Selected Writings

Harald Szeemann
Edited by Doris Chon, Glenn Phillips, and Pietro Rigolo
Translated by Jonathan Blower and Elizabeth Tucker

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.

Paper Promises
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.

  Photographic: The Life of Graciela Iturbide

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."
