For the general reader it is a classic collection of news photographs fascinating in their own right. For the professional and the student it remains an unrivalled study of photo-journalism, a complete analysis of how photographs are taken, selected and edited for newspapers and magazines. As the former editor of the SUNDAY TIMES and THE TIMES, Harold Evans is uniquely qualified to take the reader behind the images that the press provide. Many celebrated photographers were interviewed for the book, including Henri Cartier-Bresson, Snowdon, Bert Hardy, Bill Brandt, Don McCullin, and Eugene Smith. Many more have acclaimed it -including Helmut Newton, Richard Avedon and Arnold Newman.

Fotografien, seit fast 100 Jahren fester Bestandteil der Berichterstattung in der Presse, haben seit den 1990er Jahren deutlich an Bedeutung gewonnen. Unter zunehmendem Konkurrenzdruck, deutlichem Leserschwund und im Zuge der Digitalisierung haben die Zeitungsverlage verstärkt auf Fotos als so genannte "Eye Catcher" gesetzt. Diese scheinbare Oberflächlichkeit hat der Pressefotografie vor allem in der politischen Kommunikationsforschung erhebliche Kritik eingebracht: Alte Topoi von der "Bilderflut", der "Informationslosigkeit" und vom "Zerfall einer rational-argumentativen Sprachkultur" prägen die Diskussion. Die wissenschaftliche Aufarbeitung steht jedoch erst am Anfang und verläuft sich in den Bruchstellen zwischen den Fachgrenzen. Angesichts dieser Situation hat sich die vorliegende Arbeit zum Ziel gesetzt, eine theoretische Fundierung und empirische Analyse zu leisten, die die Strukturen und Strategien der Pressefotografie als Teilbereich des Foto-Journalismus systematisch offen legt und insbesondere die pressefotografische Politikberichterstattung in den Blick nimmt. Für den Bereich des Fotojournalismus und der Pressefotografie wird zunächst ein Überblick über die bisherigen Forschungsansätze und -ergebnisse in Kommunikations-, Kultur- bzw. Bild- und Politikwissenschaft gegeben, der sich auch speziell auf die Politikberichterstattung bezieht. Pressefotografie ist eindeutig durch inhaltliche Konventionen und routinisierte Darstellungsweisen wie bildästhetische Gestaltungskriterien geprägt. In Anknüpfung an den Konstruktivismus, an kunstwissenschaftliche Bildtheorien und die Systemtheorie wird ein theoretischer Rahmen entwickelt, durch den sich diese spezifischen Strategien des Fotojournalismus bzw. der Pressefotografie als Teilsystem des Journalismus als "Programme" begreifen und beschreiben lassen.

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.

Jan van Toorn is one of the most significant and influential Dutch graphic designers to have emerged since the early 1960s. His designs persistently call attention to their status as visual contrivances, obliging the viewer to make an effort to process their complexities. Van Toorn wants the public to measure the motives of both the client and the designer who mediates the client's message against their own experiences of the world. He hoped in this way to stimulate a more active and skeptical view of art, communication, media ownership and society. Projects such as Van Toorn's posters and catalogues for the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven and his long-running series of calendars for the printing firm Mart.Spruijt are powerful demonstrations of graphic design used as a means of commentary and as a tool of critique. Later, as director of the Jan van Eyck Academy, Van Toorn drew together all the strands of his critical practice into a multi-levelled educational initiative that urged designers to think harder about design's role in shaping contemporary reality.

Unmittelbar nach der Befreiung der nationalsozialistischen Konzentrationslager im Frühjahr 1945 entstanden Fotografien, die Berge von Leichen zeigen, Massengräber, halbverhungerte Überlebende auf Pritschen oder hinter Stacheldraht. Seit ihrer ersten Veröffentlichugn sind diese Aufnahmen Bestandteil einer öffentlichen Erinnerungskultur in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland geworden. Zu Schreckensbildern erstarrt, stehen sie als "Ikonen der Vernichtung" für die Unmemnschlichkeit des NS-Regimes. Der Begriff der Ikone liefert einen Schlüssel zum Verständnis der Kontexte, in denen diese Fotos aufgenommen, publiziert und betrachtet worden sind. Analog zu den religiösen Kultbildern gelten die Aufnahmen als authentisch, sie sind von hoher Symbolisierungkraft. Der Umgang mit den Fotos mutet ritualisiert an. Man schaut sie an und meint zu wissen, wofür sie stehen. Um die Fotografien der Lager aus ihrer Erstarrung zu lösen, die alles weitere Nachdenken über das Abgebildete zu erübrigen scheint, richtet das Buch von Cornelia Brink erstmals einen genauen Blick auf die Bilder. Die KZ-Fotografien liefern nicht nur einen Schlüssel zu der Zeit, aus der sie stammen, sondern auch zur (Verdrängungs-)Geschichte, die auf sie folgte. Die Studie verknüpft daher fotohistorische und -theoretische Fragen mit der Problematik öffentlich wirksamer Formen der Erinnerung an die Nationalsozialistische Vergangenheit. Sie zeigt, was verschiedene Institutionen in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland - alliierte Besatzungsmächte, Juristen, Publizisten, Pädagogen und Ausstellungsmacher - seit 1945 bis in die Gegenwart mit den "Ikonen der Vernichtung" angefangen haben.

Image Studies offers an engaging introduction to visual and image studies. In order to better understand images and visual culture the book seeks to bridge between theory and practice; asking the reader to think critically about images and image practices, but also simultaneously to make images and engage with image-makers and image-making processes. Looking across a range of domains and disciplines, we find the image is never a single, static thing. Rather, the image can be a concept, an object, a picture, or medium – and all these things combined. At the heart of this book is the idea of an ‘ecology of images’, through which we can examine the full ‘life’ of an image – to understand how an image resonates within a complex set of contexts, processes and uses. Part 1 covers theoretical perspectives on the image, supplemented with practical entries on making, researching and writing with images. Part 2 explores specific image practices and cultures, with chapters on drawing and painting; photography; visual culture; scientific imaging; and informational images. A wide range of illustrations complement the text throughout and each chapter includes creative tasks, keywords (linked to an online resource), summaries and suggested further reading. In addition, each of the main chapters include selected readings by notable authors across a range of subject areas, including: Art History, Business, Cognitive Science, Communication Studies, Infographics, Neuroscience, Photography, Physics, Science Studies, Social Semiotics, Statistics, and Visual Culture.

Garrett sketches the science and history of photography, populating her narrative with legendary figures like Margaret Bourke-White, a bold contemporary of her mother and with whom Susan sensed her mother's veiled competitiveness; pioneers of photography like Henri Cartier-Bresson, Daguerre, and Fox Talbot; and writers like Susan Sontag, whose work ponders the meaning and ethical responsibility of taking photographs and ordinary people who captured her imagination as a sensitive young girl - such as the Japanese man who taught her how to dry a stack of dishes, who later was sent away on a tip from her mother, most likely to an internment camp."--BOOK JACKET.

Black Star's catalogue of photos reflects the diversity of themes found in the history of photojournalism - from the International Brigade of the Spanish civil war to the misery of Rwandan refugees in a Zaircan camp. Black Star's immoral photographs range from a tramp sleeping on a Parisian shop window ledge to the back rooms of the Bank of England. Black Star's journalists are always at the right place at the right time to report on everything. This book not only contains many classic images but also includes several previously unpublished photo series. A captivating interaction is created between the related photographs of a reportage and the power of a single image. Above all, this book reveals that from the very start that Black Star and photojournalism have been closely bound together.
