Communicating the Environment Beyond Photography is a modern look at how photographers visualize what is happening to people and places on a changing planet. Michelle I. Seelig draws attention to what compels photographers to focus on these important messages, what tools they are using to advocate for just causes, and how photographers engage directly with citizens in a meaningful conversation beyond the photograph. Photographers continue to document the land and nature as they always have; however, today they use all media to advocate wide-ranging environmental concerns. Photographers, filmmakers, and environmentalists engage the public with visual and technologically driven content that is both affordable and portable, allowing advocacy to transcend boundaries in the global community previously overlooked by traditional media. This innovative book showcases strategies practiced by photographers, environmentalists, and advocacy groups in the twenty-first century and will serve as inspiration for future advocates of environmental issues and other important and just causes. Accessible and user-friendly, Communicating the Environment Beyond Photography is a must-read for both future photographers and individuals interested in communicating and advocating for environmental and social change.

William Henry Fox Talbot (1800–1877) was a British pioneer in photography, yet he also embraced the wider preoccupations of the Victorian Age—a time that saw many political, social, intellectual, technical, and industrial changes. His manuscripts, now in the archive of the British Library, reveal the connections and contrasts between his photographic innovations and his investigations into optics, mathematics, botany, archaeology, and classical studies. Drawing on Talbot's fascinating letters, diaries, research notebooks, botanical specimens, and photographic prints, distinguished scholars from a range of disciplines, including historians of science, art, and photography, broaden our understanding of Talbot as a Victorian intellectual and a man of science.

In Bewegung setzen, in Bewegung sein? den rebellischen Forschergeist, der Alfons Schilling 1960 von der Akademie für angewandte Kunst in Wien, wo er mit Günter Brus den Aktionismus vorbereitet hatte, nach Paris und New York trieb, bewahrte sich der Künstler über seine lange Karriere auch in den Sehmaschinen und fotografischen Arbeiten. Die Kippbilder seiner Linsenrasterfotografien dynamisieren den Blick und verschmelzen mehrere Aufnahmen in einem Bild. Hologramme und Stereofotografien öffnen die Bildoberfläche zu einem virtuellen Raum. Wer heute mit head-mounted Displays 3-D-Welten bereist, wandelt auf Pfaden, die Schilling schon in den 1970er-Jahren beschritten hat. Mit diesem Buch liegt der Fokus erst- mals auf der erweiterten Fotografie des Visionärs, bis hin zu den filmischen Experimenten und performativen Projektionen. Zentrales Thema seines bahnbrechenden Schaffens ist eine Kritik der Wahrnehmung, die Entfesselung des Sehens selbst:?It?s not what?s on the picture? it?s what is behind it.? 00Exhibition: WestLicht, Wien, Austria (14.02-14.05.2017).

Great portraits go beyond a mere record of a face. They reveal one of the millions of intimate human moments that make up a life. In Beyond Portraiture, renowned photographer Bryan Peterson shows how to spot those “ah-ha!” moments and capture them forever. A teary child...old people laughing together...a smiling girl with big, big hair. Everyone remember pictures like these, usually taken by a mother, a father, a friend holding a camera, forever preserving small yet revealing vignettes of our personal histories. But we always relied on pure luck and chance to catch those moments. Peterson’s approach explains what makes a photo memorable, how to spot the universal themes that everyone can identify with, and how to use lighting, setting, and exposure to reveal the wonder and the joy of everyday moments. Beyond Portraiture makes it easy to create indelible memories with light and shadow.

This, the second book in the Beyond Trilogy, expands on John and Katie's experiences and photographs of the orb phenomena covered in their first book. It reveals astounding new photographs and opens up exciting new questions about the whole nature of paranormal phenomena in general. John and Katie's photographs of orbs, angels and other apparitions have brought them into worldwide contact with other experiencers and researchers: it is from this basis that they now take a major step beyond the visible photographable phenomena, and current New Age notions about orbs, to reveal new insights about the paranormal. Could it be that orbs are the indicators of a wider, "beyond" reality? Is the symbology of orbs as images of oneness, drawing our attention to the most important orb of all: the orb of Earth on which we all live? Their ongoing photographs, personal experiences, and the amazing synchronistic events they found themselves part of reveal a conscious, purposeful phenomena that can interact with us as individuals, whoever and wherever we are. This inevitably leads to a spiritual perspective that crosses all religious and cultural boundaries, helping us to see that this one blue orb of Earth on which we all live, is greater than all that divides us! Orbs & Beyond is the vital visual link between Beyond Photography, and the forthcoming Beyond Reality.

"Beyond the Sea is frightening but beautiful." --M John Harrison, The Guardian The haunting story of two men stranded at sea pushing against their physical and mental limits to stay alive Based partly on true events, Paul Lynch’s haunting and sublime novel Beyond the Sea tells the story of two South American fishermen, Bolivar and Hector, who go to sea before a catastrophic storm. Needing cash, Bolivar convinces his boss to let him fish despite the weather. His fishing partner is nowhere to be found, so he brings Hector, a sullen and inexperienced teenager. The storm arrives, and though the two men survive, they’ve been blown hundreds of miles out in the Pacific Ocean with little hope for rescue. Coming to terms with their new reality, they are forced to accept their separation from the modern world, their sudden and inescapable intimacy, and the possibilities and limits of faith, hope, and survival. As the days go by, they grapple with the mistakes of their pasts, the severity of their present, and the uncertainty of their future. And though Bolivar and Hector fight to maintain their will to live, nothing in the barren seascape or in their minds promises that they will make it. Ambitious and profoundly moving, Beyond the Sea explores what it means to be a man, a friend, and a sinner in a fallen world. With evocative prose, Lynch crafts a suspenseful drama that refuses sentimentality or easy answers. Instead, Beyond the Sea is a hard-won and intimate rendering of the extremities of human life, both physical and mental.
