Summary: One of the great New York street photographers, Rudolph (Rudy) Burckhardt (1914-1999) was an astonishingly versatile artist, working not only as a photographer but also as a filmmaker and a painter. Yet his work has remained largely unknown outside a small circle of enthusiasts. Now, with this comprehensive monograph, the full range and brilliance of Burckhardt's photography is revealed: not only his telling street scenes, which capture the energy and chaotic beauty of the city, and his penetrating portraits of artists in their studios, but also his views of European cities, studies of children and the female nude, and views of the natural world. With a thoughtful text by the well-known essayist and novelist Phillip Lopate, this volume dedicated to the multitalented Burckhardt, whom poet John Ashbery hailed as ""a subterranean monument, "" will be a revelation to anyone with a serious interest in contemporary culture-and a feast for the eyes of anyone who loves great photography., New York : Harry N.

Acclaimed Los Angeles-based photographer Tierney Gearon (born 1963) has gained both critical and commercial recognition for her powerful, intense and colorful photographs, which have often taken her children as their subject. After an early career as a model and commercial photographer, Gearon began to train her camera on her own family, and was thrust into the spotlight in 2001 when she was featured in the acclaimed 'I Am a Camera' exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery in London, in which two nude portraits of her sons were included, leading to outcry in the conservative press. Since her controversial debut, Gearon has been pushing the envelope of contemporary photography. Her new book takes the form of a children's alphabet book. Each letter of the alphabet is illustrated with a photograph by Gearon that animates the letter: A is 'Airplane Adventure,' B is 'Bear Boy,' C becomes 'Clown Car,' etc. At once an inventive photo-book and enchanting take on the children's alphabet book, this volume is Gearon's most charming and lighthearted work to date., Damiani, New York: American Tract Society, 1846.

An avant-garde magazine, these volumes contain prints ranging from photos of children, bananas, kittens, and nude women, to color pictures of Japanese painting and medieval "Hours" books. Each magazine also contains historical, satiric, cultural, and non-fiction articles, as well as poetry and fiction. Quite an interesting glimpse of the intellectual ferment of the '30s. Most pages of these six magazines are solid, clean, and tight, though a few have moderate foxing. The brightly-colored binding is firmly stapled to each copy, and the corners are sharp. However, the covers are moderately soiled around the edges. Photos available if desired. . Very Good. 1937., David A.

A "Quill" imprint from Morrow. This work was dedicated to Bob Newhart. Callahan's appeal is broad and national, and his following keeps growing. Now, in this latest collection of twisted and refreshingly politically incorrect catoons, Callahan is at his most uproarious. Just think of what he'll do with O.J., lawyers, cat lovers, and others in Freaks of Nature. From Wikipedia: "John Michael Callahan (February 5, 1951, Portland, Oregon July 24, 2010), was a cartoonist, artist, and musician noted for dealing with macabre subjects and physical disabilities. Callahan became a quadriplegic in an auto accident at 21. The accident happened in Callahan's car after a day of drinking alcoholic beverages. His car was being driven by a man with whom he was bar hopping. Following his accident, he became a cartoonist, drawing by clutching a pen between both hands. His visual artistic style was simplistic and often rough, although still legible. It has been likened to that of William Steig, James Thurber, Richard Condie, and Ben Wicks. Callahan's cartoons dealt with subjects often considered taboo. His black humor may be exemplified by the title of his "quasi-memoir", Will the Real John Callahan Please Stand Up? . The subject matter and treatment of his cartoons shares something with the work of Charles Addams, Gahan Wilson, and especially Charles Rodrigues, although it is much more aggressive than even the Playboy cartoons by these cartoonists. For 27 years until his death, Callahan's work appeared in Willamette Week, whose cartoons occasionally led to boycotts and protests against the newspaper. Callahan scoffed at the reactions of critics who labeled his work politically incorrect, while he delighted in the positive reactions he received from fans with disabilities. My only compass for whether I ve gone too far is the reaction I get from people in wheelchairs, or with hooks for hands, Callahan said. Like me, they are fed up with people who presume to speak for the disabled. All the pity and the patronizing. That s what is truly detestable. Two animated cartoon series have been based on Callahan's cartoons: Pelswick, a children's show on Nickelodeon; and Quads, a Canadian-Australian co-production, which retains the violence, joie de vivre, and political incorrectness of his cartoons. The main character, who "walked out of a bar and into a car, " as the theme song relates, is a quadriplegic who won a large settlement from the rich driver who ran over him, and lives in a mansion with his buxom girlfriend, gay Australian physical therapist, and a cast of fellow handicapees. Their outrageous adventures infuriate the neighbours, which include an angry nun, the milquetoast millionaire who originally ran over the main character, and his domineering, Joan Riversesque wife. Friends said Callahan realized that his cartooning was a form of counseling, which led to him pursuing a master's degree in counseling at Portland State University. However, his deteriorating health prevented him from finishing his first term. In 2005 Dutch film maker Simone de Vries made a documentary on Callahan, 'Raak me waar ik voelen kan' ('Touch me someplace I can feel'). Callahan died on July 24, 2010, following surgery for chronic bed sores, although his brother stated the causes of his death were complications of quadriplegia and respiratory problems. John Callahan worked on nudes and a portrait project, shown in several galleries throughout its progression. Callahan was also a songwriter. He released his first CD in 2006. The Independent of London calls his songs "Beautiful, but dark". He wrote all the music and lyrics himself and was backed up by many notable musicians. A Dutch film crew recorded the studio sessions in which Callahan played a simplified piano version of "Roll Away The Day". The album is produced by blues musician Terry Robb, with a special cameo appearance by Tom Waits. John Callahan was adopted as an., William Morrow, 1995
