Seeing America: Women Photographers Between the Wars - primeira edição

2000, ISBN: 0813121329

Edição encadernada, ID: 9101147708

[EAN: 9780813121321], Gebraucht, sehr guter Zustand, [PU: University Press of Kentucky, Lexington, KY], COLLECTIBLE, Jacket, Cloth, xi, 360 pp., illus., biblio., index; 24 cm. Near fine. Tight, clean copy. Lower right corners lightly bumped. First Edition, First Printing. Dust jacket protected in a mylar book cover. "In the 1920s and '30s photography transformed and dominated the U.S. cultural landscape. Seeing America examines the camera work of five women who contributed to the growing dependence of Americans upon visual images for information about the world around them. Together, these women visually articulated the essential ideas occupying the American consciousness in the years between the world wars. This powerful generation of photographers who directed their visions toward influencing social policy and cultural theory included Doris Ulmann, who made portraits of celebrated artists in urban areas and lesser-known craftspeople in rural places; Dorothea Lange, who magnified human dignity in the midst of poverty and unemployment; Marion Post, a steadfast believer in collective strength as the antidote to social ills and the best defense against future challenges; Margaret Bourke-White, who applied avant-garde advertising techniques in her exploration of the human condition; and Berenice Abbott, a devoted observer of the continuous motion and chaotic energy that characterized the modern cityscape. Seeing America is the first work to assess their extraordinary impact as a group. Combining feminist biography with analysis of visual texts, Melissa McEuen considers the various prisms though which each woman saw America, taking into account the force of personal agendas. What emerged in their photographs helped Americans mold perceptions of themselves and others who inhabited the nation's myriad regions." - Publisher. CONTENTS: Documentarian with props: Doris Ulmann's vision of an ideal America; Portraitist as documentarian: Dorothea Lange's depiction of American individualism; A radical vision on film: Marion Post's portrayal of collective strength; Of machines and people: Margaret Bourke-White's isolation of primary components; Modernism ascendant: Berenice Abbott's perception of the evolving cityscape.

Seeing America explores the camera work of five women who directed their visions toward influencing social policy and cultural theory. Taken together, they visually articulated the essential ideas occupying the American consciousness in the years between the world wars. Melissa McEuen examines the work of Doris Ulmann, who made portraits of celebrated artists in urban areas and lesser-known craftspeople in rural places; Dorothea Lange, who magnified human dignity in the midst of poverty and unemployment; Marion Post Wolcott, a steadfast believer in collective strength as the antidote to social ills and the best defense against future challenges; Margaret Bourke-White, who applied avant-garde advertising techniques in her exploration of the human condition; and Berenice Abbott, a devoted observer of the continuous motion and chaotic energy that characterized the modern cityscape. Combining feminist biography with analysis of visual texts, McEuen considers the various prisms though which each woman saw and revealed America. Their documentary photographs were the result of personal visions that had been formed by experiences and emotions as well as by careful calculations and technological processes. These photographers captured the astounding variety of occupations, values, and leisure activities that shaped the nation, and their photographs illuminate the intricate workings of American culture in the 1920s and 1930s.
