26 BANNOS, PAMELA. Vivian Maier: A Photographer's Life And Afterlife.
University of Chicago Press, Chicago and London: 2017. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Who was Vivian Maier? Many people know her as the reclusive Chicago nanny who wandered the city for decades, constantly snapping photographs, which were unseen until they were discovered in a seemingly abandoned storage locker. They revealed her to be an inadvertent master of twentieth-century American street photography. Not long after, the news broke that Maier had recently died and had no surviving relatives. Soon the whole world knew about her preternatural work, shooting her to stardom almost overnight. But, as Pamela Bannos reveals in this meticulous and passionate biography, this story of the nanny savant has blinded us to Maier's true achievements, as well as her intentions. Most important, Bannos argues, Maier was not a nanny who moonlighted as a photographer; she was a photographer who supported herself as a nanny. In Vivian Maier: A Photographer's Life and Afterlife, Bannos contrasts Maier's life with the mythology that strangers—mostly the men who have profited from her work—have created around her absence. Bannos shows that Maier was extremely conscientious about how her work was developed, printed, and cropped, even though she also made a clear choice never to display it. She places Maier's fierce passion for privacy alongside the recent spread of her work around the world, and she explains Maier's careful adjustments of photographic technique, while explaining how the photographs have been misconstrued or misidentified. As well, Bannos uncovers new information about Maier's immediate family, including her difficult brother, Karl—relatives that once had been thought not to exist. This authoritative and engrossing biography shows that the real story of Vivian Maier, a true visionary artist, is even more compelling than the myth. Part I: Beginnings and Endings Chapter 1: A Fractured Archive Chapter 2: A New World, a New Art Form Chapter 3: A Family Divided / Photography's Complex History Part II: The Emergence of Vivian Maier Chapter 4: Young Photographer / Final Days Chapter 5: New York Street Photographer / Viral Vivian Part III: The Reinvention of Vivian Maier Chapter 6: Mysterious Nanny Photographer Chapter 7: High Art / Downward Spiral Part IV: The Aftermath Chapter 8: The Missing Picture: Vivian's Maier's Last Thirty Years Chapter 9: Those Who Did Not Know Her Chapter 10: Who Owns Vivian Maier's Photography? Epilogue 352 pages, 30 halftones, 6 x 9. "Stories--like snapshots--are shaped by people, and for particular purposes. There's always an angle. A new biography, Vivian Maier: A Photographer's Life and Afterlife, by Pamela Bannos, strives to rescue Maier all over again, this time from the men who promulgated the Maier myth and profited off her work. . . . Almost point by point, Bannos refutes how Maier has been marketed. . . . The achievement of Bannos's intelligent, irritable self-reflexive study is in its restraint. She unseats the ghost and restores to us the woman--but in her own words and images, and without psychologizing. It's a portrait as direct as any of Maier's, and what a distinct pleasure it is to meet her gaze again." Luc Sante | Bookforum "Patiently and lucidly detailed by Pamela Bannos in her nearly forensic biography--which unties many knots and brings order to what was previously a chaotic welter of information and misinformation."--Parul Sehgal | New York Times "At last, we have a way of separating the individual from the myths that have been constructed around her. The revelation of greater context is the beating heart of Bannos's book, and she's clear from the start that she sees it as an act of feminist reclamation."--Nation "Meticulously researched. . . . Bannos's biography is a vital contribution to understanding the historical relevance of Maier's work and an important challenge to the way in which Maier's work and legacy have been represented thus far."--Publishers Weekly "By carefully analyzing the artist's images, Bannos skillfully tracks her entire adult life: work history, where she lived and traveled, and her interests, and is able to look past the mystique of the 'eccentric nanny with a camera' to tell the true Maier story. . . . The book's strengths are Bannos's exhaustive research and her ability to connect the greater history of photography in to the account of Maier's curious life. This extraordinary work is recommended for all art history and photography enthusiasts."--Library Journal "Bannos's engrossing, meticulously researched biography sensitively reconstructs Vivian Maier's very private life in conjunction with her now massive public legacy as a visionary photographer. Many questions remain and always will. However, Bannos's comprehensive narrative ensures that Vivian Maier's story and the treasure trove of her work will live on, transcending the world of photography. . . . A fascinating glimpse into the life of an eccentric, legendary photographer whose work came to prominence only with her death." Shelf Awareness for Readers "Bannos's engrossing, meticulously researched biography sensitively reconstructs Vivian Maier's very private life in conjunction with her posthumous legacy as a visionary photographer. Many questions remain and always will. However, Bannos's comprehensive narrative ensures that Vivian Maier's story and the treasure trove of her work will live on.. . . . A fascinating glimpse into the life of an eccentric, legendary photographer whose work came to prominence only after her death."--Shelf Awareness

30 BEHDAD, ALI & GARTLAN, LUKE (EDITORS) Photography's Orientalism: New Essays On Colonial Representation.
Getty Research Institute, Los Angeles: 2013. Issues & Debates Series. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
The Middle East played a critical role in the development of photography as a new technology and an art form. Likewise, photography was instrumental in cultivating and maintaining Europe's distinctively Orientalist vision of the Middle East. As new advances enhanced the versatility of the medium, nineteenth-century photographers were able to mass-produce images to incite and satisfy the demands of the region's burgeoning tourist industry and the appetites of armchair travelers in Europe. In this way, the evolution of modern photography fueled an interest in visual contact with the rest of the world. Photography's Orientalism offers the first in-depth cultural study of the works of European and non-European photographers active in the Middle East and India, focusing on the relationship between photographic, literary, and historical representations of this region and beyond. The essays explore the relationship between art and politics by considering the connection between the European presence there and aesthetic representations produced by traveling and resident photographers, thereby contributing to how the history of photography is understood. 7 x 10 inches, 27 color and 45 black and white illustrations, 2 line drawings. Ali Behdad is John Charles Hillis Professor of Literature and chair of the English Department at the University of California, Los Angeles. His books include Belated Travelers: Orientalism in the Age of Colonial Dissolution (Duke, 1994) and A Forgetful Nation: On Immigration and Cultural Identity in the United States (Duke, 2005). Luke Gartlan is a lecturer in the School of Art History at the University of St Andrews, Scotland. His recent publications include "'Bronzed and Muscular Bodies': Jinrikishas, Tattooed Bodies, and Yokohama Photography," in Transculturation in British Art, 1770 -1930 (Ashgate, 2012). He is also editor designate (2013 -14) of the journal History of Photography. "Nineteenth-century Indian photographers made portraits that borrow heavily from the conventions of Mughal miniatures. Early 20th-century Indian photographers did not wince from shooting graphic images of pro-independence protestors shot down by British Army rifles in demonstrations. And most interesting of all, this book is full of wonderful Ottoman photos—portraits, journalism, and magnificent panoramic landscapes that are essentially documents of empire, attesting to the depth, breadth and ethnic variety of the Sultan's domains." -- Art & Antiques

38 BISNEY, JOHN & J. L. PICKERING. Moonshots And Snapshots Of Project Apollo: A Rare Photographic History.
University of New Mexico Press, Albuquerque. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Winner of the 2016 New Mexico-Arizona Book Award for Science Winner of the Bronze Medal for Science in the 2016 Independent Publisher (IPPY) Book Awards In this companion volume to John Bisney and J. L. Pickering's extraordinary book of rare photographs from the Mercury and Gemini missions, the authors now present the rest of the Golden Age of US manned space flight with a photographic history of Project Apollo. Beginning in 1967, Moonshots and Snapshots of Project Apollo chronicles the program's twelve missions and its two follow-ons, Skylab and the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project. The authors draw from rarely seen NASA, industry, and news media images, taking readers to the Moon, on months-long odysseys above Earth, and finally on the first international manned space flight in 1975. The book pairs many previously unpublished images from Pickering's unmatched collection of Cold War-era space photographs with extended captions—identifying many NASA, military, and contract workers and participants for the first time—to provide comprehensive background information about the exciting climax and conclusion of the Space Race. 9 x 12 in., 272 pages, 1,025 color photos. John Bisney and J. L. Pickering are also the authors of Spaceshots and Snapshots of Projects Mercury and Gemini: A Rare Photographic History. John Bisney is a correspondent who covered the space program for more than thirty years for CNN, the Discovery Channel, and Sirius/XM Radio, among other news outlets. He lives in St. Petersburg, Florida. J. L. Pickering lives in Bloomington, Illinois. He is a space-flight historian who has been archiving rare space images and historic artifacts for some forty years. "These 'Moonshots and Snapshots' provide a new perspective on NASA's Project Apollo. . . . Bisney and Pickering don't just focus on the iconic images that we all recognize; instead, they opened their lens to the machinery behind the missions (computers and other hardware), the astronauts' pranks, and the rank-and-file NASA workers who made it all happen." --Modern Notion Daily "Together, ( Spaceshots and Snapshots of Projects Mercury and Gemini and Moonshots and Snapshots of Project Apollo) are a treat for any space buff and, for the true believers, a reminder that even greater journeys may lie just ahead." --American Scientist "J. L. Pickering and John Bisney have done it again! . . . Moonshots and Snapshots of Project Apollo comes with SpaceFlight Insider's highest recommendation. It is an excellent follow-on to Spaceshots and Snapshots of Projects Mercury and Gemini: A Rare Photographic History as well as an exceptional addition to any space enthusiast's library." --SpaceFlight Insider "Pairs many previously unpublished images from Pickering's collection with captions that identify many NASA, military, and contract workers." --Quest "In resurrecting many obscure photos the authors have provided a valuable, and highly desirable, compendium of outstanding pictures from an age when each flight saw the release of perhaps fewer than one-hundred stock shots." --Spaceflight

A richly human book whose more than 180 photographs of New York in the first half of the twentieth century propel us on an evocative visual journey that from the very outset leads straight to the heart of the matter: the people who lived the turbulent, romantic, sensitive, funny, and sometimes painful or heroic lives that are New York. The photographs are thematically arranged (New Yorkers, immigrants, trades and professions, Manhattan, and transportation), and within these five sections, the images often combine in almost musical progression to provide a poignant portrait of a people whose lives are brought forth from the shadow of anonymity.
