Lee Miller photographed innumerable women during her career, first as a fashion photographer and then as a journalist during the Second World War, documenting the social consequences of the conflict, particularly the impact of the war on women across Europe. Her work as a war photographer is perhaps that for which she is best remembered in fact she was among the 20th century's most important photographers on the subject. Published to coincide with an exhibition at the Imperial War Museum, Lee Miller: a woman's war tells the story beyond the battlefields of the Second World War by way of Millers extraordinary photographs of the women whose lives were affected. Introductions by Hilary Roberts and Antony Penrose, Lee Millers son, precede Millers work, which is divided into chronological chapters. Millers photographs, many previously unpublished, are accompanied by extended captions that place the images within the context of womens roles within the landscape of war.

Shanebrook, Taryn Simon, Eric Taubman, Geore Tice, Jonathan Torgovnik, Alex Webb, Rebecca Norris Webb, Stephen Wilkes -- AFTERWORD.
"From Darkroom to Daylight explores how the dramatic change from film to digital has affected photographers and their work. Harvey Wang interviewed and photographed more than 40 important photographers and prominent figures in the field, including Jerome Liebling, George Tice, Elliott Erwitt, David Goldblatt, Sally Mann, Gregory Crewdson, Susan Meiselas and Eugene Richards, as well as innovators Steven Sasson, who built the first digital camera while at Kodak, and Thomas Knoll, who, along with his brother, created Photoshop. This collection of personal narratives and portraits is both a document of this critical moment and a unique history of photography. Much of Wang's work has been about disappearance--of trades, neighborhoods, ways of life--and to live through this transition in his own craft has enabled him to illuminate the state of the art as both an insider and a documentary photographer."-- Publisher's web site.

War is beautiful : the New York Times pictorial guide to the glamour of armed conflict*

November 16, 2015
Shields, David, 1956- compiler, author.
111 pages : color illustrations ; 24 x 30 cm
Citations index: page 101.
"*(in which the author explains why he no longer read the New York Times)"--T.p.
"Bestselling author David Shields analyzed over a decade's worth of front-page war photographs from The New York Times and came to a shocking conclusion: the photo-editing process of the 'paper of record,' by way of pretty, heroic, and lavishly aesthetic image selection, pulls the wool over the eyes of its readers; Shields forces us to face not only the the media's complicity in dubious and catastrophic military campaigns but our own as well. This powerful media mouthpiece, the mighty Times, far from being a check on governmental power, is in reality a massive amplifier for its dark forces by virtue of the way it aestheticizes warfare. Anyone baffled by the willful American involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan can't help but see in this book how eagerly and invariably the Times led the way in making the case for these wars through the manipulation of its visuals. Shields forces the reader to weigh the consequences of our own passivity in the face of these images' opiatic numbing. The photographs gathered in War Is Beautiful, often beautiful and always artful, are filters of reality rather than the documentary journalism they purport to be."-- Provided by publisher
