To The City

Urban Photographs of the New Deal

In the 1930s and 1940s, as the United States moved from a rural to an urban nation, the pull of the city was irrepressible. It was so strong that even a photographic mission designed to record the essence of rural America could not help but capture the energy of urbanization too. To the City showcases over 100 photographs from the Farm Security Administration (FSA) project along with extracts from the Works Progress Administration (WPA) guidebooks and oral histories, to convey the detail and dimensions of that transformation. This artfully grouped collection of photographs includes magnificent images by notable photographers Dorothea Lange, Walker Evans and Gordon Parks, among many others. Foulkes organizes this history of Americana into five themes: Intersection; Traffic; High Life and Low Life; The City in the Country; and Citizens to illuminate the changes in habits, landscapes, and aspirations that the march to cities encompassed. As the rural past holds symbolic sway and the suburb presents demographic force, the urban portion of our history—why and how cities have been a destination for hope—recedes from view. To the City is a thoughtful, engaging reminder.

Eine charmante Anregung zum bewussteren Hinschauen Alexandra Horowitz, Autorin des New York Times-Bestsellers Was denkt der Hund? (Inside of a Dog), legt nun ein zweites, ebenso kluges, unterhaltsames und überraschendes Sachbuch vor. Von der Kunst, die Welt mit anderen Augen zu sehen öffnet unseren Blick für Dinge, die wir erst sehen, wenn wir uns die Zeit dafür nehmen und wenn wir die Perspektive eines anderen zu unserer eigenen machen. Das Buch verdeutlicht, wie selektiv wir gewöhnlich die Welt wahrnehmen und wie wir sie immer wieder neu entdecken können. [Horowitz], die sich als charmante Begleiterin erweist, nimmt den Leser mit auf eine Reihe von wunderbar frischen und erhellenden Spaziergängen mit ihren Experten: einem Geologen, einem Typographen, einer Illustratorin, einem Naturliebhaber, einem Wildtierforscher, einem Stadtsoziologen, einer blinden Frau, einem Arzt, einem Soundtechniker, ihrem Kindergartenkind und ihrem Hund Finn ... Die Seiten klingen und leuchten geradezu und spiegeln die tiefe Begeisterung der Autorin für ihre Arbeit und deren Ergebnisse wieder. USA Today Ein unerwarteter und entspannender Trost für unsere erhitzten Gemüter ... eine erfrischende Hommage an den Lohn des Versuchs, die Welt einmal mit den Augen eines anderen zu sehen. Chicago Tribune _____ In diesem glänzend geschriebenen Werk zeigt uns die Autorin, wie wir das Alltägliche anders sehen können, indem wir – in den Worten von Sir Arthur Conan Doyle – „Kleinigkeiten beachten“. Sie schildert elf Spaziergänge, die sie – meist in ihrer Nachbarschaft in Manhattan – mit Experten verschiedenster Gebiete unternommen hat, darunter einem Stadtsoziologen, einer Künstlerin, einem Geologen, einem Arzt und einem Sounddesigner. Auch mit einem Kind und mit einem Hund geht sie eine Runde um den Block, um herauszufinden, wie diese Wesen die Welt wahrnehmen. Indem sie schildert, was all ihre Begleiter sehen, wie sie es sehen und warum die meisten von uns nicht dieselben Dinge sehen, offenbart sie die erstaunliche Macht unserer Aufmerksamkeit wie auch die psychologisch-neurobiologischen Grundlagen fachkundigen Beobachtens. Versuchen Sie es einmal selbst: Schalten Sie, wenn Sie das nächste Mal zu einem Spaziergang aufbrechen, Ihr Handy aus und seien Sie einmal ganz in der realen Welt, in der man Schatten hören kann, in der Fremde mithilfe von Geometrie miteinander kommunizieren, während sie aufeinander zugehen, in der Haltung Bescheidenheit ausdrücken und in der sich unter einem Blatt ein winziges Universum verbergen kann – und in der wahrhaftig Welten stecken, die in Welten stecken, die in Welten stecken.

From the catwalk to the shopping mall, from the big screen to the art museum, fashion plays an increasingly central role in contemporary culture. Fashion Cultures investigates why we are so fascinated by fashion and the associated spheres of photography, magazines and television, and shopping. Fashion Cultures: * re-addresses the fashionable image, considering the work of designers from Paul Smith to Alexander McQueen and Hussein Chalayan * investigates the radicalism of fashion photography, from William Klein to Corinne Day * considers fashion for the 'unfashionable body' (the old and the big), football and fashion, and geographies of style * explores the relationship between fashion and the moving image in discussions of female cinema icons - from Grace Kelly to Gwyneth Paltrow - and iconic male images - from Cary Grant to Malcolm X and Mr Darcy - that have redefined notions of masculinity and cool * makes a significant intervention into contemporary gender politics and theory, exploring themes such as spectacle, masquerade, and the struggle between fashion and feminism.

The Fashion Insiders’ Guides are carefully curated compendiums of the current hotspots, classic haunts, and hidden gems of the world’s greatest fashion destinations. A former Parisian living in New York, French Vogue correspondent Carole Sabas was often approached by friends and colleagues on their way to Paris for Fashion Week, looking for the best place for a quick facial, early morning yoga, or to meet a friend for a drink. So many people asked, in fact, that she produced a small guide filled with advice, which she gave out for free. Requests for more information and other cities came pouring in. Abrams is now making Sabas’s Paris and New York guides available to everyone, with expanded content including chapters such as “Eating and Drinking,” “Beauty,” “Health,” “Shopping,” “Art,” and an eclectic selection of odds and ends called “Might Be Useful One Day.” Written with a light touch and in a friendly tone, each entry includes a description of the recommended spots with hints about when to go, who to ask for, and what to get, as well as location and contact information. The inclusion of additional advice from local fashion celebrities on their favorite places to frequent puts readers confidently in-the-know. Peppered throughout with drawings by a noted and local fashion illustrator, these beautifully designed guides will be the must-have accessories of the season. Praise for The Fashion Insiders' Guide to New York: “Hidden gems are finally unveiled in this posh and savvy guide for sophisticated visitors and newcomers to the Big City . . . this is one must-have guide for stylish New York travelers.” —Ambassador magazine

Manifest Destinations

Cities and Tourists in the Nineteenth-Century American West

Author: J. Philip Gruen

ISBN: 0806147318

Category: Social Science

Page: 312

Tourists started visiting the American West in sizable numbers after the Union Pacific and Central Pacific Railroads were completed in 1869. Contemporary travel brochures and guidebooks of the 1870s sold tourists on the spectacular scenery of the West, and depicted its cities as extensions of the natural landscape—as well as places where efficient business operations and architectural grandeur prevailed—all now easily accessible thanks to the relative comfort of transcontinental rail travel. Yet as people flocked to western cities, it was the everyday life that captured their interest—the new technologies, incessant clatter, and all the upheaval of modern metropolises. In Manifest Destinations, J. Philip Gruen examines the ways in which tourists experienced Chicago, Denver, Salt Lake City, and San Francisco between 1869 and 1893, a period of rapid urbanization and accelerated modernity. Gruen pays particular attention to the contrast between the way these cities were promoted and the way visitors actually experienced them. Guidebooks made Chicago, Denver, Salt Lake City, and San Francisco seem like picturesque environments sprinkled with civilized buildings and refined people. But Gruen’s research in diaries, letters, and traveler narratives shows that tourists were interested—as tourists usually are—in the unexpected encounters that characterize city life. Visitors relished the cities’ unfamiliar storefronts and advertising, public transit systems, ethnic diversity, and multiple dwellings in all their urban messiness. They thrust themselves into the noise, danger, and cacophony. Western cities did not always live up to the marketing strategies of guidebooks, but the western cities’ fast pace and many novelties held extraordinary appeal to visitors from the East Coast and abroad. In recounting lively anecdotes, and by focusing on tourist perceptions of everyday life in western cities, Gruen shows how these cities developed the economy of tourism to eventually encompass both the urban and the natural West.

The Handbook of Interior Architecture and Design

Author: Graeme Brooker,Lois Weinthal

Publisher: A&C Black

ISBN: 1472539044

Category: Design

Page: 672

The Handbook of Interior Architecture and Design offers a compelling collection of original essays that seek to examine the shifting role of interior architecture and interior design, and their importance and meaning within the contemporary world. Interior architecture and interior design are disciplines that span a complexity of ideas, ranging from human behaviour and anthropology to history and the technology of the future. Approaches to designing the interior are in a constant state of flux, reflecting and adapting to the changing systems of history, culture and politics. It is this process that allows interior design to be used as evidence for identifying patterns of consumption, gender, identity and social issues. The Handbook of Interior Architecture and Design provides a pioneering overview of the ideas and arrangements within the two disciplines that make them such important platforms from which to study the way humans interact with the space around them. Covering a wide range of thought and research, the book enables the reader to investigate fully the changing face of interior architecture and interior design, while offering questions about their future trajectory.
