Masculinities: Photography and Film from the 1960s to Now

Masculinities: Photography and Film from the 1960s to Now

Author: ,Alona Pardo Format: Hardback Release Date: 06/02/2020

This photographic exploration draws together the work of approximately fifty artists of different ethnicities, generations, and gender identities to look at how ideas of masculinity have evolved since the 1960s. Each of its six themed chapters features bold and arresting work by artists such as Richard Avedon, John Coplans, Robert Mapplethorpe, Herb Ritts, Collier Schorr, Larry Sultan, Wolfgang Tillmans, and David Wojnarowicz, who are all renowned for their depictions of masculinity and its tropes. Others, including Rotimi Fani-Kayode, Masahisa Fukase, Adi Nes, Hank Willis Thomas, and Akram Zaatari, offer ethnically and culturally diverse perspectives. A number of female photographers-Laurie Anderson, Heather Cassils, Marianne Wex -explore the influence of the female gaze and younger artists like Andrew Moisey, Mahtab Hussain, Omar Viktor Diop, and Sam Contis offer a 21st-century perspective of maleness through the lens of immigration and global politics. Each chapter in the book opens with an essay by a key thinker in the worlds of art, history, culture, and queer studies. Spanning decades and continents, this exploration shows how increasingly difficult it is to define masculinity.

New England Ruins Photographs of Abandoned Places

New England Ruins Photographs of Abandoned Places

Author: Robert Dobi Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/01/2020

A hauntingly beautiful glimpse of New England's past Rob Dobi has been photographing abandoned places in the Northeast since 1999 when he was a student at RISD. The wonderment and discovery of the experience never wanes for Dobi and there really isn't one specific type of building or space that inspires him more than another, mainly because the rush of stepping into a place where you don't know what to expect never gets old. His photographs include those of iconic places, asylums school house, churches, factories, and abandoned homes in the middle of nowhere. He tries to document as much of a place as he can, with a good amount of wide shots that define the space as well as seeking out things one might not normally encounter. Sometimes the most interesting finds are the things others might look over, like a doodle on a sheet of paper, or some hidden patient scrawl on a brick. The collection of photographs, accompanied by short essay, evokes feeling of loss and nostalgia, but also rouses the imagination about those New England days now long in the past.

From the North to the South Pole - Latitude

Author: Christer Loefgren Format: Book Release Date: 01/01/2020

This book of photographs by Swedish photographer Christer Loefgren explores the diverse and multifaceted world in which we live, from north to south. In comparing photographs of various cultures, diversity is more noticeable: the colours, clothes, and food point to the identity of each place. The further north or south of the equator you travel, colours are paler, and the food is milder and less spicy. The more extreme nature is, the more difficult the lifestyle. These vibrant photographs ask us to broaden our vision and grasp the complexity and beauty of the world as a global whole. This deluxe edition consists of three hardcover books in a slipcase.
