A Role for Artists in Troubled Times: Essays by a rebellious photographer/filmmaker (Paperback)

Usually despatched within 2 weeks.


An impassioned, erudite set of essays by an award-winning filmmaker, photographer and rebelliously inveterate man of conscience.

The imperative of art in our lives now, as always, but as never before. As the current political, cultural word threatens to suffocate our consciousnesses, the author fearlessly throws down the gauntlet to his readers and fellow practitioners. Here is a list of ideas to incite artists to action through their work. A journey through his unlearned childhood to the revelation of fine arts, literature and especially his beloved photography. An essay on the practice of photography: a guide to discovering form, content, and techniques. And finally, his dream to overcome the limitations of the world we all of us share.

EDUCATION Robert Golden was educated at Monteith Collage, in Detroit, Michigan, studying intellectual history for which he was nominated as a Woodrow Wilson Scholar. He graduated University of Michigan with a BA in Modern European History and a BS in Design. He also attended the London School of Film Technique. PHOTOGRAPHY In his early career he worked with many magazines and newspapers, creating photo-essays and stories for articles. He also was commissioned to photograph well know actors, politicians and others, producing magazine, book and record covers. He pioneered a new style of advertising and editorial food photography; conceived and shot ten award winning books called the 'PEOPLE WORKING SERIES' published by Penguin; a book about unemployment called DOWN THE ROAD, and was a major contributor to THE AMERICAN AIR AND SPACE and the NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM CATALOGUES. He became Chairman of the Association of Photographers and created the Association Awards, which have since become the most well-known and respected photography awards in Britain for which he received the Chairman's Award in 1996. He has trained several well-known photographers: Fay Godwin, Eamonn McCabe, and Robin Broadbent.
