Man Ray, Guido ComisMan Ray, Guido Comis Man Ray was a photographer, painter, and creator of objects, experimental films, and images which were at times enigmatic. This collection, which presents more than 200 works and compares and contrasts images with biographical details, is divided into three main sections: Man Ray’s formative years spent between New York and an artists’ colony in Ridgefield, New Jersey; the Paris period; and the period spent between Hollywood and Paris, France - the city he ultimately chose to adopt as his home. The publication describes the creation of some of his most famous pieces and the motifs - very often of females - that inspired the works.

Irving Penn: Small TradesIrving Penn: Small Trades Created in 1950 and 1951 in Paris, London, and New York, The Small Trades consists of portraits of skilled tradespeople dressed in their work clothes and carrying the tools of their respective trades. Capturing the humble coal heaver and the crisply dressed waiter with equal directness, Penn’s arresting portraits also underscore fascinating cultural differences. The Small Trades was Penn’s most extensive body of work, and he returned to it over many decades, producing ever more exacting prints.

In addition, the introductory essay describes the history and context of The Small Trades series and its importance to Penn’s career and the history of photography.

Karsh: A Biography In Images, Malcolm RogersKarsh: A Biography In Images, Malcolm Rogers During his remarkable life, Yousuf Karsh, who was born in Armenia in 1908, traveled the globe to photograph subjects ranging from historical figures to anonymous farmers to steelworks. Karsh's reputation as one of the most sought-after portrait photographers of the 20th century is well established. A roll call of his subjects is a veritable who's who of the modern age - Winston Churchill, Jacqueline Kennedy, Pablo Picasso, Walt Disney, Elizabeth Taylor and Albert Einstein, to name just a few - and this book features many of these figures, in some of the most recognized images of our time. But added to the portraits are a number of lesser-known or previously unpublished photographs--early figure studies, atmospheric views of the Ottawa theatre and scenes of wheat fields, city streets and factories across Canada.
