"Abandoned structures are places that open the imagination and invite interpretation. Distressed wood and weathered remnants of human life are crossed by time and animal tracks, inviting one to picture what once was. Abandoned homes and buildings offer a unique, distressed beauty. While often overlooked by passers-by, their skeletal remains act as the perfect subject for the lens of a camera, quietly waiting to be captured and shared. Abandoned Kentucky explores this haunting narrative through its display of photos by abandoned building photographer Jay Farrell. Readers are encouraged to explore the forgotten corners of the state, see the world through different eyes, and take the long road home."--Back cover.

Dog photography : how to capture the love, fun, and whimsy of man's best friend

July 20, 2018
Bryant, Margaret, author.
127 pages : color illustrations ; 25 cm
Includes index.
Award-winning photographer Margaret Bryant (Dallas/Fort Worth, TX) makes capturing dog portraits look easy--but anyone who has aspired to take portraits of a four-legged friend knows it is a skill that is hard-won. In fact, creating memorable dog portraits requires more than a good camera and a squeaky toy. Dogs need to feel comfortable before they reveal their personalities. To get them comfortable, a photographer needs to recognize when a dog is stressed and when a dog is relaxed. In this book, Bryant teaches photographers how to recognize subtle but important dog behaviors and provides tips to help them modify their own behavior to "talk" back to the dog and set the stage for great dog portraiture. After providing tips for helping a dog to relax, Bryant moves on to share techniques for posing individual dogs and groups. She includes myriad images to share inspiring ideas that help to showcase the personality of the pet. She also offers ideas for getting the dog's attention and getting reactions and desired behaviors on cue. Finally, she offers both simple and elaborate ideas for setups that might be used when photographing dogs.

Berenice Abbott : a life in photography

April 17, 2018
Van Haaften, Julia, author.
New York : W.W. Norton & Company, [2018]
xix, 634 pages : illustrations ; 25 cm
Berenice Abbott is to American photography what Georgia O'Keeffe is to painting or Willa Cather to letters. Abbott's sixty-year career established her not only as a master of American photography but also as a teacher, writer, archivist, and inventor. A teenage rebel from Ohio, Abbott escaped to Paris - photographing, in Sylvia Beach's words, "everyone who was anyone" - before returning to New York as the Roaring Twenties ended. She soon fell in love with art critic Elizabeth McCausland, with whom she would spend thirty years of her life. Abbott's best known work, "Changing New York," documented the city's 1930s metamorphosis. She next turned to science as a subject, culminating in work important to America's 1950s "space race" with the Soviet Union. This biography secures Abbott's place in the histories of photography and modern art while framing her accomplishments as a female artist and entrepreneur.

Sally Mann : a thousand crossings

March 26, 2018
331 pages : illustrations ; 30 cm
Catalog of an exhibition held at National Gallery of Art, Washington, March 4-May 28, 2018, Peabody Essex Museum, Salem, Massachusetts, June 30-September, 23, 2018, J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, November 20, 2018-February 10, 2019, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, March 3-May 27, 2019, Jeu de paume, Paris, June 17-September 22, 2019 and High Museum of Art, Atlanta, October 19, 2019-January 12, 2020.
Writing with photographs: Sally Mann's ode to the South, 1969-2017 / Sarah Greenough -- Family -- Flashes of the finite: Sally Mann's familiar terrain -- The land -- The Earth remembers: landscape and history in the work of Sally Mann / Drew Gilpin Faust -- Last measure -- Abide with me: the color of humanity in Sally Mann's world / Hilton Als -- Abide with me -- Torn from time itself: Sally Mann's new avenues from old processes / Malcolm Daniel -- What remains.
For more than 40 years, Sally Mann has made experimental, elegiac, and hauntingly beautiful photographs that explore the overarching themes of existence: memory, desire, death, the bonds of family, and nature's magisterial indifference to human endeavor. What unites this broad body of work-portraits, still lifes, landscapes, and other studies-is that it is all "bred of a place," the American South. Mann, who is a native of Lexington, Virginia, has long written about what it means to live in the South and to be identified as a Southerner. Using her deep love of her homeland and her knowledge of its historically fraught heritage, she asks powerful, provocative questions-about history, identity, race, and religion-that reverberate across geographic and national boundaries. Organized into five sections-family, landscape, battlefields, legacy, and mortality-and including many works not previously exhibited or published, Sally Mann: A Thousand Crossings is a sweeping overview of Mann's artistic achievement of the past four decades. It is also a focused exploration of how the legacy of the South-as both homeland and graveyard, refuge and battleground-emerges within her work as a powerful and provocative force that continues to shape American identity and experience.
