The Troubles in Photographs and Words
Author: Steafan Hanvey
World-renowned Northern Irish photographer, Bobbie Hanvey, captured some of The Troubles' most defining and devastating moments. Bobbie is lauded as much for these photographs as he is for his iconic portraits of figures like Seamus Heaney, Gerry Adams, Brian Friel, and Ian Paisley. In Reconstructions, these photographs take on even greater resonance when set in context by Bobbie's eldest son, singer-songwriter and poet, Steafán Hanvey. Inspired by the photographs, he often witnessed coming to life in the darkroom, Steafán's memories of a childhood less ordinary are presented in a lyric poetry filled with startling imagery and insights that capture the wit, cadences, anguish, and dreams of the people of Northern Ireland. Reconstructions daringly conflates the public and the private, and acts as a timely reminder of just how futile and unnecessary internecine conflict really is. But most of all, Bobbie and Steafán, father and son, have produced a book that is a testament to the strength and resilience of ordinary people living through extraordinary times.

Explore the dynamic interplay between copy and image! This frequently overlooked yet critical element of modern photojournalism is the subject of Pictures & Words. This title leads readers on an extraordinary investigation into the use of photos and accompanying captions in seven distinct areas: news, features, illustrations, art, advertising, fashion, and technology/science. The book begins by offering a window into the origin of modern photojournalism from its beginnings in Europe in the 1930s, complete with examples from historical archives that showcase how changes in meaning can result from the way words and photos are combined. Equipped with these lessons, readers delve into the roles of today's photographers, photo editors, copy editors, and reporters by tracing the path of a photograph and its accompanying caption from initial assignment to final appearance in a newspaper. Further insights are gleaned as readers go inside National Geographic, examining the importance of the feature photographs that accompany articles and documentary-style looks at subjects such as poverty, pollution, politics, and more. Here, emphasis is on understanding the interaction of photographer, writer and editor as they decide on captions and/or copy blocks. The final chapter of the book distinguishes between photos and illustrations, with guidelines for using stock photos and solutions for handling copyright problems and permissions. The result is a photojournalism handbook that speaks to both photographer and writer, empowering each with a richer appreciation of how their photographs and words are successfully linked.

Author: Paul Theroux
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
One of the most acclaimed travel writers of our time turns his unflinching eye on an American South too often overlooked Paul Theroux has spent fifty years crossing the globe, adventuring in the exotic, seeking the rich history and folklore of the far away. Now, for the first time, in his tenth travel book, Theroux explores a piece of America -- the Deep South. He finds there a paradoxical place, full of incomparable music, unparalleled cuisine, and yet also some of the nation's worst schools, housing, and unemployment rates. It's these parts of the South, so often ignored, that have caught Theroux's keen traveler's eye. On road trips spanning four seasons, wending along rural highways, Theroux visits gun shows and small-town churches, laborers in Arkansas, and parts of Mississippi where they still call the farm up the road "the plantation." He talks to mayors and social workers, writers and reverends, the working poor and farming families -- the unsung heroes of the south, the people who, despite it all, never left, and also those who returned home to rebuild a place they could never live without. From the writer whose "great mission has always been to transport us beyond that reading chair, to challenge himself -- and thus, to challenge us" (Boston Globe), Deep South is an ode to a region, vivid and haunting, full of life and loss alike.
