Karsh

release date: Jun 06, 2013
Karsh
In August and September of 1988, Yousuf Karsh's long-time assistant, Jerry Fielder, sat down with the master photographer and taped over 9 hours of recollections of the many portrait sessions he'd experienced in one of the greatest careers in history. Karsh spoke of his sitters and his rags-to-riches life, including much that had never before been revealed or recorded. Previously, Karsh had often paired his full-page portraits with stories of his encounters with famous sitters. However, as his œuvre grew, the photographs soon eclipsed the commentary, and his essays were often edited down to captions. Drawing from the newly rediscovered 1988 recordings, Karsh: Beyond the Camera reestablishes the original presentation of Karsh's work, pairing each photograph with the story of its making on the facing page. Here, Karsh's portraits are elucidated and complemented both by his own recollections and by the text of veteran curator David Travis. The resulting book, with its chronological rather than thematic arrangement of portraits, is a study of Karsh's artistic and stylistic development, offering the reader an unparalleled tour through the greatest images of the photographer's life work. As much as Karsh wrote about his portrait sessions, he rarely revealed what he thought about himself. Travis constructs the compelling history of how a brilliant technician behind the camera was able to go beyond the studio trappings to plumb the psychological realm all great portrait photographers must navigate and master. Although Karsh had a deep understanding of the human psyche, he worked on an emotional level rather than an analytical one. Thus, his stories seldom addressed what he thought about his artistic experiences. This essential element of Karsh's work is what David Travis locates and fills in, drawing not only from the anecdotes themselves, but from the one thing that has been missing from all publications prior to this – the photographer's voice.

At the Edge of the Light

release date: Jan 01, 2003
At the Edge of the Light
In these seven essays, revised, rewritten, and expanded from his lectures, David Travis presents his thoughts on some of his favorite subjects: Weston, Stieglitz, Kertesz, Brassai, and Strand. His knowledge is such (often enriched by firsthand acquaintance) that he can, and does, discuss more than images or personalities; he understands what informs the work, from what milieu it derives, under what influences it matured, how it evolved, and how it succeeded. He is an art historian willing to venture far beyond the periphery of traditional academic fences; to discuss number theory (quite literally), the mathematics of G. H. Hardy, the poetry of Rimbaud Valery, Rilke, and Goethe, the philosophy of Nietzsche, the extravagance of Henry Miller.

Effective Color Displays

release date: Jan 01, 1991
Effective Color Displays
The increasing use of color in electronic displays has been one of the major developments in the computer interface in recent years. Color not only adds an aesthetic quality to displays but is also an effective way of conveying complex information. It has important uses in tasks where identification, coding, and response times are critical. Unfortunately, many interface designers have little scientific appreciation of the effective and productive use of color in displays in the context of the human visual system. This book provides both the theoretical background and the practical guidelines for effective use of color in the computer display.**Effective Color Displays may be used as a tutorial text for courses on color displays or a practical guide for hands-on design. It will be essential reading for programmers, engineers, and psychologists concerned with color applications at the user interface. The book provides an introduction to both the color visual and display systems and develops into a full practical text for effective color display design. Color illustrations, as well as functions for color manipulation in C, look-up tables for color coordinates, and a checklist for display environments are included.
