Heinecken: Selected Works, 1966-1986. Photographs by Robert Heinecken. Edited by Maya Ishiwata. Introduction by Mark Johnstone. Gallery Min, Tokyo, 1986. Large square quarto. Photo-illustrated. Wrappers. 6 halftone and 29 full color plates. 74 pp.
A beautifully produced exhibition catalogue from the Gallery Min on the work of Robert Heinecken, including selections from his "He:/She:" series, the "Are You Rea" series, "Lessons in Posing Subjects," "Hite/Hustler," and "Socio-Duo-Habliment Studies." In his introductory essay, Mark Johnstone describes Heinecken's work as dealing with the ideologically charged messages that proliferate in popular culture, especially in advertising: " Heinecken's work asks two vital questions: 1)How have these messages shaped us? and 2)Can casual contact with this information produce meaningful images?" A fine collection of thought-provoking images.
A Fine copy with some edge wear, rubbing, and soiling to wrappers.
