This is the first book to reproduce the definitive set of 937 rarely seen and classic images by Robert Capa (1913-54), one of the most influential documentary photographers of the twentieth century. Capa, a founding member of Magnum photographic agency, had the mind of a passionate and committed journalist and the eye of an artist. His lifework, consisting of more than 70,000 negatives, constitutes an unparalleled documentation of a crucial 22-year period (1932-54), encompassing some of the most catastrophic and dramatic events of the last century. This book represents the most definitive selection of Capa's work ever published - 937 photographs meticulously selected by his brother Cornell Capa (himself a noted Life photographer), and his biographer, Richard Whelan. The photographs, arranged in chronological order as stories and accompanied by brief commentaries, reveal the dramatic shifts in location and subject matter that Capa experienced from day to day - from war-torn Israel to Pablo Picasso on a sunny beach in France, and from Ernest Hemingway carousing in London to Capa's historic images of the Allied landing on Omaha Beach in Normandy in 1944.

„If your photographs aren't good enough, you're not close enough“: Ein paradigmatischer Vergleich innovativer Konfliktfotografie am Beispiel der Werke Robert Capas und James Nachtweys

Robert Capa und James Nachtwey zählen zu den renommiertesten Fotojournalisten ihrer jeweiligen Zeit. Obwohl ihre Arbeiten mehr als ein Vierteljahrhundert auseinanderliegen verbindet sie ein zentrales Merkmal: Nähe. Capa erklärte einst, der Weg zu guten Bildern läge in der Nähe zum Motiv - eine Maxime, die auch Nachtweys Fotografien zugrunde zu liegen scheint. Wie legen die beiden Fotografen den Begriff der Nähe jedoch aus? Ist die Nähe physisch oder emotional? Unterscheiden sich die Auffassungen? Die vorliegende Studie versucht, einen ersten Ansatz für einen Vergleich der beiden Konfliktfotografen zu finden. Nach einem kurzen Abriss über die Geschichte der Kriegsfotografie, Bildethik, Lebensläufe der Fotografen und Eckdaten der abgebildeten Konflikte wurden in einer quantitativen Inhaltsanalyse über 900 Fotografien begutachtet, um daraus Rückbezüge auf die Proximität der Fotojournalisten zu ihren Sujets zu ziehen und einen Ausblick auf weitere Vertiefungsmöglichkeiten zum Thema zu bieten. Damit begibt sich die Studie auf ein wenig erforschtes Terrain der Kommunikationswissenschaft, indem die Kriegsfotografie auf einzelne Personen bezogen aufgearbeitet wird.

New Makers of Modern Culture

Author: Justin Wintle

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 1136768815

Category: Reference

Page: 1805

View: 9502

New Makers of Modern Culture is the successor to the classic reference works Makers of Modern Culture and Makers of Nineteenth-Century Culture, published by Routledge in the early 1980s. The set was extremely successful and continues to be used to this day, due to the high quality of the writing, the distinguished contributors, and the cultural sensitivity shown in the selection of those individuals included. New Makers of Modern Culture takes into full account the rise and fall of reputation and influence over the last twenty-five years and the epochal changes that have occurred: the demise of Marxism and the collapse of the Soviet Union; the rise and fall of postmodernism; the eruption of Islamic fundamentalism; the triumph of the Internet. Containing over eight hundred essay-style entries, and covering the period from 1850 to the present, New Makers of Modern Culture includes artists, writers, dramatists, architects, philosophers, anthropologists, scientists, sociologists, major political figures, composers, film-makers and many other culturally significant individuals and is thoroughly international in its purview. Next to Karl Marx is Bob Marley, next to John Ruskin is Salman Rushdie, alongside Darwin is Luigi Dallapiccola, Deng Xiaoping runs shoulders with Jacques Derrida as do Julia Kristeva and Kropotkin. Once again, Wintle has enlisted the services of many distinguished writers and leading academics, such as Sam Beer, Bernard Crick, Edward Seidensticker and Paul Preston. In a few cases, for example Michael Holroyd and Philip Larkin, contributors are themselves the subject of entries. With its global reach, New Makers of Modern Culture provides a multi-voiced witness of the contemporary thinking world. The entries carry short bibliographies and there is thorough cross-referencing. There is an index of names and key terms.
