292 NORFLEET, BARBARA P. When We Liked Ike: Looking For Postwar America.
W. W. Norton & Company, New York: 2001. 0393019667 / 9780393019667 First Edition. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Very good condition. 
A historical record in words and pictures of American society in the years following the Second World War. After World War II, the prevalent self image among America's white middle class was one of affluence, moral superiority, and contentment. This image is reflected in photographs in both advertising and the media during the late 1940s and 1950s showing perfect citizens and their families at work and at play. Many of these apparently candid photographs were in fact created by professional studio photographers& 151;to portray the way most middle class Americans wanted to present themselves. But what many contemporary artists and intellectuals saw instead of this idyllic picture was widespread complacency and conformity, as well as racism, poverty, political witch hunts, and alienation. Their writings are excerpted here, juxtaposed with images depicting domestic bliss and wealth. This dissonance between the words of the social critics who emphasized our problems and discontents and the photographic images of how we wanted to see ourselves make the subsequent upheavals of the 1960s understandable. Includes 170 duotone photographs.

294 NORRIS, DEBRA HESS & GUTIERREZ, JENNIFER JAE. Issues In The Conservation Of Photographs.
Getty Publications, Los Angeles: 2010. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
This volume is the first publication to chronicle the emergence and systematic development of photograph conservation as a profession. In seventy-two essential texts from the nineteenth century to the present day, this anthology collects key writings that have influenced both the philosophical and the practical aspects of conserving photographs. The materials were carefully selected by the editors along with an advisory board of international experts and include some—particularly the lectures, memos, and letters—that have never been published. Many of the topics—safe environmental parameters, silver image permanence, and proper treatment methods—have been debated since the introduction of photography. By promoting an understanding of these issues, this volume seeks to advance the education of rising conservation professionals, inspire new scholarship, and contribute to the field's ongoing evolution. Debra Hess Norris is vice provost for graduate and professional education, chair of the Art Conservation Department, and professor of photograph conservation at the University of Delaware. Jennifer Jae Gutierrez is assistant professor in the Art Conservation Department at the University of Delaware.

296 ODO, DAVID; EDWARDS, ELIZABETH (FOREWARD) The Journey Of "a Good Type": From Artistry To Ethnography In Early Japanese Photographs.
Harvard University Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts and London England: 2015. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
When Japan opened its doors to the West in the 1860s, delicately hand-tinted photographic prints of Japanese people and landscapes were among its earliest and most popular exports. Renowned European photographers Raimund von Stillfried and Felice Beato established studios in Japan in the 1860s; the work was soon taken up by their Japanese protgs and successors Uchida Kuichi, Kusakabe Kimbei, and others. Hundreds of these photographs, collected by travelers from the Boston area, were eventually donated to Harvard's Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology, where they were archived for their ethnographic content and as scientific evidence of an exotic culture. In this elegant volume, visual anthropologist David Odo examines the Peabody's collection of Japanese photographs and the ways in which such objects were produced, acquired, and circulated in the nineteenth century. His innovative study reveals the images' shifting and contingent uses—from tourist souvenir to fine art print to anthropological "type" record—were framed by the desires and cultural preconceptions of makers and consumers alike. Understood as both images and objects, the prints embody complex issues of history, culture, representation, and exchange. David Odo is Director of Student Programs and Research Curator of University Collections Initiatives at the Harvard Art Museums and a Lecturer in the Department of Anthropology at Harvard University. Elizabeth Edwards is Research Professor in Photographic History and Director of the Photographic History Research Centre at De Montfort University in Leicester, England.
