Book DescriptionThe fascinating, untold story of the history of undressing: over fifty years of taking it off Striptease combined sexual display and parody, cool eros and wisecracking Bacchanalian humor Striptease could be savage, patriotic, irreverent, vulgar, sophisticated, sentimental, and subversive--sometimes, all at once In this обэшз vital cultural history, Rachel Shteir traces the ribald art from its nineteenth century vaudeville roots, through its long and controversial career, to its decline during the liberated 1960s The book argues that striptease is an American form of popular entertainment--maybe the most American form of popular entertainment Based on exhaustive research and filled with rare photographs and period illustrations, Striptease recreates the combustible mixture of license, independence, and sexual curiosity that allowed strippers to thrive for nearly a century Shteir brings to life striptease's Golden Age, the years between the Jazz Age and the Sexual Revolution, when strippersperformed around the country, in burlesque theatres, nightclubs, vaudeville houses, carnivals, fairs, and even in glorious palaces on the Great White Way Taking us behind the scenes, Rachel Shteir introduces us to a diverse cast of characters that collided on the burlesque stage, from tight-laced political reformers and flamboyant impresarios, to drag queens, shimmy girls, cootch dancers, tit serenaders, and even girls next door, lured into the profession by big-city aspirations Throughout the book, readers will find essential profiles of famed performers, including Gypsy Rose Lee, "the Literary Stripper"; Lili St Cyr, the 1950s mistress of exotic striptease; and Blaze Starr, the "human heat wave," who literally set the stage on fire Striptease is an insightful and entertaining portrait of an art form at once reviled and embraced by the American public Blending careful research and vivid narration, Rachel Shteir captures striptease's combination of sham and seduction while illuminating its surprisingly persistent hold on the American imagination. 2004 г 438 стр ISBN 0195127501.
Book DescriptionJaroslav Rossler (1902-1990) was one of the Czech avant-garde photographers of the first half of the twentieth century whose work has only recently become known outside Eastern Europe Czech photography in the twenties and thirties produced radical modernist works that incorporated principles of abstract art and constructivism; обэшн Jaroslav Rossler was one of the most important and distinctive artists of the period He became known for his fusing of different styles, bringing together elements of symbolism, pictorialism, expressionism, cubism, futurism, constructivism, new objectivity, and abstract art His photographs often reduced images to elementary lines and shapes that seemed to form a new reality; he would photograph simple objects against a stark background of black and white, or use long exposures to picture hazy cones and spheres of light From 1927 to 1935 he lived and worked in Paris, producing work influenced by constructivism and new objectivity He used the photographic techniques and compositional approaches of the avant-garde, including photograms, large details, diagonal composition, photomontage, and double exposures, and experimented with color advertising photographs and still lifes produced with the carbro print process After his return to Prague, he was relatively inactive until the late 1950s, when he reconnected with Czech artistic and photographic trends of that period, including informalism This book documents each stage of Rossler's career with a generous selection of duotone images, some of which have never been published before The photographs are accompanied by texts by Vladimir Birgus, Jan Mlcoch, Robert Silverio, Karel Srp, and Matthew Witkovsky. 2004 г 176 стр ISBN 0262025574.

Well, What Is Photography: A Lecture on Photography on the Occasion of the 10th Anniversary of Fotomuseum Winterthur артикул 1142a.
Book DescriptionIn this accessible and eloquent book-length essay, Urs Stahel, writer, curator and co-founder of Fotomuseum Winterthur, muses on the very nature of photography The introduction outlines the unique tension defining photography--that it shows a segment of the world and simultaneously expresses a subject's particular view обэшж of this world This tension is the source of the medium's unique creative potential and its complex relation to truth Stahel provides a philosophical perspective on theseissues by placing them in an epistemological, social, and historical context Chapters on industrial photography, staged and conceptual photography, and the current crisis of photojournalism provide a panoramic overview of the possibilities and challenges of photography in all of its variety, from the casual snapshot to art and commercial photography This profound and readable essay, one of the few daring enough to address the nature of photography, is destined to become a standard work, a must read foranyone interested in thinking about photography [ ] the answer to the question, "What is photography?" is actually quite simple at first sight Photography is a device to record light, invented in the 19th century, that allows us to fix the perspective perception of the world in the manner constructed since the Renaissance Optics and chemistry go hand in hand to create a very effective means of perception ~Despite the apparent simplicity of this first definition, there are few comparable cases in which a seemingly clearly and easily delimited field--here's the viewer, there's the world; here's the instrument, there's the image of the world--has created so much confusion --Urs Stahel~Urs Stahel Paperback, 6 25 x 8 5 in /48 pgs / 11 color. 2004 г 48 стр ISBN 3908247772.
Spectral Evidence : The Photography of Trauma артикул 1144a.
Book DescriptionIn this remarkable contribution to photographic criticism and psychoanalytic literature, Ulrich Baer traces the hitherto overlooked connection between the experience of trauma and the photographic image Instead of treating trauma as a photographic "theme," Baer examines the striking parallel between those обэшм moments arrested mechanically by photography and those arrested experientially by the traumatized psyche—moments that bypass normal cognition and memory Taking as points of departure Charcot’s images of hysteria and Freud’s suggestion that the unconscious is structured like a camera, Baer shows how the invention of photography and the emergence of the modern category of "trauma" intersect Drawing on recent work in the field of trauma studies, he shows how experiences that are inherently split between their occurrence and their remembrance might register in and as photographic images In light of contemporary discussions of recovered memories and the limits of representing such catastrophes as the Holocaust, Baer examines photographs of artistic, medical, and historical subjects from the perspective of witnessing rather than merely viewing He shows how historicist approaches to photography paradoxically overlook precisely those cataclysmic experiences that define our age The photograph’s apparent immunity to time is seen as a call for a future response--a response that is prompted by the ghostly afterlife of every photograph’s subject In a moving discussion of a rare collection of color slides taken by a Nazi official in the Lodz ghetto, Baer makes us aware that it is the viewer’s responsibility to account for the spectral evidence embedded in every image. 2005 г 218 стр ISBN 0262524473.
