As John Loengard writes in the preface to this monograph, "The truth is: a good photograph cannot be repeated. This may be why a photograph of a brief moment, an instant in time, can hold our interest forever." Moment by Moment is an intriguing selection of many moments in John Loengard's long career. His subjects include movie stars, writers, politicians, artists, and other photographers, as well as normal people engaged in a host of extraordinary activities - or, rather, typical activities rendered unforgettable or of enduring interest by the photographer's vision. From a shimmering Marilyn Monroe to a brooding T.S. Eliot, from a now almost sinister silhouette of Bill Cosby to an iconic shot of the Beatles, from an Etonian to a boy in the streets of Manchester, as well as ranchers, sweepers, picnickers, and fellow photographers, Loengard's vision moves and delights us with his humanity and artistry.Moment by Moment enlarges our understanding and deepens our appreciation of Loengard's photographs.135 duotone photographs.3679 Руб.
The eclectic Orange County band No Doubt was formed in 1986 by Eric Stefani and John Spence who soon recruited Eric's younger sister Gwen as co-vocalist. With the addition of Tony Kanal on Bass, they launched a 20 year career that would fuse ska, grunge, alt. rock and shades of several other musical genres into a unique mix. The 1987 suicide of John Spence resulted in the battlefield promotion of Gwen to lead vocalist, a shift that would prove a launch pad for her future solo career and media celebrity status. Through it all No Doubt went from strength to strength and in 1995, following the departure of Eric Stefani, finally found mainstream success when their third album, Tragic Kingdom, enjoyed over 15 million sales worldwide. Since then this ska-loving band from Southern California has flourished. Despite a frequently changing line-up and the potential distraction of Sven's parallel solo career, No Doubt have stayed true to their mission to be musical and visual innovators.629 Руб.
So, it was the turn of Wishbone Ash to effect, in the nicest way, a little 'Norman invasion' of our own, in making this rockumentary. For our recording, we literally took over the beautiful old house and grounds of our friends Michel and Nathalie. Situated on the outskirts of the beautiful village of Blangy-le-Chateau, this rustic Norman provided the ideal makeshift studio. Its converted barn - turned private cinema, had its use changed yet again to become an audio and video studio. It functioned superbly as our creative space. The remote location of the property, allowed us to make as much noise as we wanted. Some of us stayed in the guest cottage and the others used a Gite just down the road, allowing for nice walks home at the end of the day, being mindful of the wild boars (sangliers) one might meet en route! France has always been a kind of sanctuary for the band, a place to get it together. In the early days we went there to find work. It was hard in 1970 in the UK with so much competition from other new bands. Fast forward to the summer of 2009 and I felt very much at home upon arrival and pretty soon, so did Joe, Muddy and Bob, who along with myself had all motored over to France. In Muddy's case, straining his ancient MG to the limit in order to make the round trip all the way from Helsinki, a 5,000 km road trip in all.979 Руб.
The remarkable naturalism of John Constable's paintings has always been acknowledged, and his 'vivid and timeless' (as he called them) oil sketches have been celebrated since the 1890s as precursors of Impressionism, modernism and photographic composition. He remains a powerful influence on contemporary artists, and was famously Lucian Freud's favourite painter. He was also hailed in 1866 as the first painter whose 'art is purely and thoroughly English', and his studio oil paintings have helped to define our idea of the English countryside. Published to accompany a major V&A exhibition, this book evaluates these aspects of Constable's work, placing the artist's naturalism and studio work in the context of his wider practice - in particular his talent for copying, and extensive print collection. A companion volume to John Constable: Oil Sketches from the Victoria and Albert Museum (page 6, V&A, 2011), this book shows how the artist's reverence for the Old Masters is not incompatible with his revolutionary handling of paint: where others competed with the Masters, Constable assimilated their ideas and values to imbue his own naturalistic vision with dynamism.2719 Руб.

In 1971, four college students got together to form a rock band. Since then, that certain band called Queen have released 26 albums and sold over 300 million records worldwide. The popularity of Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon is stronger than ever 40 years on. But it was no bed of roses. No pleasure cruise. Queen had their share of kicks in the face, but they came through and this is how they did it, set against the backdrop of brilliant music and stunning live performances from every corner of the globe. In this film, for the first time, it is the band that tells their story. Featuring brand new interviews with the band and unseen archive footage (including their recently unearthed, first ever TV performance), it is a compelling story told with intelligence, wit, plenty of humor and painful honesty.2438 Руб.
