The victor's account of history may be the one that gets written down, but photojournalism still has the power to undermine the official version. Such is the corrective testimony of this startling collection of banned, suppressed or conveniently forgotten would-be news images, depicting moments through the last century up to the present day, where the propaganda needs of politicians, despots and stars clashed with sometimes awkward, sometimes horrifying truths. Underexposed provides a reality check on alleged events over the last hundred years, documenting the struggle of the powerful to contend with rival cultural forces of media and information. Reclaimed from the trash cans of the Second World War, Hitler's preening speech rehearsals come back to argue with his self-made myth. From the cruelty of Stalin's Russia to fundamentalist chaos in Iran, and on to the horrors of the Gulf War and perspectives on September 11, via disgruntled starlets, ecological destruction and US nuclear tests, Underexposed gathers together some of the most ideologically dangerous photographs ever taken and releases them to haunt the increasingly manipulated, retouched present.

Sportscape tells the story of how sport has been shown by photographers over a period of 100 years, focusing on the beauty and interest of the photographs and what they can tell us about the development of sport. Many photographs have never been published before and each has been selected to contribute to a fascinating story of social, political and technological development over time, as well as being of interest in its own right. They have been selected from the collection of Allsport, the world's leading sports photographic agency, and the historic Hulton Getty Archive. Through this fascinating, surprising and beautiful selection, the momentum of the pictures give the book a dynamic thrust: from amateurism to professionalism, from wide views to tight focus, from black-and-white to colour, from local to international...everything getting faster and brighter and more dynamic as the century progresses. Director of The Photographers' Gallery in London, Paul Wombell's curatorial skills are at the core of the book. Sports columnist for The Times and Sports Feature Writer of the Year, 1999, Simon Barnes' introduction compellingly discusses the diverse themes that emerge from the pictures to draw fascinating comparisons between photographs and events separated by entire decades.

Eug ne Atget

Author: Eugène Atget
Publisher: Getty Publications
ISBN: 089236601X
Release Date: 2000
Genre: Photography

Eug�ne Atget (1857-1927) spent nearly thirty years photographing details of often-inconspicuous buildings, side streets, cul-de-sacs, and public sculptures in his beloved Paris. Yet before his death, he was practically unknown outside of that city. His genius was first recognized about 1924 by two young Americans living and working in Paris, Man Ray and his studio assistant, Berenice Abbott, who recognized the elements of contradiction, ambivalence, and ambiguity in Atget's images of Parisian architecture, streets, and parks. Presented in this volume are more than fifty of the Getty Museum's two hundred ninety-five pictures by Atget, with commentary on each image by Gordon Baldwin, associate curator of photographs at the J. Paul Getty Museum. In Focus: Eug�ne Atget also contains a chronological overview of his life and an edited transcript of a colloquium on his career, with participants Baldwin; David Featherstone, independent editor and curator; photographer Robbert Flick, professor of art at the University of Southern California; independent scholar David Harris; Weston Naef, curator of photographs, Getty Museum; Fran�oise Reynaud, curator of photographs at the Mus�e Carnavalet, Paris; and Michael S. Roth, associate director of the Getty Research Institute. This volume of the In Focus series is published to coincide with an exhibit of Atget's images from June 20 through October 18, 2000, at the Getty Museum.

The Paper Time Machine

Author: Wolfgang Wild
Publisher: Unbound
ISBN: 1783523735
Release Date: 2017-10-19

Past and present fuse in this lavishly produced book of historical black-and-white photographs, meticulously researched and digitally reconstructed in full and accurate colour. The Paper Time Machine is a book that will change the way you think about the past. It contains 130 historical black-and-white photographs, reconstructed in colour and introduced by Wolfgang Wild - creator and curator of the Retronaut website. The site has become a global phenomenon, collecting images that collapse the distance between the past and present and tear a hole in our map of time.The Paper Time Machine goes even further. Early photographic technology lacked acrucial ingredient - colour. As early as the invention of the medium, skilled artisans applied colour to photographs by hand, attempting to convey the vibrancy and immediacyof life in vivid detail. In most cases this was crude and unconvincing. Until now. The timebendingimages in The Paper Time Machine have been painstakingly restored and rendered in full and accurate colour by Jordan Lloyd of Dynamichrome, a company that has taken the craft of colour reconstruction to a new level. Each element of every photograph has been researched and colour-checked for historical authenticity. Behold American child labourers from the early twentieth century, alongside the construction of the Statue of Liberty. Marvel at crisp photographs from the Crimean Warin 1855, balanced with never-before-seen pictures from the Walt Disney archive. As the layers of colour build up, the effect is disorientingly real and the decades and centuries fall away. It is as though we are standing at the original photographer's elbow. This is a landmark photographic book - a collection of historical 'remixes' that exist alongside the original photographs but draw out qualities, textures and details that have hitherto remained hidden. Let The Paper Time Machine transport you. It is as close to time travel as we are ever likely to get.

Street Life in London

Author: Adolphe Smith
ISBN: 1910144266
Release Date: 2014-11-01
Genre: History

Street Life in London (1877-78), by journalist Adolphe Smith and photographer John Thomson, aimed to reveal by the innovative use of photography and essays the conditions of a life of poverty in London. Now regarded as a pioneering photo-text and a foundational work of socially conscious photography - "one of the most significant and far-reaching photobooks in the medium's history" (The Photobook: A History) - Street Life in London failed to achieve commercial success in its own time. In this groundbreaking book, we see the start, but not the conclusion, of a conversation between text and image in the service of education, reportage and social justice. This newly designed and typeset edition contains the full text and makes available to a contemporary audience Thomson's powerful images in their original size and rich colour.
