Jacques Henri Lartigue (1894-1986) was the best-known "amateur" in the history of photography, famously discovered by the art world and given an exhibi­tion at MoMA in New York when he was in his late sixties. He began by recording the pastimes and customs of his wealthy Parisian milieu, indulging his fascination with sports and aviation, and throughout his long life he was never without his camera. His friendships extended to the superstars of French culture, but he also made thousands of photographs of his family, wives, and lovers. His work was irresistibly warm and engaging. Although known for his black-and-white work, Lartigue loved color film, experimenting with the Autochrome process in the teens and twenties and embracing Ektachrome in the late 1940s. His color work, reproduced here for the first time, is astonishingly fresh: the French countryside, the women in his life, famous friends (Picasso, Fellini), and glimpses from his travels all come alive in this delightful book.

First published in 1991,The History of Photographyexplores the people, technology, and imagery that have made photography such a tremendous force in modern culture. As technology has improved, the level to which society depends upon photography increases. Over the past 150 years, photographers and their works have taught, inspired, angered, and spurred several generations toward social and political action. This interdependence between society and the photographic image continues to strengthen and evolve. This book develops specific themes from pre-photography to the present. The reader will develop a deeper understanding of how major photographers have viewed their work, how attitudes toward photography have changed, and how photography has influenced world perceptions and events.

Bill Callahan ist mit seinem literarischen Debüt ein Werk von poetischer Dichte und berührender Menschlichkeit gelungen, das seinen besten musikalischen Arbeiten nicht nachsteht. Bill Callahans literarischer Tonfall ist so verrückt wie die Wirklichkeit und so realistisch wie ein durchgeknalltes Erwachsenenmärchen. Das beste Übel des Menschseins, eben die Liebe, ist schon lange nicht mehr so treffend beschrieben worden, wie in dem Romandebüt des amerikanischen Singer-Songwriters- in deutscher Erstausgabe. »Die Welt um mich herum war still geworden. Die Stille senkte sich wie schwerer Schnee, langsam und stetig. Seither warte ich auf das Knirschen von Schritten, die sich meinen anschließen.« So beginnt der erste von insgesamt 62 Briefen, die ein gleichermaßen mysteriöser wie solitärer Erzähler an eine Frau richtet, die er bei einer Party trifft. Boxen hat einen großen Stellenwert im Leben des Berichtenden, gefolgt von seiner wissenschaftlichen Auseinandersetzung mit einem meteorologischen Phänomen - einem geisterhaften Wirbel, dem Vortex, der sein Leben aber längst nicht so durcheinander bringt wie die unbekannte Schöne, der die Schriftstücke gewidmet sind. Poetisch, lakonisch und immer wieder auch sehr witzig fängt der Schreibende seine Umwelt ein, verfertigt kurze Tagesberichte voll kleiner Details und großer Gefühle.

Die Entdeckung des völlig im Verborgenen entstandenen Werks der 2009 im Alter von 83 Jahren verstorbenen Vivian Maier ist eine photohistorische Sensation. Aus Frankreich stammend, verdiente Vivian Maier ihren Lebensunterhalt in den 50er und 60er Jahren als Kindermädchen in Chicago und New York. Auf eigene Rechnung und Gefahr und außerhalb jeder Öffentlichkeit führte sie eine Art Doppelleben als Street Photographer. Ihr Entdecker John Maloof legt ihr Werk in unserem Buch erstmals einer staunenden internationalen Öffentlichkeit vor. Einige der Photographien wurden kürzlich in Deutschland in der Galerie von Hilaneh von Kories in Hamburg gezeigt.

The role of space and place in the creation of visual narratives constitutes one of the most dynamic and exciting debates in contemporary film studies. How does film construct space? What are the spatial codes and strategies that it uses? What is the relationship between space and time in film? How do spatial constructs enable us to understand new concepts of identity and the politics and geographies of exile and displacement? Such questions, whose importance to contemporary film and culture is fundamental, are explored in wide-ranging, challenging essays that re-evaluate and extend recent theoretical debate in relation to the regional and national cinemas of Europe. Alongside critical essays by scholars of international repute the book contains original contributions by practising film directors. Characterised by its interdisciplinary, cross-national focus, it is thematically structured to provide an insight into smaller and less well-explored cinemas as well as those of Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Russia and Spain. Authoritative, lively, and jargon-free, these essays provide the reader with a clear understanding of the significance of space and place, and a fresh perspective on the fascinating diversity of European cinema.

Jacques-Henri Lartigue (1894-1986), celebrated photographer, and one of the greatest practitioners the medium has ever known, discovered the Riviera with his first camera in the company of his wealthy family when he was just eleven years old. For the rest of his life Lartigue was a regular visitor to the Cote d'Azur, taking many of his finest pictures in Nice, Cannes, Cap d'Ail, Antibes, Menton, and Monaco. This splendid volume is the first book, to bring together a large selection of these photographs which are accompanied by a lively, informative text. Not only did Lartigue document the elegant resort life of the leisure class of which he was a member-in the villas, hotels, beach clubs, and casinos where they lived and played-but he also created an intimate chronicle of the life he shared on he Riviera with his beautiful first wife Bibi, during the 1920s, his companion Renee Perle, in 1930-31, and Florette whom he married in 1942. Apart from the stunning black-and-white images for which Lartigue is celebrated-including his ground-breaking panoramic photographs of the coastline-Lartigue's Riviera also reveals an important group of little-known and rarely published color photographs. The world ski-jumping championships in Juan-les-Pins, filming Les Aventures du roi Pausole in Cap d'Antibes, the Ziegfeld Follies girls in Monte Carlo, alternate here with the daily life of Latigue and his friends-stopping for lunch in St. Tropez, exercising on the beach in Cannes, drinking an aperitif at sunset at Cap d'Ail. Among the most beautiful-and often funny and poignant-photographs ever taken, Lartigue's pictures of the Riviera will come as a revelation to those who will be discovering them for the first time, and as a welcome glimpse of the sunlight and glamour for which he is so admired by his devoted fans.
