The Honoured Dead

The Honoured Dead

Author: Brian Parsons Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 17/11/2020

A rarely seen collection of archival postcards, drawings, and photographs documenting London's great cemeteries. Since they were established in the 1830s, London's great cemeteries have inspired countless artists and photographers to record their quiet beauty and solemn majesty. Not just resting places for the city's honoured dead, they also serve as great repositories of social, architectural, and geographic history, reflecting our changing attitudes to the great inevitable. Featuring over 170 images, along with comprehensive notes, The Honoured Dead presents a rarely seen collection of archival postcards, drawings, and photographs gathered over many years by author and former funeral director Brian Parsons. As well as the celebrated Magnificent Seven necropolises-Highgate, Kensal Green, West Norwood, Abney Park, Nunhead, Brompton, and Tower Hamlets-the book also documents cemeteries and burial sites throughout Greater London and its environs, some of them now themselves buried by time. Providing a unique perspective on London's past, and its shifting visual representation, The Honoured Dead is a collection to be remembered with flowers.

Negative/Positive

Negative/Positive

Author: Geoffrey Batchen Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 15/11/2020

As its title suggests, Negative/Positive begins with the negative, a foundational element of analog photography that is nonetheless usually ignored, and uses this to tell a representative, rather than comprehensive, history of the medium. The fact that a photograph is split between negative and positive manifestations means that its identity is always simultaneously divided and multiplied. The interaction of these two components was often spread out over time and space and could involve more than one person, giving photography the capacity to produce multiple copies of a given image and for that image to have many different looks, sizes and makers. This book traces these complications for canonical images by such figures as William Henry Fox Talbot, Kusakabe Kimbei, Dorothea Lange, Man Ray, Seydou Keita, Richard Avedon, and Andreas Gursky. But it also considers a number of related issues crucial to any understanding of photography, from the business practices of professional photographers to the repetition of pose and setting that is so central to certain familiar photographic genres. Ranging from the daguerreotype to the digital image, the end result is a kind of little history of photography, partial and episodic, but no less significant a rendition of the photographic experience for being so. This book represents a summation of Batchen's work to date, making it be essential reading for students and scholars of photography and for all those interested in the history of the medium

Resident Dog

Resident Dog

Author: Nicole England Format: Hardback Release Date: 12/11/2020

As an architecture photographer, Nicole England found that the shoots she enjoyed the most were the ones where dogs were present - nothing lightens the mood like a nonchalant pup. However imposing the architecture, some doggy hijinks can immediately bring an element of sociability and fun. With this in mind, Nicole set about setting up her Instagram, Resident Dog, and now this book, Resident Dog [Volume Two], which showcases over 25 of the world's most amazing houses, and the dogs that live there. Photographing dogs is not always straightforward, because they don't always cooperate! The result is that these images end up with a looser, more spontaneous style. Just as every home is different, so is every dog. The photographs showcase amazing architecture and capture the personality of the idiosyncratic personality of each canine. Take a wander around the world's most stunning homes, from Mexico City to Sydney, London, New York and LA, with the home pooch as your tour guide. Each home will feature several photographs, and an interview with the architect or homeowner.

Author: Rankin Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 03/11/2020

Play draws exclusively on Rankin s archive of photographs of the biggest names in contemporary music from the rock gods who shaped our musical landscape to the British Invasion of the 1990s and the American superstars who mix music and production to define what the record industry is today. Divided by theme Heroes and Girl Gangs and Boy Bands, Cool Britannia and My Generation Play collects almost two hundred of Rankin s favorite images of the most influential artists of the last three decades, from David Bowie and Elton John to Pharrell, the Spice Girls, Grimes, and Bjork. Alongside his photos are anecdotes from Rankin and the artists themselves on the reciprocal relationship between photographer and subject and between the star power of pop music and the iconography of fashion.
