No_Code is an intersectional project conceived by the Italian luxury group Tod s that examines changes in contemporary society. It is a hybrid idea that fuses emerging technology with Italian craftsmanship. Tod s No_Code has commissioned the Iranian-American photographer Ramak Fazel to take a journey on the road in Silicon Valley. The aim of the trip is to represent real life in the Valley, going beyond common media narratives. What lies behind the official images of Big Tech? How do the inhabitants of this piece of California land below San Francisco live? Where do they live? What houses do they have? What restaurants do they eat at and what cars do they drive? How do they have fun? With his inseparable analog Rolleiflex around his neck, photographer Ramak Fazel takes us on his journey and discovers some secrets in one of the most protected enclaves. This unprecedented and surprising anthropological inquiry uses the medium of photography to reveal one of the most famous places in the world.
Standing on the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama, in 2017, photographer William Abranowicz was struck by the weight of historical memory at this hallowed site of one of the civil rights movement's defining episodes: 1965's Bloody Sunday, when Alabama police officers attacked peaceful marchers. To Abranowicz's eye, Selma seemed relatively unchanged from its apperance in the photographs Walker Evans made there in the 1930s. That, coupled with an awareness of renewed voter suppression efforts at state and federal levels, inspired Abranowicz to explore the living legacy of the civil and voting rights movement through photographing locations, landscapes, and individuals associated with the struggle, from Rosa Parks and Harry Belafonte to the barn where Emmett Till was murdered. The result is This Far and No Further, a collection of photographs from Abranowicz's journey through the American South. Through symbolism, metaphor, and history, he unearths extraordinary stories of brutality, heroism, sacrifice, and redemption hidden within ordinary American landscapes, underscoring the crucial necessity of defending-and exercising-our right to vote at this tenuous moment for American democracy.
In extraordinary, life-affirming photos taken around the world-from developing villages to urban centers-over the last 40 years, a photographer makes the bold case that what unites us is more powerful than the borders that divide us. Hailed as photography's new conscience, photographer and psychiatrist Dr. Glenn Losack has spent a lifetime traveling the world, determined to extend healing, hope, and compassion. With a camera in hand, he goes places that tourists rarely visit, including slums, alleys, and dark streets. He's seen struggle, but he's also seen our shared humanity: families playing together, laborers working, the devout praying to their gods. Dr. Losack has found resilience, joy, passion, and celebration in communities the world over, even in places plagued with corrupt government, poor infrastructure, and disease. The 200 captivating photos in The Bonds We Share, taken in India, the Dominican Republic, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Morocco, Peru, Tunisia, Sri Lanka, Egypt, the United States, Eastern Europe, and elsewhere, serve as a remarkable retrospective of Dr. Losack's work and reveal an essential truth: we may come from very different cultures, far-ranging geographic corners, belief systems, and economic circumstances, but we all share the same desire to work hard, raise families, and lead fulfilling lives. In this spectacular volume, Dr. Losack interrogates timely notions of difference and portrays the commonality of people from different cultures around the globe.
7 Reece Mews, South Kensington, was Francis Bacon's home and studio for over thirty years. After he died in 1992, access was granted to award-winning photographer Perry Ogden to work undisturbed for days on end to produce this riveting record of the house and its contents. He captured every part of the small building's hidden interior: the rickety wooden staircase; the kitchen with its 'gallery' of Bacon works in reproduction; the bedsitting room with its bookcases piled high. In the studio itself, thirty years of inspired artistic endeavour had accumulated unchecked: the slashed, discarded canvases scattered across the floor; the brushes, rags and tins encrusted with layer upon layer of paint; the surfaces used as impromptu palettes; the last unfinished self-portrait on the easel. For some, Bacon's studio was an heroic statement, a work of art in its own right, constructed to distil and give form to his aesthetic intentions. In this astonishing book we are invited to take an intimate and privileged look around his private space, and to gain unrivalled insights into how, why and what he painted.
This book captures the core of who Joe Biden is as a lifelong public servant, and who he would be as America's next President--featuring photographs from his eight years as one of America's most consequential vice presidents and partner to Barack Obama. These visually arresting photographs and behind-the-scenes stories show Biden stepping into his own as a leader ready to guide a nation in distress. They also reveal a new dimension to Biden's humanity--as a man whose decency and kindness shines through both tragedy and triumph, whose working-class roots inform his values, and whose candor and approachability enable him to connect with citizens of all kinds. This book traces Biden's vice presidency in unprecedented detail, shedding light on who he is as a political leader and patriot, and also as a father, husband, and friend. It will delight and fascinate readers who yearn for the return of honesty and ethics to the nation's highest offices. As we draw closer to the 2020 presidential elections, this portrait of one of the most influential names in American politics is more timely and important than ever.
