Dennis Stock: James Dean
Dennis Stock: James
An intimate and searching visual portrait of the star-crossed Hollywood icon, James Dean With three major films―East of Eden, Rebel Without a Cause, and Giant―all released within a year of each other and within months of his tragic death, James Dean captured the world’s imagination and has never let it go. Magnum photographer Dennis Stock met James Dean at the Château Marmont in Hollywood in 1954, and they became fast friends. Stock captured Dean’s essence in a stunning series of images of the actor in the midst of family and friends, as well as alone, sleeping, lost in thought, in the frozen fields of Indiana, and on a rainy day in Manhattan. It was an extraordinary collaboration between two people in full command of their respective talents. In the words of the Life magazine article that accompanied the first publication of these photographs, James Dean was “the most exciting actor to hit Hollywood since Marlon Brando,” but at the time the photographs were taken, he was still poised on the brink of fame. Dennis Stock:James Dean reintroduces these iconic photographs, taken at the dawn and high noon of a brief and brilliant career, with Dennis Stock’s original accompanying text and a later introduction by Joe Hyams. 125 black-and-white photographs

In 1968, Magnum photographer Dennis Stock took a 5-week road trip along the California highways, documenting the height of the counterculture hippie scene. These black and white photos were compiled to create California Trip, originally published in 1970, and became an emblem of the free love movement that continued to inspire throughout the decades. In print for the first time since its 1970 publication, California Trip is a faithful reproduction of Stock’s timeless work.

This stunning book is a paean to Dennis Stock, a photographer whose intimate portraits captured iconic figures and historic moments. A member of the historic Magnum Photos cooperative, Dennis Stock took classic portraits of actors, jazz singers, and hippies, as well as photographs of the natural beauty of Hawaii, the Far East, Japan, and Alaska. Arguably, Stock’s most famous portrait is of the actor James Dean walking through Times Square in 1955―the year of his death. The image quickly became a symbol and precursor of the youth movement of the 1960s. Stock’s relationship with Dean is the subject of a new film, Life, chronicling Dean and Stock’s travels across the US. In addition to the portraits of Dean, this collection includes a dazzling selection from Stock’s oeuvre. An insightful essay introduces the photographer along with an extensive biography.

Appropriately, Dennis Stock discovered the sun as the central graphic element of his own life while on assignment to the golden hills of Umbria, Italy. He was there to photograph the landscapes that had become so central to the philosophy of St. Francis of Assisi, and, inspired by that experience and by St. Francis' own record of gratitude for his celestial ''brother,'' Stock set out to begin the major work of his career -- a photographic appreciation of the sun. The quest has taken Dennis Stock to almost every comer of the earth. And this book may be but the first published installment of all the images he will have recorded when the quest is done. Once, a friend examining the photographer's portfolio inquired of Stock: "Where did you take all these pictures of the sun?" And Stock, like St. Francis a bit of a mystic himself, replied: "That's what I'm trying to find out." Good photography is an introspective art. Increasingly, people of all ages are turning to the camera not so much to arrest a particular image as to explore their own responses to the world around them. In this sense, then, they will find a credible mentor in Dennis Stock, whose photographs are never obvious but always unique. From his opening statement -- a risen sun breaking the day through spears of marsh gr...

Dennis Stock: American Cool
Dennis Stock: American
The first anthology dedicated to one of the greatest American photographers of the 20th century, Dennis Stock, during his most celebrated period of the 1950s–1970s. Undisputedly one of America's greatest photographers, in early 1955 Dennis Stock captured one of the iconic images of the 20th century: the black-and-white image of the unknown James Dean walking across a deserted Times Square, trademark cigarette in hand, a brooding and introspective figure hunched into his oversized coat, braced against the rain and set against the backdrop of the Manhattan skyline. Stock took a series of photographs in New York, Hollywood and in Dean's hometown of Fairmount, Indiana. Stock went on to photograph Marlon Brando, Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn resting her head on a car window on the cusp of fame, JFK on the campaign trail. His catalogue of work throughout this period reflects his ability to empathize with his subjects but not become subservient to them. In the late 1950s, Stock’s focus shifted to the leading jazz musicians and performers of the day; this book contains some of the best photographs ever taken of artists such as Duke Ellington, Billie Holiday, Charlie Parker, Miles Davies and Louis Armstrong. This book is a beautiful tribute to Stock’s timeless legacy and complete a...

Talent Wins: The New Playbook for Putting People
Radical Advice for Reinventing Talent--and HRMost executives today recognize the competitive advantage of human capital, and yet the talent practices their organizations use are stuck in the twentieth century.Typical talent-planning and HR processes are designed for predictable environments, traditional ways of getting work done, and organizations where "lines and boxes" still define how people are managed. As work and organizations have become more fluid--and business strategy is no longer about planning years ahead but about sensing and seizing new opportunities and adapting to a constantly changing environment--companies must deploy talent in new ways to remain competitive.Turning conventional views on their heads, talent and leadership experts Ram Charan, Dominic Barton, and Dennis Carey provide leaders with a new and different playbook for acquiring, managing, and deploying talent--for today's agile, digital, analytical, technologically driven strategic environment--and for creating the HR function that business needs.

Dennis Feldman: Hollywood Boulevard: 1969-1972
Dennis Feldman: Hollywood Boulevard:
For three years, Dennis Feldman (born 1946) repeatedly walked an eight-block stretch from Hollywood and Vine to the Chinese Theater, called the Walk of Fame, where people flocked to gaze at a sidewalk full of terrazzo stars inlaid with the names of famous (and no longer famous) entertainers. He became obsessed with photographing the characters that gathered there, drawn to the world of stardom, parading their self-made identities--macho and gay, masculine and feminine, biker and hippy--modeled after American archetypes molded by the entertainment industry and the social revolution of the 1960s. Hollywood Boulevard compiles the photographer's large-format, black-and-white portraits into a painfully human character study of social identity and performance.

The King of Style: Dressing Michael Jackson
The King of Style: Dressing Michael
The King of Style: Dressing Michael Jackson is a fascinating look at the intersection of music and fashion, as well as an homage to Michael Jackson’s brilliant fusing of costume, personality, and performance to create his iconic image.Through his music, dance, and fashion, Michael Jackson created a mystique that was unique to him and recognized as such throughout the world. For five decades he mesmerized audiences—and for twenty-five of those years Michael Bush was there as Jackson’s designer, stylist, and friend, accompanying the King of Pop on his journey to becoming the King of Style. While paying homage to the original Billie Jean, Beat It, and Thriller looks that put Jackson on the fashion map, The King of Style also traces their evolution over several decades. Jackson’s penchant for the military silhouette is explored in detail, along with the trade secrets behind the sequined glove and the fencing uniform that he, Michael Bush, and Dennis Tompkins reinvented to make stage magic. It was Bush who dressed Jackson for the final time, before he was buried. Dozens of garments were left unfinished by his shocking death. The legacy of Michael Jackson lives on. An artist like none other, he transformed everything he touched—from the fabric of his clothes to his legions o...
