Home: Art Images for College Teaching AICT is a royalty-free image exchange resource for the educational community. Art Images for College Teaching (AICT) began as a personal project dedicated to the principle of free exchange of image resources for and among members of the educational community. While the AICT site is maintained and distributed under the general auspices of the Minneapolis College of Art & Design (MCAD), this institution is not responsible for content or use thereof. All work on the AICT project has been voluntary, and MCAD-affiliated personnel have contributed innumerable hours of research, clerical, and design effort on a pro-bono basis.

Philippe Halsman On the Creation of Photographic Ideas [EN] Version française The Jeu de Paume online magazine reproduces here the first part of Philippe Halsman’s book entitled Halsman on the Creation of Photographic Ideas. Published in 1961, two years after his famous Jump Book, the book shows how the photographer approached his medium by non-judgementally contrasting his own creative angle, driven mainly by his imagination, with the reporter’s angle based on a sensitivity of perception and search for the truth that he called “candid photography”. He associated the term with Henri Cartier-Bresson. On the Creation of Photographic Ideas is actually the content of a seminar written by Halsman when he was working at the Famous Photographers School, which opened that year modelled on the Famous Artists School in Westport, Connecticut. Halsman was one of the school’s ten founder members alongside Richard Avedon, Richard Beattie, Joseph Costa, Arthur d’Arazien, Alfred Eisenstaedt, Harry Garfield, Irving Penn, Eszra Stoller and Bert Stern.

Hi-Fructose Magazine In his portrait series, the Austrian artist Aldo Tolino deconstructs, folds, reassembles and weaves printed photographs in order to create origami-like sculptural pieces. Tolino then re-photographs the works, converting the pieces back into two-dimensional objects. The disturbing quality of the images may not just be due to the fact that the folded faces appear distorted, disproportional and almost entirely stripped of identity. In their conversion back to a photographic object, these pieces also suggest a cycle of infinite reprocessing and deformation, wherein the portrait will only continue to move further away from the original “true” image. This perhaps serves to remind us of the precarious nature of photography itself; the lack of control we have over photographic images, the instability of their meaning and function, which can be both liberating and unsettling.

Effets de Miroir - Daniel Kukla Daniel Kukla is a photographer who had formal training in biological and anthropological sciences. His educational background plays a major part of his artistic practice, and this can be seen in his clever project titled, The Edge Effect. In the description and explanation of the project, Kukla writes, In March of 2012, I was awarded an artist’s residency by the United States National Park Service in southern California’s Joshua Tree National Park. Medieval art history and the web 2.0. A selection of online resources for medievalists This simple overview of Internet resources for historians of medieval art is a “work in progress”, which can already help scholars and students. The current list of principally open access resources will be completed, modified, reshaped (as well as the proposed categories) and your ideas are important to make this tool a useful one for our daily scientific activity. I thus welcome any suggestion for improvement ! The web links cover the fields that I know best and only reflect my own (French) practice : medieval art (mainly stone sculpture, ivories and wall painting), medieval architecture, cultural and built heritage, archives and libraries of particular interest to medievalists. - Medieval and Renaissance art history – Main portals, websites, blogs and newsfeeds :
