Transcultural Montage
$49.95
Berghahn
October-01-2013

The disruptive power of montage has often been regarded as a threat to scholarly representations of the social world. This volume asserts the opposite: that the destabilization of commonsense perception is the very precondition for transcending social and cultural categories. The contributors—anthropologists, filmmakers, photographers, and curators—explore the use of montage as a heuristic tool for comparative analysis in anthropological writing, film, and exhibition making. Exploring phenomena such as human perception, memory, visuality, ritual, time, and globalization, they apply montage to restructure our basic understanding of social reality. Furthermore, as George E. Marcus suggests in the afterword, the power of montage that this volume exposes lies in its ability to open the very “combustion chamber” of social theory by juxtaposing one’s claims to knowledge with the path undertaken to arrive at those claims.

Photographic Acts

As a visual medium, the photograph has many culturally resonant properties that it shares with no other medium. These essays develop innovative cultural strategies for reading, re-reading and re-using photographs, as well as for (re)creating photographs and other artworks and evoke varied sites of memory in contemporary landscapes: from sites of war and other violence through the lost places of indigenous peoples to the once-familiar everyday places of home, family, neighborhood and community. Paying close attention to the settings in which such photographs are made and used--family collections, public archives, museums, newspapers, art galleries--the contributors consider how meanings in photographs may be shifted, challenged and renewed over time and for different purposes--from historical inquiry to quests for personal, familial, ethnic and national identity.

The Universe Through the Eyes of Hubble
$53.89
Springer
March-28-2014

Designed with large images and distraction-free layouts to increase the impact of Hubble?s imagery, this book gives the reader a guided tour of the cosmos through the eyes of the Hubble Space Telescope. Before Hubble was launched in 1990, no exoplanet had ever been observed, dark energy was unknown, the age of the universe was a mystery, and the most distant objects observed were just halfway back in time to the Big Bang. Hubble has been the centerpiece in a revolution in astronomy, as well as giving the public a visceral connection to the Universe through its stunning images.

The images that have been selected here explore key themes in recent astronomy, including planetary science, cosmology and stellar evolution, explaining Hubble?s contributions to our understanding of the universe. Hubble's unique images ? some never published before ? are presented together with a mix of cutting-edge science that highlights the key discoveries of the past few years and how they fit into Hubble?s growing list of scientific achievements. It is an unforgettable view of our amazing universe.

An Exploration of Colors in the Solar System and Beyond
W here do you start to write about colors in the universe? Do you look to the deepest ocean trenches on Earth, with their awesome bioluminescent creatures roaming the blackness of the abyss? And where do you finish? With the most distant galaxies in the cosmos? A difficult question, p- haps, but in between the two extremes, there is so much to marvel at that it really doesn?t matter where you start or end, as long as you note the staggeringly beautiful and complex examples of color there are and that each should, if possible, be represented in some way. Whether staring up at the sky when surprised by the sudden appearance of a vividly colored band of light that is a rainbow or peering through a telescope to view colors further afield, the origin and complexity of the source of light is witness to the wonderful and majestic world and the universe in which we live. A n attempt has been made here not only to create a picture gallery of the universe, but also to provide brief explanations or interpretation of the colors and, where appropriate, to give hints on how to capture p- tures easily yourself, without spending lots of money. As illustrated in the introduction, paying attention to just a few basic camera settings, it is possible to turn a blurred snapshot into a detailed and pin sharp picture worthy of framing and hanging on the wall.

20 Farbfotos Italienischer Maler 25 Strukturstudien Junger Grafiker
Wir leben im Zeitalter der Internationalen Partnerschaften. Poli� tische, kulturelle, wirtschaftliche Interessengemeinschaften werden ins Leben gerufen, gepflegt und gef�rdert. Es besteht immer und trotz aller bedr�ngenden Geschehnisse die berechtigte Hoffnung, da� �ber die Narben der Geschichte: �ber die Staatsgrenzen hinaus eine wahre Union die V�lker verbinden wird. So mag auch das vorliegende Buch in einem bestimmten Sinne als ein beschei� dener Beitrag zu dieser erstrebenswerten Entwicklung gedeutet werden. Bekannte Italienische K�nstler folgten einer Anregung der Ferrania, Malland, des italienischen Weltunternehmens auf dem Gebiete der Fotografie, und suchten durch das Objektiv der Kamera und die Mittel der Farbfotografie in der Natur und in den Dingen jene Ord� nungsgef�ge neu zu entdecken, denen sie sonst aus Innerer Sicht mit den Ausdrucksmitteln des Malers Gestalt verleihen. Die gefun� denen Strukturen legen Zeugnis ab �ber ihr Beobachtungsver� m�gen und vermitteln zugleich einen Eindruck Ihrer Vorstellungs� weit. Sie weisen auch auf M�glichkeiten der Farbfotografie hin, die einen weiten Spielraum bieten. 5 Diesen Farbfotos stehen Studienarbeiten gegen�ber, die an der Folkwangschule f�r Gestaltung, Essen, aus einer gewissenhaften und ins kleinste Detail gehenden Beobachtung stofflicher Struk� turen entstanden sind. Nach M�glichkeit wurde Wert darauf gelegt, den Besonderheiten dieser Zeichnungen durch Wiedergabe in Originalgr��e gerecht zu werden. F�r den geneigten Betrachter m�ge diese Symbiose von Technik und kreativem Humanum, wie sie in den folgenden Bl�ttern sichtbar wird, als Anregung wirksam werden, den Reichtum der Sprache der Naturformen in bildnerischen Zeugnissen junger deutscher und bekannter italienischer K�nstler zu erleben.

Masks of the Milky Way and Our Awesome New View of Galaxies

The Milky Way has captivated the mind of multitudes ever since the beginning of time. Particularly striking are its apparent dusty gaping voids. With the advent of near-infrared technology, astronomers have discovered an awesome new view of its structure, and of the structure of other galaxies around us. Galaxies are encased within Shrouds of the Night: shrouds or veils of cosmic dust, which have given us a totally incomplete picture of what our majestic Universe actually looks like. In this book, we feature some of the remarkable early photographic work of masters such as Isaac Roberts and Edward Barnard, before presenting to the reader the unmasked (dust penetrated) view of our cosmos, using some of the world?s largest ground and space-based telescopes.

mit Tipps zur Unterwasserfotografie

In diesem praxisorientierten Leitfaden wird dem Leser erkl�rt, wie man die kleinen Dinge ganz gro� darstellt, ob nun mit professioneller Makroausr�stung oder aber mit einfachen Kompaktkameras. Mit zahlreichen Beispielen und erkl�renden Skizzen wird der Leser in die Sch�nheit der Welt der kleinen Dinge eingef�hrt, in der andere Regeln herrschen als in der gew�hnlichen Fotografie.

Besonderes Augenmerk wird den kleinen und kleinsten Tieren gewidmet: Man kann eine Wespe langweilig von oben oder viel spannender unmittelbar von vorn in Abwehrstellung oder beim Abflug fotografieren! Welche Tricks gibt es, m�glichst nahe ranzukommen, in der richtigen Zehntelsekunde abzudr�cken und genau die richtige Dosis an Sch�rfe bzw. Unsch�rfe zu erwischen?

Zwei von elf Kapiteln sind der Unterwasser-Fotografie gewidmet, wo ebenso kurzweilig von den versch�rften Bedingungen unter Wasser die Rede ist. Abgerundet wird das Werk von hunderten ausgezeichneten Fotografien, deren Entstehungsgeschichte als Richtlinie dienen kann.
