Riassunto: Since the inception of photography in the early nineteenth century, photographs have been made, used, collected, and discarded in greatly increasing numbers. Despite the photograph's persistence in daily life, until recently most types of everyday photography have remained unexamined by historians and have been absent from the walls of galleries and museums. In response to this omission, some scholars have begun to consider photography as a "vernacular" practice.This reframing of the history of photography serves as the starting point for "In the Vernacular: Photography of the Everyday". "In the Vernacular" utilizes the Rodger Kingston Collection - a collection of approximately 4,000 vernacular images including snapshots, wedding photographs, news and advertising images, insurance pictures, family pictures, travel albums, grade-school class portraits, and pin-up photographs - as the rich visual source material for its exploration of photography of the everyday. The publication includes 75 full-colour reproductions organized thematically, as well as an introductory essay by Ross Barrett and Stacey McCarroll Cutshaw, plus essays on the vernacular and the Kingston Collection by Bernard L.Herman and Daile Kaplan. The book also includes one of the first comprehensive bibliographies on the subject of vernacular photography.
L'autore: Stacey McCarroll Cutshaw was Director & Curator of the Boston University Art Gallery from 2002 to 2007, where she co-curated, with Ross Barrett, In the Vernacular: Everyday Photographs from the Rodger Kingston Collection and organized the accompanying two-day academic conference "Vernacular Reframed." She has published book reviews in Afterimage and Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society, as well as short essays and catalog entries in The Chronicle Review and The Encyclopedia of Twentieth Century Photography.
Ross Barrett is a Ph.D. candidate in art history at Boston University, specializing in American art, architecture, and visual culture of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. He is the 2006-2008 Wyeth Fellow in American Art at the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts (CASVA), and has previously held fellowships from the American Council of Learned Societies and the American Antiquarian Society.

Descrizione libro Boston University Art Gallery, Boston, 2008. Softcover. Bw-photographic wraps with orange spine. 96 pages with 75 photo reproductions. "Our particular exploration of vernacular photography began with the ideas that developed into the exhibition In the Vernacular: everyday photographs from the Rodger Kingston Collection, on view at the Boston University Art Gallery from November 5, 2004 to January 23, 2005. The exhibition was the first to highlight fully the exceptional breadth and variety of the Rodger Kingston Collection. Since the 1970s, Kingston has assembled a vast collection of visually striking images, primarily by anonymous photographers . This publication includes an even smaller selection of 70 key images . In making our selections to signify the many types of photographs at play in our everyday existence, we were able to pick particularly rich and engaging examples. The types of images and objects reproduced will be familiar to the contemporary viewer: snapshots, wedding photographs, news and advertising images, family pictures, travel albums, school portraits, pin-ups, calendars, identification badges, photo buttons, and even a photographic bandana."--Preface.
