Die Photographien von Cy Twombly (1928-2011) erblickten erst spät das Licht der Öffentlichkeit, faszinierten aber sofort durch ihre eigentümliche Ästhetik und die ´´stille Präsenz´´ (Helmut Friedel), die sie ausstrahlen. Unser kleiner, eleganter Band, der eine Studio-Ausstellung im Museum Frieder Burda, Baden-Baden, als Katalog begleitet, versammelt 35 von Cy Twomblys eindrucksvollsten Photographien aus den Jahren von 1944 bis 2006, ausgewählt aus einer bedeutenden Münchner Privatsammlung. Alle Schauplätze, Themen und Motive, die dem Künstler lieb und wichtig waren, sind hier vertreten: das New Yorker Atelier in der Fulton Street, das er mit Robert Rauschenberg teilte, seine geliebten Päonien, Interieurs, Landschaften in Lexington, Virginia und im italienischen Gaeta und Detailansichten seiner Skulpturen und Gemälde. Aufwändig gedruckt und mit einem Essay des Münchner Kunsthistorikers und langjährigen Direktors der Städtischen Galerie im Lenbachhaus, Helmut Friedel, bietet unser Buch einen repräsentativen Einblick in das poetisch-sinnliche photographische Werk von Cy Twombly - und das zu einem erstaunlich günstigen Preis.

First published in 1929 and destroyed by the Nazis, the abbreviated Sander Face of Our Time with sixty portraits selected by the artist completes the Schirmer/Mosel Sander edition. Mit dem Buch Antlitz der Zeit von August Sander (1876-1964) legen wir einen legendären Klassiker der deutschen Photoliteratur wieder vor. Wie kein anderer Portraitphotograph hat August Sander es verstanden, in seinen Arbeiten nüchterne Dokumentation und psychologisch subtile Menschenkenntnis zu vereinen. Seine Aufnahmen, mit wenigen Ausnahmen in den zwanziger Jahren entstanden, sind ein äußerst differenzierter Spiegel des Menschenbilds der Weimarer Republik. Der expressionistische Schriftsteller Alfred Döblin verfaßte das einleitende Vorwort zu diesem von Sander selbst zusammengestellten, 1929 erstmals erschienenen Band.

Exploring Richard Avedon´s fascination with France, Avedon´s France brings together a collection of spectacular photographs; selected interviews, letters, publications, and writings (including new material from the Avedon Foundation archives); and substantive essays by the authors. In addition to five portfolios of French sitters spanning a lifetime of portraiture, it looks at Avedon´s apprenticeship to his mentor, Alexei Brodovitch; his encounters with French fashion; his idealized version of Paris in the movie Funny Face ; his fresh take on the belle epoque in his book on Jacques-Henri Lartigue, Diary of a Century ; and his fruitful association with the magazine Egoïste later in his life. Avedon´s France offers a full account of Avedon´s restless pursuit of new ways of looking at the world, and it reveals a master image maker, a true artist for his time.
When Frida Kahlo died, her husband Diego Rivera asked the poet Carlos Pellicer to turn the Blue House into a museum that the people of Mexico could visit to admire the work of the artist. Pellicer selected those of Frida´s paintings which were in the house, along with drawings, photographs, books, and ceramics, maintaining the spaces just as Frida and Diego had arranged them to live and work in. The rest of the objects, clothing, documents, drawings, and letters, as well as over 6,000 photographs collected by Frida in the course of her life, were put away in bathrooms converted into storerooms. This remarkable collection remained hidden for more than half a century. A few years ago the storerooms, wardrobes, and trunks that safeguarded it were opened. The collection of photographs is a treasure that reveals the tastes and interests of the famous couple, not only through the images themselves but also through the annotations made on them. The collection allows us to speculate about Frida´s and Diego´s likes and dislikes, and makes it possible to document their family origins. Photography had always been a part of Frida´s life. Her father Guillermo Kahlo was one of the great photographers of Mexico at the beginning of the twentieth century, whose images of colonial architecture and numerous selfportraits have been preserved. Frida´s collection constitutes a roll call of great photographers: Man Ray, Brassaï, Martin Munkacsi, Pierre Verger, George Hurrell, Tina Modotti, Edward Weston, Manuel and Lola Álvarez Bravo, Gisèle Freund, and many others, including Frida Kahlo herself. It is likely that many of the photographs in the collection were taken by her, though we can only be sure of the few that she decided to sign in 1929
