Projecting Citizenship: Photography and Belonging in the British Empire
In Projecting Citizenship, Gabrielle Moser gives a comprehensive account of an unusual project produced by the British government's Colonial Office Visual Instruction Committee at the beginning of the twentieth century-a series of lantern slide lectures that combined geography education and photography to teach schoolchildren around the world what it meant to look and to feel like an imperial citizen. Through detailed archival research and close readings, Moser elucidates the impact of this vast collection of photographs documenting the land and peoples of the British Empire, circulated between 1902 and 1945 in classrooms from Canada to Hong Kong, from the West Indies to Australia. Moser argues that these photographs played a central role in the invention and representation of imperial citizenship. She shows how citizenship became a photographable and teachable subject by tracing the intended readings of the images that the committee hoped to impart to viewers and analyzing how spectators may have used their encounters with these photographs for protest and resistance. Interweaving political and economic history, history of pedagogy, and theories of citizenship with a consideration of the aesthetic and affective dimensions of viewing the lectures, Projecting Citizenship offers important insights into the social inequalities and visual language of colonial rule.

Molineux: 300 Years
For 300 Years the name Molineux has been indelibly linked with the town of Wolverhampton, known throughout the World as the home of Wolverhampton Wanderers FC, but only for the last 130 of those years. Built in 1720 as one of the finest private homes in the town, with large formal gardens, Molineux became in turn a hotel with pleasure gardens and a home for major exhibitions, and cricket and boxing matches and the home of cycle racing in this country, but then the local football club moved in and began developing a stadium in which the Wolves won famous victories against top European teams in floodlit friendlies, and inspired the creation of the European Cup. After both the hotel and the team and stadium fell into the depths of decay, they eventually re-emerged as the home of the City's Archives, and a magnificent home for a re-energised team which brought back European football, and local pride.

Golden Prospects: Daguerreotypes of the California Gold Rush
A fresh, comprehensive, and critical look at the California gold rush through the lens of the daguerreotype camera The California gold rush was the first major event in American history to be documented in depth by photography. This fascinating volume offers a fresh, comprehensive, and critical look at the people, places, and culture of that historical episode as seen through daguerreotypes and ambrotypes of the era. After gold was discovered at Sutter's Mill in 1848, thousands made the journey to California, including daguerreotypists who established studios in cities and towns and ventured into the gold fields in specially outfitted photographic wagons. Their images, including portraits, views of cities and gold towns, and miners at work in the field, provide an extraordinary glimpse into the evolution of mining culture and technology, the variety of nationalities and races involved in the mining industry, and the growth of cities such as San Francisco and Sacramento. Including numerous images published here for the first time, this book provides an extraordinary glimpse into the transformation of the American West.

Abandoned Illinois: Forgotten Places and Lost Histories
What causes people to leave their lives behind? How is it that places, some of great historical significance, are left unnoticed, even when in plain sight? What does that say about who we are as people and what we will become? It's easy to overlook these spaces and the people who once occupied them. Abandoned Illinois: Forgotten Places and Lost Histories is a visual chronicling of these places, from homes filled with left-behind belongings to a steel mill that was responsible for forging more aviation parts for the U.S. government than any other during WWII, to an ornately designed church whose parish lasted over 100 years before becoming obsolete, to a mental health center that was shuttered so abruptly that almost everything was left behind. Strangely beautiful and stubbornly defying neglect and the passage of time, these once well-known places are either gone or will be soon.

City/Game: Basketball in New York
From the playgrounds to the NBA, New York has invented a way of playing basketball, and City/Game is not only about the three renowned NBA teams--the Knicks, the Nets, and the Liberty--and their predecessors, but also the many high-school and college basketball teams with legendary rivalries. Through art and testimonials from the fans, coaches, and players, we learn about Lew Alcindor (later known as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar), Kenny Anderson, and Chris Mullin, all birthed on the city blacktop and who took their skills to the NBA hardwood. Explore the famous street-ball courts on a map of the five boroughs, including Rucker Park and the Cage on West 4th Street, home to Abdul-Jabbar, Wilt Chamberlain, and Kyrie Irving; read about New York's style of play--like the infamous one-handed jump shot--and glossary of NYC-style trash talk and slang; see celebrity row photographs courtside at the Garden and Barclay's Center; revel in the images, headlines, and objects related to the 1970 and 1973 championship Knicks. Packed with new and archival images, this book brings the energy of the sport through original essays by noted writers and highlights from players, fans, and rising stars of the New York scene and features interviews with NBA greats including Queens-born Kenny Smith and Bronx-born former Knick Rod Strickland. A great book for any basketball fan to relive old memories and learn new details.

Little Romances
When considered as an object the photograph exists physically in the world, it belongs to someone; it gets held, it has weight, value. I've been interested in this concept for some time. It was this interest plus the recurrent use of my images online without my permission that motivated the creation of the series Little Romances. I have always made very personal work, my current emotional state and interests get translated directly into my images. Most all these images reflect questions and anxieties about being a woman, navigating what that means; what is expected of me as a mother, daughter, wife or lover versus what I'm capable of. In sharing my work online, sometimes it is treated with respect, but more often not. Not being asked for its use, and/or not being credited; it's upsetting being treated that way especially with such personal images. In Little Romances I photograph prints of my photographs and they become a physical object; my object. I surround them with elements from my garden or other personal items not to evoke nostalgia or sentimentality but to deepen my physical connection/claim to these images and distance them from the viewer. The object-image becomes obscured, repurposed, diverted, so that its original intent remains safe from viewing and at the same time it explores a new narrative.

Kent's Military Heritage
Kent has one of the most diverse and rich military histories of any county in England. The nearest point to continental Europe, it has been a natural target for invasion from Roman times and has been heavily defended through the centuries. Evidence exists of Iron Age forts in the county and many of the Roman fortifications such as Richborough survive today. Castles were built by the Norman invaders, most notably at Dover, and as military firepower increased a new generation of artillery-based castles was developed by Henry VIII at Walmer and elsewhere. New defences and fortifications continued to be built until the 20th century. In the First World War, for the first time aerial defence became important with observers aiding anti-aircraft gun positions and interceptor aircraft, and the coastal and aerial defences were extended further during the Second World War and into the Cold War. Numerous airfields were established in Kent, the Battle of Britain being largely fought in the skies over the county and the leading ace, James McCudden VC, was born and buried in the county. Naval power has also been important in Kent - Roman and Saxon fleets guarded the coast and in 1155 the Cinque Ports were founded to develop harbours to help protect the country and later Chatham became a major naval base. Kent regiments have served in battles and wars for hundreds of years and the numerous memorials and cemeteries in the county are testament to the sacrifice of many in military conflict. This book provides a fascinating insight into the people, places and events that are Kent's Military Heritage.

Luxury and Visual Culture
From couture fashion to opulent perfumes and decadent food, the luxury goods and services industry has grown at an unprecedented rate even in the context of a global recession. But in contemporary digital culture does luxury still reside in material things, or rather the look of things? In this first study of luxury through the lens of visual culture, Armitage argues that luxury is undergoing a shift from material culture to the immaterial culture of the visual, offering new forms of luxury engagement and unparalleled levels of pleasure never before offered to the senses. Calling for a new understanding of luxury in the changing visual landscape of contemporary society, Luxury and Visual Culture embraces an extraordinary range of cultural forms, including fashion, photography, social media, television, and art. From the masterpieces of Damien Hirst and Jeff Koons, to Richard Avedon's photography and Louis Vuitton's Flagship stores, the book explores key issues of globalization, digitization, consumer identity, mass luxury, and the role of art. This text is ideal for all students of contemporary luxury studies, as well as scholars and researchers in the field of visual culture.

Prix Pictet 08: Hope
The Prix Pictet is the world's leading prize for photography and sustainability. For over ten years now, it aims to harness the power of all genres of photography to draw global attention to critical sustainability issues that threaten humanity; and the planet that we share with the rest of the natural world. The eighth cycle of the award takes the theme of Hope, a subject that the late Kofi Annan, President of the Prix Pictet, touched on in his closing remarks at the Prix Pictet awards ceremony in November 2017: It is perhaps in the ability to carry on in adversity that there lies hope for us all. Sir David King, Chairman of the Prix Pictet Jury, builds on this idea in the foreword where he writes of the hope that despite all the evidence to the contrary there is the vision, leadership and creative will to keep on trying. The participants are encouraged to capture some of the positive sustainability actions and initiatives that are beginning to emerge around the world. Amid escalating environmental crisis and concern, these photographers turn their cameras on developments which give cause for optimism and inspiration-whether it be falling poverty or reforestation, advances in medicine or technological solutions for global environmental problems. This book presents a selection of their interpretations of this theme, accompanied by full details of the portfolios of the 12 artists shortlisted by the independent jury. The book also features essays by four eminent writers: Naoko Abe, William Boyd, Martin Rees and Roger Scruton. As a group the artists appearing in this book present Hope as a fragile and elusive quality that is nevertheless capable of overcoming despair. Hope is present even in the darkest of these images. And right there, according to David King, is the great hope of the Prix Pictet, the wager that we all make with the future, that art can triumph where words alone have failed. That images can alarm our politicians into action and inspire us all to act before it is too late. An indispensable volume for anyone interested in conceptual photography, photojournalism, and the environment, this book also provides a galvanizing narrative of individual and collective agency, determination, and positive environmental change.

Jockomo: The Native Roots of Mardi Gras Indians
Jockomo celebrates the transcendent experience of Mardi Gras, encompassing both ancient and current traditions of New Orleans. The Mardi Gras Indians are a renowned and beloved fixture of New Orleans public culture. Yet very little is known about the indigenous roots of their cultural practices. For the first time, this book explores the Native American ceremonial traditions that influenced the development of the Mardi Gras Indian cultural system. Jockomo reveals the complex story of exchanges that have taken place over the past three centuries, generating new ways of singing and speaking, with many Languages mixing as people's lives overlapped. Contemporary photographs by John McCusker and archival images combine to offer a complementary narrative to the text. From the depictions of eighteenth-century Native American musical processions to the first known photo of Mardi Gras Indians, Jockomo is a visual feast, displaying the evolution of cultural traditions throughout the history of New Orleans. By the beginning of the twentieth century, Mardi Gras Indians had become a recognized local tradition. Over the course of the next one hundred years, their unique practices would move from the periphery to the very center of public consciousness as a quintessentially New Orleanian form of music and performance, even while retaining some of the most ancient features of Native American culture and Language. Jockomo offers a new way of seeing and hearing the blended legacies of New Orleans.

Troublemakers: Chicago Freedom Struggles Through the Lens of Art Shay
What does democracy look like? And when should we cause trouble to pursue it? Troublemakers fuses photography and history to demonstrate how racial and economic inequality gave rise to a decades-long struggle for justice in one American city. In dialogue with 275 of Art Shay's photographs, Erik S. Gellman takes a new look at major developments in postwar US history: the Second Great Migration, white flight, and neighborhood and street conflicts, as well as shifting party politics and the growth of the carceral state. The result is a visual and written history that complicates--and even upends--the morality tales and popular memory of postwar freedom struggles. Shay himself was a troublemaker, seeking to unsettle society by illuminating truths that many middle-class, white, media, political, and businesspeople pretended did not exist. Shay served as a navigator in the US Army Air Forces during World War II, then took a position as a writer for Life Magazine. But soon after his 1948 move to Chicago, he decided to become a freelance photographer. Shay wandered the city photographing whatever caught his eye--and much did. His lens captured everything from private moments of rebellion to era-defining public movements, as he sought to understand the creative and destructive energies that propelled freedom struggles in the Windy City. Shay illuminated the pain and ecstasy that sprung up from the streets of Chicago, while Gellman reveals their collective impact on the urban fabric and on our national narrative. This collaboration offers a fresh and timely look at how social conflict can shape a city--and may even inspire us to make trouble today.

New York: Club Kids is a high impact visual diary of New York City in the 1990s, seen through the eyes of Waltpaper, a central figure within the Club Kids. The Club Kids comprised an artistic and fashion-conscious youth movement that crossed over into the public consciousness through appearances on daytime talk shows, magazine editorials, fashion campaigns, and music videos, planting the seeds for popular cultural trends such as reality television, self-branding, influencers, and the gender revolution. Known for their outrageous looks, legendary parties, and sometimes-illicit antics, The Club Kids were the hallmarks of Generation X and would prove to be the last definitive subculture group of the analog world. The '90s, whose 30th anniversary is quickly approaching, has come to be known as the last discernible and cohesive decade, cherished by those who experienced it and romanticized by those who missed it. The first comprehensive visual document of '90s nightlife and street culture, New York Club Kids grants special access to a dormant world, curated and narrated by someone who participated in the experience. Featuring rare photographs and ephemera, the book culls from the personal archives of various photographers and artists whose recognition is long overdue.

Vienna. Portrait of a City
Vienna combines drama and elegance like no other. For centuries the heart of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the stately city on the Danube, has been defined by vast palaces and imperial grandeur-but behind the Baroque opulence, Vienna is also a place of genteel coffee house culture, epicurean tradition, and a heritage of both delicate and daring music, art, and design, from Johann Strauss to Egon Schiele, from Gustav Mahler to Josef Hoffmann. This volume is a treasure trove of photography from the last 175 years, following the evolution of Vienna from imperial capital to modern metropolis. Like a visual walk through time and cityscape, hundreds of carefully curated pictures trace the developments in Vienna's built environment and the cultural and historical trends they reflect, whether the urban Gesamtkunstwerk of the 19th-century Ringstrasse or the experiments of Red Vienna in the 1920s, when the city had a social democrat government for the first time. Through these remarkable photographs, we discover not only the great landmarks and lesser-known corners of Vienna, but also the ubiquity and the tumult of its history. We see the cultural blossoming of the fin de siecle, when radical innovators such as Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Adolf Loos, and Sigmund Freud turned Vienna into a laboratory of modernity ; the clashes of 1934; the ascent of Nazi dictatorship; and the horrors writ by the Holocaust in what was once one of the most populous and multi-ethnic cities on earth. More recently, fascinating postwar photographs explore the Vienna of the Third Man, at once a city in ruins and a hub for spies. The book closes with the most recent pictures, celebrating the emergence of today's Vienna-one of the most attractive cities in Europe, in which rich history once again coexists with international flair and vibrant contemporary culture.

Secret Darlington
The County Durham town of Darlington has a long and interesting history. In mediaeval times it was a market town for the surrounding area, with records of the market dating back to the 12th century. The Victorian covered market is today an iconic feature at the heart of Darlington but was hugely controversial when built in the 1860s and its floor collapsed when it opened, killing a local farmer. By this time Darlington had been transformed with the opening of the world's first passenger railway in the town, built with the wealth developed by the Pease family's wool mills. Secret Darlington explores the less well-known episodes and characters in the history of the town through the centuries, from scandals such as the Cheese Affair involving the Bishop of Durham to war heroes, sporting stars such as the dentist who won the town's first Olympic gold medal, as a football goalkeeper, but who died while making a save to a Quaker-born adventurer who fled to Easter Island, a global screen star engaged to Fred Perry who died in an air raid in World War 2, campaigners for women's suffrage and industries that have disappeared today, including the forge that built the rudder for the Titanic, to forgotten places of entertainment, not least the largest number of cinemas per head of population in the country in the 1930s. With tales of remarkable characters, unusual events and tucked away historical places, Secret Darlington will appeal to all those with an interest in the history of this town in County Durham.

Lost Yeovil
The history of the Somerset town of Yeovil goes back to the Middle Ages. Long a centre for the leather industry, in the 19th century it became closely associated with the glove-making industry based in the town. From the 20th century Yeovil has been one of the homes of Britain's aircraft and defence industries, particularly Westland Aircraft. It was heavily targeted by the Luftwaffe in World War 2 and much of the town was rebuilt in the postwar decades. Although the aircraft and defence industries still have a strong presence in Yeovil, the town and its folk have seen many changes in lifestyle and the fabric of the town in recent decades. Lost Yeovil presents a portrait of a town and a way of life that has radically changed or disappeared today, showing not just the industries and buildings that have gone, people and street scenes, but also many popular places of entertainment and much more. This fascinating photographic history of lost Yeovil will appeal to all those who live in the town or know it well, as well as those who remember it from previous decades.

Abandoned Kentucky: Bygone Echoes of the Bluegrass State
Abandoned structures are places that open the imagination and invite interpretation. Distressed wood and weathered remnants of human life are crossed by time and animal tracks, inviting one to picture what once was. Abandoned homes and buildings offer a unique, distressed beauty. While often overlooked by passers-by, their skeletal remains act as the perfect subject for the lens of a camera, quietly waiting to be documented and shared. Abandoned Kentucky: Bygone Echoes of the Bluegrass State explores this haunting narrative and display of photos by urban explorer and photographer, Jay Farrell. In this book, you'll enjoy a variety of dilapidated structures, including abandoned farmhouses, country stores, a church from the late 1800s, and so much more. Readers are encouraged to explore the forgotten corners of the state, see the world through different eyes, and take the long road home.

Design in Motion
With an abundance of information on how to create motion graphics already available, Design in Motion focuses on the why of moving image and less about the how. By unpacking the reasons behind screen designer's production choices, each chapter deconstructs examples of motion graphics by drawing on case studies of both familiar examples from contemporary cinema and unseen work from postgraduate motion graphic designers. It examines the value of image, text, motion, camera and transitions, explaining in detail why some methods work, while others fail. Whether you work in info-graphics, documentary or design, this book is structured to follow the production process and, together with its multimedia companion website, will be a by-your-side companion to guide you through your next project.

Norwich at Work: People and Industries Through the Years
In virtually every street in Norwich, you can see the legacy left by the city's trade and industry over the centuries. Norwich at Work tells the story of its citizens' working life and guides present-day visitors and residents alike through Norwich's rich industrial architectural heritage. The book will take the reader on a journey from the prosperous Norwich of the Middle Ages, then England's second largest city. It will chart the growth and decline of the textile trade and the emergence of new businesses such as brewing and footwear, as well as their eventual demise: in the first half of the nineteenth century there were twenty-seven breweries in Norwich and in the 1930s over 10,000 people worked in shoe and boot manufacturing in the city, including for famous names such as Clarks, Norvic and Bally. The twentieth century witnessed the boom of the media and of financial services industries, including Norwich Union insurance (now Aviva). Other famous Norwich businesses such as Colman's (mustard), Caley's (chocolate) and Jarrold (department store) are also featured. With a fascinating series of photographs and illustrations, Norwich at Work traces the story of the changing patterns of work in Norwich through the centuries. It will appeal to all those with an interest in the history of this city in Norfolk.

Shropshire Airfields Through Time
Though there were airfields in Shropshire during the First World War, at Shawbury, Tern Hill and Monkmoor, it was in the late 1930s that a massive building programme began to dot the county with new RAF airfields, mostly for training purposes, until there were over sixteen - in some cases they were so close together that their circuits overlapped. Since the Second World War the number has fallen away, but Shawbury, Tern Hill, Cosford and little Chetwynd are still used by the RAF, and Sleap has been revived for general aviation. In most cases the others have returned to agriculture and a few to industry, with derelict control towers and other iconic buildings remaining as lost sentinels of the days when young men trained to carry the fight into the dark skies of Germany.
