Images of Modern America: Akron by local author Calvin Rydbom uses over 100 stunning images to document this thriving Ohio city’s modern history. Once known as the “Rubber Capital of the World,” Akron now hails as the “City of Invention.” As the fifth-largest city in Ohio, it has grown from an industrial center to a hub of culture and science. During this change, Akron’s downtown went from a vibrant retail district to being somewhat empty; however, the city was reborn with a baseball stadium for the Akron RubberDucks (the Double-A affiliate of the Cleveland Indians), new restaurants, concert venues, and in its role as a host for national events such as the 2014 Gay Games. As recently as 20 years ago, rubber workers made up a large part of Akron’s population, but the number of people employed in the rubber industry dropped by half between 2000 and 2007. In 2001, Akron was named among the country’s 10 high-tech havens by Newsweek, and it is now considered the center of “Polymer Valley.”

Images of America: Akron

$21.99
Best known as the "Rubber Capital of the World," Akron, Ohio, was a major player in many industries long before Benjamin F. Goodrich moved there in 1870. From humble canal town to global industry giant, Akron rode the economic roller coaster through the Depression, wars, strikes, and financial booms. As a major manufacturing center of everything from sewer pipe to matches to oatmeal, Akron lured prospective workers from other towns, states, and even countries. This lively mix of diverse cultures helped to create Akron's unique beauty and boundless spirit. Akron, Ohio, examines this special blend of industry, culture, tight-knit neighborhoods, and high society through historic photographs and images-some seen here for the first time.

Barbara Probst

$60
In this photo series, Barbara Probst plays with the changing perspectives and fleeting moments of urban life. Using a shutter-release mechanism controlled by radio waves, Probst is able to use up to 14 cameras to simultaneously shoot a scene from a distance and from numerous angles. Together, the various camera viewpoints and framings (as well as different objects and film material) result in a series of views that are not bound by stylistic features, the same genre or formal proximity. The images are held together only by the point in time at which the shutter was released.

Barbara Probst

$60
In this photo series, German photographer Barbara Probst (born 1964) plays with the changing perspectives and fleeting moments of urban life, posing fundamental questions about photography and imagery. Using a shutter-release mechanism controlled by radio waves, Probst is able to use up to 14 cameras to simultaneously shoot a scene from a distance and from numerous angles. Together, the various camera viewpoints and framings (as well as different objects and film material) result in a series of views that are not bound by stylistic features, the same genre or formal proximity. The images are held together only by the point in time at which the shutter was released, yet the arrangement of the photographs is so sophisticated that it creates intriguing dramaturgies that make reference to a variety of photographic genres.

O. Winston Link: Life Along The Line

$40

O. Winston Link photographed the Norfolk and Western, the last major steam railroad in the United States, when it was converting its operations from steam to diesel in the 1950s. Link’s N&W project captured the industry at a moment of transition, before the triumph of the automobile and the airplane that ended an era of passenger rail service. His work also revealed a small-town way of life that was about to experience seismic shifts and, in many cases, vanish completely.

Including a collection of more than 180 of Link’s most famous works and rare images that have never before been published, O. Winston Link: Life Along the Line by Tony Reevy offers a moving account of the people and communities surrounding the last steam railroad.

The book includes a cd of Link's recordings of the railroad.

Delighting in the look and feel of books, conceptual artist Nina Katchadourian's playful photographic series proves that books' covers—or more specifically, their spines—can speak volumes. Over the past two decades, Katchadourian has perused libraries across the globe, selecting, stacking, and photographing groupings of two, three, four, or five books so that their titles can be read as sentences, creating whimsical narratives from the text found there. Thought-provoking, clever, and at times laugh-out-loud funny (one cluster of titles from the Akron Museum of Art's research library consists of: Primitive Art/Just Imagine/Picasso/Raised by Wolves), Sorted Books is an enthralling collection of visual poems full of wry wit and bookish smarts.
