Offerings: the Art of Brom
Collins & Brown, 2001. Hardcover. Fine Condition/Very Good. 9781855859180 Clean unmarked pages, firm binding; some short visible surface scrapes on front of jacket, 3/4" tear to rear lower edge. A very pleasurable collection of work from the noted fantasy artist, published in 2001. There is little in the way of informative text in the book, the majority of it's pages are taken up with some 100 glossy, full-colour illustrations of the artists work; Bron works with traditional materials, though no details of media or dimensions are given – not even a directory or index at the back – though it's safe to assume most are painted with oils on board (either hardboard, illustration board or prepared canvas panel). A smattering of pencil sketches are also included – preparation works and concept figures.(Reader review) 128 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Art & Design; ISBN/EAN: 9781855859180.

 PETAR BAKI, Eyewitness: Hungarian Photography in the Twentieth Century
PETAR BAKI
Eyewitness: Hungarian Photography in the Twentieth Century
Royal Academy of Arts, 2011. Softcover. Fine Condition. 9781905711772 Clean unmarked pages, feint line to side closed text block. A well-cared for copy. At a crucial moment between two world wars, in a country destabilized by political turmoil, five men changed the face of photojournalism and art photography, and inspired the world. With their groundbreaking shots, Brassai, Capa, Kertesz, Moholy-Nagy, and Munkasci radically redefined photographic practice and theory, giving rise to iconic images and ushering in the modern era. In this stunning book, essays by leading authorities examine the ways in which the extraordinary activity of these five men established Hungary as a crucible of art photography at the time, as well as the influence they have had on succeeding generations of photographers. Illustrated with their major works and a number by their contemporaries--in many cases using archival prints--the book is a landmark study of modern photography. Praise for Eyewitness: With their keen eyes and dramatic compositions, Capa, Brassa , Andre Kertesz, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Martin Munkasci, and forty-five of their less-famous contemporaries put an indelible stamp on journalism, fashion, and war photography. Their rich black-and-white images are elegantly reproduced in this arresting book. 239 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Art & Design; ISBN/EAN: 9781905711772. Inventory No: dscf9923.

 ELS BARENTS, Valérie Belin
ELS BARENTS
Valérie Belin
Steidl, 2007. Hardcover. Fine Condition. 9783865214652 Clean bright pages, very slight rubbing to corners of front board. Almost as new. Valérie Belin's 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. 312 pages.
