Emmet Gowin: Photographs. Text by Martha Chahroudi. Hardbound cloth with dust jacket. Squarish quarto. Philadelphia Museum of Art, Bulfinch Press, Boston, 1990. 127 pp.
Published in conjunction with a major exhibition at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, this handsome volume provides a retrospective look at the first 25 years of Emmet Gowin's career. From his early (and continuing) series of intimate photographs of his wife, children, and extended family, on through his later landscape work-- including images of Mt. St. Helens, Ireland, and the ancient city of Petra in Jordan, as well as several stunning aerial photographs-- this mid-career monograph provides an exciting sampling of Gowin's work. The reproductions are extraordinary.
Half-inch tear and some creasing on dust jacket; some scratching to rear of dust jacket, otherwise Fine.
