    Art Of Photography (The)
    A successful photograph does one of several things. It allows, or forces, the viewer to see something that he has looked at many times without really seeing; it shows him something he has never previously encountered; or, it raises questions - perhaps ambiguous or unanswerable - that create mysteries, doubts, or uncertainties. In other words, it expands our vision and our thoughts. It extends our horizons. It evokes awe, wonder, amusement, compassion, horror, or any of a thousand responses. It sheds new light on our world, raises questions about our world, or creates its own world.

    In this sweeping and authoritative book, Dr. Nolan Gasser - a composer, pianist, and musicologist, and the chief architect of the Music Genome Project, which powers Pandora Radio - breaks down what musical taste is, where it comes from, and what our favorite songs say about us. Dr. Gasser delves into the science, psychology, and sociology that explains why humans love music so much; how our brains process music; and why you may love Queen but your best friend loves Kiss.

    Handmade Silver Gelatin Emulsion Print (The)

    In 1949, Kodak offered a staggering variety of paper choices. It seems unlikely that anyone at the time anticipated the changes in photography that were to come, but in 2005, Kodak stopped making paper. Since then, different printing papers, manufactured by various companies around the world, have come and gone. Silver gelatin photographic materials - paper and film - were the backbone of mainstream photography for over a century. Today, digital is the new mainstream, and silver gelatin is joining the family of alternative and historical processes.

    One difference that distinguishes 'silver gelatin' from other historical processes is its enormous breadth and depth. It is, in fact, a multitude of individual processes. Paper making alone encompasses dozens of possibilities.
