Fresh, inspiring, insightful, thought-provoking: this book is an overview and introduction to over 160 of the most exciting contemporary photographers working in different cultures around the world right now.
Fresh, inspiring, insightful, thought-provoking: here is an overview and introduction to 162 of the most exciting contemporary photographers from cultures around the world. Since 2004, LensCulture has sought to discover the most interesting photographers working worldwide. Our editorial team scours the globe--attending festivals, portfolio reviews, exhibitions and graduation shows--in search of new and developing talents. And each year, we host four to six annual photography awards (published in 14 major languages) to extend our reach even further. Using the power of the internet, social media, and tapping into photography networks worldwide, we are committed to finding and rewarding the most deserving photographers, no matter where they are. And we want to share our discoveries with photography lovers everywhere. The work in this book represents the best of four international awards. The LensCulture Exposure Awards, our longest-running awards, are dedicated to discovering the freshest and most exciting photography work being created today, without limitations of genre, style or subject matter--these awards highlight the many ways the visual language of photography can be used to tell compelling stories, express emotions, explain complex situations, reveal injustices, share the wonders of nature or celebrate beauty. The Portrait Awards seek to explore the possibilities of 21st century portraiture. In this age of endless selfies and oversharing of mundane moments, what gives a portrait authenticity? The Street Photography Awards look for new approaches to capturing the drama, interactions and juxtapositions that occur on the world's busy streets today, from the dense urban culture and clashing fashions of megacities to daily life in remote towns and villages. And finally, the Emerging Talent Awards celebrate exceptional photographers who are not yet known on the world stage. They are selected for their abilities to use photography in profound ways. These awards are granted without regard to the age of the photographers or how long they've been practicing photography--they have earned their time to shine.

As digital cameras and software packages become more advanced, seemingly by the minute, it has become easier than ever to overlook the basic elements which have always resulted in the best photographs, no matter how fancy (or primitive) the camera itself. Composition is the single most important aspect of creating great images, no matter what level of photographer you happen to be. No amount of digital wizardry can turn a badly composed image into a picture you would want to display. While many books on composition tend to overcomplicate the subject, this book breaks down everything you need to know into small, digestible chunks of information that you will actually remember once you're out and about taking pictures. Instead of plodding through long and complex pages of text, this book supplements the necessary information, such as the basics of the rule of thirds and how to get good highlights and shadows, with tons of gorgeous, full color images that actually show you what to do and how to do it, rather than just telling you what to try. You'll be amazed at the gorgeous images you'll create, whether your passion is for photographing your family, pets, travel adventures, nature, or anything else.

Author: Dwight N. Hopkins
Publisher: Fortress Pr
Whether concerned with health, law, ethics, social relations, or relationship with God, religious thought today runs squarely into the question: what does it mean to be human? Dwight Hopkins, whose important work in Black Theology has mediated classic theological concerns through the prism of African American culture, here offers a fresh take on theological anthropology. Rather than defining "the human" as one eternal or inviolable essence, however, Hopkins looks to the multiple and conflicting notions of the human in contemporary thought, and particularly three key variables: culture, self, and race. What in a traditional framework were seen as "accidents" now take center stage, and Hopkins's critical reframing of these concepts firmly locates human endeavor, development, transcendence, and liberation in the particular messiness of struggle and strife. This major work from a leading black theologian frames the debate about being human in a way that opens rather than closes our self-questioning.

School systems in the United States are not serving Latino students well, especially those from low-income families. This book examines difficulties encountered by Mexican-origin students--one of the fastest growing minority groups--and describes why some schools fall short and how others have improved student outcomes. The focus throughout the book is on positive changes that school staff, families, community, and students can make. Each chapter uses a different lens--culture, language, gender, family and community, and social and political context--to examine issues and challenges affecting first- and second-generation Mexican American children. Chapters are: (1) The Mexican American Student Population: Growth and Diversity (demography, immigration, academic achievement, innovative programs); (2) Cultural Perspectives on Learning (cultural influences on classroom organization and achievement, child rearing, parent education programs); (3) Language, Literacy, and Creating Bridges to Success (the bilingual education controversy, learning English, maintaining Spanish, special needs of migrant students); (4) Gender Issues in Mexican American Schooling (sex role attitudes, teen pregnancy, school factors, peers); (5) Creating Family-School Partnerships (family poverty, parent-school relationship, parent involvement, community outreach, successful programs); and (6) Political, Social, and Pedagogical Issues Impacting Early Childhood Education and Public Schools (immigration and education policy, politics of early childhood education, teacher training, intergroup relations). Chapter 7 describes organizations and programs that provide resources and services. Contains over 300 references, chapter notes, and an index. (SV)
