David Goldblatt is an exemplary documentary photographer, whose work is a life long observation of the social and political developments within South African society. Goldblatt has evolved in his vision as much as the society he has documented, by putting his finger on the pulse of change and its vulnerability. He has been concerned to explore the relationship between individual subjects and the structures within which they live. His interest in the violent history of his country, and his awareness of the symbolic significance of architecture form an extraordinary statement both personal and socio-political. Photography, in the words of David Goldblatt, reveals "something of the subtlety and ambiguity of our shifting and frequently contradictory perceptions of reality." His acute historical and political perception provides a sense of the texture of daily life, and in important piece of missing information regarding life under apartheid in South Africa. This book is the first chance to see how his new colour work relates to his earlier black and white photography, and to understand the natural progression to be found in his work.

Flash! presents a fascinating cultural history of flash photography, from its mid-nineteenth century beginnings to the present day. All photography requires light, but the light of flash photography is quite distinctive: artificial, sudden, shocking, intrusive, and extraordinarily bright. Associated with revelation and wonder, it has been linked to the sublimity of lightning. Yet it has also been reviled: it's inseparable from anxieties about intrusion and violence, it creates a visual disturbance, and its effects are often harsh and create exaggerated contrasts. Flash! explores flash's power to reveal shocking social conditions, its impact on the representation of race, its illumination of what would otherwise remain hidden in darkness, and its capacity to put on display the most mundane corners of everyday life. It looks at flash's distinct aesthetics, examines how paparazzi chase celebrities, how flash is intimately linked to crime, how flash has been used to light up - and interrupt - countless family gatherings, how flash can 'stop time' allowing one to photograph rapidly moving objects or freeze in a strobe, and it considers the biggest flash of all, the atomic bomb. Examining the work of professionals and amateurs, news hounds and art photographers, photographers of crime and of wildlife, the volume builds a picture of flash's place in popular culture, and its role in literature and film. Generously illustrated throughout, Flash! brings out the central role of this medium to the history of photography and challenges some commonly held ideas about the nature of photography itself.

When thinking of late-twentieth-century Britain, we often think of pop exports like The Beatles, the Sex Pistols or The Smiths and forget that England, from the late 60s through the 80s, was brutally depressed by inflation, unemployment, strikes, blackouts and racial unrest. Beginning in the early 70s, the Arts Council of Great Britain (now Arts Council England) began to commission photographers--including now-well-known artists, such as Ian Breakwell and Martin Parr--to document these turbulent and changing times through black-and-white photographs. By the 1980s, the British Council had also begun to collect new color photography by artists who were documenting the social scene. This volume brings the two collections together, with an essay by photography historian and critic David A. Mellor. A radically new picture of these 20 pivotal years emerges.

Art, in its many forms, has long played an important role in people’s imagination, experience and remembrance of places, cultures and travels as well as in their motivation to travel. Travel and tourism, on the other hand, have also inspired numerous artists and featured in many artworks. The fascinating relationships between travel, tourism and art encompass a wide range of phenomena from historical ‘Grand Tours’ during which a number of travellers experienced or produced artwork, to present-day travel inspired by art, artworks produced by contemporary travellers or artworks produced by locals for tourist consumption. Focusing on the representations of ‘touristic’ places, locals, travellers and tourists in artworks; the role of travel and tourism in inspiring artists; as well as the role of art and artwork in imagining, experiencing and remembering places and motivating travel and tourism; this edited volume provides a space for an exploration of both historical and contemporary relationships between travel, tourism and art. Bringing together scholars from a wide range of disciplines and fields of study including geography, anthropology, history, philosophy, and urban, cultural, tourism, art and leisure studies, this volume discusses a range of case studies across different art forms and locales.
