Jun 9, 2012 Documentary: 20th Century The FSA (Farm Security Administration) 
 
ThumbnailThumbnailThumbnail
 
  
The PhotoHistory group on Yahoo had a recent posting (6 June 2012) on the collection of FSA - Farm Security Administration prints held at New York Public Library. Roy Stryker had the foresight to send boxes of over 41,000 prints to the library and over 1000 of these are not included in the extensive collections at the Library of Congress .
 
This new online source has prompted me to update an existing online exhibition on Luminous-lint and expand the examples.

Jun 3, 2012 Photobooks: Reference Books on Photobooks 
 
ThumbnailThumbnailThumbnail
 
  
As the variety of photobooks has expanded so has the number of reference works providing a selection of them and background to them. These books vary in quality but they each provide insights into books that few of us will ever see. They are recommended for the shelves of anybody with an interest in photo-history.

Jun 2, 2012 Smoking, cigarettes and cigars 
 
ThumbnailThumbnailThumbnail
 
  
Tobacco! which from east to west,
Cheers the tar's labour or the Turkman's rest;
Which on the Moslem's ottoman divides
His hours, and rivals opium and his brides;
Magnificent in Stamboul, but less grand,
Though not less loved, in Wapping or the Strand:
Divine in hookas, glorious in a pipe,
When tipp'd with amber, mellow, rich, and ripe;
Like other charmers wooing the caress,
More dazzlingly when daring in full dress;
Yet thy true lovers more admire by far
Thy naked beauties—Give me a cigar!
 
Lord Byron, The Island, Canto II, Stanza 19.

A temperance song...
 
The Price of Drink
 
"Five cents a glass!"
Does anyone think that that is really the price of a drink?
The price of a drink?
Let him decide who has lost his courage and lost his pride,
His honor and virtue, the wreath of fame
All high endeavor and noble name.
For these are the treasures thrown away
As the price of a drink from day to day.
 
"Five cents a glass!"
Does anyone think that that is really the price of a drink?
 
"Five cents a glass!" How Satan laughed,
as over the bar the young man quaffed
The fiery liquor, for the demon knew
The terrible work that drink would do,
And ere the morning the victim lay
With his life blood ebbing swiftly away
And that was the price he paid, alas!
For the pleasure of taking a social glass.
 
"Five cents a glass!"
Does anyone think that that is really the price of a drink?
 
The price of a drink! If you want to know
What some are willing to pay for it, go
To that wretched tenement over there
With dingy windows and broken stair,
Where foul disease like a vampire crawls
With outstretched wings on the mouldy walls,
Where poverty dwells with her hungry brood,
All wild-eyed as demons for lack of food,
Where shame in a corner crouches low
Where violence deals its cruel blow
And innocent ones are kicked and cursed
To pay the price of this dreadful thirst.
 
"Five cents a glass!" "Five cents a glass!"
Does anyone think that that is really the price of a drink?
That that is really the price of a drink?

May 25, 2012 Cliché verre 
 
ThumbnailThumbnailThumbnail
 
  
Cliché-verre [Fr.] literally translated means "glass picture' and is a technique that combines art and photography and was used mainly by French artists including Jean Baptiste Corot, Jean François Millet, and Charles François Daubigny. It was normally done by using a smoking candle to coat a glass plate with soot. The desired picture was then drawn with a sharp instrument directly into the blackened surface and the resulting plate was used as a photographic negative and contact printed. Although mainly used in the 1860s the cliché verre technique has also be used by György Kepes and Abelardo Morell.

May 20, 2012 Native Americans 1840-1920 
 
ThumbnailThumbnailThumbnail
 
  
This exhibition includes many of the classic photographs by Edward S. Curtis, Humphrey Lloyd Hime, Timothy H. O'Sullivan, Alexander Gardner , Ben Wittick, De Lancey W. Gill, William Henry Jackson, Carl Moon, Frank Rinehart and numerous others. It also includes rarer Daguerreotypes along with photographs of the Indian delegations.
 
Whilst this is interesting it is only a partial story as it reflects how Native Americans were recorded by outsiders rather than themselves. Further exhibitions will address these issues.
