Reseña del editor:

The literal believability of any photograph today can be called into question in view of the possibilities of computer manipulation. Was it ever so?This unique collection of photographs from the turn of the century shows how "retouchng" was used, even at the outset, to manipulate reality. Drawn from the Metz collection in Baden-Wurttemburg, the images come from the early postcard producer, Geler, and range across an astonishingly diverse field of subjects.Included are classic postcard scenes, but also the first soccer players, natives in Cameroon, folkfests in Southern Germany, zeppelins and much more. Over 200 photographs, based on the original large format glass negatives, show "manipulated" images from 1896-1920.This book is a must for students of the history of photography and connoisseurs of the genre.

Descripción de la librería

We stock books about art, design, fashion, heritage/history and gender/sexuality, specialising in books about Australian, Asian & Pacific arts, crafts design and cultural history. Since we are committed to marginalised and innovative social and cultural practices, we are more likely to have books on women artists or dissident life than coffee-table books on iconic figures. This shop is in Sydney's legendary Kings Cross area, which has provided alternatives to this country's normalcy and suburbia for the last 80 years. Colloquially known as 'The Cross', this name signifies Antipodean bohemia, streetgangs and a world-famous red light district etc. THE CROSS Art + Books is a foundation member of The Bookdealers Guild (NSW).
