In the 1930s the Massengill family of rural Arkansas built three portable photography studios on old truck frames, attached each to the back of any car that would run, and started a mobile photo booth business that would last for a decade. Without formal training they invented ways to mimic the popular photo booth and brought their business to the dirt roads and open fields. "Making Pictures," featuring Massengill family prints and photo albums collected by the artist Maxine Payne, illuminates a Depression-era South previously unseen by the public. Unlike the hardscrabble lives captured by WPA photographers, the Massengill photographs often show folks working to look their best. Hand-painted backdrops, colorized prints and the occasional prop add a playful edge to these scenes. Not unlike photographs by Vivian Maier or Mike Disfarmer, the Massengill photographs invite us to reconsider a time and place from a new perspective.

American Indian Rock Art of the Northeast

The Indians of northeastern North America are known to us primarily through reports and descriptions written by European explorers, clergy, and settlers, and through archaeological evidence. An additional invaluable source of information is the interpretation of rock art images and their relationship to native peoples for recording practical matters or information, as expressions of their legends and spiritual traditions, or as simple doodling or graffiti. The images in this book connect us directly to the Indian peoples of the Northeast, mainly Algonkian tribes inhabiting eastern Pennsylvania, Maryland and the lower Potomac River Valley, New York, New Jersey, the six New EnglandStates, and Atlantic Canada. Lenik provides a full range of rock art appearances in the study area, including some dendroglyphs, pictographs, and a selection of portable rock objects. By providing a full analysis and synthesis of the data, including the types and distribution of the glyphs, and interpretations of their meaning to the native peoples, Lenik reveals a wealth of new information on the culture and lifeways of the Indians of the Northeast.

Drawing on his own experience, as well as tips from other photographers, he gives a subject-by-subject masterclass through 30 core pictures, analyzing what went into making these definitive images. The subjects covered are classic and universal: landscape, portraits, photojournalism, buildings, food, nature, sports, and much more.

Cultural Production and the Making and Selling of News Pictures

How are events turned into news pictures that define them for the audience? How do events become commodified into pictures that both capture them and reiterate the values of the agencies that sell them? This book looks at every stage of the production of news photographs as they move to and from the ground and are sold around the world. Based on extensive fieldwork at a leading international news agency that includes participant observation with photographers in the field, at the agency’s local and global picture desks in Israel, Singapore, and the UK, in-depth interviews with pictures professionals, and observations and in-depth interviews at The Guardian’s picture desk in London, the findings in this book point to a wide cultural production infrastructure hidden from – and yet also nurtured and thus very much determined by – the consumer’s eye.

Vic Muniz’s images and his playful approach to making art captivate children and adults alike. Muniz works with everyday materials—such as peanut butter and jelly, chocolate syrup, and even garbage—to make images that often reference masterpieces or popular icons. Jelly, Garbage + Toys, drawn from interviews with children, is an interactive first-person narrative that presents Muniz’s personal story and his art, focusing on some of his many processes and mediums. The book emphasizes the importance of play in the creation of art while challenging children to think about how images are made and what they mean. The design—with graphic novel–inspired speech bubbles, liftable flaps, and a Turkish-map fold (all four sides open)—helps communicate Muniz’s exuberant message.
