Description:
Vietnam, Thailand, and elsewhere in Asia as well as the United States, Europe, and the Middle East ca. 1964-1974: Compiled by Jacob Harris, an American who served as a Senior Police Advisor in Vietnam and Thailand during the Vietnam War, 1964 - 1974, 1964 - 1974. First edition. A large and remarkable archive of images from Vietnam and Thailand, covering the decade from the Gulf of Tonkin incident and the beginning of the buildup of American forces in Vietnam to a year before the evacuation of the American embassy. Most notable are the many images showing the training of local security forces by American civil and military advisors. The collection was compiled by Jacob Harris, an employee of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Office of Public Safety (OPS), whose task was to train Vietnamese and Thai police and counterinsurgency forces. Most of the images, in the form of photographs and photographic slides, were created by Harris, his wife, or his associates, and illustrate… Read More

--- (...) Les photographies qui sont reproduites dans ce volume sont l'oeuvre de Frédéric Boissonnas. C'est avec lui qu'au printemps de 1912, songeant à donner une nouvelle édition de ses Phéniciens et l'Odyssée, Victor Bérard entreprit de refaire le périple d'Ulysse dont, par une patiente étude, il s'était efforcé d'identifier toutes les étapes. Dans cette Méditerranée où rien ne change, il put retrouver intacts les sites et les paysages qui rendaient tout leur sens aux descriptions du Poète. (...)

Description:
Harry N. Abrams, 2018. New, still shrink wrapped/NEW. NEW, shrink-wrapped Ships from Hawaii with Priority Mail, not slow Media Mail For more than 40 years, Sally Mann (b 1951) 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, uses her deep love of her homeland and her knowledge of its historically fraught heritage to ask powerful, provocative questions-about history, identity, race, and religion-that reverberate across geographic and national boundaries Organized into five sections-Family, The Land, Last Measure, Abide with Me, and What Remains-and including many works not previously exhibited or published, Sally Mann: A Thousand Crossings is a… Read More

Melbourne: Currey O'Neil, 1983. Not paginated. 20.5cm x 21.5cm. Many colour photos by Ellis of sunbathers and Australian beach life along with his commentary. Pictorial card wrappers. The ex libris stamp of Beechworth artist Brian Seidel on flyleaf. Scarce. *One of the images in Life is a Beach is a rear view of an unnamed artist painting at Cathedral Rock, Victoria, in 1981. It is evident from a three-page feature article by Rennie Ellis in The Bulletin (December 26, 1989/January 2, 1990 issue) that that artist is Barry Humphries. In "No Glads By Request" Ellis photographs and discusses the work of Humphries, the painter. Also included with the book and Bulletin magazine is Mossgreen Gallery's fold-out brochure for its exhibition This Is The Show: Rennie Ellis, held at the gallery in early 2012. It features several striking images from the Rennie Ellis Photographic Archive and an article by Robert McFarlane. . First Edition. Soft Cover. Very Good.
