  • Art of Landscape Photography
    Art of Landscape Photography
    There are many general titles on landscape photography, but few that really tackle the issue of composition in great depth. The Art of Landscape Photography assumes a good working knowledge of the technical basics such as correct exposure, filtration, and sharpness and concentrates on the 'heart and soul' of landscape photography: the principles of composition and aesthetic design to convey meaning and emotion. While technique will not be ignored, the emphasis will be on how it impacts on the aesthetics of the image; for example, using filtration to enhance the mood of a scene rather than simply to balance the extremes of contrast. Because of the nature of the subject matter, this is very much a picture-led book, with numerous example pictures to illustrate the compositional points being discussed. At the back of the book there will be thumbnails of all the pictures used, with a summary of the technical details camera, lens, ISO, shutter speed, aperture, filtration to ensure that those who crave technical information are not disappointed. AUTHORS: Mark Bauer is a professional landscape photographer specialising in atmospheric images of Dorset and the New Forest. He is a regular contributor to the UK photographic press with his dramatic images appearing in numerous national and county publications, in particular Digital SLR Photography magazine, on book covers, cards and calendars. Ross is an award-winning wildlife and landscape photographer, the author of several photography books, and a regular contributor to the photo press. Based in North Cornwall, England, Ross is best known for his beautiful macro and close-up images, and for evocative landscape photographs. He co-runs the photography workshop company Dawn2Dusk Photography and also provides bespoke 1-2-1 tuition. As well as judging major nature photography competitions, Ross has been a brand ambassador for leading photography equipment brands including Nikon UK, Manfrotto, and F-stop Gear. 250 photographs, 10 illustrations

  • Basquiat and the Art of Storytelling
    Basquiat and the Art of Storytelling
    The legend of Jean-Michel Basquiat is as strong as ever. Synonymous with 1980s New York, the artist first appeared in the late 1970s under the tag SAMO, spraying caustic comments and fragmented poems on the walls of the city. He appeared as part of a thriving underground scene of visual arts and graffiti, hip hop, post-punk, and DIY filmmaking, which met in a booming art world. As a painter with a strong personal voice, Basquiat soon broke into the established milieu, exhibiting in galleries around the world.

    Basquiat’s expressive style was based on raw figures and integrated words and phrases. His work is inspired by a pantheon of luminaries from jazz, boxing, and basketball, with references to arcane history and the politics of street life?so when asked about his subject matter, Basquiat answered “royalty, heroism and the streets.” In 1983 he started collaborating with the most famous of art stars, Andy Warhol, and in 1985 was on the cover of The New York Times Magazine. When Basquiat died at the age of 27, he had become one of the most successful artists of his time.

    First published in an XXL edition, this unprecedented insight into Basquiat’s art is now available in a compact, accessible volume in celebration of TASCHEN’s 40th anniversary. With pristine reproductions of his most seminal paintings, drawings, and notebook sketches, it offers vivid proximity to Basquiat’s intricate marks and scribbled words, further illuminated by an introduction to the artist from editor Hans Werner Holzwarth, as well as an essay on his themes and artistic development from curator and art historian Eleanor Nairne. Richly illustrated year-by-year chapter breaks follow the artist’s life and quote from his own statements and contemporary reviews to provide both personal background and historical context.

  • Landscape
    Landscape
    After a career spanning sixty years, Sir Don McCullin, once a witness to conflict across the globe, has become one of the great landscape photographers of our time. McCullin's pastoral view is far from idyllic. Though the woods and stream close to his house in Somerset have offered some respite, he has not sought out the quiet corners of rural England. He is drawn, instead, to the drama of approaching storms. He has an acute sense of how the emptiness of his immediate landscape echoes a wider tone of disquiet.

    McCullin is based in the geographical centre of southern England. The presence of sacred mounds, hill forts, ancient roads and the nearby monuments of the prehistoric era have shaped his sense of nationhood. But down on the Somerset Levels, he has tramped through the flooded lowlands. The imagery of his home county, ravaged by storms, inevitably projects the associations of a battlefield, or, at least, the views of one intimate with scenes of war.

    He is not alone in his preference for darkened clouds over clear skies. McCullin's West Country is not far removed from the East Anglia of Constable's Dedham Vale two centuries earlier. His knowledge of his historical predecessors places him deep in a Romantic tradition. His experience as a traveller reinforces the sense of a man on the edge of civilisation under siege. Nowhere is this more apparent than in his repeated views of the glories of Palmyra and of the destruction of this ancient Syrian city.

    The Landscape is the last in a long series of books published by Jonathan Cape, which encompasses the entirety of McCullin's working life.
