Photo's of the Gods The Printed Image and Political Struggle

Photo's of the Gods The Printed Image and Political Struggle




India,moderne fotografie

PINNEY,C., Photo's of the Gods The Printed Image and Political Struggle in India, Londen 2004. Softcover 19 x 25 cm. 238 pag. met 167 afb. waarvan 80 in kleur. 
"Photos of the Gods' is the first comprehensive history of posters, postcards and other printed images that comprise a major dimension of India's popular visual culture. It traces the connections between the production and consumption of these images and the struggle against colonial rule. The detailed output of individual presses and artists over the decades is set against the intensification of the nationalist struggle and the constraints imposed by colonial state censorship, and a half-century of Indian independence since 1947. By combining anthropology, political and cultural history and the study of aesthetic systems, and by including many intriguing and unfamiliar images, 'Photos of the Gods' shows that India's current predicament and popular culture cannot be understood without taking into account this complex and fascinating visual history. The emergence of Indian-run chromolithograph presses in the late 1870s initiated a vast outpouring of images of an astonishin variety, an outpouring that today has come to dominate many of India's spaces, both public and domestic. Many interviews with both artists and publishers were undertaken for this book. Among the great variety of artists responsible for the almost bewildering, yet totally compelling, panoply of'photos of the gods' in India are those that trained in the colonial art schools, others whose skills reflect their membership of traditional painting castes, and yet others who began their careers as humble self-taught sign painters. These artists and the presses together helped make rather than merely reflect the politics of their day, hence 'Photos of the Gods' is not a history of the art of chromolithography but reveals how popular visual culture contributed to history in the making in India."

Photographien aus Berlin 1946-1951 Henry Ries

Photographien aus Berlin 1946-1951 Henry Ries




photography Europe

FRECOT, J.(a.o.), HENRY RIES Photographien aus Berlin, Deutschland und Europa 1946-1951, Berlin 1988. Soft cover 24 x 19 cm. 179 pages Pages 52 to 179  photographs. Cover some trace of a removed sticker[see photograph]. Good copy.
"Henry Ries (September 22, 1917 – May 24, 2004) was a photographer who worked for New York Times. His most famous photo was of "The Berlin Air Lift" which was later made into a U.S. Postage Stamp commemorative.
Berliners watching a C-54 land at Tempelhof Airport (1948)[see book cover]
Ries was born in Berlin and grew up in Germany, but sensed the impending doom of Hitler's political style and, as a Jew, emigrated to the United States in 1937. Immigration officials in New York sent him back to Nazi Germany because of technical problems with his papers. Fortunately, Ries was permitted to enter America in January 1938, having crossed the Atlantic twice to do so.
When America entered World War II, Ries immediately joined the army and fought in the Asian Theater, humorously pointing out that he served in Asia due to his "good German" skills. He was stationed in India with an aerial reconnaissance unit. After the war, in August 1945, Ries, still a soldier, returned to Berlin. He soon resigned from the army in order to work for the OMGUS Observer as a photojournalist. Two years later, he begin to work for The New York Times as a European photographer, photographing many of the scenes of destroyed post-war Germany including the destruction and Berlin blockade which have become iconic images. In 1951, Ries returned to the US and eventually turned to commercial photography. In 1955, he opened his own studio in Manhattan.
When he returned to Berlin in 1945, he pronounced the city forever changed. In his book, Abschied meiner Generation, he said, "Seeing all this devastation and desperation, confronted with hunger and fear, cripples and black-marketers – and with no Nazi in sight anywhere – I realized how fundamentally the seven years between emigration and occupation had changed Germany's exterior and my own interior."
During his time with the Times, he met and photographed the famous and the infamous, such as artists Pablo Picasso and Pablo Casals, as well as Spanish dictator Generalissimo Francisco Franco."
