This catalogue presents an important new trend in contemporary photography, offering an opportunity to define the concerns of a younger generation of artists and contextualize them within the history of art and culture. Drawing deeply on the legacies of conceptual and commercial photography, these artists pursue a largely studio-based approach to still-life photography that centres on the representation of objects, often printed matter such as books, magazines and record covers. The result is an image imbued with poetic and evocative personal significance - a sort of displaced self-portraiture - that resonates with larger cultural and historical meanings. Driven by a deep interest in the medium of photography, these artists investigate the nature, laws and magic of film photography at the moment of its disappearance in our digital age. They attempt to rematerialize the photograph through meticulous printing, using film and other disappearing photo technologies, and by creating photo-sculptures and installations. Artists include Claudia Angelmaier, Erica Baum, Anne Collier, Moyra Davey, Leslie Hewitt, Elad Lassry, Lisa Oppenheim, Erin Shirreff, Kathrin Sonntag and Sara VanDerBeek.

Chinese poetry has a long history of interaction with the visual arts. Classical aesthetic thought held that painting, calligraphy, and poetry were cross-fertilizing and mutually enriching. What happened when the Chinese poetic tradition encountered photography, a transformative technology and presumably realistic medium that reshaped seeing and representing the world? Shengqing Wu explores how the new medium of photography was transformed by Chinese aesthetic culture. She details the complex negotiations between poetry and photography in the late Qing and early Republican eras, examining the ways traditional textual forms collaborated with the new visual culture. Drawing on extensive archival research into illustrated magazines, poetry collections, and vintage photographs, Photo Poetics analyzes a wide range of practices and genres, including self-representation in portrait photography; gifts of inscribed photographs; mass-media circulation of images of beautiful women; and photography of ghosts, immortals, and imagined landscapes. Wu argues that the Chinese lyrical tradition provided rich resources for artistic creativity, self-expression, and embodied experience in the face of an increasingly technological and image-oriented society. An interdisciplinary study spanning literary studies, visual culture, and media history, Photo Poetics is an original account of media culture in early twentieth-century China and the formation of Chinese literary and visual modernities.

This important new monograph provides an overview of Holly Roberts' work during the past ten years. Roberts' odyssey with the painted photograph began in the mid-1970s. She found that painting over a slick photographic surface, she was able to manipulate the paint -- scrape it, scratch it, even wipe it away -- with the luxury of never losing the underlying image. A modern pioneer of the method, Roberts ups the ante with an understanding of human dynamics just short of psychic and a technique that appears unstudied, but is in fact, quietly accomplished. The combination results in deeply resonant imagemaking, both haunting and profound. Holly Roberts is the recipient of two N.E.A. Grants, and the Friends of Photography Ferguson Grant. Her work has been widely exhibited throughout the United States, and is included in such permanent collections as the Center for Creative Photography, Tucson, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Holly Roberts: Works 1989 to 1999 is the artist's second monograph, and contains essays by T. D. Mobley, Robert H. Wilson, and Steve Yates.

The celebrated American poet Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) began photographing in the late 1940s when he purchased a small, second-hand Kodak camera. For the next fifteen years he made intimate and often exuberant portraits of himself, his friends, and lovers, including the writers and poets Jack Kerouac, William Burroughs, and Gregory Corso as well as Beat personality Neal Cassady. He abandoned photography in 1963 and took it up again in the 1980s, when he was encouraged by photographers Berenice Abbott and Robert Frank to reprint his earlier work and make new portraits; these included more images of long-time friends as well as other acquaintances such as painters Larry Rivers and Francesco Clemente and musician Bob Dylan. Ginsberg's photographs form a compelling portrait of the Beat and counterculture generation from the 1950s to the 1990s, tracing their arch from youthful men to aging, often spent, figures. Far more historical documents, his photographs and the extensive inscriptions he added to them years later preserve what he referred to as "the sacredness of the moment", the often joyous communion of friends and the poignancy of looking back to intensely felt times. More than seventy prints, including a few "drugstore" prints made in the early 1950s, are brilliantly reproduced in this book, accompanied by Sarah Greenough's essay on Ginsberg's photography in relation to his poetry and other photographers of the time, a chronology of his photographic activity, and selections from interviews with Ginsberg between 1958 and 1996. AUTHOR: Sarah Greenough is senior curator and head of the department of photographs at the National Gallery of Art. She is the author of Looking In: Robert Frank's: 'The Americans' and numerous other publications on photography. SELLING POINTS: * Now available in paperback, this intimate "family album" is a revealing photographic look at the Beat Generation as chronicled by the movement's great poet, Allen Ginsberg. 70 tritones, 30 duotones, 5 colour images

Written for the lay reader as well as for academic literary theorists, this book bridges the gulf between the artistic avant-garde in music, visual arts, and experimental literature and the general pub­lic. Higgins delves into multiple areas, but here is an example of one kind of poem he works with: those pieces that move like this those pieces i say are snowflakes i say those pieces that move like this those pieces Along with many other artists—John Cage, Merce Cunningham, Robert Rau­schenberg, and Jackson Mac Low come to mind—Dick Higgins has investigated and invented a variety of genres and forms, working especially in intermedia, the fusion of two or more discrete media. His poetics travel some distance from the poetry of the past. Here he uses the fu­sion of the “receiver’s” and the artist’s horizons, their knowledge, feelings, ex­periences, and imaginings to provide a vivid account of artistic experimentation over the last thirty years.
