NEW FROM GETTY PUBLICATIONS
Museum of Obsessions

"[This] hefty catalog, a yeoman's task to assemble given the volume of material from which to choose, is excellent."

As a curator who helped herald in movements as disparate as Pop Art, Conceptualism, and Fluxus, Harald Szeemann is recognized as a tastemaker of twentieth-century art. He was also a prolific writer, and up until now his writings had not been collected in English. This thoughtfully assembled volume takes up that task and the result is a lively look inside the mind of the eccentric and respected Swiss curator.
Early American Photography
Mazie M. Harris
Filling in a gap in previous scholarship, Mazie M. Harris looks specifically at early American photographers who used paper negatives to create photographs on a variety of papers. This richly detailed catalogue provides a new window not only into photography practice in the mid-nineteenth century, but life in general. This volume accompanies an exhibition on view at the J. Paul Getty Museum at the Getty Center through May 27, 2018.
The Life of Graciela Iturbide
Written by Isabel Quintero
Illustrated by Zeke Peña
"The biggest question in creating a graphic novel about a photographer might be how to use the artist's photographs themselves, if at all. . . . Quintero and Peña strike a good compromise, featuring many of Iturbide's photographs as a complement to the biography, but without being dependent on them. The result is a book that expertly combines various aspects to become something utterly unique."
