Erotica UniversalisThis is an erotic history of humanity. From the dawn of time, ever since Adam and Eve, all artists of every age - whether the Egyptian, Greek and Roman artists of Antiquity, or more recent famous names as Rembrandt, Courbet, Degas or Picasso - have succumbed to their fantasies, obsessions and libido, and produced erotic works that the censors have taken good care to keep from the public. For Erotica, we surface ...

Cosmic Communist Constructions PhotographedPhotographer Frederic Chaubin reveals 90 buildings sited in fourteen former Soviet Republics which express what he considers to be the fourth age of Soviet architecture. His poetic pictures reveal an unexpected rebirth of imagination, an unknown burgeoning that took place from 1970 until 1990. Contrary to the 1920s and 1950s, no “school” or main trend emerges here. These buildings represent a chaotic impulse ...

Fritz Gruber collection, from which this book is drawn, is one of the most important in Germany and one of the most representative anywhere ...

Linda McCartney: Life in PhotographsIn 1966, during a brief stint as a receptionist for Town and Country magazine, Linda Eastman snagged a press pass to a very exclusive promotional event for the Rolling Stones aboard a yacht on the Hudson River; her fresh, candid photographs of the band were far superior to the formal shots made by the band`s official photographer, and she was instantly on the way to making a name for herself as a top rock `n` ...

Photographers A-ZThere's no question - photography is the medium of our age. Despite all the competition from various (especially flickering) media - the "great still" (Norbert Bolz) remains in first place. Not only when it's a matter of the visual arts. On the market as well - in galleries and auction houses - the "fine art print" is well established, with photographic prints being seen as works of art and thus as investments. ...

Robert Doisneau"For over six decades, Robert Doisneau cast his net in still waters, light years away from the predatory news photographers of today, 'feeling his way', in his own words, 'prompted by feelings of attraction and repulsion, tossed hither and thither by events, and allowing intuition its head - even when it kicked over the traces..."
