Within the Frame is a book about finding and expressing your photographic vision, specifically where people, places, and cultures are concerned. A personal book full of real-world wisdom and incredible images, author David duChemin (of pixelatedimage.com) shows you both the how and the why of finding, chasing, and expressing your vision with a camera to your eye. Vision leads to passion, and passion is a cornerstone of great photography. With it, photographs draw the eye in and create an emotional experience. Without it, a photograph is often not worth—and can’t capture—a viewer’s attention. Both instructional and inspirational, Within the Frame helps you on your photographic journey to make better images of the places and people you love, whether they are around the world or in your own backyard. duChemin covers how to tell stories, and the technology and tools we have at our disposal in order to tell those narratives. Most importantly, he stresses the crucial theme of vision when it comes to photographing people, places, and cultures—and he helps you cultivate and find your own vision, and then fit it within the frame.

From Within the Frame

Storytelling in African-American Fiction

Author: Bertram D. Ashe

The book explores the written representation of African-American oral storytelling from Charles Chesnutt, Zora Neale Hurston and Ralph Ellison to James Alan McPherson, Toni Cade Bambara and John Edgar Wideman. At its core, the book compares the relationship of the "frame tale"-an inside-the-text storyteller telling a tale to an inside-the-text listener-with the relationship between the outside-the-text writer and reader. The progression is from Chesnutt's 1899 frame texts, in which the black spoken voice is contained by a white narrator/listener, to Bambara's sixties-era example of a "frameless" spoken voice text, to Wideman's neo-frame text of the late 20th century.

Beyond the Frame

Women of Color and Visual Representation

Author: N. Tadiar,A. Davis

Publisher: Springer

Category: Social Science

Beyond the Frame explores the importance of visual images in the identities and material conditions of women of color as they relate to social power, oppression, and resistance. The goal of the collection is to rethink the category of visual theory through women of color. It also explores the political and social ramifications of visual imagery for women of color, and the political consciousness that can emerge alongside a critical understanding of the impact of visual imagery. The book begins with a general exploration of what it means to develop a women of color criticism (rather than an analysis of women of color), and goes on to look specifically at topics such as 90s fashion advertisements, the politics of cosmetic surgery, and female fans of East LA rock bands.

Ever since the first generation of man, whereby our first patriarch, Adam, and matriarch, Eve, were commanded by God on what to do if they were to live and enjoy a happy life of perpetual peace and prosperity (Genesis 2: 1617) right up to our own generation today (2014), numerous prophets, prophetesses, philosophers, statesmen, scientists, and jurists alike have also arisen echoing the same. These include, for example, Hosea, Isaiah, Micah, Samuel, Jeremiah,etc. (prophets); Miriam, Deborah, Anna, etc. (prophetesses); Confucious, Socrates, Zeno, Thomas Hobbes, Jeremy Bentham, John Stuart Mill, John Locke, etc. (philosophers); Ur-Num, Hammurabi, Marcus Tullis Cicero, Woodrow Wilson, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, Marcus Garvey, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Kwame Nkrumah, Patrice Lumumba, Nelson Madiba Mandela, etc. (statesmen); Hugo Grotius, L. Oppenheim, H. Lauterpacht, Hans Kelsen, Louis B. Sohn, etc (jurists); Albert Einstein, Inis L. Claude Jr., Robert J. Oppenheimer, Sir Norman Angell, Raymond Aron, Henri Saint-Simon, Immanuel Kant, David Easton, etc (scientists); and more so, the Founding Fathers of The United Nations in 1945. But like Gods effort, all their efforts also have fallen on mans deaf ears, leading humanity to a perpetual perish (Hosea 4:6). Using a case study methodology, this book has established that various forms of conflict perennially scourging the international community are influenced by obsessive self-seeking political passions for national interest defined in terms of power; that these passions are cunningly packaged in dangerous principles of sovereign equality and domestic jurisdiction and the doctrine of survival of the fittest; that it is these viruses that have always undermined and consequently retarded the United Nations efforts to realize fully its mandate as the chief custodian of world peace and security as was intended by its Founding Fathers in 1945 when all nation-states had already proved totally incapable of achieving this elusive goal, thus leading to the eruption of both World War I and II; that this tragedy is a function of mans paradoxical nature, his appetite for both peace and war; that although man is endowed with a unique natural ability to listen and understand better than all other members of the animal kingdom, unfortunately, like Adam and Eve, man is a perpetual hostage to his own double standard nature, which consequently does not allow him to pass an acid test on the virtue of pacta sunt servanda (honesty); and finally that this is why the wishes of the Founding Fathers of the United Nations contained in both the preamble and entire charter have always failed to bear fruit in full since its inception. Hence, an urgent need for an emergency revival of the original concept of this world bodys role by depreciating the existing dangerous supremacy of nation-states sovereignty and legitimacy in appreciation of the sovereignty and legitimacy of the United Nations as a panacea. This pragmatic innovation is cost-effective and, therefore, extremely necessary. Like a nation-states effectively authoritative responsibility over its intercitizen interaction within its respective nation-state jurisdiction, this newly revitalized world body could similarly possess an effectively authoritative responsibility over its interstate interaction, including acts of all nonstate actors within its international jurisdiction. Also, it would be able to contain both those viruses stated above and pathological tendencies of certain temporary insane actor(s) from emotionally resorting to thermonuclear, biological, or any other means of suicide mass terrorism/ genocide as ones payoff option to the source(s) of ones long helpless frustration and suffering that could consequently lead humanity to an automatic global Doomsday simply because of absence of such a needed world body to serve as an umpire for all in conformity with the wishes of the UN Founding Fathers.

Planting Your Family Tree Online is designed to take you step-by-step through the process of creating a genealogy Web site. When people begin their genealogical adventure, they usually interview elderly members of the family and contact other family members. The next step is usually one of organization of the information collected. The third step is usually to share this information with other family members, traditionally by publishing research in a book. However, a family Web site has numerous advantages: It is interactive so others can contribute their stories and pictures. It will help you find long-lost relatives. It is an ideal way to preserve research for the entire family. It will break down the walls that have stumped you in your research. It recognizes that family research is an ongoing process, This book is written by Cyndi Howells, owner and webmaster of Cyndi's List, a Web site of more than 130,000 online genealogical resources. Cyndi points out, "This book is loaded with URLs to Web sites that will give you everything you need to create a beautiful family tree online." However, Web site URLs change daily and some may no longer work. She has created web pages as part of Cyndi's List that correspond to the features of the book so that the URLs will be kept up-to-date.
