The Magnum photographer's powerful images from South and Southeast Asia. This is a portfolio of the best of Steve McCurry's photography, showing classical, magical and powerful images from South and Southeast Asia. McCurry makes photographs all over the world, for National Geographic magazine and his own projects, but it is the people, places, colours and forms of South and Southeast Asia that Steve has found most inspiring. It is in Afghanistan, India, Sri Lanka, Cambodia and Mynamar (Burma) that McCurry has captured his most sublime photographs to create images that transcend their original editorial purpose to become timeless classics of our era. South Southeast features 69 photographs, each one with a full double-page spread to itself. Introducing the book is a succinct text about McCurry, and accompanying the photographs are brief captions. Eight of the photographs are accompanied by short texts written by McCurry himself, telling the fascinating stories behind the striking images. The National Press Photographers Association and the Missouri School of Journalism 'Pictures of the Year Competition' awarded this book First Place in the Best Use of Photography category.

American photographer Steve McCurry (b. 1950) is universally recognized as one of today's finest image-makers and has won many of photography's top awards. This special limited-edition monograph brings together the most memorable and beautiful of his images, taken around the world over the last 30 years. McCurry's ability to cross boundaries of language and culture to capture fleeting moments of human experience is unique. With his discerning eye for form and colour, shape and symmetry, he offers us windows into other worlds. Seen at the large scale of this new book, McCurry's images are particularly powerful: reproduced at slightly larger than life size, his portraits have an extraordinary immediacy and impact, while even the smallest details of his spectacular landscapes are clearly visible on the page. In this title, portraits of children, pilgrims and farmers are presented alongside views of ancient temples, busy city streets, dramatic mountain landscapes and quiet scenes of daily life - people are seen fishing, playing, working and praying. The images are presented in an uninterrupted sequence for maximum impact, and all the photographs are shown at either full-page size or as double-page spreads. The extended picture captions are at the back of the book, accompanied by colour thumbnail images for quick identification.

Ein grandioses Spiel mit historischen und fiktiven Ereignissen vor dem Hintergrund der Schacholympiade 1939 in Buenos Aires. In Buenos Aires findet im Sommer 1939 die Schacholympiade statt. Während des Turniers bricht der Zweite Weltkrieg aus, und viele Spieler, unter ihnen Mirko Czentovic, der fiktive Schachweltmeister aus Stefan Zweigs »Schachnovelle«, kehren nicht mehr in ihre Heimatländer zurück, vor allem Juden bleiben dort. Ein Schach-Roman, der historische Fakten und reale Persönlichkeiten mit literarischen Elementen und Figuren mischt und Zug um Zug eine ganz besondere Zeit in einer besonderen Stadt zum Leben erweckt. Heinz Magnus, der Großvater des Autors, kommt auf der Flucht vor den Nazis nach Buenos Aires. Während der Schacholympiade lernt er die deutsche Schachmeisterin Sonja Graf kennen und verliebt sich in sie. Der Enkel Ariel Magnus rekonstruiert die Geschichte dieser nicht erwiderten Liebe. Sonja bleibt wie Heinz in Argentinien, sie beginnen in dieser Stadt wie so viele deutsche Emigranten ein neues Leben. Auch Stefan Zweig hält sich kurz dort auf und veröffentlicht im Exil seine »Schachnovelle«, ein Buch, das auch viele Jahrzehnte später noch den Enkel mit seinem Großvater verbinden wird. Ein Roman wie das Leben selbst: überraschend, angriffslustig und geistreich.

The Science of Biometrics: Security Technology for Identity Verification covers the technical aspects of iris and facial recognition, focusing primarily on the mathematical and statistical algorithms that run the verification and identification processes in these two modalities. Each chapter begins with a review of the technologies, examining how they work, their advantages and disadvantages, as well as some of their established market applications. Numerous approaches are examined. Facial recognition is much more of an emerging biometric technology than iris recognition; therefore, there are more algorithms that are currently being developed in that area. After this review, numerous applications of these two modalities are covered as well, some of which have just been commercially deployed while others are under research and development. Chapters 3 and 4 conclude with case studies to provide further application review. This book is directed to security managers, electronic security system designers, consultants, and system integrators, as well as electronic security system manufacturers working in access control and biometrics.

McCurry’s photographs eloquently illustrate a country of contradictions, where the contemporary battles with the ancient and the spiritual clashes with the secular. Striking portraits of men and women, are presented alongside timeless images of children at play and shepherds tending their flocks and ancient sandstone cities are contrasted with shanty-towns constructed from tattered tarpaulins. The famous mountainous landscapes and ancient temples are shown together with scenes of daily life, such as a bread seller at his kiosk or traders at a market. McCurry’s unique ability to cross boundaries of language and culture to capture stories of human experience is fully exhibited in this remarkable new collection of images.
