AARON SISKIND: Pleasures and Terrors

Boston: Little, Brown and Company, 1982. First Edition. Hardcover. Critical biography of the American photographer whose career paralleled the development of the abstract expressionist painters, many of whom were his close friends. Siskind (1903-91) focused on the details of nature and architecture, presenting them as flat surfaces to create a new image out of them, which, he claimed, stands independent of the original subject. Features 74 duotone and 198 halftone illustrations. Quarto. Original brown cloth binding, with silver titles. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket. Fine / Fine. Item #69629
ISBN: 0821215221
