Richard Misrach. Photographs 1975-1987. Introduction by Myriam Weisang. Gallery Min, Tokyo, 1988. Unpaged. Square quarto. Photo-illustrated wrappers. Numerous color reproductions.
This early retrospective catalogue remains one of Misrach's most important titles. Published to accompany an exhibition at Tokyo's Gallery Min it is richly printed and contains many gorgeous images not reproduced in other monographs. Included are many of Misrach's evocative early works--long-exposure nighttime studies of cacti, stones, and palms--later nearly surrealist images of the Parthenon at night, as well swamps and jungles. The book conclude with more recent desert canto series, and images from the Bravo 20 project.
A gorgeous, Very Fine copy of this scarce and very important Misrach item; only the slightest traces of shelf wear.
