Wynn Bullock, who had achieved acclaim as a tenor on the European concert tour as a young man, began photographing as a hobbyist while he worked in his family's real estate business in West Virginia during the Depression. His enthusiasm for the medium and gradual commitment to becoming an artist with the camera, led him to enroll in the Los Angeles Art Center. The rest, as we like say, is history. His eye gravitated to nature, to the human form, to abstract details, to experimenting with light. This monograph presents a representative collection of eighty-eight images spanning thirty-five years of work.
A fine copy, with just minor soiling at edges of the dustjacket and a faint, soft ripple to the top and bottom page edges.
