Photography And Doubt from the Author: Sabine Tania Kriebel. Recent decades have seen photography's privileged relationship to the real come under question. Spurred by the postmodern critique of photography in the 1980s and the rise of digital technologies soon thereafter, scholars have been asking who and what built this understanding of the medium in the first place. Photography and Doubt reflects on this interest in photography's referential power by discussing it in rigorously historical terms. How was the understanding of photographic realism cultivated in the first place? What do cases of staged and manipulated photography reveal about that realism's hold on audiences across the medium's history? Have doubts about photography's testimonial power stimulated as much knowledge as its realism? Edited by Sabine T. Kriebel and Andres Mario Zervigon, Photography and Doubt is the first multi-authored collection specifically designed to explore these questions. Its 13 original essays, illustrated with 73 color images, explore cases when the link between the photographic image and its referent was placed under stress, and when photography was as attuned to its myth-making capabilities as to its claims to authenticity. Photography and Doubt will serve as a valuable resource for students and scholars in art history, visual and media studies, philosophy, and the history of science and technology.

Japanese Goth from the Author: Tiffany Godoy. This book is a visual foray into Japan's popular and influential Gothic-Lolita and Gothic Punk subculture. It showcases a creative lifestyle synthesized from a remix of Victoriana, the macabre, anime, and theatricality, drawing on the early punks of the '70s and '80s and the club kids of the '90s. Japanese Goth blends disparate elements of global pop culture into something fun, stylish, and unique--part Marilyn Manson, part Hello Kitty. It attracts established figures from Tokyo's trendsetting fashion, art, and design scenes, and has inspired the next generation of designers, tastemakers, and fashionistas. Featured here are key designers, artists, and personalities including Mana & Gackt, Kokusyoku Sumire, Ayako-S, Koitsukihime, Gloomy Bear, and many others.

from the Author: Аґата Крісті. Бельгійський детектив Еркюль Пуаро мусить терміново виїхати зі Стамбула до Англії, але вільних місць у «Східному експресі» вже немає. Його виручає давній друг мсьє Бук, власник компанії, котрій належить поїзд. Зранку за сніданком детектив помічає, що пасажири поїзда — люди різних національностей, які випадково опинилися в одному вагоні. Американець Ретчетт, що видається Пуаро надто підозрілим, просить детектива стати його охоронцем. Але той відмовляється. Уночі Пуаро весь час будитимуть різні звуки й стукоти, а потім настане тиша – через снігові замети поїзд зупинився десь в Югославії, пасажири в напруженні, а дивний містер Ретчетт лежить мертвим у своєму купе… Детектив Пуаро береться до розслідування.
