In the Shadow of Genius: The Brooklyn Bridge and Its Creators
Named a Gift Book for the Discerning New Yorker by The New York Times In the Shadow of Genius is the newest book by photographer and author Barbara Mensch. The author combines her striking photographs with a powerful first-person narrative. She takes the reader on a unique journey by recalling her experiences living alongside the bridge for more than 30 years, and then by tracing her own curious path to understand the brilliant minds and remarkable lives of those who built it: John, Washington, and Emily Roebling. Many of Mensch's photographs were inspired by her visits to the Roebling archives housed at Rutgers University, where she pieced together through notebooks, diaries, letters, and drawings the seminal locations and events that affected their lives. Following in their footsteps, Mensch traveled to Muhlhausen, Germany, the birthplace of John Roebling; to Saxonburg, Pennsylvania, where Roebling established a utopian community in 1831; to Roebling aqueducts and bridges in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and New York; and to the Civil War battlefield in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, where Washington Roebling, the son of the famous engineer, valiantly served as a Union soldier. The book begins and ends with Mensch's unique photographs of the Brooklyn Bridge, including never-before-seen images captured deep within the structure. The book creatively fuses contemporary photography with the historical record, giving the reader a new perspective on contemplating the masterwork. Fernanda Perrone, Curator of Special Collections and the Roebling Family Archive at Rutgers University, has contributed a Foreword.

Detroit's Streetcar Heritage
Detroit's Streetcar Heritage is a photographic essay of the Detroit, Michigan, streetcar system. Replacement of slow moving horsecar service began with the opening of an electric street railway by the Detroit Citizens Street Railway in 1892. By 1900, all of the Detroit streetcar systems were consolidated into the Detroit United Railway (DUR). Following voter approval, the City of Detroit purchased DUR in 1922, becoming the first large United States city to own and operate public transit under Detroit Department of Street Railways (DSR). Between 1921 and 1930, DSR purchased 781 Peter Witt type streetcars. Although DSR purchased 186 modern Presidents' Conference Committee (PCC) cars between 1945 and 1949, many streetcar lines were converted to bus operation. The last streetcar line on Woodward Avenue was converted to bus operation in 1956 with 183 PCC cars sold to Mexico City. Detroit's Streetcar Heritage documents the city's streetcar era plus scenes of the PCC cars in Mexico City, the Washington Boulevard Line which operated from 1976 to 2003, and the QLINE streetcar which opened in 2017 on Woodward Avenue linking Grand Boulevard with downtown Detroit.

Suburbia: the familiar and forgotten
From the photographer behind the acclaimed Westography The sentiment that flows through these images is a balm to the knowledge that time is passing and things will change - William McInnes. Warren Kirk's photos will strike a chord with anyone who's grown up in the Australian suburbs in the past 50 years. Somehow both achingly familiar and unimaginably strange, these luminous images continue his 30-year project of documenting a way of life that is slowly disappearing, along with the people who lived it. Taken with loving attention and considerable skill, and with the utmost respect for the people and places that appear in them, Kirk's photos of shops and houses, of gardens and lounge-rooms, of people surrounded by the things they love, are beautifully evocative and powerfully nostalgic.

Relics of Anthracite in Northeastern Pennsylvania
Anthracite coal was mined in Northeastern Pennsylvania throughout the nineteen and twentieth centuries. The industry was a major employer in the region. It has been fifty to sixty years since the decline of the industry, and the coal breakers are now gone, but images and memories remain. Author Michael G. Rushton, an amateur photographer and industrial archaeologist, grew up in the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton area; there, the remains of the anthracite and railroad industry formed his playground. In this book, he guides readers through the history of anthracite mining in Northeastern Pennsylvania through the display of numerous images related to the industry.

The Photographs of Ralston Crawford
Best known for his modernist paintings and prints, the multitalented artist Ralston Crawford (1906-1978) maintained a deep and intensive interest in photography throughout his career, using the camera as a tool of both documentary and artistic expression. This exquisitely produced publication provides a fresh, comprehensive look at Crawford's photographs from 1938 through the mid-1970s, including both well-known works and previously unpublished images. Some of his photographic images served as the basis for paintings and prints, but many more were made for their own sake as photographs, capturing a wide variety of subjects, from pristine industrial forms to the vibrant street life and musical culture of New Orleans. This volume locates Crawford's photographic production in the context of his overall artistic career and within the creative currents of his time, enhancing our understanding of Crawford as an artist and serving as the best and most up-to-date study of his photographs.

Bognor Regis Pubs
Once a small fishing hamlet, the origins of modern Bognor Regis lie in the attempt by Sir Richard Hotham to develop this part of the south coast as a fashionable resort in the late eighteenth century. Hotham's original profession is given in the name of the town's JD Wetherspoon outlet, the Hatter's Inn, while the pub originally called the Railway Tavern has recently been renamed the Hothampton Arms in memory of Hotham's preferred name for his resort. The oldest pub still trading in the town is the William Hardwicke, which was built by 1817 as the New Inn. Bognor expanded with the arrival of the railway in 1864, which led to the building of new pubs such as the Terminus and the development of those already existing such as the Alexander Tavern. David Muggleton takes us on a walking tour of this seaside town's finest pubs, taking in the ex-Berkeley Arms, now home to the town museum; the Claremont Inn, whose interwar interior makes it a CAMRA heritage pub of some regional importance; and the Punch & Judy, originally the Orlando, but recently renamed as a reminder of the Tony Hancock film The Punch & Judy Man, filmed partly on location in the town. Well researched and beautifully illustrated, Bognor Regis Pubs provides something for everyone, whether they have lived in this venerable old seaside resort all their lives or are visiting this part of the West Sussex coast for the first time.

Abandoned Arizona: Ghost Towns and Legends
Arizona is a visual delight: a ruggedly beautiful state with a rich history and abundant photographic opportunities of not only its exquisite landscape, but its abandoned past. From dusty ghost towns to eerily silent concrete masterpieces, what has been discarded in the settling of this young state is the narrative of Ghost Towns and Legends. Many of Arizona's once thriving mining communities are now deserted. They are nestled in picturesque valleys and harsh desert mountain ranges. America's beloved Route 66 stretches across the state and many trading posts remain--although long abandoned and at the mercy of time and vandals, they still have colorful, visual stories to tell. The Abandoned Arizona, Ghost Towns and Legends journey encompasses the entire state, including the metropolis of Phoenix, where the legendary Phoenix Trotting Park stood isolated and forsaken for half a century. Irresistible sunsets are an Arizona trademark, but so too should be its slowly disintegrating past; before we move on to what's next, we must be mindful of the importance of our past--there is much to be learned.

Photographing Tutankhamun: Archaeology, Ancient Egypt, and the Archive
They are among the most famous and compelling photographs ever made in archaeology: Howard Carter kneeling before the burial shrines of Tutankhamun; life-size statues of the boy king on guard beside a doorway, tantalizingly sealed, in his tomb; or a solid gold coffin still draped with flowers cut more than 3,300 years ago. Yet until now, no study has explored the ways in which photography helped mythologize the tomb of Tutankhamun, nor the role photography played in shaping archaeological methods and interpretations, both in and beyond the field. This book undertakes the first critical analysis of the photographic archive formed during the ten-year clearance of the tomb, and in doing so explores the interface between photography and archaeology at a pivotal time for both. Photographing Tutankhamun foregrounds photography as a material, technical, and social process in early 20th-century archaeology, in order to question how the photograph made and remade `ancient Egypt' in the waning age of colonial order.

And what lay in store for these amorous couples after the shutter clicked-true love or just a passing fancy? People Kissing is the perfect gift to share with a sweetheart any day you feel like making a public display of affection.

Photography, Migration and Identity: A German-Jewish-American Story
Between the 1933 Nazi seizure of power and their 1941 prohibition on all Jewish emigration, around 90,000 German Jews moved to the United States. Using the texts and images from a personal archive, this Palgrave Pivot explores how these refugees made sense of that experience. For many German Jews, theirs was not just a story of flight and exile; it was also one chapter in a longer history of global movement, experienced less as an estrangement from Germanness, than a reiteration of the mobility central to it. Private photography allowed these families to position themselves in a context of fluctuating notions of Germaness, and resist the prescribed disentanglement of their Jewish and German identities. In opening a unique window onto refugees' own sense of self as they moved across different geographical, political, and national environments, this book will appeal to readers interested in Jewish life and migration, visual culture, and the histories of National Socialism and the Holocaust.

Call of the Blue
Watching and recording the gradual dismantling of life, beauty and diversity in our oceans is a tortuous experience for scientists. Our oceans function as earth's organs and our survival depends on their health. Yet in the last fifty years half of coral reefs have disappeared, only 10% of large fish remain and many species are at the brink of collapse. Unsustainable fishing practices, pollution - including 20 million tonnes of plastic entering the oceans yearly - and rising temperatures are continued threats. Even as the sense of urgency to save our oceans continues to grow, at the time we publish this book, an estimate of only 2% of all global philanthropic and charitable donations go to protecting the environment. Of this, only a tiny fraction go toward supporting and safeguarding our oceans. Brimming with spectacular, full-page photography of underwater scenes from the Pacific, Atlantic, Indian, Southern and Arctic oceans and many seas, Call of the Blue tells the stories of positive, focused people who are working to save our oceans. The first book of its kind, Call of the Blue unites more than 100 modern-day explorers, sailors, free divers, film-makers, lawmakers and conservationists who talk about their lives, passions and exploits on, in or under the water. Call of the Blue demonstrates how the efforts of individuals and communities can inspire and drive change. Notable contributors include United States Senator Sheldon Whitehouse; explorer and BBC presenter Paul Rose; Danish environmentalist and Director General of the IUCN Inger Andersen; French photojournalist and UNEP Goodwill Ambassador Yann Arthus-Bertrand; and American marine biologist Edith Widder (to name only a few). Contributors include hardworking men and women from around the world including the United Kingdom, the United States, Australia, Canada, France, India, Mozambique, Mauritius, Ecuador and more. Alongside these passionate and necessary voices, Philip Hamilton's mesmerising images - of reefs, blue whales, salt water crocodiles, manatees, sea lions, sailfish, penguin, mantas, jellyfish, turtles, sharks, pygmy sea horses and more - provide readers a glimpse of some of the world's most stunning underwater locations, bringing into sharp focus all we are at risk to lose.

As Is pries into the world of the female collective conscious. Amy Gelb offers her subjects anonymity, they are free to express themselves fully without fear or consequence. Her work explores the compartmentalization of the female form and its responsibility for the dehumanization of women. By forcing her subjects into figurative boxes, Gelb recreates the fragmentation of a woman's identity. In combining multi layered large format pieces on glass she invites the viewer to try and discern that which makes one woman a unique individual versus that which all women collectively share.

Abandoned Northern California
Driving through Northern California, you will find sprawling military bases, immense wineries, gold mining towns, and amusement parks all lying abandoned. The combination of different people and industries this part of the state has been home to over the years is intriguingly odd. The ruins that lie in the area today reflect the various ways people attempted to build their future in Northern California--not unlike the innovative ways people still try to build their future in the area today. Whether that involves a cool new start-up, a prominent place in the local, internationally respected wine industry, or seeking inspiration for an amazing new book, all kinds of diverse characters come here to dream and innovate. If there is one thing this cross-section of humanity who flocked to the state had in common, it is the will to forge ahead into the unknown. Inventors, military men, gold prospectors, entrepreneurs--they all, in their own ways, took their risks and chances in this newer part of the USA, to create a life, a business, a work of art or science that had never been done before. This is the legacy that has formed Northern California today.

In this ode to the charms of Paris and Parisian style, Belgian photographer Henk van Cauwenbergh captures the essence of the city's most iconic venues and its perennially chic denizens. He seeks out the culinary hotspots of Paris and turns his camera on the places to see and be seen. Inspired by the microcosm of Saint-Germain, his Paris is imbued with the spirit of the places where people gather: the casual efficiency of waiters at Les Deux Magots and the Cafe de Flore, the boisterous atmosphere of Brasserie Lipp. Long influenced by urban and innate style of Serge Gainsbourg, Charles Aznavour, Catherine Deneuve, and Jeanne Moreau, van Cauwenbergh's Paris is one of seduction and nonchalance, of beautiful women, and the heady emotions of first love.

In 1970, the prominent entomologist Ed Ross and his wife Sandy were on a legitimate scientific expedition, focused on achieving a significant scientific result, i.e., to find and identify a special insect, an embiid. Over a period of years, in the course of Ed's research, the couple had already visited very remote and exotic locales all over the world, including places many people have never heard of. They had seen people living nearly stone-age lives, witnessed primitive rites, thrice camped their way across Africa, and Ed never set foot in a hotel during his yearlong entomological survey of India. But none of this could have prepared them for Afghanistan. As world-traveled as they were, they found themselves completely surprised and enthralled by this unique, ancient, and enduring culture.

Recovered Memory: New York and Paris 1960-1980 is a meditation on time and place: before the internet and 24/7 news; when one could visit the Eiffel Tower without seeing police and automatic weapons, when a ride on the New York subway cost 15 cents, when the smell of fresh-baked baguettes wafted over nearly every Parisian neighborhood, and when the Coney Island parachute ride still thrilled thousands. Van Riper's striking black and white photographs spanning twenty years, coupled with his eloquent texts, capture the 20th-century romance and grit of New York more than a half century ago, and Paris, some forty years ago. It was a time when the pace of life was slower and somehow less threatening, people talked to each other instead of texting on their iPhones, and you literally had to stop and smell the coffee.

Gumball 3000: 20 Years on the Road
Just as Gumball 3000 is much more than a car rally, 20 Years on the Road is much more than a car book. A best-of compilation of the glitzy and famed international event from the past two decades, this volume is as effervescent and exciting as the road trip itself. Gumball is about challenging tradition and taking a non-conventional approach to exploring and pushing cultural and creative boundaries. Maximillion Cooper, CEO and Founder of Gumball 3000, sure knows a thing or two about breaking boundaries. Though only in his mid-forties, Cooper has a CV already bursting at the seams: he has been a model and successful racing driver; he studied fashion design, law, and film; he is an entrepreneur, a designer, and an art collector. In establishing Gumball 3000 in 1999, Cooper created an event which swiftly showed its potential to defy conventions and categories. Like its founder, Gumball 3000 refuses to be pigeonholed; it is a rally and a car show offering live music and action sports. It truly defines the word event in superlative style. Every year, a million visitors join the Gumball tour, with a further 100 million households tuning in via TV and internet broadcasts in 60 countries worldwide. The eight-day long road covers 3,000 miles across different countries and has had host stations in Europe, Asia, and North America. The list of participating celebrities is glittering and, of course, genre-defying: David Hasselhoff, Snoop Dogg, David Guetta, Steve Aoki, Johnny Knoxville, Tony Hawk, Adrien Brody, Daryl Hannah, Dennis Rodman, Lewis Hamilton, Eve, deadmau5, and many more. The only boundaries of this book are its covers. Celebrating the 20th anniversary of Gumball, it is an explosion of Gumball fun and facts, featuring breathtaking photographs of the tour's exceptional cars, as well as insider insights from leading participants. Follow the rally's genesis, meteoric growth, and take a glimpse at the legendary Gumball parties. Buckle up and enjoy the ride!

Abandoned Industries of New York City
Abandoned Industries of New York City is a journey through the decaying ruins of the city's forgotten past. Through clandestine photographs and in-depth research, Joseph Anastasio reveals the untold stories of New York City's former industrial glory. These chronicles range from the factory that seemed to keep its entire neighborhood employed, to the individual lives of those who were closely linked to these locations. These characters range from every imaginable background: from the widow of a Titanic victim who amassed a fortune from selling lifeboats, to the cosmetics entrepreneur whose empire slipped away. This untold history uncovers unexpected tales that have been paved over and lost through New York's endless, unforgiving cycle of urban renewal and reinvention. This book will appeal to anyone who loves a good adventure highlighted by the unexpected and unseen, as told by the foremost authority on all things abandoned in NYC.

Sun Gardens: The Cyanotypes of Anna Atkins
Anna Atkins (1799-1871) came of age in Victorian England, a particularly fertile environment for learning and scientific discovery. Guided by her father, a prominent scientist, Atkins was inspired by William Henry Fox Talbot to take up photography and was friends with Sir John Herschel, who invented the cyanotype photographic process in 1842. The next year, Atkins began making cyanotypes in an effort to illustrate and distribute information about her herbarium. The result was Photographs of British Algae: Cyanotype Impressions, the first book to be illustrated with photographs. A decade later, she and her friend Anne Dixon expanded their visual inquiry to flowering plants, feathers, and other subjects. This volume is a revised and expanded edition of a long out-of-print monograph that first secured Atkins's place in the history of photography. It draws upon years of careful research and sets Atkins and her work in the proper context. Supplementary texts shed new light on her productions and on the cyanotype process, which is still used by artists today. The photographs themselves-ethereal, deeply hued, and wonderfully intricate-are brought to life with exquisite reproductions that are certain to win Atkins a new generation of followers.

August Sander
August Sander (1876-1964) was a documentary photographer whose greatest project lasted his entire working life. His series of portrait studies of the German people spanned three eras - the German Empire, the Weimar Republic and Nazi Germany - and every social class, combining to form a fascinating social mirror of the country over a tumultuous period in its history. Working with calm determination, Sander cast the same lucid eye on bankers and boxers, soldiers and circus performers, creating strikingly honest images that fulfil his sole ambition: to tell the truth about humanity.
