Heinecken. Edited by James Enyeart. With Contributions by Marvin Bell, Carl Chiarenza, Candida Finkel, Charles Hagen, William Jenkins and John Upton. The Friends of Photography in Association with Light Gallery, Carmel and New York, 1980. Published in an edition of 2000 numbered, signed copies. Oblong quarto. Black cloth with title embossed on front cover; issued without a dustjacket. 158 pp.
An important and handsome monograph on Heinecken's work in the sixties and seventies, with plates throughout in black-and-white and color. In the preface, James Enyeart writes: "Truth, hypocrisy, irony, satire, humor, provocation, sex, religion, politics and visual pleasure are among the variables which constitute Heinecken's aesthetic motives." References to themes of the times abound in his images, but they still resonate today. Perhaps his lasting contribution to twentieth century photography, however, will be his frequent use of other artistic materials and processes in combination with photography.
