition. Best known for her photographs of preadolescent bathers on the beach, she has also produced iconic images of mothers shortly after giving birth, teen soldiers in Israel, bullfighters bloodied after the fight. Dijkstra rigorously maintains a classical format, isolating her figures against stark backgrounds and posing them frontally or in three-quarters view. Within this strict format, the individuality of each sitter makes itself seen in their body’s particularities—the unique way their back slouches, their mouth sets, . . . .go to book page >>

Brassai

Edited with text by Peter Galassi. Text by Stuart Alexander, Antonio Muñoz Molina.

Brassai was the first great chronicler of the urban underbelly

This sumptuous Brassai overview gathers outstanding prints of his finest and most popular photographs, drawing on the Estate Brassai in Paris and the collections of leading museums in France and the United States. The work is organized into 18 thematic groupings, such as Paris by Night,” Portraits” and Self-Portraits,” Body of a Woman,” Graffiti,” Places and Things,” Pleasures” and The Street,” focusing throughout on his celebrated depictions of 1930s Paris.

When Brassai took up photography in the late 1920s, after his move to Paris in 1924 (from his native Brassov in Austria-Hungary, . . . .go to book page >>
