"From 2004 to 2007 Martin Hyers and Will Mebane spent many months traveling across the United States on a picture-finding mission. Their goal was to photograph objects in people's homes and workplaces in order to fashion a time capsule of American material culture. ... In 2009, the artists began to document homes as a logical next step to the Empire pictures, to provide context for the objects. They mounted a strobe onto the roof of their car ... From homes the pair expanded their interests to Las Vegas, cars, zoos, and finally Here, a collection of images of retail stores, downtowns, restaurants, roads, overpasses, and other places where life takes place in public"--Preface.

September 26, 2014
Wild, Chris, 1970-
Washington, D.C. : National Geographic, [2014]
351 pages : illustrations (some color), color maps ; 23 cm
"This quirky blast to the past is a page-turner of some of the world's most jaw-dropping photographs, based on the wildly popular, and Chris Wild's unique wit and oddball knowledge. A crocodile walking a child, Queen Victoria caught smiling, and ponies at parking meters, all curiously depicted in this addicting photo album through time. "An emporium of retro treasure...from shocking sculptures of the 1700s, to Kodachrome snaps of 1950s Piccadilly Circus, to biblical scenes captured by Google Earth. Rather than nostalgia or folly, the aim is enlightenment, wonder and the pleasure of weirdness." --The Guardian Strap on your goggles and prepare to time travel with Retronaut to the past as you've never seen it. A space suit for dogs. Munchkins enjoying a cigarette break on the set of The Wizard of Oz. Ku Klux Klan members taking a spin on a ferris wheel. These images, and thousands more, make up the captivating world of the Retronaut, the Internet's most popular destination for vintage photography. In the words of Retronaut founder and chief curator, Chris Wild, the past is as exciting as a visit to a foreign country. Here, Wild has selected more than 400 of the best photographs from the site's most visited eras and themes, mashing up Victoriana with vintage advertising from the 60s and 70s with amazing inventions like pants for cows and breast wasershers for women. A launching pad for hours of conversation and a browser's delight, Retronaut is thought-provoking fun, and as perfect for collectors of unusual and humorous photography as it is for gift tables and special markets"-- Provided by publisher.

Invisibles : vintage portraits of love and pride

September 17, 2014
Lifshitz, Sébastien, 1968-
1 volume (unpaged) : chiefly illustrations, some color ; 22 cm
Originally published in French as "Les Invisibles" by Éditions Hoëbeke in 2013.
A charming collection of vintage photos of gay couples privately and often secretly celebrating their relationships. This volume is a unique collection of photographs of gay couples from 1900 to 1960. While this is a time many now regard as the deeply closeted "dark ages," these photos show gay couples who were clearly out (at least for a moment)-some camping it up for the cameras while others in loving or clearly domestic poses. These photographs were discovered and collected by the author at flea markets and garage sales, the names of the subjects and their photographers lost to time. He was intrigued by the fact that the pictures show couples posed hand in hand, revealing happiness, serenity, and a surprising air of freedom so unlike the image of gays suffering in secret or fighting for their rights. This unique collection inspired Sebastien Lifshitz to restore to these nameless couples their voices in his documentary movie The Invisibles for which he was awarded the Cesar Award for Best Documentary in 2013.
