Lee Friedlander is one of the few artists in any medium to have sustained a body of influential work over five decades. To make the photographs in Mannequin, he returned to the hand-held, 35-mm camera that he used in the earliest decades of his career. Over the past three years, Friedlander has roamed the sidewalks of New York City, Los Angeles and San Francisco, focusing on storefront windows and reflections that conjure marketplace notions of sex, fashion and consumerism, while recalling Atget's surreal photographs of Parisian windows made 100 years earlier. Thoroughly straightforward, their unsettling and radical new compositions suggest photographs that have been torn up and pasted back together again in near-random ways. Lee Friedlander(born 1934) first came to public attention in the landmark exhibition New Documents, at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 1967. The range of his work since then-including portraits, nudes, still lifes and studies of people at work-is anchored in a uniquely vivid and far-reaching vision of the american scene. More than 40 books about his work have been published since the early 1970s, including Self-Portrait, Sticks and Stones, Cherry Blossom Time in Japan, Family, America by Car, People at Workand The New Cars 1964. His career was the focus of a major traveling retrospective organized by The Museum of Modern Art in 2005. His work can be found in depth in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the San Francisco Museum of Art and the National Gallery of Art, among many others.

“When a close friend read my third book, Turning to the Sunset, she commented that the title and the section on aging were too sad, too final. I was not surprised, as she has difficulty acknowledging this phase of our lives, but I wanted to address this phase of my life. My poetry file has filled up again and I now want to say that, even though I am aging, I am not quite finished. After all, ‘it ain’t over till it’s over.’ Many of the themes of my first three books remain the same, but I have added a new section ‘Art and Beauty’ because the arts have been a great part of my life. I received my BA in art history, worked for galleries in Santa Fe for over twenty years, and have enriched my life through the years with the contemporary and historic arts in the gallery and museum shows of New York, France, and the American Southwest.”

In this concise and pithy study, art critic David Levi Strauss makes an argument for the continued relevance of art made by hand. A wide variety of media and individual examples are considered: the works of individual sculptors and painters; "exotic" practitioners, such as the West coast Haida and the poet Cecilia Vicuna; curatorial figures and critical thinkers; and more. Strauss uses his analysis of individual works to lay bare the real distinctions that exist between seemingly contradictory concepts like labor and poetics, thought and action. He builds up an argument that reveals the powerful relation that exists between art-making and the present cultural and political ethos. Throughout, his larger claims are elaborated through a keen attention to the interplay between fact, response, perception, and thought--dynamics which are traced out with a remarkable philosophical rigor that is engaging and, above all, provocative.

Flash! presents a fascinating cultural history of flash photography, from its mid-nineteenth century beginnings to the present day. All photography requires light, but the light of flash photography is quite distinctive: artificial, sudden, shocking, intrusive, and extraordinarily bright. Associated with revelation and wonder, it has been linked to the sublimity of lightning. Yet it has also been reviled: it's inseparable from anxieties about intrusion and violence, it creates a visual disturbance, and its effects are often harsh and create exaggerated contrasts. Flash! explores flash's power to reveal shocking social conditions, its impact on the representation of race, its illumination of what would otherwise remain hidden in darkness, and its capacity to put on display the most mundane corners of everyday life. It looks at flash's distinct aesthetics, examines how paparazzi chase celebrities, how flash is intimately linked to crime, how flash has been used to light up - and interrupt - countless family gatherings, how flash can 'stop time' allowing one to photograph rapidly moving objects or freeze in a strobe, and it considers the biggest flash of all, the atomic bomb. Examining the work of professionals and amateurs, news hounds and art photographers, photographers of crime and of wildlife, the volume builds a picture of flash's place in popular culture, and its role in literature and film. Generously illustrated throughout, Flash! brings out the central role of this medium to the history of photography and challenges some commonly held ideas about the nature of photography itself.

Valérie Belins photographs avoid simple representation or description, even though she often chooses to photograph simple objects, such as glasses, silverware, Venetian mirrors, cars, or animal carcasses. Instead she is attempting to unveil the very essence of her subjects and to delve into the deepest secrets of things, of matter and of light, almost independent of the objects themselves. This comprehensive retrospective of Belins work also includes all her other suites her questioning of corporeality in her explicit studies of bodybuilders; the series of Moroccan brides which broach complex issues of identity and representation; and her investigations of hybrid entities, such as transsexuals, Michael Jackson look-alikes and the mannequins in shop windows.
