All American. Burk Uzzle. St. David's Books, Inc. in association with Aperture/published in France in collaboration with Contrejour, 1984. First edition. Large quarto. White cloth with bold black lettering in photo-illustrated dustjacket. Introduction by Martha Chahroudi + list of plates + 94 full or double page photographs. AUTOGRAPHED BY UZZLE on the half-title page.
A retrospective collection of ten years of Uzzle's photographic images of America, published in conjunction with an exhibition at The Philadelphia Museum of Art. Uzzle, whose work spanned three decades at the time this book was published, had been a contract photographer for LIFE Magazine and a member (and President) of Magnum. He has an eye for the exuberant, iconoclastic side of American life and the way in which he frames his images increases their bite. The ninety-four images were printed in rich gravure in France.
A very fine copy in fine dustjacket.
