9781606064412: Animals in Photographs

From the invention of photography up through the internet age, animals have been a frequent subject of the camera’s lens, from portraits of beloved pets and exotic creatures to the documentation of human cruelty against them. Drawing on the collection of the J. Paul Getty Museum, this book traces the relationship between animals in photographs and the rapidly advancing technology of photography. From the wild dogs of South Africa to William Wegman’s photogenic Weimaraners, from images of Victorian zoos to visions of the heavy toll of game hunting, animals on film are moving, sympathetic, and sometimes tragic figures.
 
In this vivid and engaging book, Arpad Kovacs explores the social, symbolic, scientific, and aesthetic approaches to a subject that has been of continuous interest to photographers across the centuries. Over ninety full-color plates represent image makers ranging from Felice Beato, Eadweard Muybridge, André Kertész, and Alfred Stieglitz to Berenice Abbott, Manuel Àlvarez Bravo, and Man Ray. More recent photographers, such as Robert Mapplethorpe and Hiroshi Sugimoto, are represented along with contemporary artists, such as Tim Hawkinson, Pieter Hugo, and Graciela Iturbide. The result is a book that shows the evolution of a photographic obsession that abides to this day.
 
This book is published on the occasion of the exhibition In Focus: Animalia, on view at the J. Paul Getty Museum from May 26 to October 18, 2015.

About the Author :

Arpad Kovacs is assistant curator in the Department of Photographs at the J. Paul Getty Museum.

Review :

Animals In Photographs weaves a visual path from the small, gold-framed daguerreotypes of the 1850s to sumptuous modern-day photographs filled with rich color and detail. Though the range of dates and techniques in the collection is extensive, the underlying themes in the photographs are clearly tied throughout the centuries.”—American Photo

Description du livre Getty Trust Publications, United States, 2015. Hardback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This is a compelling look at one of photography s most beloved subjects. This volume is the ninth in a group of photography books drawn from the holdings of The J. Paul Getty Museum, each volume focusing on a specific theme or genre spanning the history of the medium from the mid-nineteenth century to the present. Animals in Photographs traces the relationship between animal representation and the possibilities presented by rapid advancements in camera and film technologies. In his opening essay, Arpad Kovacs explores the allegorical, social, scientific, and aesthetic approaches to a subject that has been of continuous interest to photographers across the centuries. Eighty full-color plates represent image makers ranging from unknown daguerreotypists and nineteenth-century innovators Felice Beato and Eadweard Muybrudge to early twentieth-century artists Andre Kertesz, Alexander Rodchenko, August Sander, and Alfred Stieglitz to mid-twentieth-century photographers Berenice Abbott, Manuel Alvarez Bravo, and Man Ray. More recent makers Linda Connor, Robert Mapplethorpe, Hiroshi Sugimoto, and William Wegman, along with contemporary artists Tim Hawkinson, Pieter Hugo, and Graciela Iturbide build on that history to round out a group of images that is both distinctive and intriguing. This book is published on the occasion of the exhibition In Focus: Animalia, on view at the J. Paul Getty Museum at the Getty Center, Los Angeles, from May 26 to October 18, 2015.
