Stanley Greene: Black Passport by Stanley Greene and Teun van der Heijden (Author) (Paperback - Oct 26, 2009)
Stanley Greene: Black PassportStanley Greene: Black Passport by Teun van der Heijden and Stanley Greene (Author) (Paperback - Mar 31, 2010) The archetype of the war correspondent is freighted with an outsize heroic mythos to which world-renowned conflict photographer Stanley Greene is no stranger. Black Passport is his autobiographical monograph-cum-scrapbook and it transports the viewer behind the news as Greene reflects upon his career, oscillating between the relative safety of life in the West and the traumas of wars abroad. This glimpse of the polarities that have comprised Greene's life raises essential questions about the role of the photojournalist, as well as concerns about its repercussions: what motivates someone to willingly confront death and misery? To do work that risks one's life? Is it political engagement, or a sense of commitment to telling difficult stories? Or does being a war photographer simply satisfy a yearning for adventure? Black Passport offers an experience that is both exceptionally personal and ostensibly objective. Built around Greene's narrating monologue, the book's 26 short, nonsequential "scenes" are each illustrated by a portfolio of his work.

Passages: Photographs in Africa by Angela Fisher and Carol Beckwith
For Passages: Photographs in Africa, the Brooklyn Museum of Art assembled the highlights of last year's beautiful photographic record of African rituals and religious rites, African Ceremonies. It's a wonderful sampling of the authors' 30 years of research and travel throughout the African continent.
Minimalism by James Meyer ~ Minimalism offers the first straightforward summary of the artists associated with the movement pioneered in the late 1960s. In unusually accessible prose, the author uses such seminal minimalists as Donald Judd, Dan Flavin, and Sol LeWitt, as well as their successors, to outline the shifting, often warring definitions of this groundbreaking form.
Hypnerotomachia Poliphili: The Strife of Love in a Dream by Francesco Colonna ~ Five hundred years ago, Renaissance intellectuals were abuzz over what has become one of the most influential art books in the world. To celebrate the book's half-millennial anniversary, the bizarre, erotically charged romance has been translated into English for the first time, accompanied bythe 174 woodcuts of the original, which influenced buildings and gardens of the Renaissance.

IN MUSEUMS

Chardin by Pierre Rosenberg ~ Chardin's still lifes and genre scenes have been deeply appreciated for centuries for what Chardin author Pierre Rosenberg calls the grave, silent quality that encourages the onlooker to silent reverie. Jugs and bowls, glasses, cherries, housemaids, boys at play, dogs and cats--all are painted without a touch of irony, embellishment, or drama
